The self catering apartment at the Pearl is exceptional. The 2 bedroom apartment was great. Latest furniture & fittings. The view of the beach & surroundings was absolutely spectacular. Currently undergoing construction, so you need to bear the noise. Not bad though. Weekends is very noisy as there is parties all around, loud music. For a family with kids, this... More

Pearls is conveniently located within walking distance of good restaurants and, cafes and other holiday resorts, and has easy access to the beach. The views from the balcony will be stunning once the construction is complete. For those wishing to sleep in late remember that one of the... More

I stayed at the The Pearls for a conference in Durban. Transportation to and from the International Conference Center took about 20-25 minutes by taxi or car. Uber is quite easy to use in Umhlanga and only half the cost of taxi. The condo was quite spacious with a huge deck overlooking the sea. There are shops, restaurants, and a... More

We regrettably booked two suites from Solina at Pearls of Umhlanga for the Durban July weekend. I have reason to believe that we were proscribed the very moment we arrived. It started when we didn’t produce the first card we used for securing the apartments in January because it had expired, replaced and the owner had destroyed it (who keeps... More

The apartment is very good and equipped with high quality appliances and a high quality finish, but unfortunately we were not properly informed prior to our arrival that we were going to be in the middle of a massive building site (and apparently this is going to continue until December 2017). Although the website mentioned the possible noise, nowhere did... More

We booked our stay through booking.com and would advise you to take a wide berth if thinking of booking through the person advertising on there. The complex itself is fabulous and the location is awesome - but unfortunately the owner is dodgy! Due to title of the advert (The Pearls of Umhlanga Apartment 11-1) we thought that it was "The...

This is the place to be. Perfect location at the beach and good restaurants near by. The building is not a Hotel but residental flats. It makes the building feel empty. The main entrance for walking is towards the beach which make it quite a long walk to get to restaurants.

We had a great stay. There was everything we needed but it would have been great to have had the little extra's - some lights had blown, no coffee pods for the machine and some extra dishwasher tablets.
