The rooms are amazing: they are recently renovated and excellently laid out with full sea views. They are spacious, comfortable and functional. The resort facilities are mediocre, including an okay restaurant, a Spur and as small spa. The kids entertainment was disappointing. A few activities were great, but most just lasted for 5 minutes and were a poor attempt at... More

We recently returned from a stay at the Sands resort. We were somewhat disappointed in the resort with lack of information when booking in (we stayed in the same room for two weeks but weren't told that we would have to "book in" again for the second week). The room was clean and serviced daily by staff (the staff we... More

Already given. Poor check-in. Poor service. Poor swimming facilities. Noise level of the construction was utterly disturbing and infringed on our relaxation. Every day the staff just promised "tomorrow" the swimming pool will be ready, but then it was not.

Very good. I think the duvets could be lighter - very thick for the warm weather. The check in process should have a sign directing visitors to the "owner" check in. We stood in quite a long line before being directed to the correct check in station.

I have been going to Umhlanga Sands for the last 10 years and will continue to do so for a very long time to come. Comfortable and clean accommodation. Walking distance from everything you need on holiday. Awesomeness Always.

Great value for money. Lovely pools, lots of entertainment and malls and restaurants in the vicinity means you never go hungry plus you're right on the beach. A lovely promenade for walking, jogging and people watching. UPDATE: The only downside was bring woken up at 6am by cleaners in the corridor and our bottle of Ginger being alarmingly depleted, in...

We would like to have had a gym, however modest, at our disposal. This aside, the resort was comfortable, clean, we'll run and the staff were most amiable. We are highly likely to return next year at around the same time to get away from the Johannesburg winter
