I have been going to the Sands for many years now. Fantastic holiday resort. Front desk staff is super friendly and helpful, all the staff for that matter. Housekeeping is excellent. What makes Sands special and set it apart from other hotels in Umhlanga is it's great holiday vibe.

Wonderful resort, room, environment and location. Fabulous relaxing time in the sun and enthusiastic, friendly and helpful staff. We could easily walk into the village where there is a great choice of restaurants, supermarkets, fast food outlets and shops.Gateway is not far and has an extensive range of shops and entertainment. great beach a two minutes walk away.

I have never experienced it anywhere that everything is so grouped together to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms are cleaned properly daily. Windows every alternate day.Think the Bingo at the pool a bit overated and noisy every day. Just music is good enough

Excellent until we ate at Mastro, holiday was spoilt, after myself and my niece became ill, my niece missed the sunset cruise, which she was so looking forward to, also being here from the UK she will never be able to return to make up the last couple of days of what started off as a great holiday....

Should have a sign on the door to say "Make Room Up". Only "Do Not Disturb" available. Otherwise rooms cleaned well. Shower difficult to manage. Had a flood a couple of times as couldn't get tap onto bath
