“Dave's stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Thank you for a lovely holiday.
SUGGESTION: a vegetable rack and a bread bin in the kitchen. a soap dish and toothbrush holder other than a glass in the bathroom. Your staff is very friendly (Janet ) and helpful.

The complex and room is very neat, clean and tidy. The room very comfortable. The location is wonderful, very close to the beach with easy access. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Will most definitely return again.

The rooms are clean and tidy. The lady that comes in every morning was a great help. The flats are a walk away from the beach with life guards on duty at all times. In the area there is also plenty to do and experience with Uvongo as base traveling is greatly reduced. I will gladly recommend Driftsands sea view flats to any one who wants a holiday at affordable rates.

I have been going to driftsands for the passed 10years. The view is fantastic, you can relax just watching the sea view. Near shops and near different beaches. The service is good and all staff are very friendly. This is why I keep going back every year. Thank you to all staff and management.

We had an awesome weekend away. Saturday morning was absolutely wonder watching the dolphins whilst we had breakfast on the balcony.
We celebrated a double occasion, my Husbands Birthday and Mothers Day.

I would love to come soon.

Thank you Drift Sands for giving us wonderful memories.

The service and the people was excellent and cleaning of the room never interfere with our come and goings and the cleaning was also that good , the only thing for us was the fact that we have to go by car when we want to go for dinner every night.
