We stayed here for two nights in the beginning of november 2013. The staff was verry kind, rooms are spacious, but not of a high quality. In our room was a magno which can be nice if you stay longer and want to warm up some food. Breakfast was good although simple, location near the beach and lots of restaurants is perfect. The pool on the roof is nice but verry small. The parking needs to be payed for extra! There are lots of shops in the same area for which you only have to walk out of the hotel! There are better hotel options in the same area. Protea hotels is quit a large group of hotels. Upgrading their hotel in Umhlanga would really make it far more attractive.
