This was a last minute booking after the fiasco with another hotel in umhlanga, but as it turns out it was a much better hotel, certainly the best location for everything you could want, the beach, bars and restaurants, and useful shops as well as the touristy ones. Everything is clean and comfortable, and its useful to have a few self catering facilities so you can be completely flexible, especially with the Woolworths store just along the road (for uk people its not like woollies, more like m&s food). I can't find any faults and l would certainly stay here again if only l could be so lucky. I didn't try the restaurant, only because we don't really do breakfast unless it is forced upon us haha, and its really nice that the hotel offers you the choice.
