We have owned timeshare at this hotel for nearly 20 years, but rarely used it as we emigrated to Australia. This year we decided that the July school holidays would be at the Sands and we were not disappointed. I'm always wary of security when I holiday anywhere in south africa - but at the Sands in fact throughout the whole of Uhhlanga there was absolutely no need for concern and each morning my husband and I walked along the beachfront from the lighthouse to the reserve.
The kids were down at the pool most days and with access to the beach from the hotel so easy they had a great time.
We rarely ate at the hotel because there are so many great little restaurants and bars in the umhlanga cafe strip about a km up the road but we did try that spur for dinner one evening and it was a good evening .
Entertainment at the Sands was the usual volley ball, games around the pool and a couple of the evenings there was a bring & braai type arrangement (we think the hotel should have provided salads and rolls rather than just the braai and then it becomes expensive to go to the Spur for accompanyments)
If I have a gripe - it's that the hotel does not offer free WiFi - you can buy a voucher for R50 which lasts a day - but it's not secure and for a hotel group like Southern Suns , it was really surprising that throughout the hotel you has to pay, even inhotspots)
Needless to say - we had a great holiday and were very sorry to leave and rather than take another 17 years to return - next tine will definitely be alot sooner
