This is one of the best places in Durban. We were looking for a place with secure parking, near the beach, especially next to Ushaka Marine World. This place has great rooms for families or couples. I highly recommend it for anyone thinking of family holidays in Durban. Its location is perfect. The problem was that I could only access...

Durban Sands has been there for quite a number of years, and given the amount of traffic that frequents this establishment - one would expect it to be a little tired by now. Well, it is now called 10 South - and the team has done a tremendous job in keeping this place up to date and modern. The check...

The (one-bedroom) apartment we had was spacious, and well-cleaned every day. We had a great view of the beach from our balcony. The location was so-so: on the edge of the great waterfront, but also on the edge of a seedy neighborhood that one cab driver called a 'red-light district.' Service, unfortunately, was poor: wifi never worked in our room,...

It is a decent place with large self-catering rooms. Great views and only a stone's throw from the beach. The night reception is not very effective or friendly on weekends. Internet doesnt work in rooms. I recommend it for families on holiday.

I went there not knowing what to expect. But had a beautiful apartment, sea view from every room and very reasonably priced.

The staff were friendly, but not very efficient during check in. Under cover parking is available in the building at an additional fee, which is only serviced by one of the two elevators. The service elevator was out of order so the cleaning staff used the two guest elevators which caused long delays to go up or down as I...
