          Outstanding clean resort with outstanding sea view with two restaurants in the same building on the ground floor with good food and service. Two clean pools with slides for kids.The Sands are so close to shopping malls with transport from the resort

          Once again Umhlanga Sands delivered on a relaxing holiday. Twelve days of sun. The Resort in very well maintained, our room was spotlessly cleaned. All the stafff work hard to make sure all you have to do is relax and enjoy.

          Is there a stove in the 4 sleeper units? I was told that there is by the person who sold me the timeshare week but reviews on here are saying there isn't. Please clarify
