We enjoyed the space of the areas in the apartment the view of the beach from the main bedroom is breath taking. Will definitely visit again. The rooms were clean and well taken care of and the restaurants were very conveniently located.

This resort more than met our expectations, in every way - location, view, comfort; service, in-house entertainment (for adults and children), restaurants, close proximity to shopping malls, outings, etc. We would gladly recommend it to everyone!

People should keep in mind that a 6 sleeper is only a 4 bedroom and 2 couches, not sleeper couches. Not for comfortable sleeping. No stove or oven, so you are forced to eat out. Otherwise the service is good.

It was a pleasure being back at the Umhlanga Sands. The refurbished units, games room and the nearly completed slide pool (next to the family pool) made our stay comfortable. The units are clean and spacious. The sea-facing units makes it easy to spot the dolphins. I always feel that a week is too short to explore the malls, restaurants,...

Stay was excellent, relaxing in such a manner that I could forget work for a while and enjoy myself. Sea view from the room is unmatched, the entire experience has made my mind up for me where to hopefully plan next year's holiday trip.
