Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Despite a well suited location we had a disappointing experience at the Umhlanga Sands. Poor service, with know real willingness to assist with any issues we had. Checked out 4 days early due to this, but never received any follow up calls as to why we left. Rooms are noisy, especially the ones close to the elevators.

Consistently good - the rooms are great, fresh clean and certainly not showing signs of wear and tear. All linen and towels are also wonderful. And everything works! The service is consistently good, one troublesome waiter but dozens of excellent ones. Special mention of Junior who worked at the pool deck, 10/10 for service!

“All rooms have views. Possibly the lower 2x floors may have palm trees limiting the view. The higher ones probably have pool noise.”
