Just when you think Cabana Beach couldn't get any better, it does. This time we discovered a new sports area and lovely new braais. Perfect and sheltered. The highlight of the stay (as well as the very comfortable apartments) is the Entertainment team, Iain Moolman, Ruan and Cano. They are such an asset to this wonderful resort. Next door, a...

The service at Cabana Beach is simply not world class....IT IS THE BEST IN THE UNIVERSE!!! This team is really one of the best and compared to other resorts....OUTSTANDING. The maintenance team, front desk, housekeeping all of these people are such a pleasure to deal with...and we will keep coming back (as we have been doing for almost 40 years)....

Excellence on every level. Superb quality entertainment, immaculate facilities, friendliest staff. Ideally situated for easy strolls to beach, restaurants, shops. Fresh seabreeze to be savoured thanks to no smoking rules. Absolutely worth every cent

This is always my favorite holiday! Friendly staff, love the adult pool, games and entertainment. Struggle a lot with allergies so really appreciate the privilege of a non smoking holiday. Although some people still being ignorant to the law and other people's right to health and fresh air, staff always helpful to quickly sort out the problem. Best resort ever!...

We don't miss our February timeshare at Cabana Beach for nothing. This year we had rain BUT that doesn't change all the TOP aspects of this place. We cannot fault the management, staff nor the building. A most WELL DESIGNED, BUILT AND MAINTAINED BUILDING remains a top destination. Being on the sea edge with the energizing WALK or RUN promenade...

My experience at Cabana Beach was phenomenal. The service that is offered by all the friendly staff is commendable. On my arrival, the refreshments with the lively music just sets the holiday mode on. The accommodation is excellent. Just the mere thought that all the mess that I may or may not have made, would all be clear when I...

Always a great place to stay, facilities and service excellent, but the new no-smoking rules and imposed fines smacks of discrimination to smokers. Certainly caused a blemish on an otherwise amazing holiday.

Just love Cabana. Go there every year in March. Big rooms with lots of light and sea sounds. Always clean and fresh. Pool for adults and a separate one for children. Nice slopes at pool overlooking beach. Fair walk down to beach. Lots of restaurants nearby. Comfy main room with big bed and sea view. Lots of entertainment for kids...
