Our 2 week family holiday was a huge dissapoitment compared to the many previuos stays in the same resort in past years. The Cabanas use to be a fantastic family holiday break and no longer is. The welcome, entertainment, food and overall look has definitely declined considerably.

Excellent family holiday resort. Great service and friendly staff. Daily entertainment programmes for adults and kids. Seperate pools for families and over 18s on the resort grounds. Right on the main beach with a good choice of restaurants, shops and entertainment available in Umhlanga Village and Gateway mall. We were there over the Easter weekend and it was very busy....

We can't wait to get back here as often as possible. Our stay at the very private Studios at the adult pool makes one feel like you have your own lawn and pool as part of your room. The kitchen is well appointed and allows for a flexible choice of stay in or eat out throughout your stay

a highly recommended resort in a great location, however it will be interesting to see how the vibe and holiday atmosphere will change as Umhlanga unfolds as the Sandton of the North coast.....as is rapidly taking place.

I Love this Resort. We have been visiting annually for two weeks in March for about thirty years. Best Resort I have ever visited. It is Holy Time in our family. Nothing interferes with this holiday. I can highly recommend.
