The resort is world class in so far as its outdoors amenities are concerned. Ample space for relaxing at the pool and swimming in three different pools well kept plus a short walk to a very nice beach.

Resort offers plenty of activities for kids, and with the heated pools, and beach on our door step, just complimented our stay. Only downfall was that although the rooms were recently refurbished, they still look OLD and will need...

A weeks timeshare here every year is something I look forward to all year. Beautiful pool area with loungers to recline on, unbrellas for those who like shade, gorgeous weather most of the time and good places to eat all around Umhlanga = bliss!

We stayed here for just one night. The AC is not adjustable, so the rooms seem to be cooler than the lounge area. We were able to have sea facing room, however there was no balcony. Also, you could only access wifi through the reception area. (NOT COOL) The nice thing is the resort had a pool and gym. The...

I had booked to stay for 2 weeks over Christmas & new year. The so called refurbished rooms is average accommodation. Good security. My problem was when the people downstairs used their aircons, serious condensation took place in my unit which left the floors very wet. On the first day I had slipped & fell on my back, fortunately no...
