Loved our stay with Gavin and Mel at Sandals. Spacious rooms, with everything you could require great breakfasts and a good bar. Enjoyed afternoons by the pool and all the recommendations for dinner. Nothing was too much trouble.

We loved our (way too short) stay with Gavin and Malinda at the Sandal's Guest House.. Our room was spacious, and filled with all the comforts and amenities one could wish for, even candy on our bed! Lots of room to unpack, and get comfortable. A gourmet breakfast every morning. A short, safe walk two blocks into town for wonderful...

Staying at Sandals is a blissful experience with the warmth of the two most friendly hosts, Malinda and Gavin. Food is amazing! Rooms are full house with everything that you would need. This guesthouse has a crisp, clean and homely feel to it. The service are definitely top quality. It does not have a commercial atmosphere, which I prefer. It...

We spent 8 very happy days at Sandals Guest House over Christmas. Hosts Gavin and Malinda go the extra mile at every turn and made our stay so memorable.

We stayed for a week over Christmas and feel we got very lucky. Conveniently located a short level walk to Umhlanga Village, Sandals is a real home from home just way better.

This is our third year in Umhlanga Rocks normally staying in the Oyster Box,this year we couldn't get in so we chanced Sandals. I'm so glad we did!
