We recommend Cabana to all and sundry. the convenience of the resort to the shopping centre as well as the organised lefts to Gateway/The Races/ the Shark Board and Mt Edgecomb is highly appreciated.

The room and kitchen area were to a high standard but overall the exterior of the resort is a bit tired,however it looked like work is being done on this. The staff are friendly and the service is good. Check in and... More

Excellent accommodation. Wonderful position on the beachfront close to a wide selection of restaurants and Gateway shopping centre. Kept spotlessly clean. Hotel staff were friendly and eager to assist. I would highly recommend this resort if you are considering a holiday in beautiful Umhlanga, Kwazulu Natal.

What a pity, such a lovely resort. Unfortunately I wont be going back there and will look for a resort where at least you can have a cigarette in the open air by the adult pool as has been the status quo for the past 26 years that I have had ownership.
