Wat a delightful experience visiting the charmed villiage of Uvongo once again since the 80's. Upon our arrival I was pleasantly surprised that we were in fact so close to the beachfront and the view from our patio absolutely exisite. I am a sceptic by nature especially when it comes to the internet and marketing and with the really affordable price that was offered to us was not sure whether the photographs were a zooshed up version of the actual complex. Driftsands.. you proved me wrong!. We really so enjoyed our stay and now back in Gauteng dealing with a nagging teenager who wishes to relocate to your sirene surroundings. Who knows.. but will surely be back very soon..regardless.

Décor a bit outdated, but very comfortable. Cleaner was not very thorough. There was still bread crumps on the table after she left and the mob was dirty. Lee was very helpful with arranging a taxi and hired car to the airport. thanks very much.

My family stayed in R108 and found the apartment to be of a high standard.The service we received from staff was excellent . We suggest that braai faciities thant can be used on rainy days be provided. The atmosphere at the venue is peaceful and conducive to a restful holiday. My family will use Droiftsands again .
