“Wonderful week”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The view, the accommodation, the leisure at the adult pool facing the mighty ocean was therapy to both Llew and I. The staff are absolutely delightful; they recognise us as annual visitors and really make us feel at home! In fact, the Sands IS home from home! Thanks for making our stay memorable. Sincerely, Llewellyn and Jennifer Lewis

What a pleasurable stay at the Sands. Everything was superb. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Kids did not use the resorts facilities much, as they spent every moment at the beach.

Reception staff really assisted me with scanning some important work documents. No issues at all.

We had left a bag in the room after we checked out and called the hotel the next day. The bag was found and kept at the security office and everything was intact.

What a great trip. I look forward to going there again.

When booked was advised that we had a corner unit 820. On arrival was given 817 and told that rooms are not a guarentee. We have a small baby and the room we had had an interleading door to neighbours that complained about the noise the baby made. Reception called us a further 3 times during our stay- whilst I appreciate the concern- the tone implied that we potentially were neglecting or abusing our child. We specifically asked for a room that would be of the least amount of disturbance to other guests but hotels failure to honour room confirmation meant we had to apologies to guests. This is supposed to be a family resort and we felt that it did not live up to its promise- we will not be returning and will ensure that we tell everyone of the poor manner in which the hotel managed the situation.

We have stayed at this resort every year just about over the last 10 years. We have once again experienced the perfect family beach holiday. In house food was great and Umhlanga Village with excellent cafes, take outs, restaurants and grocers within an easy walk. The staff are friendly and helpful and the amenities sparkle. Housekeeping is personal and take pride in ensuring a comfortable stay. All this soothed by the sound of crashing waves. Looking forward to our next visit

Many activities to keep your kids busy, restaurants in the hotel, which provide high standard food, good service and professional staff. Rooms are great, beds are comfortable, you can hear the waves from your rooms, which gives you a nice quality sleep. All the roooms have air cons

Room Tip: Try higher floor rooms as you can get lots of noise from the pool and also you get a better view
