Great staff. Always friendly and smiling. Magnificent beach views.
Will highly recommend to family and friends. Close to everything
The walkway on the beach side was fantastic. Lots of pubs and great eating places nearby. Close to airport and easy access to freeway.

This makes for a convenient place for a family holiday - with the beach walking distance from your room, restaurants on the sea front as well as an approximate 2km walk/run pathway for some exercise. Good entertainment programme for children during South African school holidays. Every day housekeeping ensures a good rest from every-day chores. Quite close to King Shaka airport. Staff provide good service and checks in to ensure guests are happy. Towels provided for beach and swimming pool. Pool-side prices a bit high against South African standards. A truly South African Natal holiday.

Cabana Beach remains a firm favourite for us. The location is simply superb being right on the beach and very close to the main swimming beach and grannys pool. We also loved the adult only pool - a real bonus for those wanting to chill out and enjoy peace and quiet.
The newly decorated rooms are simply fabulous and the units are well equipped with everything needed for self catering.

Room Tip: We liked the Cabanas, which are small but so well located overlooking the adult pool and the sea.

We had the most awful week here - the worst was a gross breach of security when another couple were given the key card to our room! Accompanying us to reception, this couple said "good thing we are honest otherwise we could have cleaned out your apartment". Valid point.
So much went wrong. One thing after another, we had no telephone in the room - not working.
Key cards frequently failed to work, security staff forever playing with their mobile phones.
Definitely not recommended and certainly never, ever again! Feel free to contact us for more information or the rest of this sad, sorry story.

Room Tip: Beware, our room had a flood on the bathroom flood and water running down the walls!

Was really impressed with the service at this resort. From the front desk all the way to security. The resort staff were always eager and willing to help with anything. Impressed with the room quality as well - well appointed for this price category.

A truly wonderful experience each year. The staff are wonderful, going out of their way to make one's stay memorable and stress free. A shuttle to Gateway at least 2x a week would be appreciated as many fly down and don't have access to transport.
