We generally get a time share here once a year and I have been visiting since a kid. With the recent revamp the hotel is so much more efficient and cleaner. Staff are friendly and accommodating. The new play area is fun for kids however i still miss the old joy land.

All the amenities were clean and tidy as if brand new. At one stages something needed attention and it was done within 10 minutes. Great ! We expected a much smaller room, but it was actually spacious with enough cupboards for a big family. The view of the beach from the 14th floor was awesome !

Umhlanga Sands has everything a holiday maker could possibly want with very pleasant rooms in excellent order, restaurants, facilities for children, entertainment for adults and children and an incredible view of the ocean. The beach towels supplied by the hotel and the separate adult pool are especially a pleasure.
