Recommended stay in Umhlanga Rocks
This hotel looks world class after it’s revamp two or so years ago. Modern stylish finishings and lighting create a great impression. We stayed in room 601 and had a beautiful sea view. The room was very clean and well-maintained. The only snag was that on the first night the air conditioning stopped working and when we phoned reception around 1 am, they said it was because someone on our floor switched their air conditioner off at the DB board main switch in the room, causing everyone else on the floor to not have air conditioning. The staff rectified this the next evening and it didn’t happen again. The hotel pool is on the small side. The hotel is walking distance from the beach. The buffet breakfast was reasonably priced and good quality fresh cold and hot food. We were exceptionally impressed with the hotel allowing a late checkout up to 1pm without any additional charge. Staff were friendly without exception and the bar served delicious cocktails. Overall the hotel offers very good value for money.
