    Great location, great rooms, great breakfast. I would absolutely stay here again when visiting Durban. It was so great, we extended our stay here after our original three nights! And, I don't think we've ever had a better free breakfast.

    Malinda, Gavin and their staff made us most welcome, they are phenomenal hosts and deserve every success. Sandals is a very relaxing and pleasant place to be. Lots of advice on restaurants and shopping. Wonderfully comfortable beds and amenities, outstanding breakfasts, snacks and drinks in the bar every evening. We loved every minute of our time with them.
