Was a fantatsic place to stay. Had good service. Rooms where a little stuffy even with the sliding door open. Fan needs to work better. But lovely people and so accommodating. Will stay there again. :-)

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. The most humid and hot time of the year down here, is February and March. Pity you did not mention the issue with the fan as we could have sorted something out for you.

Would be great if the bathroom mirror was much lower. I had to stand on a chair to see into it. I'm average hight as will. Husband could not use either for shaving. It would work for a 6.9meter tall person.

Great family place to stay. Flats have everything you need. Booking was easy and the staff very help full. Great sea views from all the balconies. Braai area was nice and clean and the kids really enjoyed the pool. Security is very good and noticed a security guard on the premises. Very easy access to the beach and the local...

It was an excellent stay overall. My second time staying at Driftsands, but definitely not my last. Great service, great location, and an overall amazing experience, and most important is the affordability ( Value for money ) See you on my next holiday again.

Safe, secluded, with stunning views of the ocean and steps from the most beautiful beach in the world. Management went out of their way to make us comfortable, Accommodations were basic but comfortable with upgraded linens and kitchen equipment , and as overseas guests we were able to rent towels at a nominal price. We also enjoyed the pool in...

We received a warm welcome from Dave and Lee on arrival. We had an excellent time. Actually saw the strength of the sea and the force of water. Gives us a new perspective of certain things we take for granted. .Travelled to Orbi Gorge and walked on Suspension bridge Ate at waffle house. Awesome time. Thanks guys for making this...

The location is excellent and central, very close to the beach. Our cottage was too small for 4 people, but is ideal for a couple, though it was well equipped with everything we needed. My family had a perfect holiday

Couldn't ask for a better setting to enjoy our seaside holiday. The view from the balcony is spectacular. Rooms were comfortable with good mattresses. Gardens were in mint condition. Braai areas and swimming pool cleaned every day. Some of the interior needs an upgrade. Otherwise, needed nothing more to make this a superb home away from home.
