My 4yr old son loved it here. Warm friendly staff, room was crisp and clean. We had breakfast at wimpy back and forth into the sparkling pool. Loved it :-) Will definitely return when weather is favourable.

I am retired in Malta and see many places. Cabana beach/Umhlanga is one of the top destinations in the world with everything you need for a good quality holiday. Best beaches, pools, walks and nature. Love the world class shopping experience.

The place was perfect. The room was spacious and very clean. Great location to the beach and into town for shopping and great restaurants. There were 8 of us travelling together in 4 rooms; one of which was around the pool and another being a large room, large enough to seat us all for breakfast.

Facilities and services are excellent and it is close to the sea front and shopping centres, Good place to stay for a holiday, but security risk with respect to uncontrolled entrances from non residents are high.
