No cocktails even though was advised there was a bar. No indoor pool, poor parking- leaving keys at reception is a no no for me, the chef used too much of cinnamon sticks in my prawn curry it was yuck. Its not a place whereby I will book again. Staff were awesome thou!

Aliwal Shoal is about 1 hour south - excellent scuba diving with ragged tooth, white tips and occasional tiger sharks - safe - done it may times!

We weren't actually staying in Durban but La Lucia near Umhlanga Rocks which was fantastic. Maybe the wild monkeys who visit various parts.

You can book this hotel and go with your kids, there is everything your children can need

Clean Water, Good Weather & Friendly People make the Beach an enjoyable destination.
