    i experienced the friendliness of uber drivers, togetherness of tourists from different provinces, quietness in the middle of the night, most of the hotels are a walk away from the beaches, entertainment centers like pubs, an eyewink away from the hotels

    I have stayed in Durban and have used booking.com many times before. But this time I was scammed by Flats in Umhlanga place. They have not paid my money back. Durban is a great place. My issue is only with this party accommodation that is killing the tourism industry by scamming people.

    I liked Umhlanga, walking on the Pier was my favorite, the restaurants were all fine and the lighthouse is a beautiful sight. Shopping at the Gateway mall was pure pleasure. What I don't like was the water problems experienced in some areas but I believe it's due to poor maintenance of infrastructure.

    The place is not the same as before, everything is deteriorating and the buildings are dirty, and others are shattered. Really it is time for the Government and the municipality to enforce the rules and even come up with rules to regulate the usage and keeping the standard of buildings, businesses and ensures that everything is well maintained. Almost everything or building around town needs to be revamped. The view and the appearance is not nice, it is a disgrace as well as disgusting.

    We drove through what remains of the city centre twice. It is so sad to see the decay. Avoid it at all costs. Umhlanga was a revelation. It is beautiful and the promenade next to the beach is a tourist attraction in itself. The locals are very friendly towards tourists and we never felt threatened.

    Please improve on the cleanliness of the city streets and places with high volumes of people. Building should be renovated to uplift the aesthetic value of the city. Taxis are ignoring road signs and regulations.

    I stayed in a family room, and it was spacious. My room had a window from where I could see the beach. The bed was comfortable. The room had a fridge, kettle and it was supplied with coffee, tea, sugar, milk. No water was provided in the room. The bathroom was a comfortable space, and it was supplied with shower gel, soap, shampoo, and towels. The room also has a flat screen TV with some DSTV channels. The WIFI was free and had a good speed. The hotel location is 5 mins away from the beach and beachfront.

    Breakfast was exceptional, I can't remember the lady's name, but she came knocking at our door asking if they could bring it into the room since they were about to close, which was unexpected 👌🏾👌🏾 location... Next to South Beach, just opposite Ushaka and MSC embarking point which made it easier for us to get to the place since we were from the cruise... Staff was amazing, including the security guards
