This is one of the best places I've stayed at in the world from an all-round value perspective
Fantastic location directly across from the beach and within a short walk to a small shopping center with two great restaurants - seafood and Italian - and a grocery. A short drive from the huge Gateway mall and the popular Umdloti Beach (which easier to swim at than the one across from On The Beach). Comfortable room but thin doors so a bit noisy when others are in the hall or at reception desk. Best to have a car - rentals are cheap.
