Excellent Service”

Our stay was excellent. Our rooms were spotless. The facilities were great. I did not use the gym, but peeked my head inside to see. The location was convenient, especially since we planned activities in the north of Durban. All staff from housekeeping, to reception, to Porters all had a smile on their face and were really pleasant to interact with.

Great Hotel”

We had a very comfortable stay in a very clean family room. We have 2 older sons and we managed well because the room was large, with comfy King size beds, kitchenette as well as a table and 4 chairs. The staff were friendly and very helpful at all times. We were also very central to restaurants, coffee shops and a short walk to the beach. I would definitely recommend the Marriot, Umhlanga to anyone.

Exceptional”

The room we stayed in had dining facilities. I loved the good quality sheets and towels together with high standards of cleaning. I enjoyed the gym when it rained. I would stay here again. It would be nice if the hotel offered a package with breakfast for a long stay at a discounted rated.
