Sandy Ridge suits me when on a business trip. It's affordable and service delivery is on point at every step of the way. Clean, Well Kept, All the Amenities you could hope for and competent staff. I always stay in Flat 7 - suitable for a family of 3 (1 x Double Bed and 1 x Single Bed)

Camera gigante pulita e confortevole.
Colazione abbastanza buona
La spiaggia più vicina è bellissima ma a circa 15/20 minuti a piedi, purtroppo non è molto servita dai trasporti la zona ma i taxi costano relativamente poco.
È situato in una zona tranquilla e residenziale molto sicura

I recently stayed 2 nights here. Existing reviews were mixed. I found the owner Sandy to be very welcoming and helpful. The room was exactly as advertised, comfortable, with a slight sea view and excellent sleep comfort.

One is given keys, so can easily come and go. The establishment is close to both Umhlanga Rocks and La Lucia which is very convenient.

Breakfast is served at the time of your choice (between certain times obviously) and is freshly cooked according to your order.

All in all an affordable place that offers what it advertises.

we booked 3 rooms, all with balcony via booking.com for 3 nights
when we arrived we were assigned to 3 rooms but only 2 with balcony. had to insist and show bookings to get the 3 rooms we booked
the lady at the reception asked us what we want for breakfast but the order didn't match what was delivered. everything was very confused.
when leaving we forgot a large box (closed and sealed) of chocolate in the fridge of one of the rooms. we called 2 hours after departure, telling to keep it and that we will pick it up later when we are back in Umshlanga, which was agreed. when we returned we were told they didn't find anything (!) that made us very angry.
the room are ok, but the windows have only very thin curtains which makes impossible to keep some darkness in the romm in the morning. the bathrooms amenities are almost inexistant.
the staff was mostly nice though and the 2 buildings look pretty

most BB's have now free wifi which is not the case at Sandy Ridge's

to make it short, it was not terrible but wouldn't go back.

I have the misfortune of being away from my family quite a bit, but staying at Sandy Ridge was just like being at home. The host and her staff are out of this world and really do make you feel like you're welcome. The rooms are clean and neat and well equipped. This is my destination of choice in Umhlanga/Durban without a doubt.

I've stayed at Sandy Ridge four times now - in 3 different rooms. It's quiet, comfortable, within walking distance to downtown Umhlanga & the beach! The staff is friendly & helpful, the rooms are clean, there is a fridge, coffee & tea in the room. And it's not everywhere that you can fall asleep after forgetting to close the balcony door and wake up to find a monkey sneaking into your room to pinch the sugar!
It's not the Ritz (or the Oyster Box) but it's not priced like the Ritz either...
Sandy Ridge is a warm, friendly place where the staff remembers you & welcomes you back - that's worth more to me than posh carpets & over-priced room-service.

Die Zimmer sind alt und kitschig (Blau scheint die absolute Lieblingsfarbe zu sein, da wird auch nicht vor blauen Dekoplüschkissen halt gemacht). Das Frühstück war sehr mangelhaft. Man wird unfreundlich empfangen und mehr als ein Dutzend aufgehängte Verbots- und Hinweisschilder passen zur dieser Grundhaltung dort.
