Thank you for taking the time to review Ben Siesta and appreciate your willingness to recommend Ben Siesta to your friends and visitors.
This apartment offered our group of five adults good facilities to rest and relax in a convenient location. We all had enough privacy, furthermore there we could lean back cosily in the living room. Sea view from the balcony with morning sun made our breakfast and the restaurants were on walking distance. Beach is only few steps away. This is a great place to have a relaxing holiday, I´d definetely recommend this.
Thank you for your lovely review of Ben Siesta, and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. We sincerely hope that you will return and stay in one of our establishments again in the near future.

We chose this gorgeous well equipped apartment after viewing photos and reviews on both Tripadvisor and Booking.com and it lived up to our high expectations from the start with it's easy to find central location followed by a very professional welcome from Tina from the Managing Agents all the way through to us having to check out and move on to our next stop in Kwazulu Natal.We loved the modern clean contemporary style of our Ben Siesta apartment with the white shuttered windows leading onto the spacious terrace where we enjoyed a braai each night and started each day with a dip in the shared pool in lovely landscaped gardens.The location just 10 minutes walk into town or 5 minutes to the beach meant we hardly needed our rental car which was left in secure parking on site.The scenic beach walk along the well maintained promenade towards Umhlanga town centre offered many opportunities for drinking and dining with ample shopping facilities in the centre.The cargo ships in abundance on the horizon at sea somewhat spoiled what would otherwise have been a fantastic sea view however this was undoubtedly due to the proximity of Durban city and it's busy port.We also saw much construction around Umhlanga which could potentially lead to over development of this lovely resort spoiled by high rise buildings in future but hopefully this will not be the case and I don't recall either of these observations from my last visit 15 years ago.
Thank you for your great review on Ben Siesta - which we were so pleased to read! Umhlanga Rocks has definitely changed in the last 15 years and is a wonderful tourist destination and the amenities offered in the Umhlanga area are of top quality. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and hopefully you will return (within 15 years) to stay at one of our other establishments.

We stayed at Ben Siesta 105 recently for 5 days with extended family including young children. I am so pleased that we found this great apartment. From the minute we booked it the owners were so helpful, aiming to fulfil any request we made. The location is great; easily reached by car from the airport ( the owners even offered to collect us ), directly across the road to a beautiful beach and the promenade. Also easily accessible for town with its lovely bars and restaurants which are more geared up to adults rather than families, however, we did find that the big hotels across the road were great for eating out, offering the likes of Spur which always have play areas for the tots. The apartment could not be faulted for its facilities. We would definitely return one day, may even try one of the owners other attractive rentals.
It was a pleasure to have you to stay and we are delighted that you enjoyed the facilities and the location of Ben Siesta.
We have recently upgraded the apartment and we look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.

Wow, where do I even begin! We stayed at Ben Siesta for 4 beautiful and very comfortable days 16/05/14 to 19/05/14. I can not thank them enough for the brilliant service they provide. It was just what my family needed, peaceful, modern, secure and close enough to everything we could've needed. I feel like I've stumbled on a piece of heaven. Well done guys, your properties are gorgeous and at a steal of a price, what more can I ask for! You will definitely be seeing me again
Thanks so much for your wonderful and complimentary review. We are so pleased that Ben Siesta lived up to your expectations. Your continued support and loyalty is much appreciated.
