          Terrible experience ”

          THIS PLACE IS A NIGHTMARE…. This is not the first time I am staying here bt this will be my last. The staff has attitude and very very unfriendly. The apartment had a bad smell and the kitchen was full of roaches dead and alive ones…. The hotel manager was told and he brings the lady to our room to see and says she is going to fumigate and nothing happened…. My husband and I refused to eat in the apartment or even put our stuff in the kitchen. We stayed here for 3 nights on our last night more started coming out now from the bathroom when we go to reception to complain only to realise the hotel is run by the security guard at night no staff on duty. We was forced to pack up and leave as we have a small baby and this was getting worst… so basically we left and had to go durban and pay to stay at another hotel yet Margate sands was paid in full for our stay. Then we requested for a gas braai and this comes after one and half hours after going and begging and asking them where it was. The only staff member I can say was helpful and friendly was Welcome the entertainment guy…. This hotel really needs to close to sort the roaches problem and need proper staff and better cleaner Apartments. The apartments are not well maintained at all the Curtains have dirty marks the furniture is sticky and the apartment has a sour smell like no cleaning aids are used….

          Athletes foot!”

          we booked 2 c chalets, from the beginning there were issues 1. Margate sands could not find our booking which was weird as we never have problems when booking with agoda, it seems the hire was at fault and last minute gave us rooms 2. When we arrived the rooms were depressing, not clean, light bulbs were not working and were never changed by the hotel after me complaining, bathrooms were appalling, my son of 3 years old got athletes foot from the bath tub. Sink had hair in it. 3. Towels were not supplied after me asking for them, only the second day the supplies the towels 4. No one told us that the entertainment area was closed, so there was no tables tennis, pool table or children’s playroom anymore

          The place was clean, staff was friendly and lots of amenities on the property and surrounding area. Rooms were a bit dark and furniture is old but overall the views and outdoor life made up for it.

          The lower apartments are uncomfortable due to intense uncontolled noises right through the night.”

          Resort is perfectly located with good amenities in and around. Only if they can enforce discreetness amongst patrons as the noises can be untennable at night.
