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.
