Ben Siesta Guest Reviews

Perfect welcome, perfect location and everything else was just perfect.We saw the whales jumping from the balcony!!! The apartment is extremely central just a 5 minute walk to the beach and at most 15 minutes to the centre of Umhlanga. Absolutely loved this apartment and all 6 of us would go back here. Thanks so much!!!

We were a family of 6 staying in this apartment. It was beautifully clean, sparkling ensuite bathroom with added family shower. Great views from the balcony. Pool was lovely to splash around in on an evening. Only a few minutes from the beach and around a 10 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants. Felt very safe with the security features in place. We had great communication with the owners Jonathan and Hermann. Quick phone call and they were there to meet us on the day. No hassle whatsoever, deposit refunded without a quibble. Would definitely recommend this.

We were a group of six colleagues and stayed here for three nights. The three bedroom apartment was very clean and has a full equiped kitchen. The main bedroom is en suite. The other two bedrooms share a shower. Wifi is free. The owners were welcoming and security was secure. The Bronze beach is across the road.Gateway Mall is not far. We used Uber and took less than five minutes to get one . We paid between R32 and R36 to Gateway. I would recommend you check it for yourself.

What you read about Ben Siesta on Trip advisor is accurate and true. This is a very well designed apartment with plenty of space and all the amenities and facilities a family requires for a beach holiday. Close to everything and as guests you are very well looked after. We highly recommend it and would happily stay there again.

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.

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.
