Pros: Canelands is situated on a beachfront location north of the main Balito section right next to Salt Rock and pools. The oceanfront rooms placed right over the Indian Ocean made a splendid sight and sound. The terrace outdoor dining was perfect for breakfast and evening meals alike. Daniel and his staff provided exceptional attentive service and always had a smile and greeting. Food selection was varied with locally sourced produce including Durban curries and prawn dishes.
Cons: DishTV was a disaster but proved no news especially coronavirus was welcome. There were many excursions in the area but not widely publicized at the hotel. The deckchairs and towels are in need of significant upgrade given the infinity pool and beachside setting.

Stunning sea view but room was badly laid out so very cramped and with a totally unnecessary amount of storage. and balcony spoilt by 2 air conditioning units in a cupboard that if you closed the door made a huge noise and an overflow pipe that ran around the edge of the balcony. With the removal of A c unit and some styling to match ground floor it could be a much more welcoming space .

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly, welcoming owner. Comfortable room and bed. Lovely sea view and cats too!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was fresh and a great choice, catered by Gavin(the owner) who was so accommodating to our needs. The unit is well equipped and we enjoyed the use of the T.V. and the DVD player. The staff did a great job of cleaning and refreshing the unit. The pool area is well looked after and the loungers were a treat. The views from our room and the property were beautiful and a pleasure to enjoy. Gavin certainly made us feel welcome and was always there to assist in any way. The position of the guest house is most convenient and is close to beaches, shopping centers and restaurants.
Cons: The position of the bed in the room made it difficult to have easy access to the bedroom. Although there was a fan, it was rather hot and aircon would have been appreciated. The steep step up to the unit was rather difficult to access. It was quite a difficult road to negotiate to the beach because of the potholes in the streets, especially in the evenings.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: We booked this as an overnight stay because we had a 7:30 am departure from Durban airport. Less than 15 minute drive from the airport and a good location for grocery shops and a few restaurants. Literally over the road from the beach. Only met Jeff (Geoff) briefly but he was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Room 5 was compact but it had everything we needed for a 1 night stay. If staying longer we would need a larger room. Parking is limited and we had to make sure that we weren't blocked in the night before our 5:30 am departure, however the room number card for the windscreen display is a very good idea.
10.0 Excellent
