Booked online. Was told at check in that card payment online was just precautionary in case we didn't show. Paid and then realised a few days later that my card had also been charged for the online transaction. Emails have conveniently been ignored since... Even aside from that it's not a great hotel.

What a blissful place to be, the weather is brilliant, the atmosphere is to die for and the overall experience is just worth it. A two hour drive from Johannesburg and oh so worth it. Staff are friendly and helpful, the food is great, the rooms are lovely and just something worth while so thank you!

Having read previous reviews we had in mind what to expect. We did however have a good time. Our room was fine we had a ground floor lake facing room and the view was amazing. The reason we requested a ground floor room was to have access to the sun loungers outside our room, unfortunately these where dirty and not...

It took over one hour to check in. Extremely inefficient. Rooms are small and dark. Pool restaurant is beyond slow and food not impressive. Pool dirty and no showers. Cannot recommend. Would never go again.

Stayed for business conference, not too much time to enjoy all the facilities. The room was very comfortable although the bathrooms were not the most modern ones. The buffet was also nice. Interesting swimming pool, a nice lawn for making a nice soccer game. It was quite positive.

Although the rooms have all been revamped it unfortunately does not bring a feel of classiness with it. The rooms are clean and linen is fresh, but unfortuntely the antique air conditioners do not work, making hot humid evenings quite uncomfortable. The breakfast buffets are crowded and although there is quite a variety to chose from, the food is average....

Spent two nights here at the end of January, room was very comfortable. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. We didnt use the Cabanas pool as we preferred the Royal Baths pool above the Valley of the Waves which had some of the most comfortable sun beds we have ever used. Very easy to get around Sun City on...

We spent our Anniversary weekend at the Sun Cabanas, Sun City. It happened to be a very busy weekend, with a triathlon as well as the EFC tournament taking place. I chose to book the Sun Cabanas for our stay as it has just undergone a refurbishment and the rooms looked great on the hotel website. When we arrived at...

Got a good deal for a one night stay which included drinks and food vouchers and breakfast included. The accommodation is good for a couple looking for a midweek break and change of scenery. The weather was good so we could make good use of the facilities at Sun City. My one gripe is that there was a private function...
