I don't want to waste my time writing a review as I feel my time was wasted by the hotel staff and service(but will do this in the hopes that management will learn from this) Check what a 4 Star hotel should be doing then do a little survey and see what you lack and fail to provide. 1. We... More

We stayed in the Sabi River Sun Report's self catering chalets for a midweek, and it was really pleasant,. The chalets are spacious enough, each with their own veranda, overlooking the hippo dam. The chalet was cleaned everyday, and was wonderfully cool when we came back in the afternoons. The resort has a nice walking trail - along the Sabi... More

The hotel is centrally based, and provides all you expect from a sun international brand; soft fluffy towels, and comfortable pillows and mattresses. The hotel rooms decor is rooted in the 80's, and is in desperate need of a revamp. The bathrooms seem to have had a semi revamp, and the basin is now granite, but they forgot essentials, like...

The hotel is a bit dated. Staff were exceptionally friendly & met our every expectation & more. Close proximity to Kruger Park gate. Beautiful grounds with enough wildlife on the property to keep everyone entertained or play a round of golf.

The location and grounds of this hotel are super. The hotel needs a bit of t l c, but I understand improvements are planned, with new air conditioning units replacing noisy ones in the bedrooms. Food is very good - hope the hippos and crocs come back soon.

This resort is set on a golf course and has its own Hippo and croc pool. While we were there we counted seven hippos all very active in the pool. There is a hide from which you can watch them. The chalets can sleep six and are comfortable. Many have been refurbished. There is a large veranda with built in... More

Fabulous resort for the whole family! Dad can play golf while Mom relaxes at the pool with the kids. Kids activities at twice daily. Walk & enjoy the birdlife with hippos & crocs along the Sabi River.

The impeccably maintained grounds and scenery were simply breathtaking. Pool was excellent for distracting my rowdy kids as there was a shallow wading pool that I could let them swim in relatively unsupervised. Rooms were not modern, but were clean and comfortable. I find that service in the general Kruger area isn't top notch but frankly icannot complain. Overall excellent!

The hotel room was not properly cleaned. The air-conditioner was noisy. the carpet throughout the hotel was tacky. The food (dinner) was horrible. And there were noisy visitors on Saturday night. The only good thing about my stay was that it was within close proximity to the Kruger National Park and the reception staff was friendly... Otherwise, what a let... More
