Stayed a few nights in the self catering Chalet that borders the river. Really comfortable offering bathroom on suite for all 3 bedrooms. Great BBQ and outside area. Wildlife around. Stayed one night in the hotel which can do with a refurb, using very old bedding and electronic equipment like TV is outdated. Restaurant is outsourced which is a problem,... More

Located on the banks of the Sabi and the Sand river the resort is a great family getaway. You must drive your own car in hazyview as there is no local transport. Great staff and great chalets. Restaurant was nice. Free Wifi in reception area. 20mins drive away from the Phabeni Gate of the Krueger National Park. Do your own... More

The reception staff are very friendly and welcoming. There is a bar in the premises so you can enjoy a drink while relaxing by the enormous sparkling blue pool. Thee rooms are nice and big... The linen is crispy clean and the beds are nice and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back in the future.

Our experience at sanbonani was absolutely ghastly. The staff were sour and unfriendly. The welcoming "committee" were exceptionally unfriendly. Our room stank of stale smoke. The cleaning lady in our room treated us like children and demanded that we shower before 10am on holiday. I will never return to sanbonani. What a crappy weekend we had

My friends and I stayed at Sanbonani Resort in April. We were given a chalet down by the river and couldn't be happier with the location. Not more than 150 feet from our back door are a family of hippos in the river that runs by the resort. They actually came up to graze on grass just a couple feet... More

The resort is clean and well maintained. The units have everything needed for a relaxing holiday being well furnished, comfortable and well equipped. Sanbonani is well situated being only 15 minutes drive from the Kruger Park Phabeni gate and 10 minutes from excellent shopping in Hazyview. Sabie, Graskop and Pilgrims Rest are also easily reached by means of beautiful scenic... More

Close to Phabeni Gate, quiet and relaxed, service is slow but goes with the service you get in the area. The Food at the restaurant is not that good, but you can find a few good restaurants in the area. Hotel room is standard nothing spectacular. Lovely pool area, lots of space for the kids to go wild. All round...... More

Had a fantastic weekend at the resort - units are a little tired and really could do with some maintenance - rising damp on the walls in quite a few areas of the units - broken tiles in the units and on the patios. Tin openers didn't work - vegetable peelers didn't work - and some other kitchen issues that... More
