This is the Palace, best most expensive hotel in South Africa - you cant go wrong here. Amazing breakfast, pools, food, valley of the waves, walking trails, service - everything is just very very expensive - direct access to the valley of the waves.

The staff here are fantastic with a great sense of humour! They can't do enough for you! I recommend having a meal in the palace as the pianist is playing in the background as the food is amazing! Also if your there close to sunset make an effort to go up to the long tower as the views from here... More

Lived like a king, what a fantastic experience. Service great but not imposing. Food fantastic and varied. Architecture stunning without the Dubai tackiness. The on hand cars to shuttle you around the golf courses/restaurants/activities made a big difference.

Wasn't sure what to expect. I had seen the hotel in a recent film called "Blended." It was so much more. They obviously copied the look and feel of the Royal Palace in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom." But they avoided using any of the copyrighted words in that title and film. The lobby is impressive, and opens... More

If you like your hotels understated then this is not the place for you. However if, like me, you want your holiday choices to be fun and memorable you could not ask for more than the gloriously flamboyant Palace of the Lost City. Waterfalls, minarets, animal sculptures, manicured gardens and the most impressive breakfast room I have ever encountered. We... More

I am a fan of sun city. There is so much to do for every age group and member of the family. This was my first stay in the palace and whilst the rooms are a tad dated the impressiveness of the rest of the hotel and surrounds makes up for it. What would take this hotel to the next... More

The palace is one of the best tourist attraction in South Africa. It gives tourist insights on African Wildlife while keeping tourist entertained with the plethora of attraction. One of my favorite feature of The Palace is the breakfast. There is myriads of option when it comes to breakfast, choosing what to eat could be a dillema
