We were privileged to stay at the Palace of the Lost City during the recent Nedbank Golf Challenge. What a wonderful experience. From the minute we arrived, the staff could not do enough to make us feel welcome and be helpful. Our room was magnificent, clean and spaceous, with a great view over the pool area. We recent stayed at... More

Staying at The Palace is a shock to the sensors. Its sheer size and architecture will leave you speechless. From the 16 bronze statues, to the magnificent archways and lets not forget the gigantic Kings pool. Its hard to believe that this small mining town, with the vision of Sol Kerzner, has transformed into the go to place for many... More

It is not the first time I stay in the Palace and will not be the last for sure. This is the kind of places; you always want to return to whether you are in a couple or with kids. It is a getaway from all the noise and one is treated in a special way. The hotel is very... More

This is the second time we were visiting Sun City and staying at the Palace, this time with our kids who after watching "Blended" wanted to come to this hotel so much. Our room was upgraded which was great and totally unexpected. I have to say the breakfast there was probably the best from all 5star hotels in all countries... More

The Grill Room claims to be a classic New York steakhouse with the best steaks in Sun City. Well it clearly is no Gotham or Keans nor a Mortans - rather what you'll find is a below average steakhouse with extremely slow service and no AC. The large table across from us left after 15 minutes of us sitting down... More

We've stayed here 10 years ago, and very little has changed. This is both good and bad. The décor is starting to look aged, but everything is very well maintained. The sheer magnitude and grandiosity of the palace always stuns. We travelled as a family with little kids. The valley of the waves - always a hit. Pity the rides... More

From the ride down the approach to the time we departed The Palace was exceptional. The welcome from Justice and his more than polite attention and help was faultless. The receptionists handling of our less than adequate paperwork made a potentially difficult situation a breeze. We were far too early for check-in as happens with international travel so our luggage... More

We were at this Hotel for four days recently, and while the Hotel rooms such as the restaurant are definite visions of a former glory, there is a tiredness that colours the place. The magnificent chandelier, apparently once gleaming and sparkling, is a shroud of grey and while you can see how magnificent it must have looked twenty or so... More

The hotel is decorated to perfection, the staff is friendly, the food is good and the pools are the best. Prepare yourself to be spoiled! The prices (food, bevarages and atractions) were surprinsely reasonable. In October it was almost empty, which I like!
