This is a great place. Its in fantastic surroundings, the architecture is superbly zany, in a nice way. Its clean, the service is good, there's lots to do. Yes, don't miss the champagne breakfast. Other meals are good too. I do not understand why there are any negative reviews on this hotel. Definitely going back again

Stayed at The Palace for 6 nights in April with my husband and our 2 children 11 and 4. We booked through Go to Africa, a link via the Palace website, and I have to say Kiah Preyer who dealt with us, was amazing, she sorted accommodation and transfers, and all our game drives and trips, all we had to...

Whilst I have to say our visit in Sun City was amazing. Our experience was tainted by an incident on the day of departure. Items were removed from one of our suitcases whilst awaiting collection from the room on day of departure. I found dealing with security challenging as we did not realize until after leaving Sun City. Security simply... More

Truly a sensational resort to spend at least a week to full appreciate. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly. The room was large and very comfortable. The bathroom was huge and well fitted. The breakfast was without doubt fit for a king. The architecture and detail is stunning. No expense was spared in creating this " LOST CITY ".... More

The most disgusting swimming pool I have ever seen. The bathroom is almost 200 square feet but the pot is so small that after getting in you have to stand in the pot to close the door. The overall design is so bad that there is no sunlight entering the hotel. To top it all off you can't get one... More

Stayed for a weekend at the Palace of the lost city, must say was disappointed with the hotel room, it is very average for the price and does not look or feel like a palace room. The Hotel foyer , pool etc.. is great and some of the chandeliers etc are outstanding but the hotel room which was a superior... More

When I decided to book our time away, I was unsure if a holiday in South Africa was what we wanted. We do I to take our longer holidays away from South Africa, so I took the risk and well it did pay off. Sun International have an amazing resort here, with something for everyone. We did so much in... More

We had to request that two rooms be changed on three occasions, as the smell of damp was unbearable. Our door lock did not function and we were locked out for three hours after dinner, before they broke the door to let us in. We will certainly not be returning there !
