Stayed here this past weekend, joining friends and family who were booked at the vacation club (timeshare resort just behind the wave pool area). The hotel, though a bit dated, was still quite a nice experience. Wonderful views over the golf course. Lots of activities for the kids the weather wasn't that great for the pools... Putt putt, motor boat... More

Fantastic service, fabulous food, crazy cocktails & a view like no other... Yeah, you do have to wait in a queue for breakfast on weekends & during school holidays, but you can have a chat with some champagne or orange juice while you're waiting... it's all part of the experience, so take a chill pill & enjoy :) Else visit...

My husband and I recently joined a group of friends at the Cascades. We had a great weekend, The hotel is in an immaculate condition, and the renovations on the first floor, including changes to the terrace and bar was a really good idea. The terrace bar is a great place to meet for pre-dinner drinks. Rooms were clean and... More

We stayed at the Cascades hotel from 10 to 17 August and enjoyed great hospitality and weather. The acting manager Sammie Maimela was very helpful and all his staff took great care of us. There has been a few changes since our last visit. The Peninsula restaurant on the 1st floor now sport a sundeck which will be great in... More

We stayed here for two nights to recover from our flights before starting on a tour of South Africa. What a great place to stay! Others have commented on how great the staff and rooms are so all I can add is that, "I agree". So a few points that may help you: - All views from the rooms are... More

Despite the hotel undergoing Refurbishment during our stay, nontheless it was still an unforgettable experience being hosted by the Stunning Cascades Hotel. It was my first trip to Sun City and I was blown away. The hotel and Sun City itself surpassed my expectations.

We stayed at Cascades in April 2013. Sun City as a whole is pure decadence and there is just no end to how much you can spend. Its a world within itself and three nights zip by like lightning. The casino runs 24X7 and has a great collection of slot machines. We really enjoyed the Valley of the Waves as... More
