My wife & I spent a weekend at Sun City recently & this was by far the best stay ever in our 10 year travel history to the resort. The Cascades Hotel knows exactly what hospitality is about. Having spent 6 hours on the road due to riots around the resorts vicinity, it took the warm bubbly hospitality of Pontsho... More

We had a wonderful time during our trip to Sun City. The room was beautiful and the staff was helpful and friendly. My son (4.5 years old) had the time of his life in the pool and visiting the attractions! We plan to come back on our next trip!

Our children loved the rock pool this is the only hotel with a heated pool. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The buffet breakfast was very good. The family rooms have two separate bedrooms and bathrooms with an interconnecting door in between the rooms. Well situated to the games area.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Cascades. We moved to a new room because the one was very small. The new room is at the 9th floor which was a junior suite. It had a big balcony and beautiful view of the gardens. The restaurant is excellent and the bar. The swimming pool area is also excellent. I loved... More

I've been coming to Sun City since 1983. I've seen it in its heyday. Some 50+ visits and can't help noticing it deterioration. Sad to see. The best days are long gone. The resort is tired and needs rejuvenation. Food is good still, always has been, staff are great, restaurants are good, breakfast buffets are unmatched. It has potential but... More

We have been to other hotels at Sun City before; overall I find them all nice. We stayed at the Cascades for 3 nights. On the positive side: • Hotel gardens are very nice for a short stroll. • The aviary behind tennis courts is small, but very nice. • The swimming pool is stunning. There is also a waterslide...

Overall, the rooms were satisfactory. We had a room with a balcony which was a bonus. The views are great. Breakfast was enjoyable. We had no issues with the service or the staff. The Cascades are much better than the Cabana's. And it was quite modern and comfortable.

The rooms are grubby , smell of mildew, rooms appear to need an upgrade Staff were noisy often sitting around chatting. Loved the Santorini restaurant thought. A lack of management was very evident. Not sure why the change in recent years but it always was a pleasant stay
