I visited for a business conference. The room was adequate but not great. Poor quality tea and coffee provision (only powdered creamer supplied, no containers of long life milk), bar fridge seems to be stocked with price list provided but locked so we could not use the provisions nor keep water cold. My roommate had arranged kosher food for the... More

Was impressed with the buzz on arrival. There was a choir and some flare jugglers in the driveway. Check in smooth. Room amazing - so impressed with how the rooms have been upgraded compared to what I remembered from last visit a few years ago. Food at the Sun Terrace beautifully displayed - all that I tried was delicious. Ditto... More

Much hyped resort in South Africa. Rooms are okay, but the staff is extremely unfriendly and non cooperative. The bell boys does not transport the luggage to the rooms properly and the central desk has no clues of there whereabouts. The floor plans are confusing, elevators don't function properly and the food is average. If you are in Sun City... More

Everybody was rude, not one staff... More

I was visiting south Africa with my family. We stayed at sun city hotel for the philantes national park. However the service in here was bad, first no greeting no smiles, and then for a hotel that claimed they are 4 star, the elevator doesn't work, you cant press up from lobby you have to go down first. 4 star...

Sun City, as a Gold MVG member you have made this process a bloody nightmare. Your pro-forma invoice is ambiguous at best and it has taken me 4 days to make this booking, upon receiving it, the booking was only quoted on one of your hotels. I ASKED FOR CASCADES AND LOST CITY, do you not want to make a... More

I want to bring to the notice of Trip Advisor a modus operandi amongst some Sun City Hotel staff members to charge the customer's cards months after they have checked out on an already paid stay!!! We stayed one night in Sun City Main hotel on 28th Feb, 2014 and our stay was pre-paid through our agent. The staff there... More

Stayed for a night for a boys break to unwind and a little gambling....all good except that there was a major renovation underway that we were not notified about and if I had been there for a romantic getaway then I would have been very annoyed. The casino was busy but had a good atmosphere throughout the evening my only... More
