My stay at the Sun City Hotel was a very pleasant experience and would highly recommend this resort to any world traveler. The buffet breakfast was outstanding and the wait staff were very attentive and made sure your coffee cup was always full. My room was clean and inviting and the bathroom had a very Zen like atmosphere about it.... More

This is the "middle of the road" hotel at Sun City. Following a hiccup with our booking we were upgraded from the cabanas. The staff were fantastic throughout. Where/how do they find these fantastic staff members?? So apologetic for their mistakes, so helpful and always smiling! This is the perfect hotel if you're going with children. Swimming pool is great,... More

Feb 2015. I see that Sun City responded to a previous review regarding this venue which used to be the Orchid. Full marks for taking the time to reply. Sadly the meal we had there last night was very poor. The starters were ok.ish perhaps because all they had to do was deep fry them. The main courses were unrecognisable... More

Currently staying at Sun City. Very disappointed so far... There were tons of mouse droppings under the bed when we checked in; had to wait for almost two hours for housekeeping to come vacuum it up. Then woke up at 3am to a mouse running around the room plus new mouse poop on carpet. Had to pack up and change... More

Have stayed at this hotel and all of the others at the resort on several occasions, but the Sun City Main Hotel is our favourite for it location and quality of the rooms. Having said that, the rooms are due for an update. It was appreciated that the towels and the linen are of good quality and very well look... More

We went there for a day expecting an amazing experience and we found that it was a hotel complex with a water park full of children machine games and fake architecture for that I guess we consider to go to Las Vegas not south africa and it might be better. Its a long trip from j'oburg to go for that,... More

For a quick getaway with kids , and providing you don't mind paying more than usual, go to Sun City. Built in the booming 80's its a bit of blast from the past. Highlight is the valley of the waves where you can relax. Weekends can get very full though.Three days should do it before you'll be looking for something... More

We recently stayed 5 nights at the Sun City Hotel. The rooms were nice (great shower!) and the service was fine. Our room had a good view over the golf course. The location was good with everything within very easy walking distance. The downside for me was that it wasn't the best choice for kids and the pool is only... More
