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

Lovely place especially for a family get away, loved the valley of the waves, slides, "beach", cocktails and casino! Lots to do, great activities for kids, very vibey! Would definitely go back... Different hotels for different types so have look for what ever suits you.

I stayed at Sun City Hotel in early Sept and was very disappointed to find it under major renovations. We were not advised prior to arriving and as we had booked quite awhile ago in Australiait was unacceptable. No apologies were given and we found access to areas very restrictive and staff were also unaware that Gary Player Country Club... More

It is always a great destination to getaway and relax, especially with so much to do for the kids, the only downer on our stay was upon booking there was no notice that the hotel was under renovation, had I known this , would have rather paid extra and stayed at the Cascades Hotel rather. Mobile data reception was not... More

We stayed for a conference in September at the Sun city hotel. Was very disappointed due to: - construction work currently under way; - unfriendly and unhelpful staff; - signage unclear at hotel resulting in ourselves and some of the other guests getting lost a couple of times trying to find our room; - we requested our laundry to be...

I was booked here for a congress. The hotel is undergoing renovation and although there was not much noise, the whole setup was inconvenient right from check-in to check-out. The lifts were also not working properly. There is NO free wifi which was very disappointing for the price you pay. Sun city is expensive to stay so this is why... More

Enormous hotel casino complex, with big gardens and super great pool. We stayed here one night on our Africa Safari tour, to relax in-between parks. Good for relaxing and families, no Africa experience. our son had the time of his life here

We just love this resort - always very enjoyable. Although the main Sun City Hotel (non-smoking casino area) is under renovation at present (should be complete by November I believe) we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay. They have gone out of their way to make sure guests still have a pleasant stay and have set up a temporary non-smoking casino... More
