I've stayed here on many occasions for work and have enjoyed every stay so far. The staff are generally quite friendly, in room facilities are great and the beds are oh so comfortable :) If you're lucky enough to get a room on the 6th floor, ask for one facing the pool area as the morning view is quite beautiful

As a proud South African, I have to mention my complete and utter dissatisfaction and disappointment at the entire Sun City Complex. Spent 3 days there in January, with guests of mine from overseas, (ex-South African's), only to be ripped off at the accommodation prices, messed up booking, and then to top it all the quality of the service -...

We were taken to our room after checking in. The room was quite nice and the activities at The Valley of the Waves was wonder full. Enjoyed the movies.... More

I have been visiting Sun City for the past 2 decades. In recent years my friends and I have noticed a decline in the level of standards throughout the resort, especially with regards to service. We're an easy-going group and don't really complain. We usually just make jokes about it and go back anyway, because we have fond memories of... More

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
