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

Over all is very good, food variety in breakfast is very good. Room decorarionis very good, very modern, bathroom a bit small with bathtub and shower. I close my door to the balcony, as soon as I saw a monkey start climbing the wall. I believe the hotel should put wire, to prevent the monkey to climbing the wall. If... More

Nearly turned around and left - the foyer of this hotel is under construction so it is really not really inviting with the cordoned off areas,noise from the construction, garish and very tired carpeting, exceptionally lethargic reception staff and bell men who wait until you are queuing up to check in before they offer to help you with your luggage...

Hotel under major renovation and the hotel did not tell the travel agent. Rooms on the 6th floor had great views, quite spectacular in fact. Staff generally not that friendly but those in the dining room -Sun Terrace - are very good. Reception needs a lesson in friendliness compared to some other hotels in South Africa which are first class... More

I stayed at the Sun City Main Hotel with my family, and overall, we really enjoyed the stay. The rooms were quite comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Also, the pools and water parks were beautiful. However, it was winter and none of the water features were heated, so we didn't get a chance to experience them. My 12... More

Suncity is something if you miss you will not regret about. We stayed in Sun City Main Hotel. Hotel is dated and was under renovation. Service is good. Breakfast is also good. Pool area is exceptionally well. But, If you are visiting Pilanesberg National Park then only you may stay here or else you are not missing anything here
