We booked into the well-named luxury units (120 sqm), and luckily got an outward looking unit facing the Pilanesburg hills, and 50 metres from the Lost City golf course, which you can jog around. Arrival reception very tedious, but good value midweek in off season. AND free WI-FI, which you didn't get in the Cabanas when I was there 3... More

Rooms newly renovated and the public areas have a new fresh look. A beautiful room with all the amenities. Stingy with soap and shampoo( bring your own if you cannot stand those tiny discs of soap). Even stingy on tea and coffee goodies, one each per day and no long life or fresh milk.

We were invited to the Sun City hotel for the Nedbank Golf Challenge. i am submitting this review at 2 am as the noise levels make it impossible to have any sort of sleep. The noise level of the 'entertainment' in the smoking casino two floors down was off the charts. The same smoking section is also not enclosed which... More

Sun City Main Hotel has a new look. A little like Las Vegas now, so no more jungle look. Most of the previous look has gone but I think they should have changed everything and not left a few old remnants which tugged at the heartstrings. We were there at the opening. It was very busy with angry complaints about... More

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...
