The pool is huge and the water temp just perfect for a swim or dip. The staff are attentive and always found beds for us and provided plenty of towels. We enjoyed massages and cold and well prepared drinks. They also have a food service.

Absolutely super. Lovely big pools and plenty of loungers. They have a bar and a water type station whereby you can help yourself to water and lemon as a refresher. Scenery beautiful, totally opulent ! Dont doubt it.

The Palace pool deck is a magnificent place to spend some time and have a drink. The atmosphere is made really great with all the large stone decor and beautiful foliage. It is well worth the walk up all the stair to get there and the stunning pool will cool off you weary body.

We spent a few afternoons by this pool. The barman didn't know how to make a cocktail and used margarita mix instead of fresh ingredients. We ate a pizza, sandwich and burger all of which were disgusting with limp ingredients and nothing fresh or crisp.

Excellent service, delicious food, chilled wine, beautiful pool which you can simply dip into should the temp soar which is the norm at Sun City. This one of our favourite spots of lunch. And while a little pricey it really is well worth every cent. After lunch retire to a lounger in the shade for an afternoon nap. Yip this... More

I ordered a few drinks, including a Don Pedro, which were spectacular. The food and drinks were served promptly and we enjoyed the time by the pool.
