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

The shrimp and calamari pizza was delicious and a very large portion for one person. The view can't be beat, and you'll find a great seat, whether you are looking for a little sunshine or a little shade.

The ambience of the pool at the Palace is lovely but there is too much chattering of Gary Player spa ladies - they either need to keep busy or go elsewhere other than sit on the wall behind.... sorry ladies...
