Good place for a afternoon mocktail

Beautiful setting with plenty of seating for guests. I had a cool ice drink made from fruit without alcohol, but there was a alcohol choice. Once again good service.

after the excellent service we experience at Kwa Maritane it was such a let down. Even though it was pre arranged the Gate would not let us through. after the unpleasant experience we were subjected to poor service. the food was good.

Good waitress service and nice variety on offer here. Some freebies also walked round and even better- visiting massage therapists who were very skilled- not much better than a massage as you sunbathe!

We had the buffet breakfast at the Palace Hotel. It was on a Monday morning, yet the 400 seater restaurant was full. The spread was considerable and very tasty and fresh. The serve was good. The egg and omelette stations were especially popular. The crispy bacon was really great.

The service at the Pool Deck is very good. Ladies come around bringing towels and offering drinks as soon as you arrive at the pool deck. Its a pity that the drinks are very expensive for our South Africans.

The Palace Pool Deck provides a range of simple food, and a more expansive drink menu. This is at the main pool at the Palace of the Lost City. Understandably, it gets busy as the day warms up. This is a good option for a casual meal while you spend some time at the pool. The service was adequate. Thanks... More

Staff were antagonistic and unfriendly. We felt uncomfortable ordering anything as when we made an order and added a water as the person walked away they muttered at us under their breath. On another occasion they ignored us totally and continued to help persons of more importance. We eventually got up and went to find someone to help us. We... More
