Put your swimwear, ask for a beer... another beer... another beer... have your lunch at the poolside... eat some ice cream... watch the birds and little monkeys walking around... enjoy!

The waiters are brilliant and attend to your every need, but we found the poolside lunch menu lacking in taste, the toasted sandwiches were bland and the burger was another bough patty and a little rubbery

I sat down only to realise that I would have to place my order at the counter. I ordered two ciders (at R26 each), which were warm and opened. I had to ask for glasses and ice twice. Very disappointing.

teh bar is good for day time drinks at the pool and shlush puppies for the kids. For an evening drink or sundowner there are more scenic places around.

The Poolside bar at the Sun City "main" hotel is in an ideal location and has a captive 'market'. The service is very slow and the quality of the drinks is not proportional to the price.

The service was slow and too few bartenders for the number of guests. The beers were warm and very expensive. It is a fantastice location though next to the pool
