Owner description: Botswana is where the white-hot Kalahari Desert meets the wild Okavango River delta in an explosion of green that shelters and feeds some of the continent's most prolific wildlife. And hidden in the searing sand is one of the world's richest sources of diamonds.Sun International's luxury Hotel, Casino and Conference Centre in Botswana is another glittering diamond. The Gaborone Sun located in the capital City of Gaborone, offers world travellers and business people a sophisticated conference centre and meeting place with the added advantage of a premium casino.Travellers are drawn by the promise of high adventure; to a place that exposes all who visit the extremes of the African interior. Africa is the most alluring continent on earth and Botswana is the sorcerer.The Gaborone Sun's hotel rooms provide a home-from-home feel where you can relax or catch up quietly on some after hours work. The beautiful rooms in their soft African-hued furnishings offer a serene escape from the bustle of the boardroom or the excitement of the casino.The hotel dates back to the seventies and has been extensively refurbished and refined. Accommodation includes a total of 196 rooms including 1 Standard paraplegic room, 1 luxury paraplegic room, a palatial Presidential Suite, 3 suites, 38 luxury rooms and 152 Executive Rooms.Take a tour of our property and see what we can offer you. No matter if you visit us for business or pleasure, if you stay for a month or just stop over for a night on your way into Botswana, we would love to welcome you home. It will be our pleasure to have you as our guest.

“Convenient in the heart if the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have to admit that the room quality of the Gab Sun was far superior to the Grand Palm. At least Sun International keeps up with the upgrading and renovations

“Eww”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Ordered chicken noodles and was one of the worst meals I have ever had in my life (coming from someone with low standards). The noodles were like Styrofoam! The salad was a little brown and the chicken was dry, but that's a given as it was off a breast. Had a long island ice tea with it and that was good so just go there for alcohol.

“Good for a short stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Stayed for a couple of nights on a business trip in November. Nice looking pool - which I did not get to use. Everything is just fine. Not great, not bad!

“Terrace drinks and supper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Very good service and food quality! Even though miles from the ocean, the fish is excellent!Terrace is on pool side so very pleasant on hot evenings, and the thousands of birds in the nearby trees are good conversation topic!
