Cabanas hotel is the cheapest resort in Sun City. The rooms are reasonable but definitely not worth the rates being charged. The staff were the biggest disappointment, service poor, and not aware of what is happening at the resort which I think is something a holiday resort cannot afford.
When we checked in we were informed at the front desk and on the room television that the Valley of waves was shut for annual maintenance and imagine out shock to see the next day afternoon when we were passing by to see it operational with people enjoying themselves in the water!! We were there for 2 days and got to use it for just an hour thanks to the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.
The buffet breakfast served has a lot of choice, but the food is not covered properly and we have masses of flies settling on the food and honey. The staff were unconcerned about this and hardly bothered to ensure no flies fell into the food. Service is pathetic.
There is a lot of choice of food at different locations so there is a wide variety of food to cater to different palates and different budgets. However if one wants to visit the Lost Kingdom one needs to call in, in advance else one cannot get in though the restaurants and shown as accessible to all.
The resort has a number of fun things to do so keeping oneself busy is not an issue and kids can have a whale of a time. A great place to go and relax close to Johannesburg except for the attitude of the staff.
