We had a 2 bedroomed semi detached Lodge. We had neighbours but the way the lodges are constructed you don't hear them. Our back garden looked out onto the river. We had Woodland Kingfishers In the tree just outside our veranda. Loved being outside under the thatch roof on the veranda - great during the storms. The cleaner was lovely,...

Just getting out of town, and entering the gate to this facility you are convinced; it is a great choice! The challets are spacious, kitchen well-equiped, the airconditioners per room, and just as a treat a braai in safety of sun and or rain!

We loved our stay here. The living area in the chalets are huge which creates an open atmosphere. We particularly enjoyed the little stoep with adjacent braai area. One night we encountered a baby hippo right outside our chalet so be careful if you wander around outside. Grounds are kept in an immaculate condition. The best of all is their...

Sanbonani – we just loved our week here, it is a lovely resort, conveniently located close to the Kruger Park for day trips, (10 minutes from the Phabeni Gate).

The resort is very appealing a it sits 40 kilometres from Paul Kruger Gate or 10 kilometres from Phabenie Gate. 5 kilometres from shops and eating. Everything fine at reception, until you mention you are timeshare and attitudes change towards you. The restaurant food was limited to a set menu each day. The wording you get what you pay for...

We appreciate the comment made in your review and thank you for your time. Wifi at the Resort is an ongoing challenge from our service provider. With regard to the mention of Timeshare and attitude at the Reception, it is certainly not Sanbonani Resort Hotel & Spa's intention to give anyone that impression. I did send you a message requesting...

The check in process was ok altogether as soon as we mentioned timeshare the attitude did change. The wifi is a joke you have to pay R30 for 100mb and it's only available in reception and pool areas and not in the chalets. The 100mb is a joke and it was cheaper for me to pay for data at home!!...

Sanbonani Resort Hotel & Spa take all the reviews seriously, we really appreciate your time and thank you. The resort is situated in Hazyview, with many trees and undulating grounds.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review, the above mentioned price per person compares favourably in the area for a full buffet menu. The life blood in our area is tourism, local and international, individual and in groups, and we believe that at any Restaurant you visit the service will be slower when the Restaurant is full....
