Greeted by the beating of drums you are welcomed to your piece of luxury in Africa. Grand and opulent in many regards with great service levels and eager to please staff. Stayed with Grandpa and our 2 kids who loved the heated pool in winter. Rooms are dating though and need the maintenance staff to pay more attention to things... More

We have been to Sun City a few times and thought we would spoil ourselves by stsying at the Palace. Allthough the dimensions are impressive our room rent worn out with very little attention to detail. Cigarette buts lying outside the balcony with plastic knives and forks. A tear in the couch and chips in the bath, no bath plug... More

We stayed for three nights at this hotel with our two daughters that are 8 and 9 years old. We have been treated with the outmost respect and hospitality for the duration of the stay. The breakfast is spectacular, the high tea is suitably opulent and the valley of the waves does not disappoint. If visiting in winter, however- remember... More

If you are coming to South Africa for a holiday, it would be a crime to not stay here(especially if you are with elders and kids). Best luxury, best hospitality, endless activities, surreal beauty. I stayed for 2 nights. Could have stayed for 1-2 nights more. Will love to come again.

This hotel has everything you would expect from a luxury resort, amazing service, rooms and ambience. We loved every minute here, from the complementary wine, fruit basket, and kids t-shirt and gift pack for our 6 yr old to the amazing buffet breakfasts and that whenever we went to concierge or reception they remembered our names. I can not recommend... More

We stayed at this hotel as a last minute decision one night after spending the day at Sun city for a birthday. We love luxury hotels, and thought this was a great opportunity to see for ourselves if this hotel only a couple of hours away from home, is as great as they claim. I can see why tourists might...
