The cocktails were lovely and the staff were very friendly .... when you could find someone! As per my review for the palace of the lost city. Things seems to be alipping a little here and the elegance is starting to be lost somewhat.

We visited the Observatory Pool Deck & were blown away by the attentive service provided by Regina. She helped us to present South Africa as an excellent destination to our European visitors. This is truly remarkable & she must be applauded for her attention to detail and service with a smile.

Every year when I go, I prefer the quietness of lounging at the pool, great cocktails, lovely clean pool. Away from the hustle and bustel of the Valley of waves. Also

Enchanting atmosphere, charming service, tantalizing cuisine, and (surprising) reasonably priced! A Must experience if you visit Sun City!

A great secret at the Palace , kids love the warm water in Winter and absolutely luxurious environment with great food and service. One of the best Bacon and Cheese burgers around and kids won't share with you. You day will be stress free and relaxed

Cocktails are that one drink that must be enjoyed at leisure in a beautiful surrounding. Just to sit there appreciating your friends company in this magnificent setting! Priceless.

My experience with the pool deck was for the most part a self serve experience. Service staff were not be found, I found myself walking up to the bar, and works to flag down a bartender ( while dodging scores of wasps) although the wait staff seemed almost invisible, the pool area was swarming with offers of foot massage from...

Apparently a 5 star hotel, certainly not a 5 star lunch. Sure we were a large group. But bringing adults good way before kids orders was painful; frozen margaritas were not frozen, Niçoise salad had tinned tune (yes, really!), Caesar salads did not have enough dressing; and so on. Really poor experience all round - and far from cheap. We... More
