“Fun in the Sun!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights between safari and flying home and I have to say we loved it. Very funky and new hotel - great modern style with sumptuous furnishings. Our room was beautiful with a very well appointed bathroom. Breakfast was also included in our rate which was a great start to our day. We really wanted somewhere to relax after many many game drives and car travel everywhere, and it was great to be in the Montecasino complex and feel safe and be able to walk around the many shops and restaurants which were great value for money, along with cinema complex, bowling alley and video arcade there was lots of family fun to share. The location was great as we had planned to go to the Lion Park which was only 15 - 20 mins drive away and the hotel easily organised a driver to take us there and also came to collect us when we called when we where finished. The Lion park is a great day trip from here as kids and we had the cahnce to get up close and personal with lion cubs and also giraffe which was a fabulous ending to our South African experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe room with two double beds which was more than fine for 2 adults and young chil...

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights in August. It is a nice looking hotel in both the rooms and other areas. Staff were all polite and helpful. The rooms aren't the biggest and has strange doors opening from the bath into the room and also a normal bathroom door. Wasn't a problem just thought it was random. Breakfast was really nice with lots of variety but felt they could maybe extend it to 11am rather than 10.30. Again not a problem as such, just a preference as I arrived late on the first evening from a long flight so would have liked to have slept longer. As it was very cold at night the bar area wasn't the best to sit in at night although they had brought in heaters it still wasn't too warm. We paid for the use of wifi but felt these days it could have been cheaper or free along with the room.
Overall though a very nicely styled and clean hotel in a good location.

If you are looking for quality then this is the hotel to stay in. The rooms are stunning and the beds are really comfy. The block out curtains allowed us to sleep late. Plenty to do Monte casino. Safe and secure with plenty of entertainment. Awesome restaurants.

Stayed here for 2 nights during a recent conference. The hotel and room was excellent. The food was great with something to match everyone's taste. It's a pity I was there on business, it was one of those places I would have liked to have taken my wife too. Definitely stay there again. Conference venue and facilities also come highly recommended.

Very nice hotel, spacious with separate tub and walk in shower. Beautiful property. One negative for me is that you have to go outside to get to workout facility. Location is great many shops and activities at monte casino are a short walk away. After hearing how dangerous sa can be felt completely safe at this property.

Recently had a 5-night stay at the Montecasino on a business trip. Although initially put off by the sheer size of the place (and the feeling of it being a lot like an over the top kind of facility found in Las Vegas), I very quickly readjusted my first impression.

Check in was a breeze, with friendly and efficient desk staff. I also appreciated the fresh iced beverage available, after having had a frustrating time at the airport waiting for a piece of luggage that took nearly 45 minutes to make its way onto the baggage carousel.

The room, identical to the photos shown on the TripAdvisor page, was beautiful. The bathroom made me think of something that could be seen in an Architectural Digest magazine spread -- really gorgeous. The big towels, luxuriously thick and absorbent, were a definite hit. The room itself -- although compact (but not cramped) -- was certainly adequate. Flat panel TV, with loads of channels, was a nice touch, even if there wasn't much time available to watch. The bed was comfortable. And the quiet was truly blissful -- I never heard a single sound from either room next door, nor from anyone in the corridor. Whatever was done to basically soundproof the rooms, it worked! As someone who tends to be a bit overly sensitive to noise, I slept nearly as well as if I'd been in my own bed. (The only thing missing was having my cats for the extra snuggle down factor.)

As other guests have raved, the breakfast buffet is stupendous. From the made-to-order egg dishes (which were very well prepared) to the many side dish options and loads of delicious fresh fruit, there were enough choices to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. And although we had to ask for refills on the coffee (rather than the empty cups replenished on their own), the restaurant staff was always prompt once they knew we were looking for a top up.

As another review mentioned, the gym is simple but adequate. I worked out every morning -- early, before 7 -- and had the place to myself every day. Never felt unsafe, even though -- as a woman -- I prefer to have at least one other person around, thanks to the door only able to be opened with a valid room key.

If you have the time, be sure to check out the African arts and hand crafts store directly across the street (one floor up from street level, with windows that overlook the hotel -- there's a buzzer just around the corner, in the passageway to the casino complex, that you have to ring to get into the building). Beautiful high quality masks, textiles and works of African art -- the kind of things that, for the most part, you won't find in any of the duty free shops at the airport.

For the value, as well as the convenience, I won't hesitate to stay here again on my next business trip to Johannesburg.
