Sabi River Sun Resort
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Hazyview
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Sabi River Sun is a gem of a resort. Yhe staff are very pleasant and ever willing to assist. The resort however is starting to show its age. The patios are starting to peel and the air conditioning needs an overhaul. The location is perfect for travel to Kruger Park or the Sabie/Graskop area.

It would be tragic if some money isn't thrown at this resort soon as this old lady is in need of a bit of TLC right now.

Stayed: January 2014, traveled with family

Needs better managers. Food was poor. Staff was friendly. Great entertainment for children. Tap water was extremely dirty!
Rooms were spacious. Enjoyed all the local attractions and restaurants close by.

the check in was so smooth and fast and the rooms are clean and neat,the staff was helpful throughout our stay,we stayed in room 200 and the only problem with it is that you can hear everyone passing,the hotel offers alot of entertainment and kids were kept busy throughout our stay.The place is so beautiful one wished could stay more days with hippos and crocs in the close proximity.I would really love to go back again and spend more time but this time on their chalets because they are so breath taking.To the management and staff of Sabi sun thank you

Stayed in a isx sleeper, very spacious,clean and neat. Bathroom is neat and well maintained.Staff was always friendly and willing to assisst. On arrival was surprised with welcome drinks and a snack(could be that it was a week before Christmas). Near to kruger park and attractions. A truly stay in resort if you have done the attractions.

Upon arrival we were given party packs for our kids. These were filled with crayons, coloring in book, blowing bubbles and sweets.

The itinerary for the kids was typed up and displayed on a chalk board. From a reptile show to a clown show, to bingo at the pool - much fun was had by all.
One day a golf cart arrived at the pool with about 20 blown up beach balls. These were thrown into the pool for the kids.

An amazing hamper was left in our hotel room. This had nuts, sweets, a perfect mango and jams from the area.

We stayed in room 234 at the hotel. This was just perfect if you have kids. This is the closest family room to the pool.

Our hotel room was clean and even had the Disney TV Chanel.
Breakfast - well now we can complain... Because we ate too much and gained a few extra unwanted kilograms!

The staff were all friendly and always keen to keep the kids happy.

I always like to go to a new destination every year but I am very tempted to return again next year as we had so much fun.

We have been to this resort many times and have found the place to be well run and relaxing. There is also a lot to do in the area with most tastes being catered for. On a few occasions, however, we have had issues with sewage problems-overflowing tanks and the resultant smell. This particular problem we have had on two separate occasions, albeit whilst in the same unit (38).
