Newly refurbished rooms with good air-con, king beds, good bathroom ( no bath in our room) fridge,good TV (but no BBC news) excellent wi- fi,international plugs and 4 USB ports - quite impressive. However, without the curtains being drawn the room is open to the gaze of passers by. The breakfast buffet was very good but the hotel was not... More

There is a marked difference between the week and weekend rates. Taking the cost per night into comparison with other hotels, Sun City is in general expensive but it does come with a lot of extras, just make sure that you make use of what is on offer to get value for your money. The Cabanas are the least expensive... More

We were booked here by our tour operator and this was the lowest point of the whole trip. The delays in check in ,no staff to help with luggage, no privacy as people can look into your room. The child bed was not ready and the staff expected us to help with making the bed. Food area in utter chaos.

Premier visit this year. Spent time only at the pool/waterpark as a major part of the property was under renovation. Did not stay at the hotel. Was quite impressed with the space and planning. We chose to be at the adult pool which requires additional fee for entry. This is a nice little isolated spot if you are wanting some... More

Stayed at the Cabanas. Love Sun City but rather disappointed with Cabanas. Design wise for the rooms seems back to front with passersby able to look straight into your room and so lacks some privacy. The breakfast is a challenge due to the flow of guests and one has to get a table prior to heading to the buffet and... More

We stayed at the Cabanas for the weekend of the Dischem Sun City swim. It was extremely crowded. It was difficult to find a parking place, and then we had to wait half an hour to check in. One would think that additional staff would be put on duty on a busy weekend. Reception staff were friendly enough but could... More

We've been going to the Cabanas for many years and we've always loved it. I've heard that renovations have been made and got a surprise when we arrived. The decor is totally different and no longer have the same fun exciting feel, now its plain, boring and the "lost city" feeling is replaced with "hipster mall coffee shop". The rooms... More

Overcrowded. To family friendly...to many children. Was not very relaxing with screaming children around. The rooms are not sound proof. Found my room very cold and the heater on the aircon did not work. Breakfast was delicious though. There is stuff to do around the resort but preferably go with friends as it becomes very boring.

Dear guest We would like to apologise for the stay that you just had with us at Sun Cabanas. We must say our hotel is a favourite for families because the layout gives the children a playground. We apologise that your air conditioner was not heating. We have maintenance around the clock and they can fix that immediately. We will... More
