Sun City resort consists of 5 hotels ranging from 3 stars hotels up to the luxurious 5 stars "The Palace of the Lost City". Staying in any of the 5 hotels allow you free admission to most of the activities available in the big resort. Sun City itself is surrounded by green mountains from all directions and in the middle...

Our room was near the casino door and very noisy. When we complained the next morning due to lack of sleep management passed the buck. They basically shrugged and said we should have asked for a better room at 2 am when our daughter was sleeping. Lousy attitude by management and lack of any real concern for our poor experience.

First visited this hotel about 30 years ago! She is still standing proudly on the beautiful grounds of Sun City. A little old around the edges but the magnificent grounds make up for that. The hotel name has recently changed to Soho. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis. Being out of season unfortunately we could not order meals...

Visited Sun City during March 2017 for our 10th wedding anniversary. Stayed in the Cabanas. We had a great time, everything was good and the staff was very friendly. One big PROBLEM, though, was the bees at the breakfast buffet and around the pool area during the day. Especially when you are allergic to bee sting!

Where to start? OK, we arrived here after our little bush adventure looking forward to giving our 3 year old the joy and excitment that Sun City had to offer. After checking in realising our bed was infested with ants, and ripped curtains we changed rooms. The followng morning consisted of running to the pool with excitment to enjoy the...

Sun city remains beautiful, the accommodation, restaurants, valley of the waves and kids / entertainment is fabulous. Travelled with my sister, the gambling section is smaller than Grand West in my opinion and is sadly "mickey mouse" from a gambling point of view. Having said this I think its a great conference venue and a wonderful place to take kids

I have visited Sun City many times over the years and it always held a place as a prestigious holiday so imagine my surprise when I spent a night at the Sun City Hotel and found that the standards have dropped so drastically. Firstly, the bathroom could have been cleaner, for example the trash could have been emptied. Secondly, it...

Loved Sun City, it's a world of it's own. Excellent service and brilliant staff just make this a wonderful destination. Lots to see and do - The Lost City is close by and the Pilanesberg is excellent for 'Big 5' game drives. Casino's, brilliant restaurants and bars and outstanding entertainment. It's a magical world - will be back.

We booked a few days away at the Soho hotel before the December rush, our 3rd visit to Sun City in 2016. As always, a great experience. We love Sun City, there is so much to do and it was buzzing with locals and bus-loads of tourists. The Sun Central renovation was completed the month before and we enjoyed spending...
