Apon arival we realize...No cell service. When we complained and ask to book out we were told that we are welcome but no refund is possible. We are business owners and need to be available at all times.

We had such a beautiful-fantastic week at sanbonani Resort. The staff were super friendly and extremely courteous! The grounds, the lay-out-everything was 1st class! It definitely has been one of the smartest resorts that we’ve stayed in☺️! The chalets were amazing . There was Dual DSTV!
The rooms had aircons/heaters. They were serviced 7 days of the week(wow). Fresh towels were provided daily-and we didn’t have to pay to utilize the facilities(putt-putt, tennis, etc). And-the chalets had no insects(ants/roaches)
Thnk u so Much Sanbonani! You guyz made our holiday super awesome ❣️

PLEASE do not attemp to order pancakes from the restaurant!!! I think dry rubber would be a better discription for their pancakes. I have asked to speak to the manager but he/she just ignore my request.
The services is also not to mention in the open area. Think I am going to re-think coming to Sanbonani in the future. Not worth it. Was always a wonderful place but clearing it is not run properly at the moment.

we stayed here for a weekend and the hotel was very clean and comfortable. We had all the amenities we needed. This is a very quiet and peaceful place with lots of activities within the hotel. It is also centrally situated to everything in the town and close to the Kruger Park Phabeni Gate. The service was great, the staff was very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was also good, fresh and well prepared.

We had a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom chalet overlooking the river. The chalet can sleep 8 comfortably and no one is on a sleeper couch. Perfect for 4 adults and 4 children. Well appointed with all the necessary amenities. The staff are fabulous with wonderful happy greetings. The grounds are well kept and if you’re lucky you see the hippos out in the evening munching on the grass. Phabeni Gate to Kruger is close by so day visits are a breeze. A perfect spot in the beautiful Lowveld
