“Wot no bar!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The room was good with every feature you could expect, although having to remove a wall panel to get at a plug socket was interesting. It has to be said the room was a bit of a hike from reception but that was probably good for me anyway! The downer was that the hotel had no bar - allegededly as it was off season it wasn't viable so we had to walk down the road to get a drink.........strange

Room Tip: ask for one close to reception and on the same level

We stayed at the cabanas for one night when in Sun City in May. Nice rooms, great breakfast but a hotel with no open bar in the evening is poor. Reception telling me to go to the casino next door was not really the answer. We spent over a 1000 rand in another bar/ pub venue in just over an hour so that's what you missed out Cabanos management and we were not the only disappointed guests. When we rang room service for ice they couldn't help but three hours later there was a bucket of ice on the doorstep?

Room Tip: Facing the lake gets the early sun.

I have stayed at the Cabanas at Sun City a couple of times, and at some of the other accommodation here too, and after my last visit to Sun City a couple of weeks ago, I have concluded that, for the money, the Cabanas are the best. It was also my wife's first visit to Sun City, and her Mum's, who was travelling with us, and they thought that the Cabanas were good. We had lake view rooms, close to each other, on the second floor.
The breakfast was good - hot and cold and an egg bar. Reception was helpful when our transfer was late. Some of the surrounds are a bit tired, but it was pleasing to see that, in the off-season, they were renovating the pool and its surrounds. That meant, of course, that the pool was closed when we were there, but we could have used other nearby pools had we wanted.
The room is the thing - and it was great. Large enough; comfortable in its entirety; comfortable beds; air con; flat screen TV; electronic safe; coffee/tea; toilet separate to the bathroom. We called for an iron and ironing board and they were delivered and collected promptly. We called for assistance with our luggage on departure - again, very prompt. On arrival (before lunch), our rooms weren't ready, but they took care of our luggage, so we were free to look around.
I'd choose to stay at the Cabanas again, as I reckon they just hit the spot.

We have been here a few times and love it every time. The staff are friendly and the room is spacious and clean and very comfy. We also had breakfast here and it was top class. Better than some 5 star hotels in Europe.Will go there again, every opportunity I get!!

On our way to Madikwe Reserve we decided to overnight at the Cabanas. Being a Vacation Club member, we have been spoiled with the luxury of their units compared to what we receive at the Vacation Club. Pool bar and pool was being renovated at the time we were there as well as the falls and ponds at the Cascades. Bad timing on our part I suppose. Also disappointing was the aviary which had about 10 birds in it compared to hundreds when we were last at the VC.

The biggest disappointment was the breakfast. If you had fried eggs or omelettes to order the food was warm whereas all the other items were cold and no one seemed to be bothered about it. (I'm not a big fan of cold scrambled egg on cold toast!!) For the price they charge for the breakfasts they could at least ensure that he food is always hot during the hours of service.

I'll think twice about staying in any of the resort's hotels again.

Nice hotel inside of suncity, breakfast is good although it gets really busy during peak periods where you have to wait for a table. Rooms are well appointed although the bathrooms could do with some improvement. Staff service was good.
