Sun city - you know what you're getting

Harpenden, United Kingdom

Stayed for a night while on route somewhere else. The SA national we were with wanted some childhood nostalgia, ;-) The Cabanas are pretty new and well furnished, but the rooms are small by any standard. That didn't bother us for a short stay, might be annoying if you're there for longer. They're basically apartment blocks, without lifts, so whilst they're low storey, it's worth paying a guy a few rand to carry your case there. They were a bit noisy at night, but not too crazy - just one or two folks on the way back from the casino I expect. Check in was hugely slow, not sure why. Check out was quick + friendly. The rooms are a short walk to a bar and a (non-heated) pool. Pool was *freezing* in August, but no worse than England, ;-) Loads of things to do at Sun City. We did a self drive in the game park - a short drive from Sun City through the resort. Breakfast was a slightly low rent buffet - but depends on your standards. This isn't super expensive, so the freshly cooked to order eggs are probably still good value. Coffee + tea were not hot when served, suspect we were unlucky. Overall: It's ok, don't expect mega luxury and you'll be fine. Saw tons of people loving it, not really my kind of place, but we chose it for someone else.
