Not as nice as it use to be.....

My fond memories were spoilt when I took my family here after 2years. Seems like the resort might be missing something and would like to think it is temporarily. The showers were not as clean as they used to be, the breakfast was dissapointing and the gardens seemed neglegted. The cigarette smell in the aircons is disturbing for a smoke free hotel. The staff must be complimented though for keeping high spirits. Receptionists Whitney and Harriet as well as their Manager, Refilwe did well.

Lovely stay - vehicle theft unfortunately

My family and I stayed over at the Cabanas (Sun City) on the weekend of 9 – 12 August 2018. We had a very pleasurable stay and enjoyed many aspects of Sun City and The Valley of Waves, maze and trail walk. My kids were especially delighted with the new zip-line course and insisted on doing it twice - really worth the R195 you pay to see the joy on their faces! Upon departure unfortunately we found that our car was unlocked (not by us – we always make sure that our vehicle is properly locked and test doors to make doubly sure in case of remote jamming). Our car was somehow broken in to and although we only miss a medi-kit, some gifts and a few smaller items we were very disappointed that our privacy had been invaded and that this kind of activity took place in a secured parking zone and at a prestigious facility such as Sun City. We only realised items missing once in Rustenburg and therefore did not report while at Sun City. This has no doubt a negative effect on Sun International’s reputation as a safe holiday destination and I am sure that other visitors have encountered the same misfortune. I have since read the reviews and found many mentioning theft from rooms... We are hesitant to visit again. We requested Sun City per e-mail to respond on how they would ensure that this doesn’t repeat in future, with no response.
