Tumbling streams and lush tropical forests

The Cascades, as its name suggests, is based on a theme of cascading water – both in the stunning interior decor and throughout the beautifully landscaped gardens – making it an oasis of serenity in the midst of the buzzy Sun City Resort 

This impressive 5-star hotel offers a range of eateries to complement the water theme, from the delightful Grotto restaurant, where you can dine surrounded by sparkling waterfalls and lush tropical vegetation to sumptuous cuisine in the elegant Peninsula restaurant, surrounded by lagoons which provide the perfect habitat for flamingos and swans.

The resort offers easy access to Sun City's entertainment centre with its cinemas, restaurants, cafes and shops and also, close at hand, is the amazing Valley of the Waves – one of the world's most exciting water parks.

Terrible value for Money

Milnerton, South Africa

Being fortunate enough and having travelled and stayed at numerous 5 Star resorts around the world I can safely say that the Cascades is nowhere near the same standard as those resorts. Room : 1. The bedroom side lamp did not work 2. The bath had been repainted poorly and there was a clear distinction which part had been redone as the enamel design was different. 3. The cold water tap for the bath only gave hot water as well. 4. There was no mini bar in the room. 5. Still water was not replaced the next day. Service : 1. While the service was barely acceptable it was not what one expects from a 5 Star Resort. A lot of training is needed to get to an international level. There was none of the welcoming feeling and friendliness you are supposed to get and just the general professionalism was lacking. 2. I only had my key card and not the piece of paper with my room number on at the pool. The lady refused to give us towels without the paper showing the room number and said we had to go back to the room to get it. Eventually she wrote out a piece of paper and gave us the towels which she could have just done first time instead of giving me a lecture. I am a paying guest and don't expect to get that kind of attitude from a staff member in a HOSPITALITY environment. 3. I got stuck in the lifts twice as the doors did not open. There was no apology or explanation given which is unacceptable. 4. I wanted to order food (after being stuck in the lift) and was told that the kitchen was closed. It was 9.32pm and I was told I was to late, how is being stuck in the lift my fault so that I miss the HARD 9.30pm kitchen cut off. A 5 Star resort would have made a plan especially in light of me being stuck in the lift to miss the cut off time. At checkout I heard other guests complaining about some of the same issues I experienced. At the price of the hotel you are better off staying elsewhere. The hotel is very dated. On the positive side the hotel has a lovely pool area which includes some slides and the resort itself has lots of entertainment for kids albeit at a rather steep price.
