Sun City - The Cascades

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.

Zero stars

Edenvale, South Africa

Let me start off with the only positive thing I can say. The porters were the friendliest of all the staff. Other than that, nothing good. -Waffles and pancake/flapjack Station was low stocked, and when they did bring out more they were ice-cold. -Want a cappuccino? Go make it yourself. -No teaspoons on any of the tables. -Whipped cream was so hard it was butter. -Got sent an email that told us the pools were heated and free. Would've been better if they were in fact even open, but were still cold regardless. -Aircon didn't work so room was permanently stuffy. -No in-room info book, so no menu or help guide. -Telephones, TV and WiFi not working. -only one item on the kids menu - spaghetti. -couldn't find the hairdryer, then finally found it plugged in the bedside draw, 2m from the mirror and couldn't reach. -shower pressure was so hard, standing under a air-compressed high pressure hose would have been more relaxing. -Friday and Saturday evening bar entertainment was so loud we could hear them perfectly in our room with the windows closed and over the TV. Made sleeping with a baby great. -second morning they made up the room and took all the linen for the sleeper couch with them, so no linen for thr sleeper couch on the Seco d night. -reception staff didn't care when we went to complain, just took our details and said they'd call us. A week later and still nothing. Nothing about our stay was 5 stars. Will not be going back.

Nothing more than a 2 star!

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

We just got back from a totally amazing 2 week vacay in South Africa. We stayed all over the country from Cape Town to Knysna to Suncity and Johannesberg. We were really looking forward to our stay at the 5 star Cascades Hotel in Sun City. However it was the MOST disappointing hotel that I have ever stayed at. Firstly majority of the hotel was under renovation, the pool area , the garden area was all under renovation. We were not pre advised of this. Secondly the rooms are too small with very old and dull furniture. There are hardly any lights in the rooms as well. Thirdly the breakfast was horrible. Alot of the food items were cold and some even burnt. We could hear so many guests complaining. Last and most essentially the staff, they seem totally uninterested, there's hardly anyone smiling. Infact there are times when they can be quite rude and arrogant as well. The only saving grace was that we described our experience to the asst Manager, Mr. Lee and he acknowledged our concerns and thankfully arranged us to have our breakfast next day at the beautiful Soho Hotel .
