Amazing treat for the whole family!
Amazing stay! Had a wonderful weekend. The food is absolutely incredible - best breakfast I have ever seen. The warm and cold taps were very hot - so showering was a bit of a challenge. Other than that - such a nice weekend.

Missing the Sun King
Ive been coming to Sun City (80s)and the Palace(90s) since it opened.Unfortunately seems that mgts push to cut costs will hurt service and for a claimed 6 star hotel and resort thats just unacceptable.That said the staff i encountered were all super courteous and efficient but problem is too few and thin on the ground resulting in even having to place my own lunch order at the pool bar rather than have staff taking my order.Overall Palace needs a refurb as looking a bit tired .The pool area dissapointing with deck chair covers looking like they havnt been upgraded in ages and were torn, in poor condition.
