Relaxed & casual, perfect for families

The most relaxed and casual of all Sun City's hotels with an abundance of activities aimed at children and an informal and casual elegance appealing to adults too, The Cabanas is the ideal choice for families. Small informal cabana style blocks open out to lush, tropical gardens, which lead down to the lake and Waterworld, with lots of water based activities. Fun facilities include the pool, mini golf, children’s play area and bird and animal sanctuary whilst the Palm Terrace serves a wide range of dish options to suit all the family. Wi-Fi is available for a fee.

Cheap and Cheerfull

Doha, Qatar

Stayed at the Cabanas for a week in the winter season. The price was very reasonable and the staff were very helpful. The buffet breakfast is not fancy but it is more than adequate with a reasonable amount of choices. The rooms are just big enough for two people but definitely too small for a family with two children. The only food available is the buffet breakfast and a poolside bar that serves bar like food until 8 pm. Guests will have to go to other restaurants/hotels on the sun city property to have proper meals. This is not ideal. There is a food court at the cascades hotel that has a good choice of restaurants and fast food places. I believe one or two of those restaurants provide a delivery service. It’s the cheapest of all the hotels on the sun city property and works since there are so many activities that the room will only be used for sleeping. Having said that I think the next time I’ll stay at he cascades as it is a lot nicer. The picture is a sunset view from the garden at the cabanas.

Good and Decent place in Sun City - Awesome Breakfast

It is a very good and decent place to stay for the price in Sun City. The approach to the rooms is a little long and confusing especially since it is not well lit but over all pretty good. The Breakfast is awesome with many live counters to customize eggs, pancakes. Have separate Vegetarian counters as well, if one needs those. A decent souvenir shop with courteous staff and reasonable prices
