Sun City - The Cascades

Tumbling streams & lush tropical forests

The Cascades at Sun City, as its name suggests, is based on a theme of cascading water, both in the stunning interior decor and throughout the beautiful landscaped gardens. This impressive hotel offers a range of eateries to complement the water theme; such as the delightful 'Grotto' restaurant where you can dine surrounded by sparkling waterfalls and lush tropical vegetation. Alternatively, you can enjoy a sumptuous meal in the elegant 'Peninsula' restaurant, surrounded by tropical lagoons which provide the perfect habitat for flamingos and swans. The resort offers easy access to Sun City's entertainment centre, which has cinemas, restaurants, cafes and shops. Also close at hand is the amazing Valley of the Waves, one of the most exciting water theme parks in the world.

terrible service

Dromara, United Kingdom

We have been coming to Sun City for over 30yrs now but I have to say the stunt to get money from me today in the Cascade hotel is probably the worst I’ve experienced. This happened when I tried to retrieve my 600ZR (£33) for our pool towels. The lady told me management had removed all the cash and she couldn’t help. After talking with her for 4-5mins she then suggested that I make a donation of this to her. I was stunned! No I responded and then I went to see someone in manage. At that the lady said “ I’m only joking” and burst out laughing, then the barman joined in and they had a good laugh together. I told her that this was a very cheeky thing to try and I don’t see the joke. I am stunned at this stunt to get money from there guests. Shame on you.

Not quite 5 star

Pretoria, South Africa

We have stayed at the Cabanas before a couple of times and decided to upgrade to the Cascades this time. The location is great so close to the Valley of the waves and restaurants so we didn't have to use the bus. The room was good with a comfy bed and clean bedding. The bathroom plumbing was less desirable with black mould at the surrounds of the shower and the basin drained very slowly. Towels were lovely and thick! The reception check in was dismally slow and not terribly welcoming or personal, but not unfriendly. Despite requesting a room high up with a view, we got put in a second floor room. The breakfast was good with nice décor and piano music. The only issue was a total lack of waitresses to provide tea and coffee. Every day we had to head hunt an available person! The pool was nice but would have thought that in a 5 star establishment that waiters would be available for drink orders at the pool chairs... I had one offer in three days!! Lovely well kept grounds and clean accommodation.
