Reviewed yesterday NEW

Housekeeping and repairs team should ensure that each chalet is working perfectly before new time sharers arrive each week. Fridge, TV, Plumbing and leaks should always be checked. The Golf Course and Grounds were in wonderful condition. Staff were generally very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping were ineffective to a large degree because Elaine was unable to get the plumber to... More

Upon arrival/check-in we were NOT greeted by a friendly staff. Three members were behind the desk and all just looked up at us and then back down it wasn't until I said HELLO cheerfully that they looked back up and asked if they could help us. After paying upfront for our room (which I've never had to do before) we... More

My family and I look forward to going to Sabi every year! The golf course is short but challenging and it's always a... More

We stayed in the hotel at Sabi River Sun, not the timeshare units. The hotel room was very pleasant in terms of decor and comfort. Food in the restaurant was good. General service in the hotel was average, but with not much enthusiasm from staff. My daughter left a bag with an iPod in it on the lawn when we... More

Ideal location to visit the Kruger and the Highveld. Hippo pool was wonderful with great bird sightings as well as hippos and crocs. Lovely looking golf coarse. The gardens are great for a good walk. Perry's Bridge is just down the road for some souvenir shopping and great cakes and coffee at In Da Belly.
