We booked with great excitement as we had read and heard so much about the Palace at Lost City. It was booked as a superior luxury room for 2 adults and 2 children. When we phoned for confirmation it was said that an extra bed would be put into the room. On arrival we were greeted to a Traditional African...

This hotel is perfect for families especially with kids as there are plenty for them to do. If this isnt your thing then stay away! There is an entertainment centre with arcades and cinemas, water pools, water slides, all shared with other hotels within the sun city complex. It can get hectic but despite the huge size of the hotel,...

This is a special hotel, great design, vast public areas, and very atmospheric especially at night. Walking down to the main resort down the flare lit steps is so lovely, very atmospheric. It's a large hotel, large rooms, good service, and decent choice of restaurants though when we stayed we went down to the main sun city resort to eat...

Everything about the stay was excellent. Room was large and comfortable. Breakfast and dinners were superb. The South African barbecue that they are running now is well worth a try in the Crystal Court. Pool was lovely with great pool side service. Sun beds and umbrellas were scarce but hotel was fully booked and South Africa was having a heat...
