Prepare to wait a while to order drinks and receive them. Especially close to closing time! Service staff are more interested in their conversations with other staff than serving you. We have used this bar on a number of occasions and received the same service.

The surroundings are equisite, the swimming pool is safe and spotless. The service could be better but it's a huge area to serve and the waiters and waitresses are so pleasant, friendly and helpful. At a 5 star resort one would expect hot food, even at the pool; bit it's a far walk from the restaurant to the various patrons... More

The Palace pool is a great spot to relax away from the crowds at the Valley and the adult pool. The cocktails were delicious, especially the pina colada! Staff were friendly and helpful but service was very slow. Menu very limited with nothing light just to snack on, you had to order a meal. Expensive (which is to be expected... More

Yes, I did mean to write Sunsantional, which is one of their signature cocktails I ordered whilst lounging by the Palace pool. The pool area is lovely and well tendered to, service is great with even foot and shoulder massages being offered (for a price) to take your relaxation to another level. Lovely live music, not intrusive at all added... More

Awful pizza and awful service. We popped into Sun City to have a look on way back from game reserve to Johannesburg airport. The place was impressive, think we just got unlucky with our choice of restaurant. Would avoid pool restaurant at The Palace - rubbish.

So this is how it goes when we're at The Palace of the Lost City : arriving, check in, straight down to the pool! I relax with a book and hubby reads the morning papers. Alfred or Jacobeth comes by to take our order, normally just still water early morning. And they pop up every now and again to see... More

Pool menu good selection and service very good. You can have a lovely massage at the pool for 25 minutes back, neck and shoulders or just your feet, I recommend it! Very relaxing.

We stayed at the Palace during their winter so there were no crowds around the pool or restaurant. Actually we were the only people there at that time for lunch. We were looking for a light snack type lunch. I can say that the service was excellent and the meals were very good.
