Sun City Cabanas

Sun City, South Africa

The hotel

The Cabanas hotel is ideal for the whole family, offering relaxed, informal, comfortable accommodation in a lush lakeside setting. The hotel is so-called because the rooms are arranged in cabana-style blocks. Waterworld is Sun City's lake area where you can partake in various water sports, including water-skiing and parasailing, or, for the less adventurous, a gentle cruise is always pleasant. There are many different activities for the children such as the Animal World, Kamp Kwena children's club and an adventure playground. Adults can soak up the sun poolside and enjoy chic cocktails at the Cabanas Pool Deck.

A great place for a family getaway. Round the clock action and activities. Spoilt for choice and round the clock transport around the resort. No time to be bored. Accommodation small, but functional. Food, everywhere, and priced according to your pocket and requirements. Elegant or casual.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating A good stay without extras

All and all it's good value but the other hotels in the area is probably a more luxurious choice. Read less
