1) Covid 19 regulations not adhered to: Sanitizer found only at the main hotel entrance and at reception. No sanitizer at the entrance/ available to use at the dining hall. We had to go and fetch our own in our room. Someone(a white lady) who attended to the diners was walking around without a mask. 2)The service was very, very slow; both outside and inside the dining room, the waiters were very few about 3, and they were running around trying to meet everyone's needs.
3) No complimentary bottled water availed in the room. 4)No bar fridge. 5) When you order bottled water from the kitchen, they add extra charge for delivery(Paid R90 for 4 bottles of water).5)The tv channels need to be improved.6) The couch is worn-out. 7)Reception closes at 22:00; Calls never answered by reception.

The Good: The waiters were friendly, Dinner and drinks were nice. The linen was clean and the bed comfortable.

When we arrived for check in, my husband and I found two ladies at reception demanding a refund, stating that there was a dog on the premises and one of the kids was allergic, and sick as a result.

We were shocked to see the dog during breakfast, just roaming around the kitchen and the dining hall. When other guests complained about the presence of the dog, the owner and the group that he was part of, ignored their complains. We were also not comfortable at the sight of the dog during meals. It was a sign of disrespect to my husband and me, and the many black people, who constituted the majority of the guests. The owner of the dog seemed to be part of a very rowdy group that appeared to be a law unto themselves, who acted without regard for other guests.

The staff, who were very courteous and polite, appeared to be very much over-worked, we saw them each one of the six days that we spent at the hotel; and that looked odd. Ordinarily, one would expect a person who has worked what seems to be over-time, to be off duty for at least two days thereafter. However, but in the case of Sundown, we saw the same staff members serving us, and other guests, for almost all the days we were there.

For me, as a regular guest, the menu, particularly as it relates to breakfast, appears to have changed drastically. And, the food was not fresh, and stale.

We would love to return to Sundown in the near future. But for that to happen, there would have to be significant change, both in the manner in which staff members are treated.

For my husband and I Rustenburg is home away from home.

Sipho and Lira

Place was clean and quiet, we really had a great vacation. With just ten minutes to Sun City.
Food was good especially breakfast, weather mostly hot good for any season.
We are coming back to visit the hotel.

Due to the lockdown, we had to cancel our accommodation for our holiday over Easter weekend and we contacted this company well before the lockdown took effect. They send me an email and confirmed via phone that my refund would be paid not in full but they will still charge their normal cancellation fee and it will be in my account by 31 March 2020!

On the 2nd of April, I received an email from Tanja le Grange to tell me they have decided to hold my money until the lockdown is over and now today when financial services are allowed back... these people don't answer their phones!

It's a shame when people put profit before people!

Value for money, Friendly staff and tasty food

Pleasantly surprised by the professional game drive activity allowing my family and I a great experience in the Pilanesberg

A real turn after around from when we were last at Sundown 6 years ago. We were told of a new water park about to launch...

We will be back!

Thanks Sundown team

Had a really great time there every time I've gone. Great hospitality, great location, not much more you could ask for. The opportunity to go on game drives and the sense of community you get when at the main lodging areas will definitely bring me back

It was my third time going, and the renovation is amazing!
From chilling in the sun at the pool, to waking up early for game drives with professional guides, this place is definitely an enjoyable place to visit! Amazing water park too! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A hidden gem, we were pleasantly surprised at the new look and vibe. We had an amazing weekend, great game drive, relaxing massage. Excellent service from the staff. The food was exceptional. If you are looking for a fun getaway this is the new Sun City. Will definitely recommend this new found resort.
