This is the most peaceful calming place to visit with birds sounds all around, wild life sounds at night. The resort is clean with friendly staff. Modern units and a lovely place to visit. There is plenty places to visit, the water park is a must, the go cart track is fun, and if you have toddler they can play...

Facilities and rooms are of a very high standard. Decor is tasteful.Housekeeping is not matching standard of five star resort, as our oven was not cleaned. Best kiddies entertainment we have ever seen anywhere is the kiddies water park,really awesome if you have small children, especially. A nice self catering place to wind down.Service at the restaurant was very slow...

I think this resort has potential as it is beautifully situated if you want to go to Sun City. Our party of 4 didn't so we had none of the bad taxi experiences mentioned above. The grounds are well kept but the grass and shrubs/trees still have to grow and fill out. The pool is very pretty with plenty of...

Reasonably priced, great location near sun city and pilansburg and the garden/pool/kids play and relaxed atmosphere made us want to chill here longer. Pizza was great and don't care about wifi when on holiday so no probs there! Probably the best priced, perfectly located accommodation in this area.

The hotel itself is very nice however we're very disappointed with the "regular shuttle service" to sun city. The pool area was also nice and there was always plenty of sun beds. On the first night we were given a slip of paper from the reception with a taxi number and tried this number over 20 times in over an...

The Kingdom resort is wonderful for a family getaway. We spent a weekend there to celebrate our little ones 6th birthday.
