The place is a large resort with golf, tennis, etc and various apartments. My review applies only to the hotel.

The resort obviously caters to wealthy visitors to the Kruger Park. I found the hotel replete with a beautifully manicured golf course and very high-end cabins as well as the hotel itself to be disappointing. It is probably the only one available for tours, and it is professionally run, and is satisfactory for lodging. But we had been staying at hotels characterized by happy, always smiling and very helpful staffs, but in the two days I never saw single staff person smile, nor for that matter, the wealthy guests. Many seemed dour and unhappy. The staff almost seemed proud of the fact that they have no ATM machine (the town is too far to walk for one). I suspect that this is a management issue. Our rooms were adequate but nothing memorable. Our group of 9 was unanimous in our disappointment, and everybody commented that the food here was by far the worst of the trip, overcooked and tasteless.

The timeshare bungalows are in excellent condition after the upgrade. Golf course is good and the resort entertainment is great. Tennis, golf, pedal, lawn bowls. Close to Kruger Park with easy access. Game drives available, if you're that way inclined

Room tip: There are five swimming pools in the complex

Sabi river is part of the Sun group, which says it all. Excellent accommodation with onsite restaurant, spa, golf course, bowling and tennis and swimming pools.
Also kids entertainment and show during the holidays.
Friendly and efficient service.
Close to the Kruger Park.
Great views of the hippocampus and crocodiles from most chalets.

Room tip: Leave early to see the animals in the Kruger Park

Good comfortable option pretty close to Kruger gates.
Accommodation was tidy, good area for braaing and enjoying time after being in the car all day.
Seeing the hippos leaving their dam each sunset was special. We didnt hear about this cool experience and just stumbled upon it so front desk should be trained to mention this at check in.
Small shop with limited products (ice cream, souvenirs etc) so best do food shop in town
Suprisingly, didn't have a gym which was a shame for a big property like this.

Hi Mikeey

It's super exciting to see you had a beautiful holiday experience with us. There sure is lots to do and see on-site, for guests of all ages to enjoy. It was such fun having you stay at our gorgeous Resort, and we can't wait for your next memorable, peaceful getaway with us!

I do acknowledge your comment on the gym, Should the demand grow in the future, there is a possibility it will be considered. But I'm glad that you still had an enjoyable time with us.

Kind Regards
Katy

How it is possible that this hotel is a supposed 4 star facility is beyond belief. From our arrival to our departure an absolute negative experience from our room not being serviced notwithstanding various requests to supper services not starting until 20 minutes later than supposed 6pm.

We communicated the negative aspects to management that elected to ignore any issues and us as guests and early check out was done - zero accountability nor any attitude to make amends .

If possible consider other options in the area.

Room tip: Consider other options
