Bush bangalows

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 May 2023
The unit was fine. Very clean tv and air-con works well. The unit was not very sound proof every car and every person that was out side sounded like it was inside. There was a live band at the shabeen and we did not speel at all the music was super loud until 2 am. The units are very nice but far from the main area. The shuttle service was terrible. The crocodile park was broken and there was no one in the reception area. It will be nice to go back with family because the units is super close to each other so you don’t have privacy if you are a big family this would be fine.

    The accommodation is drab and in dire need of overall maintenance compared to Sun City overall. Not value for money and attracted noisy neighbours opposed to the in nature location envisaged. Buffer breakfast at Cascades included is the best!

    Bush Bungalows is a great unspoiled gem with in the Sun City resort. Large Thatch Chalet close to the entrance of Sun City. This is not your normal hotel room, more like a bush experience combined with all the benefits of the Sun City Resort.

    Chalets are large, clean and more than exceptionable. Atmosphere is more relaxed compared to the rest of Sun City Resort hotels.

    I am a regular visitor to Sun City Resort and this was our third stay this year at Bush Bungalows, our 10th visit this year to Sun City Resort and the 2nd weekend in a row that we visited Sun City.

    Regrettably this time it was our worst stay ever and clearly the management of Sun City Resort do not care for these Chalets:

    1. Check-in what a disaster then we stay in this Bungalow then in that Bungalow and then when we arrived at the Bungalow they booked us into, it was the wrong room and we had to wait almost 45 min for new Bungalows key card..

    2. Air cons not working properly had to get maintenance to clean filters before it worked and according to them they last serviced the units more than 3 months back and they recommended to management to service units more regular as result of construction work in the area but management ignored this request.

    3. Show head was broken, when maintenance come to repair Hotel management wanted them to remove broken shower head and replace it with one in another room. But I refuse how can management rectify this and I forced them to go get a new shower head and replace broken one with a new shower head.

    4. Water was leaking threw underneath the glass partition in our chalet it was so bad that I slipped and injured myself, did report this and even wrote several email. but up to date no response or apology from Sun International.

    5 They advertise in the welcome book in your room that a complimentary shuttle is available, but when you phone for this you are told to find your own transport.

    Bush Bungalows is a perfect place, just a great pity that Senior Management and Hotel management do not care for this beautiful place.

    We loved our stay at the bush bungalows. Quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of sun city, but with the feeling of being in the bush. One definitely needs a car to get to most places in Sun City! Check in is at the Cabanas, and they gave us the option of staying there! Rooms at the bush Bungalows are huge as are the bathrooms! A fridge and coffee maker is also available in each room! Breakfast at the Cabanas the following morning was superb. Would definitely stay there again

    After two weeks on safari in the Kgaligadi Transfrontier Park, Augrabies and Kruger National Parks, we were ready for some rest and relaxation at Sun City. We booked the Bush Bungalows several months ahead so that we were assured of a quiet spot away from the crowds in the hotels.
    We arrived late afternoon with a huge thunderstorm brewing. We checked into our bungalow, unloaded the car and settled in as quickly as possible. The first thing that was not right was the fridge. It had been turned off at the wall, hidden behind the fridge in an alcove! We did not know where the switch was and so called out the manager who fixed it quickly but it was annoying as we had to wait for it to cool down.
    With the light fading fast and the rain threatening, we jumped back into the car and headed up to the hotels to check them out and make a selection for dinner before the light was gone completely and the thunderstorm arrived. The first impression of Sun City was one of total disbelief. It is the most extraordinary place. No expense has been spared but a lot of it is so over the top in extravagance and ostentatious tastelessness that you cannot describe it. It does have a beauty of its own in parts but some it is just out of this world.
    We decided to eat in the African buffet which was fun and the food selection was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive and it was good value. We had driven a very long way that day and were desperate to get to bed and so we headed back to our chalet for much needed sleep.
    I awoke at around 5.30am the next morning (as had been our habit on safari) and discovered that the A/C unit had dripped all night long into my carry-on case. The contents were soaking wet! I went for a shower and discovered that it leaked across the floor, parts of the shower unit were loose or missing, the soap dish was hanging down at an angle and would not hold the soap and finally the bath mat was soaked through from the leaking shower. A wooden spar on the towel rail was broken and worst of all, there was no plug for the basin! Having discovered all this in a short space of time I came to the conclusion, having slept very badly on the rock-hard bed, complete with the lumpiest pillows I have ever experienced, that we could not stay the full three nights in that bungalow. I dressed and presented myself at reception at 7 am to await the arrival of the manager.
    She was a quarter of an hour late for work, which did not help. Once at her desk I reeled off the faults and demanded, politely, to be accommodated in another bungalow or up at the hotel. It was just not acceptable and not up to scratch. She seemed out of her depth and unable to to deal with any of the complaints about the room. Neither did she apologise until I pointed out that she had not done so!
    I suggested that we went for breakfast and whilst we were gone, perhaps she could sort out alternative accommodation. I returned to our bungalow, woke my husband and, having informed him of my discoveries in the short-comings of the room, told him we had to move. The phone rang at that moment and I was asked to call the manager at the Cabanas Hotel to advise her of the issues. I did as asked and after breakfast, having had a conversation with the Cabanas manager en route, we were moved to a ground floor room at the hotel. It was so much more comfortable it was like being in another world. They provided feather pillows, a sheet as well as a duvet for the bed and later that day a bottle of wine and some nibble appeared as an apology. It was such a waste of time having to complain and then move but they must learn that they cannot take good money for accommodation if it is not up to standard. The bush bungalows, beautifully sited, are just not good enough.

    Room tip: Second floor rooms at Cabanas are more private than the ground floor rooms

    We booked a bungalow for our stay near Pilanesberg, the price was much better than the other Sun City options. It wasn't available for the last night of our stay, so we stayed at the nearby Kingdom Resort. However, we were still able to hang around Sun City, eat and use the water park after our checkout for no extra cost. The water park was fairly crowded, but the adults only Roman-style pool section was much more relaxed and comfortable.

    The bungalow was traditional style with a thatched roof - pretty neat for our stay. Spacious circular bedroom and large bathroom. Good AC, although there were some evening power outages, but that was affecting the whole area. Nice little outdoor sitting area to hang out at in the evening and watch the mongoose hang out. They seemed to help keep insects down.

    Breakfast was included at the little restaurant area next to the bungalows. There is a continental spread plus some meats, cheeses, and yogurt, and then you can select from a couple of breakfast entree options - bacon, sausage, egg, with chakalaka and fries side options. By picking a different one of these options each day we didn't get bored. The crocodile gardens are visible from the breakfast area which was really neat in the morning. We did the included crocodile show a couple of times because we enjoyed it so much!

    We had access to many other amenities at Sun City. There is an office by the bungalows where you can make bookings and order shuttles that take you around the resort. We booked our game drives here. The shuttles were not the fastest, and being at the end of the resort near the entrance we didn't seem to be high on the shuttle priority list. But the drivers were friendly and helpful. Early in the morning, I drove to a few different parts of the resort to go for walks, but driving and parking would be tougher in busier hours.

    We used the pool at the next door Cabanas resort, which had plenty of space and poolside service. We especially enjoyed the Shebeen - an authentic experience and great braai food, and a very kind waitress. Next door to the Shebeen, we enjoyed the cultural village experience. The highest end restaurants were unavailable when we were there. We tried a couple more casual places - I liked the Mozambican dishes at Calisto's and the bunny chow at Simply Asia (Simply Asia was also the only place open during the power outage because they could cook with a gas wok.) Steers and Spur were OK but not as remarkable. We were disappointed not to be able to eat at the Palace restaurant, but one of the drivers gave us a little tour of the tower and the famous restaurant during the day.

    Overall, we got a great deal and enjoyed our stay. There were a few closures and outages, but the employees really provided great service.
