We stayed at the Cascades for a couple of nights - we were looking for some R&R and Sun City really does deliver. We relaxed at the pool, went for walks on the golf courses, wined and dined and spent a little time and money in the casino. The room was great, nicely furnished and finished and the bathroom well appointed. Negatives for a four star hotel though; the curtains didn't fit the windows properly, the shower head was poor and the coffee/tea offerings weren't too generous. Silly things, but they need attention for this level of hotel. The service levels were awesome and again, Sun City is wonderful - for those with or without kids! Collapse

Although we only spent one night here, the hotel and rooms are clean and luxurious. The staff are well mannered and well informed.. The breakfast variety and quality were excellent. I would not go to Sun City as an adult destination, but the 3 teens we took said they had a really amazing time. They enjoyed the freedom, the free transport to the different resorts, the valley of the waves, the arcade and the bowling. The business centre and wifi are great as well. Collapse

Keeping in mind Sun City is exactly what it says on the box (an entertainment resort with a giant casino and mall-like entertainment arcade/eating area, surrounded by a gorgeous nature reserve), I took my two (teen and pre-teen) kids for a short stay and we all really enjoyed our time at the hotel/resort. I hadn't been to Sun City in years and I love how beautifully the 80s architecture of the Cascades has stood the test of time. I hope they keep the original fixtures as long as the hotel lasts (beautiful brass light fittings, cylindrical elevators, all of it!) Not to worry though, the rooms themselves have been upgraded and have giant TVs and pretty fast free guest WiFi. My favourite part about the room, though, was the view – out across a jungle-like garden and the Cascades' water features. It was lush and totally quiet. Honestly, when we woke up each morning we could have been the only ones there. We stayed in a family suite that had a pull-out bed in the sofa/couch, which was completely adequate for our needs. The main bed itself was super comfy, and had nice linen which I appreciated. My other favourite feature was the Nespresso machine, so I could make good coffee whenever I wanted. There were a few things that weren't so perfect, mainly the pool being closed for maintenance when we were there (it's such a great part of the hotel). Which is why this review only gets 4 stars. Also, I do think that the room service and on-site restaurants could ramp up their salad and vegetarian options about 1000% (iceberg lettuce lives on strong, to go with the 80s motif?). Also, too many darn smokers. Yuck. The room rate includes access to the Valley of the Waves (fake beach! fake waves! but the water is blue and the sky is blue and the sun is shining, what's not to love?), and of course the famous hotel buffet breakfast. I've certainly had better and fancier buffet breakfasts at 5* places, but I can't fault this one (except maybe the scrambled eggs on the buffet were cold). It's generous, caters to every single taste – there is fruit, the full English, flapjacks and Nutella for kids or sweet-toothed adults, plus an egg bar, all the cereals... And I must say, I was happy, and full, on each day we ate there. The kids of course LOVED it. Pulling this all together were a group of super-pleasant staff. I think that barring one waitress on our first day, every single person who spoke to us, from waiters to the concierge to housekeeping, was wonderful. And that makes a big part of the impression. Oh: I saw another review comment that there wasn't much to do... That's far from true, but most of the activities (aside from the Valley of the Waves) come at a cost, and that can rack up pretty fast! My kids would have spent their entire trip, and my entire bank account, at the arcade inside the mall-like Sun Central (fast food and retail places, including a movie house and a nail salon and the arcade), which is literally across the walk from the Cascades but (mercifully) is completely insulated in terms of sound, and doesn't impact the view or anything. But I also managed to persuade them to play mini golf. One of them went go-karting. We watched a new movie at the very comfortable movie theatre. We also walked around the resort, went to the Cascades' small but lovely aviary... There were tennis courts and swimming pools (at other hotels, sob). And then the option of: game drives, segway tours, hot air balloon rides, a maze, a craft beer experience, and so on... So: lots to do if you have the budget. As for me, I'd like to go back when the pool is open, and sit with a book poolside, drinking cocktails, surrounded by the quiet jungle. Collapse

Visited with family - it's room sizes disappointed and we wee quite cramped amongst us - however the best thing was just opposite the hotel was a connection to the sun center where all the action was and we had a great time.
