Overall, very good. We did have a few issues with the room; Aircon not working in one of the rooms,shower doors hanging off, no latch on bathroom window so unable to secure room,shower head blocked in one of the bathrooms. We were not told of the need to book for Aircon or given a WiFi password at reception. The pools were very good especially the larger one. Very handy for Pilanesberg game reserve and Sun City

Confirm that Agoda Reservation is on the Kingdom Resort System. I the Kingdom resort to confirm that they had the Agoda reservation on their system. They checked and said they do not see it on their system but do see it on Agoda. They were supposed to take care of it before arrival. When I arrived they could not see the reservation. I showed them my Agoda receipt and they took care of it and got me a room, but there was a minute where I may not have gotten a room as the resort was fully booked for the night.

A great stay for a great price ”

A great stay for a great price - room was lovely, location was great, food was good & well priced. I have an issue with the procedure of photo copying my credit card alongside my passport. I’d prefer my card details be kept far more securely using the property management/reservation system rather than floating around on photocopied paper. Particularly as it was alongside a copy of my passport. I think this practise needs to be updated - as wonderful as the stay was, feeling open to fraud activity would make me re-consider a second stay. It’s not an accusation against staff, when travelling overseas you want to feel secure!

Unpleasant experience”

We checked into a very nice 2 bed villa, unpacked all our clothes, went shopping for meat to Braai, unpacked our groceries then went for a swim, came back a few hours later to find our door open, another couple looking around the house. Turns out they checked us into the wrong house. My fiance was seriously upset as in Cape Town this would never have happened that we needed to repack everything and move to another villa as they were fully booked. There was nobody on duty to do "damage control" other than saying sorry. This put a damper on our stay there. Eugene gave us a free buffet breakfast to compensate. He is the manager. We felt they made the mistake and they should have sorted it out "backend". Never the less, the resort is very nice, houses were very clean and it's a 3 minute drive from Sun City. We will stay here again and hopefully have a different experience.

The place is great, it is clean and safe. It is great value for money. However I just need to mention my disappointment with regards to the duvet cover in the main room. It was old and the inner could not fit properly. At the restaurant we the pizza base was a big no no, the use ready made bases which are thick and hard, they should make their own pizza bases.

We stayed in a brand new King Suite, which was absolutely stunning! It has a large bathroom and a seperate toilet. It also has a kitchen facility with kitchen utensils. It has a patio with a built-in braai braai stand. The only downside to our stay was that the walls seperating the units are extremely thin and we could hear our neighbours conversations very clearly, sadly the conversations only ended at 2am.
