A wonderful and restful resort. The hippos (especially in the evenings) and bird-life on the property afford excellent "watching" and compliment the sporting facilities which are on offer. If the bath in the second bathroom were to be converted into a "walk-in" type shower I believe the facilities would be greatly increased.

Getting out of Joburg for a long weekend at Sabi River Sun with the kids was great! Beautiful hotel grounds, lots for our kids to do (9 and 11) and great food!

Spent a wonderful week at the resort, but must complain about the bad service at the restaurant. Arrived around 10:30. Waited for service, complained. Waited for food. Nobody attending to order drinks. Complained, and was told I needn't pay. I asked to speak to the manager, and was told he would come back to me. When I checked out, I... More

We had a fabulous time at Sabi River. We - 3 families - plus another 4 or 5 families from Jozi, made it feel like a great big family on a relaxing holiday. We all enjoyed the different activities - golf on the challenging course, tennis, cycling, some swimming. We enjoyed the 19th hole the most, even with the sometimes... More

Our 31st visit and once again all expectations were met. There is no doubt that Sabi River Sun is one of the top five time-share resorts in South Africa. Just a pity that Hazyview is no longer the peaceful country hamlet of 20 years ago.

Only stayed 2 nights, arriving late afternoon the first night and leaving after breakfast the second night.

We stayed at the timeshare chalets for a week and it really is a super resort. The chalets have everything that you need for a self catering holiday. We traveled with my two daughters and my grandson and all enjoyed the stay immensely. The resort has a really nice golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools, etc. and they arrange activities...

Title says it all. The resort is lovely but attention to detail is average to poor. From check in to restaurants to pool service all round it is poor or let's say as expected.

We have been going to Sabi River Sun in August for 21 years and it is fabulous. I look forward to this week for a whole year. The chalets are well-equipped, well maintained and very comfortable - the beds are the best! The golf course and gardens are beautiful and there is plenty of entertainment for all.
