We booked in over the peak period so the hotel was quite full. The room was ok. The hotel did provide a cot for the baby to sleep in and had wonderful activities for the kids, so I would definitely recommend this place for those with children. There is a swimming pool, chess set and a wooden play gym.

Sanbonani is set in beautiful, lush & immaculate surroundings along the Sabie River. The chalet we stayed in needed a new stove and the bathrooms were smelly most of the time which means the plumbing needs serious attention. The chalets are attractively and comfortably serviced with good linen on the beds and well serviced. The DSTV package was pathetic and...
