Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The place is a large resort with golf, tennis, etc and various apartments. My review applies only to the hotel. The resort obviously caters to wealthy visitors to the Kruger Park. I found the hotel replete with a beautifully manicured golf course and very high-end cabins as well as the hotel itself to be disappointing. It is probably the only one available for tours, and it is professionally run, and is satisfactory for lodging. But we had been staying at hotels characterized by happy, always smiling and very helpful staffs, but in the two days I never saw single staff person smile, nor for that matter, the wealthy guests. Many seemed dour and unhappy. The staff almost seemed proud of the fact that they have no ATM machine (the town is too far to walk for one). I suspect that this is a management issue. Our rooms were adequate but nothing memorable. Our group of 9 was unanimous in our disappointment, and everybody commented that the food here was by far the worst of the trip, overcooked and tasteless.

The timeshare bungalows are in excellent condition after the upgrade. Golf course is good and the resort entertainment is great. Tennis, golf, pedal, lawn bowls. Close to Kruger Park with easy access. Game drives available, if you're that way inclined

Sabi river is part of the Sun group, which says it all. Excellent accommodation with onsite restaurant, spa, golf course, bowling and tennis and swimming pools. Also kids entertainment and show during the holidays. Friendly and efficient service. Close to the Kruger Park. Great views of the hippocampus and crocodiles from most chalets.

Good comfortable option pretty close to Kruger gates. Accommodation was tidy, good area for braaing and enjoying time after being in the car all day. Seeing the hippos leaving their dam each sunset was special. We didnt hear about this cool experience and just stumbled upon it so front desk should be trained to mention this at check in. Small shop with limited products (ice cream, souvenirs etc) so best do food shop in town Suprisingly, didn't have a gym which was a shame for a big property like this.

How it is possible that this hotel is a supposed 4 star facility is beyond belief. From our arrival to our departure an absolute negative experience from our room not being serviced notwithstanding various requests to supper services not starting until 20 minutes later than supposed 6pm. We communicated the negative aspects to management that elected to ignore any issues and us as guests and early check out was done - zero accountability nor any attitude to make amends . If possible consider other options in the area.

Beautiful resort with hippos to view in a private dam. Rooms are of a high standard, and the staff are friendly and welcoming. It’s a short drive to Numbi Gate for access to the Kruger Park. There is a 9 hole golf course, bowls lawn and tennis courts.

I returned to Sabie river sun after 30 years since buying my timeshare this was the first resort I stayed a week way back. Southern Sun establishments and especially the golfing estates are pristine and well managed even though they are the grande dames of the hospitality industry. Old furnishings are cherished and revamped with the new additions of comfort as the years have passed. Keeping the theme and keeping up with the times is something others can learn from the southern Sun brand. The chalet I stayed in 30 years ago was still as comfortable as it was back then. This establishment knows travellers and their needs. Of the hundreds of reviews i have given I maintain 2 or 3 things a traveller really needs, a good clean comfortable bed, running water and a clean shower and toilet and a neat surroundings...all boxes ticked here for sure as always. The grounds and golfing....par excellence. My brother played a few rounds of golf and this estate is so beautiful....and we'll manicured lawns and fairways. Housekeeping, amenities and super super plus...lights were on 24/7 thank you Sabi river sun for keeping us warm and lit up to enjoy our long long card nights

We are regular visitors to this beautiful resort. As timeshare owners we stay in the timeshare chalets on Hippo Lane. We purchased timeshare here a number of years ago after visiting from the UK. (You don’t have to own timeshare to stay here). Imagine waking up to the sound and view of hippos from your veranda! It’s peaceful, surrounded by nature and the staff are extremely polite and friendly. There are small pools dotted around the resort to accommodate the chalets and a large pool in the main hotel area, which again has beautiful views. The food is fantastic, in the main restaurant and the sports bar. The resort is located on a stunning golf course, there are tennis courts and a fabulous entertainment team offering a variety of activities. The resort is a short distance from the Phabeni Kruger Gate, where you can self drive or take one of many safari tours. Hazyview is a lovely town with everything you need, shops, food, activities. Get yourself to Perrys Bridge Trading Post (located just down the road from the resort), where you can buy tickets for tons of experiences as well as shopping and eating! I can’t recommend this enough, we have been lucky enough to bring friends and family with us over the years and everybody falls in love.

Overall stay was okay. Good location for entry into Kruger National Park. Found it to be under-staffed with waiters making drinks, serving and processing orders which means an order takes forever. Arranged beforehand via email and then again in person at the hotel on multiple confirmations for 2 birthday cakes - and they could only produce 1 cake.

The chalet was perfect, neat and tidy, well looked after while we were there the ladies cleaned it well and we always had clean fresh towels. The entertainment was great and staff were incredibly friendly. The Hippos never disappointed and the weather was perfect. We are definitely headed there again soon.
