Botswana is where the white-hot Kalahari Desert meets the wild Okavango River delta in an explosion of green that shelters and feeds some of the continent's most prolific wildlife. And hidden in the searing sand is one of the world's richest sources of diamonds. Sun International's luxury Hotel, Casino and Conference Center in Botswana is another glittering diamond. The Gaborone Sun located in the capital City of Gaborone, offers world travellers and business people a sophisticated conference center and meeting place with the added advantage of a premium casino. Travellers are drawn by the promise of high adventure; to a place that exposes all who visit the extremes of the African interior. Africa is the most alluring continent on earth and Botswana is the sorcerer. The Gaborone Sun's hotel rooms provide a home-from-home feel where you can relax or catch up quietly on some after hours work. The beautiful rooms in their soft African-hued furnishings offer a serene escape from the bustle of the boardroom or the excitement of the casino. The hotel dates back to the seventies and has been extensively refurbished and refined. Accommodation includes a total of 196 rooms including 1 Standard paraplegic room, 1 luxury paraplegic room, a palatial Presidential Suite, 3 suites, 38 luxury rooms and 152 Executive Rooms. Take a tour of its property and see what they can offer you. No matter if you visit them for business or pleasure, if you stay for a month or just stop over for a night on your way into Botswana, they would love to welcome you home. Hotel also provides free breakfast to its guests.

Review of Gaborone Sun

Definitely not a first world four star, but it is fine. The rooms could really use a good scrub down. The TV and phone in my room didn't work, the shower door repeatedly fell off despite apparently being repaired, the closet door wouldn't close,
and the internet was frequently down. Definitely a general lack of attention to detail. The other bothersome thing that the Manager should really fix is the maids' constant, loud chatter in the hallways. At 7:00am it's as though they are attending a party...in your room.
A few positive things are the sheets, towels and the food, actually, which was quite good! The staff are kind of listless and take a long time to warm up to you.
This city could really use a verifiable and consistent four star hotel.
