Stats

Check In

Service was excellent, with a special welcome from the manager due to my being a Marriott Rewards Gold member. 

Room

The room had all amenities one would hope for, including mosquito nets and insect repellent due to the climate in the area. There was a fruit basket as a welcome gift. 

Service

Service was extremely personal and friendly. We were left wanting for nothing. Given that it was low season for visiting Victoria Falls and during the week, I think there were nearly as many people working as guests. Nevertheless, I was particularly impressed by the service.

Dining

Food was great and reasonably priced. We had lunch and dinner each once at the restaurant, as well as drinks at the bar by the pool and breakfast both days. The breakfast was included free with our room booking. Enjoyed the food options. The Halloumi cheese was a favorite!

Location

Convenient for visiting Victoria Falls.

Overall

Excellent hotel and a particular bargain for anyone with some Marriott points. I used just 15,000 points for 2 nights stay including free breakfast and internet. Considering the rate was around $190/night (in line with other similar hotels in the area), that was a steal. Very comfortable. I would definitely return. We also booked travel activities on-site - a visit to the Devil's Pool, a helicopter ride and a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. A recommended area restaurant is the Zambezi Cafe, and there is a cool market in the town of Livingstone for souvenirs.
