"Little like a holiday camp"

2 nights Arrived 15 Aug 2010
"This place was like staying in your typical family holiday camp although for the victoria falls you are limited for accomadation I guess, somehow they rate this place as 4 star??

They refused to serve the 2 children with breakfast unless we paid for them $8 each although I thought we had paid for B&B the restaurant service was the worst I have experienced, we had to ask for cups, then coffee, juice, sugar the lot, certainly not 4*

The beds were so small it seemed like 4 of us had 2 single beds between us. Having said that our evening meals just off complex at squires was lovely although expensive" See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Brilliant location"

2 nights Arrived 10 Aug 2010
"The proximity to the Falls makes this an excellent spot to stay - getting up early and being the only people by the falls at one point was fabulous.

The hotel is a little sterile but comfortable.

Breakfasts were good but evening eating a little limited in options. Very pleasant to relax by the pool." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Zambezi Sun review"

2 nights Arrived 1 Aug 2010
"For a short stay, just to visit the Victoria Falls, the hotel had a superb location – on a short walking distance from the Falls. The hotel is big, comfortable, though would not have been our first choice for a longer stay. For this occasion however, it was perfect. Staff is very friendly.

The helicopter flight over the falls was worth every penny!

Transfers from/to airport were efficient and well in time." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Zambezi Sun review"

2 nights Arrived 31 Jul 2010
"Excellent location literally five minutes walk from the falls. Staff friendly and service good. Room fine and we liked the pool and bar area.

Our only dislike was that there was only the good but expensive three course buffet for evening meal apart from room service; we would have liked something between the two." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
