It's a resort for families but the loud pop music in the eating and restaurant area not relaxing or pleasant at all. Mosquitos net in room broken and minibar empty. Not a 5* hotel. Better go to Sanctuary group. Views of the river, fantastic.

On one occasion there seemed to be only one waiter; on another there were more waiters, but ours disappeared and it took a while to get the bill. The shower door in...

If you want great hotel in Livingstone with perfect place on Zambezi river - do not think any more. DLSL is perfect for you. Hotel is on Zambezi river bank, with breath taking view. You are near every attraction in Livingston but still far away from noisy town. Staff is great... Most important for me - breakfast is great and...

DLSL & Spa is got a very unique location. I am likely to promote it further as I have done so twice this year. I am a member of Le Club of Europe and Marriott Club. I think your services are excellent but please have options for family tours with self catering facilities to improve local tourism. This is important...

This was a nice luxury lodge right on the banks of the Zambezi River. It had incredible views. We stayed in April when the river was running very high. The view from the infinity pool was excellent. Staff was helpful at arranging trips and transportation. The only complaint i had was that there were a couple pretty steep steps going...
