Marriott bought Protea last year and it's a huge victory for Marriott members. I stayed here for 7.5k points a night (the cheapest I've ever seen) which included their extensive breakfast buffet. They brought wine and cheese and fruit when we checked in too. Really a wonderful way to spend those hard-earned points.

we stayed at the Protea on a group visit to the falls. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and catered for all of our differing requirements. The rooms were specious and well maintained, although there was a high level of mosquitos in the room. I suspect this is the norm and a very effective can of spray was provided,...

Basic room and basic facilities. Only one restaurant, pool is really tiny but the Staff was wonderful, always smiling ready to help. Very well located, lots of restaurants around, Staff was helpful in calling a taxi always. Not very far from the Falls or other activities. The activities desk was very pricey, better to book directly.

I booked this hotel for my family, and my wife, after reviewing Trip Advisor, asked why I booked this hotel. So I was a bit nervous that it would be tired and run down. Quite the opposite. The hotel is wonderful. Sure, it's not right on the Zambezi river and has no view of the Falls, but the rooms are...
