We had many dinners at the poolside bar and grill during our stay. Very affordable. Pizzas were some of the best I've eaten. However, the service was a bit slow

I went several times to have drinks and watch the sunset over the Zambesi lighting up an amazing Baobob tree and hearing the animals including hippos announce the evening. Only annoyance was the pesky monkeys that came to steal peanuts and the like.

You can’t complain much with such an unbelievable view. We had drinks on the sun deck and dinner in the bar which left a lot to be desired. The hotel is beautiful and the service was great but the food needs a little work.

We have been at the poolside many times. Every time we go there we noticed one thing: variety is going down. If you stay longer than 3 nights you will notice the menu selection on food and drinks is rather scarce. Don't get me wrong...More
