"Very nice hotel right on the Zambezi river bank" Hotel Mercure A'Zambezi Victoria Falls Tip by do9an

Hotel Mercure A'Zambezi Victoria Falls, Victoria Falls: 773 reviews and 0 photos

This hotel is located right along the Zambezi river, with a nice natural architecture. Staff is very attentive, and careful, although one might say that they still lack experience. You can watch young monkeys playing in the garden, while you sip your drink next to pool (although I doubt if this was regularly cleaned). As in anywhere else in Zimbabwe, the hotel works on cash-only basis. Simple things like water, or postcards are very expensive in this hotel, which annoyed us a little bit. We made our booking on breakfast-dinner basis, but I would recommend including lunch in your package unless you want to pay 30 dollars for a mediocre lunch, or 2 dollars per small water at the hotel. There is an activities centre in the hotel which was quite helpful (although due to high water levels many activities were not operating). Food was reasonable, but certainly not a major selling point. Also there were some local dance shows during the dinner which improved the ambience. Hotel also offered free shuttle bus to the Victoria Falls town, and the national park.
