I really liked the hotel with good designed room and bathroom with a pleasant resort area. There is one significant thing to improve : the pressure on the water tube was very low and during my shower even water flow stopped which lasted 10 mins. Also there was no one for massage or information after 6 pm and reception staff... More

Couldn't believe the welcome and friendliness of the staff. This African oasis is indeed peaceful and tranquil and was the best place I could have stayed for location (near to the falls & Livingstone) as well as having all I needed for rest and restoration. There are two pools - one very large one with a sunken bar in it!... More

Far from the urban melees, this place puts you an a condition of total rest especially for those exhausted from a lot of work. This is convenient for visiting the Victoria falls along Zambezi river and nearby animal parks. However, improvements are required especially the air conditioners coz the place is extremely hot. Also, Wi Fi need to be improved... More

remember you are in Zambia, and 4 stars here is not the same as in ie Europe. from outside it does not look inviting, inside is another thing indeed. Have never stayed in a hotel like this, but I guess it is typical african style. Looks a bit tired and windows and doors are quirky indeed. Either you find it... More

Peace surroundings, beautiful swimming pool and friendly and useful staff: Chrismar Hotel is perfect for families. The swimming pool is notably very large and beautiful. The sunken bar is an added value to the lovely swimming pool. The rooms are comfortable and the bathroom very comfortable. However, there is a weakness on food.

My husband needed to do some work in Livingstone for two days and then we were off on holiday. When we arrived at Chrismar we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff members in a lovely reception area and we were taken to our room through a lovely restaurant/pool/bar area but that was about where it ended. The rooms... More

We stayed here for five days and were very happy with the hotel. We were lucky to be upgraded to one of the suites which was really nice. The food was OK, the service was great and the staff were all really lovely happy people who were very helpful. There is a sunken bar surrounded by the lovely swimming pool... More

I misconnected on my flight to Livingstone due to a delay by the airline and I ended up stuck in Lusaka, instead of arriving at Livingstone. I called the hotel at 5 p.m., spoke to desk clerk and told her that I was stuck in Lusaka and would not arrive until the next day. When I arrived the next day,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights from where we did the Mukuni Big Five, very close by, visited Victoria Falls, very close by, and had sundowners at the Royal Livingstone Hotel, again very close by. Didn't ever need to go to Livingstone town. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms could do with a bit of modernisation, weird opening windows into... More
