Many reviews have already covered the basic aspect of this hotel. I found it to be much more than I expected: very friendly and helpful staff, awesome bar in the middle of the pool, good food (including breakfast), clean and spacious rooms, hot water with good pressure. The front desk was helpful when trying to book day tours and were... More

The hotel is aesthetically pleasing, but the service would be ok one moment, and horrible the next. Chrismar flatters to deceive. The rooms are awesome. The pool area is great. A bit pricey considering the service

The staff was outstanding! However who whoever owns this place probably has thrown their hands up. This place needs upgrading. While the Junior Suite is spacious, the furniture and appliances are outdated. There was only one tv for a Suite that has a living room and that TV was small and contained very few channels. Windows and Doors had visible... More

Good food. Good service. Smiles all around. I really don't want to leave, but when I do, I know I'll be back. You got to stop by and book yourself a room. The pool, the bar, in the middle of the pool!!!!! The other pool. The food!!!! I like this place. Oh, and the breakfast is of the hook!!!

Chrismar Livingstone has seen better days. It is however a clean and safe place to stay while you are in Livingstone which is huge positive. It is not, by any means a dump, but there are a number of things that you will notice. Positives include good location, clean rooms, friendly staff, price, reliable air-conditioning. Negatives include inside the room... More

Niff the bar tender was really nice. The food took forever. We asked for t-bone medium done and it was so well done. The roof of the bar is leaking. Nonetheless we had a nice time and made sure we had fun. I've a feeling someone is sleeping on the job or busy somewhere else.

Packing up to get back to Lusaka after a fabulous three days stay in Chrismar Livingstone. Honestly I'm reluctant to leave. Every nagging visitor may find shortcomings in the majority of hotels and lodges but normally minor imperfections are easily overshadowed by endless string of undeniable merits. Perhaps the only small issue I noticed here was insufficient water pressure in... More

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
