“nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Nothing special to recommend this place. At the same time that may be why I should. Upon arrival our ac. did not work. Staff had us in a different room inside 30 min. Only pool that was not an adventure to get in during our Africa trip. Enough shade near pool, had to ask for towels. Restaurant meals good. Bar very good. 2 computers in a small room worked well. Staff while friendly enough also seemed rather distant. rooms clean, missed giving us drinking water once. If I were to go back I;d check the competition first, but would be happy to go back again

We were very disappointed with the "free" wifi which was intermittent, at best. The food was just OK. Although there were some folks swimming in the pool, it was coated with dead bugs and not very inviting.

This was a great hotel in the middle of Victoria Falls. The rooms were spread out in several motel like buildings with paths leading back to a nice pool area, bar, and dining area. lThere were two bars, one for smoking and one for non-smoking. The dining area was under cover but outside which was pleasant. The food was good and the breakfast very adequate.

What a lovely hotel - fresh and airy in the summer heat. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The large pool was a wonderful place to wait out the heat of the day, especially when sipping an ice cold cocktail, and the shade netting over the loungers makes relaxing here very comfortable. The food was decent - nothing fancy, but tasty and satisfying. The chocolate mousse was heavenly and the homemade lemonade offered on arrival was so good we ordered it at almost every meal. The Wi-Fi worked well. Although there is a desk in the room, with a multitude of plug points, it's primary function is not for work. I did manage to put in about an hour on the laptop before my back started taking strain from the stool I was sitting on. But then, the hotel is a self-confessed leisure establishment, so I can't really fault this as a shortcoming. There are computer stations in the Dot Com room next to reception if you need to do any serious work. The only thing I would have liked is a mini fridge in the room to keep drinks cold, but otherwise I really enjoyed my stay. If I ever find myself in Vic Falls again, I'll definitely be staying here.

I have travelled across the various continents but no one can match the great service standards. It's in DNA of their staff and not easy to replicate. This is one place where you would like to go back again and again and yet again.

Room Tip: good and nice

Everyone was very very friendly and kind, but it is kind of a walk to the city centre. There is a free shuttle offered with limited times (you can pay if you would like it at a different time). Outside of the visit to Victoria Falls there was not much to do, we stayed 2 nights and could have easily just stayed one night. The rooms were comfortable and good for sleeping, we didn't have any neighbors so couldn't tell you how the walls were. Rooms 9-16 (I think, we were in #16) had a nice view of the pool.

The Cresta Sprayview Hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe is a clean comfortable hotel, our tour took us there for a 3 night stay. The meals were so so, the rooms were spacious and clean, though the hotel layout was spread out, more like a motel. The lunches and dinners were mediocre, breakfast were the best of their meals, though the omelette maker did not grasp the concept. The pool was clean and too cool for our taste. I guess its location and affordability were its more salient features. The staff was courteous and the wifi worked only in the lobby and restaurant areas.

Room Tip: The hotel is divided into three building complexes, so the rooms are prefixed by 1, 2 & 3, the r...
