Lots of mosquitos and gaps in all doors and windows...the service is local, not tourism quality. Property is decent but not worth the cost. Over $120/night. No gym. Breakfast only good meal. Pool is ok and the outdoor property decent. Coffee was not good.

ROOM: The room was spacious and bathroom was clean and nice. One can tell this was once build and ran really well. What went wrong guys?!!! The curtains were hanging haphazardly off the rail, dirt sand-like particles on the sheets (maybe this falls off from the thatch roof?), the duvet bedding was lumpy and the mosquito net was dirty/dusty/just a...

I will say the property is beautiful and the rooms quite comfortable but as someone who expects to SLEEP when I stay at a hotel and expects actual service at a place purported to be 4 stars, I was more than a bit disappointed. At 22:00 (10:00 pm) the loudest music more fitting to a nightclub than a hotel began... More

Never been anywhere like this, truly disgusting. First room had huge gaps all over the room - varying from .5 to 1 inch in size allowing all of the bugs to get in (and all sizes). Immediately complained and we were upgraded to a similar standard room. Holes and gaps in doors and windows allowing things to come in. The... More

As Livingstonian, getting away for a night is always a treat and my recent stay at Chrismar was just that. Staying in the Executive Suite, my colleague and I lived like Queens. This is an excellent room for families and/or a group of friends. Large room, dining area, comfortable couches, bar, king size bed, hot tub, shower, air con, TV!... More

The rooms were clean, bed is comfortable and there is A/C available in each room. The mosquito nets were needed because of the cracks in doors and the space between door and jam and the windows and the ledges. The daily cleaning service was very nice. Also we enjoyed the pool and the swim up bar. Breakfasts were delicious and... More

I recently facilitated a conference for 45 participants at the Chrismar hotel. We had a successful time with accommodation, meals, and conference facilities. Staff: The staff were all extremely friendly and willing to help out at a moment's notice when we had changes to number of guests, rooms, meal preferences, and conferencing requirements. The front office and conferencing managers will... More

Disappointing for the price and 4* rating. Nice looking pool and bar, friendly and accommodating front desk staff, comfortable beds, good a/c and pretty good free internet. But first room was old with cracks in walls, door wouldn't open without a hefty shove, second room smelt. Signature animal print chairs and bed boards along with sliding windows into bathroom make...

We had to wait over a half hour to get our (2) rooms. The place was packed on Christmas! The signature furry "cheetah" chairs, headboards and blanket had me wondering what bugs could be hiding in them. The chandelier about the bed was thick with spider webs. I pulled back the sheets and took pictures of black dots that were... More
