Hopefully most people staying at the Zambezi Sun are doing so to visit the Falls, and not for the accomodation.
The location cannot be beaten, but the accomodation is average. Dark, narrow corridors set the scene for modest rooms - which I would describe as 3-star.
The communal pool / bar/ restaurant area is very nice.
Food is expensive and underwhelming. I was served a hamburger which, after a couple of bites, I discovered contained raw meat.
While not particularly hungry one night, we were told that the ONLY dinner option is a USD40 per person buffet. After spending USD80, a couple sat down at a table next to us and announced that "they only wanted a club sandwich each" - which was duly served to them. I felt ripped off.
My advice - don't go here expecting a lavish stay - just enjoy the Falls.
