8/10 Very good

Enjoyable stay
We enjoyed our stay. Our room was a thatched-roof chalet overlooking the river. It was quite comfortable. The beds were good. The staff at reception and in the restaurant were all wonderful. We enjoyed the sundowner river cruise. There were two things we were not happy with. One was that some dinners were predetermined 4-course meals for a fixed price. The food was good, but our preference is to order from a menu. One night they had a buffet, and that was good and gave us options. The other problem was that we could not drink the tap water. It would be nice if they had a water station with a filter from which we could fill our reusable water bottles instead of having to buy water.

Relaxing place for a short stay.
It is a lovely location with great views over the river to Angola. Staff are friendly and helpful. As a business traveler it would be good to have dinner choice as the fixed menu repeats every few days but as a tourist staying a couple of days it would be fine. Road to the hotel is poor but worth the trip.

Nice place on the river
My wife and I spent an overnight on our way to Victoria falls. The resort is about 2 km off the paved road. Several turns with inadequate signage for direction. Very sandy road which is questionable for light weight cars, even in dry season. Guest rooms are individual huts and very nice. Well landscaped ground. Nice views of the river. The river in this area is a bit too developed for viewing wildlife. We saw none. We took the evening houseboat cruise which was a nice boat ride but no wildlife other than one monkey. We ate at the dinner buffet which was good. Complimentary breakfast was good with many choices. Staff were friendly. Good place to stay along the river but not good for viewing wildlife.

Best river front experience in Namibia
We loved everything abou this place. Rolinda, Paulos,Matheus, Simon,Emmah are the best hosts ever. They made us feel really well taken care of and the morning coffe on the patio is a real spoil. Great food and ambience, clean rooms, fast and easy check in and out- perfect!
