Our Visit To Palm River Hotel In Victoria Falls
After checking in we were ushered to our room. We had the deluxe room; which is ensuite and has both an air conditioner and fans. The bathroom had a sleek modern design with exquisite wall tiles. It has a double basin, a shower and toilet, and no bathtub. We enjoyed beautiful views from our private verandah. As you look out one can see a number of big trees on the property, there were some warthogs grazing on the hotel green with the river as a beautiful backdrop. There is a lovely pool which just draws you in. It’s an infinity pool flowing over a bridge into another large pool. In the hottest part of the day, we went for a swim and afterward relaxed on the loungers.
Meals at the hotel were memorable as the food was good and the service efficient and friendly. We sampled both Room Service and the sit-down menu in the hotel dining room. There is also an option to enjoy food and drinks outdoors. The waiters were friendly and attentive at all times. Food presentation made it even more appetizing. Breakfast was a continental spread, with lots of fruit, yogurt, cereals, muffins, and other mouth-watering pastries. For Lunch, we had a well-presented but far from ordinary hamburger, and chips.
For Dinner, we ate Tenderloin steak, served with potatoes and vegetables. All in all, our stay was too short and we did not manage to enjoy any of the leisure activities offered by the hotel. However, we were informed that guests can sign up for afternoon riverside tea or a river cruise. If for any reason you cannot decide what you would like to do, there is an activities desk where first-timers can get more information.
