We spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon in the Victoria falls hotel. The week before we left we read some reviews on trip advisor giving really bad reviews of the hotel and the country. We were so worried about going to the Vic Falls hotel and Zimbabwe that we tried to change our honeymoon to go to the Zambia side of the falls. But after assurances from the tour operator that everything was safe etc we decided to go to the hotel. So gald we did. The hotel itself is gorgeous. We stayed in the Bokota suite (a complimentary upgrade mainly due to the fact that we had sent the bad reviews we'd read along with our concerns to the tour operator who in turn forwarded them to the hotel) which was fantastic. There some obvious problems with the country at the moment but that didn't stop everyone we dealt with being friendly and helpful. I would definetely recommend the Vic falls hotel and it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. True, you aren't advised to go out walking round the town at night but at no time in Vic falls did I ever feel unsafe.
The hotel itself is expensive for most stuff but the casino complex next door offers a wide variety of resturants and are much more reasonable.
Also the view of the falls from the Zimbabwe side I think is more impressive.
