Enjoyed my stay very much, with the staff being extremely attentive and the food very delicious. Rooms were spacious & comfortable with wonderful beds. Gorgeous view from the restaurant of the Oasis below. Could hear monkeys & birds early in the AM. A bit remote, but worth it when they meet you at the door with hot towels. Wish we...

Very nice food, people and the food was good. The beds were very spongy, no back aches for me. I liked Masai outlook of the hotel.

I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2009 whilst on safari at Lake Manyara & Taranguire. It was fabulous! Returned again November 2011, and left feeling very disappointed :( The setting obviously hasnt changed - and this is spectacular! Nature doesnt disappoint! However the rooms have deteriorated - our first room had a non working toilet, and a burnt...

While I read some other reviews and they all have validation. You have to take this place for what it is, but I agree, it could be better managed. Now, we experienced a very nice staff, the rooms were fine, the view was gorgeous, but also we didn't have electricity at all while we were there. It did take a...

Stayed there for 2 weeks. The service was fabulous. The employees were friendly. Some employees went above and beyond to ensure our comfort or happiness. The rustic accommodations were more spacious than expected and safe. The beds were very comfortable. Keep in mind, this location is remote Tanzania. It is a great place to use as a base to explore...

The good: The lodge is situated in a great spot overlooking the rift valley. Beautiful views of the lake and banana plantations - and of course the rift escarpment. Service is good from the staff - especially Lengai (our "butler") who was very interactive and seemed to actually take pleasure in talking with us and telling us about his life...

I was just planning to stay a night or two at E’Unoto to ‘unwind’ and ended up extending my stay for well over a week! This place is truly a gem in the middle of the Maasai boma- yes it’s a little tough to find, yes the road is bumpy, but after you make it here, you won’t want to...
