The setting was beautiful, the staff was great, we loved our rooms and the food and bar were excellent. The room were spacious and well-appointed with large bathrooms. We especially enjoyed watching the monkeys in the morning and early evenings.

Being a resident of Arusha, and needing to "get away" from time to time, I find the Rivertrees restaurant to be a relaxing as we as delicious place for lunch. Have only stuck to the pizza....because it's just too good to pass up! Unfortunately the "walks" advertised are only a village visit (being an agronomist, this is part and parcel... More

Our first and last night were spent here. The rooms are comfortable with lovely bathrooms. The restaurant serves delicious meals. The grounds are lush with tall shade tress often full of monkeys

We had a delicious lunch here. Although the pizzas were delicious the green salad was the pick - with roasted vegetables & a caramelised onion relish. Will just order this next time. The staff let us have a swim and it was most refreshing.

Arrived late after a very long flight. We were welcomed with warm towels and cool juice while we were checked in. The rooms were like something out of the movies, complete with netting over the very comfortable beds. They were scrupulously clean. Wake up was not with the shrill ring of a telephone ( there were none in the room)... More

Located between JRO and Arusha, Rivertrees is an excellent place to spend the night either when you arrive in TZ or before you depart. It's quiet, clean, and relaxing. Probably an excellent place for business conferences/meetings, too.

Came in a day early for my safari so I had two nights here. The food's pretty good, although I found it a limited menu. Beware though, they say breakfast is available from 6:30am and after flying from the US you are probably up then. What they mean is the the staff arrive around 6:30am to start preparing. Also, when... More

We arrived late in the afternoon. Seemed isolated but we were only there for 1 night. Room was just ok but the bathroom and shower were very good. A chair in the room would have been nice. Could only sit on the bed. An outside table and chairs was in a spot guaranteed to be swarming with mosquitoes. The gardens... More

We arrived at 10pm after traveling for 24 hours from the USA. They kept the kitchen open for us to have dinner. The cottage was quiet & clean. The breakfast buffet was plentiful. The grounds were pretty with monkeys swinging along the trees. Wish we could have stayed longer but time for our safari adventure.

Thank Sherre M
