"The only thing we really liked about this was its perched location on the rim, for the sunset view (and the road up). We enjoyed the sunset with a drink. And they gave us a welcome fruit platter and card to congratulate us on our wedding. But we just didn't like how big "resort" like it was, so many rooms/guests were a shock after having been the only guests/with only 4 others at Tarangire (and knowing they only have about 10 huts anyway). The service varied between being too much in your face (barging into the room to do a turn down service at 6:30pm, when I'm in the bathroom get freshened up and just want to be left alone after a long day) and even asking for tips (just for bringing a drink), to being very poor (forgetting to ask us what room number we were, to sign for drinks before we got up). The food and drink came in a vast choice (soy milk! gluten-free! Things that we hadn't considered/seen since leaving the UK), but were poor because it was in vast buffet style, so the hot food is practically cold, and I saw a cockroach in the salad bar. They also failed to properly deliver a message from our guide to us, regarding the change in our flight time (and therefore departure time the next day), so that our guide had to come and track us down himself. We were sad we couldn't hear the bush, being in a proper hotel room. And apart from some African print in the curtains, it was a fairly bland hotel room. Yes, it had a wonderful view, but we just wanted to get back under canvas, where we could hear the bush and get away from people. "
