Superb resort with amazing service. The rooms are huge and overlook the mountain. The staff is just amazing and keen to cater to every need of the guests. We felt really pampered. The property is 5 mins from the Ngorongoro conversation area gate and the drive to inside the cater is about 45 mins. Highly recommended for a couple of... More

This lodge is spectacular!! We were blown away by the view and beauty of the property. It is not a "safari" type lodge with animals roaming, however we were woken up in the middle of the night by elephants trumpeting :) We used this hotel as a mid safari/kili climb break. We had an afternoon where we sampled drinks and... More

We loved our stay at Neptune! We felt so welcome and had excellent service! The lodges are beautiful and huge! The general manager was SO helpful and created an amazing Anniversary Ceremony for our parents 50th celebration! Wouldn't change a thing about this stay or the Lodge! A+

We did not expect the formality of this 5-Star lodge when we pulled up in the driveway. The staff was lined up (a la Downton Abbey) to welcome us to this wonderful lodge. The setting is stunning and each cabin is has a breathtaking view of the valley below. When we arrived midday the property was deserted, so we have... More

This resort is wonderful. The rooms are massive with views, the lodge has wonderful food and service and the staff were so friendly. We enjoyed complementary drinks and played local board games with the bar staff. The crater is unbelievable and mind blowing. So much wildlive in such a concentrated area - do not miss it!

The chef went out of his way to cook something special for us as we are vegetarian. I wish we had stayed longer! I would recommend this Luxury Lodge!!... More

We were unfortunate to stay only one night in this awesome little hotel. The room with a view of a small valley was beautiful, and the pool/restaurant areas were excellent like the service and the food. Management and staff were extremely nice and courteous, great experience.
