Visited with my family in June of 2014 for one night after visiting Lake Manyara, and the night before visiting Ngorongoro. The perfect stopover between the two parks, and we wished we could have stayed much longer! It was so lovely, set in a stunning location, in coffee plantations in a beautiful, lush, green valley! The staff are quite wonderful... More

The hotel in itself is nice and the view is good. Unfortunately does the staff (except for the waiters in the restaurant/bar) not have a clue of what they are doing. The rooms are very cold, but there is a service to get the fire place on (if they use dry wood instead of wet wood). When bringing the dirty... More

Our Group stayed here one night before and one night after our safari to the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. The lodge is located right on the edge of the Crater Forest, but not too far from the main road (about 10 min). The grounds are magnificent with lots of trees and flowers and prolific birdlife (they offer bird walks... More

They had complimentary drinks on arrival (with EtOH!) for those that wanted them and the grounds are lush, green and beautiful. Our room was huge, with a fireplace, great rugs, chairs and a gorgeous bathroom. There was even a full sized tub, and I took a bubble bath! The meals here were the best of our trip, and we wished...

We stayed here for two nights after Lake Manyara National Park and before a cultural experience day in Karatu. This was our favorite hotel of the entire trip - the grounds were beautiful and well-kept, the rooms were large and well-decorated, and the staff were friendly and provided great service. Expect real Maasai warriors to be your porters carrying luggage... More

We stayed here for one night before arriving to NgoroNgoro National Park. The room are in high quality conditions, the food is very tasty and special, the view and atmosphere are relaxing. The lodge is relatively close to the national park. I am recommending on this lodge.

Endoro is a beautiful lodge, well located in Karatu and within very close proximity to the Elephant Caves walk. Easy access to Ngorongoro Crater and Masai village visits. The room was clean and comfortable and the service is stellar! I was traveling on my own and was made to feel very welcome, safe and comfortable here. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Endoro lodge as part of our tour with Maasai Wanderings. The place was in the midst of nature and was so nice to take in. They are also constructing a pool which i wished had been finished. The hotel was really beautiful. The rooms were huge and had a beautiful tub in the bathroom which i relaxed... More

Beautiful location and lovely rooms with fireplace and outside veranda and shower. Service OK and food average. About half an hour from Ngorogoro gate and1.5 hours from crater bottom. Nice place to stay but overpriced
