The tents were not really tents they were exquisite inside. Clean, roomy and modern. The tent has a single and a double bed, a sitting area, a desk/writing area, a large bathroom area with a vanity, 2 sinks, a shower stall and a toilet room.
I had tent 25 and it was very close to the restaurant, which was a huge circular room with a look out tower that was 4 stories high... excellent views of Mt. Kili, the park and the lodge property.
They had a great pool that was out of the way. It had the deep section partitioned off so you did not have to worry about little kids accidentally going in too deep.
The bar area was huge and had tons of seating and a TV in the corner that was mostly on the news or animal planet channels.
They had 1 Maasai employee in particular that would just sit and talk with you so he could practice his English. In exchange he gave a non-commercial and 'real' opinion on his Tribe and the affects of tourism. He was working in the hotel as he was injured by a lion while guarding his families cattle. He quickly showed the scars and bite marks left by the lion (which he killed btw).
One of my travel mates got a bad case of the stomach bug and ended up spending the day in bed... someone from the lodge checked on her every hour. They brought her soup, ginger ale, tea and crackers. They made sure she was comfortable and offered to get her a doctor (which she declined).
I loved this property.
