First when we arrived late it was like a struggle for them to come and greet us. We had asked for a birthday cake and a bottle of champagne to celebrate my birthday. Well, because we arrived at 8 pm they said they gave the cake to the other guest for dessert. Champagne? Nothing. Dinner was in small pots with a candle keeping it warm ( family style). The dinner was dry and not much taste. It was so cold! They had an electric blanket on 1 side of the bed, the gas heater was turned off sometime in the night and we woke up very cold. Breakfast was the same as dinner. I was glad our agency only booked us 1 night.

Dear Osteen, Thank you for sharing this review. It is disappointing to hear that we did not meet your expectations if at all you visited Escarpment Luxury Lodge. We wish to clarify that we don't receive clients at the Lodge past 6pm.But as per this review you arrived at 8pm.Secondly,we offer plate service for meals and not pots as mentioned. We also don't have electric blanket on one side or either sides of the beds. And lastly as per the review, the don't have either electrical or even gas heaters at the entire Lodge. We at Escarpment Luxury Lodge remain committed in ensuring that all our guests’ expectations are met and exceeded on the promise that has always been demonstrated by our friendly and helpful staff. We look forward hosting you in the near future to confirm the services and standards of Escarpment Luxury Lodge In Manyara, Tanazania. Regards, Harrison Maina General Manager.

We stayed here for two nights on our return of the so far excellent Tanzanian tour. We were warmly received by the lodge staff with traditional welcome. This is great property, spacious rooms, modern amenities, feel of wilderness ,nice views of Lake Manyara and the icing on the cake was an excellent hospitality of the lodge staff and most importantly Mr. Harrison, the general manager who paid special attention to all our needs. We would definitely recommend anybody visiting Lake Manyara or even for those who just want to relax and enjoy to stay at Escarpment Luxury Lodge.

We spent 2 nights here in April. Although our girls were given a room quite far away from us they felt perfectly safe and happy. The staff were eager to please and service was great! The lodge was full and very efficiently run. The rooms were lovely and beautifully appointed but they needed a good clean on the walls and the rugs needed to be beaten out. We had a lovely view of Lake Manyara from ours. The food was excellent and the chef really made an amazing effort to please us! He surprised us on the last night with delicious Malai Kofta that had us licking our fingers!
