This is a great first stop if you are arriving in Arusha like we did, jet lagged and at night. The bungalows are really spacious and comfortable and the staff is incredibly welcoming. The food is very good too - served in the garden under umbrellas.
We were travelling with 3 kids (6, 9 & 11) and it was nice to have a swing set to play on, a nice pool tucked away, and room to run around after all that travelling. I would definitely reccomend this lodge as a first stop on the Northern circuit, especially if you will be staying in chain hotels for the rest of your stay.
The only minor negative comment I have is that you can hear the main road at night - maybe it was just me and being in a new place with new sounds...
Do visit the Cultural Heritage Ctr before you leave Arusha too.
My unsolicited advice: If you are traveling all the way to Tanzania, don't miss going to Zanzibar and staying at Chumbe island! Also Akorn Destination Mgt. (tour company to dignitaries and the stars) is the BEST - if you are considering touring Tanzania and want a worry free and carefree trip, contact them!
