Very nice place to stay if you are visiting Ngorongoro but don't want to stay in the crater for the night. Calm, comfortable, the staff is very kind, well located, delicious food, ... I can only recommend staying at least one night in this beautiful place!

Loved, loved, loved this place! We stayed here three nights total and it was great from the welcome, service, food, pool, drinks, WiFi, and the unique garden/treehouse feel!! Loved our spacious rooms and that the shop supports a great cause. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Nice hotel! Busy and great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Nice buffet. Reasonable alcohol prices. Hot water runs out after 5 minutes, we complained on our first visit but when we came back a few days later - same problem. Towels are stained.

We had a great stay at Eileen's Trees! The location is perfect -- close to Karatu Town but without all the noise of town. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The food was really delicious! And the staff was friendly and welcoming. We look forward to returning!

This place is really special! I stayed here on the first night of my safari and the last night of my safari. The rooms are very spacious and charming. Very clean and the beds are comfy. The grounds are beautiful full of nice plants and trees, it’s like a mini rainforest. All of the staff were very welcoming, kind, and helpful at all times! The food was TOP NOTCH!! Some of the best food I ate in Tanzania. The chef is amazing! Buy a basket or two from the ladies making them onsite. The baskets are beautiful and will be the best deal you can find anywhere.
