I was part of a group of three who stayed here in conjunction to a Kilimanjaro climb and safari. This was the hotel that was selected through the people we were working with, Lens Trekking. It was superb! The front desk was very helpful, polite, and professional. One of the best parts, at least for us, is that our stay,...

The staff and manager great you with a smile and hug. Very friendly and accomdating staff. Basic clean accommodation. Some money of this lodge goes towards a primary school. We stayed there on a layover day. Highly recommend the place. The lodging is basic but very clean. The rooms have Air conditioning.

Ultimate Kilimanjaro uses this hotel to accommodate the climbers and this is the reason for my stay in this hotel. The location is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, though it's only a 10-15 minute drive to Moshi. My room unfortunately didn't had a view of the mountain, but it's possible to go upstairs and see the view of...

We chose to stay here because we liked the fact the hotel supports the school next door. Our room was clean with a mosquito net...

While we didn't stay at the lodge, we stopped here on the way from the airport to our retreat center. We enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch and got to support a great organization. While we were leaving we saw the children at the attached school go to recess and it really warmed our hearts. The food was great, the staff...

We had been in Tanzania for almost 16 days. We climbed Kilimanjaro and took a Safari and we needed to stay one more night in Tanzania before flying home to Seattle. We book at the Stella Maris Lodge. I have to tell you Teddy and her staff are amazing. We arrived late and had a warm greeting with a hug...
