I was really surprised to see that some people rated Plantation Lodge as average, when in fact, it's absolutely beautiful! We stayed in Plantation Lodge to do game drives in Tarangire National Park and in Ngorogoro Crater. I was pleasantly surprised when arriving, as the photos don't really do the place justice. I travelled with my husband and mom, and we paid to stay in one room, but when we got there, I guess it wasn't fully booked, because we were given what was called "The Farmhouse" which was two large rooms with bathrooms, plus a large common area. It was roomy and gorgeous. The grounds are lovely and just the whole look and feel of the place is beautiful. The food and service was really good and we were made to feel welcome by everyone. The bar area has a window into the wine cellar and when I commented how nice it was, I was told I could go down and see it, so the bartender gave me a quick tour -really cool. It was hard to believe that there is such a beautiful gem and such lovely greenery in the midst of the rest of the area, which is very dry and dusty. My only regret is that I didn't have time to use the pool! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
