We stayed for one night in a Savanna View room. There were two queen beds, TV, bathroom, table and chairs, and a closet. The balcony had two chairs and a small table. We were located a 3-4 minute walk from the lobby in a secluded corner with only one other room, so it was nice and quiet - although if we have to walk for 3-4 minutes we like to see a little more
, but the animal viewing stations along the way helped keep us occupied!!
We arrived to our room late in the day (early evening), and were able to catch a few grazing animals (giraffes in particular). The next morning we didn't see too many animals, but we were busy packing. We had expected to see more animals, that said it's unfair for us to review this aspect considering we were there for only one night, not even 24 hours!
We dined at Boma and were VERY impressed with both the food and the service!! The staff were very helpful and very magical, it was Disney service at it's best!! The food was delicious and we tried a little bit of everything. It was nice to also have the option of traditional American fare, and the traditional African food!! We would eat here again even if we weren't staying here!
We visited the pool here and were quite impressed, it was a nice sized pool, but didn't feel it was the most incredible. That said we didn't have the time to really enjoy it (just like the animals) so we aren't good judges of this amenity.
One thing we really enjoyed were some of the activities they had in the evening. There were lectures and drummers. There was also a nice area located outside the lobby with a fire pit and comfy lounge chairs.
We would stay here again, after trying out other Deluxe Resorts. We would book the Savanna View room again, even though we didnt have too much time to enjoy it. If you know you'll be in your room during animal peak times, its a great thing. If not, you may want to save the money and view the animals from the various places around the resort. Overall, an excellent stay!
