8/10 Very good

The hotel was great & food was delicious. Loved the animals outside our room patio. The only drawbacks were very cheap toilet paper, towels at pool were extremely small and it would have been nice to have some water bottles on our room as a welcome… even if you charged for them. So e of us travel far and get in late and the store on site is closed and super thirsty.

6/10 Good

I was overwhelmed by the abundance and variety of animals we saw throughout our 2 day stay, but was very underwhelmed by the food choices both at the resort - especially at the pool. When I go to a resort and spend the kind of money I spent for my room I expect snacks/lunch by the pool and cocktails served to me. You shouldn't have to dress, pool your kids from the pool (single parent) to walk all the way up to the restaurant to get a grab and go meal. Why isn't food and beverage (at Disney's already exorbitant prices) delivered to your lounge chair? Moreover, when we checked in @ 2pm only one of the several restaurants were even open. We opted to take the Disney Shuttle to Disney Springs for more options. ****Please note that because of the animal's proximity to the Disney fireworks this resort is 15- 20 minutes by Disney bus to MK, Epcot, Disney Springs etc. so prepare accordingly.

Allergy friendly chefs!
I went to have appetizers in the bar and was concerned about cross contamination. The server made arrangements for the allergy chef to come and talk w/me on food prep and was super knowledgeable and understanding. Got a great meal and had no allergy issues. Appreciate their going above and beyond for me.

The closest to Africa
We had a Savannah view room and it was beautiful. Great experience for the kids and adults to see animals out of the balcony!

6/10 Good

The only positive experience we had was with Guest Services when we checked in after that it was horrible. At the gift shop there was no "Hi or thank you" after our purchase it was more like buy and get out type of attitude. In the morning for breakfast the samething no "Good morning or thank you" or acknowledgement that you are there very bad customer service. Then on one of the days we didn't leave the room until later in the afternoon and someone from the hotel came knocking on our door to do a wellness check but she came three times before actually coming in to do a check and by then we were all leaving to go to park. She proceeded to walk through our room but didn't clean it or send someone to come clean it so not sure what the point was of her coming in and just walking through the room. Room wasn't a mess but the one small garbage that was in the room could have been emptied. Hotel is beautiful and aside from the first person who checked us in the other employees we came across need to be trained on customer service or find a different job not customer service based.
