AKL is beautiful, especially the lobby at night. It is a bit out of the way but not a big deal if you don't mind bus rides.

No comparison. ALK is amazing. The pool is amazing, views amazing, atmosphere amazing, rooms bigger. POR, is a moderate and you get what you pay for. If money is no object, i would go for AKL........

This trip funds are little tight so we are staying at POP for 7 Nights starting next Friday.

Have a great trip no matter where you stay..

Well, we have made the switch from PORFQ to AKL! Thanks for all the feedback! We have decided to also go with the savanna view and requested Kudu trail view. We are super excited! Eights days and counting!
