AKL Buses to MK & Question about CL Rooms

Three questions???

1) Where are AKL's Club Level Standard Rooms?

2) Are the AKL Standard Club Level Rooms worth the money? Is the Lounge nice? How is it compared to WL?

3) What is the bus travel time & wait time to and from AKL & MK?

They are located on the 4 th floor and all have a savanna view.

2) Are the AKL Standard Club Level Rooms worth the money? Is the Lounge nice? How is it compared to WL?

The rooms are standard, not any bigger or better than any other standard room. The lounge is lovely and the staff is fantastic. The mimosas are amazing! I have never stayed at WLAN, so I can't compare. Some people do not like that the club level rooms are on the 4th, but the lounge is on the 6th but it has never been a problem for us.

3) What is the bus travel time & wait time to and from AKL & MK?
We have rarely waited more than 15 minutes for a bus. The only longish trip is to MK and is usually around 25-30 minutes.

We really love it here and highly recommend it.

We have never waited long for a bus at AKL. In our experience, it didn't take more than about 5 extra minutes to get to any of the parks from AKL compared to other resorts. The resort is out away from everything, but the buses only go to AKL and Kidani, so there's no sharing with any other resort(s). We've never stayed CL at AKL, but it's on our list and I have read nothing but great reviews about it. We loved WL CL and IMO, AKL CL seems just as amazing from past reviews I have read. One thing that does appeal to me about CL at AKL is that the lounge overlooks the lobby, which is one of the many things I loved about WL CL. With that said, one negative that I can see about AKL CL (and it's just my opinion), is that the CL rooms are not located on the CL floor. Other than that, AKL CL sounds amazing and I'm hoping to try it some day.

AKL's standard CL rooms are on the 4th floor. They are a bit of a hike from the lounge, and when we stayed there, I questioned this, but then I read somewhere that the best recommended viewing area is on the 4th floor, roughly where these rooms are located. So, yes, it's a pain to walk from these rooms to the lounge, but AKL is trying to give its CL guests the best viewing experience.
