I guess I prefer an upper floor so that we're not hearing people running around above us, right? Is this room you mentioned pretty much a perfect spot, in your opinion? What exactly should I say in my request? Thanks.
I really liked it! When we stay there next (and all future visit) my request will be 3rd floor (lobby is on 3rd floor and restaurants are on ground level) on giraffe trail near the elevator. That would put you with easy access to the pool, lobby, Mara and the bus stop. And we would definitely get pool view again. We really liked the pool view. To make the request just call. You don't have to fax anymore.

Thank you for the info!

Now 6 months have gone by and it was time to book - and couldn't commit to the Poly - I started thinking and missing AKL.
Maybe it was the puppy dog eyes from my kids and husband, maybe it was the desire to sit by the beautiful oasis of a pool, or the longing for the smell of the lobby, or a sudden need to watch a giraffe eat lunch outside my window. Why would I consider another resort? As they say, if it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

So we are officially *in* for AKL - 5/24-6/1.
....or mebbe it was US telling you to COME TO YOUR SENSES......

I am just so excited that I was able to book our first stay at the AKL!!! Actually, it's not only our first stay at the resort, but our first time even walking into it. I finally convinced the DH yesterday to let me book, and he even let me book an Arusha view room. I told the DH that I didn't mind him sleeping until 10 AM every day on this trip b/c I would be sitting on the balcony drinking coffee, looking at the animals.
