standard view vs value view at AKV

Ok maybe this is mentioned somewhere else but I cant find it. What is the difference in the standard vs value view rooms..and where are the standard rooms located at Jambo house? I am coming in March and have booked a studio for standard view. Kind of want to know where I can be expected to be staying and where is a good room to request.

thanks

Jambo standard studios mostly are pool view. There might be a few with a partially obstructed savanna view. No parking lot views. Those are all value villas. Value villas are smaller than the standard or savanna villas. The one bedroom only sleeps four, no sleeper chair.

there is no such thing as a "value view."

"value" refers to the size of the room - they are smaller than other units. view for value rooms may be savanna view, pool view or parking lot view (requests are not allowed).

most of the standard rooms at jambo house are pool view...a few may be obstructed savanna view.

The Values are along the Ostrich and Giraffe Trails. Most of the Standard Views will be along the Zebra Trail facing the Uzima Pool.

Just to clarify, all the Value rooms are in Jambo House? Kidani Village has no Value rooms?

Once again. No VALUE VIEW. They are VALUE VILLAS because they are smaller in size than the standard and savanna view and they are all in Jambo House. They might be parking lot view, pool view or savanna view. You cannot request a view in the Value villas. These were the odd sized villas that resulted when they renovated the fifth floor.

The savanna and standard view villas are the same size, same set up. The value villas are smaller. The one bedroom does not have enough space to put the sleeper chair in the living room. You cannot have a fifth person in the value one bedroom unless the fifth person is under the age of three.

For a standard view, I had 5322 last month and it had a real nice view of the savannah.

I am interested to read this as I am pretty sure I have read several people saying you can request NOT to have a parking lot view. Surely that is still a request Obviously, requests are precisely that, however it is news to me that you are not allowed to make requests (regarding view) when booking a value category room at AKV. Is this a recent rule?

They stopped allowing view requests for value rooms in 2011. Nevertheless, sometimes you can get a request past an MS person who is not up to date on all the rules. Likely the "not parking lot" view request that some may have put in is simply the result of the computer not rejecting that particular request and the MS person not knowing that no value view requests are allowed.

That was in Jambo. As an aside, the butternut squash soup at Mara tells me I have to stay at Jambo to be closer to it

How many standard view studios are at AKV? How many at Jambo and how many at Kadani? They are larger than the value studios? I think I'd want standard view then and I wonder how likely it is to get 3 of them at 7 month window for Xmas time next year?
