In june, We spent a week on 3rd floor , giraffe trail. We were directly above Jiko.. I had a lovely view of the stream, pool and trees. It was perfect. lobby level so walk right to the lobby.. 3010.. I posted pictures on the AKL thread

I couldn't justify the SV for a week.. But, I will have one when I go back for one night in 17 days!!

I have a pool view booked for Dec.

I've stayed there with a savannah view and standard view and one got a comp upgrade from standard to savannah.

I don't want to pay the extra for savannah this time so I figured we'd try pool view.

First trip we had Savanna and loved it. Even in pouring rain we could watch the animals. Wasn't close to main hub but that was fine.

Second trip couldn't swing Savanna but worried about Standard so we booked Pool View. I was so disappointed. This was our view from our balcony. And many of the rooms across the way were hanging beach towels on the railings. We could lean out and look to the right and see a spot of pool between the trees but we were also looking at our neighbors. It was close to everything but part of paying the extra is a balcony - and we never used it. Besides the view, it was so loud with folks coming and going to pool, and those eating outside Mara.

So to me all Pool View means is interior resort rooms not looking at a Savanna. Including Roof View rooms.

We have only paid for SV once. We find that there are so many places to view the animals from that we would rather save $$ or be closer to the bus stop/etc than get the SV. I will also say that this is my favorite resort to stay at and we do spend time watching the animals.
