    Hi- we are heading down to AKV in early August before driving to Hilton Head. I was able to get a SV view studio at Jambo but would love to try the pool at Kidani. Can we do this? Thanks!:)

    Absolutely! If you are staying on points, your keycard from Jambo will allow you into the Kidani pool area.

    I thought the pool was open to all guests of AKL not just those staying on points. Is this not correct?:confused3

    I actually thought it was the other way around and that only Kidani guests had access to the pool area at Kidani.

    Stay at Kidani access Kidani and Jambo house, stay at Jambo only access to Jambo.

    Would really like to know if dianeschlicht is right. popcorn::

    We had no problem accessing the Kidani pool while staying at Jambo earlier this month. -- Suzanne

    Actually, I really don't have any doubt that Jambo guests can use Kidani pool whether they are cash paying or on point stays. I had several CM's ask me if we had been over to the Kidani pool and these were casual meetings where they would not have had any idea if we were DVC or not. And our Jambo key card accessed the pool area.

    My understanding is that it is one resort and all amenities at both locations are available to any guests staying at in either section. And it is non-dependent on how you pay.

    The only DVC I've heard questions about pool use not being available to the whole "resort" is at BLT/Contemporary.

    DVC guest services said you can definately use the Kidani pool if staying at Jambo....Nice feature..In my opinion, more access to restaurant selections right now staying at Jambo..Nice that you can use Jambo or Kidani..Not an issue for us as we rent a car anyway if we don't feel like walking.....:goodvibes:goodvibes:goodvibes
