Very average
Hotel was not up to disneys customers service standards. We paid for "ritz carlton" service but recieved service more comparable to holiday inn express. We will not stay on Disney properties again

A Truly Magical Place to Stay
I cannot say enough excellent things about this resort. We have stayed at many Disney resorts, but this one blew us away! We ended up spending almost 2 full days just enjoying what the resort has to offer from the amazing pools and water slides to the fantastic dining choices. Many of the activities that we took part in were even free such as cookie decorating and cultural experiences. Our studio villa room was very spacious and we absolutely loved the balcony overlooking the savanna where we could view many animals such as giraffes and zebras. The cast members were so kind and attentive, like we have come to expect at Disney, but there were a few that just went above and beyond to make our stay magical. We will definitely be staying here again during future trips to Disney World.

Jambo house stay
Would not stay here again. Resort is dated. Rooms and entire resort for that matter are dimly lit. My wife was consumed by bed bugs our entire stay. Service was ok but definitely not over the top.

Glad we went, but 2 nights plenty of time
Something on our bucket list so we made the 2 night stay to overlook the animals. While it was cool, after about ten minutes, it lost our interest. We paid extra to be in a one bedroom so lots of room and large balcony, and it had both, but a lot of money spent for extra room we didnt use or need. A little dated too, especially the bathroom for that kind of money. Pool super crowded and on the small side. On the positives, the bus to the parks worked great, the BOMA buffet was terrific, loved the carrot ginger soup. The market had plenty of fresh and surprisingly priced appropriate food; we picked up bagels and cream cheese that fed us for both mornings. And the interior atmosphere of the lodge was beautiful. But 2 nights max here, you would be bored more than that, and go for the least expensive room possible. The view from the room isn't even necessary because viewing areas on every floor. But it was cool to look out at midnight and see Zebras walking by...not a site we will soon forget...so worth the visit, once.
