    I thought I read that the club rooms were on the 4th floor. Maybe I'm not remembering correctly? Not the DVC rooms, the regular club level rooms.
    I believe you are correct, those staying in non DVC club rooms are reportedly assigned 4th floor rooms overlooking Arusha savanna.
    I believe the PP was referencing the club lounge, which is located on the 6th floor, along with the DVC club level villas.
    You might consider requesting Kudu trail near the elevator to make it easier to get to the 6th floor lounge?
    I’ve not stayed club, but believe the lounge is on that side of Jambo - hopefully someone who’s stayed club level will offer more concrete info..

    I believe I read on here that the only elevators that take you to the Club Lounge are the ones off the lobby. I remember seeing the band reader in those elevators but not the Kudu one.

    I was afraid of that, I’ve never thought to look at the Kudu/Zebra trail elevators - but it makes sense.

    Please forgive me, I did use the search, but with no luck.

    Do the AKL rooms have a Kuerig or a pod coffee pot? I know the CL rooms have the Kuerig, but I cannot see if the rest of the rooms have changed to Kuerig.

    Keurig in refurbished rooms, Pods in non-refurbished. The K-cups are Joffery's coffee and they have liquid coffee mates in the drawer.

    Thank you! We are in a Savannah view room, but all I requested was easy access to the pool. Do you know if all savannah view have been refurbished?

    We were in a Kudu Savanna view 3rd floor refurbished room the last week of Oct.. They were still doing some work on the outside of Zebra Pool View and I don't think they started on the other 2 trails at that time. Hopefully someone that is there now can give you better info.

    Quick story on my current stay. I’m in the middle of a split stay and I checked in yesterday (coming from BRV, with FQ up tomorrow). I booked a Standard King because I didn’t want to splurge on Savanna and wanted to avoid Pool View due to noise. When I received my room number, I saw that I had been upgraded - to Pool View King. Argh. I almost went to the Front Desk immediately, but decided to check out the room first. First frustration? The construction rerouting me from the third floor to the fifth floor and then back down to the third floor. But I had read about the possibility here, so wasn’t surprised. The room itself was beautiful (renovated Zebra Trail, room 3468) and the view of the pool was actually pretty spectacular, especially approaching sunset. I called Bell Services for my luggage transfer and was told that they were running behind and it might take 30 minutes. No biggie. I could wait. But then came the second frustration: 90 minutes passed and still no luggage. Normally, I would have brushed it off as a minor annoyance. On this occasion, however, the thump thump thump baseline from the loud music playing poolside and streaming through the closed balcony door was already driving me slowly insane. I get emotional when I’m frustrated and was getting teary at the memory of my quiet and relaxing room at BRV. All I could think was that I absolutely hated my room and was wishing that I’d never booked AKL in the first place.

    Thankfully though, the story has a happy ending, as sense prevailed and I decided to ask for a room change. The Cast Member was awesome and they were able to move me to a room allllll the way at the end of Kudu Trail. It’s Savanna (according to MDE), but there are only birds and hogs to watch. But it could be a view of a dumpster and it would still be an upgrade because it’s quiet! So quiet! I can’t imagine that the pool is busy (or even open) today due to the cool temperature, but just the thought of possibly listening to the thumping music all day makes me shudder. I’m so happy that they were able to accommodate my request. I even filled out the online room survey to thank the Cast Members by name and received a voice mail from the Resort Manager thanking me for my feedback 10 minutes later! So I’m back to being super happy to stay here.

    The renovated rooms are amazing. The little fridge/coffee nook is fantastic and I wish that every Resort room had one. It’s so nice to have shelves for my groceries.

    Can anyone confirm that bunk beds will still be offered after the refurb is complete? (Apologies if this has already been covered in earlier pages)

    they are doing work still on zebra trail. Signs are up directing guests in some room blocks to use the elevator to go to the fifth floor then over and back down to get to their rooms.
    we’ll go exploring tomorrow to see what else we can find out.

    Does anyone know what coffee pot the DVC studio rooms have? or does that also depend if they have been refurbished?
