Traveled with family
Feel for the price should have daily housekeeping. Had to ask for clean towels and no bed service. Ridiculous to still blame covid for lack of services but still charge a hefty price for room. Also easier to just drive than take the multiple shuttles etc to get anywhere from this location.

Disliked: Cleanliness
The hotel is on a “light cleaning” schedule- our bathroom was cleaned only twice during our 5 day visit. The floors had not been cleaned at all and the bed sheets were not laundered the whole time. Never did we experience seeing the animals- there were two large birds on a tree limb outside our balcony! Overall, Not worth the money.

2/5 Poor

Liked the savannah view. Disliked the fact that I didn't receive a 1 king bed. Instead, I received 2 queen bed without comfortable chairs, at the cost of a 1 king with a savannah view. I feel Expedia ripped me off.
