Very Good8.0
We were only there for one night and we had a great time. Our room overlooked a parking lot. The balcony felt like we were sitting in a cave. If you can afford the upgrade to the safari side, it’s much better. This place is $$$ pricey. Be prepared. They even chard parking now -$23 /day. Seems a bit like robbery but that’s just me. This is more a upscale hotel. Personally I enjoy the value hotels because we barely see the room we’re always on the move. The room was a good size, the beds were super comfy. Plenty of towels and really nice soap/lotion/conditioner was provided. I’d stay there again but only during off season and at a sale price. The bar doesn’t open until late afternoon, the food in the cafeteria style restaurant is good.

Good6.0
Not worth the price they charge
I just wrote a long explanation of our experience and for some reason the app crashed and deleted everything. Bottom line: Rooms are small and outdated Bathrooms are the same as a 2-3 Star hotel just with many more toiletries Pool was moldy, thank god it’s now being renovated Food was greasy unhealthy just like you’d find in a 2 or 3 Star hotel. Conclusion don’t stay here for more than $150/night. Not worth it. The lobby is beautiful and the Savannah view from the room with all the animals was also nice. Other than that it’s just an expensive 3 Star hotel.
