We have stayed at many (note: almost alI) Disney hotels and this has become one of our favorite hotels. The ambience and setting are unique and beautiful. We have stayed at Jambo house many times, and feared we would feel like this was not as great but we wound up liking it much better. The service was fantastic, from the cast members to the transportation. The pool area was intimate, but the play area for the children was the best of all the Disney properties.
The only negatives were the lack of a counter service in the actual building (without walking or taking the shuttle to Jambo House- which they do offer frequently and the walk is less then 10 mins) and the fact that the hallways could be long for some. I would rather walk a long indoor air-conditioned corridor then walk the outdoor building configurations of some of their other hotels in the heat and rain to get to my room.
All and all this is a unique and intimate resort. You are not in the thick of it like at the Contemporary for instance, but that is what is so magical about it. If you are looking for a vacation where you can enjoy the parks, but yet have some down time and a little escape from all of the craziness then this is for you. Taking an afternoon break from the park, relaxing at the pool and then enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine from your balcony overlooking giraffe and zebra is pretty amazing!
