In 2006 we booked a regular room and were upgraded at check in to pool view, but not savannah view. We heard no noise from the pool at all unless we went out on the balcony. Room wise, I would think they are about the same unless you get a suite. We had a king room.

I'll see if I can post pictures.

Wish I could go back - but financially we can't afford it right now. Really missing my happy place.

We are booked in a standard room at AKL in November. We wanted to stay there but not pay the extra money for the view.

If you can swing the extra money for a Savannah view, it is worth the extra expense, IMO. These are pictures from our balcony.
