The pool was not disgusting, but it wasn't totally clean. Darrell would not take us to see the baby Rhino kill that the lions got, it made him too sad. We did see a lion feeding on a zebra, so it wasn't like we were missing something, though.
Definitely a luxury lodge! This lodge has a max of 14 guests, and while I was there with a friend, there was only one other couple for two nights and 2 couples for the third night. They also said they limit the number of Guest on each drive to 7, so if they have 8 guests, they send out 2 vehicles. They constantly feed you and the food is very good. Darrell, the guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. The steps are challenging but we needed exercise after all the great meals.
