if you are looking for a quite,relaxing and peaceful place to unwind,Baobab is the ideal place. the sea food average,good customer service. i was here though for a second time for a friends wedding reception and it was awesome.a good venue for corporate meetings and weddings too. good location near the Nyali & city mall shopping center.

I spent 4 nights here in October, just after climbing mt kilimanjaro, it was the perfect place to unwind and relax, after an exhausting week up the mountain. The staff were amazing, and so friendly, and there was no end of choice with the food. I would say the only downfall was getting pestered on the beach by the locals,... More

Despite repeated requests we got no sea food/coastal cuisine, at best we were served pond bred tilapia and the Chinese menu isnt good either. The bar selection is very limited. on the up... More

Beautiful beach and ok hotel with quite run down rooms and mediocre food. After the hotels we stayed in on safari the first week, this hotel was a disappointment. However our daily visitors to our balcony of vervet monkeys, colobus monkeys and on the final night a bush baby made our holiday.

Had to write this review even though its a year old after reading all the good reviews. Went here for our Honeymoon after a weeks safari. We were expecting the lodges and tents on Safari to be a bit basic and this hotel to be a lot better. How wrong could we be. Very disappointed with the whole set up.... More
