Loved the rooms, the food was great, the beach was nice, and the grounds were beautiful. Everyone was so friendly, but laid back, too. The only thing which wasn't perfect was the baboons stealing our food during meals.

But of all the holiday destinations we have been to, we had the best experience so far at the Baobab. The service was superb, the food amazing and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend anyone looking for a... More

Spent four nights at Baobab and LOVE the gorgeous rooms and beach! The all - inclusive resort is now one of my favorites. Food is fantastic with lots of options at every meal! The rooms are clean and staff is very friendly. Pools are beautiful but watch out for the monkeys! Only complaint is the constant attention on the beach... More

I loved this place! My husband and I with our 4 children came in April for a 2 week holiday. The hotel was well equipped, clean, located right by the beach with outstanding sea views. Food was really good for all inclusive.. However I think the best feature was the outstanding management, staff and entertainment team that work there. The... More

This is a lovely hotel, with good rooms, good food, lovely pools, and a beautiful setting. The owner seems to genuinely care as well. The only problem is the beach, which is intrinsically amazing but is badly let down by the 'beach boys', which bother all the tourists trying to walk along the beach, ruinning its vibe. I therefore can't... More

We spent a week in the miradadi section of the Resort which was ideal as it's the quiet part of the hotel and very relaxed however the option to go to other parts of the hotel and enjoy the activities is open to all guests and gives you the opportunity to party if that's what you fancy. The food was... More
