My husband picked this resort for our honeymoon as he knew I had always wanted to do safari. Fantastic resort, great food and the staff were amazing. They made our time feel very special and the room was fantastic and spotless. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

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

It might be due to the hard times that have hit the Kenyan tourism industy lately, but this hotel was flat out boring. The food is lousy. 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

Loved everything about Baobab! The food was amazing, so much to choose from and even though the hotel was very quiet they still had everything available! The restaurants were clean and airy and the service was very good. All the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The pool/bar areas are brilliant, we mainly spent our stay at the Kole Kole...

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

Most reviews here are for the hotel. I was here with my family to experience their Chinese food. The food was really great and would recommend it to everyone. The staff were very courteous and food was served rather quickly, specially when you compare with other local restaurants in Mombasa. They had a nice variety to choose from as well.
