We have stayed here several times now and have recomended to others who have also enjoyed their stay. We have stayed in all 3 within this site- and the great thing is whichever one your staying at you still have the choice of eating and swimming at any of the sites. As we have children we found kole kole side... More

We spent 4 nights at Kole Kole. The resort is lovely, and the fact that you can choose to swim in any of the three pools and eat at any restaurant is great. The food choice was a little boring and repetitive, but the taste was great. There were lots of activities in the day and the performances at the... More

Love Mombasa and first time I'd been to Kole Kole. Had a lovely stay and the staff were so attentive. Great beach, pools and animation programmes and decent food. The rooms were absolutely huge! Perfect for Mombasa with good a/c and the lovely touch of fruit on arrival. They also quickly arranged for a mosquito net which was great. The... More

We had 2015 Easter vacation at Bao Bab resort. Very nice hotel, clean rooms, large variety of food, including vegetarian. Staff is very friendly and work hard to make customers happy. Resort was full of activities, just being in the pool, we had games, water gymnastics, water polo all planned and conducted by staff. Kole mole resort had good baby... More

No doubt! It's perfect hotel and in my opinion the best on Diani Beach. I was in Baobab two times. Friendly staff, awesome ocean view, very good food (all types). I was located in Baobab ocean view bungalow - must! Compare to f.e. Sri Lanca better choice. The most endearing was Safari - Masai Mara + ocean safari with dolphins... More

My husband and I stayed at Kole Kole for 1 week with our 8 year old daughter and 5 year old son. Kole Kole is one of 3 Baobab hotels (the others being the original Baobab hotel and the Maridadi hotel). Guests can move freely between all 3 hotels and use the swimming pools, restaurants etc. of all 3 hotels.... More

Stayed in the Kole Kole wing for 5 nights in Feb 2015 with my wife and 2 children. I was born and brought up in Mombasa, so very familiar with the hotels here. The good bits are the lovely pool at Kole Kole, the powder white beach - one of the finest, the vast majority of the staff I came... More

We were at kole kole for 2 nights and we had a great time. We stayed in the kole kole wing which costs slightly more than the baobab side because the rooms are bigger and nicer. We did have a slight issue with the AC, which was not cooling the room sufficiently, but that was livable. The food is good,... More

I've been going to mombasa for as long as I can remember. I am from Kenya and Mombasa is where my family and I have our beach holidays. I went to baobab beach... More
