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

So I've never felt compelled to write a review till now. Mostly because where I've stayed has never disappointed. I should review them and give them credit. 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

Hotel Kole Kole is a very great place to stay ; although quite vast, you feel very quite and peacefull, great beach, several restaurants with good food, snacks by the... More

LOVED IT!!!!!!! We were welcomed with a beautifully cold towel and a cold juice. Our holiday had the best start! Our room was clean, well ordered, and with just enough furniture to make the stay feel like home. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and they quickly fulfilled our request for mosquito nets, and a quick insect spray before dinner.... More

We stayed at Kole kole for 4days with my family, as it's an all inclusive hotel which is 1 of 3 interlinked hotels, Maridadi, Kole Kole and Baobab. You can wander into any of these hotels and eat where you please. Kole Kole has activities all day, whilst the other 2 hotels are good for just lying by the pool... More

I stayed at KoleKole with my family for a couple of nights as a reunion and was impressed at the level of customer service offered. The staff bent over backwards to help guests, were always smiling and polite. Having been to many hotels before, this by far tops my list. It has been architecturally very well thought out, the cuisine... More
