Local tourism is on!!! 1 in 7 is Kenyan. Proud Kenyan @50. Really nice service, good food and great place to be with family. If you are not into the likes of Safari Cane, I suggest you stock yourself or identify a local on your way. Drinks outside all-inclusive deal are rather exorbitant. Enjoy!!

We stayed at Baobab Beach Resort in the Maridadi wing for a week after our safari in September. We were booked in for a standard Baobab room but having read reviews decided to upgrade to a Maridadi room and were so pleased we did. The Baobab rooms looked so much smaller and darker and on top of each other. The... More

Cannot think of a better place to stay. This three hotel complex is set in a stunning location right on Diani Beach in lush tropical gardens. Choice of food and drink is excellent as is the entertainment put on by the animation team each evening. You do have to be wary of the monkeys roaming around the grounds and DO... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Maridadi at the end of a Kenyan Safari Tour. The rooms are very large and spacious with lovely furniture ( big bed/ lounge area with couch/ small fridge). Each room also has a nice size balcony with chairs an couch. The all inclusive is fine ( food and drinks all good - not great... More

We booked into Baobab Beach with for our family for our annual vacation. We were a group of 7 adults with two 5 year olds and 3 babies between us. Baobab beach/Maridadi/Kole kole seemed the perfect place due to its size facilities and all inclusive offerings. Our first problem came on the first day and involved one of the animation... More

Very good room size. Excellent food. More choice of beers would be preferable. Need to be careful of the colobus monkeys. We closed the net doors in the balcony, to our surprise, the monkeys ripped the nets and helped themselves to a chocolate in our bag. Need to make sure that the main glass doors are kept shut. the monkeys... More

This hotel is actually part of the baobab beach resort, not sure why it is classed as seperate as they share a reception? You are able to use all the facilities of the baobab, however the pool in this part of the resort is a quiet area so no entertainment / music by the pool in the daytime and the... More

Arrived at Maridadi after a week on Safari, the room was fantastic, the food was really good, but the best bit was watching the Colobus monkeys outwitting the staff in their attempts to stop them from stealing food.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the moment we arrived at the hotel, the friendly and warm service we recieved was enough to make us recover from the journey's fatigue. Right away we were led to one of the restaurants for lunch and the great experience had just began, with unassuming waiters and waitresses, chefs and even the managers. We enjoyed every minute of our... More

We stayed at Baobab for 1 week during our family holiday in November 2012. We felt like staying in a jungle with all those animals and plants around. Monkeys knocked at our window and lizards walked on walls and grass. Old, magnificent baobab trees and palms created fantastic, tropical atmosphere. The hotel itself is very comfortable especially food court and... More
