The setting is very nice with plenty of quiet spots to relax, although most of the resort is set above the beach rather than at the same level. Service is OK unless you want something specific done - such as repairs to a sink or moving room - in which case it is definitely below par and it is necessary... More

A bit late i know but we had a great time at Baobab during the summer of 2013. They were very supportive and provided great vegan food for us. They also responded very professionally to any issue we raised. They also helped setup great safari and boating trips. A great hotel to stay at couldn't recommend more highly. They also... More

My family and have spent our family holiday in Baobab for four years in a row. Every year we are determined to try something else but as we shop around and see what is on offer we always come back to Baobab. There are better hotels but they charge considerably more. If you want great an all-inclusive hotel with great... More

We arrived at Baobab for a short vacation. The overall experience was excellent and good value for money. The best aspect was the options available for virtually everything; pools, spa, meals, room types, restaurants, activities e.t.c. The staff are very friendly, and helpful. I'd recommend the hotel tour upon arrival for everyone, and the evening show as well. The most... More

Realised I had not reviewed this resort though we visited some years ago. It was so good that I need to put that right. The complex itself was beautiful, safe, and well laid out. We stayed in the Kola Kola wing which was a bit more expensive but worth the extra. Arriving in Mombasa by plane the bus journey to... More
