Baobab is located in south coast where the beaches are clean and not over-populated. Unfortunately, the hotel itself is old and tired. The AC in my room was not working, but the hotel staff attended to it. They need to replace the AC's because they are old and not fully functional. Despite the AC being on the entire night, it...

Stayed for a couple of nights. All inclusive place. Rooms were interesting. Open plan bathroom, so bit odd if you're sharing with someone who's not your partner. Big resort, animation team, nice infinity pool, good buffets, a few very cunning baboons who are not scared so follow the instructions about not taking food out of the restaurant. I didn't see...

I was here early March, 4th to 7th and I think it was the perfect debut for me in north coast. The food was great with variety and well planned. The bars are also well stocked thus a real all-inclusive. A slight improvement on the night entertainment menu will be a plus, also allow more time for swimming in the... More

We stayed on 30th Apr-2May. My teen daughter, nephew and I were able to bond during the stay there. The reception was awesome and for once we never felt discriminated, something that we have encountered on some of the local trips. We felt we got more than we had bargained for, been an all-inclusive hotel. My daughter could not believe... More

This review is a little over due! Stayed at Baobab in August 2013 for a wedding. Great venue nice hotel/resort clean and friendly staff nice pools. Great views of the beach which are filled with men trying to sell things so not ideal for a single ladies holiday, although totally safe. Great value for money

Beautiful and lovely place to be.. was travelling alone, 4 nights but that didnt stop me from having fun, the hotel has daily activities to keep guests occupied through out.. The naughty monkeys at some point were also entertaining. Enjoyed the whole stay all in all.. looking forward to the next visit...soonest..

From the full on kole kole pool to the serene picturesque miradadi pool to. Staff all very pleasant and fun. They work all day to ensure you enjoy your holiday to the fullest. The evening shows they... More

And so this year I decided to try something new for my partner's birthday getaway. Settled for 4 nights at Kolekole. First things first: if staying in South Coast NEVER be tempted to fly in through Mombasa because the ferry service is ridiculously random and unreliable. We camped there 8 straight hours before crossing. Settled to buy a one way... More

I visited baobab for 4 nights with my boyfriend and had a really great time. The food especially the fish is to die for. We also enjoyed the entertainment every night. However the waiting staff at Karibu restaurant are very rude together with their f&b manager Maureen. The hotel manager Sakayo is a great guy and is striving to make... More
