Baobab hotel was a wonderful hotel to stay with just a few issues that can be easily fixed. The hotel is huge since you may move from the pool at Kole Kole to Baobab to the pools at Maridad. Each section has its own bars, lounge and restaurant. As long you are on the all-inclusive rate, you may eat and... More

We had an amazing holiday in December (X-Mas/New Year) at The Baobab Beach Resort & Spa in South Coast Diani. There are 3 wings – Baobab, KoleKole and Maridadi and hence you can use the facilities of the entire resort. We stayed at Kole Kole wing. The hotel was clean and all the staff (reception, housekeeping, Chefs, Waiters, Bar man)... More

An amazing place and the staff are wonderful and helpful, chatty if you chat with them, but only if you approach them, otherwise they leave you alone. We had three cottages or rooms in the Miridadi, as our stay was broken up by safari - when we booked we were only able to upgrade the room for the first part... More

We have stayed at many hotels in Mombasa and Diani but we have to say that we will unfortunately not be coming back to this hotel. Standard has really deteriorated and our experience was of poor service and unfriendly staff. Here is our pros and cons but need to emphasise the cons given our negative experience : Cons - Unfriendly... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Maridadi part of Baobab and had an enjoyable time. The ground floor room was spacious, facing the beach. The view is ok as there are quite a few trees in front of all the rooms. We initially wanted a top level room but all we could see were trees. The linens did smell... More

A great place for kids! There are many activities offered (check the schedule on the reception daily, it changes). However, if you want to do windsurfing, read the contract carefully. The provider is external, it is not the hotel, although on its territory. The contract was so abusive that we decided against it. Food is really diverse and great quality... More

That was amazing two weeks of holidays. Great place and fantastic people! Special thanks to the people from the Jumbo team: Sara, Alicea, Moses and Kanzi. Without you it wouldn't be the same. You are the best!

For a pleasant stay Baobab is a good place because of 3 different hotels. If you don't like the noisy animation...there always is the silent zone Maridadi, including their own restaurant with the amusing supervisor Rama(ridadi).

Stayed here for 7 days with my family. It has become my home away from home. Food is excellent and it has a number of activities for the kids. I just love Baobab!!! The only problem I had was that the air conditioning was faulty, called in technician who repaired but not to my satisfaction. Overall the hotel is superb!!

Diani is very nice. Boabab is huge but you don't necessarily feel that. People are friendly, though the strict dress code is a tad off-putting. Nice location with gorgeous beaches and pools. Rooms were clean and decent, no complaints there. Personally not very much into the entertainment but it was entertaining.
