... Baobab is one of few I visited twice. First time, about a year ago I stayed in the cottage, and recently I lodged in a standard room. Certainly there is a difference, but I am still not convinced that its worth the surcharge. The room was big enough with two large comfortable beds, a flat screen TV and a... More

We stayed in the Kole Kole wing of this resort in early August 2014. My wife, 9 year old son and myself really enjoyed the hotel and would like to return. Before we departed from Germany, we seriously considered cancelling our booking because of all the reports about violence at the coast in Kenya. In the end, we decided to... More

Luckily our room was an upgrade - not requested but certainly appreciated; huge with two double beds and a massive bathroom with a shower that would take a football team (all together - not one at a time!).When we went on Safari we paid to keep the same room as some rooms smaller and less attractive. On the ground floor... More

We stayed at the hotel in September 2013 for one week with my partner for our anniversary and we loved it! This was our second stay at the hotel. The hotel was well kept and we liked our room (sea facing cottage) - clean, spacious and very comfortable. The hotel is big and guests have access to the other 2... More

We went in Jan 2014 and stayed in a beautiful room in the Baobab, with a view of the sea. I room was spacious and comfortable and very clean. The hotel grounds were also very well maintained. Men had to wear trousers in 2 of the 3 restaurants, the Maridadi allowed shorts, but the selection of food was not as... More

We visited last July for the third time and were very disappointed on this visit. We had previously visited twice (prior 2010), staying at both Kole Kole and Maridadi and absolutely loved everything about the Baobab resort but it has gone downhill since new management took over. We stayed in the Maridadi wing where rooms are well designed and spacious.... More

We have just returned from a week stay at this resort end of June and I would highly recommend this resort. Baobab Beach resort is without a doubt one of the best resorts in Diani Beach. We arrived in Diani Beach after our 4 day Safari in Masai Mara. We flew with Safari Link from Wilson Airport in Nairobi to... More

I tried to book a room in the baobab division but unfortunately it was full and I was booked in Meridadi. And it qas even better! ! The room was perfect in every aspect. Neat, clean, had perfect view and... More

My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for a week in early May but the weather let us down. Rain all day and all the restaurants nearby the hotel (out of the resort) were shut due to off-peak season. Staff very attentive and food generally very good. But our timing was off. And the beach boys were INCREDIBLY annoying and... More
