My experience at Baobab was overall fantastic. The dining was exotic and there was a variety of foods every night - you couldn't complain. As well as this, there were plenty of pools and room to fit everyone. The entertainment was superb. The only downfall was the cleanliness of rooms, so we eventually moved to a deluxe room and it...

We have three children and this place was a dream! The beach was beautiful, the hotel clean, the rooms lovely, the meals were incredible and we loved the themed dinners in the evenings. Overall, a most wonderful holiday. I would come again and again!

We visited Baobab for 3 days and got the fourth night for free! The place is beautiful, amazing architecture and scenery! Great food and drinks on all inclusive; very welcoming and courteous staff! I loved the Afya bora clinic which I visited for a free complimentary massage in the bandas close to the ocean! Loved all the three pools, three... More

A bunch of us had visited the Baobab back in 2013. We were all taken aback by the beautiful scenery. The resort is beautifully designed, with a magnificent view of Diani beach: accessible by foot only seconds away. The resort is huge, offering 3 restaurants that cater to breakfast lunch and dinner. Our package was all inclusive so we had... More

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...
