Stayed twice at this resort - December 2014 and March 2015, at Baobab and Kolekole respectively, with family and a friend. We have enjoyed ourselves a great deal and would consider returning a third time. Overall, a good resort. Location is great, external ambiance is wonderful - the forest, the grounds, the cliff overhanging the beach! Meals are average, but... More

This is the best hotel in South Coast. It is clean, functional, up to standards, their customer service is out of this world!... You would want to go there and experience the best service ever. Their food, drinks (drink till you drop)... is quite awesome. A place to take your family for that long awaited vacation... I am definitely coming... More

I stayed here back in May after doing a weeks safari and this place is incredible! The beach is stunning and the staff were amazing. We were on an all inclusive package and the food was amazing- the chefs cannot do enough for you and the variety was astounding. The pool bar was great and the guy working on it... More

This is my second vacation to Mombasa, and both the times I stayed at BaoBab. Standard and superior rooms are spacious with balconies facing either to the beach or to one of the pools. The bathrooms in the standard rooms are bit small and shower area is not well protected. With kids taking shower, chances of water getting flooded into... More

It's been a while since we stayed here so the few criticisms that we had May have since been out right. Overall this is a good hotel in a nice location. The airport transfer takes what seems like an age and the roads are not for the faint hearted. The hotel is nice and facilities are greats. Our room was... More

We have just returned from our 10 nights stay in Baobab. Resort itself is on the beautiful Diani Beach. Sometimes it is a bit annoying walk on the beach because of so many beach boys who try to make a business. However there are many swimming pools within the hotel, so "hakuna matata." Staff are very friendly and welcoming, also... More

Good resort for family, friendly staff, good selection of food in buffet. Overall good level of service all around the resort. The amenities are good and lot to do without to leave the resort. One of the best beach we ever been. Watch out for the monkeys! We will be back!

I took my parents and brother to Diani as part of their first trip to Kenya and the Baobab was exactly what we where looking for!! The rooms where nice, clean and spacious. They are not at the ultra luxury end of the market but where ideal for us as we spent most of the time out enjoying the beach... More

As we are repeat offenders at this hotel (five times now) we don't understand why Thompson have dropped Kenya from their brochure. WE now have found a cheaper and better way to travel through Thomas Cook (netflights) flying with Kenya Airways, to Nairobi and then onto Mombasa. The was no problems at all with the two flights, we would even... More
