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

I was a guest at Baobab on the last week of February. Magical place it is! The warm reception right from the guard at the entrance to the staff at the reception is so welcoming you already feel at home before checking in. The room (218) is spacious, very neat and a pleasant sight. Our 3 nights stay with my... More

I've been to this little heaven, a couple times; I've had a great experience! Food: is amazing....i've slept in Kole Kole and Baobab rooms, they are very spacious, the housekeeping team does a great job.... The only problem is with the entertainment team.... I find them very boring... oh, they also don't like mingling with African guests.... They should also... More

My husband and I, and our 1 year old son holidayed at Baobab Beach Resort and truly enjoyed the experience. The hotel is located at the shores of Diani beach, Kenya's prime beach, and offers beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. The rooms are so breezy and cosy. Travelling with a baby is always a nerve wrecking/ exhausting experience but... More

My wife and I took a three day trip to The Baobab from Nairobi. The resort is large, beautifully appointed and clean. The food buffet was good , with particularly delicious fish. My only complaint was the last night we were there there was an "African themed night". I know that the hotel caters to a mostly older , European... More

Visited Baobab last month (Jan 2015) and it was simply amazing. The rooms were clean and very well-maintained. There was a wide variety of food to pick from, and it being an all-inclusive resort meant we could always have a glass of juice as we relaxed by the pool. There being 3 resorts with no restrictions of where to spend... More
