Thomson/First Choice bookings in the Baobab Beach Resort is by room grading
Standard Rooms are in Baobab wing
Superior Rooms are in Baobab or Kole
Deluxe Rooms are in Maridadi or Kole
Kole Siutes understandably are in Kole Kole
we stayed in Kole Kole and were more than impressed , big rooms queen size 4 poster bed , 2 showers .bath robes,slippers etc wether or not you can upgrade I suppose will depend on the availability of rooms , but there are plenty of signs around encourageing you to upgrade , so it shouldn't be a problem
you a free to use all facilities at all the 3 wings , there is no restriction at all.
bear in mind if you have booked a safari with Thomson you have to vacate your room for the duration of the safari [they put your cases in secure storage] and return to a different room after , this may be a plus because some we spoke to were upgraded on return from safari !!!
it is annoying not knowing not wing you will be staying in , more so for us as a party of 6 , booking 3 x Deluxe rooms we wanted to ensure we were all on the same wing , being Deluxe we could be on Maridadi or Kole Kole , didn't mind which as long as all 3 rooms were together.
Thomson couldn't/didn't help , suggested contacting hotel
e-mailed hotel , they would sort it out on our arrival ?
hopefully all was ok
price difference between standard and deluxe if I remember was quite a lot , i'd be surprised if it was less than £150/£200 each [14days]
