Together with my wife I spent five days in this resort at the end of 2012-beginning of 2013.
There are three areas in this resort: Kole Kole that was populated mostly by Italians, Maridadi and the Baobab areas where stayed especially German and British people. Each one has its own swimming pool, bar and restaurant but you can move freely between them.
We stayed in the Baobab zone in bungallow and the room was very cosy and clean.
The service at the restaurants and bars is not bad, but with a tip of 1$ or 100 shillings you will see improvemets. In spite of 90% occupancy rate, the bars and restaurants were not crowded. The food and the beverages (even the local ones) were not bad at all.
The landscape is amazing, especially from the Kole Kole area where the swimming pool seems to enter the ocean.
The new year's eve night was very nice, starting with an ellegant gala dinner and followed by a wonderftul beach party till the dawn.
The animation team was not perfect, still they managed to keep our attention. They have to do more for a bettter evening animation (they usually left us alone on the disco after 23 in order to catch the bus to the city) and also with sport activities.
All in all, we had a pleasant stay and the Baobab resort, so it is a place to recommend.
