We spent valentines day here as a couple, it was the most memorable experience one would wish for. I particularly loved the food and the room that we were given at the sea front. The housekeepers are very helpful and know their job. The decor and view of the ocean was just an out of this world experience. I would... More

The location of this hotel is good - a couple of hours drive from Mombasa. Nice beach and a large swimming pool. The hotel used to be a chic Italian place, but fallen since those days. The infrastructure and rooms are OK. Internet is back in the stone age and food is just terrible. Wine list included only two white... More

We booked the place as exclusive I.e full establishment plus any extra to be booked at baobab. However on reporting even after having confirmed all 50 units to us we were shocked that 10 units were booked to other guests meaning our members had to suffer inconvenience of boarding at Baobab. Most rooms had issues with air conditioning and fans... More

Although we were not staying at this hotel located in Kilifi on the Kenyan coast, we visited their beach side restaurant on Christmas day. The staff were amazing and very welcoming. Due to the many visitors on this day food orders took longer than expected. However, it was worth waiting. The chicken pizzas and chicken and chips/fries were awesome. The... More

Went to have a look and a 'change of scene' whilst staying elsewhere in kilifi... We decided to have a drink and a quick swim the pool before leaving. Unfortunately they did my tell us, and nowhere was it indicated, that they charge top dollar for a swim. Then sing appeared on the bill. Consequently we didn't have enough money... More

Lovely place. Poor service and unhelpful untrained staff. Food takes too long and limited choice. Not good PR. Was going to stay with kids over weekend but 1 staff attitude put us off. Very rude.Unfortunate. Could have been better with some tact.

Fantastic location and layout. Real resort atmosphere. Healthy for a break. The house keeping department changes towels and linen without the guests asking. They have a funny or strange habit of keeping hibiscus flowers on your pillows.The waiter named Warake really stands out. Those all make the good of it. Limited menu, inordinate delay in serving orders, absence of telephones/intercom... More
