I'm not sure why I haven't posted a review on the Baobab before, considering this isn't the first time we've stayed at the Baobab! We've just spent four days at the Baobab - wish it could have been longer! Our booking was done online and payment was done on arrival.

You will find in Baobab everything you need to relax on the seaside: beautiful garden, nice rooms, perfect view on the ocean, fantastic staff and service, good food, and wi-fi... Usually I don't feel the need to go back to the place I've already visited, but I hope I will have a chance to visit Baobab again.

We booked our private chalet 1 month ahead. 3 weeks before we were supposed to check in, the owner (Marina) notified me that the chalet burned down due to spreading fires. When we arrived, we weren't happy with the alternative room allocated to us but Marina was extremely helpful by checking which rooms were available on other dates and relocated...

Can't really think of anything to quibble about. The food was a definite standout and the Xmas and Boxing Day "specials" were a nice touch. Baobab restaurant seemed to have the biggest range of food. Drinks? Local spirits are a little harsh - especially the large measures that get served. Ask for a single with lots of ice and you...
