despite booking early for a group holiday consisting of 13 people (4 families). We were sent a rooming list indicating that we were grouped according to the various families. However on getting there my children were in a room on 1st floor while I was placed in a room on 3rd floor. Despite complaining to the front office no change...

Was here with some friends mid march,we were picked at the airport and on arrival we got some drinks,the rooms we were assigned were in bad condition but after talking to the staff we were moved to better rooms though they were so reluctant to do this and that is why i gave them a 4.

I had an awesome holiday. The service was excellent. We were picked from Ukunda airstrip by a very friendly driver and we enjoyed since that very moment. The rooms are fantastic and well kept. The food has great variety. You will need to be cautious about the monkeys as they can enter your room. Overall great experience.

4 of us stayed in baobab part. All inclusive option. Rooms were ok, clean and towels changed everyday. Staff super nice , helpful and polite. Food was diverse both breakfast, lunch and dinner with lots of veg and meat. Men need to wear longer trousers for dinner otherwise refused entrance. They have 2 restaurants in different parts of the premises...

Okay, maybe we didn't love the strange-shade-of-white towels or the room housekeeping too much. But apart from that, Baobab Beach Resort was everything we needed it to be and more! Absolutely fantastic. From the warm welcome at reception, to the free upgrade to a superior room, to the freshly-made-as-you-wait food, Baobab will satisfy most fussy travellers :-) . The place...

This was my second visit and still very amazed with the whole experience... Great reception, picked from airstrip (ukunda) on time, driven to the hotel to a very warm reception. Kind/friendly stuff, very clean rooms, breathtaking hotel as a whole. Excellent meals,...definitely coming back again and recommending others....

Stayed at KoleKole for 4 days, I enjoyed the variety of food, which I didn't get tired of as you're bound to while on an all-inclusive, the pools are amazing and the staff friendly and attentive all through. I also went on a jet-ski safari, which is a great addition to your holiday if you would like a different day...

An expansive place with great amenities for families. I have a few issues with it though: 1. the meal-plan was so monotonous and lacked variety; I couldn't wait to go home and eat something different! 2. Snacks are served at the bar area which I find not to be proper for children as they are exposed to adult stuff plus...

This being the second visit to the hotel,we enjoyed ourselves.This time round, we were booked at the Baobab which was OK but we found the rooms to be much smaller in size compared to Maridadi. The food was great, animation for kids and young adults was also great. The Kolekole swimming pool was a favourite with a buzz of activities...
