Baobab is a decent hotel. Wonderful beach. Great view, especially with the infinity pool. Good range of activities to keep you busy. Food and service however were a let down. The staff, especially at the reception, are not very friendly.

My husband and I stayed at KoleKole for 3 nights and we liked that it was calm and quiet. I think the beach and pool could easily pass for one of the best around - a well appointed property this is. I however think the all-inclusive concept means quality is at its lowest for drinks. The staff, with the exception... More

We've been told that its the best hotel arround- true story. Food is okay, but not that tasty, to be honest little bit surprised that there was no chicken through whole week. Breakfasts are boring since all you get is omlet or scrambled eggs, pancackes that look like and taste like rubber. Juice is from carton box, I thought it... More

Baobab is a great hotel - a truly peaceful oasis. The hotel area is spacious, there are several pools, two big restaurants, pool-side bars, anything you might want. The beach is truly gorgeous, but full of "beach boys", who won't leave you alone, trying to sell you something. The premium rooms are excellent, but the regular ones (had a short... More

Visited for a night only thankfully, firstly the receptionist was very welcoming and made me excited for our vacation with her welcome.

I've been there about three times already and counting. I always enjoy my visits to Baobab. Friendly staff, good food, crazy monkeys, and great location! Thank you Baobab. It's quite far from Mombasa International airport but luckily Diani has an airstrip close by. There is little to do outside the hotel but the area around is slowly growing.
