It is a few years since I visited the hotel (possibly 5/6 years) but I remember driving into the resort and being awed by the stunning setting and the way that it felt like you were in a different area from where we had driven. The roads and area around the hotel show quite clearly how poverty stricken the area... More

The rooms are in great condition and the location very peaceful and serene. Beach front is a challenge though during high tides. Set in a group of three different facilities, one can choose to eat at any restaurant and swim in any of the 4 swimming pools. There is however an outrageous breakfast show with some awful singing as the... More

There must be something in the food and water. Made me and couple of my friends sick. Service, not good. No hot water. Staff is great and friendly and all, but either they lack training or just unable to help you resolve issues.

We stayed at the Baobab for the second time this July, the facility is still a good one with lots to do but the customer service is just average nothing to write home about. We called the reception several times for different queries and they were either addressed very late or none at all. The food was however very good... More

What an amazing view and an amazing beach. Never, ever have I walked on sand so fine. It was like walking on flour or powdered sugar. Heels was just fall into the sand. To compliment, it would make sense that the resorts in this little slice of heaven would be just as fine. Unfortunately, that was not the case. We... More

We live in Nairobi and recently spent the 4th of July long weekend at Baobab on an all inclusive plan and were pleasantly surprised by its location perched on low ridge overlooking a beautiful stretch of beach with direct access to white sand clear blue water. There are all classes of rooms, depending how much you want to spend. We... More

I would highly recommend Baobab as a very pleasant get-away. We have stayed at various budget all-inclusive hotels at the coast, and this is by far the most updated hotel (others are sadly aging and getting run-down). This is three hotels sharing common property, so we could dine in any of three restaurants or use any of the three pools,... More
