My Wife and I have just returned from a two week stay at the Baobab Beach Resort and would thoroughly recommend it as we had a really great Honeymoon. Our Flight was with Thomson and all went smoothly & very comfy, we upgraded to premium which was well worth it. We bought our visas before we left UK and went...

The Baobab resort is truly one of the most enchanting and magical places I have ever visited. The love and care and creativity from the animation team was abundantly clear. They worked very hard to make sure that we were all entertained with their different theme nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the prices for a luxury...

We have rececently returned from a wonderful two week holiday at The Baobab. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We have stayed in many hotels on the North and South coast and this is certainly one of the best! We spent most of our time at The Maridadi which is much quieter than Baobab and Kole Kole, but...

We stayed in the Kole Kole wing of this hotel. We had a deluxe room and our daughters of 18 and 20 had an adjoining superior room. The rooms were good but very open plan, even our bath and double shower overlooked the bedroom, the huge patio windows and our terrace...a bit disconcerting! We were on the ground floor, so...

Stopped here for 6 nights and can say this is a great hotel, Very friendly staff and beautiful location. The quality of the whole resort is exceptional with great attention to detail. The hotel is quite relaxing with plenty of beautifully nurtured gardens and very many tropical trees within the very large grounds providing for a very tranquil strolling environment....

Just returned from a total of 11 nights at the Baobab. Came back after three years and the resort is just as good. We had a stardard room in the Baobab part at first but upgraded to the superb Kole Kole side in a superior room. We love the fact that you can wonder around all three sections of the...

We ended a very hectic safari with a few days here. The rooms were comfortable. The buffet was reasonably varied, with the staff really making an effort on the themed nights. The pools were great - clean, warm and well maintained. The all inclusive drinks were OK, but nothing spectacular.Felt safe here despite problems in Mombasa.
