Baobab vs Diani Reef

Hello all,

Can any of you lovely helpful people give me some opinions of hotels?

I'm struggling to choose between Baobab and Diani Reef, which both seem to be very similar price. 4 nights in March 2018 for 2 adults, celebrating our silver anniversary.

We're looking for a few nights to relax and explore after small safari.

I know they are at different ends of the beach - is one end better/cleaner than the other?

I also know Baobab is all inc - I think Diani Reef is only half board - does anyone know their prices/ availability of lunch, snacks, drinks?

Also which has cleaner, better facilities in room?

Thanks in advance

Both very good hotels, however there are some recent (-) reviews for Diani Reef on TA.

My vote for Baobab, since you're getting "All Incl" for the same rate as Diani Reef (which does'nt offer AI).

My office colleague recently stayed at Baobab & enjoyed it immensely.

Good Luck

We stayed at Baoba for 3 nights in July & loved it. The grounds are beautiful, the food was great and the rooms were ok - not fancy but fine. I would highly recommend Baobab but don't know Diane Reef so can't comment on it.

Both are good but Baobab is much better.Baobab has 3 resorts in 1 which comprises of The Baobab,KoleKole and Maridadi. Guests are allowed to access all the three and their facilities including pools,bars,restaurants etc.

The grounds are quite expansive and has a wide beachfront area.Baobab being an all inclusive hotel is also a bargain for the price.
