Visited baobab for the restaurant. Lunch was served eagerly and promptly. It was, however, a really average. I also found it odd that the prices in the menu did not include taxes. So expect to see funny numbers like 347 for soup. There isn't much else to say about the place except that it's clean and I have yet to...

Probably one of the worst experiences I've had on a holiday. The staff and management are pretty clueless on customer service. Would not return even if they paid me instead of the other way around. There are plenty of other better managed hotels along the coastline of mombasa..

This is the best vacation I have had to date. The room was comfortable but in all honesty we did not spend much time there. The activities available are great, not to mention the open bar....:-) The staff are ever helpful and after some time there, you get to know everyone who is there.

From Uganda, 16 of us visited Baobab from 23rd to 26th March 2017. We were disappointed by the ghostly sight of Mombasa town, and expected the worst! The moment we checked in Baobab, we were all amazed by the reception and ambiance of this little paradise; marvelous beach, absolute security, friendly smiles filling the air with the "Jambo!!" greetings... Rooms...

Excellent hotel, booked via Bonfire adventures. All inclusive was such an excellent deal, awesome meals, nice and friendly staff. Can't complain. Extremely clean swimming pools. The swimming pool staff need to be a lot more friendly. They all seemed thoroughly bored and disinterested with their jobs.

We stayed at Baobab on the weekend of 25th to 26th March 2017. The rooms are great, had lots of fun at the swimming pool with their great views of the Indian Ocean. The hotel is just next to the beach adding to the incentive. We didn't like the food, there was little variety. On the second day I asked...

Were booked a couple of days after our wonderful safari to Tsavo, Taita hills and Amboseli. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The air conditioning was working albeit noisy. The grounds are well kept and the beach is amazing. Food was plenty and in great choice, we loved the fresh fruits especially the Mangoes-sweet. Staff friendly and mostly helpful. Can...

Overall, are time in Diani was good but the hotel left things to be desired. On 2 different days, our air conditioning went out. Each time it was minor - a. Token remote and tripped circuit. Fine...but it took all day and evening to get them out to fix it. It was more than annoying. Then, I made reservations for...

We stayed here for Christmas 2016 as part of our Safari package booked through Julius Thuvi Safaris (please see separate review) So after 8 nights on safari travelling through Kenya we arrived for Christmas at the Baobab Beach Resort. I could write pages and pages about this place, the staff did not stop night or day to make sure every...

We stayed for 4 nights at Kole Kole. I was instantly put off having had to wait in the reception for almost 40 minutes just to check-in; in sweltering heat, with no water to quench our thirst! We eventually managed to check-in with a room of our choice with a higher rate than expected. Staff are generally friendly, but was...
