Stayed in the Kole Kole wing at the Baobab from the beggining of Sept for two weeks, we had the end room on the first floor & from what we saw it was slightly more spacious than the others on our block. Transfers were fine the ferry took 10 minutes in total but the airport experience is not something I would wish to repeat. As soon as you get off the plane you have to scrabble round for your visa & then we waited in line for about 2hrs total, they certainly take their time. Anyway besides that minor inconvenience if was all good when we finally got on the bus & on our way.
Everyone you meet is really happy & friendly & go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
The resort is a lot bigger than we first thought but each area feels quite intimate, the quietest bit is the Mariadadi (not sure if that's spelt right) this is where we went quite a lot to relax in the morning & have lunch there. The Kole Kole is very busy & there seems to be something going on all the time which is great if you want to be really sociable & play games.
We had our aniversary in the first week & booked a meal at the Kole Kole al a carte restaurant which specialised in seafood. The meal was smashing & we had it all to ourselves which was quite nice.
All in all it was a fantastic holiday didn't get one mosquito bite but then we used expedition strength 100% DEET so I don't think anything would've touched us & we did stop taking the Malarone after the first few days as we starting feeling very anxious & a bit depressed, not what you want on a holiday.
Food was excellent I would say it was the best out of all the all inclusive places we have been so far even the Maldives.
