Baobab is a great place for long holidays. Loved The infinity pool, the mocktails, some staff and the chill spots all over the hotel.., Really dope. It was also nice that one could move from Baobab to Maridadi or Kole Kole for meals and refreshments.

Perfect with children and relaxation. The resort offers everything you need and close to the beach, will provide you with the opportunity to go for a beach safari or a run/walk along the beautiful coast. Staff is very service minded and helpful

The scenary was beautiful and there is multiple activities available. Wild monkeys roams in the hotel area and you should be careful about rabies if they bite you. Do not feed the monkeys! The saddest thing is that the rooms are invaded by fleas and the food contains harmful e. coli bacteria which gives you a fierce diharrea and vomit attacks. You should not visit this hotel and if you do, be careful what you eat. The staff even lectured us after the incidence and everyone in the cithcen were not helpful after vomiting.

As we drove up to this amazing hotel after a very long drive, we were just itching to get into our rooms. The place looked amazing, we were booked at the Kole Kole residence and had splashed out on the superior rooms. As we came inside, there was no one to help with luggage and no staff to welcome us, this was a really poor start to our holiday. The check process was very painful as there was only one staff on duty and we had 4 rooms. No Drinks were served to us while we waited and no member of staff even asked if were were ok. Once all rooms were checked in they only had 1 person to help with luggage. In the end we took our own luggage upstairs, but thena the guest maanger helped us. This was really frustrating. The rooms were amazing and clean! be careful of the monkeys! they will come into your room if you leave the door open. The resort is nice, however as Kole Kole guests we expected some exclusivity to our amazing pool area. However this was not the case, as we were there through the weekend it was really busy with outside guests and also from the other resorts. The sports games are also very frustrating when you are trying to relax by the pool and the staff don't really try and help. The games should be played at another pool not the infinity pool. Saying that the water aerobics was amazing and a great idea. The food was standard, the fresh Pizza were hit and miss, sometimes they were nice and fresh and sometimes they were not pleasant, depending on the chef, staff are all very welcoming and pleasant. The restaurant food is nice, we liked the change of theme everyday at the restaurant. the food was tasty but it did feel the same everyday. The evening entertainment was good, we went to watch the lion king which was nice, and the bar area was really pleasant at night times. The beach area is amazing and the best part of Kole Kole. It is a beautiful resort, but it should be made exclusive to guests who are paying extra for the nice rooms.

Chinese restaurants are in short supply in Mombasa. What amazes me is how expensive it is ? Most other countries are cheaper in comparison to other types of food here. Also this is the only place i know who ADD 16% VAT AND 2% SURCHARGE ON AT THE END. very annoying. I ate alone, one noodle dish and one pork dish with green tea. Total of 2300 ksh but then add extras and it was 2720. That took me over the cash i was carrying so i had to pay with Mpesa. But they don't have a paybill so i pay by sending money AND THEY ADD THE MPESA CHARGES! SO I SUFFERED BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT UP TO DATE WITH MPESA. And the food was chewy! Not going again.
