We have been visiting Kole kole and the sister hotels for several years, as we are Kenya residents. Have always enjoyed the spacious rooms at Kole Kole, the food and the beautiful view onto a stunning beach. As with any large hotel group, when the hotel is full, the charm gets lost somewhat. On our recent trip in November, the... More

Lovely place, despite 3 hotels merged together - one could not feel it crowded....loved the evening shows performed by the hotel staff - these are just amazing ....Silver Circus showcased for the first time. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The only thing that one gets tired after the 3rd day is probably the food - though the Chef was... More

October 2016, great time for 6 adults and one toddler. We stayed at Kole Kole. The Baobab hotel is divided into three areas Baobao, Kole Kole and Maridadi. The differences are in the hotel rooms. But not in the food. The food is all cooked at the main restaurant, and then distributed to all three smaller restaurants. The food was... More

I stayed here with my family in October 2016. We were four adults with two young kids in three rooms. The rooms we had were very spacious and well laid out with a nice view of the infinity pool and the ocean beyond it. Each room had a nice double lounger on the balcony which we made full use of...

We visited Kole Kole with my wife and 2 kids. The superior rooms have 2 queen sized beds. Perfect for the whole family. You can choose to eat at Kole Kole or at one of the sister restaurants. The all day pizza and snack kitchen is great for when the kids get hungry.

Restaurant is nice and the infinity pool is a great place to relax. Good staff and overall good service. A bit on the noisy side for my preference but that is because it is lively. They have a lot of on site activities that can be organised as well as a lively activities team. Good beach although a bit rocky.

We had an amazing time there. We stayed for 5 days and 4 nights. The best part of the holiday was the service. The staff are very helpful, courteous, speak several languages and overall have a great attitude. They also have a creative/entertainment team "Jambo Team" (i think) that keep you entertained during your stay, with water aerobics, zumba, archery,... More

Initially, my sisters and I were booked at the Baobab Resort but the room was small and so we asked to see the rooms at Kole Kole. The staff (all but Mwangi, our porter) were friendly and not at all offended that we wanted to upgrade. Rooms at Kole Kole are spacious,beautiful sea views and close to the swimming pool... More

We arrived late at night, so went straight to bed. On waking the following morning, we had monkeys on our balcony, WOW. The hotel has great facilities and is primely placed on Diani Beach. You will get hastled as you walk on the beach, but the view stops you getting annoyed at this. The food and accommodation at the hotel... More
