Great Hotel, very good rooms and Superb pool. All it lacks is the morale and enthusiasm in the staff all over the hotel. This i would say is a management problem since almost all the staff don't have a morale in their work. Little improvement and the hotel shall be one of the best around. In the catering the F&B...

Excellent location with most pristine stretch of Diani beach, the resort is split into three - Robinson Baobab, Kole Kole and...

Home away from home....great customer service experience and friendly staff. The food was good too and the chefs went out of their way to serve different types of food to cater for different taste buds and provide a culinary adventure.

I recently spent 4 nights here with family. We booked into the Kole Kole resort and had a wonderful stay, our rooms were exceptionally spacious and well equipped. The resort location is faultless with breathtaking views overlooking the ocean, best enjoyed from the infinity pool. The food was satisfactory, a good variety of cuisine (some better than others) and the...

Stayed at kole kole for 6 nights early week of January. Couldn't say anything bad about the staff, very polite and helpful from check in to check out. Food was OK, not the best but good for all inclusive, with a good variety. Had dinner at the sea food restaurant once, it's is on the pricey side but worth it....

We stayed at Kole Kole just recently with our children and really enjoyed our stay. Having stayed at another 5* property in Diani, I much preferred this place. The rooms were huge, 2 double sized beds plus plenty of room for the kids to run around. Balconies are also big and have a large lounger for 2 people to relax...
