Baobab resort is a cool place the come if I told you my favourite place it is is baobab Then what's wrong with the place then. A lot. Customer service terrible. I mean like something put of garbage. Second is when you're room like everything is nice but when you go to the ocean 🌊 you often get sewed or sand they clean sand but now sewed like how. It like cleaning the insinde of a car then remain the outside. Third when you got an issue like being stang by a bee twice they don't care I called the resection about it and said well I will check it. And what did that do. They dis nothing. But now good things. Enjoyment what's exselent like how it has 3 pools a pizza area, drinks area, theirter for shows and more. I can't least everything here but everything is just ok with bad and good experiences.

Hotel's Favourite
We had such a great stay at this beach resort on Diani Beach. The staff is super friendly and welcoming which is always a huge plus. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious, clean and comfortable (all the things you want for a relaxing beach stay). The pools are set-up nicely throughout the resort. The food was definitely yummy and there were always a variety of choices. Appreciated the thoughts and efforts put behind the different themes each night (decorations in the dining area) - they were so fun and a nice touch! The all-inclusive is set-up nicely and was very enjoyable. Also, great entertainment at night. There are lots of monkeys throughout the resort. I enjoyed this part. And after all, it is their natural environment. ;) There are also men on the beach that will want to sell you wonderful souvenirs and take you on a boat ride to the "island". I bought some wonderful souvenirs and took the boat ride/snorkeling trip. It was wonderful too and a highlight of the stay! Enjoy the locals!

My family and I stayed at KOLE KOLE that has the infinity pool. The accommodation was great, with spacious rooms. The food was nice too with a wide menu to select from based on the days theme. Soda, however, came flat at times and the soup was over salted most of the time. The beach was clean with white beautiful sand. Great place for a beach holiday. The Jambo team was fantastic with activities and entertainment ( at the Porini Amphitheater every evening at 9:30 pm). Ukunda Airport transfer is free if staying at the hotel. The check out time of 10:00 am is early (still having breakfast) and should be moved to 11am or 12pm as in many hotels in Europe and other countries. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel should include some water sports (Kayaks, limited windsurfing, etc ) as part of the all inclusive package as happens in Watamu. We enjoyed our stay and this is definitely a place to visit again and again.

Dear Guest, Warm greetings from the Baobab Beach Resort & Spa. Thank you very much for sharing such a glowing and heartfelt review of our resort. We are pleased to hear that, on the whole, you have enjoyed your time with us and appreciated our great location for a beach holiday. Baobab Beach Resort & Spa really is an excellent destination for travellers that enjoy spending time in the water. The temperature is warm enough to swim all year round and, if ever you tire of swimming or snorkelling in the crystal-clear ocean, we have our famous infinity swimming pool where you can cool off or burn some energy swimming laps. Our location is ideal for those looking to enjoy quiet beaches and unspoiled nature, away from the crowds. There is plenty to do for those who enjoy spending time outdoors: from hiking and kayaking to leisurely nature walks and snorkelling adventures, there are new discoveries to be made at every turn! Please be assured that your kind comments and wonderful sentiments will be shared with the rest of the team - We have no doubt that they will be delighted to hear from you. We have taken note of your concerns with our soup and Soda and the same was shared with the relevant department for investigation. We hope that it is not so long before we can welcome you back to Diani and back at our resort. Safe travels.
