The hotel has good facilties, excellent food and fun activities for families. However, the services are terrible...especially the waiters. On one occasion...one waiter by the name "Sammy" was extremely rude to us and when we told him our dissapointment, he openly told us we can record his name and do whatever we want. This is quite unfortunate...hope the hotel does...

As soon as we entered Baobab, we received a warm welcome from the reception team, in particular Derrick who looked after us throughout our 4 night stay. My wife and I had a wonderful time, great food variety,drinks and entertainment. Lovely ocean views, variety swimming pools can't ask for more. Thanks to the Baobab team.
