We stayed at the Baobab late January/early February this year so this review is a bit delayed but I felt it necessary to write now after reading some of the recent reviews. We were fortunate enough to stay in the Maridadi Wing, the room was just beautiful - large and well decorated. It was cleaned every day and replenished with...

Well we were expecting a very relaxing holiday after reading the reviews for this hotel. Recommended for honeymooners and couples for a relaxing peaceful holiday experience......not. We were shown to our upgraded room in the Maradadi part of the complex and we were very pleased with the accomodation. The first 2 days were idyllic. Pure peace then the 145 teenagers...

We had a wonderful time at the Baobab Beach Resort following our safaris at the Masai Mara (amazing) and Lake Nakuru (not as amazing - restricted so felt a bit like Woburn Safari Park). The staff were so lovely and friendly. We spent most of our time at the Maridadi end as that was quieter but the resort is quite...

Accommodation The rooms are nice, spacious and comfortable. We certainly had no trouble sleeping and didn’t find the beds hard. Rooms come with air conditioning, fridge, hairdryer, tv. The en-suite has shower gel and shampoo – although these are a strange luminous colour. The hotel is large and busy but there is never a sense of being overcrowded and you...

We returned from our holiday 2 weeks ago. The Baobab Hotel is a beautiful hotel offering a great choice of food. My partner chose this hotel for our honeymoon as the brochure said it was ideal fro couples and honeymoons.
