We have been here for a meal but this time we stayed 2 nights but it was a shame the hotel was nearly empty as I think the standards were down a little,I had no tea and kettle in my room till I'd asked twice and they did have a lot of mosquitoes but that may have been the time... More

I spent a full week in the Baobab Sea Lodge hotel in Kilifi in December (just before Christmas). I must say this place has the most attentive, cordial staff I've met in a hotel in a long time. The food is great, the pool is beautiful, the location with direct access to the Indian Ocean is perfect. I felt super... More

We were pretty much alone for most of our holidays here, so it felt like we owned the place :-). Still the nice staff was there for us the whole time and made our stay perfectly beautiful. Food was great, as well as the massages, the pool and of course the ocean. We had problems with sea weed for some... More

The conference hall is unrivaled amongst the major hotels in Kilifi as it is very spacious with a very fast internet connection.The waiters attending to us at the hall... More

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year and it was OK but really nothing special. Breakfast was especially disappointing and having looked at the menu for the evening meal, we went out to eat. Hardly any service around the pool and unlike the beaches further down the coast the beach area outside the hotel was terrible and had not... More

The hotel itself is located in a nice peace area on the beach by Indian ocean. We spent there 10 days in July-low season time. First 5 days we were the only guests, so it´s difficult to value the food as they only cooked for us. The staff is very friendly and polite. We had a lot of talk together.... More

After a sad start to our stay in Kalifi Kenya we ended up staying here for a week, great staff who did al they could to make us comfortable. Would highly recommend it as a great place to stay..Although pricey it has to be said over the Christmas period.
