In my view, if you lose the monkeys/wildlife, then you'll lose the character of the resort and wildlife along with some customers! Our 4th time to Kenya! Love this place - returned for the 3rd time to the Baobab and stayed in the Kole kole part again. This followed 10 days safari in Samburu, Lake Nakura and the Masai Mara,...

We stayed at the Maridadi -one of the three hotels within the property. Good value for money seeing as we were a party of 9...3 kids, 1 infant and 5 adults. Food was good though the chips some days tasted like reheated gunk.. wait staff are not the most motivated lot... couldn't be bothered to smile or attend to you...

Nice location on Diani Beach - the Baobab is a huge resort - good place for the budget conscious. Several pools and bars, large buffet style meals - not really much personal attention as the staff has many many people to accommodate. At the bar - beer is lukewarm, the liquor and wine in the all inclusive is awful, although...

I stayed in Baobab Beach Resort and Spa in Diani in the month of October 2016 with a group of work mates for our annual team building exercise. We were booked on an all inclusive in their lovely Maridadi rooms which are on the far end of the grounds. The hotel is huge and walking from Maridadi to the main...

I stayed in this hotel in April 2015 and got one night free out of the six nights I stayed there. The place is crowded - families and all but slightly quieter at Kole Kole. Rooms are nice and comfortable. Balcony is a fun place if you enjoy the mischief of monkeys. The food is repetitive but there is variety.

Baobab Beach Resort is the greatest place to chill out. We have stayed there many times and keep coming back. Once you pass the front gate you can forget about the world. Everything you need is on tap - all meals, booze and entertainment. The staff are so welcoming and ready to do anything to make sure you enjoy your...

Stayed one night while on a business trip. That was enough. Price is good - 7500 kshs for one night with full board - so for 75 USD i shouldn't expect much. However - no water bottles in room. It took one hour to get water delivered. And safety box did not have any lock - another hour to get...
