The staff at this hotel were the friendliest I have ever met on holiday; they really could not do enough and all seemed to really enjoy what they did. Every morning on the way to the gym or breakfast everyone would always say hello and take time out of their busy mornings to chat and get to know you. The...

This being an all inclusive hotel (food and drinks included in room rate), we had a great time munching away. Plus the 4pm tea and capuccinos and the 10am and 6pm hot snack, pizzas etc made this a great place for a foodie like me. Our room size in the maridadi wing was huge, and had 2 double beds, but...

Being peak travel time,the place was packed. Offers a good selection of meals and activities. However, what was supposed to have been the quiet pool was full of noisy children. This wasn't managed well at all. Spacious rooms.

This was venue of choice for a high school re-union in November 2016, and it worked a treat. We stayed at the Kole Kole site, on shared grounds with Maridadi and Baobab. Rooms faced the beach, any issues (cold shower) were promptly addressed, and staff were superb. The restaurant had a very good choice of hot foods, salads and desserts,...

Please note that this hotel is a three in one, some may say that is great, but it spans soo wide that you're exhausted by the time you reach dinner or even the kids play pool. I strongly advise parents to look for another hotel as it is a nightmare to lug all the luggage you have all over the...

The staff were constantly rude including swearing, shouting and ignoring us when we had a complaint. I have never experienced such bad hospitality! We had a lot of money stolen from our rooms when we were away and were never compensated! We were graduated students and they perhaps took advantage of that and were incredible rude to us. Bar staff...

I don't enjoy big all inclusive resorts, that said, I booked one because I thought it was worth the price for an unpretentious weekend. The food is not good and the drinks so so. We dine outside the two days we were there. The pools are very beautiful and you basically can use 3 hotels: Baobab, Maridadi (where we stayed)...

We had a terrible experience at Maridadi ... The staff were rude and they even messed up our rooms giving us a room is baobab instead of Maridadi..! Please save yourself of misery and stay elsewhere.! I have never had such a bad experience with any hotel before. I love Mombasa and this experience has just made me re-think. I...

“As this hotel is very big, the baobab wing would be best, as it helps reduce walking to the other 2 hotel wings in the compound.”
