Very good place, open sea view, nice swimming pools, nice food, nice lawns, nice range of cultural activities with water play, etc but be careful from monkeys :) Easily accessible to coral island which is one of the best things to discover to see the marine fishes :)

We stayed at Baobab hotel and Spa for 7 days and 8 nights. It takes approx. 2 hours from the airport in Mombasa. Overall it is a nice clean hotel and the staff are really friendly. They have around 3 pools, one which is a 3 tier pool! The entertainment team seemed good although we didn't see much of them....

The hotel & the beach is very very clean & hospitable . We were happy with food being vegetarian I was given special choice & attention. The swimming pool is very nice & sports during day is fun. At night it's nice to see traditional dances with dinner.

I love this resort! Absolutely the best. The staff here are great. They're always smiling and very helpful. Also in the morning, a few of the staff have a welcome/Goodmorning song which they perform. The resort is very spacious, with 3 different eating areas and 3 different swimming pools and bars. We got the all inclusive package which was great...

Almost everything was good. Only one thing we would like to change was food - a bit boring and too local. The rooms were clean, stuff very friendly , very close to the beach and nice location - full of monkeys:)
