A very nice clean site with very nice staff. Super delicious food, day entertainment, evening events... and much more. You simply have to feel comfortable. There was nothing to complain about. We stayed in a bungalow with a view of the sea, simply beautiful. We will gladly come again. read hotel review

Alles in Allem ein Super Urlaub. Bzgl Beachboys kann ich sagen, ja, sie nerven aber mit einem 'lauteren'no Sir, nothing' hatte ich eigentlich meist wieder meine Ruhe:) und auf der anderen Seite, es ist Ihr Job zu verkaufen, von irgendwas müssen sie leben.! Es gibt auch echt nette, gerne habe ich Ihnen eine Flasche Wasser (vom Hotel) mitgenommen, sie haben sich ohne Ende drüber gefreut. Wir buchten uns vor Ort bei der Agentur African Bush & Beach Adventures Ltd (auch hier bei HolidayCheck zu finden) eine Safari (3 Tage Masai Mara) und können nur sagen: PERFEKT und günstig! ... Für alles die es interessiert, unser Zeltcamp war das Olumara Camp (ebenfalls hier bei HolidayCheck zu finden), auch hier kann ich nur sagen, klein aber fein und einfach traumhaft! Ich kann nur sagen, danke an alle die bei unserem Traumurlaub beteiligt waren!) read hotel review

    From the airport about 1.5 hours away (including ferry and start other hotels). The hotel is located on a cliff, right on the bright white beach. The beach is to be reached via stairs. At high tide the water comes up to the stairs. One can with the taxi in different shopping center drive, we didn't bother.

We have already been in the Baobab for the 3rd time and can recommend it to anyone. Everything is perfect. The hotel is well kept, the rooms very clean and attractive, the staff always friendly and accommodating. The food there was a huge selection and for everyone something was attractive. Our compliments to the kitchen staff, who always a thought of something extravagant. There are many theme nights and the tables are very tastefully decorated. The entire hotel personnel goes to great lengths, to make sure their guests are happy. The entertainers during the day and especially in the evening ... in the theaters gave their best. Much praise goes to mama Afrika, she was always there with help & assistance for the vacationers. We will be back! read hotel review

We had a superior room - bungalow in the 1st series in Baobab-area. Rooms were big enough and the cleaning was absolutely ok. Faciltities: LCD TV ( ZDF ), a safe and a kettle. Had after the safari got an other room, where the refrigerator and the air conditioning did not work. And both things were after only a few hours taken care of. Function perfectly. Great. The food was simple only once. Super delicious. Super nice staff. Area very nice and spacious with the super curious monkeys. Beach with white soft sand, but unfortunately weather by algae and thus ... looked very 'ugly' Am now the 8 times in Kenya and the 1st'. Time in Baobab and for us it is the best hotel on the south coast. By 2015 we definitely will be in the Baobab. read hotel review

Very friendly staff. Clean and well kept room. Complaints (broken safe) were immediately dealt with. Food could be more 'African' for me. The annoying things are the baboons who hang around in the whole hotel complex and will even clean out your beach bag. As soon as you go on the beach, you will be besieged by the many souvenir sellers (very annoying)! The entertainment is not pushy either. read hotel review
