Underwhelming although maybe due to weather

Horsham, United Kingdom

First of all the weather did impact our stay as it rained continuously for 1 week - which made the time we stayed seem a little worse. However, this did not influence the other negative factors of the stay. Firstly, our room had a strong smell of damp that was very unpleasant to sleep in and to live in. Secondly, the water pressure of the shower was extremely weak and made washing difficult. Finally, the food was mediocre at best. Although this review seems harsh the hotel staff were very welcoming and the hotel looked very nice. The rain made our stay seem worse and i don’t doubt that sunny weather would have helped a lit. !!

Fantastic Family Holiday

Glasgow, United Kingdom

We have just returned from a 9 night stay at the exceptional Baobab Beach Resort. We arrived quite late on the Monday night and thought the restaurants would be closed but they provided us with a small buffet which was a nice touch. Check in was smooth and we asked for 2 rooms close together and this was no problem at all, we got 2 garden rooms at the maridadi wing of the resort. The rooms were clean and spacious and the garden setting was breath taking. Lots of mature trees and beautifully manicured gardens made us feel like we were waking up in paradise every morning. The food was very good with a varied healthy selection and the 3 buffet restaurants gives you the opportunity to mix it up a bit and dine in different surroundings. Restaurant decor and setup was very nice especially the one at Kole Kole with different themes for dinner each evening. The 3 pool areas are beautifully maintained, the surroundings of the quiet infinity pool at the maridadi are so relaxing for some quiet time enjoying the tranquillity and amazing beach views. The Kole Kole pool is were the day time entertainment takes place with the excellent Jambo team. What really makes the Baobab such an exceptional holiday resort is the staff, each and everyone made our stay so enjoyable. We had a great laugh with the Jambo team during the day Baracca was so full of energy around the Kole Kole pool getting people up for volley ball and water polo and even a dance. The one member of the Jambo team that stood out the most for us was Miss Khendy (Candy) she is a ray of sun shine with her infectious smile and the way she talked and greeted all the guests every day was so so nice. She is a delightful helpful young lady, all the kids loved her and she had us laughing everyday. The shows at the Porini amphitheatre put on by the Jambo team are amazing, so well put together with music dance and top class acrobatics. A very very skilled team of young men and women. All the staff are a massive credit to the resort top top class. My wife and I went for a couples massage in the spa and found it very relaxing and a very good quality massage, I would recommend it after a tough game of tennis. We would highly recommend this resort and look forward to staying again in the future. Anyone thinking of a
