The hotel architecture has a magic of some far away exotic paradise. The staff are as friendly as you will find anywhere. For this retired couple it is a place we keep returning to, for the peace and tranquility, good food and a friendly service. Naturally one chooses the quieter times of year to see the place at its best, for not surprisingly it is a popular hotel abuzz with families during school holidays.

Baobab - best for children

If you have children Baobab is really a pleasant hotel. A lot of different swimming pool areas and snack-bars and restaurants blended into tropical lush gardens. This is unfortunately not so satisfying for me as an adult who would like to enjoy a 5-star hotel with its amenities instead of feeling like being in a Kindergarten. I would not recomend this to anyone who is looking for a nice and quiet stay, but for families it must be wonderful.

This is a very large hotel but doesn't feel it,there are so many pools and quiet areas to sunbathe always found a private spot no matter what time of day we went down. There were plenty of choices at meal times and a choice of restaurants to choose from. This hotel is situated in a great spot only 5 mins from beach. The only little niggle I have is it would be good if there was an adults only section for rooms as I was woken most nights from a crying child but apart from that wil def be back.

This is our 2nd visit to the Lopesan Baobab. The hotel overall offers great value for money and it's well worth the 5* rating. I think this is better than its sister hotel across the road. The rooms are very spacious and all have an outside balcony. The walk in showers are great and the bathrobes provided are a welcome addition. The hotel never seems busy, so getting a sun lounger is never a chore. The public areas, rooms, pool and gardens are kept to a high standard of cleanliness and there always seems to be an army of staff keeping these in shape. The food in my opinion is of a high standard, great choice and you will go hungry. They cater for everyone and I love meat, so the griddle is always sizzling to the sound of freshly cooked steak. Yum, Yum. The hotel is very relaxed, with plenty of staff ever willing to ensure that your stay is memorable. We will be going back again next year and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. In summary a first class hotel, great facilities, great staff, great location and I wish I was there now.
