Not for Couples

A beautiful hotel with great buffet food and lots of children. If you are a couple with children then this is the place for you. Play areas, long breakfast time, buffet food, activities for the children and plenty of pools and sports areas. However, as a young recently married couple, (who left the kids at home for the first time) this was really not for us. The hotel is beautiful and the staff were pretty good. High quality food (for a buffet), poor a la carte choices (only one and always empty). I fail to see a significant difference between it and its' sister hotel across the road which is a 4 star, and much more suited towards couples. Would I return, not as a couple but as a family probably yes. It is a magnificent hotel with good to very good services and amenities. With that said you do pay for this.

First time away on my own with my 8 yr old daughter. We felt very safe in this beautiful resort. The staff make this hotel, very friendly and helpful. The hotel is immaculate and clean. Amazing pools. We were there on a HB basis, food was lovely. Plenty of choice to suit all. Beach is short walk and lovely shops and restaurants nearby. It was lovely to receive a surprise complimentary bottle of champagne on my birthday!! We will definitely be returning :-)

Just got back from a weeks stay at the Baobob. Loved the hotel, the African theme & the beautiful grounds. Sunbathed at the relax pool everyday in mid 20 temps it was lovely. Room was fine, modern with a nice bathroom and powerful shower. Cleaning of room excellent. Dining experience so not 5 star as is having to pay for safe, wifi, water etc. Loved Meloneras and would def return but not to this hotel due to cost and the restaurant situation. Also found some areas of the hotel chilly on a night so preferred to go out for drinks as felt warmer outside. Lots of lovely bars & restaurants on the seafront & the resort has a really nice upmarket feel to it.

We stayed there for 6 nights in October 2014 and it was really nice. The hotel decoration is very well done (modern African style), the staff is very helpful, bars are amazing and concerning food, we were amazed by quality and available choice. There are plenty of swimming pools, even if there was a lot of people around them, we always found place to stay. The hotel is well situated, near sea, shops and dunes. Rates are a bit high but there were worth it. Would definitvely stay there again.
