I stayed here with my family in October 2016. We were four adults with two young kids in three rooms. The rooms we had were very spacious and well laid out with a nice view of the infinity pool and the ocean beyond it. Each room had a nice double lounger on the balcony which we made full use of...

We visited Kole Kole with my wife and 2 kids. The superior rooms have 2 queen sized beds. Perfect for the whole family. You can choose to eat at Kole Kole or at one of the sister restaurants. The all day pizza and snack kitchen is great for when the kids get hungry.

Restaurant is nice and the infinity pool is a great place to relax. Good staff and overall good service. A bit on the noisy side for my preference but that is because it is lively. They have a lot of on site activities that can be organised as well as a lively activities team. Good beach although a bit rocky.

We had an amazing time there. We stayed for 5 days and 4 nights. The best part of the holiday was the service. The staff are very helpful, courteous, speak several languages and overall have a great attitude. They also have a creative/entertainment team "Jambo Team" (i think) that keep you entertained during your stay, with water aerobics, zumba, archery,...

Initially, my sisters and I were booked at the Baobab Resort but the room was small and so we asked to see the rooms at Kole Kole. The staff (all but Mwangi, our porter) were friendly and not at all offended that we wanted to upgrade. Rooms at Kole Kole are spacious,beautiful sea views and close to the swimming pool...

We arrived late at night, so went straight to bed. On waking the following morning, we had monkeys on our balcony, WOW. The hotel has great facilities and is primely placed on Diani Beach. You will get hastled as you walk on the beach, but the view stops you getting annoyed at this. The food and accommodation at the hotel...

After checking out of Diani Reef Resort and spa having spent two miserable days there, we were delighted with Kole Kole. Admittedly it is an all rounder so not one specific area excels but recommend it for all inclusive and overall size of rooms are very good. Beds are a bit hard so make use of day beds dotted around...

We checked in with colleagues on a Thursday morning. The lone receptionist was initially overwhelmed but did manage to handle the whole group finally. The rooms are fairly large and comfy. You could choose to either have your meals at either of Baobab, Kole Kole or Maridadi restaurants which was quite welcome. The staff were friendly, great entertainment in the...

Our Company ( 22 members ) were on a bonding/vacation trip for three nights. The Resort had an offer whereby if we stay three nights, they provide the fourth night free of charge. We were booked on an all-inclusive rate on a full board basis. We were only going to stay the three nights and therefore did not take the...
