Difficult to check in, but once in, enjoy!
The resort is very good in terms of cleanliness and comfort. However, and having been several times there, the only issue I always find is when checking in. It seems that the Receptionists (may have been instructed to) always try to put people in the old section and/or in the multi-story buildings in the back side of this large resort, even if pax had specifically booked rooms in the new section and had it already confirmed. Also, while the reservation note mentions 12:00pm as the check-in time, the hotel insists on 3:00pm and it is rare that you would be given a room even at that time; they'll make you wait for at least an hour or so before giving you the room. Other than the above, it's a resort worth visiting, especially for the evening shows.

they tried to down grade me but eventually not
Excellent stay as always. Although a slight inconvenience in the afternoon when they tried to assign me a room that was below the level ( standard room, no ocean view no sofa bed, twin beds) of what I had paid for ( ocean front queen bed with sofa bed). After requesting a compensation I was given keys to a room that was supposedly equivilant of what I had paid for but it wasn't once I visited the room. I had to return a third time to the reception. The manager tried to tell me that since I was only one person I was given a 1 person room. But that wasn't I had paid for. I had to see some one higher to explain the wrongful assignment and demand compensation. In the end they upgraded me to the 'honey moon suite' because they had given all the ocean front rooms away. I had a great time. I will have to go again to try the ocean front room.

Another great stay
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and it lived up to our first excellent experience. We had a problem with our rooms flooding slightly after a particularly extreme overnight thunderstorm. This couldn't have been anticipated and the way the hotel staff dealt with it was exemplary. And before we left I noticed the maintenance team were doing preventative work on other rooms to ensure no reoccurrence (however unlikely). No stay can ever guaranteed problem free so it's the way staff deal with issues when they arise that really counts. And the team at the Decameron Baobab are really on the ball.

Cleaning staff very good
There was only 1 restaurant open at the entrance of the resort, the other one was under reservation, the resort is large so if you dont get a room close to reception you are out of the picture. Surprised it is on the sea when the only type of seafood is fish, otherwise same spagetti/pizza bar/beef sutaied and chicken in different ways, salad bar and fruit bar. I ad to go acoross the Lagoon to get Gambas or languist...If your going for food don't. restaurants also not walking distance probably smae disappointment. Beach was nice but alot of rollers , not for non swimmers.I believe booking outside of a tour group we pay at least twice the amount a group would, oh yes, internet only in lobby if it works...Dissaffied. Note: if you only speak english forget mixing, the french dont do that well

Great location, lovely hotel, friendlystaff
We picked this hotel mainly due to location as we wanted direct access to the beach. However, it really exceeded our expectations. The location is at the very end of Somone, right next to a sandy spit that divides the ocean from a saltwater lagoon and mangrove forest (btw it's well worth a trip round the lagoon on a local pirogue - ask for Raphael as he is an excellent guide). The hotel is also close to the baobab forests and within easy reach of the excellent Bandia safari park. The quality of our Ocean Suite was excellent - spacious and comfortable with effective (and much appreciated) air-con. All of the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful and great with kids. The only slight downside was that some of the food was a bit overcooked (particularly the vegetables and some meat) but the variety was good with plenty of choice for different tastes. To be honest this is not unusual for all inclusive hotels. All in all an excellent stay and we would certainly return.
