Stayed here as a solo traveller late November. Was warmly welcomed by the amazing staff. Stayed in a suite which was spacious and beautiful and cleaned to a high standard every day. Food was amazing with themed evenings from Mongolian, BBQ and Swahili. Breakfast was buffet style serenaded by weaver birds and Koi Carp swimming around waiting for morsels from the fresh fruit station. The hotel is quite small and boutique style and this lends itself to being the sort of place where you get to know all the guests. I met some wonderful people with whom I hope I will keep in touch with. Reading some recent negative reviews of this place makes me wonder if they were staying in the same hotel as me! I can’t find fault at all with Pinewood and I am a seasoned traveller. Take a bow all of

We stayed here for 7 nights following a safari to Tsavo East & West and Amboseli. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again in future. We had a ground floor suite which was really nice, private and roomy and looked out into a nice garden. Food was plenty good enough for us and for the most part the chefs were enthusiastic about the food they served which was good to see. The grounds are really nice and the location on the beach was ideal for us; the beach is beautiful, especially a bit further up toward the north. In terms of the ‘problem’ with the beach boys/vendors we just don’t get it? The few there were absolutely fine and by the end of trip we got to know them, even playing beach volleyball with them making up the teams; my advice is have a

Pamela and her team are amazing!!! From attention to detail to around the clock service with a warm smile... our every desire was met with a smile always. The layout is perfect for large unruly groups of people with different agendas. Best water front piece of the beach! The all inclusive is a great deal with families of all ages and appetites. It was a seamless, fuss free and enjoyable stay. The staff is what truly makes it special. From the management under Pamela’s very efficient leadership to chefs Ben and Nancy and their teams, the bar tend extraordinaire Charo and his crew... everyone made us feel at home every single day and night. Rooms are very spacious and always tended to. Pinewood is home away from home. Thank you for the memories 🙏🏼

Great location on Galu beach away from the crowds on their own private beach and nice pool with a swim up bar. The food: various selection of different fruits and tasty foods to eat for breakfast, lunch and supper so you could pick and choose whatever you wanted to eat. They have various themed dinners daily so doesn't get boring. Enjoyed the beach BBQ and the Mongolian night. The hotel is decent, clean, safe, neat and tidy and there's a mosquito net in your room (you're going to need it - but it helps keep them away). Every morning the cleaning staff came to clean and left our room spotless. Full WiFi, air-con and great service when needed. I would definitely return with the whole family and recommend to anyone.

Approximately 18 months ago my wife and stayed at Pinewood under the recommendation of a new colleague and now a friend. We celebrated my wife's birthday, no big deal - the staff caught a whiff of the event and at dinner that evening there was a birthday song and dance. This year, as we are running down the clock of our time in Kenya, we headed back to Pinewood - I mentioned that we were really keen to stay with them again - this time to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, a ploy purely to play on the heartstrings of the reservation desk because this a busy time with schools being on holiday and I really wanted to stay here. We were totally taken by surprise, the staff never hinted at their plans, but at dinner we were presented with a complimentary bottle of champagne, and for
