Disappointed for 460 USD / Night on Full Board Looked like A CARE HOME for elderly people The hotel were full with guests age between 65 -80 . The food was terrible from Menu , limited or extra surcharge on full board ! The Mango dessert wasn’t available but the vanilla ice cream and fruit platter yes ! The cheep and easy was available Rice was dry ,not fresh chewy meet for 460 sd / night Old bed and bedding Pool need an update. And more cleaning need . On the phone thick dust , it wasn’t clean for more then a week The only water battle we got for drinking was filled up few days before . These all bad experience came up only in few Hours that’s why WE LEFT the resort ! The security had cafe 2 yards away from us in the Lobby, the gun was facing to us ! it made me feel

Lovely beach,lounge areas, and rooms. Lovely food although breakfast could do with a tweek. Smoking near tv lounge drifts in which is a shame had to move away on more than one occasion. Staff are very accommodating and friendly. Would recommend.

Lovely room, delightful staff and excellent accommodation. Everyone we met was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed eating alfresco and entertainment fun.Food was a very high standard and waitress Eunice super helpful. Enjoyed the aqua aerobics everyday and would have welcomed a craft activity !!! Idea for the future????

Stayed here for ten nights in February. Fantastic stay all round. Lovely spacious room, with large balcony that was kept very clean every day. Very relaxing breakfast with no waiting for a table and chefs stationed to supply freshly cut fruit and eggs cooked in any way you like. Lovely setting overlooking beautiful fish and small birds. A la carte lunch provided a wide range of options including gorgous salads and pizzas. Enjoyed also the fact that the evening meals alternated between the main restaurant, pool and beach. Always plenty of sunbeds at pool and beach. All of the staff were fantastic with too many to name individually. Whilst this would not be a hotel that would suit people in search of a noisy nightlife it suited us down to the ground with a good range of cocktails

This was our sixth visit to Pinewood Beach Resort and it is better than ever. It is good to see the hotel flourishing and virtually full which reflects renewed confidence in the tourist trade in Kenya but also the incredibly high standards at this hotel. As a relatively small hotel situated on a quiet stretch of beach the overwhelming feeling is peace and tranquility. Accommodation is situated in small houses along a road down to the beach which creates a village type atmosphere, with the sight of the blue ocean through the palm trees at the beach end of the village being truly amazing. A highlight for us is the superb range and variety of food, particularly the themed dinners, served either in the restaurant or alongside the pool or in the BBQ area adjacent to the beach.
