The beach was clean and had a variety of games to play on it such as volleyball and soccer. The rooms were all airconditioned and hygenic.... More

The resort if beautifully located and set out and the team are incredibly friendly and nothing is too much bother for them to organise or sort out. All areas were kept very clean and the rooms are welcoming and personal. There's always plenty to do (if you want) from the hotel be it safari trips out or snorkelling, scuba diving... More

We are so pleased that we didn't let politicians and the media put us off travelling to Kenya. This was the holiday of a life time and more than lived up to expectations. After visiting the Rift Valley and Masai Mara we spent 5 glorious days at Pinewood. What bliss. The setting is magical. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious... More

After 6 days on safari we were very ready for some chill-out time and Pinewood was just magical. It is a small hotel down an unmade road about 15 minutes drive from Ukunda airstrip. The rooms are laid out in small buildings either side of a path that leads down to the pool and beach. The staff are so friendly... More
