Couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay and the most perfect wedding on the grounds of the hotel. Everything was perfect. AMAZING. Thanks to Moses, Justice, Nimrod, Mr C, Raphael, Mary, Bernard, Mohammed, Duncan and the list goes on. Thank you. xxxxxx

This Hotel is so fantastic and quiet. We loved our stay in room 151. All the staff are so helpful and sweet, we really felt welcome at Pinewood. The beach is very nice and there are not many beach-boys. So if you like a quiet hotel and just relaxing this is the place for you...

I absolutely cannot fault my stay at Pinewood, it was beyond exceptional. I booked 3 nights here as a last minute decision through my tour operator Gamewatchers after a safari, and I truly wish I had stayed longer. Upon arrival I was greeted by a fruit cocktail and shown to my room by the manager, who informed me I had... More

Attractive setting, comfortable room with air conditioning and well serviced, good food (plenty of it) and different themed dinners for variety. Staff are attentive and generally friendly - though a few were rather too interested in why a woman should be travelling on her own! (not a problem while I was on safari) Pool and beach area are well tended,... More

We ended our 2013 holiday with a few nights at Pinewood and wished we had stayed there longer. We decided to spend our whole Feb 2014 holiday at Pinewood following a stressful year and glad we did return. The hotel is small and quiet, it is rather isolated with not a great deal of entertainment in the evenings. BUT if... More

This hotel was described to us by imagine Africa as a boutique hotel. However it definitely isn't. It is a nice hotel which is good for families with pool, buffet style themed meals (each night is a different theme like Chinese, Swahili, beach barbecue etc and its always a buffet). There's a big flat screen tv in the communal area... More

Pinewood is a fantastic place and I have been there 3 times already. I do go back each time because their guest service is one of the best in Diani and they are always ready to please. However, every time I return, I find their food standard is deteriorating, especially the vegetarian side of things. I last stayed at Pinewood... More

We are now visiting Pinewood Beach Resorts & Spa for the second time. This place is an excellent place with super friendly staff, nice food, cosy rooms....things are just great! Its amazing that the staff remember our children with name from last time - that means that they see every person as individuals. The pool is good, both for families... More

Tucked in one of the best beaches I have seen at the South Coast, Pinewood Beach Resort and Spa completely blew my mind. From the great location, pristine white sandy beaches and welcoming staff, I could not have found a better place to enjoy the magical African sunset. I would be doing it injustice by tying to explain the whole... More

Dear Edwin, many thanks for your review on Trip Advisor, it is always so rewarding to hear comments from our guests. You are quite right in your comments on the beach, who would have thought such a white sandy (empty) beach existed so close civilization. Please do return to see us again we would be genuinely pleased to look after... More

The Pinewood Beach Hotel & SPA is one of the last properties on the 'Diani' coast, more precisely at Galu Beach, 40 kms south of Mombasa. The hotel sits on a rather small piece of land, allowing only a few front bungalows a view to the sea. The garden is well-manicured but small with interesting plants and flowers. A huge... More
