I have been to Pineland for 4 days in Spring 2013. It was one of the most amazing experience I had in my life. First of all, being in all this lovely nature gave me such positive vibes. I have many pains in my neck and back. The moment I stepped in the compound, my neck pain diminished. I felt the fresh air and scent of trees all over me. I felt so much liberated.
The welcoming was so warm and very helpful. People at the reception are so nice, sweet and explain anything you want. I chose for my stay a bedroom in the main hotel facing the mountains. As soon as I entered the room, the whole mountain full of Pine Trees was in front of me. I loved the room and I felt very comfortable. They made me also visit the caves and villas which are other options to stay in Pineland. The caves are a piece of art. They can be suitable for a couple looking for a space of love and also for families. It is far from any noise and just surrounded by nature. As for the villas, they can be a great escape for a big family with children.
Many activities are available for the residents of the hotel, caves and villas like outdoor gym, indoor gym, basket ball, tennis court, amazing playground for kids, indoor and outdoor swimming pool. In my case, I enjoyed the indoor and outdoor gym. When I used te machines in the outdoor gym, I felt one with the valley and mountain and trees. It was as if I am exercising with the nature. I would really advice it for anyone staying here.
Walking in the whole compound, make you feel you are simply in another world.
As for the food, it is very delicious and the portions are very generous. The service is great and fast.
I can say that the whole stay gave me hope, smiles, happiness, and made me feel more alive especially being so grateful for giving me the opportunity to be in Pineland.
I would advice it to all, couples, family, friends or single. The journey is simply outstanding.
If you are single a room facing the mountain would be great. If you are a couple, the cave would be...

Dear Sana C,

Thank you so much for such a beautiful and detailed review you've left us here on our TripAdvisor page! I believe you were in close contact with Jana, one of our Front Office Supervisor's who sends her absolute best to you and thanks you deeply for leaving us such a wonderful review!
Personally I am so grateful the vast amount of detail you've expressed, especially regarding our staff who do what they do from their heart--I don't like to use that terminology loosely but it is really nothing but the truth that I witness everyday--actually it's the best part of my day and motivates me personally to continue to excel at what we do here at Pineland.
I love that you loved your mountain view room. Being that we're always seeing the same views day in and day out here at Pineland, it is people like you that remind us just how beautiful of a location we are in and how important it is to preserve these vast forests for generations to come.
I am so sorry about the pain in your neck and back--I believe Jamil at our room service told me how grateful he was to have the chance to speak with you about it and how you expressed so much relief to him during your time with us. We both know that health is THE most important thing in life and I hope that the positive vibes you've gained from your time with us will continue to flourish in your life as you heal and get better. How else are we going to see you again? =)
Thank you for mentioning our vast activities, especially the outdoor gym which we call our "Nature Fitness Center" which from my understanding is the first of its kind here in Lebanon--this was brought as an idea during my life in the United States where my county wanted to tackle obesity and so they provided these machines so that citizens could more easily access exercise machines. With a small twist of nature and beautiful views I am delighted to know how much you enjoyed them during your time with us.
May you always live in good health and only the best of spirits.
Welcome to the family here at Pineland.
My Warmest Regards,
