Nice resort away from the crowds

London, United Kingdom

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.

Attention to detail beyond compare

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 dessert the kitchen staff had baked a beautifully decorated, personalised cake and even though we had left the dining area, had this wonderful gift delivered to our room! Their attention to detail has forever embedded our anniversary weekend in our hearts and memories and we thank the kind, friendly, pleasant and gentle staff at the Pinewood Resort and Hotel for making this occasion even more special. Asante Sana! We look forward to our next visit with you.
