Very small hotel. The rooms are always dreierweise of bungalows spread. The resort is very well maintained and very clean. We were now the 2. the pinewood and we had the feeling, that the service and the quality of the food was improved. Wi-fi at the pool bar and in the hotel lobby was very good. read hotel review

    A normal standard room was perfectly adequate. Very good bed with mosquito net. Large bathroom and a very large balcony. (respect for monkeys). Doors and windows only secure open. In the room there was a water heater with the coffee or tea making facilities. Coffee, tea, sugar and milk powder Are provided. As all-inclusive guests every day 3 bottles of water in the mini bar provided.

    The food choice is not huge, but what was offered was delicious. Twice in the week at the beach grill and once per week there was at the pool bar fresh dishes from the wok.

    The service was amazing. ( also without tips). No matter, whether in the restaurant or on the beach every wish was fulfilled. The room cleaning was perfect. One should have any lack there discover, the within 1 hour.

    At the beach and at the pool there were always enough free seats. For sports enthusiasts, as i, there is a fitness room with very good equipment. Twice a week there is also an event after dinner at the beach bar. You must not have. Don't bother us but not at all. Condition of the beach chairs at the beach and at the pool is very good.

    Location from the airport was only about 30 kilometer. but through the bad streets, incredible traffic and the trip with the ferry you can with a transfer time of 2a 3 hours. The hotel is only for guests, who looks for absolute silence. To the next shopping center you should take a taxi.

The pinewood hotel is a somewhat smaller hotel. The complex is really nice with lots of trees, plants and so on. The staff is very friendly and around the welfare of the guests. The rooms are relatively very large and the beds are very comfortable. On the left and right from the hotel on the beach is for the most part. Garbage, but that is not the problem of the hotel. The section directly in the hotel is well maintained and was also cleaned. read hotel review

We can not understand, why this hotel or this area so a lot of positive comments. If you only Turkey holiday is used then is this hotel of course an increase ☺ In particular: - the hotel beach was unfortunately completely with garbage clutter, general very dirty and strong nature-(see photos). Only rarely to the temperatures the beach visit. As soon as you into the water wanted came right a scharr of obstrusive traders to, a drangsalierten. - the aircon in the room left unfortunately not regulate and was dated. Either ran this in full swing or you switched them. ... A remote control to regulate gave it according to reception. So you could relax in the evening choose from, whether you have a loud noise of the airconditioning or with the oppressive heat was trying to sleep. - the staff is tried the guests something to offer, but there were almost everyday the same almost foodlastige food. One came around midday at the bar so slept the staff occasionally with the head on the bar. The preparation of the promise of cocktails was also totally off the mark. You ordered a whiskey sour so you get a large glass of about 0.3 liters of lemon juice with a whiskey; a Daiquiri one gets pineapple juice with rum. Then during dinner you can get the menu from the previous evening, the partly handwritten changed. Sadly you could the written not decipher. There were also only rare plates or asked if we wanted something to drink. These are clear management! The staff is this no fault! - bugs in tropischne regions are well known, but you need not in the meal; partly was the whole bread and coffee station with cockroaches be overlooked. - at the swimming pool were a lot of broken tiles and water drainage were open. Sharp tiles by the pool, what is unfortunately not at all (high danger of injury!) - chairs and tables were old, weathered and shook. The only highlight was the food, as we Germany from already booked-it was really fantastic. read hotel review

Too much pinewood - too few Kenya

The pinewood village beach resort is a relatively small and neatly arranged area in the Galu Beach. The rooms offer a very private atmosphere, which i liked a great deal. On the first glance everything seemed very orderly and plush designed. Unfortunately showed on the 2. view but some faults: there was little storage space and storage space for clothes and so on. I have the room alone occupied, but couples remains nothing other than 'out of a suitcase' life. On the balcony there were no possibility wet clothes to dry. The balkontüre could not be left unattended remain opened ..., since the monkeys will be charged this opportunity used to the room to inspect and sugar or milk powder 'dustbin'. I would here but not as a point of criticism espanol, because in Afrika life just monkeys. Hakuna matata! What me more bother us was, that the balcony door due to lack of detent very bad again was to close and the fingernails including very suffering. Normally i am such things do not disturb, but here i also the value for money! In the bathroom i have a ' klo'bürste missed. Emphasized should be free internet access in the room, cable could at the front desk without additional costs be borrowed. The rent for the safe was relatively expensive. The food was ok, for breakfast not the choice as in larger hotels but there is something for everybody. The 'head chef' was the whole day by the complex for the guests to eat to entertain. Certainly well-intentioned, but sometimes a bit annoying. Drink prices however again quite reasonable. My feeling. The entire staff was very hard to please the guests and are always present. The settlement system with the many labels seemed to me however, for both the staff, as well as for the guests despite modern technology very time-consuming to be. Because the hotel not on a asphalted street, not reachable by bus and relatively far from the next supermarket and other shopping is a trip from the hotel out just by cab possible and accordingly expensive. But if you only want to relax, is a quiet and beautiful beach for swimming and walk, almost without disturbance by the notorious' beach boys ', with very friendly and kind, always around the guests endeavored service. Conclusion: only relaxation and recovery search in the pinewood to feel certainly well. Who but also on the land and people interested is should better another hotel choose. read hotel review

Who peace in informal environment with a dream beach and little boys are looking for, is right at home here. For much action and action absolutely unsuitable. Food is through the strange spices partly very habituation needy and the diversity is not with large attachments comparable. There are lunch super fresh pizza at the beach, where one also the ingredients can. Unfortunately, that it lobster also in all-inclusive only for an extra charge of 26 Euro! -and the indian ocean. Also scampi in vain. But you absolute peace and almost no people. When we were there, there were just about ... 30 guests in the small facilities. But the most beautiful were the monkeys, the every day around 17° hours when we came. The we had daily with Leibnitz mini biscuits fed. They were really friendly. The we miss the most. read hotel review

The pinewood village resort has only 51 room and is reminiscent of a small village in the middle of nature and directly at the beach. The garden is beautiful, full of ancient trees and exotic plants. You feel good straight away very familiar. The people, who work there. Just after arriving we were greeted by the guest relation managerin Pamela mshai welcomed in a friendly manner. It is always for all of the guest there and spread a good mood. The rooms are in one-story villas. On the ground floor of each villa, there is a large apartment with a ... large terrace and wonderful of high quality african decor. In this apartments/suites also has a separate kitchen and you can get a private cook book. He/she cooks then every evening private food only for the guests of the particular apartments. On the 1. floor are 2 room with a balcony. These are small and simple decorated. Outside jump during the day 2 various affenarten rum and are very funny but also rude. Should not one will. The balcony door should always closed, otherwise the monkeys purely and sugar and milk, the in every room next to the coffee machine are. Apart from that the monkeys not aggressive and not dangerous. By the pool the always exactly at 15 o'clock congregated, then tea time with marmorkuchen and this is from apes loved. Then the really close by and try the cakes from the plate to steal. The pool is in the middle of of the garden, is very clean and nice. There is enough chairs. There is always peace and pleasant mood. In the pool is a pool bar which from 10 to 18 o'clock is open. Here and in the lobby is wifi free of charge. By the pool you can also excellent lunch food. Two chefs ready here fresh pasta, salads, burgers and other specialities. Delicious. Also you can the food at the beach get served. There are very nice waiter and two times a week there are dinner in the tent at the beach, wonderful, The restaurant is in the main building, all around artificial lake with hundreds of carp and from the water grow trees on which wonderful yellow birds sit (s. pictures). You can see that always for breakfast. Wonderful. Breakfast is english, so no wide selection of cheese and sausage like in Germany. There is itself geackene breads, even whole wheat bread and delicious sweet particles. The coffee and tea are kenyan export, therefore be good. There are also fresh egg dishes prepared and wonderful waffles from vollkornteig! The fresh fruit is the crowning. Such mangos gives it only in the tropics! The chef is mr. Dickson. This is a chef the only one in the sense that every guest tastes and goes well. I after a safari the stomach easily spoiled and was careful with food. He has noticed, has me and proposed, that i see it as a bad diet cooks to me better, it did for two days and has thereby giving me super good helped. The food is great, super hygienic and tastes amazing. The whole kitchen crew is wonderful. There is monday mongolian buffet by the pool. Here live cooked and african music made, wonderful. The beach is very beautiful, clean-white sand and clear water, Since this hotel in a bay a little bit farther away from other large hotels is, there is no rush of boys to watch. It is only 4 stable seller of souvenirs with a small hut there. The must the hotel but do not enter. Gästestrukrur -mostly english, australians, swiss and a few german. Very pleasant. Evenings you can tasty cocktails in the hotel bar drink. All together we took our 2. home and many friends in east africa found \u263a It is these unique nice, helpful, industrious, humorous and pleasant people like mrs mshai or mr., dickson, the this hotel mind. We are absolutely thrilled and recommend the hotel at all, who like a sophisticated quiet vacation in a real african ambience with great service would like to spend. We would definitely come again!

A small and fine hotel with weaknesses in the details. For the now very high price you could expect more and get. Breakfast is not comparable with the bigger hotels. The room decor is not 4 stars. It is large and well maintained but that was it already. Safety deposit box only for an extra charge, tv not at all available. Nearby the reception there is a tv where you a bit of the world can hear, if not a kenyan channel walking distance. The beach is good, but in the sea swimming at this point not or only very ... difficult. Ring around the hotel is nothing! I mean nothing! You can very long walk along the beach and with a little luck you had also no beach boy at the heels, if one of the best places on french replies. A real infrastructure is nearby from the hotel not available. Holiday food Robinson Crusoe only with more service. The tops the hotel: very clean, 2 affenfamilien for entertainment concerns. Spa area (extra cost) good food in the evening. The flops the hotel: secluded location, furnishing of the rooms, infrastructure and ultimately the price. Please note, that it to the airport about 2 hours takes. read hotel review

The hotel has a manageable location, which I clearly see advantage. Here everything is really done, so that the guest feel comfortable and relaxed. The rooms are for our taste relatively simply furnished, however everything is clean and functional. We booked full board and these found than adequate. Pleasant was, that a completely mixed guest structure is, both the age, as well as from the nationalities. read hotel review

    We had a suite, which we with our children share. The place was really sufficient. The beds were every day lovingly with flowers. Bathroom was clean, the towels quite worn, but everything very simply and tastefully. No tv in the room, we did not also miss. Air conditioning available, but we always only short turned on.

    Already alone the premises are a dream. The open dining room is directly at a small pond with koi and webervögeln. But also the quality of the dishes is excellent. A highlight is the dinner at the beach and the dinner by the pool with candlelight! The selection is good and it was actually also always something for the european tastebuds a court available

    Because of the entertainment you should definitely not the pinewood choose. The majority of the guests are for relaxation there. There is entertainers, but the large action does not take place. The pool is really nice, but not exceptional, the beach is really wonderful and well maintained. The obligatory beach boys are of course on available, we find disturbing, but not really unpleasant

The rooms are for our taste relatively simply furnished, however everything is clean and functional. We booked full board and these found than adequate. Pleasant was, that a completely mixed guest structure is, both the age, as well as from the nationalities.

    The location is probably the biggest fault the pinewood. Although it is on a beautiful part of the Diani beach, but otherwise there is really nothing at all. Unfortunately this lonely location from the hotel-management exploited, so you for everything, which one because of the distance to the stores not get a excessive price all nights will be charged.

Small but fine hotel! If you rather small and informal and who rather peace and relaxation searches, is right at home here! The hotel is rather off the beaten track location (therefore also no good shops). There is no loud and disturbing animation. Situated on the powdery white sands of sandy beach this hotel there is less disturbance by 'seller' as in the larger hotels. The food is very good and varied. The staff are very hard-working and extremely friendly. Altogether really recommendable! read hotel review

The pinewood village from us as port/ relaxation-hotel after our safari (very, very good. Can We recommend to anyone. Booked with chirat tours directly in Diani Beach) used. For this purpose it was very good Suitable. Live two different monkeys families in the hotel. Very entertaining. Also exceptional: the suite could have a cooking -service without additional charge to use. A cook prepared A 3-course menu in the suite ( with a kitchen) individually. Therefore 6 stars for the food. Audience rather older. Quiet and secluded. Unfortunately had the hotel landscaped diving school closed. Disadvantage: because the hotel very remotely ... located, can only with the taxi into town / for shopping. Very expensive. read hotel review

If you from the stress of everyday life will, the can be it in this hotel. No disco, no animations, etc. Pure relaxation, an oasis of peace. I felt like in paradise. A manageable complex with 20 small small house the left and right on the way to the beach is possible. Each small house has three rooms, that means a suite with a terrace and two rooms on the first floor. The rooms are nicely furnished and the bed is equipped with a mosquito net surrounded. Every day were fresh Blooms on the bed decorated and fresh flowers were ... in the vase in the bathroom and on the table. Drinks in the room were always available. Everything was always very clean. The garden area is very well maintained and looks like a paradise. I had rarely such a friendly and lovely staff experienced, as in the Pinewood village. What the food subject, so it was varied and in good taste and if one special wishes had, so they were met. Also the spa area offers a lot at, for example full-body massages with aromatherapy, I twice for 60 minutes could enjoy, equally one can make one's hair clean leave. Never the staff were pushy. I have pinewood in my heart. All together, I'm thrilled this small paradise and I will definitely me there again next year arrive. Many thanks to Pinewood village.

We are last year also in the hotel been. The hotel is small and quiet, total relaxation. This year we were first in the hotel Diani reef, where we much better we liked and then, after the safari, again at pinewood village. What we can say is: generally, the prices risen, but the quality not. Here is one at the end the world. There is no shops nearby. So, you have to get everything in the hotel buy, or a lot of money for taxi are charged. That was last year not at all so bad, because the prices in ... the hotel still acceptable were. Unfortunately, we are not more. read hotel review

    Directly at the beach. To us simply brilliant still only little boys but all very pleasant and it was fun with them to act. The beach is served each morning from the gartenjungs for us seaweed cleaned. One can kilometres away walking, a dream. If you however shop want to go the hotel is a bit far from the action, the taxi is the best choice depending on your negotiating skills you pay then circa 25€, however therefor you can then shop as you like, of a then from a to b and back. There are bars, shopping center and so on of course not according to our expectations but is ok.

The hotel organized also anytime again trips to a nearby school, even on this drive you can get to the shop. the hotel lies on a dream beach, white and fine sand as powder. Wei it is out of the way, there are only a few beach boys. You can unhindered hour long at the beach go for a stroll. We really enjoyed. in the hotel garden it is very nice cats, Rabbits, turtles, a fish pond, sometimes very loud frogs, Weber birds, monkeys and Colobusaffen. Also otherwise still very beautiful colorful Birds and lizards. Sometimes get evenings at the bar a crab. we loved it great

    Bahari-main restaurant: dreamlike, nearby the lobby laid out, with a natural swimming pond, where you also in the open food. All around tropical flowers and plants. Unfortunately, there are few tables in the openthe claim at the beginning around 19 hours at the food. Please note: the monkeys are everywhere in the trees. You also jump on the tables and get for example bananas, Toasts, and so on Nothing left unattended! restaurant at the beach: twice per week barbecue- simply great! 1 time per week Mongo lian Barbecue by the pool-brilliant! for lunch you can stay in a other restaurant at the beach direct at the beach food. Dreamlike view of the see! the quality and quantity the food left nothing to be desired. everything was clean and hygienic with a lot of love decorated. Pretty decorations. It is also Indian evening, Swahili evening. tip is all very welcome. The employees earn very little.

Umbrellas there are however only 7. the loungers by the pool or at the beach are equipped with thick cushions, the comfortable. The hotel has us a bit disappointed, whereas the GALU beach beautiful as a beach resort in diani beach to be. To say that the locals. There was extremely much seaweed in the sea, although the gardener every day the beach. The beach itself was very wide and white sand of the finest. You can very beautiful long walks on the beach make. Advantage for diani beach: there are only a few beach GALU beach boys. In diani beach You will be surrounded by this and that is extremely annoying! For swimming the sea wasn't very ideal. Although a reef lying off, it is due to the strong wind blew always very restless. There were hardly any people in the water.
