Heavenly Location

Portsmouth, United Kingdom

Another wonderful, unforgettable 8 night stay at Pinewood, our 5th visit in 7 years, and the high standards have remained for all visits. The food is superb, being buffet meals for breakfast and dinner, while a great menu selection is available at the beach pool side. The buffet breakfast is served at Bahari restaurant, lunch is available at Jahazi restaurant at the beach, plus the poolside, whilst dinner alternates between the Bahari restaurant, Poponi beach restaurant, and around the pool for Mongolian evenings, which is exceptionally good. For that pleasant pre-dinner/after dinner drinks, there is the lounge bar at the Jahazi restaurant, and the beach bar. A great variety of drinks available, from cold beers to speciality Kenya cocktails ..... Simba being one for tough people! And the accommodation, we have stayed in garden suites, and first floor rooms with balconies, all very spacious, tasteful decor, mosquito nets, and air conditioning. Rooms are made up every day, with pleasant welcoming flower displays on the beds. Rooms/suites are in individual blocks, accessed from a pleasant street walk from the reception to the beach, and all surrounded by landscaped gardens. At the beach area there are plenty of sunbeds, with plenty of shaded areas, and open sunny areas, with towels provided by friendly cheery staff. At the pool area, again there are plenty of sunbeds, some with shades, and a swim-up bar for a cool drink in the shade. And the staff at Pinewood - every member we came in contact with were polite, always had a smile, and a cheery 'Jambo' to greet you. And even after a couple of years between visits, the regular staff members remembered us, and in particular Pamela the Front of House manage, such a lovely, friendly person. One thing is for sure, there will defiantly be a sixth visit in the not too distant future.
