I've been visiting Namibia on a quarterly basis for some fourteen years and have stayed in most of the reputable establishments in Windhoek, Walvis bay and Swakopmund. The first thing that I noticed was the friendliness and the obviously superior level of service that the staff of Swakopmund Sands gave to me. Someone has obviously provided great training, as the...

Booked three nights over the New Year period. Arrived to find the room I got wasn't anything like beautiful looking rooms on the net but looked more like a dungeon, with 12sqm of floor space and a one tiny window. None of the rooms had aircon, so the place was very hot and stuffy in the December heat. The new...

Conveniently located within walking distance of the beach and top restaurants, including the famous Tiger Reef. Explore Swakopmund on foot from here. Rooms are luxurious and service top notch. I will definitely return.

Booked 3nts via Booking.com. Hotel and rooms looked really nice online. Online photos unfortunately far removed from reality. Room 8 was a tiny box with one small window and no a.c; very uncomfortable. The following day moved to a lovely room above the laundry, just to find the internet wasnt working. The courteous and friendly staff unfortunately didn't make up...

Will stay again, Clean, beautiful garden outside. Free breakfast, but we didn't get chance to eat., because 9:30 finish it's too early with kids to woke up when you are in vacation. Will be nice if was up to 10:30 serving the breakfast.

Pleasantly surprised by this small quaint hotel next to the sea in Swakopmund. We had the villa which is a little cottage next to ( and part of ) the Hotel. The rooms are equipped with enough plugs and with comfortable beds. The showers and bathrooms were modern and adequate. The hotel serves a decent breakfast in the morning and...

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in October. We had an excellent stay. The rooms were clean and well appointed, excellent breakfast and free espresso coffee in the lobby. The only downside was the lobby being locked overnight & our room overlooked the entrance which made it noisy. Kaylene was an excellent host.

After hours of driving from the Namib desert we were happy to find this hotel in a quiet environnement close to the sea (not traffic). A staff member cleaned our luggage as they were full of dust from the road, pity we couldn't find this person later on to tip him ! The rooms were pleasant and nicely decorated but...

Located close to the sea front and the Swakopmund town center, this hotel did not hit any high notes. From a disinterested owner to a rusty and mouldy shower tray, the hotel did not inspire. On the upside were cheerful and helpful staff, a good breakfast and a clean room. Our room, number 3, was a bit small and cramped....
