Staff was friendly and willing to go out of their way to make us comfortable. The breakfast was remarkable and once again the breakfast team went out of their way to serve us. It was a really nice stay and we want to thank The Delight team.

The hotel is super. Nice location. I certainly recommend. Well designed. Great rooms. Very spacious. Unfortunately I did have a food poisoning after consumption of Oysters with 40°C fever and the shivers (and more) the whole night. That's why I give only 3 stars out of 5.

Good day Eric123571113 Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We regret that you had an unfortunate experience after eating at The Delight Swakopmund. Please be assured that we do an extremely thorough quality check on our oysters, before we present them on our buffet. Apart from being put on ice on a continuous basis, oysters are only opened on request and never laid open for display. Furthermore the left over oysters after breakfast are always disposed off, as well as any oysters that look/smell slightly different from what they should. We keep strict protocol on cleaning and hygienic measures, as well as on covid-19 measures. We nevertheless hope to welcome you back to one of our lodges again, sometime in the future, and hope you had a wonderful stay with us. Kind regards Elke

I enjoyed my stay at your facility. However, please include the common drinks in your stock such as Jameson Select Reserve, Hennessy and Potency. Most people drink these brands but they are forever not part of Gondwana's stock list. And also your two twin beds in every room is a big turn off. Thank you

Looking for a great place to stay in Swakopmund, look no further than the Delight. It is well named because from the staff, and the accommodation, to the breakfasts, the bar service and the decor, it was all a delight. I really liked the decor, which was very funky. The hotel is well located and the staff were friendly and very helpful
