Very nice boutique hotel, easy to find and close to the beach. The reception was very friendly and the staff helpful. If I knew what I know now we would have stayed longer than 1 night. Definitely a place to come back to

The room was generously proportioned and very comfortable. The service was great from reception to breakfast staff. Only 2 complaints though - 1. There was no aircon. I visited in winter and the room as cold. 2. Instead of 2 couches, i would prefer a desk to work at and only 1 couch.

Congratulations to all the Swakopmund Sands team. The service was really good, and even they offered me much more than expected. Especially Helena and Selma are really nice and helpful. They have a very good tourist information service.

We were fortunate to be upgraded to the Superior room which is a suite and is everything we needed. The staff were very focused on providing an excellent service and were so friendly, courteous and helpful. The location is great and close to a number of very good restaurants, the beach and promenade and other places of interest. We would certainly go there again if the opportunity arose.

I stayed for > 7 days in one of the seaside cottage rooms, which was very cute and I loved the idea of a separate kitchen isle and sitting room, even though I never used it as coffee and tea were available in the rooms and reception area. The only negative points during my stay were the soundproofing and the non-detachable shower head, but I guess these are personal preferences. In short, I would stay there again.

This hotel is a little tired but in a good location close to the ocean The room is small and dated....but it has a refrigeration and a decent shower. They also provide 2 complementary beers and water. The bathroom weirdly does not have any electrical light. I had to use my cell phone.l at night..

I got booked in to the little house on the corner at first, i did not enjoy that so i was moved to the main building. I suppose the house on the corner is great if you are a tourist or backpacker, i guess i just needed a bit more space. They happily moved me to the main part of the hotel. Rooms are very clean and service is great. Also very peaceful. I love their coffee machine in the lounge. We became good friends
