Peaceful Dark Skies
We stayed here for two nights and really loved the dark skies. Our balcony faces out into the desert and it was beautiful to see that first thing in the morning or late at night. Breakfast each morning was delicious and everyone is so helpful. The front desk helped us find an activity to fill some free time we had and even gave some advice for driving in Namibia. Besides the lodge, this is a nice town to drive around and get dinner. There was even a surprise food festival with a live band when we were walking around taking pictures.

Room with a view
Quirky lodge in stunning location overlooking the dunes. Individual, very spacious, comfortable and well equiped chalets, all with views over the desert. Great breakfast and friendly staff. Highly recommended, would definitely stay again.

Nice day. Andrea at the reception was wonderful. Not much to do in the immediate neighborhood. If the weather had cooperated we would’ve gone for a walk into the dunes which I suspect is wonderful.

Nice hotel in a quiet area
A nice hotel on the outskirts of town. The chelts are spacious with comfortable beds and an outdoor seating area overlooking the desert dunes. There is no restaurant here for evening meals but they do serve breakfast. It's not really an issues as Swakopmund town is only 5 minutes drive away and there's plenty of places to eat.

At the edge of town, a desert away
Our stay at at Desert Breeze, while short (1 night), was most enjoyable. The hotel is on the edge of a quiet neighborhood and looks upon the dunes. The dunes are quite small, but deceptive in the way they are sized against the landscape, giving the feeling you are in an expansive desert. The hotel itself was well equipped, comfortable, and the staff was exceptional. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Spectacular view
Individual chalets looking across the Swakopmund River and into the dunes. Absolutely amazing. The rooms are spacious, extremely comfortable, clean and very quiet. The excellent breakfast is buffet style for cold foods with a hot breakfast cooked as requested. The hotel is in the outskirts of Swakopmund requiring perhaps a 5 minute drive to get to the downtown. The quiet and the view more than made up for this most minor inconvenience.
