8/10 Very good

A bit overpriced, but it's a new property, so everything is spotlessly clean and the décor is spot on. The incredibly friendly and helpful staff make this place with the stay. That, and the outdoor patio area, which must be lovely in the summertime. If I were they, I would capitalise on that space by opening a small bar.

Relaxing and memorable
The hotel is n very good location, opposite the sea and a walking distance to the town and all the aminities. The breakfast is great and really delicious. My journey was memorable.

Beautiful Hotel in a Great Location
We loved this hotel. It was all newly renovated with great decor and very comfortable rooms. We arrived late and our key and the wifi password were waiting for us with the security guard. Its a good idea to tell them if you will arrive after 9 pm when the front desk is closed. The hotel was right across the street from the aquarium and the beach and right next to the dunes to the south of Swakop. It's in a really great location and the staff were amazing and helpful but not overbearing. The daily breakfast buffet was divine. The laundry service was very fast and affordable. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Nice staff and excellent location.
Excellent Location and Nice Staff. I forgot clothes in the room and they phoned my right away and put a warning written on my car windshield... I just need to pass by the reception and get my things back. Very honest people and very kind service.
