We found the Swakopmund Sands Hotel to be in a perfect location for us! We could walk to the beach, the downtown area for shopping and coffee shops, as well it is not far from the open craft market for souvenirs. The room was clean and had a large enough safe where we could, at least get some of our... More

We went to Swakopmundo because we wanted to visit the Skeleton Coast and the Dunes. The reviews were good so we decided to try out this hotel. I must say it was worth it!!! The Reception desk was extremely helpful and knowledgable of the area. They booked tours and restaurants for us and we weren't disappointed with their choices. The... More

Swakopmund Sands Hotel provided great comfort mid-way through my Namibian safari. It has a sleek, contemporary interior design & just about every convenience you could want. Best of all, it is just half a block from the beachfront. I could hear the waves crashing even though I didn't have windows on the seafront. As for the room, it was very... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The hotel is situated close to the beach and in walking distance of very good restaurants. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Good security and modern decorated rooms in a quiet area of town. Breakfast is a good spread of fruits, cereal, eggs, toast, cold meats, croissants, cheese, etc.... More

We were allocated the Royal Ruby Suite, which may have been the best room in the hotel. It has its own balcony, together with a 'secret' bathroom which you find at the behind a wardrobe door. The lighting in the bathroom was like something out of a film set - surreal. We had the use of a kitchen as well,... More

My husband, 1.9 month old daughter had a lovely time. The stairs to the eating hall was a bit challenging with a toddler however breakfast was delicious. The staff were friendly. The beds are bit worn out and towels too. It's a beautiful hotel, and walking distance to the beach and central town. It was ideal for us. Thank you!

We held a 50 pax conference at the Swakopmund Sands Hotel in March 2014. As a conference venue it was fantastic - the room, equipment and service were perfect - and the food (tea breaks and lunch) was the best we have ever had at a conference. Honestly ... a fabulous venue for a conference. Definitely recommended.

We had our wedding in Swakopmund, and I stayed here for 2 nights as bride to be. Dewet and his team were great, accommodating us in any way possible and we appreciate it. From slippers and robes in the rooms(room was luxurious and spacious, wow!), to the view from my balcony, everything was stunning. Thanks for everything, will surely recommend!
