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!

We really enjoyed our stay at this place. The rooms came out really nice, the breakfast had an excellent variety and the staff was very friendly. On arrival and on departure they were very helpful with the luggage.

We stayed for 3 nights at the recently refurbished Swakopmund Sands. Located almost opposite the beach, you are a few moments stroll away from the Jetty & the Tug restaurants although a slightly longer walk into town. Having arrived from a Wilderness Camp in Damaraland the retro décor was a slight assault on the senses as was the open plan... More

We stayed here for two nights on a small group tour. We were lucky to get a large, recently refurbished suite which was superb. Stanford, who was on reception, was amazing. He organised everything we wanted, restaurant bookings, taxis, drinks, etc., and always with a happy smile. The good breakfast was served in a bright airy room, a good way... More
