On our photographic journey through Namibia we stayed for one night at Protea Hotel Pelican. Our main objective was to photograph the flamingoes in the Walvis Bay. The Hotel is located right on the boardwalk, allowing opportunity for scenic strolls or jogging in the morning. The rooms were neat and well laid out. The linens were clean and crisp. There... More

the rooms have great views especially the sea facing ones...i think the rooms could be a better and a bit more comfortable and better decorated though....they need to have more suites though for those who require a bit more to be comfortable

Nice hotel, not stayed in this chain before but we wanted the location. Room had great sea views, standard hotel room really, nice big bed and clean. Had dinner there one night as everything in town was shut, standard buffet but nice enough. Would stay again.

I stayed at Protea Pelican Bay for a one week work trip. I can't say much for Walvis Bay- beautiful bay area but it's a cardboard town in the desert. The hotel staff make this place - friendly and always helpful. I had a room facing the bay with a small balcony- beautiful views and clean. Nothing special but adequate... More

So after a looooong time travelling I finally arrived at Walvis Bay. A town that simply pops out of no where as the dunes meet the coast. When I pulled up at the hotel the outside looked lovely and the reception was bright and staff very helpful. I got to my room on the ground floor weary and ready for... More

Nice Basic hotel By the sea with own terrance. Rooms were not too fancy but okey. There was free wi-fi only in the rooms the signal was quite weak. Close to the hotel you could find flamingos and Pelicans at the beach in the Morning and evening.

The Protea hotel, Pelican Bay has a great location on the edge of the water, close to the yacht club and shops of the waterfront area, and to the Raft restaurant. Unfortunately the air conditioning in the room wasn't working, and neither was the internet they claimed to have. I would stay there again, for the location and pleasant staff,... More

Please note that this opinion is based on just 2 nights stay. The main value of this hotel is its great location, right on the bay beach. From the room large window we enjoyed nice views, with flamingos and other sea birds very close to the premises. Our room was large and clean, but when we looked for the air... More

The view is worth the price of the stay and the restaurants close by are wonderful every time. It was basically quiet due to the limited number of guests when I was there. If you need internet then stay elsewhere. They claim to have wi-fi but in my 3 stays here it has never worked in the room and only... More

My wife and I stay have stayed at this hotel 3 times in the past. It is a comfortable hotel with nice sized rooms with each of the rooms having a lagoon view which is spectacular with both sunrise and sunset. Reception is always welcoming. Breakfast is good with an fairly good cold buffet choice with warm food on order.... More
