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

This is a very nice hotel which is situated on the bay of Walvis Bay. The rooms are comfortable and the rates are reasonable. Free WIFI. Breakfast is good. I cannot comment on other meals as I ate at nearby restaurants.

I love Walvis Bay but it is really difficult to find great accommodation. On my previous business trip I stayed at the Protea in town which was aweful, this was definitely a step up. Staff were friendly and the food was average but the rooms felt like they needed a good clean. The duvets are full of lumps! Overall not... More

Stayed for two nights while exploring the coast up to Cape Cross. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room spacious and very clean. Locality superp and we were able to watch the flamingoes from our room. Were too early on the road to stay for Breakfast but had Dinner both nights and they were most satisfying. Other restaurants in close proximity.... More

Good hotel in front of the beach and near of the seaport. In one hundred meters far from the hotel you have four restaurants with views of the Atlantic Ocean. Clean, free wi-fi and medium size rooms. Also you have a nice restaurant and one lounge to have a meeting or some beers.

Stayed here in connection with transit from a ship. Very nice hotel direct to the seafront. Close by is a restaurant/bar buildt out on the water. Clean and cozy rooms. Nice breakfast with eggstation. Friendly staff. Only minus was a bit of truble with the keycards.

I was there with some friends . The hotel is at the right place , with great view to the bay and the flamingoes. Rooms are clean and the room is nice. I strongly recommend that hotel if you are around.
