A very stylish, modern hotel. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. It has a very welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are spacious, very clean and well equipped. A leisurely swim in the heated pool leaves you very relaxed. The breakfast is a feast. An ambience that leaves you calm and rejuvenated, ready to explore your surroundings.

It’s nearly impossible to exceed the hospitality you encounter at this hotel, the owners as well as staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We felt very much at home and we would definitely recommend this very nice boutique hotel to everybody who is looking for an accommodation in Swakopmund (Namibia). It’s also worth to mention that the pool was heated and wifi was available throughout the hotel in an excellent quality, which is definitely not a given in Namibia (as we had realized during the first part of our journey). A big thank you for a wonderful time in Swakopmund, we are happy for anyone who has the chance to stay here in the future!

The hotel charged my card before they were allowed to over Booking.com and now I have problem getting it back after cancellation. For weeks they have been saying they have refunded me the money even though I have proof they have not.

We (my wife and I) stayed at Sam‘s for two nights before the corona-lockdown in parts of Namibia. Apart from our worries about how to get back to Germany, we enjoyed the hospitality of Sam and the cosiness of his hotel. We especially liked the excellent food in the evening (the fish! the wine!) and the beautiful garden in the afternoon. The centre of Swakopmund is only a 10minute-walk away, while you can park your car safely in the backyard of the hotel. I can recommend Sam‘s Giardino without any doubt (for when times are becoming normal again)!

Sam was wonderful and provided a lot of support and advice. He was really friendly and really made the hotel special. I also liked how home-y the lobby was. The front garden was beautiful as well. The rooms were pretty clean but it was a little tough to sleep because there wasn't a sheet, just a duvet which was warm. Overall would definitely recommend.
