I liked this small B&B in Swakopmund. It is only a few blocks away from the action, yet very quiet and with gated parking. The breakfast was excellent, and the room and grounds were more than adequate for our short stay. Very easy to find.

The room clean and comfortable. There are no TV in rooms but there is wifi. The garden setting is nice and the room I was in lead out to the garden through sliding doors. This will be great in summer. Dinner is a set menu and you can either have everything or separately as it individually priced. There is a... More

We had a very nice stay at Sam's Giardino. We booked a tripple room for three adults. The room was large enough for three beds and it was clean. The dinner at the hotel restaurant was very delicious and the wine was excellent. The staff was very friendly. It was a bit cold in the whole hotel but this was... More

Sam, the Swiss owner/host, has a real desire to please his customers. The rooms are very comfortable -the garden and communal areas, too. Dinner was a treat - lovely food and an extensive wine list. The breakfast selection was even more impressive. Sam also knows the best places to visit/tours to take/restaurants to eat at. To cap it all off,... More

Sam's was a very nice place to stay and had a really relaxing atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, including Sam himself! No beach view but very convenient to everything. We were in the "family room" which was nice, but you may want to know that the bathroom is open to the room and no door. However, the bathroom was... More

We stayed one night in Sam's Giardino, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The B&B is close to the town centre and a short drive/ walk to the beach front. The room was basic, yet very comfortable. We treated ourselves to Sam's 5 course dinner, accompanied by delicious wines. Sam is a wine enthusiast, and his collection is beyond impressive.... More

Sam's is a very relaxed place to enjoy perfect wines and dinners at a very reasonable price. It is a quiet oase on walking distance of the centre of Swakopmund. Personal interest and attention by the owner, make a stay at Sam's worthwhile. We would recommend this place in Swakopmund.

We spent one night at Sam's while passing through Swakopmund. The gardens were quiet and secluded and a welcome dose of greenery! The room itself was large, clean, and comfortable. Dinner and wine are highlights - Sam pays close attention to the details and quality. Breakfast was fantastic. Most places don't have restaurants, so it's great to find a place... More

Sam, thanks for prompt service, clean rooms, a good mattress, and friendly staff. I like your amazing bar and wine collection. And a lot of wood used inside the guest house, giving that warm feeling. The garden is beautiful and there's ample parking behind the buildings. The breakfast has a touch of Swiss character, it was very good. Especially the... More
