We had as a group with 6 persons a separate part of the hotel where we could get together without anyone else. That was very nice and comfortable. Good service, nice rooms, friendly stuff, no long way to the city.

Its definitely one of my best spots to stay. Only discomfort is that there is no pool or Jacuzzi to relax after hours. Sometimes one doesn't need to go place but relax at your place and that's where is prefer Seaside instead

Stayed at the "Sands" for 2 nights. Staff at check-in and checkout were pleasant and ready to assist. Rooms are tastefully themed, well appointed and beds are comfortable. My only problem was with the shower in the bathroom which didn't drain well enough and would leave the floor wet after a shower. note the hotel doesn't have a restaurant, and... More

No one told me I would be sharing with other people going to different places. The driver picked up others and we diverted in Walvis Bay to drop them off. I told the receptionist... More

The Swakopmund Sands Hotel is neatly positioned at the end of Strand Street 200m away from the Jetty. You can easily walk over to the Tug Restaurant and the Jetty 1905 Restaurant. Sunsets are incredible. You're just a stone's throw from the beach.

A lovely experience - service and facilities top class. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The only difficulty was trying to contact the hotel to make the reservation as the numbers are not listed in the telephone directory. Was forced to "phone a friend" to get the contact details.

Good Hotel, Nice Location. Bit overpriced but rest all good. They should have Air conditions in the room though it may/may not be used. Friendly staff, cleanliness was upto mark and rooms are specious enough.
