“A recommended stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights in the three bedroom apartment. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable and covered our requirements fully. The owners were very friendly and gave us some good tips about where to stay and pointed out a nice route to walk into town at night. I think the Wifi here was actually better than the Wifi we have at home !

Overall, excellent experience. More than expected. Breakfast was plentiful. A microwave would have been perfect, but we had everything we need. Planning on trying-out the bigger apartments next. Looking forward to it.

We spend 2 nights at Sandcastle. We had a big apartment with 2 double rooms and 2 bathrooms and this was perfect with our teenagers. Small kitchen with everything you need, tv, sofa, big table. Everything is very clean and comfortable and cosy. Very good beds, a safe in the room. Everything is very secure with alarm system and you can park your car inside the property. We really enjoyed our stay here because the owners were so friendly and helpful, you could ask anything and they would try to help you. Rainer and Silke are really good people, I hope we will go back to Swakopmund one day and we will meet them again!

Unfortunately we only overnighted at Sandcastle Apartments, it was clean, tidy, secure and located close to beach and walkway.
The room was able to be alarmed when we went out, there was also a safe. The room was also very warm which was good as late July can have cool nights.
Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was clean and water was hot with good pressure.
Secure car parking too.

We really enjoyed our night there, could hear the ocean too which was really nice.

Large apartments with good facilities (and alarm and safe) with a fenced parking space. Swakopmund centre is a 10 to 15 minute walk along the sea away. Interior of the apartment is a mix of German and kolonial style (a bit dark), this combined with high walls outside made it feel a bit too enclosed / depressing. But of course this is a personal opinion. The management suggested restaurants and activities, but we doubted if the suggestions were neutral, so we didn't follow them up.

This is one of my best experiences of 2012. It is a nice a hotel in the western Namib desert where walking along the clear beach sand was a very good experience. It is also appropriately priced. I think it is a good destination for holidays and total relaxation.

Room Tip: It is a very good place for holidays
