Actually set in the toytown development of Landstrand, some 15km north of the town and roughly half way to Swakopmund, this place hit the headlines when it bizarrely became the spot in which Brad and Angelina decided to stay whilst having their first child.
As a frequent visitor to namibia and particularly Swakopmund over the last several years, I decided that due to all the hype surrounding this place I would give it a try. The hype being the fact that Brad and Agelina stayed there a few years back for the week. The Hotel itself is set right on the beach front, but it is in a really strange area of development, which kind of resembles Toytown. The area is quite upmarket place, with lots of upmarket holiday homes surrounding it, but there is nothing to do other than walk the beach. If you want to get anything you need to drive 20 minutes into Swakopmund itself.
The Hotel accommodation is very comfortable and is comprised of five luxury suites, the one i rented even had a jacuzzi. Downstairs there is an comfortable lounge and dining area which has a garden. The food and service were pretty good, but you can only handle the same Restaurant a couple of times, hence the need to get out and go into town. Which by the way has some excellent Restaurant options.
Although it is a comfortable and reliable option, i cant see myself staying there again, as I much prefer to base myself in nearby Swakopmund.
