Reviews of Sam's Giardino

Cool western coast.
We had a most pleasant stay at Sam's. He takes a real pride in his establishment, and his attention to detail was most impressive.
Again, there were trips on offer which we did not have enough time to fit in, but that was no fault of Sam'!
We enjoyed Swakupmond.
Great place for wine lovers.
Sam's Giardino provides and good base for exploring Swakomund and the surrounding area because, the reception staff were helpful in arranging bookings for us on two excellent trips, one to Sandwich Harbour and the other the "Little 5" dune tour, which included pickup and delivery from and to Sam's and filled both of the days we were in Swakomund.
Sam's wine tasting was a very pleasant way of spending the early evening before dinner, and after dinner we enjoyed browsing through Sam's large collection of Namibian travel books in the lounge. The garden was pleasant but unfortunately, there was a lot of sea fog and we were unable to take advantage of it and the garden furniture.
We enjoyed the food and wine.
Wine, woofs and waves at Sam's!
The decor in our room was a little ordinary compared to the other places we stayed in but the room was spacious and clean.
Sam was a very interesting host and again we loved the dogs. The lady on reception was also very helpful and had booked a boat trip for us within minutes of the request. We throroughly enjoyed Sam's wine-tasting session - learned a huge amount - and followed by the five course meal this made for a very contrasting evening from the rest of the holiday.
The Walvis Bay boat trip was fantastic!
Would have liked one day more here
Sam was very helpful and welcoming and his food was delicious.
He recommended a tour called the living desert tour - we went out to find small creature in the desert - this was outstanding and an absolute must
An interesting place which we enjoyed
We thought that this place had a querky feel to it but Sam was very welcoming and friendly. Our room was comfortable.
We ate at the Tug the first night which we thought was brilliant and the fish was very welcome after a lot of meat meals!
The second night after sundowners at The Tug, we were the sole diners at Sam's and on reflection should have perhaps gone out in town again.
