"A Delightful stay in Swakopmund"
The breakfast quality was good, although some of the made to order breakfast items were slow in being served and some were forgotten." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"A good base in Swakopmund"
Heading out to Pelican Point from Walvis Bay and kayaking with the young seals was great fun. We saw loads of flamingos, pelicans and other sea birds as well as a Jackal.
Day 2 was a trip out for the Sandwich Harbour Experience along the beach and through the coastal dunes. Lots of sea birds, jackals enjoying a seal carcass, ostrich, springbok etc. Rudi from Turnstone Tours was excellent - very informative. and interesting. We also had a wonderful lasagna for lunch among the dunes.
Lots of secure parking at the hotel and a delightful young lady on reception who helped us to sort out some confusion over one of our activities. The hotel only serves breakfast, but there are plenty of places to eat within reach." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"The Delight review"
The rooms were perfect (we were lucky to have a room backing onto the secure car park), the staff were very helpful (especially Steven and his friend who did not hesitate to help us to change a tyre in the hotel's secure car park at 7am!!!)
The breakfast was excellent.
No complaints at all and we would definitely stay here again!!" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia
