Quaint, quiet, homely environment. We were greeted by Beethoven, the Pr of the B&B.. The place has a real authentic atmosphere!. Place is of great quality and very high standards’ found the staff to be friendly. I've not been disappointed. Sam is friendly and very helpful, breakfast is particularly good. The place is a walking distance to town. I am so glad to have discovered Sam's B&B and will definitely be back. Wi Fi easily available everywhere.

Room Tip: Top floor is the best!!! you have a great view of the dunes and smell the fresh air of the sea early...

Good location, safe, great service.The staff were really nice.Welcoming even to the guest's friends who don't stay there. Free wifi is also a great idea. I would stay there again if go to Swakopmund again.

We had great time in Swakopmund thank also to Sam kindness and his suggestions. The house is nice with a gentle swiss touch. We were lucky to stay in the suite which is fantastic, very large with a wonderful jacuzzi !!! Breakfast is various from sweet to salad, one of the best we had in Namibia. I recommend also to make the wine tasting. Sam is also a sommelier very capable to explain us lots of interesting things about wine in general and we discover and tasted very good South African wines. The dog is also amazing ! Definitely recommend to go to Sam's if you stay in Swakopmund.

Room Tip: The suite is fantastic

I travelled to Swakopmund for the weekend and decided to stay at Sam's place for two nights. When you arrive, you are greeted by Beethoven (Sam's friendly Berner Sennen and apparently the public relations manager) and of course the owner, Sam. The hotel is located only a few minutes away from the center of town and the beach. Sam is highly knowledgable and incredibly helpful, he sat and chatted with us for quite some time with us about different activities and restaurants we should visit in the area over a sprawling Swiss breakfast. We also got to do an extensive winetasticng with him which was a lot of fun. I do have to say that the best part about staying there is that you feel like you're a guest in someone's home instead of a hotel room number in a sterile and impersonal hotel chain. I felt like the area is quite safe as well, I'm a young woman and I felt comfortable enough to walk around in the evening. Overall, I highly recommend Sam's Giardino if you're in Swakopmund!

I spent already two nights at Sam's Giardino in 2012 and wanted to "do it again" in 2013. Sam's Giardino is the right place to stay, when one wants to combine heartly hospitality and fine sense of dining. The rooms are clean, the surrounding is quiet, the dog "Beethoven" is great, Sam is doing an excellent guest relation, the kitchen (and the ladies working there) are perfect! Kind regards, R.B.
