I went to this hotel on a planning and team build. Its a nice place with some very big rooms, the staff are nice and the view is nice. Everything is nice - but not much is exceptional. There's a lot to do around and about, but beyond a beach with flamingoes and the odd seal (sometimes decomposing on the beach), there is little to do without transport. The food was (guess) ... nice.
Allegedly, Brad and Angelina stayed here, but i suspect this would be more down to their agent not doing research than anything else. The decor can be a bit confused sometimes - the bar restaurant seems to be trying to fuse 70s English with Modern African.
The staff are pleasant and helpful but i missed the beaming smiles i found in other places in Namibia. I am told that in December the whole area gets mobbed with holiday makers and that may change the vibe... or bring one.
