Quiet location on the cool sea. After a long journey through a hot Namibia this is a nice location to cool off. It is peaceful here. Our apartment was very quiet and well equipped. Enough ability to get around breakfast.

Reviewed 12 September 2016

The unit was fine but the party on the Saturday night in the unit above was quite unacceptably noisy all afternoon and well into the night-it certainly made the stay less attractive.The security guy on duty could do nothing.We had to sleep with all the windows shut which meant we couldn't hear the sea at all

All you need is your companions for the holiday and this is it! Everything was in place and spotless! The manageress and staff were very helpful and friendly and the security was even better than many places in Gauteng! We could enjoy the sea view from our lounge and wake up to the sound of the waves in the morning!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built metres from the beautiful beach in Henties Bay, Namibia, with spectacular ocean views, Desert Rose will certainly appeal to the outdoor loving, adventure seeking family. Spend the day relaxing on the beach - the numerous dunes around Henties Bay are definitely worth sliding down as is the super tube during peak season. 70km drive from the resort brings you to Swakopmund where you will find interesting curio shops, restaurants and coffee shops, horse racing, yacht racing, tennis tournaments, a casino and beer fests in season. ... more   less
