Protea Burning Shore wasn't in Walvis Bay as we thought (Google maps took us the other side of Walvis Bay), but at Long Beach south of WB. We had a massive room which was great but lacked some more practical things like towel hooks, but the great feature of this hotel was its position on the beach, looking right onto...

After unpacking and have an evening stroll we wanted to shower and bath - but no hot water. We were given a new room without a fuss but we had to pack up. The room also needed...

What do you expect when you plan to have dinner at a small hotel's restaurant that is right on the beachfront at a popular holiday destination? You would expect to have a great experience as plain and simple as that. Well, the place has everything in its favour. Awesome beach and surf views to start with, comfy seats and that...

I don't really know what made Angelina Jolie choose this hotel.... I truly can't imagine there isn't anything better than this mess in swakopmund or walvis bay, but maybe in 10 years things have changed as this hotel has become a terrible mess. Untrained staff at the reception, downward rude and embarrassingly slow in both understanding simple requests or managing...

We stayed at the Burning Shore hotel for 4 nights. The location was great and our rooms as very nice and clean, but that was where the good news ended. The service was the worst I have ever experienced and we will never return to the Burning Shore!

The rooms at this hotel are beautiful...crisp linen, coffee making facilities, lovely sweeping views of the ocean. The decor is classy seaside-themed. We really felt it was a good place to just rest. The rooms are right on the beach- perfect for a walk on the quiet sands. The reception is friendly, and there is a great selection of maps...

I will start with the positive - the staff are extremely friendly. The location is great - right on the beach! The rest unfortunately leaves A LOT to be desired.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the shifting sands of the Namib Desert swirl in time to an ageless rhythm, this hotel rises above the wilderness in an oasis of calm like a soothing balm upon the scorched earth. It is here, on the edge of one of the world's largest sand dunes, that visitors pay homage to the stark beauty of the Namib and the mighty expanse of the Atlantic. Protea Hotel by Marriott(R) Swakopmund Burning Shore offers four standard rooms, three luxury rooms, four superior rooms and one suite. The hotel is located on the beachfront at Longbeach, only 15 km from either Swakopmund or Walvis Bay and 20 minutes from the nearest Regional Airport. It's a hotel that complements your travel style. Dine at our in-house restaurant that serves exquisite cuisine or sit down for your favorite drink in the cocktail bar. Guests can also head to the deck for alfresco dining with direct access to the beach or indulge in activities from quad biking to dolphin cruises. ... more   less

“We had 'Shiloh' room which was a luxury room, but it is open plan with the bathroom. Not a good idea if you want privacy on the loo! Otherwise, a nice room with a partial view of the beach and sea. We upgraded from a standard room which a member of staff said was very small. (We didn't see one.)”
