Recently stayed at Joy Family Lodge after booking it based on a map that showed it was actually in the heart of Accra. Found out after the fact that Joy Family Lodge is actually an hour away from my original desired location. I've been doing research in another part of Ghana for some months but was also running the Accra... More

The Joy Family Lodge is an excellent choice. It is immaculately clean, quiet, and comfortable. The proprietors and their staff are helpful and accommodating. The meals are well prepared and tasty. The property is fenced and secure, with a beautiful garden and patio area ideal for relaxation, a drink, or a meal. There also is transportation available from the Accra... More

Great small hotel in Pokuase area (about 1 1/2 hrs away from DT Accra). The rooms are great and feature AC, a small fridge, and bathrooms with a shower. The patio area is a like a small green oasis. The staff is nice and helpful (especially James). We enjoyed having dinner and a Guinness in the garden after a long... More

Got to Ghana and it was a warm welcome right from the terminal (where they cam to pick me) to the hotel and throughout my stay. Entire staff very friendly and homely, always ready to answer... More

Joy Family is a solid enough hotel, but there's no reason to come out to Pokuase unless you're visiting someone or doing business in the immediate area. It's about an hour away from downtown Accra, over a very rough section of road near Achimota that has remained unpaved for several years now. There are many better-situated options in downtown Accra... More

Would love to write a review for this hotel. Booked it as our 1st place in Ghana during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations. Arranged pick-up at the airport, and when we couldn't find anyone, I called them, only to find out they had given our rooms to somebody else..... At 11pm, having landed after an 8hour flight from England,... More
