After reading the negative reviews here, it was with some trepidation that I spent a night here. As a fairly mainstream woman over 50 with a 9 year old son, I wondered whether I would regret it. But we loved it! It is simple, but it is a budget resort. And despite that, it was far more fun than the standard sterile hotels we've stayed in before in Accra. The rooms are simple but clean, and falling asleep with the waves crashing outside is great! We felt safe, loved the location on the cliff top, food was great. Sure there was aromatic smoke occasionally, but really did not bother us. The staff was courteous and helpful. Ride from and to the airport was colourful and prompt. Will definitely keep this as our Accra transit location.
