The Afia Beach Hotel is in a very convenient and peaceful location. It faces onto the relatively clean (compared with many others in Accra) beach which was safe enough to swim in. The room was a little worn, particularly the bathroom, but for the price was very good value and fully functioning. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant serves good but comparatively expensive food in a nice location.
The main improvements would be more landscaping to the beach-facing garden and better access to the beach, which at the time of visiting was a bit of a scramble up a bank of rock and sand.
As non-chain West African hotels go, this is one of the best I've encountered.
