I don't have much to add to what has already been said by other reviewers. The one thing that I found very strange was that this was the first time in a very long time that we were in a hotel where there was a charge for the use of their Wifi. Although the cost was only about $4/hour, it was somewhat off putting to be on a timer when the other hotels even in Ghana were not charging at all. Other than that, quite adequate. And certainly very convenient (easy walking distance) to Independence Park where the president gave his Independence Day (March 6) speech.

The serene oceanfront environment makes Afia a peaceful retreat from the daily activity of life in this busy city. Situated on the Gulf of Guinea, in a gentle bay sweeping from Ghana's Presidential Castle to Jamestown Fishing Harbour,Afia African Village is ideally located to meet the needs and interests of business travellers and tourists alike. The hotel has been sensitively designed to take full advantage of the expansive ocean views and cooling sea breezes. Its traditionally styled architecture evokes the very essence of Africa.
