I’ve read recent reviews that weren’t very favourable of Accra Beach. But we’ve had the best time! The staff were wonderful, attentive and friendly. On arrival they had upgraded us to an ocean view junior suit ( we originally booked the street view junior suit) and the views are stunning. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bath tub is huge and most importantly the air con is great. During our stay we took advantage of the beach bar and pool bar and again the staff were super friendly and the drinks are STRONG. Would definitely recommend a rum punch, just don’t have too many otherwise you’ll be on the floor. On our last night we enjoyed the BBQ buffet and disco entertainment at the deck restaurant. The food was delicious and the singers were very talented and gave the restaurant a great atmosphere. The decor is a little outdated, I do believe a few minor changes would make a massive difference to the overall feel of the hotel. (A lick of paint, hairdryers in the room, new bedside lamps, re-upholstered furniture) otherwise, I really can’t fault this lovely hotel. Some comments are stating that the hotel is a bit too expensive for what it’s worth. But there are definitely deals to be found, keep your eyes pealed on virgin holidays as we got a great deal with them. Read less

We stayed at this hotel 3years ago and the whole holiday was absolutely perfect just couldn’t fault anything, so we have waited until this year to return because of covid, what a shock this hotel has been so neglected everything from the pool , sunbeds, furnishings, shower in our room with absolutely no water pressure, even the grass and gardens are just not the same, no entertainment bar outside close at 9-30 bar inside so hot and stuffy no one in there, reception staff quite rude and unhelpful didn’t really seem bothered at all , we actually had no water at all for 3 days because apparently the government made plans to do work, on all the water pipe work in this part of the island on the main two weeks of Easter, why they didn’t do it when the country stop tourists going because of covid I cannot understand, the hotel said this was not there problem but surely if they knew this was going to happen they should be letting guests know before they arrive, so they can then decide whether to go somewhere else, but like I said reception staff were not bothered at all, all other staff in breakfast and at the bar on the other hand were wonderful, will I ever go back to Barbados yes Accra Beach definitely NO Read less

Having seen a few negative reviews of the Accra Beach, I thought I'd add my own views while I'm at the hotel. This is my fourth stay here over the years, and although the great beach and location are a constant, I did have concerns that the hotel might have declined. I'm pleased to report that my room is a bright, modern bedroom with efficient aircon, refreshment, wifi and tv facilities. Cleaning and service is to a high standard and the staff are very friendly. In short, a great vacation hotel in a wonderful country and we will continue to return here. Recommended! Read less
