I stayed in Babara's village for a month with my husband and it was so lovely. Running away from the noisy areas of Accra Central, i found the Village to hide: with peaceful atmosphere, fresh air and cleaner environment. The food was good, the room was clean and the staff very helpful.Above all good music where available. If someone needs... More

After reading the reviews of this place, I had nice expectations. Unfortunately the place didn't live up to them. We stayed in one of the Ashanti houses, there were serious problems in the bathroom, the toilet was nearly flooding with excrements several times, the first time one of the employees solved the problem, the second time my boyfriend had to...

Unfortunately Yzabelletje actually had a bad experience . Of course it does not mean our toilets are flooded all the time, or that we do not have running water most of the time… Truthfully it can happen from time to time that water runs out in our main water tank even though we try our best to prevent it. In... More

This is a nice place but doesn't have beach views. The room was a bit dark and soulless. There were crazy loud creatures running up and down our hut all night. It sounded like the jungle creatures were mobilizing for war against humans. I didn't get any sleep but my partner didn't mind it. Bring earplugs I guess. The musicians... More

With its beautiful garden and cool bar area, friendly and helpful staff, traditional layout of the village and houses offering perfect comfort for Africa, delicious food and relaxing atmosphere, Barbara’s Village certainly comes highly recommended. It’s a distance away from the hustle and bustle of the capital and nearby tourist places, but still close enough to do everything one wants.... More
