A travel agent booked this place for me for a couple of nights relaxation by the beach. It was a bit more basic than I was expecting. Location: it's about a 15 min journey out of Busua and about 1km from the closest village Akwidaa. The road on the way is quite rough. I was glad we had a 4x4.... More

We were very much looking forward to our stay at Safari Beach Lodge, based on recommendations read in (old) guide books and email exchange with the Safari team (emailing was very friendly and helpful). We came from Co-Sa Beach resort in Cape Coast, where we had a fantastic time with excellent and huge amounts of fresh seafood, wine, etc -... More

The service was very caring, friendly and helpful. Because we had no car, they arranged one for us and it was very convenient.... More

First, Safari Beach Lodge is not in Sekondi-Takoradi. It is located about 30 mins drive from Dixcove. Dixcove is about 45 mins from Takoradi. Once you get to Dixcove, the road to the hotel is terrible. I would definitely say you need a 4-wheel drive car to get there. Don't travel to the place after 5pm because it's a dirt... More

Safari Beach Lodge, Sekondi-Takoradi depicts the beauty of nature to have some refreshing time with my family. But the authorities must have a cheaper means of coming there from the main Takoradi station without much difficulties.

The hotel itself is wonderful, secluded beach with some very nice and relaxing staff. Cool beach lodge with lots of wildlife and beach with basically no one there, we had beach to ourselves all week. However, be warned. The manager is not honest and (although she does not live on site) will try to alter prices and get more from... More
