Really chilled atmosphere and great place to meet some of the locals. Room could have been a bit cleaner but sufficed for our needs. Beautiful views of the oceans. Would recommend. Tip for finding the place: use to be called Akuma Village, some taxi drivers don't know the new name.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Rising Phoenix Magic Beach Resort. The service was brilliant. The owner and staff was so nice. Chilled and relaxed and very good food. The hotel is a budget hotel but with fantastic ocean view and very high value for the money. Thanks Phoenix for all the help - Ida & David

Currently writing this review in my room and the Magic Phoenix Hotel. Waves of the sea fill the my room and have just enjoyed a wonderful vegetarian meal at the bar. My room is pretty decent for a budget hotel, everything works and if you need something the manager will try to make it happen. This morning we were lucky... More

The rooms are simple, but OK for the price (73 cedi). The only noise is from the sea. So no sounds from the restaurant and no sounds from the street, which is quite exceptional for a hotel in a city like Accra. The area around the hotel is not nice and looks like a slum. During the day this is... More

Thankyou. Sorry about the noise. We do monitor it, and will bear your comments in mind. I hope you can come again. I think the area outside is safe. To be doubly sure, take a taxi to the door, and let the night security welcome you! More

Extremely run down place, locks on the door didnt work, the manager said that he would get a smaller key, my guess was that just about anything fitting in that lock would open it, the room was dirty and broke in the extreme end of the scale..

This is a fantastic place in a great location and for a decent price. Me and 3 friends stayed here twice; once at the start of the trip and again at the end. Its within walking distance of many sights including Fort James, the Nkrumah memorial and the curio market. The position on a cliff over the sea is also... More

For price and location this place in Accra is hard to beat. It is by no means a beach "resort" but it is very cheap. Rooms are basic beach "huts" spectacularly located with a sheer drop down to the beach and the bay of Guinea. And at the same time within only 5-10 minutes walking distance (situated near Akuma village... More

For my last week in Ghana after volunteering for a few months, I wanted both to relax and actually be a tourist in Ghana. The Rising Phoenix worked great for that! The cliffside rooms right on the ocean were great, the beach was nice for sea glass and shell searching (and I even went in for a swim one day,... More

After reading the negative reviews here, it was with some trepidation that I spent a night here. As a fairly mainstream woman over 50 with a 9 year old son, I wondered whether I would regret it. But we loved it! It is simple, but it is a budget resort. And despite that, it was far more fun than the... More
