Nice place to go to get away from the city and spend a relaxing day by the river. Nice decking area which has been improved a lot since our first visit three years ago. Very pretty gardens. The staff are friendly, service can be slow but only what you'd expect in Ghana. My husband stayed there once and the room... More

We travelled down as a family, and stayed in the family unit. Reception was very friendly and very quick to help us. The restaurant service was good and the Food well prepared. Unfortunately the room was filthy, not made up and ready for our arrival. Beds were not made. I don't think the place had been cleaned in a while.... More

This is a tough one. The view from the restaurant beside the lake is breathtaking, as is the stillness in the early morning. The food was good, not great.Yet somehow the whole experience just did not come together. I stayed in Afrikiko for 3 night on a business trip so appreciated the addition of the view, but I know I...

This was the 2nd place we stayed during our Ghana trip. The location seemed good-we intended staying for 5 nights but had to cut it short for the following reasons - the noise from the music. We wanted somewhere to chill, relax and enjoy nature, unfortunately the music was so loud it gave headaches all day and complaining has no... More

How can you ask 135$ for a small, dirty room? During our trip in Ghana we got fantastic rooms and services for the same price. Unfortunately we arrived late and we could not go elsewhere. The receptionist was rude, I had to ask twice to get my change (1 hour later) and 4 times to get the receipt (3 hours... More

This hotel still got so much to do to bring the place up to standard. It seem to me like the management don't even care what happens there and how workers discharge duties. I went away from the noise and hassle of the city to have a quite time only to stay awake whole night till morning- cos there was... More

Somewhat torn about what to say about the place. I found the service to be great and the view was amazing. I had a really nice stay and enjoyed it. The food was delicious. However, the food was kinda expensive and the drinks even more so. The pool was nice, clean and had a cute mosaic, but the tile around... More

Afrikiko waterfront resort though in an excellent location is not offering value for the money paid. The room S2 is poorly maintained, the hot water is not functional and only one bucket was provided with hot water from the restaurant. No buckets available also!
