“The Prime Meridian !!! Greenwich and Tema !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

We stayed locally so the only reason we went to Ave Maria was to gaze at the MERIDIAN ROCK...this is a rock jutting out of the ocean the points to the place where the PRIME MERIDIAN crosses over into the sea and nothingness,( Tema is the last land point it passes before entering the sea in Africa !!!!) The food is ok...but the view of the lit up Tema port at night is great...best to go in the late eve when the Rock is still visible and sit in the restaurant jutting into and above the sea sipping a beer with friends and watching the ships sail/wait for their turn to dock into the brightly lit harbour. This was all the more special for us as we have been to Greenwich as well.

Stayed December 2011, traveled with family

We had a day off from our duty routine and the cab driver drove us to the AveMaria Helth & Wellness center in Tema.
On Arrival we observed that there was some extension being carried out on the future reception area.
We went thgoiugh to the pool / restautrant area. We were amazed that behind all the concrete works in front laid an awesome setting behind.
The view was breath taking,
Sadly the service was poor. It took forever to have our orders served. To make thngs worse, my oder was half done, and had t send it back to be done which took anoither 45 minutes.
Even worse, i came back with severe food poisoning that it took me 2 months to recover.
I have no idea who runs the place, but i would not recommend eating at the Avemaria Wellness Center. They ought to change the "Wellness" to "Sickness"
A very negative experience indeed. You eat there at your own risk.

This hotel is by the sea and overlooks the harbor. The location was very serene. The staff was very friendly and the owner did everything to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. The hotel gave us a truly home away from home experience. As is to be expected in Ghana, there were a few glitches with electricity but there is a generator that automatically kicks in should the power go off and we never had any problems. The rooms were always clean. We really enjoyed the pool that pulls in sea water from the ocean. We can't wait to go back.

i definitely think it's the sort of place you go to when you need to get away from it all. not sure, if same would apply for a business trip, but i did love how personalized the service was and the atmosphere is so serene.

My stay at this so called hotel was truly awful. To begin with, there was no water available in the bathroom, upon my arrival, nor was there electricity in the room, which meant the AC was not working. Appreciating Ghana's climate meant that I spent a very uncomfortable night. However, due to my extremely long flight, Isimply fell asleep exhausted, and made my complaint the next day to the owner of the hotel, who to be honest, was blatantly rude and completely uninterested. In addition to this, I had booked the conference room in order to hold interviews, but as there was no AC in there also, I held my interviews in the hotel garden. Subsequently, I refused to pay as I had not used the room, but in the end I had to. My advice is, there are better hotels in Ghana: stay at one of them instead.
