Hmm, my first visit to Africa but probably couldn't have picked a better place to go than Ghana. Certainly a 3rd world country but what lovely people! No crime to speak of, no violence and a population that respects the rule of law. This trait spilled over into the majority (not all) of the staff. Daniel on the door is the best.
The food in Africa is very ordinary. Usually overcooked chicked and lots of carbohydrates such as baked tarot and potatoes plus heaps of (again overcooked) rice. That summed up the restaurant although to be fair, the salads were nice and fresh. Only problem is you don't know what they were washed in.
The eggs are the most aeonemic looking things where you have trouble finding where the yolk ends and the white starts. Again overcooked to 4wd tyre proportions.
However, probably the best of a bad bunch but at US$375 qa night you'd think they would remember to pick me up from the airport rather than leave me standing there for an hour, only to have to get a taxi in the end.
Would I stay there again - yes. Why - everything else is worse!
