“Discover Accra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

What a warm and welcoming reception! Staff at this conveniently located hotel couldn't do any more to welcome you when you first walk in.

The hotel is luxurious and has a glamourous feel to it. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Food is also top notch.

The staff certainly do their best to ensure you enjoy your stay

Stayed at La Palm for a conference......the hotel situation is great, right on the beach with a bar/restaurant benefitting from the sea breeze (eesnetial when it gets too hot), the bar guys could do with a bit of charisma but, for the most part, the personal service was fine. Rooms and facilities do need a re-vamp, soon, otherwise it all go a bit seedy. Pleasant enough though.

I stayed here for 4 nights on business and enjoyed the experience.

Hotel is very well appointed, superb gardens and a range of eating and drinking options, all of which were great. The pool was excellent also. The most impressive feature was their actual organisation of events - there were a number running simultaneously but all seemed to be extremely well sorted.

The only minor negative was that the room, although large and well equipped, was a bit frayed - rust around the door frame, a few floor tiles cracked. But the bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and completely insect free!

Free wireless internet was available throughout the complex although the signal was erratic at times.

This hotel will slowly fall into parts, like the letters on the wall mentioning the name of the hotel. First room with no internet, next room without a safe and poor internet speed, third room ok and clean. Prepare yourselves for struggling with the people at the reception, making excuses, that you end up feeling your are wrong yourself. After 18 hours traveling, you do not want to wait hours for internet repair, which the proposed. Food in the restaurants, tried 2 of them, middle level quality.
They do not have change money, and give you back keeping the tips without telling you. In the room you are welcomed with 1 x 0,5 liter bottle of water. Next day you have to buy your own water as the management decided to reduce this service to first day only. Price, quality is way-out fair for the guest. Internet speed told to be high speed / max. speed reached 1.5 mb.

I spent three days at La Palm and overall i was not too impressed. The service was wonderful, the staff were very friendly but this does not compensate for the worn out, dated and tatty rooms.

The hotel was built in the late 90's and does appear to have been touched since. Dodgy electrics, sockets hanging off walls, aircon that leaked water and bathrooms that felt they were time warped from the 1970's. The patio doors had almost rusted shut. Internet connectivity was okay as long as you use the cable, wifi was patchy to non existent. The food was very good with a variety of restaurants, the gym was great. The pool area was fine and there is a great childrens play area. The grounds are vast and well ordered, with plenty of secuirty guards. There is direct access to the beach. Regular spraying has controlled the mosquitoes.

All in all if they just updated the rooms this would actually be a good hotel.
