I stayed here for a few nights when I was in town for a conference. I would avoid and look elsewhere, particularly for the price that you pay. I actually found the Maxlot in town to be a better option at about half the price.
The hotel is attempted to be a five star European or US beach style experience although it fails on a number of accounts.
Firstly, when I arrived, the lock on my door didn't work - I couldn't get in and then it wouldn't let me out! The hot water didn't work, and then the bathroom flooded. Finally, when I moved room the internet didn't work either - and the wifi is extremely weak. They also forgot to clean my room on two of the nights that I was here.The food is very expensive (around GH60 for a dinner - double the price of places in town) and I found it to be average at best.
It is also pretty far out of town if you have a conference at the International Conference Centre and traffic is heavy to get in during the morning (it can take up to 40 minutes).
On the plus side, the staff are friendly and the breakfast is decent, but that is probably the minimum that you would expect for nearly $300 a night.
I would look elsewhere if you want better value for money and comfort.
