Part of my job is to inspect hotels and rate them as acceptable or unacceptable for my fellow workers. I have been doing this internationally for over 11 years. In Accra, I reviewed multiple properties and I can say without a doubt the Labadi Beach Hotel is the best in town.
Positives: I just spent 4 nights at the Labadi in the newly renovated wing. The hotel did a fantastic job! All tile flooring, great comfortable king bed with soft sheets and a nice warm comforter, fully functional air conditioner that can make one's room a meat locker if you wanted it to. Bathroom well lit. Separate shower enclosed by glass doors and an additional large soaker tub. Plenty of room for toiletries either side of the sink although the surface is lower.
Pool area and general grounds are very nice and well kept. Private beach nice to have. Breakfast was fantastic. Buffet with a omelet station. Plenty of fresh fruit and juices. I ate out most of the time but I did have a excellent greek salad and a thai shrimp curry dish that was the best I ever had. Members in my group all commented that their meals were excellent. Free wifi throughout the hotel. The speed issue and dropped connection seems to have been fixed. I only had an issue during my first day and the hotel's IT folks had it fixed in a matter of minutes.
Negatives: Efficiency of front desk on check out. My billed showed I had a mini bar charge when in fact I NEVER use the mini bar. Call me cheap but I prefer thrifty. Front desk took my word for it and issued a credit. It did seem to take a little longer than I would expect to check out. Would like to see better lighting in the room.
Location is remote. There is the casino just west of the hotel but outside of that one will be taking transportation to anywhere else. The Osu district has many restaurants and shopping which is approximately :15 minutes away depending on traffic. 5 Cedis cost if you take the taxis outside of the hotel or use the safer mode of Avis drivers for 14 Cedis an hour. Don't plan on returning to the hotel between 4 and 7 pm as traffic is a night mare along the coast.
General: Hotel offers a shuttle bus to and from airport. Arrangements must be made ahead of time. Avis rent a car is on property. $10 USD or 14 Cedis an hour includes car, driver, and gas. Taxis out front of hotel are a lot cheaper but buyer beware. Not the safest for of transportation. Recommend staying out of the water as there is a lot of garbage on the sand bottom that you can not see. Wear shoes on the beach. ( Hotel's private beach is kept clean.)
Over all the newly renovated wing was done in an excellent manner. Nice job Labadi! I would recommend if your travels take you to Accra then treat yourself to the Labadi Beach Hotel.
