“Beautiful views, tasty food but too pricey for the rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We were recommended this hotel by other volunteers as a place to go in cape coast, that alot of other volunteers go to and has night life. This is very true the one night we stayed here there was a dance/drama club performing which was brilliant and the food especially the tuna pizza is very tasty. When ordering cocktails be careful, i ordered the cheapest one, which ended up being the funniest part of the night as the cocktail was in a shot glass - not worth the money. The room itself was for 4 2 bunk beds and cost 80cedi which sounds like nothing but compared to other places we stayed for alot cheaper it really wasnt worth it. They have showers in a block a minute walk from all rooms and same applies for the toilets, so not ones connected to the room, but this is very common in Ghana. Location is brilliant as its 5 minutes walk from shops and 10 minutes from the main street, and is of course is on the beach front. Overall this is a good hotel but overpriced slightly and can get alot nicer hotels for half the price.

Room Tip: better value to pay for a dorm.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Went with my family (wife and 11/14 year old boys) as well as two friends from our volunteer project. The location is hard to beat - our room was 10 feet off the beach and less than a 5 minute walk to Cape Coast castle. The restaurant is decent for Ghana, not unreasonable for a hotel and has a good selection of drinks. The hotel is known as a destination for a party night out in Cape Coast with loud music and dancing, but most rooms (including ours) was far enough away and combined with the crashing sound of the waves, we were not bothered by the late night partying. At a little below $10 / night per person for a room with bunk beds, ceiling fan, mosquito nets, you get a good deal for the price. The shared toilets are decent and the outdoor enclosed showers offer a great respite from the heat and humidity.

Room Tip: The higher numbered rooms (there are 10 in total) are further away from the restaurant / dance floor...

We got a room here and immediately regretted it. Stay at the Mighty Victory instead. You can't beat the location of the Oasis, but it's dirty, there are incredible numbers of bugs in the toilets, and it feels like a 24/7 frat party.

We stayed here for two nights - a lively bar in hotel was great and our room was away from this so the party could continue without disturbing us. The beach huts could be easily accessed from the beach and as a trio of girls we felt more vulnerable here than anywhere else we had visited in Ghana. But the welcome was warm, the staff helpful and the rooms were large and cool. Basic as you would expect - and bathroom area would hVe benefited from a new lick of paint as was looking tired. Would still consider if going back backpacking in Ghana.

We stayed in the resort for our last few days in Ghana. I was really impressed with the dorms, think we paid a few pounds a night and they were great value. Plenty of toilets which are kept clean, as are the showers. The bar service was very good, the food was slow to come out but as we learnt, that is just the way in Ghana! They had great entertainment on one of the nights we were there and they do a bonfire on the beach some nights too which is great. The staff are very friendly and the locals that hang around the area are great fun too.
Felt very safe and secure on the resort, they have several of guard dogs which are kept on a lead during the day but then roam around at night, they are very friendly dogs and they sometimes even escort you to the toilet at night!
Would definitely recommend staying here, couldn't fault the place and would love to visit again.

I spent a long time at this bar - it was a lovely place to relax after a hard day of volunteering on the local newspaper and we had some great times here. But, local thieves know this place as a tourist hangout and I got mugged while walking home. So, if you do go for a drink here kick back and relax but insist on taking a taxi home. Also, do not swim in the sea while drunk I have heard of a few deaths that way and had to rescue someone from the waves myself.

We travelled from Accra as a group and arrived tired Friday evening to loud music and something resembling a meat market but with tourists and locals! (sorry but its true) Everyone was less than impressed at the noise and was anxious what the accomodation would be like. Pleasently suprised the dorm we had booked out was clean, secure and each bed had clean sheets and their own mosquito net - so points for the dorm. There were lockers in our room but only 1 had a key.

The showers and toilets were outside and often had no toilet paper or hot water. The security guard hang around the shower block making the ladies uncomfortable. There was no where quiet to eat out dinner so we had to return back out to the noisy bar, order and wait there. The waiters were lovely and the food speed was average. The seafood tasted lovely and was priced ok. The breakfasts were shocking. Saturday night there is live entertainment which is great to see. There must be better options around but for groups the dorm is great just go explore other food options.
