My boyfriend and I we visited this resort last week. There were not many other guests and due to construction work the restaurant was closed. The staff was very friendly and always available to help. The food was coming from another restaurant and it took extremely long until they brought it. They are rebuilding the place and it did not... More

Had a great weekend at Maks. The room is spacious and very clean. The bathroom massive and the Aircon working really well. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The location is truly beautiful on the Volta river. Dinner is served at the other Maks resort and the staff truly friendly and the food delicious. If you are looking at... More

A serene beautiful atmosphere. Opt for the room closest to the bank of the river. You have a breath-taking view of the sun in the morning. Don't believe what you see on the menu; they don't serve half the stuff they put on the menu. They biggest room is still small in size, but I guess its in alignment with... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3days in October 2013 and I've not stopped thinking about it. The food was good though sometimes served late. The bar was excellent and the ambience was quiet and serene. I keep thinking of going back though I don't have anything to do there!

I stayed in Marks Resort in 2011 and absolutely loved it! The area is very relaxing and the scenery is beautiful. You can hire jet skis, go on a boat to a nearby island, see crocodiles or just enjoy the sun on the beach. The food is excellent and the people working there are very welcoming. I highly recommend this... More

I stayed at Maks Resort twice in the same year, and absolutely loved it. Service is excellent, and the food very tasty. Little heaven corner, where you can relax, go on a boat ride and just enjoy the scenary. I definitely recommend this resort, only 1h away from the madness of Accra...

I've been to this region a few times and normally stay at the Manet Paradise Resort, on my most recent endeavour this resort was however shut which presented me with a search on the next venue to satisfy my accomodation needs.

After reading previous reviews it sounded like the place is great. It is well situated but the accommodation at Ghana Cedi 100 per night is very disapointing. The furniture in the room is very old and the A/C did not work. The restaurant does not cater for western meals and what they served us was badly prepared. If it were... More

I found this place to be amazing, the rooms are ensuite and built to an incredibly modern spec. Power showers, large screen tv, an abundant amount of channels, and the food and drink was very cheap, at least for a westerner. The view of the river is amazing, and the care put into maintaining the place really shows, bravo.
