The time-honoured concept of offering genuine “service with a smile” is a rare thing to encounter these days but the idea is alive and well in the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel in Accra, Ghana. From the very first phone calls from the UK, the standard of customer service we were offered was exceptional. Thanks to British Airways, the 2-hour flight delay made us worry that the free hotel transport we had requested would be long gone when we arrived but as we exited Accra’s brand spanking new Terminal 3, it was great to see our name on a board held by Mr Hammond, the Regency’s friendly and approachable driver who made negotiating Accra's chaotic traffic seem simple.. Check-in was smooth and professional but rather than being met with a forced grin common to many reception desks, Alpha, the duty manager, seemed genuinely glad to greet us and welcomed us with a much-appreciated chilled coconut. Things got better as, due to the hotel being very full, we were upgraded to a suite. If first impressions really do count, Alpha had scored a direct hit. Check out was equally painless with every effort being made to ensure that all was in order and accounts balanced. Our baggage was left behind reception as we checked out in the morning. On returning in the evening for the free transport to the airport to catch our flight back to UK, we were very generously allowed to use a spare room to change into warmer clothes more fitted to the English weather. Our room was spotlessly clean and very spacious. The incredible solid, hand-carved wooden furniture featuring traditional African scenes was amazing and this was replicated throughout the hotel. The furniture on the poolside patio was incredible. I cannot remember sitting around a table where each of the chairs had been individually carved from a single piece of wood – not as joint in sight. All of the rooms are in excellent condition with the blessing of air conditioning to help cope with the high temperatures and generally add to the comfort. The ever-present, vigilant and strong 24-hour security team ensured that access to the site was restricted and this helped enhance the feeling of being kept safe. The hotel is very well located being more or less midway between the airport and the city centre which provides easy access to the Accra’s vibrant night life and restaurants. The food in the hotel’s dining room is good with a menu featuring many local Ghanaian dishes and we ate there most evenings. Our stay at The Regency was amazing. The friendly and helpful staff give a true warm Ghanaian feel to the place. It did not take very long to get to know each of the staff members we came into contact with and greet them by name. I am in total agreement with the comment in Misty B’s review that you enter the hotel as a guest but leave as a friend. This hotel is a real gem and is infinitely preferable to the many over-priced “Westernised” chain hotels that are the alternatives. Staying at the Regency reminds you that you are in Ghana and not some annex to a European or American or Dutch franchise. We will most certainly stay at the Coconut Grove Regency next time we visit Ghana and would recommend the place to anyone visiting the country. Give the hotel a try – you will not be disappointed.

Upon check in I notice that the Staff was excellent. I was greeted with a fresh coconut that was nice and cold, I immediately felt at home. There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed and Vida at the front reception made me feel that way every time I entered the hotel. The rooms were such a great size and ALWAYS clean best part of my day was coming there and taking a shower and preparing myself to have a cocktail. Derrick the bartender always recommended a nice drink and had enjoyable conversation about Ghana and what I discovered. He was just so easy to talk to and made my dinning experience so much more enjoyable. The food at the hotel was delicious. I spent a lot of time just relaxing in the courtyard or sitting by the pool and enjoy the sounds of Accra. Martin our concierge went above and behind to help us make our stay in Ghana a memorable one. He actually went to the Art Center with us to purchase gift for our family and was just one of the nicest individuals I have ever met. If you are looking for place to stay that you enter as guest and leave as friends then Coconut Grove Regency Hotel is it. I will return to Ghana again here is my home away from home.

Coming from the U.S. I didn't know what to expect with the hotels in Ghana but this hotel was really mind blowing. Everytime we walked into the hotel, they opened the door, they smiled and greeted us. From the front desk, to the restaurant, to the room and laundry attendants to the maintenance workers each one had a friendly personality and went out of there way to make sure our stay was exceptional. We stayed here for 6 days, and didn't have to worry about anything because they made sure we had what we needed to feel comfortable at the hotel and in Ghana. The staff also recommended places in the area to eat and socialize. The service was remarkable and I will never forget about my experience at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel. It is definitely "MEMORIES WORTH REPEATING." If you're looking for a place to stay in Accra, Ghana, I would truly recommend this place.

The rooms are great because they are ALWAYS clean. The bedding is fresh and the shower towels are clean. Hotel staff assist with any little request. They are truly amazing. I would book this place again simply because of the service. The restaurant provides some pretty good food too. I would recommend the coconut chicken and the fried plantains.

I never stayed overnight but we were treated to the food and ambiance. Certainly not disappointed and at night looked like there was quite a lot to explore of this hotel just amenity wise let alone surrounding areas. Everyone seemed to be friendly.
