A fantastic beach resort in a...less than perfect...area of the country. The whole resort is noticeably westernised but this can be refreshing if you've been travelling around rural Ghana! The rooms (almost beach huts but indoors enough not to be drafty) are comfy and pleasant and come complete with mozzie nets. Lovely wetroom although be advised as is common in Ghana the water is not always running; sometimes you have to bucket flush and obviously the shower can be weak. This was barely a problem for us though.
The hotel restaurant was one of the best I came across in Ghana. My advice? Go for the local dishes - they're the cheapest and arguably the best. Great choice of breakfast and lunch dishes as well.
Sadly we missed out on the weekend nightlife, although this did mean we were one of the few guests and so had a very relaxing stay. The beach - which they warn you can be dodgy - is beautiful and it being so quiet we didn't encounter any problems at all. There are a few lovely craft stalls both on the beach and on the resort for browsing if you get bored of sunbathing. Having said that, it is very much a beach resort and I wouldn't recommend a long stay if you're easily bored.
One other tiny complaint is that the cocktail bar was closed the two days we were there, although I gather this was a one-off occurence and we were just unlucky.
