“Not sure........”
Reviewed February 15, 2008

Would love to write a review for this hotel. Booked it as our 1st place in Ghana during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations. Arranged pick-up at the airport, and when we couldn't find anyone, I called them, only to find out they had given our rooms to somebody else.....

At 11pm, having landed after an 8hour flight from England, we were not impressed. We arranged an alternative with some of the touts hanging around outside the airport, but I was very unhappy with Joy Family Lodge.

It may be the greatest hotel in Accra, but make sure you're rooms are not given away.....

  • Liked — It was on the internet
  • Disliked — They let our rooms to others before we arrived, but didn't tell us..................

From the first day I arrived at the lodge I can tell that this was a perfect choice. The staff were so friendly and hospitable and treated me like one of the family. Being an American I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the rooms , western style toilet and the best tasting Talapia I have ever had. After being there for 3 weeks it started to feel like a home away from home. The lodge is in a town called Pokuase and is about an hour from the main city of Accra but if you are just looking for a nice place to stay while you are doing some volunteer or mission work this is the place to be. If you forgot to bring something from home, don't worry, they will get it for you.

  • Liked — The great hospitality of the staff and cleanliness.
