“Nice place to stay: affordable, clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2010

The location is not completely ideal, it provides a beautiful view of ocean depending on your room location, but on a hill partly isolated from the coast itself.

The hotel itself was under slight renovations when we arrived, but what was finalized was more than adequate for our needs. The pool looked pristine, which was bounded by a cozy bar. The food from the restaurant was nothing short of delicious. The staff was extremely friendly and very easy to engage in conversation.

During the time of our arrival, there did not appear to be many guest at the hotel, so I can’t address if it is a good place to meet people, but this did allow us to cultivate a more intimate and personal relationship with the people that did reside at the hotel.

The rooms were relatively plain: contained a bed, desk, and air conditioner. The rooms seemed very clean. The bathroom was a bit small, but contained hot water. The internet connection in the hotel lobby was pretty slow.

There appears to be high potential for this location in the future, currently it is a very fine place to spend an evening after touring the Elimina Castle, or the Kakum. Not full of frills, but the Sanaa Lodge provided for a comfortable night stay.

I cannot understand this hotel's top rating in the Lonely Planet guide. It overlooks the beach, yes, but over a kilometer of hangar rooftops and dug up empty lots. The hotel is clean, but our door to the balcony did not open, half of the lights did not work, the internet connection was iffy at best. At breakfast time the staff had the radio on ultra loud, and when we requested it be turned down, it was by the merest bit. At other times young men who seem to be locals working or not in the hotel were unceremoniously draped over the sofas in the lobby.

Such a sad little hotel just outside city but in nice open position, well placed for excursions to local important castles/forts and to reach famous Kakum National Park. Rooms adequate and clean but facilities generally had obviously seen better days
( pool water not inviting ) Poor range of food on offer in the restaurant despite the impressive menu; but quite well cooked and tasty enough. Charming, helpful staff. Near beach

  • Liked — Clean, well-placed and friendly staff
  • Disliked — Physically run-down buildings. Needs serious money invested on it.
