The Hideout Lodge is the perfect beach retreat. Not only is the location perfect, but the prices are very honest as well. We found this place the best value for money we encoutered during our three weeks in Ghana.
Hideout Lodge is located right at the beach a few hundred meters from the town of Butre. It benefits from a beautiful beach with a safe ocean to swim in. A perfect place to relax for a few days. The off the beaten track location makes it a little bit harder to get to, but it's well worth the trip. You can catch a taxi to Butre and walk the last few hundred meters across the foot bridge and through the sand. But if you charter a taxi, tell him to drive straight to the lodge (there is a dirt road that leads directly to the lodge). We paid 20 cedi from Agona Junction and 35 cedi direct to Takoradi.
We stayed in one of the chalets. It was very clean (if you leave your key at the reception, they clean your room every day) and everything (shower, toilet) worked perfectly. The only thing you have to accept are the occasional power cuts. But hey, it's Ghana and it happens everywhere. The only downside is that the chalet was a bit moist (and you can smell that). So make sure to open the curtains as much as possible and let that sea breeze in. Works a lot better than the fan by the way.
Food is top, although service sometimes is a bit unreliable. Ask if they have what you want before you order. On several occasions they only told us they didn't have what we ordered only a few minutes before the time we ordered it for. But prices are very honest!
When you do the canoe trip with them (highly recommended by the way), do verify what is included and make sure the boat man gets paid too!
