Only just got around to writing a short review for South Gap.
Stayed here for the Kadooment / crop over festival August 2012.
The hotel is in a great location if you are young and looking for a base from which to party from. It has plenty of small shops, bars and resturants near by.
The lovely Dover beach is at the end of the road, 10 mins walk away. and Accra beach is about 10 mins drive away.
The rooms were basic but clean and had everything you could need. The best rooms to get are the lower ones as they are more enclosed and have sea views. The higher up ones get more noise and could be facing the road side.
The resturant / Bar within the hotel was good value and nice.
The swimming pool area was clean and had plenty of sunbeds.
Overall, for a cheap hotel in a great location, this is a great value hotel for young people who dont mind noise every night.
However, if you are someone who likes to get their sleep on holiday, are a family with children, have trouble climbing loads of stairs (or the elderly) or a couple whos not looking to be up all night partying - then spend abit more money and stay in a hotel on the beach or at least away from the loud bars. (Ocean two / southern palms / turtle beach).
