“One night stand”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

We travelled down as a family, and stayed in the family unit. Reception was very friendly and very quick to help us. The restaurant service was good and the Food well prepared. Unfortunately the room was filthy, not made up and ready for our arrival. Beds were not made. I don't think the place had been cleaned in a while. There was a DJ who played load music for 3 people until early hours of the morning. We booked out very early, despite plans for a linger stay.
Never again

Stayed March 2014, traveled with family

This is a tough one. The view from the restaurant beside the lake is breathtaking, as is the stillness in the early morning. The food was good, not great.Yet somehow the whole experience just did not come together. I stayed in Afrikiko for 3 night on a business trip so appreciated the addition of the view, but I know I would have been unhappy if I had to pay the bill or came to relax with the family. Approximately 100USD a night is too much for the basic rooms. I did not have problems with cleanliness and you could see that efforts were being made to make the place more attractive, but it is still basic. Also as someone working continuous problems with internet and poor attention from staff was somewhat problematic. There are different categories of rooms and I was in the most basic so this may not have helped. Also important to note, especially for those without a car or lone women travelers, the hotel is a distance from the main road if it has to be done on foot. I think I would come back to Afrikiko, and with adjusted expectations and requests for a better room it would be more enjoyable. There are fairly limited options in Akosombo.

Room Tip: Though they may be more expensive the chalet rooms seem to be further from noise and of better quali...

This was the 2nd place we stayed during our Ghana trip. The location seemed good-we intended staying for 5 nights but had to cut it short for the following reasons - the noise from the music. We wanted somewhere to chill, relax and enjoy nature, unfortunately the music was so loud it gave headaches all day and complaining has no effect whatsoever. The reception staff was unfriendly and showed little courtesy, although did help out a few times. After staying here 3 nights, we got tired of the food and had to go to Volta hotel restaurant to get a different variety. The internet is not so good.The hotel pricing don't justify the amount at all. All in all, it's a good place to stay a few days.
I must say that the waiters and kitchen staff are warm, friendly and nice.

How can you ask 135$ for a small, dirty room? During our trip in Ghana we got fantastic rooms and services for the same price. Unfortunately we arrived late and we could not go elsewhere. The receptionist was rude, I had to ask twice to get my change (1 hour later) and 4 times to get the receipt (3 hours later). The room was very small and not comfortable, the bathroom was dirty, small, with disconnected tiles, the sink was even funny: barbie-size, no shelf at all to put toiletries, only one towel per person,.. No WIFI, (they said it was available at the conference room but I tried for 1 hour without getting any connection) .
The breakfast was very poor, the most poor I ever had during this trip, just few things badly scattered on a table, then a boy served eggs and some vegetables, on the table-cover there were plenty of stains,... In the swimming pool there were plenty of leaves and different kinds of insects: very discouraging for a bath…. Fortunately it's the only place we didn't like during our nice trip in the amazing Ghana.

This hotel still got so much to do to bring the place up to standard. It seem to me like the management don't even care what happens there and how workers discharge duties. I went away from the noise and hassle of the city to have a quite time only to stay awake whole night till morning- cos there was a jam - loud music right by my door whole day till morning. I complained severally and they won't turn it down...I was restless ..the room stink , food was average but expensive about $35 plate of rice / fish and drinks ..room per night just too exorbitant about $235 and no discount whatsoever. From the outside it doesn't seem disappointing till walk into your room...beds look like baby cart. By all standard don't deserve to be called a resort. Got an amazing view though. Will only go there next time cos I wana see the view but to sleep NEVER!

Stayed there a few weeks ago

Bathroom door is so tiny you practically have to squeeze yourself to get in. There was a big stain on the bathroom wall as well. Whiles bathing the hot water just got really cold and didn't become hot again.

The fridge in the room had a big stain with an awful smell.

Internet does not work at all and as i had work to do it was a big blow.

Breakfast is substandard and for $75 a night service is just terrible.

Management better wake up!
