Nice location overlooking the sea and walkable to Jamestown, but the place feels rundown, our room was pretty grotty, communal areas full of people dealing weed, supposedly locked door between bar and accommodation was never locked meaning anyone could wander through, didn't feel safe

We arrived at Magic Beach Resort and first of all, the payment system is quite difficult, and the discountsystem is very hard to figure out. The prices for the rooms are generally low, but when writing this review I am still torn between what was most important: The amazing view over the ocean, or the damp, stuffy condition of the...

Really chilled atmosphere and great place to meet some of the locals. Room could have been a bit cleaner but sufficed for our needs. Beautiful views of the oceans. Would recommend. Tip for finding the place: use to be called Akuma Village, some taxi drivers don't know the new name.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Rising Phoenix Magic Beach Resort. The service was brilliant. The owner and staff was so nice. Chilled and relaxed and very good food. The hotel is a budget hotel but with fantastic ocean view and very high value for the money. Thanks Phoenix for all the help - Ida & David

Currently writing this review in my room and the Magic Phoenix Hotel. Waves of the sea fill the my room and have just enjoyed a wonderful vegetarian meal at the bar.

The rooms are simple, but OK for the price (73 cedi). The only noise is from the sea. So no sounds from the restaurant and no sounds from the street, which is quite exceptional for a hotel in a city like Accra. The area around the hotel is not nice and looks like a slum. During the day this is... More

Thankyou. Sorry about the noise. We do monitor it, and will bear your comments in mind. I hope you can come again. I think the area outside is safe. To be doubly sure, take a taxi to the door, and let the night security welcome you! More

For price and location this place in Accra is hard to beat. It is by no means a beach "resort" but it is very cheap. Rooms are basic beach "huts" spectacularly located with a sheer drop down to the beach and the bay of Guinea.

“They have started modernising rooms. 2 are now modern and with a/c but they are usually long time booked. The others are basic but clean and som with private bathroom. When they are modernised also this place will be really nice!”
