Be sure to ask for a beach front unit for sea view and sounds of the waves. The rooms are comfortable enough with good air conditioning and adequate en-suite bathrooms. Meals are basic Ghanaian food and service is overall friendly. There is a nice long beach for easy walking including up to the local village and boat launch area. There...

Pretty far off the beaten path. But nice beach and the hotel tries. Great people. The resort is a bit tired. The rooms rustic. The Wi-Fi worked about 20% of the time. Nice beach but I'm told they just cleaned it for a music festival taking place that weekend. Seemed like a large millennial crowd there to drink and get...

We had high hopes for Busua as friends had stayed there before, but were shocked by the poor service and conditions of the hotel. We booked an exec room and in the course of 3 days experienced electrocution from all metal fixtures in the bathroom (electricity was not grounded, then huge flooding when they tried to fix it (both in...

Absolutely beautiful! Oceanfront rooms are definitely the way to go! Easy walking access to the beach, and plenty of sitting areas. The water is clear and the waves are awesome! The outdoor restaurant is steps from the water, but does need better mosquito repelling for night dining, and the swimming pool chemicals were off producing green, murky water. There's also...

We stayed in a basic room. Had a KingSized mattress. Bathroom had water heater for showering. Room had excellent air conditioning. Wonderful complimentary breakfast. Great beach access and walking with clean sand area. There was a fantastic exercise room with at least 3 m height windows overlooking the Gulf of Guinea. Evening meal options good as well.

I am not sure if this 100% the fault of the resort but we were extremely disappointed after a 6 hours drive from Accra. We have booked with Alex who is supposed to be the sales person. Arriving there we were surprised to see no booking for us and the staff was somehow rude in answering us and cooperating with...

We were planning to have drinks and lunch at the hotel. Upon hearing that the wifi would cost $2.00 for 30 minutes we chose to eat elsewhere. 1 GB of data is only 20cd. The entire hotel and restaurants were almost empty.

From Saturday 15 – Monday 18 October 2016 we were guests in the Busua Beach Resort in Busua, Ghana. This about 60 rooms resort is ideally located alongside a marvelous tropical beach, almost directly bordering the fisherman village of Busua. All rooms are air-conditioned and most are located inside small bungalows in an extensive garden. Our large double-room was the...

Ok so we travelled as a group for a two day training. reception was ok. Would have loved to be nextdoor to my colleague though. Room was overlooking the beautiful and clean beach. I loved the coconut for breakfast everyday. Breakfast service was always pleasant throughout.

Probably the cleanest beach area in the country...has a great view of the sea and everything around is kept green, tidy and we'll shaped I don't no if this hotel is a 3*or 5* hotel..but the rooms are average! I think the place is well kept!...the workers are very friendly and I enjoyed the sea food served...maybe the food is...

“There must be easier places to get to. If you're looking for low $$ beachside and you're a bit of a bohemian - this may be your place.”

“Don't go here!!! Executive rooms (which are the most expensive) are also furthest away from the beach.”
