My family and I arrived the Ramada from Lagos at 03;00hrs ! We were dead tired after the time consuming drive ( I drove ! ) and only wanted to flop into our beds.
I've titled my review "What do you want to see " because, as with life, it all depends on your perception, outlook and experiences, If you wish to see it as a wonderful place to stay ( which we did ) then you will.......but at the same time if you wish to see it as a place with multiple flaws and nit pick every detail....then you'll see it as such too !
The reception of the hotel wasn't too inviting nor did the infrastructure look too pleasing either at that time of the morning ! The front office staff were alert and were most helpful in offloading all our luggage.....we don't travel light !....from our vehicle.
Our room was good, the air conditioning worked well and the kids were happy.
In the morning my perception of the Ramada changed for the better.....We could now see the place in daylight and it seemed far more appealing. We had a buffet breakfast, which was an event in itself, in a thatch roofed restaurant with an ocean-view. The food was good..please try the passion fruit juice, we all couldn't get enough of it !
The Ramada also served a buffet dinner, which to our delight, we found was free ! We looked forward to every visit to the restaurant.
There was a Christmas party for children with enough activities to keep our children busy and a live band on Boxing Day.....altogether, with the swimming pool, interesting things to do that kept us from going out.
The Ramada staff are a credit to their organization.....I forgot my bag at the breakfast table with our passports and cash....silly me !....and the staff kept it for me in a safe place until i came in to collect it. It could have been much worse as i've been to hotels where you would never see that bag again.
All in all we have a very pleasant stay and were kind of sad to leave. Value for money wise the Ramada is excellent.....our room, with the extra bed for the kids was $175/night.....we've stayed in $500/night hotels in Accra and the cost differential is not justifiable considering what the Ramada offers you.
Our family will surely be back.....a visit to the beautiful restaurant is enough reason.....when next we're in Ghana !
A word of note....The Ramada is far from the city center and with Accra traffic you could spent upwards of 1 hour getting to the main city. I don't believe that this is a location for a business traveler, unless, of course, your business is in this locale.
As a family destination it is an ideal place to unwind with your kids...or if you're a couple/alone, a good place to rest and relax by the ocean.
Hope this helps my fellow travelers !
