Had a very good night’s sleep. The hotel is far enough from the craziness of downtown Accra to be quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to be convenient if you need to go anywhere.
The room was spacious. There was a TV, a fridge and a nice sisal mat next to the bed, good for scraping the sand off your feet.
The view from my room
My room was just a few steps from the beach. I was glad I hadn’t paid extra for a room right on the beach. A thicket of palm trees planted right in front of them obscured much of the beach view.
Early morning on the beach in Accra
The beach wasn’t terribly attractive here, but it was still nice to be near the water.
The hotel grounds, though, were extremely attractive with lush tropical plantings everywhere.
Entrance to the hotel restaurant
After a short walk on the beach, I still had an hour before Stanley was due to arrive. I spent it in the hotel’s internet cafe. I don’t remember seeing an internet cafe among the hotel’s amenities advertised on their website, so it was a good surprise. The equipment was new, and the connection fast.
The hotel staff at Afia African Villages Hotel was very helpful, and everything about my stay here was very pleasant.
