After reading some of the negative reviews regarding this hotel it prompted me to write my own review,
Myself and my Husband stayed at Accra for a week on a room only basis, we arrived early for check in, as our room was not ready we was offered a courtsey room which we declined as we wanted to explore the grounds of the hotel we was very impressed with what we saw, the pool bar was lovely and a short walk took us onto a beautiful sandy beach, heaven!!!

Our room was an island view but because the doors are double glazed the noise from the traffic did not disturb us, and even with the doors opened it was not a problem.
We had no issues with the hot water, our room was cleaned every day. We requested a kettle and housekeeping was there within minutes. We also found the reception staff to be very helpful.

We did not eat at the hotel apart from snacks at the pool bar, but there are plenty of places to eat close by. If you are a fish lover the Oisten is the place to be on a Friday night, check out MO's. Fifteen mins on the bus from the hotel

If you want some good Jamaican food then make your way to Cheapside Bus station in Bridgetown ask for Joyce and Clover food hut, nuff food at a great price!!

The #1 advantage of staying in the property is its location: situated on the stunning Rockley beach. Otherwise Accra Hotel is a bit outdated for the prices they charge (as an example our ocean facing room did not have blinds but the old-school wooden indoor shutters that were set on a metal rail on the floor and one had to slide them in to close. Needless to say that they always fell off the rail due to the poor design/age and i had to basically lift them up every time and push them around - not so much fun after the 10th time one does this ).

I have been in quite a number of Carribean properties and would have to say that for $250 a night i would have expected a bit more. That being said the property is decent, well kept, but a bit dated. Do not stay in the rooms that do not face the ocean because you will face either a very busy road or a derelict hotel next door.

I am not big on wifi but my lady friend was complaining that you can only get it in the lobby (no room wifi), but you can pay downstairs and use the hotel computers. Also the food at the hotel is fairly expensive for what it is so would recommend trying other places around.

That being said focusing on the positive aspects: beautiful beach right next to the new boardwalk, right acorss from stores and restaurants, close to St. Lawrence gap.

Overall we had a good experience but would probably not return.

Accra is ideal for its location. Its situated on a major road. Across from the hotel there is a wide assortment of food (breakfast,lunch & dinner) and a grocery that is reasonably priced.Walking distance (about 10 minutes) from the hotel there is a fairly large shopping mall with a food court .Outside the hotel is a maxi taxi service that runs from Oistins(Major spot on a Friday night) to the capital Bridgetown.There is also a taxi hub next to the hotel that you can hire to take you around the country.This hotel is located on a beach front that is absolutely beautiful!
The service here is great. The staff is very warm and friendly and willing to assist.
The property however could do with some renovation.The door to the verandha in the ocean view room did not close properly nor did the cupboards on the television stand closed in neatly.Also the ice machine on the third floor was not functional.The continential breakfast was typical. There were an assortment of breads,butter,cheese,bacon,ham,eggs,fruits,juices.The pool was always clean and the property was well kept.
I had a great time here and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean or pool.
