This hotel is a way from Central Accra, but is only an extra few minutes and taxis are cheap.............it is a fabulous hotel and the dutch owner is trying hard to improve it, and indeed this is the best value for money hotel in Accra.
The food is very good and not expensive, but you do have to wait as they cook it fresh, the setting is fabulous, although is a shame that the sea is polluted there, the hotel staff clean it regularly, but this is a failing of The Ghanaian govt not the hotel.
This was my second time staying at the Movenpick and it hasn't disappointed me yet. The staff are very friendly and ready to help. They are very professional and knowledgeable about places to visit in the area. Unlike some of the other hotels I have stayed at the beds are very comfortable and the room is modern and up to date.

Enjoyed my stay there. Staff were always pleasant and willing to help. The hotel provided shuttle bus to and fro the airport which was convenient. There were availability of taxis so it was easy to get around. The hotel has a fitness centre, tennis court and good size swimming pool which for me was wonderful. A wide variety of meals were served in there buffet breakfast and the room service meals though not extensive in choice tasted very good.
We have experience of the area around the hotel so chose this as we knew where we would be in Accra. The other two reasons for choosing it was the offer of transport to.from the airport and a swimming pool. The pool was a disappointment as the tiles around the waters edge were grease stained and had not been cleaned in a long time. Furthermore, the area had no sunshades although there was evidence of them being there in the past and the only seating was chairs, no sunloungers.
We were leaving on a Sunday and the hotel informed us that they could not get us to the airport as the one driver who worked Sundays was ill and it took a bit of persuading on our part to get them to hire and pay for a local taxi which would have cost them so little, having seen what they handed over to the driver.
Breakfast was OK but the same everyday (baked beans, omellette, toast with tea or coffee, fresh pineapple, cornflakes and fruit juice. A choice of egg styles would have been nice. At least they use proper milk, unlike most Ghanaian hotels we have encountered who use condensed milk.
Dinner was very expensive and the portions very small so we walked for about 20 minutes to a local restaurant who give much better choice and portions for less money.
We returned to this hotel at the end of our stay in Accra as we celebrated our wedding here 5 years ago. The hotel has undergone significant development and upgrade since then and we were very pleased with our stay. The room was large, well decorated and clean. The new swimming pool, conference centre and upgraded gym facilities have enhanced the hotel. The wifi connection around the hotel was good and we really enjoyed the food and cocktails. The beach access at this hotel is also an added bonus. The only downside for me is that the communal areas are often quite warm, the air conditioning in the rooms is fantastic though. Overall a very good stay and we will be returning in the future!
