“An oasis in the bustling city.” I went to this property after my family and I had suffered several bouts of malaria in central Ghana. We found the house to be very spacious (our family size is eight people), clean and practical. The kitchen is large a

“Comfortable Environment” We thought it was an above average neat home with a big compound for children to play. We felt safe when the children played outside alone since the house is gated with tall walls. Everything went just fine.

“Very pleasant stay with wonderful, caring hosts !” My daughter and I were in Ghana, Accra on a holiday trip in January / February. We stayed in the 'Royal Palm Apartment' for three weeks and had the most pleasant and enjoyable experience. The hosts Bi
“Really home from home” The villa offers everything you need in a home. Staff are very helpful and location is just what I required as its within easy reach of central Accra and Tema. Lots of shops and bars in the area. Only down side is the very loud

Thanks for the review Aksel. As we have discussed via email, some of the points you brought up were a bit of an unpleasant surprise and we would have been very happy to try to address them if we had known earlier. In the end, I am glad you had an overall nice stay, and I am sorry for the inconveniences.
There are a few things I would like to mention since many future (potential!) guests will read this:
- Cleaning. There seems to have been a lot of miscommunication between the cleaner and the guests. Aksel's girlfriend took over the cleaning without informing us that they were unhappy with the cleaner, and the cleaner seems to have understood this as the guests' preference not to have an outsider involved in their affairs.
We do have a clean and well maintained apartment, but once guests are in the apartment, we allow them to coordinate the cleaning schedule as they wish. Unfortunately - tautologically - we can't make sure the cleaning is being done if we don't know that it is not being done.
- Equipment. We do have pots, pans and plentiful lighting that has been sufficient for many guests, but we seem to have run into a problem of mismatched expectations. To be clear, we are not equipped for elaborate meals (this is not the apartment to host your next Topchef Accra edition tournament!), but most simple meals should be covered.
The road to the villa is an uphill struggle to say the least. The location is not as near to the beach as I had hoped. Walking to the beach is difficult, as you need to meander through local residen… More
