    Hotel to ourselves! But worth every penny spent

    Flew back to U.K. from Barbados yesterday having spent a wonderful 8 Days at the Accra Beach and Spa Hotel in Christchurch. In all our efforts to get to Barbados given the high level of Covid requirements before (and during) our stay, I was hoping the hotel and surroundings would live up to expectation. And we were not disappointed! There were just 4 rooms in use throughout the whole of the hotel at Accra has only just reopened. This was a reminder of the impact COVID has had on tourism. Where Rockley beach would typically be lined with sun beds for hundreds of guests my partner and I pretty much had the beach and hotel to ourselves for our entire stay. Not all restaurants in site are open but the main coconut cove restaurant was open for breakfast and the beachside bar for drinks. Whilst the team is understandably smaller, there is a genuine There is a real and genuine ‘charm’ with every service we received at Accra Beach Hotel and Spa. A mix of local charm and international professionalism I couldn’t fault. There are no negatives but a few observations. Firstly we were upgraded to an ocean view deluxe room. It was huge! A giant whirlpool bath and queen size bed and a huge balcony overseeing what I only describe as one of the most beautiful beaches on this planet! But it cannot go unnoticed that the rooms are slightly dated. Small renovations would greatly enhance the class of this hotel, and I only mean small... things like the power sockets and cables, the shutter blinds between bathroom and bedroom, the bedside lamps... all need updating. Likewise the grounds are very tropical but it was clear some renovations are needed.... it was clean and well appointed but it has the potential to be stunning with a few jobs here and there There is a family feel to this hotel. The GM and his family were always present and couldn’t do enough to ensure our stay was special. Anthony and Gustavos on front desk were super helpful as was Cherry-Ann And Neil, Cortez and Fabian were equally charming and made our stay very special In terms of Covid... I, like many Brits... overly panicked. You do absolutely need a negative test 72 hours before ‘arrival’, you do need to record your temperature every morning and evening and WhatsApp it to the Health Ministry and you are required (at no cost) to have a repeat test a few days into your vacation which is over and done in less then an hour and results the next day, but it didn’t hamper nor hinder our short vacation. Barbados have absolutely got it right when it comes to protocol and COVID measures... masks are mandatory in shops and your hands are always sprayed before entering. The hotel and other restaurants will also take your temperature before entering. I promise it sounds more taxing than what it actually is... just go with the flow and abide by the rules and you will have an awesome time And finally, the gem of this entire vacation was Rockley beach. Simply and utterly paradise! Pictures don’t do this beach justice.... the ocean was crystal clear, the temperature tepid and warm and sea life a plenty. Make the most of The tours and water sports that are easily and readily available Thank you Accra Beach and thank you Barbados. We will be back one day. Thank you for giving us the charm and beauty we hoped for in this vacation. You did Barbados very proud

    Great location and view!

    Visited with family of 4 and had a wonderful time at the Accra Beach Hotel. Beach was by far the best part! Gorgeous and not crowded. They had a nice large pool with swim up bar but it was slightly chilly, although nothing unbearable. The location is prime! It is within walking distances of a cute market area (Quayside Market) with some shops and casual restaurants. There’s also a small little lunch and drink area right off the beach. You can walk the boardwalk to go to a nice Asian restaurant or walk the amazing beach down to an awesome casual restaurant with great drinks and wings! The rooms need updating, as does the decor of the rest of the hotel. However the open air lobby is nice with a gorgeous view straight to the beach. Try to upgrade for pool or water view. We stayed on island view and you hear the busses and cabs beeping their horns all night long. Not the hotel’s fault of course. When we return back to Barbados, we will stay at Accra again.

    Lovely Views and location

    We came here after a cruise for four nights and overall really enjoyed our stay. There was a bit of confusion when we checked in but was told to have a free drink at the bar and it would be ready asap. Mrs W had a rum punch and I had a banks beer. Be careful with the rum punches as they do pack a punch ??. We got upgraded to a sea view on the second floor and the room was clean and tidy and fine for us. We had problems with the toilet flushing ( I think they are aware of the problem as when i reported it before I'd finished what i was saying she knew) but it was sorted on our return to the room. The view from it was breathtaking. We were all inclusive and had bands which we still had to sign for which was a bit of a pain and felt like the bands detracted in us receiving a more attentive service if you know what I mean. Some of the staff were ok but i felt many had a bit of a chip on their shoulder and didnt do much smiling. The all inclusive was a bit of guesswork regarding eating and drinking. In some cases ( in the restaurants only one open on an evening) the all inclusive in some cases had a separate menu. The food wasn't like a bun fight it was top quality which suited us. To sum the positives up the location was excellent, room clean and airy, food was a excellent standard, pools were fine,the beach stunning, views to die for ?? Slight negatives quite alot of staff surly, signing for drinks and meals even though all in is confusing at time ??. Would I go back yes definately when I'd saved up again??

    Not good

    First impressions weren't great. We got a pool view room, when we expected an ocean view room, but you could just about see the sea...... On going down to the beach bar, we were surrounded by wasps... sat down and saw two large rats run out from the shrubs nearby. Thse were seen several times during the stay. Covid 19 reared its head during the weeks stay, so I suppose the miserable faces on most of the staff was to be expected. There was a few exceptions to this, notably Everton, on duty in the breakfast buffet, Yvonne at the evening restaurant, and Paul working behind the bars. Then the hotel decided to renew the drains to the swimming pool overflow system, so the swimming pool was shut for the last 2 days of our stay. (why not wait until the hotel was closed ??) Add to that a very confusing all inclusive system, where we had to sign for all meals and drinks despite wearing the all inclusive arms bands. I'm very glad we didn't have to pay the prices quoted for some basic meals, E.G over £100 for a bbq meal, and the same for a buffet curry meal. (for two)

    The location of the hotel and the beach are great but the hotel needs refreshing. Very nice pool and lounge area with plenty of loungers. Plenty of loungers and umbrellas on the beach. The restaurants were just ok.
