I stayed at the Movenpick for 3 nights and loved every one of them. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world (European, Australian and Asian 5 star hotels), and have to say that the Movenpick Accra is up to standard. I have to comment on the excellent service - the best I've had anywhere in Africa - staff genuinely take their jobs seriously and conduct themselves professionally. The decor is modern classic and beautifully finished. I had a superior room which had a full size en-suit plus king bed. Bed and pillows heavenly, view over the massive pool and gardens was lovely. The most remarkable feature of this hotel is that it is located right in the middle of the city but it feels like you are at a resort away from it all. I took a swim in that incredible pool - it was clean, not overly chlorinated and had both shallow water wading pool which would be excellent for toddlers and then down to the deep end. The food was fantastic for all meals - breakfast buffet was comprehensive, lunch buffet also comprehensive and I must mention they have the best fresh sushi / california roll / asian section. Dinner was also well worth it - an a la carte menu with a wide range of food to suit all tastes (steak, asian, West African, Italian, etc). I also went to the spa and had the best massage I've had in a while - a proper Thai hot oil massage with proper Thai massage therapists. Fantastic. I would also recommend the gym - full of brand new Life Fitness equipment (elliptical trainers, treadmills, weights (fixed and free)).
On a final note, I also used the hotel shuttle. If you are concerned about road safety and whether this service would be up to standard, rest assured that the hotel used a brand new Mercedes Minivan which had 3 point seat belts (i.e.: not just lap belts) and the driver drove very well. I would not hesitate to recommend using the airport shuttle service.
I can't wait to come back.
