Accra Beach Hotel & Spa
Travel Blogs from Christ Church
The cruise ship docked at Barbados around 07:00. Once we got off the ship we went direct to our hotel. We were all anxious to go to the beach. I remembered bobbing in the waves at St. Maarten and I was looking forward to doing that again.
As soon as we got our swim suits on we all headed outside. In addition to my suit, I was wearing a t- …
We arrived at the airport in Barbados at about 16:20 yesterday. Once inside the terminal we had to wind our way through a massive line at immigration.
Once we exited the building we were paired up with our taxi driver, Emmerson. The ride to the hotel was 51B$, about $25. He was a very nice young man. He said he would be happy to pick us up …
So, you have all been there. The crowded airport, the oversold flight. The annonucement that we need "five volunteers" and the reward--free round trip anywhere? $500 vouchers? The math is always difficult lately for my wife and I as we are usually traveling with our kids. This trip we are off on our own and the announcement at San Juan for a …
We treated ourselves to a cooked breakfast at the hotel this morning, partly because we ran out of milk and I sure wasn't going to risk fetching some from the shops and wading back through the sea like the other day. The news on the ipod is not good, I connected it to the computer and after a while it recognised it, I had hope for a while but it won’t turn on. If anyone can fix it let me know.
... on my way, saw a ton of monkeys storming the grounds. NO WHERE IN THE LITERATURE I READ did they say that there were monkeys here!! This pleased me quite a bit as monkeys were one of the main draws to my trip to Costa Rica. Who doesn't like monkeys?? I was surprised there was nothing about them when I checked in as they are quite mischievous and will take anything they can of yours, especially if they're shiny. I made a mental note to myself to curb ...

I booked a trip with my boyfriend for 4 days and 3 nites at this hotel.
Can't Wait To Go Back!
My husband and I went on our honeymoon in February 2004 and we had a fabulous time in Barbados. The staff at Accra Beach were friendly, courteous and made our stay memorable. The most incredible beach I have been too and the only way to describe the sand is that it was like "flour". Great restaurants in the area there was lots to do and see. I can't wait to go back! (Especially for the Rum punch!)
We stayed at the Accra Beach Hotel in February this year for one week and spent the 2nd week cruising the islands. We had a fabulous time at the Hotel, the facilities were excellent and the staff were second to none, couldn't do enough for you. The beach was beautiful as was the weather and everything was immaculate. We liked it so much that we have booked again for next year!
A great experience at the Accra Beach
I've stayed at the Accra Beach on business on a number of occasions and have found it very comfortable and the employees courteous and obliging. I enjoyed it so much that I took my wife and two children there in February this year (2004) - they loved it and were made to feel very special. The employees always remember my name, even though there may be a year between visits. The Manager, Jon Martineau, is a great guy and runs a tight ship. Remember, this is the caribbean and things don't happen in a hurry so be prepared to chill out and enjoy.
We just came back from holidays in February, 2004, stayed at the Accra Beach & Hotel Resort. Our stay was outstanding, the Hotel Staff were amazing. They went out of their way to accomodate us in every way. My husband went deep sea fishing, and had caught five big fish, brought one back to the hotel, and the Chef was delighted to cook it for us and served it at the barbeque. The front staff informed us on busing and we were able to take the bus up and down the coast, taking in all the scenery. I highly recommend staying here and would definately do so again.
For mrs celia roach
i am not here to write a report but could you please help i am trying to reach a mrs.Celia Roach., she works at your reception desk. If you can can you please forward her my e-mail address. thanking you kindly.
Stayed here for 4 nights in November 03. Great location set on the beach - found the staff extremely helpful and friendly - rooms excellent - particularly the newly refurbished block. Superb pool and walk right onto the beach. Hotel very handy for Bridgtown and nearby restaurants but the food at the hotel was also very good.Rate it a 4 star. This hotel did have coffee and tea making facilities in the room, but many Caribbean hotels do not - a tip is to take a small kettle and brew your own.Star rating in hotels is always difficult - depends upon the country - recently stayed in a 4star in France which would be a 2star elsewhere.
First, the hotel is advertised as recently renovated. When we arrived, we found out that recent means 6 years ago and this is 2002. We requested a quiet room. If you stay on the street side it may be quieter than the ocean side. We were kept up by two parties at poolside until midnight and 2 am. The staff was not very helpful in addressing our complaint. In fact, when they tried to offer some token of apology by giving us free breakfast, they could not even do that right. We found that the meals had been charged to our room and they would only take one off. They hotel ran out of towels and chairs. What seemed like a very fine hotel turned out not to be. As experienced travelers, these problems occur, but at least we expect some attention from management to address our concerns. Therefore, just do not expect the luxury resort that the Web site seems to project and be prepared for less than satisfactory attention to problems as they occur.
My husband and I stayed at this fine hotel for our honeymoon. Our room was a gorgeous ocean-view and was supplied with a gift basket and champagne for us to celebrate with. The room was clean and we enjoyed MTV and HBO on the satellite. We had breakfast each morning at the restaurant by the pool and it wasn't too bad. There were varieties of fresh fruit, cereal, toast, beans and plantain (a personal fave). The food was sometimes cold. The pool was our favourite place to relax. It was huge with a gorgeous waterfall and pool bar. They make the greatest rum punches with nutmeg here. At lunch we often ordered from the bar menu and the food was pretty exotic. Flying fish is a real specialty. The beach is beautiful and there is a place right beside the hotel where you can rent chairs or jet-skis. Christ Church is one of the best locations in Barbados as it is so close to everything. You can walk to The Gap for some shopping and amazing restaurants. Bridgetown is a definite must to visit. We were very impressed with our stay and would go back any time to the Accra.
We have stayed at the ACCRA beach twice and would go back again if------and that is a big if. The hotel is lovely the rooms very large and the hotel is right on the beach. The big if--- is the ACCRA are letting the place for Club Membership this means that any local can pay around £300 per year to use all facilities. You have locals with their picnic baskets and loads of children especially at weekends jumping in and out of the pool. They also rent out rooms for conferences and outside weddings etc. and guests are not allowed in certain areas. This is such a shame because we loved our first stay and this all happened the second stay. The gardens are often filled with large tents for outside parties. We found that this is not a holiday hotel more like a business hotel. Never mind we have found somewhere else to stay now.Such a shame to spoil a lovely hotel.
