I really enjoyed my stay at The Orange Beach Resort. The staff was awesome and the food was really very good. During my visit to Ghana, I set a budget of $20-$25 per day for lodging which is not high end but will get you decent accomodations. This resort did not disappoint.
The Orange Beach Resort is located on the waterfront in downtown Cape Coast just a few minutes away from the Dungeons. They have several different types of accomodations to include private, shared and dorm style rooms. They offer breakfast with your rental and you can add additional meals for $5 each. The resort seems to be a community gathering place so you will be able to mingle with the locals. On the weekend, they turn the area in fromt of the deck into a full beach party.
Evans is the owner and Alexxis is the chef/front desk. If you stay at the resort, please tell them I referred you.
