HOW TO Guide

How To with sports facilities at hotels



WELCOME  TO  GHANA !


Using Accra hotels for swimming, fitness and sports.


The How To Guide’s “How To go about sports” and “How To stay fit” help you find out
where to practice a large number of sports and fitness activities.
As an extension, here is information on sport facilities at hotels.

 

Hotels represent additional venues to practice sports or fitness that can be very convenient as far as location because they may be close to your office or home. Alternatively, they can be a good destination for week-ends, for both relaxation and physical activity. Hotels are also recreational areas that often provide complete food and beverages services.

Sports facilities are free of charge for hotels guests but visitors can use them either for a daily fee or take out a convenient Membership.

The information in “How To with sports at hotels” is organized by location and hotel instead of sports. Since every hotel’s location, settings, facilities, feel and clientele differ, we have opted not to make a comparative table based on rates only.

We invite you to visit the hotels and check the facilities thoroughly,
considering your own requirements and taste,
