My preferred location in Bassam. Run by 'Bassman' & family, clean double bedrooms with small en-suite shower room for 5,000CFA in the centre town where you can go out & explore or use a taxi (200CFA) to get down to the beach (not safe for swimming!)
Lovely family who look after their guests, very quiet location & handy for eating out, going down to the market, internet cafes etc.
Did not stay here but this is another hotel right on the beach. There are several that line the beach here. Maybe slightly more upmarket than Boblin but a beach is a beach. It is a bit closer to everything in case you don't feel like walking that far. It also has a restaurant and a bar
Did not stay here but at 10,000 CFA per night we should have giving it a shot. Did not see to much traffic here since it does not sit directly on the beach (it is a 5 min walk from it) If you are walking from the bus stop to the beach you will pass this place on your left. I don't think it has the appeal that the beachfront places do but it does have it's local charm.
I've listed the web address below so check it out on your own.
If you have the $$$ this is probably the best place to stay in Grand Bassam (the beach is a bit idiryt due to all the hawkers nearby but the hotel is modern and beautiful.
If you are walking in from the bus station you cannot mis the place. It also has the most beach frontage of any of the hotels on the beach.
The Ritz of Bassam
Boblin was one of the cheaper places we could find on the beach. For 12,000 CFA per night we got A/C that worked, private loo and a queen bed that was in good shape. The place like the rest is popular on the weekends so call ahead if you plan to spend Fri or Sat night here.
Staff speaks enough English to get by and you are steps from the beach.
Just a great place to relax. The bar gets busy on the weekend but they have several padded lounge chairs set up on the beach. Be weary of the beach as there is a bit of a shore pound so if you are not a strong swimmer you will need to stay close to shore. During the weekends the beach gets a bit crowded but during the weekdays you a likely to have th beach to yourselves.
As you can see, most of the hotels are located along the coastline.
I slept in the "Auberge de la Plage du Parrain", it was a cheap, but clean hotel.
Great service and excellent kitchen.
