I needed some peace and quiet, so I zipped out to Sankofa for a Saturday night stay. I ended up staying an extra night - leaving before 5 a.m. on Monday morning to make it back to Accra for work was worth it. This was not my first stay at Sankofa and won't be my last. I spent the entire... More

I loved Sankofa because it makes you feel like you're the only person/ group there at any given time. The food was delicious and always fresh, the area is so spacious and the beach is one of the cleanest I've ever been to on the Ghana coast. The staff was very helpful and made us feel special, and Masao himself... More

I have visited a lot of beach resorts in Ghana, and every where I received a very warm welcome. It did not matter I stayed for some short time or I stayed a night. Sankofa beach house has the worst staff working. Specifically a person named EDWARD. A very stupid and a non-profeesional staff. Does not even know how to... More

Our response to this review is quite short. Edward and I have no recollection of this guest. He never complained to us and indicated he had a problem. We have no idea what his problem with Edward is since his visit was without incident. Edward is a supervisor at the Beach House and has been heregoing on five years. He... More

I spent my honeymoon at the sankofa beach resort in nov 2010 and it was superb. Masoe treated us like royalty, it was very peaceful and refreshing to fall asleep to d sound of the evening tide and the food was heavenly. I'm planning to go back this time with my now bigger family.

I stayed one night at Sankofa Beach House and wish I could stay more. This is definitely a place I will come back to. After a month-long trip through Ghana, Togo, and Benin, it was wonderful to find a place with excellent service, amazing food, and all at an inexpensive price. The owner is an extremely knowledgeable and friendly American... More

Room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in the larger chalet near the sea. The rate at usd160 a night was a bit high but then all the beach resorts in Ghana and hotels in general are priced on the higher side relative to countries where the tourism industry is more developed. I guess they have to get by on... More

Can't compare to any other place. An unique experience is guaranteed and expected each time I stay there; which I do at leAst 4 times a year. I do many day trips there as well, just to enjoy a good meal and good conversation. Anyone who I know is traveling to Ghana I tell them to Add sankofa. It's like... More

I found this place on the internet and went because of the photos and reviews. When I arrived I was happy the photos did it justice (which was a relief because the road leading up to the resort will probably be the roughest jeep wrangler worthy you will encounter in your entire trip!). On the phone I was informed they... More

I loved everything about Sankofa Beach House!! Masao, the owner, and his staff were fabulous! After several days of serving on a mission trip, Sankofa was a perfect place to end my journey. The rooms were all wonderful, the beach within feet, the foot was beyond spectacular, the environment as relaxing or active as I wanted it to be, and... More

This is a gem! A must see if you are trying to get away and relax. My only challenge was that, I only stayed for one night. We arrived around noon and the owner, Masou greeted us. We dropped our bags right there and the staff whisked them away to our room. We stayed in the main house, in the... More
