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

When we came to Sankofa beach house, we stayed in basic ocean front bungalow , without even AC for a price 110 $ . Our sheets have not been changed in 3 days. We stayed for one night, went out, returned back 2 days later and slept on the same dirty sheets. On a porch of our bungalow we did`t... More

One of the things you learn quickly about this business is that you can not please everyone. Obviously, this guest is one of those that no amount of effort can please. As a consequence, her review sits at the bottom, essentially by itself, which speaks volumes in it's solitude. I have numerous responses to the review. First, she misquotes the... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sankofa Beach House. It took us a little over an hour to get there from Accra, but it was well worth the wait. As soon as we arrived, we were treated to wonderful massages from Mercy. During our stay, the staff prepared a customized breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us and each meal... More

I had a great stay at Sankofa beach house. I was a solo traveller looking for some tranquility, great scenery and excellent food. Fortunately, Sankofa Beach house really didn't disappoint. Initially, I was startled to find that the property is in the midst of a village that is fairly poor. It's not total disparity all around, but the entire area... More

Sankofa is a great spot to get away from the hustle and bussle of the city for a few days. Be aware that this is a rustic retreat and not a five star resort and is rated against that backdrop. Service is second to none and is clearly influenced by the american service standards being instilled in the staff by... More
