This is a nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were great, the best we experienced in Ghana - we were travelling around the country on a birding tour. The pool area and grounds are neat and tidy, but a bit too sterile. Ben was a gracious host and we had quick and perfect room service each day:... More

For anyone who is looking for a TOP spot in Ghana to spend your family holiday.....This is your place. Staff like James, Rose, Suma, Charles (poolman) and Ben have made us have a wonderfull stay. The fanstatic pool is partially shaded by palmtrees, which makes it good to swim with children. Rooms are large, the bed and A/C are good.... More

I have been to Elmina Bay 3 different time over the course of 3 years and each time the stay is different. The owners are nice, but they really need to update the dorm style rooms. The linen needs to be replaced as well. The dining area is nicely situated on the beach, but food options are really limited. It... More

Me and my parents stayed here in january last year for (apologies for the late review) and were amazed by the hospitality. Ben and Suzy have a beautiful place here right on the beach and only a short walk from the old colonial sites. However it was the care and attention we received which was most noteworthy. The staff worked... More

My family (kids 12 and 8 years old) stayed at this beautiful resort for 1 night on a weekend away from busy Accra. We were given a lovely family suite which separate beds for the kids in an adjoining room through an archway. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The view from the room out to sea was... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights between Christmas and New Year. Rooms are spacious and clean and whilst the Internet was intermittent it was a nice thing to have. The swimming pool area is lovely and all rooms face the sea/swimming pool which is a bonus. The staff had good intentions but werent the best at remembering the orders... More

Elmina Bay resort was a great experience, if you are interested in getting away from the noise and you desire a peaceful and serene holiday. Our room was clean, spacious and properly ventilated. A view of the ocean adds that extra oomph to it. Hotel staff were quite polite and efficient and always willing to help however they could. The... More

We had a good stay, enjoyed the meals and the natural scenery. Unfortunately, someone sneaked into our room and stole USD200 and GHS200. We only realised this when we were checking out. Suzy (owner) was made aware of this but she insisted nobody had access to the room and nothing was done about it. We spent two nights there and... More

We are disappointed with your experience at Elmina Bay. You stayed with us for 2 nights and were checking out when we overheard you discussing missing monies with your partner; your conversation was not directed at our staff. You completed check out, were waiting outside and returned to inform us that you had checked and were missing some money, US$200... More

Elmina Bay was indeed worth the distance and short stretch of unpaved road. Suzi was a pleasant host while Ben (her husband) was a delight. Breakfast was of a good size (and included in the hotel room rates) while there were more options if the guests wanted a bit more variety. The pancakes served at breakfast were awesome and cost...

Extremely welcoming hosts. Be sure to visit with Ben and Suzy, the owners. Very clean and spacious rooms on nice grounds. Good restaurant and absolutely wonderful staff. Only downside was problems with internet and a few other technical issues, which I imagine can be taken care of. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
