Is am an experienced traveller in Africa and this was the worst place I have been to. We were only eating so can not comment on the rooms but the food ordered took over two hours to arrive (some of it never came) was not as ordered and poor quality with meals advertised as beef and chicken being identical meat....

Great service from the management. Comfy rooms, good food. A fabulous pool and lovely surroundings. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night! The owner was really attentive and helped us a lot during our stay and all the staff were friendly. The price was incredibly cheap by European standards. It is a little ways out of Elmina... More

Situated on the coast with views of the historic Elmina Castle, this is a great location for the hotel. The staff are all generally very with friendly and helpful and will make every attempt to meet your needs. However service is still below par for this level of establishment The rooms were very good and compare well to other resorts.... More

We two arrived midweek during the rainy season(June). Resort directions and signage are excellent; we arrived promptly although a bit battered by the rough road access. Property is maintained to a high standard. Room was very tidy with well built furniture. We were on the top level in a twin bed room. The balcony overlooked the pool, the restaurant and... More

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.

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
