The beach was almost gone from this beach-front hotel which was relatively empty when we stayed here. It was hard to find, and there was virtually no sand left on the beach due to an eroding coast line. We had planned to stay 2 nights but left after one as there was little do, and the deserted restaurant was still... More

I had an excellent stay at Elmina Bay Resort. A snafu left me as the only guest on the property--some construction work was to be done the day I was to check out. In that situation, they could have easily taken me for granted as a guest. Instead, the staff was incredibly attentive and friendly, my room was large, spotless,... More

We stayed at Elmina Bay Resort for a week and really enjoyed our stay. Location - it was quite difficult for us to find and we needed help from a local to find the hotel, perhaps more signs could help, however when we got there and it was absolutely beautiful. The room we had was very very nice HUGE bed,... More

Our room was large, bright and comfortable and also had a great view. The staff were friendly and grounds were well kept. We had some nice dishes at the restaurant and others which were average as was breakfast. Given the price we paid, the hotel could do better in terms of having enough towels in the rooms, supplying drinking water,... More

This was my first time in an African hotel. Although the hotel bills itself as four- star and indeed there are many features that are excellent. For example the swimming pool and location. There was certainly other features that were not four star. We had to pre-order our dinner one hour previous to when required to eat it as otherwise... More

Location- rather remote but stunning seaside location- but beware strong ocean undertow. Chalets positioned in a semi circle around the fantastic and very clean pool- excellent for lane swimming It was such a shame that the hotel did not have more guests, but the fear of Ebola had a very damaging affect on the season. Sad because this hotel could... More

The rooms are simple, but spacious and well-appointed, with AC and hot water. For a hotel that has been open for a few years, almost everything in the room worked, which is pretty good by Ghanaian standards. The restaurant is okay, but the food was a bit disappointing for a place that is otherwise great. Stumble Inn is next door... More

After spending some hectic days in Accra, getting to this resort was like landing in paradise. As I arrived the hotel manager updated me to a bigger room (for free) due to the low season; the food was excellent at decent prizes; the pool was big enough for an adult to swim in + is clean; and the staff was...

This was a pleasant stay for us here after our visit to Kakum National Park. We had a very nice walk on the beach and took beautiful sunset pictures with the bay. The room was comfortable, simple, and clean. Great view of the pool and the ocean from the big balcony as well. We enjoyed our dinner with fresh seafood... More

We loved this place. Sure we did Kakum Forest (nice) and we thoroughly enjoyed neighboring Elmina's bustling centre and were impressed by the Castle, but most of all we enjoyed sitting at the great pool in the resort, walking along the beach and dining in the open air restaurant with the waves almost breaking under your table. Everything in Ghana... More
