My friend and I had a wonderful stay at this relaxing location with breathtaking views. The second-floor room had a spacious balcony overlooking the ocean, and the faint sound of the waves put me to sleep each night. The food was great, and we really appreciated the close vicinity to the castles and Kakum. The rooms were relaxing, spacious and... More

This was our favourite hotel in Ghana - near to the towns of Elmina and Cape Coast, but very quiet and secluded. The local food was well-prepared (especially the fish), and there was a decent wine list with reasonable prices. All the staff were friendly and helpful, but the proprieter/manager was exceptional. He anticipated our every need, and was hospitable... More

We were here with another couple and had a very quiet stay. The rooms were air conditioned and clean, though room service did not come to clean rooms until the evening. The beach is very small and you will likely choose to find another beach nearby. The restaurant food was good though it was very slow to be served.

Me and my family stayed at Elmina Bay Resort for a couple of nights and though the place have some faults (as most places in Ghana do no matter the price tag) we had a very pleasant stay, with amazing service! We had not thought through that the resort is rather remote and as my sister in a worst case... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Elmina Bay. It was nice to leave the city to relax and listen to the ocean waves, the resort is right on the ocean. Ben, the proprietor and the staff were very helpful, warm and friendly. Loved the fried red snapper. The Ghanian dishes are very good. Great French Fries (Chips) also. Great pool... More

If you want peace and quiet and courteous staff, then this is the place. The rooms are nice and clean and the service is good. it has a nice pool facing the beach, although due to sand mining the beach sand is reduced. Its not too busy (which worked for me and my wife), and its easy enough to find... More

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
