I stayed here with several friends in October 2012. The hotel rooms seem to be new construction, and are quite clean, roomy, and well built. The rooms were quiet and right on the beach- great ocean views and sounds of waves all night. There is a large pool which is good for swimming, and a beach which is good for... More

This place is pretty out of the way and after the pot holed and dusty road one wondered what was at the end. But the rooms were extremely spacious with free wifi! The pool was great and the ocean views superb. The restaurant served some pretty basic Ghanaian food but it was tasty, although the service could have been quicker.... More

Went here in Jan 2010 for our honeymoon. Can't believe I'm only just writing my review. It was fab. nice room, very clean, right on the beach, the owner who attended to us then was just brilliant. It's a must go. nice peaceful surrounds. I think they need to update/invest in their website though. cant believe it still hasn't changed... More

We spent a delightful five nights at Elmina Bay Resort on our way along the Ghanaian coast. The rooms were very comfortably appointed and kept scrupulously clean, any small issues with plumbing etc were quickly and effectively dealt with. The grounds are also very well kept and will only become more attractive as the carefully chosen and tended planting matures... More

This hotel could really be beautiful and for the price I paid I have to say I was a little disappointed. The rooms were lovely and clean. However my 'hot water' was never hot, I think I was lucky if it was luke warm. I would expect hot water for the price paid. The pool area was lovely and well... More

I would rank this place higher if it were not for the terrible service at the restaurant. My girlfriend and I were there for two nights and the room was fine, we enjoyed the view, the swimming pool and beach. But the quality of the service and of the food was really low. The waiters obviously had never been trained... More

My husband and I stayed here overnight while visiting Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle. The rooms and pool are comfortable and clean by U.S. and European standards. The place seems to be battling beach erosion, and the sea wall at the edge of the property is a little too high to allow actual beach access safely, but the views... More

My husband and I spent six months in Ghana for his work and made several trips to Cape Coast. We stayed here one weekend with a friend who came to visit us from the US. This place was pleasantly surprising after a couple previous trips to the area. The room was very large, clean, and new, and it opened to... More

My wife and our toddler spent a weekend here. Spacious, clean rooms opening out to a balcony that offered a lovely view of the ocean. Our hosts, Ben and Suzie were friendly and welcoming, alerting me ahead of our trip to the fact that we needed to take an alternative route (the Elmina Bridge was closed) and arranging a taxi...

I was staying next door at Stumble Inn on a school trip, we decided to go for lunch here- worst mistake! The service was awful, the food that turned up was disgusting, some food didn't turn up, it took 2hrs from when we ordered and they almost refused to refund us for the food that turned up. One example is... More

abruder, Owner at Elmina Bay Resort, responded to this review

So sorry we were not able to give you a more satisfactory service. 25 students arriving unannounced on a quiet day, and ordering a la carte meals for simultaneous delivery, represented a challenge for the small staff team who were on duty. They tried to do their best, but they should have offered a more realistic delivery time, and advised... More
