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

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
