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

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
