For 60 GHS, the food should at least be hot. The kebabs and other food was not kept warm. They have won a world record: worst pizza I've ever had. The "burgers" shouldn't be called burgers. The staff is inattentive. Worst part: they charge 70 GHS for a shot of Jack Daniels in the buffet and 35 in the bar.... More

Arrived at this hotel during the Christmas break as a drive in guest without booking, I was attracted into this hotel by the location, the reception and was pleasantly attracted by the receptionist I meet on duty who took us and show us a room. I made up my mind to stay here but promise to do so after we... More

Elmina Beach Resort is one of the 2 good hotels in Elmina but there is no real access to the beach there . The setting is good , though , and the reception area impressive . However in some of the rooms you need to check that everything is working ( a/c , hot water , power outlets ) .... More

I would agree with many of the reviews already posted. The hotel looks impressive at first glance but falls short once you really start to look around. Having a can of Raid left by the bed was not a comforting first impression of the rooms. The main reason I would not stay at this hotel again is that the rooms... More

Really, for $170 a night, we felt entirely ripped off. We had actually booked into the wrong hotel. We were meant to have booked ( on recommendations from friends) at the Elmina BAY Resort, not the Elmina BEACH. But hey ho, off we went. The building is really run down. The website says it was built in 1999 and refurbished... More

I have stayed here many times over the years and for the area it's one of the best places to stay. At best this is a three star hotel in a place only visited by the adventurous. If you have stayed in West Africa for any period of time you know things just don't work seamlessly. The rooms are musty,... More

The reception on the first night was poor. The ladies at the reception were cold except one gentleman called Alex who was helpful despite all the complaints brought to him. We had to wait for an hour to be checked into a room after travelling all the way from Accra for about three hours. Myself and a colleague had to... More

Stayed here for two weird nights. The property seems to be massive but it got too creepy to explore it much. They have a pool but you have to pay extra to use it. They have a lovely outdoor bar area and deck but there never seemed anyone to staff it. Rooms were ok but the can of Raid on... More

Again, by Ghanaian standards this might be an okay place (perhaps even good quality). By western standards, you will be totally appalled by the rooms, which are run down, sparse and smell of mildew, are barely air conditioned, and by the dilapidated furnishings. The dirty curtains barely provide any privacy and while the location on the beach is nice, the... More
