The restaurant needs some renovation. Rooms and hall setup seem pretty ancient . Nice view of the sea for lunch and dinner.. Pretty much located in the center of town in Cape Coast and easily accessible. Service is also pretty much average...

Worst experience of my hotel life! We booked the hotel in the (Sunday) morning of our intended arrival. We got there to check in in the evening, but were greeted with very annoyed receptionists, who made us feel we had intruded and annoyed them with our presence! We were then told that they close the Internet on a Friday, so... More

We booked a hotel down the coast a bit and on arrival, took one look and walked out-it was disgusting. Therefore ANYTHING would have been better than it was. I thought the room was spacious, the aircon worked well, but the mattress and pillows were awful (glad we packed our own pillows). We needed lunch and were told it was... More

Was here 5 days. Honest and friendly staff. Food was OK. Got a room first. Changed to a room with ocean view. No problem. There was also a tennis area. Outdoor space was close to a not walkable beach. But the view and surroundings was good. Also a pool. How clean it was. I don't know. All in all. A... More

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
