I saw a few problems and wanted to talk to the managers, but where are they? in the meeting? any way here are the problems: 1. the rule at the pool needs to be changed using swim wear, instead of full clothes, I saw the whole family jumped in the pool swimming with full clothes, the guard kind of talking...

The location of this hotel is absolutely fantastic - right on a well kept clean beach down in Elmina, close to Cape Coast. This is not a 5star European Resort and is better for it. Located in sprawling grounds right on the Atlantic Coast. We had a family Villa right on the beach with our own private balcony. The Villa... More

We were traveling by car and hadn't made arrangements for a place to stay, and it was getting dark. Our teenage daughter noticed the sign to Coconut Grove so we turned down the sandy road. As we got closer the glow from the lights was a welcome sight. We received a warm welcome and really enjoyed the place. So much... More

We arrived at the resort in the evening for a check in after a long day of tourist activities. We were sadly informed that the pool closed at 8 pm so we only had 30 minutes to swim. The two bedroom suite had a joined bathroom with no AC, just an FYI. The rooms were small and the tv had... More

We had this hotel recommended to us by the company that organised a birdwatching tour for us. The room we had backed onto the Golf Course, was opposite the pool and the balcony had a view down to the pool and the beach. The room was excellently furnished really comfortable with everything apart from the phone in perfect working order... More

We didn't stay in the hotel but only came here twice for dinner by the sea. The sea view and breeze were fantastic! Unfortunately the waves were very strong, therefore I did not dare going for a swim.

On visiting the resort we checked in , our friends had booked us an Exec room ... Feeling excited we went to our room. What a bitter disappointment it was , the facilities were very bad and the decor was even worse. Badly marks walls , no shower curtain, only a fridge that freezes up , and so on !!!... More

I stayed here for a night with my family and absolutely loved it. There is a very nice, calming ambiance which comes from the beach, the greenery and the layout. Having the chalets spaced out definitely makes for an intimate and relaxed stay. It was clean and the showers nice. Staff were polite and the food tasted good, not taking... More

Coconut Grove Beach Resort is located in a beautiful coconut grove, on extensive grounds, by the ocean. The pool is large and well maintained. There is an open air bar and restaurant. This hotel is very close to the Elmina Slave Castle, an important historic landmark in Ghana. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. There is also a golf course... More

our overnight in Elmina, great view of the ocean from bar & restaurant, decent price and lovely if spartan rooms. Nice grounds. What needs improvement: WiFi in room as well as lobby (worked a little in bar, very frustrating), phones in rooms not working, restaurant did not have menu items in stock and ran out of things at breakfast.
