We visited with my mother in law on her first trip to Ghana and while the staff are lovely, our room was 'tired', in need of updating, it was, however, clean and had everything we needed. The setting is beautiful and the grounds kept very well. BUT, both nights we waited over 1.5 hours for our meals to arrive and... More

I've stayed at the Coconut Grove Beach Resort in Elmina three times over the past year and a half (most recently a couple of months ago) and my experiences have been remarkably consistent. The staff is helpful, the rooms are clean, the grounds are lovely, and the food is good. However, each time the air conditioning in my room was... More

A film crew can be very demanding group of people, but during our stay at Coconut Grove Beach Resort, we have never been met with a reply 'not possible'. The whole staff and managers have been going out of their way to make our many demands possible. Friendly staff, wonderful view over the wild coast line, comfortable rooms, a nice... More

I really enjoyed my weekend at Coconut Grove. The beach is beautiful and very well maintained. We spent an entire day there and night. We left the next day to a couple of sight seeing places near by. we dined that night at Captain's Hook, we ordered the fish platter. Check below for details. If in Accra, a trip to... More

I feel really mixed about the Coconut Grove hotel. My room - all the way at the back - was super basic and not at all like the rooms towards the front of the complex. The food was good; although choices at breakfast were limited, the fresh omelettes were delicious. I wasn't able to use all the amenities - the... More

We stayed 3 nights here and it was quite positive. The beach is beautiful, and the restaurant is in a great location to look the water. The grounds are impeccable and very pleasant. The rooms are clean, comfortable... but basic. I had a great time. You are walking distance from the elemina castle, and the town itself is very friendly... More

The resort is a very relaxing place where you can sit by the beach and enjoy some peace and quiet. The new villas are quite lovely and are ideal for a family.The golf course requires a lot of maintenance and management though.

I have stayed in this resort for three days during the rainy season (July). Rooms are clean and spacious. Restaurant by the beach offers a good selection and has a great view. Hotel employees are very friendly and helpful. The pool area is well-kept and clean. I don't know what one of the reviewers are talking about when they say... More

We ended up here after a month long trip through West Africa. The grounds are very peaceful and clean. There are some lovely rooms and the property is right on the beach. The staff is also very friendly and I would love to return with my husband and have a romantic stay there. I plan on returning eventually. Cheers!

Great location, right on the beach. Very helpful and friendly staff. We didn't like the first room offered us but it was no problem they offered a number of rooms and we found a lovely quiet room overlooking the sea. Not the most stylish of rooms but good nevertheless. The food was good and very enjoyable. The waiting staff were... More
