After a long tortuous way from Accra due to a mechanical problem, we finally reached the hidden place in Lake Bosumtwe. A warm welcome, and a delicious dinner make us relax and quickly forget the hard road. The guesthouse is located on the shores of the circular and peaceful lake, whose waters are only disturbed by the fishermen hand oars.... More

The Guesthouse was absolutely fantastic. Cocoa Village is very quiet and has a very welcoming atmosphere. The owner runs the property as if it were his own home, making everyone who stays feel very comfortable. The food was delicious and was a great portion for the price. I would recommend the mushroom pasta! It was a truly authentic Italian flavor.... More

We more than recommend this woderful place at Lake Bosomtwe. We stayed for two nights - one in the dorm and one in a gorgeous bungalow. You woun't find a lot of furniture in the dorm, but for backpackers it's jut enough. However in this beautiful landscape you will not stay in a room the whole day. They offer a... More

The guesthouse is down a rough winding road, but well worth the journey to the edge of Lake Bosumtwi. We arrived early in the evening, just after it got dark, after a long journey from the Northern Region. We arrived tired and hungry, but had a fantastic welcome from the owner. He showed us to our rooms and the staff... More

Having stayed as a group of 16 this hotel was very welcoming to us all, especially when we arrived at 11pm all rather tired. I stayed in a bungalow for four which was very comfortable, having lights, electricity and an ensuite. The food was excellent, and we even had fresh pasta made especially for us! It's location is very peaceful... More

We arrived v late but we're still given a very warm welcome and quickly settled into comfortable rooms. The lake was such a beautiful place to relax and the food was great. While there we swam in the lake (stunning) and walked up the hill behind the hotel for some amazing views. The thing that really stood out was how... More

Very nice set-up of rooms, restaurant and pebble beach area in fantastic location; including sun loungers, canoes for rent, etc. All small scale and quiet as not too many rooms and each having won front porch, with lake view. Owner (Slovenian) really wants to make the best of it and goes through efforts to make your stay perfect. Rooms have... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the small, cozy Bungalow and loved our stay! We did everything from swimming, hiking, horseback riding, lounging and relaxing. We are in our 70ties and outdoors lovers, this was what we were looking for in Ghana. The environs are beautiful and the air is clean, no Mosquitoes, not even at night! The... More

Remote destination, the 5 kilometer on poorer road worth. Beautiful, tranquil location on lake Botsomtwe. Very friendly owners, well-kept rooms and plumbing. True B & B atmosphere. Opportunities for activities on the lake and land. We only had 2 nights. We could therefore not fully enjoy this beautiful place and possibilities around. A must for everyone visiting the region of... More

We have stayed in most of the resorts up and down the Ghanian coast, for a change we went inland to lake Bosomtwi. Cocoa village is rustic and laid back and has the best service in Ghana. You know what I mean, order your food two hours before you need it. Not here, I ordered pancakes for the children for... More
