Don't be deterred by 5 km of pretty bad road from Abono, for this place is a real gem. It's beautifully located by the lake, one of the very few places in Ghana where one can safely and seriously swim. Mattheus and Tjasha are perfect hosts and great fun, very knowledgeable about the country at large and the area, with... More

The place is really one of the nicest places I've seen in Ghana so far. You can see there has been put a lot of love and care in every detail and Matthias and Kiasha really make you feel so welcome and go out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible. The location is a bit difficult... More

Beautiful but somewhat remote location yet more than worth the effort of getting there. Yes it has basic accommodations but very clean And comfortable with gracious hosts. Meals quite good n i love that they serve local food sometimes with a twist. Go if u want a memorable and different one of a kind experience ... peaceful n spiritual too

Had a great stay at Cocoa village and would highly recommend this place for anyone travelling in the area. Beautiful, warm lake where you can swim and use paddle boats. Very peaceful surroundings and the owners were very pleasant and accommodating. I have been to Ghana 7 times now and would definitely make another trip to Cocoa village in the... More

I've been living in Kumasi for a few months and wish I'd discovered this place sooner. The owners are wonderfully warm, friendly and make you feel really at home. The manager is lovely and the food is excellent. You can swim, go canoeing, hike around the lake or pop along for some horse riding. If you live in Kumasi or... More

Staying at Cocoa village in December 2013/January 2014 was one of the best times of our trip in Ghana. The owners are hospitable and always ready to listen to your wishes about anything. The food is tasty and the portions are almost big enough for two, the prices are reasonable. A few nights we slept in a bungalow, which is... More

This place is about 2 miles further down a rutted track than you think it can possibly be and badly signposted, but push on past Rainbow Village and you'll find it. We arrived lateish to find that the power was out. We were fed a delicious supper though and apart from my partner's bizarre midnight mosquito paranoid panic ("THEY'RE INSIDE... More

Excellent food and nice accommodation. Stayed in bungalow one which was an en-suite double room. Weather was great. Food at the bar was lovely and reasonably priced. Didn't swim in the Lake but apparently doesn't contain Bilharzia but we didn't take the risk. Getting to Cocoa village requires getting to the Lake then going down a very bad pawed road... More

We stayed at this guesthouse with a group of twenty over a weekend in August; which meant some moving around with mattresses for the very friendly owners, but in the end everybody had a place to sleep. First of all: this place is beautifully located on the lake and the whole set-up looks simply stunning, but beware: the road to... More

Thank you very much for review. The road is not the best on the world but every year we are working on it (it is hard to resist to the nature, rainy season take her tax) . We are planning to extend our facility for a few new bungalow in the future and we already set-up the security guard. Thanks... More
