Great hospitality and, which is worth... More

This place is an awesome location with overwhelming nature. I can highly recommend this place, not only because of the nature. The staff is very helpful and both manager are very friendly. You can talk and also drink your beer with them. They make this place adorable!

Incredible place, perfect views, clean lovely huts, amazing food, friendly couple running it could not do more for you -the art work is impressive. I will definitely go back and it's a... More

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

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
