The location is really paradisiac, but it has a price: really long to come through a really difficult non paved road. Rooms are ok, it's rustic but it's not expensive and it's clean. The restaurant is acceptable, you have to order 2 or 3 hours before to be served in time...like all beach restaurants in Ghana. The prices are acceptable... More

After a long journey from Accra we were ready to relax and enjoy a stay on the beach..... oh dear. Someone had decided to cancel our confirmed booking without any form of notification, a little distressing, but what followed was frankly shocking and unprofessional. The owner was extremely unhelpful - no offer to help find alternative accommodation and no apologies... More

Fanta's was probably a great place to stay. But things have changed. We travelled 5 hours by car with kids and we were sent away in the most impolite and rude way by the owner last week. Our reservation confirmed by multiple mails several days before was considered as non valid and cancelled without a single warning mail or phone... More

A great place to stay, fantastic food and amazing beach. The stilted huts are a stones throw from the beach, although basic they are actually really comfortable. Philippe and Fanta are both great hosts and made everyone in my group very welcome.

The location of Fanta's Folly is fantastic. Philippe and Fanta are very welcoming and the accommodation wooden cabins on stilts had the most amazing view of the atlantic ocean. Whilst we were there turtles came up onto the beach to lay their eggs. Its a gorgeous location with lovely food. The accommodation is basic but perfectly fine for Ghana. You... More

Fanta's is, without doubt, consistently the best beach resort in the Western Region. We've been visiting for three years, often with visiting friends and relatives in tow, and it never disappoints. Fanta and Philippe are great hosts who've designed the bungalows with real flair and creativity. The food is excellent - French and African-influenced dishes including delicious fish carpaccio, spicy... More

The resort is in a superb location and has good facilities. The beach is impressive but beware the high waves and strong currents - definitely not a place to swim. The first problem was that the drive from the main road was along a dirt road and took 40 minutes. The food was expensive and of poor quality as the... More

A lovely place for a quiet weekend. Fanta's is just a half hour or so from Takoradi, but feels a world away. The stilt rooms (we stayed in the end one) are tastefully designed and have a great view and natural AC from the sea breeze. The sound of the ocean crashing outside is lovely - though if you're a...

Advantages: Room is well decorated; the sandy beach is superb; the food is very good; the owner and his wife are friendly Inconvenients: Room was given without any single towel despite having asked repeatedly for it; lights in the hotel are not enough in numbers specially near the restaurant, and not bright enough in the room; too many waves and...
