PROS: The grounds are very big/spacious and well kept; the service was exceptional by any standard; the chalet had nice (all functioning) amenities including a refrigerator; drinking water was available gratis; the place is all around peaceful and relaxing. Last but not least the food was absolutely delicious. CONS: The location is a bit remote (maybe you want this) so...

We love the little house just 5 steps from the beach--no A/C, but a strong breeze and listening to the waves all night is like nothing else. OR we will just drive out for a great meal. We have never been disappointed at the amazing meals that the team puts together--fish and seafood platters, tagines, omelettes....everything is delicious. Very high...

There are beach houses and then there is Sankofa Beach House! This is the best kept secret of Ghana. The service is immaculate, the facilities are excellent and the beach is pristine. Go for the service and enjoy everything else that Sankofa Beach has to offer!

We visited Sankofa for one night with 9 people and rented out the entire house. The owner put down three extra mattresses on the floor for us, but the bigger rooms could have easily fit three people in the bed. This place is literally the perfect weekend getaway from pristine beach to some of the most amazing food I've had...

We visited this place as a group of 9 people and really enjoyed the atmosphere. We stayed in the main house in 3 rooms with extra mattresses and were very comfortable. Neat and clean and secluded yet very "homey". An easy drive from Accra. Particularly noteworthy was the food. Delicious sea-food and breakfast was a feast! Hands down the best...

Super weekend retreat from Accra, we visited as a family including three children, staying in the main house for two nights. Sankofa is nicely laid out with lots of space in the middle for the children to run around, plus mini football goals, volleyball nets, hammocks and swings. The children really enjoyed the freedom to play. The beach was clean,...

I spent one night with a couple of friends at the Sankofa Beach Resort. Perfect getaway for a short peaceful break away from the city.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sankofa Beach House is a special place dedicated to bringing together people with big ideas who are committed to having a great time. The Beach House exudes an atmosphere that nurtures and cultivates opportunities to think deeply about one's life experiences, while discovering different ways to enjoy life alone or in a group. Sankofa Beach House is a "boutique guest house" with seven rooms all totally different from each other. We have no "standard" room. The rooms are designed in a way that attracts different personalities to each of the rooms. In addition to rooms the Beach House is a destination for "Day Visitors" who come for the serenity, lazing in the sun, ocean swimming, beach walks and our custom lunch service. The Beach House is also a great venue for a wide variety of events. The Beach House is located on the outskirts of Accra.The quiet clean beach area is in Langma Village near "Kokrobite" Village and sits on almost four acres of beach front property with a large grass open space. ... more   less

“House on the beach is our first choice; if you want A/C and a house close-ish to beach, ask for the house just behind the beachfront house.”

“I think choosing a good room at Sankofa depends on what you like. If you want to be a stone's throw from the seaside, the beachfront chalet is a winner. The roomy porch can't be beat for spending the day lazing about. BUT, people from the village will stop to talk to you, sell you things or occasionally (the children) ask for money or food. You have to be comfortable with telling them you are relaxing and don't want to be bothered. Other rooms afford more privacy, and since Sankofa is up high, you can still catch a view of the beach.”
