We stayed here in April to visit Elmina, The staff were great. The room was clean and spacious and the view was amazing - really couldn't have been better (sorry - can't remember the room number, but it was at the top, overlooking the castle and the bridge). It was great just watching life in Elmina, although it was so... More

We stopped here for a nice long cold drink after our tour of the castle. Although we were right in the melee of the crowd ,it was a relaxing spot.It is a nice place to catch your breath and count your blessings. The castle was right in front of you and the lagoon was full of fishermen with their boats... More

Solo trip to see Elmina and the castle while in Ghana for work, I spent the night at the welcoming, comfortable Coconut Grove Bridge House. This historic stone structure (recently renovated) from the 1800s sits at the end of the bridge over the river outlet to the sea. It is the *perfect* spot to watch fishing boats go out and... More

We stayed there for 50 euros a night. It is on a remarkable spot. You are in the middle of the busy village life. Just opposite the slave castle and with a view on the fishing harbour. You can use the facilities of the Coconut Grove Beach Resort with his nice swimming pool. Just a few minutes with the taxi.

Stopped for a bite of lunch in this historic town. We were in a perfect spot to observe and enjoy the local culture as we had our lunch. The staff were friendly.

I really loved this hotel though I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea! It's right in the centre of Elmina which is noisy, somewhat smelly but full of character! I loved the place! The views from the hotel are great. You can watch the fishermen, the local people selling their wares and generally the hustle and bustle of the... More

This hotel is right down by the harbour, which brings with it lots of smells and noise of course, but also gives it loads of character and atmosphere. We were greeted by Stephen, the manager, who could not have been more helpful and friendly. My friends had problems with their room, and though they never quite managed to resolve the... More

From our windows and the outdoor sitting area, we were able to get great photos. We stayed on the third floor in Rooms 9 and changed to Room 10 when it became available. The rooms... More
