Nice resort with a bar & restaurant right on the beach. The food is delicious. Great red wine as well. You can literally eat & watch the waves crash. Rooms are a decent size & the beds are comfortable. Wi-fi can be a bit spotty. I believe this property also features family housing so it's definitely child friendly. It's also...

Finally a hotel in West Africa that came up almost to Western standards. The wifi was patchy, but ok. The food was not bad and at least had no hair in it. The pool seemed clean for a change. Some activities appeared to be offered, but whether they were actually in existence is a moot point.

Have been to Coconut Grove for business conferences as also family outings. The place is well laid out over a vast area with cottages as well as standard rooms. The quality of the beach is disappointing with it being rocky in most parts. The rooms are decent and functional though for a business conference the internet connectivity can be a...

It was a very beautiful and convenient place to stay while visiting the slave castles. Our room was very nice. It had a sitting area, bathroom, bedroom and a small kitchen area..very spacious. When we opened the front door we could sit on the porch and be very close to the ocean. I was right on the beach...closest I have...

There's a lot to be said for the Coconut Grove resort. It's a few feet from the beach, there are two pools and even horse riding for children. I went with three friends for a beach side lunch. We ordered the Brain Teaser ( fanti kenkey and fried fish) and some drinks. Our waitress was pleasant but slow. Super slow....

I thought this hotel was quite average. The beds were quite low in height, it was hot, the fan didn't make a difference and just a very small table in the bathroom, that there was no place to put your clothes, the table was only large enough for towels. The two little pieces of soap were inadequate, so bring your...

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Elmina Castle and Cape Coast Castle, and Kakum Park. The atmosphere was friendly and accommodating, and the reception and check-out went smoothly.

This is a review of the restaurant only. We sat under one of the little thatched areas right next to the beach and had a delicious meal of "red red" (Ghanaian red bean stew) with fried plantains.
