We've heard good comments from friends long time ago so we decided to try this place for easter and had a bad experience. They have invested a lot in making it look nice but it was very dirty, the bungalow was very dusty everywhere even in the most visible places....so you can imagine how the corners and under beds were....

Fanta's Folly will definitely remain one of the few places at the coast where will will keep going back. As an expat family coming from Kenya, we didn't expect much but Fanta has been a real surprise: nice & simple piloti wooden beach bungalows, a beautiful beach, wonderful slow food prepared with French know how, a nice sea turtle project,...

This is a very nice resort on a beautiful stretch of Butre Beach. I spent 9 nights here with my partner hoping for a relaxing holiday. In the past, I've stayed or eaten at several nearby resorts, including The Hideout, Green Turtle, Ezile Bay, Safari Beach Lodge, Busua Inn, Busua Beach Resort, Axim Beach Resort, Coconut Grove, etc. Fanta's Folly...

Fantas Folly is a small rather budget resort on a very quiet and secluded part of the beach. It is ideal for relaxing for a couple of days on the beautiful beach The huts are nice, but little run-down. The food in the restaurant is excellent, I could say the best we had on our visit to Ghana. The best... More

This was my third visit in 5 years and each one has been a pleasure from the food to the service and accommodation. On my most recent visit I was so happy to find it as i remembered from 2 years ago. The buildings are nicely designed and very well maintained. The food is as good as ever and the... More

The rooms are in solidly built wooden structures on stilts right next to a wonderful beach. They're beautifully decorated and have a terrace where you can read your book while listening to waves crashing on a golden beach lined with coconut trees. The owners Fanta and Philippe and their staff are wonderful hosts who still behave like human beings instead... More

Nice location..... thats about it. The rooms were SO DAMP. SO damp. All out stuff was ruined after two nights there. You can't swim in the sea, and theres nothing to do.... even a ball would have been great! The food was poor, tiny portions and no flexibility. If you stay here, go to hideout lodge to eat and get...
