We were delighted by this little bit of Paradise during our tour of Ghana. The rooms are modest but well equipped with air conditioning and hot water. There are even mini-bars if you want to succumb to this expense. The setting is absolutely gorgeous, right on the ocean and the grounds are well-kept with beautiful flowers and trees. Nice sized pool, very clean and lots of room around the pool for sun bathing or snoozing under an umbrella. There are also huts down by the beach that have big comfortable chairs and one with chaises. Or you can have your lounge taken down on the beach. As with all the places we stayed in Ghana, the service was great and very friendly. The most pleasant surprise was the restaurant that had a very broad menu and everything was good. Try the groundnut soup and the lobster mayonnaise - delicious. Even chips and beer by the pool had an exotic feel to it! We toured Cape Coast and Elmina in the mornings and lazed by the pool in the afternoons, topped off by a late dinner in one of the huts. If you let them know what time you will come for dinner, a special table will be prepared for you with white tablecloth and candles. All so terribly romantic! I just loved this place and would definitely return.

I have stayed at Coconut Grove on many occassions and have been disappointed each time. Why do I keep going back? Maybe because it has potential, and I am optimistic. The grounds are nice as is the view. Why don't I like it? The rooms are outdated and musty. You can't swim in the ocean due to rocks and a riptide that will kill you. The food once made my husband so sick, he wasn't right for several months. Don't get too excited about the golf course - each fairway is a long rectangle with no discernable green and goats as your primary hazard. Finally, it is extremely overpriced. I recommend Anomabo Beach Resort, which is about an hour closer to Accra and 20 minutes from Cape Coast. You can actually swim there, the food is very good, and the rooms are nice chalets at a reasonable price.

The Coconut Grove Beach Resort was one of the best places I stayed at while in Ghana. I have stayed in other hotels and resorts from Kumasi to Accra and none rate as high when it comes to customer service, beauty, relaxation, and comfort. Additionally, the food was great and the staff were incredible. I highly recommend this resort to anyone.

In July my family took a two week trip to Ghana. We stayed four nights at the Coconut Grove Beach Resort and had a wonderful time. We rented a family suite that was more like a two bedroom apartment. The room was great and the air conditioning was outstanding. The grounds were beautiful. It was right on the beach with lawns and coconut palms all around. The staff was very helpful and the food was great. The restaurant was open air right on the beach and you had a constant view of the fishing boats going by. It was really beautiful. The surf is quite rough so we did not swim in the ocean but the beach was fun to play at, lots of shells to look at. The pool was big and clean so to cool off we took a swim there. They had four computers for our teenagers to choose from to check the internet. They also had a laundry service which was very helpful after waiting four days for lost luggage. I would highly recommend this resort for anyone staying in the Cape Coast or Elmina area. The drive to Cape Coast was not bad at all. Very scenic as well. Also check out the Women in Progress workshops in Cape Coast while in the area. They were a highlight of our trip.
