My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid-September. Ben and Sue were great hosts. They ate at the restaurant around the same time we did each night, and each made a point of coming to our table to chat. The rooms were clean and of good quality. Yes, like a previous reviewer observed, there are no toilettries....

This place is so close to being really nice, yet I thought it fell short on a number of points. First, the grounds and the room appeared half-finished. There was some landscaping and some grass, but it had all been overrun with sand. Maybe that's impossible to avoid, but it could look less haphazard. The room itself was certainly clean...

Elmina Bay Resort's peaceful, stunning location makes it such a great place to really get away from it all. All the rooms are exceptionally clean, well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Every room has a large, private balcony overlooking the pool and the Atlantic ocean just a few metres away - ideal if you just want time to sit, read, reflect....

The rooms are very cozy and spacious, workers and owners very personable. The whole experience on both visits to Elmina Bay Resort were excellent! The extra-large swiming pool and nice restaurant (excellent food, by the way) practically next door to the Atlantic Ocean were my favourites. Next time we will spend some time at the planned bowling place. You may...

The previous 10 or so reviews are accurate. The rooms are right on the oceans. They are spotless, well air conditioned when needed, and with nice towels. The restaurant is open-air. The menu was pretty extensive considering the remote location. The location is wonderful. I do disagree with a previous poster about the beach. At high tide, there is none;...

The location is great. Away from the city enough to relax. Room was great, large and clean with a great view. Beach was great, clean and beautiful. Pool was great, clean and large. Food was mediocre, it wasn't terrible, but definitely something they could work on, slow, and bland, but not terrible. The price/value by American standards were great. This...

Our stay at the Elmina Bay Resort more than lived up to expectations. Good-sized, light and clean rooms, each with their own balcony, are only meters from the beach. The open bar/ restaurant overlooking the sea serves good food (the lunch menu is limited at lunch but good in the evening), and whilst there is a wait of about 40...

At first I wanted to return when I saw the small signage directing us to the resort. I wondered can anything good come out from such a small signage. The feeling got worse when I got to the untarred road. Then my wife and kids said let us at least see what they have. We just cannot express in words...

We went as a large family group aged from 8 to 88. We were extremely pleased with our rooms, facilities and bathrooms were of a good standard, tv and air con worked very well. A bit scarey was the notice in the rooms that sometimes they have electricity problems and they use a generator (you'd expect that a hotel has...

Thank you for taking time to give us so much feedback, we appreciate it, and will think hard about the comments you have made. We'll also consider how we might communicate our intentions about generator use more simply, and wrestle with the challenge of making breakfast more interesting without increasing the cost to our guests.
