We visited with my mother in law on her first trip to Ghana and while the staff are lovely, our room was 'tired', in need of updating, it was, however, clean and had everything we needed. The setting is beautiful and the grounds kept very well. BUT, both nights we waited over 1.5 hours for our meals to arrive and... More

I've stayed at the Coconut Grove Beach Resort in Elmina three times over the past year and a half (most recently a couple of months ago) and my experiences have been remarkably consistent.

A film crew can be very demanding group of people, but during our stay at Coconut Grove Beach Resort, we have never been met with a reply 'not possible'.

I feel really mixed about the Coconut Grove hotel. My room - all the way at the back - was super basic and not at all like the rooms towards the front of the complex. The food was good; although choices at breakfast were limited, the fresh omelettes were delicious. I wasn't able to use all the amenities - the... More

We stayed 3 nights here and it was quite positive. The beach is beautiful, and the restaurant is in a great location to look the water. The grounds are impeccable and very pleasant.

The resort is a very relaxing place where you can sit by the beach and enjoy some peace and quiet. The new villas are quite lovely and are ideal for a family.The golf course requires a lot of maintenance and management though.

We ended up here after a month long trip through West Africa. The grounds are very peaceful and clean. There are some lovely rooms and the property is right on the beach. The staff is also very friendly and I would love to return with my husband and have a romantic stay there. I plan on returning eventually. Cheers!
