...but then, we had a hard time finding good value for money in Ghana -- not sure why.

The owners (transplanted Jamaicans) are friendly, and the hallways are decorated with fascinating artifacts and articles about the African diaspora. But the room was unimpressive and dimly lit, no hot water or TV reception, the breakfast uninspired, the location disappointing (far from town and barely within view of the beach) and the service so-so. When we asked for blankets we were told, "What do you need blankets for? Just turn off the air conditioning if you're cold." (Fair enough, but whatever happened to "the customer is always right"?) As for the supposedly famous Caribbean cuisine: the restaurant was not serving at 7 p.m. and the desk clerk sent us stumbling along the dark highway to what was basically a rest stop at a petrol station with surly service and only fried rice on the menu (a surreal experience).

I wish I could like the place better, because the owners are nice and the concept is interesting, but it badly needs a makeover and better trained staff.

Coming to Ghana for the 1st time was an experience in itself but the creature comforts made us feel like we were at home. Myself and my family visited this guest house for 5 days as we did not want to stay with family (my husband is Ghanaian and I am Jamaican) last month. This guest house is inviting and has a very homely feel to it, all the staff were very welcoming, helpful and extremely attentive - nothing ever seemed too much for them (even when my husband asked the receptionist where the nearest place to get telephone credits was, one of the staff offered to get this for him and did so - I was astonished when he told me but this is so typical of Ghanaians - they always want to help!). The guest house was clean at all times, food delicious (and a choice of Jamaican food - what more can I ask!) and very reasonably priced! So, yes, I definitely would recommend this place to anyone - the manageress and proprietors were also very friendly and accommodating, l can't wait to return! See you soon Ghana!

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms with A/C upstairs - VERY spacious!

What attracted us to this place with the menu of Caribbean and African cuisine. We had planned to stay for just a few nights but ended up there for almost a week.

Such a pleasure to be there, the staff were great and the management made us feel like this was home.

It was such a lucky find and the highlight of our trip to Ghana.

I found the pricing very reasonable and the location was great.

Cant wait to go back.

We expected Almond Tree to have a garden at sea, but you cannot reach the sea. We were in the Nanny room and the room was cosy and clean. The room is near the hall and you can here the staff all the time talking and laughing. Wich is 6 o'clock in the morning a bit disturbing. . But still i recommend this hotel. Breakfast is good with always a plate of fresh fruit. Also our vegatarian dinner was good.
The staff is friendly, always asked if the food was enough and good. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel.The bathroom neat and clean. The Nanny room is not overpriced.

There was an air of tumbleweed about the hotel but perhaps that is slightly unfair as we were the only guests. We had not realised before booking that the hotel is really out of town and although you can see the sea from the hotel, there is a stretch of scrubland in between the hotel and the sea. Some of the staff were helpful others not particularly so - almost rude. The information in the room says you can order dinner up to 6.30pm and on one day we asked the reception desk at about 5pm whether we could order dinner and if so when we should order by. The answer was that dinner could be whenever we wanted it to be. When we returned to reception at 6.01pm we were told it was too late!! There is, however, an excellent place to eat called Eli's Spot just opposite. The rooms are very overpriced and note that if you pay for a room with a seaview the balcony has security bars across like you are in prison - the garden view rooms are nicer but most of the rooms are quite dark. If you have to stay in Elmina this hotel is probably not a terrible choice as it is out of the centre which can be a bit intimidating particularly around the castle, but by choice there are much nicer places to stay in nearby Cape Coast.

Room Tip: the bob marley room looked the nicest but is also the most expensive. The sea view rooms have security bars on so the garden view rooms are probably nicer,.
