Made reservations based on Trip Advisor reviews after not being able to get reservations at places recommended by friends. Wondered a little why I could get a room there and not other places but that all disappeared when we walked in. It truly is a little oasis in the heart of Key West. While close to Duvall St it is...

...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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Don't waste your money here. The management will try to nickel and dime you wherever they can (no concept of customer service and good business practices). The hotel is dark and depressing, and more expensive than other guest houses in the area (try the coconut grove bridge house--20 cedi less and much nicer). It is far from the beach, and...

What attracted us to this guest house was that they were Jamaicans running a guest house in Ghana and this intrigued us to make a booking with them. What a warm, welcoming environment!!! You can not go wrong with this place - as soon as you walk into the place, you feel at ease!!! The guest house is around 15...

This 10-room guest house next door to the large, expensive but poor value Elmina Beach Resort is a labor of love of Sonia and Byron Lye-Fook, transplanted Jamaicans from the UK. The immaculate rooms are charmingly decorated in light and bright colors with African carved headboards, each room featuring twin beds (pushed together, with rather hard foam mattresses on wooden...

“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,.”
