We stayed at EBR. We had searched for prices on hotels.com. We told the recpetionist this and was given a discount. We arrived after a long day of travel, just wanted to go for dinner and go back to the room for sleep, but the room was horrible. It was not cleaned well, hot water did not work, the frontdoor...

I stayed there a couple of times, mostly on business and due to a perceived lack of alternatives. Well, we now have several, mostly because I really didn't want to stay there anymore at this abysmally low value. I can totally relate to the customer who had to change rooms because nothing worked: AC not working most of the time,...

Stayed at the Elmina Beach Resort for four days for meetings. I'm glad I had read the reviews in advance - at least the can of Raid on the bedside table wasn't a surprise. The first room provided featured a bathroom floor riddled with the corpses of giant dead ants. When I asked for that to be cleaned up the...

The resort is fairly run down but saying this the resort is fairly good by Ghana standards. The food is safe and the staff are pleasant..This hotel is in a reasonable beach front area and caters for expatriates... The overall standard needs to be taken in the context of the lack of good alternatives.

We stayed one night, outdated, old, the bed was really uncomfortable, sheets and bedding really old, cockroaches crawling on the desk- though they do provide you with bug spray. It was just one of those places you can't relax because your skin is crawling. The breakfast was terrible, not many options and not really fresh and country western music playing...

I cannot recommend Elmina Beach Resort. It appears to have been a grand place once upon a time and its location on the beach is ideal. Today however, there are too many inconsistencies and gaps in service and atmosphere here. Next time, I will surely try one of the other/newer area resorts in this class. I stayed just two nights...

I have always stayed in this hotel while travelling from Abidjan to Accra and found this place very good as compared to other hotels in this area. Love the beach. Yes hotel is old and needs some renovation.

I wanted to sit and watch the ocean and chose to come to Elmina Beach Resort, thinking I would get a table on their outside verandah! A farcical chronicle ensued. It was mid afternoon, and I had to ask for a table and chairs. After several minutes I had to look for a staff for menu. I ordered iced tea,...

A shame, this, because it must once have been a great property, right on a lovely palm-shaded beach with a beautiful view of Elmina Castle in the distance. The food was dreadful, nothing in the rooms worked (only one of the three lamps in my room, for example), and staff attitudes ranged from unconcerned to embarrassed. For what it offers,...

I've stayed here twice on someone else's suggestion and will now look for alternatives in the area. It may be one of the best-known hotels in the area, but it is poorly managed and poorly maintained. Price negotiations and billing are an ordeal. There is always something in the room that is broken, breaking or old (e.g. showers, airconditioners, TVs)....
