Coconut Grove Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Elmina
Reviewed 20 July 2014

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 gym was closed as the equipment was broken.

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 rooms are clean, comfortable... but basic. I had a great time.

You are walking distance from the elemina castle, and the town itself is very friendly and worth a visit. NOTE: Watch for the guys asking you for your name. They are going to write it in marker on a shell or bracelet and ask 15 cedis. However, as most ghanians are kind, honest, and polite they will not try to hustle you if you say no. If you like it, a fair price is 5 cedis. A fair price for a taxi from the castle to the hotel is 3-4 cedis. Arrange that price in advance and don't get in the car until you have shaken on it. They will be honest.

The restaurant staff are a little funny sometimes. Most of the dishes on the menu are not available, but the staff will pretend to ask the chef for you. You can watch them they walk to the side and walk back to tell you the chef said no.

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.

Room Tip: The newly constructed villas are the best

I have stayed in this resort for three days during the rainy season (July). Rooms are clean and spacious. Restaurant by the beach offers a good selection and has a great view. Hotel employees are very friendly and helpful. The pool area is well-kept and clean. I don't know what one of the reviewers are talking about when they say there is no beach access! (I think they're talking about Elmina Bay Resort which is right next door) There is very easy access to a very long and clean beach here. My daughter and two dogs enjoyed our long walks on that beach. That brings us to the matter of pets... This is the ONLY pet-friendly hotel I have found in Ghana so far. The hotel even has its own dog named Pebble. I am thrilled to be able to take my dogs with me during a vacation. Of course, I kept them on a leash and made sure that they were restrained while we were in public areas and did not take them to the pool area. The resort offers horseback riding as well and my daughter enjoyed riding along the beach. I work in Accra and definitely intend to come back with my dogs many times. I recommend it to everyone who hates leaving their dogs home when they vacation. Just make sure to mention your intention to bring your dogs when making your reservation.

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!

Great location, right on the beach. Very helpful and friendly staff. We didn't like the first room offered us but it was no problem they offered a number of rooms and we found a lovely quiet room overlooking the sea. Not the most stylish of rooms but good nevertheless. The food was good and very enjoyable. The waiting staff were very helpful and gave recommendations about which local dishes to try. A very pleasant relaxing stay. We walked along the beautiful beach and watched the villagers hauling in the fishing nets, fascinating. One word of caution pay in local currency as the dollar/euro/sterling rates were very poor.

We spent three nights. After two nights in one of their new large rooms, particularly one night when the power went out and we were without air conditioning, we switched to one of the older, smaller rooms and liked it much more. The air in the smaller room dented the intense humidity much better and the ceiling fan (which the newer room did not have) also helped a lot. We actually got cool that night which was wonderful as the intense heat and humidity were very uncomfortable to us. If I were to go again, I would insist on one of the smaller rooms with both an air conditioner and a ceiling fan. The meals were decent, but it took an hour or an hour and a half for them to prepare them. Go with a book or good company to talk to while you wait. The pool is nice and the beach is nice for swimming in the ocean.

It does not look like there are a lot of other good options in the area. This place is many steps above the other local accommodations.
