I have been to elmina more than 10 times but this has been the most fantastic stay so far. The hotel location is amazing. From our window we could watch the boats come and go and from the terrace we could be feet from the action but totally comfortable. To be honest it's not quiet at night, but it's an...

I had difficulty in getting a secured parking place for my car. Management should get a car park to secure cars of Guest. The facility could be upgraded to meet the standard of coconut grove Accra and elsewhere.

The Hotel is no longer active, or so we were told at its sister hotel Coconut Grove Beach Resort. May be temporarily closed as the bridge by Elmina Castle is being re-built, but did not receive clear information about it.

Dear Valentina, Please the Hotel is still active, the only challenge is the construction of the Bridge. The reason perhaps, you were informed of not being in existence. The bridge is almost in the finishing state and would be completed in a couple of months. As part of an addition, the hotel organise walking tours of the Elmina Township. Aside...

My sister and I stayed at the Bridge House for a week doing research at the Elmina Castle. Stephen, Dawid, Elizabeth and Mina made our stay so special. Our spacious room overlooked the inlet and we spent hours watching the fishing activities at the foot of the castle. The food was of the best we had in Ghana and the...

We stayed in the second floor, room no. 10. From there you have a phantastic view on the castle on the opposite site and on the entrance of the harbour with the fishermen's boats coming and going and on the fish market. The hotel itself is clean and the restaurant is not bad, although they could show some more enthusiasm...

We stayed here in April to visit Elmina, The staff were great.

It was great just watching life in Elmina, although it was so...

Solo trip to see Elmina and the castle while in Ghana for work, I spent the night at the welcoming, comfortable Coconut Grove Bridge House. This historic stone structure (recently renovated) from the 1800s sits at the end of the bridge over the river outlet to the sea. It is the *perfect* spot to watch fishing boats go out and...

We stayed there for 50 euros a night. It is on a remarkable spot. You are in the middle of the busy village life. Just opposite the slave castle and with a view on the fishing harbour. You can use the facilities of the Coconut Grove Beach Resort with his nice swimming pool. Just a few minutes with the taxi.
