Adventures in Ghana Says:
BEYIN BEACH RESORT was the absolute highlight of our trip. The chalets are beautiful – huge wooden beds, white linen, chiffon curtains billowing in the doorway on to your own private veranda and view of palm trees and ocean. And all this for GH40 cedis per night!
The food is fantastic, especially the Ghanaian dishes, and Nina is a wonderful hostess. Welcoming, relaxed and happy to provide information on the local area and surrouding attractions, such as Nzelezo.
If you are interested, Nina will wake you in the morning if turtles have hatched so you can watch them take their first swim!
Relaxing, peaceful, beautiful, romantic – BBR is highly recommended.
On the flip side we also stayed at Green Turtle Lodge and thought it was over-rated. The self-contained rooms are beautiful and well designed and their environmental credentials well-earned, but food was distinctly average and we found the staff to be completely dis-interested. The camping offer is disgusting – around 8 tents with flea ridden mattresses crammed in to a small hut on the edge of the beach – its more like a refugee camp than a resort. The beach here is stunning but Green Turtle has work to do if it is to live up to the review in the Guide Book. Apparently Beyin Beach Resort are taking over the Green Turtle conservation programme. If its a choice between the 2 places Beyin wins hands down.
