Fantas Folly is a small rather budget resort on a very quiet and secluded part of the beach. It is ideal for relaxing for a couple of days on the beautiful beach The huts are nice, but little run-down. The food in the restaurant is excellent, I could say the best we had on our visit to Ghana. The best...

This was my third visit in 5 years and each one has been a pleasure from the food to the service and accommodation. On my most recent visit I was so happy to find it as i remembered from 2 years ago. The buildings are nicely designed and very well maintained. The food is as good as ever and the...

The rooms are in solidly built wooden structures on stilts right next to a wonderful beach. They're beautifully decorated and have a terrace where you can read your book while listening to waves crashing on a golden beach lined with coconut trees. The owners Fanta and Philippe and their staff are wonderful hosts who still behave like human beings instead...

My boyfriend and I have stayed at Fantas Folly a number of times over thr past year and we absolutely love it. Every visit has been consistently good. The owners and their staff are lovely and always very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are beautifully decorated, simple but have everything you need. The food is always a highlight of our...

Nice location..... thats about it. The rooms were SO DAMP. SO damp. All out stuff was ruined after two nights there. You can't swim in the sea, and theres nothing to do.... even a ball would have been great! The food was poor, tiny portions and no flexibility. If you stay here, go to hideout lodge to eat and get...

The location is really paradisiac, but it has a price: really long to come through a really difficult non paved road. Rooms are ok, it's rustic but it's not expensive and it's clean. The restaurant is acceptable, you have to order 2 or 3 hours before to be served in time...like all beach restaurants in Ghana. The prices are acceptable...

After a long journey from Accra we were ready to relax and enjoy a stay on the beach..... oh dear. Someone had decided to cancel our confirmed booking without any form of notification, a little distressing, but what followed was frankly shocking and unprofessional. The owner was extremely unhelpful - no offer to help find alternative accommodation and no apologies...

Fanta's was probably a great place to stay. But things have changed. We travelled 5 hours by car with kids and we were sent away in the most impolite and rude way by the owner last week. Our reservation confirmed by multiple mails several days before was considered as non valid and cancelled without a single warning mail or phone...

A great place to stay, fantastic food and amazing beach. The stilted huts are a stones throw from the beach, although basic they are actually really comfortable. Philippe and Fanta are both great hosts and made everyone in my group very welcome.
