The staff very friendly, always looking for an opportunity to be helpful. A few negatives In making the booking we specifically requested a quiet private room and we're happy to...

Fanta's Folly is located by a wonderfully serene and clean beach surounded by palm trees. The bungalows are clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The service here is outstanding and the food is great (more like international and not so much Ghanaian). Breakfast is good, they have nice snacks and super tasty dinner options. I can fully recommend this place, it's...

Philippe the owner is impolite, the road to this place is dangerous and needs a 4x4 car, the accomodation is not safe, there is no way to get first aid in case of injury, there is no thing except the ocean!!!!

We had a wonderful time at Fanta's Folly. The bungalows are all directly on one of the most beautiful beaches in Ghana. They all have their own terrace with sun chairs so you can enjoy the view. There is no AC, but the temperature is perfect with the sea wind coming into the room. The managers as well as the...

We've heard good comments from friends long time ago so we decided to try this place for easter and had a bad experience. They have invested a lot in making it look nice but it was very dirty, the bungalow was very dusty everywhere even in the most visible places....so you can imagine how the corners and under beds were....

Fanta's Folly will definitely remain one of the few places at the coast where will will keep going back. As an expat family coming from Kenya, we didn't expect much but Fanta has been a real surprise: nice & simple piloti wooden beach bungalows, a beautiful beach, wonderful slow food prepared with French know how, a nice sea turtle project,...

This is a very nice resort on a beautiful stretch of Butre Beach. I spent 9 nights here with my partner hoping for a relaxing holiday. In the past, I've stayed or eaten at several nearby resorts, including The Hideout, Green Turtle, Ezile Bay, Safari Beach Lodge, Busua Inn, Busua Beach Resort, Axim Beach Resort, Coconut Grove, etc. Fanta's Folly...
