My husband and I visited in October 2017.
We arrived at lunchtime to find the place empty, went for a walk and came back later.
The guide we had was excellent. He lives on-site and speaks very good English. He was able to answer all of our questions.

I visited the fort on my last day in Axim. Upon entering, I couldn't find any tour guide at the entrance so I entered and started touring myself. Which is bad. The place is being inhabited by a family. The sanctity of the place should be preserved better and more seriousness should be taken to make it a one stop tourist site. Especially the area around it and leading to the fort. Security is very poor there.

Needed to be remodeled and fenced to attract the necessary tourist visits and attention. The location close to the Sea is fantastic. I did not get the history behind the building whilst there apart form the terse inscription o the frontage.

The Fort has been recently renovated in 2012. It has a museum with good information and exhibits. I took the guided tour which was very informative and cost about 10USD. It is easily accessible in the fishing village of Axim and has beautiful views out into the fishing bay. A must do if you are in the area.

Guide was pretty casual and asking for financial support. The tour could be so much more and presented more enthusiastically. The displays were interesting. Learning trip to Elmina (St. George's) might help as their guides are much better.

Tour guide seemed in a hurry or not interested probably because it was just me and my husband. He seemed quite knowledgeable though

We had to search around and wait for someone to open the fort but then our guide was great. Similar to the Cape coast castles. If you're in axim, you must see this castle

The Fort which is supposed to be the biggest fort in Ghana seems to be the most abandoned fort in Ghana. The guide to the place wasn't nice as he sounded rude on reception. There was no receipt for monies paid and this will obviously make it difficult for the Tourist Board to track revenues generated.
The good in the fort is the museum that was funded by a Netherlands funding agency. More needs to be done by local authorities and the Ghana Tourist Board to attract tourists to the place.
