This superbly central hotel is set on one of the island’s best beaches on the lively south coast.

If you're looking for a hotel set directly on a picture-perfect beach with a fantastic selection of shops, restaurants and nightlife on your doorstep, then Accra Beach fits the bill. Cross the bridge over the lagoon-style pool and follow the short winding path through the gardens to the beach. Recline on a sun lounger under the shade of a palm tree and admire the sweeping curve of talcum-powder sand and turquoise waters. Swim beneath the pretty waterfall in the pool to the hidden cave or perch on an underwater stool at the swim-up bar while sipping on a refreshing rum punch. Stroll along the scenic boardwalk which runs alongside the beach to discover local restaurants and bars.

If you opt for one of the meal plans then you have a choice of three restaurants. Head to the sea-view terrace at Coco Patch where you can enjoy breakfast and light meals during the day. The Accra Deck offers fine dining on the beautiful oceanfront and the resort's new restaurant, Pacifika, serves Pacific Rim cuisine including Japanese, Thai, Indonesian and Chinese. Entertainment is pretty low-key but there is a lively weekly floor show with steel pan bands, fire eaters, stilt walkers and limbo dancers.

The hotel has a variety of rooms and suites which offer various views, ranging from simple Island View Rooms which overlook the resort and busy streets, to the tranquil Oceanfront Rooms where you can relax in a bubbling Jacuzzi on your balcony while gazing out to sea.
