Amaryllis or Bougainvillea?

Which of these hotels would you recommend for a first-time visiting couple? We were going to stay at the Accra, but it's become unavailable through our booking agency. We liked the fact that the Accra was close to a lot of shops and restaurants...which of these other two properties would be a good substitute? I've read the reviews on both, and they seem comparable.

If it was my choice I would choose Bougainvillea, accommodation is very nice etc. and it's closer to many restaurants and nightlife....Amarylis is a little further (not much) out!

Of those two - Bougainvillea would be my choice too. It's a lovely resort on a lovely beach. Well set up for self catering too.

I would definitly choose Bouganvillea. We just returned, and while in Barbados checked out the Amaryllis. Very nice hotel, beautiful grounds and facilities, however the beach was not good. Very shallow, and coarse sand. The Bouganvillea has IMHO one of the nicest beaches in the area. If you do decide with going there, I would recommend staying away from the deluxe rooms, as they can be a bit noisy (ajoining rooms, proximity to the pools and bar)..
