In terms of location, I rank them as follows:

1. Accra

2. Hilton

3. Colony Club

In terms of facilities, amenities including restaurants/pools/bars, beach etc, I rank them as follows:

1. Hilton

2. Accra

3. Colony Club

I personally would go for either Accra or Hilton. There is much more to do within walking distance of Accra than Hilton for sure. However, Hilton has better rooms, amenities, food etc. All of Hilton's rooms have a balcony and either a view of the ocean or of Carlisle Bay, where as, most of Accra's rooms view inland, with some ocean view rooms on offer and few balconies.

Something for you and your significant other to ponder I reckon.

Hope this helps

With Accra you have easy access to the south coast boardwalk and its restaurants and walking path etc. However if you get a room on the road side of the hotel there will be traffic noise. There is also a smallish shopping mall across the road from Accra and a spa which might be a nice treat for your anniversary gift. The beach at Accra is also quite good though the water can be 'wavey'.

If calm sea is a priority for you then I would go for the Colony Club on the West Coast. Nice peaceful location but within very easy reach of Holetown.

I generally stay on the south coast but I do agree with Babiface on this one - it seems a very good deal at the Colony Club to me. My second choice would be Accra Beach as explained by Mrs BB. The beach at the Hilton is lovely too - enjoy your stay whatever you decide.

The Colony Club is a lovely 4 star Hotel set in beautiful garden surroundings, on one of the best beaches on the West Coast, in close proximity to Holetown with it's highly varied shopping, restaurants and bars ------------------ I do not beleive the other 2 hotels mentioned hold a candle to it for your requirements.
