Accra for kids (Places for family visit)

  • La Palm Hotel

    This hotel was once one of the best in Accra, but it is being eclipsed by the new openings: Mövenpick and other improved offerings. With that in mind, it is going through a needed refurbishment process. The rooms have always been good. The 152 rooms (when they are all open) are based in round ‘chalets’ – the idea is it’s a village complex. Standard rooms are large, clean and well laid out, with a flatscreen TV, safe, wireless. The rooms are clean, air conditioned and spacious with comfy beds. It’s the lobby and bar that need work – it’s not the best introduction. This is a shame, because behind it is one the best pool complexes in Ghana, an ideal way to spend a lazy Sunday.

    New is the La Palm Kids Theme Park, a pleasant and safe enclosed park right by the pool. All pool facilities are open to non-residents; be sure to make use of them! Facilities include a casino, fitness centre and spa and sauna. Meals can be taken in the bar. There are several restaurants, including the Royal Dragon Chinese restaurant and the Continental Restaurants – we’d avoid those and head to the open-sided and thatched Ghanaian Village (0302 215 100). There’s often live highlife on weekend evenings – one of the few places to see it. Overlooking the beach, the thatched setting of the Ghanaian Village restaurant is also a highpoint, and a great place to sample Ghanaian dishes such as red red (bean stew with plantain)
