“OK for a night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I stayed at the Mabrouk for a night in February 2013. To say that this hotel has seen better days is something of an understatement! However, it was fine for one night. I paid only 20 Euros for a single room, including breakfast. The hotel must have been quite smart when it was first built but now has an air of neglect and decay about it. The furniture in my room was rather tatty, although the bed was quite comfortable. Everything in the bathroom worked after a fashion, although the 'hot' water was only tepid. I found the staff on reception and in the restaurant pleasant enough.

Breakfast was supposed to kick off at 0730 but for some reason I had to wait until 0830 - presumably because the kitchen staff were late in turning up for work. Fortunately, I was in no great rush - unlike a few other guests, who left without having had breakfast. When it eventually came, it was OK - standard Moroccan breakfast fare.

The location is fine, just a short walk from the Corniche and Agadir's long, sandy beach. I would recommend a restaurant more or less next door to the Mabrouk called 'Le Jazz' - a very nice ambience and excellent food and wine at a reasonable price. A British singer provided tuneful and relaxing entertainment on the evening I was there.

Agadir in late Feb felt a bit like Blackpool out of season! Everyone was complaining how cold it was, although everything is relative! I can't say that it's one of my favourite places in Morocco. One has to bear in mind, however, the old Agadir was almost entirely destroyed in an appalling earthquake in 1960, with major loss of life (at least 15,000 people) and more than 35,000 inhabitants left homeless.

I think that if I returned to Agadir, I would probably choose another hotel, one rather less down at heel. However, for what I paid, I really can't complain.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

I originally went to the Argana hotel. But when they quoted 420 Dhs per night I went to check the Mabrouk which is the next door and I got a room for 200Dhs.
I have been to the Argana on several occasions and I will never knock it or write bad about. But this time I was pleasantry surprised with the Mabrouk and the rate of their rooms.

Location:
Right on Boulevard 20 Out, famous for some top nosh restaurants & bars, nightclubs and shops. There are even a post office and a couple of bureaus of change. 5 minutes to the beach. Just beside there is an alley with street artist displaying and selling their crafts

The Hotel
Although the hotel is rated as 4*, I would only grant it 3*. It is only 3 floors up and the reception area is in the middle with the restaurant on one side and the bar on the side.
The swimming pool is huge and there is an abundance of sun loungers around it. There are also some tables and chairs on one side of it. On another side there is a poolside bar, and just few steps away there is the solarium area with more sun loungers and another snack bar. The area by the pool is a well kept large very green garden.
The hotel main inside bar is called Red Lion.

The staff
The welcome was very friendly and the receptionists were very friendly and always smiling and there was never any hint of malice or hostility from any member of staff. They are all also trustworthy. I always unpack my personal belongings & stuff in such a way that, on my return to the room, I would immediately notice if they have been interfered with while I am out. That was never the case.

The room
Superbly clean and tidy. The beds are confortable and headboards is made of carved dark wood, and the bed cover and the balcony curtain are splendidly colourful to match the hint of an orange paint of the wall.
The wardrobe was full scale one with plenty of storage space. On the side facing the wall there is a dresser, small table & chair and above the dresser there is the TV.
Bathroom was spotless with bright beautiful marble tiles. The bath and the over head shower are also spotless and there was no shortage of hot water.
Ground floor rooms have a tiled patio area with chairs and a table and a parasol. Upper rooms have a balcony with chairs and table.

Breakfast
Very continental. Coffee, bread, croissant, eggs, jam, butter and some fruit juice.

The only annoying drawback to this hotel and for unknown reasons is that they seem to turn the power off for a certain period of time during afternoon.

Room Tip: Any grounf floor room immediatly at the back of the reception desk has a very nice tiled patio facin...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2011

We decided to stay in this hotel purely for its location (a 5 minute walk to the beach) and that it had a swimming pool. Cant really complain after paying 314 dirham for the night for a double room (£26) The hotel obviously has seen better days and as with the rest of Agadir & Morocco could do with a good tidy up. None the less it was clean and linen was changed daily. The breakfast was good with Croissants, bread & Jam, boiled egg and a yoghurt. What we found most amusing was that there was intermittent hot water and electricity - we guessed that this was purely a money saving exercise. If your on a budget and want the location then you cant really go wrong as everything else this close to the beach was at least twice the price.
