“Apart from the rooms, it's very hostel like”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

So we got there and first thing we were asked to do was pay the local tax which was 106 dirhams per person. We were not aware of this abd hadnt exchanged money so asked the receptionist if we could pay later.
Given keys to our room, we couldn't wait to have a nap. We had a 7am flight so were awake since 4! Upon entering our room, the room hadn't been cleaned following the previous occupants exit! Croissants all over the dresser, beds unmade, rubbish everywhere. I was appalled. Anyway thought we'd have lunch and hopefully by then it would be sorted having spoken to reception.
An hour later the room still wasn't made and in total we waited 3 hours! When it was finally made we had no towels. We got told the towels were being laundered and we'd get them at 7! So they only had enough for one set of towels for entire hotel!!!!
Food was ok, not great. Chicken was always dry. Food extremely bland. Pizzas were great but They only did margherita. We lived off pizza pretty much. Desserts were awful. Tiny little pieces of extremely dry sugary cake. Same thing every day. If u want fruit, then there's oranges and errrr oranges! You were never waited on. You have to get up and fill your own drinks from a vending machine. No bar when eating! There's a man that hands out wine near the buffet area but again no waiter service.
The feel we got from hotel was very hostel like. Just the look, smells etc. an extremely cold feeling.
The pool stank of detergent like chlorine. No beach towel cards. If you need a beach towel you need to put 100 dirhams deposit down ( about £10) and the towels were worn out.
Night entertainment was extremely depressing. All French and catered for over 60's. It really was bad!!!
Oh and everything, I mean everything is in French! You're lucky if you find somebody speaking English!
The rooms are nice and clean. No iron or hairdryer. Toiletries are super cheap ones in tiny sachets so don't rely on those.
Seagulls did my head in. They're all over the hotel and loud!!! They wake you up at sunrise and start again at sunset. One time, one flew into the pool and a flock followed! All coz somebody had dropped a piece of chicken in the pool!!! Ugh!!!
The location was fantastic. We got taxis everywhere coz we were lazy but everything is walking distance. And if you do get a taxi always ask them to put their meter on! We were made aware of this on last day so got ripped off throughout our stay!!!! It's single fare for day and double for night.
So basically you get what you pay for. It's Ok value for money. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. More like a 2 or 3 star at max. If I'd known exactly what it was like I'd have much rather paid the extra £100 and stayed in a decent 5 star hotel.

booked with ASDA Travel.Fantastic holiday,every thing went like clockwork,staff at the
Alomohades could not do enough for us,people whingeing on about it is all french
it was french in the 50s until independence,second language in schools is french
big french influence in Agadir all ways has been.I suggest you whingers learn a language
there was an english pub you could allways get your fish&chips &mushypeas,&a copy
of sun.alternatively stay in england.Flew with BMI could not fault them either.
been to agadir many years ago,it has changed for the best,definitely go again.

Overall it was a good holiday however there were quite a few things that put a damper on our holiday. The first thing being our room- the paint was chipped the balcony dirty and the bathroom was in quite bad condition. Secondly, we were constantly bothered around the pool to join in with activities and when we didn't were told we were 'boring' and 'lazy' so one day we did join in with a game of darts and was completely left out as everything was in French! Likewise, the entertainment, music and shows that were put on were all in French therefore making us feel extremely uncomfortable and intimidated to even sit in the lobby in the evening,

However, we let that the location, food and waiters service made up for this- one night a waiter even made someone who had finished their food move so we could eat! We also did an excursion to a fantasia evening which we would highly recommend. Therefore it was good value for money.

Room Tip: Get a family room on the ground floor as we were told they were much nicer

The hotel has been refurbished and is really tastefully decorated. There is a nice pool area and the restaurant serves lovely authentic Moroccan food. The staff are very friendly, helpful and polite. There is also a private area of the beach which is lovely, although it can get very windy.

The only down side for me was being english as everything is in french. Some of the staff speak english, but as their second language is french, not many of them learn it.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room overlooking the pool and with adequate lighting.

Whilst the hotel is good value, the food good, in a good position and some of the staff helpful there is a culture that is designed to exclude English speakers. All entertainment, notices, announcements, activities were exclusively in French. Some staff tried to speak English on a one to one basis but not for any events. The entertainment team were a constant nuisance from 0930 - 1700 around the pool area with very loud music blasting out only interrupted by equally loud shouting of coming events, in French. They walked around the pool effectively harrassing people and, if you had the cheek to fall asleep in the sun, they would wake you up to shout at you in French. We would not recommend this hotel unless you are French and deaf!

Room Tip: Try and get a family room like Room 4 for space and peace and quiet
