There are countries in the world where they will try to gyp you on every occasion everywhere you go.. People there don’t realize that such person will never come to their place again. But they can’t help it, it is rooted in their blood, and apparently it is much stronger than any sense of common logic. Unfortunately Marocco is such a country and it’s high on the list.
Following is what transpired in the first TWO DAYS ( yes, 2 DAYS) of our stay in Agadir:
- arriving in Agadir airport we figured changing money in the BANK there should be safe and reliable. Not true. Another bank few steps down the hallway was paying much better rate.
- We wanted to see the Medina there ( thinking that, like in all arab countries, it is a bazaar, a market place with lots of different things to buy). The people at the hotel reception told us to take an orange or red taxi outside. They run on the meter and the fare should bo no more than 25 MAD. We hailed an orange taxi. There was no meter in it and the driver asked for 50 MAD one way. He lowered to 30 when we decided to leave.
It appeared that the „medina” there is not a bazaar. It is a historical village with interesting architecture but an entry fee of 40 MAD p/p. The place was almost totally empty with just few stores open.The bazaar in Agadir is somewhere else and is called the Souk.
-We went to Souk. Lots of stands with everything from fruits and spices to fake watches. The pile of sweet dried dates looked good . The sample they gave us was delicious. We returned to that stand a while later to buy half a kilo .We noticed that the guy is loading the bag with the stuff from the back of the pile. Overdried , small and wrinkled. We emptied the bag and asked to give us the dates from the front. He did not like that to much.
-To the right outside of the hotel is a „travel” office. They offered a trip to Marakesh for a lower price than offered by our tour operator. A guide, tour and the entrance to the gardens and the palace included. When we went again to book it another guy was there. A guide will cost extra and the entrances have to be paid separately (unless we bring them at least two other people to go on this tour.
-There are outdoor fish stands/eateries by the entrance to the port in Agadir. A mixed plate there cost 34 MAD. It is visibly posted on the boards . We made sure to make it clear that we ordered only for one person. You probably guessed already that they wanted double the price. If it wasn’t for a loud objection who knows how it would ended
-The description of our hotel given by the tour operator clearly states that the water in the pool is heated during the winter time. It was December 8th but the water was so cold that a dip in it might have caused a hypothermia. Only a bunch of seagulls swimmed in the pool with pleasure.
-There is a jaccuzi in the hotel states the description. Yes the jaccuzi is there but without any water in it.
All this and more happened on our first TWO days. We have five more to go on. Don’t know how we’re gonna cope as it really makes you tired. Very tired.
Hotel is managed badly by the new owners. We spoke to one of them, he was glad to leave back for Maiorca, where he lives. The personel says the owners just pocket the money, instead of investing it.
Hard to rate this place. One thing for sure, the dates are delicious and sardines are the best in the world. And the weather was nice and sunny.

The only fault that I found with this hotel was the food , although I consider my self a fussy eater I always left the dining room satisfied with what I had chosen. . The dining room is open from 7 until 10:00 pm therefore e a micro-wave would have been appreciated to reheat the food which were already in warming trays but by the time we got to dinner the food was warm . Chef Hassan Idnoulay night was the best as he had chosen to limit the range of food ,on that night we went to dinner early, so the food was hot and tasty

The entertainment crew were great as they managed to get the guests up and dancing . I saw two traditional groups one from Morocco and the other from South Africa both were brilliant

As for having no towels ,I did not use the pool but those who did, I was not aware of any complaints about the service around the pool

Upon arrival we had to pay the tax which is a government requirement,luckily we had some dirhamas but I am sure the receptionist would have allowed us to pay the next day.

As for our room , it was spacious and clean . We were given the option of moving to another room for more of a sea view but chose not to . The water was very hot and the water pressure excellent

The hotel is very close to the beach and shopping facilities , my friend and walked it every where and felt very safe doing so , even at night

This hotel represents very good value for money and I would definitely go back there . The staff were helpful and attentive .

The grounds of the hotel were very clean as was the hotel itself

No complaints , five days spent in pleasant and comfortable surroundings

We have just come back from a 10 day all inclusive stay at Tivoli,and I believe a holiday is what you make it which is why I had a fantastic time!!Thank you Le Tivoli!

I know the hotel is under new management,and like everything under change,it takes time to make improvements,here is our review which I hope will help to improve standards and future feedback for this hotel!It has potential!!

On 1st arrival,we were asked to pay taxes which we were prepared for from previous reviews seen on here,however it would be better to include these fees within bookings made,and not requested upon check in!

A lovely porter took our bags to our room (which was a heavy bag) and we received our sea view room as booked,the room was basic but fully functional apart from lack of kettle/fridge/waste bin and phone in rooms!The beds were hard,however we all slept surprisingly well during our stay! No phone in the lifts if they broke down though and a few stairwell lights not working?

Food was very basic,with no tags to describe what the dishes were (which is vital for anyone with allergies),the food wasn't hot either,but the waiters were so fantastic and friendly!

Spa is not advertised well,but the treatment and staff were great!Please relocate the spa to the lovely grounds that surround the hotel,you will get bookings!

Entertainment staff are a great bunch of people,willing to sit with you and get to know you!Miss their friendly faces,but more activities/budget needs to be provided (Snake charmer would be exciting)?

Overall,All the staff worked very hard to make sure our stay was enjoyable and I could see they were all trying to do there best with what they had to offer,keep up the hard work with the refurbishments and take the reviews on board and you can't go wrong Le Tivoli!Thank you for having us,we made the best of what we got and made great friends!

This hotel should be at best 3 star. Be prepared to take your own towels as none is provided at the poolside. Managed badly under new owners. Watch out of the local room charge you will be over charged for. Food below average. Staff not responsive to requests. Are happy to leave mess and rubbish without any care or consideration for others. Not surprised this hotel was well under occupied. Not recommended for people with disabilities as too many steps no ramps into or out of reception area. No toilet facilities nearby pool or refreshments. Toilet in reception area is in the basement. Would ask low cost holidays to send someone to inspect this hotel before carrying on selling as four star. Very dissapointed.

Just returned from this hotel today.. Before I went I looked on here for 'an honest opinion' type of review..I couldn't really find one so I thought I'd put one on for anyone who's booked or thinking of booking..

First of all this is NOT a 4star hotel..it's a 3star at best

Bad points- food is limited for choice and not typically English so be prepared to eat out quite a bit unless your used to typical African/Muslim food..even consider half board as the local restaurants are reasonably priced for food that you'd recognise..and there's Mcdonalds and Pizza Hut close by..the grill house at the top of the road was very good(out of hotel turn right to the top of the road)
Not the cleanest hotel room I've seen, very tired in places especially the bathrooms which have been plastered(very amateurish) a few times round the edges The bedding wasn't 'Daz' white either
One small pool that isn't the cleanest I've seen
Some of the staff are quite rude(man in the bar AM was very grumpy and one of the ladies on reception would NEVER give us exchange money whatever time we tried and didn't really care that the local cash machine wasn't working) The old guy on reception was very good and would really go out of his way to help, thank you!
The bar shuts at 11pm prompt..after this there is nowhere to obtain a drink within the hotel including water..very frustrating when you've paid all inclusive
Beds are very hard and pillows are lifeless and hard
Not much access for wheelchairs or heavy cases..lots of steps instead

Good points- most of the staff are polite and friendly
Free wifi in reception area
Outdoor bar and toilets now in progress(much needed)
Good value got money(we paid £550all inc for 10 nights) don't pay more though
Situated In the quieter side of Agadir but within walking distance of the busier harbour area
Entertainment staff did their best

Overall- it's ok for somewhere to sleep and sunbathe..be warned that just about everyone (English) complained about the lack of choice for food and the repetitiveness..the hotel needs to rectify this quickly for the Brits..please listen!

Don't expect 4star and you'll be fine..you get what you pay for and on that basis the hotel is good

Just returned from a 7 day stay at this hotel in October 2013, having to pay local tourist tax at checkin at 03.45hrs or not get to bed did not set up any form of trust. Room and its facilities were good, in fact first time we have not requested to change rooms in a while, pool and pool area provided a good place to relax and swim, the complex was of a good standard. Reception area furniture was upgraded while we were there, as was some decor. Alcohol was plentiful but of limited choice and not served after 23.00hrs even if you are a paying guest. BUT what let this Hotel down, and very badly, was the so called restaurant (more like a canteen) and the limited choice of low quality food, good for weight loss if dieting but not if you wish to enjoy an all inclusive holiday . Luckily there are local restaurants that have excellent menus and excellent food unfortunately we had to spend money we were allotting for other things which we had to miss out on. Obviously this hotel is trying to develop its complex and reputation but under funding something as important as all inclusive dining and food will only result in lost customers and trade THE LIFE BLOOD OF A HOTEL.
