I'll resume our experiences quickly (in order of importance):

The hotel is old and more expensive than any of the definitely better equipped new hotels in agadir. We changed to a better one paying about 2/3 of the price!

Room: No hot water and only a bathtub in the bath without an option to hold the shower head... that does not make foe a comfortable shower experience. The bath and room smelled not very good because of the humidity in the room.

Reception: I did an online reservation, which apparently had not been confirmed, so instead of the discount we had to pay the full price. Additionally, the night receptionist was not cooperative and couldn't help us find some place to have dinner...

We stayed in this hotel for 7 nights. The staff were very friendly and offered a good informative service of all the local places. Hotel Kamal is perfectly located and the beach only a 10 minutes’ walk away. The swimming pool is probably the cleanest I have ever been. The sun beds are wiped down before you sit down every morning and the lovely relaxing pool area is spotless. A great place to stay and excellent value for money. Special thanks to Brahim from reception, Abdellah and Hamza from front bar nad pool bar.
All the best

We stayed 2 nights and found the hotel well located, good value and staff very attentive and helpful. Our stay was during Ramadan so the hotel seemed almost empty, which seemed a shame really.

Taxi from the airport and bus station were 200dh and 20dh respectively. It was an easy 5-10min stroll to the promenade.
The rooms were spacious and have a good sized balcony, although no AC :( we left our balcony door open which proved pretty noisy (as there were Ramadan celebrations into the wee hours).
Like the hotel, the pool is quite large and quite private.

We were recommended a day tour to tiznit and a berber village, by the staff which turned out great.

I would recommend this hotel

This is about my 12th time at the Hotel Kamal! I like it because its small and central.You meet a lot of old friends, its very very clean and well run!. Staff as always are helpful, friendly and courteous. Travelling alone this time didnt bother me as I was made to feel very welcome indeed!
The reception area is lovely, having been recently refurbished, the pool immaculate, and the dining room very pleasant for your evening meal. Towels are changed daily and linen at least 2 a week. Although I was B&B there are plenty cafe/restaurants nearby. If its just a snack the cafe Verandha is good value, the restaurant Caverna is not too bad and Restuarant Scampi is good but pricey! Of course The Kamal restuarant offers good value and the poolside snack area is very pleasant indeed and service good.
There is no entertainment in the hotel but if you like dancing ....quicksteps etc or just to get out take a taxi to the reception Hotel Beach Club where there is a group singing 50s, 60s 70s etc.
The atmosphere is friendly and you meets lots of nice people. Drink is not badly priced! If after your dancing and you want a late night, walk across to the Restuarant Ceasar....food and service good and usually a regular singer.....atmosphere mainly Moroccan but good fun! Going home about 2am the taxi shouldnt be more than 30 dirhams. Out of 28 nights I went 21! Was shattered!!
Taxis are now subsidized by the government..so a town centre trip should be about 5 to 6 dirhams...certainly not more than 10 dirhams. Always check the meter is on and take the taxi no. The souks are great fun but be prepared to relax, laugh and smile! Tablecloths are great value especially the hand embroidered linen...good for wedding presents and ladies the nighties in the souk are super.. long with sleeves...good for the hot water bottle and well priced! Note I am female!! Sandy Mackay is my cat! Take your hot water bottle with you especially in January/February......its about 65 degrees then!!
If flying into Marrakech there is a good bus service to Agadir...but reserve your seat at the Supratours bus station or the CTM Bus station. Single fare is about 100dhs. The journey time on the new motorway is about 3.50 hrs to Agadir bus station where you can get a taxi to the Kamal....watch the price! about 30 dirhams. When out in Feb exchange rate was about 13dhs to the £ Sterling. Needless to say I return again to the Hotel Kamal in February 2013 for 4 weeks!!

Room Tip: The family rooms along the tiled corridor..opposite reception and above the swimming pool.

Agadir is a lovely seaside resort and the Kamal is very close to the beach and town.
We enjoyed the ease of the streets and the beautiful promedad walkway. The
Evenings were very safe for strolling and of coarse the food was great. The hotel has a
beautiful pool and is very well kept and clean.

Room Tip: Any room is fine

Still can't believe how cheap this holiday was over all. Two weeks (peak Easter time for us here) was just under £1000 for 2 people, including flights from UK.

Bed and breakfast basis (there are plenty of restaurants near by serving good food). Room cleaned every day; clean sheets and towels every day. The room was comfortable and fine for the amount of time you spend in it. There is an en suite bathroom with shower and bath. Some rooms have balconies also. All rooms have tv and sockets for that all important travel kettle (ok, I'm sad; I like my tea on hols!).

Lunch is available and there is a snackbar by the pool open between 11 and 5pm, with a reasonably varied, reasonably priced lunch snack menu. The pool is a decent size and is very clean; cleaned daily. In fact the whole hotel is spotlessly clean and staff are very welcoming. We could not belief how quiet the place was during our 2 weeks there. On the 2nd floor, there is a huge balcony with a few sun loungers, which was unused the whole time we were there, except by us. Occasionally, we took lunch out with us and a bottle of wine; very pleasant!

Agadir is not the most attractive of places in the world but there are plenty of opportunities to see the local culture and a visit to the souk (market place) was an experience. Red taxis are the way to travel around here and are VERY cheap; all trips are metered (make sure you check they have put the metre on). Only use white taxis for great distances and agree prices first.

Hotel Kamal is fairly central to most things in Agadir. Short walking distance for shops (including a 'fixed price' shop so no haggling if you tire easily of this 'game'), papers (limited English ones if you want those), restaurants and bars etc. THere is a great restaurant a couple of doors away (the Scampi) with a fantastic menu for evening meals; very useful as the Hotel restaurant was closed in the evenings when we stayed. The beach is about 15 minutes walk (or less if you're in to speed walking). The beach, as you would expect on the coast there, is quite breezy, so pick your days there carefully or prepare to get sand blasted.

The weather was glorious, as it is almost all year round. Temperature charts state 20 - 23 degrees in April but it was much hotter than this many days we were there (nearer to 30), which with the breeze from the coast, was very pleasant.

All in all, if you want a cheap break for sun, warmth and almost constant blue skies, this is a good place to go; not quite as far as the Canary Islands, and in my opinion, much better weather. If you want more culture and more things to see, then you would possibly not enjoy it. There are a few places to visit, eg a trip up to the Kasbah is a must for the views. Our Rep said it was in walking distance (gees, she must like hiking long distances!); we took a red taxi, which waited while we took in the views (30 mins or so, agreed a price). There are camels up there so be prepared to say 'no' and sound like you mean you don't want to ride one, otherwise they can harrass you quite a bit. Also, don't accept 'helpful guidance' from anyone anywhere as they will charge you for their advice and 'tour' !!

Room Tip: Go to lastminute.com for a fantastic deal. Ask for a balcony room or room near the top (3rd floor...
