Me and my partner stayed here for 8 nights from the 6th of July. We weren't sure what to expect, and we were more then pleased with what we got. The room was basic, but this is tobe expected, you can't judge hotels abroad by english standards. The channels on the TV in the room werel imited to News, but this was okay as you dont go on holiday to watch TV?! The bed was comfy and the towels were changed each day. The bathroom facilities were okay, the hot water was fine adn the shower had good force, though it lacked a bracket so you had to hold it over you or have a bath. We requested the pool view, so we could have a balcony and not be road facing, we did get a balcony and though not over the pool, we had a nice view of the mountain, and also overlooked a cute gang of kittens, as Agadir seems to be full of alley cats. The lobby abd bar area far passed what we expected, and the hotel was absolutly spotless. I dont think i have ever stayed somewhere so clean. The pool was cool, but when the sun is out its welcome refreshment. sadly the sun isnt always out in Agadir, though it is hot, its very misty and most mornigns it stays, though sometimes it lifts.
There was free wifi in the lobby and they are friendly english speaking staff. The breakfast became a little repetative, as it was only breads but it surficed. There is no air con but you dont need it as you can leave your balcony door open and the temp outside is cooler, there are also no tea facilties in the room, though you can from the pool bar, so ifyour a die hard tea fan, take a travel kettle. we didnt drink the water there we only used bottled water.
It was only a short walk to the beach and shops, the main market was a little further, but for about 15dhs, or just over a pound you can get a taxi.
We made a mistake going during ramadam, it was unplanned, and while you can offer sympathy and respect for there choices, the locals will make you aware that they are hungry and thus grumpy. They will still serve you food, though some might not, and a lot is closed until later in the evening when they are allowed to eat. but this didnt effect the hotel at all.
All in all, i loved the hotel, and would stay there again, im not sure i would go back to the country, but thats personal choice on what you like, there is a distinct lack of tourist there, which can leave the towns dead during ramadam, or people to talk to. but with a little boost in tourism, and money this cuold be wonderful desitination.
