“This is now the New Farah Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

New Farah Hotel previously called (Hotel Residence Farah)
I stayed at this Hotel a few years ago, at the time the hotel was the pits and my holiday was almost ruined, but the staff were so nice and did everything they could to help, it turned out ok in the end, entirely due to the staff.

I went back to the hotel just to meet the staff, whilst I was in Agadir. I could not believe my eyes the hotel was totally refurbished, due to a new owner and it is now called the New Farah Hotel. I ended up not only meeting the original staff but also staying at the hotel.

The staff was courteous and kind as usual and they all looked very happy in their new hotel, thanks to a new professional owner.

Rooms:
Nicely spaced, modern looking, couch in room , 32” tv in sitting area and 1 in bedroom. 2 sinks in bathroom. clean modern and bright. I would say the room was in par with a premier inn room, if not slightly better.

Facilities:
the hotel has 2 restaurants, a bar and an open roof top bar/restaurant in the summer. There is also a Sisha bar in the evening, the hotel seems buzzing in the evening. They have a medium sized but very nice pool at the back and sunbed area around it for around 15/20 people .

The lobby area near reception has comfortable seating and wifi, which works excellent.

The Hotel is very clean, rooms are cleaned every day problems are fixed within minutes of you informing the management , You can see the technicians and repair men around the hotel, which shows that they have a constant team of people maintaining high standards.

Said (sa-eed) is the main manager who is usually on days, very nice guy, helpful and gets any problems sorted immediately.

Booked through Teletext Holidays (Complete Travel Solutions)

AVOID: Complete Travel Solutions

Outdated hotel, old 70s kitchen and bathroom, tiles fallen off botched up repair work with putty broken toilets and taps. taps full of limescale. horrible beds pillows like rocks no regular change of bedware or cleaning. Smelly old furniture. I complained, they gave me another room but it was the same, just a little bigger. complained to rep. he gave me a report.

got back and complained to COMPLETE TRAVEL SOLUTIONS, but no refund, this is a very bad company do not buy your holidays from them. very poor service and they put you up in hotels of this nature.

I think the hotel owner is taking the mickey, to be polite. solong as he can make some money, he is not bothered about updating the hotel. stay well clear of this hotel it really is the pits.

I am not one for 4 or 5 star hotels and I have stayed in some dumps. but this place is the king of dumps.

staff were some of the nicest people I have come across and that was the only good thing about the hotel.

POOL: no pool

RESTAURANT: dirty and outdated. unclean utensils

EAT OUT: go to the local souk (market) this is where the locals eat, well recommended. fish galore, and dirt cheap about £2 for a Tagine (fish cooked in clay pot) 1 pot is enough for 2 people, i think.. same thing in a restaurant will cost you about 2/3 times as much.

VISIT: go to Marakech, its well worth it and stay overnight. book tickets at local coach station about a fiver, cant remember exactly now. loads of cheap places to stay there. from £10.


hope this helps. Javid

We are a couple in our early 60s and enjoyed our stay at Hotel Farah. The room was basic but spotlessly clean and the towels were changed every day. It was nice to have the kitchenette, especially the fridge. Balcony was small but adequate and at back of hotel so although no views it was quiet. The shower head could have done with replacing - it worked but was a bit shabby. There was one evening when we had a problem with no hot water but once reporterd it was soon remedied. Breakfast was served in the rooftop restaurant and was great - freshly squeezed orange juice, boiled eggs, rolls and croissants with jam/cheese and butter. The coffe was great too. Evening meals were served in the ground floor dining room and the food was very good. There was only one night when the service was a little slow and we were thoroughly spoilt by our waiter. All the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful even to the extent of getting stamps for our postcards and posting them for us. Also my husband had a pair of slacks and a shirt laundered at a very reasonable cost. The hotel is a fair walk from the beach but we didn't mind that and if you were very lazy you could take one of the orange taxis. Remember that you are not in England and do not expect the same star rating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return again. It was brilliant value for money

  • Liked — It was brilliant value for money and staff were exceedingly helpful
  • Disliked — It was a little shabby and dated
