“Good choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Staff: Everyone is friendly (receptionist, waiter, chef, cleaners) and almost everyone speaks english (not fluent but it’s ok, they can understand you and you can understand them). They always tried to help us in everything.

Food: We arrived late night (1 pm) and they gave us some cold dinner, which was so great and enough. After that every morning there is some fresh orange, grapefruit, cucumber juice, coffe, tea, fresh croissants (raisins, chocolate etc), you can order omlet, there is cheese, cold meat, honey, jam, beans, fruits, so large selection of breakfast. (We missed some sausage and frankfurter, boiled eggs.) The dinner every evening was almost the same: some grilled meat (mostly turkey/chicken and fish), soup, meatballs, kuskus, tagine and some fresh fruit (water and honey melon mostly). And you have to pay for drinks, which is weird for us, because in the morning you can choose a lot of free juice and in the evening you have to pay for these. Actually the kitchen is great, but after few days the meals can be boring because you eat almost the same things every day.

Room and cleaning: we had a room with pool view, it was really nice! The rooms are big, with balcony, so you can enjoy the sunshine and the view from your room. Everything is clean and you have enough space to packing. In the rooms you can find a safe which is working with your own code. The hotel is really quiet so we had a great sleep there.

Spa: You can choose from a lot of massage there, but it’s quite expensive. The girls can’t speak English, just a few words, it was hard to understand them. Which is weird: you can use only the sauna for free! If you want anything else (hammam) you have to pay. But the spa is beautiful, clean, quiet and calm.

Location: It’s a bit far away from the city (around 30 minutes walking, or 5-10 minutes by taxi), but it’s quiet and you can get a taxi to the city for 20 dirhams (around 1,6£), so the distance was never problem for us.

Price: every price was correct. Half bottle moroccan wine is around 80-110 dirhams, a coke (sprite etc) 20 dirhams, cocktails 60-70 dirhams, pizza 60-70 dirhams, Marlboro 32 dirhams.

Agadir was our last stop in our trip in Morocco - certainly not the most inspiring one though... We arrived at hotel Timoulay after a hardcore bus trip from Essaouira, but we were made to wait for at least 15-20 mins as the online system wouldn't recognise our booking. Got a tad impatient but the receptionist made-up for the wait - she apologised and offered us a couple of sauna vouchers. The room was pretty decent, spacious and bright but seriously lacking in character compared to the amazing traditional riads we had visited in Marrakesh and Essaouira. Looks like any western hotel one can get in any of their business trips. We had dinner twice which I have to admit was tasty and came in abundancy given the buffet laid out in the restaurant but turned out to be a bit pricey. There was hardly anything to do or see around and we were seriously knackered by all the travelling, therefore decided to chill by the swimming pool. To our disappointment, the only day we could spent sunbathing turned out to be cloudy. However, the snacks by the pool were a nice treat. The pool itself is huge but not maintained to perfection - there were missing tiles and mould growing in the voids. The stuff was friendly and welcoming and the service quick and efficient. I wouldn't recommend the cocktails - asked for a Caipirinha which was simply undrinkable, more like sour lime juice to say the least. The entertainment overall was a bit of a let-down and too dated for my liking. Playback tracks, reminded us of karaoke performance by wanna-be second class singer. Pretty clean hotel - was only bothered by the strong acid smell of some chlorine product they used to mop the floor. To sum up, recommended for families that want a super-chilled holiday but not my cup of tea really.

A spotless hotel with fantastic large rooms, overlooking pool area and ocean in the distance.
I would say that all staff were very attentive except the bar area, 99% of the time we had to go and search for someone to serve us.
I found the food very well presented but nothing special and the hot dishes in the evening were just warm not hot as they should be.
Its a very quiet hotel at one point there was only 6 of us around the pool, so plenty of spaces and freshly laundered towels. The evenings were the worst, for two days we had a singer playing an organ, he repeated the same songs the next evening and then he never came back and there was just an empty stage with background music. The restaurant seems a bit 'soul less' no atmosphere, perhaps because there season hadn't fully started?? If you arrive late evening, the hotel provides a salad plate, however, this is classed as one of your evening meals so on your last night, you don't get an evening meal even though you are still there at 8/8.30pm
In short, a great chill out, spotless, but lacked atmosphere (sorry)

Room Tip: I think all the rooms face the pool, ask for a sea view and perhaps one not next to the building wor...

This is a fantastic hotel with charming staff. As soon as you walk in you are made to feel welcome. All rooms have great views WIFI (Free) and a great film Chanel in English. The rooms are very big and great for a chill. Please, please do not be put off with the neighbouring works that are ongoing you really do not hear any noise! I have read people moan about the location. I like a moan trust me. You are a 15 min walk in to the centre or a £1.50 taxi ride. Give me the walk anytime. The breakfast at the hotel is great with proper squeezed juices at no extra charge. The staff always smile and say hello and really can't do enough for you. We would stay at this hotel any day of the week it is wonderful and they go the extra mile. One last thing you even have a free safe in your room not that I can see there ever being an issue with this smashing hotel.

Made a return visit to the Timoulay for 2 weeks this time as I loved my week there last October. It was as lovely as ever with excellent service, food, rooms and pool area, an oasis in the centre of a lot of building work, which you'd never know about as it's lovely and quiet and the climate is fantastic of course. All the staff can't do enough for you and most of them remembered me from last year which made me feel very welcome, but it is a very welcoming hotel with a lovely atmosphere. The first week I met up with a great couple from Derbyshire (Faz & Benj) who made it a very special week, and also some lovely people the 2nd week so all in all, a great time again!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool area are the best.

On arrival we were offered mint tea whilst we checked in. A nice little touch. Rooms were spacious and spotless. All overlook the pool area. Service was fantastic. Food was really good and not repetitive as others have said. Pool area was also spotless and towels for the pool area are provided. We had two teenage girls with us and it was safe for them in the hotel and they were not leered at as has been the case in other places we have stayed. Reception staff are so helpful. The snack bar - if you can call it that as the tables are laid perfectly every lunchtime - serves reasonably priced burgers and pizzas as well as salads and grilled food. This hotel is set a bit further back than the larger hotels but that is good because it was a bit sheltered from the wind. Hotel is a five minute walk to the beach. The prom is a lovely walk. The town centre (such as it is) is about a ten minute stroll and has a small supermarket and loads of shops and places to eat and drink. You can get a taxi to the main supermarket and to the souk. There are two souks. One for souvenirs and one traditional for everything you can think of. The small red taxis are cheap and cheerful but you need strong nerves. All in all a fantastic week. Cannot fault this hotel and the staff were brilliant. We will definitely be back.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in August 2012. We found it to be excellent value.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms well appointed and a very good size. General decor in the hotel was nice and the spa was also very pleasant.

Food in the evenings was not that great but ok. The hotel did lack atmosphere in the evenings. Breakfast was nice though with lost of french pastries, strong coffee, fruit juices and an omelette bar.

We loved the pool area with the really comfy loungers. There were a few days when no kids were there and it was serene; on other days there were very noisy kids which ruined it a bit. I think Timoulay should be an adults only hotel really as the pool area is quite small and I just don't think there is enough for the kids to do. They would probably be better off at one of the many beach hotels.

Agadir itself can seem quite tacky, but when you get to the marina area there are some really nice restaurants and bars. This is quite far from the hotel, but taxis are easy to get and very cheap.

Overall, we loved our trip and would return to this hotel again.
