We stayed at Hotel Timoulay for a week after spending three nights at a Riad in the centre of wonderful mad-Marrakech, and the difference was tangible!
The Timoulay is a 4* hotel that thoroughly deserves to be a 5*! I can only praise this hotel in everyway. The communal areas, rooms and spotlessly clean and well maintained, and all the staff are just fantastic.
The restaurant has a great selection of delicious, well cooked Moroccan (obviously!) styled food.
There's a good selection of wines and bottled beer, but i would say that the wines are Moroccan, and that some of the reds aren't to everyones taste.
The bar and lounge sitting areas are also comfortable, as are the patio areas.
I've noticed that on this site that a few people have mentioned that the pool water is a bit salty, maybe they didn't read the brochure correctly because it's quite clearly advertised as being a 'salt-water pool'. That doesn't mean it's just sea-water, it's cleaned and filtered and doesn't cause any of the burning-eye problems that often occure in over chlorinated pools.
Like everything else at Timoulay, the pool area was spotlessly clean and well kept.
We stayed mid June, out of high season and out of the school holiday period. There were plenty of free sun loungers and other pool side sitting areas available throught the day, and no-one was up at the crack of dawn setting their towels on the loungers, which was a very pleasant first!!
The beach is an easy walk from the hotel (less than 10 mins) and you can hire two loungers and parasol for 40Dh per day (£2.80).
Agadir beach is huge, 6Km in length. Hotel Timoulay is situated and the quieter south end. There are some bars and restaurants, but most of the bars are at the north end along with the Marina and harbour.
The corniche is well paved, and well maintained. It's also regularly patrolled by security from various hotels, and also by Police. It's a VERY safe area (as is Agadir in general) and is a lovely walk. Taxi's are easily available, and you can get pretty much anywhere in Agadir form the Timoulay for less than 20Dh (£1.40)
I really can't praise this hotel or its staff highly enough, and i'd be more than happy to recommend it highly.
Well Done Hotel Timoulay!!!
