“Awful location!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Location location location Location location location Location location location!!!!

It’s very very difficult to review this hotel. It is lovely, the pool is great the rooms and bathrooms are lovely and very nicely done. (modern lines with Moroccan theme). The staff are lovely and helpful, and friendly. The only real drawback is the location... and its big issue. It REALLY is a long way out of town off the main road and at the end of a half mile long dirt track. You are NOT going to be able to walk into town. We had a car and it took sometime to find the hotel (We knocked on a number of the houses along the track). The problem with the location is that you either drive into Fez with your car, and suffer all the parking problems there or you take a taxi and have problems getting back i.e explaining where you want to go.

My suggestion to the owners… given that the hotel is at the end of the track....provide a courtesy car service to and from the Median and/or the airport.

We stayed there for two nights wille visiting Fes. It's just outside of the city so you have the view on the mountain landscape and without the business of the city around you. Great pool and rooms. Only disadvantage was that there were no fridges in the rooms, which would have been very welcome with the hot weather in the summer for keeping cold drinks and babyfood in.

lunch and dinner have to be reserved ahead that day, so unfortunately if you arrived at the hotel with a hunger late at night you couldn't just hop in for a little snack, with no other restaurants or snack nearby.

Overall very clean rooms and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first level. Ground floor also has windows on the pool side but less private w...

We were very surprised to read all the good reviews of villa agapanthe following our stay there a few days ago. However having read them I agree a lot of the comments are true. It is in a nice setting, the pool was good, rooms nice and staff helpful.

This being said it had one major draw back. Villa Agapanthe is located on the very edge of the areas petit taxis are allowed to operate in so getting a taxi from the hotel is not a problem but getting one to take you back is. They don't know the address and even when it's explained they will not take you. Both times we attempted to get a taxi from town back to the villa it took over 45mins and we had to ask around 30 drivers before we found one who would take us. Further to this it is located at the end of a long dirt track off a motorway, which we did not feel comfortable walking through even during the day because of the 20+ street dogs two minutes from the gate.

If you have a car this is a good place to stay, otherwise dont stay here if you plan to leave the hotel. From a female travellers perspective I did not feel safe travelling back to the hotel at night, even with my boyfriend in the cab.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed pretty nice

I really enjoy my 2 nights stay at Villa Agapanthe! The room was very confortable and cosy with a very elegant mix of tradition and contemporary style, as well as the lobby (with working fireplace), the bar and the restaurant, were excellent meals and breakfast are served. The owners who manage the Villa personally with the support of good staff take care of their guests and make you fell welcome anytime.
Definitely a great stay, and a place to come back for a quick stop-over in Fes, a dedicated week-end or a longer relaxing stay.
Definitely excellent value: recommended!
