Just came back from Agadir in October, weather was reasonable around 25degrees after 11.00am the sun comes out. slightly breezy and chilly in evenings need a thick cardigan.
free towels in apartment and free blue towels near pool. plenty of sun beds . there was a childrens shallow pool and the main swimming pool was 1.15M deep; going to a depth of 1.8M at the deepest end.The water is pretty chilly but once you get in and swim then its ok in the sun.be careful and try to shower after a dip in the pool otherwise your white swimming costume will turn a yellowy green colour. the rooms and resturant only have expresso size cups, coffee is very strong. pizzas are pretty good about 60Dh (£5.00) for a vege pizza , chips are about £2.00 like McD fries med size portion, coke +soft drinks are about £1.00. pool music is old +repetative however the pool guy is quite fit.
food ordered near pool normally arrives within 20mins, where pizzas are foil wrapped to keep them warm. Loos near the pool are for both men +women (2 in total). pool is on the 1st floor. staff are friendly but mostly speak french or burber. they find english difficult to understand.
room has only 4 hangers , no tea towel. no hair dryer no mirror except in bathroom where lighting is poor, so for ladies makeup will be a problem. a clothes horse is provided to hang clothes but take your own pegs.take some mugs teabags, coffee, biscuits . supermarket (MARJANE) is close by about 5min drive or you could walk for 20mins. cab fare varies from 30Dh to a metered cab 9DH to supermarket. cabs cost more in evenings so negotiate price b4 getting in .
Breakfast is very repetative croissants, french bread, maderia cake, cofe/tea, orange juice with sugar!, butter, honey, jam 35Dh, or egg and yoghurt as well 40Dh. towels are normally collected 9.20am every morning and new ones are given later on in the afternoon so you may need to hold 1 towel back to use in the mean time, till new ones are delivered. bathroom has a bidet , rough toilet paper, shower area has no lighting. their complimentary shower gel and soap are pretty rubbish, so buy your own from the supermarket. the shop next to the hotel is very expensive, pringles £3.00 per can, icecreams over £2.00 each. we had a room facing back of hotel on 2nd floor 211 so a view of trees main road and parked cars. air conditioning makes alot of noise but was efficient. tv had mtv and an amercian news channel. 2 large sofas which have to be used as beds if you have a family. there were 2 sep single beds in the bedroom, with open plan features so no privacy between the bedroom and lounge area. if you cook in the apartment then clean up immediately after yourselves otherwise you will get an ant attack. liquor is fairley cheap in the supermarket £10.00 for a bottle of vodka. everything is written in french in the supermarket. the supermarket is like tesco hypermarket, selling kitchen white goods, toys, clothes, veg, meat , booze etc..al the fruit +veg have to be weighed +tagged with a price tag before going to the checkout. cabs are readily available outside, go for metered cab they are cheaper.
supermarket is open 7 days a week till late.2 electric plates are in the kitchen, a kettle, micro, fridge are also available. to use the safe you have to pay £2.50 per day or take a suitcase lock and put valuables in there. when checking in a 10Dh tax fee per head per day has to be paid. when converting sterling to dhiram at airport keep your reciept as changing back to sterling they require original reciept of how you paid and they always run out of sterling so they give you euros instead. Free wifi 10mg on 2nd floor. There is another hotel which is almost ready next door but work is very slow so not any dust or major noise going on. food can be ordered in room or pool area at no extra cost .
beautiful roses make a centre piece of reception area.
the sea was fairly choppy with strong waves , loos on beach have to be paid for, as do sunbeds.
