I first went to the Igoudar Apartments in 2002 during the 9/11crisis. I had a fabulous holiday. First impressions were very good....I entered late at night into a lofty reception and was handed my keys promptly...I was shown up the steps past the pool to a small typically Moroccan apartment. It was clean and basic and colourful..it had beautiful shuttered windows overlooking the pool and was quiet dispite being nearly full. Next day I had a tasty typically Moroccan breakfast of bread and local honey and anything else I fancied from the fruit and cheese provided. The pool was clean and there were umbrellas around the pool as well as a mini restaurant.
Agadir itself is a pretty resort...the Igoudar is on the next street from the main strip of restaurants and bars. Ideally situated really as you are close but not too close to the nightime buzz....I travelled a lot during my first trip there...trips are available locally to Essaouira and Taroudant but you can actually get the local buses now far more cheaply and go independently...both places are beautiful. Its also possible to travel to Marrakesh by bus both on a tour and independently. I really enjoy Morocco and the people are wonderful...warm, friendly and being Muslim they are respectful of themselves and tourists...they don't tolerate fighting or arguing so it is a safe destination...it doesn't attract the mad party crowds. We have been to other destinations in Morocco however the real test is wheither I would go back...and we are going back to the Igoudar again in September...the resort has modernised a lot since we were last there as the new Marina is now built...so I am looking forward to seeing the changes...and will update after the trip.
If you want to budget a trip and spend money on the wonderful crafts and food...this is a great choice...purse friendly and gives value for the little it costs...if you want a luxurious holiday ...this is not it...but we had a great time there and had fun bantering and bartering with the stalls that visited on the premises a couple of times a week...where else would someone offer to buy you for a couple of camels...lol...
