This is about my 12th time at the Hotel Kamal! I like it because its small and central.You meet a lot of old friends, its very very clean and well run!. Staff as always are helpful, friendly and courteous. Travelling alone this time didnt bother me as I was made to feel very welcome indeed!
The reception area is lovely, having been recently refurbished, the pool immaculate, and the dining room very pleasant for your evening meal. Towels are changed daily and linen at least 2 a week. Although I was B&B there are plenty cafe/restaurants nearby. If its just a snack the cafe Verandha is good value, the restaurant Caverna is not too bad and Restuarant Scampi is good but pricey! Of course The Kamal restuarant offers good value and the poolside snack area is very pleasant indeed and service good.
There is no entertainment in the hotel but if you like dancing ....quicksteps etc or just to get out take a taxi to the reception Hotel Beach Club where there is a group singing 50s, 60s 70s etc.
The atmosphere is friendly and you meets lots of nice people. Drink is not badly priced! If after your dancing and you want a late night, walk across to the Restuarant Ceasar....food and service good and usually a regular singer.....atmosphere mainly Moroccan but good fun! Going home about 2am the taxi shouldnt be more than 30 dirhams. Out of 28 nights I went 21! Was shattered!!
Taxis are now subsidized by the government..so a town centre trip should be about 5 to 6 dirhams...certainly not more than 10 dirhams. Always check the meter is on and take the taxi no. The souks are great fun but be prepared to relax, laugh and smile! Tablecloths are great value especially the hand embroidered linen...good for wedding presents and ladies the nighties in the souk are super.. long with sleeves...good for the hot water bottle and well priced! Note I am female!! Sandy Mackay is my cat! Take your hot water bottle with you especially in January/February......its about 65 degrees then!!
If flying into Marrakech there is a good bus service to Agadir...but reserve your seat at the Supratours bus station or the CTM Bus station. Single fare is about 100dhs. The journey time on the new motorway is about 3.50 hrs to Agadir bus station where you can get a taxi to the Kamal....watch the price! about 30 dirhams. When out in Feb exchange rate was about 13dhs to the £ Sterling. Needless to say I return again to the Hotel Kamal in February 2013 for 4 weeks!!
