“Returning again to the Hotel Kamal Agadir and not disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Well as you can see from my rating I really enjoy going to this hotel which I have been to for the last 10 years! The location is excellent for us as we love gallivanting in the city, up to the souks, the promenade etc. Rita and I are not "chickens"( as they say in Scotland) any more so it suits us to amble along speaking to all the restaurant folk, having a laugh, a coffee etc! Although we dont smoke or drink we still go through the money! Of course we were there for 4 weeks B&B only! Anyway, we still found the hotel to be very nice...reception area and small bar are tastefully furnished and in the small bar you can watch the soaps if you wish! There is a big TV in the reception lounge! Towels are changed daily with sheets about every 3 days....cleaning staff never stop. Reception staff are very helpful and its good that you can change money there....would recommend paying for the safe in your room....easy to operate and costs.about 10 dirhams per week.....as you need to watch your money when outside! Continental breakfast is ample and dining staff good! All in all nice small friendly hotel, very clean and good location but no entertainment in the winter anyway. We went to The Beach Club reception for dancing....quick steps etc and usually across to Ceasars Restaurant for a meal. It is really good and well priced.....often they have a singer and the moroccan people who go there are always very welcoming! We meet many friends from UK etc in Agadir so thats why we enjoy it so much. Forgot to mention the pool area which is always immaculate and Ahmed is very attentive!
There is a nice restaurant a long at the end of the promenade near the marina end called "La
Promenade" The manager Rachid is very welcoming.....very clean, well priced, good staff and nice food! Along from the Kamal to the right the restaurant Caverna has had a "make over" and so is nice for lunch or quick dinner....again good price. The Scampi next to the hotel is also good but dear. Tried the Indian restaurant on the sea front...."Bollywood" but was not enamoured and very dear! Was disappointed expected something exotic but all waiters Moroccan!! Didnt buy any nighties this time but got some lovely handbags, kaftans and lovely necklaces! Even the pierced earings could be converted to clips! Tablecloths ...linen...in the souk are a great buy with plenty of napkins...usually 12....great wedding presents which can be
nicely packaged.....But remember to bargain all the time! The souks are wonderful with all the
varied merchandise. The souk is more or less all floored now which make it easer for wheelchairs etc... definitely more spacious! Fruit and vegetables are great there also all the kitchen ware! Banks supermarkets are all near the Kamal and the pharmacy folk are all helpful.
I am going back next year for my usual month but in the meantime hope to go to Istanbul and Rome so will write more reviews. Forgot to mention as we cannot fly from Scotland to Morocco we flew from Manchester to Marrakech airport. Instead of staying overnight in Marrakech and taking the coach to Agadir the following day...about 102 dirhams pp we decided to hire a taxi at the airport to take us direct to Agadir. I booked clickexcursions.co.uk ...they were great....booking form was easy, admin excellent, answered all my queries and we only paid when we reached Agadir.....about £95 for the trip; you can pay in euros, dirhams or £. the trip takes about 4 hrs on the motorway but arriving quite late at night we thought it was wise!. The driver Houcine was excellent, stopping at a wee supermarkets for us to get some goodies! He spoke good English too and Ahmed in the office was great. Thought I had better let you know Sandy MacKay was my cat! Jeanette

Room Tip: Family Rooms opposite reception...nice and big with balcony which is a fare size. Just above the sw...

Stayed here for couple of days before heading into the anti-atlas after late flight from UK. The family room overlooking the pool was great value, and very clean. The pool was chilly but lovely and great for lane swimming, kept spotless by the helpful poolman. Breakfast is fine considering what you're paying and the staff were all very friendly.

My wife and I have just returned from a week's stay at the Kamal. Why TripAdvisor has awarded Agadir the "Destination of the Year" award, I don't know! The surrounding area (run in from the airport) is very industrialised and not a pretty site. Agadir itself is very busy with traffic, and you have to cross several major roads on your way to the beach (though if late in the morning, i.e. after 11 am, you can take the route through the Valley of the Birds which underpasses the biggest road).
The Kamal Hotel is a 1970's, dated construction offering very basic accommodation. We managed to secure a pool view (otherwise you will be overlooking a busy road), which made the nights and early mornings quieter.
Birdsong woke us each morning (which was pleasant) and the gardens offer a home to a variety of birds, some of which are not to be found in the UK.
Pool was cool, but suited the warm weather (circa 25 degrees) perfectly, providing a cooling dip midday. Pool terrace area was well maintained by the pool attendant/gardener who was happy to rush around fetching covers for the loungers as needed (well worth a tip).
The bar houses the only satellite TV (Eastenders, Corry, midweek football et al), the one in the bedroom only offering the BBC News channel, a EuroNews channel and one or two others (German, Italian and local).
Breakfast was simply fresh orange juice (sweetened), boiling water to accompany our own (PG Tips) teabags, fresh crusty baguette (both white and brown) and a couple of Pan au Chocolate, all served with jams, marmalade and butter.
This kept us going until lunchtime when a trip down the street 100 yards (right out of the entrance) brings you to Chiche Kabab for a very tasty shwarma, Panini, salad or burger. The Sawma supermarket is next door where you can buy a cold beer or a bottle of local wine.
A pleasant stay but nothing here would entice me to return to Agadir or this particular hotel.

Room Tip: Go for a pool view, its quieter.

Stayed for week in febuary to escape bristish weather.Decided to stay here cos we wanted somethin cheap and cheerful, hotel did not dissapoint, one of the cleanist hotels I have ever stayed in, yes rooms are very basic but we were comfortable enough, beds and towels changed everyday, not all rooms have balconys, when booking ask for pool view with balcony worth paying little extra, cant think of nothing worse than not having a balcony on holiday.Gets cold of night, take a jacket. Breakfast was bread and crossiants every day, next time i would book room only. Had nice sandwich from poolbar, handy if your planning to spend day sunbathing. Pool area spotless due to the great work of the pool man, very friendly guy who works his socks off, soon has he spotted us sunloungers were wiped down ready for us. Pool was freezzing cold, could not go in, shame really has even in febuary weather was scorching. Beach area lovely, restuarants by beach a little expensive your best staying around hotel area for food, some nice traditional places, go and explore. If you cross over from hotel to your left then do a first right walk a few hundred yards loads of nice places to eat.Safe in room, chargable .Wifi in reception, nice place to chill out. Loads of taxis about, always agree a price first, ask at hotel if not sure. All in all we had a pleasant stay, this is not 5star and does not pretend to be, was clean, very central, staff lovely, I would go back to this hotel If visiting morocco. One more thing, always check your change when outside hotel, tried to rip us off afew times.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have balconys, request pool view is a must !!!

Staff was helpful and pleasant. I stayed only 1 night. The bathroom was clean and there was plenty of hot water. Wifi is available in lobby only. My room did smell a bit like cigarette smoke.
It is a fine place to stay although I thought it was a little expensive for what was provided. It is a great location, about a 10 minute walk to the beach.

We spent 1 night at the Kamal as part of a cycle tour. It is comfortable enough, without having any particularly notable features. Welcome was fine, room was comfortable and the breakfast was standard fare. The location is reasonably good, it is a pleasant 10 minutes walk to the Corniche. I would probably describe the Kamal as a functional stopover type hotel.
