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
