“Quality you will find hard to beat, just outside of Fes”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in March. We were very lucky and had great weather. We only ate 1 meal at the restaurant but it was very good and we regretted not eating there the last night. I have never been served breakfast at 0430 so I can make my flight. Pancakes (reheated but still! ) cake, tea, coffee, hot milk and the night porter there to look after us. Room are large and simple but clean and nice. The reception could not be more helpful but beware this is Morocco and very few people are fluent in English, we speak French so got along OK but he was still very patient with my rusty language skills. If you only speak English you may have to think about a good phrase book. You will need a car to get to the city from here but it is worth it for the calm and space.

When we got here at night, we wondered "Why is this place so away from the center?" But next morning, we understood this place has a great view of calm, quiet beauty of the Middle Atlas. Yes, Fes is surrounded by the great nature and you'll not see it from the medina or city center. The room is huge, the bathroom is clean. The people are so nice and polite. I would stay here a whole week if I could.

We were there last weekend for two nights, booked a triple room and a double one, and made our trip shorter.
The hotel is located far away from the city center and the medina but that wasn’t a problem as we had a car. The area is very calm but there are no restaurants nearby. The rooms were clean and VERY big, I was surprised with the extra space around, but the furnitures and the bathrooms were really basic and there was no phone in the room, so in case you need anything you had to walk to the reception ! Breakfast was fine, nothing extravagant, but basic needs were met.
Now what impressed me in the hotel was the extremely sympathetic and helpful stuff. They all were really nice to all hotel guests, for example, we had to shorten our stay and they didn’t charge us a penny, some other guests over breakfast came 15min after they closed, they still brought them food from the kitchen..etc.
Now the reason why i graded this hotel as average is because of two main resaons : first the curtains dont make enough dark in the room so you’ll eventually wake up when the birds do, and second, on that hot day an extremely awful smell woke us up, it made us all feel like throwing up and when we asked they said that it was because of the dump (yeah that open ground outside the town where the city's rubbish is left), actually it was quite far but when the hot wind blew it brought the smell to the hotel… !
To be honest i wouldn’t go back there unless it’s winter and they change the curtains to something more sophisticated so that only my alarm will have the power to wake me up.

DURING our 2-week trip to Morocco (with a rented car AND more than 2700 kms at the end) we decided to keep Fes as our "base camp", leaving every morning to visit either one of the Imperial Cities or some other interesting place (such as Volubilis, Sefrou etc).
Choosing Villa Agapanthe has been one of the most rewarding decision we made.
Conveniently placed far from the town center (but still in the urban area, thus allowing travellers without car to use the cheaper minitaxis), Villa Agapanthe is a LUXURY hotel disguised as a simple 3-star.
Service is excellent, rooms are spacious to say the least, breakfast will leave you bloated for all the day, swimming pool is nice and clean, and should you decide to have dinner there, prepare yourself for a gourmet restaurant experience.
The hotel offers free parking inside its fences, silence reigns from dusk till dawn, so sleeping with your windows open will add pleasure to pleasure.
The kindness of the staff is sometimes "embarassing", and you will enjoy every moment of your stay.

I was 100% satisfied by my stay at the villa agapanthe, i would absolutely recommend it to everyone, the diner is outstanding! typical morrocan food at its best, local wines available, the staff is very friendly and helpful, they care and will do everything to help you.
The rooms are modern and clean, the swimming pool is beautiful and very calm, located just a few minutes away by taxi to the center and the airport, you can also enjoy a walk/run in the country side just behind the villa. I would book again in a blink of an eye.

The only negative I have for this hotel is that we were only able to use it as a stop off so no real chance to make use of the facilities. Would highly recommend for a long stay. It's a little bit off the beaten track which has it's advantages and disadvantages.

It’s very very difficult to review this hotel. It is lovely, the pool is great the rooms and bathrooms are lovely and very nicely done. (modern lines with Moroccan theme). The staff are lovely and helpful, and friendly. The only real drawback is the location... and its big issue. It REALLY is a long way out of town off the main road and at the end of a half mile long dirt track. You are NOT going to be able to walk into town. We had a car and it took sometime to find the hotel (We knocked on a number of the houses along the track). The problem with the location is that you either drive into Fez with your car, and suffer all the parking problems there or you take a taxi and have problems getting back i.e explaining where you want to go.

My suggestion to the owners… given that the hotel is at the end of the track....provide a courtesy car service to and from the Median and/or the airport.
