This hotel has a spot close to the beach and comes with a handful of à la carte restaurants.
This big hotel is surrounded by manicured gardens, but has a great setting just off one of Agadir’s main streets. And it’s only a 5-minute walk from the beach, where the hotel has its own section.
Traditional whitewashed buildings and mosaic tiles give the place an authentic Moroccan feel. And you get the run of the hotel next door, so there are 3 pools in total.

Relaxing Easter sunshine break
Had a lovely relaxing break here over Easter. Room was adequate size for a family of 4, comfy beds cleaned every day. The cleanliness of the whole complex was excellent. Standard all inclusive buffet style restaurant, no-one ever went hungry - as long as you are open to try things! Actually thought the main restaurant was better than the bookable a lacartes! We were able to book the ala cartes for the whole week not just on the day we planned to visit as we had previously been told, the menu of the day didnt change while we were there. It was nice being waited on and as a party of 8 to all sit together but the actual food wasn't the best... White wine extermely drinkable! Snack bar was good but formal - no free ice cream available anywhere. Activities - you could get as involved as you wanted to with no pressure - kids joined in everything but I wasnt hassled when I just wanted to sunbathe and read my book! Good variety of stalls/shops around the complex - got some great bargains. Beach just a couple of minutes walk away - lovely. Large complex with lots of steps so wouldnt be suitable for less able. Over all we had a very relaxing break, would go again if the price was right - think it would be too busy peak July/August though.More

This was an early package holiday break to get some warm weather , the transfer time from the airport was reasonable (40 min) . The room was adequate a bit dated could do with brightening up a bit but as we only wash and sleep there not to bothered . It was cleaned regularly The restaurant ok the meals were alright with reasonable choice bit disappointed with breakfast continental breakfast is ok but little choice of fillings for rolls could get omelette or fried eggs cooked The first choice rep (a local man) was excellent very attentive with good local knowledge, restaurant were also excellent remembered you and very attentive bar staff and cleaners were also very good the animation were always around with activities and shows in the evening very attentive with the children The grounds were nice and well kept always saw gardeners around working . the beach is a 5min walk away but this seems the norm with a small private part sectioned off for the hotel and a 5k promenadeMore

Don't be put off :)
So like a lot of people i saw some of the less favourable reviews prior to travelling out and was a little apprehensive but rest assured following some of the advice in other reviews and this you can really get the most out of the hotel. I'll break the holiday down into sections for ease. ARRIVAL Be sure to complete your embarkation forms on the plane ready for passport control, as mentioned in other reviews speed is not in the vocabulary here and you will have a reasonably long wait (depending on who's on passport control which i'll touch on again later) Other than that Agadir is a small airport and once through passport control you're out and into the sun. THE HOTEL The hotel is set in it's own little turn off of a main street, upon arrival you will need to fill in an arrival form (not to dissimilar from the one you completed on the plane, it appears they love a form do the Moroccans) At this point you will need to pay the local tax (14 dirhams per person per day - basically Â£1 a day) The reception itself was fairly quick to get through with porters keen to take your luggage to your room the first of our tips, as mentioned tipping certainly has benefits but is by no means expected, generally we kept this to about 20 dirhams per time (Â£1,40 roughly.) THE ROOMS we were offered rooms on the first floor of the main building (1023) which whilst ok did not have a balcony and there was the smell of sewage on the landing area. Given this along with having a number of stairs not ideal for one member of our group we politely asked to be moved. The hotel managed to accomdate this request and we moved into one of the blocks near the main pool (2203), this was a lot better offering a balcony and no sewage smells. Rooms in these blocks are near the main pools and there is noise at night but this ends promptly at midnight so was only an issue on one occasion due to us having an early start the next day, bear this in mind if you intend to be asleep prior to 12 each night. Rooms are fairly basic and differ slightly it seems, one of our group had an air con unit in our original rooms and a fridge in another, both of these were missing when we switched rooms. The rooms are a bit dated perhaps but have that you may need, good showers, cleaned daily and a tv (we were able to get 3 English channels in the main block and 2 in the blocks around the pool, notably MBC2 which had English movies on daily and Sky News) THE FOOD The food is not too bad albeit a bit repetitive, and not the most inspiring or best buffet meals i've had at a restaurant, however is perfectly edible and considering the star rating of the hotel is of a decent standard on some days. Highlights for us included a fresh 8ft Tuna, seafood paella, meatballs, spicy fish balls, stir fry, and numerous tagines. Sadly the buffet restaurant doesn't do theme nights which tends to be why the menu is fairly similar on a lot of occasions. For children there was always pasta and bolognaise along with chips, potatoes and on one occasion mash and shepards pie (which was delicious actually!). The food in the a la carte restaurants were of a better standard, the steak house isn't bad and the sauce used on the steak was lovely, the Japanese Accent was ok but not worth a visit if you like us only have a week, the Moroccan was unsurprisingly the best of the bunch and if you only had the chance to go to one i would highly recommend this, our whole group enjoyed it. Tipping in the buffet was again 20 dirhams, and we generally left this for dinners, or occasionally breakfasts if we had good service, we found we would generally have a table waiting for us, or would swiftly be found one (which did lead to one family being moved - oops) We also had all our drinks brought to us. Again you can not tip and do this all yourself there is no need to tip if you don't wish. Staff throughout our stay in the restaurants were obviously appreciative of our tips but the interaction with them did not feel forced or only due to this, and we made a number of friends with the staff, primarily with Hicham, who served us regularly and would chat with us in between seating other guests. Also at breakfast be sure to try the Omelettes if you like them you'll love the ones knocked up by the chef, dont worry about a queue he bangs them out so quickly you won't be waiting long and if you have these daily generally by the 3rd day he knows what you want and knocks it up as soon as he sees you! THE WEATHER The weather when we went was perfect, between 25-30 in the day, however on a number of mornings the light haze / cloud didn't burn away until about mid day however the 5-6 hours of sun after this definitely made up for it. The evenings during this time of the year (April/May) meant the evenings were chilly, more so when there was a breeze and a warm / long sleeve top of some kind is definitely recommended. We generally got by with factor 20 (P20) and found this to be suitable, but we were advised in summer the temperatures can top 40 so bear this in mind if you are travelling in the summer months. LOCALS AND TRIPS The locals are generally friendly and on our little walk around the roads near the resort and on trips we never felt scared or threatened, shop keepers will try get you to look at their wares or enter their shops, but a polite no thank you sometimes twice always did the trick. We never felt like we had to enter a shop and were never pulled into them. With regards to bartering some are more keen than others, we managed to barter in one of the local shops for souvenirs while another shop were not so keen so try, the worse they can say is no (and we managed to get a third off one item and probably could have bartered harder but were not in the mood) Hicham advised offering about 1/3rd of the price and looking to agree at about half of what the seller tells you is the initial price. Generally if you see something you like you'll be able to find it at another nearby store if the seller doesn't wish to barter. With regards to trips we went on a few including a local tour of Agadir and the evening Berber meal/ experience (which was called Fantasia at our hotel but other operators may give it another name) This was certainly worth the money - roughly Â£30 including travel, 5 course meal and great entertainment throughout the night including acrobats, african bands, berber horsemen and fire jugglers to name a few. DEPARTURE Hotel check out is at 12, however you can request a late check out for 300 Dirhams (about Â£22) which allows you to stay in your room until 6pm. If you do check out at 12 you will have your wristband removed but be given a token for meals and drinks until you are picked up (although we were never asked to show this on our last day - probably due to all the staff knowing us!) At the airport you again need to complete the same form you filled in on the plane out - be sure to do this before passport control or you will need to join the back of the queues again. Queuing here was long and tedious, be sure to watch line speeds as some staff are a lot slower than others, in particular a gentleman who appeared to have a darker complexion than the other officers and looked potentially like a younger Morgan Freeman. Try your best to avoid him he is by far the slowest!! OVERALL Overall we had nothing to fault, we were cared for and looked after at the hotel, our requests were fulfilled and staff were friendly and attentive. The food was more than edible and apart from the repetitive nature of some of the dishes as generally good. We would be more than happy to stay at the hotel again based on this visit.More

A very disappointing place
I was very disappointed by this hotel. The food quality was poor and lacked variety. At the start of our week they often ran out of dishes with over an hour of service left to go and the hotel was not full. The hot food was often tepid because of having to trek across the dining room from one station to another to get what you wanted. There was little variety and the deserts were appalling- usually a layer of pastry with jam on! There was little or no fresh fruit, no cream of any description and no ice cream at all. In the one speciality restaurant we went to, the tuna salad starter contained less than a teaspoon of tuna and the pizza was from a supermarket. The soft drinks were all sugary pop with no diet sodas and the variety of alcohol for adults in the evening was wine, beer or a cheap spirit with nothing much to put in it. In the pool bar there was a disco for children which finished at 10pm. At 10-30 the adult entertainment began thee- the same disco for another hour. In the main bar there was no music, no entertainment, no atmosphere- nothing. In the main bar the drinks were served in plastic glasses and in the pool bar in paper cups which is disgraceful for adults. The toilet facilities in all public areas, including the restaurant, were dirty and wet. The flushes didn't work, there was soiled toilet paper left on the floor , the pans were dirty and the doors did not lock. In one toilet it was pitch black in the middle of the day with no light to see by. In our room when we arrived, the heater was switched on and a rug had been left over the top of it. I switched it off and there were sparks of electricity coming out of it. We did not use it again. The room was a ground floor one and the patio doors were very insecure and could have been easily forced but, happily were not. We had to pay for a safe key- the first time in an all-inclusive resort where these are usually free. There was no hairdryer in the room so I had to hire one- again this is supposed to be all inclusive and I would have expected one.The toilet in our room leaked from time to time and was not properly fixed to the floor. The pool areas were quite nice with plenty of sunbeds but the parasols were all a bit old and in dire need of refurbishment.More
