Hotel Agyad Maroc Hotel 3 star
Easyexperts
Cité founty 80000 Agadir, Morocco
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Agyad is, we are sorry to say, a member of that group of hotels found just behind the first row of properties along the Agadir coastline which are run down, depressing and soulless. The place is literally surrounded by rumbled filled wastelands and building sites and there is nothing of interest anywhere close to the hotel. The apartments are spacious and some have good views but they are in poor condition and in some cases dirty with loose wires hanging out from the walls. There is little in the way of animation, although this is perhaps to be expected from an aparthotel and the restaurant looks thoroughly unappetising. Unless you are really skint or all other rooms in the city have gone, steer clear.

    Location 7.03 /10

    Situated behind the first row of hotels directly on the beach, the Agyad is slightly up the hill from the coast in the middle of several building sites and looks onto a vast piece of land presumably waiting to be built upon. There is zero in the way of shops, restaurants or bars in the immediate vicinity of the hotel and the beach is a fifteen-minute walk away. A taxi ride from the airport will take around thirty minutes and cost in the region of 200MAD.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    54 apartments, studios and suites make up the inventory at the Agyad, accommodating anything from two to six people. There are two styles of room available: European and Berber, although the difference between the two comes down simply to the colour of the curtains and a slight difference in the furniture design. All rooms are equipped with a kitchenette (some of whose portable gas hobs look rather unclean) as well as a terrace or balcony. Depending on capacity of the room, the accommodations will feature a master bedroom and then possibly a second twin room and a couple of fold-out beds in the living area. The rooms are pretty bare, with the odd coffee table and/or plastic table and chairs dotted around although there is some attempt to jolly things up with small paintings hung crookedly on the walls. Amenities include a telephone, colour television and refrigerator. The fully equipped kitchenettes are a nice idea for those wishing to self-cater, however it is a long walk to the nearest supermarket to buy supplies to cook! The bathrooms are just as basic and in some cases in poor condition with peeling paint and worn surfaces. The worst thing about the WC though is the hideous towel art scattered with petals! One plus side of the rooms facing the sea is the view. Although the surrounding wastelands occupy the foreground, you can still get a clear sight of the Atlantic and the hill to the east.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The two lions guarding the entrance to the Agyad give a far grander impression of the hotel than is the case. For the most part the lobby is dark and particularly frightful although there are some aspects, such as the typical Moroccan furniture, rugs and tiling, which help to save the space from utter disaster. At its centre is a modern, neon-lit lift which was clearly installed to help modernise things but actually looks utterly out of place. Behind the reception desk on our visit was a shy, hesitant gentleman who really did not seem to grasp the whole hospitality idea.

    The hotel's swimming pool has just as grim surroundings with an unsightly wall wrapped around it on two sides and a badly kept poolside. Exposure is not fantastic due to the close proximity of the accommodation building while the murals on the wall next to the kid's pool are so worn out by the sun that much of their colour has been sapped away. In terms of animation, someone is available to come to the hotel upon request to entertain the kids but this is not done as a matter of course. For adults, there is music and dancing in the hotel's piano bar each night until the early hours.

    Access to the rooms is straightforward although the corridors, which give onto the exterior of the building, are badly kept. The public areas have absolutely no ambiance and we feel that you will be wanting to spend as much time away from the hotel as you can!

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    Most of the people coming to stay at the Agyad do so on a room only basis. However, should you wish to dine at the hotel you can, at one of two restaurants: the main one adjacent to the pool and in the piano bar in the evening. Each has their own menu with the former offering mainly tajines, but also various fish and meat dishes as well as salads, soups and pastas, while the latter's menu is more of a grill with an almost exclusively meat offering. In some cases there is a buffet, often themed, in the main restaurant and this runs on a fifteen-day cycle so if you do stay here in an all-inclusive basis then you will not be eating the same thing twice (or perhaps once, given the look of the à la carte menus!). The piano bar hosts live music some nights as well as other types of entertainment upon demand.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The fine sand, safe and calm beach along the Agadir coastline is a fair walk from the Agyad so you might want to head down there early in the morning before it gets too hot or take a taxi if setting off later in the day. The hotel does not offer its guests a private section of beach, however there is plenty of space for everyone so do not panic! There are several providers of water sports activities around the beach and town centre if you fancy some adventure, while the choice of places to eat and drink along the front is considerable.

    To know

    The Agyad is an aparthotel so most of the people staying here do not take their meals here, hiring the apartment by itself and eating either at the hotel for an extra charge or heading down to the tourist centre. There are currently no wellness or fitness facilities although this is in the pipeline.

      There is no doubt that the Atlantic Palace is one of only a handful of hotels in Agadir to be truly of an international standard. Of an impressive scale, the hotel boasts smart, spacious rooms and suites, well kept and pleasant public spaces, a wellness centre worthy of the name and a good choice of quality eating concessions. The décor and design is head and shoulders above most other properties as is the staff and of course the location, being situated just across the road from the beachfront. Whether travelling as a couple, family or group of friends, if it is quality you are after then few places can top the Atlantic Palace - it should definitely be in your short list.

      The Tafoukt, (the Berber sun), is a very pleasant hotel club offering all-inclusive service, located on the seafront and close to the bustle of the city. The quality of almost all of the rooms that have been renovated is worth noting, as well as the designer decor of several common areas. Of a human size, the club will be particularly suitable for those who enjoy basking in the sun and lively nightlife.

      A club hotel par excellence, the Almoggar is a large full-service family hotel right on the Agadir beachfront. The rooms are apartment-like in style and are basic but functional while the large public areas are pleasant to be in. There is a full animation programme for both adults and kids and thanks to its height there are some good oceans views to be had from the hotel. Food is not one of the strong points at the Almoggar but given the hotel's rates this should not be a surprise. We are sure though that children will enjoy their stay here which will in turn please the parents!

      The Adrar Hotel is an ageing structure without the slightest pretension. However, as a guest you will feel at home here. The good will of the staff probably plays an important role in this. The rooms have all been renovated, and really stand out thanks to their bright colours. Touches of very kitsch decoration give the hotel a unique and unusual character.

      Without a doubt the best of the second row of hotels in Agadir, the Timoulay is a very pleasant hotel indeed, suitable for couples, small families or even groups of friends looking for value for money but not necessarily worried about being right on the beach. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed, the décor is in good taste, the food is reasonable, the staff personable and the spa, unlike so many of its neighbours', actually resembles a spa. The hotel is also fairly quiet and intimate and is a place that one may well choose to relax in rather than head out to the beach or the town. The Timoulay certainly gets our seal of approval!

      A small, homely hotel in the town centre of Agadir, the Aferni has something charming about it despite being basic and dated. It lacks the services and entertainment of the larger complexes closer to the coast but if you are looking for a quieter place to stay during your time here then this could be an option. The rooms are fairly bare but may have large bathrooms while it also has a quiet pool area and restaurant and is clean and well kept for the most part. Do not expect grand service and extra touches here and there, but if you want a simple, tranquil place for a night or two then the Aferni is to be considered.

      On the fourth floor of the Sud Bahia hotel there are a series of drawings along the corridor. One of them depicts a young Moroccan girl with tears rolling down her face. And quite frankly after having seen this hotel, we fully understand why. Dated, tired and thoroughly depressing, it looks as though nothing has changed here in about thirty years. The lobby of the property tells you everything you need to know. Not only is it a good hike from the beach, but it has poor facilities, balconies so small that you could not relax on them and little to no atmosphere. It is the type of place that you check into when you turn up to a place without a reservation and you have had no luck with any of the other places in town. One to be avoided if at all possible.

      The Tildi is an unexceptional family property located in a no man's land part of the resort of Agadir. While the rooms are in decent condition they are pretty uninspiring as are the common areas of the hotel. The most attractive part of the hotel is arguably its swimming pool which is well exposed and enjoys pleasant surroundings. The hotel does have a spa but it is nothing to write home about which is also true for the food, which we found to be extremely mediocre. Not a million miles from the beach and with some soft animation (games, activities, competitions etc), the Tildi might suit a family or couple on a budget who don't feel the need to be at the centre of the action in the town.

      This is by far and away the best hotel in Agadir. It is the only world class property in the resort and it beats every other hotel hands down in pretty much every way, from the design to the service and from the dining to the wellness facilities. Its beachfront location, away from the tacky tourist centre of Agadir, makes it the only place to consider for a truly relaxing luxury holiday. One could reproach the hotel for the size of its standard rooms, but they are immaculately appointed and both comfortable and functional. Also perfect are the hotel's grounds and public spaces which means that you probably will not have the remotest desire t to leave this heavenly complex. Although children are welcome at the Sofitel Agadir Thalassa Sea and Spa, the property is more suited for couples.

      The older of the two Sofitels in Agadir, the Royalbay is, together with its sister hotel, head and shoulders above all other hotels in the resort in pretty well every aspect. With the exception of the newer of the pair of French properties, the Royalbay's architecture and design is unparalleled as is the standard of the service, food and facilities. The guestrooms are spacious and extremely well appointed, the public spaces are impeccably maintained and you will not find a smarter kids club anywhere. As well as enjoying a beachfront location the hotel also boasts a quiet spot along the bay, away from the chaos of the tourist centre. The one thing we were surprised about is the lack of privacy on the terraces and balconies of the rooms, especially the most expensive.
