Amy Adejokun Section editor

Along the main drag, just opposite the beach, this apart-hotel provides basic accommodation for groups of between two and five people. Not especially attractive in terms of its décor or architecture, the Golden Beach does have a decent pool area and the common areas are clean, light and adorned with greenery. Its staff, however, leaves a lot to be desired and its pizzeria serves up pretty average fare. This is one to choose if you are looking for a relatively cheap option that is situated right in the mix of things in Agadir.

    Location 7.56 /10

    The Golden Beach Apart Hotel is situated at one end of the main drag of Agadir's seafront. The start of the row of shops, restaurants and bars is just a few minutes' walk away meaning that you are close, but not right in, the hubbub and animation. Access to the beach is via a path just across the main road so there is no need to take transportation there and back. The airport is around half an hour away by taxi and the one-way fare should come to 200MAD or thereabouts. Alternatively the hotel provides

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    There are three types of room offered at the Golden Beach: a studio, standard apartment and superior apartment. The basic guestroom can accommodate just two people and comprises either twin beds or one king as well as a seating area and a few pieces of furniture including bedside tables, coffee table and storage space. Some of the bathrooms in these standard rooms are actually bigger than in some of the larger rooms and have a tub with shower, a few toiletries and views of either the pool and the city or the sea. The balconies, which are large enough to relax on (although the furniture is pretty old) afford no privacy whatsoever as they are completely exposed and the public terrace is in full view of some. The apartments all have a fully equipped kitchenette, separate living spaces with either two or three sofa beds and balconies sea views. All rooms have air conditioning (rather noisy), telephone, colour televisions (some with flatscreen) and a safe. Note that we found the rooms to be poorly sound-proofed so if you are a light sleeper think twice before booking.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    From the outside the Golden Beach is somewhat of a monstrosity: a collection of balconies stuck to a building made up of various stones with a dark-looking supermarket on one side of the entrance and an unappetising pizzeria the other. Your opinion of the place probably will not change once you head inside into the eerie, roofless lobby which rises up past the galleries of guestroom corridors. A boring, dated décor adorns the hall which features niches of chesterfield sofas, equestrian paintings and a few potted trees. The staff behind the reception desk looked fed up on our visit and were slow to help.

    Far better to head outside to the generously-sized swimming pool surrounded by greenery but also by an unsightly wall. For much of the day the pool enjoys good exposure to the sun, although it dips behind the building in the late afternoon. If you want to extend your sunbathing session then you can always head up to the public terrace to catch those last few rays. One big disadvantage with sitting out at the pool is the noise coming from the nearby building site, although this of course will be finished at some point. As well as the main pool there is another, smaller, shallower one just for kids although no other entertainment for is provided for the little ones (or the big ones for that matter).

    Having no wellness or fitness facilities there is not much else in the way of public areas at the hotel aside from the corridors through which guests access their rooms. These are wide and light and finding your accommodation is pretty simple. Other amenities at the hotel include free wifi throughout as well as a business centre charged at 25MAD per hour.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    Being an apart-hotel, the Golden beach does not have a restaurant offering all three meals of the day in buffet form. Instead it has a pizzeria restaurant open for lunch and dinner, situated just off the lobby but with a street entrance too for non-guests. Like the hotel, the décor is nothing much to shout about and there is not much ambiance about the place. Serving salads, pizzas, pastas and a few other fish and meat dishes the food we found to be on the wrong side of average and the service pretty unremarkable - there are certainly better options about town for your main meal, especially when you see that some tables have dirty cloths and the music blaring out from the TV is unbearable.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    One of the plus sides of the Golden Beach is that the shore is just across the road. On the downside there is no reserved spot for guests of the hotel so you will have to bring your own towels etc. The beach itself though enjoys fine golden sand, calm waters and soft winds and there is nothing dangerous lurking in the waters to scare off kids. A little further along from the hotel you will find a host of places to shop and eat should you have a craving during the day.

    To know

    Being an apart-hotel, the Golden Beach does not provide meals as a matter of course but it does have a pizzeria on site (see 'Food and Drink'). For breakfast you can either buy supplies at the on-site supermarket and cook yourself in your apartment or choose from one of the local cafés. The hotel has just one room suitable for those guests in a wheelchair. The majority of guests here are French-speaking, however Brits are welcomed with open arms!

      One of just a select few hotels in Agadir that could justify its five stars (Moroccan stars that is), the Palais des Roses is a quality beachfront property suitable for couples, friends or families looking for a touch of luxury. Although it does not offer an animation programme, it is a full service hotel in every other sense with perhaps the biggest pull being its excellent thalassotherapy centre. It also boasts, however, beautiful public spaces and grounds, good eating options and spacious, well appointed rooms. With several unique features there are probably only a couple of better places to stay in Agadir.

      Another of the front row hotels, the Atlas is a reasonable option for couples or groups of friends. Although the huge, impersonal lobby and main building are pretty depressing, the rooms are a little better and the public spaces are pleasant enough. While the food here is not one of the hotel's strong points, bizarrely its wellness centre is. There is minimal animation for adults during the day and a small kids club just in case there are children around. Not the most stylish or inspiring of hotels, but a good value for the location.

      Despite being one of the hotels behind the first row of complexes along the coast, the Omega does not deserve to be put in the same bracket as its neighbours. Yes, the immediate vicinity is still largely made up of building sites and vast areas of rubble and wasteland, but the hotel itself is far more pleasant than those around it and enjoys several advantages such as the superior décor, more comfortable rooms, its night club and beach shuttle. It also has some rooms equipped with a kitchenette for those wishing to stay on a self-catering basis as well as family rooms suitable too for groups of friends. If the big boys on the seafront prove a bit too expensive, the Omega could be your solution.

      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.

      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.

      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!
