You can tell just from looking at the exterior of the hotel that not only is the Royal Atlas one of the better properties in Agadir but that it prides itself on service, appearance and presentation. The long welcome hall is one of the best introductions to any hotel we saw with stylish, contemporary art and furniture married with traditional works and décor such as the hefty wooden plant pots and the intricate tables, chairs and lamps. Not only is the space bright and spotless, but there is a great ocean view out back with the beautiful gardens and pool in the foreground. If you look down from the balcony at the back of the hall you will see the smart lobby bar with its leitmotiv orange and brown colour scheme, each table with its small vase of flowers. Leading off from the lobby are lengthly, wide corridors with a funky carpet and more art and impressive pieces of furniture.
The heart of the hotel is its gorgeous swimming pool area with a semi-circular pool complete with palm tree islands, impeccably kept gardens and heaps of space in which to relax and sunbathe on the good quality loungers of which there are plenty for everyone. With good exposure and an absolutely peaceful atmosphere this is one of the most pleasant pool areas of any hotel. And what's more, there is a direct access to the beach! Between the hours of 10am and 6pm the pool's snack bar serves beverages and snacks while throughout the day the animation team makes sure that no one gets bored by staging a host of activities such as ping pong, dance and aquagym and they also look after children during the day whilst mum and dad have some time to themselves. Then, in the evening, a show, such as oriental dance, is put on for guests before it is time for a last few drinks in the reposed setting of the hotel at night.
Wherever you are in the hotel you will find it to be clean, tidy and well maintained with staff being especially friendly and helpful at all times. Despite there being an animation programme, an air of calm seems to reign over the place at most times and there is something more sophisticated about this hotel than most others. The hotel has both a wifi network (fee applicable) and a futuristic-looking cyber café.
