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.

    Location 7.44 /10

    Set back from the sea front up the hill amongst a few other nondescript hotels, the Omega is around a ten minute walk from the beach. The environs of the hotel leave much to be desired with many a building site and empty plot of land making them pretty unsightly. Walking to the tourist centre, with its shops, restaurants and bars, may be a fifteen or more minute walk so consider taking a cab, especially in high temperatures. The airport is around half an hour away by taxi and the ride should cost in the region of 200MAD.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The overwhelming majority of the rooms at the Omega are standard ones while the remaining ten or so are family rooms with a separate twin bedroom. All the basic guestrooms are appointed in a similar fashion with carpeted floors, a small seating corner whose couches can be transformed into spare beds and twin beds (some rooms do have double beds) dressed in white linens and matching velour plaids and cushions. There is plenty of closet space and you will find a safe there within, although there is a 90MAD deposit payable for its use. Some of the rooms are more spacious than others to ask for a larger room if this is a priority. Other amenities in the room include a telephone, flatscreen television and an effort has also been made with some paintings depicting typical Moroccan market scenes. The bathrooms are of a decent size and nicely tiled in blue and white. They are in excellent condition and very clean and feature both personalised toiletries and towels as well as bathtubs and a hairdryer. A few of the standard rooms also have a balcony although they are pretty small and have no furniture on them. The larger family rooms have, as well as the second twin bedroom, a kitchenette which can be fully equipped if necessary for those wishing to do their own cooking. Remember though that the nearest supermarket of any type is quite a walk away, especially in the heat. All rooms are smoking.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    You will notice the Omega before all the other hotels in the zone simply because it is the only one with a tad of colour on its exterior! The entrance too also differentiates itself a little from its neighbours with a pretty marble staircase and typical tiling adorning the columns. More of the same can be found inside in the octagonal lobby which culminates several floors up with a glass dome crowning the galleries below. To the left is the dark wood reception desk which is a little out of sync with the rest of the décor but behind which you will find a helpful and cheery staff. The lift at the back of the lobby will take you to your floor while the corridors are easily negotiable and in good condition.

    Outside, the hotel's swimming pool, which does seem a little small for a hotel that can accommodate close to 200 people, is surrounded by a rather unattractive stone wall in whose corner is a water feature. There is not much space around the pool, although just higher up is a terrace with sun loungers and parasols as well as a few tables and chairs where guests can enjoy snacks from the pool bar. The view is not fantastic given the foreground of building works, although you can see the sea. Also on the terrace is a large tent, known as a kheima where it is possible to smoke shisha and watch the flatscreen television as is common throughout the country.

    The hotel offers complimentary wifi throughout the property as well as a free-of-charge business centre. Another great plus at the Omega is that babysitting is offered as a free service.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    For those staying on an all-inclusive basis, the hotel's restaurant offers a buffet for all three meals of the day. The space itself is rather dark and the tables are fairly close together meaning not much intimacy. What's more, there is no terrace so al fresco dining in the evening is not an option. There are various themes for the buffet, including Moroccan, French, Italian and fish and each has several varieties so you will almost certainly not eat the same thing twice during your stay. For those guests who do not have access to the buffet or for those who just fancy a change, there is an à la carte menu available featuring a dozen or so specialities such as fish soup, veal escalope or entrecôte steak. During the day time, between dips in the pool, you can also find sustenance at the snack bar where light fare, such as sandwiches and pizzas, is offered.

    For those night birds amongst you, you will be pleased to hear that the Omega has one of Agadir's biggest nightclubs on its premises. Beirut, which claims to have a select entry policy, features a round dance floor at its centre, numerous intimate seating niches and pillars covered with glass mosaic tiles as well as golden cushions and other elements which give the place a bit too much of a bling bling feel! A mix of Arab and international music is pumped out each night along with a wide selection of drinks at the bar. Just a warning: the staircase leading down to the club is dark, long and narrow.

    Beach

    Although the Omega is not right on the beach, guests will not have to trek all the way down to the coast as the hotel provides a complimentary shuttle every couple of hours. The long, wide public beach, which is safe and pretty much protected from high winds and large waves, provides plenty of space for all to sunbathe and enjoy themselves even though the hotel does not have a private section of the beach given over to its guests. Watersports can be practiced in Agadir and there are several companies offering their services. Just ask reception and they will be happy to point you in the right direction.

    To know

    The Omega hotel underwent a six-month renovation and reopened in May 2012 so was in a pretty good condition during our visit less than six months later. The hotel's bar/lounge was, though, still under renovation but should now be open once again and welcoming guests for cocktails.

      • Location 8.3

      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.

      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.

      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.

      • Location 7.56

      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.

      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.

      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!
