    Location 7.0 /10

    The Riad Villa Blanche is located at the far south end of the city of Agadir, just opposite the Sofitel Thalassa Sea & Spa hotel and next to the Robinson Club hotel. Agadir city centre is a 10-minute drive from hotel. Although it doesn't open directly onto the beach, the beach can be seen down below. The Riad is in the second row of hotels, so you have to cross the street then walk past the Sofitel Thalassa Sea & Spa hotel to get to it. There are no shops surrounding the Riad, only houses. The Riad Villa Blanche is located in a residential area.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The 28 guest rooms are laid out around a patio, and feature a chic and sophisticated decor. No two guest rooms are decorated in the same style, but they do all feature wood, and various decorative objects from different countries. The decor in the rooms could be classified as contemporary-Anglo-Moroccan-Indian. Five themes have made it possible to create the unique elegance of the rooms: African, Moroccan, Indian, Classic and Ethnic. Some of the furniture is English in style; some has been collected from India;, and certain objects are Moroccan; but the overall style is contemporary. It has to be said, it all goes together very nicely. All of the guest rooms have a balcony, some of which even have a fireplace. Note that only 10 of the rooms have a sea view, and only one does not have a balcony. The spacious bathrooms are fitted with a lovely Italian-style shower and a bathtub. Zellige, wrought iron and zinc are the main materials used in the decor. In terms of amenities, free Wi-Fi, a television, a minibar, and a safe are all provided in the rooms.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    The Riad Villa Blanche opened its doors in February 2011 with the aim of providing vacation makers the opportunity to stay in a charming hotel rather a typical club in Agadir. The Riad Villa Blanche is an elegant white building overlooking a swimming pool (not heated). There is a patio to let in the Agadir breeze where guests can enjoy a drink, read or relax. The bar with colonial and Moroccan decor (large leather armchairs, Moroccan pouffe and table) affords a beautiful view of the swimming pool and the garden. There is also a small terrace where guests can sip their drinks under the shade of a pergola. The whole ensemble is cosy, but the atmosphere is quite sombre.

    Food and drink 8.50 /10

    The restaurant is not far from the patio and bar, in a room with a hushed ambiance. This is where all three meals are served. Renowned for its cuisine beyond the walls of the hotel, the Villa Blanche attracts locals from Agadir. Moroccan and European cuisine is blended with seasonal and regional products, and the decor features dark shades of black and red. The room is divided into two sections, giving it an even more intimate feel. The oriental decoration has been pulled off splendidly. Once again, the materials used are all local. People come to taste the fine cuisine in the soft, calm atmosphere. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served à la carte (the menu is changed regularly), and mainly consist of European dishes with a Moroccan twist. Weather permitting, lunch is served on the hotel's small terrace.

    Spa 8.3 /10

    The spa on the lower ground floor offers good services in a pleasant setting, with a large heated swimming pool standing proudly in the entrance. On either side are massage rooms, treatment rooms and a steam room (on reservation only due to its size). Guests can also relax in the whirlpool bath and sauna. The ambiance is Moroccan, with candles, zellige, stucco and dimmed lighting. The products used for the treatments are 100% natural and are made from olive oil, jasmine, argan oil, rose, orange blossom and dried vegetables. The masseurs are more than happy to offer Sahara, Berber, Balinese and Ayurvedic massages. The more sporty types can work off all that food in the gym.

      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.

      • 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.

      • Location 7.44

      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.

      • Value for money 6.92
      • 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.

      Le Framissima Les Dunes d'Or is a friendly hotel offering "all inclusive" service and is suitable for family holidays. Its major advantage? It is located on the seafront. Many sports are provided under the leadership of a dynamic animation team. The restaurant service is very diverse.

      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.

      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.

      Here you are entering one of the most beautiful hotels in Agadir, which is set apart by its location: far from the beach, outside Agadir, but on a 36-hole golf course and with a superb spa. The surroundings here exude peace and luxury. Opened in February 2007, the Riad combines Moroccan and contemporary styles. It's a shame the restaurant isn't up to the same standard.

      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!

      The Robinson Club hotel is certainly impressive on first sight in terms of its size and length, but once inside you feel completely at ease in the very pleasant environment of beaches, sand dunes and forests. The services are very high quality for an all-inclusive club hotel. The hotel can also boast being one of the most ecological in Morocco. Special attention is paid to the environment here, which is not an easy task for a club-hotel of this size.
