    Location 6.41 /10

    The hotel is located 10 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from the centre of town. To reach the hotel from the airport (located 15.5 miles away), allow around 30 minutes.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The rooms on the top two floors are the best orientated. They offer a good view of Agadir. Opt for those that overlook the swimming pool and the gardens of the hotel. They are comfortable. The furniture is contemporary, bright, refined and tidy. You will find a safe, telephone via the switchboard, mini-bar, satellite TV, adjustable air conditioning and a small balcony. Room-service operates 24 hours a day. The bathrooms have bath tubs.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1978 and renovated in 1996, the Sahara has 268 rooms and 2 suites in a large building with six floors. A 10 acre park houses the sports facilities. The beach is located opposite the hotel, on the other side of the road. As the beach is quite remote, the hotel's most pleasant leisure area is the swimming pool. The decor of the common areas is inspired by Moroccan palaces. Upstairs, the subdued and austere light in the corridors may surprise you. It adds a touch of mystery to the facility. The business centre is of high quality. It has a capacity of 400 people (1 large dining room and 4 rooms with a capacity of 50 people.)

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Sahara has 4 restaurants including a restaurant that serves international cuisine where you will find buffets of various themes for guests staying on half-board. The Marrakech restaurant offers an a la carte menu. The Moroccan restaurant offers traditional dishes (various tajines, salads). Finally, the snack bar serves quick and light meals.

    Beach 6.95 /10

    The Sahara hotel is not located on the seafront. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the beach. You can find mattresses, umbrellas and deck chairs at various private rentals. There are plenty of private agencies for practising water sports (UCPA, Palm Beach ).

    To know

    The Sahara hotel is appropriate for both businessmen and couples in search of calm and relaxation. The six-storey building lacks authenticity and warmth. It nevertheless offers quiet and comfortable rooms. Its 10 acre park gives you the opportunity to play many sports. It is badly located in relation to the beach. Here, you can forget pretty quickly that Agadir is a seaside resort .

      • Value for money 6.93
      • Location 6.5

      It may have all the facilities and amenities for the complete family holiday, but you cannot get away from the fact that the Anezi is pretty drab and poorly located. With a mix of regular hotel guestrooms and self-catering apartments, the complex also has several swimming pools, a full animation and entertainment programme and fitness and wellness facilities. It is also fair to say that the hotel is ageing quite badly and that there is a distinct lack of atmosphere around the place. There is nothing wrong though, per se, about the Anezi, so if you are looking for somewhere simple to stay and do not mind too much about the sad décor and ambiance then there are probably, no definitely, worse places to spend a week or two.

      Here, right in the centre of Agadir, is a charming hotel that hides its appeal well from the outside. Convivial, the Atlantic hotel is a small hotel for groups of friends or couples without children. It offers a pleasant pied-à-terre for visiting Agadir and its surrounding areas. Far from other large hotel structures, and is located 2,625 ft from the beach.

      • Value for money 6.71
      • Location 7.34

      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.

      • Location 7.4

      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.

      • Location 5.0

      If you are looking for a good family hotel where all ages can have a good time then the Beach Albatros is one place you might have to consider. Pretty close to the beach being one of the front row of hotels, it is a relatively large complex with everything you need for a successful holiday. The rooms, of which there is only one category, are fairly well appointed although could be bigger, the outdoor spaces are animated and convivial and the standard of food is above average for Agadir. In addition to the entertainment for the little ones, the adults can take advantage of the decent spa facility and for party-goers the biggest nightclub in the town will soon be open. The Beach Albatros is a good value property where your needs, if not too high, will be met.

      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 Kenzi Europa is a relaxing establishment where you can play a bit of sport (tennis). It is located not far from the beach and close to the centre of the town of Agadir. But its rooms could do with a little refurbishment. It is convenient for families who are looking for tranquility.

      The only charming hotel in the Agadir seaside resort. Compared to most of the city's club hotels, the Riad Villa Blanche is in a category all its own. Here, calm, tranquillity and refinement are the keywords. A place to relax in a cosy atmosphere, far from the hustle and bustle of 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.

      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!
