1. Re: all inclusive or self catering? agadir or marakesh?

Both are as different as chalk and cheese.

Agadir is a tourist haven with lots of sunshine, beach, restaurants, hotels and nothing to do. It is used by sunworshippers who want a Euro-style resort. I like the place as it is quiet and clean when I go in winter months.

Marrakech is a cultural heritage site with much to see, far more than Agadir. It is about three hours drive to the nearest beaches at Agadir or Essaouira (always worth a visit).

You must decide what you want beach, sun, day trips, lazing by the pool or culture. Marrakech has many riads as alternatives to hotels which are the real thing for Moroccan experience but few have pools. Some riads only have "splash" pools, tiny little things with no great value. All the larger tourist hotels have full sized pools and evening entertainment but are soul-less.

Marrakech is a fantastic place to visit which will leave a lasting impression on any visitor.

Check the following which may be of use in deciding:

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g293731-s1/…Things to Do for Agadir

In each, read articles in the "Things To Do" section but also make note of other important articles.

Just to add that All Inclusive packages to Morocco are not worth it. Well over rated. Food is bland, repetitive, timed and restrictive.

There are so many cheap options to eat outside hotels!!!.Be brave
