We have just returned from our two weeks holidays in Agadir. I could not find many faults in this hotel. The staff is lovely; nothing is too much for them. The buffet food does feel repetative when eating for two weeks but there is plenty of choices so no issues there either. We were there with our two teenage sons and even they were so happy that we did not have to worry about. The managers Roi and Raphael were always out and about and speaking with the guests. The Thompsons reps Hasan and John were ever so friendly and helpful, specially Hasan was very informative.
Our rooms were on ground floor, at the rear of the hotel so it was very close to the swimming pool/beach. Which was a definitely added bonus since we did not need to have a long walk to go to our room when coming from a swim.
The locals were very nice, As the hotel was situated on the beach, we always used to go for a walk on the promenade in the evenings and just a 'no' and 'thank you' for the street vendors was effective. They never tried to push their lucks or hassled us. We went to local Souk as well and ofcourse had to haggle but this is a common practice in a lot of countries. We also took a trip to Marakkesh and it was worth it but was long and tiring. Marakkesh is a city rich of history and Morroccan architecture - something that we did not find much in Agadir probably due to the recent re-construction after the earthquake of 60's.
Weather was a definite let down (specially the sea mist until later afternoon) but I understand that it was a typical August weather in Agadir.
We would definitely go back to Agadir and stay in the same hotel however not in August.
