Reviewed 26 May 2013

Make no mistake , this a classy hotel.

The service is attentive, the food is excellent, and the rooms and facilities are first class. We ate in La Caravanne, the food is good quality and varied, the desserts are just divine.
The private beach is well tended , as is the area around the large swimming pool.Plenty of sun loungers here.
Location : It is around a 40 minute walk along the wide beach-side pathway before you encounter any bars,cafes,shops etc, Another 30 minutes gets you to the Marina. We did enjoy this walk. For those that choose not to walk Taxis are cheap and plentiful in Agadir

In Summary this is a full service 5 star hotel.

A note of caution.. We paid in cash for our drinks with dinner each night . On checking out we were presented with a bill for drinks in La Caravanne. We explained that we has paid previously. There was no argument, and the desk clerk just asked me to sign the bill with a statement that we had paid already, I put this comment in because I would advise any guest leaving for the airport to allow sufficient time for this activity,

Stayed here in May 2013 and can not rate this hotel highly enough. Great ambiance, excellent facilities and customer service. The room was clean, modern and had everything. The service and attention to detail is outstanding. I would certainty like to mention some staff names who were outstanding. Ibtissam, Fatiha, Aziz and yousaf.
I would totally recommend this hotel without thinking twice.
Look no further. Book here right now!!

We chose to stay in the villa with the pool for 4 days and found the following. The pool was cold until day 3, as it was unused. There are 4 villas so it would be a good idea to keep at least one fully heated in case it gets occupied.

There are sufficient staff who clean the place thoroughly on a daily basis and seem interested in their jobs( a good point throughout accor hotels). The private butler was enthusiastic and competent apart from one occasion when ice was ordered and arrived 2 hours later! The shower was amazing as it feels like being under a waterfall and temp remains consistent. The bed had a great big mound in the middle as though it was 2 singles joined.(not worth the effort climbing over to my other half)
We had a private road entrance to villa to which access was denied on one occasion at 1 am. Not being lazy but we had a baby which we didn't fancy carrying asleep all the way. The architecture is magnificent in the main part of the building with an opening roof which is amazing irrespective of the time of day you go there. Breakfast could do with taking a lesson from sofitel marrakesh as there was no salmon and the middle circular area leaves a lot to be desired as there wasn't anything special there.

The spa is fantastic and cannot be faulted. So restaurant and bar, as it is called, was a formidable experience and in tune with an international fine dining experience. They have managed to recruit extremely professional staff/chefs, each one of which played a part in bringing together one of the best meals we have ever had. The entertainment is also great and would highly recommend it.

Overall, all factors considered, the manager of the hotel has to be congratulated for his achievements in the micro-managing this huge hotel and given that the clients are all generally more particular and difficult to please than those staying at lesser hotels, the overall package is truly commendable and would strongly recommend this hotel over any other in Agadir, especially for those looking for superior levels of service and quality.

Room Tip: Villas ensure you have a complete privacy with the added advantage of a butler who sorts out anythin...

Superb hotel, friendly and professional staff. I visited a symposium which was held in this hotel. Very well organized. The hotel has also a modern spa. The food is good and the hotel is situated on a beautiful location on the beach. I really recommend this hotel.

We have stayed in the Sofitel Agadir many times and always want to go back for more. It is a beautiful hotel with very friendly staff. There is a dinner buffet which is of good quality and young children eat for free. We tried the surfing (adults and children aged 7 and 8) and the instructors were great. My only criticism is the sea is a bit dirty and the local authority should do something urgently about that. I had a look at other hotels along the Agadir promenade and the Sofitel is defintiely the nicest.

If your choosing a hotel for your next stay I. Agadir look no further, u have to try there spa it is a must! Al dining experiences are a must, highly recommend the Asian. From the waiters Ahmad was the most memorable always taking care, they also always manage to surprise you with some flower arrangement in your room , one day it's a heart one day it's a swan, in addition to the normal cleaning they also do the turn down service, also they have the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, I think the positives don't stop , last but not least the so club they have has superior show and look no further for night life activities, you are at the best club in town already

We had a great stay at this hotel but the best was the surfing right in front of the hotel at the beach. Very friendly and competent surfing instructors. Children and adults, we all managed to stand up and catch waves, we were all beginners aged 7 and up. Wetsuits for everyone so we stayed in the water for hours. surf boards in all sizes. Great boogie boarding, too. Should be advertised much more by the hotel. Tennis court was great too, very good instructor. Again, this should be communicated more by the hotel. We would recommend this to families with little children as well as teenagers.
