“Simple, down to earth - better than expected”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Booked for a 1 week stay (15-22 July) before I read the rather mixed bag of reviews to be found here.

The Igoudar proved to be a perfectly fine base for our family of 3: cheap & cheerful

We had a 2-room apartment on the ground floor; it had comfortable 'single' beds (which you can push together); a clean & adequate bathroom with shower & hot water & fresh towels every day; good & friendly service from cleaning staff (especially Fatima).

The kitchen is very simple with a 2-ring cooker, kettle, pans, basic crockery/cutlery; we cooked breakfasts & made lunches easily enough.
There was a large fridge.

The room has a safe but the key costs (I think) 2 dirhams a day. We felt safe enough & didn't use it.

Note there is no TV!

Room location didn't seem to make any difference, the place was not busy and so not noisy, didn't notice any road noise either. There are a lot of steps everywhere though as the site is on split-levels.

Reception was helpful enough for my simple requests (where is any supermarket; can we have some laundry done, can we have a map of the town, etc). Try to speak a little French if you can.

On arrival you have to pay a local tax (11 dirhams per person per each day's stay so, for example 231 dirhams for 3 people for 1 week);
I wasn't offered a receipt for this tax & had to ask the next day to get one.

The wifi in the lobby area worked well enough & is free.

Pool area seemed popular but we didn't really spend any time swimming or sunbathing.

Tips: bring your own shampoo, soap, toilet tissue; (travelling outside Europe you would anyway, wouldn't you).

We arrived late evening so had packed some teabags/coffee, snacks & noodles in our suitcase.

Shop at 'Marjane' supermarket. Just a short taxi ride away; 20 dirhams each way in the orange 'Petit' taxi. Always confirm price before you get in taxi. Schoolboy French will do & some drivers do speak English.

There is a mini mart for basic supplies just up the hill but we didn't try it.

Plenty of restaurants to be found in the beach area, the Jardin de l'Eau was very pleasant.

If on a budget (as we were) there is also 'Le Savannah' Restaurant around the block; (go out of hotel to the right, up hill 50m and turn first right, walk a further 50m or so): 3-courses for 55 dirhams each. The snackbar next door to Savannah was ok too.

Trips: A representative will contact you and offer a variety of day trips; we found our own agency outside and managed 4 or 5 trips by ourselves, at better prices. Don't just pay the printed prices, ask for a discount.

To see the city go on the 'Petit road train', just 18 dirhams each for a round trip of about 45minutes. Reception can tell you how to find it.

Checkout is at 12 midday. If you have a late flight you can leave suitcases in the hotel's luggage room for a few hours; (it seemed to be free to do this).

Transfers - from the airport to Agadir: you can find 'Grand' taxis (the white Mercedes) in the airport car park just outside the entrance. Its a fixed price 220 dirhams; (again check before you get in).
To the airport from hotel: you can usually find Grand taxis on the big main road just below front of the hotel; I didn't pre-book, just went outside & grabbed one; (fixed price: 220 dirhams)

In conclusion, the Igoudar was a simple & down to earth base we used for touring & day trips - better than expected!

Room Tip: Be aware there's quite a lot of steps as site is split-level

Reviewed 18 June 2014

Stayed at Igoudar for one week at the beginning of June. The apartments were extremely basic, but spacious. The overall presentation was tatty, with inground dirt. However, the beds were comfortable and we always had plenty of hot water. The pool area was nice and provided a good spot for sunbathing. There was free WiFi available in the reception area. The cleaners visited every day and changed towels on 4 occasions during our stay. The cooking equipment was a little basic and, at times, we had to be a little creative with preparing/cooking food. The apartments are a short walk to the beach and several restaurants, there is also a cash point directly outside the reception entrance. Transfer from the airport to the hotel is about 40 minutes and cost 220-240 dirham. The nearest supermarket, Marjane, that we could find, was a short taxi ride (costing 30 dirham), or a 30/40 minute walk away. We would not return to these apartments purely because we didn't like Agadir, nor the incessant hassle from shopkeepers, restaurant waiters etc etc

On first impression, this place seemed less than we were led to expect. But we soon found a lot to like here.

The rooms are simple and somewhat dated but everything worked, the place is well provided for self catering and the staff ensure that all is kept sparkling once a day. The pools are adequate and clean and there is ample space (and beds) for sun tanning. The hotel is well situated for local shops, the main beach and the Marjane supermarket is 10 minutes by bus.

We (two 50+ adults) stayed 7 nights and had a good time and we will be going again.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front that faces the beach so that you can enjoy a good breeze in the heat of the...

Very nice place to spend time with the family for example. Big house with living room, kitchen (with all equipment), bathroom and bedroom, plus terrace. Hotel is situated by the main street nearby the beach. Although it's quite difficult to find at the first time.
The bad point was lack of the heater - it was very cold inside during the night.

Excellent value for money....we paid 24 euros a night, and was allocated a two bedroom appartment with cooking facilities and a fridge..which we used for breakfast and sometimes a salad at lunch time. The location was fab, just a 10 minute walk to the beach and close to all the ...weather was good so spent a lot of time at the Pool.....have to say dont really like Morocco as a holiday destination but had a nice time here in Agadir, due to the fact we had two lots of friends also on holiday at the same time and our Moroccan friend was also in Agadir so was able to take us around and about...loved our two nights down at the Fish Market...
