The Rui chain spoils its customers who come to expect a pretty high standard for their money. I got the feeling that this hotel is one of the older ones and it is getting just a smidge complacent. replenishment at meals takes a few minutes - the duck ran out (not literally) at 7.45 and I got served a bone! One day at breakfast it took several requests, finally to the maitre d' to get the banana juice an hour into service. I would say that catering was 95% sharp.
I was not troubled by noise - room at the side of the hotel. The bedroom itself was only slightly larger than the bathroom which was HUGE, with a separate loo and bidet. All kept spotless.
The pool is fine and clean and the loungers are okay if a bit old style. I was never aggressive enough to get one of the mattress beds which got towelled up at about 11pm.
I went the second week in June and the weather was just perfect. Warm but not burning - apart from about 4-5pm when the sun started to bite, so plan a late slosh about with sun cream. I did very little - only went for one potter around locally and the shops were unexciting, plus one foray to the local souk which was much more open spaced than the one in Marrakech and more local oriented.
Agadir tourism has suffered in the world recession - there are a lot of shell hotel buildings. But the airport is small and easy to use.
Wifi was good in the hotel lobby. no probs
