We are a family of five - one 19 year old and twins of 12.
We decided to make the most of our holiday after reading mixed reviews. Ignore the bad reviews.
Hotel - beautiful throughout and very ethnic. Always clean, in fact we were mesmerised at how hard the cleaning staff worked each day. The rooms had everything you needed and the shower was always hot.
Food - Buffet was good - we always found something to eat. The kids miss having pancakes for breakfast and the omelettes were amazing. The Moroccan restaurant was lovely for a fixed menu. If you go into the same bit of the restaurant each time a waiter adopts you and sets up your table with bread and drinks every day. A little tip from time to time goes a long way.
Beach - excellent private beach which did not allow the trades people on. You could order your sandwiches in the morning and they were delivered at lunch time. Basic, but we didn't eat much for lunch anyway. Free drinks from the bar where they really looked after you.
Staff - All the staff were excellent. The bar staff remember what you drink every time and if you tip them even 20Dh you get even better service. They even taught us some Arabic. The cleaner was lovely even though her English was not good. She came to say goodbye as we left. The Animation team were great. No pressure to join in the activities but much more fun if you do. Even the lifeguards ended up friends with us. A very happy bunch of people with the attitude "Enjoy life".
Trips - We went to Marrakesh for the day - so different from Agadir. An experience.
Other guests - If you want to be with lots of English people, not the place for you. Mostly Eastern European, French and Belgian which we think makes for a more interesting holiday.
Entertainment - dancing every day and night around the pool. We got very fit very quickly. The shows were good, although the sketch shows (only about two of them) got lost in translation. The Miss/Mr Agador and dancing competitions were hilarious. The nice thing about the evenings was that no-one got uncontrollably drunk, kids were included all the time and the music stopped at midnight. Very considerate towards the hotel guests.
After watching all the other guests for two weeks my advice would be to smile at all the staff and say hello. You get much better service for it, even without tipping. They all work 12-13 hour shifts, six days a week and never stop. All for less than £200 per month. Appreciate them and they will be friends for life. My eldest daughter cried all the last day, which we found very funny, because she didn't want to leave.
Take their philosophy on board and 'enjoy lif'e. We intend to go back at Easter and can't wait.
