Advantages A fair hotel in Agadir
|Value for Money|
We escaped to Morocco this Easter and stayed at the hotel Sud Bahia in Agadir.
We booked the hotel and flight independently worked out a little cheaper not much. When we arrived in Agadir airport at about 6 o’clock pm we got a taxi to the hotel. This was sensible as we had thought of hiring a car from airport but it would have been difficult to find the hotel as it was getting dusk and in a large sprawling seaside resort. . The airport of Agadir is in fact quite a distance from Agadir itself about 30- 40 minutes away.
The Sud Bahai is a Hotel that was built in the 1960’s after an earthquake that flattened a lot of this coastal area. So if you want an older more traditional hotel this is not for you.
Enter into the hotel and there is a fairly large lobby with a greetings /booking desk which was usually manned by at least 2 people. This front desk is open 24 hours. There is a concierge service on hand to offer sightseeing assistance. There is also a laundry service available.
Then into the bedroom. Our room had twin beds a bedside cabinet with two bedside lamps on it and a telephone.
There was one chair in the room, shame there were not two as there would just have been room for two chairs. At the foot of the bed here were some drawers under a long unit on which a television sat.
The beds we found comfortable not soft but not so hard you felt like you were sleeping on a plank of wood.
The bathroom had a toilet a bidet a washbasin, the tap dripped a bit possible with a lot of forcing to stop but irritating. There was a bath which had a shower attachment.
The bathroom was only just alright not luxurious. I think it would be good if they updated it soon. White towels were provided, these were clean but although not terrible they were obviously quite old. We were left some individual small soap in the bathroom. But no shampoo and shower gels, no toothpastes.
Wander past the reception to the restaurant. We had booked half board so had our breakfasts and evening meals here… The restaurant had tables set out for 4 an people wee never had any trouble finding table in a position that suited us. Staffs were there to greet and seat you if you required but we always preferred to find our own table. Some of the staff spoke English and all were pleasant. The restaurant had windows all along one side this looked out over the pool area.There were not many waiting staff but this was Easter and hotel not full, however there was enough staff to for the needs of all the customers.
Saying there were only 2 choices there was always something that we liked. Starters would be a choice of soup or something like melon, salad or meats. We usually had the soup it was usually ok sometimes well, sometimes a bit watery. A couple of slices of bread were served in a bread basket on the table. The main would always a choice of fish with rice/ vegetables/ salads, one night there was a cous cous dish. The alternates would be chicken or beef, all the dished were fairly European I Thought we might have some more traditional Moroccan fare.Desserts.
Breakfasts were served in the restaurant from 7 am till 10am we were usually up by 8 -8.30.
Although staff were around at breakfast the breakfast food was displayed on a servery where you helped your selves. Some of the choices for breakfasts were fair, breads, croissants, tostadas, jams and marmalades, eggs sometimes boiled sometimes scrambled, cold meats, salads. Cups of tea were served at the table. There was fresh orange juice available but this had to be paid for.
Again Breakfasts were fine good to set us up for the day.
Although we did not need this there was a snack bar next to the pool selling drinks and light refreshments, I noticed some people eating pizzas there. There is a small bar area where were bought some beer one night and listened to the entertainment. The hotel had a guy who played a keyboard most evenings. The night we went in there was a display of some local traditional dancing. This was ok for a light entertainment.
I think that there is also a disco available on summer nights although we were not aware of this.
Overall my opinion of this hotel was that it was fine. Maybe not the most glamorous but a good, clean hotel. The situation was ok, not far from sea or town. The price for a week, 7 days in early June for bed and breakfast is £64. Per person for bed breakfast evening meal its £96.50p per person. We paid less than this in April. These prices do not include air fare of course.Would I be prepared to go to this hotel again? Yes I would be happy to stay here if in the area
