Don't go if you want Union Jack shorts and towels
"We went for a week in June and having read previous reviews, knew what to expect. We had booked a sea view, but ended up with a sea view junior suit. So that was a good start. It did turn out that the air conditioning didn't work. It was reported, but I can only think that when the engineer came and heard the fan blowing, he thought it was ok. Unfortunately it didn't blow cold air out..... Room 617. If you get this nice room, check the air con when you arrive; it could take some time to get fixed.
The hotel itself is great. The staff are very friendly and helpful, but if you speak a bit of French, this will help. I tried with my school day French and they seemed to appreciate that.
The entertainment staff are brilliant. Big shout for Omar who tries harder than most to get what British are there, to join in. He speaks good English and will come and sit with you for lunch or dinner and really have a good natter with you. I would say the hotel clients are 90% French. They are good fun, join in the entertainments and are very well behaved!!! Some Brits could learn a lot from them!!!
The pool is great and always warm. The sunloungers are free and have nice thick matresses on them too.
I suppose the best thing about the place is the food. I'm not a big lover of all inclusive, but it was only for a week, so thought I'd give it a try. The food is superb, with different themed nights and enough different dishes to make it very easy to satisfy anybody's palate.
Outside the hotel is the beach, just across a 20 metre stretch of pedestrianised area. You can sit and watch the people go by, or if you had kids, they could safely play while you finished off your meal.
The two a la carte restaraunts included in the price, (1 each per week), are also excellent.
Would reccommend Agadir and this hotel, just don't go if you like all things British."

Good Hotel on sea front
"Tafoukt Hotel was recommended to us by 2 friends. We read the reviews and as the majority stated this is a good hotel with a lot of French guests. My husband, John, and myself were the only 2 English people from the 11-25 May 2009. We spoke to a Dutch couple and a Belgium couple who we became friendly with. The only other people who spoke English were the staff and the animation team.
The food was good although it did become a bit repetitive after 2 weeks but there was always something you could find as there was quite a big choice.
The rooms are quite large with a separate toilet and shower room. We had a room with 2 balconys overlooking the pool and also the sea . We were right over the pool bar but as this closed at 11.00pm this did not bother us. If you wanted a drink after 11pm you had to go out of reception and down some stairs to the night club. We never heard any noise from quests at all.
Thanks to the animation staff Fadil, Omar, Naima, Robin, Axel and the rest whose names I cannot remember - sorry. They all tried to include us in the activities. We normally do not join in but owing to the fact that there were no English to speak to we found ourselves joining in darts, skittles, golf, archery, Arabic lessons! and I joined in a fashion show (clothes supplied by a boutigue round the corner). The evening cabaret show was very good.
If you like entertainment then go to the Tafoukt Hotel. If you don't then try a different hotel."

Decameron tafoukt agadir
"This hotel is still known by locals as ' Tafoukt' ( sun in arabic ) although it was taken over by the international Decameron group and given a makeover in the last year or so. For the better I'd say. We stayed one week Jan '09 and found very little to complain about. Food excellent and varied with plenty of choice, and there was always bottled water on the table every meal. Wine as well if you want it. Waiters not too bad at all, considering the typical laid back Moroccan style.
Neat gardens and large heated pool, kept nice and well used during our stay. The private beach area was also well supervised and maintained. Our room was cleaned daily and overall cleanliness was excellent for this country. Didn't have much dealings with hotel reception so no comment there, but the pool bar staff were good and always trying to crack a joke.
It does help if your french is reasonable, with all staff, but you would need to be fluent to be able to join in with the daily activities run by the hotel's animation team.
The building work on the promenade area between hotel and beach is all finished now and looks very good, but they have just started on the pavements at the front. This is quite far from the front rooms so shouldn't be a noise problem.
Overall a good value hotel in an excellent location."

A litle gem,
"We had stayed in Agadir about 3 years ago and liked the laid back feel, so booked the Decameron a more central hotel.
We could'nt have been in a better position, thankfully the promenade had been finished outside the hotel so access to the beach was easy, having said that it still has ongoing work outside the side of the hotel.
We were in a minority being 2 out of 8 or so English people which suited us fine. The only downside to that being lack of communication but we did try with our limited French.
The food was excellent every day with a good variety of hot and cold buffet, lovely bread and plenty of choice of desserts. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend but
keep it quiet its lovely."

Very Good Hotel
"Stayed at the Decammeron Tafoukt for 2 weeks. The hotel itself is very clean, modern and resonably appointed hotel. We had a large family room with seperate bathroom and toilet. The rooms are cleaned every day, with the towels also changed every day. There are clean towels available for the pool and the beach. However,even though the hotel has a 'no reserving sunbeds' policy, if you want one by the pool you will need to claim it by 09:00. The private beach area will need to be claimed by about 10:00!!!!
The food is varied, with a large salad bar, hot food area, fresh breads every morning etc. However, by the end of the second week were starting to get a bit bored by the selections, even though there are themed evenings ( Morrocan night, italin night etc). There are also two a la carte restaurants, the Miso and the Cafe Del Mar, both ofwhich served excellent food.
The hotel is very french based, and also had a sizeable polish contingent. Most announcements are made in french, although some of the animation team worked hard to include announcments in english.
Overall, a very good hotel which helped towards an enjoyable holiday."

A Superb Holiday Location
"A superb hotel, in an excelllent location on the main beach strip. The hotel itself is modern and extremely clean. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience. The food was superb at all times, with plenty of choice and varierty. They had themed evenings such as Morroccan delicacies, chinese, italian etc.. So catered for all. The salad bar was gorgeous with fresh breads everyday, and loads of fruit and deserts. The snack bar had the usual burgers, pizzas, crepes etc and was ideal for the kids or a bit of a bite in the afternoon. Plenty of beds around the pool, and on the beach too. Lots of poolside entertainment and activities throughout the day, and evening entertainement every night. Our room was superb. It was huge and had a private terrance with a sea view. It was cleaned thouroughly everyday with fresh towels and bedding. Fresh towels for the pool were available everyday also.
The only downside to the hotel is the main language spoken is French. 80% of all activities and announcements are in french although they did make efforts to translate some into english. The evening shows again were predominantly french spoken. The kids club again was mainly french speaking.
If this would not bother you then I totally recommend this hotel. It was great for all ages. There was 14 of us in my party and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
I would deffinately go again, and in fact I wish I was still there now."

not a 4 star
"this is a 3 star hotel at best, sorry but thats what we thought as did many others, the new owners of the hotel De Cameron are trying hard to make it better though. The reception is beautiful but we got given the key to 209 (as did many other couples) this room was close to the pool/entertainment area, was dark & worst of all it stank of pee ! we got moved to a duplex in the non refurb bit, it seemed very basic despite being sea front, and when the plumbing started to play up we got moved again to room 360, this room was much better but dont expect the trimmings with a 4 star, no tea/coffee / room service / bathroom freebies. The food was very good, & saved us transferring next door to the new Atlas which i might add definately does have the makings of a 5 star when they sort the kitchens (food poisoning) out. So the Takoukt has a french tour company Lookea based there, they are a bunch of kids prob more suited to a kids holiday camp or butlins, they are very noisy & to be honest the only place they can be avoided is on the beach! there is entertainment/cabaret show every night and i think the whole of agadir hears it! basically if you are looking for peace and quiet this most definately isnt the right hotel. Dont bother sending postcards from Agadir, they take at least 3 weeks. we flew thomson from bristol, short flight but leg room is most definately for "hobbits" the coach trip is only 30 mins, weather was iffy in our second week, there is a sea mist which rolls in & unlike other places it doesnt go away.There isnt so much to do here the tour excursions are very expensive - we were told by everyone not to go to marakesh, its a very long drive for starters. We did do a bit of shopping but its not as cheap as you think and haggling is very tiring if your not in the mood.as a bad back sufferer the beds are like rock i have never been so glad to see my tempur bed at home ! glad we went but wouldnt go back.."

If you really must go to Agadir, this hotel is nice
"This hotel was nice and seemed to be one of the nicest on the strip. We're glad we stayed here but wouldn't recommend Agadir in general. The beach in Agadir is not the best and there is no private beach for this hotel - it really shouldn't have beach in the hotel name. The pool area is nice but can be very loud. There is an animation team who are generally quite nice but are constantly doing activities by the pool.
We went in June and the evenings get quite chilly - advise bringing a cardigan or light jacket. The evening entertainment is all in French so if you don't speak French, you won't understand any of it."

Hotel 4 star, but not all rooms are lots of work on the beach
"We stayed hear for just 1 week being English but living in france, we knew it would be all French speaking so not bothered with that but as I dont speak a great deal of French did feel a littel left out.
The hotel is lovley the food fantastic, but our room was rubbish it was at the back on e of the older rooms 543 if they offer you this room say no, it overlooked the new building of a hotel and that is what the problem was at 6 every morning the workmen arrived at 7 they started work right outside, you could not open the windows or have the curtaines ipen as they would look in or your would get the terrable noice, we asked if we could change our room but were told no as this is what Look Vouyages have booked they are substandard rooms, we were not told that this building work was going on also along the back of the hotel on the beach so no privet beach either, it is not the fault of the hotel at all, I would reccomend this hotel but not that room realy they should not be using it, it was very dated as well, I think the rest of the hotel has been updated but they seem to have left this block for some reason, other then that weather great people lovley.
Howeve if you do go to Agadir souk you have to be prepared to be agresive buying I feel that any Morrocan will try and rip you off if you let them, its in their nature that is all, so be like it back thye like it, be aware of people saying they are official guids or security for the souk all rubbish, just keep an eye on your bag and just dont look at anyhting, unless you want to buy it if you look they think you want to buy.
If youa re going the children realy need pens biros stello in French please take loads and give them out, they all have to go to school but are very poor, I didnt know this and wished I did.
Other then that is says what it does on the tine hot good foor nice beaches? and good pool would not go for 2 weeks though, we found 1 week was enough not a great deal to do.
The horse riding was rubbish, dont book tours in the hotel they are a lot more money there are loads of privet tour companies on the outside we went and it was cheeper and good"
