"Only good for a week. The food then gets sickly, the "choice" of restaurants is misleading, and in fact they are all the same. Many of the guests, including us, found cockroaches, usually dead to be fair, but it was not 4* standard.
Most people staying for 2 weeks got a bad stomach. We loved the food for the first week, but then for some reason, you go off it, and donât want to eat at the buffet - I eat anything, and am not one of those English food only people!
Do not go all Inclusive, Moroccan food is fantastic, and the local restaurants are superb and so so cheap. L'escala is fantastic for seafood for example.
The staff and maids were very friendly, but overall the hotel was very disappointing. From the outside it looks like a dump, not at all maintained.
If you have a blonde gf, wife ect, then you wonât enjoy wandering away from the hotel too much, they get an awful lot of attention, and makes you feel very uncomfortable.
First Choice were great, and the excursions to Marrakesh are well worth doing. We spend a day at the Sofitel in Agadir, my word, what a hotel - in fact itâs worth going back to Agadir just for the Sofitel, the most stunning hotel in Morocco, and the staff there are brilliant."

"Exceeded our expectations on almost all fronts.
Usual international standard of room furnishings and equipment - more than we needed.
Good quality and exceptional variety of food - Service standard very good - Pool and gardens very pleasant - excellent location near beachfront of Agadir.
A downside? - Evening entertainment bad enough to be embarrassing.
Thomson? - Faultless.
