Washing day

... before we leave tomorrow. It was fine washing them in the sink, however trying to find places to hang wet clothes where they would dry relatively quickly was challenging! Drying my socks with a hairdryer was a first!

Mel unfortunately chose the window which when it decided to pour down during our evening yoga class proved to be a fatal decision...clothes were soaked, ...

Woke up and decided to have a morning off from yoga to let my body have a rest and recover - feeling a tad achy to say the least.

Breakfast was the usual cereal, yoghurt and a smoothie made with banana meaning I couldn't have any.... they seem to be ignoring my request for a berry based one! Then it was down to the beach for a morning of surfing! Actually managing to get up and stay up on the board now woo...there's a surfer chick in me somewhere! ...

After wondering the maze of stalls we got on the coach to paradise valley, a beautiful valley in the middle of nowhere which took 30 minutes to walk to after an hours drive! It was seriously warm today so glad to cool off in the fresh water lakes.

Also meant I had to face and conquer my fear of fish - well the feel of ...

... and rice - rather tasty I must say. After dinner we sat on the sofas and chatted about what we all do in our "normal" lives back at home! I probably had the most uninteresting of jobs - we had Alexa who sells gaskets, marketing people for redbull, a guy who works for victoria secret, bbc employees and best of all someone who used to work for BAE who still had the marketing video for the ...

... and on the third you can accept. What I had to share wasnt a feast by any stretch of the imagination but the lady seemed to be very grateful, I was glad she sat beside me and even though we couldnt speak much we shared some smiles and laughed a little.

From the bus depot in Agadir I grabbed a petite taxi to my new hotel, they had no record of my booking from the night before, or else they just hadnt checked their inbox, but ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Al Madina Palace Hotel Agadir

    Awful hotel if you have booked cancel

    from

    i feel i must warn other travellers this hotel and morocco may not be what you expect. We arrived late at night to be given a room in block 1, this overlooked the busy road outside which was extremely noisey,with locals in cars on motorbikes hooting horns and racing up and down. Plus the noise from nearby nightclubs which was a constant thumping in the room until 5am in the morning. I rang reception and complained, they said yes, we know it is noisey,next morning we eventually managed to change our room to block 5. The staff were not helpful at all, it took all day to sort it out, I did ask to speak to the manager who was never available. The rooms at the hotel were awful, the bathrooms disgusting, mouldy and worn. I was not the only one complaining it seemed most of the guests had a complaint about noise, blocks 1,2,3, all face the main road, block 4 partially sheltered, block 5 was behind block 4 so was quieter. Opposite the hotel are two new hotels being built, fortunately these were not being worked on while we were there or that would have been even worse, The maids only seemed to do the bare minimum required, there was dust on the t.v. and cabinets and drink rings on the furniture. The food was poor quality, the worst we have ever had, the dining room tatty. However the waiters were very pleasant and polite, almost as if they were apologizing for the food. This hotel should not be sold as a 4/5 star because it is not. We will not return to Morocco ever again. I could not wait to fly home.

    Great Moroccan Atmosphere

    from

    We were nearly put off the hotel by the October reviews and were delighted to find a beautiful, older-style hotel which is like a little oasis in the midst of Agadir. The lobby area had lovely tiles and beautiful flower arrangements and big brass lamps as did our room. We were fortunate in that we had a high room with a largish balcony and heard no noise from the road although I believe some of the lower rooms are just above the street and could be quite noisy. The hotel grounds are on different levels with beautiful gardens and even a little Monet Bridge with a pool with turtles in. Food is fab, magnificant choice at all meals and if you're not happy with that you can have vouchers to go to the Italian, Moroccan, Mexican or Lebanese Restuarants just outside which I have to say don't compare to the hotel either for atmosphere or food - great singer and musician on an evening. When the sun went down we had booked in for a couple of massage sessions at the Beauty Salon which was very professional and at about £7 for a full body massage seemed a good deal!!

    A disgrace

    from

    When we first got to the hotel we thought what are all these complaints about! the pool, restaurant & the bedroom looked at a first glance wonderful.The staff very kindly gave us a balcony room, as I requested one at the time of booking.This for us was a terrible mistake,on our first night we started to receive visitors from the unguarded drain outlet on the balcony, it wasn't the fact that we had them as the problem exists all round the world,but they laid dead where we killed them for 8 DAYS, our room was not swept or washed for the same amount of time, to counteract this problem I put a beermat & a ashtray over the drain, we knew that there should have been a guard over it as our next door neighbours had one, in the meantime we both got ill along with many others with the very expected travellers tummy upset, we struggled with this with visits to the local pharmacy got more pills & eventually we were advised by our rep that we needed a Dr who diagnosed a parasite, our prescription between us consisted of 9 medicines 5 of them being antibiotics.

    A little jaded ...

    from

    was how we found the Al Madina Palace and how we felt on our return home. Our room unfortunately overlooked the sea (!) and led directly onto a very busy road and building site. The saving grace was that no work was carried out on the building site during our stay. The road was busy all day and all night. We thought that a sensible solution would be to keep the windows closed and use the air conditioning, but were told by reception that the air conditioning gets turned off for their winter (the average day temperature during our stay was 30+ degrees!). This made the nights very uncomfortable and we did find it difficult to sleep. We asked to change our room (we had booked a junior suite) but were told there were none available and we did not force the issue (which we regretted).

    Not a four star hotel

    from

    We arrived in this hotel after a four hour transfer from Marrakesh where we had four wonderful nights in a brillant hotel (Le Jardin de la Madina).

    Faded grandeur

    from

    The LTI AL Madina Palace hotel was a disappointment as when

    reading the brochure I expected to find a bit of the luxury only to get faded and tired surroundings. Everything in the hotel was worn including bedding etc. In its time it was probably lovely but it has not been maintained to the standard mentioned in the brochure.

    Also we could see and hear building works which continued during the day, then noise of the surrouding area, clubs road etc went on to the early hours, we chose this hotel as it was written up as a quiet and relaxing holiday I cannot believe that the brochures I have checked have given it a 4 star plus. Never again!

    Good food, great service - very relaxing!

    Spent a week here for our honeymoon this August.

    On the whole a very nice hotel with excellent standards of service demonstrated by the pool team. restaurant staff and hotel receptionists.

    This hotel is amazing. Will definately go back. The staff are so friendly and the food is good. Drink prices in the hotel are a bit steep, but all in all, it is brilliant. Highly recommended!!!!
