... extra pages to be inserted into her passport, but the American embassy in Rabat does not do that - she had to apply to the American consulate in Casablanca. We drove all afternoon, and it started to rain heavily. We were on our way to Todra Gorge, but at Azrou had to stop as the road ahead was blocked by snow. We camped in sub-zero temperatures, and it rained heavily, with a strong, biting wind that night.

... have looked pretty naive. It was also amusing how they would tell you want they thought you wanted to hear. When we were looking at scarves 'they are hand-made, very good quality' - even though you could see they have been finished with a sewing machine. We would play along with them and let them think they had us fooled.

After the drama of the night before it was quite nice to be leaving the city for a couple of days. We were to catch the bus to Essaouira, it is a beach side town about a 3 hour bus ride away. The only problem was we had purchased the tickets the night before and they were in my bag so we no longer had them. Hoping they would have some form of record of our purchase we headed along to the station to talk ...
... for 40dh for the day from "the Rastaman" and his friends. They lived in white tarp tents right on the beach and ran the business. We'd lay all day in the sun, with the breeze making it more comfortable in the heat (but also the blame for a sunburn here or there as we didn't realize how hot it really was). We'd put Tracy Chapman or Bob Marley (Rastaman's fave) on the iPod speakers. The Rastaman and his friends spent their entire day sitting at our feet, enjoying our music ...

Pro: Being the only Americans on our tour - we were with a couple from Poland, a couple from Brazil and a couple from Germany. Con: Not having ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Odyssee Park Hotel Agadir
Have just returned from a week stay in Morocco using this hotel as a base for exploring Agadir & also a two day trip to Marrakesh.
Despite what others have written previously my wife and I spent a wonderful week at this hotel. The staff are exceptonally friendly, the food is first class and the rooms are very clean and comfertable. No problems with service, sunbeds by the pool and all other ameneties such as the sauna and jacuzzi. We could not fault this hotel at all and will more than likely go back again. If you do go say hello to Mustapha in the bar, such a friendly person always willing to help.
We are two well travelled holiday makers and can't say we liked this hotel very much. We went with First Choice - fully inclusive. It completely lacked any atmosphere and was very dark and dingy. It was further away from the beach than we thought and the only way was down a slope. The gardens were lovely, but who uses them 'don't walk on the grass notices and very few seats. Outside pool area and snack bar very nice and pool staff and waiters very helpful.
Having been advised by first choice that this was an excellant hotel,we were happy to book .Sadly,we were soon to find out that we were mistaken,first impressions were good the hotel itself is very pleasent,good sized clean rooms,reasonable pool area etc.
On arrival at the hotel we were impressed with the decor and overall cleanliness. The hotel seemed very dark as they keep the lights turned off to save energy so you have to turn the lights on yourself when walking round, this was the same in most places in morocco. The room (number 423) was cleaned every day with fresh towels etc We had a lovely view of the pool and gardens which was south facing so we had the sun shining in the room - very nice!
My partner and I have chosen this hotel after we read the reviews on this site and saw the pictures. The hotel it self was really nice in a perfect location as well. But unfortunately the staff of the hotel was extremely rude.
We stayed at this hotel from 4/9 to 11/9 .The hotel was ok but below standards we had in the far East. Clean, staff in the restaurant very rude and never spoke to the Brits very much ,lack of the language ? Don't know. Food was awful and greasy too much French influence. Maybe ? They certainly seem to be centered on the French and Germans. If you want a sunbed by the pool be up by 6 am and put your towels out. This really annoyed me. They even sneaked down to move ones put out by the English guests. The gardens were pretty but a garden is a garden. All in all I would need to be dragged back sreaming to this hotel. Oh yes we were charged £18.00 for a wall safe for 1 week I complained and was told that it was a mistake and it was only £8 for the week. But why was it £18 for 2 weeks. Two times 8 is £16. There were 10 couples on our coach when we arrived at about 7.30pm on the 4th. The receptionist was rude and more or less thru our hotel cards to fill in which were all in French or German. Some guests even had to take their own baggage up.The air con was useless I could blow harder then that. I complained a maintenence man came removed the air filter which was filthy. Put in a new one clean and it was still the same so I gave up. Diddy dayton
We stayed at Odyssee Park Hotel for 2 weeks during August 05. The hotel was very nice, very clean and in a reasonably central location. You had to be up pretty early to save a sunbed by the pool but isn't that the same everywhere! The pool was very clean although if anything on the small side and at times got a little crowded. I personally think that although the gardens were lovely perhaps a little less garden and a bit more pool might have been better. The pool guy was helpful and always seemed to have 1 or 2 sunbeds and parasols in reserve. We were "full board plus" (all inclusive effectively) and thought the food was excellent all round. Chips available most days as part of the lunchtime BBQ but not in the evening. Our room was possibly a bit small for 4 and we might have been a bit unlucky in that it was right in one corner of the building so the shower was dodgy at peak times and the air conditioning was weak but these were our only complaints. Weather bearable given sea breeze and morning mist. Our kids are 13 and 10 (both girls) and had a great time. Younger kids seem to enjoy themselves but couldn't comment particularly on facilities. Beach was close by & busy but well worth a vist. Evening entertainment was dire - singer with keyboard. Just for info if you have not already visited it the hotel do have a website which has more info and pictures - (---). On the whole Morocco is well worth a visit. Just a note I did try and include photos but not sure if it would let me. If not I will try and post them separately so try looking at candid photos. If they don't appear I apologise but there are photos on hotel website as mentioned
My daughter and i stayed at the Odyssee park hotel in August.The hotel itself is a bright modern hotel with limited facilities ,the pool was very clean and had plenty of pool loungers with a lovely well tended garden perfect for sitting in the shade in the afternoon sun. The childrens facilities seemed to be limited apart from a lovely clean paddling pool.We never made it to the beach which seemed to be in the middle of a building site.The reception staff were helpful ,the restaurant was ok apart from some of the waiters who on some occasions were rude if you were new to the retaurant half board rules ie wine or coke had to be bought by the bottle if you were on half board Tariff . Would i go back probably not.
we stayed at the odyssee park from the 17.6.2005 to the 1.72005.we had a very good holiday.the hotel was very good it was in a good central location.our room had a balconey overlooing the pool.the room was nice andbright and spotlessly clean.the staff were nice and friendly and helpful.not all of them could speak english though.the food was generally good with a good selection.if you only like british type food you won,t like the food inthis hotel.the clientle at this hotel are mostly french and german so be prepared to be up early if you want a sunbed by the pool.a good alternative is to get a ticket from reception for free sunbeds and parasols at the private oasis beach which has a bar and cafe.the entertainment at night in the hotel is a singer/keyboardplayer singing the same songs everynight.the nightlife is cafebar style with morocan music and belly dancers the norm.overall i would recomend this hotel as a good place to stay while in agadir.
