... 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, ...
... I didn't know why I was still talking like this and she replied "I know, top of the morning to you" haha I do believe that is actually Irish!
After yoga we got ready and headed to the BBQ at the Auberge where we sat on a roof and enjoyed some life music. We actually got meat as well which was a pleasant surprise and got to try some local beer (speciale). Really good evening but absolutely shattered now so off to bed I go...last full day in Morocco ...
Woke up, yoga and then pleasantly surprised to have pancakes and fruit for breakfast.
Went to the souk up the road from us - it was amazing the transformation! Until today the area had looked completely desolate with a few broken boxes but at 6am this morning the place was transformed into a hundreds of stalls selling everything ...
... to find me a room all the same. Got one overlooking the pool, happy days!
It began to rain but soon stopped so I headed for a wander to grab lunch, I found a gem of a place, I got heaps of bread and dips, olives, tuna salad, a homemade burger with chips; orange juice and coffee, all for the grand sum of 42 dirham.
After that, time to hit the souq; the main market place. Its a sight to behold; you can get all sorts ...
As I said earlier the flight to London was thankfully uneventful, I was worried that there would be more snow in London and there would be delays or worse cancelations as had happened several times in previous few weeks. When it comes to flights, boring = good!!
But this was not a trip of choice or pleasure, it was one of necessity, I had to be present for my citizenship ceremony which had taken me the last 3 ½ years and over £3000 to obtain. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Blue Sea Le Tivoli Agadir
I thougt that this hotel was lovely for the price that we paid (£25 per night with brekkie). The rooms were clean with balcony and sea view. The breakfast was above average and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool area was nice and never too busy. There was nothing much to do in the evening at the hotel but we never really drink in hotel bars anyway.
My husband and I stayed at Le Tivoli for the last week of August/beginning September for our wedding anniversary.
Treated like Kings and Queens
This hotel was excellent, and can be booked through the Panorama company. It was very clean, and noting was too much toruble for the staff.
I'm usually very fussy where I go abroad, but if someone paid for me to go right this minute back, I would without hesitation.
I enjoyed my stay at Le Tivoli. The rooms were large and very clean - great shower - the pool area was nice, the food fine. The staff were very friendly. It was a great place for a quiet week in the sun. If you want all inclusive/english style entertainment, then this probably isn't the place for you. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. The hotel had a nice mix of different nationalities. Generally, I found Moroccan people very pleasant and got no more hassle than you would do at my local market on a Saturday, let alone a night out in Romford......
I returned yesterday from the Tivoli and can confirm some previous review comments, namely tired decor, no minibars,poor aircon (switches on but does little!),pool umbrellas just holding together etc.
We have stayed at the Tivoli Hotel 4 times over the last 3 years. The rooms are of a generous size and comfortable. However, the decor is now beginning to look a little 'tired'. Our last stay there was in October 2004 and we decided then that we would make a change on our next visit. We have just had another week in Morocco, but did not stay at the Tivoli as we thought the price was too high for the standard of accommodation. We actually stayed at the Kamal, a much smaller 3 star property which we will definitely return to. The sun beds and umbrellas at the Tivoli were definitely in need of replacement and there is a very scruffy 'stage' area by the pool, with torn curtains hanging down, which has never been used while we have been there. The gardens are beautiful and the pool is great with a separate children's area. The staff, on the whole, are pleasant. Meals are buffet style and they do get a bit boring as they tend to serve similar food each night. Entertainment is poor. No atmosphere in the evening at all. We have never had a problem with food poisoning or upset stomach from food at the hotel. We did notice last week when we walked past the Tivoli that the outside has been repainted, so maybe they are renovating. We did go to have a look at the pool though and the broken umbrellas are still there. Now we have found the Kamal, we probably will not return to the Tivoli.
We stayed for a week at the hotel in April 2004. The hotel and pool area are pleasant enough but, right from the start, the restaurant did not impress. However, on day 2 I got a severe attack of food poisoning which lasted several days. I guess one must occasionally expect things like this in countries like Morocco but we had no similar problems anywhere else on our holiday. Furthermore, it subsequently transpired that several others in our party had suffered the same problem at the Tivoli and, so one of the local reps told me, in 2003 they had a major outbreak of food poisoning which affected many of the people staying at the hotel.
PS Very quiet in the evenings - we were forced to go out to other local neighbouring hotels to find any 'atmosphere'.
We've just returned from a week at this hotel. Great food, lovely pool, huge rooms (slept 4 and baby). The gardens were gorgeous and the staff friendly. We'll be returning again.
A great place to relax in the sun.
My husband & I stayed at this hotel and we had a wonderful stay. Staff were polite and friendly, the rooms were of a decent size and decor and the hotel grounds were really pleasant. The hotel is situated a small walk from the town & markets and in all we were really happy with value for money. I would recommend this hotel and would definitly choose no other if going back to Agadir.
I stayed in the Tivoli Hotel in july 2004 and for a four star hotel, it is very basic...air con was not working, hotel refused to give me a minibar despite having kids, the food was always the same, the staff very unprofessional.....and the hotel manager was arrested the day I left for fraud !!!!!!!!
The hotel belong to Driss Basri, the Terror, the ex Interior minister under Hassan 2, I dont have to tell you how he made is money.....I believe it is not a 4 star but a 3 star. Dont go there, especially if you have kids !!!!!
