... him some money and off he trotted. I never carry the money with me but he'd already asked our names. So when I said I had nothing and Sean had it. He called Sean and then asked me to give it to him!! From there we headed back jnto the medina for a haircut for Sean!! In broken language we negotiated a price and Sean had his hair, eyebrows and moustache trimmed much to ...

Riad Inna - Marrakech Suite. without breakfast, 265dh/$32
....We said goodbye to the great people at Riad Thais. We felt a little bad about changing hotels. But we planned to linger in town and the rooms there were just too cramped for us to be totally comfortable. So we moved over to Riad Inna. Abudla and ...
so I just spent an hour an a half writing up the trip to Marrakech and Essaouira and lost it when I wen to load the photos...
Otherwise we chilled in the sea and pool.
Dan and I have a bit of fun planned tomorrow with some dune buggying (and I'm driving) :o)
And today we booked the fishing trip for Wednesday. 5 hours at sea on the last day of Ramadan, boy I bet we'll be popular.
... end I decide to go for it.
I start in Charaf, down a boulevard which was just an empty highway lined by cliffs back in the 90s… now it’s shops and mid-rise apartments all the way. There still are day housecleaners (and who knows what else) waiting for a potential employer to drive by, just like back then… so I guess some things don’t change.
I continue on through Agadir’s ...
... visit. Spent the day by the beach and headed back in the early afternoon to wandered around town again. Not much to do but it was a nice town to go just wandering around in.
Apears that most Morrocians get around by motor or push bike. I guess its cheap and makes it possible to get through some of the narrow streets in the medina. One thing that had me wandering as I walked around during the day was why the motor bikes had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Club Almoggar Agadir
The hotel is a 3 star hotel consisting of a number of 3 storey blocks each withabout 30 rooms giving a toal of must be over 400 rooms. Some of the rooms are fairly newly refurbished others older. We were in one of the older rooms which was basic but certainly adequate seeing as we did not go on holiday to spend much time in the room. The room was clean and kept clean by the maid with towels changed every day. In the two weeks we were there i saw one cockroach in the room and a couple of small spiders which for a country with this climate is excellent. The hotel complex is built on the side of a hill with reception being at the top there a lots of stairs but due to the layout of the hotel a lift would be impractical. therefore it is not suitable really for anyone with mobility problems. However for a small tip the proter will carry your luggage to your room- and is happy to accept a tip in english or euro if you do not have any small dirhem. The hotel bar is reasonable with soft drinks being 10 Dirhem (about 60p) but bigger than a UK can. A small beer is just over a pound (18 dirhem). The hotel is either half board or all inclusive (though it was all French and german that werre all-in). The pool area is not as big as it could be for a hotel fo this size but it was adequate a big square divided into 2 very shallow pools a third shallow pool leading into the deep pool which was about 25 m by 10m. You had to be up early to reserve a sunbed as by 8 they were all gone. The restaurant was good but you needed to avoid it after 9 in the morning for breakfast as it was too busy- the evening meal was held in two sittings we always went to the first one and had no problems getting a table. The food was generally good with a lot iof fish being served at the evening meal though it was a buffet with other food as well. I tended to stick to the moroccan food served up and never had a bad meal, they also had some food that catered for my daughters (fussy eaters). Half board entitles you to one evening meal per week either in the morccan restaurant in the hotel or the italian on the seafront. You had to book these in the morning. We did not eat in either as the moroccan one didn't cater for my fussy children and the italian one had a very limited choice.
Well we arrived at our hotel on the 21st June it was around eleven in the evening and it took forever for the receptionists to acknowlege we were there to get our keys.
Well after reading the comments on this hotel, I did not expect a lot but was pleasantly surprised. First impressions of the hotel were that is was large and very clean, the rooms were spacious and we had a lovely sea view as requested, however we had to climb 52 steps from the road to the room to get the sea view, the lower rooms had pool view with fewer steps, worth bearing in mind if you stay at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the maids did an excellent job even providing us with fresh flowers one day which was a pleasant surprise. There was entertainment nightly but this was late for those staying with young children, the childrens club is active but you may need to check with the animation staff what is on when as our son only used the mini golf each afternoon. There was a currency exchange facility which was useful but no signs to say no currency exchange on Sundays at all, also you cannot change travellers cheques on Sundays at the western union in the resort, so take some cash just in case of emergencies. There is a cash machine in the hotel which takes english cards to that was a bonus. The waiters are all very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was excellent but the hotel has a strict policy on not taking food out so if you have an early start, make it even earlier for breakfast. The meal at night was fine, a tangine of various meats, a cold cut or hot joint and a variety of fish on the barbeque (changed nightly). All the food is beautifully presented and the chefs even did butter sculptures which were amazing, the food was always hot and tasty if sometimes a little odd combinations. I have never tasted cous cous like it, this was served at least 3 times per week, the food is on a buffet basis with fresh fruit served at both breakfast and dinner. We made use of the snack bar by the pool and this was also of good quality and reasonable value. The pizzeria is worth a visit, there is a free meal included with the half board but this is a fixed menu, 4 seasons pizza, chicken escalope and icecream but still very nice. The hotel is literally accross the road from the beach and a lovely view of the Kasbah can be seen from most of the rooms, it is within walking distance of the main strip and a short taxi ride from the town centre. The noddy train or orient express is very pricy but worth it for the children, would recommend one ride on it but not worth a daily ride, use the taxis. Beware shop keepers inviting you in to "look around" this is a lure to get you in and then trying to get you to buy something you really do not want. Well worth a visit is the city zoo or bird garden, dirt cheap and lots to see. Well worth a visit and only 15 minutes walk from the hotel. The pool was clean and attended from 9am to 6pm with huge shallow section for the kids and a section just as big for the swimmers. All in all a very nice hotel in a good location.
rooms were spotless and the hotel staff all very friendly.
We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Al-Moggar.Two adults - children aged 8 and 12.
We went from feb 10th to feb 17th, weather great, 25-30 degrees all week. brilliant welcome and organisation by the Sunset rep.
Hotel fine, restaurant and food bad
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the AL Moggar. Overall the holiday was fine. The staff are friendly, rooms clean enough however the buffet restaurant is appauling. Dirty table cloths which resemble old fashioned blankets, grey napkins which should be white. The food is not apetising salad not kept in chiller etc and the general decor, chairs etc very poor. We chose to eat out most nights. Food outside very nice and reasonably priced. The hotel is in a nice position on the beach however a fair walk if you want to lay on sunbeds.
The Moroccan people are very friendly and do not hassle you as i thought they might.
Must do trip is overnight in Marakecch no place like that on earth !
Weather for february brilliant sunshine every day!
Good hotel and location
We have just come back from 2weeks at the Al Moggar the rooms were spotless and well looked after, with aircon/heaters (no charge). The food was good but not hot enough (cold plates) and catered for all tastes. The staff were all frendly and most spoke some english. Entertainment most evenings. The hotel is at the far end of the resort but withing walking distance of the center,a good position for the promonade, with good eating places either side of the hotel entrance, we enjoyed our stay here and would go back, a good value for money hotel.
Have just booked a holiday for 2006 and twas my first time at using the tripadvisor facility. Being curious I looked at where we honeymooned last year to see what other people thought of the Al Moggar. Wow. Cannot believe the poor review given by the last guy. Perfect reception and concierge were on hand to carry your luggage wherever you needed to go - all we did was tip them 10 dirham now n again (70p) - what's wrong with that?
