... 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 ...
... then the fish itself but I did and I am proud! :p
On route we stopped at a place which made argan oil which was quite interesting! Especially since I have been using the stuff on my hair for years! Can't say I was too fond of it as a tea tho - yuk!
After a few hours at the valley we headed into Agadir on a booze run in order to purchase beer for ...
... was interesting - tried meditation for the first time. This basically consisted of 20 minutes listening to a Frenchman tell me to imagine a purple light with a smiling face in my heart pumping joy to all the organs in my body! In other words I spent 20 minutes punching myself in order to prevent me bursting out with laughter!
Dinner was probably my favourite so far, a vegetable curry ...
... unable to move, Sarah would have blocked the road with balcony furniture thrown from the 4th floor anyway However we were offered a ground floor room next to the pool and it is vastly superior in everyway.. So the day has been rescued and we are planning our day trips for the days ahead. Actually we're sitting in the restaurant all on our respective Apple products and not talking to each other.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kenzi Europa Agadir
I have just got back from a weeks stay in this hotel. it defo aint 5 star by British Standards. I went AI and was not very happy with the food as it was quite repetitive. considering that there is an aray of fruit in agadir i was shocked that all we ever got was apples, pears and strawberries and if u were lucky a banana. the last nite we got water melon.
This hotel is in a perfect position in Agadir. One step away from the centre of the beach.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Kenzi Europa and enjoyed it so much we are thinking of returning again next Easter. The hotel is in a great position just across the road from a superb 6 mile stretch of beach and there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants nearby.
We stayed at the Kenzi the 1st week in April. The holiday and hotel did what it said on the tin - a cheap break away for some sunshine and relaxation.
As the other reviews state clearly this ain't no 5 star. I have to say there were a lot of draw backs with this hotel but heck, we had a good time by just getting on with it. We had a spacious double room and got 'upgraded' on request to a sea facing room. What they didn't tell us that the view was totally obscured by a building site(photo attached). If you craned your neck a bit though the view was good. V. well located near the beach. The hotel decor is like some 1970s nightmare - who ever was their mural designer had obviously spent too many nights in on the moroccan black.
The location is probably the only 5 star aspect of this hotel.
STAR RATING - not really a 5 star by UK standards but is a nice little hotel with friendly staff. It's more of a good 3 star by UK standards.
yes dont go there.we have just come home from the kenzi europa hotel witch is ment to be a 5 star i can tell you this certantly not the case more it is like a 3 star with 2 star food. we were all inclusive and had to eat out every night as the food was so poor.saled was served morning noon and night there was not much to choose from as in regards to hot food as most was ether luck warm raw in the middle or simply tough as old boots or simply mushy.food included fryed liver,watery soup,RAW chicken kebabs, dry and warm saled,and tough steak,to much more to mention. The hotel was clean and neat but looked like it had'nt been re-furb since it was built in the seventes there was hardly ever any one serving at the ONE small bar that would serve warm beer and soft drinks all day long. POOL was nice but only had sixty sun beds as this was a 230 room hotel it was no where near the amount that was needed.staff were unfreandly and only had time for the germans where the british had to what.it all so seemed to go down big with the older holiday maker (sarga) as was the way the hotel was theamed.weather was good sunny every day all i can say is eat out our you stomack will sufer there good places in yhe town try scampy's near hotel camel.
Definately NOT 5*
This is NOT 5* rooms are adquate and quite reasonable size but management refused to turn air conditioning on ...even though in 30°C plus it was not the season to turn on!!!!
Even in high season I was told only turned on in evening about 6!!
Pool staff good, others very poor and I was sure I was sworn at in Arabic when I insisted in having another table - they were available- laid up outside for breakfast having been told "WAIT"
buffet breakfast and lunch booring and poor, do not eat here
