... wash - not so yum and the pastries were actually more like shortbread biscuits.
Next came the issue of packing the rucksack again in preparation for our departure. We have to be out of the room before breakfast and yet we have a morning to catch our final few waves before we head to the airport so what to keep out? Hopefully I've not put anything needed to the bottom of the ...
... to going home and being able to hold my own amongst the surfers down at Vazon haha!
Back the villa a little earlier than usual so I could sit by the pool for an hour or two and catch up with what's going on at home, then it was upstairs to shower and get ready for an hour of yoga before the evening festivities.
Upstairs I was still speaking in a cockney accent as Red out surf instructor truly believes that's how we all talk! I joked to ...

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 ...
... well, but until now had not experienced it.. Not 5 minutes into the journey and the lady in the seat behind me was hacking up and puking into a plastic bag. This continued intermittently for about 3 hours, no appetite for me then at the break point in Tiznit!
Later though I did share what I had to eat with a lovely berber woman sitting next to me, the tradition here being that you offer three times with food, the first two will ...
... bottles of this delicious, golden oil. Its common practice that people sell stuff on the side of roads and even motorways. They just sit there all day with a bag of whatever they sell and when you drive past they wave it at you. We passed hills, valleys and finally the coast. The temperature plummeted to a pleasant 20 odd degrees again and passed many small towns/villages with some great looking beaches.
Finally made it to Agadir in ...

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
