Oasis Hotel Agadir
Travel Blogs from Agadir
... I opted to just stay in the rocks in the sun. It looked like a couple of the shacks there were accommodation so some people must have been staying out there.
After a while we were back on the road back towards the coast. The N1 road follows the Atlantic coast and the scenery is quite stunning, especially the contrast between the dusty brown rocks and sand dunes compared with the deep blue of the Atlantic ...
... quite a bit. Afterwards we headed back towards the coast and to the Souss Massa National Park. It extends along the banks of the Wadi Massa (river). It was quite surreal seeing the extreme green of the riverbanks and surrounding palm groves compared to the arid desert. In winter there are a lot of birds who migrate here including flamingos. On this day however we didn’t see much of anything. We then went to Sidi Moussa ...
... sea and inflated an airplane life jacket. We're having to check out at 11 am tomorrow and our taxi doesn't leave until 5:45 so we'll have to sort something out. Planning to stop off in A&E on the way home to get Sarah's shoulder checked out. Hopefully it's quiet at 4am on a Friday ...
Dan and I hit the dirt roads south of Agadir today and had a great time pretending we were in the Dakar rally. The carts were limited but we still hit ~30 mph across the countryside. (and some of that wasn't sideways). Wish they could have gone faster though. Fishing tomorrow. Really trying to pack it in now as we leave Thursday ...
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.

Historical Traveler Reviews Oasis Hotel Agadir
Fue mi primera vez en Marruecos y me decepcionó que el hotel no tenía aire acondicionado que funcionara, mientras que el folleto decía que tenía. Reservamos media pensión, pero cenamos fuera casi todas las noches, ya que la comida era muy mala, con poca variedad. La zona del hotel no era la mejor, con gente durmiendo en callejones y rebuscando comida entre la basura. Varias mujeres se quejaron de acoso si se atrevían a salir solas. Las cajas fuertes de las habitaciones no funcionaban, en ninguna. Dicho esto, el hotel estaba limpio y el personal era amable.
After reading the previous reviews, we were expecting the worst, but our stay was much nicer than expected.
A lovely stay...
We really enjoyed our holiday at the Oasis. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you and the hotel itself is top notch. We couldn't fault it.
The location is great for the beach, literally just across the road, a short walk. Restaurants and shops are just as close too.
Premier séjour au Maroc. Déçu que l'hôtel n'ait pas la clim comme l'annonçait la brochure. Nous avions réservé en demi pension mais avons dîné a l'extérieur presque tous les soirs tellement la nourriture était mauvaise et peu variée. L'hôtel n'est pas des mieux situés: il y a des gens qui dorment dans les ruelles et qui fouillent les poubelles à la recherche de nourriture. Plusieurs femmes se sont plaintes d'être accostées si elles sortaient seules la nuit. Les coffres forts des chambres ne fonctionnaient dans aucune des chambres. Cela dit, l'hôtel était propre et le personnel sympathique.
I booked my holiday before visiting Trip Advisor so when i read these reviews I was shocked and dreading what the hotel would be like as these reviews hardly rate it well. All i can say is I don't know whether these reviewees are used to 5* luxury or something but the hotel is lovely and the good things about it far out weigh the bad.
I've just arrived back from a week in Agadir ( or should I say Skegness?) Having spent a week in Marrakech before heading back to Agadir for the final week of my holiday I was looking forward to a relaxing break by the sea. I was disappointed on arrival and by the third day just wanted to go home. The hotel has no working air conditioning, on the 2nd night we were finally provided with a fan, only to find out to plug it in we had to unplug the tv or fridge (only 3 plugs in the room) The 3rd was exposed and in the bathroom of all places! We found ourselves in a room at the front of the hotel looking out on to the beach - great we thought - soon changed our minds when we realised the road was the main one through Agadir and we were kept awake until 5 in the morning by the music being played on the beach and the road traffic of cars beeping and police whistles, the music finally stopped the night before we left for home. The rooms to the back of the hotel - with the pool view (away from the road) we noticed on the 4th day have double glazing - we weren't that lucky. The pool is smaller than it looks in the brochure and there are not many sunbeds so be prepared to get up early - we found 730 was the latest you could leave it, before they were covered in towles and taken for the day! The pool its self was somewhere i decided not to venture - it looked dirty! Oh and don't be fooled by the no diving, no football sign - the pool staff are very good at providing entertainment doing just these things to the sounds of crazy frog playing from the poolside stereo! On Day 4 we awoke to banging, one of the lounges was being transformed.
First time in Morocco, dissapointed that the hotel had no working air conditioning as the brochure said it had. We booked half board, but ate out most evenings as the food was very poor with little variety. The area of the hotel was not the best with people sleeping rough in the alleyways and rooting in the local bins for food. Several women complained of harrasment if they ventured out alone. Room safes were not working in any rooms. Having said all that, the hotel was clean and the staff friendly.
We arrived at the Hotel out of season so it was very quiet.
I stayed at the Oasis last week and was more than happy with the
service provided. The hotel was spotless and the staff very anxious to please. The bedrooms are pleasant and very well kept. Meals were of good quality . The swimming pool area was well maintained despite the many cats and the evening visit of the seagulls. I travelled with Sunway
Holidays Ireland and they provided an excellent service.
