... 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 ...
... 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 ...
... tomorrow. Such a lovely place with massive houses - quite a contrast to the little village we are in which is also completely dry so no alcohol in the shops and it can't be consumed anywhere that doesn't have a license!
Back at the villa it was the usual, evening yoga followed by dips and nibbles and then dinner! Hopefully il be back on a surf board ...
First to wake up this morning so I could skype Tom, so nice and quiet in the morning (although a part of me is missing mums manic hoovering sessions at 6.30 every morning)!
Morning yoga session was painful due to a majorly burnt stomach - luckily it seems to have calmed down on my arms, legs and back. Had to pass up on the optional 30 minutes extra as I could no longer move without searing pain shooting across my ...

Not being a shopper I was shocked to find Id spent a couple of hours in the place. Time to leave and make tracks for home. I got a petite taxi back from the souq, handy!
The following morning dawned bright, time for breakfast and a walk to the promanade. The hotel breakfast hits the spot well, plenty of bread; crossaints, ...

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.
