... than they had started, and her bed drenched! Luckily we have a spare bed in our room.
The evening meal was not as good as previous but we finally got some cous cous, however I still think the Ainsley Harriet Moroccan medley you buy from waitrose was better!
Desert came in the form of Moroccan tea and pastries. The tea smelt like mint sauce - yum but tasted ...
Woke up and decided to have a morning off from yoga to let my body have a rest and recover - feeling a tad achy to say the least.
Breakfast was the usual cereal, yoghurt and a smoothie made with banana meaning I couldn't have any.... they seem to be ignoring my request for a berry based one! Then it was down to the beach for a morning of surfing! Actually managing to get up and stay up on the board now woo...there's a surfer chick in me somewhere! ...
Woke up, yoga and then pleasantly surprised to have pancakes and fruit for breakfast.
Went to the souk up the road from us - it was amazing the transformation! Until today the area had looked completely desolate with a few broken boxes but at 6am this morning the place was transformed into a hundreds of stalls selling everything ...
... the epicenter, and was felt all the way to Portugal. It destroyed the Medina of Agadir and it has remained barren, for remembrance. Our tour took us to the site and there are still bodies buried under the rocks. We then went into the town and we were able to walk thru a souk, where you could purchase & barter EVERYTHING, from olives, spices, clothing, furniture to even satellite dishes!!! We were glad to get back to the ship...but then had to do ...

The countryside along the way was dry, rugged and arid - yet beautiful. Everywhere there where tough olive trees out of which the famous Argan olive oil is produced. At some places people sat beside the street trying ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jacaranda Golf Hotel Agadir
J'ai passé les vacances de Noël 2004 à l'hôtel Jacaranda à Agadir et c'était absolument merveilleux. La piscine est superbe et elle était assez chaude pour nager chaque jour (bien loin de Birmingham...) Tout l'ensemble est de toute première catégorie, les chambres, le bâtiment et les jardins.
We've just returned from a holiday in Morocco, and have no hesitation
My wife and I stayed last week at this small hotel some 4 km out of Agadir. Our hostess, Mme. Butz, greeted us personally on our arrival. If you want a tranquil oasis where you are not hassled by street sellers, night club noise and general city bustle, this is the hotel for you. It was a short bus ride (20p) or a short taxi ride (£1.30) from the ceentre of Agadir. The hotel is well placed (500m) from the Medina of Agadir, where one can buy all sorts of interesting objects, clothing, etc. The service was excellent all week and our hostess joined us for dinner on several occasions, taking the trouble to explain what spices she'd used, and how the meal was prepared. The kitchens were absolutely spotless and we were totally relaxed by our stay. It was a good base from which to explore and we took a two-day trip to Marrakesh and Essouira, which is a must. All in all, it was a lovely holiday spent in a fine hotel set in immaculate gardens - ten out of ten!
My partner and I stayed at the Jacaranda in January of this year. May I firstly point out that the rating we have given this hotel is in no way a reflection to the service we received at the hotel as this was excellent, as was the food.
We stayed at the Jacaranda on the first few nights of our Honeymoon having flown into Agadir airport. We choose the hotel because it is quite close to the airport and looked like a nice spot to reflect on our wedding for few days. This proved to be the case.
Das Jacaranda Golf Hotel liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe von drei Golfplätzen, die mit Taxi oder Shuttle leicht zu erreichen sind. Das Haus und die wunderbare, exotische Gartenanlage mit Pool sind sehr gepflegt. Das Frühstück in der Morgensonne ist ein Genuß.
Das Restaurant bietet eine anspruchsvolle Küche, die auch als
Halbpension gebucht werden kann.
Die deutsche Besitzerin Frau C. Butz kümmert sich sehr aufmerksam um ihre Gäste.
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
This Hotel is the perfect place for people who want to relax and enjoy good and healthy food or for people who play golf.
Christmas in Morocco
I spent Christmas 2004 in Jacaranda Hotel Agadir and it was absolutely marvellous.The pool is wonderful and it was warm enough to swim every day-a long way from Birmingham.The whole set up is top class the food, the rooms the hotel building and the gardens.
There is a great artisan centre about 100 yards from the hotel the Medina d'Agardir with a small admission charge which can be used for several days. Here you will see the fine Moroccan craftsmen in Filigree, several types of wood thuja and I think almond maybe not,m and shoes and sklippers made before your eyes with absolutely no pressiurte or hassle to buy, strange for Morocco or Agadir.
I would go back again but the better half is stuck on the Canaries.
