Iberostar Founty Beach
Travel Blogs from Agadir
Agadir is a great town situated on the Atlantic Ocean, surf crashing, sand, nice hotel, quite an upgrade from Ouarzazate.
We walked out from the hotel to find a place to eat the first night, too expensive, by Moroccan terms at the hotel, and had a pizza in a little bistro. The closer we move up towards the north of Morocco the more French …
... 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 ...
... in Morocco. In 1960 a big earthquake flattened the whole town so a new modern one was built in its place. We went to the Vallee des Oiseaux which is a long narrow green space in the middle of city filled with aviaries occupied by exotic birds and a small zoo with monkeys, gazelles and goats. After a bit more wondering we finally found a tour operator that was a) open and b) spoke English. We booked a two day 4X4 tour departing ...
Nice day today. Started off cloudy and cool. Fortunately the fish prefer the misty conditions and we had more success in the morning. We all caught fish and Dan had a good swim. We shared the boat with a group of 9 French. (Bordeaux apparently). Some appeared to be flight crew as one lept ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Iberostar Founty Beach Agadir
Just got back from Iberostar (Founty Beach) Hotel, Agadir, Morocco. First time in Morocco and was very impressed with hotel (although not so much with Morocco). Hotel staff very helpful and looked after us but did get fleeced by cab drivers taking us to wrong place on purpose & shop keepers wanted extra money after doing the deal. Had some great trips around Morocco but wasn't sure what to pack clotheswise. Had heard best to cover up so as kaftans are in fashion now took a few of them. Found didn't need to as everyone in normal strappy tops, shorts etc. Just thought you might want to know.
I went on this holiday with my boyfriend, as a break away from work and as a celebration for completing my exams. We chose the resort for its lively reviews yet I'm sorry to say I was actually very disappointed. I am a well travelled person, and am normally very happy to overlook small problems and do not let them affect my holiday as a whole, yet I found this to be impossible by the end of my fortnight at the Founty Beach.
We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Ibrostar Founty Beach. The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away from the hotel to go out and about, we had everything we needed.It was so hot and busy there, we couldn't wait to get back to the peace and tranquility of the hotel.
Good Family Hotel
We have just returned from a weeks all-inclusive stay at the Iberostar Founty Beach and would recommend it. The hotel facilities were excellent and the large comfortable rooms were spacious and kept very clean. The pools were excellent but if you want a more peaceful day head for the hotels beach. The beach is guarded by hotel security men. You will be hassled to buy something if you head for the sea.
Our only moan would be the food. Although most of it was good, menus did seem to be repeated quite often. The lunch at the poolside bar was not very exciting. The bar staff at this bar were also sometimes slow to serve.
This would be a great hotel to take young kids as they are fussed over by the staff. The staff in general were excellent.
I have just returned from a weeks all inclusive holiday (party of 4 adults and 3 children all 5 and under) at the Iberostar Founty Beech in Agadir, the hotel was amazing and very clean, the staff are all very friendly, polite and could'nt do enough for you.
My family and I stayed at the Iberostar in Agadir for 7 nights in May 2005 as a family party of 8. The hotel was well maintained, clean and generally ran like clockwork. The air-conditioned rooms were also clean and well looked after with a comprehensive information pack to be found within. Each room has a telephone and all the hotel services are only the press of a button away. There is also a very efficient and reasonably priced laundry service. There is a TV in each room but it only has the BBC world service in English. Good internet facilities can also be found within the hotel. The room cleaning staff were very pleasant and efficient and they actually seemed very happy at their work. There is a minibar in each room which is only stocked upon demand. There is also a safety deposit box in each room for passports and valuables which costs an additional £1.00 or so daily.
The hotel looks amazing when you arrive and the staff who deal with despatching your baggage to your room were friendly and efficient but for the rest of our stay here (last October for two weeks) we were very disappointed for several reasons.
I have now spent 2 trips at the Iberostar Founty Beach in Agadir with my family in the past 4 months, with a child under 1. According to the English reps, this gets the best scores on the food and overall accommodation. It is beach situated, and has a private beach area too, and is far enough down from town not to be affected by any noise.

Stay 12th to 19th February 2005.
Fantastic hotel. Great large rooms & bathrooms. Good entertainment day & evening.
Excellent (Italian) musician 20.00 to 20.15 and again after the show to 23.00.
All inclusive very good value. International food which was good but not a great deal of variety.
Good sunny weather 22° during the day. Very pleasant indeed.
Taxis are cheap but the cars are rather old.
Great fun bargaining at the souks. The Moroccans are very friendly and welcoming.
Visit the Medina a few kilometres outside the town.
