Breakfast choices are limited and when bread in the morning is a mixture of fresh bread and the leftovers from the previous day I would not call this a 4-star hotel, a 2+ or a -3 would be a better rating. Staff have problems speaking English but are friendly, rooms are clean but nothing special, the shower was for example more like a drip. For the price you pay you get value, but the 4 star rating is very misleading.

Can't wait to stay there again

Having recently stayed at a brand new 4/5* hotel in Egypt I was reminded of my stay at Le Tivoli. The staff were polite and numerous. They were helpful and responsive and appreciated my attempts at Arabic. The staff made a fuss of the children which was nice. The Morrocans are very friendly people as a whole. The accomodation was clean, worn in some areas but not in anyway that detracted from the overall 4 star impression. The room, a family room was enormous with fridge and TV, it was clean and comfortable.
We don't bother with tour reps generally so the lack of input didn't detract from the holiday.
A nativity was organised for Christmas day which involved live animals and live Mary and Joseph.
Christmas Dinner which was at no extra charge was lovely.
The entertainment was stunning.
Being a bit lazy we rarely managed to be up in time for breakfast, which was ok if a bit limited.
The hotel is surrounded by a wide selection of restaurants and shops. It is within walking distance from the beach.
I came across this web site whilst looking to re-book at Le Tivoli so yes I would stay there again.

This hotel has nice area's garden wise, and the pool area is lovely, our room was a suite with twin beds and seating area with coffee table TV, and a nice balcony. The two things I disliked about this hotel were food wasn't nice, esp. evening meals, gave us a bad stomach for a few days. The foyer of the hotel could have been better also, the seating in that area needed a good clean, hotel was in a fairly clean area, with a few shops selling essentials and gifts and a chemist. Agadir beach is large, but has already been said, the ladies on that beach were Moroccan with kids and there were in full dress.

I stayed here with my wife and 8 years old child for 10 nights and paid 565 Eur for a *huge* suite and half board. I must say that I wouldn't be much surprised or unhappy and wouldn't consider myself cheated if either I would have paid more or if the hotel wasn't so good. Although I don't remember anything out of the "good, but common 4 stars", it's a nice place to stay, nothing too fancy, with friendly staff. Its location is fairly good, in a place not too busy, but with a choice of cafes and restaurants. Like many others hotels in any international resort, it's a little away from the center of the town, but in that respect is better than others, namely the newer ones. The beach is about 500 meters, which can be a major con, specially for western women - not that I noticed that they can be harrassed, but as Moroccan women go fully dressed to the beach, my wife found herself like a weird being in the beach.
Our suite had view to a order of the garden and to the sea, and was by far the bigger one where we ever stayed.
The food is a little bit boring after a few days, again not bad nor good. Every night there was a little free show by the pool, featuring mainly local artists, mostly folcloric.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Le Tivoli

Le Tivoli a fantastic hotel

from Carrotblue
We have just returned from a two week stay at Le Tivoli and what a fantastic holiday we all had (myself my wife and daughter) Rooms clean, hotel staff friendly, food plenty and excellent no complaints and the resturant staff smiling and very courteous, recommend a trip to Marrakech, market square an amazing place. Agadir is a quaint town no hassle, enjoy the souks, meet and talk to the locals. A wonderful country go and enjoy yourselves as much as we did. Date of holiday 2nd to 16th april 2006.

Not bad

from Continent_Jumper
Location

The hotel is not far from the seafront and is a 20min stroll into the centre of the town. A 20min walk the other way will take you to Souk El Had (indoor market) for all your souvenirs and to see where the locals hang out.

Room

The room was pleasantly large with a separate bed and living room area and a good size bathroom. The room had some nice authentic furniture but the carpet was grubby (note to hoteliers everywhere - don't choose light coloured carpets!). Our balcony faced towards the sea which was very nice.

Food

Pretty poor, for a 4 star I expected more than this. We only stayed B&B which was a good move, we tried the dinner once and that was enough. Just a really poor selection and very bland, nothing remotely authentically Moroccan.

The breakfast was a little better, the traditional baked bread was lovely though the croissants were often cold. Personally, I can't stand to see cold meats at that time of the day but if you like that sort of thing then you'll be ok.

Staff

Excellent reception staff, very helpful. The restaurant staff made you feel very welcome.

The cleaning staff were ok but as said before, the room could do with being redecorated.

Excursions

Unless you want to sit by the pool for the whole of your holiday I recommend going on some trips. We went with a local agency to Tafouant & Tiznit and Marrakesh, Casablanca and Essaouria. I'd recommend all these as you will see the 'real' Morocco, though Casablanca is a 7 hour drive along precarious mountain roads, beautiful rolling fields and stunning buildings. Go to Marrakech for souvenirs, the prices are slightly cheaper than Agadir and visit the huge mosque in Casablanca, absolutely amazing!

The country

Be prepared to haggle, for everything! Even your food. This can be quite stressful especially for Westerners who are used to paying a fixed price. We gave up buying a traditional Moroccan lamp and mirror from the various Souks and shops we visited, which was a shame. You have to have a fixed idea of what you want to pay and don't budge, just walk away. This usually does the trick but £60 for lamp a local can buy for £5-10 is ridiculous. I'm a little annoyed at the many 'green' tourists who go to Morocco and pay the inflated prices, it means the rest of us get priced out of buying souvenirs.

We had an unpleasant incident at the Agadir Marina (Port), where a local boy tagged along with us and promised to 'take us to his dad's restaurant', we ended up having some very good fish but they charged us £40 to begin with! We argued and got it down to £20, which was still too much. Make sure you fix a price before you eat. I don't mind paying a fair price but some of the locals think you're a tourist so you will pay inflated prices.

You feel very safe in Morocco, just remember it's a Muslim country so make sure you cover arms and legs when out of the hotel. As said before, be prepared to haggle, a rough rule is to go in at a third or quarter of what they say. On the whole the people were very nice and welcoming.

Overall, the hotel was a 3 star place max. I'd recommend Morocco as a destination but try Marrakech or Essaouria as your base.

Better than expected

from Tunisiamad
We returned from the Tivoli Sunday night (19th). Didn't know what to expect (we are used to 4-5* hotels in Tunisia).We'd also read some negative reviews on the Tivoli.
But the hotel was very good. Yes it's not the newest and most modern hotel in Agadit but it's position for the town and the staff all made it an extremely good holiday.
There was only a couple of things that may have let it down. The room was very dark, even in the day with all the lights on. Also we asked to keep our room for late check out - having been told it would be no problem to do so, so made all arrangements to enjoy final day in Agadir and check out 4pm - but then told with a shrug of the shoulders that it was not possible and had to check out 12. Don't mind checking out at 12 but annoyed that was told it wouldn't be problem.

But all in all the Tivoli was a good hotel - nice food, staff, position, pool area.

Would I go again - probably

Good Value

from sousse
Wife & I spent a week here & enjoyed it. Decor a bit tired but room clean, friendly staff. Steps everywhere not for anyone with walking problems. We travelled independantly with British Airways (Excellent) Booked the hotel on the internet took a taxi from the airport for 200 DH. We were able to use the tours provided with the British tour rep.

FANTASTIC HOTEL AND STAFF

from A TripAdvisor Member
me and my mom came back from the tivoli hotel on 12.3.06. We had a fantastic week and couldn't fault a thing.ok, the decor is a little dated but for a third world country and the price you pay, you couldn't find anything much better.The food was very nice and there was always something we liked. To beat it all, we didn't have deli belly at all!The hotel is situated in a great central place for all the amenities and everything was very clean, both inside and outside the hotel.If you are considering going to Le Tivoli, as long as you dont expect 5 star luxury, then you could not find friendlier, more helpful staff than at this hotel. We will definitely be going back.

Hotel was fine but be wary if you have a pushchair

from Manny786
We just got back from a week in Agadir at the Tivoli. The hotel was clean enough and staff reasonably helpful - the main sticking points were the amount of steps and lack of ramps for those of us with prams. The pool was nice but the food at breakfast was mediocre and lacked variety. The kids had a great time in the pool and the weather was great so all in all good time had.

Thank goodness we only stayed one night

from sausageEssex
We travelled to Agadir with Thomson. The hotel was rated as 4 star but we would only give it 2 stars.
We arrived at about 8.30 pm and were taken to a spacious but not particularly clean room. We went off to get some supper in the dingy uninviting dining room - the buffet food was cold and the staff not particularly helpful or welcoming. At about 11pm we went to bed - lumpy uncomfortable bed. The people around us were quiet but the plumbing was not! Every half hour we were awoken by sudden very loud (?air lock) noises. At 2.30 am we could not stand it any more and went to reception to complain - to give them their due, they did move us to another room, but this was just as bad, only this time it was air con noises - even tho we did not have our air con on. We got up early and had a horrible unappetising - cold even at 6.00 am - breakfast. Fortunately, we were moved to another hotel later that day and we would recommend Agadir, but not this hotel. Past its best is a polite way of describing it!

t go there

from carolmathers
really disappointed in this hotel.it was dirty and shabby.our curtains in the bedroom were hanging off the rails,the net curtains were grey with dirt and it had a stained carpet on the floor.Thankfully we were only b&b because breakfast time was chaos.not enough seats,uncleared tables,mediocre food.heard other guests complaining about the choice and quality of food at dinner.the pool area was nice if you managed to get a sunbed but again these were filthy.wouldn't go back if i won holiday in a prize.

Nice Hotel

from Shell07
The Tivoli is a nice hotel to stay in, the decor may be a tiny bit dated and worn in places but the staff, food, and value make up for this.
It is located 10 minutes walk from the beach on a hillside which enables many of the rooms to have pleasant views.

We loved the Tivoli

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had a Mother and Daughter week at the Tivoli and had a wonderfull week. The rooms were clean and attractive and the food was good and varied . My Daughter is a very fussy eater and she found something to enjoy.The staff were exceptionally helpfull and friendly nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definately be going again. Word of warning dont wear a minin skirt out and about attracts
too much attention!!!

Top Local Tips for Agadir

airport taxi transfer we decided to use of the option of a taxi transfer at approx £12 each way even though the transfers by coach at the time of booking were only £20, so that we were there first at the hotel for checkin and on return, at the airport first so we avoided all the coach queues.

Great food served here Try the La Scala restaurant - 5 minutes from hotel - great food at good prices - wine good value too. We were told the King of Morrocco dines here.

La Scalla Very good restaurant
