Dated and tired.

seven of us, four adults and three late teens in three separate rooms have just spent our holiday at this hotel. Decor is very dated and none of our rooms looked anything like the photos. We spent a lot of time in the hotel complex and very little is like the photos on this website. The pool is nice but you have to battle for a sunbed unless you "claim" one early in the morning! To be fair the food was very good, but the overall experience was tainted by the poor standard of the rest of the hotel. Broken showers, broken fridges, non-working TV's and air conditioning with great difficulty getting these put right due to the language barrier, you need to have a good understanding of French if you need/want anything. It does not live up to the Ramada name for quality and service.

Stayed two weeks in December 2008. Very good location, staff very friendly in particular salaam, fatima, alia, amina and others. Would consider staying at Ramada if I go back. My friends were also very impressed at location, facilties etc.

The location was lovely only half hr from airport. The hotel was immaculately clean with well-kept gardens, food was lovely, the only thing was there could have been more variety for children. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. The entertainment team were out of this world they kept the children well entertained (and adults!!!) great fun. The rooms were splendid we had a great pool view. It was a very safe environment best holiday I have had for relaxing so nice that we went back in October and booked again to go with other family members in June 07. Can't wait to go back I have found my perfect destination !!!!!!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Ramada les Almohades Hotel

Fab Hotel

from Robaart
We have stayed in many Agadir 3 star hotels and would say that the Ramada is one of the better ones. The rooms are clean for a 3 star hotel and the food excellent as the choices are diffrent on a daily basis with moroccon theme on thursday. The hotel is ideally situated in the centre so the beach is about 5 mins walk away and taxis are available all day from the front of the hotel. Only downside is the health spa, dont use it however on the same road coming out of the hotel and turning right, walk for about 300 yards and you will see Argane Spa which is a fantastic health spa and well recommended. Be broad minded and smile and get smiled at - it's the moroccon way.

Not too bad but I will not return

from Mkv48
I went to this hotel with 5 other friends in September and was quite disapointed because I had read lots of good reviews on this web site.

First of all, the rooms were nice but not clean at all, stinking dust, lots of things were broken and we had to wait 2 days to get remote control for TV because they did not have enough (4 star hotel !).

Food was ok, but staff were not nice and polite at all except 2 or 3 waiters, being sometimes nearly rude especially at the beauty centre and reception.

The tennis court was really crap but we were desperate to play so...
Otherwise, swimming pool was nice and the hotel is in the centre which is good. Though, I really do not think it is worth it's reputation.
I will definitively not return.

Me and my girlfriend have just visited the Ramada Resort in Agadir and it was absolutely amazing.

Hotel:

The room that we had was very big and was just around the corner from reception and the bar. Luckily for us we was allocated a pool view which was wonderful as you had a very good view of the complex. As we were near the bar and the reception there was a lot of noise, however, this did not bother us one bit as I especially could walk out of my room and get a beer and then walk back within a minute. They were very spacious and your room is made up everyday and towels changes if required. Facilities were excellent and if you do not want to use your towel around the pool, you can ask reception for one and they will give you one to use. You can also get thje remote for the TV there, which if you fancy an early night there is a 24 hour movie channel in English. The cost of the safe in your room is 150 dirhams which is approx £10.00, which is very reasonable for a week. A bit of advice, if you are All Inclusive as we were, when you get a drink from the bar, they will ask you to sign for it but they do that for every drink to establish who is All in and who is Half Board. Personally I would recommend All Inclusive. I would say that staying at the hotel was 80% French people, all with there Zidans T-shits on, licking there wounds :) 15% English and 5% German.

Food:

There was loads to choose from everyday, mostly I had sugar puffs and then an omlette made fresh from the chefs outside. Lunch there was plenty of meats and salads, grilled fish if you like that, which I didnt but no matter how fussy you are, there is something for everyone. I was a bit concerned with what previous people had wrote, however, you cannot expect what you get in this country, it is Morocco after all. Plenty of cakes and fruits if you have got a sweet tooth. Word of warning for getting drinks from the bar, in Morocco it is custom to tip for everything, if you tip the evening bar staff early in your holiday they will remember you and serve you first, thats just the way it is.

Pool and Beach:

Brilliant, if you have kids which like jumping in and splashing about, there are 2 small kid pools, and at the deepest point in the main pool, it is close to 4 metres deep. There is music played around the pool all day from UB40 to Kelly Clarkson to traditonal Moroccon Music. Please be aware that even though there is a strict no saving beds policy, no one takes any notice and I would advise you to get to the pool by 8am with your towel or you will be sunbathing on the grass as there is limited space. TThe beach is just across the road and is massive, I think its about 9km long. Please note my girlfriend and me went for a walk on the Sunday and she had just a bikini top on and she got lots of stares from the morocco lads, all harmless fun but can get quite annoying agter about 30 mins. It is alot quieter during the week.

Weather:

I expected it to be warmer bewteen 12-19 July that we went, however, most of the days were touching 90 odd degrees to cannot complain to much. However, we found that apart from one day, the sun came out anywhere from 10am - 2am. Unfortuntately on one day it did rain a little bit. If you do not like hot summer nights, this is the place to be as the cool atlantic breeze keeps the evenings cool.

Entertainment:

What can I say, if you have kids they will love it and they will make friends with a few nationalities aswell. The guys around the pool all day also do the entertainment at night aswell.

Trips:

These are quite expensive depending on what you want to do, we decided to go on the Catamaran trip but guess what, it was actually foggy in the morning as we left the port. It did clear in the afternoon and we enjoyed a fantastic day. If you go for 2 weeks there is a 2 day trip which goes to Marrakech which looks fantastic and costs about £90 per person. As we were only there for a week we didnt bother but it depends on what you want to do.

As a recommendation and if you fancy a change for one night, please visit the resurant opposite, I cannot rememder the name but it is mostly green. The food is very cheap and is very well presented, and makes a nice change. I ordered a mixed grill which was as good as this country and my girlfriend ordered Spag Bol, plus drinks and it was £23.

All in all a brilliant holiday and would recommend it to couples, and families. I will definately go there again as value for money was excellent.

Hi,

i went to Morocco over easter this year - myself and my partner in our mid twenties just wanted a week in the sunshine which was not to far to fly, Morocco was perfect for this with temperatures above 30c most days! Morocco is an amazing place an you feel a million miles away from home - as its still is fairly undeveloped and pretty unknown for the uk market its a breath of fresh air with out a english pub and mcdonalds in sight! The french are leading the market currently and i would say 80% of guests in out hotel were french but the hotel staff and entertainers always make an effort to talk in english when doing the evening entertainment.
the hotel is in the prefect location, set in gorgeous garden and off the Road so there is no road noise by the pool. just outside the hotel there are some lovely restaurants and bars and a few clubs further up the road and a selection of shops, and at night there is something for everyone.
To be honest we spend most evening in hotel (something which we normally do not do) but the evening enterainment was so fantastic that we didnt want to miss it - the staff are amazing and really made my holiday! they had everything from snake charmers to a miss Ramada contest !! The entertainment used to start around 8.30 - 9ish and run till about 10.30pm, then the staff would hang around chat to guests and dance - which was gr8 seeing as i am a dancer! There was a nightclub in the grounds of the hotel which was great and got busy pretty much every night after 11pm, i think i ended up there every night until the early hours!

The food is good with a good selection but it did get a little reppeative, breakfast is basic but you have everything you need and they make pancakes and omletts to order which were nice. the restaurant is lovely with a patio area outside which over looks the pool and gardens - prefect place for a romantic dinner or a sunshine breakfast. we ate out a few nights and it was pretty cheap 3 course meal and a vast amount of wine came to about £25 - £35 for two. The beaches are beauitful, huge and white sand and its opposite the hotel so prefectly located.

the Morrocans are delightful, friendly helpful and very polite inside and out the hotel - i loved it so much i am going back on the 25th June to this same hotel with the girls this time! i would reccommend this hotel to couples and singles!!

you must go on a camel ride if you have never been on one its an experience that must not be missed - make sure you book the excursion through your rep then you will know that the place you go to look after the animals, i heard a few horror stoires where people booked them locally. We had a 2 hour camel ride with a short break after an hour, you cant walk the next day but its well worth it and only about £13 per person for everything!

Go to Morocco you will love it!!

Avoid the food

from A TripAdvisor Member
Agadir is a building site with a large beach. The main problem I experienced apart from the lack of anything to do in the town was the food. I went all inclusive wich included a fair quantity of wine.

The food in general was bad. A lot of salad but little else apart from stale bread. Most people I spoke to had suffered from a bad stomach and diarrhoea. This we attributed to the poor standards of hygene. The barmen put ice in drinks by hand, bread was carried into the dining room in bare hands also. Cakes were sometimes dropped onto the floor and then put back onto the plate.

Nice place, room for slight improvement

from A TripAdvisor Member
I got back from Agadir yesterday and stayed at the hotel Ramada. Approx a 25 min drive from the airport which wasn't too bad because it's nice to see a bit of the place before you get there, although as we were delayed 2 hours from Gatwick this meant getting there at middnight and missing our first meal for dinner.

Check in was easy, you have to hand in an immigration card which you fill in at the airport, you have to fill one in on the plane then one on the coach to the airport otherwise you are not allowed in the country. We were taken to our room by a porter who exptected a tip (they all do and don't leave you alone until you give them one) quite annoying!

Room was nice, basic but fine. Balcony overlooked gardens but then a busy road. Maid service was really good.

Pool was lovely as was beach which was a couple of mins walk from the back gate of the hotel.

The only thing i would criticise is the food, i was glad i went half board as by the end of the week we began eating out because the food was so basic. There are only so many omelettes you can eat for breakfast in a week! I heard quite a few english people complaining about their kids not liking the food but then why would you take young children to north africa if they were fussy eaters??!!!

Overall a good holiday, weather was cloudy most of the week but we still manged to get a tan through the clouds.

Ramada review in Agadir

from sja1
I got the holiday to the Ramada Les Almohades very cheaply and so wasnt really expecting too much. I had read previous reviews and after my stay felt some of the comments were not really fair. We picked up a car at the airport so we had already familiarised ourselves with the area. The hotel is situated in a very good site the road that runs along the back of the hotel has a few more hotels closer to the beach but this hotel is just a cross over the road lfrom the back gate leading directly on to Agadir beach. The beach is great very wide so the few hotels along it have a bit with longers on but then the rest is just empty down to the water. Its not annoyingly owned by the hotels like in some other resorts so you can lie wherever you want. Its windy coming from the Atlantic so lie closer to the sea as the sand is very fine and will blow everywhere on a windy day (it tends to get windy about 4pm for a while but this in turn also makes it easier to lie in the sun, alot of people forgetting its still hot and getting sunburnt!) The road at the front of the hotel has alot of resturants along it and shops and you can eat here very cheaply. There is a little kiosk as you walk onto the beach which sells water ice creams etc. On the beach we had someone coming around with ring doughnuts which were a nice (if fattening!) snack. You can jet ski get quad bikes kite surf etc. If you walk along Agadir beach to the right you will come to the main promenade which you must try the ice cream from Ice Legend (next to McDonalds)they have over 100 flavours!!! Here there are a lot of women who make their kids come up to you to beg for money while they hang around its very annoying as it seems just to be the thing to do there are police everywhere and if they catch them they get taken off, so its obviously a bit of a problem.
Back in the hotel it was a nice reception we'd e-mailed them previously to let them know we wouldnt be arriving with the rest of the travellers from the airport and they were very welcoming. Our room was nice I'd read on trip advisor that the rooms were all green but ours was cream and had a balcony and then a terrace with chairs and table.I bathed on here in the afternoon although the sun was on it all day. The balconyover looked the gardens which are very nice alot of people laid on the grass instead of round the pool which was nice to be able to do. They had a lovely walkway to the resturant with lots of pretty flowers.
We went all inclusive but as I said it was very little that we paid for it so wed ate out if we wanted to. I have to say we are in our early 30's and it did seem that the older the people were the more rude they were in the resturant. Breakfast was buffet style help yourselves to tea coffee milk etc and they had four choices of breakfast cereal frech bread with a toaster outside butter jam etc also hot stuff salads and you could get the chef outside to cook you fried eggs or an omelette. Lunch had lots of salads some hot food bits of cake and pastries but as I said before the manners of some people who felt the need to push in and take a whole tray of meatballs or whatever was disgraseful. They constantly filled the trays up anyway so i didt actually see what the fuss was about. In the evening they had some barbequed stuff, whilst we were there they served ice cream once at night the poor bloke you d have thought they had never seen it before all very sad behaviour from the tourists and I was embaressed on behalf of them. The hotel staff must have found it very bad. They had lots of stuff you could eat if you were trying to be good. No it wasnt the best food in the world but for Morocco it was good and niether me or my partner got ill or had a bad stomach so it must have been prepared well. The drinks at lunch and the evening were served to you at a bar inside and you had to sign for them all ok with me. My partner and I rarely drink so we didnt even use the bar. There is a little shop for drinks and things at the front of the hotel so you can get bits to put in your fridge. The tv had MBC 2 (24hr movie channel on channel 20 on the tv) The bathroom was clean and the maid service was every day great if youve been on the beach and got sand everywhere. Maids very nice and trustworthy i left lots of designer things and make up lying around and they didnt throw stuff away either. Unfortunately they had no double beds but they had comfortable beds pushed together and this was fine. Air con took a little while to get into full swing but great to sleep at night if like me you dont like patio doors open. The tv has a control you need to ask for it at reception, as well as a little magnetic 'key' for the electronic safe. you then choose your own code I thought this was much more satisfactory than a key as only you know the code. There is also a money changing facility at reception and we used stirling travellers cheques and they took very little to change them. There is also car hiring facilities in the hotel at a really good rate. We hired a car from a well known international company beginning with H please dont we had agreed a web price but at airport they wanted me to sign a blank credit card slip which I did but only on a card that I knew you needed to put a pin number in with which was lucky as they tried to charge me twice the amount agreed. They actually tried all methods to get this money and we went to their offices to try and sort it out but was given alot of nonsense. I was polite but firm then annoyed and firmer still. Its obviously a ploy they use and had a rehearsed line about taking the money and then sorting it out when I got back I was having none of it and only paid them what I agreed but please beware. I would use the hotel facilities for car hire here you can be sure there will be no funny business.
The staff were all very pleasant especially the chaps in the resturant they chatted to other peoples children and despite the long hours they work were always cheerful. I thought the hotel was in a good location and for the price was also good.

Mmmm

from Andie10
Got back from Agadir yesterday - Ramada hotel was clean and staff friendly but food wasn't good quality and limited choice. You get a rough deal if on 1/2 board option, best to go all inclusive as drinks are as much if not more than cost in uk.
Weather was warm but often foggy and overcast in Agadir itself, only when you left the city that you got the scorching sun, even the locals say it is nearly ALWAYS foggy over the town.
Hotel got a good location for shops and resturants if you want to escape, we did as entertainment was also quite poor! It's a good thing the lovely beach is just out the back too
I didn't like Agadir itself, it's grown up since 1960s and seems oddly new and a little like Blackpool to me. I wanted to escape and soak up some real culture but trips through Thomson were expensive. I would recommend the Mountain 4/4 trip and Essouria as the scenery is amazing but I would say do Marrakech on your own if you are brave enough!
What I would stress is that this is unlikely to be a cheap holiday - food, drink and presents are all as much if not more as uk prices and you use a lot of money handing out tips left right and centre, it is EXPECTED that you tip everywhere and I was not prepared (and often resented!) this.

Great, fun hotel, fab staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
My friend and I got a cheap half board deal with Thomsons for 1 week. Hotel is advertised at 3* but I would rate it a 4*. Despite previous reviews, the food was very good with an excellent breakfast choice (freshly made omlettes, pancackes, fruit, salad) and always different hot dishes including grill/bbq in the evening.

The highlight of the holiday was the fantastic staff! They all work very hard and ensure you have a great time. Thanks to Aziz, Abdul and the gang for their games of badminton and dancing lessons - not so sure about the dodgy nightclub tho'. The weather was glorious - 29 - 31 degrees every day apart from on our day of departure when a storm set in from the Sahara. Agadir has a beautiful beach which is very clean and you can take part in lots of water sports. It is only really a holiday resort but its well worth taking a trip up into one of the villages for a typical Burbar night of food and dancing - it takes about an hour to get there. The camel ride is a bit of a laf as well but you big busted ladies will need to wear a sports bra!! We paid £300 for the week and it was well worth every penny!

best hotel in the world

from A TripAdvisor Member

Top Local Tips for Agadir

Bartering The local way is to barter so you when you ask how much something is, the price will always be high. Start by offering at least half what they originally ask and if you are not happy, walk away.

Taxi Cost should be no more than 200 dirhams

Beware of local Guides Walk purposefully, look as if you know where you are walking - check maps out of eyeshot of locals who will tag along, ask you the time and then ask if you are going to 'wherever' they will then walk in front of you, idly talking away, being your best friend, advising you where to go, and what to see..this of course, will cost you..
