"Schizophrenic Hotel, make of it what you will"
This was our first time in Agadir, but the 8th Riu Palace. And while in many ways it was the best of them, in others it was the worst. Many others have commented on the good parts, few seem to give the bad side a mention. So let's get this two sided hotel sorted. The good has been rightly empahised. Brilliantly designed on the exterior,(compared to the "concrete blocks " of other hotels) and around the pool, with little nooks and crannies for quiet seating, great pool in different depths, purposes and usage, Spotlessly clean most of the time (storm damage took a while to repair), and effectively managed (our complaint about a technical problem was sorted quickly-and followed up the next day). Food is outstanding, some of the best we have had (Bacon! in a Muslim country, egg custards that are habit forming, best oranges ever) and waiters attentive and helpful. Overall, excellent. But there are drawbacks. Apart from the previously mentioned WiFi, there are small annoying problems such as the dessert and soup spoons being enormous and hard to use, the louvered doors in bathroom areas -unnecessary and fiddly, making opening drawers difficult- and the long, windy corridors to the rooms. The main reception/lobby is huge, gloomy and while comfortable does not really feel welcoming, it needs speparating into smaller units. The dining areas are huge, barn like, and finding a place can be difficult. Unlike other Palaces which have 2 sittings for evening meals, the constant service was not condusive to "refined" dining, as Palaces usually are. But the real problem that we- and a few others- found was the clientele. They were generally very nice, but had a very noticeable minority who spoilt the atmosphere. We have been to club hotels and felt that this hotel was a palace with a Club hotel guest list. Not that they are bad but there are always a few that let themselves down..Adults piling plates high, bolting food and leaving half, some virtually pushing you out of the way to get what they wanted. Raucous large gatherings around the bar, with no thoughts for others. And then the children. Most of them were relatively well behaved at all times, but a significant number were not. As it was half term in England I suppose we had to put up with them, but not the screaming and squealing from those round the pool, which disturb those trying to rest. Or the "yobbo" attitude of some playing football in the open area. Or those running around the dining areas unsupervised,causing danger to the elderly/less mobile/partially sighted, eating as they went along or even riding a scooter around the lunchtime snack area. The final insult was the four- not British- that decided that the lobby was the correct place to play a very loud game of hide and seek, at 10 in the evening, hiding behind chairs where we were trying to have a quiet drink and then virtually pushing past us. No parental control whatsoever. This would not be allowed in other Palaces (we have had 20 visits to various). So a schizoid place, if you are prepared for the poor behaviour of a few, the monster children - and not to mention 24 hour torrential downpours and earthquakes- this would be an ideal place. If like us you do not, go to one of the other Palaces and have a more genteel holiday
We have been to this hotel three times now over a period of two years.. Great value, lovely staff and well located. We thought the last pool view room we were placed in was frayed around the edges. Food was fantastic.
"Our Second Visit."
We stayed here for a week in February. Flight from Manchester was on time and we got to Hotel about 10.30 pm. Check in was very fast, we had a snack in the dining room and a drink and then went to find our bedroom. As requested we had a bedroom on the top floor, with a sunny balcony and pool/seaview. We found this a very clean hotel, nice large bedroom, good choice of food in the restaurants, Ashraf and Soufianne really looked after us well and deserve a mention. The girls also but can't think of their names. The bar staff were brilliant. This is a lovely hotel situated right on the long promenade. Nice to have a walk along the prom after dinner and people watch. Will definitely return. Must mention the assistant manager, Alberto, who is always around. Nice to have a chat to and if anyone has a problem he does his best to sort things out. Don't work too hard and hope to see you soon.
