What a mistake to make ...!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 22, 2011

Le Tivoli looked like it was once a great hotel - shame they did not keep up the maintenance or the standards of that bygone era. Advertised as a FOUR star Le Tivoli would now struggle to make TWO!! Just about everything needed attention – even the chandeliers in the lobby. The rooms with en-suite were reasonable in size but tatty with a faint smell of damp. The bathrooms looked grimy though they were cleaned daily – they just needed to replace the horrible shower curtain with a screen and generally pay some overdue attention to the rest of it. Our first room was on the top floor but the only two lifts were both broken throughout our stay. We then discovered that the air conditioning for the entire block was in worse shape than the lifts so we moved to another block which had working lifts but the room was in a similar condition. No fridge, kettle or hairdryer and the only items provided were 3 small bars of soap and half a loo roll. Oh, there was cable TV, mostly French or Moroccan but there was Eurosport and 1 dedicated English channel, BBC World News.... Wow! However, the Chambermaids were very helpful ..
Even though we travelled with another couple there were only half a dozen Brits staying during our week. Marmara Cosy Club had taken over the entire hotel on behalf of the majority of guests and eight resident Marmara reps, in their early twenties, made sure their French guests were entertained all day and evening. We had no idea what was going on and were specifically excluded as all notices where obviously in French and when we did stumble across an activity we couldn’t understand it anyway... One or two of the reps were polite and did talk to us, in passing, but the majority just walked away when they discovered we were British.
The pool was OK though a little small with a separate paddling pool for children, however, it was not always accessible as the Cosy Club reps took over parts of the pool 3 or 4 times a day for various activities. They also played music for most of the day in-between the activities and although some was pleasant most was the type of music only teens and twenties appreciate – it was nice when it stopped.
With only two exceptions the hotel staff always spoke to us in French and were not as helpful as they seemed to be for the Cosy Club members. Apart from the paddling pool there were no facilities for children at all, not even in the only restaurant. Actually there were two restaurants but only one in use at a time, one for breakfast and the other for the rest of the meals. The food was something else – to be fair we did have two reasonable evening meals but breakfast seemed to be leftovers, although we did have fresh bread and croissants one morning... There were absolutely no concessions for us or any other nationality, no fresh eggs or anything we would recognise as breakfast. Needless to say all meals were geared to adult French guests with nothing for children. We tried the food for three days then eat out and rejoiced in the fact that we were only half board. Fortunately there was a very nice restaurant directly across the road from the hotel.
Agadir is certainly worth a trip – even though it is clearly a tourist destination, it is still developing. The locals are very friendly and polite – excluding the shop keepers who can be a very persistent to the point of putting you off. “I want your money” does not encourage you to enter their shop... and if you do – haggle and be very firm. My wife’s leather bag came down from 750 to 250 dirhams, however, most annoyingly; when I was paying he wanted even more than agreed. He didn’t get it and we did get the bag at the agreed price.
Recommendation: Choose another hotel....

Unique Quality: You might like it here but only if you are a member of Marmara Cosy Club otherwise you may as well wear a bell around your neck as everyone will avoid you anyway.

Directions: Loverly sandy beach is only 5 - 10 minutes away and there is a great restaurant directly across the road from the hotel.

Adequate Stay at Le Tivoli

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 11, 2010

Well it started off well we were seen to straight away and shown (well pointed in the) direction of our room. The set up was ok for a twin room enough space to maneouvre, the beds seemed comfy enough and the room was well kept apart from the little ants were had it was a good room. Not 4* as advertised but definately 3* by UK standards. The bathroom was ok but could have done with a little updating and amenities being provided. Do be aware that it seems that majority of Hotels in Agadir do not supply the usual shampoo etc we have become used to!
Breakfast is served from 5am to 10am although it does take about an hour for everything to be laid out, so do be aware. There isn't a change at all for breakfast, the set menu so to speak is salad, crossaints, selection of jams, beef salaami on a tray, cheese on a tray, bread, scrambled eggs, butter beans in a tomato sauce, prunes and bread, tea, coffee, orange juice are avaliable as well as moroccan tea occasionally.
Tip: If your half board and know that you won't be having lunch then get a voucher from reception, they'll say that its only avaliable once but try your luck.
Dinner changes everyday with a different buffet being served. The food for my liking was very bland which was a shame, however salt and pepper is on the table to add. Interesting, the restaurant would add rice to the salt.
Service unfortunately is not very good, they are sometimes attentive but majority of the time we were not at all satisfied especially since we felt that as we didn't order any drinks they didn't care. Be warned drinks are three times what you can get outside.
The reception staff were also not helpful and frankly one of them was very rude. So if your expecting to be treated like royalty then Le Tivoli isn't for you.

Unique Quality: The pool and pool attendents were very curtious and helpful. The pool was clean, not too crowded and I thoroughly enjoyed myself while my friend enjoyed a relaxing read on the decks. We didn't even have to go early to reserve a chair, there was plenty of choice. They even played your song choices.
The view from our room was nice we could see the beach and even the Kasbah.
The hotel is ideally situated with the beach only a short 10 minute walk, although to get to the main shops and restaurants only takes a further 15/20 minutes walk.

Agadir's Most Beautiful Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 7, 2005

Unique Quality: The Tivoli is centrally located in Agadir and is in reach of the souks and beach. I have been there twice and had a great time! The food admittedly doesnt have much diversity but that isnt to say it doesnt taste great and is of a high standard. The staff at the hotel are the most friendiest and there are many activities to do at the holiday. The hotel is decorated in archaic morocco architecture and has beautiful gardens to wander around in.
