When we visited and stayed in January this year we rented a 1 bedroom apartment with large lounge to make 2 bedrooms and with 2 bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen to cook dinner and breakfast with for 300 dirham being off peak
- when its tourist season it would normally be 400-500 dirham but to have your own front door as well as kitchen for cooking and fridge facilities and 2 bathrooms this can be a very cost effective and comfortable way to stay.
We didnt have sea views as it was in a street behind one of the sreets that do but we were only a couple of minutes walk to the main beach and promenade - and we were in amongst the picturesque blue and white painted houses with bouganvillea so it was picturesque when we got up in daylight.
One strong recommendation though is to check the apartment before agreeing to take it - check that it is clean, particlarly that the linen, bedding and beds are clean, that there is gas in the kitchen for what you need, that locks look secure - towels and toilet paper are not usually supplied - sometimes tea, sugar, salt and oil is there from previous renters and left for ensuing renters to use as desired
The contact we had was a guy calljed Mohamed with phone number 00212660954269 - he will meet you and take you to what he has available - otherwise you do as in most places stop at local shop and ask if anyone there knows an apartment for rent....
Aglou is still quite an uncommercialised holiday town of holiday houses, camping ground and the Hotel Aglou Beach the only hotel in town.
Its a number of years ago that I stayed here at Hotel Aglou Beach (2005) during an offpeak period with hardly any tourists around but the hotel was still open and gave us a cheaper rate for an offpeak stay!
In excellent room with a view of the sea we paid only 189 dirham for a very nice 3 star room that would be worth a lot more during busy seaside peak times - when seaside places around Morocco swell at the seams with people - but as far as international prices go, prices here would still be a bargain.
Back then we ate in their restaurant and had huge plates of seafood brought to us for only 55 dirham each (about £4) (one plate between us wouldve been enough).
Visited here again for coffee and drinks and to use the toilets with friends in January 2012 - it has a large patio area now with steps descending down to the lower street and on along to the promenade and main parking area. A nice place to sit and gaze over the sea and along the coast.
Rooms with ensuites, tv, balconies and sea views.
