Located in the southern region of Morocco, the city of Agadir is a popular destination among European and Moroccan travellers. The city, which is surrounded by the lush beauty of the Anti Atlas, the Sahara Desert, and numerous natural parks, is known for its pristine streets and welcoming locals. Agadir's main draw, however, is the gorgeous Taghazout Beach, which covers a long, wide stretch along the North African Atlantic coast. Other popular tourist attractions in Agadir are the Vallée des Oiseaux ("Bird Valley") Zoo, where visitors can see exotic mammals and birds from around the world; and Souk El Had, a bustling market boasting over 3,000 stalls.
There is a wide variety of accommodation in Agadir to suit any need, budget, or taste. The most popular hotels in Agadir are clustered in the areas around the north and south ends of Taghazout Beach, but there is a growing number of budget accommodations in the area known as Nouveau Tablorjt. Hotels tend to fill up quickly during the high season, which runs from June through August, so you'll want to be sure to book your hotel ahead of time to ensure the best possible accommodation rates.
You'll find cheap accommodation to be plentiful in Agadir, with many hotels offering basic rooms for under $50 a night. Among them are Anezi Hotel Agadir, which is located on Boulevard Mohamed and features 3 lovely outdoor pools, a kids' club, and magnificent views of the city and bay; Hotel Diaf, which is situated within a 20-minute walk from the beach and offers rooftop accommodations; and Atlas Kasbah Ecolodge, which is located approximately minutes from the centre of Agadir and provides easy access to the UNESCO Argan Biosphere Reserve.
For reliable and comfortable mid-range accommodation in Agadir, you need look no further than Hotel Sud Bara. Conveniently located near the beach on Rue des Administrations Publiques, this four-storey, 246-room hotel offers an outdoor pool, a rooftop terrace, a restaurant, and a bar. A few other good mid-range hotels to consider are the Best Western Odysee Park Hotel, which sits on a private beach; and Hôtel Palais des Roses, which is situated along the bay of Agadir and features, four restaurants, four saltwater pools, and a full-service spa.
Those seeking the ultimate in comfort and service during their stay in Agadir will find it at the beachfront Hotel Sofitel Agadir Thalassa Sea & Spa. Here, you'll find refined guest rooms, a high-end French restaurant, a chic brasserie, and a fitness centre. Upgraded accommodations at this hotel provide incredible ocean views and a private pool. Two other good luxury hotels in Agadir are the Royal Atlas & Spa, which features colorfully designed interiors, à la carte dining, a terrace, and a full-service spa; and Hotel Riu Palace Tikida Agadir, a posh, all-inclusive resort that sits within an 8-minute walk from the beach and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.
Absolutely loved it there. The people are very kind and there is so much culture to explore. Moroccon tea is a must have.

I have been fortunate to have visited a few places in my lifetime but none stand out to me quite like Agadir in Morocco. Being by the sea, Agadir is cool. The breeze that comes into the town brings with it sand which covers the ornate streets like a brown sand, and even though it is not what you would call a party town in comparison to say, Ibiza, you are never left feeling like this is a town in need of a few more tourists. The people are friendly and whilst the menus available might not be to everyone's tastes (the food, regardless of nationality, is cooked by Moroccans), with a little research you can certainly find something to suit every palette. All in all I loved the fact that you can hire a bike with little more than a desire to get dusty. Just make sure that if you do decide to go to Agadir, you don't leave until you've gone Quad biking with the locals. Amazing.
The most beautiful beaches in Morocco are said to be in the area north of Agadir. Little villages like Taghazout and Imiouadar are all within driving distance and worth a day trip (we wanted to stay a night in Taghazout but couldn't find accommodations). In Agadir itself, lose yourself in Souk Lhed, the biggest souk in Morocco.
