This is a place where you can without any difficulty relax for a bunch of time. the staff is really super friendly, the place really nice and the food superb. Naturally to visit Agadir you need a cr and Agadir is not Marrakech or Assouira, but these are things you can know in advance.

It is charming, the grounds (small) and pool water are very well kept, however.....
Poolside tiling is breaking up and sharp in places. The extensive tiling around the pool is not non slip, if you have young children, there will be slips and "hard" tumbles.
My suite took "shabby chic" dangerously close to shabby and two other local hotels outshone the style and cleanliness standards of Dar Maktoub for cleanliness.
The restaurant serves good food at a good price, not cheap but good. Breakfast might be a little uninspiring but is none the less OK and generous (only eggs are cooked).
Roadside noise is an issue for anybody unaccustomed to it. Whilst only a small road it is effectively a southern bypass between two towns and used as a rat run by mopeds.
The adjacent natural waterway is only part tidal. The outfall from the nearby water treatment works and the operations of the plant itself, are not odour free. Too often the prevailing breeze leaves Dar Maktoub in a horribly pungent "fug" that persists for hours. It took me a 24 hours and a quick walk to realise that the problem does not originate at the property. Manu, the charming manager, is trying to sort this out but you may have to hold your breath! "Push rope uphill" until the King returns I'd guess?
The properties proximity to the national park is perhaps a bit overstated? That said, on the managers recommendation, I walked towards the ocean and was rewarded (after a couple of kilometres) with fresh air, the sound of the distant surf and abundant birdlife.
Flamingo, Stork, Cranes, Egret and all manner of other beautiful birds. Worth the walk, don't go too close to the water......

Room Tip: Towards the back of the property is probably best?

we visited as a family of four. very warm reception by manuela, the manager. dar maktoub is a walled-in self contained compound with nice little bungalows and a central restaurant/bar/sitting room area. the swimming pool is gigantic - and nicely kept. the gardens are beautiful, and looked after by a dog - named carter - and a little band of cats. the food is very good indeed, and breakfast is a treat.

cyclists - mountain bikers foremost - should know that the northern confines of the souss massa national park is only a stone's throw away, and this is a perfect place to ride from - avoiding all city traffic. you are out of the city and immersed in nature in about 5 minutes.

This hotel has many good points but also a few not so good. If you play golf, you will be delighted as there are 3 courses in walking distance. If you don't play golf, you find yourself stuck in the middle of nowhere, 6 miles from Agadir, along a smelly river and nothing to eat of any quality for miles. The hotel restaurant is excellent but not cheap by Moroccan standards and you need to book your meal in advance, so are committed to a return to the hotel by 7 pm. This is not always convenient. The staff are excellent and friendly. The room allocated at first was near the roadside wall, hence noisy as there is no sound insulation of any kind. The room I changed to was much quieter. The hotel has a beautiful garden. The entire layout is charming and has style. Although the hotel itself is of a high standard, I would not book this again due to its distant location from anything but golf courses. It is not suitable for general tourism without a car.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the rear of the gardens away from the roadside wall.

Beautiful Riad, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are large and well furnished, lovely bed linen and a huge shower. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice.
We only ate in a couple of nights but the food was very good both times, especially the fish!
This is a delightful oasis of calm, as others have said, I would thoroughly recommend it. You do need a car to get around.
