Just returned from an Easter break at the Caribbean Village which adjoins the Tamlelt. Weather was lovely apart from the odd shower which soon turned to sunshine, but the evenings are very cold this time of year, although we did sit out every night we did need jackets etc. Accommodation is a bit tired but the grounds are very pretty and well kept, rooms spacious, some have bigger balconies than others. We changed rooms after 2 nights as the music from the night club was noisy till 4am and we could hear the beat! We were given 3 new rooms on the opposite side so we werent bothered by it anymore. The staff are lovely, but the shop keepers on sight are a bit of a pain trying to get you inside to buy stuff you dont really need! Some nights you just had to run the gauntlet as it does get tiring after a few days! The animation team are like nothing we have ever experienced before and we have had some fab holidays over the years. They include everyone without making a nuisance of themselves and get people up dancing, quizzes, taking part in the stage shows and all sorts. There were 54 of us altogether ranging from age 5 to late 50's and everybody enjoyed it. The food was OK, we never went hungry and only a few of us had a dodgy tummy. The salads are gorgeous at lunchtimes. Also the outside snack bar is open from 1-4pm and does rolls with fries and drinks (soft, beer or wine) which we did prefer. At the moment that is the only place you can eat outside not sure if that changes in high season. Plenty of sun beds and umbrellas, hotel was only at half capacity so queuing for anything wasn't really a problem. Staff friendly and really appreciated a tip here and there. I was worried before I went as some reviews have been terrible over the winter but we actually had a far better time than I ever expected. Just remember it is 3 star and not a luxury hotel and you do get what you pay for, keep that in mind and you will enjoy it too! You will need to take a hairdryer as not supplied.
Stewart and Karen: Stayed at the Agador Village for 10 days and that was just enough ... The hotel staff were friendly however the food was not ... Be prepared for a diet of chips if you can call them that! Hotel looks nice and the weather was lovely (got a good tan). Sure the alcohol is watered down but we just had to make more trips to the bar! Take tablet to make you go to the toilet also tablets to make you stop because your body will change its mind on different days... If you suffer from heart burn take gaviscon or plenty of provisions to help it as you'll need it ! At the end of the day you pay for what you get and its the people you meet that make the holiday. be prepared for a different airport experience with the locals grabbing your bags to take to the coach for you! you will need to pay them. Culture shock! If you're on the top floor get ready for the 48 steps that lead you to your room! its a mission! Entertainment isn't too bad. Sunbed free for all ... I think not, the floor is an ok place !! Had a blast made the most of it like we've said you get what you pay for!
To put this review in context it was a cheap holiday. You get what you pay for. Therefore it was no surprise the hotel [actually the Caribbean Village next to the El Pueblo Tamlelt but in the same complex] was a little tired. The food in this all inclusive deal was also a little bland and the bar service a little slow. Our main complaint was the entertainment at the main pool which was always at full blast and our flat was only 50 metres away in the direct line of the loud speakers. No problem with the 9.00am step classes. No problem with the main entertainment between 8.00pm and 10.00pm after which a beautiful quiet would descend on the complex, we put the children to bed and then drifted off ourselves TO BE WOKEN AT 11.00PM BY FULL BLAST MUSIC AND SHOUTING WHICH LASTED AN HOUR TO 12 MIDNIGHT, followed by peace again.
This inexplicable entertainment spoilt our stay and the Thomson Rep Mikey was hopeless in sorting it out for us. A direct request to the reception quickly resolved our problem and we went to a quieter flat though the late night noise was still clearly audible.
The heated swimming pool actually was quite warm, especially first thing in the morning. The Moroccan staff were almost without exception clean, tidy and very helpful and most could speak at least some English, though being an old French colony Arabic and French are the most frequent languages used.
The hotel had its own roped off area of beach with sunloungers and surfboards and shades. The sea was nice and shallow with little undertow and good surf.
All in all we were satisfied that we got value for money. The flights back and forth were particularly good. However, THIS IS NOT THE HOTEL FOR YOU IF YOU WANT TO GO TO SLEEP BEFORE MIDNIGHT.
