Just had to stay here before leaving Agadir. It is the most beautiful little Riad/Hotel. The smell of fresh roses pervades. Grounds are delightful and well maintained. Lovely pool. Public areas are very elegant and the dining room matches anything in Paris !- style, decor and food ! Very traditional Moroccan but also very French ! I have stayed in a few different rooms here- all are spacious, very elegant,stylish, relaxing. Showers are wonderful. Staff are there when you need them and seem to disappear into the woodwork when you dont ! A great place to stay. Rated officially as a 4 star but it is 5 star boutique for sure ! Top end pricing for location but it is a rather lovely exclusive and unique place to stay. Restaurant and spa open to non residents. It is slightly 'off patch' in terms of the tourist trail but the beach is walkable for sure. Taxis needed in the evening if you venture out for security reasons.
While on holiday in Agadir the Riad Villa Blanche was recommended to my fiancé and I as a good place to go and have a hammam & a massage. I'm so happy that we listened to that advice and drove from Tamraght to the riad which is located just off the Agadir beach front. This was my first hammam and my Fiancé 3rd and we both thought it was great. The spa is beautiful and I had a relaxation massage which was exactly what I needed. If we are ever in Morroco again we shall & will be back!!!!
No beach front location, but a haven that is a sensible alternative to the huge Agadir hotels. Good restaurant with a nice tasting menu, though the staff have no idea about the listed Moroccan wines. Rooms are great will the top floor ones facing the sea having balconies that get sun for most if the day. We started in room 204 which should be avoided Friday and Saturday when the hotel has livee music till midnight. Very friendly staff and the manager sorted us a room move.
We stayed 2 nights at Villa Blanche. I was very much looking forward to it as they were very attentive and reactive since the first contacts by email to book our stay; which gave me the impression that service would be impeccable... The place did not disappoint. It’s beautiful. Elegant. Stylish. But ... some details in the room deserve to be better cleaned (replace the curtains? Remove dust on the wooden doors in the bathroom?). Note the bed sheets were were spotlessly clean. We had an issue with the remote of the TV; someone told us they would come “immediately”; except they only showed up the next day, after we called them back. Breakfast was nice and generous. We also had one dinner at the Villa. Food was amazing but sadly, service was not as one would expect. It was slow, beyond anything anyone on vacation is willing to wait for food... To conclude, I would recommend it for sure, the place is worth it, but would not expect too much from the service, that’s the best way not to be disappointed.
This is our 3rd visit to the Spa in Villa Blanche. It never fails to impress. It is such a lovely place. The pool and the atmosphere of the place really sells it. We booked for a Romantic Spa package for 2 of us. It cost on average £240. This included a swim, Hammam, sauna, body wash and scrub. Steam room. Full body mud treatment. Full body massage. Hot tub with floating rose petals and tea and coffee served whilst you relax. Then it was time for your hair to be washed and styled and then a wee bit of a manicure. For gents there was an option for a shave. A great afternoon, we where there for 4.5 hours and totally relaxed afterwards. Highly recommended!
Located a stones throw away from our hotel (Sofitel), Villa Blanche restaurant supplied all the ingredients for a perfect final evening in Agadir. We were recommended the restaurant by the concierge at the hotel, so we were unsure as to what to expect. After walking through the entrance or what seemed to be a Moroccan jungle with a path cut for those lucky enough, we found ourselves in a boutique bar. We head through to the restaurant. The interior designers deserve a prize for the job they did with the place. Classic chic feel with a modern touch to it. Wonderful. I settled in just fine, with a Casablanca in hand. They provided appetisers: a fennel and salmon soup and sour cream and chive on bread. More exciting than it sounds. The menu was in French... With no English provided, we were struggling. Google translate was my new best friend, however there was only so much he/she could do. The waiters weren’t much help either. I settled on the tartare de bouef which I banked on being Beef Tartare followed by something de Canard which was a duck breast. Both were lovely, however, not ‘to die for’ which I’d read in a previous review. The duck wasn’t as tender as I’d hope. The dishes in general are wonderful and definitely branch out if you’re feeling adventurous. Pigeon is on offer with a selection of unique salads and carpaccio’s - yes please. I wouldn’t bother would desserts, they aren’t all that and they were even harder to translate. I ended up with a white chocolate peanut butter hot pot sort of thing. All I can say is I have no idea where the peanut butter came from and there was a lot of it. I don’t like peanut butter. Jokes aside, the restaurant is ideal for any number of people. The decor is to die for and not the duck. So walk on down, but be careful, there isn’t any neighbourhood watch. Taxi maybe a better idea if you’re coming from afar.
Generous rooms with excellent beds and beautiful linens. Our deluxe room had a sea view through large panoramic windows, separate bathroom with twin sinks, separate WC and a walk in wardrobe. The taste levels are very high with muted colours, polished plaster walls and beautiful tiling and rugs underfoot. We ate out of the hotel once in a week. We chose one of the best restaurants in Agadir and it was very poor compared to the hotel. So we just stayed put for almost every other meal. The menu offers both French and Maroccan options and I can honestly say we didn’t get bored once. Breakfasts were light, delicious and resplendent with fresh oranges and fabulous pastries. Someone here really can cook. The facilities include a fabulous spa with a real haman, an inside pool, and a gym. A coach is on hand to help clients with their gym workout throughout the day and he is much appreciated by all the guests. When we stayed there was a package which offered a haman, massage and blow dry in their hair salon (just a little room) for the equivalent of £47.00 or $63. But perhaps the most inspiring thing about this place is the garden. We spent a lot of time in it reading, eating and swimming in the gorgeous pool so how the garden felt mattered. Frankly, its beauty was a constant distraction. It has been intelligently designed as a tropical garden by a reknowned garden architect who has mixed heights, textures, colours to magical effect. There are no roses in the garden but our room, the fountain in the courtyard, even the WC had beautiful, pure white roses. And for the record, unlike a previous reviewer, we found no evidence of anything other than subtle, rose fragrance wafting around. Finally, the service is uniformly excellent and discreet. If you are looking for total relaxation, this is it.
Villa Blanche jas beem built along the specs of a traditional riad with all modern day requirements. It is an oasis of calm and relaxtion. The rooms are individual and beautiful. Generously proportioned and elegantly furnished. The courtyard area is stunning and the restaurant rather opulant paris meets morocco ! - both in design/ furnishings and menu. Outdoor pool and terrace area blends with terrace from restaurant/bar area. Small but well maintained grounds. Lovely indoor pool and spa. Excellent service in all areas. Attention to detail here is notable. A wonderful hotel.
A beautifull building built in a traditional manner with the room overlooking a central courtyard and a water feature filled each day with fresh roses and the scent of roses wafting through the whole building. At night they light the building with candles. Probably the most romantic place I have ever stayed in. The rooms are very good and there is Wi-Fi every where. The food is high and the breakfast is too big. The side rooms are a bit noisy at night.
Although built recently (2011), the hotel feels like it has some old world charm. All the other hotels by the beach are large modern monstrosities which lack character. This place has bundles. The restaurant is expensive by Agadir standards but the food is utterly delightful and the atmosphere is warm and cosy with great lighting. By day, it isn't quite so alluring, the biggest problem being that you cannot sit out by the pool without being bombarded by flies and other flying insects, which is a great shame. Otherwise, the place is near faultless and appears to me to be by far the best hotel in town without charging exorbitant rates.
