Advantages: Great markets and food Disadvantages: Harrassment from locals depending on time of year you go
The town of Agadir is split into 2 areas: the new area reconstructed after the earthquake, and the old town which is higher up. The old town is ideal for small, cheap restaurants whereas the new town is more touristy with lots of quite expensive shops. From the local bus station you can get buses to local towns to visit the markets.
We spent a couple of days in Marrakech and stayed in...
Advantages: Beautiful weather, Fantastic Wine, Fun Disadvantages: Overtly pushy shopkeepers
...than those that do.
After this we were able to enjoy the experience a lot more. Be aware of shopkeepers charging ridicilous prices for goods (700 dirahms (appr £40) for a Nike belt - obviously refused!) Haggle and walk away if they refuse - you'll soon get the price you want.
The restaurants in Agadir do vary, and surprisingly not by price...
If you do get a chance, please go to...

Review of Agadir (Morocco)
Advantages: Hot, lovely beaches, good trips out of the city. Disadvantages: A clone of any other seaside resort. Predatory men.
Agadir is a city on the Atlantic in The South West of Morocco. I stayed there for a week a while ago and had a very unusual time there. I had been overworking and decided I needed a week's rest. Agadir ticked the boxes, warm, cheap, somewhere I'd never been before, it sounded interesting. I booked it late off the teletext and off I went!
My travel agents in their wisdom...
