On our last night in Morocco, we decided to head for drinks in the grand Sofitel hotel in Agadir. The hotel is very ornate boasting lots of beautiful lanterns and a fabulous seating area in the main lobby made up of a plethora of sofas where people sit, drink and enjoy each other’s company. When we walked in, there was a berber sitting playing some music and singing. His happy voice echoed throughout the reception area and he was attracting a very mixed group of both young and old, eager to hear more of his happy, traditional songs.
We made our way through to SO Fun bar, where we were met by yet more music. This time it was a live band singing classic soul and motown music. Their rendition of Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together was particularly memorable. The bar is modern and fiery with white leather sofas and orange and red cushions and lights everywhere. It once again attracted a mix of hotel guests. We enjoyed watching a few couples grooving to the classics. We sipped on glasses of Moet and enjoyed a few puffs of shisha. You can still smoke indoors in Morocco by the way! The service in the hotel, as in many places in Morocco was exemplary. Staff were always on hand to wish you a hearty ‘Bonsoir‘ and welcome you inside. I would have liked to have stayed in the hotel to experience more of the other facilities, such as the hammocks in the pool area and the beautiful private beach area… yes please!
