Fodor's Expert Review Riad Villa Blanche

50 Baie des Palmiers, Agadir, Souss-Massa, Morocco Fodor's Choice

An elegant boutique hotel—it was the first of its kind in Agadir—Riad Villa Blanche feels as though it has been plucked from the chicest Marrakesh address and dropped at the edge of the ocean. Rooms are individual masterpieces, each with a subtle theme bringing together Moroccan, African, and Asian design. The restaurant (open to nonguests) extends into the garden and offers a first-class Moroccan/Mediterranean menu. The focus is on personal luxury, with impeccable service from a team of cheerful staff. Built using traditional finishes of the highest quality, the riad has a central marbled courtyard with armchairs and potted palms, ideal for afternoon coffee or reading. The garden has a lawn, an outdoor veranda, and a heated pool. There is also a sumptuous spa and massage center with an indoor swimming pool.
