The Melia Al Madina Salam is a rare combination of lush landscaping and Old Arabian Medina architecture (actually more like Jeddah, Saudi Arabia than any Moroccan city). The large cascading bougainvillea will delight any garden lover. The swimming pool has a wonderfully curved shape and a small palm tree covered island. You might think that you have discovered a magic oasis in the middle of the Sahara. Actually, the Atlantic Ocean and Agadir's world famous beach is only 100 meters away. Agadir's trendy nightlife of cafes and restaurants is just below the hotel, but the only thing you can hear from your room is the roar of the Atlantic. There are 180 rooms and 26 suites, a discotheque and several restaurants. A double is about $135.
