GASTRONOMY

At the 4 Paradis Plage restaurants, healthy cuisine and local economy combine to offer tasty and balanced dishes. Fish caught the same day, fruits and vegetables from an organic farm, everything is fresh and succulent. The 27 takes its name from the 27 kilometers separating Paradis Plage from the city of Agadir. In this à la carte restaurant, you will taste the best flavors of Moroccan cuisine. The Ocean offers generous buffets every morning and occasionally in the evening. To relax after an active day, the Lounge and its comfortable sofas are waiting for you! The opportunity to enjoy a delicious cocktail overlooking the ocean, or Moroccan pastries with afternoon tea.

More than just restaurants, Paradis Plage also offers real experiences such as the Chiringuito: this little snack-bar on the beach, at the surf club house, which you can privatize, or the Private Paradise concept (privatize a choice of the hotel or the beach to enjoy a dinner according to your desires). Crush on Khaima – privatized esplanade facing the sea and can accommodate up to 250 people for all your events.

We advise you the half-board formula, especially for children under 11 y.o.

A oriental getaway to Morocco

Alexandre

Alexandre, 30 years old, a dandy who love paradise islands, from Strasbourg, France

 

 

Last May, my partner and I flew to Morocco to experience Paradise Plage. This luxury eco-resort is located about ten minutes from Taghazout, a typical village renowned for its surf beaches stretching as far as the eye can see.

 

A piece of paradise

We decided, before heading out, to rent a car, so as to be in control during our stay and to be able to visit the region as we please. Good to know: the hotel has complimentary parking near the reception. The nomadic traveller will also be delighted to know that Paradise Plage also offers transportation from Agadir airport, a valuable option for those who do not want to venture out alone on Moroccan roads!

We finally arrived at a sublime and serene establishment: walls gilded by the setting sun; balconies covered in a blue reminiscent of the ocean floor and surrounded by a huge beach. Moreover, we were struck by the ecological awareness of this resort: a superb outdoor swimming pool heated by solar panels is ready to welcome guests. It is in a nutshell a perfect intimate drop-off point for travellers seeking peace and quietness.

A cosy nest

Walking through the doors of the resort, we were warmly welcomed by a discreet and dedicated staff. We were served a refreshing local juice in the process, a real delight! The complex is spacious, with its rooms offering a breath-taking view of the ocean and lush vegetation scattered throughout the establishment. Modern and traditional, the rooms are decorated with ochre and bluish touches, a nod to the desert and the neighbouring Atlantic Ocean. The hotel also offers cosy bungalows and friendly villas.

We chose the Bungalow Plage for this weekend under the theme of surfing. Covering a floor area of 72 m², our cocoon consisted of a bedroom and a separate living room, modern furniture and above all a splendid furnished terrace, which became our favourite spot from which to admire the sunrise in complete peace and tranquillity.

 

A delight for children

Paradis Plage has an exceptional kids-club where toddlers can get excited and have fun in the company of qualified bilingual animators. The interior room is of moderate size to ensure maximum safety. The weather in the region is of course ideal for outdoor games. Bingo: the kids-club offers a wide range of free activities such as beach games and treasure hunts, which are always supervised.

Children under 4 years of age are not allowed to join the kids club without the supervision of their parents, but can be pampered by the super babysitters without any concerns. We were most impressed by the flexibility of the animators, who went to great lengths to spoil the children and make them enjoy a dream vacation.

 

A weekend rich In experiences

There is plenty to do in this hotel, which carries its name so well, in terms of spending time and trying to reconnect with oneself with some degree of success! For our weekend, we tried (and approved) among other things, the yoga sessions conducted by an ever smiling and humorous local coach. Nothing beats opening your chakras in front of the ocean. Given the mild Moroccan climate, we preferred spending time at the beach rather than in the pool. The beach is only a 2-minute walk away, via a lovely path through palm trees that leads straight to deckchairs, set up by the dedicated staff of Paradis Plage!

We took the opportunity to go to Agadir, 30 minutes by car, to visit the largest souk in Morocco: Souk El Had! With every metre walked, we got more enchanted by the scents of spices, olives and cedar. After enjoying these oriental scents, we walked through the lively streets of Medina and made some unexpected encounters… with goats! There are indeed a large variety of animals on the streets of Agadir, enough to brink a sparkle to children’s eyes.

 

A gourmet break

After a hectic escapade to a souk filled with delicious treats, our respective stomachs welcomed the idea of a hearty meal in the hotel’s restaurant «27». It’s staff are cheerful and professional. I personally went for an exquisite beef fillet, accompanied by a Moroccan wine. Following this feast, we wanted to enjoy the last rays of the sun on the terrace of El Chiringuito, the hotel’s lovely beach bar, soaked in the sound of waves and the crackling of the wood fire.

In summary, it was an excellent stay in this luxurious establishment where the high quality of services fervently counteracted the sometimes-tarnished image of tourism in Northern Africa.

I highly recommend them!

Alex.
