Here at Holiday Hypermarket we have some incredible deals to Morocco all year round. Whether you want the sun and city, or sun and sand, we’ll have a package for you. If you’re on a bit of a budget, holidays to Agadir have cheaper dining options when compared with Marrakech .

Agadir is geared towards families and groups as well as couples, but All Inclusive Marrakech holidays are best for couples and shopaholics. In Agadir you’ve got traditional European style cafés and a great selection of Agadir hotel All Inclusive deals. The Atlas Mountains are also just a 4 hour drive away if you fancy a spot of skiing!

Skiing in Morocco?

It doesn’t quite seem right, but it’s home to the Atlas Mountains which ranges across north western Africa, extending through Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. There are 5 runs that descend from a dizzying height. Skis and boots cost around £11 per day with lift passes costing as little as £7!

Morocco Beaches

With over 300 days of sunshine per year and 9 kilometres of beach, Agadir is a great place to let loose. Agadir has more of a Mediterranean feel to it compared to the city break of Marrakech, which is swimming in culture and history.

We also offer twin centres so you can combine your holiday and see the best of both. Start by spending the first 3, 4 or 7 nights in Marrakech then spend the second 7 nights in Agadir at your beach resort hotel.
