It´s like Alicante but with clean beaches which are tranquil and with a cold ocean. All the hotels are like paradises, with golf fields and views of the ocean. The people speak French, Ingles, Dutch, German, but not Spanish. It´s like a resort that gives you no reason to leave.
The French Institute of Agadir operates under the management of the French embassy, and has various resources available in French. There is a library, with the French daily newspapers, although they usually get there 2 or 3 days late. There's also internet access and classrooms. If you want to learn French at a fraction of the price of France, it's a good place to consider. Here in Agadir, you can live comfortably on 15 euros a day, paying 8 for a bed, and keeping 8 to eat. Classes are cheap, the weather is good all year round, and you're next to the beach ... the French institute organises many cultural events throughout the year that are open to all. There are exhibitions and concerts by Moroccan and French artists. For example; in September during Ramadan, there were many concerts and lectures at night, because during the day people do not eat, and those who do not work are often left at home.
The ensemble is a group of artisanal craftsmen, gathered in a building recently constructed by the Moroccan government to encourage the dissemination of art among tourists. The place is in the northern part of the city, in the neighborhood of Talborjt Nouveau. It's at least 20 minutes walk from the beach, or you can order a taxi to take you for 15dh. The craft area is organized by types of crafts. You can see metalwork - iron and silver, very popular in the Berber villages where they say that gold is bad luck, and amber. Prices are controlled by the government, but you can negotiate a little. Generally the silver is sold by weight.
