With 4 swimming pools and a beach on its doorstep, the Tikida Dunas is a water baby’s paradise.
This hotel has a standout setting. Not only is it on its own stretch of hourglass-fine sand, but it’s just footsteps from shops, restaurants and bars. The centre of Agadir’s only a 10-minute walk away, too.
There are 4 pools, 3 restaurants, and plenty of sports to try. The whole place is getting a top-to-toe makeover for May 2015, too, so it's set to be modern and contemporary.

picked this hotel because it had just been refurbished, and was not disappointed.the lounge was amazing which made our holiday a real comfortable experience. the main point i would like to make was a big thank you to mr miguel santoz one of the managers who went way beyond his duties to help me with my health issues while we were there. the pool.s are very nice with loads of sunbeds and if you want the beach even more. animation team good if you want to join in or if not they understand you want a bit of of peace and quiet.More
we returned this morning from this hotel after 2 weeks glad to be home at first glance we thought this looks the biz when we got there at night our room was hard to find in the dark the locals say worse months are july/august because the haze from the sea but its not the sea its how the weather is them months there are still teething problems like no electric for 2 hours a day sinks in toilets being stuck down sunbeds filthy and a couple broken they wash round the edge of the pool why not rinse the beds Asiatic restaurant what a joke peking duck hard got up and walked out morrocan restaurant is the same as you get in the ordinary restaurant themed nights in restaurant means a different coloured table cloth the Thompson rep well he should wear a clown suit I could go on but I will just say its back to Marrakesh for me you can keep agadirMore

Great service! Great Location!
We arrived late at night. Was taken to our room which was amazing paid and extra bit for a sea view was 100% worth it. The staff were friendly and very helpful with anything you needed. Food was good. There was also 2 separate restaurant's a Moroccan and an Asian would recommend doing both of these. Only thing I would fault is the night life not a huge amount to do when the sun goes down. I guess it isn't always like this but we went during Ramadan. All in all we both had a great time and will be staying with the RIU chain again.More

Myself, my wife & 2 teenage children had a wonderful 10 days here earlier this month (July 15). The hotel has been freshly refurbished at a cost of 14,000,000 euros & it really shows. The reception/lounge area is beautifully furnished & has a very relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are very nice with air con, flat screen tv, fridge, hair dryer etc, lovely bathrooms with showers/mini wet rooms in place of a bath. The staff are extremely polite & helpful, we booked 2 rooms & asked for them to be close to each other, but when we received our travel docs there was no mention of this request. I emailed the hotel directly a week or so before departure to double check this request. On check in, Aissam (who had responded to my email), made a point of greeting us & ensuring that we were happy with the rooms...fabulous personal service, many thanks Aissam. Food was great, plenty of choice, each day had different dishes amongst the favourite staple dishes. The restaurants were relaxed & only the odd instance of having to queue. In the past when staying all inclusive at other hotels, I have found the bar service to be a little slow, however this couldn't have been further from the truth at Tikida Dunas, the bar staff were extremely attentive & even entertaining (barman juggling bottles & ice cubes). The one negative was that as usual sun loungers were pre reserved early. Some loungers seemed to be reserved with a couple of towels thrown on them but not occupied for most of the day. This is not the fault of the hotel but more a statement about the guests. The ground staff were always more than happy to find loungers for guests at any time, however if the hotel pro actively removed towels from loungers if they are not occupied by say mid-late morning, this might reduce the issue of unoccupied rows of loungers for much of the day. Not a criticism, more a suggestion. More

My wife and I have have just returned from the Riu Tikida Dunas having stayed there 6/7/15 - 20/7/15. We booked following glowing reports from our daughter who came last year without a bad word to say about the place and news of the imminent refurbishment. We opted for taxi transfer through Thompsons and this is a must. It meant we arrived before everyone else and were booked in and at the restaurant 10 mins after arriving. Same when leaving as didnât have to stand in line at passport control etc as we were the first there. The hotel is beautiful from the lobby to the restaurants and bars and the rooms. Being just refurbished everything is immaculate. The pools are huge and the gardens beautiful. The food was excellent and we ate at all the restaurants. The Moroccan and the Asian restaurants have two sittings at 7pm and 9pm which aren't ideal times as one's a little early and the other's a little late but we enjoyed both. The Moroccan food was excellent and you sit at a large table with 6 other people. Both times we went we met great people and had a lovely time but if you fancy a quite meal with just your other half, this might not be for you. The food at the Asian was OK with some dishes better than others but the restaurant was a lovely place to eat with nice views of the sunset so we enjoyed both our visits there too. Our favourite place to eat was the main evening buffet restaurant which surprised us as the speciality restaurants are usually our preference. If you eat in the main room it can be a little canteen like but if you eat outside on the terrace, it's a lovely place to dine with views over the floodlit pools. Plenty of choice and the food was very good. The new seafront buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch was also excellent and had a huge choice. Deserts in all restaurants need a special mention and were delicious. What makes the hotel is the staff. From the cleaners to the gardeners to the animation team. They all work very hard. The animation team were superb. We were there during Ramadan and I have know idea how they stay so upbeat with smiles all day and night when they can't even have a glass of water. They always come and say hello and ask how your holiday is going which was really nice. We were particularly looked after by the beautiful Zeynap who our daughter befriended last year and has kept in touch with since. We paid for a sea view and I requested a top floor in block 5 which we got and was practically on the beach. Excellent location and highly recommended. Close to pools and breakfast/lunch too. We like to keep fit and exercised most days to counteract the all inclusive over indulging. The promenade is perfect for running and the hotelâs new gym is the best I've encountered on holiday. They have a weights room and and cardio room with cross trainers, treadmills and exercise bikes. It's all new and everything was in perfect working order. Doesn't open until 9am though which is a bit late as I think most who like to workout want to get it out of the way as we do leaving the rest of the day free. We left at the right time as it got very busy for the last couple of days following the end of Ramadan. Suddenly there were lots of children and it was pretty noisy around the pools. It was far more chilled for the first ten days. The only other issue was the weather. Be aware of the Agadir mist issue in July/August. I go on about about it too much here as it's out of the hotel's control and weather is always unpredictable. If you Google "Agadir Mist" you can see for yourself. We saw sun most days but itâs practically always starts overcast which isn't ideal. Don't take any notice of weather apps for Agadir either. We'd be sitting under an overcast sky and the weather app on my iPhone would say it's clear and sunny! Didn't spoil things too much for us and we are sun worshipers and both came back a decent colour. We went on two trips. Taroudant and the Atlas Trail. Enjoyed both but be prepared for how much hotter it is inland! All in all I'd say this was one of the best hotels we've stayed in. it has such excellent facilities, you neednât leave the place at all. It really is hard to fault and would highly recommend. Had a truly lovely holiday.More
