The Riu Tikida Dunas is all about the swimming pool – or, should we say, swimming pools. There are four in total, and they’re absolutely huge. The three outdoor ones come with all the added extras you can think of, like water polo nets, wooden bridges and even palm-dotted islands. And when you fancy a spot of sunbathing, you can pick between the terraces and gardens that snake their way between the pools. Inside, meanwhile, you’ll find yet another waterhole. It’s part of the hotel’s spa, which also offers up massages and a hammam.
Elsewhere, there’s plenty to keep you busy. If sports are your thing, try your hand at a game of tennis, football or basketball. The hotel also puts on more unusual activities like painting classes.
When it comes to dining, you’re spoilt for choice. The main restaurant serves up big buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Expect home-from-home favourites, on-the-spot cooking stations and local specialities. Or head to the Moroccan or grill eateries on alternating days where you can tuck into succulent lamb or the catch of the day.
The bedrooms, meanwhile, are spacious and modern. Décor-wise, yellow ceilings and blue furnishings give each one a beach-like feel. Air-conditioning and satellite TVs provide the supporting cast.
Lastly, the setting of the Tikida Dunas is worthy of a mention. Not only does the hotel sit on its own stretch of hourglass-fine sand, but it’s just footsteps from shops, restaurants and bars, too. And the bright lights of Agadir are just a ten-minute walk away.

Another excellent Riu Hotel. Far enough south to have good weather in late February. Everything was perfect even though they are closing November 2014 for a while for refurbishment part of which will be to put heating in for the outdoor pool, this will be a great bonus. The service and staff were great. Entertainment crew excellent, they worked the socks off to make sure you were enjoying your stay. The only disappointment was we booked 3 times for the Italian evenings and each time we did not have a table available, having to wait up to 30 minutes to get seated. This didn't spoil the overall holiday.More

Currently staying at this hotel the entertainment is diabolical the worst thompson/first choice I have ever stayed, this hotel need holiday village entertainment. Food is ok but certainly not great... I can honestly say iv been here 1.5days and I definitely wouldn't return. We picked thompson purely as they know how to entertain but I think this hotel missed the post. More

Great place for winter sun
We've stayed here before, and our return wasn't a disappointment. A good choice of food and restaurants, friendly staff and varied entertainment, from cooking demonstrations to beach sport and traditional Moroccan entertainment and an enthusiastic resident entertainment team. We came to relax and get some winter sun and we weren't disappointed. There was a little rain one evening and the most terrific sea storm that caused some damage to the promenade whilst we were there. We were amazed by the huge Atlantic waves in the hours following the storm, but the clean-up began immediately. We stayed 11 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, even though we didn't stray very far although we did travel to taroudant which is a fascinating "little Marrakech" type of town. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't find ourselves drawn back here again next 'January.More
The good & the bad
Good points are very good selection of food especially at lunch times and good branded spirits mixers and very good wine. Staff are lovely (possible exception of under manager) and are so enthusiastic and friendly.pool boys pointed out best sheltered spot for loungers and put towels out for us every morning. pools are freezing but indoor pool warm but a bit shabby looking.changing facilities are poor. Rooms are good and large but we were in rear block and two flights up is tiring unless young.no lifts! really bad points are entertainment at night. Entertainment block is very shabby not even any toilets and the entertainment itself is dire. In the lounge there is usually a trio of some sort which is very mixed. We also were disappointed that the lovely Moroccan restaurant looked so special but was still self service with the same food as in main restaurant but much less choice. Also beds very hard but toppers supplied made them a bit better but pillows like bricks!More

Staff very helpful and friendly, some VERY rude French guests !!! Amazing Food, Entertainment ok but seen better. Entertainment staff work so hard all day and night offering all sorts of activities for everyone. Rooms had just about everything you needed and kept very clean, although could have done with tea making facilities we were right near the snack bar so not an issue most of the time but before early morning excursions a cup of tea would have been great. Lovely pools although not heated so VERY cold in February, made use of the indoor pool but so did everyone else. All in all a lovely holiday good value for money would return if we were visiting the area again :-)More
