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 got a top-to-toe makeover in May 2015, too, so it has a modern new look.
The buffet restaurant offers a varied breakfast with continental and wholemeal products. For lunch and dinner you'll find a selection of dishes on offer, plus there are on the spot cooking stations too.
OMG I have never felt so sad to leave a hotel! I loved every secondð The staff at riu tikida dunas really make it, they are amazing,really friendly, funny and great with families, but If your not willing to join in on the club dance or the daily activities with them or just to be friendly back to them there's not really any point in going. Considering the staff work long hours everyday they still go to work with a smile on their face and have the energy to perform the evening shows and keep us entertained during the day.
Most managers at hotels are either never there or hidden in some office somewhere but the managers at tikida dunas have time to talk to their customers and are always around!
The lobby, the bars, the restaurants, the pools, everything at riu tikida dunas has a great atmosphere.
The restaurants at tikida dunas are really nice, all three (buffet, Moroccan and Asian) have amazingly cooked food; although all the restaurants are really nice I think the Asian restaurant is the best one!
Honestly if you do stay at tikida dunas you'll not want to come home!
So all in all this hotel is by far the best hotel I've ever stayed at!ððMore

Nice for families
Very nice wide rooms, large pools, sympathic staff but the lunch restaurant was more like a noisy factory and the cleanliness was not what it should be in such a pricy place.
Sports coaches could be a bit more motivated too..More
Hotel - recently refurbished and rooms are very comfortable and modern. Is very well laid out, with free form pools and well-maintained gardens. Can't fault.
Food - typical of a reasonable all-inclusive. There's always something to eat and a decent variety. The asian restaurant was good but was disappointed with the moroccan. If we want an authentic moroccan meal you'd be better taking up a recommentation from the rep and visiting a local restaurant in Agadir.
Staff - very helpful and friendly. Could sometimes be difficult to get a sunbed - thanks to the ignorant ones we observed putting towels on sunbeds then leaving for a full day trip. When we wanted sunbeds later in the day, the staff were always helpful though and when asked arranged sunbeds for us. We usually got to the pool about 8.30 and always managed to find sunbeds for a party of 7, with shade.
Trips - was nice to be able to walk out into Agadir (rather than rely on taxis) and whilst there were vendors trying to sell you things, they were always polite and not too pushy (though have to say we always had a man with us). A firm no thanks was always enough. Highly recommend the trip to the spa (booked through Thomsons). It was much cheaper than the hotel spa and very enjoyable.
Agadir - we've previously visited the Tikida Palmeraie at Marrakech. The hotel at Agadir is nicer but if you want the Moroccan experience, I agree with other reviews, and visit Marrakech. Agadir itself is just a seaside resort, with less of a Moroccan feel.More

fantastic hotel, friendly & helpful . Just spent 10 days there with family & friends had a brilliant time. Rooms very modern big rooms bathrooms excellent very clean, I am a fussy eater but got to say food was very good catered for everyone, of course where ever you go & it's all inclusive it will be repetitive, animation team brilliant Dj brilliant they are great with the children very caring & attentive. The only things I got to say negative is pool attendants take backhanders to put towels down on sun beds this seemed to be for the Moroccan ppl, we got up @ 6 to put our towels down & loungers were already gone. Point being ppl get up early to secure a place when others stroll down late morning because their place was done for them!! They also come along & take your umbrellas you have only gone in the pool which is really annoying . The snack bar also is not stocked up enough I think if it is all inclusive this should be stocked @ all times. But overall a brilliant hotel we shall be defiantly returning next year!!More
Excellent Hotel, not the best place to experience Morocco
The hotel is excellent. Brilliantly designed, beautiful to look at and despite how large it is, it never feels crowded ( unless you want a sun bed). The staff are friendly and helpful. Their are many activities for all ages ( the nightly shows need some work) but the pools and various bars are lovely. It's beautiful at sunset. You may never need to leave..... But... If you do... The promenade can be a hassle, if like me, you are an un married woman. I went out with my teenagers and we got the usual banter from stall holders but I went out on my own and got bombarded by random men asking if I was English, if my husband was dead, if I wanted...... My advise to single/ divorced women wanting to go outside in Agadir is to wear a wedding ring of some sort. Otherwise it's intimidating. It's odd that Marrakesh isn't the same. All in all, it's a lovely hotel. There is little outside because the earthquake of 1960 flattened all of the town. The mound on the way upto the old Kasbah still holds the unmarked graves of 1800 people who died then. The resort is for tourists and charlatans . It's not more than Blackpool in the sun, but if that's what you want... You can't do better than this hotel. Despite everything I hate about Agadir, I cannot say anything bad about the Riu Tikida Dumas. It's fabulous.More
