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, 4 restaurants, and plenty of sports to try.

Me and my partner stayed here for a week and really enjoyed our time here. However, we felt the hotel was missing something. There is no snack bar between main meals, no iron and kettle in the room and the maids sometimes forgot to give us any towels! Luckily we had our sunbathing towels to dry ourself with! Also any clothes I left around the maids put in the b-day in the bathroom which I thought wasn't pleasant. On a positive the hotel staff are lovely and couldn't do more for you, we especially loved Hassan and khalid! All the staff can speak many languages which we found really impressive. The location of the hotel is good and the Thompson excursions were amazing especially the dune buggying! The swimming pools were good but could be heated seen as though they are un bearable even in 27 degree heat! If you are wanting a sunny holiday agadir isn't the place, mostly over cast until around 3 pm in the afternoon. We enjoyed the beach but just be warned locals try hassle you to buy things and say inappropriate things whilst you're just relaxing. There is also a woman who does "henna" on the beach, don't get it her ink isn't henna and just looks like someone has drawn on you with a biro after a few day! On the whole we would visit this hotel again but probably wouldn't come back to agadir as there wasn't much there for a young couple. More
Very clean and tidy. Shame about the weather
First impressions were wow what a beautiful hotel, well kept gardens and every where was spotless. Good size pools and sun lounge area. Rooms were great, we were on ground floor so it was good for sitting in our own area looking out on to the sea. Bad points were having to put an alarm on for sun lounges. It did say on signs no reserving but every one plus the staff were putting towels down. The weather really spoilt it for us. It was mostly cloudy with the odd afternoon of sun shine. We went for 11 nights and probs had two full days of sunshine and a few afternoons of it. It would of defo been a 8 out of ten holiday if it were more sunny. If you want to go on trips or do sports or massage, I suggest looking for a guy called couscous who you'll find walking up and down the sea front. He also has a page on here called couscous agadir trips. Really nice guy and cheaper than half the price of Thompson's. We went to Marrakesh for a day trip but to be honest if ya don't like them people bugging you to buy stuff don't go. My head was battered with them. They took us to a restaurant there but were charging English prices for food. It was funny because it was an all English wrote menu, so obviously they were just robbing us. So we just went across the road to a cafe and got a meal and drink for like £3.50. I would defo go agadir again but defo not Marrakesh. More
Not the best 4 star hotel & worst Riu so far
This hotel is very average. The good things: staff are very friendly & helpful. The settings are very beautiful & well kept. 4 swimming pools and the longest beach. Own private section of the beach with sun loungers etc. Not enough sun beds around the pool area as if you like to sleep in past 7am everything will already be taken by the time you come out. Food average.. very large variety everyday at breakfast, lunch and dinner however all tastes quite bland and not much flavour. Ice cream and cakes were the best part for me each day! There's two restaurants & a buffet restaurant. Asian & Moroccan which you have to book in advance at the reception.. not great either! So if your a foodie I wouldn't recommend. Room was nice.. large television, big bed! Shower was the best part.. massive walk in shower and it massages your back as it's so powerful! Amazing. There is a fridge in the rooms, however it's not stocked with any drinks which is a shame. 2 bottles of water are provided. We did have a cockroach in our room the first night as we was on the ground floor rooms, these are not small and run extremely quick.. wasn't the best start trying to get it out. However one of the staff kindly came and got it out for us with no problems. Lots of mosquitos so had to wear lots of spray each night to stop getting bitten. This resort is very big so our room was very far out to keep walking back and fourth. Next time I will be requesting a closer room. The worst part of the holiday: Entertainers - they have a show each night at 9:15pm .. this is the worst thing I have ever watched. Usually Riu hotels provide good entertainment however this is awful. None of them make you feel involved or want to join in etc.. this is quite important as there is nothing else to do in the hotel at night time. Everyone seems to go off to bed at about 11ish because there is just nothing to do and it's pretty bad for younger people like myself. Overall the holiday was average .. I enjoyed myself as we got very hot weather however wouldn't recommended longer than a week at this hotel. More
Lovely relaxing holiday
We arrived on 8/6/17 at 23:30 & as mentioned in other reviews the Moroccan restaurant was kept open for us, which we were grateful for. Rooms - Good size & kept clean. Massive shower with plenty of hot water at a good pressure. Pools - Pretty to look at but not heated. Once in up to your shoulders was fine and actually quite refreshing. Food - Yes there was more or less the same selection every night +/- some "specials". However there was enough choice to have something different every night. If you choose to have the same thing every night that's down to you. The tagines were delicious and the salads spectacular. Do not expect the cooked breakfast to be the same as England this is Morocco after all. The fact that a Muslim country actually offers pork/bacon dishes still leaves me astounded. I wasn't expecting it and wouldn't have missed it if it wasn't there. Drinks - Beer was nice and the Gin was drinkable. Plenty of bars open from 10:00 till 00:00. Brooklyn bar was open till 01:00. Entertainment - The animation team were delightful and friendly and at times hilarious. We did not go to an actual show so cannot comment on that. Weather - 5 out of 7 mornings were completely cloudy. However we still managed to get burnt one morning. Do not underestimate the sun even if not visible. Once cloud cleared, usually by mid morning/early afternoon the sun was glorious. Beach - Wide and sandy. Sea too rough for me personally but there were plenty of people in it and plenty of life guards keeping watch. Late checkout - we were unable to secure a late checkout, however there were rooms available to use from 14:00-18:00 to shower and change in, leaving you free to use the pool and restaurant facilities right up to departure. We found this to be a satisfactory resolution to problem of being homeless from 11:00 on departure day. All in all a good holiday enjoyed by all. I would return to this hotel. At no point did we experience rudeness from any member of staff but then we are not rude or arrogant ourselves. One last point - Cats. There are quite a few cats roaming around the resort. There are dedicated feeding/watering kennels dotted around so there's no need to feel sorry and feed them. They seem to be well looked after and at no point did I ever see any mess made by them. Yes they did wander around hotel freely including the restaurant (occasionally) but I for one would rather see a cat walking round than a mouse or rat! I think this is an idea that a lot more foreign hotels should adopt. Thank you for a lovely time, we enjoyed your hospitality. More
Hotel not of high standard
Came here after holiday to eghpt got cAncelled, breakfast food isn't cooked and uncooked sausage and egg and Bacon. Lunch is no better but evening meal brill.
