ClubHotel Riu Tikida Dunas  

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.

Do not be so picky!!

We arrived to this hotel on the 7th of July and our stay was for 11 nights. Arrival was dreaded due to a whole bus load of us arriving, however we thankfully got off first and managed to avoided the line of people. Room was lovely. Huge. Clean and exactly what was wanted. We stayed in block 2000 which backed on to the road, slight noise was heard but nothing to complain about. The room was in perfect walking distance to everything. The pool area and grounds of the hotel were very nice. The sunbed situation is real. If you want a sunbed the sad fact of it is that you will have to get up and put your towels on the bed or tip the pool boys ( which we did not do). This situation regarding the sunbeds is due to the amount of people staying in the hotel, it should be expected at this time of the year. Swimming pools were lovely. The food and drink was fine!! I am not sure what people expect when they book an all inclusive holiday. It is your typical buffet food, yes i can agree at times it is like a cattle market, but most of these places are always the same. There is plenty of food and choice, with very little wait for what you wanted. The only bad area to comment with regarding food is the staff around you. Before you can even finish your last mouthful they swoop in like seagulls to clear the plate in which i find incredibly rude and makes you feel like they want you gone. The drinks in the hotel are again fine! The alcohol is unbranded which was known to us before going and reading up online. If you want branded alcohol stay in the Hotel Rui palace down the road. The cocktails were nice, yes they were not the cocktails you would expect from bars in London but they do the job just fine. Fizzy drinks are average out of a machine but better than being served warm from a bottle. Would recommend drinking wine at dinner that was enjoyable. Staff and Animation. Staff were friendly, helpful and most of all let you get on with your holiday. Animation team = irritating. They walk around the pool twice a day morning and afternoon, greeting majority of guest. This i found to be forced and annoying. It felt like they did not really want to say hello yet almost felt they had to. Surrounding area. Would 100% recommend to go out and do a trip. Book through Thompson in the hotel as it is most safe. The Souk ( market) is hell!! Speaking from someone who has been to similar countries this is far by the worst experience of my life. Clutching on to my bag in fear of being pick pocketed and being dragged in to shops in which i did not want to go in by everyone! If you go, go when you know it is not going to be so busy! I would avoid, stick to the local shops outside hotel. The area outside the hotel is nice. In the evening it is lovely to walk along the beach. If you walk about 25 minutes right of the hotel you reach a McDonald's, Pizza hut and the best ice cream parlour! It does the most amazing ice cream for very good price. Going outside the hotel is safe just make sure you are with people as we were offered illegal substances several times. Overall the hotel is exactly what we wanted. Yes it had a few negatives but most hotels do. The wifi was awful, and you would think for a hotel that size they would have sorted it. So do not expect much from that. The weather was lovely. Some days it was overcast but we were informed this is due to where the hotel is. It is right next to the Atlantic ocean. Do not be so picky, the hotel is lovely and people are 100% getting what they paid for!More

Be attentive – the hotel deceives at an exchange of money and steal from number!

Be attentive – the hotel deceives at an exchange of money and steal from number! Had a rest in this hotel from June 16 to June 28, 2016. The RIU hotel was chosen not incidentally as experience of rest in hotels of this network is available also memoirs only positive! Unfortunately, it doesn't belong to this hotel. And now is more concrete: 1. An exchange of money on a reception: the staff of hotel smiling don't forget not only to ask how are you, but also also not to give the rest of couple dirham. At recalculation of money and the instruction on the fact that there aren't enough 2 more (10) dirham do the surprised eyes, recognize the mistake and add a coin (or notes). The most surprising that not only the male personnel make these focuses, but also the beautiful girl was caught! Therefore, ladies and gentlemen if you earn the money with an honest and hard work, be not too lazy to count the money. I think, many will agree with me if service at service of guests deserves respect and a praise, then nobody will be too lazy to thank the one who made rest remarkable! But only not similar open theft! 2. 2. And now about theft behind closed doors. Number 1118. Have stolen the mobile phone from number. I understand that many will tell that it is guilty, but I will repeat (see above), I knew service quality in the RIU network. As it was: the cleaner (for some reason another, and more we did not see it) has cleaned up the room in the morning when we left for breakfast. Though at us always cleaned up during the lunchtime (shopping mall I had a rest 10 days, I can tell the schedule of cleaning precisely and who exactly for these 10 days cleaned up). Phone for the period of our breakfast was recharged in number. After a lunch we have gone to walk, I left phone on a bed, that have already cleaned up the room and will not come any more. Two hours of perfectly spent time out of hotel have ended with disappointment in hotel. Phone was gone. And now the most interesting: after long attempts to find out from administration who came into number during our absence especially as employees have promised to check listing of passes on an electronic key it has become clear – the CLEANER! On a question and that it did there when it has cleaned up in the morning, I have delivered water, I have replaced towels and toilet accessories in case of what it was witnessed by members of my family, I was told that it long works in hotel and to it there are no claims! WOW! I consider that it not an explanation! In hotel business it is not admissible to put personnel above interests of guests! Especially nobody tried to penetrate into a situation! On the future: recommendation for administration of hotel – I ask you to instruct personnel that in case of theft of phones is desirable that employees took out sim cards and left to owners. The bitterness from loss will be less painful! Recommendation to tourists – call the police. I have thought of it, only when have arrived home. Total: I still recover working contacts, some contacts are lost probably forever. And all the rest – all as always: all inclusive – have a rest and relax! Wishes: I consider that hot drinks (tea) will be out be not superfluous at a dinner. In number 1118 it is good the story prints as naked walls create feeling of emptiness. Summary: for the fourth day rest has been spoiled. Whether I will go to Marroko, to the country of the pink cities and the cool ocean? Most likely is NOT PRESENT also only thanks to the staff of CLUB HOTEL RIU TIKIDA DUNAS hotel. If it is not clear why – read the report anew.More

Don't have high expectations or you will be disappointed....

We are currently at this hotel as I'm writing this....I will try and give as much detail as possible..... ARRIVAL arrival was pretty straight forward ....receptionist pleasant and informative ....signed paperwork and was told bags would be taken to our room....this didn't happen straight away even though we were the only ones to arrive at the time we did ....but no big hassle ROOMS Rooms are lovely and spacious we stayed in block 2000 which the front is the view of the road and the balcony overlooks the gardens....this block was two mins from reception and easily accessible to everywhere. The room itself is cleaned everyday and sachets of toiletries replenished. We had inter joining rooms for us and two teenagers which was great as have them their independence but I still knew they were safe. The beds are twin and rock hard (I'm not complaining as love a hard bed so for me this was great)....if you have a child staying in the room there is a sofa but it doesn't pull out and doesn't look very comfortable! Ask for a camp bed.... Don't ask for this block of you are a light sleeper as the balcony overlooks a pond that has frogs....they might be small but blooming Nora they make some noise! GROUNDS The grounds and pools are kept immaculate pool area is always washed down every morning and gardeners keep the grounds looking lovely......there are lots of cats that wander around the hotel ...they are totally harmless and the hotel provides what they call a cat cafe where they are fed appropriately POOL the pool and the dreaded sunbed phenomenon ....is it an issue getting a sunbed if you come down at 9am? Yes but this is no different to most holiday resorts....I come down to the pool at 530am every morning as like to enjoy the peace for a few hours as I don't sleep well.... I always stay with my sunbeds but do see people coming down in their jimjams....all competing for what I can only describe as the "Sun-Lounger Olympics" with dozens of guests racing for loungers sprawling their towels over the sun loungers in a bid to secure a prime spot for the day....it really is great to watch!......the unfortunate thing is a lot of people will do this but then won't be seen until late afternoon to use the beds which seems unfair!.....staff will take tips and lay your towels out for you in your prime position ....and will move people's towels to accommodate these tipping guests....you see a lot when your up at the crack of dawn! There are two large fresh water pools and one smaller seawater pool....so nice that it doesn't get too crowded FOOD & DRINK Ok it's all inclusive so it is what it is!....is it repetitive? Yes.....is it generally cold ? Yes.....there's always lots of salads pizza and chips burgers etc and if you love fish great...I'm allergic unfortunately so my choice has been quite limited ....they do a little carvery section where they offer meat of different choices great If you like pink raw turkey this I have seen on numerous occasions ! Not good!......the alcohol is standard not branded but they will give you large measures if you ask.....cocktails are dire come from a machine and taste horrendous (in my opinion).....the soft drinks from the machine are generally always flat but as I've said it is what it is.....we have been to many all inclusives and are surprised at the lack of snacks offered throughout the day very limited and nothing to eat after 1030 when the main restaurant closes! Never experienced a lack of food before as we have done here! RESTAURANTS There is only one buffet place to eat for breakfast ....two buffet places for lunch and one buffet for dinner although there are two other restaurants you can book for dinner the Moroccan and the Asian ....we have eaten in the Asian but again buffet service I accepted this to be a la carte and would have been nice to have waiter service however you even have to get up to get your own drink! The lunch buffet is like a school dinner canteen no tables are laid and no waiter service for drinks and it's a free for all....me being English know at times English people can be rude but I only saw common curtesy and being English we understand what a queuing system is....the French and locals seem to have a rule that even if you've been standing for five minutes waiting to get to your chosen dish they sure as hell will jump right in front of you and take that piece of meat you've been waiting patiently for! The kids have no manners and it seems acceptable that they can run around disturbing you screaming and their parents act like they don't belong to them( not the hotels fault but come on it's a restaurant not a playground)....disappointed at dinner that all you are offered is wine or beer and soft drinks if you choose to get up and get them yourself ......no waiter service at all except when they stand waiting like Hawks ready to prey as you take that last bite the fork goes down and before you know it they steal your plates away from you without you even having a chance to say you have finished! Numerous times I see kids picking up pizza with their hands then throwing it back because they decide they don't want it! LOCATION If you walk out of the back of the hotel there's a 7km stretch of beach.....there's security on the gate to ensure only hotel members re enter the hotel ......you can walk down the promenade to the marina which is about half hour and there are bars and restaurants there.....if you go out of the front of the hotel and turn left and walk about 15 mins there are loads of shops selling souvenirs fake bags Tshirts etc and there's an English pub .....if you want a cab down to the marina don't pay anymore than 50dirham and again if you want to go to the souk again do t pay more than 50dirham.....there's also a little train that takes you down to the marina if you don't want to walk.....other than that nothing else to do although there is a night pub in the next Riu hotel but reviews are pretty dire ..... ENTERTAINMENT Entertainment team try hard but it's the same thing everyday at the pool darts water aerobics and water volleyball they really do need to expand this ...entertainment in the evening wow....and that's not used in a good sense!......there's a karaoke bar which nobody sings in but they do have a band playing in the evenings which is good CASH Take sterling and change in the hotel there is no atm at this hotel ....we traipsed for three hours trying to find an atm that worked as the nearest one was broken and the other three we tried the Internet connection was so bad the transaction couldn't be made so we wasted time going in and out of hotels trying to find one that worked! Not what you want to be doing on holiday! SPA We booked for a hamman scrub and clay mask and couples massage for me it was a horrible experience ..my body was scrubbed within an inch of its life it was so hard it felt like my body was on fire where as my partners was a lot gentler even though i kept saying it really hurt she took no notice .....the massage lasted about twenty minutes for 900 dirham it was the worst massage I've ever had we couldn't relax as the two women doing it talked and laughed to each other the whole way through it ..... STAFF I have to say HASSAN (entertainment) is amazing he's funny not pushy and tells you it's his birthday everyday to try and get you to join in games a really lovely guy CHOAB is so kind he works everywhere in the restaurants and the bar and nothing is too much trouble yesterday we see him wheel a disabled man around in his wheelchair getting his food for him laughing and joking just a really lovely boy and finally AMRINE ( not sure I've spelt that right but works in the evening bar) so friendly and funny and makes every holidayer feel special WEATHER In the ten days we were here we had two days of sunshine.....althoughit was always warm.......we had read that it may take a while for the sunshine to break through but sometimes this didn't happen till 5pm vey disappointing but obviously not the hotels fault all I will say is even though there's no sun due to clouds pack the factor 50 on as you will still get burnt! OVERALL holiday was ok .....could have been loads better with tweaking......would we return unfortunately not! More

NSP1975,

Good but not great!

I visited the Riu Dunas mid June till early July for 11 days. Flight was delayed but when we arrived to the hotel we were kindly greeted by staff. Check in was quick and we were given our keys. Room was big and spacious and also very clean. Bathroom was also the same. The only thing I say about the room is maybe it's worth putting other drinks in the mini fridge apart from water. Bags were delivered and a good night sleep first night. Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner was average. Your typical buffet food (it was nice) but boring after a while. The speciality restaurants were okay (Asian the best out of both) however the Asian was closed for the whole weekend (not sure if it was just the weekend we were there) but not great when your paying money and your tight for choice anyway. I would have preferred these restaurants if we were given a menu rather than buffet style. Something to consider. The pools were lovely! Very clean and a good temperature. Get down early for beds. We decided to get down at 7am every morning to get a good bed otherwise your left with the rubbish ones. Didn't sun ourselves on the beach however heard it was nice. If you walk outside the hotel from the back, the prom is lovely to walk along. Be aware you will get hassled however you just have to learn to ignore if you don't want to be hassled. We did rent little electric bikes which was so much fun and you got to wiz down the prom. The jet ski's are also good fun if you purchase from someone outside the hotel. We went on 4 trips through Thompson. Camel rides, Fantasia show, 4X4 atlas trip and buggies. Our favorite being the Fantasia show and well worth the money. Didn't think much of the 4X4 trip. Our reps were very kind and helpful. The entertainment at the hotel wasn't the best. It needs improvement and was very poorly executed at the best of times however was something to do and improved every night. They do work really hard and you have to cut them some slack. They are all very friendly. The drinks were okay however nothing was branded. You didn't get much choice. I would say this hotel is good, however not sure I would visit again just so I can experience what other hotels offer however was great value for money and was okay. Thanks again! More
