Riu Tikida Beach has a prime spot on Agadir’s sandy beach. It’s also got one of the best pools in the neighbourhood.
This place wins big points for its location. It’s on a sandy beach that stretches for 9 kilometres, and the hotel has its own stretch. And when you fancy venturing out, it’s just a 15-minute walk to Agadir’s shops and souk.
The huge pool is the star here, closely followed by the restaurant line-up, which includes a gourmet seafood place. Activity-wise, there’s a good mix of sports and classes, while evenings are all about live shows. And whatsmore, the hotel is getting a refurbishment ready for summer 2016.
A little cool at night but a lovely hotel would deff go again great beach and good size pools and very good staff. Entertainment was also good in late bar with a group called brooklyn made you feel very welcome ( good nights )More

Me and my partner stayed at Riu Tikida Dunas, as part of our stay we were meant to get free entry to Tikida beach nightclub. When we arrived 23rd of Jan the door men were very rude and clearly did not want us there. He tried to charge us a lot more then other customers evan though we were meant to get free entry.More

Really good service, very good value for money.
This hotel is great, the food and service is good and it's excellent value for money. The
hotel is kept extremely clean. The restaurant manager was lovely, he always spoke to us and made sure we were looked after. The food was lovely too and the head chef came out a number of times and asked how the food was.
On arrival we were given a non alcoholic cocktail while we checked in because we
didn't check in till 2am there was a knock on the door and we were given a tray full of snacks which I thought was a nice touch. The man that helped with the bags and brought the snacks to the room was really nice and he still remembered our names when we saw him again 5 days later. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff in this hotel are of a very high standard. I must say this is the 3rd Riu I've stayed in and I'm yet to be disappointed what all these hotels have in common is the very high standard of service. Also there was a really nice waitress in the downstairs bar that served us when the entertainment was on, she was brilliant. The entertainment around the pool was good and the guy in charge was a good laugh. The entertainment in the evening was a bit hit and miss but I did like the singer he got everyone involved.
The bad points
The hotel needs to be updated badly.
The beach towels were a bit grubby and had seen better days and sometimes you had to wait for them at the pool. There is a bar attached to the hotel and the music is so loud. We could hear it up in the room and it would go on till 2am. I couldn't sleep so went in there one night and I have never been to a bar with music that loud. It was strange. There is also a night club attached to the hotel but you couldn't hear the music coming from the club only the bar.
This is nothing to do with the hotel it's self but be careful what taxis you get into. I had a very bad experience with a very rude taxi driver who thought I was going to be intimidated into paying over the odds for my taxi ride.
Me and my partner had a really amazing stay at this hotel. We arrived late at night but we were welcomed with food waiting for us at the room. The room was great, very spacious and kept at a great temperature with the air conditioning. We were lucky enough to stay in a room with a beach view and it was stunning by day and by night, with the message in the hills being visible from the balcony.
The only downfall about the room would be the shower, it is fed from the taps which is not problem but then the fixture for it is on the side of the wall and it is not strong enough to keep it in position, which means most of the time you are battling between positioning and shower pressure to get it to stay in the right place.
All staff were very friendly and I could not fault the service we received. The all inclusive package was good with lots of varieties of food available throughout all hours of the day which would keep anyone happy. The all inclusive drinks are great too with a large selection available, the only thing that I would say is that the drinks are quite small by the pool and you need to do a couple of trips if, like me, you enjoy a few sherbets throughout the day time (all inclusive can be a challenge for us Brits ay).
I would recommend not only this hotel but also the location of Agadir to anyone that enjoys travel but wants something different from your usual Brit travel (Spain, Greece, Portugal etc). There's plenty to do in the day activity-wise which means that you are never bored but then there's the added culture that you get to soak in that you don't typically get in most tourist destinations in Europe.More
