Hotel Riu Tikida Beach  

Riu Tikida Beach has a prime spot on Agadir’s sandy beach. It’s also got two 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.

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 has had a refurbishment ready for summer 2016.

11 day stay 30th June 2016

I absolutely loved my recent stay at this hotel! I couldn't fault anything about the hotel - the food was amazing, the cleanliness was at a very high standard, the staff where all extremely friendly and helpful, the only thing that lacked was the entertainment slightly. We are a young couple that visited the hotel on 30th June for 11 days, we wasn't aware that during this time it is Ramadan, so it was very quiet and the promenade and all shops where closed outside. There wasn't initially any music around the pool however once Ramadan had finished, music began playing, the entertainment changed and the area was so much busier! One thing that I was disappointed about however was that the pool bar doesn't serve any drinks at all - it only provides you with your towels. Overall the hotel blew my expectations, it has just recently been refurbished and I personally feel that with a few tweaks with the entertainment, this hotel will deserve another star! I most definitely will be returning to Riu Tikida Beach for another holiday!More

Absolutely Perfect

Me and my other half went here for our first holiday together. It was absolutely lovely! The staff were very attentive and friendly, there were three different restaurants you could go to aswell which made dinners much more interesting! There was a variety of all inclusive drinks to choose from aswell! The hotel is right next to a beach which is beautiful! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the maids were fantastic! I cannot recommend this holiday enough! There are excursions you can go out and do aswell which are helped to be organised by the hotel! There are also a couple of bars either side of the hotel (not loud and can't be heard from the hotel itself) but for those who want to have a drink past midnight (when the bars in the hotel stop serving) you can go next door! This is a great resort for couples, retired and young! 5* More

Natalie W,

Save your money and go to GREECE! Terrible food and 'entertainment'

Stayed at RIU TIKIDA BEACH in June 2016 - Hotel has a nice modern interior/decoration and it was a clean recently renovated spacious room with a mattress that's ok - but this country is not one that I would visit again. And the hotel definitely needs improvement! The country has a nice climate and the hotel could be so good - but has poor management who do not seem to care about English guests! German and French guests are spoken to and treated in a preferential manner and to be honest were very irritating and rude in general! The reception staff offer no useful information and seem to enjoy causing problems and sending you to shops that don't exist - especially Nahla (the supervisor) who I found very spiteful, unpleasant and unhelpful! BEWARE of the NON EXISTENT INTERNET SIGNAL also - this was a major problem for me as it was not made clear that you had to sit in the reception area as that was the only area that it worked! Virtually NO INTERNET by the pool and none in rooms!!! This made the holiday unbearable for me as it was so boring! NO tea or Coffee making facilities in the rooms - so not up to European standard “Entertainment’ consists of very poor karaoke style band who sing along to awful French disco pop or Barry Manilow and Neil Diamond/Elvis! No entertainment for anyone below the age of 40!! The ‘entertainment’ was watching the older guests prancing around - it was very comical! This hotel is definitely for older people if you are over 60 you will be fine with the dull atmosphere and out of tune piano player! The food is the worst that I have ever tasted in a RIU hotel - the ‘vegetarian section’ was; Pizza, brussel sprouts, chips, boiled carrots and plain rice! Absolutely NOT acceptable! It seemed as though the kitchen staff did not know how to prepare food to an acceptable standard or for tourists. Food was often cold, vegetables hard and the dishes were mainly cous cous and steamed slimy vegetables in chicken broth in tangines. The fish had not had the bones removed and the local dishes were very strange according to my partner! The chips - which is the easiest food to get right were either cold or hard! Even my partner was disappointed with the food and he NEVER complains and eats almost anything!! Be warned that Morocco DOES NOT understand Vegetarian food or tourism very much!! And that the food is the type that you get in a cheap cafe or school dinner canteen - poor presentation and quality! There was also those awful nice looking desserts that all taste the same of cheap sugary sponge! I fail to understand how RIU have given their name to this hotel - Be warned that this is not the same standard that you usually get from a RIU hotel. The staff were generally ok and tried hard to be polite but not many understand English and it's correct that the French and German guests get preferential treatment. THOMSON rep is a ‘fob off merchant’ so don't expect any service from him and his supervisor is A very nasty woman (sandra I recall) who thinks that she can either intimidate you or ignore you !- I had my time wasted by her on several occasions! I just gave up in the end! Don't waste your time transferring to the RIU DUNAS Hotel next door as this is worse - it's like BUTLINS - full of chavs and screaming kids - at least the Tikida hotel was adults only! Apparently the Tikida Palace is the better of all the RIU hotels - so im told There is the usual sunbed fiasco - get up early and reserve one on the opposite side of the pool or the sun goes in on the other side at around 12 - hence the empty beds on the hotel side. We had an invasion of ants in the room and if you leave a drink uncovered something dives in it in seconds! Mosquito spray needed as I got bit badly if I didn't use it. The all inclusive ‘alcohol’ is the cheap local ‘gut rot’ spirit type and the ‘cocktails’ are out of a machine! Its really irritating not having a pool bar or being able to go and get a drink from the bar yourself - so sometimes we ordered a few drinks as the wait is long in the evening.The pool bar has been closed and is the towel room. Again - these are the gripes that are not typical of RIU standard hotel and are not acceptable for the price that we paid! And the hotel has a vast amount of improving to do - the management do NOT listen to complaints and seem very inexperienced. Morocco is a very hot and very dull country and everyone wants to sell you a load of ‘tat’ or expects a tip! which gets irritating! We felt like we were being exploited everywhere we went! And the market (Souk) is not for the ‘faint hearted’ as the sellers are very aggressive - some of the guests were very upset after visiting - luckily we have already been to similar so we know how to handle it and walk away with a bargain after haggling - which can be tiring! Camel rides are awful and 2 hours of pain is not my thing - my partner did it and regretted it! The Berber night is not too bad if you like cous cous and eat meat - again I struggled as Morocco just does not do vegetarian food! Morocco is just learning tourism I suspect - The standards and food is nowhere near as good as a holiday in Greece or Spain! Great for 'designer goods' and leather jackets though - It's a shame that's the only good thing! This country could be so much better! Oh I forgot to mention the really great scooters that you can hire on the promenade - expensive (£10 per hour) but fun! That was probably the highlight of the holiday! I would never go to Morocco again or to a RIU hotel as I don't trust THOMSON Holidays anymore. I have been lied to several times now by THOMSON holidays who take your money and run and are not interested in answering complaints! I have complained and claimed a part refund for this holiday - I am awaiting a reply after 6 weeks! I wanted to give an honest review and unfortunately I have to agree with all of the negative comments already made! Save your money and go to Greece or Cyprus - you will be welcomed and have a better time where all tourists are treated equally and the foods better!More


Lovely refurbishment!

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel - we have loved it in the past and we still do. The changes were brilliant (although I did miss the waterfall). the main change in the rooms was to the bathroom. Always a lovely large space, there is now a beautiful shower with lots of power in the water delivery. Our room overlooked the swimming pool (as we had requested before our visit) and had a lovely balcony with a great view of the pool and the sea. The staff were - as we have always found in Riu hotels - fluent in English, very helpful and extremely friendly. Again, as usual, the food was great and there was enough choice for everyone. We were happy with the choices especially since we like to try different foods when we are in different countries. The fish restaurant was very popular, and the fish was cooked to perfection. We didn't try the Moroccan restaurant since we were only there for a week and we ran out of time, but reports from other holiday-makers were excellent. The Wifi around the hotel, in the rooms and in the grounds was easily accessible and fast. The whole holiday was lovely and relaxing and we'll definitely be back for a 4th visit. As for Riu hotels - well - we'll see you in Torremolinos in September!More


Nice hotel

We had a standard room all inclusive, the staff was lovely and helpful, the room was good and clean. The buffet was ok with, we loved the sea food diner in chiringuito restaurant. The hotel is for adult only so if your are looking for a quiet place to rest it's the place to be. More
