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.

lovely hotel,lovely location,helpful and friendly staff
We have just returned from here and it is a lovely place to stay. There are a few things that could be improved which I will detail but on the whole great hotel. The rooms are gorgeous,spacious,spotless and a different towel and petal arrangement awaited us daily. Definitely go for a higher floor and overlooking pool or sea.we had room 327 and had a view of both from our balcony. The food is lovely in both main restaurants for all meals and it was lovely to be given a bottle of wine instead of a glass. There are a lot of steps in the hotel, which didn't affect us but would be a problem for some. The tables for two are far too close to one another if you want intimacy, it is difficult with them like this. There are a lot of cats around which we loved but if you don't like cats you would not like this. The staff are smashing, amil in the main restaurant was lovely to us and helped me with additional French words. The pool is really cold, only the brave few ventured in,myself included. Spa was lovely but you need to book ahead.More

Seen it, done it, wouldnt do it again
My partner 36 and I 32, booked to visit this hotel between Christmas and New Year 2014-2015. Upon arrival we were greeted with cocktails and were very quickly checked in and taken to our room, which was pleasant. The room was clean and quite spacious, room 207, which had a slight sea view and slightly overlooked the pool. We arrived for approximately 2pm which allowed us time to leave the bags and go to explore before the sunshine disappeared. Within the first hour of being there we noticed there were a large number of French people and very few English (as far as we could tell) and I must say I found them all rather rude. To which, through out the week they seemed to get worse and worse. I can say on two or three occasions my chair was 'shoved' out of their way in the restaurants, if they could not pass me. I point this out as this then had an impact on the service, it seemed if you weren't French, you were on your own. You could even tip the waiters and this wouldn't make a difference. This French theme also seemed to trip over to the food that was served. Whilst the food was very plentiful and served throughout the whole day, it was also very bizarre. For example a turkey tagine that was severed one night still had pink meat and whilst a typical British person would think 'umm pink white meat, maybe not' the French were devouring it. Along with the blue joints of beef, now I know some people like it this way it still shouldn't still be bleeding !! During the evenings there was entertainment however I must say karaoke singer at best. There were some English songs thrown in, however again this was mainly French. Oh and the English ones I would advise you not to sing along to as the verses and choruses are all over the show. I know that France and Morocco have a relationship however this did make the holiday not as enjoyable as it could have been. The few English people we did end up talking too all confirmed they felt the same and would not be returning. There is also a huge amount of cats at this hotel. They are in the restaurants, they sunbath on your sun loungers so if you are allergic to them please make sure you take antihistamines. They are a nightmare. They also have a fish restaurant here where you need to book at the beginning of the day should you wish to attend. We did this one night but quickly wished we hadn't bothered. A typical restaurant which you have to book into generally has a menu even if there is only a couple of choices however this one doesn't. It is a set menu. We arrived at 7PM and were quickly seated, within a few minutes a starter was placed in front of us. We had slices of raw fish with olive oil and capers over the top. I would like to point out not a sushi type of raw fish but more of a loin just cut into slices. I personally don't like raw fish so didn't eat it, the waiter seemed quite offended when he came to collect my plate. The main course was a fillet of fish filled with a curry sauce which was ok but again not something I would have chosen from a menu. The saving grace was the vanilla slice at the end. We quickly finished up and went to visit the main canteen. I am kind of glad we went as again it is an experience, however should you visit I would recommend taking a trip up to the English pub which is a 15 minute walk away. The place smells like fish and chips and you can get a proper drink !! which helps to balance the inner being. I stand by my last comments before we boarded the plane home 'I don't care what they say about the British being loud, rowdy and always drinking... At least we all have manners know how to say please, thank you and EXCUSE ME'More
would give this hotel 4 and a half stars just returned from Agadir for 4 nights stayed at this hotel. i wish we could have stayed longer. the property is on the beach with its own section of beach with a small beach bar. the food is excellent. the waiters are friendly and polite. they will leave the bottle of wine on the table . the food his hot and tasty.the spa was very reasonable . the only criticism i could find is the showers were a bit special. the water went everywhere. i understand it is having a refurb and maybe this will be sorted out. wouldn't stop me going back. already looking to go back agsin this year . love this hotel.More

A Wonderful New Year
We stayed at this hotel from 29/12/2014 until 12/01/2015 and were very sorry to leave. The whole holiday was WONDERFUL. The staff were very good and the room was beautiful. Its a lovely hotel not to big and flashy but beautiful and calming. The nightly entertainment was ENTERTAINING there was a singer or a band or both every night people happily got up danced whenever they felt like it. There was diversity type boy dance troupe there was the obligatory belly dancer and she was excellent. The whole evening time was geared for enjoyable fun. The food.....there was everything your heart desired on a daily basis, it was very good, you could ask to have a fresh omelette is you had gotten bored with the salads and hot dishes. Everyday there was a complete array of sweet desserts. If there is one negative its that there could have been a bit more variety with the cheese plates apart from that it was splendid. The pool area was delightful and pool bar service excellent. A small niggle over the sun beds. Like every where in the world there are people who refuse to see that you may not put your towel on a bed before 9am but I wasn't sure if they were blind deaf or stupid, but probably they were all three!! In the whole two weeks that was the only niggle....and the excursion the Touradot which is basically a visit to a second hand clothes market, the Agadir Experience was well worth doing and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A Lovely holiday and yes we will go back in October.More

is this realy a riu???
We travelled here on the 5th january just gone and stayed for 10 nights..on arrival at reception we were greeted with a big smile,and were soon on our way to our room.clean and tidy,fresh towels,pool view,nothing to complain about,nice.breakfast,lunch and dinner were all as expected,good mix of foods,served as they should be..the lack of the advertised italian restaurant was a little dissapointing,and the fact we had not been informed that long trousers only for evening meal was a little shocking at the time,as i usually wear 3/4 tailored shorts,and have never had a problem at any riu before,was very disturbing..then the real questions of the validity of the riu name,annimation or the lack there of,a daily list of 1 activity was posted on the bullitin,but nothing ever happened,confronting "moo moo"?the team of annimator,he said no one wanted to do anything,i asked to play tennis,he said we couldnt,you need obligitory shoes,i said i would get my shoes,he still refused,due to the fact someone else had booked it at 5pm,i said its 4.05 now and wanted 30 mins,no was the answer...asking the entertainment manager was useless too,he had no get up and go..me and 5 other guests got the volley ball and played in the empty pool,the fun police came,asking where we got the ball,it wasnt for the pool,and demanded its return..just no atmosphere at this hotel..the staff are fab,serving drinks before you even finnish you last one,cleaner are ace..even the lounge singer(named hulio by us) was shocking,but entertaining...if this was my first riu,i wouldnt return..must try harder..More
