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.
Having been to a number of 5 star hotels in Morocco, I don't seem to understand why this hotel is classed as a 4* rather than a 5*. The hotel is beautifully decorated with spacious rooms and a stunning lobby/reception. It has very rustic/modern concept. Service is impeccable and personalised and the food is fresh and constantly replenished. The lunch time chiringuito restaurant has stunning views over the ocean. If your looking for a relaxed, peaceful holiday in agadir don't look any further. Will definitely be back here! More
Fantastic first time holiday in Morroco
My daughter and I went to this hotel on the 03/09/15 and were really impressed by the cleanliness of the resort.
The staff where fantastic, even the gardeners were polite and up for a chat.
We met 2 or 3 of the bar/restaurant staff who were really friendly and helpful.
I should add that all staff are great but these guys went the extra mile.
I forget the guys name but he helped us with a little bit of morrocan and told us how to say what is written in the mountain.
He appeared everywhere and worked very long hours. This guy deserves a pay rise, I only wish I could remember his name.
Another barman was great, I got a little drunk one night and the barman looked after me and another guy from the animation team helped me back to my room. He deserves more money too.
On this holiday it was just me and my 17 year old blonde, very pretty daughter and I can honestly say I felt 100% safe letting her go where she wanted around the resort.
I can't say enough how good the service from all staff was.
Outside the back entrance are all the vendors who were also friendly and do take a no thank you as an answer. You might have to say it every time you go out but they do take no for an answer.
A guy called Mohammed outside in a straw hat is the best guy to go to for excursions and activities. We done quad bikes and dune buggies, camel rides, and paradise valley with this guy and he organised everything at discount prices, we got let down by Thomson for the
atlas mountain 4x4 trip, but Mohammed made up for it with a trip to paradise valley. Oh and the Segway scooters from the same guy were brilliant fun.
All in all a great time and would love to go back soon. More
Late but here are some photos from summer 2015. Would 100% recommend and would definitely go back! I would be cautious of the noise from the hotel club though, we were fortunate enough to be place far enough away so we couldn't hear it! But the staff are very pleasant and helpful. More

Firstly this hotel is situated on a fabulous long Sandy beach.when we stayed the rooms definitely needed a refurb although they are very spacious.We emailed before we stayed that we wanted a quiet room away from the noisy nightclub and we were given a room overlooking the pool pretty high up and a fabulous view of the beach.The guys on reception were friendly and chatty.Our issue with this hotel was the entertainment guy at the outdoor pool.We had a fabulous 1st week....totally relaxed....this all changed during our 2 nd week when new guests arrived...! Although there are plenty of signs 're the reserving of sunbeds.....this member of staff would reserve sunbeds for these new female guests the night before...! On complaining to this person we were met with a torrent of abuse from him and also his new female friends....!! Due to this abuse we then received daily we no longer felt comfortable at pool side and spent the remainder of our holiday away from the hotel....Our concerns raised with hotel management fell on deaf ears.....Due to this we will not visit this hotel nor a Riu hotel in the future.
If you are young female and plenty of money to tip I am sure he will look after you.More
stayed in October 2015 for 10 days after a short break in Dec 14. lovely hotel friendly staff who can't do enough for you to make your stay as good as they can, the food had an excellent range and all do to such a high standard.
This hotel is having a full refurbishment at the moment so we are looking forward to returning to have a look at the new hotel in the near futureMore
