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.

Adult only hotel
I picked this hotel because it had such good reviews. I didn't realise that it was a kid free hotel but I'm so pleased it was. It's such a relaxing experience not having screaming kids around you. Don't get me wrong, I love kids but they certainly come with stresses. This is the only holiday I've ever been on where I've been so relaxed from day 1. The reception staff are very helpful and will do almost anything to ensure you have a great stay. A word of warning ⚠️ - there is a nightclub attached to/very close to the hotel and if your room is above this club then believe me you will know about it. From 12 at night till 4/5 in the morning you will hear the beats. Just make sure that you let your travel company or hotel know that you do not want to be put in any room near to this. We stayed here for 1 week and the food in the restaurants were varied and decent. I dont know anyone that suffered any ill effects of the food whilst here. I personally really enjoyed everything. During the day Burgers, toasties and pizzas are made from scratch for you to snack on. They are beautiful too! The staff work very hard and tend to look after you a lot whilst you are here! They get paid only a small wage so if they have given you good service you can always tip whoever had looked after you at the end of your stay. I was advised not to tip everyday as it causes problems between the staff. Leave it till your last day and then tip the ones that deserve it. The rooms all are lovely and all have air con as well as a fan to help move the air around. On the first day we arrived; because we arrived late at night the hotel staff had put a light meal in our room so that we weren't going to bed hungry which I though was a nice touch. There is a fridge in your room which has water put in it daily. No complimentary bar in your room which is a first for me. I've stayed in Riu hotels before and normally there is always a complimentary bar in the room. It really didn't spoil anything though. The alcoholic drinks provided as part of your all inclusive package with the exception of wine is watered down in my opinion! I noticed when looking at the bottles that they were pouring the gin from that the plastic seals had been cracked which in turn means the pouring caps could be removed if needed! Read into that what you wish. Nevertheless the holiday was great and I'm sure you will love this place.More
Holidayed here for 10 nights with Thomson. Reps were there usual standard, useless, and I would say even the flight crew were pretty bad, Thomson really need to up their game. Hotel is beautifully, cleanliness cannot be faulted, however, if you want bright blue skies and sunshine, July is not the time to come, very grey and overcast with about 3-4 hrs of, maybe sun per day. Food is restaurant was quite bland very little on offer, with breakfast being one of the worst offerings. Waiting staff were lovely bar the weekend staff who were very rude and lazy. More
Hi All, So here comes my latest holiday review!!!! We flew from Manchester with Thomson, and had no issues whatsoever with the check in, flights, transfer or return journey. Everything on time, and no problems..... So all good with Thomson....thank you!!!! We arrived quite late at the Tikida Beach hotel, so didn't really get to see much of the hotel until the next morning, but check in was very smooth, and easy and Yassine on reception was brilliant at explaining the routine for breakfast and the general area and lay out of the hotel. We had requested a quiet room away from the night club and got exactly that, we were on the same level as the reception so really easy to get to the room, and the porter brought the luggage really quickly and didn't expect a tip either.... Be aware of the guys as the airport who will offer to take you to your bus though as they grab your case and pretend to work for the airline but they don't.... We are quite savvy so knew not to let them, but others ended up giving money that they could have saved!!!! The room was really big, 2 single beds, and a sofa, separate toilet with a bidet ( which we actually used as a sink for handwashing!!! ) and shower. The shower was lovely, and also has a hand held part as well. The cubicle was nice and big, one little downside was that id didn't drain very quickly so if you wanted to shower one after the other you were paddling in the water!!! Also the towels at Riu hotels are really small, and you only get one bigger and one hand towel, but you do get towelling robes at the Tikida beach as they have a spa downstairs, so we showered and then put the gowns on.... so it was ok.... and really that is the only down side to this hotel.... So it wasn't a massive deal. The safe is free to use, the TV is on the wall, but can be lifted up to put your HDMI cable in the back as we took a laptop to watch films when we didn't fancy the entertainment and the wi-fi is free and works all over the hotel and the beach. The food was totally fine, a little repetitive but what you would expect for an all inclusive to be honest, lots of fresh salad and rice dishes for lunch and dinner. loads of fish both hot and cold, lots of choices of meats as well. Steaks, pork, Lamb Chicken, Turkey..... Not all on the same day, but usually a choice of 2 or 3 of those. They did a chinese themed night as well, which was nice. lots of Cous Cous too.... Fresh fruit, dessets, ice creams which were lovely flavours. We didn't actually go in to the themed restaurants as we were more than happy with the buffett and neither of us went hungry. The snack bar offers pizzas, Paninis, burgers, salads, chips, and also a bit later in the afternoon pancakes and waffles. The bars were great too, the alcohol isn't as strong as UK drinks, but the beers and wines were pretty strong, and if you ask for wine at lunch you get the whole bottle and more if you want it, 2 choices of white and also red or Rose, Bottled water is given in the room and they expect you to take that down to the beach, the bar staff were a little reluctant to give you another bottle if you hadn't used the one from the room, but you also get a bottle with lunch and dinner as well, and the upstairs bar will also give you more bottles if you ask for them! We tried different cocktails and drinks and spent many an afternoon quite merry!!!!! The waiting staff are brilliant. Hicham who works in both the snack area and the evening restaurant is just lovely, and very friendly. He had a table waiting for us at lunchtimes, with an umbrella, and our drinks ready and waiting.... and he didn't expect tipping either!!!! We loved Mohammed who collected glasses around the pool and also brought drinks to you around the pool as well, as did Marounna, ( sorry I know I haven't spelt that right!!! ) Again neither wanted tipping.... The entertainment team do a wonderful job, Soufiane, you are amazing, and even though people don't want to join in with your games and aqua gym you still talk to people and ensure that they are enjoying their holiday. You are a total assett to the Riu company, and I truly hope that you are there when I come back one day. You work all day and in the evening as well..... The singer in the evening who has had many a mention on here really is what people describe him as!!!! But for one or 2 nights it's really ok.... He tries very hard, and after a few drinks he's actually quite good!!! I even got up dancing one night!!!! But he is very repetitive and I understand why people have made the comments that they have!!! One evening they had an acrobatic group on as well as the singer, who were pretty good to be honest, the fire eater was a touch boring, but the other guys were great.... The pool towels are a decent size and Redo in the hut gets himself about talking to people as well, and I know a few people used him as a guide in the evenings to go up to the mountains, which was sweet of him.... He always makes sure that your towels are fresh, but it is just one towel per card, but they suit the purpose and you can change them as often as you want!!!! The sun beds were not an issue, we found the same spot most days and even though there were a few beds reserved where people didn't come back that early, it didn't seem to affect people finding a bed, but I don't think the hotel was completely full. The day beds are very comfortable, and yes people do take some of the cushions off, and use on the normal sunbeds, but there were lots of pillows to be used and none of the day beds had no pillows so I think those that have made a moan about that need to get a grip!!!! There was also another lovely lad called Moussa who came and played cards in the daytime as well, he was brilliant and really chatty too. Always looking out for us and making sure we had a great holiday. The pool was great, a good size and not really that cold either, we didn't go in the smaller one but both looked clean and well card for. The beach was lovely, really clean, a few sellers there who try to catch you as you walk down, but no issues with the ones outside the hotel, and the security guard is there to keep an eye on things.... We bought a few bits from Rasta man, who was brilliant and happy to haggle with you. One problem I did have was a lot further down the beach towards the marina, when a guy agreed on a price with me, but then changed his mind as my friend started walking again, and he snatched the tops from me scratching my arm and swearing at me as he walked off. I spoke to the security guard about it, and he went down and spoke to him, and told him that it was unacceptable and that he needed to watch himself as they would remove him from his spot. He apparently wanted to come and apologise to me but the security guard told him to stay away and not come near the hotel or me!!! So I felt really safe, and looked after, and I think it was a one off incident that certainly hasn't affected my experience or my feelings towards going back to Morocco or haggling about prices!!!! There were many little shops nearby, and the Souk Lhad is just a taxi ride away which cost us a total of 30 DHM return ride, which is not even £3!!!! The Souk was a great experience and highly recommend going to it if you want some souvenirs, but make sure you tell the driver to take you there and not for souvenirs... They tell you it's the fruit market, but once inside there are loads and loads of stalls and many bargains to be had!!!!! We had a really amazing time there, and the only little bit of drama was an American group who decided to wake up the entire hotel with the shouting at 4AM one morning, my friend told them to pipe down and they did, but the whole hotel seemed to know she had done it!!!! They were all congratulating her the next day!!! Hahaha!!! One other little comment is something I've read questions about on here and that is that the room has no tea or coffee making facilities and no ironing board or iron.... The bar staff happily gave us hot water and milk and sugar to make our own drinks though and knew it was going back to the room so it wasn't a big problem to be fair. I'm not sure if they had an ironing room or not as we didn't ask. The decor in the hotel is amazing, lots of wooden animals, and figurines, loads of old style lights, and piano in the bar, the entire set up was just fantastic and I cannot wait to go back!!!! If you can find fault with this hotel and the staff then you must be a really picky person!!!! We went with really open minds after some of the things we had read on here, but we were really so happy with everything. The people who had rooms over the night club were offered a move if they wanted it, and there were English and the Americans next door to us throughout our stay so defo not reserved just for the French as some people on here have implied!!!!! Thank you so much to the management, the cleaners, the bar staff, the waiters, the entertainment team, the gardeners, the whole entire team at Riu Tikida beach for a totally brilliant holiday, but special thanks have to go to Yassine, Hicham, Mohammed, Soufiane, Mauoranna, and Moussa.More
tiki da beach is situated in beach front position the hotel is beautiful ,the food is OK not always hot the daytime activities are available but not well advertised french bowls darts aqua aerobics archery and others but you must ask Sofrain and mom if you want to do them the night entertainment is every night front 9-11pm but on a weekly programme same band every night but quite good got everybody up and joining in there are 2 disco bars which aren't part of all inclusive I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday the weather was great I think other reviews of this hotel could put you off but be open minded if you want a party atmosphere this is not for youMore
Not the hotel we thought that it was going to be
This hotel tries to put guest into room that are over the disco or the evening entertainment. These room are not suitable for anybody. We had three rooms in 24 hours and we could not contact our rep with Thomson's so I had to ring home to talk to somebody. They asked us if we were happy with our third room which was 22 and we said yes, he said we should be happy that we had been upgraded to overlooking the pool and just accept it. Not the right answer. Finally saw the rep 4 days after arriving and he was more that useless. The room that we were given was good and very clean. The food in the main restaurant is of a poor quality but the lunch time was much better. The staff try there best but can honestly say that we would not recommend this hotel. It is also very obvious that the drinks are watered down and the wine is disgusting.More
