The Riu Palace Tikida Agadir takes the term ‘luxury’ to a new level – a beachfront location and a chic pool scene are among its top credentials.
This hotel is right next to the beach, part of which is reserved for hotel guests, so it’s easy to flit from pool to sand throughout the day. It’s on Agadir’s shop and restaurant-lined main promenade, too.
A huge pool steals the show outside, while indoors you’ve got a handful of à la carte eateries and a spa.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, with optional dining at Fusion, Moroccan and Italian restaurants.
Unlimited selection of local and imported alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, served until 24.00.
Snacks at set times.
EIGHTH FANTASTIC HOLIDAY AT RIU PALACE TIKIDA AGADIR
This was our eighth holiday and went for my wife's birthday. Any review that says it does not cater for the English is rubbish. We have always been treated like all holiday makers with a professional approach by all the staff. We have had the same maid cleaning our room on about five of our visits and she was so good in the way she kept our room clean and tidy. Nothing is to much trouble for them. We ate in the main restaurant most of the time as the food is very varied and first class in taste and presentation. We used both the Moroccan and the Krystal (2) and received excellent service on all our visits. All the waiting staff in the speciality and main restaurants are very friendly and will do anything to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. The lunch time restaurant always had a good selection of food and we found the variety was first class.
It is a shame that we do not name individual members of staff for their service and helpfulness in the restaurants but would be unfair to name one or two when they all try and provide the best possible service at all times.
From Management to the Gardeners, from Waiters to Security , from Maids to Pool attendants. you can not find anyone that is'nt friendly. Treat them as you expect to be treated and you will have the most fantastic holiday going. We only arrived home this morning and already can not wait to be going back in December. This hotel in our mind is the best hotel we have had our holidays in over the years. Just one point I would like to make is if you have used hotels in the Caribbean where you get optics in the room, this does not happen in Africa, I think if this did happen it would spoil the environment within the hotel as the bar areas are a very good meeting place to chat and make new friends . Over the last two weeks we have met so many French, Belgium as well as other nationalities that we have had good times with even with some language barriers, We only speak English but managed to have some good laughs.
Hotel First Class, Chef's and Food variety excellent All staff from Management down friendly and helpful. People that find any fault must be very hard to please and I bet they do not live or get looked after as good at home .
Looking forward to more visits soon. XXXXXMore

Just returned from a week at this great hotel. The weather was fabulous, the hotel a great find. The hotel was spotless, and rooms an excellent size. The food above average but can understand if people get a bit fed up with it if staying for longer than a week. All drinks apart from the cocktails very good, but at times the bar service and service in the lobby and breakfast service left a bit to be desired. The young entertainment staff are a great asset to the hotel with their enthuisum and sense of fun. If you wish to use the gym the equipment is limited and needs updating, and I felt the indoor pool was a bit on the dark side to feel entirely safe in there. Wandered along the promenade a couple of times and although the sellers do approach they don't hassel you when you firmly say no. Having visited a number of Riu Palace hotels I do think they are pushing it a bit to call this five star, and think they have a little way to go before it can be truly five star, particuarly on the food and service front.
Overall a lovely week for some winter sun and we will return again.More

what a great hotel
this was our first trip to morocco so we looked long and hard at the various ratings given by people on tripadviser and chose this hotel,what a great decision.The staff and everyone at the hotel were super friendly and could not do enough for you.....Even the manager and his team were visible around the resort and would stop and talk to you and were always approachable...the drinks were all branded especially the spirits,jack daniels etc which made a nice change and the measures were always generous...the food was very very good with something for everyone.....we only had a week but would have no hesitation in going back....More
Would definitely recommend this wonderful Hotel!
We spent one week here this month. The first thing that struck us was how clean everything is. Check in was simple, we arrived late so went straight to our room rather than eating. The room was a Twin Room overlooking the Gardens, it was very comfortable and clean and upon request they turned our 2 beds into 1 enormous one with no trouble at all.
FOOD... We didn't use the speciality restaurants so on that I cannot comment. The normal restaurants however were very good. There was always a good choice at Breakfast and the restaurant down by the Pool for lunch was excellent. Always a lot of choice, something for everyone. We did find there were never any snacks at the snack bar so if you want something ask at the bar.
POOL.... Absolutely freezing! Lol. The swim up bar always had plenty of room because no one stayed in very long! It can be a bit boring as there was no music or entertainment at the Pool area, so take a book or iPod!
DRINKS.... If you want branded ask for it...if you ask for rum and coke you get house rum if you ask for Bacardi that's what you get. Bar service could be a little slow, but hey, your on Holiday! The Cava is very good.
Just outside there is a promenade, it's a lovely walk down to the Marina and is quite safe to do so day and night. There are shops and bars and street traders. All accept NO with no problem. We didn't use the beach so I can't comment on that.
If you go out the front of the Hotel there are shops over the road, you can haggle with these people, they quite enjoy the challenge!
Would we go back? Yes we would, the weather was brilliant, the Hotel was perfect and the people are very friendly.More

there is nothing you can possibly fault with this hotel. The rooms and standard of food is very good and caters for all tastes. The staff are without question, totally friendly and attentive, making the holiday perfect in every way. The "all-inclusive" certainly is. Bars are open 24 hours serve known brands not watered down local drinks. The hotel is situated directly on the beach, separated by the narrow prom. The beach is very clean although the currents this week have been a bit strong. Gentle breakers and good for surfers no doubt. A great family holiday overall and well worth coming. Tours are interesting but somewhat sales orientated of course.More
