Riu Palace Tikida Agadir  

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.

Could be 5 star if .........

My wife and I were looking for a Winter sun break to somewhere we had not travelled to before. Agadir seemed the ideal with not to long a travel time. After looking at the various comments on this site we plumped for the Palace ( we have used Riu a number of times previously). 1. Reception personnel we very pleasant and accommodating, although we had to ask twice for a shower gel refill. However we had a problem with our safe and this was sorted very promptly. 2. Our room was spacious with a settee and chairs and good sized balcony (good room 3044), nicely decorated, great black out curtains.all the normal facilities and was kept extremely clean and tidy. Stocks of drinks for the fridge were replaced daily and there were ice machines on some floors. 3. Foyer bar was clean, tidy and well stocked (even with Jack Daniels and Bombay Sapphire gin). However the staff should be trained to recognise who was next to be served even when the bar is busy but this did not happen even when there were more staff than customers. The same thing at the pool and beach bars. Too much "who is next ?". 4. Pool area was well kept and very clean with reasonable waiter service. Whilst I appreciate that the aqua aerobics needs a certain amount of beat type music I don't think it is necessary during other times of the day when people are trying to relax, read or sleep. Fortunately the hotel was not completely full but even after an early breakfast all the best placed sun loungers had been "towelled !!!". At other Rius at which we have stayed there are notices around the pool " SUN LONGERS CANNOT BE RESERVED" why not here ? 5. Food for breakfast and dinner in the buffet restaurant was varied, well prepared, well presented and tasty with something for everyone's taste. 6. We had an early start for our excursion to Taroudannt and there was sufficient cold food available. 7. The KRYSTAL restaurant was a bit of a let down with no atmosphere, a limited menu and a waiter who wanted you to give him your choice almost as soon as possible as though there was a time limit for people dining (after all it is supposed to be A La Carte not a Beefeater). 8. The Beach bar for lunch was more than adequate but if you want to sit outside make sure you're there early or leave it until 14:30 before you eat. 9. The beers and wines were very good for an all inclusive holiday. 10. Entertainment in both the main bar usually good easy listening performers and theatre also good from the professionals. 11 We wandered along the promenade but didn't use the beach although it looked well kept. Overall a very pleasant stay and would consider a return a some stage. Everyone to who we spoke had also enjoyed their stay. Other information. Don't bother with the Taroudannt excusion a waste of time and money. Agadir Experience was more interesting and far cheaper.More

Not too bad but

We spent a week from 15th Sept . We arrived at 10pm and took 45 minutes to check in, no problem as they gave us complimentary cocktails . The room we had was a double on the 1st floor. It smelt of damp and the shower water would not drain from the bath . This they fixed in 2 days . The room was handy for the entrance to the pool and we could use the garden doors to nip in and out. The beds were comfortable but it was 2 single beds. The 3 restaurants were good. Best for location was the Italian as this was overlooking the beach and was nice to eat with the sun set. The main restaurant was good for breakfast . We had dinner there after our 1st full day and was throwing up that night, but took it easier the next day and recovered. The morrocan restaurant was nice although only served meat and not many vegetables. The fusion restaurant was fair and my soup had no prawns. The lamb was good. Puddings in both were excellent. I would recommend eating in the 3 restaurants for diner. The staff tried very hard to please and were great. Tipping was not necessary . The lobby was huge and created a great impression. Overall the pool and beach were great and the hotels best features. Good hotel but not quite 5 star More


Lovely, be back again!

Stayed here a few years ago and was truely lovely, I had a very plesent stay with my parents and always vowed I would return. After being again during the summer I didnt want to leave. Lovely place with few faults in my eyes, everything inclusive always a fantastic choice of food throughout the day. The pools were great and the location was just stunning. Wouldnt think of staying anywhere else.More

Excellent holiday

Being a late arrival it was nice to get booked into the Hotel so smooth and quick, there was food laid on and the waiters made you feel welcome. The hotel is very clean and the gardens are well kept. The hotel staff couldn`t do enough they made our stay very enjoyable. The food was good and had plenty of choice morning, lunch and evening dinner. We had no problem getting sunbeds around the pool but it did get busy by 10.00 o`clock. our room was large and very clean but the only problem there was no draws in the room so we had to keep some clothes in our suitcase. It was nice to have a 24hr bar where all the staff were brilliant we also had a minibar in our room with water, beer and soft drinks. the evening entertainment was repetitive live band and duo in the lobby bar played the same songs twice in one week. The Animation team, we didn`t really see them for the first three days which was different to the Riu in Djerba we stayed in June where they engaged with all the guests. But over all we did have an excellent time just relaxing and chilling out. So thanks to the Management and all the staff for making our holiday brilliant.More

Not 5 star! Please read...

Room: We visited here in early September 2014, when we arrived check in was pretty quick, our bags were taken from us and we were greeted with a nice cocktail. We were surprised to be upgraded to a garden room as we were told the hotel was at full capacity, when we arrived at our room we were hugely disappointed! The décor and space was lovely but the room was very damp! Plaster was cracked and powdery, big water stains were on the ceiling, the bed sheets were damp and the smell of damp was unbearable! We contacted reception to inform them of the state of the room and we were quickly fobbed off and told nothing can be done until the morning then had the phone put down on us! We tried again and were told that someone would contact us in the next half hour or so, an hour and half passed still no phone call.......... We decided we would walk to reception and see if that made a difference, fortunately it did and we were given a new room which was much better. By this time it was 1:30am, we were expecting our suitcases to be with us shortly but unfortunately they did not arrive until 3:30am! The rooms are nice but if you are a light sleeper you will not appreciate this hotel, the walls are paper thin so you can hear everything! The hotel would definitely benefit from an adult only section! Food & Drink: Food was great! Plenty of choice, personally we would advise not to book the restaurants as in all honesty the food is much better and plentiful in the main dining area. The food was a god send and defiantly helped us get through our week! There was plenty of selection if you fancy a tipple! they stocked most home brands and cocktails were good! Pool: Pool was OK, we were a little put off due to lack of restrictions, such as, smoking areas, rubbish and it would have been nice to have an adult section. One of the days the pool was emptied and cleaned all day! Not a good decision as there is no other pool to retreat to. Its the usual pool situation with regards to towels on beds, this wasn't really an issue for us as this tends to be the normal everywhere. There was no waiter service around the pool which was disappointing for a 5 star! Weather: Not what we expected! First 2 days it was overcast, drizzly and chilly! We were informed that the sea mist is there most mornings and often lingers all day, we were really disappointed as this was not pointed out by our travel rep, we were told it would be mid to late 20's and sunny! If you want guaranteed sun this may not be the hol for you! Beach/Agadir: The beach was not good! The amount of rubbish and cigarette buts was unbelievable, we were told that Agadir was famous for its beach! The hotel had an allocated section which was basically a handful of loungers sectioned off with a rope, not impressive especially if you bare in mind that the beach is shared with locals. Agadir itself is very poor, dirty and smelly, we have been to similar countries but Agadir seems to still be a bit behind. The locals are not really friendly and if you are a little shy you may not appreciate all the looks/comments from the locals, especially women. All in all we would not go back, we were sold the holiday as the next best thing to Egypt but it was far from it! I don't think Agadir is a great tourist area if you are looking for really good service, tourist attractions or nice beach/sea. If you are looking for a real basic Moroccan experience that's not luxury than this is for you! The hotel was nice probably the best looking at others that were there!More
