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.

Good four star experience
Stayed here for a week at the end of April 2015, celebrating my partner's birthday. Chose the Monday flights out of Manchester Qand everything was on time, flight experience was good and airport transfers very efficient with Thomson. Check in at the hotel was swift, with attentive porters and we were presented with a little cocktail to enjoy whilst we waited to be seen to. I had booked a room with a pool view and was disappointed to be given a first floor room with a view completely obscured by trees. I mentioned to the Thomson rep who swiftly arranged for us to be moved to the other side of the hotel on a higher floor with a superb view of the pool and sea. Whilst this was further from reception/bars/restaurant, it was worth it for the views. The room was great and very much as we expected from the images/reviews seen and it was cleaned to a good standard every day. Minor criticism in the bathroom, was that the shower over the bath was cramped and dark and maybe walk in showers to replace baths during the forthcoming refurbishment would be a better idea. The food was excellent and the choice wide and varied and we found it was difficult to make a decision, such was the variety available. The staff were very helpful and attentive in the restaurant, although sometimes a bit over zealous as our plates were whipped away as soon as the cutlery touched the plate on a few occasions! One major criticism of the restaurant was the seating arrangement, which resembled school dinners during breakfast, lunch and dinner servings. If you waited on staff to find you a table, they would try and place you next to strangers on a table with a four in gap between them and sometimes in the middle table with two four inch gaps either side of you. This, in my opinion, loses this hotel at least one star from it's five star rating as no bone fide five star hotel would even consider this type of dining arrangement. We quickly became wise to this policy and used the side entrance and selected our own table towards the back of the restaurant. Also on catering, there were times of the day, (between five and seven pm) where no food/snacks were available in the hotel for all inclusive customers and this was also disappointing compared to other five star all inclusive hotels, especially for those with children who prefer to eat earlier. If you are looking for a holiday where you can enjoy a "lie in" of a morning, then think twice about booking. This is a horrible "up at 7am to claim a sun lounger" establishment and all the best spots around the pool were long gone by 10am. This was despite signs around the pool saying sun loungers were not to be reserved. The hotel has a private section of the beach with less comfortable sun loungers and no bar service, hence the reason practically nobody used it whilst we were there. Overall, we had a very good time and I still believe that Riu hotels are among the best when it comes to service provision although for the reasons mentioned above this hotel is definitely four star at best.

After reading lots of reviews about this hotel there is not much more to say that has not already been said, it is well set out, all staff have guests at the top of there list, this not only helps to make this hotel more relaxing , it helped us to enjoy our holiday even more than normal. I have read a review about the dining room seating arrangements, this was not true in our experience, we found by waiting to be seated we could indicated to the waitress an area in which we would like to be seated. Food varied and well cooked, bar service first class, entertainment was normal standard for Rui hotels. We never had a problem finding a decent spot near or around the pool area, in fact the sofa's in all of the outdoor areas were very comfy and plentiful. The less mobile can move around this hotel easy enough with lifts servicing all areas, a bonus as well was the level promenade stretching 3 or 4 miles in total either side of the hotel, marina one way and walk to one of the Kings residence the other. Overall this was one of the best hotels we have been fortunate enough to spend time at lovely indeed.More

Great hotel, wonderful holiday!
Just back from a week long holiday at the Riu Palace Tikada in Agadir and had the most amazing time! Staff - So helpful, friendly and welcoming towards their guests Facilities - The room, swimming pools, restaurants and bar areas all of a very high standard. Free Wifi in lobby and around pool area Food & Drink - Slightly repetitive menu but good quality and definitely recommend making reservations for the a la carte restaurants. Branded spirits and good cocktail menu. Weather - 5 of the 7 days spent in glorious sunshine, especially mid - late afternoon Value for money - Excellent I would have no hesitation recommending Agadir and the Riu Palace to all.More
This is an amazing hotel - the pool and eating areas are great. The lounge on an evening is fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel. It's so clean and well kept. Lovely.. I came with a friend and she wanted to do a few trips and I wanted to lounge by the pool. The whole holiday worked for both of us. The food variety is great and suited us both and the bar staff were great. We definitely got carried awY on the gin and Mojitos. Great holiday. More
Just returned from the Tikida Palace and can't wait to return. Everything about this hotel is five star. Wonderful attentive staff, excellent food, pool service and rooms. Situated right on the promenade so you can walk off that lunch. I will be returning for some TLC soon.More
