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.

Enjoyable and worth the money

We stayed at Riu Tikida Palace on the 13th June for ten days with Thomson. The price of the holiday was a bargain! I've never stayed at a Riu hotel before have always heard mixed reviews... Before this we got stung by Thomson, they weigh your hand luggage never has this before we were both 10kg had to pay £150!!! Nothing was mentioned any where when booking. Limit is 20kg suitcase & 5kg for 1 piece of hand luggage &£15 for every kg that your over. . Going to sub section each things Rooms.... beds are twin room for those un sure it is two single beds. The room is big and spacious, it comes with a safe no charge. Views was of the pool close to the beach. Few things which the hotel is aware of, being a 5* star all inclusive hotel you don't get an iron or ironing bored. We rung the front desk three times in 90 minutes asking for one to only be told reason no one brought one to us was they didnt have one free. So bring your own one! Luckily we asked our maid she had one in thier cupboard, but make sure you take one. No complimentary slippers or bathrobes are provided, if you like these things again bring your own. The hair dryer power is very weak again bring your own. The bed is comfy so are the pillows, TV most channels are in french but who comes on holiday to watch tv. Pool & sunbeds... a british thing by 8am most beds are taken! Key is 6.00am to get your place best place to sit if facing the beach keep to the left by the pool with the bar and the pool behind. They have water aerobics on at 12 which is enjoyable. Food  There are two restaurants you can book; make sure you book soon as you arrive. We arrived on a monday krystal restaurant wasnt free till friday. Book early to avoid disappointment. Buffet is on for all three meals, ladies take notes for your men they need trousers for dinner although its buffet food men still need to wear them no shorts or tailored shorts. No vest tops are allowed to be worn at breakfast or dinner. There is a variety of food which is nice. Wished you did do room service! One night just wanted to chill the thought getting ready ag! Krystal restaurant is amazing! Food & the service are on point! Steak is a must. Morrocan resturant - again have to book in advance. Food & service wa great, would say those who are fussy eaters may want to look at the menu first. Things to do. For us this holiday was to do nothing, we did go to the market one day, your rep will tell you what yoy need to know, its not like turkey were you get harassed but polity say no thank you, you may get called tight but dont react to it. Make sure if a local who speaks english really chatty wants to show you around mentions luton to you & asks you what you are after again say no thank you, yes he was helpful but wanted 600dh for his time when he walked you to your cab. There is a selection of activities in the hotel, gym not that great but has the necessities, volleyball, bingo, water aerobics, darts, ping pong, football dont worry the men won't get bored. Wifi... there is none in the room, limited by the pool but main reception area and dinner they have wifi. It was such a shame how many couples were on there phone during our stay, enjoy your partners company and your holiday.   Overall a really lovely stay and staff were lovely, we are leaving just as it is getting busier now so towels may need to go down for 5.30. We would certainly recommend this hotel as it was to us from friends. Overall 3.5 out of 5. X More

Corinna L,

Overall, an excellent hotel

This hotel is very large and modern with a lot of guests. The hotel mostly had a relaxed atmosphere to it. There were a lot of areas to sit around in the huge lobby with comfy couches to sit and have a drink. I was most surprised that all drinks were also free in the all inclusive deal. Whatever you wanted, you could order it, bottles of coke, wine, beer, cocktails, morrocon tea etc. Even in the rooms there were drinks in the minibar which were free including cans of coke, sprite, fanta and water. The rooms were fairly big, some have a lounge area, with flat screen tv etc, and the beds were generally comfy. The only problem with my room was that I was located right near the lift and overlooking the outdoor bar area, which sometimes got very noisy, with some drunk guests (free alcohol after all). Although, considering there was unlimited alcohol, most guests were chilled and sensible. There was a lot of young couples when I visited in June. My room was also behind a car park, so was a bit noisy. Perhaps pay a bit extra for a sea view room. Overall the food was very good considering it is an all inclusive hotel, and there was a large variety of options to choose from. A lot of food items are freshly made such as the meat etc. They offered chicken, veal, turkey, beef, fish etc. But also had pasta, pizza, burgers, salad, rice etc. Overall, we ate a lot of food on this holiday, be prepared! The staff were very friendly and the service was very good. When you finished your food, the waiters would take your plates as soon as you finished, and they would offer you more drinks etc. There are 2 swimming pools, 1 outdoor and 1 indoor. I only swam in the indoor pool as there was not many people in there, so was nice and relaxing, but the outdoor pool also looks nice. One problem outside was that it was hard to find deck chairs for sunbathing. I assume people get there early in the morning to reserve them. One thing that this hotel should improve on is the security of the hotel. Upon entering the hotel from the beach back exit, the security guy was just talking, and not looking at who was entering the hotel. Also, at the front entrance, I didn't think the security was strict enough, I would prefer them to check bags etc, to be on the safe side. In agadir, there is not much to do. The place is pretty dead, and we spent most of the time just in the hotel apart from a few activities we found to do. We drove scooters on the beach promenade, we went quad biking and we went Jet skiing. There are no leaflets in the hotel about what to do in the area, we just had to walk along the beach to find people that were offering these actives. Thomson are very cheeky, they are only advertising the activity packages they offer which are very expensive, all of which were of no interest to us, such as crocodile park. We went to the local souk, but it is nothing like the souks in Marrakech. Go to Marrakech if you want the full on Morocco experience which is very exciting with a lot going on! Agadir is just a beach kind of holiday where you can relax and you'll probably spend most of the time in Hotel Riu, as the all inclusive makes you stay for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have an evening entertainment. Some nights were good, other nights were not so good. One thing I didn't like was that there was No Wifi in the rooms! This hotel should install it, it would greatly improve guests satisfaction as I heard a number of people complain. There was however wifi in the lobby area and by the pool. Also, for some reason watsapp calls do not work in this hotel! Try FaceTime audio instead, as this worked for us. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this 5 star resort, and considering it is only 3.5 hrs from London, this is a good luxury break for the great price we paid for it. I can understand why people would go back to this hotel.More


Amazing hotel

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it is absolutely amazing! We got a lovely welcome fruit basket and sparking wine on arrival! The hotel itself is clean and very modern! They work hard al the time on the property upkeep! The staff are very helpful and friendly. Always plenty of sinners but if you want the big special ones you need to be an early bird in the morning to save one! More

Vonnie F,

The Macs on tour

Cannot fault this hotel or it's staff. Everyone is very friendly and cannot do enough for you. Food at all meal times is of an excellent standard. The grounds around the pool areas are well maintained and the private beach is staffed at all times.More
