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.
It's here that you'll have the choice of eating in the main restaurant or al fresco on the terrace. There’s a mix of local specialities and international favourites, so you’ll find everything from chicken tagine and couscous to pasta dishes on offer, along with live cooking stations.
Spacious and stylish - your junior suite comes with a sea view and either a balcony or terrace, offering that extra space outside. Your suite will include a lounge, TV, air-conditioning, and an extra child's bed that means you can sleep up to 3. Just so you know you'll have 2 separate bathrooms too.
We had a great time with the family. Nice hotel. Great location close to city center. And right by the beach. Great for afternoon walks. Pool is awesome. There is a bar in it. Spend few days there. Did feel the time pass by.More
I really enjoyed my stay here. Fantastic. Value for money. Excellent food and service. Beautiful rooms. Convenient and reliable transfers to all golf courses. All inclusive drinks were good. The spa was relaxing or though more expensive than would have expected. Pool area very relaxing. Close to beach and walks along promenade. Highly recommended. More
Nightmare of a Holiday !
Our holiday which was turning out to be fine was ruined by the RIF RAFFS they allowed to stay in the hotel. The hotel would have been rated a 10/10 but our safety was not considered and for that the ratings are 0.
A number of people complained about a group of lads who where preying on girls at the pool area. These lads preyed upon female member of staff on the animation team and Resturant waitress. Which in my opinion is DISGUSTING and perverted ! These groups of men all in their early (30's ) and old man were allowed to stay in the hotel even though they where warned before their vacation by the pilot, hotel and Thomson rep ( collet , Dan ) and manager (Alberto) for their foul behaviour of spitting on the hotel grounds and appalling behaviour around the pool walking around with duty free alcohol.
other guest including ourselves were on edge and intimidated by they loud flamboyant behaviour around the grounds. We was told by the Thomson rep collet who was drunk on site ( unprofessional ) mentioned to us that these men were going to be kicked out. She mentioned that they where rude to her also and video recorded her without her consent. They had slapped girls bottoms and grabbed girls wrist and so forth. For a 5* hotel RIU shouldn't have allowed such behaviour to take place. The boys walked around as if they owned the place buying the security guards mc Donald's and bringing back escorts paying off people workers to do things.
:About the hotel:
On a arrival your given complementary non-alcoholic drinks which I must admit is tasty. Your then given your key which know one escorts you to your door so you will have to find this yourself. However, you don't have to bring your belongings has the porter brings this for you ( but wants a tip for doing so )
The hotel from the outside is well maintained cannot fault that. The rooms are quite dime not enough adequate lighting for me but spacious. Our light bulb blew and was without light for three days in the bathroom although we mentioned this to the reception on more than one occasion along with the broken light switch and blocked sink. ( see photos attached )
We was told the hotel was an adults only hotel from the reviews/Agent !! Other guest mentioned this to us also in speaking they mentioned about premium drinks which was also advertised on the Thomson site which wasn't at the pool area or dinning area. We was told by other guests that you are able to get this at the lobby bar after 7oclock on a first come first serve basis unless you're a tipper or regular and thats including champagne/presco even though we've paid for all inclusive!!! I mentioned this to the manager ( Alberto ) that this is absurd and shocking that guest are given false information and premium drinks are finished within an hour or two.
Majority of the staff are pleasant & helpful they help you out when they can. It's the same for the pool area very genuine and friendly. The Animation team are nice, friendly, bubbly and enthusiastic always helping when they can.
The dinner hall experience wasn't that good since I stopped tipping after the second day. We was made to get our drinks for breakfast and evening if we did ask we where more or less waiting a long time.
The manager ( Alberto ) lacked common basic managing skills. He Doesn't know how to deal with members of the public especially when it comes to the dress code in the Resturant. He went to a couple and embarrassed the gentlemen for wearing shorts. An old couple and others asked him to be quite a few times as he was making us feel uncomfortable.
overall my experience would of had been better if we felt safe around the hotel but we wasn't and its shame as the boys let the hotel down.More

Usual fabulous RIu hotel especially being new at the time .
Fabulous service, pool, food and accommodation.
No noisy entertainment at night which was good, nice piano etc.
Agadir itself is not very nice and a bit intimidating as my party was nearly all female with young teenage girls and was harrassed by local young men constantly
Whilst walking and shopping but i am told is always the same in muslim countries.
Only downside was checkout my friend and i had to pay for another room to change etc due to very late flight.More
