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.

Palace is a good description.
Wanted a winter break and found this Gem. Reviews on Trip Advisor were great so we booked it with Thomson. Wow, what a hotel! Some people may find the hotel too large, but no way does it detract from the quality of the rooms and service. The staff were not only extremely polite and friendly, they were genuinely wanting to please. It very much seemed that they were proud to work in the hotel and that the hotel was proud of them working for it. What a refreshing attitude of people to be found these days. All entertainment was carried out by their own team. They seemed to be involved in everything and within a few days you recognized them around the complex and soon were joining in with their banter. If we had stayed longer it may have become a little repetitive though. Resort and the town were great to explore. We did a couple of tours but these were with Thomson. Food at the hotel was above average for a fully inclusive hotel. Plenty to choose from and freshly cooked. Four restaurants all together (in summer months it is five). We did book and eat in the Krystal (fusion) and the Moroccan restaurants. Not a lot of choice on menu but food was good. We had booked a pool view room so that we were looking into the hotel grounds. The room was big and indeed had the wow factor. The standard of finish was indeed superior to what holiday hotels normally give. The hotel is right on the lovely clean beach. there is a clean promenade to walk along and plenty to see. All I want to say really is - book it, go there and ENJOY. "Hey, its really good!"More

A Real Palace
This is my first stay at a Riu but i will be looking out for the brand when booking future holidays. The first thing that grabbed my attention excluding the vast marble lobby area with comfy sofas to Skype friends and family back home was the level of customer service. The staff are amazing and willing to help in any way they can. The bars (fully stocked with brand names) are overstaffed leading to quick and friendly service. Reception staff have a local knowledge on par with google search. The entertainment: A water aerobics session in the pool ever morning if you are up for it. Apart from that they are very much out of your way - if you want to get involved with the various activities (from yoga to ballroom dance) you can. No constant hassle or irritation of staff trying to convince you to start star jumping. The evening has a lounge singer together with grand piano and is actually very good. Alternatively there is a show every evening which is well thought out and executed. The room: We went with a junior suite and WOW!, consisting of 5 rooms including separate WC and Shower/bath room with twin sinks. Queenside bed (be aware very firm mattress), 2 piece suite, table and chairs. Walk-in wardrobe. Balcony... big enough for 2 sun beds and a table and chairs. Very high standard of finish throughout. Hotel Location: Positioned on the promenade 10 seconds from the beach which is a beautiful 1.5 mile stretch. Across the road at the front of the hotel you have a number of souvenir shops (haggle required). Good set up for those looking to relax - explorers this is not for you. OK no for the important bit...FOOD - I am a big foodie so am probably being more critical then most but the only flaw i could find was the chicken was overcooked. Everything else is very good. Must try the desserts - very very good. Choice of 3 restaurants, 1 buffet style with a vast selection and excellent service. 2 specialist restaurants requiring reservations (I didn't try). Overall i really can't recommend this hotel enough mainly due to the staff. Everything else was excellent but the staff's friendly, helpful and incredibly attentive makes it. 5 Stars truly deserved!More

Lovely as ever!
Another lovely holiday at the Riu Palace at the beginning of December. The holiday was to celebrate my birthday and the staff made it very special. A message under the door in the morning, a flower strewn table, champagne and a beautiful cake left in our room on returning from dinner. As I had not mentioned it was my birthday it was a lovely surprise. So very relaxing and friendly. The staff go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday. Everything is included and there are no hidden extras. Rooms are all spacious and very clean. Chilly morning and evening in December but warm enough to swim and sunbathe during the day. Felt quite safe wandering around Agadir. Good for shopping especially for made to measure leather jackets. The hotel is lovely and in a good location but it is the staff that make it the excellent hotel that it is.More

2nd visit, twice as good!
The only hotel we have returned to and not been disappointed. Tikada Palace so deserves its 5 stars, the whole holiday experience is excellent from start to finish. The hotel is exceptionally clean, the staff can't do enough for you, the food is excellent and the rooms are of a very high standard. We will be back for visit number 3, 4, 5....More
Had never been to either Morocco or a Riu Hotel and now I'm hooked. It was the best time ever and the hotel was heaven on earth. I went with another 8 people, all ages from 6 years to 70 + and we all said w'd go back tomorrow given half the chance. Everything was exactly as they show on the internet and all previous trip advisor comments were as told. Nothing is exaggerated. Staff were friendly, polite and courteous and all our rooms were spotlessly clean. We were all so impressed including some of our crowd who had stayed in Riu hotels before. My only one little whinge is that I did slip in the bath when having a shower one day so would recommend a slip mat or those little non-slip pads you can leave in the bath other than that it was lovely. Choice of food, cocktails, branded alcohol was second to none and also the little extras of a stocked mini-bar (all inclusive) and a free safe, add up to what turned out to be a perfect holiday. Shame about the weather but hey it was a lovely break and it was still a lot warmer than Blighty. Am looking forward to going back a.s.a.p.More
