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.

Fantastic stay, wonderful staff, exquisite food.
Visited for a rest and relaxation holiday. Got exactly that, even at the end of January it was warm enough and the pool was great. Our room was lovely bathroom was a good size for a family of 3, with a nice balcony for us to enjoy the evening. Disappointed that you were not allowed alcohol back in the room, as we had a 3 year old we could not stay out to enjoy the evening in the bar. Good size beds too however they were a little hard, this is the only negative thing about our stay. Breakfasts were spot, the choice was fantastic the same for lunch and dinners. It was great to try the different local foods on offer. Entertainment throught the day was brilliant with different clubs and events to keep you busy if you wanted to. All the staff were brilliant. My wife needed to get an inhaler as hers had got lost and the staff were only to happy to go out to a late night pharmacy and get her another one. Brilliant place to rest and unwind More

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we could not find fault with this hotel. We had a junior suite which was lovely very spacious. Mini bar stocked daily with beer, water and soft drinks. Tea & coffee provided. The food is excellent. The crystal restaurant is very good with such good service. Moroccan restaurant just as good and the buffet is probably one ohf the nicest buffets we have come across on our travels. They had everything you could want - fresh fish cooked while u wait, lovely roast meats the pork was so tender, vegetables were varied. If sweet is not your thing there was a good selection of cheese. Breakfast buffet excellent. We had no trouble sitting around the pool, the attendants at the pool would find beds for you and place them wherever you wanted. Entertainment adequate. Lovely atmosphere in main bar area. Great promenade to stroll along - flat with lots of places to sit. We did the tour of Agadir half day well worth it. The staff at this hotel are very well trained nothing was to much trouble. We hope to return. More
Just returned from an amazing holiday with my boyfriend. When we arrived at the hotel we were blown away by the luxurious detail, grand lobby area, friendly and welcoming staff (with a cocktail on arrival awaiting checkin). The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much for them - and no, they do not expect tips! The room was out of this world, large balcony, seating area, massive bed (two together), bathroom area massive and clean. Fridge refilled daily (soft drinks). Only downside would be the Beds - separate and make a lot of noise when you are 'together'. Food is out of this world - recommend the Moroccan Theme restaurant. We tried both but this was our favourite. Even in buffet food areas, the food was great. No complaints at all! There is NOTHING to Fault about this hotel, the staff, the food or location If I was being picky, WIFI needed all over (only in lobby, parts of pool area near bars, and dinning areas). Looks like everyone is unsociable but that's the only time they can get in wifi :) Amazing relaxing hotel. Evening entertainment is on for approx 2 hours - after that you fend for yourselves. We are younger (early 30s) and found we were amongst the youngest there. From 11pm the hotel is VERY QUIET. it was just us and another young couple awake and drinking. Weather in February (first week of month) was like UK July weather (hot but just right) evenings colder if going in February take some warm clothes for evening (light jacket). Recommend Altas Mountains Tour (4x4 ride), Marrakesh Day and Quad biking (we booked on beach 350 dirhams each) If we ever go to Morocco again, we will go here! Nothing else could compete. More
Fifty shades of brown......
Some reviewers have commented on how drab and gloomy this hotel is. Yes, it is very brown but the furnishings and fittings are all high quality. It has a luxurious feel with lots of reflective surfaces and many lovely sitting areas featuring interesting object d'art. The overall atmosphere is relaxing and the drink measures are lethal! The service is top notch. We asked for a wifi cable for the room and we were given one immediately but it was only suitable for a lap top. We didn't like the restaurant seating very much. There are very few tables for two so you could find yourselves sitting next to strangers - or it could be said new friends! Tried the Krystal restaurant but it must have been chef's night off. Quick tip...Our bath took an age to fill until another guest told us to put the shower setting to just beyond the 'on' setting as well as the bath tap and that did the trick. Toiletries do not include bubble bath, shampoo or conditioner. There was ,instead, a dispenser on the wall by the bath tub which I felt let the luxury element down a little. The bathroom had double sinks and a soft close loo lid which we felt was good attention to detail. The wardrobe could have done with a couple more hangers but that's just nit-picking. The clientele was international with lots of elegant French and Italians and a smattering of other nationalities, including British. Talking of the British, I think that it would be nice if management extended the no shorts rule to ladies as well as men and introduced a baseball cap ban for evening dining . It's bad form. There weren't many children about and I would say that it is a good place if you are taking the children for a break but if you are looking for an all out child focused holiday it may not suit, Outside the hotel, watch the pricing. One shopkeeper across the road from the hotel tried to charge us 25 dirham each for 9 dirham stamps and some of the taxi drivers try it on a bit too. We were there the first week of February, The mornings and evenings were decidedly nippy and I was pleased that I had taken sweaters and cardis as it was even chilly in the dining room sometimes. All in all, this hotel is great and we would have liked to stay longer.More
Our eighth stay and still amazing
Just returned from another holiday at this wonderful hotel. We think it is amazing and we love everything about it. The service we receive from all the staff in the hotel is exceptional. The waiters in the restaurants and in the bars are friendly and make sure you are so well looked after on every day of your stay. The range and quality of food continues to amaze us. We love visiting the themed restaurants like the Krystal and the Marrakech where again the standard of food and quality of service are as high as ever. The staff on Reception are friendly and welcoming on arrival. They are always there to help and do an amazing job. The hotel is always meticulously clean and the cleaners work so hard and are also pleasant when you pass them in the corridor.We could not recommend this hotel highly enough. We cannot wait to go back and are already planning our next visit.More
