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.

Wonderful hotel!

After 15 years of travel it was wonderful to be introduced to the hotel management team on our arrival meeting at this hotel. The staff were were very helpful and sorted everything out quickly. The facilities were excellent and it was humbling to see that the manager was in the restaurant to oversee that things were going well and lending a helping hand. As we are all aware management rarely make any appearance whatsoever! The food was excellent and chef was happy to accommodate any dietary requirements etc. Agadir was lovely and we walked out every evening and very safe too. All in all an enjoyable holiday.

Myself and my family have just returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel. After reading various reviews of the hotel we had an open mind when we arrived. We flew independently so arrived by taxi early morning. Well firstly my four year old got trapped in revolving doors resulting in screams and crys whilst the reception staff looked on and did nothing to help. The reception staff were unhelpful and there service poor, female staff ignored my husband stating they thought he'd prefer to deal with the male staff. I thought that rather strange as we wanted to check in after a long journey. We had a delux suite overlooking the beach. The room was huge and lovely however we felt let down as the balcony was never moped and bird poo, dead ants were everywhere needless to say we never used it. Our room floor I doubt saw the mop either as following a shower your feet were dirty. Half way through the holiday there was a day where the water didn't work and came out brown, eek 4 calls to reception finally sorted this with no explanation of why it had happened. 3 calls to reception to remove cockroaches was needed too yuk. The food, yes the buffet looks greAt and yes a wide selection was on offer however I don't think I ate a hot meal and many guests had upset stomaches. Unfortunately I witnessed many top ups of food including rice, this is basic food hygiene and apparent 4 star hotel should do better. The evening entertainment was well rubbish. Singers who can't sing and dancers that well need to learn there rountines a little better. The pool all sun beds are taken with towels and believe it when people say the sun rarely shows itself, and when it does only then are the sun beds used. The beds are tired and dirty. They are never washed and you'll find bird poo and food on the furniture. Many of the umbrellas and stands are broken but still in use. The delux sun beds are well disgusting. They are fifthy and we did not attempt to use them at all ( afraid what was living on it) The staff, many are lovely, kind and professional however many are not and the theme of guests being favored over others is true. Some staff saved the best sun beds for guests including rose petals on towels. The reception staff again are poor and very unhelpful and I actually complained to the manager regarding two individuals. The hotel itself is very tired and in desperate need of a refurb. But areas I would consider unsave beside the steps for the shallow end of the pool is an exposed electrical box no attempt to fix it happened whilst we were there and of course some other things broken toilet doors by pool, no toilet roll in the ladies on the afternoon. Cockroaches in the Loos too and not forgetting the broken toilet handles so flushing wasn't always eAsy. I could actually keep going and going. The 4 star tag is an overstatement and I would say a 3 at best so if your looking to book at the prices they charge. id look else where. More

Lovely hotel

This hotel and facilities are lovely! The food is fabulous, the staff are very good and most people work really hard to ensure you have a great holiday. The hotel is very French and Moroccan orientated but the staff treat the English well and try to include everyone in the activities. The beach is beautiful but the sea is very rugged, in saying that there is a large lifeguard presence. The animation team work so well and such long hours(big shout out to Mousse and Aziz who were fun and friendly) our Thompson rep Leanne was helpful and honest helping to organise trips also nice touch with a birthday card for my husband on arrival. The organised camel trek was great fun for all as was the Agadir experience. The only negatives were the sellers on the promenade who did leave you alone when you said no but there was just so many of them. The other downside was the men staringand being suggestive my young daughters but it's manageable. There is a nightclub at the front of the hotel but we emailed prior to arriving and had a lovely room at the back of the hotel. Breakfast is the only meal that we had an issue with as if you went down after 9am the staff were trying to clear up round and the service wasn't great but we worked round this by going to the snack bar at 10 for a continental breakfast. All in all a great holiday and lovely hotel. The only other thing is the weather don't be surprised by cloudy mornings! Most of the time it brightens up.More



My daughter, friend and I have just returned from a great week at the Riu Tikida Beach hotel. Having read a mixed bag of reviews prior to our holiday we arrived with an open mind. I also emailed Mustapha (Reception) prior to our holiday to request a quiet room. He kindly responded swiftly saying there were no guarantees but that he would do his best. The check-in on our arrival was extremely efficient (thank you Afaf) and we were duly rewarded with a quiet room on the third floor at the side of the hotel (333). The room was large and comfortable, with a view of the sea. It was kept immaculately clean. The hotel is a bit tired, however, I gather it is due to be partially refurbished towards the end of the year. The food at this hotel is excellent - fresh fish, pasta, pizzas, local cuisine, and all served with bottles of wine. Full marks to the head chef and his team - both in the kitchen and serving. This hotel is due to be an 'Adult Only' hotel later in the year and it will definitely benefit from the change. The staff at this hotel were SUPERB - polite, kind, attentive and efficient. Thank youMore
