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.
Stayed for a week in Sept 2014. Hotel was very nice and due to mix up over rooms we got upgraded to a suite on 2nd day.
Very good food and service although the swim up pool bar often ran out of beer and had to take a 50 yard walk to the other bar.
The massage and spa centre within the hotel is very good, had a mud wrap and massage and this was good.
Would recommend this hotel for a relaxing timeMore

At hotel now. On our fifth day out of seven. Food is good as is hotel. Had a bit of a problem when given a room above club on first night but complained and was moved. They then gave us a room with a sea view and a fruit bowl. We had a letter of apology and a small gift. Check weather before you come it's on coast so can be fight and cloudy but not cold. Can't change weather. Not really a place to go out on nights. Can't comment on hotel entertainment didn't see any. It's nice and quiet and a good place to relax. Compared to Turkey and Egypt it's not as busy. Lots of French people here so manners are better than the Germans or Russians. Would recommend it to others. More
Nice staff, average weather, poor resort
We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks from the end of August into September.
Hotel room was good, always cleaned well, spacious, no complaints at all with the room. Bar staff and waiters outside were always very polite and helpful. Lovely lady working in the bar, always greeted us with a smile and remembered our drinks order throughout the holiday.
Entertainment was very poor in the hotel which is disappointing as there is not really anywhere nice to go in the resort of Agadir, in fact we never left the hotel in the evening as the resort is unpleasant (this is unlike us!!). Singer couldn't sing or remember the words, two things i think are essential for a career as a singer. Each evening they also had a specific entertainer e.g. belly dancer, magician etc these were on for about 20 mins if that and nothing to shout about.
Food in the hotel was nice with a relatively large selection. However had an upset stomach for 4-5 days which obviously put a downer in the holiday, when talking to other hotel guests there were quite a few cases of the same problem.
The hotel is right on the beach which is nice, beach is always busy and full of locals which we thought was nice and there are always sunbeds free on the beach. We always found a sunbed around the pool without getting up at the crack of dawn. The sun beds could do with updating and cleaning.
The weather in aug/ september is abit unpredicatable and within 2 weeks we only had one day of wall to wall sunshine. The first week was very cloudy/ misty with intermittent sunny periods, although the weather improved in our second week. So if you want a sunshine holiday don't go to Agadir within this time.
Excursions: we did the camel trekking, which was fun as had never been on a camel however it is a 2 hour ride through wasteland which is not scenic in the slightest which was a disappointment.
Marrakech 1 day trip : was good day out, very long 6.30 am until midnight with a just over 3 hour coach trip each way. Worth it though as Marrakech is very interesting place and Souk is much much better than agadir souk. You get lunch and dinner with this the lunch is very long and we felt that the tour should of had more free time as you only get about an hour in the afternoon.
4x4 Atlas mountain trip: enjoyed this very much, great views and stop to have breakfast in a Berba village, good to see traditional side to Morocco.
Overall the hotel was good although could do with abit of work and not sure I would recommend it to family or friends. Although saying this we got a very good deal for 2 weeks all inclusive so we were happy with the 2 weeks here. Agadir as a resort isn't great, most of our time was spent in the hotel which again is no like us at all, but if looking for a chill out holiday then this is for you.More

NEVER GOING BACK!!!!
We got to Agadir on August 14th. The weather in the was horrible. It was cloudy and foggy and quiet chilly in the morning and evening. By the 16th the weather perked up! However, the maid stole £270 from our hotel room, which was in a locked suitcase (key and padlock). We couldnt use the safe because it was broken!!! The hotel staff did nothing about it. Also, there was an ants infestation in our room. The maid also stole my ibuprofen tablets which i had taken to use for my migraines. So i was left with a migraine!!! she stole all 3 boxes of tablets! Food was horrific! not much choice. Breakfast was good and the daily pancakes were awesome! Pool and Entertainment was great but, I wouldn't recommend and wouldn't go again!!!!!
Also, the beach was packed with locals as it was summer holidays so there was no space!!!More
