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.

First family holiday

Wow, not knowing what to expect of Morocco, Agadir or the Riu chain, how pleased can one family be. This was our first holiday as a new family, the staff were fantastic, so helpful, caring and considerate. They loved our little one (11 months), taking time to say hello and help entertain him when he had a whinge. The food was a great collection of Mediterranean, Moroccan, and home style foods. My family were very happy with this and the selection of accompanying drinks far surpassed my expectations (included champers) The setting was beautiful and the local people ( even the lookie lookie men ) were happy and polite. We got some good advice from a couple of them. The beach looked wonderful but shamefully we didn't step foot on it, needed some reasons to go back. We would definitely recommend this as a great alternative to the usual med holiday, and less than a 4 hour flight, so worthwhile.More

Chris E,

Lovely hotel ...... weather not so great

Just back from a 11 day holiday at the Riu Tikida Palace, and had a lovely time. In summary, the hotel was great: great location next to the beach, food was good, bedrooms big and clean and staff friendly and helpful. Staff - lovely. Always there to help, and always with a smile. When you ask for something, it was there straight away. Rooms: spacious Lovely rooms, spacious and clean. Try and get an 'even' numbered room so that you are facing the pool and not one of the service roads on either side of the hotel. Can also get noisy with children running up an down the corridors. Food - good, but samey. In the main restaurant always plenty to choose from and always of a good quality, but it did get a bit a samey after you've eaten in there a few times - would definitely recommend eating at the other restaurants on site (Krystal: 'fusion' food; Marrakech: Moroccan cuisine; Italian) to get a variety, or even walk into the local area and try a local restaurant - would whole-heartedly recommend the "Jardin d'eau" Location: Good - right next to the beach Easy and safe access to a great, sandy beach with shallow warm sea - great to either paddle in or delve deeper. Was very busy during our stay and at times, my wife and daughters felt a little 'uncomfortable' with the high male ratio on the beach. Pool: Nice, but could be bigger and warmer. Nice pool but a bit chilly, especially when the weather wasn't good (see below). Plenty of sunbeds - only the ones right next to the pool are snatched up early. But BEWARE .... we had a shirt and a sarong 'stolen' from our beds in our absence over two separate instances - gave us a sour test in our mouths and made us less likely to leave things unattended. Weather: Variable..... We went to Agadir expecting wall-to-wall sun, but were sadly disappointed :(. We had a number of overcast days with no sun, and often started the day shrouded in sea-mist which could take anything from 2hrs to 5hrs to clear. The result was a quiet pool area as people didn't want to get into the cold pool - a distinct mood flattener. It would appear this weather is very common for Agadir, but when you book the holiday you are not told about it!! The variable weather would certainly stop us returning to Agadir. Other: Beware the 'hover-boards' - it seems a 'local' things is for children to ride around the complex (and busy reception area) on hover boards, and not 'ridden' with 'due care and attention' for other guests. A lovely hotel but the inconsistent and variable weather did out a bit of a downer on things when it was poor - not a lot to do in Agadir other than walking along the prom. Go, enjoy, but don't count on the weather .....More

Relaxing hotel

Knowing already the hotel, I reserved for 3 nights. My first remark was, there no bath product, and no slipper, furthermore, the key card they gave me, stopped working, I call the reception from my phone, cause the phone in the elevator near my room didn't work, and since the room is far from reception and I was so exausted, I asked them to bring me a new one, but they didn't accept, until I argued with them several minutes. in a nutshell, the service is worseningMore

Stunning Hotel

Just got back from spending a week at the hotel and we loved it ! All staff were so helpful and friendly whether we tipped them or not. Food was fab although I'd recommend booking into Marrakech/Krystal as they get full quick.. And wow! Marrakech restaurant was mind blowing .. Even my picky eater teenager ate the food and the service was fantastic... If I could pick this hotel and move it towards Immouzer/paradise valley then I'd be in my element as Agadir is spoilt by people who just dump litter .. We personally avoided the beach as by lunchtime it became a tip and was awful .. Be warned of scammers .. I was approached by a lad of about 13 near Macdonslds/kfc area who repeatedly stuck his hand in my face and called me Stupid English woman for not giving him money .. He had 2 accomplices with him who would have most probably grabbed my bag if I had ... Apart from This I loved Agadir.. From the banter with the shop owners opposite to the death defying Moroccan drivers and finally the absolutely beautiful Moroccan sunset. Would I recommend this hotel ... Yes indeed and I would also recommend having some photos taken by Abdou.. He is an amazing photographer . More

Sharon T,

holiday from hell

bellow is a chronological order of my holiday which was from the 22nd july to the 5th August 2016. Checked in at 01:30 and given a twin room though we booked a double Toilet in the room was continuously flushing informed reception who advised the repair would be completed within 30 to 40 mins Had to wait in the lobby for over an hour and when I made enquiry, i was advised that the repairmen had not been booked. Note this was now after 02:30 in the morning.Advised it would take a further 30 to 40 minutes for repair Allowed into room after 03:30 Woke up at 08:30 and noticed a colony of red ants within the bathroom I informed reception who said they would move us.Moved to room 4111 Room not acceptable as it faced a busy car park and it was too noisy Moved to room 3143 30 july 2016 04:00 to 04:30hrs we both awoke to sound of running water within the bedroom. I switched on lights and noticed water leaking from ceiling between bathroom and wardrobe Informed reception and advised someone would be sent immediately Waited 35 minutes with no arrival so had to inform reception again of the issue They stated someone would be sent immediately 10 minutes later repairmen arrived and picked up panel where water was leaking carried out work for a few minutes and replaced the panel and left room with water still on the floor Waited 30 minutes for a cleaner who did not materialize on instruction from reception. When I called them again I was advised no cleaner till the morning. Spoken to Dan at 10:00am and informed him of leak within room, he stated he was sorry and they would offer us late checkout on the 4th August 2016. 18:00 wife was in shower and the water for the room stopped working. Informed reception who advised complete system in hotel had gone down. 18:25 water resumed 18:45 I was retrieving items from our safe and the panel above me collapsed onto my head and shoulder I suffered injury to my head and shoulder Requested Thompson Rep – Dan and member of hotel to come to room immediately. Dan commented had “I upset somebody” when seeing the collapsed tile. Dan advised me to contact him next day to complete Accident report form Called into Managers officer – Mr Nadir who stated he was sorry and he will move me again. Moved again to room 4139 Room 4139 Once unpacked we found the air conditioning in room was not working Again informed reception who said they would get it fixed. Was informed at 10:30pm that air conditioning could not be repaired so we were moved yet again. Moved to 2147 Room 2147 Room was adequate bar the safe which was locked and not able to be used. This was rectified the next day but then it refused to close so required a further repair. 31st July 2016 Searched for Dan to complete Accident Report Form but he could not be found. Spoke to another rep Hatim Amouzg who filled in the form and I refused to sign and stated i would make the relevant enquiry with Thompsons as to further redress. I was informed by Hatim that Thompson would and I quote “not reimburse me for anything and that all us British people are the same and only about money, it is the hotels fault and Thompson will not pay me anything” I informed him that it was fortunate that as an adult this had happened as had this been a child that we would be discussing serious injury or a potential fatality. I was then promised express checkout but they could not offer me VIP lounge as it was not Thompsons. To say I was disgusted by the derogatory bordering on racial comment of Hatim is an understatement. To use the term “us British” and directing it as me and my wife clearly demonstrates the mentality of some of your reps. When I asked who was his boss he wanted to know, why I wanted to speak to her, I advised that I did not feel comfortable leaving my details with him based on his comments. He finally told me his boss was Collette who did not make any contact with us at the hotel and I personally had to contact her which shows your lack of customer service and care considering I had suffered injury. When i finally spoke to her she seemed totally disinterested in my situation and stated the reps had done all that they could have done. I find this wholly inadequate and if this si the level of service that a supposed team leader believes is reflective of the Thompson brand then it clearly puts Thompsons way down the order of professional service provision. 4th August 2016 we reached the airport and informed we could not have the express checkout that we were promised External incidents at hotel Experienced and witnessed numerous violent altercations at poolside. Lack of consistency as to customer service. The staff only provided a trolley service by poolside and nuts and olives appeared on tables when the senior management team has decided to visit the hotel on the 3rd August 2016. This was a total misrepresentation of the hotels facility and service level as this was not done on any other day. The premium branded drinks also magically appeared on display on the 3rd August 2016 and when other customers and I had asked for these drinks on previous days they were blatantly hidden away and we were told they were out of stock. there was Lack of entertainment for adults. Cocktails were all made differently at each of the bars and did not reflect what was advertised. The premium Italian restaurant was exactly the same as the buffet in that you had to pick a slot so you could go to the restaurant to pick your own food. Wifi was poor and consistently did not work. i would not recommend this hotel as it not 5 star at most it is a 3 star. it is a shame i have had to write this review as i was confident this hotel would have been amazing. i am sure that with a few tweaks and improvemets it can again reach its 5star ratinig.More
