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.
It's here that you'll have the choice of eating in the main restaurant or al fresco on the terrace. There’s a mix of local specialities and international favourites, so you’ll find everything from chicken tagine and couscous to pasta dishes on offer, along with live cooking stations.
These twin rooms have the added bonus of a pool view and feature a cream backdrop with soft chocolate tones. They can sleep up to three with either twin or a double bed, plus a sofa-bed in the living area. There's air-conditioning or heating and a ceiling fan for your comfort, too.

Staff are very friendly and always happy to help. The hotel and grounds are very modern and well presented. Rooms are spacious and cleaned regularly thoughout the stay. Food at the alacarte restaurants is very good, be sure to book early in your stay. The food at the main restaurant is good quality for an AI hotel, normally very fresh but avoid going towards the end of opening hours at lunchtime. If you ask for an international brand it might not be what you're expecting as we often watched staff empty local branded spirits into international bottles, only a minor irritation and local brands are still drinkable.More
Started off well but went downhill
We have never been all inclusive before so our first impressions at this hotel were great. Lots of food options and unlimited beverages, a proverbial feast, But during the week the food became a bit predictable and surprisingly, of different quality. This was even so at the Marrakech and Krystal restaurants which by the way, are free to book if you are on all inclusive. The staff however are immense. So happy, so helpful and so much the jewel in this hotels crown. The rooms are ok ( the pool view rooms are great) but even so, we found that there was a fair bit of noise from our neighbours :( At the rear of the hotel is a remarkable beach; not private as one poster had noted but I am not surprised as it is over 4 miles long! The beach and promenade do get busy particularly on a Sunday when all of Agadir seem to converge! The promenade is great though, really good, and a 30-40 min walk to the marina. Expect to be hassled by various 'traders' at the front and back of the hotel but a polite 'No' should see them off.More
MrN1958, Fife, United Kingdom
The hotel is held together by the most amazing helpful friendly staff, waiters, waitresses, animation team , pool staff and cleaners. However take them away and you have a boring hotel. The doors are so noisy and the cleaners start so early that there's no opportunity to lie in and the floors are so thin you here everything above . it feels like a prison. also if you don't have male companions then you won't safely be able to leave the hotel without being quite aggressively harassed .. The food was just a weird combination of everything chucked together and soooo repetitive and the evening entertainment was dull almost on par with a poor butlins site instead of 5* hotel. Would never come back, which is a shame as we lots of lovely friends , but it was them that made the holiday and not the actual accommodation of the hotel. Tips: Get a room in the top floor . Eat out at the port for a change of scenery but go in a group or with a male. 5 stars for cleanliness and staff .. But not enough to make a good hotelMore
We had a 4 nights in this hotel in November for my birthday.It is definitely best hotel I've stayed in and been to a few places before.we was unlucky with the weather as it rained most of the time we've been there however the hotel facilities and rooms standard made it up to us.

A Palace at Morocco!!
My Husband & I went to the Palace 6th to 13th April. What a great time we had. impressive reception, lovely large rooms, wonderful views, hard working staff the list is endless.
The food was out of this world. We liked the other restaurants for a change of scenery.
Can not fault any of the meals we had, we are both on diets now. The pool areas and grounds were spotless clean as was the hotel everywhere. The staff work so hard ( All of them). The hotel is in a lovely spot on the beach promenade. The Marina is about 40 mins walk to the right of the hotel, with nice shops. We went to chill out and enjoyed every moment of it.Thank You Riu Palace see you again sometime.More
