ClubHotel Riu Tikida Palmeraie  

Part of our Platinum portfolio, this All Inclusive hotel is a peaceful oasis within easy reach of Marrakech.

This hotel looks like a little village, with annexes sprinkled around 13 acres of gardens. It’s in the smart Palmeraie district of Marrakech, a 15-minute shuttle bus ride from the medina.

Rooms fuse modern style with authentic Moroccan touches like inlaid wooden tables. Food-wise, there’s a handful of restaurants to choose from, while outside a huge pool takes centre stage.

Booked it again already!

My self and a friend stayed at this hotel from the 21st till the 28th August, and I can say that this was a brilliant holiday, There were some negatives which was the fact that we were delayed on the plane, and it took forever to get threw passport control, there was 18 boxes but 3 people on, but that is not the hotels fault and don't blame them but thought it would be worth noting for people traviling. When we arrived at the hotel the staff were waiting to take out cases in for us, we were the first to check in so can't complain about that, we were given a sticker with our room number that we placed on our cases, even though we didn't get to the hotel till well after 1am the restarant was still kept open for us and we were greeted with a nice refreshing drink, we then made our way to our room,it was a little adventure as we didn't know where we were going, but it was a nice stroll, The room was of a big size and had two wardrobes which was good as we both had loads to hang up. Our cases had been dropped off for us already. The next morning we were up to go have breakfast and a lot of the beds had been taken, we did find a space how ever and went to our welcome meeting which for the first time ever I would recommend it was a laugh . The pool area is quite cramped but if u pull your bed away it will be fine, there are fixed umbrellas and you can ask to have a canapé put up but we never did. There sunbeds are a little tired looking and some were broken so make sure you check before hand as there were a few cases of beds braking when people got on them, me included, not to happy. The animation team are great, they come round and recognise if you are a new face, they will ask you to join in, but by the second day of them asking us they soon new we wasn't up for the activities, but did sit and have a chat with us and the other guests,they are very friendly. The second day I did fall in to the having to get up at 7am to get the sunbeds but because we wanted a spot with very little shade, we found that and managed to get the same spot all week, I think it was also down to he fact it was next to the animation box and the speakers but that didn't bother us in one bit. There is music played through out the day, but it is a club riu and the kids do like it as well . The restaurants could not be faulted we were always greeted with a smile,shown to out table, we were always seated in the same area which we liked. The food was great there was a wide varity of choice,my friend is a really fussy eater and found something new to eat every day. The puddings were amazing and were my down fall I must say!! The evening entertainment was ok, I have seen better but has also seen worse, We made friends with a couple there and made our own entertainment by playing pool, and singing along to some of the cheesy songs playing. We only done one trip the celesh by night, I have done it before and it was good, the market comes alive after dark, we did go in to the souks in the day but took the free bus from the hotel, and got a cab back. On our last day we checked out, as we had an evening flight we spent the whole day by the pool and booked a complimentary room to freshen up in, in the evening, which was fine for us. The staff could not do enough for you, and they never expected a tip, We did tip the Staff but at the end of our trip, but they deserved it as they work very hard and are very polite. We really enjoyed our time here, and I have already booked to go back with my sister my son and niece at the end of October.More

Lincolnshire - James

Just come back from a weeks stay. Hotel clean but not what we expected from a platinum hotel. Drinks choice very limited especially for the ladies. Food good but very repetitive. The themed restaurants were disappointing as it was the same buffet food as the main restaurant - the only noticeable difference was the wine was served in carafes instead of by the glass. Both myself and my partner have been ill - during and after our stay. Overall holiday ok but disappointing and illness restricted our ability to travel away from hotel as much as we would have liked. Experience has put us off trying another Riu hotel.More

2nd visit. Loved every minute

This was our second time at this hotel having stayed here two years ago in September. Hotel is lovely. Really good value for money. Food lovely. Both my husband and I had an upset tummy one day each ( different days ). I don't think it was anything to do with the food. The place is spotless and food is always being turned over by the chefs. I started to use bottled water to brush my teeth. It was either the water or a bug doing the rounds. Daily activities good. Evening entertainment shows ok. Nightly singer really good. Enjoyed a night out in the new area of Marrakech. Level 5 bar and jella bar. I would definitely return for a 3rd time. More

Great modern hotel

First impressions were that this hotel exceeded my expectations. The reception area and lobby bar are beautiful. There's a little shop too!. The grounds are pretty with amazing ponds and the resident ducks and toads. Be careful in the evenings as the toads jump out at you. The pool is massive. There can be a struggle to get sun beds after 9am but the pool guys are on hand to get you some beds if you find a good spot. 2 pool bars and a self-service area means you don't have to go far to get a drink. There are loads of activities though out the day inc aqua gym, water polo, crazy darts and bingo. The rooms are spacious and cool with air conditioning. No tea or coffee facilities. Only 2 story blocks. Cleaned every day. Food was good quality but not much choice. A lot brought out day after day. Staff friendly and helpful. A great hotel and with a few tweaks would be amazing (waiter service for drinks, better evening entertainment, tea/coffee facilities in the room, more sunbeds and more food choices). Other rui hotels have these so I am not been a snob. Animation team are working from 10am - 11pm - so much energy and always smiling. Would go back but won't be going back to morocco soon as like to go somewhere difference each year.More
