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.

do not listen to negative reviews

Like everyone I read reviews and was slightly worried but there is no need to worry at all. Welcome drink on arrival and met with very friendly reception staff and they continued to be through out the holiday. We didn't meet one unfriendly staff member, from the cleaners to the gardeners everyone was very friendly. Entertainment team were amazing, loads to do. Darts, water polo, beach volley, water volley, table tennis, aerobics, water aerobics, stretching, darts, bingo, football plus probably more that I have missed out. All staff work so hard to make peoples holiday enjoyable, a big 5 star to all members of staff at the hotel. Food was superb, my teenage daughter loved all the food, I read a review earlier about there being no chicken nuggets and nothing for children, what a load of rubbish. Don't be so picky is what I say. Its north Africa not Skegness. There is a different theme night from Spanish to Moroccan night, so plenty of variety. Barbecue lunch every lunch time and breakfast is good to. Wasps are only a problem if you leave your empty cup about, take it back to the bar straight away and you will not be bothered by them. Rooms are clean, average size and we had no problems at all. Saw 2 cockroaches all holiday, but again its Africa you will see some sort of bug. Sunbeds we went down everyday at 8.00 and always got a sunbed in the same spot. I think the only problem with the sun beds was if you wanted a pool side bed. There were plenty for everyone, but I agree people were getting up early to reserve beds. We did 4 Thomson trips, the cascades was a super day out, but was a very long journey. History of Marrakesh was ok, not really for kids but ok souks a experience you need to do. Road to Kasbahs ok, didn't go into a Kasbah which we could have done, told no time and then went to an optional carpet shop. night time entertainment, live singing every night which we enjoyed. Other entertainment is ok, iv e seen worse but Moroccan night good, they must hire other people to come into do it. Mr and Mrs night ok, the parrot show didn't go to plan but it was passable. Rest of shows done by entertainment team, they were fine. Wifi cant comment because I turn my phone off on hols and my teenage daughter was nt bother about going on it, to must sport to do. Ive tried to think of a negative comment but cant, the reps are good especially the 2 local ones, prob good idea to book your late check out straight away think it was about 30 pound til 4 ish. Gym was ok, had indoor pool and dance room. didn't use spa, but friends said it was good. Had certain football games on in bar most nights, which was popular with us brits wanting to keep up to date, also the eng v france rugby matches which was great banter between the English and French guests. I liked the daily whats on news sheet, A nice touch. The shop, not run by the hotel, was so expensive cost us 18 pound for a small bottle of sun cream, plus our friends bought some tooth paste and travel size tube cost 3 pound, they obviously know they can charge what they want, so make sure you bring plenty. overall, nothing to worry about, Morocco is very safe and friendly and so is this hotel. Many Thanks for a superb holiday.More

A 5 star experience from start to finish

Having booked a package tour with First Choice (£496 each AI- travelled 29th May 2015) for our first trip to Marrakesh and in fact Morocco I was decidedly anxious. WOW I needn't have worried. From start to finish (that includes First Choice by the way) it was amazing. We upgraded to extra space seats for £25 - this I would say probably isn't worth it - if you don't have children with you go for bulk heads much more space in all ways but don't forget a jumper sitting in these seats are a bit chilly. On arrival to Menara airport I was pleasantry surprised at the cleanliness. A quick walk across into the car park and we are on our way to the hotel. Based in the Palmerie district (the upmarket district of Marrakesh).We arrived around 10.30 in the evening -( A security guard an barrier sits at the entrance and security guards always patrolling the gardens) and expecting the normal long queues and crispy edged sandwiched (yep you know - the ones they made at 11am that morning and kept out for you!) Well I was wrong - we off loaded the coach - bags being taken care of by the bellboys and security guards and were told the restaurant was being kept open for us so to go in and eat and then when ready come back and check in. So, first impressions are great. I know what you are thinking but you are wrong - If possible the service was better everyday, never can do enough to make you smile or to ensure you have a fantastic time Food choice and quality was amazing. Although disappointed with the Moroccan restaurant, the Italian one was fab and makes a nice change from the normal restaurant - Although I though the food was fab and I am kinda fussy. Be warned though you have to book the speciality ones through reception, they give you a slip with your name and room number on so you can get in. The main eatery was superb. So much choice, meat, fish, veg, as always a buffet style and you wander around and help yourself. They try and cater for everyone - even having a separate buffet for the kids if you so wish. Soft drinks on tap and pre poured wine so you never have to wait for a drink. Genius. Breakfast a similar affair although on Sunday mornings you get bucks fizz as well as coffee and tea.(Amazing choice of tea too) Rooms are large and kept immaculately clean - the cleaners always smiling. Rooms are dark as curtains are kept close - this is because the sun is so hot its a welcome relief for the coolness. We stayed on ground floor and had no bugs at all. A few frogs wander around as the gardens are extensive and pools adorn the space but apart from that its great. Great entertainment crew- kids and adults alike are entertained until the small hours but it includes cooking presentations as well as darts - again something for everyone but you are quite able to sit back and relax and let the day go past in the sun as I did. The pool and pool area is huge always able to find a bed, the best ones are under canvas out of the sun but you do have space so again can sit out from the shade and spend the day in the midday sun (mad if you do but definitely take a high factor sun cream cos its HOT. Evenings are what you want them to be - in one corner an ambient music chilled bar scene and on the other a little louder and a lot more boisterous - truly something for everyone. For me though, its the staff, they make this hotel a five star - always a smile and nothing and i mean nothing is too much trouble for them. We did tip, but it didnt change the service at all so there is no need I just felt I wanted to reward them to show my appreciation of the service - we dont do that enough sometimes. WIFI is available in the main lobby or bar but it is hit and miss. If you've got this far in the review I will endeavour to tell you a little more about the location and the city. As I said its located in the Palmarie "Upmarket" district of Marrakesh, free shuttle bus to the Souks and Market or a taxi ride cost is around £10 but remember this is where it gets tricky - the currency is closed which means you cannot take it in and you cannot take it out. Don't be alarmed though there are plenty of cash points (one in the hotel lobby) and most souk stalls will have a card machine. We went to the Tanneries to see how the leather is processed from start to finish. An amazing experience but the smell still remains with me now - it isnt for the feint hearted. There is a petrol station about 3 minutes from the hotel for those of you that are brave enough to drive (Okay on those roads out of the city but within the main areas the roads run very fast and people rush by on mopeds (usually with a family of four attached to me seeing is believing!) A cash and carry about a 20 minute walk (a little further than the petrol station and the drink is cheap) Remember to haggle in the Souks - it is expected and its kinda fun. Dont be afraid to go out to the market - they do hassle you but only for a short time and if you do not make eye contact or stop they move on quickly. Its really not an issue. I wasn't brave enough to try the sheep's heads available in the market the flies put me off! but it is way worth the visit.We wandered around on our own and didnt do organised trips. We had 2 meals 2 tagines and 2 kebabs on skewers big dishes with cous cous or chips 4 soft drinks and the was £8. Remember it isnt England and no booze is sold unless in a hotel. I would definitely recommend the walking tours with one of the locals - take some change with you as if you get lost a local will show you the way for a small fee. The only other thing you should try is the Hamman or for the men a full shave. So cheap and well worth the experience. French is widely spoken as is English... so you wont have any issues at all. If you have never been GO. I went and Im really glad I did and I cant wait to go backMore

I Prefer a Beach Holiday

This hotel is very nice with a very big pool which can get very busy during peak times. There is room for improvement round the pool it lacks character and needs more permeant shaded areas rather than some canvas that needs to put up by the pool guys also you need to get your sun beds reserved early. The staff are excellent could not do enough for you the food quality is very good but lacks a little more variety from some other RIU's we have stayed in but could not really complain. Entertainment was good the RIU team really tried their best. I would recommend this hotel more to family's not couples also as a 4star and certainly not platinum.More

A surprisingly good hotel for the price with fantastic pool

Holidayed here with my husband and 2 teenage children for a week mid August. Can't fault the hotel at all except for one biggie if you're travelling with teenage children - wifi!!! Like it or not when most of us are spending time with teenagers the majority of them are going to want to use wifi at some time during the stay. The only wifi available is in the lobby and from about 6.30 pm to 12 midnight it is almost impossible to connect for more than a couple of minutes, if you're lucky, and even then the speed is frustratingly slow. However..... this aside, we would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Very decent quality food for an all inclusive, large and very clean rooms, polite staff, fantastic pool (we loved the indoor one too when it got really hot). Reception staff very helpful. Great location for visiting the town. There is a free shuttle bus but we used taxis approved by the hotel for our visits, for only around £12 they take you into the centre, come back at the agreed time and only then take your payment.More
