Connecting rooms sleep up to 3 adults in each room. They come with a ceiling fan and a mini-fridge. You'll need to book 2 of these room types and then you'll get 2 rooms side by side with a lockable door across the hallway separating both these rooms from the corridor. In order to use them as connecting, the single door to the corridor should be locked and the 2 room doors left open. There isn't a door directly between the 2 rooms.
Stayed here in July with my daughters 13/10
From start to finish had a fantastic holiday, lovely hotel, staff, rooms, food, grounds are all faultess
Entertainment at night on the terrace was good, i didnt go to the theatre as enjoyed terrace, kikds both went with the entertainment team and there new friends and had a good time..
Seen my 10 year old at breakfast then she was off with the entertainment team until lunch time, then a quick hi dad and off with friends until late afternoon. Felt at ease she was safe,enjoying herself and visibile all the time to me whilst i swam etc with my eldest daughter, the odd shout over and she'd fetch us drinks to the pool lol.
Im blessed with two great kids who i can take on 'holiday with out any bother, they dont ask for much and never once do they shout, scream, strank :)
Big shout out to Michelle from Thomson, she's truly a lovely woman and great rep, we met her two weeks previous on a flight when i stayed at different hotel ewwwww my mistake!
She remembered us, always spoke and when issue with room lock it was sorted asap, oh and when the flight home we were sat on different rows within the plane she had it sorted within minutes.
Thanks Michelle :)
Shame she cant be cloaned and sent to the riu in mexico instead of some idiot Jamie moore, My next review will reveal why :)More

We travelled with Thomson to the Riu Tikida in early October for a weeks holiday. After arriving on a night flight, we travelled about 20 minutes to the hotel. On arrival we were shown into the restaurant for food & drink which they had kindly put on. Even at this late hour the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Our room which was more than adequate in size was very dark (dark brown paint on ceiling), so any woman will understand how this can be quite a challenge when getting ready!! But, having said that, this is the only minus in a great hotel. The staff are exceptional, always willing to help with a friendly smile. The food was varied and fresh and plenty of it. The grounds around the hotel are the best I have seen, stunning and the swimming pool one of the biggest. A relaxing, friendly and beautiful hotel to go to.More

Don't really know where to start!
Arrival - only 25 mins from the airport which is great. We were on a night flight so we didn't arrive at the hotel until gone 11pm but they had kept the restaurant open for us! Cocktail on arrival also âº
Room - lovely and big. Cleaned every day without fail, fresh complimentary bottled water in the room every day, comfy bed.
Pool - MASSIVE! I think if all the guests at the hotel got in then there would still be room for more!
Of course there were a lot of eager beavers that got up to put towels on sunbeds but it's really not necessary here as there are more than enough! The two pool bars are fab and we had fantastic service every single day. I personally only took part in one of the activities (yoga) but there was plenty to get involved in if you wanted.
The pool area is super clean, as are the two lots of pool area toilets.
Oh and you get given cards on arrival that will get you a clean and dry towel for the pool area, so don't panic if you don't have room to pack one ð
Meals - there are 3 restaurants. One main, one italian and one moroccan.
All 3 are superb with so much variety! You can sit inside or outside for breakfast and lunch which is lovely! Don't forget to grab a bread roll to feed the fish, ducks and turtles in all 4 ponds!
All water served is in bottles and even the ice is made from bottled water so don't worry about that.
The lobby bar in the evening is lovely just to have a relaxing drink and chat, the theatre bar is where to go for all the entertainment and for a livelier evening. Both are great.
Service - we received outstanding service from beginning to end. Bearing in mind that 20dh is roughly Â£1.80 we tipped 20dh per night to the barman serving us.
Money - don't change your money in England! Change it at the hotel! It is a closed currency so just exchange a little at a time because the exchange rate from dh back to pound is awful.
You get roughly 12dh to Â£1.
Trips - ok these entirely depend on what you are looking to get out of your holiday....... if you are just going for sun and chilling out then i would recommend only one of the trips and that one is called "calechÃ¨ by night" this is where you go by horse and carriage to the medina. Here you have a chance to experience the local food and culture whilst it's not as hot as the day time.
we went on two trips, one was the "discover marrakech" this (including travel) is all day 8am-6pm, we personally found it too long and quite boring, but that's personal preference. We then did the "Atlas Mountains" if there was one day trip i would recommend then it is this one for sure! I wont go into detail as your rep will tell you all about it.
The spa - awesome! My husband and i had various treatments, good prices and soooooo relaxing!
To sum up, its a wonderful place and a beautiful hotel with everything a relaxing holiday is meant to be. Will be returning for some more winter sun!More
Come and try Morocco..
Well what can I say. The reviews were good so we took a chance and were happy with what we found.
Our first trip to Morocco was a success with the hotel being great quality and value. The staff are very friendy and helpful. The food is good but could be better. To be honest a few food hygiene concerns but when in Rome....
If your thinking of booking take the plunge, if you don't like cold pools you wont take the plunge on arrival but imsure you will find fun and relaxation. I would visit again.
Dont want to go home in 5 hours time.More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on the 18th September 2014 for 1 week! Booked through TUI. Transfer to hotel was at night so we didn't see to much of where we were going in Marrakech, but on arrival at the hotel we were welcomed with a drink and ushered through to a late dinner which was lovely and needed! In the mean time our luggage was stored for us and after a quick bite to eat we checked in at Reception. As it was dark it was challenging to find the hotel room but we managed without getting too lost, the bags arrived at the room shortly after (however we decided to have some drinks at the pool bar so I couldn't tell you if they took along time to arrive or not!!)
Rooms are very big and well equipped also spotless!!!! We had a ground floor room in the 4000 block so nice and close to the pool! 5 minute walk to the restaurants / reception but I'd say needed with the amount of food we ate!! Pool is fantastic and the entertainment team were brilliant!!!! Encouraging but not pushy!!! The evening entertainment is always the same in these resorts...average....however the entertainment team had an impromptu dance off at the pool bar one evening which was the so much more current and entertaining than the normal shows! Saying this they did have a couple of men playing guitar and singing acoustic most evenings at the pool bar which was our preference on most nights!!
We went on the 'Taste of Riad' trip arranged through TUI which was fantastic, I've never eaten so much! around 12 of us from the hotel were bussed to a small Riad in the centre of Marrakech and walked by lantern to the entrance, we sat in an open air section drinking cocktails eating nibbles and listening to a guy play the lute (mini Guitar) after an hour or so we were all moved to the dining area and the eating experience began (if you book this trip don't eat all day before you go, there's around 6 courses) you get a real taste of authentic cooked cuisine and we thoroughly enjoyed it, after dinner with mint tea and a brandy / crÃ¨me de menthe in hand the belly dancer and band begin which is a nice way to end the evening, you can tip if you want but again no need. You're bussed back for around 11.30pm so still time to have a nightcap before the bar closes.
We ventured into the Souks on the courtesy bus one morning just for a couple of hours, not my thing if I'm honest, very busy and I felt a bit hassled and hot in such a packed environment! Saying that if you are in Marrakech then you need to experience the souks, but it just wasn't for me, glad I did it but won't be rushing back!
Before we travelled I read a lot on trip advisor about the hotel and it really put my mind at rest. Of course everyone's holiday experience and expectations differ and you may read things about the alcohol being watered down (its not by the way, its strong and does taste different to Smirnoff or branded alcohol here but it does the job) or saving of sunbeds (you can if you want they put the beds out around 7.30am but there's no need unless you want a specific area) but overall I thought the hotel was fantastic and would definitely recommend. It's clean, the staff are great, the food is plentiful and varied, all the facilities are there and most of all it's relaxing and quiet!! So If you're reading this and already booked it! Lucky you!!More
