FIRST IMPRESSION Arrived very late to the hotel, was after midnight before we got to our room. The reception and lobby was very dark. The decor and furnishings are in dark brown, beige, light brown and cream. Amazing ornaments but so dark. Come the morning, not as bad but think more cream and less dark brown would help. THE ROOMS Ours was amazing. So big, plenty of space around the bed. You step down into a living area with sofa, two chairs and a table. Patio doors led to a balcony with comfortable soft armchairs and a rattan table, very private. To the right was the town, to the left the beach and sea. The wardrobes are again dark brown wood, cream would really brighten it up. Two wardrobes, one smaller as it’s taken up by coffee and tea making equipment and below the mini bar which items are replaced every two days. Bottled water seemed to be provided every day for making tea or drinking. If you have many clothes, suggest bring extra coat hangers. There is about eight in each wardrobe. And three drawers in the small one. The toilet had also a bidet. The shower was over the bath but choice of two types of shower. Two separate sinks was excellent so you didn’t get in your partners way. There are no bedside cabinets so nowhere to put your personal bits and pieces. But there is a large area each side of the bed for leaving, books, magazines, glasses etc. There is a large TV but no idea the channels as we never used it. Again it sits on a large area where you can leave towels etc. There is a security safe which is easy to use and free which was good. There is air conditioning in the rooms alternatively you can use the large ceiling fan. The cleaners make the beds everyday, clean towels, replace the items in the mini bars and are excellent. WI-FI This is not automatic and you just have to ask someone at reception for the password, which they give freely. It did say in my brochure that wi-fi was not everywhere in the resort but we did not find this. We could access it from the lobby to the outside pool and to the far end. WATER We cleaned our teeth with the sink tap water but ensured none was swallowed. We also had ice from all the bars in the hotel with no ill effect. We drank bottled water outside and never had anything to eat or drink away from the hotel. MEALS Breakfast catered for every nationality, it seemed. Full English, although the baked beans were not the same. There was continental, pastries, cold meats, pancakes with all sorts of coverings. Many types of eggs, hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, scrambled, omelettes to order. Then there was fresh fruit, three types of melon, orange, grapefruit, pears, peaches, pineapple. Yoghurts, cheeses, hard and soft. So much to choose from. Water and a sparkling wine available along with fruit juices and coffee and tea. Lunch This was in a building by the pool. Again so much to choose from. Traditional Moroccan food, burgers, pizzas, hot and cold meats, salads, different tagine meals. Fish, chips, boiled potatoes, those done in spices. Four ice creams loads of pastries and cakes Dinner Similar to lunch but a more varied choice of hot meats and fish. More of a dinner menu. Wine or beer served in bottles. There is an afternoon tea available with ice cream, pastries and cakes. LIFTS For those that find stairs a bit daunting there are lifts available and inclines instead of steps to get to them. INDOOR POOL/SPA The indoor pool is amazing, it has underwater lights that change colour. It was a bit cold but okay once in. There are toilets which you can change in if needed. I didn’t use the spa or nail bar but if you decide to have your nails painted someone we met had them done, but the girl cut them very short before she painted them. ENTERTAINMENT There are shows on from about 21.30hrs in the Animation Room which is opposite reception. There is a monitor which usually advises you what’s showing that evening or you can ask the animation guys and girls around the pool and they will tell you. Around the pool there aqua aerobics and pool basketball think that’s what it was. Also a pétanque area. Around the lobby bar are chairs and in the evening keyboard player and guitarist sings, very relaxing. Across the lobby there are very many sofas and tables, arm chairs you can relax in. SUN BEDS There are so many round the pool that it would be bad luck if you couldn’t find one. On the beach are sun beds and parasols belonging to the hotel free of charge. THE BEACH Absolutely gorgeous, clean golden soft sand. Unfortunately the water is the Atlantic so is cold. There are camels on the beach which you can hire. DRESS CODE Sleeveless tops were okay throughout the hotel all day and even at dinner. Obviously dinner is more formal but the staff on reception can advise. Outside I asked the security guard if it was okay around the town to have on a sleeveless top and he said it was okay. Even in the shops it was fine. I cannot fault the staff of the hotel who were absolutely marvellous, nothing was too much trouble. Sana in reception was brilliant, she helped my husband order flowers on our 50th anniversary which we celebrated there. There were gorgeous so THANK YOU SANA for making our day wonderful. Aziz in animation made a point of stopping and chatting to us round the pool. The boys and girls of the hotel make this a brilliant place to stay. I recommend it. So relaxing, friendly and the people are so warm and friendly. Even outside they acknowledge you they are so proud of their country and so pleased we had visited it. This is a five star hotel which reflected in the hotel furnishings. Impressive I loved it. Only one complaint. What I don’t want to hear is a boss in a suit, shouting at a member of the dining room staff for doing or not doing something. This should be a private matter and not for everyone to witness. It’s neither clever or professional to do this in public to anyone, let alone to a member of your staff.
This hotel came recommended to us so we decided to give it a go. On arrival we were greeted by the front desk staff who were very friendly check in only took a couple of minutes we were given our wrist bands as this is an all inclusive hotel we were led to our room by staff and helped with our bags. The room was pool facing very spacious and tastefully decorated there was ample storage except we did struggle to store our suitcases there was a mini bar stocked with soft drinks and water a kettle for tea and coffee. We went to check out the facilities there is a fantastic pool area with lots of sun loungers which are very comfortable. The restaurants are buffet style with plenty of selection so there is something for everyone breakfast and lunch is also served the same way you can have a bottle of wine with your lunch and dinner if you like. There are also speciality restaurants an Italian a Morocco and a fusion one the staff are very attentive but not in your face evening entertainment is not great but some of the musicians are not bad. Overall I was very impressed and left relaxed we are giving a lot of taught to returning next year.
Me and my best friend stayed at Rui Tikida Palace for 10 days and I can honestly say it was the best holiday we have ever been on. Staff were incredible, they couldn’t do enough for you! Tab Tab, Mo, Kaly and Khalid! You lads made the holiday so much fun! And to everyone working in the restaurant, you all made the holiday worth it. I’ve never been to a hotel we’re everyone genuinely love there jobs as much as these guys do! I would recommend this holiday to my nearest and dearest! Amazing! We will be back! Miss and love you all! Xxxxx
I read some of the reviews before I left and not sure really what to expect. The night we arrived cold buffet was ready for all passengers on late arrival. A good touch to start a holiday as your hungry and tired. First impressions always count.. here’s to the next 7 days.. Positives: 1) one of the most cleanliness hotels. Cleaning constantly bring maintained throughout the day. 2) Food was hot, fresh and the variety was fantastic. Never got bored of the cuisine. 😜 Probably one of the best all inclusive I have been to. 3) The grounds of the resort were spacious and set in beautiful surroundings. 4) Set on a lavish beach which runs for miles. Promenade runs from hotel along side beach straight to marina. Beautiful views for a stroll. 5) The rooms were extremely spacious, large beds and beautiful balcony to chill of an evening. 6) Internal and external pools were very clean and generous. The loungers were wooden with a padded seat. 7) 4 restaurants .. only went to buffet and Italian. Lovely 🥘 8) Staff couldn’t do more and didn’t expect anything in return. Service with a 😀 at all times. 10/10 9) Gym and fitness centre was on point. Great step, Zumba and stretch classes. 10) the management team always made themselves visible throughout the day and greeted their holidays makers. Improvements: 1) Music throughout the day by the pool. 2) Another restaurant maybe an Indian or Thai. Would be very popular amongst customers. 3) ice cream, crepes etc near pool area throughout the day. Overall an amazing holiday.. definitely will be returning. 😀
We thought the overall standard of the hotel and service and staff was exceptional. The evening entertainment in the bar was very good . Generally food was of a good standard . Reception was excellent they dealt with the numerous enquires etc with understanding and professionalism.

I was hesitant to stay in this hotel after reading the reviews, i don't see how anyone can complain unless they are very very pedantic! The staff cannot do enough for you, they are constantly running around after everyone, offering drinks, taking plates and making sure you are having a lovely time. The hotel itself is amazing, our room was cleaned every day without fail and the rooms are massive too. Food is also very good, like your general all inclusive with lots to chose from and different things each night of the week. The cocktails and drinks are pretty strong but if you ask them they will give you a smaller measure - the lobby bar is open 24 hours too, we spent a few nights down there until 4/5am!! Don't be put off by the weather either, it was cloudy in a morning for a couple of hours in a morning and then glorious sunshine all day - it was about 30- 36 degrees nearly the whole 12 days we were there. You can also book trips through the RIU reps and go out to the marina, very cheap (about £2 in English money). Would 100% recommend this hotel! :)
The Riu Palace is visually stunning, everything looks the part with a beautiful beach at the rear with a immense sunrise/sunset you can have professional pictures frames against! The service is awesome, just laying by the pool we had drinks brought to us before we’d come close to finishing the last one! The staff are friendly and welcoming and happy to help especially if like me your trying to perfect spoken moroccan :) Only tip for Morocco in general is outside the resorts they are still friendly but pushy sales wise, especially with woman. My girlfriend hated that bit.
On first impressions this was going to be an amazing holiday- first abroad holiday in 12 years with my best friend. Room allocated was excellent- on the fourth floor with fantastic views from our balcony. The room was very clean and the beds comfortable with freshly laundered linen. Bathroom towels could do to be refreshed as a bit hard and tired - the pool towels were much nicer. Pool areas busy and you need to get down quickly as towels were put on loungers and lots remained unused for hours. Maybe the staff could monitor unused beds and remove towels if they have been vacant for more than 2 hours. Lack of loos. We had to go back to our room as there were only three ladies toilets next to the snack bar which I queued at every time I went over there, our room was at least clean and not as far to walk. The other toilet next to the gym was dirty with wee all over the floor and smelled disgusting. Riu really needs to provide more toilets near the pool area as there are a lot of people drinking a lot. I dread to think how much is done in the pools! On several occasions the area near our lift shaft had urine on the floor and in the lift itself. Went to beach - ok but didn’t want to be hassled and the smell of camels was very strong and unpleasant. The food looked amazing with a vast selection and beautifully presented. However a lot of it wasn’t that warm. We tried the Krystal restaurant and we were both ill the next day with upset tummies. Later that day we discovered that another couple who’d be there at the same time as us had also succumbed to upset stomachs. We cancelled our trip to the Moroccan restaurant because of this and just tried to eat food that we felt would be safe to eat. The other restaurant was the Italian - it’s a buffet and not that great. Nothing different really to the main buffet restaurant. On the last night we ate buffet and overnight I was ill again so decided not to eat anything more there. Other people we chatted with had also suffered with upset tums. Now the other point I should make is that cocktail were made with ice and the blenders rinsed in tap water so this could have been the cause of the ‘runs’. We flew back to the UK the next evening having had nothing but bottled water. I couldn’t wait to have a snack on the plane but that didn’t help matters. I’m just thankful that we had Imodium + with us and we pretty much consumed the whole packet! First holiday I’ve ever lost weight! In summary wouldn’t say this hotel was 5* and there is a definite hygiene issue with tap water being used on food or blenders/glasses. Staff friendly but there was clear favouritism - probably due to tipping but I’m afraid when you pay all inclusive you shouldn’t expect to have to keep dipping into extra money. The porter that dropped our cases wasn’t going to leave our room without. Won’t be revisiting this particular hotel sadly.
