We have just returned from a short break at the Tikida Palace. We certainly picked the right week as we missed all the UK snow. This is our 3rd visit and it is still one of our favourite hotels . The staff are the hotels biggest asset and all staff in all areas are always friendly, helpful and happy . We have to mention Soufiane who always looks after us so well and Hannan and Khadija who made every visit to the main restaurant a real pleasure . The entertainments team did a sterling job particularly during the days that is rained and stand out star is YoYo who was funny and did a great job with the bingo and boules. The food as usual was excellent and lovely to see the Head Chef always present and keeping an eye on things . Carlos was also wonderful in sorting a minor issue with outstanding customer service. We will return and hopefully soon😊🌟🌟🌟
We decided to book a last minute holiday to this hotel and we had a lovely week. The room had a mini bar with free refreshments. The waiters were brilliant and my glass was never empty. The reception staff, bar staff and maids were all brilliant. This hotel has WIFI everywhere. The safe is free. One of the main things I would like to mention is that the bedding could be cleaner and as mentioned in some of the reviews below as soon as you have stepped out of the hotel your being harassed on the way to the beach by people trying to sell you things. A bit of information that is handy to know one side of the pool is heated the one with the pool bar is cooler. I feel that there should be more tables set up in the restaurant for couples as a few times I had to sit on the same table as others. Overall I would recommend this hotel.
just returned from a weeks break for my birthday. this was our seventh visit and the hotel was as good as ever. it never disappoints us. even though the weather was not at its best it did not spoil our holiday. every time we go back its like visiting our family. the only winge i have is. even the lobby bar is non-smoking more and more people are using e-cigarettes and are using them in non smoking areas. at the end of the day it still makes vapors and is uncomfortable for a non smoker when it is blowing in your direction.
My wife and I visited for the first time in February and have just been blown away by how amazing the staff are and by an act of kindness from one member of the team in particular. More about that in a moment. The hotel is lovely, right on the beach, with gorgeous grounds and seating areas. Loads of beds around the pool area. Food was lovely and I love a strong coffee, and was always well looked after. We were greeted with kisses and hugs at meal times but the staff in the restaurants who do an amazing job. We’ve never been so well looked after and for me this hotel is rated so highly by so many people, due to its fantastic staff and is fully deserving of its People’s choice award. The act of kindness I mentioned, is not about just excellent customer service, it’s about making a difference to people’s lives. I managed to leave my wallet in my car at the airport (I’m an idiot, I know!) and had no money/cards etc. I explained our situation to a guy on reception when I arrived, who suggested a Moneygram transfer from someone in the UK. This was great and a big relief, but would take a couple of days to come through. What he did next was just so life affirming, and it blew us away. He went to his own wallet, took out the 300 Dirhams he had in there and offered it to me. He was meant to be meeting friends after his shift, but here he was, offering people he’d never met before his own money. That is going above and beyond what is expected and his generosity made my wife cry!! That guy was Soufyane and he is now classed as a friend, and by the way I only borrowed 100 Dirams. Soufyane, you’re an amazing person and we thank you so much for looking after us and for organising flowers for our anniversary. RIU Palace is filled with people like Soufyane. So welcoming and feel like family. Cheaper than the Med, Staff are so much more customer focused and the hotel is just lovely. Don’t delay people get it booked. We’ll be back!! Please tip the staff, if your happy with the service in Dirhams. PS - My wife insists I tell you that all inclusive includes Bombay for you Gin lovers. Hope that helps Richard & Kim
Spent a week here with my wife (Feb 26th - Mar 5th). The hotel is located on the beach front promenade of Agadir which stretches a few miles. The hotel was excellent with regards to food, always a great choice and something for everyone. The staff in the restaurants are fantastic, well mannered, making your dining experience enjoyable. Again at the bars service was excellent serving branded drinks. There is also a waiter service for drinks, again giving great service. The week we were there the weather was mixed but 100 times better than the UK snow drifts. Entertainment by the bar was relaxing piano medlays with a singer, whereas in the main entertainment room it was varied and what we saw was ok. Our room was on the ground floor and was excellent. To me the best rooms are the even numbered ones that overlook the pool and in particular on floors 3 and four. The tourist mix in the hotel was evenly spread between ourselves, the French and Germans. If you are a golfer this hotel is ideal for you also. Weather in summer at this resort due to its location gets uo to about 28 degrees centigrade so is ideal and not too hot. So as a first time traveller I really enjoyed the hotel and the area and would go back again in a few years time. Mike.
Just returned from one week stay at the end of February. We had a relaxing time here where the staff are very attentive from the gardeners to the reception staff and will always acknowledge you with a smile and hello. The variety of food and drink is excellent and probably one of the best hotels we have stayed in. We had a room on the 4th floor with sunny south facing balcony and while the weather was not exceptional the sun was usually warm enough to sit out in by 10.30 and afternoon temperatures reached lows 20's. Plenty of sunbeds around the pool but as with anywhere you seem to go these days everyone likes to reserve there spot early although you can really only do this after 9.00. The beach area in front of the hotel is roped off but it is still possible to be bothered by hawkers but once you tell them you are not interested they will move on. I did have a Hammam massage which was a really nice experience unlike any I have had before, being completely naked for the Hammam part, but the staff are very discrete and you soon forget your inhibitions! A couple of warnings if you want to watch any football ask at the reception and they will have it transmitted in the entertainments hall if possible as they can get all premiership games. Don't go to the English pub as drinks are expensive £11 for pint and glass of wine. Also if you go on a visit to the Kasbah watch out for people taking your camera for pictures with camels or with snakes they might drape round your neck as you may have to pay to get them back.
Booked through TUI and stayed here for 7 days from 12-19 October '17 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hotel is located close to the beach and is surrounded by beautiful, well-maintained landscaped gardens. There are has lots of on-site amenities; a shop, spa, gym, art room, bars, 3 restaurants and ample seating areas to just chill and relax. The staff were extremely attentive, polite and friendly and seemed to enjoy their work. Meals were of a good standard and catered for all tastes. There were some standard items at every day; pizza, chips, salads and pasta - but also a different meal theme each evening. There were plenty of sun beds and towels available by the outdoor pools. Rooms were clean and the free mini bar well-stocked each day. I don't drink alcohol and my only criticism was with the quality of the unlimited soft drinks on offer. Apart from fizzy drinks, it would've been nice if the fruit punches etc. contained 'real' juice and not the powered stuff full of artificial additives and sweeteners. Another annoying thing was outside the hotel grounds by the beach there were a few vendors and beggars harassing you to part with your money, which was a little off putting - so beware. Overall a lovely and refreshing stay. Would highly recommend.
The hotel purports to be 5* hotel, but is not: there are cracked/broken tiles around the outdoor pools areas: the bathroom towels are not threadbare but are not the softest nor fluffiest we have come across: parts Requires re decoration. reservations in the a la carte “Fusion” and “Marrakech” restaurants are hard to come on the later (8.30pm) of both sittings or each. On the other hand the staff are ultra helpful while being family and child friendly. Other reviewers suggest that the serving staff pressurize guests for tips, we did not experience this, but as their wage is about €275*, who could blame them. Compared to the neighboring RUI hotels security is less obtrusive, while differing colour wrist bands are required for access to each. The Tikida Palace has Separate gym and exercise rooms thereby offering a choice of self chosen workouts and over seen classes. There are a heated & ordinary exterior pools and an Indoor heated pool. The staff are all Moroccan with plenty of them. Compared to similar quality hotels in the Canaries there is considerably less food waste. The staff give the hotel a charm and character not often found. Being able to speak Arabic or French will ease any communication problem, with English being widely understood. As this is an “all-in” hotel, the holiday can, without an element of self control, turn into a food & drink fest. The tariffs ensures that there is little trouble from rowdy or baudy guests. * per month.,
This hotel was absolutely fantastic. Our room was lovely, in immaculate condition and spacious. The hotel grounds were so peaceful and relaxing. The gardens were well maintained. The staff were wonderful, everyone was so pleasant and couldn't do enough to help you. The food was nice and varied. However because we were vegans we were a little limited but we still ate well. We went for my birthday and the housekeeper left a beautiful display of roses for me. They also left gifts for us on christmas eve which I loved. The entertainment team work hard to provide a varied programme which we enjoyed. On the negative side, I guess the only thing I can say is that the chefs don't speak much english to ask about the content of the food but the restaurant manager is really helpful so it isn't really an issue. Also, sometimes we felt as though the younger waiters were a bit nervous of their bosses which isn't really nice to see. Overall though it is a wonderful hotel and we can't wait to return.
This is a good hotel with beautiful gardens/foliage and pool. It’s right on the sea front. The staff were the highlight friendly, attentive and accommodating. Our room was decent but the bathroom didn’t have a lock which was awkward because I travelled with friends and not family! The food was quite varied but was of average quality I would have expected better of a 5 star resort. I recommend this hotel for location, staff and the beautiful grounds.
