TOP TIP: don't go to the 'little souk' as this is simply a shop... Of course if you want expensive items and decorative things by all means go, but the big souk is the authentic one which should be seen. The hotel itself is lovely; beautiful decor throughout and really nice rooms. Felt as if there were quite a few steps, which made it difficult for some of the older guests to get around. The older non-English couples were definitely favoured and received the quickest and best service unfortunately... at first we thought it was due to the guests being there longer, but as time went on it was clear they were getting far better service and we were almost ignored sometimes. It was to the extent whereby we were told we couldn't sit somewhere in the buffet restaurant as it was readily laid for other guests, who turned out to be older and French (unsurprisingly). Also it seems that by tipping straight away got you better service, as we experimented with this and it seems the staff want tips before actually providing the service, which in our minds wasn't the usual way to do it; tips for the good service which has BEEN GIVEN usually isn't it?! Several other English people we met felt the same as us. This is a shame as the actual hotel itself was really nice, but this did spoil the overall experience for us. Buffet style food is decent, lots to choose from and it does change so you don't get bored; but there is also the option to book to dine at the fish or Moroccan restaurant which are both nice. Found the buffet restaurant a bit hot, felt as though the air conditioning wasn't on so we opted to sit outside most evenings. Pool area is nice with the option to have almost like a double sun bed, beach is very close which was ideal. We arrived on Saturday evening and we didn't have an issue getting sunbeds in the morning, but by Tuesday we needed to be up to reserve the beds we wanted by 8:30. There seemed to be a shortage of umbrellas, with people taking each others, so would recommend putting an item of clothing on it to avoid this happening!! Towel services aren't great, as there were rarely any towels available when we wanted them... the towel boys would say 'five minutes' and half an hour later some towels would appear.
Primarily the hotel staff heavily favour the French people (due to french being spoken in Morocco), who seemingly can't do anything for themselves... At first it was ok but after a couple of days it got annoying seeing them getting better service (reserved tables and multiple waiters dropping everything and neglecting others to solely serve singular tables...) The atmosphere in the hotel was basically non-existant, there was an activities timetable detailing pool activities and entertainment however I did not once see any of these taking place. There was no music by the pool either, this, coupled with the over abundance of old French guests led to a pretty dull atmosphere. I could count the number of people in the pool on one hand for the majority of my stay. The evening entertainment was the same guy singing, each night, which got very repetitive and boring quickly. He wasn't even particularly good which made it more questionable. We visited during Ramadan, which we soon found out meant that one of the main reasons we chose this hotel (the nightclub and bar) was closed for the entire duration of our stay. Would definitely advise against visiting during Ramadan. Rooms were generally clean and had nice showers but nothing else was in line with the standard of hotels I have previously visited and learnt to expect from a Riu hotel. Agadir is a nice area but I'd definitely steer clear of this hotel if you're looking to actually receive the 4* treatment you're paying for.
Staff at hotel very friendly and hotel lovely surroundings, rooms superb food alright. You can see they do tend to favour the French, don't know if they cant do things for themselves but on the beach even got the staff to move sunbeds around. Amhil in restaurant was a lovely man. Agadir along the promenade was nice, Marrakech was a nightmare chaotic, dirty and even phones pinched in front of you not a good experience and that was on a guided tour Would I go again probably not too much haggling from people.
The hotel is lovely. Staff are super friendly and helpful. The pool area and surroundings are beautiful. The food is of a good quality with so much choice. My only criticism is some of it was quite bland (I can only talk about the fish and vegetarian options as I don't eat Halal meat). The only other thing which was disappointing was on the towel cards and signs around the pool it clearly states no reserving of sun beds, this is not adhered too. We learnt this on the 1st morning. When we went to the beach all the sunbeds were taken, by towels! Security said you can reserve from 7.30. It should state that. Overall though a lovely stay.
Spent 7 nights her and can’t wait to go back. My husband and myself booked this as a quick weeks get away, not too far and reasonably priced, we would of happily stayed longer. Lovely clean hotel with, well decorated and it has a lovely style. The room was very comfy, great pillows and bedding. Lovely powerful shower and nice big towels, some toiletries provided should you wish to use them. Great bar service and the bar staff very picked up on your regular drinks and brought them promptly before you had to order. My favourite bar man was Mohamed, I told him every night he was the best. You also get lively olives and roasted peanuts in the evening before dinner. Nice selection of food every night, lots of choice with plenty of salads and fresh fruit. The fish restaurant was not great, food ok but not atmosphere and very slow due to lack of staff. The Moroccan was ok but you were aware you were eating left overs made into soup, salad and main meal. If you order a glass of wine with your meal you get a whole bottle on the table which was nice. Pool was very cold but lingers comfy and plenty of sun shades. Lovely walk along the beach to the marina, plenty of shops to pop into and even a KFC, Pizza Hut and Maccy Ds. Would highly recommend for a relaxing holiday and we’re already planning our next visit.
great hotel, lovely rooms ,very clean, food fantastic, safe, great view from our room, i loved every meal we had, we got a cabana everyday which was nice, the beach was cleaned every day, adults only was nice the first time we have done that, i would recommend it if you just want to relax, evening entertainment was for a slightly older age group than us , but we had a laugh. the only draw back was the manager, he was very rude .he shouted at us because our room wasnt ready when we arrived, had to sit for 4 hours in the heat, not good, it happened to a few other couples as well . but the rest of the staff were exceptional so attentive
Stayed at tikida beach for last week in may. Hotel is clean and well set out. Directly on the beach. Weather was very hot for 4 days and.overcast for 3. Main pool is clean but very cold and took.some time to adjust once in. Only reason i didnt give 5 stars is the food. Thought meal choices throughout the stay were limited and samey after 7 days. Speciality restaurants fish and morrocon were slightly better but still lacked the wow factor. As this is a hot country was a little disappointed that smart shorts werent allowed for evening meals even in the buffet area. Staff were mostly pleasant however more pleasant to those who tipped. Nice hotel and much needed break.
I just came back from the most relaxing and amazing week at the Riu Tikida Beach. The room was amazing, really clean and larger than expected. Although it faced the road was pretty quiet, but this may have been due to the Ramadan period. The staff were really friendly and thoughtful, remembering the drinks you enjoyed and were most helpful, really going out of their way. I also really enjoyed the food! We stayed with the buffet restaurant due to the variety. Breakfast was a real treat, with a variety of fruits, fruit shakes/juices, delicious pastries and the usual fare. There was a lovely flat bread that I especially enjoyed, which can be found at the hot counter, and highly recommend. Evening and lunch times meals were fab and you could always accompany your meal with a glass of wine (or a bottle!). The Moroccan wine is really lovely so please give it a go. I don't really have a bad word to say about this hotel and would love to come back again.
Second visit to this hotel , the first room we had was a bit rough so complained to reception about the room as not what we requested no balcony,could not fault the replacement room 412, excellent room with loverly views very happy couple a big thank you to the reception staff in particular Yannis (think that's how you spell his name) for the excellent customer service. The rest of the stay was excellent food service was great a really relaxing holiday can't wait to go back.
Just returned from a week here which was booked for a relaxing peaceful adult only week away. The hotel was good and clean and staff on the whole friendly and efficient, especially the bar staff. The pool area is attractively landscaped. However it was May, almost 30 degrees and the pool was so cold it was empty which was a shame. The smaller pool was warmer but again was too cold for most people and the whole pool area was spoiled by young staff thinking all daytime activities had to be accompanied by very loud dance music. As there were only 5 people participating (hotel capacity around 500) it was a shame the peace was spoiled for so many. Tui needs to look at the demographic before booking unpopular activities and realise it is possible to play darts without loud music. We did not book a holiday in Ibiza. There was also the issue of pool staff running out of towels by 10.30am which annoyed a great many people. There was also a shortage of parasols. The hand sanitizer for the restaurant ran out after two days: I returned with a tummy bug. ( don’t think it was the food which was good, more the buffet serving utensils which were handled by everyone) The hotel is opposite the beach which is long and sandy, does get a lot of camel dung on and is not scenic but the sea was good to swim in. We should have done our research as we were expecting a Moroccan city like Marrakesh, it is not, Agadir is a modern concrete city as the old one was destroyed in the 60’s by an earthquake. Note: the hotel were unable to deal with a nut allergy, told just to avoid all deserts.
