“Amazing holiday, beautiful hotel”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

We stayed here 21st-31st may! We loved every min! The only thing that wasnt open was the spa, hairdresses, but why would u use hairdresses on holiday! The pool bar is open but because nobody sat there it looked closed, but all you had to do was let one of the bar staff know you was there! The pool area was beautiful! Our room was amazing, no draw space but wasnt that bothered! Tea, coffee making facilities, fridge was stocked up every day! U need a pool view because other views wernt great! One disappointment was the beach! Didnt have the wow factor like the hotel! Its a small area cordened off well away from the sea! Food was excellent, couldnt fault it and im an extremely fussy eater!! When u leave hotel theres not much around just tat shops! You will have 2 haggle 4 everything and they will try and get u in there shops! But they didnt make me feel intimidated just annoyed at times! In your welcome meeting moez will tell you how to deal with them best! This hotel is by far the best in agadir! We walked down to the other rius about 10 mins walk away, they didnt have a patch on riu palace! I would deff go back although we think in a years time it will b really expensive and full of posh people lol! :) so dont worry like i did thinking you wil arrive at a building site! Not like that at all! Enjoy

Just returned from 10 nights here and we loved it on the whole. The hotel is beautifully furnished and the rooms are very spacious and modern. Probably the best part is the staff. They are all without exception top class and definitely five star worthy. The deputy manager was outstanding, very professional and took an interest in guest stays frequently. The all inclusive is the best we have experienced yet with amazing variety of very good food and branded drinks!! The pool is amazing and not over crowded (initially) which we really liked. Plenty of quality sunbeds available and drinks served round the pool...heaven! The evening entertainment was good. Very relaxing bar area with a singer/pianist/sax player who were super and then a show most nights for something a bit livelier. The staff work so hard during the day and then take part in the show at night! Impressive.

This hotel is the best five star hotel we have ever stayed in for value. BUT, in our last few days a different type of guest arrived, including a couple of gobby british girls who decided on being very rude to the deputy manager about their boyfriends having to wear trousers in the restaurant. He handled it brilliantly. There were also lots of families and the pool atmosphere changed a little with loud music being played from about 1pm through till 5ish. Staff were allowing guests to dictate the volume and I really felt this let the hotel down and ruined the tranquility the hotel had excuded just a few days before. We are early thirties and love a party at the best of times, but even we felt this was disappointing and actually were quite glad we were leaving!

We would definitely go back but would book it at a quiet time with the hope the 'dance music round the pool' feedback had been taken on board! Stick the price up by a few hundred quid to make sure the right type of guest is attracted and make it adults only. I would then confidently call this a world class hotel. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Book a pool view room.

I have spent 3 nights in May 2012 in hotel Riu Palace Tikida Agadir during my trip in Morocco. I have to say, that the hotel is excellent. Very charmy atmosphere, luxury equipment. The room was enough spacious. The food excellent. Nice staff in the restaurant. Outdoor facilities great. Two large swimmingpools, one of them heated. Perfectly treated beach. Hopefully they will finish soon the spa centrum - it was only one negative thing in the hotel, that the spa centrum was not ready Yet.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with pool/sea view, the view is much better

Fantastic hotel. Variety of fresh food at all times. Drinks of good quality. Ample sunbeds in very nice grounds. Waiter served drinks trolley comes round during the day which is nice if you cant be bothered to get off the very comfy loungers ! Was not happy with our ground floor room on arrival but this was quickly sorted by the very obliging Moez (thompson rep) the promenade at the front of the hotel is clean & safe to walk out at night. I dont know if its normal or if we've dropped a little unlucky with the weather but so far its been overcast until dinner time but once the sun breaks through, its VERY hot. It can also be a little chilly at night so best to bring a cardigan just incase. Have eaten at crystal restaurant which was nice but if you're a big eater you may need to top up in the buffet later ! All in all a great place and would not hesitate to return in the future. I'm sure every one that stays here will agree (unless you're extreeeemly picky)

Room Tip: Ask or a top loor room. You will almost probably get some veiw of the sea

just returned from an 11 night stay at the Riu palace Agadir, and i have to say i cannot fault this hotel, or its staff.
the rooms are very nice, and i found the bed very comfortable. bathroom facilities are excellent.
all the staff are friendly and really do go out of their way to help.
special mention to the assistant manager(raphael) was on hand all the time helping with any query.
the a la carte restaurants were both excellent in my opinion too!
Pool area was great, lovely sunbeds, and one pool was heated which was a pleasant change from other places i have been.
yes the spa/hairdressers wasnt open yet, but i wouldnt have used either anyway.
in my opinion it was without doubt the nicest hotel in Agadir, and i would return in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: level 3 rooms are good, as they are on the same floor as the reception/restaurants.

We spent 7 nights here, the second part of a twin centre holiday. We were pretty nervous about what we might find as the hotel had not been open long but we loved it here.
They are making great progress and the only things that were not ready were the hairdressers (who goes on holiday for a haircut?!), the spa (but very reasonable trips for massage available) and the games room (I have no idea what they will do in there!).

We had a 4th floor room with a sea view and a view of the mountains and it was beautiful. Decorated to a high standard, a lovely bathroom and hard beds that personally suited me down to the ground. I would have been disappointed with a pool view as the mountain view is pretty special. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard every day, the towels are soft and the air conditioning effective.

The pool is beautiful. There are two, one heated, one not. Even though it was 44 degrees when we were there, we still found the unheated pool pretty cold but it is early in the season. Most comfortable sunbeds ever and drinks service at your lounger.

Food was good, although I think there could have been more variety, particularly at lunchtime, as the selection was the same every day. However, there is plnety to choose from. Evening meals are nice but there is nowhere to eat outside in the evenings. Breakfast tables outside are at a premium but even in the time we were there, the management were responsive and were adding more tables and putting more staff on outside service. Gorgeous breakfast buffet. The speciality restaurants are mixed - the moroccan was amazing, although the 5 courses were too much and I could not move afterwards! The tagine was beautiful and the restaurant is stylish. I found the decor of the Krystal restaurant a little cold and too stylistic and the food was distinctly average - other Riu Krytal restuarants have been of a much better standard.

The staff were helpful and very responsive. Any small suggestion made, inevitably you found the management responding to it the next day.

Very little building work going on and actually, many hotels have the same level of constant maintanence ongoing. Some people were complaining about the smallest things and expect so much. This hotel is an absolute bargain - what you get for your money is superb.

Agadir is dull, dull, dull so my advice is to combine a stay here with a few nights in Marrakech where you can experience a more authentic Morocco. We walked out in the evenings and it feels very safe but there is nothin of Morocco to see there. Agadir reminds me of a down market Blackpool but all we wanted to do after a hectic time in Marrakach was to chill out in luxury and we certainly got that as the hotel is outstanding!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the mountains

Having trawled the hotels in Agadir (we had to leave a disaterous hotel after only 1 night!) and physically looked at at least 4 hotels (including Sofitel) I can honestly say that I would be shocked if anyone could find anything better. From the moment we made our begging inquiries as to their availabilty to the time we checked out, I can honestly say that I have no complaints as everything was perfect. We have been doing this annual birthday holiday for years and this is the first time a hotel has "ticked all the boxes" and met with our very high expectations - so much so ,we're already looking to book again before the end of the year. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't get into their restaurants - that wasn't the fault of the hotel as we had only 3 days left of our stay and they work on a rotating restaurant system so I would suggest you book on arrival if you can!
