We have just returned from our fifth annual visit to Riu Tikida Palmeraie (which has become our favourite post winter crash), and once again we were not disappointed! I cannot speak highly enough of Puablo 1 and 2 (the hotel’s general manager and assistant manager – and yes, they assure me they share the same name!), and their wonderful team. Nothing was any trouble to ensure our stay was chilled and relaxed. Thank you all for your attentive care.
The hotel itself is amazing; the tropical gardens have become established and now provide a lovely and fragrant stroll in the evenings. The rooms are so comfortable, beautifully cleaned on a daily basis and were well maintained. The restaurants cater for all tastes and always offer a varied selection of hot and cold choices with some lovely tagines (thank you for saving the recipes for me MJ!).
A couple of changes had taken place since our last visit; the public areas are now non-smoking and are therefore so much more pleasant, given that the youngsters love to share the post dinner, pre-show, dancing with MJ and the team. Also, the cats that had once prowled the poolside restaurant area were no longer there (removed for their health, given the titbits they were being fed!!) – so both were changes for the better. I am also told to add that the number of hotel golf buggies had decreased (they were great for transporting luggage – and, on more than occasion, my other half).
Marrakech is just a hotel shuttle bus journey away. The stall holders are fun and will have a bit of banter with you, a simple ‘no thank you’ will usually suffice, remember they are just trying to sell their stock in these recession hit times! Should you miss the last ride home the taxi ride is an experience you won’t forget!!
I hate to say this but you would be hard pressed to find a post winter holiday of this standard elsewhere. Enjoy!!
