"Such a relaxing place 😎"
Back here after a few years absence. It's our third time coming. The refurbishment is spot on, our room was lovely, was a bit confused when one of the staff said the air con was not on in October as other guests said they had it, however ours was not working. However with the door open and the fan on we were comfortable at night. First night we were above the club and it was a bit loud, however went to reception in the morning and were moved within half hour, so no real issue. The hotel is immaculate and the staff fantastic. I really don't understand the comments about the French getting preferential treatment. We are English and we were treated like family. It was so nice that some of the staff remembered us even though we have not been back for 5 years! Entertainment is chilled most nights, and reasonably varied, I loved the Moroccan Diversity group! Reception staff are wonderful in particular Mustapha what a patient and happy guy, great sense of humour, nothing was too much trouble. the hotel itself is beautiful and there are loads of places to sit and chill with a book and a glass of wine, coupled with fact it's now adults only you can completely relax. Rooms immaculate and table service was quick and efficient. Some English people speak to the staff like they are second class citizens and maybe that's why they don't get amazing service. The staff work very hard for very low wages and they deserve a few tips! Never waited for a drink, in particular the lady with the short hair who worked at night was amazing, as soon as our glass was empty another drink would appear. Had no issues with getting towels - there's really no need to change your towel every day! We never use the pool so can't comment but there was loads of beds free on the beach and it was peaceful and breezy, as well as the fantastic service by the two chaps who work the bar. Once again we were lucky with the weather only had one overcast day and we still caught the sun on the beach, the mornings can be hazy but they clear up fast and then it is hot and sunny, around the 30s. Still can't have an alcoholic drink on the beach which is slightly annoying but there's no harm not being able to drink in the day, made me enjoy my evening drink a bit more! Drinks were good, I only had white wine and cava but they were of a decent standard. Mum had a few vodkas and a cocktail and said they were good, nice and strong - and she is fussy! They have now got European plug sockets which I didn't realise and I'd brought the wrong adapter but I bought one down the road for a few quid. Food was still very good, and the desserts are delicious! A few mornings we got coffee that was luke warm but immediately replaced once you had said something. I can't remember all the names of the staff but they really looked after us! So pleased we came back, we had a fabulous holiday ❤️👍
"Good value, good standard, no surprises"
Arrived late and delighted to find a snack in the room and plenty of bottled water. The hotel has lovely public areas, is clean, well maintained and the rooms a generous size and well equipped lacking only in tea/coffee making facility. Good Wi-Fi throughout. The staff are attentive, polite and keen to provide a good service. The restaurant staff were a little slow at making up tables for second users but I'm being picky here. Regarding catering, food quality was good although similar each day. However, there was sufficient variety on offer to sample something different every day. Overall we were very satisfied
We returned to th Tikida Beach following the refurbishment and were amazed at the work which has been done. How they achieved so much in such a short time is amazing. The reception area is bigger and more welcoming. As before the reception desk staff are very helpful. The rooms have also been refreshed and kept spotlessly clean. The dining facilities are wonderful. The new sun beds are larger and definitely more comfortable. The only thing that hasn't changed is the wonderful staff. Everyone is helpful, friendly and efficient. I cannot praise them highly enough. Looking forward to returning in March
"Really wanted to like it but...."
As I've stayed in quite a few Riu hotels including 4 in Morocco I pretty much thought I knew what to expect..... However, this is the exception. Checked in and was given a room over the nightclub. The noise was one thing but the whole room physically vibrated with the boom boom of the music. Although I did read about these rooms before leaving I didn't get chance to email before I left to ask for a quiet room and thought what's the chances anyway' Just my luck... After a load of hassle at reception "come back in an hour" "come back in 30minutes" from the rude reception staff who told me despite there being other rooms available could only allocate me "a room of the same class I'd booked". That is, unless I wanted to pay 100dir per night to get a sea view or pool view, I'd have to wait for someone to check out before I could get a standard one. The next room overlooked a service entrance but after waiting 5hrs to get it I couldn't be bothered arguing to get another. It did seem however from speaking to other people if you'd emailed ahead you would be upgraded for free without having to endure a night of sleep deprivation and a half a day of your life wasted by being messed around by reception. Hotel is fairly modern keeping many traditional features. We didn't have a problem getting sunbeds at any time of the day. Entertainment is pretty much non existent and with no real area for it there's the same band on every night. After my run in with the room I thought I'd just chill but day 3 I ended up ill. Although the rep said only 1 other person had been ill that week it did seem numerous other people had been sick or generally "off" too. This could be nothing to do with the food standards in the hotel and just a stomach bug but having travelled and eaten everywhere and never ever been ill I ended up in my room for the next 3days and lived on bread and water the rest of the holiday...so much for all inclusive. Although I didn't miss not drinking the booze it was like paint stripper. The rep was great as is Morocco it's just a shame this hotel isn't quite up to the normally high riu standards.
"4T but no tea"
Arrived after midnight and bar closed....gasping for a cuppa. Devastated to find no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Has assumed having stayed at Riu Tikida Palace it was standard! The room was well appointed and the shower was superb. Had a balcony, but a massive tree blocked out the sun...should have gone for a terrace. As ever the beach towel bagging of sun beds was rife. Breakfast was chaotic due to shortage of basics like teaspoons, teapots, hot milk...if you asked for coffee it was often a half filled thermos! Hot breakfast was good, even bacon and sausages. Pool area had plenty of sun beds and concrete twin mattress areas. But staff not very helpful when trying to move parasols or beds. Towels were in short supply. There was some waiter service, but getting any drink was entailed going to the bar! The lunch restaurant was very good, fantastic views of the beach and sea and good table service for drinks and clearing. The bar and reception area was spacious and the waiter service was good. The breakfast area was used for evening meals and drinks were quickly dispensed. Entertainment was average, whirling dervish was spectacular. There is a night club under the hotel, may have been intrusive if you had rooms above. There were lots of stairs to the rooms as hotel spread over 5 floors. There were lifts, but they were few and far between and took a maximum of four. Room cleaning was excellent and the air conditioning was adequate...but we slept with patio door open and the fan rotating as air conditioning was noisy. There were towelling bath robes provided. The spa are had a heated pool, but you had to pay extra...a pity as it was an Adults only hotel and should have been included in the package. The seafood restaurant experience was very disappointing, open three nights a week so you had to book. Did not bother with Moroccan restaurants as other guests said it was not up to much. Would I go again, probably not, back to the Riu Tikida Palace.
