of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
This was our first holiday to Morocco so weren't sure what to expect. However we were pleasantly surprised by Agadir and the Riu Tikida Beach. The hotel was really clean and all the staff were extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble (our favourite waiter was Driss - so helpful and polite!). The food at the hotel (buffet restaurant) was excellent quality and really varied. Will definitely go back again Only downside was the noise from the nightclub - very loud music started early hours and continued for quite a while. Luckily we took earplugs - they were definitely needed!
"Excellent Holiday, surpassed expectations!"
We stayed here 6th-16th February, and after reading other travelers reviews, this hotel definitely lives up to our expectations. From the day we arrived, there was a full coach of people all going to this hotel so it shows how good it is! However, this did not mean we weren't checked in quickly by the friendly reception staff. We got our wristbands on, and made it in time for lunch before it closed at 3pm. One slight hitch was that our suitcases were not in our room for our arrival after lunch, but due to how busy it was we let the porter off. One quick phone call down to the reception meant our luggage was with us shortly. One frequent comment that keeps coming up in reviews is that the hotel staff and waiters/waitresses 'favour the French guests', I don't find this comment true at all. It is down to RESPECT. If you are respectful and nice to the staff they will be the same to you. We found that all of the staff; reception, lobby, waiters/waitresses and barmen and women were all excellent, they could not do enough for you and were always polite. It is always nice to occasionally give tips if they have done a good job, to barmen for bringing drinks to you or in the evening and lunch restaurant. We would like to give a special mention to Youssef in the main evening and breakfast restaurant for always having a table ready for us, and for being polite, friendly and talkative. Also to Loubhna in the Lunchtime restaurant who is also brilliant at her job and always attentive and remembered your drinks. The barmen in the 'Yellow bar' were also excellent and very attentive. The maids also did a fantastic job and left your room spotless, cleaned towels, bedding and bath robes daily- so always nice to tip them during your stay as well. The breakfast and dinner is in one restaurant and lunch at another with views looking out to the beach and promenade. The food at all meal times was excellent, lots of choice and replenished regularly. Evening meals usually had a theme; one night being Moroccan night with all local delicacies which was lovely, there was also an oriental theme another night. There was also pizza, fries and etc. if you like that kind of thing... also burgers/pizza/ waffles and crepes available at the lunchtime snack bar. Location of the hotel is brilliant, right on the promenade next to the beach were people strolled/ biked/ hover boarded their way along. If you turn right out of the hotel and carry on walking, you'll pass bars, restaurants, shops and eventually make it to the harbour. Here you'll find the 'posh shops' and european shops such as Zara, Aldo, Stradivarius and Lacoste etc. and also some local ones. It will take you approx. 40-45 mins if you are walking at a slow pace. Or 20 dirhams in a taxi will get you back to the hotel. There is very little negatives about the hotel, mostly positive except some small little points I'll mention. During our stay of 10 days, during the first week there was one sole animation member who, still to this day, we do not know his name as he never bothered to introduce himself to any of the guests staying there. He didn't seem to want to engage with guests at all, made no announcements on the evening about entertainment and didn't announce any of the day-time activities either. He occasionally bothered to do the aqua aerobics but didn't announce it, he just blew a whistle to 'get peoples attention' and then he halfheartedly did that. He didn't seem to enjoy his job and never smiled. Then after 7 days there, 2 new members of the animation team arrived and I learnt one of their names (Momo) who does the archery, straight away! He was excellent at his job, making people laugh, going round and asking to get people involved in the activities. If only it could have been like that the previous week! Also another point to mention was that the evening entertainment, as previously mentioned in other reviews, is a little aimed at the 60+ generation...with a 'house band' and saxophonist playing most nights with ballroom and 'slow-dancing' being as lively as it got, finishing at 11pm. However one night there was a circus act, another a dance act, and another night a 'Moroccan mock wedding' with traditional dancing. There is a bar located just outside the entrance to the hotel, 'Zanzibar', it is not hotel-run and you will have to pay for your drinks- but good if you want to watch the football which we did one night. we paid 60 dirhams for a cocktail (£4.80 approx.) 45 for Flag beer or 60 dirhams for a Casablanca beer. There is also a nightclub attached to the hotel if you want something more lively. Overall, we had an excellent stay! I'd definitely recommend doing a day trip to Marrakesh whilst you are there as well- it is a must-see experience! I would definitely recommend and return!

"HOLIDAY TIKADI BEACH"
A nice hotel with well located amenities with very friendly staff found this to be a very clean complex .Food choice reasonable like most hotels a bit hectic in the evening did appear at some times there was no restaurant manager to oversee often had to wait a bit longeri in queues.. Rooms very large and cleaned well On arrival we found our room to be on the side of the building very cold when asked to move seemed a bit of a issue but moved the next day with no problem although it seems the English are given these rooms on arrival ask for even no room pool side never the less very enjoyable holiday book it.

Riu tikida beach hotel is one of the best hotels I have been to, the staffs are very friendly, food so tasty and when they mean all inclusive they do mean that, because usually when we go all inclusive we would have to pay for some of the drinks, but riu tikida beach we didn't have to pay for anything at all. You don't hand over a credit card in this hotel because all inclusive really does mean all inclusive.will definitely be coming back.
