"The perfect escape"
A nugget of tranquility on the beach front of Agadir. The hotel offered 5 star service and beyond, catering to our every need. The food was up there with the best I have had in a hotel. Agadir is quiet at this time of year but we immersed ourselves in the culture and the locals were respectful and courteous. Great surfing spots all along coast, our teenagers surfed all day everyday.
"a week in Agadir"
Just come back from a week in Agadir. Stayed at the Tikida Palace Service Consistent outstanding. In particular the waiter in on the terrace outside to buffet restaurant was a superstar. Exactly what a good waiter ought to be. People on reception were OK, but lacking in any warmth. All other staff were cheerful and friendly, going out of their way to make your stay as good as they could. Room We had a pool view room. It was big, comfortable, good bed, excellent bathroom and shower. It was clean, and kept very well by the housekeeping staff. The room was definitely bigger than many holiday hotel rooms I have been in; it had a large comfortable terrace, and good aircon and a ceiling fan. The hotel was close to the main town right on the beach with a wide promenade between it and the superb beach where there is a roped off section with loungers etc for use of hotel guests. The hotel is built in a U around the pool area which is cleverly broken up into freeform sections with 2 open bar areas, and loads of loungers etc. All very attractive There are 2 main restaurants both of which are buffet service. One of the restaurants is in the main building, the other near the sea. The one in the main building is used for breakfast and dinner, the one by the sea used for lunch. The food is very good. I have to confess to a moderate dislike of buffet style restaurants, but I knew what I was getting before going, of their style, they are very good, but don't expect to get 5 star food by any UK definition. There are also 2/3 waiter service restaurants. The brochure said there was an Italian but it was closed for the entire week. We did eat another called Krystal. My best advice would be not to bother. That was the sentiment echoed by the 3 guests we talked to about it. My summary would be pretentious, somewhat nouvelle cuisine, and slightly odd food (e.g. a main course which was a small (tough) duck breast with half a banana and a small crescent of sauce). Enough of that. There are 2 bars in the hotel, one in the main (very large and attractive)reception area, and one just outside it where smokers can do their thing. Both very pleasant WIFI is available free in most public areas, and works fine. There is a gym on the ground floor, and massage facilities. The grounds are very well kept with grass much better than mine with good planting. It seemed to me that the hotel is pretty friendly to those who need a wheelchair to get around. Good points Location, service, comfortable rooms Points I liked least Krystal restaurant, I find buffet service somewhat tiresome all the time, in fact we went out a few times to other places to eat.(not really fair because you know what you are getting before you book)
"Overwhelming but planning return"
Great experience overall. Ticked every box we wanted. Easy booking via Thompson, food we loved (we are creatures of routine to note) salad SO fresh & variety per meal. Staff were highlights including management (post injury I got well taken care of). We ate & dined @ odd times but they adapted easily. We already planned the return before leaving which speaks volumes 🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪
"Happy honeymooners "
When you see a hotel that is deemed as 5* You always hope its true but secretly think it won't be. I'm glad to say this is definitely a 5*!!! From the staff to the food to the pool, all amazing. We are currently here on our honeymoon with my step daughter. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. The food is always a worry but it needn't have been as it's amazing and they really do cater for all. If I was to be picky I would say there should be music around the pool but that's it.
"Relaxed, friendly, efficient hotel. Great food... but no 'no-smoking' zones outside"
A very relaxed and professionally run hotel. Team here are friendly and efficient; nothing seems to be too much trouble. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean and are very quiet. There's NO storage outside of the dressing area (1.5 wardrobes, three shelves and three small drawers) so be prepared to use your case and surface areas for overflow. The main lounge is hyper-relaxing... With premium branded drinks it makes this very special. The wines are good (including the house "champagne" /blanc de blancs). The food is excellent with a lot of variety and the opportunity to try different things. The main restaurants are large and efficient and whilst they can get busy it's never been a problem. Whilst I respect the right of people to smoke, the outside dining areas in their entirety (and all the outside terraces, outdoor bar and pool areas) are given over to smokers; never a problem for them but always a problem for their unfortunate neighbours many of whom I've seen suffering in silence or having to move... not very accomodating or progressive for such a highly end hotel. 'Alfresco' eating or relaxing here is not possible... the air is rarely fresh; 'nel fumo' (in the smoke) is more applicable ...a simple allocated smoking area within each restaurant or zone is all this takes to correct as I've seen and enjoyed in many other hotels. The town is relaxed and you do not get that sense of relentless purchase pressure you feel in other north African towns. A simple "no thank you" is all it takes here. The beach is quiet, clean and well tended and sits immediately outside the grounds. Friendly security manage all access to the hotel and the resort appears more enclosed here than I've noted in other hotels along the prom'. All in all a great hotel. As someone that enjoys being/eating outdoors without being troubled by second hand smoke/vapes this would be my only reason to consider trying somewhere else.
