This authentic Moroccan hotel has a great position right on the beach, just 5-minutes’ drive from Agadir’s centre.
This whitewashed, traditional-style hotel has views over the Atlantic. It’s also got its own stretch of private beach, complete with 4-poster cabanas that are the ideal spot for a massage.
Inside, the décor is best described as modern Moroccan – think ornate tiles and contemporary furnishings. The hotel’s got a handy spot, too – it’s just a 5-minute drive from the centre of Agadir.

Great Staff, Great Room
We visited Agadir in September to celebrate our anniversary; having read the reviews we were a bit nervous, however, we needed have been. We Emailed ahead to the hotel (as per the trip advisor review tips) to request a quiet room as it was a special occasion. Upon arriving we were surprised and very pleased to discover weâd be given one of the nicest rooms in the hotel â complete with a balcony, pool and sea view, and a complementary bottle of wine. The hospitalities didnât stop there, as the cleaners would often leave rose petals in our room and (upon request) a bottle of champagne was left in our room on the evening of our anniversary meal! Indeed, in general we found the staff were very helpful and couldnât do enough to help you. Unfortunately, I did get quite ill during the holiday. However, Iâm not entirely sure I can attribute this to the hotel, it could have easily been something I ate/drank elsewhere (indeed, I think itâs a general danger when travelling to Morocco). Although this dampened my holiday, Leanne (our Thompson Rep) helped greatly, she arranged for a Doctor to be called out who prescribed antibiotics etc. That eventually did the trick. I also believe she helped guests who were less happy with their hotel rooms. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would say not to let the negative reviews put you off too much.More

Nice hotel with amazing staff
Just got back from a weeks holiday at the riu tikida beach... Overall it was a really lovely holiday. The only thing that let us down was Thomson as we had hassle on the way out, then our flight was cancelled on way home. They put us in the amidil beach hotel (next door) for the one night which is also 4star but compared to tikida beach it should have been 1star!! The staff here are sooo friendly and couldn't do enough for you! They bring wine by the bottle and champagne every morning at breakfast. There's a wide selection of food and also 2 separate restaurants to eat at. The room were spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel. The French can become a pain and are very rude, but if you stand your ground, they tend to back off. The animation team were excellent! Mido was my favourite... He's a good dancer and does the best accents! The wifi can be a bit slow but then who comes on holiday to sit on their phone the entire time? The evening entertainment wasn't great but we made friends with a few people who we had a laugh with. Overall I thought this hotel was lovely and would definitely come back again!More
Good & Bad
Just returned from a week at this hotel having stayed @ one or two Riu's before. I have to say that this hotel falls short of the standards you come to expect at a Riu hotel. It is in desperate need of an update in parts. Good Points: Lovely pool area with 2 pool bars and a lovely terrace area to have lunch which was usually very nice. Clean spacious room with maid service daily. Wifi in reception & bar. Lovely staff. Food at lunchtime very good with lots of choice. Animation team really lovely. Bad Points: Balcony very shabby & not cleaned regularly. Room a bit dated. No drinks in the fridge in the room. The large "bed" type sunbeds very shabby & dirty...we used the traditional ones all week. Breakfast limited if you like bacon & sausage. Plenty of everything else but would have liked the option. The drinks at the pool bar like coke/diet coke always flat. Evening meals poor for choice. We ended up having to eat out on 1 night as we were sick of the food. Entertainment at night really poor & only1 bar area to sit in. All in all we were glad we had only booked a week.More
Make your own mind up!
My husband and I have just returned from a week in Agadir at the Tikida Beach hotel. I read the reviews before going as was a little concerned, however we had a very nice week. The rooms are tired and could do with a revamp and the bathrooms need better shower attachments and not baths, but they were spotlessly clean. The food was good, there was plenty of choice and something for everyone, I am a vegetarian but managed to find plenty to choose from. The evening entertainment was not great but we meet some lovely people and had a good laugh. If you want to be entertained every night you may need to go out of the hotel to find it. The staff were all friendly, tipping them on arrival will definitely get you preferential treatment, however if you choose not to tip they are still nice. Pool not heated so a little to cold for me which was a shame. The animation team were exceptional very friendly and polite, especially Mido. The Thompson rep gave us some incorrect information about courtesy room so make sure ask the receptionist on the day of checkout and book a slot. Also be prepared for a long wait and miserable assistance at the airport all they are worried about is getting extra money for luggage, make sure you are under your weight! We booked this last minute and we were very happy with the hotel and the holiday overall, if you have booked enjoy your stay and don't be put off as I was by the negative comments.More

Just back from 2 weeks in this hotel. We were put in a bedroom on floor 2 but the noise from the in house singer and the night club echo'd up the stair wells and sleep was impossible until 2 or 3 am. After a few days when it got no better we asked about a move, the rep said the hotel knew they should not put 'their' customers in these rooms for that very reason. We were moved to another room which we were told was an upgrade to a 'pool view', yes you could see a few metres of water through the numerous trees - but it was quiet! There were a lot of French visitors and I have nothing against the French, in fact some of were very chatty and entertaining. It was the attitude of the staff. Kisses left, right and centre and the French customers were greeted warmly and given great service. The staff seemed more reserved with the English visitors and more or less left them to their own devises other than the duties they had to carry out. It is a large, impersonal hotel. The food is varied and good but apart from the coffee and the soup everything that should have been hot, was not! Food hygiene??? They ran out of teaspoons, teapots, coffee cups etc regularly. I may return to Morocco but not to this hotel. The chambermaid was wonderful and kissed me twice on each cheek, as well as keeping the room spotless. The hotel was clean and quite grand, the acts who came in were good but the singer who performed most nights was out of tune and always sent us off to our room to read! Not my best holiday.More
