The Riu Palace Tikida Agadir is all about the pool scene – it's a huge sea-facing number with a swim-up bar, shady daybeds, and a bank of loungers. There are four restaurants tussling for your attention at dinner, plus a theatre and a lounge where you can spend your evenings. A hotel-run kids' club keeps little ones busy during the day, and there's a spa where grown-ups can book treatments.
