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. And whatsmore, it had a refurbishment for summer 2016.

We stayed at the Riu Tikida Beach for two weeks in early September. My 3/5 score is based on the facilities and staff only (as it should be). The hotel and the rooms are decorated to a high standard and the grounds and pool were top class. I found the majority of the waiting and bar staff to not be engaging and often ignorant and/or rude with the exception of Mohammed (pool bar) and Khadija (main bar) who were absolutely outstanding. The grounds and the rooms are well maintained and serviced and the food is above average for an all inclusive. I would strongly suggest this hotel is not aimed towards people below the age of 50. I also observed many examples of preferential treatment being given to the French through improved service including reserved tables with wine in ice buckets; which did not appear to be available to other guests. The entertainment was on average dull and specifically aimed again at the over 50s with the exception of the street dancers, belly dancer and acrobats. The animation team seemed to disappear in our second week but even previously to this the games offered were unimaginative; water aerobics, basket polo, bingo and darts. This is despite having a beach volleyball pitch, archery range, tennis court and basket ball court; I am unsure why these activities were not pushed. Moussa who works around the pool was the only staff member around the pool who engaged with British guests and was generally friendly. The music also changed from lively pop music in the first week to some sort of irritating pipe music rip offs of love songs from the 80s in the second. As mentioned previously the majority of the guests were either over 50 or acted like they were; often getting irritated if they observed people having fun. In fact a previous review refers to members of our social group as louts from London, when in fact we were a polite and respectful group having fun as many 20/30 year olds would wish to do so on holiday. This included individuals getting upset when splashed despite being inches from the edge of the pool which is farcical at best. The number of sun loungers appeared to be a major issue with many reserving beds in the early hours and we found these often left unused. Our group often made use of the beds which are partly submerged into the smaller pool, the other beds in this area despite being highly sought after were more often than not left vacant due to having towels placed on them by selfish and ignorant guests. On a number of occasions we observed guests searching for free sun loungers. We were involved with a negative altercation with a guest following a bed being reserved and being left vacant from 9am until 1pm. At that time we made a request to the pool staff to remove the towels and make use of the bed. At 3pm the couple returned and released a tirade of abuse at my partner and was unwilling to listen to reason. The Thompson rep was average; he gave some useful information at the initial brief but only visited for shorts periods and was always busy with other guests. As a result we booked our excursions through the Thompson/TUI website (which was cheaper anyway). I would recommend the 4x4 Atlas trip despite ridiculous people complaining about food and the amount the guide spoke, the dune buggies was good fun and the Marrakech one day trip was exhausting but worth it. The weather for the first four days was extremely poor due to the sea mist of which we were not aware at time of booking and we unfortunately met some people who saw very little of the sun their entire stay. We were lucky to find our remaining 10 days misty until lunch time and then sunny for the remainder with our final 3 days being completely clear. Obviously the hotel cannot be blamed for this however I felt it worth mentioning. This review may appear negative but we in fact had a great time but I do feel strongly this was due to us meeting some great friends and making our own fun. If we had been introverted this would have been a completely different holiday.More
Could Do Much Better - Must Try harder
I have reluctantly given this hotel 3 stars. The public areas are extensive & quite beautifully decorated. Our room was light, bright & nicely furnished & the beds were comfy & the air con worked. But the hotel was not cleaned properly – certain areas not at all - the private beach area being one case in point. The food was ordinary with breakfast being a particular poor offer. Drinks were very poor & the bar staff were surly. Staff, on the whole, were unwelcoming & unfriendly; unless of course you tipped significantly & regularly. Our lift was often out of order & it was the only one serving our floor. Our room keys failed on two occasions which was down to Reception Staff’s incompetence Did they apologize? Guess! We are regular Rui Hotel guests & our recommendation would be to pay a bit extra & stay at the Rui Tikida Palace. We will not be revisting Rui Tikida Beach & I don’t mean “not in the near future” I mean “never”! More
A week in Paradise
I stayed at Tikida Beach with my family for a week at the end of August. We arrived in the early hours and were greeted with mocktails and had our suitcases taken away straight away by the attentive staff. When we got to our rooms, there had been a plate of snacks laid out for us, which was nice since we were too late for dinner. The hotel itself is beautiful, decorated to a high standard throughout. There are 3 bars, one inside near the piano, one near the lunch restaurant and another near the pool, although the latter is rarely used. The swimming pool is amazing as well, and there are ample sunbeds (no need to reserve, there are plenty). The food was good, although it was a lot of the same, still tastes nice though. You have the opportunity to book a place at one of the two restaurants, the Moroccan and the fish ones. Special mention to Bachir at the Moroccan restaurant for making our night so enjoyable and offering excellent customer service. I feel like the comments about the evening entertainment are harsh - yes, it is the same singer every night, but he does mix it up a bit, and he puts in a lot of effort to get everyone up dancing. Every night there were points where the dancefloor was packed, the ambiance was electric. The animation team were truly incredible. They work long hours yet they are always full of energy, making sure they talk to all the guests so they feel welcome. There are lots of activities going on during the day - archery, darts, cookery classes, dance classes, stretching and my personal favourite Aqua Gym. Soufiane and Jalal, you both do a great job, keep it up! I would say, however, that you should ask for a room that is not above the nightclub, and also that the Wi-Fi is not the best. Be careful when going to the beach, as there are a lot of people trying to sell things to you, but if you say no they will back off. It isn't a private beach. All in all an amazing stay. I will definitely be returning.More
Just returned from 11 nights at the Tikida Beach, had a really good time away, very relaxing. Rooms were well beyond my expectations, very large rooms, really liked the separate bathroom and toilet, however the hotel really could do with reviewing their bathroom towels not very good. Loved the huge walk in shower. Would thoroughly recommend room 237 the view from this room was breathtaking. Food was okay, staff pleasant enough but I do understand the comments made by other users about staff favouring some guests more than others. The hotel itself is probably one of the most stylish hotels I have stayed in the decor and attention to detail were truly outstanding. There was plenty of seating during the day and of an evening and loads of sunbeds to choose from. Will definately go back.More

'Nice and Friendly'
This hotel is great for a break just a short 3 1/2 hr flight sits on a lovely sandy beach and its great value for money. It also has a lovely promenade that you can walk up and down and not get pestered. The food at this hotel is very good and the Moroccan dishes were lovely and the staff and the service we couldn't find fault with especially Said( waistcoat and dark rimmed glasses) and Youseff and Abelkab......(sorry couldn't quite get the name)but both did breakfast service who looked after us. The wine at lunch and dinner you didn't just get a glass but the bottle left which is unheard of in a lot of hotels.The rooms are great we had a sea view room which was lovely and the bathroom had a walkin rain shower which was great and the maid kept our room lovely,clean and tidy. This was our 2nd visit to this hotel and never found it a problem getting a sun bed until the start of our 2nd week the new guests who arrived late Monday night must of been up at the crack of dawn on Tuesday morning to set up camp on the sun beds then never use them till late afternoon.You also get a lot of sea mist if you were lucky the sun sun would break through by lunchtime otherwise cloudy and warm. The entertainment is very low key and finishes about 11pm This hotel is a great little gem and adults only as well and we would return again.More
