These large contemporary twin rooms with sleep up to three. They come with a ceiling fan and mini-fridge. Most have a seating area with a sofa.
These contemporary connecting rooms sleep up to three adults in each room. They come with a ceiling fan and a mini-fridge. You'll need to book two of these room types and then you'll get two rooms side by side with a lockable door across the hallway separating both these rooms from the corridor. In order to use them as connecting, the single door to the corridor should be locked and the two room doors left open. There isn't a door directly between the two rooms.

Nice and clean rooms, had a suite - very spacious. Food was varied and tasty each day. Staff very friendly, always recommending places for you to visit. Spa visit was nice, had a body scrub and was very relaxing. Plenty of sunbeds, pool a bit noisy twice a day with activities but that's okay. Quite far out from the main square but hotel provides a free bus. I'd recommend this hotel for anybody coming to Marrakech if they want to be away from the hustle and bustle.More

Enjoyable Holiday- Honest Review
I have just come back from a great 11 night stay at this hotel with my girlfriend and we loved it! I have broken the main factors down below: The hotel itself- On arrival you receive a pleasant drink and for us check in was really quick. They provide dinner for late arrivals, however we went straight to our rooms and unpacked/early night. The reception is very grand and has a more modern-Moroccan style to it. There is a lobby bar to the right of the entrance (which do a great coffee), shop just past the reception desk, entertainment room and the main big restaurant. If you go outside, you can go straight on over a bridge to the spa/indoor pool or right towards the huge pool/Italian or Moroccan restaurants and hotel rooms. Rooms- When we opened the doors to our room we were really surprised in how big the rooms are! A couple of weeks before, we emailed the hotel asking for a first floor room- which I would recommend as a few friends we met on holiday said they had frogs jump in their rooms etc on the ground floor. The rooms are spotless, beds are a big hard, there is a fridge, safe, nice balcony, separate toilet to the main bathroom, water is daily stocked (recommend to put the water straight in the fridge) and the cleaners make pretty decorations on the bed. Pool- What can I say about this pool- it is huge! Yes it is cold, however in the heat (45/46) it is so refreshing and some days it is not cold enough! After beach volleyball/table tennis (Team V! Great meeting you guys) it was so refreshing jumping in the pool. The sunbed situation was not a problem for us. We use to get up at 8 and aim for breakfast for half 8. On the way, we had our usual spot for the duration of the holiday- there were plenty of spare sunbeds. If not, then the pool guys would help you out. The only problem we had was the wasps! What do you expect though when everyone leaves sticky/sweet drinks everywhere- once finished with your drink put it away from your area to avoid wasps! Food- We found that the food was really good quality. I would definitely recommend booking the Moroccan restaurant (book at least 3 days before), however the Italian was not great. There could have been more themed nights, but overall both my girlfriend and I liked the food and there was always something we liked. Entertainment/bar- I felt sorry for the entertainers. They do work really hard, around the pool, doing activities and at night (especially as it is Ramadan), However, it wasn't very good at night. Some nights they did were ok, especially the Mr Riu (since I won it!). My advice is to drink a bit before/drinking games with cards, as the show then seems to alright! The drinks aren't very strong- but if you ask for strong at the bar or even tip them 20 DH they will literally treat you like a king or queen. We were speaking to one of the entertainers and they are on 280 DH a month- which is Â£20!!! Absolute joke. So tipping them 20 DH (just over Â£1) they are so appreciative. Trips- First of all there is a free shuttle bus, which runs from 10am- 7pm (hourly run in between). We used this a few times to go to the Medina and the new town- both great experiences. GO AT NIGHT TIME! We went during the day and we found it was a bit tedious and we got bored very easily. At night the atmosphere is much better and you can get better deals. The rooftop bars are great. In the new town go to SKYBAR! Amazing cocktails, food and the view! We booked 3 trips with Thomson as we felt they were reasonably priced and safer going through Thomson. First of all was the Fantasia night- 5 course meal (best lamb I have ever had) in a Moroccan tent with local dancers/belly dancers etc and then a show to end the night off (horse acrobats, belly dancers and soldiers of horses). Second of all we did the camel ride, which was a great experience as I had not done this before. You wear the full outfit and are out at least 1-2 hours. Last of all we did the 4x4 Atlas mountains which was an incredible experience. We went with some friends we met on the holiday which last around 8 hours. The guide 'Hassan' was great! We even went to his village- to his house and actually saw a proper Moroccan house. They made us feel very welcome- fresh bread was made and saw how they make the mint tea! The atlas mountains are beautiful, an experience I will never forget. Then to top it off the meal you have is unbelievable! Other- I would definitely recommend to go to the spa and have a massage. The price is very reasonable and it was great! Yes the wifi is not great, but you are on holiday- get over it! Me and the girlfriend managed to get on a few times to upload pictures/letting family and friends know we arrived, you just need to be patient. Also the walk from our room was not far at all. We were one of the furthest rooms away and the pool was a 2 min walk, with the main restaurant being another 2 min on top. The walk was really nice, because the gardens are beautiful. Be aware of the photographer though- very expensive and the photos we bought were not very good quality- better doing it yourself! Overall, it was a great getaway. We met some great friends through the activities we did and hopefully will stay in touch for a long time. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Morocco. If I was to travel to Morocco again I would probably go to Agadir next as there is more to do (beach/water sports etc) however this was a great experience! Travelled 22nd June- 3rd JulyMore

Loved our stay
We were three couples staying at the hotel for a week for my 40th birthday in June. We all had an amazing time the grounds were beautiful & the rooms were spotless. We all chose suites which were huge & just gave you more comfort & room to store things. The drinks were pretty good sometimes you'd get sick of certain cocktails as they were quite sweet but there is plenty of choice & you could simply choose spirits & mixers which were great. The food was of a high standard at the buffet but did get a bit repetitive after a week but that happens at any all- inclusive resort. The Al la carte restaurants were not that different from the buffet probably would not do them if we returned. Playing tennis was fun & the pools were great. They are cold but once you are in they are fine & a relief from the heat. The indoor one we had virtually to ourselves to have a proper swim in. The spa was an experience. Not quite as relaxing as I expected. When my sister & I were on the slabs there was a lot of noise & cleaning which took away from the experience & when they massaged it was pretty rough. We also got cancelled one day & appointments were limited so probably wouldn't recommend the spa. We got a taxi from the hotel into Marrakech & it was very cheap instead of having to pick shuttle times. It was perfectly safe to do. We had an amazing meal at Gastro MK if you are looking for a special meal it was unforgettable. Overall though the hotel exceeded our expectations for the price and we would return.More

Okay, but much more that they can do to improve
Riu Tikida Palmeraie is a lovely hotel and upon first impressions I thought the facilities were excellent, however when you look closer the hotel is a bit tired, particularly the rooms. In our room the bathroom was a bit tired and could have done with refurbishment. We had a ground floor bedroom and unfortunately on three occasions we came in at the end of the day to find cockroaches on the floor and one in the bathroom sink. I appreciate that it is a hot country but the hotel should do more to prevent them coming in under the doors as this is the last thing you want to see after a relaxing day on holiday. The hotel offers free wifi, however you can barely make use of this, unless its the middle of the day and everyone is out. In many ways the hotel would be better off charging and reducing the capacity so you can actually use it. Also, you ned to get up really early to 'reserve' your sun beds in the morning (around 730am and most are already taken). The hotel needs to put in place rules around reserving / provide additional sun beds so there is enough to go around all hotel guests. Some guests would put their towel down at the beginning of the day and not return until the afternoon - the hotel should do more to prevent guests from doing this. The restaurants get very busy - the Italian and Moroccan were fully booked until the last couple of days of our week holiday, probably because the number of visits is not restricted. The hotel should think about allocating number of visits to ensure everyone is able to visit them, or provide an additional restaurant. The food is okay - and there is a reasonable amount of choice, but as with all inclusive hotels you do begin to get bored of the food as it is produced for mass production. Needless to say, for the money we paid I believe this was a great value, relaxing holiday, particularly ideal for a young family. The staff also work very very hard and strive to provide the best service to guests. From the moment we arrived the standard of service was excellent. Little improves, highlighted above could make a real difference to the holiday experience, and in my view make this rating a 5 rather than a 3. I was a little disappointed with Marrakech town because I felt there wasn't that much to do, once you had seen it there wasn't much else. You also are constantly approached by the traders looking for a sale, which in many ways puts you off looking at the shops in the first place.More
