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.

We have just returned from here having spent a very relaxing week just lazing around the pool , which was very cold , the bar staff were amazing and would have our coffee on the go before even getting to the bar and the next would be waiting for us before we drank the first one . The food was very good was always something nice to eat at every meal !! Room was large plenty of space for clothes nice comfortable chairs on the balcony none of the nasty cheap plastic chairs like most hotels , started to get very full on our last day due to the kids holiday starting and nothing for the kids to do . The entertainment staff were very friendly always took the time to speak and ask how your day was , all in all was a lovely hotel well worth a visit More
After deciding to take my mum away for a relaxing Christmas and a significant amount of research, I settled on a week at the Riu Tikida Palmeraie as neither or us had visited Marrakesh before. I couldn't be happier with the decision as the hotel was stunning, with well maintained grounds. The food was superb and the staff faultless!! We will definitely be looking to return in 2015 as nothing was too much trouble for anyone. The pool bar staff and the animation team couldn't have looked after us better during the day and this service was replicated each evening by the restaurant and bar staff!More
We stayed here from the 9th of May, for two weeks, we had an amazing time here, the hotel is lovely, but, does have its faults... I'll go through the good stuff first... Very clean, infact, probably the tidiest hotel I've ever stayed in, rooms are a little dark, but let's face it, you don't spend two weeks locked away in your room. Entertainment, a little cheesy, entertainment is aimed towards families, yet not many families stay there (not while we were there anyway) Food, spot on, yes, it can be repetitive if you pile your plate high over the first few days, I highly recommend the tagines, amazing, the best bit of advice I can give, is to book into the Moroccan restaurant as many times as you can, it has better food and a quieter more relaxed atmosphere. Drinks, cannot fault the drinks, beer is a little gassy but it's 5.2% so you can take your time with it and still get to that 'holiday good place' cocktails were good, but a little weak, the mojito's are made fresh, not pre bottled like the others, so the barman will add extra rum if you give him a wink... Service, everyone from the reception team, bar staff, restaurant staff and cleaners all do an amazing job, they really do make your stay enjoyable and will always go the extra mile for you. Please tip them before you leave. Pools and public areas, the pool is huge, warm enough to stay in for a good while, reception and bars are very clean and the relaxing music throughout the public areas really does add to the magic. Ok, so some of the bad stuff, Restaurant, I've stayed at a few all inclusives before and must say, this hotel is the worst at meal times for people pushing and shoving to get to the food, infact, me and my partner ended up going for food 10 minutes before the restaurants closed to avoid the chaos, I really do hope the hotel puts a barrier between the queue and the restaurant, it really is bad. Public toilets, cockroach heaven, the nicest loo's you could ever dream to do your business in, until a cockroach jumps up you, this happened to several guests while we were there. Wifi, this seems to pop up a lot on trip advisor, all I'll say is, this is not the hotels fault, the connection is 52mps (which is higher/faster than most Brits have back home) too many people are connected, using FaceTime etc... My advice, when the Italian open for lunch (12:30) use the Internet then, when the whole population of the hotel scrambles for food, then go for lunch at (3:20) 10 mins before the restaurant closes. In summary, I would recommend this hotel as a couples holiday, I don't feel it's a family hotel nor a place for groups of young adults... Please remember, you go to Marrakech to see Marrakech, to spend a week or two in this hotel, sunbathing would be a waste, get out there and explore this amazing city, we did the atlas 4x4 trip and the gardens tour and caleche by night, I would recommend all.

Relaxing short stay break!
This hotel is lovely. Approx 30 minutes taxi ride from the airport, which in itself is an experience! We were upgraded to a Suite room, which if you haven't booked one, you need to! It was absolutely beautiful. It over looked the pool and had a bright sunny balcony. The room was fantastic, we never went hungry! The weather was unbelievably hot! So we appreciated the decent sun beds and large day beds. Drinks are of a very good quality, and the evening entertainment was very good. There was a young man who done an acoustic session on our last night who was absolutely fantastic! The courtesy coach trip the hotel provides to go to the Jema el'fna square was very efficient! However if we came back we would probably just stay at the hotel. We found the square quite intimidating, forceful and they harassed the living daylights out of us. Not the kind of square we was thinking. But none the less, we couldn't go to Marrakech without visiting it. This is suited to couples, or friends searching for the sun and cocktails!!More

Great relaxing retreat
Ideal hotel for a relaxing holiday, very friendly staff and always a great selection of choice at the buffet restaurants. 10 friends used the hotel as a base for a golfing holiday, but we still made use of all the facilities, and would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone. We will be back again next year for a repeat performance.More
