Cocooned in lush gardens, the ClubHotel Riu Tikida Palmeraie is a quiet retreat just 15 minutes’ drive from Marrakech’s medina.
There’s a lot going on at the Riu Tikida Palmeraie. Spread across 13 acres, this complex lines up a trio of restaurants, tons of sports and activities, and a monster-sized swimming pool.
The hotel is set in the posh Palmeraie district of Marrakech, 15 minutes’ shuttle bus ride from the medina. Bedrooms are nice and big, and mix modern décor with authentic Moroccan touches.

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.

Like the weather:a mix of sunshine and clouds
As my first experience with both the country and Riu chain of hotels, I had relatively high expectations (incidentally the predominantly cloudy weather has no bearing on this review whatsoever). First impressions were good-welcoming reception area, quiet check in, helpful staff. Pros: 1.Key feature was an excellent, friendly body of staff, particularly in the restaurants, bars,and animation team. Always had time to be polite and courteous. Housekeeping was discreet and reliable. 2.Spacious room-we had a junior suite, which provided great space for our two young children to run around in. 3.Pool area and gardens-beautiful, well-maintained and with lots of space Now for the cons, which to me, cost the equivalent of two stars. 1. Our room was a good 10-15 minute walk from the main building (I'm not lazy, but have two young kids, and it was also a real pain if you left something in the room). They should offer golf cart shuttles as we have seen at other resorts, which here, was only reserved for your initial luggage transportation. 2. The two themed restaurants were obviously placed there to fulfil Thomson criteria, because they were pretty much two smaller buffet restaurants (nothing too different from the main dining area) with table cloths and limited reservations. I was expecting some 'A La Carte' and a bit more 'special' than the buffet canteen, and was left disappointed. 3. Crowded eating-particularly at lunch, where the smaller restaurant struggled to cope with the numbers. We found that it was best to take a late lunch in order to avoid queuing round the stations (incidentally, why not separate stations for separate queues?). It also seemed like a big trek to the food serving area at breakfast and dinner times in the main dining hall-very annoying to sit down then realise that you had to traipse back to get a knife and fork! Food quality was generally good, although got a little monotonous after a week-particularly in the absence of variety in the themed restaurants. 4. Two windows in our room that could be opened by our two year old, big enough for him to climb out and fall from the first floor. That was a serious issue for me. Anyhow, I hope that this helps one or two of you-these are of course my own opinions, and as a whole, Morocco is a lovely, accommodating country that in my view, is largely underrated.More

Lovely resort in Marrakech
We stayed at this resort for several days following travel through Spain and Portugal. We chose an all-inclusive resort to ensure opportunity for relaxation at the end of our vacation and this ended up being the perfect place for just that. Staff at the resort were all wonderful - The entertainment group worked really hard and always there making sure we took advatage of the multiple fun opportunities available. We met a lot of great people at the RIU that we have tried to stay in touch with since we left. The food was pretty good. It was nice to have the opportunity to try local dishes/spices which included great tagine dishes. Nice variety of things to try and staff was very accommodating with helping us get something to eat before early excursions. We are big fans of RIU and stay frequently. Was very nice to have opportunity to try this location!More

fine hotel ,frendly staff
Like many many reviews beforehand, The faults are known to Thomson and Hotel Management but they seem unwilling to act on them . Food is repepative thus becomes boring after three days, themed restaurant's is same menu but smaller intimate eating space, the phone in room didn't work, apparently its been like this for a whilst, wifi is only available in main lobby area and near by bar, so now you have 50 people trying to connect at peak times. The only saviour is trips out or the Animation team who really carry the flag for the hotel, they provide poolside activities during the day and at night one hour themed entertainment which is chessy but that makes it entertaining (they really work hard),having said all this we still enjoyed our week there, the grounds, the rooms, public areas, dining rooms even quality and quantity of food and drinks no complaints.

Not the grand luxury Resort, but price quality this is just amazing. Staff is extremely friendly. They offer big cleans rooms and delicious food (big choice and very good quality). It's not in the center, but don't think this has to be negative as it is more quite and calm. There are free shuttles to go to the center. Only negative point is that the wifi is not working. We tried to connect 20 times, but it only worked once.More
