There’s a lot going on at the Riu Tikida Palmeraie. Set in 13 acres, this complex has a huge list of sports and entertainment to enjoy. That means pretty much everything, from tennis and the massive pool, to daytime and evening entertainment for young and old alike. Or for that little extra treat, there’s also a top-draw wellness centre for anyone wanting to hit the pause button. Cue all sorts of treatments, facials and muscle-melting massages. The food’s good too, and includes the usual buffet set-up, as well as Moroccan and Italian joints.

Good Hotel but very big.
There;s no doubt this is very nice hotel with excellent facilities. The management have it running like a well oiled machine and the staff work hard to keep everything immaculate. The food is good with plenty of variety and there are two specialist restaurants to try. We stayed for a week and enjoyed glorious weather and had a good time. However, there is no getting away from the fact that this is a very big hotel. When it is full the sun lounge decks around the huge pool are absolutely packed and the background noise in the bustling restaurant is deafening (no romantic meals to be had here). The all inclusive bar was generally good and we found the wine quite palatable but the cocktails are pretty poor. The hotel is about 25 minutes, by free shuttle bus, from the old town but there is nothing to see or do in the area around the hotel itself, much of it is a waste-land. The hotel gardens are beautifully kept though. We weren't impressed by the animation team; if you have children they might be an advantage but we just found them a bit annoying and the boys have a habit of hogging the gym equipment after 5pm (wagging their finger at you if you dare to change the settings on anything). The Thomson tours we went on were well organised and seemed to be good value. Car hire is probably a bad idea in Marrakech so we found organised tours and the shuttle bus the best way to get around. The taxis were reasonable too and there is so much to see outside the hotel.More

Happy times in the sun
We have just returned from a 7 night stay with our 3 children. We stayed here after 3 nights in a riad in the Medina. We booked directly with the hotel rather than through a tour operator. Please note that when booking your rooms that rooms aren't interconnecting and that you need to request the rooms with the corridor which adjoins the rooms as you can lock the outer door securely and keep an eye on your children. The pool was fabulous, the food was of a very high standard. Staff were welcoming, friendly and happy. We hailed taxis outside to go into town most of the time, but there is a free shuttle bus, for which you are required to reserve your seats. My daughter went to the kids' club a couple of times and loved it. The other children were happy to play in/around the pool. A wonderful trip!More

Lovely place, great staff, food and accommodation.
Just got back from a lovely week in this holiday, would recommend the Marrakech experience with Thomson, was good value, great way to see the area and then go back on shuttle bus for a better look around. It' s well worth upgrading to junior suit and our room was the best we've had so far. Food was always fresh, hot and clean and tidy. The only two things we didn't think was great was the entertainment, team tried but wasn't as good as other hotels we have been to. Second was the pool was very cold, saying that it didn't stop us or anyone else getting in for a swim, you just had to take the plunge!More

Cant wait to return
we have just returned 22rd april from a weeks stay. we had a great time I cant rate it high enough, the staff cant do enough to ensure your stay is memerable. the food and drink was excellent not your usual watered down rubbish the food was excellent all meals had loads of choices and catered for all tastes. The staff were all friendly polite and respectful. The room was large clean and tidy and cleaned every day. The animation team are busy all day putting on different events and entertaining the children right up to 2100 where they dance and play. we will definitely be going back and honestly we cant fault this hotel, the only down point was the usual sun beds being reserved at the crack of dawn, against the hotels policy, but this happens in all the hotels we have stayed inMore

Great value, does what it says on the tin.
Great base for a few days. We spent 3 nights here (2 adults & 2 pre-teens). Not sure if I could stay longer unless I just used it as a base. Great value, good selection of food and activities. Close to the old town. Staff were all really friendly, very enthusiastic entertainment team. Cocktails a let down but the Moroccan red wine went down well! Massive bed in the suite we were upgraded to, very comfy.More
