My wife & I have just returned from a two centre holiday with four nights in Marrakech and seven nights in Agadir. Having spent seven nights in the Hotel Riu Palace Tikida Agadir we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel it certainly lives up to its 5 star rating and although we had no need, I am confident that if something is not to your liking then a quiet word at reception will put it right.
The location right on the sea front is ideal, the bedrooms are very spacious; there is a very good choice of food and something to suit everyone’s tastes and the spacious lounge and bar were very relaxing with comfortable seating. We did not use the pool bar but it appeared to be very popular and the pools and grounds were beautifully kept. It may not be the cheapest hotel in Agadir but my aging experience has proved to me that if you can afford to pay a little bit more then you get a lot more and this hotel is an excellent example of that maxim.
Although the staff may not appreciate this comment we found it was unnecessary to tip, the service we received from everyone was exemplary. But I do appreciate that tipping is very much a personal decision.
We walked along the promenade to the new marina and had a coffee watching the world go by. The Souk is well worth a visit which sells almost everything even if you are “Souked up” after having been to the Souks in Marrakech but it is closed on Mondays. Ask at reception before you take the 30 minute walk to it. We also hired a taxi for a couple of hours and went to the Kasbah and the Fishing Port followed by a visit to photograph a mosque (non-Muslims are not allowed to enter). We thought it was worth the 250 Dirhams and it gave us another insight into Morocco and Agadir and an area which many tourists will never see!!!
