My wife and I stayed at the Tikida Palmeira from the 17th of May till the 21 st , we wish we had booked for longer , ( which is unusual for us as we normally are ready to go home ) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there , we met some really nice people there , Pauline & Dave , Jane & Rich were great company .The airport transfer was only 25 mins And quite well organised on the coach, from the moment you arrive your are made to feel very welcome , just leave your cases by the door and greeted with a cocktail and then go to the restaurant or bar , and check in later , the cases are taken to your room. The rooms are very spacious (especially if you manage to get one of the ground floor corner plots, with queen size beds and wet rooms).
The pool was massive and only 1.4 metres deep at the most and it was very cold when you first got in but as soon as you got used to the temp it was fantastic, as for sun loungers there was plenty available , and several large shaded areas with sun sails and , soft furnishings , bean bags , which were excellent , we were fortunate enough to get one of these each day after we gave a generous tip to the pool staff , who since the first day always managed to help us with beds, towels are available free of charge each day from by the pool.
The staff were exceptionally polite and helpfull , with the exception of the odd one or two from behind the reception desk.
Food and drinks were very good and would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody wishing to enjoy an all inclusive break in the sun.
The only negative about Marrakech for us was the Souks and Medina experience which was a night time trip which we found a little intimidating with all the locals begging and hassling you for money and generally trying to get you spend money with them , there are some fantastic stalls which would have been great to browse through , but had they of let you in a more comfortable manor.
All in all a very nice hotel , with very nice staff and very worthy of its star rating.
