“Excellent and beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

I cannot fault this hotel; the best I have been so far; excellent food, attention, Excellent friendly staff, eager to please and attentive to any of your requirements.
Rooms are spacious and very nice- a bit far from the centre of town, but there is a shuttle which runs reveral times a day which takes you there and brings you back.
Entertainment was not too good, but there is every effort to vary it every day.
If I was coming back to Marrakech, no doubt I will come back to this one
Superb!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good in my opinion

We booked this hotel last minute and got a great deal. The hotel itself is just outside the city of Marrakech but is a pleasant walk or an easy 5 minute taxu ride. Tikida Gardens provide a shuttle bus several times a day which is free. The room was spotless, had a balcony and was quiet and nicely situated overlooking gardens full of orange trees. The food was buffet as expected but was very high standard compared to other All Inclusive hotels we have tried. There was also a Moroccan restaurant which we could book as many times as we wanted at no extra cost, and again the food was excellent and the service very warm and friendly. The Entertainment Team tried very hard to offer a variety of activities, and never pushed anyone to participate if they didn't want. The Hotel staff were wonderful, especially Hanane, who was cheerful and always singing while she worked! There was free Internet in the room which was a real plus. Beds were very comfortable.

On the negative side, the only English Channel on TV was BBC World News, (this did not bother us) and there was no tea and coffee making in the room. However, tea and coffee was always available in one bar or another and bottled water available from reception 24/7.

Would definitely recommend this hotel and feel it is of a very high standard.

We booked a week here after seeing it advertised in the travel agent's window at a reduced price and quite enjoyed our stay at the Tikida Garden. The gardens of this hotel are indeed a pleasure to see and very well maintained by an army of workers. All the staff are friendly and always willing to please. The animation team work very hard and encourage people to mix and take part in various activities. OK, the evening entertainment isn't of West End standards but it is a good way of passing an hour after the evening meal. On the subject of food - it is very good although perhaps a little repetitious. The drinks are fine and plentiful, with our wine glass being topped up without asking at dinner. If you like to take an after dinner drink in the hotel bar and are a reformed or anti smoker - beware. Smoking is still allowed (and encouraged) in public areas.

The hotel is a quite a way from the centre but there is a hotel shuttle bus that runs at set times through the day. We took the bus in on one occasion but caught a taxi back. Real old banger, wouldn't be allowed on the road here, but cheap as long as you haggle. Didn't really enjoy our visit to the market - but many do so definitely try it.

We did take the opportunity to walk around the area near the hotel a lot of small workshops nearby. if you want to know what things were like before the Health and Safety at Work Act came into being - just take a stroll along the main road.

So: nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms, good food and pleasant surroundings but a week was quite long enough.

on arrival we were greeted with a cocktail, check in ran smooth and staff could'nt do enough for you. we had a fantastic time and all the staff made my 50th birthday very special with champaine and a birthday cake. so much choice on food with breakfast lunch and dinner with 7 to 10 different stations maybe more in both restaurants, so clean something for everyone (unless you want battered fish and chips if so i surgest you stay at home ) we was very lucky and had some warm weather but was very cold from around 5.30pm to 9.30 am as soon as the sun came out so the temp went up to a comfortable 70-76. my tip for this trip would be take a travel kettle as there isnt one in the room, cups, milk, teabags and sugar, you can get from the restaurant, good trips to go on were half days History of marrakech, and the ouchra valley unless you are into botany dont bother with eyves saint laurant gardens all in all we could not fault this hotel or the staff would go back right now given the chance, but looking forward to next year

We have just arrived back from a week at the Tikida Garden Hotel we can't reccommend this hotel enough. We were greeted with a cocktail and made to feel at home. This hotel is top class and the staff are second to none especially the animation team,Samir Salim Bob and Hasna they made our holiday special, their commitment and enthusiasum was fantastic. So if you are looking for spotless accomodation fab food and fantastic entertainment this is the place to go. This hotel should be awarded the best hotel award,can't wait to go back. thank you for a fantastic week.

This hotel, just a short flight from UK, is just a few minutes drive from the centre of Marrakesh, the rooms are very clean and spacious, and the hotel pool is very child friendly, with its shore like slope. Plenty of sunbeds and great staff. Food a little repetitive at times, but if you use the free shuttle bus to the town centre, there are plenty of places to experience local and European food. with the high prices now to stay in a Riyadh this is a fabulous alternative. This is almost RIU Caribbean class, for those who know they chain!

Marrakesh is so worth visiting, with its old Medina and souks and its very European quarter, which reminds you of the south of France. There is a tour bus where the hotel bus drops you off which you can use to get your bearings, a few pounds for 24 hour hop on and off, suggest you do the full circuit then decide where you want to get off..

Room Tip: all uniform and easy access, although disabled should request ground floor room,

We booked a last minute 4 night trip and were very lucky to find ourselves to be staying in such a place. We were greeted well with cocktails and a stunning mosaic centerpiece in the lobby.
Our room had a lovely view of the gardens and the pool and the shower in the room was brilliant. Our bed was massive too!
The food was far better than some of the reviews I had read on here. The head chef was always present and seemed genuinely enthusiastic about his food- wanting to tell you (with broken english) about what each thing was and would serve it to you even though it was a self service buffet. The waiting staff too were always very attentive and friendly - our drinks would never empty! The manager was always present too and talked to many guests about their stay.
The entertainment brought in was brilliant, especially the african drummers who were very talented and included fire breathing and stilt dancing. By our last night the hotel entertainment team's night paled in comparison If they had more to work with I believe it would make it far better but you could see they worked hard to get everyone up and laughing.
We used the first choice excursions on our stay and loved that we packed in as much into our holiday as we could. We would both visit Marrakech and stay at Tikida Gardens again!

Room Tip: Get your booking company to request a pool view room
