We have just returned from a lovely 2 week holiday at Tikida Dunas Hotel. The hotel is ideal for families with plenty of activities to do throughout the day. My 5 year old son loved going to the Kids Club each day even though he was the only english speaking one there. Around 90% of the children attending this club are French and then the rest are German. However, all of the staff could speak good english and as my son is so outgoing he really did enjoy going there. The language barrier was not a problem for him at all. In addition, there was a mini disco each evening which he also loved going to and despite the kid's show being mostly in french and german, he couldn't wait to take part and be on the stage. For older children and adults, there was aqua aerobics every morning and darts, bingo, step aerobics, water polo and other water games daily. However, the evening entertainment for adults in our opinion wasn't that fantastic, but this did not bother us as our young son was ready for bed around 10.30pm each evening. This hotel is definitely not for people who want a quiet relaxing holiday. The hotel is situated on the sea front and is guarded to stop the locals from entering the hotel. However, all of the locals are very friendly and Agadir in general is safe. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. There is a choice of 3 different restaurants, ranging from true Moroccan style, to the Grill Restaurant and then the overall main restaurant that caters very well for the French, German, Italian and British nationals. We had a family bedroom that was cleaned daily and was to a very good standard. One thing to note is that approximately half of the guests at the hotel are french with the other 50% consist of british, german, italian and muslim families. The first week of our holiday was rather dull and overcast most mornings, however it was still very warm and by around 2pm, the sun came out and was beautiful for the rest of the day and evening. Apparently, we were told by the locals that this was typical Agadir weather for this time of year. Our second week however was much better and we had sunshine from the minute we woke up. We had no rain whatsoever. However, the locals did say that they would not recommend tourists to visit during August because it is extremely hot and humid and can be very foggy with no sun. The sandy beach runs for miles and there are plenty of lifeguards manning the beach because the waves can be quite big and strong. Whilst we were there, we did a camel trek which our son absolutely loved. We did not organise this through Thomson because if you walk along the seafront in the evening you will see the Berbers with their camels looking for business. They charge half the price of Thomson and it is very safe to go with them. We would definitely return to this hotel with our son. However, for couples looking for a quiet relaxing holiday, I would recommend the Rui Tikida Beach Hotel situated right next door to this one.
