ClubHotel Riu Tikida Dunas
Travel Blogs from Agadir
On Tuesday morning after stocking up on supplies at a big supermarket we headed north along the Atlantic Coast. A short distance along and we turned inland to find Paradise Valley – an oasis made famous in the 1970s by Jimi Hendrix and then by all of the hippies who followed in his footsteps. The road was a narrow one and wound through the mountains with small palm groves following the river. We got there to find ...
... in ours. Then we went just to the south of Tafraoute to a cluster of huge, strangely shaped rocks known as Napoleon’s Hat.
We then headed back towards the coast and passed through the town of Tiznit known for its silver making. We were shown a workshop full of amazing silverware and jewellery. Then we headed back east into the little Sahara where we went for lunch at the traditional house we were to stay at that ...
... sea and inflated an airplane life jacket. We're having to check out at 11 am tomorrow and our taxi doesn't leave until 5:45 so we'll have to sort something out. Planning to stop off in A&E on the way home to get Sarah's shoulder checked out. Hopefully it's quiet at 4am on a Friday ...
Dan and I hit the dirt roads south of Agadir today and had a great time pretending we were in the Dakar rally. The carts were limited but we still hit ~30 mph across the countryside. (and some of that wasn't sideways). Wish they could have gone faster though. Fishing tomorrow. Really trying to pack it in now as we leave Thursday ...
so I just spent an hour an a half writing up the trip to Marrakech and Essaouira and lost it when I wen to load the photos...
Otherwise we chilled in the sea and pool.
Dan and I have a bit of fun planned tomorrow with some dune buggying (and I'm driving) :o)
And today we booked the fishing trip for Wednesday. 5 hours at sea on the last day of Ramadan, boy I bet we'll be popular.

Historical Traveler Reviews ClubHotel Riu Tikida Dunas Agadir
Vom Hotel begeistert
Wir waren gerade 7 Nächte im Tikida Dunas in Agadir und wir hatten einen fabelhaften Urlaub. Das Hotel ist exzellent und das Personal, von den Kellnern im Restaurant bis zum Animationsteam, war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Rezeption hat uns bei unserer Ankunft sehr freundlich empfangen. Das Zimmer war sauber und man hatte eine tolle Aussicht auf den Strand und das Meer. Das Essen war exzellent, mit reichlich Auswahl und für jeden Geschmack. Nur Schinken und Speck gab es nicht. Insgesamt ein großartiger Urlaub bei herrlichem Wetter und ich kann das Hotel nur jedem empfehlen.
Riu Tikida Danus bekommt von mir 10 von 10 möglichen Punkten! Mein Partner und ich übernachteten vorher für eine Woche in einem anderen Hotel und suchten uns dann ein neues, weil es unsere Erwartungen nicht erfüllt hatten. Als wir dann im Riu tikida Danus waren, konnten wir gar nicht glauben wie sauber, groß und einfach nur wunderbar es war! Es hat so um die 4 Pools (1 drinnen) und ein Meerwasserpool. Sie sind riesig und recht seicht, die tiefste Stelle war in der Mitte und ging mir so bis zum Kinn. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hat auch ganz gut Englisch gesprochen. Das Essen war spitze mit reichlich Auswahl und man konnte auch immer etwas mitnehmen!! Die Aussicht vom Balkon war spektakulär. Man kann die Seen sehen, den privaten Strand oder die Swimmingpools. Was nicht so toll war (und das ist nur eine kleine Sache), es wurde in unserem Zimmer immer der selbe Film gezeigt. Ich bin nicht gerade der größte Fan von Hugh Grant, aber wenn er dann auch noch die ganze Zeit auf dem Bildschirm zu sehen ist...Aber insgesamt ist dieses Hotel ein Palast und ich kann es jedem nur empfehlen, der einen entspannenden Urlaub verbringen möchte.
The place was absolutely fantastic and the staff of the hotel were amazing except steer clear of the head waiter as he is a bit of a jobsworth. The first night we got there we just sat down but apparently we were supposed to be guided to our table!! This did not go down well. The food was amazing but did get poorly towards the end of the holiday because I tried a bit of everything!! The setting was beautiful if you want a relaxing holiday but if you like exploring this holiday is not for you. I would definately go back. Met two amazing people there who kept us gossiping and drinking to early hours of the morning thanks shaun and sue. If you still have my email address get in touch as I have lost your phone number!! Anyway the staff could not do enough for you they were excellent and if you tip them at the start of the stay you will never have to queue at the bar again. The place was immaculate and I would recommend it to people with kids as well as the entertainment team were always putting things on for the kids to do. Top hotel and location.
Rather apprehensively, we booked Morocco for our main holiday this year, not quite sure what to expect and the Riu Tikida Dunas hotel, which we expected to be good having stayed in another Riu previously. Morocco doesn't seem to have been hit by the English yet, as there were very few at the hotel, which seemed to be mainly filled with French people. Unfortunately, this did mean that our 12 year old daughter didnt seem to find anyone her age to keep her company.
If you have booked a holiday in Morocco at the Riu Tikida Dunas then you won't be disappointed.
GREAT FOR FAMILIES
We had a family Easter break here, the staff we lovely, the food was good and the kids were happy to go to the kids club or hang around the pool (which is very shallow so good for the very young one's). The whole hotel was very clean and as it was all inclusive you didn't have to worry about having enough cash on you. We would all go back.
We had two weeks here in February, just caught the start of good weather in the second week after a few days of dismal stuff. I agree with previous reviews,can't fault this hotel in any way. The landscaped gardens and low rise Andalusian-style architecture are fantastic and, although the water in the lagoon-style pools was too cold for all but the hardy it will be fantastic when the sun hots up.
We have just returned from a week in this hotel and what a fantastic time we had! This hotel has everything you could possibly need for a fantastic holiday. The staff could not have been any friendlier and helpful. We were treated like royalty from start to finish. The animation team were lovely and always have things going on during the days for those of you who get bored just laying in the sun. The hotel is stunning with good views both over the sea and over the pond/gardens. The food was perfect, something for everyone! Dishes for everyones taste...fish, pizza, chicken, salad....and for the more adventourous...calfs brain and squid!!!!
Loved this hotel
We have just returned from 7 nights at the Tikida Dunas in Agadir and had a fabulous time. The hotel is excellent and all the staff from the restuarant to the animation team are extremely friendly and helful. The reception gave us a great welcome on our arrival. The room was clean and had a great view over the beach & sea.
The food was excellent with a wide choice to cover every taste. Only exception was there was no bacon or ham.
All in all, we had a great holiday with lovely weather and would certainly recomend it to anyone.
