TUI BLUE Riu Tikida Beach Hotel
Offering a relaxing adults-only environment, the TUI BLUE Riu Tikida Beach Hotel is located on the golden shores of Morocco’s Atlantic Coast in Agadir. With the beach and two very large pools on your doorstep, the enviably-situated hotel is perfect for people interested in water activities and exercise classes. If fitness isn’t your thing, indulge in the hammam, treatments, massages and more at the spa and wellness centre. At night, do some dancing at the hotel’s nightclub. The Riu Tikida’s breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet options are all-too tempting, but conveniently, you’re only fifteen minutes from Agadir’s centrally-located restaurants and shops.
Overview of Agadir, Morocco
If when you think of holidays to Morocco, long stretches of golden, sandy beaches, majestic waters and near-constant sunshine spring to mind… and you’ve only just scraped the surface of why holidaymakers flock to Agadir. Although popular Agadir is Morocco’s main coastal resort, the vibrant atmosphere simultaneously induces relaxation. Whether you’re enjoying the Atlantic Ocean spray while sampling local cuisine at a waterfront bar, taking advantage of Riu Tidika Beach Hotel’s indulgent facilities, or trying your hand at haggling at the bazaars, your experience of Agadir will be memorable.
Things to do in Agadir
As the hotel is just 1km from the centre of Agadir, you’re perfectly placed to explore the bay, as well as the city. With a choice of over 6,000 boutiques – more than you can shake a stick at – El Had Bazaar is a temptation too far, if you’re looking for retail therapy. The Marina, the city’s most modern attraction, is another great place to shop, dine and also book excursions. An unlikely survivor of the devastating earthquake of 1960, and a must-see-monument, is the 16th-century hilltop Kasbah of Agadir Oufella, which offers panoramic views of the city. A guided half-day excursion through the picturesque villages of the Moroccan countryside to get to the flowing waterfalls of Paradise Valley also comes highly recommended.
