I have read recently where there appears to be quite a good deal of construction and excavation works going on the beach in Agadir. I am heading for Agadir in June, staying at Riu Tikida Dunas - I was wondering if this hotel is in the full view of this construction work? Is this work extensive and does anybody know if it is long term? I am looking forward to going to Morocco for the first time and I would welcome any comments about this area of Agadir. With this work going on, is the beach inaccessible or does it interfere with the beach access? Is this hotel as good as the reviews that have been submited? Are mosquitos a problem here? I always seem to attract these unwanted visitors!! Does any member have any suggestion on avoiding these attacks from these mosquitos? An intake of garlic tablets prior to departure was suggested to me - useful suggestion or not?
I'd welcome comments or suggestions.
Mosquitos are generally not a problem by the coast in Morocco. Don't worry but still as a tip: The only thing that truly works is Yeast tablets.
My brother and his family visited Riu Tikida Dunas last month, they liked the place and didn't have problems with the construction works in this south area of the beach. In august and january when I visited Agadir the reconstruction was only in the northern and central part of the tourist area. I didn't see any mosquito in Agadir during my visits, either in summer or winter.
I am going there on 4th June and have just had a call from Thomas Cook to say that because of the construction works being right outside this hotel at the time we are entitled to a refund or change of hotel. I suggest you contact your travel agent to check your options.
