Xanadu Resort Hotel
Travel Blogs from Belek
Antalya is the tourist capital of Turkey with a population of approximately 1.3 million people in the winter which blows out to about 7 millions in the summer. This seaside city is on the mediterranean coast with many bars and restaurants overlooking the water. We stayed at the Argos Hotel and were lucky enough to get a poolside room. For lunch we snacked in a cafe down umbrella lane ...
It was a slow day today. Rhonda headed over to the archeological museum and I took it easy. Did some wandering around the cobbled backstreets and found a few trinkets to buy. And lots of good photo opportunities. When she returned we did more wandering. Found some tiles we will have framed for our TV/travel room. Rhonda got sucked into getting her shoes shined, quickly followed by me! Had a relaxing drink ...
... PM, so we had to go to dinner early enough to make sure we were done by then. Mert took us to a kebab place, which was fun. We had to sit upstairs, as they were preparing the downstairs tables for the rush of Turks who would be arriving as soon as the fast was over. They brought us triangular shaped bread like a lavash, with plates of spicy grilled onions, cold onions with some spice on it, ...
... was absolutely stunning and it got us out of the town for the day. The trip continued in a similar fashion with a bit of rafting and then waiting for 60 people to line up for a photo opportunity for what ever reason.It took 3 hours to travel the 12 km, of which, 40 minutes was rafting. However, the rafting portion was really fun and we were allowed jump of the raft and swim through calmer parts of the river. This place would be perfect ...
... that seemed to stare me down when I left the hostel wearing shorts they sure as hell didn't mind me in just a peshtemal (a towel) lying on a hot stone. After our skin was sweaty and soft we were taken through and 'peeled' then washed down and doused in warm water, once we were wrapped up in fresh peshtemals like a child after bath time we were lead upstairs had fresh fruit and cay and finished off with a oil massage. Sooooo ready for the day ahead, and totally ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Xanadu Resort Hotel Belek
Paradise on earth
my wife and i had the best two weeks ever, every single aspect of this resort is perfect, booking for next year already
fantastic hotel, fantastic food, friendly I cannot reccommend this hotel more highly in fact we are due to return aug 2005, even our children aged 18 and 16 cannot wait to return, excellent value for money, everything you could possibly want is included in the price
My partner and I stayed at the Xanadu in May 05, We didnt know what to expect. We arrived at night so we didnt see much of the hotel on arrival, however upon arrival we were greeted with a welcom champagne drink and our bags were taken immediately!
Best hotel in turkey
we stayed at xanadu in May this year by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in so much to do or not the choice is yours,your not constantly harrassed to try to join in.The restaurants were fab 1st class service.None of the staff linger for a tip which makes a refreshing change.Do a couple of trips especially to the market.all in all one of the best holidays we've been on.
Amazing place loved it
We visit the hotel at the end of April beginning May, We were a party of 4, myself 30yrs, partner 26yrs and my mum and dad both 59/60yrs, all of us coming from a travel industry background (And I am not easy to please) However there was something for all of us. Everything ws PERFECT, the staff, the service, the food, the choice, the rooms, the pools, the list goes on. Really couldn't fault it in anyway YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Amazing hotel with everything you could evey ask for, if you want luxury and pamapering then this is definatly the place for. The only place we have all visited and have all said we will return next year. Well done Xanadu!!! If you have any questions i'd be happy to give you an honest answer
Everything you would expect and more.
After a bad experience last year, decided to use review board for a one week stress buster. You will not be disappointed with this hotel.
Cannot add much to previous contributors comments, this must be one of the best hotels in Turkey and exceeded our expectations.
We will be returning in September and I am sure again next year as many of the guests we spoke to do. Well done Xanadu for a wonderful stay.
Simply the best
We have been three times and can't wait to get back again in May this year. The hotel is beautiful and maintained to very high standard. The rooms (especially the bungalow rooms in the grounds) are spacious, quiet, well equipped and spotless. The staff are charming and the service is second to none. The pools and beach are wonderful and each have their own bars. The sunbeds with canopies are brilliant, no fighting for shade, and the nightly entertainment is truly of a professional quality in the outdoor amphitheatre. Best hotel we've ever stayed in, can't fault them on anything. Hope it never changes.
The best all inclusive resort
Is the best all inclusive resorts I have ever seen. I stayed there two times, and i will return. It is the best service.
Best massage ( it is FREE 30 min/day/pers) Tha's way I say that is the most complete all inclusive.
The room is cleaned 2 times/day.
They never ask tips.
Everythig is 5*: golf, tennis, footbal, pool, meeting rooms, entertaiment.
It is the best beach in Antalia. The beach is the pearl of Antalia.
Excelent, and the price is not so big.
Where your dreams come true
My husband and I are travellling a lot for example to the Mayan Riviera (Mexico), Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Spain, Canary Island, Goa (India) and so long but this is by far the best 5 star hotel we have been to.
This hotel is the best all inclusive hotel at the turkish riviera. The food, the beverages (top alcohol), the service and the ambiance are out of this world, even the massage and the use of the internet (20 minutes per person a day) is included in the price.
The hotel is built in a greece/turkish style very nice.
My husband and I have been there already the forth time and will go again in sepember 2005.
It's one of the most expensive hotels there but it's still a great value for the money if you see what you get for it.
Well done Xanadu !!
We loved this hotel. The high standards, attentive service and food were excellent! The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a good holiday. The entertainment team were marvellous, I was amazed at the high quality of their performances. Alot of the other guests were repeat holiday makers which is also a good sign. A very relaxing holiday.
