... reef shoes....stony!! We rounded the headland where we thought we'd find the ruins of Phaselis, but saw only a few old tombs, and then a well......you know when you try to pretend it's pretty cool to the kids, when you know it really isn't....bit like that...walked on another couple of km, and hit a few more substantially sized buildings, and thought this was it...kids super excited and Connor turning into Harrison Ford, darting off into the bushes everywhere, yelling ...
Am going to have to do a couple of food entries.... The kids are eating the most mind blowing variety of things...Kara even ate a fish eyeball!! Note to self, need to take more care with variety of foods for dinner, make them look more attractive, and set the table properly...Not really rocket science is it!!

... about 40 km later – I guess he decided not to take any chances after all! We had asked for a GPS and he said we could pick it up in Marmaris, and when we arrived there he asked us what store we’d like to buy it from. I guess something got lost in translation, as we thought he meant that we’d pick one up from the rental car agency there! Kelly and Ralph don’t travel without a GPS, but Jim and I were able to convince them that ...

I certainly won't do it justice here, but let me show you a few of the highlights...
Inside the city walls there was a theater and you can see from this photo that there were at one time statues on the plinths on this wall.
Many of these statues are now in the Antalya Archaeological Museum. Imagine this statue and many ...

Ender is an amazing guide. His professionalism and knowledge simply cannot be adequately described.
Several times during our travels he has shown us Turkish newspapers and demonstrated how the news is reported in different ways. Just like in the United States, where you know which ...

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.
