... was at the Castle which is perched atop a cliff overlooking the water. We enjoyed a delicious dinner as the sun set over the water views. We then ventured onto to a local bar where a local band played upstairs. We danced to the early hours rocking to Turkish versions of songs by artists including Metallica. The most odd cover being a rock rendition of 'I'll do it my way' by Frank ...
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 ...
... able to get a good nite sleep (no 2:00 AM drums!) and also take a nap on the bus. We were able to get some expectorant, throat lozenges, and cold tablets without speaking any English. Just lots of gestures! So hopefully I am over the worst part. Tomorrow is our free day, so I should be able to take it easy. Last nite's experience dining out with Ramadan going on was interesting. Ramadan ends at ...
... the guides could herd our large group (10 per raft and about 6-8 rafts) through a photo opportunity in front of a waterfall. They would then charge ridiculous amounts for people to buy photos at the end. We didn't participate. It was also a shame our waterproof camera broke as we have no photos from the actual rafting. It was like watching monkeys in a circus. A mass conveyor belt of typical tourism hogwash. We didn't mind too much as ...
... the man we would buy some of each of the flavours and before we knew it he had stuffed a box full to the max. It was cheap and delicious so we didn't mind.
We spent 8.5 hours on a bus getting to Side. We read it was one of the smaller tourist towns but still naturally beautiful. The long bus ride was fine. As soon as we sat down we were handed icecreams, and throughout the trip we were given various snacks of cookies, weird chocolate things, herb and tomato ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rixos Premium Belek
Nous sommes restés au Rixos pendant deux semaines. Nous avons trouvé le service très lent aux bars et cela nous a semblé très ennuyeux à la fin des deux semaines. La nourriture dans le restaurant principal était toujours froide et le service était horrible : des assiettes toujours laissées à traîner sur la table,et il fallait courir après les serveurs pour obtenir un verre de vin. Les restaurants à la carte étaient très bons mais les réservations sont limitées. Les animations se répètent la seconde semaine. 88% des clients sont des Russes qui ne sont pas très sympathiques. Voilà pour les côtés négatifs. En ce qui concerne les points positifs, il y a toujours beaucoup de chaises longues, les chambres sont très belles et le spa est excellent. Globalement, nous avons passé un très bon moment. Mais pour un 5 étoiles, et pour le prix demandé, ils doivent vraiment régler ces problèmes.
Rixos Premium is superb
Stayed at the resort for 4 nights in September.
The hotel is fantastic.
There are so many things to do on the all inclusive package and the food and drink is very good.
The spa is great and the steam,sauna and ice rooms are at no extra charge.
The hotel also has a number of shops ,cafes and bars.
A short shuttle ride takes you to a water park that is also included in the price.
The hotel is mainly full of Russians who seem pretty cool and everyone seems quite relaxed.
I met one other British couple whilst out there and they enjoyed themselves too.
I definately recommend this hotel that along with Xanadu in Belek has been one of my most enjoyable stays in Turkey.
we (couple) stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. the room was very nice (but no door in the bathroom), pools are great, food and drinks are always there for you, and are very good. nice minibar in room is free and filled every day. action and shows are very very good.
It is a very good hotel, excelent services, clean, great for familys with kids.
It is full with russian, romanians and ukrains.
It is very big. I've stayed also at Xanadu Hotel Belek witch is more .... intim
Wir haben zwei Wochen im Rixos gewohnt und fanden den Service hinter der Bar sehr langsam, was uns am Ende der 2 Wochen schon sehr auf die Nerven gegangen war. Das Essen im Hauptrestaurant war immer kalt und die Bedienung sehr schlecht. Die dreckigen Teller blieben einfach auf den Tischen und man musste die Kellner regelrecht suchen, um ein Glas Wein zu bekommen. Das a la Carte Restaurant ist sehr gut, aber leider in der Anzahl der Reservierungen sehr eingeschränkt. Das Unterhaltungsprogramm wird alle 2 Wochen wieder holt. Das Hotel wird zu 88% von Russen besucht, die nichtgerade sehr freundlich sind. Das waren die Nachteile, nun die Vorteile. Es gibt genügend Liegen und ein sehr schönes und erstklassiges Spa. Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub in diesem 5 Sterne Haus, allerdings sollten sie bei ihren Preisen auch die Probleme lösen.
Tolles, wenn auch etwas teures, Hotel. Große, saubere Zimmer mit üblich gefüllter Minibar und einem großen TV. Hier gibt es viele Aktivitäten, die man unternehmen kann und eine große Auswahl an Getränken und Speisen im Restaurant. Es gibt ein großes Buffett und jede Menge a la Carte Restaurants und noch einen Supermarkt. Viele Bars. Hier können Sie wirklich weder verdursten noch verhungern. Ein wirklich angenehmer und erholsamer Urlaub, etwas abgelegen von all dem Trubel in der restlichen Türkei (wenn es dann ist, was Sie wollen).
It's just O.K
We have 3 children ( ages 4, 6 and 8) and went to Rixs Hotel premium in Belek for a week at the end of June. We had high expectations because of the advertisements and also due to the fact that we went to Rixos Kemer last summer. However we find it nice but a bit disappointing. the Beach and food were just o.k, the mini club is good as well as the animation. The indoor pool is closed in the summer and there are no water slides for the adults unless you go to the aqua part( which I don't advise it- it is very crowded because it is open for the other hotels). We had a relaxing time but I would not go there again. Belek itself is very plain unlike Kemer which was surrounded by green hills and very scenic.
we stayed at the rixos for 2 weeks we found the service very slow behind the bars and by the end of the 2 weeks was very annoying.the food in the main restaurant was always cold and the service was terrible plates always left on tables you had to chase waiters to get a glass of wine.the alacart restaurants are very good but you are limited to how many you can book.the entertainment is repeted on the 2nd week.the occupency is 88% rusian who are not very friendly.they are the down sides the upside is plenty of sun beds rooms are very nice the spa is excellant.overal we had a lovely holiday for a 5 star hotel and the price they charge they need to sort these problems out
Great (although a bit pricey) hotel. Large clean room with minibar which is regularly stocked, large TVs. Lots of things to do, plenty of variety of food and drinks in the restaurants. There is a large buffet and lots of different alacarte restaurants, plus food hall. Plenty of bars. You won't go thirsty or hungry. An enjoyable and relaxing stay, secluded away from the rest of Turkey (if that is what you are after)
My new digital camera is stolen in the main (indoor) restaurant. The hotel took no responsibility, and blamed me for being not careful. They told me I need to pay if they call the police.
