... a beautiful valley....didn't see a sole all day apart for a couple of farmers..."Merhaba" (hello, or peace be with you) they called and we replied....kids frightened by a couple of big turkeys!! The river we followed was dry, which made all the crossings pretty easy, and we arrived at the appointed pick up place just outside the national park at an old Roman bridge, with plenty of time to relax at the Turkish equivalent of a visitors centre....carpets, platforms ...
... nod or shake our head – he was very eager to please! We ended up buying some potatoes that never made it onto our lunch plate, so he was probably stocking up on dinner supplies too and getting us to pay for them!
We headed out to the choppy seas at 10:30 a.m. for our 4-5 hour tour, which ended up being six hours altogether. First he took us to the island of Kekova where we cruised along the shoreline looking at the ancient city both above ...
This door is the stage door and leads behind the staging area.
And the backstage passage way.
There was an arched gallery went around the top of the theater that protected patrons from the elements..and when we visited it was closed off. But, if you look at this view of the outside of the building ...
... Now though we have a bathroom that looks like Aerosmith partied in it. Eve called the front desk - thank goodness their English is better than our Turkish. Soon we had 3 Turkish men in our bathroom, drilling and hammering . I'm sure our neighbors were not at all pleased with us as it was nearing midnight. I looked at Mary and burst out laughing because she was in her pjs, but had run to put on a scarf when the maintenance men arrived. We laughed ...

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.
