“NOT FOR BRITISH!!!!!!!!! (OR PEOPLE WITH A BASIC CONCEPT OF MANNERS)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We are just home from a weeks break at the Rixos Tekirova.

We were hugely disappointed with our stay and specifically Thomas Cook for ill advising us to go here. We were the only Brits there and surrounded by ignorant Russians (and other soviet countries - specifically Estonians - who have clearly not quite evolved yet). Their manners were nothing short of ridiculous, to name a few:

1.) Pushing to the front of the queue
2.) Brawling (Fist fight) in the restaurant in front of young families
3.) Tasting food from the shared dishes with shared cutlery (I.e. a woman licked the serving spoon in front of us to taste a sauce and proceeded to place the spoon back for others to use)

As for the hotel, food was okay.... staff were hit and miss.... generally rude and couldn't speak English. Rooms were clean and comfortable, pebbled beach, wine was awful (had to pay for any other bottle).

Whoever is writing these comments below could not have stayed at the same hotel. No way near a 5 star - 3 star tops.......

Good for Russian families..... anyone else stay clear.

Room Tip: choose a good room in another hotel / place.

Yes, it was my 4th (fourth) consecutive 13-day stay in Hotel-Rixos Tekirova last August. And what a stay it was !
450 meters of beach including the "Secret Garden" where you pay a daily fee if you want to enjoy a lot of privileges reserved only for you and your friends or family while you all lie down under the glofying and magnificent Mediterranean sun or when swimming up and down in your private lagoon (well, the sea in the private beach looks like a lagoon)!
A Serbian member on this site has asked me whether Hotel was really looking like the way that I tried to describe in my previous posts. My answer is You can believe me 150 per cent!
The extra 50 per cent comes from my experience with this hotel last month.

In this regard,
- The quality of the staff,
-The friendliness of the staff,
- And the helpfullness of the staff are all above and beyond all kinds of high merits !

And once again the location of the hotel proved itself unique in terms of its location. Although it is far from the Antalya airport (1 hour and 40-55 minutes depending on the number of stops of the tour minibus- well I drove my own car from Ankara to Tekirova- 620 km in 6 hours nonstop from door to door literally !), the location of the hotel keep you away from all possible crowding elements of the other locations of Kemer. Hotel's location can be an ideal location for any kind of hotel. Of course, you should see it for yourself in person to acknowledge. Photos of any kind that you can find on the internet showing the location of the hotel fall far from doing any justice to the beauty, serenity and coziness within 5-star luxury. I can desribe the hotel as the place of "home away home" and "beauty plus serenity plus luxury".

And the best thing about this hotel for me was to see that no single issue or aspect regarding the facilities of the hotel was left unimproved compared to their conditions of last year. There is a new management now in the hotel and they strive to outdo the previous management in all sections of hotel management.

The most friendly staff that you can see, the most entertaining night entertainment that can be experienced smoothly, the most encompassing spa in which you can rejunevate yourself relaxingly, the most delicious food that you can eat heartily, the most unbelievably clean sea that you can swim peacefully and the most enjoyable time you can spend amazingly in a summer holiday are all found in this Hotel easily.

This is a ONE-and-ONLY beautiful Hotel not only for families with children but also for singles or coubles who want to find the ever-invigorating power of friendship, closeness, sincerity and love between themselves in a secluded yet powerfully compelling atmosphere of peace, joy, fun and friendship within close proximity of the possibilities of utilization of all kinds of facilities

May be I will work abroad in next year away from my country but I will definitely come to Rixos Tekirova Hotel in the summer of 2014. Well, I already visited most of the countries and islands in Europe and the US (all the major and some other cities except the ones in Texas, I did not want to mess with Texas:)))) and the Maldives (well, I think the Maldives is oly good for honeymoons, nothing else!). This Hotel and all its surroundings shine above other places and hotels that I saw.

Go to Rixos Hotel-Tekirova next summer, I surely will !

Till then, I send all my best wishes to all the people on this site and beyond !

Take good care,

Yavuz


PS. I forgot to say some words about food other than "you can eat them heartily". If I tell you that some of the guests have been visiting this Hotel only for food for the last 8 years, may be this can give you an idea about the quality of the food.

Superb setting , isolated but within 30 mins walk of Tekirova , 5 mins bus . All facitlities on site . service and food excellent. Ambience a true 5 star rating comparable anything in Dubai or other high rate destinations. Staff particularly attentive and very well trained . caters for both families and others very well, integration good . Entertainment team a little too obvious and possibly intrusive , needs control. Otherwise entertainment varied and good. Relaxation was a must for ourselves and was easily and well attained , we spent 12 days their and could have spent a month .

Room Tip: You get what you pay for , but even the cheapest room is good value and 5 star rating.

We stayed 5 nights in this hotel for holiday. The hotel is perfect food, beverages,rooms and entertainment are awesome. But if you are young couple or single guy, you may boring because of most of visitors are with children. This hotel mostly suitable for families.

A heavenly nature, amazing sea , and usually high prices. These are common characteristics of almost all hotels at Tekirova. So, why you should choose Rixos Tekirova? Amazing service? Amazing hospitality? Amazing room facilities? High food quality? If you expect one of these I do not suggest any body. They should go to one of those hotels located at Tekirova riviera. I stayed at this hotel 14-19.7.2013. And never plan to go there. Paying that much should worth something. There must be at least one distinctive issue that separates this hotel from the others.... The first night we realized this fact but it was late. The main restaurant was so smelly and noisy. So decided to sit outside. Then we had to choose massively produced low quality food. Chicken nuggets, and ready made chicken products.... And then we asked from the waiter "RAKI". He brought something. We tasted and asked what is this? He said this is "YEDİ RAKI". All Turks know, you can not find this product at the market, this no name "thing" is a special production-low quality and therefore low price" for the hotel. We did not ask specially produced single malt whiskey, we only asked normal rakı. So you can imagine the quality of other alcoholic beverages.Ventilation of the main restaurant is very poor. Even during breakfast you smell like a cook who makes frying. If you want to reserve a table for the other restaurants you have to stand in a line at a place with no air conditioning. July, Antalya it was a torture.
These are the typical examples of this hotel management of how they treat customers- seeking profit...
I do not recommend this hotel to anybody.

Room Tip: Does not matter, I do not recommend this hotel.

Rixos tekirova stars 5/5
Beach: sand and pebble. A COVE for the hotel. Visibility 8-10 meters. Cleanliness 4/5 (actually 5 but some freakin tourist animal boats dump their toilet rubbish in the afternoon and the stuff comes to the beach once a day pm) BUT Rixos knows and they will deal with it (IT IS NOT A PROBLEM)...The water is awesome and very clean!
Family or singles? Mostly families. But youll meet the singles at Arena open dance floor at night ;-)
Night life and Animation : 4/5 (outdoor Disco ends at 12 but the atmosphere is Awesome more than I explain. DJ awesome music)
Nationalities: Mostly Russians and some local tourists. Some hairy animals spit on the platform but thats what animals do.
Platforms ? 2 platforms. Nice
Pool: No comment cause I havent used it. But looks nice.
Food: 4/5 The food is very good! when you cook for 1600 people everyday and still get it right thats admirable. Well done. Wide variety. And many restaurants. I loved the Rixos dream drink ;-).
Staff friendliness: 4/5 Quite nice. The best I have seen.
Room Service ( hard working but have trouble meeting the 2 pm new guest entry time but I would imagine thats because some people leave a little late. I dont know)
SPA : FRONT DESK Arrogant staff!!!!!!!!!! 2/5 They need to learn smiling and treating people better!!!!!
Overall 5/5 Awesome hotel and has a cove of its own!!! You will be sad when you leave! Thats what a real holiday is! The best money I spent on a holiday.
Price: well its a 5 star. As usual book early through an agency and you will get it cheaper.
HAVE FUN! Dont waste your time searching for the perfect holiday place cause THIS IS IT!

Room Tip: choose top floors for better view. B block cheaper than A block and closer to beach ;-)

Great hotel, I stayed at hotel during 20-27.07.2013. The weather was great, too hot that is cool for good tanning :) Entertaiment team was great, every show was really interesting and day was full of entertaiment. The most intersting of them was Emrah, he danced very good and he is very harismatic. All people in the hotel were very friendly and everything was great, I will be come back next year certainly. Your next destination is Rixos Tekirova, believe me :)
