I chose this hotel because located relatively close to the old town (2.5km), but still having everything what a comfortable hotel has to offer: big pool, gym, spacey rooms, near beach and good food (means, I expected it...and look, it was so:). I spent already few my vacations in Antalya. Kaleici is wonderfull, but the hotels there are small and mostly only good for sleeping over. This time I wanted Konyaalti. Hotel is located close to very frequent road, but filtered by the large green-area, the noise is ignorable. But not that one from the neighbor hotel (Falez)...loud animation program all day long (from Kasatchok to Samba)..till midnight. For me OK, I had music in my room (yes, I took my boxes with me) but few seniors on balconies beside mine did not look relaxed trying to reed a book or to enjoy sea view. Falez is located on east of Rixos...so I gues the rooms to the west are not affected. Check In was fast and easy, a concierge helped me with the bag. The room was clean, smelled good, had a separate "sitting corner", big flat TV screen (home-labeled with "Rixos"! :) and a bathroom with big glass-wall to the room. There were 2 chairs and a table on an enough big balcony (side view to the see ...direction downtown Antalya, & Falaz!). Two 0,5L bottles of watter were daily available...for free. Breakfast and dinner were very good. Some waiters were friendly and tended to keep "individual approach" to every guest, some (younger) appeared more confuse..probably because unexperienced and sometimes acting to fast (like, waiting on my last mouthful of food and then taking my dish away, while I still was chewing!). Food selection was excellent, especially dessert sweeties, creams, baklavas, fruits etc. My only complain is...the description of the meals by dinner was not really exact, mostly only "filled paprika", or "filled" this and that, but filled with what? I am vegetarian and found side dishes tasty, but vegetarian main dish wouldn't harm! The pool is an absolute highlight. End of September there is no battle for the deck-chairs. Lot of trees around, pool long enough even for serious swimming, sun till 6 pm. I loved it! Gym is located on the same level as SPA and the pool. It has all usual machines and it's open till 9 pm. SPA looked wonderful, but i didn't use it. Maybe next time. A Café on ground floor offers a good selection on teas. Hotel has a seaside exit, which leads through a big park, down side the hill, over a lot of stairways and woody roads till the beach-promenade. Rixos has some kind of contract with a part of the beach/a beach bar which is located approx. 800m away. A buss shuttle supposes to drive there few times daily, but I always took a walk. Deck-chaires and sunshades there are free for hotel guests.
You will need about 15min. by the tram to the old town, or less with some of the numerous dolmuses driving on the main road.
Guests-population is a good mix of Russians, Asians, North-Europeans and Turkish/Arabic visitors.
Rixos Downtown is a solid Hotel for beach-vacation combined with a city-trip. I would visit it again.
