For our trip to Turkey, we decided to go for the Rixos Gocek Premium Suite and Villas. Another brilliant find by Lloyd, I must add. 🙂
The hotel is actually located in Gocek and not in Dalaman but it’s a short 30-minute ride from the airport in Dalaman so we at the hotel before we even knew it.
The welcome party were on the ball as soon as we arrived!
Recognise those suitcases from our Iceland prep?
As soon as we checked in, we were whisked off with golf buggies to the suites! I’m not even gonna pretend, I loved having someone haul my luggage around (even though it was quite light).
Fancy a little tour through the rooms?
The suite actually sleeps 4 people but we had no clue till we arrived.
Itching to see more of the place, the luggage was hurriedly chucked into the room, jeans and converses kicked off and swiftly replaced with swimming shorts and flip-flops and we hot-footed it out of the suites.

We arrived at the harbour area where there was a boat waiting to ferry us off to the ‘secret beach’.
Except it’s not much of a secret as everyone here knows about it. It’s only for guests of the hotel though so I guess it’s a ‘secret’ of sorts (Don’t question that logic, just accept it cos I can’t really defend it. 🙂 )
A short 5 minute ride and we were at the secret beach…
Where we noticed these amazing beach huts? Okay, I don’t really know what they’re officially called so I’m just gonna refer to them as beach huts. Needless to say, our first priority was making sure we booked one (for a different day though).
I forgot to mention at the start – everything is all included in the price here! We settled in very quickly at the beachfront with lunch and all the prosecco we could handle… before heading back to the hotel for a power nap (it was an early flight), dinner and a whole lotta cocktails!
