We visited this hotel the last week in July and the first week of August this year and although the hotel was nice and the food was good we did have issue's with the German's staying at the hotel. The hotel is about 5 % English , 5 % Dutch/Belgium and 90% German's who thought thought they had a right... More

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Melas Lara and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of a much needed break. My wife and myself have previously been to the resort but this was our first time at this hotel, it was booked only a couple of weeks prior to departure and we knew it was a smaller hotel than...

I travelled to Melas Lara with my wife and two close friends for a well needed holiday in what purported to be an idyllic oasis amongst others on the Turkish Riviera - Lara Beach. The holiday was booked months ago through Thomas Cook online, it was not inexpensive and I do not feel we got any bargains or perks- everything... More

This is a nice small hotel (compared to other hotels in Lara beach) . The hotel was clean, food was amazing and the staff were friendly. Even though the pool area is smaller than many other hotels in Antalya, but it was clean and nice and newish. The best thing about this hotel in my opinion was that even though... More

Conveniently close to Antalya airport (transfer time less than 20 minutes) Nice decor (Turkish baroque), very well kept rooms. Exceedingly friendly staff (giving the occasional tip helps, of course). Good pool, sufficient number of space and sun loungers, even for those who breakfast late. The lobby bar is air conditioned (which helps in sunny August), and so are the rooms.... More

Really disappointing and it actually pains me to say that! Just me and my 2 boys (10+14). The hotel was mainly German which I had no issue with whatsoever as all the families were perfectly friendly and polite. However, the staff barely spoke any English (or pretended not to when it suited). We were left to wait for our drinks... More

Having never been to Turkey we were very unsure what to expect, also reading some of the mixed reviews on here we were even more nervous.....we needn't have been!! Seriously amazed by the negative reviews and very sad that those people did not have the same experience our family and the friends we made out there had. I will break... More
