My husband and I have never really fancied Turkey but as our daughter and her family have stayed a number of time around the Antalya area we thought we,d give it a go. Some friends we met a couple of years ago in Sharm el Sheik recommended this hotel as they had stayed there last year so we bit the bullet and decided to go for 2 weeks arriving on 7th Sept. Like other traveller have commented we were disappointed not to get drinks in reception on arrival and I must say the staff on reception when we arrived were a bit abrupt. We were taken to our room 7010 which was really nice although at first I was a little disappointed it was overlooking he front of the hotel and not overlooking the pool which we had asked for. The facilities in the room were fantastic and you really don't need to take any toiletries with you at all as everything was provided even a razor and shaving foam. The girl that cleaned our room did a fantastic job and everything was replaced when we needed it to be. The Lobby bar, well I have to agree with other comments about the bar man with the spiky hair he was just very rude and arrogant and if you were male or female over 25 you had no chance getting served by him he just ignored you and served the young girls. Also two of the young women waiting on could have done with reaching how to smile the smaller one in particular. Good was fantastic and the drinks plentiful and of good quality. And the cocktails must be tried. The outside area was very impressive but I must say our favourite spot on on the Lower deck of the pier the breeze from the sea was wonderful and we even saw a huge turtle a few times. The holiday was quite expensive compared to what we would usually pay but I must say you get what you pay for. We met some lovely people and there was a really good mix of nationalities it's nice to go somewhere that the Russians have not taken over. I believe that next year the only British tour operator in the Baia Lara will be Thompsons not sure this is a good thing as I checked the price just over a week ago and it was £1390 each for two weeks in September when I looked yesterday it's gone up to over £1400 clearly Thompsons have the monoply not good for the holidaymaker try to get a good price. Would definitely love to go Again.
