“This hotel deserves more than 5 stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

My husband and I stayed in this hotel as a part of our Turkey trip. I can say this was the best hotel we stayed during our trip. Once, you walk into lobby, you see the first WOW. Very spacious, clean and welcoming staff. They make you feel at home.

The room we stayed had balcony with the Mediterranean sea and very very clean. I wish I could have same type of bedroom at home :)
My husband was a little fussy about Turkish food. But the food in this hotel met his expectations. The variety of the hot food+ salad bar amazed me.

The location was great as well. It is close to all amenities, public transportation, and hospitals (we had to go to hospital while we stayed there :( )

If we happen to go to Antalya again, we would definitely stay in this hotel. I would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone.

As part of a bus tour of Turkey, we spent 2 nights outside downtown Antalya, which we found out is also called the Turkish Riviera. The Akra Barut lived up to the top-notch reputation with beautifully furnished rooms overlooking the Mediterranean, a beach, 4 infinity pools, a Turkish bath on-site, and the most fantastic buffet breakfasts and dinners that a traveler could imagine! The service was outstanding, as they exchanged currency, secured transportation for us to go to the old town, recommended a tip for masseuse at the old town Hammam, and generally treated guests as if we were VIPs. I would stay in this hotel if I have a chance to return to Antalya.

Room Tip: From what we could see, there are no bad rooms.

My husband and I recently spent a couple of nights at the Akra Barut while on a tour of Turkey. It is definitely a 5 star property! From the moment we walked into the bright spacious lobby, we were in awe. We had a great room with a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean and the mountains across the bay. Sunsets were beautiful. The pools were inviting, but we opted for swimming in the sea off the hotel's "platform beach." The restaurant's buffet had a wonderful selection of delicious dishes, and it was difficult to restrain myself at the creative dessert table. As others have said, the staff was friendly and helpful, and there were no communication problems. The Akra Barut is a great place to stay!

The recently renovated, big twin bed room was outstanding, plenty of hot water. Free Internet and central location were a plus. Staff friendly and I didn't have any communication problems. Buffet meals had great selection of items and the food was high quality. Real orange juice was a plus.

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. Most certainly 5* plus! Every member of staff that we encountered made us feel welcome and simply couldn't do enough for us. We had a sea-view room for 5 nights and we added an extra night in a standard room at the last minute. The sea-view room was well worth the extra money to be able to sit on your balcony and look over the sea and mountains. The economy room was the same size and looked out to the front of the hotel which is attractive in itself with a lit water feature and coloured fountains, although not as quiet as the sea view rooms if you like to leave the windows open at night. Breakfast was amazing an the service in the restaurant by our waiter Veyzel was equal to that of any fine dining restaurant we have been to.
Although the Akra Barut is primarily a business hotel, the leisure facilities are superb and as most of the other guests were out on business during the day, the spa facilities and the gym were pretty much for our exclusive use! With 4 outdoor pools and a semi-olympic sized indoor pool, steam rooms, Hammam, sauna, relaxation room and a Life-Spa centre offering various treatments there was no shortage of things to occupy our day if the weather had been bad. In actual fact, the weather was excellent considering we travelled on November 3rd.
The Akra Barut in only 20 minutes from the airport and just a ten minute cab ride to the Old Town where one can find the Bazaar or markets as we know them, offering 'genuine fake' designer good of all kinds! The Marina is the old town is well worth a visit and we took a boat trip from there - remember to haggle for all prices!
There are plenty of local restaurants within walking distance of the Akra Barut although if you are looking for something a little more 'upmarket' the hotel has 2 excellent restaurants and there are others just a short cab ride away.
As far as currency ... although Turkey does accept Euros, things are a lot cheaper if you pay in Turkish Lira as the shopkeepers don't always convert currency to a favourable rate.
Ok - that's it, other than to say we shall be back at the Akra Barut as soon as possible. The perfect place to unwind!

Room Tip: Sea-view room worth the extra. Excellent wi-fi on our 5th floor room but a little erratic on our 6th...

If you have an opportunity when in Antalya to stay at the Akra Barut - do so, attempt to obtain an "Ocean View" room directly facing the ocean and enjoy the sunset as we did. If you unable to obtain an ocean view room then head over to the terrace to view the sunset and take along the camera.
We had the king room that was quite spacious, modern, and clean. There is also a large indoor/outdoor pool, and gym.
If you have both the dinner and breakfast buffet included with your plan, you will not be disappointed as long as you first do a thorough reconnaissance of the spread. Be very cautious as this is definitely a weight gaining zone, that should not be missed.

Would we recommend this establishment: yes

Would we return: yes
