Ok let's get to the specifics. The Baia Lara has some really good points and some not so good so I will start with the good-
The hotel is very clean and tidy.
The pool is loveley.
The beach is very nice.
The maids are brilliant and rooms are kept spotless and the mini bar is topped up every day.
The reception staff are friendly and always willing to help.
The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere.
The spa is the best I have ever been to - highly recommend the Turkish bath and massage.
The kids club looks just as clean and has an enclosure for those with younger children.
Now the not so good-
The beds are a disappointing not too bad but had much better.
The entertainment is poor and you need to entertain yourself - unless you call playing cards and having a drink entertainment.
The food is quite good however it's the same every night and just when you think one of the 3 restaurants may impress unfortunately the food tastes the same and like its all from the same kitchen.
No English channels on the TV.
The breakfast may be good for some European guests but not a sausage or rasher of bacon in sight - egg on toast gets boring after a few days and the cheese and cold meats in the morning make you feel sick.
No staircases except the fire escape the lift is very busy and always full so it can take a while to get up and down.
I am comparing this hotel to sentido perissia in side and whilst Baia is probably a bit newer and brighter I think overall the sentido perissia has the edge based on fun, entertainment and overall value for money - next time I come to Turkey I will return to sentido perissia for sure - they have the fun factor much more than Baia Lara. Sorry - it's a really nice hotel but something missing for me and I will defo be ready to go home after 11 nights
