just returned with my wife from 1 weeks holiday at the Baia Lara Hotel, well where do i begin, from the moment we stepped inside this beautiful hotel we knew we were not going to be disappointed. The quick check in at 2310 was a warm welcome after a 4 hour flight and a quick 15 minute transfer from the airport, Fresh glasses of some form of lime/lemon spritzer awaited our arrival, very refreshing. we quickly received our room keys and headed off to our room on the 5th floor, the luggage attendant promptly arrived with our cases( make sure you have some small lira notes as a small tip is expected for the service). The room was spacious & spotless, with a balcony overlooking the complex with it's 4 pools and a view of the sea and beach, even at night it looked fantastic.
During our week long stay we found all the staff very friendly and very polite, not once did we ever think he/she's got a bad attitude. The choice of food is varied and plentiful, if you can't find anything you like then you must be a fussy eater. Plenty of freshly cooked meat and fish in front of your eyes, lovely.
You can drink 24/7 if you like but we never managed to stay up later than 1 oclock, anyway there is a free mini bar in your room.
The Spa facilities are very impressive and reasonable priced, never tried the treatments but seemed well worth the money, turkisk bath, sauna and steam rooms are free,the indoor pool is warm if you don't fancy the outdoor pools which for april were a little chilly but got warmer each day.
Temp was well into the 70's most days, maybe even touched the 80's, a nice cooling breeze blew in from the sea but wasn't too severe ,just nice.
Plenty of room to spread out and lots of choice for where you wanted to lye down on your sun lounger. No need to get up at 6 in the morning to put your towel out "Bliss".
We would definitely recommend this hotel for both couples and families, the entertainment team work hard and long hours, but you never felt pressured to join in if you didn't want to.
The hotel is right on it's own strecth of beach which is lovely, a bit stoney but nice all the same, plenty of sun beds and umbrellas to keep the sun off your face if thats your thing.
The hotel caters for Russian, deutch and british tourists, so the standards are high. Well worth it's 5 TTTTT's in the brochure
Will more than likely go back again next year and that's a first for us.
