Excellent hotel only 20 minutes from the airport. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is extremely clean. We travelled in December and were there for Christmas, There were a lot of German guests and generally people in the resort greeted you in German (shops etc). The hotel has excellent facilities - spa (Turkish bath, sauna, steam room, indoor pool including toddler pool, jacuzzi), games room, lots of outdoor pool space (all closed for Winter season) and funfair for young children. Security in the hotel is good, with security guards both at the from of the hotel and beach entrance. It is straight out of the hotel onto the beach. The food is excellent - breakfast omelettes made in front of you, lots of choice at every meal. You would have to be extremely fussy not to find something you liked at every meal! There is a theme night for food each evening - Italian, International, Far East, Turkish, Fish, but plenty of other standard choice as well. So much we didn't think about using the a la carte!
Even in WInter the patissiere and TUrkish tent are opoen offering refreshments and snacks during the day - you could actually go from one to the other and never stop eating all day!
There is a shuttle bus service twice a day to Antalya (5 Euros) which is much cheaper than the 50 Euro taxi service. The Dolmus (Local bus) stops anywhere and number L38 goes to Lara (Good for market on Saturday). This cost us 5 Lira for 3 people each way. Dolmus means squash and it usually is!
The resort of Lara beach has a few shops and they like to take Euro and English money better than Lira! English is the best for bartering in some shops there. It seems that you need various currencies and anything goes! It also seemed that the exchange rate was better in resort than in England!
There is a fantastic little chemist at the end of the Grand Bazaar in resort, He is very helpful and cheaper than the rest and also a qualified GP. I would recommend him as the best in resort!
You can walk along the beach right to the end (a river separates this from the next beach!) and then take a dirt track (road) which leads to the shops then back along the road. This was our almost daily amble and took us around 3 hours with lots of shop visits and a gentle amble!
I would recommend this resort out of season. I imagine it being really busy and probably a bit noisy in season.
