This is an outstanding all inclusive hotel and you don't have to wear a silly band! Food excellent, service up to the standard you would expect from a hotel mainly patronised by Germans. Kids club very comprehensive and an outdoor heated pool as well as huge other pool and water park and indoor pool with hammam and sauna as well as fantastic spa (some extra cost). Coffee shop and ice cream bar open all day and even a late night buffet and for those if you obsessed with the quality of orange juice they have an orange squeezing machine at breakfast. Beach was being set up whilst we were there but water only 17 c at Easter. However we have great tans days hot and sunny about 25c. There is a very sophisticated cocktail bar which most people kept their children out of so that was nice (that includes us who took a 6 year old ). We went for cocktails whilst she was at mini disco. Can't thank AJ and Liesbeth and team enough Ellen had a great holiday and consequently so did we!
Cats are also cared for here they have a vet service and cat cafe at the cat house which is the best set up I have ever seen to care for the ever growing cat problem in med resorts. Also lovely for us missing puss at home cos we could visit and pet the inmates. Well done Barut Lara we will be back and soon!

A super hotel. Visited its sister hotel the Hemera in Side enjoyed it so much booked here.
Not dissapointed it was a lovely stay at easter time. We had a side room over looking where the suites were. I dont think I would have been happy on the other side of the hotel.
We took our daughter with us and there was plenty of room for the three of us in the room. The maid was lovely and our room was cleaned and kept perfect.
We did vist the al a' carte and enjoyed this very much. The fish restaurant was open too but we didnt try it. We enjoyed lunch down by the beach where food was cooked to order .Not everywhere was open due to being early in the season.
There is not a lot to do in the resort and most things are hotel based. We decided to go on a trip to Antayla and the waterfalls with another tour company at the hotel. This was ok but they failed to tell us we had to visit the gold factory on the way for two hours so beware as not my idea of a trip out and it was quite intimadating when you got there. When you go to Antalya make sure you go down to the little port as we nearly missed this.
I would love to return to this hotel but it depends on the cost as it is quite pricey when you look. But one day I will. I went back to the Hemera and it was just as good and I'm sure this will be too.

Excellent all inclusive hotel and resort. Service, food, staff, accommodation all excellent. Can imagine it is very busy in the summer, but there is no surprise there. Highly recommended.

Free mini bar in the room and free wi-fi (1gb which is suitable to check your email and Skype etc)

Once again a fantastic holiday at the Barut Lara.

We were visiting for the 7th time for 2 weeks over the Easter holidays, and were so lucky to have brilliant weather for nearly the whole holiday.

Got upgraded to.our 'usual' junior suite, where we were greeted with wine, chocolates and fruit. It was so good to be welcomed back by the wonderful staff, some we have met over the years and some new but everyone makes you feel special. Not all the facilities were open but gradually over our stay they were opening up, such as the burger/steak sandwich, jacket potatoes etc, the pool side drinks service, the outdoor restaurants, the water park etc.

This hotel will be closed during December to April for refurbishment, but in my opinion I hope they don't change it too much...what they have at the moment is what makes it special. A big thank you to all the animation team, especially Dogkhan (?) who did the daily shuffle board.

I have kept this brief but if anyone has any questions, please get in touch.

The Barut Lara Resort and Spa is probably the best holiday experience I've had. So much so that we're going back this year for the 4th year running.

The resort provides a mixture of accommodation from standard rooms (though they are far above standard quality) through to apartments with more rooms and facilities.

The rooms are really clean and comfortable with fresh fruit awaiting you on arrival. En suite facilities are great. The only downside is the lack of English TV channels, but we don't tend to go to this hotel to watch the box!

The choice of a la carte restaurants (alongside the self service restaurant) means you only need eat twice in the same restaurant if staying for a week and the food is fabulous and varied. It's always advisable to book the a la carte restaurants for an evening meal, as some are exceedingly popular. We especially enjoy the fish restaurant at lunchtime.

The staff are courteous and welcoming, no matter whether you're at the poolside, in the main hotel reception or in the restaurants.

The pools are clean and we've never had a problem getting a good spot. The resort has its own beach and jetty, so if you just want to lie in the sun (or shade) and listen to the waves breaking on the beach, this is the place to be.

Clientele? We've met fellow Brits there, but not many. The resort is frequented by a genuine mix of guests. We were aware of Russians, Germans, Austrians, Swiss and Dutch.

There's daytime and evening entertainment to suit different ages, led by the Animation team.

100% recommended, based on 3 years experience of this venue to date.

Went to this hotel feb 2012 and it was great, I really can't fault it. the staff were very friendly and helpful really went out of there way to help you. The rooms were lovely very light and airy and very clean, you could have eaten your dinner off the floor [if you had wanted to!] The food was excellent and there was so much choice! it was lovely to pop into the little coffee shop and try some of there fantastic range of cakes each day. The choice of food seemed endless. We went there to have a relaxing holiday and thats what we got, but I did notice that the hotel put plenty of activitis on each day. The grounds were beautifully kept and the beach was very clean as well. We had a suit and the views were lovely especially in the evening as the sun dropped behind the mountains. I can honestly say there wasn't any thing about this hotel that I didn't like. So much so that we have booked up and are off there again on the 16th April....counting the hours!

We have just arrived back from Berut Lara and had a wonderful time. It is obvious why people return year after year.
Fantastic staff- Miray (lobby bar) was so attentive and smiley night after night.the amination team were wonderful with lots to do all day and night ( even out of peak season- which is unusual).
The food- good quality buffet with lots of choice and the ala carte restaurants were very good. It is the first all inclusive we have been to and not been out of the hotel to eat dinner.
Not all the restaurants were open but this is down it being low season. I loved the cocktails and had most of them on the menu.
The shows were good especially the magic show- my daughter sat in amazement but so did the adults.
There was one slight (I'm picking here) problem and that was the lack of background music in the lobby bar on nights when there was no entertainment in there.
We are planning our next trip just disappointed we only spent 5 days here this time.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a suite if it's low season.
