My boyfriend and I have just returned home from a week at the Barut Lara and we had the most amazing holiday. We stayed from the 22nd - 29th April and had perfect sunshine throughout our stay which was just an added bonus to this beautiful resort. On arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite which was a great surprise, this gave us a seperate lounge area, large bedroom with a very comfy bed, lots of wardrobe space, large bathroom and a seperate toilet. From the balacony we had an amazing view of the beautiful mountains which surrounded the resort. Sunset was just magical and we were always running late for dinner wanting to sit out on the balcony to enjoy it with a drink. The room was spotlessly clean and cleaned to great standard every day. The housekeepers did a great job.
The food and drink were faultless. Breakfast was great, a couple of mornings we had boiled egg and soldiers which were super, yoghuts, cereals, croisants, bread, eggs omlettes, pancakes, waffles ect all available, also great tea & coffee! We had lunch at the beach restuarant everyday which had a welcomed breeze after being in the sun all morning. Burgers, pizza, chicken, soups, spagetti, salads ect all brilliant quality. We ate at four of the Al a Carte Restuarants ( I don't think they were all open yet with it being a bit out of season). The Seafood Restuarant was a favourite and I had the most amazing chocolate cheesecake dessert (Rococo Cake) YUM! The main buffet restuarant was great too, you could choose from a wide variety and things and was all very enjoyable. Definately try the soups, they were very very tasty!All the food was delicious, we ate like kings for the whole week from breakfast to dinner with lots of drinks in between. The waffles at the snack bar were good too, perfect little afternoon treat (your on your holidays after all!!)
Drinks were again amazing, anything you could possibly want. My boyfriend really enjoyed the Efes Beer (turkish local beer), there was also Becks and Miller. The wine and spirits were all superb quality and all the international brands were available and at no extra cost which can be the case in the some of the other hotels at Lara Beach. The champagne was also a favourite. The lobby bar was really nice and the service was the best. As soon as our glasses were empty they were being replaced by another drink. The bar staff were brilliant and always remembered what you were drinking. Great atmosphere in the bar aswell which brings me onto the animation team...
They were really great at their job and made everybody feel welcome from the activities they did in the day to getting everybody up dancing at night. If you didn't want to join in the with activities they would still take time for a chat with you and were great fun to get along with especially Gokhan & Dogukan Ozuak. They were wonderful at dancing and they put on couple of great shows including Miss Lara which was very fun. A big thank you to them, hopefully we will see them when we return.
We had a turkish bath at the spa which was one of the best things we have ever done. We really enjoyed this and it was spotlessly clean. I would definately recommend this to anybody going to Turkey. We also went jet skiing on the beach which was fantastic. Both at an extra cost.
Overall we found this hotel to be absolutely fantastic and would definately return. I have stayed at the Kervansary Lara and the Limak Lara and this was definately the best. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with clean facillities, great food & drink and wonderful service then go to the Barut Lara, you will not be dissapointed. I hope we return in the future.
