We have just returned from a two week holiday at the Barut Lara Resort and Spa Hotel in Lara Beach Antalya and have immediately booked the hotel for the same time next year. Although we regularly go on holidays we don’t usually go to the same hotel more than once unless it has something special to offer. This hotel ticked all the boxes on the features we considered to be important when taking a holiday in a hot sunny climate.
Sun beds and parasols
The hotel has a large number of sun beds and good quality parasols which was more than enough for all guests. No matter how good a hotel’s facilities and amenities may be it is a big negative when you have the hassle of getting out of bed early each morning to try and get a sun bed and then worry that you will lose it when going to lunch. The hotel excels in this aspect and you can take late breakfasts with no worries about finding sun beds and parasols.
Grounds, beach and pier
The grounds are enormous with several swimming pools together with convenient bars and restaurants. The hotel also has a sandy beach with an attractive pier and many more sun beds and parasols when you prefer to be at the seafront. If you have a family with young children the hotel has a lot of amenities with games, children’s pool and play areas. If you want peace and quiet there are many areas you can go to relax in the sun or shade. The standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel and grounds is impressive and even the beach toilets have sensors to activate flushing when you exit.
In addition to the main restaurant, the hotel has six specialty restaurants which have no restrictions as to how many times you use them and no supplements or charges; you simply book the restaurant of your choice with your room key up to three days in advance.
You can cook your own food in the barbecue restaurant; have Chateaubriand steak carved at the table for two people in the à la carte restaurant or dine in an excellent Turkish restaurant with fresh made flat bread, dips and a good selection of traditional Turkish dishes.
A team of twenty four women and men work hard to ensure everybody enjoys themselves. They offer games and activities for all age groups (children to oldies) and it is up to you to decide to get involved or simply relax. Two shows which featured Russian Dancers and acrobats where as good as we have seen anywhere; including shows on cruise ships and even Las Vegas. Also included during our stay was a superb Gala Evening with an excellent buffet meal laid out on the hotel grounds which was followed by an impressive fireworks display
Friendliness of staff
All members of staff were extremely friendly including bar staff, waiters, and reception staff together with a very helpful guest relations team that provided a valuable and courteous service.
Having a good night’s sleep each night in a cool quite room is essential to enjoying a holiday with extremely hot weather. We found the air conditioning system kept the room cool at the lowest setting with no noise.
Our holiday at the hotel was exceptional value for money and we had no hesitation in booking a further visit to the hotel next year.
