Between the airport and the hotel you can see Turkey in varying stages of development. Good roads shared with trucks, cars, horses and carts. The BL sits on the Antalyan coast, enjoying a private beach and superb amenities.
Our family accommodation consisted of a 2 bed/2bath apartment with lounge, terrace and kitchenette. The apartment was very clean and nicely fitted with air con, flat screen TV and decent furniture. The BL is a fully inclusive resort and boasts around 5 restaurants plus an excellent dining room where all meals are freshly prepared and served on a self-serve basis. Choose your table in the large and open dining room and a friendly waiter will be there to offer you a drink or clear away your dishes. The same applies to the several bars on-site. Except for spa treatments, use of all amenities such as tennis courts, volleyball etc is free and invariably an activity such as archery, rifle shooting, football, gym class etc will be managed by one of the entertainment team according to the daily entertainment plan.
There's plenty of space and we didn't feel overcrowded or felt that we needed to leave the BL for any reason. It was self contained and met all our needs. The evening may see a show at the ampitheatre, where visiting entertainment will provide a show of up to 1 hour, followed by dancing by the pool bar. Altrenatively, the staff put on their own shows, which were also well received. All Nationalities tend to mix well in this friendly environment and the staff each speak several languages, including English.
Food and drink is plentiful and the quality is high, but not up to Michelin standards, so don't expect haute cuisine. However, if you want excellent and varied Turkish cuisine, then the BL ticks the boxes.
I think that one of the key differentiators has to be the staff, each of whom are welcoming, friendly and eager to please. It's easy to understand why many guests return year after year, and a return to the BL would certainly be in our thoughts at some future date.
