“Wonderful hotel.”
Reviewed May 20, 2011

My husband, daughter, son in law and 5 year old grandaughter have just returned from a 2 weeks holiday at the Delphin Palace and we didn't want to leave. We had not booked this hotel however but were informed by the First Choice rep when pulling up to the hotel, that the hotel we had booked was full and we had to stop in the Delphin Palace overnight until something could be sorted in the morning. It was almost midnight and we were all tired especially my little grandaughter, we were extremely angry that we had not been notified previously as we had spoken with 3 different reps at the airport but we had no choice but to book in. The rep told us she had only found out 5 minutes before we arrived at the hotel but we doubted this very much when the reception staff welcomed us and had our rooms all ready and waiting for us. We were told by the rep that had been on the coach, that we had to speak with the First Choice rep in the hotel the next day before 10.00am, and she left. We were so angry and upset to discover that the hotel we had carefully researched before booking was not the hotel we had been dumped in. We knew nothing about the Delphin Palace and I must admit that when we first entered the hotel it looked dark, old fashioned and unwelcoming. We were too late to get anything to eat and were not told that there was a free room service available from midnight until 6.00am. Neither did we know that there was a 24hour bar which also had cakes and snacks available. I feel the rep should have informed us as the reception staff’s English was not that good.

We went to our rooms and discovered that we were at the front overlooking the busy main road and right above the outside seated smoking area. We were completely deflated after having so looked forward to our holiday together. My daughter tucked the little one in bed and the rest of us went off to explore the hotel so we could tell here what we thought and we would at least know something about it before seeing the rep the next morning. Of course we couldn't unpack because we didn't know if we were staying there. We looked around inside and outside as best we could but it was very dark of course and there wasn't much we could see outside. It didn't look that bad though to be honest at first glance.

We saw the rep the next day and she said we should have been told at the airport about the change but I won't go into the long list of untruths we were told by the First Choice rep. She still did not confirm that we would be staying in the Delphin Palace but said she needed to speak with her supervisor and then it was the office in the UK but as they were 2 hours behind it wasn't open blah, blah, blah. It was one untruth after another and we still hadn't unpacked. She said to come back later that evening. Note, it was always us having to go to her she never attempted to come to us or leave a note under the door or ring the room. When we went back in the evening she said there was another hotel further down the strip called the Bairut Lara which we could go to but she said it wasn't as nice as the Delphin Palace - (go figure). We decided it was better the devil you know (at least knew a little) but would prefer rooms away from the main road. The reception staff gave us the keys to 2 other rooms so we could go and look at them but they were much smaller and were right next to the Fame hotel which had thump, thump disco music going non stop so we just stayed put. At least we finally got to unpack and our holiday could start.

Despite its situation (double glazing would solve the noise problem) the room was lovely, spacious, immaculately clean and well equipped. There was a double bed, single bed and a sofa bed, flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities, basket of fruit (regularly refreshed), fridge topped up daily with peanuts, chocolate bar, pepsi, fanta, still water, fizzy water, beer, free room safe, plenty of pillows, towels and usual toiletries etc. Water was always hot but it was a bit of a stretch to get into the bath however they had thought about this and there was a notice in the bathroom stating that bath steps were available from reception if needed.

There were 7 speciality restaurants, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Japanese, French, Seafood and Turkish, 1 main restaurant which was split into 2 with a central outside cooking and sitting area. The speciality restaurants were for dinner only but there was never a problem in booking places which could be done via your phone, a touch screen display next to reception or at the guest relations office near the indoor swimming pool. Outside there was a huge choice. The snack bar (which also doubled as the Turkish restaurant) was available from 12.30 for lunches, the snack bar next to the amphitheatre offered, freshly made pizza, waffles, croissants, chicken wings, cakes etc, etc, etc. Mobile carts offered donner kebabs, jacket potatoes, hot dogs, milk shakes, rice, and added to this staff constantly came around the pool area offering freshly peeled and sliced apple, cucumber or carrots. Drinks were also brought to your sunbed by the staff that pushed their beautifully decorated barrows around displaying iced everything from water to whiskey. Another member of staff dressed in elaborate Turkish costume came around iced tea. From the main pool side bar you could get ice cream, toasties, slush drinks, iced coffee with ice-cream as well as the usual spirits, beer and soft drinks. Next to the snack bar a Turkish lady made Turkish bread all different flavours some savoury with spicy mince filling and some that tasted of apple and cinnamon. Cushions are on the floor to sit and enjoy the beautiful bread and baskets full of fresh fruits are also there for you to enjoy.

Bars: Main bar in the lobby area 24hrs serves imported drinks as part of package eg Johnny Walker whiskey, Malibu, Bacardi and much more. This also is the patisserie 24hrs. One of the waiters, George, has exceptional English and was always so pleasant. He told us his mother lives in London. There is also a Games room bar and disco bar, bars in both parts of main restaurant. Pool bar serves imported drinks after 8.00pm. Bar in both snack bars and soft drinks and beer bar (self service) in children’s play area. Soft drinks, coffee, tea, water etc at gates to left of beach entrance.

All activities except boccia and volleyball took place in or around the pool area. The animation team work very hard to keep everyone happy. Particularly Keray and Berol. Each morning, except Sunday, at 10.00am the cockerel crows and the song Good Morning, Good Morning it’s great to stay up late Good Morning Good Morning to you is played and all the team walk around the pool greeting the guests with a smile and hello. There is a display board showing all the activities available and the times. The team do not push you to take part they just casually go around saying what is happening or the announcement is made over the speakers. I read an earlier review where the writer stated their children were bored, I find that unbelievable. There is a mini club which offers different activities every single day, a water park with slides for adults and older children and a complete area named Children’s Paradise with slides and pools (numerous), together with a park complete with climbing wall, roundabout, swings, slide, trampoline etc. There is table tennis and full court tennis available and of course free of charge, even the tennis racquets etc. Every evening the funfair (Luna Park) is available with Ferris Wheel, Dodgems, Swing Boat, Flying Chairs, Train. They also offer candy floss and popcorn and everything is free. There is also a cinema showing children’s films, a games room with free pool and snooker, an indoor pool with separate little pool with slides for the tinies. One day the animation team had a huge area around the pool sectioned off for inflatable, bouncy castles, bucking bronco, and various other games so perhaps you can see how I am surprised to read their children were bored. Zia from the animation team was really lovely with the children.All pool towels are also free ie no deposit required.

I haven’t even mentioned the beach which has a beautiful wooden pier leading to a seated and sunbathing area and bar stretched out into the sea. The sand is a little rough on the feet and the sea does have a significant sudden drop so beware for young children and grandmothers in shorts but all in all it is beautiful. There are ample sun beds and the staff do their best to keep the rubbish at bay constantly patrolling to pick up the odd plastic cup etc.

It rained very heavily a couple of times when we were there and everyone rushes into the indoor pool area which also has a bar but which is usually closed but opens instantly when it rains and everything that would be available to you outside is wheeled into this area. Ice cream, Toasties, hotdogs, kebabs, cakes etc, etc, etc. and as soon as it stops everything is taken back out again. And what must be noted is everything is done with a smile and with such efficiency. The pool man (men) are putting the mattresses back on the beds, drying off the tables and plastics arms of the beds and other staff are going around with large brush squeegees to get rid of the rain water. The pool man, Selami Yuksel, I must mention because he was so helpful. My husband broke his sunglasses and Selami took them away and brought them back fixed. He used to come around cleaning everyone’s sunglasses and whenever anyone was celebrating a birthday he decorated their parasol with balloons and streamers.

The Relax pool is for adults only and is a lovely retreat and is open until 7.00pm bottled beers including Fosters are available here together with huge choice of drinks and various eats. In the evening it is the relaxation area where you can lounge on a bean bag and smoke the Turkish pipe. The hotel has a spa. The hotel grounds are absolutely immaculate and full of beautiful colour. All the plants are named. I could write forever about this beautiful hotel and I am sure I wouldn’t cover everything. However despite all the amenities the one thing that makes this hotel stand out way above the crowd is the staff. They really are outstanding; always smiling nothing is too much trouble. I haven’t been this impressed for a long, long time and will I go back you betcha!!

I'm 27 and my partner is 26. We have been to various countries on various hols from Villas, Self catering apartments, hotels and all inclusives. This was our first AI in Turkey on the recommendation of a colleague. Our remit was a relaxing beach holiday with good food/drink to relax for a week from the stresses of home.

Firstly I would like to tackle some of the "issues" which I read that caused slight concern prior to our holiday from previous holiday makers reviews on this site:

- Main issue I had from reading other reviews before travelling was the reported building works next door. Yes there is a very impressive looking construction site ( Delphin Imperial opens 2012) and there is the associated building noise you would expect ( little later at night though). However the Delphin Palace is a good distance away ( the Delphin Diva is right next door to this building literally),The building works didn't bother us one bit and we sat at the relax pool directly behind the site most days. We requested before arriving a room not facing the construction site and were given a room at the side of the hotel however the noise can be heard around most of the hotel ( beach being the exception) so moving rooms wasn't really required as the disturbance in your room wasn't noticable to us.

Animation Team/Entertainment - Very friendly and polite. Exceptional with the kids and even those like us who had no children got a very welcome each day. If you don't want to participate in the organised games/entertainment at day or night then politely say its not your thing and they happily let you get on with your day without pressure or guilt.
Don't understand the comments about the entertainment, we watched a very good brazillian dance troop and african acrobatic group and found these of a very good quality for an AI resort. Music in the upstairs JOIA Bar was geared to all holiday makers UK, German etc with songs in different languages. Most entertainment was provided in English.

- A common complaint on previous reviews was the hotel location. Lara Beach is mainly an all inclusive resort with very little pubs, clubs or restaurants - as most people don't eat out when all inclusive. For us this was clearly explained in our travel documents etc and wasn't an issue. We only ventured out of the resort to go shopping one day.

Now for our review of the Hotel:

Hotel
Very impressive building that stands out from the others in the areas. Well decorated and maintained inside and out with immaculate cleaning standards. Two pool areas and kids pool/slides along with beach front ( private). 3 indoor bars and another 4 bars around the resort. 1 main buffet restaurant for all meals, snack bar/pizzeria/kebab stand/outdoor restaurant and 6 a la carte restaurants.Cakes/snacks available in the Joia bar throughout the day/night. Room service also available after 12pm. There is a spa/indoor pool ( Spa services are payable and seemed quite expensive, haggle and you will get around 25% knocked off on quiet days).
Rooms were spacious with LCD tv, balcony, mini bar etc. Very clean. Several english channels ( around 6 in total).
The only negative we found was the poor poor quality of mattress which must be addressed!!

Service
Outstanding!!! All bars/restaurants operate table service for drinks. So find a seat and someone will see to you. No request is to much trouble in my experience from drinks at the bar to waiters assisting in table arranging etc. Only negative is some staff have limited english so any problems outwith the norm can be a struggle - during check in you are required to hand over your passports and unfortunately we dind't notice until we checked out that we had been handed back another couples passports. Communicating the seriousness of this mishap to the staff did take sometime but luckily the problem was quickly sorted by the other couples arrival to check out during this time. But communication was poor during this problems with one staff memeber saracastically suggesting we were idiots for not realising sooner - partly true but for a 5 star establishment at the end of our trip maybe not the best comment to make.

Food & Drink
Breakfast - everything from cereals, pastries, toast, fresh pancakes, cooked breakfast, juices, booze etc etc something for everyone
Lunches/Dinners - Pasta station, kebab stand, fresh meats, soups, fresh meats/salads, various cooked meals, fries, rice, potatoes desserts, pizzeria ( outside behind slides freshly made to order very nice !!!) and theres the Ottoman restaurant (beside beach entrance)with burgers, soups and pastas. I also recommend the Mexican a la carte as we personally went their twice. Wait for the free Tequillas!!
Booze - Everything from 15+cocktail list, brands such as beefeater, bacardi, red label whiskey, Tia Maria, Fosters, becks, wines (all), absolute vodka and various liquers etc etc Wonderful !!!!!

Weather
We stayed 09.05.11 - 15.05.11. We had 4 very nice days with temps between 23-28ish each day. We also had a few days of rain ( 1 complete day and 2 days of showers) however we were told this was the exception not the rule for May.

Money
For shopping in the hotel ( 5-6 boutiques/jewellers) take Euros ( although they will convert to Lira or pounds). Markets ( one is held in the hotel on Saturday night after dinner) they again accept the above but everything is priced in Lira. Other shops nearby operate euros mostly. I would advise taking half pounds and half lira, not sure changing to euros then lira is beneficial overall.

Visa
When entering the country you are aware of the £10 (english notes) per person visa. However it isn't very clear how to obtain these upon entering the airport. As you enter the passport arrival area head to the Visa stands and don't follow the crowds and queues to the passport booths without your passport being stamped ( so many people in our queue did this and had to queue all over again twice).

Overall

Wonderful relaxing break in luxiourious surroundings. The people are extremely friendly and the quality of food and drink is always to a very high standard. Poor quality of bed and not enough fluent english speaking staff were only very minor negatives. I cannot wait to go back again and would recommend to family and friends without a second thought.

This was the first time spending holiday in a all inclusive resort. Normally we make car trips and visit several nice places. We spent 8 days in Delphin Palace and although we do have some improvement points, we enjoyed it very much. For us a great place to spend short holidays. Children have the time of their life here.

Staff and personnel is great, helping you in any way you need. Very child friendly, clean, more than enough food, great pool, miniclub, etc. etc.

We as Dutch people only feel that the personnel sometimes is a little bit too close with the children. They have a habit of touching children as a gesture of appriciation. We think that can be less. But probably that is a part of their culture.

Entertainment is always a point of discussion. You like it or you don't. I liked the fact that after one time saying no, they do not ask again. No pressure to join in. And yes, the games and or shows they perform, can be questionable. It will always be difficult to please so many people. I would say, if you do not like it, walk away.

Also a very good point is that there are people walking around from the Guest relation asking you for points of recommendation. Of course I do hope that they will take all points into consideration...!

At this time they are building a new hotel next to the Palace also from Delphin.
We are very enthusiastic to see the end result and hope on a nice offer for people spendin holidays at Delphin before!

We for sure will return to the Delphin hotels!

Room Tip: Always be polite and explain what your problem is.

Not having had an all inclusive holiday before i was a bit sceptical of food quality etc.. It was the best holiday i have ever had.. the hotel staff were so attentive, they were to fill your glass before it was empyt! There was so much variety of food it would take weeks to sample it all and the quality was excellent. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The pools were excellent and the idea of an adult/over 14years only pool was good. The turkish bath and massage was a great experience and staff were lovely.

The only negatives were.. although it was stated there was a balcony ther was just room for a very small table and two chairs. The night time entertainment was not very good and because there was no alternative places to visit you were stuck with it!

We have just returned from a 2 week family holiday at the Delphin Palace and I have to say that we had a great time. We liked the hotel so much that for the first time ever (we usually go on lot's of excursions) we did not leave the hotel in the 2 weeks that we were there.

The hotel was very clean, the decor was good, the kids club and entertainment was very good indeed and the selection of food available (even without including the Ala Carte restaurants) was mind-boggling. The Ala Carte restaurants are also pretty good but I would avoid the French Restaurant as this was to be fair, pretty poor at best but the Mexican, turkish and Japanese were very good. In fact we enjoyed the hotel so much that after returning in the early hours of this morning we have already booked for us and our extended family to return to this hotel next year.

With the above in mind you will ask why didn't I rate this as Excellent instead of just very good?

Well in truth there were a couple of minor things that let the hotel down and really they were only minor but it's these things that stick.

Whilst almost all the staff in the hotel were over-friendly we found the Reception staff to be a little un-approachable and not over willing to assist. For example, we had a problem with our Aircon that took 4 times of asking at Reception to get fixed and indeed was only resolved when we complained to Guest Relations. At this point it was fixed immediately. The allocated room was also on the small side for a family of 4 but this wasn't really the hotels fault as I should have read the small print closer but if you do have a family of 4 then I would strongly suggest taking the adjoining double rooms option even if it is a bit more expensive. And finally quite a lot of the staff do not speak English but then seeing that 75% of the people staying at our hotel were German and only 8% English this probably wasn't surprising so if you have ny German language skills it may be best to gen up on these before going as being able to speak a tiny bit of German certainly assisted me.

So as I say, almost perfect lots and lots of positives especially the All Inclusive package which really is All Inclusive (Unfortunately I put on 6lbs in 2 weeks - not good!) and the Animation Team which were EXCELLENT (especially with our children) but just a couple of tweaks needed here and there.

GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY and I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Family of 4 - Take the adjoining doubleroom option

I booked our holiday at the Delphin Palace Hotel after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor and indeed it is a very good resort. As it was the first time we stayed for 10 days in an all inclusive hotel (we normally rent a car and move around booking hotels as we please) it is hard to compare but what we can report is the following :
- the chefs and kitchen staff are fantastic, they deserve a medal for the quality of the food they present each day, morning, lunch, snacks, diner, midnight snacks. absolutaly amazing, it is made fresh in front of your eyes, with local products that taste wonderful.
- the place is immaculate, there are staff cleaning constantly in the restaurant area, by the pool, in the lobby, the toilets etc.. The staff in charge of the pool area maintenance walk around the whole day collecting the individual rubbish bins by the loungers, cleaning up the bins, the ashtrays, the loungers and even polishing your sunglasses !!!
- the pool area is lovely, with beautiful cabanas and enough loungers for everybody (but watch it, the Germans and Dutch are running down each morning at 8:30 to put the towels on the beds & cabanas),
- there is an other pool called ' relax pool' for adults only,
- the gardens are very well ooked after and beautiful,
- the beach part is also super clean with lovely cabanas and the jetty is really nicely setup
- the animation team for the young kids was nice, my son (8) who is a bit shy was very well looked after by the team in charge of the teenage kids. I read a lot of contradictory comments on the animation team, we saw them working very hard and indeed there is a lot of dressing up as women and a bit of mocking but the young crowd seem to love it. We did not attend any of the shows (too late for our son) but I did hear good reports from other guests. What I regret is that except from one of the lady leading the little ones and one of the man leading the teenage group, none of them spoke English but a broken mix of German, Turkish and a bit of Russian.
- the free shuttle bus that took us to Antalya, leaving at 9:30 and returning at 14:00, very practical althought it would be nice a couple of times during the week a shuttle that would leave in the afternoon and returning in the early evening for a different experience.
- the different 'a la carte' restaurant with different theme (italian, mexican, japanese etc) when want to be served food at the table for a change, (at no extra cost),
- a very popular gym for those guilty to eat too much, a bowling alley, tennis courts, table tennis tables all free of charge and easy to book,

what we liked less :
- the location as it is far from Antalya (nearly 40mn by shuttle bus),
- a building site next to the hotel (building an other Delphin hotel for May 2012), was noisy in the evening as they work night as well sometimes,
- the shops around the hotels are thinking that all tourists are loaded and ready to pay stupid prices for fake Tshirts etc..
- the limited activities when the weather is poor, we suggested to the PR lady to organise extra shuttle to take guests into town when the weather does not allow to sit by the pool
- the service for drinks in the restaurant could be improved, it was very slow to get drinks and it wasn't peak season yet,
- the entertainement in the Joia club was the same every single night, very boring after the 3rd night... it's really geared for German tourists and is so outdated. The lady singing is good but would be nice to add some more up to date songs and variation of style.
- hardly any of the staff speak English, it was really difficult to communicate in general, which I think is very poor for a so-called 5 star hotel.
- no English newspaper, only German and Dutch
- the staff in the shops inside the hotels are not very nice and watch if you buy stamps, it says 1.70 Turkish LIra on the stamp but they charge you 1 Euro, so nearly double !! and the explanation when I asked is : it is a 5-star hotel... never heard that one before !
- for us the hotel was too big and impersonal,
- wireless internet in the rooms was too slow and kept breaking,

all in all it was a nice holiday, we were very impressed by the quality of the food served and the cleanliness of the property, lots to eat and drink. I just think personally that the decor is outdated compared to its sister hotel Diva next door which is smaller and more classy.

Room Tip: complain about the noise of the building site !

Having just returned from our 2 week holiday in the Delphin Palace we wanted to say what it was like. We have never made comments before about a holiday but felt we needed to say how it really is. The hotel is fab inside and out. The waiters are good.You get the senior waiters with the walkie Talkies , thinking they are bodyguards !!!. The downfall for us was the Animation Team which has already been commented on this site several times. The shows they performed were ridiculous and all involved sticking balloons down their tops and dressing up as women. They were not interested in involving children in the day activities as were only interested in the women as most of them are male.It is a bit like ground hog day with the same darts, volley ball and football. On an evening when a dance group were brought in for a show the Animation Team took over mocking and making a spectacle of themselves. The band in the Joia Bar were ok but after 12 nights of~ Living next door to Alice~ sang to you, it got a bit monotonous towards the end. There were fantastic features to the hotel but certain things that let it down in a big way. More and more people are complaining about the decline in facilites for the children. Our 3 children were bored solid for 2 weeks. Reception staff were rude and I suspect a lot of staff dislike the English . They treated the Germans like royalty, polishing their sunglasses for them !!!!.. No English newspapers in the lobby.The cleaners were friendly and the food in the hotel was fantastic but I think The Delphin Palace needs to listen to feedback to improve its entertainment and attitude of certain staff to get people to come back. We never saw our Thomas Cook rep the whole time we were there. Not a lot of information is given to you when you arrive . We were originally booked into the Delphin Diva but were asked if we wanted to transfer to The Delphin to a sea room which we did. We were allowed to use both hotels facilites. The Delphin Diva was very crowded ( get a sunbed early ) when we had a day there. Overall the holiday was good but could of been fantastic with a few changes.
