We have just returned from a two week stay at the Delphin Palace Hotel Lara Beach Antalya, this hotel is the best we have stayed at in Turkey so far, their staff our some of the best that we have ever been looked after by & it has been a pleasure to meet them, nothing was ever to much trouble, there are also some staff who will go that bit further for you so much so you feel you are with friends, we found three such people in a very good lobby bar team Melek & Teoman along with Tekin from the pool bar team, there are others who were very good from the restaurants & pool areas along with a good Animation team, the Customer Relation team were also very good.
The hotel areas & our room were well laid out with good AC throughout which was needed as the temperature reached 51, NOTE the only fault that we think people should be aware of is the bath/shower in our room was very high due to the shower screen being mounted on top of the bath this made it very hard to get in & out of without slipping, the shower screen also prevented there being any secure hand holds which could be a problem for some people other than that this is one of the best rooms for comfort we have had.
The main restaurant was well laid out & the food was some of the best we have ever had which was the reason we never tried any of the a la carte restaurants, the one fault we found with the main restaurant was that no area was set aside for adults only, we felt there should be an adults only area as some nights there was a lot of children.
The grounds were well laid out with plenty of shade around the pool & beach areas & once again the service in these areas was some of the best we have had, I think the pool areas could do with life guards on duty to police the hotel pool rules making it safer for all users, it was good to see that most of the drinks were served in plastic cups but I think a total ban on all glasses around the pools would be a great improvement as twice we had to get glass broken by others cleaned up. NOTE this was not so much the hotels fault but more to do with the holiday makers who would keep bring gasses to the pool side & just leaving them any ware, possibly the same type of holiday makers who encouraged there young children to use the pool side showers to pee in rather than take them to the WC which would have meant they would have had to get off their sun bed or out of the water to take them, the same holiday makers who demand a drink rather then ask for one & think they should be served first at all times, we do not know which nationality they were, but I am glad they were not English.
Animation team did good job with the activities but it would have been good to have had some adult’s only activities, but overall there was plenty to do or watch throughout the day & night for all ages.
Overall this is a very good hotel for family’s & couples but if you want less children & cooler temps we were advised to try April/May or September/October which we will hopfully do next year.
