You can tell that a lot of thought and money went into the Fame Residence Lara, the interior decorations are beautiful, the buffets are lavish, and it's easy to find a spot by one of the many pools with relative privacy. It's a nice hotel. On the other hand there a several things that separate this hotel from a true 5 star hotel, the first is service. The Guest Service staff were very rude and unhelpful each time we approached them. There is a hotel shuttle that is supposed to transport guests to Antalya for five euros, but the shuttle did not run any of the six days we stayed there. We also wanted to book a tour to two popular destinations and were told that this would have to be done between us and the tour operators, not through guest relations. There is wireless internet access at the hotel, but only in the lobby. The hotel has four elevators but no service elevators. Guests have to share rides with housekeeping carts. We had to wait far too long for elevators that were usually crowded and wound up taking the stairs most of the time. If you get stuck with a room on the far east side of the hotel like we were, your balcony will look down on rubbish heaps and a dirt lot where the non-running shuttles are located. The front desk staff was not very helpful when we requested a different room with a better view. We had originally requested an ocean view, and were told by the front desk that this is what we had. Aside from these things, the maids and wait staff were friendly, the food was good, and the rooms were clean. My only other observation is that there just isn't a lot to do at Lara Beach. There are great hotels near the beach on the other side of Antalya (Sheraton, Crowne Plaza) that are close to restaurants, a shopping mall, an amusement park, and the old town harbor. If we had known this in advance we would have chosen that location. Fame Residence Lara is okay if you get a good travel deal, but just know that it has a few shortcomings
