The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance to shops. In the Thomson welcome meeting, several managers from different areas of the hotel, including entertainment, catering, hospitality, as well as the Front Office Manager himself, Serdal Korkmaz, introduce themselves to you; this is something you don't often see. If you have any problems the hotel management will try their best to accommodate your individual needs.
Rooms: cleaned twice a day and your towels are changed daily. Included in the room, you get the use of bath robes, slippers and a safe is included free of charge. On arrival you will receive fruit and wine in your room, and a free beach bag, with towels for use around the pool- no need for towel cards! The mattresses are of a high quality and very comfortable, including extra sized pillows for comfort. There is also a free mini bar in your room, which is refilled daily!
Additional touches and services: you do not need to worry if you are travelling with little ones. Pushchairs are free of charge and are immaculate- I have a Bugaboo so I am very particular, particularly things being clean! The hotel will also provide free baby wipes, baby shampoo, bottle warmer, baby food, baby bath- you name it, the hotel will have it!
Pools: the hotel has three pools, including a children's pool with a slide, and an indoor pool. We stayed at the hotel for 11 nights, and we saw the staff three times taking samples of the water to test the cleanliness; this is quite reassuring! The hotel staff work assiduously hard to ensure the hotel is maintained and kept clean 24 hours.
Food and drink: there is a late breakfast for those late sleepers, available until 11am, and then lunch begins at 12,30pm. The lunchtime food is made to order and table service, there are also jacket potatoes, pizzas, toasties and pancakes available from different areas around the pool, not forgetting ice cream for the little ones! The food is fresh and always something for everyone. A lovely touch to the hotel is the fresh orange, which is inclusive, and there are fresh smoothies available at certain times in the morning and afternoon. There is also a vitamin bar, should you wish to purchase at an additional cost.
There are 5 a la carte restaurants (Asian, Turkish, pizzeria, Italian and seafood); you will need to book these yourself, using the machines located in the reception area. You need to book three days in advance, as these fill up very easily; although, the restaurant was never full. The food is amazing; however, I found the children's menu in the a la carte very repetitive e.g. chicken and chips, pizza etc. My daughter eats quite healthy, and the staff were more than accommodating and allowed us to select from the adult menu for her. They will also cater for individual dietary requirements, on request.
The food in the main restaurant is lovely and there are chefs outside cooking fresh food. There is also a wide selection of fruits and deserts available.
Entertainment team are fantastic! Johny, from Mini Club, a massive thank you for making our daughter's holiday special; Lara, aged four, still talks about him! Another thank you to the girls- Maria and Natalia. My daughter is rather shy and they made her feel very welcome, to the point that she didn't want to come with us on the last two days of our holiday. She wanted to go and play mini golf with the girls! This is the first holiday that we have ever left her, and each time we peeked through the window she was happily engaged in the activities provided. They were always with her and reassuring her.
The adult entertainment are all excellent from morning til night! The amphitheater has a variety of acts for everyone. Some acts were exceptionally talented and a cut above other hotels that I have stayed at. We stayed at the Liberty Lara last year, and although it was nice and have no complaints, this by far exceeds expectations!
You won't be disappointed!
