take elasticated clothes! Ha..
hotel is very nice, food is much higher quality than alot of the hotels iv stayed in. Smoked salmon for breakfast which i love! The pasta bar is beautiful, as is the pizza place, italian and turkish restaurants. You only get one free meal in the al a carte restaurants and have to choose which one you want. I found this unlike other hotels i have visited where you get one visit to each of them during your stay. No biggie really tho as its only 5 â¬ each to go in again and its well worth it. Free wifi at every point of the hotel. Staff really nice , apart from one who took it upon himself to completly ignore our requests for drinks with our meal and actually made a point of turning away from us when we tried in vain to get his attention! Halil was fab tho n really looked after us! Wasnt happy with the room as we requested a twin room which we didnt get. As i booked direct with the hotel then i would expect to be told if this was unavailable. Bedding on the bed inadequate, small blanket which didnt cover the bed. Air con was dreadful, didnt cool the room. Pools were beautifully maintained but far to cold to swim in. There is a pier with cabanos on and beds but you have to pay 75â¬ a day extra for this! I found this very poor i must say when you have already paid quite a lot for your hol! It is sold as butler service with fresh fruit, drinks etc, and a daily newspaper.... But i can have fruit n drinks free on all inc so why would i want to pay more?! Very disappointed. Cleaners work very hard as do alot of the staff. The majority of other guests were pleasent and polite but some nationalities as usual were rude and viewed themselves as far superior! Note to these individuals.... Manners cost nothing!!!!!!! The quality of the wine is fab! We certainly had more than our fair share, think sum nights we were the entertainment! Mini bars in rooms are all inc and are refilled daily which was a nice touch. Safe is chargeable at 2â¬ per day, i always feel these should be free but thats just my opinion. Pick the season carefully, our last day on 23rd was struck by torrential rain and thunderstorms and this was the forecast for the coming week. Disappointed we couldnt keep the room later. We asked when we arrived but were told to ask the day before check out. We did this then were told come back on ghe morning of check out. Which we did , then were told no your room booked. Well surely you would ov known that on the previous 2 occasions!! Asked if any other rooms we could book, we curtly told no, we are fully booked. Im afraid i didnt feel this was entirely true? However overall we had a fantastic hol, thanku to all at liberty lara for your hospitality xMore
this is going to be a long review, in a nut shell its fantastic! if you would like to know more, then please read on :)
We stayed at the liberty hotel 16-30th september 2014 and havibng read a rew mixed reviews i was worried.
The transfer from the airport was quite quick, around 15-20 mins.
We arrived at the hotel and we were greeted by staff with a warm welcome, a cold glass of champagne, a non alcoholic cocktial four our daughter and a beautiful rose each. check in was increadibly fast and pur cases were promptly taken up to our room.
We stayed in room number 3128 on the third floor- wow what a room! it was spacious enough for the three of us, with a large balcony with a full see view. The room was spotless, and was continued to be cleaned to a very high standard, with beautiful works of art on the beds every day of our stay. The mini fridge had a good stock of ice tea, water, beer, coke and lemonaid- this was restocked daily and if we needed more we just asked at the lobby bar for cans/bottles for our room. the bathroom was clean and again penty big enough for us.
In the hotel
on the ground floor there is a clothing shop, a shoe shop, a handbag shop, a jewelry shop a general shop that sells papers postcards sweets etc. by the pool there is a shop that sells inflatebles for in the pool. there are four ala cart resteraunts, the jasmine resteraunt in the days there is a pizza tent, a southen fried chicken hut and a pasta bar .(i will go on about the food later!) theres a bar in the lobby, the silence bar, and the sunset bar.
Food and drink
I was dreading the food, i will eat anything, my husband and daughter are so fussy, to my amaizment they absolutely loved the food! every night they had something completly different and ate things i never dreamed they would! the food was always hot and fresh, there was no dried up food from sitting for too long, there was no warm wiltted salad it was all delicous and fresh! we were lucky enough to get a table our side for our evening meal everynigh except one. to do this i suggest you get down there for 6.45, how ever there are plenty of tables insdie and its spaceous and cool in there too.
We were lucky enough to samlple all of the ala cart's. theywere all delicous we highly recomend the bbq, its great fun! Our favourate was the italian, every course (there were six!) we thought the next couldnt possiblly get any better but it did!!
We didnt get round to eating lunch at the pasta bar, but people told us it was lovely, we were happy with a baked potatoe and chicken or a fesh made pizza or pancake..then the fruit cart would come round at 2pm to snack on..we would leave the pool at 4pm and get a cake and roll from the petisere (2.30-4.30) i honestly find it hard to belive there have been bad reviews on the food as its so nice. the tables were all cleard quickly too.
The entertainment encourage guests to join in the day and evening activities, but they dont force you to participate. the shows in the ampitheater are outstanding our daughter (7) absolutely loved them as did we, the costumes are all beautiful and i cant imagen the time and effort that has been put into creating these shows. when sitting in the ampetheater i would advise to take two seat pads, to sit on (obviously!) and one to lean back on.
All you brides to be, relax, dont stress your wedding is in the fantastic hands of Mustafa and Kerry!! We had two meetings to arrange everything that we wanted for our special day.Mustafa took us to the hospital ( driven by a lovely man called errin) to sighn a document, then he took us to the registras office- make sure you take your camera! it is in such a beautiful location, you wouldnt want to miss out on some breath taking pictures. On the way to and from the appointments, Mustafa will give you a wonderful tour of the area.
We chose to get married in the garden. this overlooks the beach, it had tall white tables with champagne on, white chairs with white orgasnsa ribbon on them, white gerberas on the floor of the aisle, and a beatiful white archway decorated with white organsa ribbon and gerberas. it was so much prettier than i had imagend! it really was perfect. We had our photos with the hotel photogropher his work is truely outstanding. We were going home the day after our wedding, and he worked all though the night to ensure our beautiful album was ready for us to take home. be warned its really really hard to narrow down the pictures, as every single one is perfect!! We decided to have a chocolate wedding cake, and it was beautiful and tastey too. We kept our turkish theme and ate with our guests in the turkish resteraunt. what a feast! every guest enjoyed every mouthful, including the children! our wedding was absolutely perfect. i must say a special thank you to the lovely Kerry for keeping me calm and assisting me on my walk from the hotel room to our venue!
The three names you will have read the most in all of these reviews are Osman, Mustafa and Kerry.
Osman is so very friendly, he can not do enough for you, he will ask your drink order once, the whole time your there, then he will know every time, at each meal what you want to drink!
Kerry, this lady works six days a week, and makes time for everyone who needs her. she was an absolute godsend on our wedding day, and several other occasions when i needed her advice, she even helped me chose a song to walk down the aisle to!
And finaly, Mustafa. he is probably one of the kindest, funniest, most genuine people you will ever meet. He is passionate about his job, and is dedicated to ensuring your holiday is first class, he always took time to talk to us, but always went the extra mile by asking our daughter what she had been doing and if she was ok.
In all honesty every single member of staff was polite,helpful, friendly and increadibly hard working.
For the children
there is One large childrens pool with a few water slides, we didnt use this pool as our daughter is a confident swimmer so preferd the regular pool.
The normal pool is massive! plenty of room for children (and adults) jumping in and people floating about with inflatables to still have thier own bit of space.
there are three large slides, the white slide is the slowest, the other two are very very fast, i was only brave enough to go on the white one, but our daughter loved them all, and the life gard at the top was very friendly, we saw him one day in antalya and he was genuinly happy to see us!
Our daughter is so quiet and shy, we didnt think she would join the kids club as she would be overwelmed. Ellie and Nicola took the time to get to know ellie before joining kids club, she then felt she knew them well enough to go, and she was so glad she did. She had a fantastic time joining in thier activities, and even had us paying for the extra evening sessions as she was having so much fun, the really really helped our daughter with her confidence!!
there is a mini disco on most nights, this wasnt really suitabole for our daughter, its fantastic for the under fives though :)
Outside of the hotel
There are lots of hotels along the lara strip and lots of shops too, however these local shops are hard to barter with as they know theres not much there. we suggest going into Antalya. catch the red bus (lc07) its 2turkish lira and it takes you into the town...its not the most fun journey in the world, the bus seats 21 but stands 69, and they cram all 69 passengers in. it takes about 45mins to get into antlya but i promise its worth it, weather you want the history of hadrians gate, the beautiful views at the harbour or you want to snap up some bargains in the bazzare' its definatley a place worth visiting.
we read a lot of reviews that people were not happy they had to pay for everything in euros. this is totaly untrue. everything is priced in euro yes, but if you ask how many lira they are happy to convert it for you. they accept euro, lira, american doller, and british pounds we paid for everything in lira and after bartering, had some real bargains!
The only negative thing i have to say, is that i think maybe the bins in the bathroom (for the toilet paper) could be a little bigger...thats it thats my only criticism!
we are definatly returning to the liberty hotel and look forward to seeing the staff again. the hotels motto is 'time to build friendships' and thats definatly true. we made life lng friends here with families and staff to.
thank you liberty hotelMore

Another Brilliant week
My husband and myself have just had yet another lovely week at the Liberty (7th - 14th October). We had our first experience in July 14 and we were so impressed we decided to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and my Birthday!!. We were greeted on arrival like old friends and because of our celebrations we were given a special gift of wine and fruit in our room.
We had a brilliant week, weather was fantastic, and the food was, as ever, exceptional !!!
We WILL be returning next year!!!
Thanks you again to all the lovely staff and the liberty, you are all so friendly and hardworking.
Best wishes and see you all soon
Michelle & Steve
