The Liberty Hotels Lara Beach has four swimming pools. There’s a shallow pool for children, an ‘activity’ pool with waterslides and a quiet pool that comes with its own restaurant and bar. Stealing the limelight, though, is the main pool, which snakes its way through the centre of the complex. Plus, when you want to swap poolside for beachside, there’s a sandy strip just footsteps away.
You’ve got five restaurants to choose from. The Italian, Bellini, is a favourite with guests, so it’s worth booking a table in advance. For a slice of old Turkey, head outside to the Yoruk Tent. It’s a traditional affair serving up ‘gozleme’ – savoury pastries cooked on the griddle. Simply pick your filling and watch it being made in front of you. And for sundowner drinks it’s got to be the Sunset Shack.
Last but not least, the hotel has a Thomson Kids’ Club, which means it’s a great choice for families.

Left with one regret, we should have booked for a longer stay
To be honest over the past 3/4 years we have been fortunate to stay at some great hotels in outstanding locations and it has to be said that the Liberty hotel managed to surpass all of them in one way or another. It's difficult to say something that has not already been said by many of the great reviews listed by our fellow travellers. I could bleat on about the wow factor as you first enter the hotel, the rooms are just about perfect or maybe talk in depth about the restaurant quality freshly made pasta available at lunch time, or quite possibly some of the best choices and quality I have ever encountered in any all inclusive buffet, the exceptional service and people is what really makes this hotel stand out from the crowd. My advise to you by all means read as many reviews as you like but based upon my stay you will be left wanting more, we were and we are now planning on returning later in the yearMore

This hotel was simply amazing from the friendly staff, clean rooms and the excellent choice and range of food. We have just arrived back from a week here during the easter holidays and are wishing we could still be there now!! We arrived at the hotel after midnight and were quickly shown to our rooms with no problems and with a young very lovely bag boy, shortly after bringing our bags. The food here was fab everyday with grilled food and stir-frys served outside on a daily basis but ranging with tastes and spices. We really enjoyed eating outside especially at lunch with the sun shining on us. The pools are very clean with plenty of toys and slides to keep the kids entrained. The bars located around the hotel do wonderful cocktails especially 'MATE KY' who is at the beach bar, who was always happy to chat. The cleaning ladies of the rooms were wonderful too with pretty towel decorations almost everyday. Another fab member of staff was HULK from animation team who was always playing with the kids or simply just making people smile. Overall is was a truly fantastic hotel and we will be sure visiting it again!! Thank you to everyone who made our stay amazing.More

This was my first time staying at the hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The service is flawless, the friendliness and kindness of the staff is impeccable! If anything is of issue, it is solved instantly by a member of staff, that are easy to access. There are limitless choices of food available throughout the day, and never a problem to find ready set tables before dining. The views from the balconies and rooms are beautiful & the facilities provided beat any other place i've seen. The cleanliness and welcoming vibe from all staff also guests, was lovely. I had an extremely wonderful experience here and would definitely come again!More

My first time flying, my first time abroad and my first time in an establishment of this calibre. Considering that we went 'out of season', the standards in the hotel were well beyond expectation. Not only was this a full set of firsts for me, but for several members of my family also; so their experiences must be considered. I could go on and on giving a moment by moment account of the trip, however, I will try to stick to the main points that are relevant to this review. On arrival, I must be honest, my breath was taken away, as was members of my family. Right from the moment we entered the most impressive foyer, the staff could not have tried any harder to ensure that we had a wonderful experience. As we sipped our glasses of champagne, try as we might, we failed to absorb the true splendour of the Liberty Hotels Lara. As I turned around and around there was some new sight to behold. With a head that was spinning from the events of this first day, we registered for our rooms and set down our heads for a well needed sleep. Breakfast...breakfast...this was like nothing I had ever seen in my 46 years. Once again, my head was spinning from the many sights that my eyes beheld. Yes I will admit, I walked around an awful lot that first morning, before I settled on something to eat; returning as many times as we liked. We all sat at an impeccably laid table, surrounded by palm trees and several feet away from the pool. There were members of staff everywhere, all there to see to it that all your needs were met, instantly. I do recall being pleasantly surprised when a small bird landed on our table and a rescued cat drifted between the table legs. Pleasantly fed, it was time to begin the routine ritual of relaxing. Whether it be fun down at the beach, a hammock swaying in the gentle breeze, a lounger by one of the four pools or as most of us chose, meandering in the pool. I never got tired of hearing my son utter the words "this is the life dad". For it was; this was a different life, miles from anything I had ever encountered. Our room was not ostentatious, it was adequate. Somewhere to keep our belongings and lay our heads at night. What more do you need from a room. There was more to the room like free slippers, balcony and other stuff but my purpose here is to equate yourselves with the more, shall we say, important points. It was by an unfortunate occurrence that I experienced another side not really seen by many, I hope. I was not really paying attention while walking barefoot on a wet surface carrying a huge inflated ring, I slipped and fell. Dazed and shook up it was made apparent to me, by my family, the speed with which help was by my side, including a doctor. This was my first real encounter with Guest Relations Manager, Mustafa. His heart and soul are Turkish, however, he is educated in the ways of multiple other cultures. He speaks with a well practiced clarity and pronounces his english better than some english people that I know. Here we have another member of the extensive staff that is willing, and will not stop, when going that extra mile for the comfort and enjoyment of the guests. I do thank all of the staff, seen and unseen, for the holiday of a lifetime. As well as Mustafa and his colleagues in Guest Relations, I would like to personally thank 'alwight mate' Osman for waiting on us the whole week. One final thanks goes to the head chef that makes amazing 'soft boiled' eggs. My wife wishes to thank the man that polished her boots for her. You cannot get a service like this in the UK. There's so much more that I could say about this gem of a hotel but I think I should call it a day for now. Liberty Hotels Lara, we will be back...More
