Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. From May to October.
If you like to keep your evenings busy and meet new people then the entertainment programme has something for everyone. Whether you enjoy bingo, karaoke, perhaps a live show or putting your mind to the test and taking part in a quiz then the entertainment programme is one not to be missed.
All the previous reviews have said it all about the Lovely Liberty Lara and we endorse every five star review 10000% Every sector of staffing go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful magical holiday. Only problem - 2 weeks is not long enough....... Can't wait to experience some more of this Turkish Delight soon. Thank you for something memorable.

A great family experience.......
My wife, my 3 year old daughter and I stayed at the hotel in June 2014.
It was our first big family holiday by ourselves and we chose this hotel due to the breakdown we were shown by Thomson.
We were not disappointed.
The food available was great - the buffets, in particular, was the best buffet I've ever seen in my life. The stir fry station, specifically, was awesome. You pick what you want and they cook it fresh for you - as spicy as you like it. The food always tasted fresh and there was a great choice. There was also a pasta bar by the adult pool and the beach bar had a great choice of menu. Burgers, pizza, fajitas etc And as you're all inclusive, you can order more than one! YUM!
Sadly, choice of alcohol is limited - only the local beer is available. Spirits are also local choice only and there is no rum included! I'm a rum man, so this was annoying. But, it wouldn't ruin the holiday!
The entertainment is great. The Thomson Kids' Club is superb. The on site entertainers are fun and bubbly, too. We went during the World Cup and the hotel played every match (except the late ones as that would have been about 1am Turkish time), either by a big cinema screen outside or on a flatscreen in an inside bar. The evening entertainment in the ampitheatre is always fun, but was a bit loud. One child was taken to hospital with a perforated eardrum!
The pools are lovely and clean. There aree both adult and child slides. The child pool is nice and shallow. I would suggest that they make the outside of the kid's pool slip-proof as our daughter slipped over once and banged her head and we saw plenty of other kids go over too (you try stopping any kid running by the side of a pool!).
The beach is lovely an clean.
Other things, such as the on site gym and spa, we didn't get to use, so can't really comment.
It's only 10-15 minutes walk to the main shopping centres, but you really don't need to leave the complex. It's lovely.
The biggest downside for us was that one week into the holiday, our daughter got chickenpox and had to be confined to her room to stop it spreading (which I understand and appreciate) but it put a real dampner on our holiday. The hotel weren't at fault, of course, but it meant that we went home early because our daughter (who has skin problems anyway) couldn't enjoy the holiday anymore. She couldn't go to the Kids' Club - which she was gutted about! - or in the pools and we couldn't even put suntan lotion on her due to the spots.
So, a great family hotel with only a few downsides - no rum, ampitheatre too loud and kid's pool not slip-proof - we would return, and may do soon.
Thanks Liberty Lara (for the half of the holiday we COULD enjoy before the chickenpox!)More

first class hotel
We spent from 30/9/14 to 14/10/14 in this hotel and would like to say how impressed we were by the appearance of this hotel, cleanliness, hospitality, hygiene, all of which was first class we would award this hotel more than five stars if possible. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff from, the waiters, housekeeping to cooks and customer services all making sure that our holiday was a brilliant experience, food hygiene was very important to us and this was at all times, inside the resteraunt and out, was kept clean and continuously monitored.
Toilets were spotlessly clean with no toilet paper on the floors, automatic towel dispensers well stocked and always smelling nice, plenty of toilets around the hotel.
We loved the silent pool and all the different areas that cater for all ages, pools spotlessly clean , plenty of sunbeds, even though the hotel was full we never felt crowded as there was plenty to do for everybody.
The entertainment was very good and we enjoyed the evening shows and a special thanks to the entertainments chief who done a very good job of organising entertainment to keep all ages happy. Although we never used the facilities for disabled people we were impressed by the electric chair so disabled people can go in the pool and a special buggy to use in the sea. Berllini
Itallian restaurant was a pleasure to experience, a touch of luxury. There was so much food to choose from always looking tasty and well presented with fresh food cooked in front of you if you preferred be prepared to add inches to your waistline if your not careful.
We were impressed with the ability to help yourself with bottled water from the fridges in all the food areas, very good to encourage people to hydrate in that hot climate, we loved the fresh pizzas in the yorak tent and the Turkish pancakes freshly cooked were delicious.
The rooms were kept clean, beds comfortable and mini bar stocked every day, tea making facilities and satellite t v in the mirror(nice touch) a reasonable view of the sea although advertised as limited view, was quite a reasonable view, all in all we had a very good holiday and would return and recommend to anybody, this was all we could ask of an holiday and would like to express our thanks to everybody involved.More

Fantastic all inclusive Resot
I stayed with my family at Liberty Hotel Lara for a week and I have to say the hotel is fantastic, the kids loved it and did not want to leave. This was the first time I stay in all inclusive hotel and I was a little hesitant but they surprised me. The food is excellent, so much choices and not crowded; for those diet conscious, although there is diet food on offer but be aware, it is too tempting. The facilities are superb and entertainment is excellent. Although we had an incident with one of the entertainment staff, we complained and it was handled professionally. Overall, I highly recommend the hotel.More
We returned to the hotel for a two week holiday after first visiting in March this year. Very impressed with all aspects of our stay as everything was now up and running.. Choice of food is amazing and beautifully presented. Great attention to detail on the Gala evenings when all the seating area is transformed with lovely white chair covers with chiffon bows relating to the particular event be it Turkish night or Black and white theme night.
All of the staff are so courteous and eager to go the extra mile to serve you. It is not possible and would be unfair to single out any one member of staff as they are all great.
The beach cabanas for hire are a must. personal attention from 10.30 to 4.30 for a reasonable charge, what a good day. Rooms serviced every day and fridge restocked together with water, tea and coffee facilities as well.
A special mention to Mustapha and Parna (guest relations) Also Kerry our Thompson rep who is so helpful.....Sebhatin Asi is always available to speak to should you wish. There are many more much larger hotels in Lara beach than Liberty,s but for us the the motto of this hotel "Time to build friendships" says it all. PS. Forgot to mention Hulk, Emery and Co. doing a brilliant job. ( hope to see you all again). Brian,Joyce, Jim and Ann
