First of all I apologise as this is going to be a bit lengthy but I needed to give my opinion to all aspects.
I seem to be a minority reading reviews and speaking with guests here but I feel the hotel is very standard and average as it's the basic and little things it is missing. I wouldn't class it as 5* premier and a 4* at most. However speaking with guests they say it is the best place ever and always return... Not sure why if I'm honest.
The hotel has massive potential, for example, use of all the space, parts of the hotel seem never used. A shisha bar? Music to be played on the terrace or balcony or just more than one option evening entertainment to utilise the space this hotel has? An adults only restaurant, there is an adult pool. Why not adult restaurant. People to come round and offer drinks throughout the day? This never happened. Only 1 day at breakfast were we offered tea or coffee!
Just take a few lira Incase want to go out. Mostly euros here. Not English Â£. Airport will take anything. Good duty free I found.
Entertainment team were really good. Worked hard and didn't push you into anything. Evening shows were sometimes awkward ...Comedy show.... But stupidly funny. But any young girls.. Be careful with the team...
They look nothing like the photos. We had a twin room with limited sea view. The photos suggested 2 king size beds and room big enough for 3 people. How 3 people could occupy a room I have no idea. I can't class the beds even as single. They were small. And sea view.... You had to lean over the balcony and turn your head a big left. We asked to be moved. I have never ever asked to be moved before. But it just wasn't what I expected. And no duvet or sheet. Just a towel for that? Next room same size but view was a little better. We settled for that. Bathroom is small. Shower over the bath.
Cannot fault, admittedly some days were better than others. Best part of the stay and better in the day. It looks amazing. It tastes amazing. The restaurant is on -1 floor. The same floor as the hall for the welcome meeting. This is also how you get outside to the pools. pizza bar, snack bar, chicken and wedges bit, a Waffle House and ice cream. Was nice. Went to Italian and was good. But was on the understanding there was more than the Italian and Turkish up for offer for a la carte. Im A fussy eater but couldn't fault the food. However cats they have on site do like to join you. I'm allergic so not so fun.
We did a trip through Thomson "Antalya shopping" don't bother. The market one would seem better on reflection. As it was just to a jewellery shop then old town Antalya. Not exactly shopping. Just sightseeing with small selection shops. Shop at hotel good for bags and converse and not pushy but can barter. Fair prices paid. He was a nice man.
Nice relaxing holiday but was expecting 5 star premier and I didn't feel I got that. Another review suggested if we have had better then where ... Jaz mirabel beach in sharm, reef oasis blue bay in sharm and riu caribe in cancun. These hotels are amazing and for the ones in Egypt for the same price I feel I got more service and 5* treatment.
Wouldn't come back to turkey and if I did I would be inclined to stay next door at the baia Lara as a lot of guests from there we spoke to seemed very happy. Or the other next door "holiday palace" I think. Not sure if it is an English hotel( people say mainly Russian) but they sounded like they were having a ball every night. Lot of older people, I'm 24 and seemed to be a minority of 20-30's here. No groups as no night life mainly couples and odd friends. Not really much to do in the day. More

September 2015 visit
My wife, daughter and I stayed here for a week in September and can say we had an excellent time. The staff were as friendly and helpful as any hotel I have ever stayed in, waiting, bar, housekeeping and front of house staff always had a smile and a warm smile. For an all inclusive hotel the food was of a very high standard with an excellent choice of eating places. The speciality restaurants are exceptional and each one well worth a visit. The numerous pools, pool areas and beach area were spotless and well maintained. I would highly recommend the Liberty Hotel Lara.More

What a Liberty !!!!!
Just returned from this hotel for seven nights starting 25th September through Thomsons . Was told straight away that three of the al a carte restaurants would be closed and only the Turkish on the Thursday would be open. With the other being the Italian. After paying the full summer price was told that the winter season had started!! The food in the main buffet restaurant we found below average and the outside section in the evening was very rustic to say the least. So very disappointed that the other restaurants were closed. We were then told we could only book one
al a carte the other at a charge of five euros each!! What a Liberty!! The drinks were disappointing .Even the so called branded drinks ie Gordens gin ,Johnny Walker whiskey etc seemed to be weak in alcohol content. Top shelf brands you would have to pay for. Our rooms were in need of a referb .Only one bottom sheet on the beds with a small blanket ?? Carpets around the hotel corridors were awful, absolutely filthy. We struggled to get any kind of service at breakfast. Also no drink service outside during the day around the pool or the beach. Lunch was the best for food .Especially the pasta house where the food was good and the service. It seemed that there was a shortage of staff all round and the ones that were left were not that happy. One exception was Akmed the waiter in the evening outside .Bathroom towels were also old, thin and hard . For a small hotel and after reading previous reviews we were very disappointed . We have been to other five star hotels along Lara beach and I would rate this only a three star.More
Nice hotel, far from 5 star though :(
My husband, our 2 year old daughter and I, are currently staying at this hotel. We are on our 6th night of a 11th night stay.
Firstly I will start with the positives:-
Food is fantastic, plenty of choice. Every night we have had a great meal.
Highly recommend the Turkish al a carte restaurant. Food is amazing.
Most of the staff are friendly.
Entertainment staff produce excellent shows on an evening. Really enjoyed the Mongolian acrobats.
I emailed the hotel to let them know we were celebrating our anniversary. They responded saying that they would upgrade our room if they had availability. We checked in and was given a tiny room overlooking the bins! I complained to the reception staff who said I could upgrade to a better room for 330 euros. Didn't understand why they would email saying they will offer us a complimentary upgrade when they clearly had no intention of doing so.
We upgraded the room and was given one on the noisy side of the hotel, where you can hear the hotel next door entertainment till 11.30pm every night. Not great with a 2 year old!
The rooms are in desperate need of updating.
You can only visit 1 of the al a carte restaurants if your staying for 11 nights. Otherwise you have to pay an extra 5 euros per person if you want to go again.
Some of the activities at kids club you have to pay for.
You have to pay extra for certain cocktails.
On 2 occasions our room hasn't been cleaned by the maid. We are out of our room from 930 till 2pm each day, so can't see any reason why they haven't been cleaned in that time frame.
We return to our room at 2pm so our daughter can have a nap out of the sun.
We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and unfortunately this one doesn't come close for the reasons I mention above. We're having a nice time, but think this should be marketed as a 4 star to reduce peoples' expectations.
I wouldn't return to this hotel. Think they are better hotels in Lara.
The gym is small and needs better air conditioning.
