returned from a week,all we can say is a fantastic holiday,everything was brilliant,room,food,pools are amazing!!The beach was good with a shallow area in the sea.Lifts are mesmerising.Best advise is to book the spa trip with the rep best Â£23 I spent!The market trip was a little disappointing with only 90mins in the market and not any bargains as bags are all 10 euros(think the haggling days are over)the boat trip after it was great.All in all will be back in a couple of yearMore
Great last minute break away, great surroundings
We came to Liberty's Lara Hotel at the end of April for a last minute break through Thomsons and were received with a great reception. Mustafa, the guest relations manager is a credit to the hotel and creates a welcoming environment as soon as you walk through the door. Check in is a smooth process (the champagne helps!) and the concierge deliver your luggage straight to your room.
Travelling with my boyfriend we had a room on the 1st floor which was compact and had a balcony facing the hotel next door, not the most stunning view but we are not the type of couple to spend much time in our room when on holiday. Fridge was refreshed most days and the room was cleaned to a good standard. The only downside was that despite having fabulous weather at over 30 degrees Celsius every day because it was still 'off-season' the air conditioning was only on between 4pm and 10pm which made the nights rather warm! We remedied this by dancing in the hotel club until 2am - good dj and the all inclusive drinks meant we had some great nights there.
As far as the rest of the hotel is concerned we were really pleased, although not all up and running due to the time of year, the staff at the bars, the wood fire pizza place and the slides were brilliant. The animacion team were fantastic and the activities are varied and fun - a little too close together if you want to try and do them all!
We enjoyed the food, especially the fresh salad and honey at breakfast straight from the honeycomb. The a la carte evening was fantastic, we tried the Turkish restaurant first and were so impressed we went to the Italian the night after - superb food if you find the all inclusive menu monotonous.
I think most people know what they are getting with an all inclusive and the Liberty Lara certainly does this really well. We are really pleased to have stayed there and will definitely return - especially as Manchester United won the FA cup we'll have something to celebrate with Mustafa when we see him again!More
I visited Liberty Lara in March and it was the perfect week get away. All the staff were friendly, the room was perfect, and the pools were amazing.
When first getting there, we were greeted with champagne and roses, which definitely look the edge off the ordeal of flying. And although they lost our luggage, it didn't put a dampener on the holiday as it was soon found, and due to the mistake they gave us some complimentary red wine and fruit.
The buffet hall was lovely for every meal, changing up the dishes each day. The friends we made there said they struggled to find things to eat. But I can't see how, as there was so much choice! Every night there was pasta and pizza, different meat dishes and salads.
I also recommend if you're young and/or travelling in a group, the downstairs club was brilliant and play basically all English music. Most nights we stayed up in the select bar to watch the entertainment, go to the dining hall for late night burgers, then stay in the club until 2am.
Overall this holiday was such a memorable experience and I would recommend this hotel to everyone.More
The best holiday we've ever had: single mom with two boys 5 and 14
Our first time to turkey and categorically the best holiday we've ever had, so much so that we plan to go back for Christmas to meet up with the friends we made during our stay.
The hotel has loads of regulars who return year after year and some stay for extended periods so it felt like there was a real and welcoming community already established, I can see this place easily becoming our go to getaway.
The hotel it's self is absolutely beautiful and beyond clean!
The food is amazing; especially if you're veggie. The bar is well stocked, the wine was excellent.
The hotel grounds are super safe so the kids can almost run free.
The demographic of the hotel is so diverse, it's wonderful. There's no overriding nationality or age group so you get wonderful interactions with people from all over the world, from completely different walks of life; which just makes for the best conversations and overall holiday experience.
But the Jewel in Liberty Lara's crown are the staff, all of them from the kitchen to the bar, from the front of house to the housekeeping, from the entertainment team to the management, especially Mustafa who is simply the most lovely man you could ever hope to meet and makes it his business that everyone gets the most from their stay.
We were so sad to leave, we'd only booked 7 days but wish we'd gone for 10. My two children cried as the coach pulled away when it was time to go home and we had all the friends we'd made including some staff waving us off.
We went out of season so not everything was open and the evening entertainment wasn't as all singing and dancing as it is in peak season but what we gained in that was a really peaceful holiday at our complete leisure at our own pace.
I haven't a single criticism. More
