Liberty Hotels Lara Beach  

With a clutch of restaurants and enough swimming pools to rival a waterpark, it’s no wonder this hotel is so highly rated with TripAdvisor reviewers.

The pool scene at this beachfront hotel deserves a mention, with extras like whirlpool jets and waterslides. There’s an impressive restaurant count as well, including a handful of à la carte venues.

The hotel is really stylish – bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and wooden floors, while the lobby is covered by a huge glass ceiling.

Relaxing stay

As we drive towards the hotel, we passed by many other hotels along Lara and they looked so impressive. My boys get very excited. When we finally saw Liberty Hotel, we were a bit disappointment that it looks so much smaller (3-4 times) than it's neighboring hotels. But when we stepped into the hotel, it looks clean and nice and we are happy with the place. It meets what we need. We went during winter season, so there wasn't much activities going on. We were able to do some sports on our own and enjoyed the facilities. We played beach volley, soccer and basketball. I love the all-inclusive concept and we can easily grab a drink when we are thirsty after the sports. If the weather was good, i understand they did organised the outdoor sports for hotel guests to played together, that would be great. Unfortunately, we were not so lucky with the weather. However, the staffs were lively, polite and friendly. We also enjoy relaxing afternoon drinking coffee at the outdoor terrace. The buffet is very good with lots of food and choices. We have to pay 5 euro additional to eat at the ala carte restaurant. We tried to book the Italian but it's fully booked for 2 nights. So I will recommend you to book early. We would like to try their fine dining and left with the turkish restaurant option, so we go ahead with that. The food at turkish ala carte restaurant is good but fantastic, but paying 5 euro for a fine dining feel and atmosphere is definitely worth the value. We enjoyed the dinner very much. We booked a standard room for 2 person and another large standard room for 4 person. Think they tried to let us have 2 rooms together, they also gave a large standard room for the standard room we booked. It's low peak season and they can afford to do this, but it is definitely very thoughtful and we appreciated that. I saw some of the photos have nice towel creations and was hoping to see what i get but I did not have that during our 2 nights stay. It is a "good to have" for a plus but will not get any minus for not having. Though the hotel scale looks small from outside compared to many others, it has most of the facilities to meet our needs and very value for money. I believe other seasons will be even better with the outdoor pools and slides open and other activities organised by the hotel. I will definitely recommend this hotel for it's value.More

FANTASTIC LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY

Well what can we say, we have traveled many times before and although this was our very first holiday to Turkey we can honestly say this hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed at. The cleanliness everywhere was outstanding, it was one of the most spotless places we have ever seen.Our room was cleaned to a high standard with towels/sheets being changed everyday.Many thanks to all the cleaning staff. The food was outstanding, such a choice and despite other reviews we found it all hot. There is something for everyone including vegetarian and special dietary needs. The chefs and restaurant staff really go out of their way to produce excellent food and services. We were blessed with the weather for 4 days and managed to eat outside the large buffet restaurant which was lovely and gave you a feel of what the hotel would be like during the spring/summer months. Although a lot of the facilities/beach area in December are closed for the winter it did not prevent us from having a wonderful time, there was still plenty to do. The outdoor adult pool is heated so we managed to swim in the pool during the holiday and the indoor pool is excellent especially as the weather changed at the end of the holiday and the entertainment staff went out of their way to arrange various things to do. The walk along the strip outside the hotel takes around 20-25 minutes and is an excellent way to view all the other hotels in many different designs and plenty of shopping malls for all your designer clothes and leather goods. We can honestly say that if you decide to stay at this hotel you will not be disappointed, all the staff associated with the hotel go out of their way to make you feel so welcome and cannot do enough for you to make sure you have a very enjoyable holiday. Mr Sabahattin Asi your staff are a credit to you and please can you thank all the chefs, waiters, entertainment staff, bar staff and especially Candy who went out of her way to make sure we were alright, cleaners, maintenance staff who were busy sweeping up the water after the storms, all of them made our holiday a truly memorable one. We would however just like to make one suggestion which we experienced during our weeks stay and that was because the weather had changed there was a large family group who used the indoor pool and had very large inflatable animals with them, but this unfortunately did hamper other people using the pool to have a swim. The pool is not really big enough for these items and it would be better for other users if these were not permitted in the indoor pool. Unfortunately due to long haul holidays next year we shall not be able to return until 2016 but we will definitely be returning to this hotel around April/May 2016 to experience all the facilities when they are open. Many thanks again for such a fantastic time and look forward to meeting all the staff again soon. Many best wishes. Carol & Keith Pryke (Room 1122)More

Good if the Price is Right

Our stay here did not begin well. On arrival at our room, we were surprised to find it did not contain any easy chairs, despite the website photo of the 'Standard Double with Partial Sea View' showing that at least one should have been included. Reception could not do anything immediately, it being rather late in the evening, but promised action the following morning; what we got the following day was a tired, dirty, torn dining chair, with a hand towel placed on the seat to cover the stained fabric! We took our complaint to Guest Relations, and this time received a much better reaction - within an hour, two easy chairs appeared in our room, so problem solved, (eventually). One rather unusual, but positive feature of the room furniture was that all the cupboard drawers were of the 'soft close' type - meaning that it is unlikely that you will be awoken by a careless 'clang' from next door. The housekeeping service was consistently excellent, with our room being kept clean and the bathroom always well stocked with soaps/shampoos etc. The grounds of the hotel are mostly taken up with a large swimming pool complex, including water chutes, and stretch down to the beach; during our stay the weather was generally too cold for any of these facilities to be used. The overall impression of the grounds was that individual features such as bars, cafes etc looked rather tired and needed attention. A very positive feature is that there is excellent, free wifi coverage in all areas of the hotel, including rooms and restaurants. This hotel is an A.I. establishment, situated on what has become the 'hotel strip' on the coast to the east of Antalya city and has been tastefully renovated recently to offer reasonably good standards of accommodation, (easy chairs notwithstanding), though the standard rooms are a little on the small side. The reception area is situated in an atrium extending 8 floors high, with most rooms opening onto open galleries, giving views down to the ground floor, (see photo). This arrangement can cause problems in the evening as the noise from the bar echoes around the building and can be clearly heard in the rooms; light sleepers may find this a problem but we reduced the sound level by using a bath towel to block the 1/2" gap at the bottom of the room door. There are some rooms which do not open onto galleries which should be quieter; these are in the ranges xx02 to xx24 and xx01 to xx17. The food on offer is generally very good with a wide selection of starter and main courses, and an exceptionally good offering of desserts, however, the ambience of the main restaurant can be poor. We stayed here in the low season, (late November/early December), when it was too cold to dine outside, and this forced guests to all eat in the covered restaurant area. Early in our stay, as the hotel was operating at nearly full capacity, this meant that serious overcrowding took place and introduced a 'canteen' feeling to proceedings. Certainly, there was no opportunity for the ladies to dress specially for the occasion, and arriving more than 15 minutes after the opening time for dinner sometimes meant a struggle to find a table, or sharing a table with strangers. (Later in our stay, the number of guests fell somewhat and so finding a table became much less pressured, but also we noticed that the variety of dishes on offer was reduced to match the lower demand.) The waiters were all hard working, polite and helpful. The house wines, (Turkish brand 'Majestik'), were acceptable, as was the local beer, ('Efes Pilsner'). Imported brands are not included in the A.I. programme and are chargeable. Both the a la carte restaurants, (Italian and Turkish), were excellent as to food quality, service and atmosphere. The clientele during our low season stay consisted mainly of Germans, (80%) with the balance being made up of English, Russians and Turks. Most guests were elderly/retired, with a sprinkling of young couples with pre-school children. Everybody got along well. In the local area there is not much to do; turning left on the main road outside the hotel leads to a shopping area, (about 1 mile away), where the Sultan's Bazaar and the Attapark malls offer the usual mix of cheap t-shirts and fake goods. Across the road, and somewhat closer to the Liberty Lara, (about 1/2 mile, and opposite the Sherwood and Royal Wings hotels), a large white shopping mall, the Antalium Premium Mall, offers a more up-market experience, and has a very large shop 'Viavalenti' in the basement area offering leather coats and jackets of good quality, design and price, (if you are prepared to bargain hard, even to the extent of pretending to leave the shop empty handed). If you turn right along the main road, there is nothing but a succession of hotels, ending with the Mardan Palace. We only used this route for walking exercise, (about 4 miles return). The nearest big, modern mall with international brands is 'Terracity' reached by a 30 minutes bus ride on the LC07 line. (The fare is always €1 and the service is frequent on modern, air conditioned vehicles. Always have €1 or €2 coins available as one driver refused to accept €0.50 coins. Sit on the nearside of the bus and you will easily spot it.) In conclusion, if you are looking for genuine 5* luxury and style, or a romantic get-away, this is not the hotel for you. The Liberty Lara hotel is designed for the requirements of the mass tourism market and sets out primarily to attract families with children during the holidays of high season. On the positive side, all the staff were very professional and friendly, but special mention must be made of the guest relations team, Sabrina, Parna and Mustafa who went out of their way to solve problems and help us. Their contribution meant we really enjoyed our stay here and we would absolutely recommend that anyone wanting to go into the old town of Antalya, (the Kaleisi), should consult with them first for a full roundup of what to see, maps, and how to get there. Would we return to the Liberty Lara? Definitely - if a good price could be had.More
