We decided to go to Lara Beach for the new year break. We have done this several times before at different hotels and so were guided by tripadvisor. The number 1 hotel was not available so we booked for 5 nights at the number 2 the Delphin Impeial.
The hotel is really grand and after some discussion we were given a room that we had booked with a sea view, be warned they offer a side/seaview and due to the shape of the hotel you may have to lean out of your balcony to get a sea view in some of their rooms!
The main problem for us with this hotel was the quality of the bars and the quality of the food. The bars dispensed poor quality cocktails and lacked any atmosphere.
The buffet restaurant which we used 2 nights out of 5, the dishes were very Germanic. The Chinese a la carte restaurant was without a doubt the worst chinese food I have had anywhere in the world. The Italian alacarte was good.
The Gala New Years Eve dinner ,for which we were taken to the sister hotel next door which had a ballroom especially opened up for this function, up until the main course the food was really good, however the main course was grossly overcooked an uneatable.
We assumed that when we booked the room, we would automatically be booked for the Gala dinner. This was not the case. There was no information availale about the special booking required for the Gala night and when we discovered this we were told it was not possible as it was full and it took us two days of dealing with Guest services to get a booking at an extra cost of 50 euros each. I thought That Guest Services handling of this situation was appalling.
All in all although we had a good time ti was generally not satisfactory.
Also, would like to point out to other Brits that although there were over 2000 guests at the hotel we were the only two Brits there
I fail to see how this can be ranked number 2 in Antalya, we have stayed at 4 other 5 star all inclusives here and this is without a doubt the worst of them.
