“Another fantastic holiday !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

We have just returned back from Barut Lara with our 2 children aged 12 and 15 years. As returning guests we were upgraded to a 2 room apartment which was great . The resort was spotlessly clean. We dined in each restaurent, all food was of a high quality and plentiful.The entertainment team were great but not over pushy. Special mention to Altan for keeping the teenagers entertained, he is a real asset!.Also Nuri and Ezgi were fantastic.Our son enjoyed excellent tennis lessons with Omer and has really progressed. My husband and Son enjoyed a few days of diving with the very professional Seurat ,of the Poseidon Diving Centre , situated just a few hotels down the beach.Julie from first Choice was very knowledgable and helpful ,as was the Cosmos lady!.
All in all a Fantastic holiday, can't wait to return next year to check out the refurb!

we had our family holiday for the third year on lara beach. we have stayed at the liberty hotel lara beach for 2 years before and have been very pleased with everything about it including fantastic food that caters very well for youngsters as well as adults.
we were very fortunate to meet a fantastic family on our coach transfer last year and spent the whole 2 weeks with them and we returned to lara beach the this year july 24th for 14 nights all toghether at the barut. the hotel was very well laid out and very clean everywhere,even the toilets
were immaculate. one big difference we noticed from other hotels was the vast amount of space around you,the pool was a good size and plenty of sun loungers for all and you did not feel crammed in. our hotel room was spacious enough for the 3 of us and had nice views from the side to the beach. our friends stayed in the residence area as they were 2 adults 2 children and had 2 bedrooms with bathrooms. the area has its own pool and breakfast bar in case you did not fancy the 5 minute walk to the main hotel restaruant.
the local bazzars are a good 15 minute walk in 40 degrees,i waited for a bus one morning and it did not stop and later found that the hotel has its own air conditioned cars that will drop you off and collect you for 5 euros each way.(best option).
the food at our disposal was fantastic and with the added 6 themed restaruants free for the 1st visit to each made a nice change. the animation team were cool and had some really fun games lined up for us through the day which remind me to thank nuri (tom&jerry) for the great
darts games and also ezgi & yalcin for their friendliness. the bar staff were so busy at all the bars and they seemed to work so effortlessly to keep us all topped up but obviously used to the pressure. i thank cumali,simhie,miray,serhat 007,ahmet,murhat and mehmet for the excellent service. the little things that these people provide in excess of the daily routine really make a difference and make your stay special. the weather from the 24th july started off at 31 celsius and by the second week upto 41,we noticed a difference in the pool when in got hotter.
to sum it up,clean,friendly,spacious,entertaining,helpful,enjoyable and definately a hotel to return to.

Room Tip: the standard room for 3 people is really nice. we met people who had emailed 2 months before travel...

Stayed at the Barut on 27th July 2013 with my wife & 13 year old daughter for two weeks, had an amazing time. We've been to other hotels along the Lara Beach strip & none ticked as many boxes as the Barut. Food was excellent, service was best we've ever received and the drinks were great too. Never had to wait for a waiter / waitress and the cleanliness of the place is amazing. I was apprehensive about being away for two weeks & getting bored but I could have easily stayed for three weeks as there's plenty to do if you want to participate.
The entertainment team were great and the games they organise are creative & great fun. We never visit the same place twice as there are so many places to see in the world, but as this holiday went so smoothly and we had such a fantastic time we've booked to go again next year.

Eveything in the hotel is exceptional, the room was huge (large residence) as was the balcony. It was always cleaned spotless every single day and was done before we returned late afternoon.
The pools are amazing, there is the aqua park which has the slides, there is the main pool, and the residence. All pools are always clean, never had a problem or accident.
The shows at night time, both the entertainment team and professionals were great to watch, I was never bored. Niether in the day time with the entertainment teams activities, there is always something that you'll enjoy, and each member of the team has a fun personality and it's nice when you find who you get along with. They are all friendly.
But thank you to ezgi and yalcin for being our friends and always getting us to join in, definitely made the holiday ten times better for us. Would not have been the same without you. Great members of the animation team.
The beach party and the gala night were both amazing nights, so much effort put into the gala night and the foam at the beach, along with the fire and fireworks was very enjoyable.

The food in the main restaurant is okay, there is a virety and enough for there to be something that everybody likes, however the alacart's are nicer to enjoy a meal in, and booking them is easy so book them when you can.

Overall there is nothing to down on. We don't think there is anything that can top this hotel.
Each year it becomes better and better, so excited to return in
2014!!

We returned to Barut Lara Beach with our Granddaughter we knew she would enjoy it. On our last visit we went in early July so expected it to be more crowded. This was not the case and did not feel crowded in the pool,restaurants and generally all around. On our arrival we were remembered that that we had been before and were given an upgrade to the suites on the 10th floor. This was much appreciated Thank-you. Everything was of a high standard, The pools the hotel and the food. Entertainment was very good and some good acts bought in. The entertainment team as everyone else work hard to please everyone. You still have to rise early to get a sun bed!! Ice cream was available during the day for all. The Gala Night was great . The table's were laid out with white cloths and fresh flower arrangements. It looked like a wedding down on the grass area.The acrobats were excellent and as promised the fireworks were the best. The hard work to set it up and then clear away was well worth. We found people to be friendly and there were more English people there this time. The guests that I spoke with did not complain about anything and seemed pleased with the hotel. I liked the fact it was a hotel without rules and notices telling you what you can and can't do.I felt people were respectful of that. I look forward to the big refurbishment due to take place over the Winter.

My husband and I had stayed in this hotel some years ago. The service, quality of food znd the overall atmosphere were indescribable. The hotel does not advertise itself all that much, but they have several awards. We'd highly recommend this hotel.
