Reviewed 26 May 2014

We stayed two nights in May while on a tour. Nice room with large balcony. Very clean, great mattress, TV with many good options for English, large divided bathroom with good "rainfall" shower, etc. If you are not in the main building then you are likely to be a long walk from the lobby. Nice pools. The resort is "all inclusive" and includes about six restaurants (Turkish, Italian, Indian, BBQ, etc.) besides the large breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet restaurant. We had an excellent meal with great wine in the Olive restaurant (Italian). Nice beach on the Mediterranean. Lots of activities and entertainment options. Several nice shops on the lower level.

Antalya is kind of a Turkish Miami Beach with a little Las Vegas thrown in. Very popular with Russians (many shop signs on the beach strip are in Russian). While there leave some time for being away from the hotel (the combination of visiting the ruins of Perge in the morning and then the Archeology Museum in Antalya in the afternoon is a memorable experience).

Room Tip: Try to stay in the main building if possible (but you'll enjoy wherever you are in this hotel).

I booked this hotel on the basis that there main priority seemed to be making children have a wonderful experience, however this is the only thing that let's this hotel down. The hotel is amazing with a lovely beach, great staff (in most cases), very clean and no expense spared with entertainment. However the mini club and their staff were a huge disappointment. Like most parents my children are my main priority and I love to see them have a good time, however other than the mini disco on an evening the mini club staff barely acknowledged the children. Some kids seemed to get preferential treatment and I'm not sure if this is down to what country they were from or if they were left in the mini club for long periods of time but my children were not engaged with on any occasion. In previous hotels I've stayed in these particular teams made it their duty to introduce themselves, learn kids names and be friendly and outgoing all of the time, however the mini club staff in this hotel don't appear to be remotely interested other than the one hour on a night when they will try and round all the kids up for the mini disco. In fact the adult entertainment team and waiting staff are much more child friendly! Get this bit right Barut Lara and you will have families returning time and time again.

Dear D Lara,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so happy to hear that you liked our Hotel beach and staff. We are so disappointed, however, to hear that our Kids Club didn’t meet your expectations.

Rest assured that your feedback was addressed to our Executive team and we are working very hard to take immediate precautions to make sure all of our guests are very happy. Looking forward to welcome you again at Barut Lara Hotel in the near future.

Yours Sincerely,

** I know this a long review(!) but its worth the read, honestly :)

Just returned last night and have to say had an amazing holiday. The hotel was fantastic. Located only 15 minutes away from the airport, the beauty is transfers didn't take long at all!
I went with my husband and two year old daughter, we arrived very late at night - but even so checking in was a breeze and we were able to get some dinner before we went to sleep.
The hotel itself has a modern European style feel to it after having a recent refurb and is clean and very comfortable. Lots of different places to relax in the lobby and reception area.
Its absolutely perfect for children as they provide 'everything' from bath baths, bottle warmers, bibs,cribs, baby sponges and even a monitor! There is even a separate baby area for children to eat where everything is available for mum to make baby dinners and warm milk and where children have low tables and chairs.
The pools are great too, not too deep- a few water sides for the thrill seekers, a baby pool, a large central shape-free pool and indoor pool too.
Restaurants on site have different menus and need to be booked a day in advance. (but you can always eat at the main buffet restaurant which has an amazing array of foods, salads, desserts and even a 'diet menu'.) There really is something for everyone.
There is a kids club which my daughter loved- swings, slides a fun play area and a recreation area for arts and crafts. The nursery staff only look after children over 4 years old though and the only issues I had was that they didn't speak very good English which was a big language barrier.
Wi-fi is brilliant around the entire complex...even the beach
There are lots of activities throughout the day, archery, football, yoga, aerobics, but a lack of watersports. The Entertainment team put on a show every night for the children but it starts at 9.30pm which is very late and the noise level is too loud so I didn't go to many.
The rooms are very clean, very comfortable and spacious. The rainfall shower is a plus(!), minibar is stocked daily - best rooms are with the sea view else you have to stare at the hotel next to Barut Lara which just looks like a building with scaffolding on it.
The beach is not sand at all its a shingle beach but that didn't spoil our fun in all honesty!
All in all nothing bad to say about the hotel, had a lovely experience and I wish we could have stayed for longer :)

Room Tip: sea view or side sea view!

Without doubt , this is the best hotel I have ever visited , I really don't know where to start ! The staff are amazing , especially the animation team ,they make you feel that you are their best buddies and I have to commend the staff serving drinks and food ! They are extremely tentative and they genuinely look happy in their work . No stone is left unturned in the dedication to make your stay wonderful , please do not take any notice of negative comments written in the past , anyone who doesn't like the Barut Lara ,,,, doesn't like life ! I will be back next year , and the year after , ,,,,,,,,,,,,

My husband and I recently returned from Turkey. This was our first visit to Turkey and we're glad that choose this hotel. Very nice rooms,huge list of different activities / facilities, great place to visit with kids due to lots of swings(even in the beach there are swings under the roof ). Animation team also the best, it would be wrong not to mention Ezge, Tugra and Yalcin as we had a lot of fun with them.
We both want come back to that hotel. :)
