“Are 5th visit”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We love this hotel!! We have been going there for the last 5 years and it is always an amazing holiday. Food is always different and well cooked with lots of choice. The entertainment / animation team are excellent and always do a great job with all the activities and shows. Hotel is immaculately clean. The rooms are always cleaned thoroughly. Can't wait for next year!! The spa team do a very professional and good job.

Room Tip: A sea view room is worth the extra money

If your like me a first timer to this place and not sure whether to book or not then I will say book your holiday, you wont be disappointed. Me, My wife and my seven year old daughter stayed here for 10 days between 17th of May and 27th May 2014.

Firstly let me tell you a few negatives. The hotel building doesn't have the WOW factor. On first impressions I wasn't too impressed. It doesn't have a large balcony with a view over the whole resort and a beautiful view of the sea. and unless your right near the beach you cannot tell you are on a hotel that's on a beach front. Jacuzzi in the spa should be free to use and not charged.

That is the only negatives in 10 days I could find everything else was fantastic.

A La Carte: unlimited use and we booked a different one nearly every day and guest relation were excellent. You can also book A La Carte breakfast as much as you want to :)
But even the buffet restaurant were good and plenty of choice for food.

Unlimited ice cream all day long.

Entertainment team fantastic and they really try and get everybody involved.

Kids Club: The best i have ever seen and i stayed in a lot of All inclusive hotels in Turkey. The have a full week of programs to choose from and we would drop our daughter to the ones we thought she would enjoy. Special thanks to Maryam and Bonus from Zaynab for making sure she had a fantastic time.

This is also the only hotel I know where they had a dedicated customer service lady who walk around the hotel asking all the guests and how they can improve things.

What really stands this hotel out from others is the Service you receive from all the staff members. genuine service with a smile. All the staff actually look and happy and its the only hotel I have been to where they come and ask you before even your drink is finished if you want another. Although the quality of the food is excellent In the A La Carte I do wish they would make the Italian restaurant menu more Italian and the Asian restaurant more Asian etc etc. I felt sometimes the menu was just international. it should be more themed. too many restaurants offering steaks!!!

indoor pool: heated salt water pool - Excellent - You will love it.

So finally I would say you wont be disappointed with this hotel whether your returning the 10th time or your a first timer.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view if your like me not staying the he main building.

We are a family of 5 and have just had the best holiday at the Barut Lara. I've never had an urge to return to a hotel but I would love to come back here. It's a lovely hotel, absolutely spotless. It's modern, bright and constantly maintained. The grounds are beautiful, well kept lawns, bright coloured flowers. It's a pleasure to walk around. The short walk to the beach is lovely, and if you feel like being lazy they pick you up in a golf buggy to and from the beach!
Our room was great. Family of 5 garden suite. A lovely bathroom with great shower and a bath, separate loo, floating sink , a huge mirror, hair dryer, toiletries, plenty of towels.
The kids had their own room with tv, wardrobes, drawers and a door to the balcony. We had a big bed with choice of pillow ( feather for me!) air conditioning, a desk, tv, mini bar stocked every day with beer, water and soft drinks and milk. There are also tea/coffee and a kettle. Lovely balcony with doors from our room aswell. The little man that cleaned our room was lovely, nothing too much trouble. Folded your pj's! He left it spotless every day.
The food and drink was fantastic. For once in an all inclusive they serve good wine! The white is a Sauvignon, the red a Shiraz and the fizz is like a good prosecco. You can get branded spirits and even the soft drinks are the real thing(proper coke from bottles). They serve nuts with the drinks and you get glasses at the bars. Only plastic round the pools.
We mainly ate in the buffet. Lots of choice, very fresh. Lovely fruit , salad and bread. They cook some foods outside, chicken, lamb, turkey. Barbecue style. Great desserts. Waiters serve you drinks to the table and are constantly cleaning away dirty dishes. It's very well run and doesn't seem like a canteen like some hotels. We ate at the A La Carte 'olive' which was Italian and was gorgeous. Try the veal! The pools are lovely, so clean and never busy. On to the entertainment, what can I say. The team are brilliant. They all are so friendly and fun. They work hard as a team and talk to every guest. They run great games, activities and get up dancing with you every night.
Nemo, you are the best! Our kids loved you, so did we! So funny and friendly. Tiger from the maxi club was also great and our son Finlay had the best time with you. Yalcin and his gorgeous wife Ezgi were great. So friendly and encouraging people to join the fun but never pushy. Julian my partner did shooting with Yalcin and thoroughly enjoyed it. A lovely guy. Ezgi did 'water gym' which was great, not your usual boring aqua aerobics. The shows in the amphitheatre were good, it was lovely to sit out and some of the acrobat shows were amazing. All in all I cannot fault the hotel.
I never got my Turkish massage but the spa looked lovely. Don't listen to negative comments.
It's lovely. We will return. 5 stars definitely.

Room Tip: Family garden suites are a good size overlooking the gardens.

Nothing to complain about, it was a perfect holiday with my husband and my family.
the weather wasn't that good on the first day, so we have to stay inside the hotel, which was really good.
the hotel staff really helpful with smile always.
The food was good.
We tried 2 of "A LA CARTE RESTERANTS":
1- Turunç > highly recommended
2- Akdeniz Resterant > not recommended at all
The sea, the beach, swimming pools, bars... was all great.
No need to go out the resort, you can enjoyed your vacation as long you want.
Deserve No. 1 for 2014
keep going Barut Lara...

We are half way through our weeks holiday at the barut lara and I have to say I am more than a little disappointed, we stayed at the Baia Lara last year and I would have to say that I feel it is the better of the 2 hotels We are in room 3033 which compared to the room at the Baia is quite small I asked for a double bed and got 2 singles and although you don't come on holiday to watch the tv I am a massive tennis fan and was looking forward to watching the french open in the afternoons but again unlike the Baia this hotel does not have Eurosport . The food is very good and everywhere is very clean but again the Baia is better the food courts around the pool area at Baia are second to none I am sure that there are better rooms here at the Barut just a pity we didn't get to experience them and I think next year we will be going back to the Baia Lara it's a shame really we paid quite a lot of money for our weeks stay and expected a lot more
