“Overall a lovely holiday”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We visited Barut Lara for the first time for 10 days. The hotel was beautiful, always very clean and well presented. The food was delicious, there are many A La Carte restaurants which are all free of charge but must book in advance. The pools are beautiful especially when lit up at night time, again always very clean. First hotel I have been to which has never felt overcrowded, the pools was never busy, neither the beach.

The entertainment team really made my stay special, we met a couple Ezgi and Yalcin which really made an effort to make you feel welcome. Yalcin always made the effort to find us and update us on which entertainment was on for the evening and ask how our stay is. Ezgi held water gym in the mornings which I took part in every day, it was fun and really worked you out! We even learnt a little bit of Turkish whilst spending time with these guys.

Booked the Barut Lara Beach this year after celebrating my siver wedding there in 2013. last year's booking was made on the recommendation of my brother and he didn't dissappoint me.
We returned this year for a 1 week break with friends and hoped it was as good. The only words I can use are faultless and magnifcent.
Not only have they improved the facilities which were excellent previously but they have increased choice in the dining experience, the food in all restaurants was exceptional, the service was brilliant and the comfort and cleanliness of the accommodation was terrific.
Our friends were delighted that we had taken them to such a gem of a hotel and I couldn't have believed that they improved upon what I regarded to be the best all inclusive hotel i've ever been in in my life.
All the staff were amazing but some deserve special mention, the pool bar staff, particularly Bengul were so friendly, attentive and helpful and the entratainment team made a 1 week holiday seem like 2 days, we were so dissappointed to be going home.
Mfamily and I have enjoyed over 20 differnt All inclusive holidays in the Med over the years but this Hotel is in another league so when I read other reviews where custemers have a degree of disappointment i have to assume they didn't speak to guest services as in my experience they can fix anything seamlessly
We will certainly return and I must admit to being nervous about posting so glowing a report as the hotekl could get so popular I might not be able to find room availability when i want to go back
If I could award 6 stars I would do so in an instant

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra select a superior or deluxe room, it's worth it

My Wife and i are just back a few days ago after spending 2 weeks at this hotel. On arrival the person behind the check in desk made us feel about as welcome as toothache, no welcoming drink or anything.
Our room was a bit of a dissapointment, quite small and pretty basic, although i have to say the bed was probably the most comfortable i have ever slept on.
The food ranged from extremely good to pretty poor, the main dining room was at times terrible with a lot of the food at best luke warm, we complained to management regarding this and was told the temp of the food had been checked and it was fine....it was most certainly not, we never once saw a chef checking the temp of the food.
The a-la-carte restaurantes was on the whole very good although the menu in most seemed to overlap a lot with each other.
Booking the a-la-carte restaurants was chaotic to say the least, you could book at the guest relation desk or you could book at 2 machines beside the guest relation desk using your room card, big problem with the machines, we were locked out of these for about the last 8 days (as was loads of other guests we spoke to) we were told they knew there was a problem but totally failed to resolve it.
In general the drinks was fine although you had to ask for premium brands or you did not get them, also it would have been nice to have some kind of choice regarding wine within the all inclusive menu in the a-la-carte restaurants other than the house red or white.
There is a show on every night at the amphitheatre at 21.30 then any 'live' music starting at 22.30 which to be honest is rather late at night for a lot of people.
The cleanliness in the hotel is a bit hit and miss with some parts sparkling and other parts not what you would expect.
All in all...a bit of a let down and in our opinion definately not 5 star probably a decent 4 star hotel.
My wife and i have stayed in other 5 star hotels in Turkey and this hotel did not even come close to the likes of the Gloria Serenity.
On checking out the girl at the desk was totally cold and cheerless.
The Barut Lara totally lacks any kind of pezaz or wow factor
I have to say we totally fail to see where the Tripadvisor ratings for this hotel comes from and we will certainly not be going back.

We were on a Gate 1 tour of Turkey and they put us up in this hotel for two nights. What a treat! . The hotel grounds are beautiful, the swimming pools are numerous, and it sits right on the sea. While there were a lot of people there it never felt crowded becuase their ius so much open space. There is everything you could want to do at a resort, including archery, tennis, swimming, kyacking and all kinds of games and entertainment at night. It was like being on a cruise ship that wasn't floating on the ocean. The food was nicely prepared and the variety was great.

We visited the Barut for the first time in early May, for a week, with friends who had previously stayed at the hotel.
Our friends had stayed at a number of top hotels in Turkey, and this was their favourite.
The hotel is only a short taxi ride from the airport. Upon arrival late in the evening we were welcomed at reception and were all upgraded to family suites. The rooms were excellent, clean with plenty of space plus superb bathroom with walk-in shower.
The hotel has a buffet restaurant but also has a number of super al a carte restaurants some are themed, ie Seaford, Italian and Turkish or simply a combination of dishes from around the world. There is a Bar B Q restaurant but at the time of our visit this wasnt open.
The only critiscm of the restaurants was that the buffet could be improved. Other hotels which we have visited have now introduced 'cooking stations' including the Belek Voyage and even the Rixos Lara. Barut has a couple but could easily improve in this area.
The al a carte restaurants have to be booked at reception, normally the day before. No problem.
There are bars all around the complex, serving the usual local beers, cocktails etc.
There are a number of pools, plus it has its own beach. No problem obtaining a sunbed.
The hotel has loads of facilities, sports plus an excellent animation team. They work so hard and are great fun, involving you in activities but only if you choose to do so.
Excellent entertaiment, nightclub and even a kareoke evening. The 2 guys performing Madonna, 'like a virgin' were brilliant, and deserve a recording contract !
We were told that the hotel was 80% full at the time we were there. It didnt at all feel crowded, just very relaxed.
We found all the staff very friendly,
You will have a great time if you choose the Barut.....we did !!

This resort is absolutely amazing - from check-in to check-out there's nothing that they don't do to make your holiday worth every penny. The choice of restaurants in the A La Carte section are some of the best Restaurants we've ever been to - food / service & drink all exceptional, special mention to Asian Restaurant, our evening there was fabulous. The resort is spotlessly clean with people monitoring it 24/7 to ensure they are making your holiday a truly fantastic experience. The beach & pier have a seperate bar area where you have unlimited supply of drinks all day. Excellent selection of Branded Alcoholic Drinks in all bar areas & a nightly musical / entertainment section at the pool bar & Ampitheatre where there is a great atmosphere. A cinema & night club included too. We don't have kids but the Entertainment Team are worth their weight in gold & provide a first class, action packed schedule daily. We won't hesitate to return to this resort again. There's a reason why it's voted #1 in Turkey.

I think they have the best service quality overall. All the personnel was very kind and was trying to do as much as they can for you. I was really impressed. My 5yr old daughter had great time at the mini club all day and night. They were putting on very interesting shows for the kids that keep them entertained all through the day. All-inclusive concept covered everything from minibar at the room to a complete menu of drinks at the bar or orange juice in the breakfast.
