“Excellent holiday - made perfect by the Kingfishers!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

We go home tomorrow after an excellent holiday. We have had all we expected and more.

We came to chill out before Xmas and just enjoy the break. We have been treated to an excellent holiday with good food and brilliant service (especially the two young ladies in guest relations and the lovely waitress who attended us at breakfast and midday meals).

We spent our days on nature walks in the morning and trips into Antalya for Xmas shopping in the afternoon.

We brought our binoculars and that turned out well as the region is teeming in interesting bird life. We are not experts so I cannot tell you all we saw but there are lots of varied habitats within walking distance of the hotel. We walked along the beach and then along the side of a small rive which fed back into a pool. On it's banks we saw waders. In the reed beds we saw all sorts of colourful birds which I have yet to google. On the tree tops we saw two herons and when we walked across farmland we saw birds of prey and a range of woodland birds.

The highlight of our bird watching was when we discovered a pair of kingfishers living in the small river than ran under the bridge of the driveway to the hotel. We had a perfect view from the bridge as we watched the kingfishers patrol up and down their river. Stopping to perch on the overhanging reeds to fish. On numerous occasions we had good views of them diving into the river. we saw them with the resultant minnows in their beak.

The bus to Antalya stops just outside, it is not obvious where to get off and initially we found ourselves going on very long trips all around the back streets of Antalya. As long as you have got time to spare it does not matter as the fare is 2TL (about 60p) irrespective of the distance you travel.This is where guest relations come into their own. They will tell you the best shopping mal is 'Terra City' you get the bus driver to tell you where to get off (it takes about 30mins). Terra City has a wide range of shops and we bought quite a few Xmas presents there; it has even got a M&S (M&S quality at Turkish prices). There is a large market on Saturdays that takes about 35mins. To go into the old town takes about an hour. The museum is at the end of the route and takes about an hour and 15mins. The end of the route is worth a trip as you get a great view along the beach on the west of Antalya and it is also a nice walk.

Well all in all the hotel is great and should be even better as we are told it is having a restoration over January & February. We don't know how they can provide such a holiday at the inexpensive price we paid.

Well we are now off to enjoy our last day.

Hope you have as enjoyable holiday as we have and remember to bring your binoculars.

Regards,
Margaret & Colin

I was very aprehensive to book this holiday in Turkey, as this was my friends choice.
BUT, what a great holiday we have had.

Positive:

- The location, only 20 min from Airport transfer;
- Resort has a quiet for adults and more children oriented parts of the huge pool;
- Staff is amazing, cant do enough for you. Our waiter Abdullha is an absolute GEM. Everyone is most polite and always with smile.
- Food choice was amaizing, i have so much enjoyed local food, selections of salads and healthy choice is astonishing. The whole resorts is all about FOOD, TOP Quality and diverse food. Local pizzas and BOREK were out of this world. There was nothing about food that i did not like. Deserts;
- SPA was great, great turkish bath and massage;
- Disco area and Entertainment was enjoyable;

No Positive

- Rooms did not match the whole resort image and were very basic, but that did not spoil my stay;
- Thais food in Thai restaurant did not taste thai at all, even though the service and ambience was great;
- The beach is great for walks but i did not think that sea itself was great. It was not a gradual descend into water, but very sudden.

Nevertheles, i loved this place this much that I am coming back again. This is my first ever destination that I am going back to - Ever. Guess, that says a lot about this place.

Thank you

Room Tip: lower level rooms get a good signal of WiFi ;)

We stayed at the liberty hotel Lara beach for one week. The best thing we found about the hotel was the staff. All the staff very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good with plenty of variety. Hard to choose sometimes, as the choice was great.
We travelled to Antalya several times using the local bus LC07, visited the museum which we found interesting. The old town is well worth a visit.

Stayed at this hotel for 7 nights from 26th November 2013 till 3rd December 2013, really enjoyed our stay. Staff are very friendly, hotel is clean, food is plentiful and delicious.

Few small niggles-had to pay for safe deposit box which was disappointing as all other all inclusive hotels I have stayed at provided safes free of charge. Also, their was no iron available for use upon request and using the pressing service was the only option, which again is disappointing for an all inclusive holiday.

Overall, a great hotel though ; - )

This was our second visit to this hotel,whilst writting my review i must say that there is a refit being done on this hotel in Jan-Feb this year.The overall apearance of the hotel is very clean as expected,pool side cleaned regularly,staff the most freindliest staff you could wish to meet.My partener is disabled,the staff bent over backward to assist her in every way,one member even went as far as assisting her to put her dinner on her plate,thus leaving her free to walk with out any discomfort.I would reccomend this hotel too anyone.The pools were closed when we were there,the beach and area surrounding it were clean.Only one tip i would reccomend,ask for a room either on second floor or higher,if that not possible then a room at the front of the hotel,our room was above the bar area,this somewhat diod spoil the evenings due to bar open till 12.00,there was a lot of noise,but then people were there to enjoy themselves as we were and did.Once again highly reccomended.

The staff at Liberty Hotel are second to none. Their willingness to assist in any way possible helps to make your holiday all it should be, everything is done with a smile. Special mention must go to the lovely Guest Relations girl Parna Bahrebar, Parna you are such a lovely person to know and it was a real pleasure to make your acquaintance. Your like a breath of fresh air and so helpful you were a big part of why we enjoyed our holiday. Hey! how about a loyalty card for regular guests? The food is varied and appetising, well done the kitchen staff. The al carte restaurants Italian and Turkish are a wow, you really must experience this as it is 1 free visit per week of your stay. We enjoyed the Al carte so much we paid the 4euro each to visit another night. The Italian won by a smidgeon but only just. Perhaps the entertainment could have been better but it was end of season and this is a regular thing with most hotels. We did find however that the coffees never quite seemed to be hot hot, why I don,t know. Hotel location a little out of town so be aware of this, we booked 1 trip out to Antalya town for the day with Thomson rep Farah, never again!! we were taken to a jewellery complex where we were to stay for 1hr. O.M.G high pressure sales like you,v never had. Absolutely terrible, tried to sell me a £5000 necklace. I will be complaining to Thomsons.
