“"Another excellent holiday"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

We visited Liberty Lara in Nov/Dec 2013 and it was every bit as good as the other 5 times we have been here . One of the reasons we keep visiting is because the staff are so helpful and friendly. On arrival you are get a complimentary drink your bags are taken straight to your room where lovely wine, chocolates and fruit are waiting for you. In the dining room the staff are great(especially Habib,Mohammad and Abdullah) they greet you like old friends, our son is disabled and they reserved a table near the door with plenty of room as he was sometimes in his wheelchair.Oon our last night Abdullah brought our son a non alcoholic cocktail with sparklers in which he really liked, the food is excellent there is always lots of choice. If you want to really relax go to the spa, we had a Turkish foam bath, full body massage and the back and neck massage which were fantastic would highly recommend them. Anything you want you just have to go to guest relations and they will do their best to help you especially Parna . The beach, pools and outdoor areas are lovely places to relax and unwind. The bedrooms have always been clean and adequate for our needs over the years that we have been visiting but having seen one of the refurbished rooms and asked for our opinions on colour schemes the hotel is going to be stunning and although there are bigger and newer hotels on lara Beach we find that the management and staff at Liberty are more like an extended family and look after you really well which is something that we rate highly in a holiday Farah the Thomsons rep was really nice and helped us whenever she could. We have already booked to go back in May and we can't wait.

The hotel covers mattresses that should have been thrown out years ago, they were thread bear with brownish dirty stains all over, wrapped tightly in a tubular sewn sheet we were overlooking the hotel next door waste area & dustcarts banging & clattering at 5.40am we were given another room after speaking to the fourth member of staff & the second manager but of the five mattresses in the two rooms not one was as clean as it should have been, apparently they wash the mattresses, the food was good if you got down soon after opening entertainment was hit & miss some good some very very poor, nice pools and some staff were very friendly, chatty & helpful this helped make the holiday better

Room Tip: Check your Mattresses i have photos one looks like blood stain other photos don't look nice to...

Dear Kelvin,

We trust that you and your family are well. Thank you for taking the time to state your concerns regarding a number of issues you experienced during your stay. We naturally welcome and embrace positive comments we receive; this is also true with negative comments as well. We are grateful to you for acknowledging the positive aspects of you holiday such as the food, entertainment in certain aspects and staff members whom we are very proud of.
We need to look at the bigger picture and hold our hands up and accept our shortfalls and apologies for not meeting your expectations. As I respond to you the Liberty Hotels Lara is undergoing a major refurbishment project which we believe we eradicate the anomalies you have pointed out.
All 311 rooms are being renovated to a very high standard bring it into line with current trends.
The mattresses, blankets, bed sheets, covers etc are all being replaced and when we open our doors on March 5th we will implement a robust room audit. We are always happy to accommodate (subject to availability) our customers who are not happy with the position of their room. We aim to improve the customer service experience during the transition of a room change.
With regards to entertainment, during the winter as with a number of other destinations we have to take into account customer occupancy and profiles. We offer an extensive summer entertainments programme with a multitude of options. We will take on board your views to improving the quality of entertainment in the future.
We would be very happy to welcome you back to the Liberty Hotels Lara with open arms as we are very confident you will be hugely impressed with the renovations.
We thank you for your feedback as we value your comments which we drive us forward to deliver a memorable holiday experience to all our customers

Stayed at the Liberty Lara for the Christmas week. All what has been said about the staff is true. They really are a happy, professional and caring team. They clearly enjoy your jobs as they were forever smiling. A very special mention to the very kind housekeeper who found our son's gold chain and handed it in - thank you for your honesty Eray, sorry we did not get to thank you in person, that kindness is rarely experienced anywhere these days. The food was plentiful with a huge selection, you will not go hungry even if you are very fussy like me. The hotel is maintained to a very high standard and the rooms are thoroughly cleaned with fresh linen every day. Shame we visited out of season as we would have enjoyed our stay more if all amenities were open for us, but hey weather cannot be guaranteed everywhere, so there was not much to do and if I had one comment it would have been good if the hotel could provide a mini bus service (not free of course) out of peak season for guests wishing to go into town, as you do need more than a day to see it all and as there is not much to do once you go outside the hotel this could be an option for guests if they wish - whilst there is public service, it is time consuming, just an observation. Farah our rep was wonderful, possibly the best rep we have ever encountered, if you use Thomson Holiday Farah will look after all your needs and she has a wealth of information willing to impart her knowledge on. We have no hesitation recommending this little gem of a hotel. We would return again for sure, something we never do as we enjoy sampling different places, so Liberty Lara looks like you will be seeing us again.

My Wife and I stayed from 17/12 to 31/12/2013.
Our transfer from the airport to the Lara was only 25 mins.
Upon arriving we were met by smiling,friendly polite staff.We were given a welcome drink,and check-in did not take long.We where made to feel welcome,and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.The room we where allocated was was on the 4th floor,and the hotel had 8 floors.Access to all floors is by 3 lifts,side by side.These are a feature in themselves!Our room faced left side with a partial sea view(as stated).The Food was excellent,varied and plenty from breakfast,lunch,and dinner,not forgetting snacks in between,should you so wish!Again ALL the staff were excellent,always smiling and polite,making us feel like we where valued patrons of the Lara.The Hotel itself was very,very clean and our rooms where tidied,and lovely clean fresh bedding Every day,and as promised our mini bar was kept stocked up each day,also tea,coffee and all,with even a kettle.Large sofas and chairs adorn the main hotel area and we always felt so comfortable here! Bar staff constantly at our service,asking us what we would like. No standing at the bar(unless they were really busy) then service at any of the bars was quick,then they would even bring it to you where you sat!Again perfect service!
And Not forgetting the 2 ala-carte restaurants,2 visits allowed for free if you stayed for 2 weeks! One Turkish menu,One Italian! food here excellent and for just 5 euro each supplement you could reserve a table and enjoy a six course meal,served again with smiles and TOP CLASS service,including wines,and beers!we did the Italian twice and the Turkish once.A big thank you to Murat,and Hussien in the ala -carte restaurant! I could go on,but I won't! To all the staff,reception,cleaners et al THANK YOU for making our Holiday wonderful! and Please tip the staff in hand now and again,far too many people don't,they work hard for little wages!Mr and Mrs Howard Parker.We would like to see again soon!

After reading numerous great reviews about this hotel I was disappointed. It wasn't a cheap holiday as paid more for the 5*. It was far more geared to German visitors. We couldn't even buy an English newspaper but had choices for Germans.
I agree that most of the staff were friendly but not all and we have stayed in 2 and 3* hotels and the staff have been just as friendly.
The food was by far over-rated and had a distinct lack of meat!! Had better in a 3* in Bulgaria earlier last year! In particular a lot of the food was cold. Coffee at breakfast was stewed and cold.
The rooms were very basic and the so called satellite TV had hardly any English channels but plenty of German. It advertised flat screen TV's but was an old small portable with a very poor picture.
Alcoholic drinks were watered down after first drink.
Supposed to have 5 themed restaurant's but only 2 were available of which we had to pay a fee on the Turkish one.
Hotel was booked on a pay on arrival basis but cost us £100 more than should have.
Outside areas were not clean and lacking maintenance.
Safety hazards with cleaners buffing floors and wires everywhere once in public areas. Roofs leaking through rain and towels scattered about throughout reception area.
Revolving door was out of order the whole stay.

I hardly ever write reviews for hotels I stay at and it's taken me 6 months to get round to it but just felt I had to for Liberty as it was our best holiday ever. Our family room was amazing, really quiet and extremely spacious with it's 2 rooms, meaning that whilst my little boy could sleep in his room at night, my husband and I could enjoy the evening, having some drinks downstairs and on the balcony. This was really important to us, as with my son being young we knew that he'd need to get to bed but we also wanted to have a nice time together.
We've not been all inclusive before and wondered if the food would be varied enough and whether the drinks really would be free and available all day. I needn't have worried at all. I have never seen such an amazing display of food. There really is something (or 100 things!) for everyone. Not just buffet food but food cooked to order too so I don't see how anyone could get bored at all. And that was just the main restaurant. We also tried the pizzas for lunch, and the pasta bar which we all loved, I just can't fault any of it. The staff were all really friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. My little boy was 3 and went to the hotel fun club for an hour or so each day, which was right by where we were sitting round the kids pool so I could see him playing, which was lovely as he's young and, although I wanted him to have fun with the children, I also wanted to check he was ok as he's young. He loved it there and the ladies were brilliant with him. They did face and t shirt painting and played games in the pool. The mini disco in the evenings was great for him. I can't comment on the rest of the evening entertainment as we didn't go to this.
the swimming pools were lovely. We stayed round the kids pool as it had the water slides and other children for him to play with and we had such a fun time.
There was only 1 really small thing I could say is that the bar by the kids pool didn't open until 12:30 (maybe because we were out of season), so we had to walk to the next bar to get water. It wasn't too far but when it's so hot it's good to have water readily available. I thought, since the drinks are free anyway, that even if the bar wasn't open that perhaps there could be a water fridge somewhere.
I really can't rave enough about this holiday and we will definitely be coming back soon, maybe Summer 2014. I just wish we were there now. We normally are ready to come home after a holiday but I could have stayed weeks longer!

Room Tip: Our family room was on the top floor. Really quiet with great lift facilities. Only had a side vie...
