I and my partner booked a wedding package through Thomson arriving at the Liberty Lara on 27th June 2014, On arrival the main reception was impressive, it had a fresh scent, we were greeted with sparkling wine and the check in was very efficient.
The hotel as a whole was very clean, the main hotel, restaurant and the room that we stayed was very clean, we were impressed with the mini bar in our room it was re stocked daily with branded drinks, i.e coca cola, sprite, lager.
The pools were great, we used the children's pool rather than the main pools for our 3 year old son to play which he really enjoyed and he was generally entertained in the pool which had a very small baby slide and two bigger slides for the toddlers and older children, we also used the slides and had lots of family fun together.
The large slides were also fun for older children and adults.
There were convenient shops within the hotel, they were expensive in comparison to the shops outside the hotel but that is expected.
There is a wide range of shops and malls on stepping out of the hotel also surrounded by other 5* hotels, the buses are very regular and easy to use which take you to Antalya which is a very beautiful city with shops, malls, café bars and restaurants, less than £2 per adult each way.
The staff at the hotel work very hard and they are very friendly in fact I have never stayed at a hotel where the staff appear to be so genuine and nice and actually enjoy to serve the guests and want to provide a top class service.
The food is absolutely amazing, there is lots of variety and each day / evening there is an outside bbq style dining experience which is amazing, there is always a waiter / waitress to offer you drinks and the food is plentiful.
The day time food is of great choice and again quality food, the fresh pizzas are amazing, the fried chicken bar, the restaurant with ample choice.
There are several Al A Carte restaurants, we dined in the Italian restaurant on our wedding evening, we ate at the Turkish restaurant, the Asian restaurant and the bbq and they were all absolutely top class, the food was amazing, the service was fantastic and each waiter very attentive.
Our wedding was just stunning, thank you to the Thomson team in particular Kerry and Mustafa who took away all of the stress of organising the wedding, the ceremony on the pier was beautiful and I would do it all again, Mustafa from the guest relations at the hotel was indeed a very lovely pleasant gentleman and it is such a pleasure to meet such a kind, genuine person whilst on holiday, ' time to build friendships ' and the hotel staff present exactly that.
We were very honoured to have shared our wedding day at the Liberty Lara, this hotel will hold special memories with us for a lifetime and such we as a family will return to the Liberty Lara, we have wanted to visit this hotel for some years based on reviews and television advertising and we were not disappointed.
If there is only one negative which is nothing major at all, the plastic grids surrounding the children pool are in need of being replaced they are loose with parts missing which could at some point cause an injury but we made sure that our son was aware of this and he stepped over the grids.
The rooms are comfortable in particular the beds, we slept at least a solid 10 hours each night, the air conditioning in the rooms worked fabulous and was a real bonus in the extreme hot weather.
The entertainment was great, we as adults couldn't take part in the daytime pool activities with having a 3 year old to supervise but we still had a great time in the kids pool.
The evening entertainment was great too, there is an amazing party on the pier each week with a live band and it really is such a great musical environment, as was the live singer and the karaoke evenings too.
The hotel photographer is very good in fact the wedding photographs that he produced were breath taking, again memories that will last a lifetime.
A big thank you to all staff at the hotel, we had a fabulous stay with you and there is no doubt that we will see you a again in the future. Kind regards and respect Charlotte Daniel and Jack Pattison.
