“Good holiday”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the libertys lara from 4-15 July. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and check in was very efficient, but unfortunately no child's bed in one of the rooms and no water in fridge in other room.

Hotel itself is quite impressive when you step into foyer with lifts all lit up and nice seating areas. Rooms are spacious and very clean and mini bar topped up every morning with coca cola, sprite, local beer, water so great.

Always plenty to eat and you will never go hungry the pasta shack for lunch is especially great. Service on buffet dining is poor and you had to wait for table to be set, go looking for waiter to get wine and drinks ordered. Didn't seem to be enough staff to cope with demand. No air conditioning in dining room so very uncomfortable to sit over an hour, then having to go to room where air conditioning on to cool down. Lack of air conditioning in public seating areas was issue, but whilst we were there work was going on to rectify this, although would be better if done when hotel closed and not in high season.

Guest relations Mustafa is a gentlemen and even called us at home on our return to talk through our issues which we greatly appreciated.

Not great selection of cocktails and no effort put into serving them unless you were paying when they then went all out with taste and presentation! If all inclusive no attention paid. If all inclusive shouldn't be a difference not in my opinion we have paid upfront that's only difference so quality shouldn't be different.

Pools are fantastic and entertainment team during the day are great, but evening entertainment is a bit dated with our 9 and 10 year old bored and prefer to play on tablets. Bingo and karaoke is not 5T entertainment.

All in all good holiday but lacked that 5T quality which we paid for.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with friends

We had the misfortune of staying in this hotel in March the rooms were not cleaned the bath was leaking the place was undergoing refurbishment and paying guests were jumping over cables dodging ladders painting was being done on the pathways to the pools we contacted our rep and was told to tell reception we did nothing was done we paid £1000 for 7 nights of horror hot tons were falling in the restaurant causing boiling food to go all over the place and catching fire it was a disaster. Contacted Thomson and they said it was all fine nobody else had complained YES they did would not touch Thomson again they want your money and then they don't care DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Hello (Merhaba) Sue,
Thank you for submitting your somewhat belated comments on Trip Advisor.
The Liberty Hotels Lara as you have quite correctly indicated underwent major renovation/refurbishments hence we closed during the months of January and February. We re-opened our doors on March 5th, 2014. As with all major renovation projects, meeting completion deadlines are often fraught with setbacks or delays. We are not going to deny this fact as we did experience numerous anomalies. In this respect we do sincerely apologize to you, however we consider your account to be scathing, overstated and quite theatrical. We do not in any way deny interior and exterior work was on-going; however we ensured safety standards were adhered to as one would expect. You appeared to have escalated your dissatisfaction with your tour operator in resort and back in the UK? Subsequently you were dejected with the response you received from the Thomson after travel team which prompted you vent your anger on Trip Advisor. We totally respect your decision, however we would like to re-iterate as well as concurring with your travel agent that we received an insignificant amount of complaints with regards to the renovations/refurbishments that were carried out. Please refer back to the months of March and you will discover the vast majority of our guests were very complimentary thus submitting their comments on Trip Advisor and other such social media websites.
We fully realize it was not the perfect scenario we envisaged, however we tried our utmost to mitigate the ongoing interior and exterior improvements.
We would like to conclude by wishing you a wonderful Life back in Liverpool, UK.

Mr Sebahattin Asi,
General Manager.

We recently spent a week at the Liberty Lara Hotel and had a great time. Pools are great, large and clean and there are plenty of sunbeds for all the guests. We never had an issue getting one and there didn't seem to be the normal 7am dash which made a nice change from most hotels!

The food is good, there is a lot of choice however, as with all buffets, it does get a little dull after a few days. You get a free meal at one of the A La Carte restaurants included in your stay but the restaurants aren't open every night so I'd recommend booking the day you arrive. There is a desk in reception where a lady will tell you of all availability and get you booked in. We also chose to pay for a meal (at 5 Euros a head -we went for it for a change of scene) and I'm so glad we did. We chose the Thai as our free meal (which i wasn't very impressed with) but the Italian was lovely. I'd highly recommend it. There is also a Turkish restaurant but as the buffet was Turkish we gave that miss although in hind-site, we should have given it a go.

Rooms are modern. There are nice bathrobes and lots of toiletries including toothpaste, shaving equipment etc. Nothing to complain about. Our balcony was small but we only paid for a "restricted view" room so wasn't expecting anything fancy.

The beach isn't too great so if you're into beaches, this may not be the location for you, however the pool does more than makes up for it particularly with the water slides and pool entertainment.

Wifi reception is pretty poor, seemed to be best in the bar by the beach. Dinner ends rather early - 9pm - which wasn't a huge issue if your there with kids but did feel a little early for me and my partner. Saying that, breakfast goes on a lot later than in most hotels so that was good.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be good. We paid less so got a smaller balcony but as they say - you get what y...

We stayed from 16th May for two weeks with my husband my parents his parents and our three children aged 5 2 and 8 months. We had a great holiday. We received amazing service from Servete captain or chief of the restaurants who fell in love with our daughter Evie. The care attention and love we received from Servete will not be forgotten.
My husband and my dad would go to the sunset bar during the day and were always served very quickly from Mate K-Y and Geeza they enjoyed having a good laugh with them.
We didn't have any problems getting seats around the pool
My son who is 5 enjoyed the disco in the evening he also went to the hotels kids club a few times and enjoyed it.
Our room was very spacious for all 5 of us and we didn't have a family room. The maids make sure they are very clean
The hotel may not look the biggest and extravagant from the outside, but don't let that put you off.
The food was amazing loads of choice. It does get busy in the evening to sit outside. Outside there would be food cooked on the grills. The desserts were the best I had had whilst away AI.
Memhet Ali was a fantastic waiter. Works so hard and always a smile on his face.
We loved the pasta house at lunch time. Some of the nicest dishes I have ever had. The pizzas are also great and the chicken too at the snack bar if you don't want the buffet. We went to the Turkish Italian and Thai al carte restaurants. We all loved the Turkish restaurant.
We also signed our son up for swimming lessons whilst there she was AMAZING my sons self esteem confidence and overall swimming ability improved loads in such a short time thanks yo the time she spent with him. She made it really fun. Hope you are able to pass this on to her. As Hayden is now able to swim unaided 2 meters and put his face in the water thanks to the teaching she gave him.
This is a great hotel I would 100% recommend to others and would love to visit again.

Having just arrived home from an amazing family holiday at the Liberty Hotels I have to say that we were highly impressed from the moment we entered the building to the second we left. Upon arrival we were greeted with champagne cider and flowers for the ladies within our party and porter service taking all luggage to our rooms promptly. Throughout our stay service quality was clearly a priority, with staff making us feel welcome relaxed and comfortable at all times. Rooms: were immaculately presented. with full air con, free mini bar, tea and coffee which was refreshed daily. Food: a fabulous array of food to satisfy every pallet was available at all times throughout the day from 7am until midnight with waitered service within the Silence and Sunset bars which was a unique feature in my opinion. Drink: alcoholic and otherwise was of a high standard with cold fresh water available at all times from fridges throughout the complex. Pool: Outstanding - clean, well presented and set in tranquill gardens providing family play areas and relaxing quiet pools for those wishing to avoid the poolside entertainment and hustle and bustle. Despite the large meandering pools bridges and beachside location there were plenty of sun loungers for everyone and at night the complex was beautifully illuminated. Entertainment was different everynight, with something for everyone. The Gala night was absolutely fantastic with black and white dress code, providing a red carpet treatment, highly decorated tables internally and externally, photographers, cocktails, hors d'oeuvre and a live string quartet. Staff: every single member of staff we encountedered was helpfully, co operative, polite and proffessional, however we must give a special mention to the following for going over and above their duties, and subsequently I trust that these people are suitably recognised by the hotel management for the fantastic job they do day in day out - Waitresses Kandi and Emine along with Hussaine. Night Manager Mr. Junes, who seemd to work tirelessley to deliver high quality service and commitment to the hotel values. Finally: - we must personally thank Guest Liason manager Mustafa, an absolute true gentleman in every sence of the word and an absolute credit to the Liberty Hotels group. We shall be booking to return next year imminently with other members of our family, already booked on the back of our recommendation. May we thank you all for a brilliant holiday and completely endorse this hotel to anyone wanting to enjoy a perfect holiday in fantastic surroundings in Turkey........Colin, Paul, Rina, Annamaria, Reeno & Kiki - Peake/Drinkwater.

Room Tip: All rooms are well presented and accessed by 3 lifts. no special tips required.

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.

From start to finish the service was fantastic, better than 5*! Greeted with champagne and flowers, quick and friendly check in with cases delivered to room within minutes. Newly refurbished rooms are fantastic, spacious with maid service and mini bar filled daily.
The pool and slides are fantastic and all extremely clean, with cold flannels and fruit cart daily at poolside. Pool games were fun with everyone encouraged to get involved.
Spa was fantastic, with myself and hubby enjoying a Turkish bath, scrub and oil massage and our two kids enjoying a Turkish bath and foam massage which they thoroughly enjoyed.
A big thank you to Mustafa at the pier who looked after our party when we hired a beach cabana both weeks, Mustafa is a credit to the hotel, working tirelessly to ensure you get a first class service, thanks for your hospitality you are fabulous.
The main restaurant and speciality restaurants are fantastic, with first class service provided throughout, I cannot fault them. The Italian being my favourite with excellent staff and great service.
Umit the matre'd arranged a fabulous birthday cake for my sons 11th birthday and a friends birthday the following week, reserving a table in the main restaurant for our party of 24 making it extra special, nothing was any trouble, with all staff going out of their way to ensure you had a fabulous holiday. A special thanks to Mehmet Ali, who was fabulous both at breakfast and at the Pasta Bar at lunch, thus guy gives 110%, 100% of the time, always with a smile on his face.
The guys in our party played football against the staff 3 days a week and two games arranged at a local astro park at 1am to support those taking part in Ramadan, a fantastic time and great competitiveness show by all, thank you.
A big thank you to Mustafa from guest relations who is a gem, Umit Golcu and Servet for your Hospitality, we are truly greatful, you and your staff are the reason we return year after year, thank you. A special thank you to Abdullah Memis, Mate and Mate Jnr, Samet Sandar , Fatih and Zafer Tas, Hulk and Bobo, Tefik Ozdenand Murat Turker you are all fabulous.
A fabulous family hotel, definitely - time to build friendships.
