My husband and I had a great time at this hotel and cannot fault it at all. The food was the best we have ever had in a hotel, the choice was amazing. The staff were great and were very friendly. Although the hotel is child friendly, there is an adults only pool which is great if you want a bit of peace and quiet to read. I would definately recommend this hotel

This hotel is amazing - the staff are well coordinated and managed. There isn't anything they won't do.
The rooms are clean and spacious, the food is out of this world, the theme nights cater for all, adults with children, couples or quality time as I did with my sister in law - both relaxing and entertaining.
The Silent pool and bar is ideal for over 16s and you need never venture off the complex.
I loved my stay - pampering, relaxing, socialising - it's all there for you.
Perfect !

We arrived at the hotel at 11pm, and got told there was a buffet for us there was hardly anything there.
We then got to the room and arrived initially the room looked nice and clean. We then went to turn on the air conditioning it wasn't cold at 4 in the morning my partner then went to reception to complain and he got accused of having the door open. Then we went down in the morning to say about the aircon and we then got told that it was turned of during the night!!!! I have NEVER Hurd if this, me and my partner have both traveled over the world!
Lager then agreed to extend the aircon time from 10pm till 12pm as we complained!
We was bit happy but we have 2 children 4years and 9weeks old so we thought we would get in with the holiday!
That night we then went down to the buffet to eat and couldn't get a table! This is meant to be off peak time, if we can't find a seat to eat now they obviously could but cope with the full capacity at peek time! We found a table the only one we could and my partner was sat towhee with the baby while I went and found the the crappy food that was available. After about 10 mins I returned to the table and my partner then went to get something to eat, myself and my 4 year old was in the middle of eating when a young man came over and told us that it was forbidden to sit there and eat there was not one sign or note to say so I told him that if he could find me us another table to sit at i would gladly move! He just looked at me and said I had to move my partner had two men go up to him and ask him to move!
We where both discusted at this and decided to go out and find food elsewhere out of the hotel!
We had paid for our food during our stay and where forced out of the hotel to buy food out! We had paid to sit and use the facility's in the hotel and couldn't use a table!!
This hotel is an utter joke there meant to be a 5star and the good is not even a 3star.
The rooms we had paid for an upgrade as we had a 9 week old baby with us and we had paid for a double room and where put in a single we couldn't even walk round the beds!!!!
Our thompson rep Kerry just brushed out complaints aside and almost couldn't be bothered with it, she made us feel like the complaints where not that important.
We then got handed over to another rep who deals with the area Amie who was very happy to help and actually couldn't believe how we had been spoken to and wanted to resolve the situation.
This hotel I would recomend they re think there star rating and thompson do the same as we got sold this hotel though thompson!
We are now moving to another hotel down the road and have had to pay another £600 for that! Thompson will be getting a stinking letter and we will be taking this further as I would like the money back for the holiday. We have been miss sold this holiday and will but be returning to Turkey and will not be using thompson holidays again. We travel with them every year and spent a hell of a lot of money with them! I am so disappointed with both parties!!!

Our daughters wedding ! Perfect place, was overwhelmed with the service provided. Hotel staff friendly nothing too much trouble, clean rooms, excellent food. Entertainment was great for kids and adults. We particulary enjoyed the live entertainment on the pier, and dancing quite a few nights until 3 am in the sunset bar . Large group of us so it was perfect. The amphitheatre was also very good with various childrens charachters, dancers and shows. Lovely pool, very clean. The arrangements for food during the day was brilliant, plenty of options available and all so lovely. BBQ and main buffet was also fantastic, with options to eat outside. Always the tepanaki which was lovely. Breakfast was good, not for the typical English breakie, did serve sausage but not the usual, no bacon either but the omlettes were beautiful and loads of fruit, yoghurts, breads and other foods. Food always hot and fresh. The beach is also very nice with sun shelters, sea was deeply shelved and rough at times but we enjoyed this, was like being in cornwall in the waves. Water sports on the beach Paragliding, banana boat, jet ski's. Thankyou Mustafa (guest ralations manager) for overseeing such a perfect wedding, the service was on the pier where mustafa translated, the setting was beautiful. Then the reception was in the Turkish resturant with the Itanlian menu. The tables were laid out beautiful, service was excellent and the food was amazing !!!
A truely wonderful wedding with a 1st class holiday to go with it. FANTASTIC!!!!

#4, We could hear our neighbours tv straight through the wall.lovely at 1 in the morning.
#5, Kabanas on the pier your own butler guess what EXTRA $$$$$
#6, Jet skis banana boat rides sofa rides guess what EXTRA $$$$$
I was suprised they didnt charge you for extra loo paper
Pools were great very clean.
Alacart italian restaraunt not italian.No air con in atrium or indoor breakfast area.
I personaly would not go back.
Mini bar was included 2 bottles of beer replaced every day left on sideboard not in fridge.
Could not open bottles of coke or sprite as we did not have a bottle opener.

Also we had a great view from the small balcony of the staff Quarters and laundry.

Merhaba (Hello) Lennysv,

We hope you are well, in good health and enjoying life back in Tweets Head, Australia.
Many thanks in submitting your review on Trip Advisor. Reading between the lines of your critique it appears you may not have been advised by either your travel agent, brochure or webpage with regards to what is included in your all-inclusive package and the payable extra`s.
We wish to offer you and the rest of our community plausible transparency with regards to the points you have raised. We hope you and our followers who read our response will fathom our management’s dignified approach and stance.
At various outlets within our complex our guests can request either chocolate or Nescafé milk shake free of charge with a topping of cream to bout. Thank you for your positive comments with regards to the pools being clean and the food quality, especially the desserts which are outstanding.
Please accept our heartfelt apologises with a number of customer service issues you appeared to have experienced. In this case we hold our hands up and acknowledge our shortfalls. We also thank you for reiterating on numerous occasions `Dıd you advise us we are a 5 star hotel`? The fact we are a 5 star hotel because we have been awarded the 5 star rating by the Turkish Tourism Ministry also and more importantly 88% by our loyal followers on Trip Advisor.
With regards to your room being noisy, for future reference if you experience a similar situation again whilst on holiday, please see reception or Guests relations and we would have been happy to have organised a room change for you.
Our Italian A La Carte restaurant you claim is `not Italian`, we respect your prowess, however I am currently watching a programme called Masterchef Australia whereby they invite some of the top chef`s on to their programme as they are some of the` leading cutting edge` chefs in the country. One in particular who`s name escapes me based his fine dining `3 hat` restaurant on a modern twist on traditional Italian classics and flavours, which is basically the concept our excellent executive chef has achieved. We do have the Pasta house which may have offered you another Italian culinary option at our hotel, which you have not mentioned in you review. The A/C was an issue hence to a number of rather large glass panels being replace which meant the A/C could not function to the comfortable levels of our customers. We can now confirm the A/C is now working at full capacity as the glass panels have been re-fitted.
The VIP Lounges (cabanas) and the motorised sports are payable extra`s which are quoted in the tour operators brchures, webpage and our own website. We do also appriciate the `Paul Hogan` style humour claiming you were surprised we did not charge for the sanitary accessories?
The view from your balcony is correctly stated the hotels laundary, however with regards to the `staff quaters` they are located a kilometer away which to be more accurate is not visable from your balcony.
We hope you have a wonderful life in Australia and once again, thank you for sharing your holiday experience with our community. We will take on board your comments at our next management meeting.

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.
