The Limak Lara Deluxe Hotel & Resort, built along the lines of Japanese design, is definitely worth considering and benefits from a perfect location.
The hotel has a large, well-maintained park with a big outdoor swimming pool snaking its way through the garden. The guest rooms are spacious, the service courteous, and the dishes delicious.
The hotel offers very good value for money.
However, the main restaurant gets a bit noisy from time to time, and the many decorations made of artificial flowers can be a bit much.
The hotel is 8 mi from Antalya airport and 16 mi from the city centre. The easiest and cheapest way to the centre of Antalya is by catching the Dolmus bus. The hotel's location makes it perfect for outdoor activities. There is a big luxury shopping centre just across the street.
The Limak Lara Deluxe Hotel & Resort opened in 2006. It is a large, well organised establishment with 446 guest rooms, and can accommodate a total of around 1,200 guests (mainly from German speaking countries and Eastern Europe).
From the outside, the hotel does not have the most attractive appearance, but on the inside it is much prettier than you might expect.
The Limak Lara Deluxe Hotel & Resort is a hotel complex with lots of concrete and not a great deal of vegetaton.
Guests can make use of a swimming pool area measuring 8000m², which is equipped with plenty of deckchairs as well as a bar.
Children will be in heaven with their swimming pool and its 8 slides.
The well-being centre and spa, which is designed with a hint of the Far East, is quite acceptable if a little old-fashioned. The indoor pool area is bathed in light and consists of two swimming pools and a slide. Two pretty saunas overlook the pool.
The spacious standard rooms all enjoy sea views and all come with a dressing room. They also have a pretty bathroom fitted with a bathtub and a large wash basin. In the bedroom itself there is a large flat-screen television and the space opens onto a balcony. Bathrobes are available, but command an additional fee.
The family rooms consist of a lounge (with a large flat-screen television), a bedroom (television, free wired Internet access), a bathroom (large wash basin, big shower, bathrobes included), a jacuzzi, a balcony, a toilet, a safe, a mini-bar, and a balcony.
A staircase leads straight down from this part of the hotel to the family pool, which is set slightly apart from the rest of the hotel.
The guest rooms are all equipped with central air conditioning.
When it comes to meals, the large main restaurant can seat up to 1,000 guests and sometimes gets rather noisy, creating a canteen-like ambience. The buffet consists of a reasonable selection of dishes ranging from international choices to local Turkish cuisine. There are lots of different dishes to choose from at breakfast, and orange juice is free.
In addition to this buffet restaurant, there are 6 à la carte restaurants (Italian, Turkish, fish, Indian, sushi & Thai, Mexican). Meals can be enjoyed free of charge at 3 of these, while the rest will set you back around £8 per person.
All of them serve quality food and offer a very generous range of choices. The service is good and the staff friendly. There are also several bars in the complex.
The beach, a wide but not very long stretch of fine sand offering areas of shade, has a landing stage jutting out into the water. There is a beach bar selling snacks and ice cream throughout the day, and showers, beach huts, and toilets are also on site. The facilities include a volleyball court, and in the shade there is a little playground for children.
