We had a great time with friends, not the first time at the hotel, as always everything is good, the food is wonderful, the minibar is replenished with beer, juices, soda, water... We swam in the outdoor heated pool every day. The entertainment was great, there was a disco, mini disco... In the dining room, you can find everything you want - fish, chicken, duck, lamb, turkey, beef, all kinds of fruits, even exotic ones, the pastries are amazing... We went to the city to walk, we bought a bus card opposite the hotel... Our beloved Turkey is always at the top...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from November 5th to November 12th. I will start with the positives. (Although in everything that is a plus, you can find negatives. But we didn't really nitpick, and if we did find something, we tried not to pay attention to it). We arrived at the hotel around 1 am. And immediately received cards for a room with a direct sea view and panoramic windows! We checked in and made it to breakfast. But even if we hadn't made it, we would have found something to eat. The hotel offers 24-hour dining. Breakfast ends, and the pastry shop and gazebo with mezze open, next to a small bar and a café with shawarma, fried wings, and burgers. Lunch is mainly in the main restaurant and around the beach bar. Dinner is in the main restaurant or à la carte restaurants. If that's not enough, you can visit the late-night restaurant (we only went there once - we grabbed a snack for the airport, as we didn't have time for dinner). They have fruits, sandwiches, and children's cocktails in boxes. The food is normal and tasty. Everything is as described in previous reviews. The territory is green and well-kept. There are a lot of cats. They are everywhere. But we are cat lovers, so we even liked it. However, their waste products on the couch in the restaurant were quite impressive to us)) The staff is polite, but their limited knowledge of the Russian language can sometimes be a bit annoying. But it's more of our problem)) The cleaning is done daily, but it's not the best! Although it doesn't bother us at all. We just accepted this fact a long time ago. We walked on the floor in slippers. We didn't crawl around with a cotton swab) We celebrated my husband's anniversary at the hotel. We informed guest relations about it. The wonderful Aiten gave us a dinner at an à la carte restaurant. We chose Turkish cuisine (very attentive service, delicious food, happy birthday to you song, and a very tasty cake with candles as a gift)! Yes, they also gave us a bottle of wine, fruits, and sweets in the room. It's the little things, but it's nice. The beach is nice, and the sea was warm. I'm generally not a fan of staying in water, especially in cool water. But this year I enjoyed swimming voluntarily!)) There are not many Russians at the hotel. Mostly Germans and elderly Britons. Overall, we are happy with our vacation. We wanted to extend the summer, enjoy the sea, sun, relaxation, eat delicious food, and lie down a lot)). And that's what we got!

I really liked the hotel overall. Seafood was served almost every day. There was a wide variety of dishes to suit every taste. There was always a large assortment of fruits. Ice cream was available all day at the beach. The alcohol was of good quality and imported. The weak point was the children's entertainment, but this is probably because it was the end of the season. The children's animator was a Turkish girl, which is unusual as animators are usually young. Occasionally, a Turkish guy led the children's entertainment. There were no Russian-speaking animators, neither for adults nor for children. Only on the day of our departure did a nice Russian girl appear as a children's animator. I was able to talk to her, and she had worked at this hotel last year. There was food available for children, even in jars, as well as fruit-flavored drinking yogurts that were eaten with a spoon. Ekaterina, a lovely girl who speaks Russian, resolves any problems and can be found at guest relations. She kindly extended our complimentary room until 2 PM. I recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Sherwood Exclusive Lara hotel during the autumn holidays from 3.1 to 6.11, consisting of 2 adults and 2 children (5 and 12 years old). The hotel disappointed us! Everything was old, worn, neglected, and dirty. They gave us a room on the 9th floor, which was the worst accommodation option. All the deluxe rooms on the last floor have a tiny unaesthetic balcony and ventilation pipes nearby, so the room smells like a kitchen. We asked the reception to change our room, but they refused, claiming that the hotel was fully booked. And this was on October 3rd! I don't believe it. They told us to come back the next day. The next day, they offered us a room that was no better. In the end, we decided to stay in our room. The room was quite worn out, everything was a bit dirty, but it was spacious enough for the four of us. We had one large bed, one full-size single bed (not a sofa bed!), and a fold-out chair. The bathroom was very small. The towels were gray and partially worn out. By the way, the beach towels were also very worn out. All of this worn-out stuff definitely needs to be disposed of and replaced with normal towels! The lobby looked dull and untidy, and the panoramic elevators had cracked glass. The glass throughout the hotel was dirty and not cleaned. The pastry shop looked shabby, but they had delicious pastries and made good cappuccinos, unlike the lobby, where they occasionally brought us instant coffee with milk instead of cappuccinos... The so-called bars didn't look great either. However, I must honestly admit that the food at the hotel was fine. No complaints about that. Only the coffee at breakfast was either very bad quality or instant. I still don't understand. The entertainment shows were also decent. They invited different artists. The pools were all cold except for a small lagoon-shaped pool next to the closed pool, but it smelled strongly of chlorine! We also went to the SPA, which was also disappointing. The hammam was very cold and unattractive. The beach was excellent, with sandy shores. But the sun loungers were very dirty and old. It felt like they were never cleaned... There are hardly any Russian guests at the hotel, mostly elderly English and German tourists. Before this, we spent two weeks in Club Sera in August. I deeply regret coming here instead of Sera. Although it is slightly cheaper, it is significantly better. Overall, choosing this hotel for our vacation was an extremely unfortunate decision! I do not recommend this hotel! It needs to be thoroughly cleaned, renovate the common areas and rooms, replace the textiles and sun loungers, and add some special touch. As it is, it is simply inadequate, dirty, and shabby.

Good afternoon. We stayed at this hotel with our family in early November. In recent years, we have chosen this time for vacation for several reasons - price, weather, and the number of tourists. The end of the season means lower prices, and we don't like hot weather, so the warm weather (+24-25 degrees in the shade) suitable for swimming and sunbathing is perfect for us. And of course, people, in this respect, I'm a bit of a sociophobe and I don't like crowds of people in restaurants or on the beach. Let's start. I'll say right away, everything is just my opinion. We arrived at the hotel early, around 6 o'clock. We didn't have any special requests for the room, the main thing was to be on the higher floor. So they gave us a room on the 8th floor, in the main building. As they later told us, they usually accommodate all Russian tourists there by default. The room was just a room, considering the age and category of the hotel. High up, far away, with a partial sea view. But in the end, we came for the sea, not to sit in the room. Everything we needed was in the room - slippers, toiletries, shampoos, etc. And they were regularly replenished without reminders. The minibar was also standard and everything was restocked. The only downside was that the floors were dirty! Seriously, they probably haven't been cleaned since the beginning of the season. On the third day, we asked the cleaner to mop the floors, by the way, she was a very nice woman who cleaned our room every day and even made towel swans (I wish she had properly cleaned the floors instead). But she didn't really clean the floor, just spread everything around, so we had to wipe it ourselves. The shower had seen better days, some parts were leaking, some needed maintenance... but overall, it wasn't a big deal, after all, this is not the Rixos or Maradana Palace. The most important thing was that everything worked as it should, the bedding was clean, and the towels were changed almost every day. The beach was large and comfortable. The entrance was not very steep, as has been mentioned before, but even our child was comfortable entering and exiting the water. The stones were small and pleasant to the touch, and the bottom was sandy. So, those who write about coral and how it hurts their feet are just exaggerating. There was plenty of space and plenty of lounge chairs, but that was probably because it was towards the end of the season. And yes, I agree, there were a lot of cigarette butts on the beach. Either they didn't have time to clean them, or they just didn't bother. But that depends on the people. The shade structures and lounge chairs were in decent condition, and waiters constantly walked around, cleaning up dishes and bringing drinks. Speaking of the clientele, there were mostly German retirees and marginal English people, not many Russians. The most unpleasant impression was from the English people. They were loud, drunk, spitting, throwing cigarette butts, and behaving like pigs - that's all about them. But thankfully, they didn't start fights with other people; they just minded their own noisy business. As for the restaurants, we don't worship food, so I won't go into detail about what was good or not, especially since we didn't dine à la carte. There was beef, lamb, goat, red fish, and shrimp, if anyone is interested. It was all typical for Turkish hotels. I must say the most beloved phrase of Russian tourists - "you won't go hungry here" - holds true. But there is a drinking culture here. The local beer, both bottled and draft, was nothing special. We also tried "ala prosecco" champagne, it was decent. The wine was so-so, gave me heartburn. I only tried imported strong alcohol - JB, Jack Daniels, Gordons, Captain Morgan, Havana Club, Ballantine's, Chivas 12. It was fine. I didn't go blind, apparently. They make good cocktails in the lobby, but they are lazy on the beach. The staff. I can't say anything bad. The waiters were busy, running around, bringing whatever you asked for. Even the bartenders weren't rude, which is strange, they did what they were supposed to do without showing off. Everyone smiled and greeted us. I never saw them treat people based on nationality. I already mentioned the room cleaning earlier, I was pleasantly surprised by that. And yes, as I mentioned before, they hardly spoke Russian. Oh, there was one incident in the restaurant. One waiter was from one of the former Soviet republics, who apparently used to work in construction in Moscow and learned a couple of Russian words. He was a bit rude to my wife, but she sorted him out herself, so after that, he walked around and smiled ingratiatingly for the rest of our stay. Since the hotel is located in Lara, there are plenty of local boutiques along the street with astronomical prices. If you need something, and people like us also go to the beach, go to Antalya. The bus number 7 takes about an hour, you won't get lost. For example, I wanted a hookah, but the hotel didn't have it for some reason. On the street, it cost $4-5, and in any restaurant in Antalya, it's about 4 lira. In conclusion, as many have written before, the hotel is far from new, but it is not falling apart. Yes, it's a bit tired, but it's still acceptable. If you look into it, more than half of the hotels in Lara are less than 2 years old. The staff's attitude is good, they solve all issues, and the service staff is worthy, they do their job well. There weren't many evening entertainment options, just live music a couple of times, bingo, and a beach disco. Even the activities for children were not impressive. It was probably due to the off-season. And yes, for those who are used to Alveda, Port Nature, and other Mardan Palaces, you won't feel cozy here. Regular people come here to relax and leave their pretensions at home.

I only write what is not reflected above by hotel guests. TUI flight - a new plane, Russian stewardesses, food for purchase. Antalya airport. At the same time, there are seven TUI planes. There is a very long line at the TUI counters at the exit, about five people. They quickly dispersed. Transfer to the hotel: Mercedes minibus, leather seats, air conditioning, tinted windows, only the two of us were taken to Sherwood. Check-in: Arrived at the hotel around 1 o'clock. At check-in, we handed over a recommendation letter from TopHotels and two Alenka chocolates. At 12 o'clock, our sea view room turned into a panoramic sea view room with floor-to-ceiling windows on the third floor of the second building. Room: good repair, a two by two meter bed with an orthopedic mattress, and everything else that has been described above. There is no dispenser for soap with a push button in the room, but there are small bottles from which it is difficult to get anything out. There are no washcloths, bathrobes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, or disposable razors. Bring them with you. The quality of cleaning is not affected by the dollars, euros, etc. that you leave on the bed. The minibar is stocked with beer, Fanta, Coke, etc. It is replenished every day. Sometimes they forget, so it's better to remind them. The Wi-Fi signal is strong, but you can only register after checking in. The air conditioner cools in the morning and evening, but during the day it is useless as the room is directly in the sun and it becomes very hot. The balcony is small, only suitable for one person. Restaurants: there are many, and they serve good food to suit all tastes. You won't go hungry. À la carte restaurants are available for a fee. The territory is well-maintained, with palm trees and other plants and flowers that we only see at home in pots. Beach: there is a pier, sunbeds, towels, etc., all for free. The sea is comfortable until around noon, then the wind and waves pick up, and by 4 PM, it's only suitable for surfing near the shore if you're not an extreme sport enthusiast. Lifeguards don't care where you swim, even if it's beyond the buoys. Water activities are limited and require an additional fee: parasailing, jet ski, etc. Sometimes you can see oil rings from these activities on the water on the left side of the beach. Reception: Be prepared that they might not understand you if you don't speak English or German. Just smile and they will send you to Guest Relations. There, you will find a nice girl named Ayten who speaks Russian and can help with anything, but she is not always available and not there on weekends. Restaurant: There is no dress code. Following the Germans' lead, as the hotel caters to them, you can go to the restaurant in your underwear and flip-flops, which seemed strange at first but we got used to it. There is no separate section in the restaurant, everything is mixed together. Guests: mainly elderly Germans with walkers and senior citizens, young families with children from one year old and above, and a few young German couples. There are also Russians, both with families and solo travelers. The return transfer to the airport is a regular bus with a route through Antalya, picking up all the Russians from different hotels. There is no guide, so you will have to orient yourself in Terminal 2 of the airport by looking at the screens. They will bring you there as the last group for check-in, so be prepared to wait in line. On the plane, as always, they will seat you next to a mother with a baby who needs to sleep, while her toddler gets to rest in another seat. Overall, there is a lot of positivity that can't even be spoiled by sitting near the restroom on the return flight. Thanks to Sherwood for the excellent food and wake-up mosquitos in the morning instead of an alarm clock. There's a mosque near the hotel, so you will be woken up on time for breakfast. Neighboring nightclubs won't let you go to bed early, with sound levels like that of a heavy metal concert. Shopping: If you try hard, you can find branded items near the hotel. It's best not to venture into simple dives, kiosks, and other bazaars. They may be rude if you try on clothes and don't buy them afterwards. But here, the special Russian language comes in handy, as everyone understands it.

We were first-time guests at this hotel and would gladly come back again! Pros: - We arrived at the hotel around 8 am and were checked in immediately (this was the first time it happened to us! Possibly due to the low season, as we had previously traveled to Turkey in August-September). - Excellent Wi-Fi throughout the property! - The food was top-notch!!!! Extremely diverse and delicious! There is a special diet menu, refrigerators with baby food, and throughout the property there are refrigerators with ayran and a wide variety of fruits. - Impeccable cleanliness everywhere: room, hotel, grounds, beach. - The staff (all of them) were very friendly and welcoming! The property is not very large, but well-organized and very green, with a separate pool area for adults only. The hotel mainly attracts families with children, there are not many young people. We read in the reviews that many say the hotel is getting "a little tired"....This does not apply to the hotel's grounds at all, I would say it's only relative to the furniture in the common areas of the hotel, but it didn't bother us at all. Thank you for the enjoyable stay!

The hotel is just a hotel, but there are better options for the money. Its location is a plus, being close to all shops, cafes, etc. and only a 15-minute drive from the airport. They also prioritize hotel guests by providing warm pool and good food. However, there are also some downsides. The alcohol served is of poor quality, and the taxi service from the hotel costs 25 euros, while other hotels offer taxi services based on the meter. The elevators have a problem of frequently malfunctioning and breaking down. At the reception, there are some employees who are not very clean. Additionally, some of the furniture is worn out, not only in the rooms.

We stayed at the hotel from February 28th to March 9th... It was our first time in Turkey during this time of the year, and I didn't even know how nice it is there at this time of year! We arrived early in the morning, the man at the reception didn't speak Russian, but he was very nice and immediately gave us our room! The room had a sea view, just as we had requested. It was decent and clean, with spotless bedding, contrary to what some people had written. The only issue was that the curtain was torn and not very fresh. The food was good, with red fish and mussels... lots of sweets and fruits, honey in honeycombs... everything was great in terms of food. The waiters were quick, as soon as you sit down, they are already rushing over. There weren't many Russians at the hotel, mostly foreigners and locals with their families. They called us twice in the room to check if everything was okay and if we had any questions. Only one girl at the reception spoke Russian, the rest were all arrogant and unpleasant, especially their female manager... not a pleasant person. To extend our room until departure time, we had to pay 1 euro per hour. I think that's cool. There are 5 or 6 pools in the hotel, one indoor and one outdoor with heating, the water was very comfortable for swimming. The territory is very well-maintained and beautiful, although not very large for such a hotel... during the season, there probably won't be enough space. But that's just my opinion. There are also a lot of cats on the territory, near the restaurants and on the beach... there is a cat house. Kind people, feed the cats, I fed them, they are affectionate and come to greet you. There is a variety of alcohol in the bars, both local and imported, the guys made great cocktails, well done. Turkish coffee and tea are also available. I think that's all about the hotel... There is a market near the hotel, across the road, but everything there is similar... On Fridays, a market comes near the mosque... we bought delicious strawberries and tasty mulberries. We also bought bulk Turkish delight, fresh and good priced... $4 per kilogram. However, the nuts seemed expensive to us, even more expensive than at home. We went shopping by local bus to Terracity shopping center, it takes about 7 minutes by bus, maybe even less... we also went to Mark Antalya... another shopping center where locals shop, it's decent and big, with everything, but there is no Zara there, if anyone is interested... Zara is in Terracity. It takes longer to get to Mark Antalya, probably about an hour without transfers... you will see a large cemetery on the right side. It's better to buy a one-way ticket and then buy a card and load it, it will be cheaper for transportation if you want to travel a lot... the fare costs 9 lira, while in the store, they sell it for 17 lira one way. You can ask at the reception, they also have tickets... We took a tour of Antalya, but we had to rush everywhere, and the guide wasn't interesting, although he showed us beautiful places... the tour for two cost 1 dollar, not cheap... prices in Turkey have increased a lot compared to autumn... We went to the pharmacy across the road, in case anyone needs it, they speak and understand Russian there... some things are cheaper than at home and of good quality. Oh, and when we arrived, they didn't escort us to the room, we had to find it ourselves. And what pleased us was that they didn't put bracelets on us, that was nice! I think I've written everything, if you have any questions, write... and don't hurt the cats))

We stayed at the Sherwood Exclusive Lara Hotel 5* from February 17th to 26th, 2023, with our family of three adults, and we were satisfied with our vacation and the service. The journey from the airport to the hotel took 2 minutes, and we were one of the first to be dropped off. We arrived at 5 am and were immediately checked in. We had room 192 with a view of the grounds and the sea. The room was spacious and clean, with daily cleaning service (floor mopping, surface wiping, sanitizing the bathroom, and spraying disinfectant). Towels were also changed daily. The housekeeper, Gul, spoke good Russian and was friendly. The minibar was restocked with Pepsi, juice, mineral water, regular water, and beer every day. The WiFi signal was strong throughout the entire premises and in the room without any interruptions. It provided perfect conditions for my remote work. Each floor had self-service mobile buffets with cookies, pastries, fruit baskets, a coffee machine, and tea. We were greeted by the administrator, Berna, at the restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She always wished us a good appetite and a nice day. The food was diverse, including grilled fish and meat, shrimp, salted red fish, smoked fish, mussels, lasagna, and diet dishes. Many people wanted the omelette, which was prepared by Selma. The pizza was delicious and the best we've had in any hotel! The restaurant fridge was always stocked with children's food, juices, kefir, and yogurt. The waiters were efficient and conscientious (Ugor, Ibrahim, Fatima, Nazli) and served us drinks (we ordered juice, Pepsi, and tea). There was children's entertainment in the evenings, and for adults, there was live music every day. The songs were sung in different languages, and it was fun and heartwarming. Everyone was dancing, it was impossible to resist! There was also an acrobatics performance. The spa area was clean and cozy, with password-protected lockers, a sauna, steam room, and Turkish bath. Polite Semir provided towels and poured menthol on the sauna stove. There were two heated outdoor pools and one indoors. The warm Jacuzzi had a strong massage feature. There was also a circular foot pool with contrasting water, and we were advised to take four steps in it every day. The beach had sandy shores. There was a bar with drinks, and waiter Mehmet prepared refreshing mint and lemon tea. The grounds were green and well-maintained, and we could walk around late into the night as everything was well-lit. We interacted with guest relations staff member Aiten, who was attentive and friendly. She inquired about how our vacation was going and if we had any requests or suggestions. The hotel is located in Kundu, and there are two Migros supermarkets nearby where you can buy local chocolate (we liked Ulker), sweets, and there are also shops and markets in the area. On Fridays, near the nearest Migros, next to the mosque, there is a market with vegetables, fruits, nuts, and sweets for the local population at affordable prices in lira. Strawberries cost 45 lira; pecan nuts cost 4.1 lira; cashews cost 3 lira; raisins cost 6.75 lira; prunes cost 1 lira; Turkish delights cost 7.8 lira; apples cost 12.2 lira. The exchange rate is 4.3 lira to one unit of currency. The weather was sunny and warm, ranging from 18 to 22 degrees. We sunbathed after lunch. The hotel provided complimentary fruit and cookie plates and wine as a gesture of goodwill. The housekeeper made towel swans, which added to the positive mood! We are grateful to the hotel staff and management for a wonderful vacation!

Good day. My husband and I stayed at this hotel from January 1st to January 7th, 224. The weather was fantastic considering it was winter in Turkey, but it was warm enough to get a tan and swim in the sea. Room. As mentioned in previous reviews, the hotel is a bit tired, but overall the room was clean with clean bed linens, towels, and robes (although they were worn out). We stayed in the second building, and the rooms there were exactly the same as in the first building, just fewer in number. Previously, it was mentioned that the rooms in this building are cheaper, but that's not true, they are exactly the same. By the way, they have started renovating the second building, but not the first one. So, if you fly in the summer and are placed in the second building, most likely the rooms will already be renovated. Our room had a partial view of the sea and partially overlooked the courtyard. The minibar and toiletries were restocked every day, so we didn't need to ask for anything. Food and restaurant. The quantity and quality of the food were excellent: different types of fish every day (salmon, sea bass, Dorado, mackerel), different types of meat (veal, chicken, turkey, lamb), plenty of various vegetables, herbs, grains, French fries, fruits, desserts, cheeses, buns, etc. There were no issues with the food, everything was always delicious with a wide variety, and in the morning, there were always vegetable and fruit smoothies. The drinks were also varied and the waiters brought them upon request. Minus: there was a strong smell (not just an odor, but an actual stench) of cat urine. The cats had marked all the furniture (although they never entered the room), but apparently, the furniture is so old that it has absorbed the smell and it won't go away. So, it smelled strongly from the entrance of the dining hall. By the way, the whole hotel smells of cat urine, likely due to the old furniture that cannot be cleaned and has accumulated this persistent smell. There are several à la carte restaurants, but reservations are required and there is a fee. We didn't go to them as they did not interest us, but every evening they were fully booked. Beach. The beach is very large with sandy areas, with some pebbles here and there, even at the entrance to the sea, but it's not a big problem and doesn't hurt your feet. There were enough beach loungers and no litter; everyone cleaned up after themselves and didn't leave anything behind. Tourists. We arrived on January 1st, and the hotel seemed to be fully booked. The guests were mainly Germans, with very few Russians. Most likely, they were celebrating New Year's at the hotel; everyone was dressed nicely. However, on January 4th, it seemed like they all left, and the hotel became quiet, as the noise from the Russian guests had subsided, and the staff appeared tired. Staff. Overall, there were no complaints about the waiters and bartenders. We did have some issues with the receptionists and guest relations. We had a problem with the room being damp due to the high humidity at night. We wanted to dry the room by turning on the heating mode of the air conditioner. As a result, we had to request the technician to come five times, wait for a day, and argue in English for him to come and simply turn on the air conditioner. The switches were disabled and located behind a panel, which only he knew how to open. Almost no one spoke Russian. The most significant incident! I left some money in a suitcase that was locked with a combination lock. Eventually, $1 and 1 lira disappeared from the locked suitcase. The lock was not working properly, and I didn't understand why initially, but after the money went missing, it was clear that the suitcase had been tampered with (if someone has a Samsonite suitcase with a combination lock, they know that there is a separate opening for customs officials to inspect the luggage, which can be easily opened with a paperclip if you try. We checked ourselves after the money went missing). We approached the managers, and they claimed to have questioned the employees who entered our room, but of course, no one confessed. At that time, they were doing renovations in the neighboring rooms, and I wouldn't be surprised if the workers were responsible. The hotel offered to report the incident to the police ourselves, but we were already leaving, and we didn't want to start a dispute before our departure. There was no guarantee that they would accept our statement and take any action, and they definitely wouldn't have been able to provide us with the results of the investigation. I should note that we have always left our money and valuables like this in the safes during our previous five trips to Turkey, and nothing ever happened. The hotel claims that they would take responsibility if anything was stolen from the safe, but since someone just rummaged through our suitcase, the hotel is not to blame! Conclusion. The hotel is not new at all, there is a smell of cats, but it is very conveniently located, the food is good. Leave your money in the safe if you want it to stay clean. However, there won't be a high level of hospitality here. We previously stayed at the Crystal hotel, where the attitude towards guests was different, and at Side Breeze, which is just another world in terms of guest relations (always attentive, excellent entertainment). Here, most likely due to the larger number of guests, it's different.

I stayed alone at the Sherwood Eclusive Lara 5* hotel from December 12th to December 22nd, 222. I checked in myself through the reception, without a tour or internet websites. I moved from another hotel nearby. The hotel was already half empty, but everyone at the reception asked for 5 green for a room with a direct view of the sea. But in December, it wasn't particularly important there, so I didn't pay. Room 1613 was small, clean, but very tired. Cleaning was done every day, and towels were changed daily as well. The minibar in the room was replenished every day, sometimes they missed it, but they brought it after a call. It had Pepsi, juice, mineral water, plain water, and beer. The WiFi signal throughout the hotel and in the room was fairly strong. The restaurant was downstairs. The food, as usual in hotels, was diverse: both fish and meat, grilled and boiled. There was red salty fish, smoked fish, and the pizza was very tasty. The restaurant fridge always had baby food, juices, kefir, and yogurt. The waiters were great, they worked diligently and brought drinks. There were bars downstairs, and there were different entertainment programs every day, one across from the reception, and another one a bit further away, with a sports theme, and one on the beach. Imported alcohol was available, and I drank Cuban rum which was there. The beer was bottle Efes. The rest was local. There was a choice of one cocktail. Non-alcoholic cocktails were made with carbonated drinks and milk. The water park was large, but it was already closed for winter. There were many slides, including ones for children, and pools with sunbeds. It was located in front of the hotel, right next to the road, between the main street and the hotel. So, when you go up the hill, you will see the whole street. I love riding slides myself, and I think it will be great there during the season. The SPA area was clean and cozy, with a sauna, steam room, and Turkish bath. They poured menthol on the stove in the sauna. There were 2 heated pools, one outdoors and the other indoors. There was another 16+ pool on a raised platform on the roof, but it was closed in winter. There was a warm jacuzzi with a strong massage. The beach had sand. There was a bar with drinks, on sunny days, where you could have tea with mint and lemon. The territory was lush and well-maintained, we walked until late, everything was illuminated. The hotel itself is located in the Kundu village, so there are shops and markets everywhere. Right in front of the hotel, there is a Migros supermarket and a pharmacy. On Fridays, near the nearby Migros, next to the mosque, a market opens with vegetables, fruits, nuts, and sweets for the local population. The weather in December was sunny, but not too warm anymore, 18-2 degrees. You could sunbathe for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

We were on vacation with our family in Turkey and had to book a hotel for 3 nights for shopping in Antalya. Check-in went perfectly, very fast, and there is Russian-speaking staff at the reception. The room, however, disappointed me. The furniture was old, the nightstands were all peeling, and they were dirty (they didn't even wipe the cupboard doors in 3 days, there were tea stains from previous guests). The bedding had stains, the floor was dirty, and the bedside lamp was dusty. There are two positives about the hotel - the grounds and the food at the main restaurant. The grounds are beautiful, cozy, and compact. Special thanks to the gardeners. As for the food, I'll start with the beach bar. The tables are not cleared by the waitstaff, and it's impossible to get them to clear the table. The reusable plastic cups are a separate horror; it's time to replace them with glass or paper. The food at the beach bar is not tasty. In the main restaurant, the food selection is very extensive and everything is delicious. I won't list everything. There is also a nighttime bistro in the hotel, which is convenient, but we arrived at the hotel at 11 pm and didn't have time for dinner. There was only one elderly waiter working at the bistro. The menu order, all the furniture was worn out, and the dishes had chips, which even ruined the appetite. The coffee shop had tasteless coffee and dirty tables. The lobby furniture was old and dirty. In conclusion, the hotel urgently needs renovation. I do not recommend this hotel!

So, in fact .. and let's not forget that everyone has different tastes. The price is 27 for two for 11 nights. Check-in was long. There was a note that we were newlyweds. Bonuses - towel swans, a bottle of wine, fruit. One free visit to the à la carte restaurant (we went to the Italian one - delicious!) 5% discount on a beach tent. Cons. For us. Complete lack of evening entertainment. On both sides of the hotels, there were daily discos and so on. Weak animation during the day. The hotel is a family one. Suitable for family vacations with children. No complaints about the food. Fruits for every taste, fish, chicken, meat, many snack bars, there is even a separate coffee shop with lots of beautiful desserts. Waiters are always running around, always approach multiple times. There are many pools (including 16+), a clean beach, umbrellas are all occupied after 1 pm, both at the pool and on the beach. The rooms are for 4 people. The cleaning is very weak, mirrors/walls are not wiped (stains, dirt). The territory is small. The receptionists are quite friendly. For those who care - no reaction towards Russians, everything is fine. Excursions - Istanbul 195 euros per person. 4 out of 1. Spent an hour at the candy store. The guide was constantly late, disappearing somewhere. Better to go by ourselves. Excursion "Tazy Canyon". If Elvin takes you there, I recommend 1%. In conclusion - a decent family hotel. Those who seek entertainment will be bored there.

Given the rising prices of tours, this year we chose the Sherwood Lara option. If we don't compare the hotel with the previous ones we visited in Lara, it's not bad. But if we do compare, then maximum 4 stars! We arrived early, at 5 am, and there were no greetings from the hotel staff. Everyone was asleep. The Turk at the reception said the hotel was full and that rooms wouldn't be available before 12. He didn't say anything else, really. We waited for the guest relations agent Aytan, and she agreed to let us check-in at 1 pm. The rooms were not great (old bedsheets with holes, robes like rags, towels with stains). But after a couple of days in the hotel, we stopped paying attention. They changed the bedding and towels, and we found some clean ones. Cleaning! Our chambermaid tried her best, she decorated the bed with flowers and made swan and origami figures out of toilet paper. But she never mopped the floors or vacuumed. It felt like sand had been on the floor since the beginning of the season. Despite these drawbacks, we liked the hotel for its hospitality and coziness! The staff was very friendly, responsive, and kind. The food in the restaurant was unpretentious but varied and delicious. Yes, there wasn't any lightly salted fish for breakfast, only grilled trout and seafood once, but there was always something for us and our child. There were plenty of delicious fruits, but the choice of sweets was limited, although there was always baklava. There were imported drinks, but mostly local ones. Two types of bottled beer, only tap water, instant coffee, ayran, mineral water, and YUP juices. Only orange juice for breakfast. The bartenders made good non-alcoholic and alcoholic cocktails. They also had chips and nuts. The ice cream was excellent, both in scoops and variety of packaged options. There was animation, and the children's animators were very pleasant and attentive. In the evening, there was live music and dancing at the beach bar. We didn't attend any shows because we put our child to bed early. The beach was sandy, and there was always space in the morning, although the cleaning was not very consistent. But again, if only the smoking German grandmothers didn't bury their cigarette butts in the sand, it would be cleaner. There was a nice water park with a children's area. Overall, the hotel left us with pleasant impressions. It's a bit unclear why they can't update their textiles and dishes to avoid being embarrassed by such minor things. Yes, it needs renovation, the interiors are outdated, and the rooms are worn out. But the grounds are very beautiful and well-maintained, and the staff tries to create a pleasant atmosphere. Sea, sun, sand, what else do you need? There are plenty of shops nearby, and there was a pharmacy across the street that accepted all Russian cards. We managed to stock up on supplies! We will keep this hotel in mind, but I cannot make a definite recommendation because everyone has their own preferences. We wanted to warm up, swim, and relax in a calm environment away from all the events, and we succeeded!

We chose the hotel based on reviews, but later regretted it. We arrived at the hotel at 11 pm, and no one greeted us. They gave us a room with a view of the neighboring hotel (which was not critical for us, although going out to the balcony there was strong wind and noise from the ventilation systems of the neighboring hotel). It was a surprise for us to discover a mosque nearby, where prayers were held at 6 am. We asked about the meals and were directed to the night restaurant (we would have been better off not going). The waiters moved slowly and prioritized serving Europeans, ignoring us. In the end, they brought us the food after 3 minutes, and it was all cold. We returned it for them to reheat. Hungry, we returned to our room, only to find surprises: the bedding and towels were stained, gray, and worn out - it was horrifying. The safe in the room was glitching and wouldn't open. We went to the reception with our problems, but they didn't even bother to listen to us. The next day, when we met with the guide, we told her everything, and she invited guest relations. We went to the room with their Turkish manager, and they acted as if they had never encountered such issues before. The food at the bar was terrible, the drinks were diluted, and the glasses were old. The main restaurant had average food, there was no luxury, just regular food, and it was difficult to make a choice. The presentation of the dishes in the restaurant was sloppy - the appetizers were haphazardly sliced, the cakes were frozen, and the fruits were hard and unripe. The beach was small for such a number of guests, so many people spent their time at the pools. The sea was clean and moderately warm, but the entrance was awful - the sand mixed with rocks, and the water depth changed quickly, making it uncomfortable for the feet. We didn't like the hotel due to its poor service, lack of hospitality, and coziness. The staff was indifferent and unresponsive. Only the hotel grounds stood out and seemed well maintained (or well controlled). It was pleasant to look at and admire. There is also a Cat House at the hotel, where several cats reside. They roam the grounds and are calm, but some of the animals appear to be sick (eyes, ears). There are many shops near the hotel (we didn't find anything interesting there), but you can visit them for urgent needs like slippers. For shopping, I recommend the Eepo Shopping Center, Terracity Shopping Center, and Migros Shopping Center. We reached them by local bus. I can recommend Sultan Bazaar pharmacy on the hotel grounds and the one opposite the hotel building, as the others try to deceive customers (this has been tested, as it is not our first time in Turkey). Only cash payment is accepted for Russian customers (we exchanged euros for lira). For the price we paid, the hotel does not meet expectations. It requires renovation and improvement in service.

avatar

I would like to express my immense gratitude to the staff for their work with the guests. Thank you for the wonderful birthday celebration, the cake at the restaurant, and the congratulations in the room. Regarding the food, it was rather limited, perhaps because it is winter. And about the indoor pool, there is a mold problem that needs to be fixed. During our stay, there were football players in the hotel, from many teams, and they simply didn't let us sleep. They were drinking and shouting as if they were in distress, which greatly spoiled our vacation. Overall, it's okay for a one-time rest, but we will not be going there again.

The reviewer did not provide a detailed description of their experience at the hotel. I would like to share my impressions of my stay at the hotel in more detail.

Good day everyone! This year, for the first time, we went to Turkey in winter - in February. We needed a vacation because our passports were not suitable for Egypt. We chose the Sherwood hotel as our destination and we never regretted it! We were warmly welcomed, a bellboy took our suitcases to our room, and we were given a wonderful room with a view of the pools and the sea! Every morning, as soon as I woke up, I went straight to the balcony to admire the view! The hotel staff are well-trained and always greet guests with a smile! In February, there were many Germans, Turks, English speakers (I still don't know their nationality), Bulgarians, and a few Russians at the hotel. The check-in process was quick, the room was excellent, the bar was fully stocked with drinks, beer, juice, and they also always provide several types of tea, coffee, sugar, cream, and mineral water. The food was excellent despite it being off-season. There was grilled meat, cheese, plenty of vegetables, fruits, desserts, and ice cream! There is a café where you can order dishes from the menu, pastries, cakes, ice cream, cappuccinos, juices, and more starting from 1 am. The bar is simply magical! You can order cocktails not only from the menu but also ones you know, like pina colada, milk with whipped cream, and so on. The spa opens at 9 am, but unfortunately, in winter, it closes at 7 pm! The saunas are clean and very comfortable, and the hammam is wonderful! The jacuzzi and pool are always open, and the water is really warm. I enjoyed swimming there! One thing I liked was that when you swim, you always see palm trees and mandarin trees through huge panoramic windows! In general, we were lucky with the hotel - we had a wonderful rest and fell in love with it from the bottom of our hearts. We are happy to come back again and again! We were also lucky with the weather: it was +16 degrees Celsius and sunny. We walked around the Old Town (Kaleici), went to the shopping center, strolled along the waterfront, and enjoyed our vacation and tranquility! I would like to say a big thank you to the hotel staff for their warm welcome!

Today we returned from this wonderful hotel. We stumbled upon it by accident, following the advice of a travel agent, and we do not regret our choice. We flew out from Sheremetyevo Airport during the night. The airport seemed deserted. At the same time, only two flights were departing alongside us: to Sri Lanka and Yerevan. The police officers were vigilantly maintaining order and actively catching persistent violators. These were the fortunate citizens who allowed themselves to purchase alcoholic drinks and relax a bit before the flight. Tourist citizens, be vigilant! During baggage check-in, the staff forces you to assess the size of your carry-on baggage using a calibrator, and they even stick out their tongues, peering out from behind the counter, hoping that the tourist will fail this quest. We arrived safely, the Turkish border guard quickly stamped our passports. We then proceeded to collect our luggage, took the transfer, and arrived at the hotel. Despite the early check-in, we were accommodated instantly. It should be noted that the hotel was only one-fifth full. The main check-in and official opening of the season is scheduled for early May. They are eagerly awaiting our tourists. Although the hotel is positioned as European, there will be no problem with the Russian language. Starting from the reception desk and ending with the room attendant, everyone knows a few words in Russian regarding their profession. Opposite the reception desk, you can always find a hostess woman named Aiten during the day. You can ask her any question or address her with your problem. There were no more than a dozen of our compatriots at the hotel, and they did not seek communication, but we found company among foreigners and had good conversations thanks to the Google Translate app during the evenings. By the way, I am still angry at my parents for not punishing me at school when I skipped foreign language classes. There are more than enough bars at the hotel. We didn't manage to visit any of them during our 8-day stay. Besides, the concept of the hotel implies that you do not need to wander around the hotel much. Waiters find you on their own and ask for your preferences. The "roller drinker" people, as we called them, take care that you do not exert energy and do not leave the sunbed near one of the pools. After a few days, they already remember your favorite drink, and you don't even need to say the name. It's great! I might be mistaken, but I counted 5 types of bottled beer in the bars, and I couldn't count the number of strong drinks - I lost count. The hotel is preparing for the summer influx of guests - the workers are planting greenery, trimming shrubs and trees. They are hiring Russian-speaking staff. I want to personally mention the animator Anastasia. Nastya is a very responsive girl: she told us the daily program and translated during communication with foreigners at the evening entertainment. She knows the city well, knows where everything is located, and can answer any of your questions. Sports entertainment is her "specialty". The first pool on the right when going to the sea is warm, the others warm up by noon. But the weather is getting better every day, so I will not focus on the water aspect of the hotel. Towels are provided on the way to the sea, opposite the main restaurant, in a room above the pool with a temperature of +16. We only swam in the sea from the middle of our vacation. At the beginning, it was cold, and I still do not allow myself to drink pure vodka or whiskey during the day. You will definitely meet Aslan during your vacation. He offers free trips to Antalya for shopping - a shopping man, and Russian is his native language, and he is happy to answer questions not only about shopping. We exchanged currency for Turkish lira with him, with a small percentage for him. Don't worry if you forget toothbrushes, razors, shaving foam, needles with thread, and other necessary items at home - everything will be provided in the room. The minibar is replenished daily as it is "emptied", but it is not really needed in the grand scheme of things. If it's not too much trouble, say hello to the animator named David. You will recognize him immediately - a dark-skinned master of darts from Kenya. You can greet him with the word "Jambo" and say, "Akuna Matata Zanzibar!" He probably won't remember my name, but he should remember the name Tatiana. He knows a dozen phrases in Russian but won't be able to answer your questions. There are plenty of shops near the hotel, and a shopping center with "astronomical" prices. I should note that the soundproofing in the rooms is terrible. If your neighbors above you come back from a night disco in the city, you will hear their movements in their room and other sounds quite well. The balcony door also does not offer much protection against the bass from the music and the loud shouts of the drunk Germans. But this is insignificant compared to everything else. Have a great vacation, everyone!

Excellent hotel. We were checked in upon arrival at 6am without any problems. The room was in great condition with a partial sea view in the second building, with no extra charge. The food at the hotel is excellent, they have absolutely everything (fish, meat, chicken, tongue, shrimp, very tasty cheeses, fruits, vegetables, soups), you definitely won't go hungry. The hotel offers 24/7 dining. The ice cream in the packages is very delicious. The bars serve both local and imported alcohol (whatever you ask for, they will pour), and the beer is bottled (Bud, Miller, Beks, Effes). The beach is clean (sandy), there were always enough sunbeds, there are plenty of them on the beach. There is one issue though, the hotel needs to work on its animation, it's a bit weak. It wasn't important to us, so the hotel is still a 5!!! Highly recommend!!!

We spent our winter vacation in Sherwood with a group of friends. We arrived and checked in without any issues, our room had a view of the neighboring hotel. The furniture was worn out, but they quickly provided us with a cot for our daughter. The bathroom was fine and the plumbing didn't leak. The room cleaning was average and the mini bar was only restocked occasionally. We didn't like the absence of Russian channels on the TV, so we had to watch Russian-speaking channels from CIS countries. The resort area was quiet, many pools were empty. The heated outdoor pool had cold water. We often went to the heated indoor pool to warm up. The beach was nice, with sandy shores and the water temperature was 18 degrees Celsius, refreshing but still swimmable. The beach bar opened at 11 and had limited options, the bartenders were not very enthusiastic. The lobby bar had friendly bartenders, it was nice to sit there with our group. The food in the dining hall was excellent by Turkish standards, but nothing extraordinary. Personally, I'm not very demanding, lentil soup, pide, salads, meat, and fish were always available, so it was hard to go hungry. I made friends with the waitstaff, they provided decent service. The children's entertainment was lacking, there were evening programs, but they didn't impress. Maybe it wasn't the peak season. There was a Migros store across the road with reasonable prices. We also liked the pharmacy in the shopping center, they had normal prices and accepted Mir cards. We went shopping at Antalya Outlet and Terra City. The prices were great in winter, Terra City was particularly impressive, but we had some trouble with the cards/tickets in the surrounding areas. We had a great vacation, thanks to the hotel staff for the experience. However, the hotel prices in the summer become outrageously high (((

Visited Turkey 25 times. In Sherwood for the fourth time. This year the hotels in Lara were half empty, except for some with lower prices. Spent a full 15 days with two families. The rooms were ready from early morning, close-by. I will write a comparison with June 222. Almost nothing has changed. Probably because at the beginning the occupancy was 45%, the restaurant's assortment was slightly limited. Less: lamb, cheese, nuts, yogurt, cherries. There was no cherry ice cream at all. But they gave strawberries, which were absent last year. After the hotel filled up with tourists, it got better. Overall, the food is good. A la carte restaurants have improved. Particularly liked the Mongolian restaurant. Room cleaning is normal, but not excellent. The grounds and pools are excellent. The beach is almost empty, couldn't even find anyone for volleyball. Cons: they still can't set up tables on the beach near the sunbeds, there are few trash bins and the lobby furniture has become very old. The hotel definitely needs renovation. The clientele: initially more British, then Russians (from 5 rooms to 4, then to 12). The tour was from Pegas, wanted to buy excursions, turns out they don't have what we wanted this year. Had to buy from another operator. Flew to Northern Cyprus, really liked it. Arranged the transfers and taxi trips in advance at the car rental office. Used it seven times, very satisfied. The hotel's strongest point is its staff. Many recognized us, it was very nice. Everyone we interacted with immediately helped, served us, and inquired about our stay. I would like to mention the waiters in the restaurant hall 16+, the animators - David, Anastasia. The best are the guest relations department: Kristina and Aiten. As regular guests, they provided us with many different bonuses. The vacation went great. Ready to come back next year. Thank you for your attention and care.

This is not UA at all! It feels like everything is there, but in fact, it's just for show. For example, there is guest relations, but it doesn't work. There is always an empty seat, and only once we were finally able to invite a girl named Kristina, but there was no dialogue (there was another person with an active position, but unfortunately, I couldn't communicate with her). The cleaning seemed alright, the cleaning lady even mopped the floors, but for some reason, she didn't dust. The waiters and bartenders looked very tired. They can't make alcoholic cocktails at all! Bistro 7/21 is completely fictional, there is no possibility to eat at the hotel 24/7. The children's table didn't work. In my opinion, the management is not doing enough. If there were a checklist and employee performance assessments, with a focus on hospitality, many issues would have been addressed and the overall impression would have been better.

Returned a couple of days ago from vacation and finally found the time to write a review. I will be objective and honest, as usual. The hotel is good, not luxurious or exclusive, but good. It's a typical 5-star Kundu, each with its own pros and cons. It's a bit far from the city center but it is possible to reach. The atmosphere is very warm and cozy, with a general comfort. The family room was nice with bathrobes and slippers. The territory is clean and pleasant. The spa is nice, warm, and fairly clean. There is a warm outdoor pool. The food in the main restaurant is delicious, with multiple halls and bars. The à la carte options are fancy and tasty. There is also a good bistro for late lunches. They have a good selection of sparkling wine from breakfast till night. They have some decent imported drinks, but you need to control your consumption. There is a lot of staff and the internet works excellently everywhere. That's about the good parts. Now for the nuances. The hotel is quite old, which is evident in the rooms, plumbing, furniture, and especially the soft furniture in restaurants, bars, and halls. The room cleaning and replenishment of the mini-bar and toiletries could be better. There are broken hangers. They only provide shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. The staff, especially the bar staff, are not very reliable. Oh, and surprisingly, the cocktails are not very tasty if you want to nitpick. As for the daytime animation, I can't say much as we weren't interested. In the evenings, we enjoyed a couple of musical nights, which were pleasant. Nonetheless, the overall impression of the vacation is very positive! And a special thanks and greetings to the wonderful Aiten from the Guest Service Department! It's a pity we couldn't meet before leaving!

We were at the hotel from January 3rd to November 6th. Check-in is only at 2 pm, no earlier. The hotel is quite tired, and the rooms are in need of renovation. But otherwise, everything is decent: well-kept grounds, heated outdoor and indoor pools, which is very important in the winter period, a nice pier, and a clean beach. The food is standard, no one went hungry, with different types of fish served every day (trout, dorado, boiled, grilled, fried, steamed), all kinds of meats (veal, chicken, turkey, lamb), there is a children's table (vegetable purees, kefir, yogurts, fruit milk, juices in cans and boxes), a diet table (boiled potatoes, rice, broccoli, vegetables), and milk porridge in the morning (semolina, oatmeal, buckwheat). The restaurant also has 16+ halls. There is also a 16+ pool on a hill, it's really cool there, but the water is cold. But you can't hear the kids there)). The outdoor pool is in the shade by 4 pm despite the heating. But taking two steps, you find yourself in a covered heated pool and saunas, which have free admission. Very convenient. Drinks: only Red Label, Black Label, and Ballantines imported alcohol, Absolute vodka, and I think I saw Cinzano. Bottled Efes beer. The rest is local. There is a choice of one cocktail. Non-alcoholic cocktails are based on soda and milk. Not all towels are fresh, and the bathrobes are generally in poor condition, but it didn't really bother us. We went to Aytan, they replaced the torn bathrobes and even brought a bathrobe for the child)). The cleaning was perfect. A few lira or one dollar worked miracles. Overall, we are very satisfied with the vacation. The weather was wonderful and the sea was very clean. There is a Migros supermarket and a pharmacy near the hotel, where Mir cards are accepted for payment.

My mother, sister, and I stayed at this hotel in 2017 and decided to return this year. However, upon arrival, we realized that it was not the best decision. We were greeted by a very unpleasant lady (a Turkish woman, unfortunately, I did not remember her name) who was not very welcoming. She said that our room was being cleaned and would be ready by 2:00 PM. Since we arrived at 12:30 PM, we went to have lunch. At 1:30 PM, we approached her again to inquire about the readiness of our room. She again replied that the room was being cleaned. Well, we waited until 2:10 PM, received our key cards, and went to settle into our cleaned room. It was so "cleaned" that there were small clumps of hair on the floor, and neither the bedside table nor the desk was wiped down. And the fridge was leaking so much that a puddle had already formed on the floor. Our vacation started with quarrels. This lady at the reception pretended not to understand what I was saying. After 3 or 4 phone calls, we finally found a Russian-speaking staff member. A wonderful girl named Aiten. She was the only bright spot in this hotel! She explained what we were dissatisfied with. They repeated the cleaning, but in the end, I ended up cleaning our room myself. They changed the fridge (from bad to worse). Well, okay, we accepted it. Nothing has changed in the hotel in 5 years, even though they advertise "FULL renovation" everywhere. In reality, it turned out to be only partial and only affected the pools and the courtyard. The furniture is old, as well as the towels/bed linen/bathrobes and plumbing. It is unpleasant to use all of these. The food is monotonous and meager. The meat is scarce. In the last few days, we only had rice and pasta for meals. The desserts were mediocre. There is no longer the variety that was offered before. The only positive thing was that this time there was a wide selection of fruits. The food at the bars is also mediocre. The burgers/kebabs are inedible. They are spicy and undercooked. The gözleme was delicious! And the ice cream, which is in packaging (not in scoops), was amazing! Overall, this hotel is no longer worth its price (18,000 for 2 people).

Returned from the third visit to the hotel. Compared to last year, it has become even better. Perhaps because it was the beginning of October and there were Covid restrictions. We arrived at the hotel in the morning and our room with a sea view was already prepared for us. There was a welcome set of wine, fruits, and sweets. The room had bathrobes, slippers, and all bathroom amenities. The room cleaning was good, we did not find any flaws. Everything in the room was working properly. The territory was clean and well-maintained. We did not manage to go to the amphitheater for the performances, so we do not know what happened there. Live music was played every day in two places: before the restaurant during dinner and after near the beach. There was animation near the pool and on the beach, such as volleyball and boules. The food was better and more diverse. They said there was a new chef. All kinds of meat, different lamb dishes. Several types of fish. There were many different fruits, we had cherries, watermelon, melon, and pineapple. There was no strawberries, but they brought them to our room personally. In general, it is impossible to describe everything about the food. Everything was delicious. In the snack restaurant, we could order from the menu as before. There were many waiters, they served quickly and knew what to bring. We dined in the 16+ area. The waitresses were excellent. Many people recognized us from last year, it was very pleasant. There were plenty of spots on the beach. The beach chairs were good. The beach was constantly cleaned. The entrance to the sea was the same as in the rest of Lara. As for the drawbacks, there were hardly any tables near the beach chairs and trash bins. The biggest drawback is the need for renovation. While the rooms were fine, the lobby needs not only new furniture but also new elevators. But this did not affect our vacation in any way. We had a great time. As repeat guests, we received various pleasant bonuses. I want to say separately about the staff in the guest department. Wonderful girls, Kristina and Aiten, well done. Also, thank you to Elene Eniz. I definitely recommend visiting this hotel. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will answer.
