We were here in June. Overall, we liked the hotel, except for the rooms without a balcony. However, after 3 days they did offer a room with a balcony and we moved.) Many pools, food everywhere. The only downside is that the alcohol is worse than at the Sherwood Lara. We would come back for the second time.🙂

avatar

Thank you for your feedback!) Did you have to pay extra for a different room?

avatar

No, when I approached the reception, they said that I needed to pay an additional 50,000 for the room. I went to the guest relations, there are very nice girls. Say that you smoke, and it's very uncomfortable that the room doesn't have a balcony. The hotel was fully booked, had to wait for a while. By the way, the $50 at the reception during check-in didn't help, there simply were no available rooms.

Can you please tell me, have you been with a child? How is the animation for children there?

avatar

The evening animation was boring. There was a mini disco, but all the songs were played in the same sequence for a whole week. There were no shows for children. Just a mini disco and that's it. During the day, there was nothing either. Only the kids' club was open.

On food - weak 5*, though there are grilled wings near the pool, pizza is available, no salmon for breakfast, no fresh juices, machine coffee, very few options for children's table, no canned food for children, no seafood in 10 days, otherwise everything is good. Visited in June 2023. Daytime and evening activities are held, rooms are cleaned. Those who go on vacation with a positive attitude, the hotel will suit.

avatar

We rested in April. We really enjoyed it. Polite staff, clean rooms. The attitude towards Russian tourists was excellent. Animators were working, there was live music. The menu was also great.

avatar

We stayed at Fame Residence Lara & SPA from April 19th to April 26th. The tour operator was Intourist. We arrived at the hotel around 11 am and were checked into our room by 11:30 am. I would like to thank the reception staff for their efficiency, friendliness, and willingness to help with anything we needed. The hotel grounds are not very large, but they are filled with greenery and flowers. It is always clean. There are plenty of sunbeds both at the beach and by the pool. The animation team works hard to make the stay diverse and interesting. They are active both during the day and in the evening. For information about the food, please see the attached photo. Thank you to all the staff for a fantastic time!

We stayed at this hotel from 25.11.23 to 4.12.23 and were given a nice Deluxe room, which was very beautiful. However, for five days, they didn't clean the room properly even once (as seen from the photos). It turned out that the hotel was closing before the New Year (no one informed us about this, thanks to the annex for that), and the hotel decided that they didn't have to feed us much (there was food, but not enough and not very tasty), and towards the end, there was nothing at all! The heated outdoor pool was not working, although why would it be needed then, as it is intended for the winter concept, is also not clear! The indoor pool was also not heated properly, and the hammam was only slightly warm! We paid 17 thousand for this and were extremely disappointed, it used to be much better before. The territory is beautiful and well-maintained. But nothing was working, except for the main restaurant, and there was even nowhere to have a snack if you missed lunch! Thank God, three days before our departure, they took us to another hotel, but we had to fight for it because they tried to sell us a bad hotel!

avatar

Nice sunny hotel. The territory may be small, but it is well maintained! The staff at the reception are very friendly and always ready to help resolve your problems. We were not satisfied with the room without a balcony - they moved us the next day. Mehmet Bey and Mehriban - a low bow to you for pleasant and professional communication! You are doing great, we want to come to you every morning! And in the restaurant, interestingly, the chef approached several times to inquire if everything is to our liking. There is a cuisine for all tastes! There are many pools for those who enjoy this type of vacation. The rooms are adequately cleaned if you ask for it. The sea: yes, it can be challenging with children - it gets deep right away. There are enough sun loungers for everyone. Cute kittens make you smile and want to interact. We would love to come back here.

Our friends have been choosing this hotel for their vacation for the past 2 years and they always speak highly of it, so we became curious about why they are so satisfied with this hotel and we believe we have uncovered the secret: it's the staff. Now, let's go through it step by step: we arrived around 1 o'clock in the morning and were greeted with champagne, various sweets, and music, so our vacation started with a wonderful mood. Regarding this matter, I want to express special thanks to the girls from Guest Relations - Elif and Mehriban, as well as Nedim and Selahattin for their friendly welcome. We immediately went for breakfast and then received our room, which took about 4 minutes. The rooms have been renovated, so everything is new and fresh, and we liked the interior design and style. The territory, although compact, is well-planned, and has everything you may need. It is also very pleasant that there is a heated pool both outside and inside the hotel. Throughout the day, managers walk around the territory and keep everything under control, which we haven't seen in other hotels, and we give them a big round of applause for that. The whole staff is friendly and conscientious, everyone tries to do their best to make the guests satisfied, and we also didn't notice any discrimination towards Russians. In a word, the vacation was excellent and we don't think we will be able to choose another hotel from now on. Highly recommend!

A lot has already been written positively about this hotel! I'll just add a couple of my personal impressions... 1. Reception. There are such wonderful guys like NEDIM and MEHMET (photo attached)!!! They ALWAYS HELP, give advice!!! Contact them! BIG THANKS!!! 2. Guest Relations MEHRIBAN. Hello, beauty!!! Very kind, responsive, and positive girl. Always in touch. Quickly solved all small problems. THANK YOU!!! 3. Bars. MUSTAFA, MURAT, EMRULAH, SIBEL, KAN - they are the best! They work like bees, always smiling. Well done! The biggest plus of this hotel is its staff! Even the cleaners smile and greet you. BRAVO!!! And yes, there are some staff members who clearly don't notice Russians... Well, whatever, let it be. Overall, it was a great vacation!!! I'm satisfied with the hotel!

Last year, my parents stayed at this hotel and were very satisfied, so this year, we decided to try this hotel as well and we were not disappointed. The hotel underwent renovation this year, so all the contacts are new and cozy. The exterior area, though small, is well-planned and has everything you may need. The hotel is also located 2 minutes away from the airport, and it's easy to reach the shopping center and city center by bus from here. I especially want to mention the hotel staff, which is the biggest plus of the hotel. We were greeted by Nedim and Selahattin with champagne and various sweets, and also a huge thank you to Elif and Mehriban for the cheerful and pleasant reception accompanied by music. Thanks to the pleasant reception from the very beginning, our mood was uplifted and the entire vacation went smoothly. All our wishes were fulfilled, and it's really nice to know that there are people you can turn to for any question. Once Famé, Famé forever.

We stayed at this hotel in April and I would like to share some good impressions. The hotel is located near the airport, the territory is compact but cozy, and it has absolutely everything you need. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, especially the bathroom. I would also like to express my gratitude to the hotel staff, especially to the reception and guest service departments. They tried their best to make our stay wonderful, and all our wishes and whims were fulfilled, for which we are very grateful. We plan to return to this hotel this autumn. Special thanks to Nedim and Mehmet.

avatar

First time staying at Fame Residence Lara hotel and honestly we were pleasantly surprised. Upon arrival, Nedim and his friends greeted us with champagne and treats, and Elif and Mehiban from Guest Relations played music for us, which was something we haven't experienced elsewhere. It was clear that our stay would be perfect. There were no issues during check-in, and at the reception, there is Mehmet who speaks Russian and understands everything. The staff is also very friendly. The room we were given had been renovated and we really liked the new style. The food is diverse and delicious, and you won't go hungry anywhere on the hotel grounds. We highly recommend this hotel.

avatar

We have stayed at this hotel 3-4 times already and have always been extremely satisfied, so this time we decided to come here again and, of course, we were not disappointed. After the renovation, all the rooms became much more beautiful and spacious, especially the makeup area and the bathroom. The staff is pleasant and friendly, the workers are always cleaning and washing something throughout the day. It is so nice to come back to clean rooms. I also want to mention that Elif and Mehriban from the guest service department, as well as Nazly, Aslı, Nedim, and Selahettin from the reception, are very polite - it is always pleasant to approach them with any request. They respond very quickly to any questions, which is very pleasing. You could say once you've experienced FAME, FAME forever. We will come again and recommend to everyone.

Hello. I rested in April of the year 223. I chose the Lara and Kundu districts for my vacation 12 years ago, and I still choose hotels there based on price and conditions. Shops, pharmacies, and bus stops are nearby, allowing for independent movement. Perga is not far away and can be easily reached by taxi. Kaleici and Terra City are accessible by bus. The archaeological museum is about a 3 km walk from the bus stop or can be reached by tram. The Duden Waterfall is also nearby. This time, I chose the Fame Residence Lara hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 8 am and were checked in immediately. Our room was on the 7th floor with a balcony. It was small, fresh, and newly renovated, with a view of the city. When the balcony door is closed, there is no noise from the street. However, the room was adjacent to another room, and there was no soundproofing, so we could hear the neighbors well. It all depends on who your neighbors are. The room had slippers, bathrobes, a minibar, a kettle, a safe, and shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion in the shower. There was plenty of space for belongings and an adequate number of power outlets. The beach was excellent, but the sea was cold. There was also a heated pool. The Wi-Fi on the premises was poor. The food was varied, plentiful, tasty, and there were many places where you could confirm this. A big hello to Mustafa (the head chef) from me. He's a pro. I thank all the others who delighted us with their culinary skills and expertise, including the waiters and bartenders. The waitstaff did an excellent job. To Osman Arici, a special thank you for always having a great attitude! I want to highlight the work of the hotel staff who maintain order. The entertainment was calm and the people I interacted with were wonderful. Leo and Goktug (who organized shooting activities), Zubeyda and Hatidzhe (who led dancing activities), Serhat (I didn't play football with him, but I think all the sporty kids in the hotel love him), and Osman (the towel guy) - all of them were friendly, smiling, and so nice. I want to specifically mention the guest relations service. Mehriban is the perfect employee in that position. Go to her with any question. The guests were mostly from the Netherlands and Germany. I didn't see any interethnic problems or discrimination based on nationality. Knowledge of foreign languages is welcomed, as you can engage in conversations with everyone on various topics. They ask questions and are very interested in Russia. Overall, in terms of the hotel, it's like meeting an open, kind, cheerful, and warm-hearted person. It's a great hotel in its category! I wish success and prosperity to the team and the hotel! And I wish peace to everyone! Without a doubt, I will return if I have the opportunity.

I cannot be objective about the service ratings because there were bedbugs in the hotel!!! The first room was on a very noisy street... on the third day, I asked to be moved, and they gave me a room with a view of the pool... on the first night, I woke up with bites, intense itching; the same thing happened on the second day. I blamed mosquitoes, but the bites were in rows... I couldn't believe that there could be bedbugs in a five-star hotel!!! But on the third night, I crushed one on the sheets in my sleep!!! It was my second-to-last night!! I called the maid, showed her, and she wasn't very surprised; she said they would treat it... I went to the reception in a panic. They offered to change my room and launder my clothes. The receptionist went to the manager, and when they both came back, they tried to assure me that it was mosquitoes... I didn't want to change rooms because I read that bedbugs only bite every 5-7 days, so I thought I had already fed all of them... I didn't sleep at all on my last night... I arrived home and my suitcase with clothes is still on the balcony. I'm taking out my things, washing them, then ironing them to make sure I don't bring them into my apartment... My vacation is ruined!!

The hotel is excellent! I arrived at 4 am, took a taxi and immediately came to the hotel, which was very pleasant, I was checked in right away. At checkout, they also extended the time without any problems 😌 There are shops near the hotel where you can buy transport cards and SIM cards, which makes getting around easier. Without any difficulty, I went by bus to Antalya)) The bus number is LC7 (you can take it to the city center and Terre City shopping center). The hotel staff speaks several languages, including Russian, which is great. The price-quality ratio is absolutely matching!

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

The hotel completely corresponds to the tour operator's information, we were checked-in very quickly, despite the early arrival (at 7 am), and were given an excellent, clean standard room in a quiet location, with a side sea view. The design renovation is fantastic, especially the mirrors that the ladies will appreciate ㉌ The hotel is family-friendly, 99.9% of the guests are mature couples and families with children. There is practically no young crowd. There are plenty of bars and restaurants, especially the delicious coffee and tea at the coffee bar. All the bars have a pleasant atmosphere. We would like to specifically mention the excellent work of the main restaurant - the selection is huge, with daily options of fish, meat, and dietary dishes. We are very surprised by the previous reviews stating that someone found the choices lacking - for us, who are experienced in restaurants with a variety of world cuisines, there is plenty to appreciate in this hotel: Chef Mustafa delighted us with fresh, delicious dishes excellently presented. He is very friendly, open to interacting with guests, and customer-oriented. The barista Umutcan makes an amazing latte at the coffee shop - this café in general has the best coffee in the whole hotel, and the service is wonderful. The hotel is awesome!

I stayed with my family in October of this year. I will briefly describe it. The rooms were all fresh, with no signs of heavy usage. We stayed in a large room, but it had a view of the road, even the highway. If you opened the window, the noise from the street was like in Moscow, with cars constantly passing by. Moreover, the road was only about 2 meters away from the hotel room. The minibar had 2 Pepsis, 2 Fantas, and 2 bottles of water. But there was no beer or anything else. The beach was big and wide, with plenty of sunbeds. However, this is the only hotel in the area without a pier. All the other hotels have one. There is a volleyball court, and people play constantly. The hotel grounds are not very large, with a straight path from the hotel to the sea. To the right of the road are the dining areas and activity zones, and to the left are the pools. If you are traveling with children in strollers, there is not much space to walk around. There are many pools and sunbeds, and one pool is heated. The water in the other pools was not very warm, rather cold. There are normal slides, and they operate on a schedule. The food and drinks are a big downside. It is nowhere near a 5-star level. This is the first hotel out of my probably 2 trips to Turkey (only 5-star hotels) where there was no bacon for breakfast, but this is just an example. All the dishes for lunch and dinner are a typical assortment of small, chopped pieces of something with some small pieces of meat. And everything is heavily dressed with an unclear sauce. And there are daily macaroni dishes cooked outside with a composition of only 3 components. Do not expect any meat, at best it will be fried minced meat or fried turkey. But there are constantly 2 types of olives in the menu. Fried fish is served in the same way every day. It seems like they bought it for a whole year and don't know what to do with it. There were days when I didn't understand what I could even choose from the available dishes for lunch because my taste receptors didn't send signals to my brain about what kind of food it was. In those cases, I would choose a tried and true option: a salad with tomatoes and rice (noodles). The fruits provided were apples, pears, grapes, oranges, and unripe melons. As for drinks, there is beer, local wine (red and white), and local rum, which are used to make all the so-called cocktails. The preparation of the cocktails also falls under the category of "I made it with what I had." Overall, I would give this hotel a maximum of 4 stars. The price/quality ratio does not correspond to what was advertised.

My friend and I are vacationing at our favorite hotel for the second year. We would like to note the special attitude of the hotel staff towards the guests. We were warmly greeted with a glass of champagne and delicious Turkish delight, and it was very pleasant to be remembered. Special thanks to Mehmet (Front Desk Manager) for his sense of humor and understanding. We would also like to express our gratitude to our dear Mehriban (Guest Relations) who did everything to make us feel comfortable. We have stayed in various hotels in Turkey, but we have never encountered such a heartfelt attitude towards the guests. Upon check-in, we were pleasantly surprised with wine and fruits in the room. What caught our attention the most is that the staff at this hotel has hardly changed, which says a lot. We felt at home and would love to come back again. The cuisine is excellent, you will definitely not go hungry. The evening shows are fantastic and the live music is superb! Try the delicious Turkish coffee made at the lobby bar. And in the evening, the bartenders will make you a very tasty special cocktail. The entertainment is superb! Everyone will find something of interest to do. We give the hotel a 5+++ rating and can't wait to come back here again with love, Inna and Tatiana.

My husband and I went on vacation in October. I'll start with the positive aspects: the hotel is located 2 minutes from the airport, and it is also conveniently close to the shopping center (Mall, Terra City). The hotel itself is nice both in appearance and inside, with polite staff at the reception. However, they do not speak Russian because the hotel is focused on Germans, whom I will write about later. We were assigned to room 3267 on the 3rd floor, with a view of a busy road. However, we live in a metropolis, so the noise was not bothersome for us. The room was small but cozy. We were given a room without a balcony, but with a French balcony. We could have paid €15 to switch to a room with a normal balcony, but we decided not to, as this one was sufficient. All the toiletries, coffee and tea supplies, and slippers were provided in the room, EXCEPT bathrobes, which seemed to be only given to Germans. The mini bar was also limited for a "5-star" hotel, with only a couple of drinks and water provided. FOOD!!! This was a huge downside for us, and even more disappointing for me. As a person who prefers savory over sweet, and meat over chicken, I didn't see any meat dishes besides chicken during the 11 days of our stay. Someone in a review mentioned "chicken under chicken under chicken sauce," and that's exactly how it was. The food was monotonous and tasteless every day. I tried to eat dairy porridge by adding more butter and sugar, but it still tasted awful. Even on themed nights such as Fish Night and Turkish Night, the food was the same as on ordinary days?+?. It was really strange to find only boiled fish on Fish Night, or fried ground beef instead of meat on Turkish Night, with a strong and unclear seasoning that I couldn't eat. As for alcoholic beverages, the situation was also sad. The wine (red and white) and champagne were mediocre, but the beer was okay. As for fruits, there were apples, mandarins, plums, pears, and melons (always green and hard). The tables were always dirty, either because the staff didn't have time to clean or because they were tired. The hotel was overcrowded, with mainly German guests. I won't say anything bad, I'll just say that there were moments when I wanted to visit them in their rooms at 4 in the morning. The beach was perhaps the biggest highlight of our vacation. The entrance was great, and the water was warm. The weather was consistently around 29-30 degrees Celsius. There were plenty of sunbeds, considering the large number of people. There was no pier, and the beach area was not particularly large, but there were always enough sunbeds.

We decided to take a break for the autumn holidays and chose to stay at the Fame Residence Lara & Spa Hotel 5* based on reviews and recommendations. Well, we flew with Turkish Airlines and arrived quickly, reaching the hotel around 8 in the morning. The first "joy" was that the hotel was full and they said check-in would be at 12. We were actually checked in at exactly 12. We were given room 164, on the first floor with a view of the Dolphin and the air conditioning units, which made so much noise. What can I say about the hotel? There were a lot of people, mostly Germans. Russians made up only 3% of the guests. However, there were Russians and Ukrainians among the Germans in the hotel, those who moved there 2-25 years ago. I was initially shocked seeing couples on the beach speaking in German, then speaking in Russian among themselves, and then speaking in Polish with their friends. But it didn't bother me. I even made friends with some of them, although not all of them were as friendly. The majority of the guests were of a high standard. Many Germans came with families, with one to fifteen people (two or three generations and from both sides). The restaurant was disappointing. There was food, but there wasn't much to choose from. Everything wasn't very tasty, just mashed potatoes, pasta, and rice. The meat mostly consisted of sausages, meatballs, and ground meat. There were themed days like Asian, seafood, Turkish, and Italian, where they added extra dishes outside and it attracted a crowd. The rest of the menu didn't change. Orange juice cost 2 euros in the morning. There was no Turkish coffee in the morning at all, only vending machines. Considering the price of 416 thousand rubles for the vacation, it seemed strange. The coffee in the beach café wasn't tasty either. There was mostly fast food, which wasn't very delicious either. The fruits included plums, melons, apples, pears, oranges, and mandarins. The sea was warm, but it was October. If you enter the water from the center of the beach, there was always a rainbow film on the right side, next to the boats. The sunbeds were placed very close to each other. The cats were bold and could jump onto your lap or on the sunbed without anyone shooing them away. They also comfortably lay around in the reception area. In the lobby, you couldn't get any drinks in the evening. The Germans sat with their feet stretched out on the chairs, some of them even wore shoes or were barefoot. It was disgusting... There were many of them! We asked the waitress if this was normal and she even went to get her phone and used a translator to communicate in Turkish. She said it wasn't normal, she didn't like it either, but she couldn't do anything about it. So, we concluded that there were some rude people on the vacation, regardless of their nationality. The hotel didn't have much outdoor space at all. There was only one path to the sea and another one if you went around the hills, that was it. Even the hills had sunbeds arranged in five rows. The hotel was a disappointment, rated at 4 stars. We also flew with Turkish Airlines and they rescheduled the flight from 8:30 to 9, then to 1. We ended up leaving at 1:30. There were a lot of people and everyone was sitting on the floor. Apparently, many flights were delayed.

We express our immense gratitude to all the hotel staff! Very attentive and responsive workers. Excellent cuisine, many thanks to the kitchen chef Mustafa! We acknowledge the work of Aslı, Mihmet, and Burak! In the coffee house, Nazlı and Elif! Gulsağan cleaned the room for the second year, very clean. Thank you! We have been here for the fifth time and we are leaving in a great mood today. We hope to see you next year. We cannot list everyone, but at least some of them. Nazim, Emrola, Pehmed, Ouz, Effie. Thank you all! See you soon! Special thanks to Durmuş!

Great vacation in a good hotel. We were 3 adults + a 5-year-old child. Regarding the room: we were given a room on the 1st floor, which was actually like the 2nd floor because there was a reception and restaurant below us. I have attached a photo of the view from the room. The room was recently renovated, everything was clean and beautiful. It had 1 double bed, 1 single bed, and a sofa. There is probably no soundproofing. At 7 am, when the restaurant opened, the movement of chairs began and it was like having an alarm clock every morning. Luckily, my family members didn't mind it, but it bothered me. The internet connection was average, sometimes it worked, sometimes it was slow. The territory of the hotel is well-maintained. There are many cats and since my daughter is fond of them, of course, she went to pet them and came back with a scratch. So it's better not to approach them. During the day, the temperature ranged from 4 to 45 degrees Celsius, and at night it was 35 degrees Celsius. It was hot. There were bottled water and refreshing drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and food located throughout the hotel. It was very difficult to feed the child with normal food when there were french fries everywhere. For adults, the food was diverse, as long as we didn't eat the same thing every day and tried something new. Every day there were different themed dinners (Turkish, Italian, seafood, etc.). For the last three days, we had lunch outside, so we didn't need to change clothes. There were flatbreads (with cheese, potatoes, spinach), stuffed potatoes with various fillings, grilled vegetables, fruits, delicious Viennese waffles, and more. There was also delicious iced coffee at the coffee house. There were many vacationers. It became difficult to find a free sunbed by 9 am. The animation was not intrusive. Those who wanted to participate could join. My daughter didn't want to go to the mini club, she preferred to learn how to swim (and she succeeded, hooray!). In the evening, she went to the mini disco. After the mini disco, there were performances or a general disco every evening. The water slides were not too extreme, but still suitable for children over 7 years old. We were afraid to let our 5-year-old daughter go on them, even though we saw other kids flying out with armbands. There was a lack of slides for children between 2 and 7 years old. The beach really needed a pier. In the evening, especially when the waves picked up, it got crowded. Overall, the hotel lived up to our expectations. We were not disappointed. We had a great and enjoyable vacation!

In one review, I read the phrase of a tourist "this is not Adalia," it stuck with me, and while on vacation this year, we repeated it more than once. Let's take everything in order. The flight with Turkish Airlines went according to plan, everything as usual. Delay in the overnight flight, blame it on the drones. We arrived at the hotel around 11 o'clock. They immediately offered rooms with French balconies. After some negotiations, we temporarily settled in a suite, and after two days, we were given two rooms on the 3rd floor with a sea view. Huge thanks to Mehmet for this. On the way back, we had a late check-out, someone wrote that the hotel does not offer late check-out. They do, just like in other hotels, it costs 15 euros per hour, and the room is extended until 6 pm. The hotel territory stretches towards the sea. Everything is very compact. On the way to the sea, on one side, there are pools, on the other side, bars. I must say that all the pools have a depth of 1.4 meters, except for the pool with slides, which is 1.2 meters deep. There is also a small pool for children on the territory (it is the only one and it is small). The rooms are fresh and bright. It is noticeable that they have been renovated. The bathroom has shower amenities: gel, shampoo. The children in our room had toothbrushes, shaving accessories, and bathrobes. Unfortunately, we didn't get any. We are used to having gel in a dispenser, so you can use as much as you want. It's not the same here; they gave us three small bottles of gel upon check-in, and that was it. I was shocked. Towels, according to reviews, are changed for everyone, but it seems like they skipped us. If they changed them once during our entire stay, it would be wonderful. The beach. The area by the sea is huge, with plenty of sunbeds, but most of them are in the sun. Since the temperature in August was well over thirty degrees, everyone tried to occupy the sunbeds in the shade. We went there at 8 in the morning, and we were far from being the first. At that time, most of the sunbeds by the pool were also occupied. The towels are placed there, but there may be no people until noon. The staff does not control this, which is bad. Food. This is a separate topic of conversation. Those who write that everything is great and there is an abundance - don't believe them! The first time we came back from Turkey, we had lost weight. I don't need an abundance of food; the main thing is a piece of meat, grilled whole, no matter what kind. Whether it's chicken or beef. There was none of that in this hotel for nine days. One day (fish evening) they had grilled tuna, and another day there was turkey kebab. There were also Italian evening (lots of pizza and pasta in all variations) and Turkish night with lots of sweets. On the other days, there was a lot of chicken stewed with various vegetables and sauces. The fried fish wasn't great, and there were also chicken wings or, as we call it in Russia, a soup set. They managed to fry it on the grill, but of course, gnawing on bones during a vacation is not very satisfying. When you enter the restaurant, the first impression is abundance, but when you walk around with a plate, you realize that there is nothing to eat. The first hotel where we got food poisoning, and I know what it was from. It's not rotavirus; it's specifically the not fresh food. The last day, before leaving, the lunch was the worst. There were 3 types of potatoes in various variations, 3 types of pasta, fried fish, and stewed chicken. It was simply a catastrophe!! The only thing I'm grateful for is the chicken nuggets, which were always available for my grandson, and our child and all the children enjoyed eating them. We didn't drink alcohol, but passing by the bars every day, you could smell cheap beer. The waiters are nothing special. When they heard us speaking Russian, the young ones would just avoid us. The service went to the Germans first, and if we didn't bring our own drinks, they might come to us. The dishes were not cleared during the entire meal. I don't mind not leaving tips; it's just that there was no one to give them to and nothing to give them for. There is no internet in the hotel, none at all. It either freezes or doesn't work at all. Honestly, when we were choosing a hotel, we had a choice - this hotel or Dolphin - the price was roughly the same. Buying a tour for a considerable amount of money (around 28 thousand rubles for two), you want to treat yourself to something delicious on vacation. In this hotel, we got a lot of sun and a magnificent sea for this money. And that's not little. I consider the positive reviews to be all staged or written by people who haven't really stayed in good hotels. I definitely will not recommend this hotel to my friends. I believe that the rating, just like the price for this hotel, is very exaggerated. It is a budget four-star. If you have any questions, I will answer them.

Good day! We bought a tour to the hotel from Pegasus and flew on Turkish Airlines. As always with charters, there were delays with departures. We were delayed for an hour from Vnukovo and six hours from Antalya. The planes were huge and there were no free seats. They served food on the plane and offered a selection of alcohol, but there were no screens with movies for those interested. You cannot check-in for the flight online, so you will only receive your seats at the airport. In Antalya, representatives from Pegasus meet you, but they no longer accompany you to the hotel. We reached the hotel in 2 minutes and there were no traffic jams. We made it in time for breakfast and then immediately received our room. Here's a bit about the staff - we were lucky to be registered by manager Mehmet, who listened to our preferences and provided us with a room on a lower floor, with a balcony, a view of the pool and the sea, and at the end of the corridor. We got exactly what we wanted! I don't know when the hotel was renovated, but everything looked decent. The hotel grounds are not big, but compact enough with lots of greenery and flowers. The hotel's big plus is its pools and an adequate number of sun loungers. There is also plenty of space by the sea for sunbathing, whether under a canopy or in the open sun. However, I was surprised that the hotel doesn't have its own pier on the sea, as some people like diving or consider it a location for sunset photos. The food in the hotel is good, and there is a café on the premises that works excellently for eating or snacking by the pool or by the sea during the day. The only thing I can say is not tasty is the poured ayran. The alcohol is locally produced, and we only tried Tuborg beer and champagne. The main restaurant has a themed dinner every evening, but nothing too fancy. In the evenings, like in all hotels, there is children's entertainment and then activities for adults. A huge advantage of hotels in Lara is the opportunity for walks outside the grounds after sunset. You can go right or left. There are two Migros stores, numerous pharmacies, and of course, many unimaginable things and toys, sweets, suitcases, and bags at sky-high prices! You can, of course, reach the shopping centers in Antalya by bus, but it takes a long time and the buses are always overcrowded, operating on a schedule. You can only pay for the fare with an Antalya Card! We used the hotel taxi service twice, which is not cheap, but it's convenient and comfortable at a time suitable for you. It costs $5 to get to the MarkAntalya shopping center and $45 to get to the Depo shopping center, which includes the return trip, with unlimited time. Shopping in Turkey is expensive now, but if you compare it to prices in Moscow, it's definitely worth buying goods that have disappeared from Russia (we were very pleased with sneakers from the Nike Outlet - new collections and good prices, as well as high-quality Mavi jeans). And of course, we always bring back medications - antiviral, pain relievers, and vitamins from Istanbul or Antalya. In the current reality, planning a trip to the seaside is certainly difficult, as prices are not humane. But if you choose a decent five-star hotel in Lara, I recommend this hotel! From July, the weather will be very hot and prices will become unpredictable, but there is also the velvet season ahead!

We planned a trip to another hotel, but it ended up being unavailable. Then Pegasus offered us a discounted tour to this hotel - that's how we ended up at Fame and didn't regret our choice. The hotel is located just a 2-minute drive from the Lara district airport. Along the hotel strip, there are plenty of shops and an endless bazaar. The prices are astronomical! From the hotel, you can take the 511 bus to Dippo or the 7 bus to Terra City, but you can only pay with an Antalya card (which can be purchased from a vending machine about 5 minutes away from the hotel). The hotel, with its four-star rating, welcomes guests with a cascade of fountain-waterfalls at the entrance. The lobby is spacious, with panoramic elevators where you are greeted with champagne and sweets. As always, there is a bar and shops in the lobby. On the lower ground floor, there is a hammam, sauna, gym, and indoor pool. There are dressing rooms for those with early arrivals or late departures, equipped with showers and lockers with coded locks - very convenient. Check-in and rooms: We arrived at 6 am and immediately received our bracelets and were sent to the restaurant. Later, we were invited to the lobby bar to relax on the sofas. We knew we had to wait until 2 pm, but we decided to approach around 11 am, and we were offered a choice of two rooms. The rooms on each floor alternate between those facing the road with a French balcony and those without. The second room had a view of Dolphin Palace (but there were lots of noisy air conditioners and grills below). So, after 2 days, we approached the reception as promised, and they changed our room for us. The rooms are small, but the furniture is good and not worn out, and the bathroom is spacious. (There is shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, body lotion, sponges, toothbrush sets, a comb, and a shaving set - it seems I didn't forget anything). It's surprising that there is no magnifying mirror in the bathroom. The standard rooms are more spacious and have more wardrobes compared to those in Fame, which have a sofa. The air conditioner works excellently! The mini-bar offers water with and without gas, Fanta, cola, juice, and milk - one of each per person. The territory of the hotel is small but stretched towards the sea. The thoughtfully designed cascading multi-level pools, relaxation areas, and cafes create the illusion of a larger space. There is also a water park with 5 slides, a children's pool under a tent, and a mini club. In winter, there is also a heated outdoor pool. The beach has a wide shoreline. Sun loungers are provided under stationary canopies. If you want to be closer to the sea, they will bring them to you. The beach has sand, and there is a small pebble and seashell area at the entrance to the sea, which transitions into sand after about a meter. The entrance to the sea is a bit steep. The food is available 24/7. Alcoholic drinks are free from 1 pm to 3 pm, but there are also extra drinks that are chargeable. It surprised us that Martini was only available for an additional charge! There is a cafe bar in the lobby (live piano music from 6 pm to 2 am), a grill and drinks bar on the minus 1st floor near the pool (from 12 pm to 4 pm), and coffee shops along the pools in two places - in front of the beach and on the beach itself. The food is very good! There is a 16+ dining hall and a children's dining hall. The only surprising thing was that one day, there was a variety of seafood and dishes. It was impossible to physically try everything. The guest relations officer, Mehr

We have been staying at this hotel since 216, and I must clarify that the hotel keeps getting better and better with each passing year. Especially this year, after the renovation, the hotel has become even more comfortable. Unfortunately, some of the old staff have left, but there are still some familiar faces such as Nedim and Mehmed at the reception, Elif and Mehmriban from Guest Relations. Thanks to them, our vacation was perfect, and all our wishes were fulfilled. The food is delicious, especially the pizza and gözleme prepared outdoors. There are plenty of activities throughout the day, and a nightclub at night. We will definitely come back again in the autumn and highly recommend it to everyone.

We were very pleased with our vacation. We rested in early May. The weather was sunny and gave us a great mood. We were greeted by Nedim and his colleagues with champagne and sweets. Although we arrived early, we got the room almost immediately, for which we thank Mehmeth from the Reception. I also want to note that for any questions you can contact the Guest Relations department, they will tell you, explain and show you everything, just like they did for us. The hotel is incredibly beautiful, clean, and cozy. Additionally, the staff cleaned the room every day and changed the towels. It is very nice that everything is done for the tourists and their comfort. The food is delicious. The staff is polite, friendly, and responsive. We recommend it to everyone, as our family has had a lot of impressions. We will come back to you, we liked everything. Thank you.

Our vacation has come to an end, along with our stay at this wonderful hotel. Before booking the tour, my husband and I reviewed quite a few hotels, but there was always something missing until we finally learned about the Fame Residence Lara. In the end, we bought a tour here and never regretted it. We were immediately impressed by its convenient location near the airport - it took us less than 2 minutes to get to the hotel, and we could watch airplanes taking off and landing from the beach without any noise from the planes. We arrived at the hotel around 9.30 am, where we were immediately given bracelets, offered a welcome drink, and sent to breakfast. At the reception desk, there was a friendly man named Mehmet, who had a ponytail. We showed him the accompanying letter from Tophotels and mentioned that my husband would have a birthday soon, so we asked for a room with a sea view. After breakfast, we strolled around the area, and even though the check-in time was officially 2 pm, we were given a room at 12 pm. Our room was on the very top floor, the 8th floor, with a breathtaking view of the sea, the hotel's territory (including the pools), and the neighboring hotel from the balcony. The room was very comfortable, including the bathroom. The mini-bar and bath amenities were replenished daily, and the towels were changed daily as well. We especially liked the shower cabin, where the water flowed perfectly, and the water pressure and temperature were stable. It didn't have the typical smell of desalinated seawater, which we often encountered in other hotels. The hotel's territory was of medium size, but everything was planned out very well, and it was very pleasant to stay and walk around. There were many pools, including ones with hydro massage, separate children's pools, and water slides. However, this time the pools didn't interest us much because the beach and the sea here were wonderful, and we spent most of our time there. The beach was large with enough sun loungers, and there were always available spots whenever we went. Most of the loungers were under marquees, but those who wanted to sunbathe more moved the loungers closer to the water. The beach itself was very clean and sandy. There was a variety of entertainment during the day and in the evenings. The evening shows started at 9.30 pm, and there was always a different show every day with a children's show before that. During the day, we mainly stayed on the beach and didn't participate in the entertainment. Only once did we participate in the shooting competition with a rifle (hello, and thanks to animator Sergei), it was great fun. I could write a whole poem about the food, considering that we didn't go to à la carte restaurants. It was simply impossible to go hungry in this hotel. In addition to the main restaurant with separate rooms, each with its own design, there were several cafes and bars where you could eat well and fully. There was a wide variety of dishes: chicken, turkey, beef, and even lamb, as well as fish, including red fish. There was a large assortment of appetizers, salads, desserts, and fruits. During our 9-day stay, we couldn't try everything. The waiters served drinks upon request at the tables, and they were quite quick, although of course, you could go to the dining hall yourself and take whatever you wanted. The food was always fresh, and we saw for ourselves that leftover food in the dining area was disposed of. For my husband's birthday, through Guest Relations and a very kind and friendly girl named Mehriban, who also spoke Russian, we reserved a table for dinner in one of the main restaurant's rooms. We were met with a beautifully set and decorated table, prepared drinks, and at the end, the restaurant staff congratulated us and presented a cake. In addition to that, they decorated our room with flowers, which was unexpected and pleasant. We could always turn to Mehriban and the reception staff with any questions or requests, and they would resolve everything immediately. When you go to the hotel, please send them greetings from Nadezhda and Bogdan. There is internet available, and it has a very good signal in the rooms. In the hotel and on the territory, the signal varies depending on the router's location, but we weren't particularly interested in that since we came to relax and swim, not to sit on our phones. However, in any case, there is enough connectivity. I would also like to mention the tour operator Intourist separately. As the receiving side, Intourist was simply wonderful, starting from the airport pick-up and the comfortable medium-sized buses (which is very convenient when you don't have 4-5 people waiting). Special thanks to the hotel guide Ali Sultan - in the individual info meeting the next day, he provided all the necessary information about the hotel and the tour. He didn't push any excursions, only clarified our preferences and oriented us towards the options that interested us. He was always available on WhatsApp and promptly informed us about the pick-up time for excursions from the hotel. When one of the excursions was canceled (due to not enough participants), he immediately notified us, and the money was fully refunded. He is a very polite and respectful guide, and his Russian speaking and writing skills are excellent. As usual, we bought a variety of eastern sweets to take home. We bought them from a shop called "Vkusnyashka," located across the street to the left of the hotel, next to the Grand Park Lara hotel. The shop owner Ali will guide you on what to choose based on your taste and preferences. He also let us try various items and gave us presents from the shelves. We highly recommend stopping by his shop. I could write much more because I truly enjoyed everything this time. It was one of the best vacations of my life. If you have any questions about the hotel, I'm ready to answer.

The hotel is located near the airport and city center. It is easy to reach desired places without any problems. The hotel grounds itself are compact but cozy, and everything is clean. The room is beautiful, especially the bathroom. Cleaning was done every day and towels were changed. There are various snack bars on the outside premises where they cook delicious food, so we never had to go out for lunch. The staff is polite and hospitable. I especially want to mention Nedim for his genuine welcome and Elif, Mehriban from Guest Relations for their support throughout our stay. They didn't hesitate to give attention to every guest and ensured that everyone had the best possible vacation. I recommend it to everyone!

We had a wonderful vacation at Fame Residence Lara Hotel and would like to share our impressions. We stayed in early April and were one of the first guests after the renovation. The rooms pleasantly surprised us because it was our first time staying at this hotel and we had made the reservation based on photos of the old rooms. We were the first guests in our room, which was extremely pleasant. The room was compact but stylishly and tastefully decorated. We especially liked the bathroom, which now has a shower cabin in all rooms, which is also a welcome addition. There was also a small renovation in the outdoor area, such as a snack street and a Waffle stand, which we really enjoyed. There are many pools on the premises: an indoor pool and a large heated outdoor pool. We also liked the slides, which kept our child occupied for most of the time. Throughout the day, there are various activities, similar to other hotels, which is sufficient. The entire staff is friendly and conscientious, and there is no discrimination based on nationality, unlike many other hotels. I would like to particularly highlight Mehriban and Elif from the guest service department, who helped with any issues and questions, making our vacation perfect. I also want to mention Nedim, who welcomed us from transportation and treated us to champagne. We plan to return to this hotel again in the future!

My wife and I try to relax in Turkey, usually in the spring (March-April), escaping from winter and enjoying the blooming spring, and/or in the fall (October-November), extending the summer. It's not a secret that everyone tries to choose a hotel according to their financial possibilities and budget. But there is something that you particularly like about a certain place, when you are drawn there, where you feel comfortable and welcomed. And for us, that place has become the wonderful "Fame Residence Lara & Spa" hotel, a 5-star hotel. This year, we had our third trip to this hotel, where we had a great time (from April 9th to 22nd), and we would like to thank the management and all the hotel staff for their hospitality and creating comfortable conditions for a wonderful vacation - teşekkür ederim. As long as we have the opportunity, we will continue to choose this as our permanent vacation spot in Turkey. Therefore, we would like to share our fresh impressions and some moments of our stay at this hotel in April 223 with you. But before writing this review and giving our evaluation of the "Fame Residence Lara & Spa" hotel, we carefully studied previous reviews from 222-223, which we will not comment on in detail, but I will express my opinion on some of them, and let everyone draw their own conclusions. I want to emphasize that we have also stayed at other five-star hotels in the Lara-Kundu area, so we have something to compare with. However, let's go in order: 1. Reception. The Reception staff has a very responsible job - they greet you, help you with many questions during your stay, and see you off after it ends. Their work immediately creates an impression of the hotel. The work of the Reception managers in this hotel deserves high praise. I would particularly like to mention Mehmet, Nazli, Asli, Medin - professionals in their field, who know how to approach each hotel guest, speak several foreign languages (to the extent required for their duties), including Russian, and always treat your requests with the necessary attention. Their communication with you shows a great respect towards you, a genuine desire to help you and satisfy all your requests and answer all your questions, which sometimes go beyond the hotel's activities. This time we arrived at the hotel in the evening, it took 1 minute to fill out the form, and during that time, the Reception manager was arranging a room for us according to our requests (some of our wishes had already been sent to the hotel in advance by our tour operator). By the number of people going for dinner at the restaurant, it was evident that the hotel had quite a lot of guests. However, the manager needed about 1 more minute to find and provide us with a suitable room, as agreed upon with us. The Reception staff member Burak quickly took our suitcases, then the elevator, and we were already in our room. Burak inspected the room and bathroom with us, answered our questions, wished us a good stay, and we hurried to dinner. Reception staff, please accept our heartfelt thanks for the warm welcome. From the first moment of communication with you, it was clear that our stay here would be of the highest level. Regarding the elevators - there are an adequate number of elevators in the hotel, and we did not notice any delays in their operation or queues for the elevators. 2. Room The hotel underwent a successful renovation (as far as we know, in the offseason of 222-223), which affected not only the living rooms but also the exterior and interior of the building, as well as the hotel grounds. Modern design elements and new equipment have appeared. We were accommodated in a renovated Standard de Luxe room with a double bed on the third floor, with a balcony, overlooking the pools and garden towards the sea, with a side view of the neighboring "Concorde" hotel. There was a small table and two chairs on the balcony, and a clothesline on the wall. Especially in the evening, the balcony offers a beautiful view of the lit-up pools and garden. The room is compact, cozy, decorated stylishly and tastefully; modern furniture fits well into the interior (with an adequate number of drawers), with separate areas for makeup and suitcases. We particularly liked the bathroom with a shower cabin: new modern plumbing with a "tropical shower" system. We did not experience any problems with sound insulation - there was a family with children living in the neighboring room, but we did not hear them, the TVs were set to a certain volume level that could only be decreased, not increased, and with the balcony open in the evening, we could hear quiet music from the discos, which were located far from the hotel building (I want to note that we stayed in April, not during the peak tourist season). Room and bathroom cleaning and towel replacement were done daily. Zuleyha and Gestirnesir, who took care of our room, were always very friendly, polite, and hardworking. We have no complaints, only gratitude for their diligent work. This hotel pays great attention to cleanliness. Now, inside the room, on the wall at the entrance, there are two buttons through which information is transmitted to the display (on the wall in the corridor at the entrance to the room). Thanks to this innovation, you can set (recommend) a convenient time for cleaning the room or request "Do not disturb!" if necessary. There is no longer a need to hang informational signs on the door handle from the outside, which often fell on the floor in the corridor. 3. Dining. Delicious, diverse, and healthy food is one of the main factors that make a hotel attractive. Chef Mustafa and his team successfully manage this task, offering a wide range of delicious dishes with excellent presentation. They always use high-quality and fresh ingredients (vegetables, fruits, salads, etc.). The cleanliness of the restaurant and café areas, as well as the work of the chefs, waiters, bartenders, and other staff, deserves great respect and gratitude. I won't list all the advantages of the hotel's dining options, but I will highlight specific aspects that I find important and interesting. Breakfast - a buffet: officially served mainly in the main restaurant until 11 am (usually in other Turkish hotels it goes until 1 pm) - very convenient for those who like to sleep in, for young people, and for tired guests who arrived late at night. There is a wide variety of yogurts, unusual preserves, Turkish sweets and desserts, cheeses and sausages, and natural honeycomb for honey lovers, as well as fruits, etc. Lunch: we did not have lunch in the main restaurant, as it started one and a half hours after breakfast ended, which was too long for us. However, we used the services of various cafes and bars on the hotel grounds for a snack before dinner. Gozleme is a great option for a snack, which is one of the oldest and most delicious dishes in Turkish cuisine - a flatbread with various fillings. Ayran, a refreshing fermented milk drink with a history of more than 15 centuries, is also a great choice. This hotel bakes the best gozleme we have ever had in Turkey, and it is very popular among guests, so sometimes you have to wait for it to be prepared specifically for you. However, this time is well-spent as it is interesting to watch how this dish is prepared, thus getting acquainted with Turkish traditions. Coffee and tea: we really liked Turkish coffee with a little sugar and Turkish-style black tea. They prepare them especially well in the "Coffee House" (turn left before reaching the beach). Dinner in the main restaurant - a buffet: the selection is huge. When going to dinner, you are often greeted with pleasant surprises: drinks, original "compliments," or you may find out that today is "Turkish Night," "Italian Night," or some other holiday celebration with new original dishes and appetizers. The chefs and waiters dress up according to the holiday theme, and the tables are decorated with bright tablecloths. It is a bright, fun, and enjoyable experience. Turkish national holidays are celebrated in a festive and grand manner, and hotel guests are always encouraged to participate. Special thanks to the waiters and bartenders for their work. We did not feel any biased attitude towards guests based on their nationality or whether they gave tips or not. Everyone treated us with respect and worked quickly and humorously, creating a friendly atmosphere while interacting with customers. Many of them can speak Russian. However, hotel guests should also understand that they (waiters, bartenders, and other hotel staff) are not servants but service providers. Therefore, a smile and kind words towards them are significant additions to our respectful attitude towards them. And, of course, the main person responsible for the organization of the entire hotel's dining system is Chef Mustafa - a professional in his field, a hard worker, and open to communication with guests. He is always on the move, overseeing the work of his subordinates, talking to guests, and listening to their opinions about the taste and quality of the food. He can also make jokes, smile, and calm a crying child. Mustafa, please accept our sincere gratitude. 4. Hotel grounds The hotel grounds are average in size (compared to other hotels in the area), compact, and well-planned. It has everything needed for a vacation: a large number of pools with transparent water and different depths, water slides for all ages, cozy rest areas surrounded by greenery, trees, and flowers. There are no problems with the availability of sun loungers (all new, with mattresses) and outdoor sunshades. There are sports fields (football, basketball, tennis court, beach volleyball), table tennis, playgrounds for children, a "green" theater, places for discos, and, of course, a large number of various cafes and bars. An indisputable advantage of this hotel is the presence of two heated pools: one (large) is located outdoors, while the other (smaller) is indoors, next to the main hotel building (sauna, Turkish bath, gym, and spa center). During the renovation period, landscaping work was carried out, during which landscape designers and gardeners worked hard. We sincerely thank them for their efforts. The cleanliness is ideal, constantly monitored by managers who walk around the hotel grounds. It is even difficult to find fallen leaves on perfectly trimmed lawns, and everything smells fresh and blooming. 5. Beach - awarded the Blue Flag. The beach area is wide and sandy-pebbled (very fine pebbles). It is clean and has a gently sloping entry into the sea. Along the entire length of the beach, there are three rows of canopies under which sun loungers (all new, with mattresses), small plastic tables, and trash bins are placed at a sufficient distance from each other. The beach is constantly cleaned, so there were no problems with flies or other 7. Hotel Status Can the hotel be considered "family-friendly"? Perhaps it can, as the hotel provides all the necessary conditions for family vacations with children and for older couples. But it is also interesting and comfortable for young people to stay here. Some reviews suggest considering this hotel "German", motivated by the fact that Germans have priority in service. We did not notice any privileges for Germans. The hotel staff treated all guests respectfully and friendly regardless of nationality. In addition, all signs, instructions, and rules for guests, names of dishes in restaurants and cafes were duplicated in Russian, even in the menu of the main restaurant there were Russian cuisine dishes. The music programs of the discos were in many languages, including Russian, and in the lobby bar, the pianist often played pieces by Russian composers. There are no difficulties in communicating with the staff in Russian - you will always be understood or assisted by Russian-speaking employees. Of course, knowledge of foreign languages has never been a hindrance to anyone. We noticed that foreigners are very interested in Russia and want to know more about our country. We managed to communicate in English with some of them. But we had certain problems communicating with Germans - they did not know Russian (and we - German) and had difficulties with English. 8. Convenient location of the hotel The hotel is located almost in the center of the Lara-Kundu resort area, near the airport (about 2 minutes by bus) and Antalya. Nearby, there are numerous shops, cafes, pharmacies, exchange offices, travel agencies, and other establishments. There are no problems with the Russian language. Two "Migros" stores, where we always buy coffee, tea, Turkish sweets, and wine for our home, are located nearby. In most pharmacies, assistants and pharmacists also speak Russian, and the prices in pharmacies are almost the same. To independently and economically move to other areas, you can use the city bus. To do this, buy a plastic transport card "antalyakart" (they will tell you where it is in the Reception), load it with money in Turkish Lira at the Terminal for topping up transport cards (any seller on the street will tell you where and how). This card can be used for several years. To pay for the trip, touch the card to the validator next to the bus driver. The cost of the trip with the card in April was 9.6 Turkish Lira one way (regardless of the distance) per person. Bus stops are located near the hotel. It should be noted that bus trips may not always be comfortable - everything depends on the number of passengers on the bus and the traffic. Main routes: No. 511 - "eepo" Shopping Center, "Mall of Antalya", "Agora", "IKEA" (travel time 3-35 minutes), the final stop - the Central Bus Station "Antalya Otogar" (about 1 hour), from which you can reach other cities in Turkey; No. 7 - "TerraCity" Shopping Center (about 3 minutes), "MarkAntalya" (35-4 minutes), Old Town, harbor, Hadrian's Arch, and other historical sites. Find time and visit the Old Town with its mosques and minarets, narrow streets, cozy cafes and small restaurants, shady parks, magnificent views of the harbor, and you will experience the amazing atmosphere of this city that will stay in your memory. All the necessary information for this trip can be found on the Internet. Conclusion: In its category of 5-star hotels, this is an excellent hotel and is in line with this category. I would like to repeat a phrase from a review by one of the guests, which accurately reflects our impressions: "When it comes to the hotel, it is like an open, kind, cheerful, and warm-hearted person who it is very pleasant to get to know...". Perhaps it is better not to describe the "Fame Residence Lara & Spa" Hotel. I would rate the hotel as a "5+" category. Plus, I would add praise to all the hotel staff for their friendly reception, hospitality, conscientiousness in work, and their desire to do their best. Many of our friends and acquaintances are already staying at this hotel based on our advice and recommendations, and we wish you the same. And one more thing... After finishing your stay at the hotel, do not forget to say goodbye to Osman (the young man who provides/changes towels at the reception near the beach), and he will give you his charming smile, which will warm your soul, and wish you a safe journey. After that, you will have no choice but to return to "Fame Residence Lara & Spa".

Had a great vacation. Thank you very much.

Burak helped us a lot, thank you very much!

The hotel is luxurious! If not the best in its category, then definitely one of the best in Turkey! I have been on vacation in this country multiple times, so I know what I'm talking about. The buildings, the grounds, and most importantly, the attention and attentiveness of the staff are above praise! We wanted to particularly mention Mehriban, the girl at the reception. She is very friendly (like all the hotel staff), pleasant, and fulfills all requests related not only to our stay at the hotel but also to our vacation as a whole. Additionally, we would like to acknowledge all the chefs, including the head chef. He personally approached us every day during breakfast, lunch, and dinner to wish us a good appetite and inquire about the quality of the food. The room service, restaurants, and entertainment are all excellent! The bartenders are handsome, and they are all polite, respectful, and humorous. The food is outstanding, with a solid 5 rating. They always serve delicious meals throughout the day, with a huge variety and truly high-quality offerings. We didn't encounter any household problems, including the abundance of sun loungers. The positive atmosphere surrounding us and the top-notch service made our vacation unforgettable! We will definitely return to this hotel and recommend it to our friends. Room 3236.

We were vacationing together. The hotel has only proven itself from the positive side. Special thanks to Mehribat for her attentive attitude towards the guests. She provided detailed answers to all our questions, and we also used her map for bus calculations absolutely free of charge. We would also like to note the excellent and varied food in the restaurants and bars. Based on all of the above, we bought another tour to this hotel. Now we will come in October, already as a family of three with our son. We hope for a worthy vacation and the same attentive attitude as in 2022. We definitely recommend the hotel for accommodation.

We had a family vacation in August of 222. The hotel was not up to par, it can't be rated as a five-star establishment. We have always stayed at hotels of a higher level before. But the main thing is not to focus on the shortcomings. The excellent sea makes up for all the flaws. I made a collection of the most appetizing food photos. We definitely wouldn't go to this hotel again. Wishing everyone a great vacation!

The hotel is located near the airport and city center. It is easy to reach desired places without any problems. The hotel's territory itself is compact, but cozy and everything is clean. The room is beautiful, especially the bathroom. Housekeeping was done every day and towels were changed. There are different snack bars on the premises, where the food is delicious, so we never had to go out for lunch. The staff is polite and welcoming. I especially want to highlight Nadeem for his sincere welcome, and Elif and Mehriban from Guest Relations for their support throughout our stay. They paid attention to every guest and made sure everyone had the best vacation possible. I recommend it to everyone!

We were on a family vacation in early October. We stayed in a family room and were able to check in early at 12. The room was spacious, comfortable, and cleaned excellently. 1. The hotel's location and facilities were good, with a solid 5 rating. It was comfortable in a European way, without any "wow" feelings, but still good. 2. The restaurants and bars had plenty of food and everything was delicious. I can recommend the Gezleme bar on the beach, and the Italian à la carte restaurant. The overall atmosphere was very cozy. 3. The beach was excellent, with a comfortable entry and a clean beach. There were plenty of sunbeds. We didn't use the pools much, but they were beautifully done. The water slides were great. 4. The entertainment was a bit boring because it was the end of the season. However, the evening events and shows were decent and kept us entertained. Volleyball and boules on the beach depended more on the guests. We managed to gather a group for both activities. 5. The staff's quest relay work was impressive. They were attentive to the guests and tried to maintain the hotel's reputation. They took good care of the tourists. Overall, the hotel seemed to be mainly filled with elderly Europeans, which influenced the overall atmosphere. Maybe we just happened to come at that time, but the experience was mixed. Despite the full range of services, it lacked soul. However, it is suitable for a quiet and peaceful vacation, as well as a base for trips to Antalya.

Good day everyone! I stayed at the hotel from October 7th to 19th. I chose this hotel based on a travel agent's recommendation. During the booking process, I requested a room with a sea view in a quiet location. I must admit that the hotel did not pay attention to the guests' requests! The room provided had a view of the road, where there was no silence at any time of the day. The next day, for an additional fee, I was able to change my room. The balcony had a sea view, but it was still noisy! If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place for you, as the hotel is situated between the "Condor" hotel and the "Dolphin Imperial" hotel. There are entertainment events happening from all sides, which smoothly transition into the night (usually until 2 am). Now, regarding the food: the menu offers enough dishes, but it lacks variety. However, you won't go hungry! There are many cafes along the coast where you can grab a snack. The cleanliness in the rooms leaves much to be desired. Thankfully, they changed the towels daily! The beach is approximately 2 meters away from the residential building. The shoreline is narrow, but the access to the sea is decent. There are no individual sunbeds with umbrellas, they are all placed under canopies. Since I enjoy solitude, I tried to sunbathe by the pools. I believe this hotel is suitable for undemanding tourists, as it definitely does not live up to its 5-star rating! One positive thing was the hotel's taxi service (costing 15 euros per car to the airport, not per person!). At the hotel, you can wrap your luggage with plastic film for 1 euro. Now, regarding the hotel guide (Vladislav). At first, she made a pleasant impression: she seemed knowledgeable and passionate about her job! However, after purchasing the tour excursions, for which she receives a commission, she lost interest in the tourists. I also want to inform anyone interested in buying tours from the guide that you won't receive accurate information about the upcoming tour. I took a 2-day excursion to Lebanon, paying around 5 dollars. The promised excursion program to Wat Zap was not conducted, and it was not mentioned that dinner was not included. There was no mention of the 1-hour delay of the flight to Beirut. Upon arrival in Beirut, we were accommodated in a decent hotel. But surprises started the next day! We were provided with a falling-apart bus with dirty seats and air conditioners that had not been cleaned since they were installed! The microphone used by the guide was in terrible condition; the last 3-4 rows of tourists could not hear the guide's explanations, although Olga, the guide, tried her best to convey all the interesting information about the country. She was a very knowledgeable and interesting person! That was the only positive aspect of this excursion. I also took an excursion to Myra, Demre, and Kekova. Here, tourists were seriously deceived! I booked a tour for a small group (no more than 12 people). In the end, the small group was only in the minibus. Due to bad weather, we were accommodated on a large yacht, where tourists from the big bus were also placed! I am writing this to prevent others from making similar mistakes, as the price difference was only about 5 dollars! Additionally, most people chose this tour to visit the sarcophagus, which was closed for restoration! The hotel guides do not inform you about this! If the guides were decent and not obsessed with money, they would warn people about unforeseen circumstances, allowing them to decide whether or not to take the excursion and request a refund. Back to the hotel. Overall, it is possible to have a good vacation there! It is not the worst place to stay. If you are not fixated on silence, you can go there peacefully!

We stayed at a hotel with my husband from January 13th to January 2nd. We arrived early in the morning, so we had to wait until 1 PM for our room, but they immediately gave us bracelets so that we could have something to eat. Thank you for that. We were assigned room 3257, I think, on the third floor with a city view. Overall, it was not bad; the room was clean. The food, mainly in the main restaurant, turned out to be worse than in the cafes along the way to the sea. It seemed like there was a lot of it, but it didn't look appetizing. Many of the dishes were boiled or steamed (apparently aimed at elderly Germans). They were often underseasoned, and we missed spices and Turkish cuisine. Overall, we didn't like the food, so we often ate pizza and french fries at the bar. The service mainly prioritizes Germans, which can be felt in the cafes and bars. In the main restaurant, the staff couldn't keep up with clearing the tables because they were busy serving Germans (waiting on them, bringing them food, etc.). There were good waiters who didn't differentiate people based on their nationality, but there were only a few of them. Some waiters couldn't even bring a fork; we had to approach and ask for cutlery or to clear the table. The room cleaning was fine, no complaints. They cleaned it every day, changed the towels, and even put flowers and towel animals on the bed. Entertainment is present, but it's almost like it's not there. The daytime animation is so unobtrusive that you might not even realize that there's a volleyball game or rifle shooting happening somewhere. We didn't see any animators for the first four days, but as soon as I complained, they started showing up and trying to attract people. The evening program, again, caters to Germans. Apparently, they are not picky because tricks for children and dancing schoolgirls (part of the show) are enough to impress them. We didn't like it at all; it was very mediocre and forgettable. There was also a bingo game for the elderly. I won't even mention the disco club; if you don't know where it is, you won't find it. And even if you do, you'll be dancing to German music with Germans showing inappropriate gestures. Honestly, we were shocked by it. The sea and the beach were nice. The beach area was wide, the sea was clean, and there was a beautiful view of the mountains. The pool was also nice. It was large, and you could find a quiet area or stay where the music played. There was also a heated pool next to a free sauna. The city - you can go outside the hotel to the tourist town. There are many shops and cafes where you can take a walk. The Wi-Fi was constantly disconnecting and didn't work well. Sometimes it would be gone for half the evening. There were many cats, which was nice; they were the only ones that made us smile. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Unfortunately, it is not worth the money spent, and I don't want to feel like an unwelcome guest there again. If you are not German, choose another hotel!

We stayed as a group of four from August 17th to 24th. Our room, elu Family, was on the second floor with a side view of the sea and the Dolphin hotel. The hotel operates on an All-Inclusive basis, which is why there are paid à la carte restaurants. Orange juice costs 2 euros and the only alcohol available is the local one, which is not enjoyable. Overall, the hotel is alright, but the food could be better. It mostly consisted of chicken, with very modest lunches. There were more options to choose from for dinner, but we missed lamb and beef. Lamb was only served once, and there were no seafood options available. There is plenty of food available outside from 12pm to 5pm, including fries, pizza, chicken, gözleme, fruits, ice cream, and waffles. The figs were especially delicious and sweet. The shaded sun loungers on the beach were almost always occupied. However, they are quite far from the sea and it would be nice to have more shaded areas. There is no pier, but there is a water trampoline. The Wi-Fi is available throughout the whole property, including the beach, but the signal can be weak at times. The water slides are great and the pool is Olympic-sized. The entertainment team organizes activities such as darts, shooting, volleyball, and pool games during the day. In the evenings, there are different shows. Overall, the hotel is decent and tries its best, but falls short of a full five-star rating. The sea is fantastic!

Short: we had a good rest thanks to the excellent weather and warm sea from October 4th to 16th), but we won't return to this hotel and I won't penny-pinch on economical options anymore ;) It's not for picky eaters or for people who prioritize food, and those accustomed to at least ~ IC Hotels level. If your expectations are not high and proximity to Antalya is a priority - it's okay. Now, a detailed review: CONS Terrible WI-FI. There is no good internet even for money, so it's better to get a local SIM card right away, even if you don't need the internet for work. The entire Food & Beverage of the hotel is a disaster, including the service. They don't have time to clear plates, refresh the table setting, and it's not efficient to rely on them for drinks (it's better to get them yourself). To be fair, the hotel is full, and at the end of the season, the staff is tired. It's understandable, but we still wanted a good vacation. You won't find anything delicious on the buffet. As a result, according to the genre, there are small portions on the plates, as only a quarter of it is edible. No seafood. There is fish, but it's dry and tasteless. Even in the salad called "crab," the crab sticks are dry, despite floating in sauce. Even simple dishes like gözleme take forever. Just like at any show-cooking station for spaghetti or pancakes in the morning: one person for the whole casino. They start moving horrendously dirty carts around the dining hall to collect dishes from the buffet thirty minutes before dinner ends. There is no bar with beautiful cocktails. No good coffee. The juices are concentrates and horrible mixtures. They turn off the air conditioning at night, if it's not possible to leave the balcony open: it's stuffy and cold in the mornings. They blame the weather - supposedly it's allowed at the beginning of October. But there are suspicions that the situation is not much different in the summer. Terrible pillows with crumpled synthetic padding. Two weeks of mini disco for 2 minutes with the same songs. No other entertainment for children was noticed. A few days before our arrival, a little girl fell from the stage, ended up in the hospital, and the animators didn't take care of her. PROS The reception is friendly and responsible. They found us a room with a sea view for an additional 15 euros per night, even though they initially said "impossible, the hotel is fully booked." We asked for a step stool for the bathroom, there were no specialized platforms, but they brought a sturdy heavy stool. They allowed us to have a free Late Check Out (until 15:3 for us, and in front of me they allowed two girls to stay in the room until 17-18 o'clock for free). Despite all the shortcomings in food organization, there is plenty of food until the end of the service hours, and the dishes are replenished. One waitress and one bartender are excellent professionals, beyond praise. Often (not always) good grilled food. Delicious pizza in the Italian restaurant. And most importantly, not a single hint of stomach upset. We were lucky with the housekeeper. She was a very good worker, she tried her best, with some mistakes, of course, but the cleaning was above average. Clean bathroom without mold, fairly fresh tiles (but very slippery floor with glossy tiles, the same as on the walls). Good and sturdy baby cots. We didn't notice any discrimination towards Russians, tips, smiles, and a few words in Turkish go a long way. A super pleasant surprise: one of the open pools (the top rectangular semi-Olympic pool) is WARM, while the others are icy. We conclude that it has heating, although it's not advertised!

We rested from October 14th to 24th. We flew together with a 7-year-old child on Aeroflot, a regular flight, and the flight lasted exactly 5 hours. There were screens with a good selection of movies, the hot meals were quite tolerable, and you could have as many drinks as you wanted. The children were given gifts. We arrived in Turkey in the evening at 7 o'clock, and there was no one at the passport control, we were second in line and received our luggage. We had booked a taxi and did not use the transfer, so we arrived at the hotel at 2:3. They immediately told us to go for dinner and said they would deal with the rest later. At the reception, I indicated that I would like a room with a balcony and a bathtub. I thanked them, and they immediately gave us the key and we went to unpack. Our room was 614 on the 6th floor. In previous reviews, it was mentioned that the rooms were small, but we had a fairly large room with a big bathroom. The balcony and bathtub were exactly as we had requested. The room was clean, the carpet was clean, and the glass surfaces were polished. There was a TV with 3 Russian channels. There were many drawers and bedside tables, and I asked for additional hangers (they brought them the next day). The minibar had 3 sodas, 1 juice, 1 milk, a large bottle of water, and a large bottle of sparkling mineral water. I left a dollar as a tip, and I was satisfied with the cleanliness, they changed the beddings 5 times in 11 days, and the towels were changed daily. The hotel provided body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap, shower caps, cotton swabs and cotton pads, and liquid soap in a dispenser. The room had a kettle, cups, sugar, coffee, and tea. Our balcony was quite spacious and had a clothesline on the wall. The central air conditioning, in the form of a thermostat, worked well for both heating and cooling. There was a standard safe in the wardrobe. Food. I can write about it endlessly... The breakfast was standard, with the exception of the availability of chocolate milk where the cereals were, I had never seen that before. My daughter drank it without cereal. Freshly squeezed juice cost 2 euros. The breakfast was average. Lunch. During the 11 days, we never went to the restaurant for lunch because there was a wide variety of food outside. Starting from the beach: - Snack on the beach (fruits, vegetables, 2 types of meat, 2 types of side dishes, soup, sometimes doner kebab) - They also made gezmeli (the most delicious gezmeli I have ever tried, and we have stayed in many hotels) - There was a station with Viennese waffles and a type of our hash browns - A large snack by the pool (grilled fish, baked vegetables, chicken/turkey, soup, pasta, hamburger, french fries, rice/bulgur, stewed vegetables, stewed meat, pide, fruits, vegetables) - Pizza by order at Strada - Ice cream from 2 to 4 pm (no individual packaging for dondurma) - Near the bar, where Fame cafe is, there was a patisserie (pastries, sandwiches, confectionery) We also saw that gezmeli was prepared nearby, where they distribute ice cream. And all of this is only outside. There is also a snack on the -1 floor (we did not go there), and there is lunch in the main restaurant (we never made it). Dinners... I want to emphasize again that I have something to compare with, I have stayed in Lara and Belek before, both hotels received excellent reviews. The food here is at a decent level. Each dinner had 2 or more types of fish, 2 or more types of turkey, 2 or more types of beef, and also chicken, lamb, there were baked, grilled, and stewed dishes. There were plenty of vegetables and side dishes. There was always potatoes, pasta, and grains. The kids' table had 6 dishes. There was also a couple's diet table. The fruits we had were red and yellow apples, red and green grapes, red and white pomegranates, plums, pears, tangerines, oranges, and melons. Pasta was prepared outside, and there were 2-3 stations with a constant flow of people (I didn't try it, I was alone with my 7-year-old daughter, waiting for a dish for 15-20 minutes was a luxury for me). Shawarma. The dessert table was disappointing. I mean, there was a variety of desserts, but I didn't really like most of them. In my opinion. With such a variety of well-prepared food, the dessert table lacked in quality. But we were not particularly into desserts, so it didn't matter much to me. The drinks were served by waiters who were not always in a hurry to serve. They would only rush when you had finished eating. Then they would help you find a table and make your plates disappear like magic. We would arrive at the beginning of the dinner, and we always sat at the same table. Seafood was served twice, on the "seafood day": there were crabs and salads with mussels, octopus, shrimp, and calamari, as well as tuna. On the beach, they would distribute fruit salad or sesame bagels once or twice a day. Towels. The towel hut was open from 8 am to 6 pm, right next to the beach. Sometimes, if we wanted dry towels, we would exchange them during the day because we would pass by anyway. In the evening, we would return the towels, they would give us cards, so there was no hassle of carrying the towels to the room. Beach. Three rows of canopies, which is approximately 1/4 of the entire beach. Further down, just lounge chairs, many of them, with comfortable mattresses. Few tables and even fewer trash bins. We were there in October, the sun wasn't scorching, so I dragged my lounge chair as close to the water as possible to keep an eye on my child. It might become a problem in the summer when it's over 30 degrees in the shade and there are no canopies. In the morning, it was occasionally cool, so there were available sunbeds at 1 pm. However, we are early birds, already on the beach at 8-8:30 am. The beach is relatively clean. The sea has a fantastic gradual entrance, then it gets deeper. It's interesting that there is a sandbar approximately 1.5 meters below the surface between the shore and the buoys. During low tide, a tall man could walk straight to the buoys. Sea. There were strong waves only once in the 11 days, the rest of the time it was calm. There were a couple of days with complete calmness, where the bottom was visible even near the buoys. The water temperature was initially 27 degrees and by the end of the vacation, it was 25 degrees. Weather. We experienced 3 rainy days (light rain that starts and stops quickly), and one night with heavy rain. It was cool in the morning, around 18-20 degrees, hot during the day, reaching up to 34 degrees, and different in the evenings. After October 2nd, it started to get cool in the evenings, but we didn't need jackets. I brought a cardigan and jeans for my daughter, but we didn't use them. However, we usually go back to our room early, around 9:30-10 pm. People in reviews mentioned that they wore lightweight jackets. Well, it wasn't necessary for us. Overall, I can say that the weather didn't bother us during our vacation or swimming in the sea, but it could have been a bit warmer. The locals say that the weather in October was unusually cool. Entertainment. We didn't participate in the animation program even once, so there is nothing to tell. There are activities during the day. For children. There is a kids' club (we didn't go), a playground on the beach (not outstanding but decent for a change of activities), and a kids' disco in the evening for 15-20 minutes. Ice cream is available twice a day, from 2 to 4 pm and during dinner. This leads us to the next point. Crowd. Germans make up 7%, mostly in the 50+ age group, sometimes families. Russians make up 2%, also mainly older people. There are very few children, and there are areas without children. It's definitely not a hotel for young people or partygoers. There are very few Kazakhs, a few Italians, Dutch, and French guests. The hotel provides many facilities for people with disabilities and is always ready to help with a stroller (although we didn't need it, I saw it multiple times). There is a cinema with screenings at 9:30 pm. Pools. There are many pools, one of them is heated, and the water is pleasantly warm. We went once. Staff. I can't say for sure. All the staff at the reception and bars were great. Waiters were 5/5. In the bar, Fame Cafe, there is a bartender named Can. He makes delicious cocktails and always offers snacks (nuts, chips, straws). We gave him $1-2, and he even served us without waiting if he was working on the floor (there are two bartenders, one at the main bar and the other serving the floor). Everyone is polite, some are just a bit lazy. Bars. I'm not a connoisseur, but in the evenings, I had 2-3 sweet cocktails. There is a decent selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, and they try to please the children as well. Packaged juices are only tomato juice, all the others are from a dispenser. Ayran is served in pitchers, not individual packages. Soft drinks are served in bottles. Location. It's a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport. The transfer is also quick, depending on whether they are dropping off/picking up people along the way. There is a pharmacy right across the street, many shops, and a Migros supermarket to the right, 5 minutes away, and a larger one to the left, 15 minutes away. There is only one main street, so it's easy to navigate. They provide free transportation to Antalya for shopping. We didn't go on any excursions. Internet. Here comes the surprise! Sending messages through social media, WhatsApp, and Telegram is no problem. Search engines, maps, and YouTube all work. Making phone calls is impossible. Only in the lobby in the morning, from 7-8 am, and until 1 pm on the beach. Sometimes in the evening at the bar. Basically, where there are no people. It doesn't work at all in the restaurant in the evening. Well, guys, it's the 21st century, the age of technology, it's embarrassing to have such poor Wi-Fi with such resources. I would definitely improve that. Wildlife. Insects! They are everywhere. Flies and bees outside, spiders (kind of flying ants) on the beach. Disgusting. At the beginning of the vacation, we were bitten by either mosquitoes or gnats. You can't keep the balcony open in the room, they will fly in. There are many cats on the premises. A lot. I'm not a fan, especially when they wander inside. There are also big dogs on the beach, friendly and calm, but sometimes they were a bit intimidating. According to the criteria that are important to me, I would give the hotel a 9 out of 10. I am very picky, but I was satisfied. I definitely recommend visiting. I'm sure we will come back here many times. I also wanted to add that they extended our room until 2 pm on the day of departure without any charge.

My husband and I flew from Moscow for 23k for 1 day. I understood that the prices set by the Turks were inflated, but the fact that the quality had dropped significantly was evident. However, it turned out that not everywhere... In the neighboring hotels, which were cheaper and even on the second line, it was better, so it must be the fault of the owner of this particular hotel. The hotel itself is clean and they try to take care of what they have, but it is definitely outdated. For us, the most important things were not the wallpapers and chandeliers, but the food, atmosphere, cleanliness, and just making sure everything works properly. We arrived at 9 and were checked in at 11. The room was nice, with everything we needed and everything worked. The cleaning service came every day, towels were replaced, and the bedding was changed a couple of times. The staff was polite. The main disappointment was that there was NO PIER (I missed that when booking). The beach was not long, but wide. They simply release a tablet into the water to keep it clean. There were very few sunbeds under shade tents... the rest of the sunbeds were under the scorching sun... You could carry them closer to the sea... The hotel grounds itself are very compact. The second disappointment was the food! You won't go hungry if you only eat fast food! There is a café-bar by the beach. Every day it's the same! Shaurma-style food, vegetables, rice, flatbread... and that's it! And yes, there is a sign saying "We will cook royal shrimp for 8 euros" - sounds like a mockery! Further along the path, there is another dining area where you can assemble your own waffles and french fries. Near the pools, you can assemble your own burger, grilled chicken, and mackerel, fries... They also make something similar to pizza, and flatbreads again... I had hope for the main restaurant, but alas... Every day it was chicken with chicken in a chicken sauce ((( For the first time, I didn't see lamb, beef, or seafood at all! If I closed my eyes and walked through the restaurants with my eyes closed, I could tell you where everything was each day, because nothing changed! Grilled wings, legs (undercooked, with blood), minced dishes, beef, turkey, but still offal... No shrimp, no crabs, no decent fish (only mackerel), no lamb... The third shock - NO Turkish coffee in Turkey's hotel!!! Only one instant coffee! The fruits were standard, watermelons for lunch, and cherries only in the evening))) In the morning, there were standard cheeses (no cottage cheese), chicken ham, eggs, pancakes, and terrible coffee. Sweets and cakes were only available in the evening...(I didn't mind that) In short, yes, you won't go hungry if you can eat fast food every day or say hello to ulcer! We have been to numerous Kunda hotels, but this is the first time we encountered such trash. The fish was rotting from the head ((( As for the sunbeds, there were many of them, but very little space. People would occupy spots from 6 am, and the sunbeds were tightly arranged in several rows. There may seem to be a lot of pools, but they are small... There is not enough space for everyone. The next huge downside is the elevators! There are only 2 at the reception! There are 2 more in the wings, but only 1 is working! People were complaining, with a wait time of 5-10 minutes! The majority of the guests are Germans, including Russian speakers. There are also Kazakhs and Turks, but very few Russians. The entertainment is not geared towards Russian speakers at all, there isn't even any translation. It's the standard basic entertainment at the pool and on the beach. The next disappointment is the evening shows... I have never seen such cheap, dull, and uninteresting shows before! Usually, everyone watches with pleasure, excitement, and applauds standing up... Here, everyone left halfway through)))) The hotel is very boring, it's more fun outside. The entertainment at the neighboring hotels goes on almost around the clock, and they even have shows in Russian! The staff and entertainers are focused on German, not Russian... There is no international feel, as it should be. There is no main host, no hotel atmosphere, everyone is on their own... If you need Wi-Fi, go to the reception area where there are 2 chairs and an antenna) that's where you'll get a signal! There is no connection by the elevators... nor in the restaurant or around it. In the room, by the pool, and on the beach, the connection is patchy. The gastronomy... only in German! Even not in English! In short, the staff is a disaster... Many times we have encountered staff and entertainers who speak several languages, at least the basics... In conclusion, I would say it's better to choose another hotel! The only positives are the good slides, the sea, and the sun!

Good time of day to everyone!!! Let me start with our flight. We flew with the tour operator Intourist, with the airline "Turkish Airlines" (more specifically, AnadoluJet, a low-cost carrier). They served us a lunch box on the plane, which included juice, a bun or sandwich, a cake, and water. Everything was on schedule, without delays. We had good flights and arrived in Antalya at 7 o'clock in the morning. On our way back, we were picked up from the hotel at 4 o'clock. The transfer was of a representative class and only for us, which was very pleasing. We arrived at the hotel early in the morning, had breakfast, and were given a key card to our room. When we booked the tour, we had reserved a small room without a balcony, but for a small additional fee, they provided us with a nice room with a sea view and a huge balcony (room 124). We paid with a MIR card, and the exchange rate was very favorable. Let me digress a bit, maybe it will be useful to someone too... At the reception, there was a pleasant man named Mahmud (I hope I spelled the name correctly, his hair was tied in a ponytail at the back). Upon request, he checked us in immediately and allowed us to stay in the room until 2 o'clock. This means a lot to us, and I hope this information will be useful to you too. We are incredibly grateful to him on behalf of our family! The hotel was crowded, but despite that, the hotel staff tries their best and makes every effort to make you feel comfortable. The tables are prepared quickly so that you don't have to wait, and they come over right away and ask about drinks. As for the food, there are no questions at all; everyone will find something delicious for themselves. If there is a line, it moves quickly. The hotel grounds are nice, with many pools, and the beach is beautiful. You can take a lounge chair to the sea. Since there are many people in the hotel, the problem was with the loungers. No, don't get me wrong, you can always find a sunbed, but the good spots are always taken. When we were there, we didn't hear any Ukrainians, and there were very few Russians. You have to go to the pool at 6-7 o'clock in the morning if you want to secure a sunbed, as for the beach, I can't say because we didn't occupy or lie on them, we just swam. I can only say a huge human thank you to Turkey, to the Fame hotel for this warmth (+36), for the sun, for the sea, for all the natural beauty, for a vacation without doing laundry, ironing, cooking, and cleaning. We thank you for everything and we hope to come back again!!!

Turkey has always been considered for travel, but in the "later age" it was left for later, as: 1. it was not considered exotic, 2. it is very accessible in terms of distance and cost, 3. it is a very family-friendly resort destination with a large number of children, 4. it is a popular tourist destination with almost no language barrier. However, the current situation resulted in canceled trips planned for March or October 2022, and the choice stood between the Black Sea coast of Russia and Turkey (thanks to the latter for sending their own planes for tourists))). A four-star hotel in Gelendzhik for just one night with breakfast turned out to be TWICE as expensive as a five-star hotel in Turkey for 14 days, all-inclusive. The criteria for choosing this hotel were as follows: relatively small size (around 45 rooms, while there are massive hotels with 1,500+ rooms nearby), located on the first line with a sandy beach (Lara), in close proximity to the city and the airport, and with a large number of pools and a water park. The flight from Moscow went well, Turkish Airlines even served wine in economy class. We arrived at the hotel late in the evening. We booked a Standard room, which initially comes with a French balcony. However, we requested a room with a normal balcony as we needed a place for smoking, and they accommodated our request without any additional charge. The room had a view of the city from the 7th floor, which turned out to be a plus as it was not under the scorching sun like the rooms facing the other side (facing the pools). The evening view was stunning, with music playing and beautiful sunsets. The resort area is compact, not too big and not too small, everything is conveniently located within walking distance (bars, food courts, restrooms, pools, beach). We went to the sea either in the morning (more beautiful and completely calm, great) or after 4 p.m. (more waves, but plenty of free space). During the day, it is possible to find a place by the pools or at the beach, but it can be quite challenging, and your neighbors will be very close by. We rented an individual gazebo by the pool twice for 6 euros, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. It was fenced off from other holidaymakers with steel railings and had its own service staff (who brought drinks from the bar, fruits, snacks, etc.), two lounge chairs, a table, and two chairs (lunch was served there). The gazebo was fully covered with fabric, inside there were soft mattresses with sheets, pillows, a refrigerator with drinks, and power outlets - very convenient and comfortable. There was a lot written about the food, and we definitely gained some extra kilograms. It was very pleasing that there were no restrictions, and you could serve yourself as much as you wanted. As in any buffet, you know that leftovers will be used in salads, marinades, cooked, fried, mixed, etc. If you are worried about your stomach, there is plenty of freshly prepared food, plus 4-5 types of grilled dishes, wok, baked goods, omelets, shawarma, paella (in short, everything they cook in front of you). Well, there is a wide variety of sliced and cooked dishes, it would take a long time to list them all. The housekeeping in the room was good, the bedding was changed three times. We had access to four Russian channels on TV. The staff at the bars were friendly and welcoming. The main thing is not to be stingy, and your 1-2 dollars every three days will do their job: they will greet you with a smile, ask how you're doing, bring a bonus, and constantly make sure that your table and glasses are always full. We went on a safari on ATVs, a sea excursion to Suluada Island, and independently took public transportation to the cable car on Mount Tünektepe. In conclusion, it was a wonderful vacation and a breath of fresh air after a three-year break. Upon departure, we were told that the hotel would close for renovations during the winter, and they would replace the flooring in the rooms (we don't remember with what), change the bathtubs to shower cabins, and so on. In short, renovations are planned for the next season. It's a worthy hotel with excellent staff. We highly recommend it.

Great hotel! My husband and I stayed here in April, 222. We usually vacation in Kemer every year, but due to the closed borders of Europe, we decided to spend our week-long April vacation in Antalya. We were very worried about the attitude towards Russian tourists, as well as the currency (Russian Ruble) and the functionality of the MIR payment system. We worried for nothing! The hotel staff were very friendly and polite. Many of them speak Russian. There were no issues, insults, or segregation from tourists of other countries. The room service was excellent, and the food was very delicious and varied. I cannot comment on the evening entertainment as we did not visit it. But every evening in the lobby, we listened to live music, including performances of Russian composers' works. So we rate the hotel a solid 5. Furthermore, in the evenings, we strolled around the city, visited the nearest market, where the sellers were very happy that Russians have finally started coming to Turkey. The MIR card works only in one bank and is accepted in stores that have terminals from this bank. We took excursions with a guide from the tour operator. We paid with Russian Rubles. The excursions were also great! The guides were fantastic! Overall, it was a successful vacation! By the way, the MIR card passes smoothly in duty-free.

We stayed with our family at this hotel in mid-October 222. We debated for a long time whether the weather in Turkey in mid-October would be normal or already cold, but we still decided to go. And the weather turned out to be 41 degrees at noon and 27 degrees in the evening. The sea was 28-3 degrees. I love this kind of weather, in Turkey this temperature is not felt as strongly as it is for us. So, if anyone has doubts about the weather in October, I can say that everything is fine in Antalya. 1. Room. Everything was great with our room. They provided a full bed for the child, not a fold-out one. Although, after that, the room became a bit cramped. Our windows faced the entrance to the hotel (where the buses arrive), so there was no balcony. We had a problem with drying clothes, but we dried them on the windowsill. 2. Territory. It is huge. There are so many pools that you can't count them all! There are relaxation areas where it is always calm, and on the contrary, there are areas with constant movement. There are many different snack bars on the territory. Throughout the day, you can have a snack in many places. 3. Food. I love seafood. Here there were crabs, shrimp, and everything else. I gained 4kg in a week because I couldn't resist the food. And I haven't even eaten any pastries yet. Every day there were new dishes. All kinds of meat and side dishes. Lots of vegetables, greens, and fruits. The watermelons and melons were amazing! 4. Sea. The entrance to the sea was even. You could go in without water shoes. There were no waves. 5. Sunbeds. There were plenty available, both by the sea and around the pools. You didn't have to reserve them early in the morning. 6. Animation. Both daytime and evening animation were excellent. The staff tried their best. Although, I can't compare it to Alva onna, their animation is top-notch for me. 7. You can take a walk around the hotel. There are many markets and shops. But we went to the outlet by taxi. You have to negotiate with the taxi drivers, or better yet, catch one on the go. We also took a taxi back. 8. Which hotels is this one similar to? Limak Atlantis, Vonresort Golden Coast, Alva onna. 9. We left with tears in our eyes. Wonderful vacation, wonderful hotel, wonderful place!

We arrived at the hotel early in the morning. We waited for a bit and received a room on the third floor. The room didn't have a balcony, so we asked for a replacement. The new room was on the eighth floor, room number 8227. It was a nice room with a view of the city from the balcony. We would like to express our gratitude to our housekeeper Sevda for diligently performing her duties, thank you. The dining options at the restaurants were very well organized and catered to all tastes. We would like to thank our waiter Ali. Every evening in the lobby bar, a pianist played on the piano, and we would like to acknowledge the high skill of the pianist Ahmet. There were always free spots on the beach, and there was a bar open from 1 pm. There was also another bar near the beach where we could grab a snack, etc. The hotel had many pools, some with slides, and at night, the lighting was magnificent. We would like to mention the animators Akzhan and Taylan. In the evening, there were dance shows on the main stage, and on the smaller stage, there were quizzes and live music a couple of times a week. The hotel is conveniently located, with many shops and bazaars around. The hotel grounds are well-maintained.

The hotel is very good. We arrived around 2 pm and received the room key immediately. The room accommodated all our preferences without any additional charges. The room had been recently renovated, so there were no drawbacks. The housekeeper cleaned diligently, changing towels every day and the bedding every two days. The food was diverse: meat (beef, veal, lamb on the bone, lamb chops), poultry (chicken, turkey, duck), fish (dorado, trout, tuna, hot-smoked mackerel, grilled herring, anchovies, etc.), seafood (mussels, squid, octopus, crabs, crayfish), a variety of cheeses, fruits (watermelons, melons, cherries, apricots, plums, apples, pears, oranges, grapes, tkemali), various pastries, soups, porridges, yogurt, and so on - the list goes on. Everything was delicious! The territory was green, and the pools and slides were good. The beach was large, with enough sunbeds for everyone at any time, even the turtles. They laid their eggs in different places three times. Overall, I recommend the hotel. However, there are two minor downsides: 1) The management should consider including alcohol around the clock as it is inconvenient to pay for it from 3 am to 1 am. It would be better to increase the price slightly. And serve champagne for breakfast, it should be mandatory! 2) The Turks in the hotel (referring to the staff) have become less friendly, maybe life has become harder for them? But other than that, everything is wonderful! The vacation was a success!

We haven't been to Turkey in a long time, and since our travel options were limited this year, we decided to go to Antalya - Fame Residence Lara. And we were pleasantly surprised. A lot has changed in Turkey over the years. The service is better, and the quality of the services has improved. Our hotel impressed us with its hospitality. Everything is very convenient and comfortable. Let's start with the toilets, which are clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. The rooms have good soundproofing, comfortable beds, a free minibar that is constantly replenished with a variety of drinks, and a selection of coffee and tea. The shower is equipped with luxurious cosmetics. As for the food, it deserves a separate mention. The main restaurant offers a superb buffet, deliciously prepared and attentively served, with a wide selection of drinks, fruits, and even dishes like grilled sea bream and herring. The dining experience doesn't end there, as you can indulge in various treats on your way to the beach: Viennese waffles, ice cream, flatbreads with ayran, a huge open-air bar with a variety of food, another one with cocktails and pastries, but what really impressed us was the presence of refrigerators with chilled water at every corner. The hotel also offers a large number of pools, water slides, a spa, a sauna, and a Turkish bath. The sea is incomparable, and what captivated us was that the depth begins immediately. In the evening, there is entertainment. We arrived at the hotel at 6 am and were immediately checked in and sent to breakfast. We were leaving at 6 pm, but until 2 pm, we had access to our room and all the hotel facilities. Bravo! Huge respect to the hotel and its staff! We had a wonderful vacation and even did some shopping in Antalya. We are not usually keen on going to the same place again, but in this case, we wouldn't mind repeating it.

Stayed in a hotel from May 25, 222 AD. For 18 full days. 2 adults, 1 child. It was the third time, but it was more of my husband's desire. It was my first time in Turkey, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I don't want to come back to this hotel again. It was definitely better than in 219 AD, but not amazing. The attitude towards people from the CIS countries has improved compared to 219 AD. The negatives: the hotel and furniture were worn out, the beach was dirty - they used to clean it with small rakes. We personally pulled out sticks, bags, and bottles from the sea. There are bartenders and waiters who are very rude. It's very crowded with long queues and chaos. There are queues for the elevators in the evening and morning. It's noisy. There is an unpleasant girl at the reception who responds rudely. There are no discos as such - the DJ constantly plays Turkish music. Only once every 10 days there is a party outside - it's fun. The children's entertainment is almost non-existent. The positives: there is Mahmet at the reception, he's fantastic. There are also 2 bellboys, nice guys - they are also kind. On the beach, there is a guy who makes waffles and potatoes - he is always friendly and responsive. The room cleaner, an older woman with glasses, is also friendly and responsive - for 2-3 dollars she will fulfill your request and make towel figures, bringing beauty and cleanliness. The positives are the delicious pizza, as well as the hotel's territory and location. The food is at a 3-4 level. But of course, the majority of the minority work like bees - their productivity is impressive in such heat and humidity. Every time we came, we gave tips to the waffle guy, room cleaners, and bellboys. This time, we didn't give a tip to the woman with a tray on the beach - she works slowly and reluctantly, especially if you don't give money. This time, we used the tray service only once in 18 days. Next time, I will do everything to convince my husband to choose another hotel. I've already found one. And one more big negative, but it's about the city - the vendors are very pushy, which is scary. I wish everyone a great vacation, good mood, and positivity - after all, the main reason we go to the sea is for the sea itself. Wishing everyone kindness, good health, and peaceful skies!
