Akra Park Barut Antalya Reviews
Akra Barut Sep 09, 2016
The hotel Acra Barut is a big hotel, divided into two parts by a road, in Antalya. It has a wide range of facilities, including a spa, hammam, five or so separate swimming pools, tennis courts, and about the biggest hotel buffet breakfast I’ve ever seen. Seriously, there were roughly 8 different varieties of olive alone. At least a dozen kinds of bread roll. Three course breakfasts became the overwhelming theme of our trip.
Absolutely all the staff members were lovely. No one was ever grumpy (even when we failed to catch the baby in an attempt at launching his breakfast off the side of his high chair). The food was always excellent (we ate dinner there most nights), and the facilities were spotless and had enough space. There are also gardens, and access to sea swimming off a concrete bay down the cliff.
The sunsets over the sea looked like inspirational memes. It was beautiful. The hotel itself is an enormous concrete tower but you don’t have to look that way.
The one thing to note is that the main hotel has all the facilities. We knew when we booked that we were booking into “Acra Park”, which is on the other side of a busy road, and that we would have to cross either the stairs to the footbridge or the complicated roundabout to get to the pool, and this made our room a lot cheaper. But we met people who had booked through agencies who didn’t realise this and they were understandably cross that they hadn’t been warned in advance. This isn’t the hotel’s fault, or course.
It’s hard to comment on cost or value for money as we got a hefty discount, but I would absolutely go back. This isn’t the place for backpacker type travel – there are some lovely houses in the old city if that’s your plan – but for lazing by a pool and only venturing out now and again it’s fantastic.
