This hotel comes with a handful of à la carte restaurants and a great beach setting.
This hotel fits in nicely between mountains and the Med. The thin strip of private beach comes with loungers and its very own pier. If you want shops, bars and restaurants, Kemer’s centre is about 10 minutes’ walk away.
The dining scene is well set up with 6 restaurants – a buffet place and 5 à la cartes that feature everything from Turkish to Italian cuisine. Three pools include one with a trio of waterslides.

Great Family Holiday
We have just returned from 11 nights at this hotel and I would say overall - its a very good hotel for a family holiday. This review is for both the Hotel and the Thompson experiences - (as you likely to be using Thompson if UK guest for the Barut Kemer). The transfer time from Antalya is quite long at 1 hour 15 mins coach, and that after the long wait for bags, passports and finding your coach (there are no Thompson Reps now at the airport to help transfer you!!!!!!!), you have to rely on the Turkish coach driver - which is not good. !! We were very disappointed with this aspect of the holiday!! The transfer takes 1hr 15mins from the coach actually setting off, but the trip is ok and there are things to look at, such as three long tunnels through the mountains. As I state, there is no Thompson Rep on your coach transfer, you have just the Turkish coach driver! (this did not cause us any problems).He did not speak till we got to Kemer! Hotel Barut Kemer - the reception from the Hotel Management is exceptional, well organised and most efficient. This is the best we have ever experienced in this type of hotel and was really appreciated. Well done Barut!!! We walked through the entrance doors and the champagne cork popped....literally! This has to be the best sign in, check in and room transfer we have ever experienced - and it is really good that Managers are there to advise on their Hotel. Fantastic! The rooms are good, very clean and well set out (std holiday room layout) we had 1338 and 1343 both the same floor but facing different aspects.one faces into the hotel grounds - I am glad we didn't end up with a room that faces onto Orange County!! There is no where at this hotel to escape the noise, the music, the beat, the vibrations - and at times it is very loud, from both the Barut Kemer and the Orange County competing with their music ! The rooms are nicely furnished and very clean indeed. The beds are twins, but are large and very comfortable with really nice linen. A decent wide LCD television with range of satellite programs. There are tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer in the bathroom, even a telephone in the bathroom. The balconies are smallish, but there are two chairs a table and a clothes dryer too! The view from 1338 is really wonderful of both the pools and the sea. What is a really nice touch, the room safes are free of charge, as are the mini bar which has beer and spirits and soft drinks and you can drink it all and it gets replaced each day - all FOC! There are some really good beach bags waiting in your room with quality towels - so you do not need to bring bulky beach towels or a bag on holiday with you. You can keep the bag, which is worth doing actually. There are quality bathrobes, slippers and a welcome bottle of wine with two glasses and some really nice fruit too. WIFI - This Hotel has the Best Free wifi we have experienced anywhere, its consistently excellent with a full signal everywhere and delivers a good 60Mbs so you can upload multiple large photos on Facebook quickly and almost instantly. Never had wifi this good and so a real Big Hit with the Kids for their I-pads etc in the rooms or round the pool. This Free service should not be under estimated in this day and age and you WILL really appreciate this. There are three very nice pool areas, one main large pool which is all one depth at 1.4 mts and this is where the daytime 'activities' take place and another long thin pool which is 'quiet' for adults, its not quiet though, as you can hear the music from the main pool events. This pool as the other, is all at 1.4 mts depth, so if you have small kids under about 10 yrs who are not confident swimmers, then this can get problematic. The third pool is the 'Aqua-Park' with water slides into it, this again is all at the same 1.4 mts depth all over. There is a little baby pool at a very shallow all over depth, but this is really for tiny |Tots and parents to be in with them. Sun beds are good quality, but as ever, you do have to be down by 7:00am to 'reserve' a decent space, otherwise, you get what's left; but there are never situations when there are not enough beds for those that want sunbeds. If you want beds on the sea pier, then be prepared to get up and be down there bu 06:30am to reserve you spaces!! There is a really lovely gravel beach with a wooden pier, this is the Prime sunbathing spot and again, needs to be 'reserved' very early each morning if you want a few beds together. This gets a nice sea breeze and has truly wonderful views of the mountains. It really is a superb location in terms of picture postcard appearance. You can get drinks on the pier too, coffee and soft drinks and water. A Possible Negative for some......The pumping bass from the animation team stars at 10:00am and then until 11:45.........its ok but is relentless everyday until it goes at about 11:45am (the 'quiet' period, until about 15:00 during which time just background mix music is played - I liked most of to be fair! The bass and beat resumes at 15:00 for the afternoon activities. The pool bar... well if you are Russian - then you get served quick, if UK - then speak up and be assertive ! This is the only area of the Hotel that I found the service to be less great and my two children in particular struggled to get served sometimes. Breakfast restaurant - everything you could want! (the bacon however is just fat in grease) but there is pretty much all you could want of other food types. The omelets were delicious as were the fresh cooked pancakes which our two children loved.. This main restaurant also is there at lunch time and evening meals, all with the same wide array of international dishes. We found lots of very good quality food here and its good if kids aren't sure what they like, as they can just go back and get something different (unlike the four A-LA-Carte) A LA CARTE - Load's of choice. You can book one meal in each restaurant during your stay included in the all inclusive package, and this via the horrible touch screen units in the reception. (I got the Guest Relations to make my bookings, as i could never fathom the things to work) There are four individual specialty restaurants (sea food, Italian,Pizzeria and Asian) and we ate in three of them. This is a completely different experience to the main restaurant and, Far more civilized with exceptional waiter service and a much better standard of food and presentation. The three we used we all excellent and I would highly recommend each (we did not try the Asian). Each seem to have their own specific Staff and Restaurant Manager and they really do go the extra mile with their welcome and service. Each is totally different style and decor and even the plates and cutlery are different. We felt the quality here really did surpass the average 4 or 5 Holiday Hotel standards and was a real pleasure to go to these - the only reason we ate in the Main Restaurant more, is for the choice for the kids as I stated before. The Entertainment Team are great and start at 10:00am each day with a set range of activities throughout every day. Me and my son liked to do the Shooting and the Crazy Darts and the two that organize this are a really wonderful Pair of Lads. we also took part in the Botia (Boules) and water aerobics once. There are lots to keep you busy if you want, ,but if you want to just Relax, then at times as I said, the Loud music could become an annoyance - as you cannot escape it anywhere! It does shut up from about 11:30am until 15:00 where they just play very gently relax music over the P.A system and that is pleasant and unobtrusive. (Unless the Orange County start up and they have LOUD Music indeed! All the time there are visible Hotel Managers walking around and they will make a point of asking you what you think and what your impressions of the Hotel are. This is a very pro-active Hotel Management Chain, and, they will listen and help and they are genuinely interested to hear your views. They will also act on any issues you have (if they reasonably can) Full Marks here Barut!! On the Monday, they held a Managers Cocktail and Champagne evening for New Thompson Guests on a balcony terrace high up with great views. This was Primarily to introduce all the Key Managers and hear your views about the Hotel and specific service issues etc. Really nice touch this. The Hotel is about a thirty five minute walk to the little Marina and before you get to that, there are stacks of shops along the way to buy Genuine Fake Designer goods of all makes and descriptions. You need to barter and expect to pay about 50% less than the starting price they come up with. You can pay in Turkish Lira, US Dollars and Euros - they seem to like dollars best! so take a mixed bag, or change it at the Hotel Reception - as the rates at the Hotel are far better than in England !!! Overall, this Hotel is an excellent vacation Hotel. Its not comparable to a Five Start London Hotel, and never can be as its trying to be so many things in one Hotel -but you cannot expect London Standards on a Package Holiday Hotel... . It does however compare very well with the best five star seaside holiday hotels of this Genre, and, has some extra over touches as well that others of the same Class do not. It has to be the best one we have stayed in of this type (and we only ever book five start abroad) and I would give it a 9 out of Ten for the whole experience. Well done Barut Kemer, we will definitely be returning again.More

What a fantastic hotel!
From the minute we arrived at Barut Kemer we received excellent service. Everything about the hotel was 5 star! Fantastic clean hotel with excellent food in the restaurant and A La carte restaurants. Drinks stocked in mini bar daily. Never had a problem with sunbeds or to wait to be served for drinks. I had emailed hotel as we had booked 2 rooms and asked for them to be near each other this was done without a problem, We got rooms 2116 and 2118 which was overlooking the quiet pool and main pool. On the Monday night we met the management team and the animation team for cocktails on the 4th floor this was nice to discuss any problems or to give your opinion of the hotel etc. The staff were all very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We have been to Turkey twice before but this was far the best hotel we have been to and look forward to returning next year with our friends! Look out Serdal fror my emails!!!More

Great Family Hotel
My wife and I stayed here for 10 nights with our friends and their 2 children. the hotel is very clean and tidy, and the staff are always around constantly cleaning all area's. The food we could not fault, every type of food you could think of and for everybody's tastes. in the main restaurant we went for dinner later about 8-8.30pm as before this time the restaurant is very busy and it can feel like a canteen. The a la carte restaurants were very good, we tried the Italian, Turkish and the Asian and I would recommend these as the food and service was superb. The entertainment team were excellent with everybody and made a real fuss of the children. The swimming pools clean and checked every day for PH levels. The rooms were very clean, yes not 5 star quality but comfortable but as some one mentioned you only sleep there. The beds however were extremely comfy. We all thought that the baby swimming pool could do with a canopy over it to create some shade for the little toddlers as on some days it was over 40 degrees, and you try keeping children out of the sun as much as possible. Overall we all had a very good 10 days a big thank you to all the staff for trying to keep everyone happy for there holiday. They are constantly asking for feedback which was new to us.More
