Barut Kemer

Families are catered for around the clock at the Barut Kemer, thanks to a mini aqua park, three swimming pools and a choice of restaurants.

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 six restaurants – a buffet place and five à la cartes that feature everything from Turkish to Italian cuisine. Three pools include one with a trio of waterslides.

Great hotel

Lovely hotel, the pools and beach were excellent. The food was good and the staff were very helpful, some outstanding staff (such as Ummu) really made the difference between a good and great holiday. The local area felt safe and the hotel had good security so felt at ease with my two young children there. Lots of Russian holidaymakers who were a little rude to the staff but did not bother us and did not impact on our holiday. I would definitely visit again.More

First time in Turkey. Great holiday

We returned from a two week stay at the Barut Kemer Hotel, today, and have had a great holiday at this lovely resort. I cannot praise the management and their staff enough for the effort they put into making our stay unforgettable. We had a room on the 4th floor facing the mountains. We didn't miss the sea view as the vista from our room was excellent. The rooms are a good size and all the facilities within are good. We initially had a problem with the A/C but a call to reception soon had this resolved. The grounds of the hotel are immaculate. The gardening and cleaning staff continuously keep everything spotless. They deserve a special mention for their efforts. The animation team added to our enjoyment throughout the two weeks. They are not pushy but provide activities throughout the day. Special mention goes to Anastasia who was excellent with the morning stretching but is a really approachable member of this team who provided additional information about the hotel and the Kemer area. With her people skills she could easily work in the guest relations team and would be a great asset to any hotel in that role. The thing that can make or break a holiday is the food and restaurant staff. We were not disappointed. The quality of the food was excellent in all the A la carte and the buffet restaurant. There was plenty of variety over the two weeks and we always managed to find something nice to eat. The Turkish dishes provided were extremely good. The only negative of the fortnight was the service in the Ocean Restaurant. The food was excellent but courses arrived at the same time and my wife's main dish was the wrong one. We put this down to a one off as the service in all the other A la carte's was spot on. I need to give special thanks to Turkan,Orcan and Alpaslan who gave us great service throughout the fortnight in thev buffet restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was SUPER (That's for you Turkan). There is a varied evening programme of shows in the outdoor amphitheatre followed by music in the outdoor dance area. A word of warning here. It can get extremely hot in the amphitheatre as any breeze you get at the top disappears once you enter the seated area. The piano bar indoors is a nice quiet area and the barman (sorry, I've forgotten his name) in there makes the best Mohitos in the hotel. The Tomsons reps advised that the majority of guests staying in the hotel were British. It certainly didn't feel that way as we got the feeling the majority were Russian or from former soviet states. Be warned, there are cultural differences but it did not spoil our enjoyment of this hotel. We would definitely go back for another holiday.More

Fantastic hotel

We have returned from a 7 night stay and were impressed with this hotel from check in to the evening we checked out. The room was spotlessly clean with a huge kingsize bed and generous single. There was a pillow menu to allow you to choose which type of pillow you would like. The entertainment was varied and lots of choice of food in the main buffet style restaurant. You have to book the a la carte restaurants in advance and we visited the Turkish restaurant which was a nice change with excellent table service. All the staff were excellent, but there were three members of staff who were truly fantastic - Tayfun who works on the reception desk, Ummu who works in the buffet restaurant and lobby bar and Ozcan the barman at the lobby bar/cocktail lounge. All three were extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you Barut Kemer, we would not hesitate to stay with you again and recommend you to others.More

Lovely Holiday

We returned a week ago from the Barut Kemer hotel after staying there for a week and having a lovely time. It was our first time in going to Kemer, usually we stay in Lara Beach. Our room was clean and spacious, with a nicely sized balcony which overlooked the beautiful mountains which surround the whole of Kemer. Other reviews have complained about the noise, however, during the night, we had no trouble sleeping. The food in the main restaurant is amazing. Chicken is my favourite food and I was delighted to see so much of it at lunch and dinner times. The chicken wings were amazing and my friend enjoyed the pizza, as she is a vegetarian. At breakfast, you must try the pancakes. They really are the best, so fluffy and light. They even serve bacon which is also lovely. My friend also enjoyed the halloumi and would recommend that to all. During the day, we sunbathed around the quiet pool near the top end of the hotel. It could be quite noisy during the day, but never too bad. The pool was so wonderful and refreshing, seeing as the weather was around 35 + degrees everyday. It can be quite difficult to get a sunbed, so I'd get up at a reasonable time to put a towel on where you'd like your bed. Throughout the day, ice cream is served until 4. The cherry and chocolate ice cream flavours are to die for and the crepes in the afternoon are also nice, which can be served with a variety of toppings, including chocolate, nuts. Also in the afternoon, pizza, sandwiches and other foods are served, in case you may be hungry after lunch. The entertainment in the evening is great. We watched a few of the shows including an acrobatics and bike/roller skates show which really were amazing! I love to work out and exercise so I went to the gym during my stay at the hotel. In the gym, there is a variety of equipment and machines, including treadmills, exercise bikes, leg curl machine, etc. There are also weights in different sizes which can be used. I was glad to see a couple of leg machines as I mainly work out my legs rather than any other body part. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Barut Kemer and had a wonderful week there. Thank you!More

Another lovely holiday at the Barut Kemer

This was our second visit to this lovely hotel (18 June- 2 July 2015) and it was as good if not better on this return visit. If you are considering booking a holiday to Turkey you won’t be disappointed with this hotel it is first class from start to finish. We arrived at the Hotel about 11pm local time and were greeted with a glass of champagne, our check in was very friendly and efficient and after check in we were directed to the restaurant for a midnight buffet. Our luggage was swiftly delivered to our rooms. It’s worth going to the welcome meeting the following morning which is also attended by the management team of the hotel. Lilly the Thomson Rep was helpful and available in the hotel every day. The management team can be seen walking around the hotel on a daily basis and the guests are invited to a weekly Managers Cocktail Party which is held on the high Terrace with lovely views over the Hotel grounds / pools and sea. The hotel and grounds are immaculate and all of the staff are a credit to this hotel, it seems unfair to single anyone out because they are all so committed to ensure that everyone is happy and has a lovely holiday. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds and a choice of pillows, Air Con and a mini bar which is refilled on a daily basis. On arrival our room had a bottle of wine and a fruit bowl and each room has a Barut Beach Bag (which you can keep) filled with two beach towels which can be exchanged at the towel kiosk by the pool each day. The housekeeping is pristine and the bathroom towels are refreshed twice each day – morning & evening. There is a nice selection of toiletries (small size bottles) supplied and replaced daily. Our room maid Yuksel was a really lovely lady and made some amazing towel decorations as a surprise for us returning to our room. This hotel has free Wifi which is a bonus and the connection was brilliant. There are several pools – two focused for families and one which is quieter and more for adults. There are ample sun beds and we didn't find the need to get up too early in order to reserve a bed. Having said that it was wonderful to go down to the jetty very early morning and enjoy the tranquillity before everyone was up and about. The jetty opens up at 7am and there are lots of sun beds on the jetty and steps down to the sea. The sea is beautifully and clear, the beach is a pebble beach with plenty of sun beds and a long row of canopy for shelter and there are refreshment stations close by on the jetty otherwise it is a short way back to the pool bar. The food in this hotel was very good. During the day you can choose from a menu down by the beach or the Jacket Potato and Pizza area which serve from 12 noon to 4pm or you can go to the main buffet restaurant which offers a wide variety of good food. Orcan our waiter always helpful and keen to serve us. There are Crepes made fresh every afternoon until 5pm down by the pool bar food area. There are sandwiches and cakes available from 10am to 6pm in the Lobby Bar. On an evening you can choose from the main buffet restaurant or one of the 5 al a-la-carte restaurants: Asian, Ocean (Fish), Saffran (Turkish), Olive (Mediterranean) which are located above the Main Buffet Restaurant or the Pizzeria (pizza, fajitas, pasta, steak) which is set up on by the beach bar overlooking the jetty/sea each evening. This hotel also has a cinema, an indoor bowling alley, Hairdressers, Doctors, a selection of shops and a gym as well as an indoor swimming pool and Spa. I would recommend booking into the a-la-carte restaurants on an evening, it makes such a difference to be served rather than wander around the buffet selection in the main restaurant. The Al-a-carte restaurants’ can be booked from 8am each morning for 3 days in advance at the machine in reception and the Guest Relations lady is always at hand and very helpful when you want to make a booking. The Animation Team are a friendly group of people who don’t hassle you to join in anything if you don’t want to. There is a lovely morning stretching class and afternoon Pilates ran by Anastasia on the grassed area overlooking the sea, as well as Aqua Gym, Shooting, Boules, Darts, mini golf. All of the team are such good fun especially Apoly who is the funny man of the group. They work so hard to make sure you have a lovely holiday. The night time shows in the amphitheatre are entertaining our favourite shows during our visit were the Moscow kid’s circus and the Mr & Mrs show. After the show there is live music every night by the pool bar but some evenings we preferred to retreat to the quieter Terrace area and Lobby Bar where Ummu and Emine always greeted us with a smile and were quick to get us our refreshments whilst we sat back and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The location of the hotel is very good, there are several shops close by. It is about a 15 minute walk to the centre and the harbour. There is a Market in Kemer each Tuesday – remember to barter and look out for the British Lady who sells the Turkish Bath Robes, SPA Towels and soaps, her prices are fair and she sells quality products. The main currencies to be accepted in the market and shops are Lira and Euro and they will accept the Pound too. I would especially like to thank the service of the Guest Relations Manager (Ereken? sorry if I have misspelt your name). He was so helpful throughout our stay. Upon our departure we were waved off by the Animation Team as well as several members of staff and as we got on to the coach to leave we were served with Turkish delight and chocolates. It is those extra touches throughout our stay that makes it somewhere you will want to return. We travelled as a couple and my previous visit was with my elderly parent. The hotel caters for all age groups and appeared to have good facilities for the disabled too with wide accessible paths. We look forward to staying at this hotel again and would certainly recommend it.More
