Barut Kemer Resort

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.

Update to review

I feel an update of my previous review is necessary. We arrived 3 weeks before end of season. Now towards the end of our second week which is the English school holidays things are a little different. Hotel doesn't appear full therefore restaurant appears to have really cut back on variety and quantity of food. We went for meal around 8pm last night (restaurant open until 9.30) to find a number of items had run out including juice (Fanta). If I had just arrived now I would not have felt the same as my initial review. Also some activities run by the entertainment team have been pulled. It wouldn't be so bad other than much more expensive to have come this week. Don't be deterred in coming - just wouldn't recommend this late in the season.More

Angela K,

Excellent hotel

Just come back from this excellent hotel in turkey, couldn't fault anything at all. All what it's says in the brochure and on line photos are exactly or better then it advertise. Staff, entertainment, food, facility excellent. Would go again. Very recommend indeed. Christine HoweMore

Review for families....

My husband, our 2 year old and myself have just returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday at Barut Kemer. I know alot of points have been covered so I'll try and stick to points that weren't. 1. Kids Club....absolutely brilliant. Johnny (who speaks an impressive 6 languages), Maria & Nataly work tirelessly to make sure the children are well looked after and entertained. Our little boy loved it. They would start mini club at 10am everyday doing different activities, cookie making, pirates day (fancy dress,face painting), Indiana day, painting ect ect. This would run till 12.30, it would re open at 2.30 and they always did something in the afternoon like mini golf,bowling,darts etc. All ages were catered for and entertained. They had a lovely kids room with various toys for all ages. Every night at 8.30-8.45 they would have the mini club disco which consisted of the dance routines that the kids learnt and loved. This was always followed by the giving out of certificates. Every child would get one for some reason or the other and they loved it. Just can't pay Johnny,Maria and nataly enough, they really did make Dexters holiday. 2. There was also a children's park with swings,slides,giant trampoline and ball pool. The kids club was shallow enough for my 2 year old to play in with a great giant frog water slide. 3. The drinks menu is endless. There is a pool bar and lobby bar, the lobby bar hide a bigger cocktail menu and every drink under the sun from iced tea, every soft drink, Irish coffees, champagne, wine, spirits etc etc. The lobby bar would also give me warm will every night for our little boy. 4. Food. Breakfast- served in the main buffet and everything you could think of. They Also did late breafast between 10-11. Lobby bar- between 10 and 6 they have a cabinet filled with sandwiches,cakes,pastries etc. Here toy just help yourself. Day pizzeria-served food between 12.30-4pm sit down waiter service with extensive menu (steak sandwiches,fish,chicken skewers,burgers,chips,pasta ect ect) also buffet salad here to accompany meal. Snack bar- 12-30-4pm waiter services again (pizza,pide,toasties,jacket potatoes) 4pm-6pm fresh pancakes,cakes or toasties Buffet lunch-12.-2.30 Buffet dinner 7pm-9.30pm Midnight buffet 12-1pm Ice-cream (carte do'r style strawberry,vanilla,pistachio,lemon,chocolate,strawberry) served at pizzeria between 12-30 and 4 and in main buffet during lunch and dinner. Aldo the 5 restaurants were really lovely and offered a kids menu. 5. Entertainment team were fantastic...the friendliest people I've ever met who go beyond what's expected to ensure you have a great holiday. Probably the main reason people return. A HUGE credit to Barut. They work long days but seem to love their jobs. Even waving you off when you leave with a cd, sounds so cheesy but a lovely touch!! They were all so good with our little boy Dexter (sunny boy), he was made to feel like a star. 6. The manager (the boss). Always walking round ensuring everyone's well looked after, clearly takes pride in running a great hotel!! Another credit to Barut. All in all an amazing holiday made by the great staff. I have been to lara beach before here and I do prefer that side, however for the difference in price I would say it's worth it and would choose here. Also the kids club and entertainment staff are by far the best here. Well done Barut Kemer and thank you for a wonderful holiday.More

The hotel is very good, best in Kemer. Very good service, lots of different dishes, responsive staff. The hotel's spa offers various treatments, particularly good massage for a good price. We tried the Turkish procedure - great!More

The good, the bad and the ugly

I have read many reviews on Tripadvisor regarding this hotel and in fact booked our recent holiday (10-17 October) based upon the reviews I read. Having just returned from a week at the hotel I feel I have to write a review regarding our experience which seems to conflict with almost all that I have read. Perhaps the reason for this is because we travelled with a small child and perhaps we were unlucky with the room. I don't know, but having spent almost £2000 on the holiday I would hate for anyone to experience the same as us. Whilst there are many, many good things about this hotel, there are some really big issues that for some would be a real irritation and dissatifier. Starting with the good, the food and service were generally very good particularly given the size of the hotel. There was a lot of variety in the restaurants and they catered for a cross section of tastes. The service in the main restaurant was a little bit stretched towards the end of our week when the hotel was full but even then the waiters were cheerful and tried to be helpful. The hotel is clean and housekeeping very good. The entertainment staff work incredibly hard and tried to make it a special week for all guests. Now for the bad. The hotel is located on a fairly small plot with a large hotel and small grounds. You are limited as to where you can get a sunbed and most are taken very early in the morning. The best place and quietest was in the quiet area which has its own pool. The sunbeds had much more space than in the general area where some of the sunbeds were actually touching. Unfortunately as we had our daughter we were relegated to the general area and had to take pot luck on the sunbeds as I refused to set an alarm clock to get up at 7am to reserve sunbeds. There is slightly more room on the beach but again these beds are reserved from an early hour. Noise during the day from the neighbouring Orange County hotel was sometimes an issue (particularly when I was trying to get my daughter to nap in the afternoon). The hotel has some lovely a la carte restaurants. We tried the fish and pizzeria and were very good, but we had to book over 48 hours in advance as the tables were getting booked. I was advised that many people were booking from 8am or even earlier. Possibly on the way back from reserving the sunbeds? Now for the ugly. In our experience, this is not a hotel for families travelling with young children. This is not made clear at all from the Thomson literature, nor the hotel website. We booked and paid almost £500 extra for a family room so we could enjoy sitting on the balcony and have our own space in the evening when our daughter was in bed. Sadly we could not use the balcony as the music was so loud from the Barut Kemer and the neighbouring Orange County Hotels that it made it impossible. The music was so loud that you could feel the beat when your head was on the pillows. The outside entertainment at these hotels is on until midnight, however the Kemer resort is, according to the reception staff when we raised the noise issue, party central, and went on at other bars and clubs several nights until 4am. We were unable to sleep and despite raising with the hotel and Thomsons rep were not able to move rooms as they had no quiet family rooms available, they said. Bizarre considering this is supposed to be a family hotel. In the end we had to sleep with earplugs which is not idea with a little one, and be resigned to the fact that we could not use our balcony in the evening. We spoke to many couples and families over the week, of varying ages and nationalities and almost all I of them complained about the noise. The only one who was happy was a family who faced the crazy golf and whilst agreed they had no view, said they also had no noise issues. I raised the noise issue with both the hotel and Thomsons rep. Neither I gathered from their responses had slept in these rooms and experienced the noise at night. It's all very well offering to change a room but unless you see it at 10pm then this offer is futile. In summary, I can see why this hotel ranks so highly for some people. The food and service are very good and if you like the entertainment, which I understand was very good, are not bothered by late night loud noise until the early hours, and are quite happy if you have to, to share your personal space with neighbouring holidaymakers then this is the place for you. Had I have known we would definitely have gone somewhere else. This is not a hotel for small children which is a real shame as this is fundamentally a very good hotel, not 5*, but nevertheless very good. More
