This huge hotel sits right next to Lara Beach, so you can be on the sands in under a minute.
The Delphin Palace Hotel is pretty impressive to look at – a grand red building topped with gold domes. It’s got the goods to back it up, too, with massive pools and stacks of restaurants to try out.
The hotel sits just back from Lara Beach – a minute’s walk through landscaped gardens will put you on the sand. As for bedrooms, they’re big and come with balconies and all the usual mod-cons.

Avoid this hotel if your health is important!!
You will note that I have rated this review as "average". I have done this because I think people take more notice of average reviews than the "poor" reviews. I Visited Delphin Palace in July 2014 on the recommendation of my wife's brother (who has travelled the world and claimed it to be the best hotel at which he'd ever stayed). I stayed there with my wife, 17 yr old and 3 yr old daughters. 1st impressions were excellent, the hotel was very grand and immaculate, huge variety of delicious food, friendly and helpful staff, and good entertainment (particularly for our 3 yr old). My wife, 17 yr old and I became very ill exactly one week after our arrival. My 3 yr old was the only one not to suffer at all, and coincidentally the only one not to have eaten their cooked food (she's rather fussy and survived on bread and pretzels)! We all suffered similar symptoms but my own were the most severe - I suffered severe stomach pains, cramps and diarrhoea for 4 consecutive days (I always expect some bowel looseness with a change of diet abroad, but nothing could have prepared me for this). I followed all the correct protocols by reporting it to the Thomas Cook rep. I also complained to the Guest Relations Manager and eventually felt it necessary to speak directly to the hotel director. The reception I received from all was not particularly sympathetic! I was informed that the stomach problems could not possibly have been caused by the hotel food or swimming pools because of their strict hygiene standards (the Thomas Cook hotel rep said that nobody else had complained - thanks for that, I now feel much better as I must be imagining it)! I visited the hotel's on-site doctor and was prescribed medication which resolved the issues within 2 days. The hotel tried to charge us 90 euros for the privilege of seeing the doctor and a further 11 euros for the medication, but after pointing out that we had not left the hotel's premises since our arrival and after a lengthy heated argument with the Guest Relations Manager, they caved in and provided it all free of charge. Thereafter, we found ourselves scrutinising the hotel's hygiene standards and what we found was incredulous.... the communal toilets are all inspected regularly (apparently) and a sheet is then signed by staff to confirm the hygiene standards are acceptable. Whilst using the mens' communal toilet located by the ampitheatre, I observed a member of cleaning staff enter the toilet and immediately sign the inspection sheet without so much as a glance into the cubicles. I followed him out and then observed him do the same thing in the disabled toilet located directly adjacent to the mens' toilet. I looked in the disabled toilet as soon as he'd left (and before anybody else used it) and could not believe what I witnessed....there was human excrement smeared on the toilet seat and what can only be described as filth in a corner of the toilet (and the member of cleaning staff had signed to declare the toilet clean and fit for use)! I am currently in dispute with Thomas Cook, who have so far offered us a Â£100 gesture of good will towards another Thomas Cook holiday! They claim the their hotel rep has no record of any complaints and neither has the hotel. Clearly this is a complete falsehood, because we complained and so did a number of other families during our stay. The 7-yr old child of one couple spent 23 hours in the nearest hospital and was diagnosed with gastroentiritis. I have refused Thomas Cook's offer and am in the process of contacting ABTA. Failing this, I will seek independent arbitration to try to resolve my dispute or take the matter to the civil courts. Delphin Palace holiday makers please be very aware!!More
Visited the Delphin at the end of August. From start to finish every need was taken care of by friendly staff and every inch of the hotel was beautiful. It was filled with luxury and was spotless - hotel had plenty of amenities and a wide variety of food and drinks. Pools were also clean and safe and the hotel had a lovely, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I have recommended this hotel to anyone visiting Lara beach. Perfect hotel and lovely destination. More

Delphin in Decline ?
4th Visit to Delphin Palace as part of 16 night visit to Lara Stayed here 3 nights at the end of September Disappointed we were not recognized as returning guests as it was our 5th visit to Delphin Hotels No returning room room upgrade either Service as good as ever Entertainment as bad as ever in the lobby lounge No international branded drinks unless you asked for them from below the counter and not much of a choice Food of very high standard and quality Not much else to report as i have said it in previous reviews Weather last week in September fantastic and over 30 degrees each dayMore

Another fantastic holiday!
This was our 5th visit but 1st time in October, we normally stay in August. I can't fault anything yet again. Temps were a little chilly first thing and at night so do take a couple of warm tops etc. Make sure you iron everything before you go as no irons are allowed in the rooms, but plenty of hanging and drawer space. The recent upgrade to the bathroom have made a great difference. We did have a couple of days of rain to start with however the staff worked so hard to clear up any excess water outside. Everything carried on the same apart from the shows were inside. This did increase people sitting inside in the evening so sometimes hard to get a seat. The outdoor pool was a little cold to use however our daughter made full use of the indoor pool, something we never use in August! The food choice was fantastic, something for everyone even the fussiest of eaters! Waiters were on the ball with refreshing drinks. The food displays were beautiful. Lovely to find many of the staff remember us. Special mentions to Ali, Guest Relations Manager, Murat and Ozge, Front Desk Manager! Looking forward to visiting again in August 2015.More
