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.

4th time.....possibly last time.
This was our 4th visit and probably the last. Don't get me wrong, if you were visiting for the first time you'd probably be very impressed but because we've been here many times we've noticed the decline. Only very slight things over the years but when added all up it takes away from the experience. There used to be a fridge by the arena bar which you could help yourself to beer or a soft drink. Now it stocks only water. This fridge was so handy because during busier times you could just help yourself. Not any more. The so called 24 hour joia bar is nothing of the sort anymore. They want you out of there for 12 o'clock at night and ushered into the soul less irish bar down stairs. There is a very noticeable shortage of staff now. Many times we had to go to the bars ourselves and get drinks. Previous years there was no such thing. It's not the staffs fault, they are overworked. Like many organisations in life, too many chiefs etc. Sometimes the same person would be serving behind the bar cleaning the tables and taking orders at the same time. Simply not enough staff. The pier bar used to be run like clockwork. You now had to go the bar almost every time and there was never enough shelter away from the scorching sun. The quality of the drinks has gone right down the nick. The first year we were here every drink was like an 'A' grade cocktail. Now it's like it's made as quickly as possible to get you served. No more mariachi beer as well, which was lovely. Don't get me wrong, you sometimes got a wonderful cocktail but that was only when it was quiet in that bar. The quality of the entertainment was shocking this year. Out of the ten nights we stayed there was 2 good bands on at the poolside bar. One a rock band from Moldova, were great. They got everyone up for it. The rest of time were either terrible karaoke nights or the 'easy listening duo' from upstairs would double as the night time entertainment. If you had a good voice out here you would make a mint. I never heard one good voice in 10 days. I used to love the hour before dinner when the violin and piano couple would play in the lobby. They are at the imperial now. It seems all the best staff have gone there. After a day or two I was told there was a privilege card for repeat guests waiting for me at the guest relations office. I was excited to see what it entailed. The guy in guest relations said it would get me various discounts and free shuttle bus to the airport on arrival and departure. This I liked. When I went to book my lift to the airport for my departure I was told this was for people who had been here at least 6 times. "Why was I told otherwise" I said to the guy at reception, "I don't know" he said, blankly. The flight times to and from the UK were changed to night times by Thomas Cook and this also ruined the holiday. It wiped the 1st day off and had us hanging around the last day. I did ask could I keep the room on and was willing to pay for it but I was refused. This entailed us getting showers etc in a communal area which was highly embarrassing and demeaning. I'll never do this again. You pay all this money and your left getting washed in an area with people walking past staring at you as if you've just wandered in off the streets for a wash. At least put this area out of the way. We always book our holiday just after the little cherubs have gone back to school. This made no difference here. There were more kids than normal. Many of them were wonderful and made us laugh. There were too many little screamers here though. Not their fault as the parenting skills of these children needed big time evaluation. My children would never behave in such a manner, they were brought up not to. I know we could have gone to the adult pool but you were scared of making noise here, it's too quiet actually. Without trying to sound snobbish the clientele of the hotel has changed over the years. This probably has something to do with the hotel having to operate at maximum capacity. It's a lot cheaper to holiday here now than the 1st year we stayed. And the type of person staying has reflected that. No manners at all from most nations, the Germans and British aside, I have to say. So, possibly our last time here. Still a lovely hotel but time for a change we think. We tipped the good staff on the last day with a little sadness in our hearts knowing we'll never see them again, probably.More
The staff are professional and extremely helpful. Always smiling . They try to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. The facilities are easy to reach . The food is delicious with big variety. You really do not need to bring anything from outside the resort since everything is available. They have pleasant shows and great animation team. All in all me and every member in my family loved the place. Certainly we will come back again. Thanks to all the staff one by one .More

On arrival it looks impressive very posh and grand we were shown to our rooms which were nice but dated it was about 11.30 and we wanted a drink after our long flight so we went back downstairs and out to the pool bar which was dead it was all closed we went back into the reception bar which was supposed to be 24hr and that was also closed so we just decided to go to bed but this was the case every night everything was closed and dead by 11.30, all the drinks were local and tasted disgusting I'm not a big drinker but this was the first holiday that I never drank, the food in the main restaurant you couldn't fault with plenty of choice but the al a carte restaurants were nothing to write home about at all, all in all beautiful hotel to look at but no atmosphere what so ever and I won't be returning again More
Not what it used to be
This was our 3rd tine at this hotel and we were expecting a similar service as the last 2 times, once we had checked in we were directed to the sports bar for a bit to eat as it was 11pm and the main food areas were closed, the only food available was cold and only the last remains. The bar down by the bowling alley , pool tables and arcade games was now permanently closed so the closest bar was a good walk away, not good enough for how much you pay. The dining service was also not 5* you can tell there are cut backs as there are a lot less staff which results in dirty tables being stood for ages and people looking for a clean table to sit at, we often ordered drinks from the waiters that never appeared. The was only 1 lifeguard on the odd day by the slide pool and none at the main pool, The hotel is now starting to date and we would not go back The shops outside are now very expensive and the shop keepers now seem to have a chip on their shoulders and are very rudeMore
No as it used to be
stayed in 2013 and was amazed with the service and I gave 5 star at the time, however on this occasion I was shocked from the redness of the reception team on check in to the quality of service, food selection and the list can go on, as second time booker I thought I send an email and asked if I can have an upgrade and of course I was willing to pay the difference , but no one bothered to reply back to my two emails. on check in Reception team won't even look at you while checking you in, didn't clean the room on two days, asked for late check out our flight was at 23:20 and was told I can only check on last day, which was weird for me, anyway end up paying 50 euros and they refused to give me a receipt for that, night entertaining very boring, to be honest when I asked one of the staff who barley speaks english he told me that I should've booked the dolphin imperial as the management only pay attention and care about their new baby (as he said), would I go to Turkey again yes, would I book the same hotel NOOOO Stayed September 2016More
