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.

We stayed in the Delphin Palace from 12th to 20th April 2015. As quite common with Turkish arrivals, we arrived at 0200 hours and were welcomed by night reception staff that checked us in swiftly, gave us a quick introduction of the hotel and presented us (2adults/2children) with Delphin Palace goody bags. A nice touch. The hotel is spotlessly clean. There is a huge number of staff and they all have a smile on their faces, ranging from reception, cleaners, bar staff, restaurant staff, guest relations, spa/wellness, kids club and of course the entertainment team. All of these people ensured that we had an excellent holiday for our duration. We've stayed in a couple of all inclusive hotels in Lara Beach and Delphin Palace was our best so far. Food - The food is excellent and varied so plenty for fussy eaters to choose from. There are 7 a la cartes (6 opened for our stay) and we could have visited each one. We visited the Italian, Mexican and Chinese all of which we really enjoyed. The Chinese is probably not your traditional UK Chinese food but it was excellent all the same. These have to be booked the day before on a self service reservation system by reception. We had a Turkish gala night on our stay (presume there's 1 every week) and this was exceptional. Turkish cuisine is really lovely. In the main buffet restaurant, there are 5 or 6 show cooking area's as well. If you want to eat for 24 hours a day, you could. There are different things on throughout the day ranging from ice creams, pizza's made to order, pasta made to order, waffles, kebabs, chicken wings, etc. Drink - there is a large variety of alcohol available both import and local. The only real issue we had with alcohol was the import spirits were only available in certain bars so we only drank certain drinks in certain places. That is the only change i would make in terms of drink. I would make the import spirits available throughout the hotel. Entertainment - The entertainment team work really hard and encourage guest participation in small games around the pool with forfeits like jumps into the cold pool if you fail (i had the pleasure a few times, thanks Kasper). Evening entertainment is typical hotel entertainment, reasonably varied in type and emphasising on dancing and visual entertainment to avoid language barriers for the multi national visitors. The kids liked it and we were quite happy to watch it as well before going up to the main bar. The kids club is really good. Our kids (8 & 6) only went a couple of times as in general they'd rather just play in the pool but the Palace kids club is very relaxed, kids can come and go to suit the parents unlike other hotels were kids club is only open certain times. Guest relations are there to help you if you have any questions. Delphin Palace is part of the Delphin Group of hotels. We wanted to look at the Imperial and Diva next door to the Palace and you are to able to visit them to have a look around for comparison. The Palace has one heated outdoor pool which was easily the most populated pool for our stay. The cold pools were COLD but i imagine these would be very welcomed in the upcoming summer months. Speaking of heat, the air con wasn't on for our stay and the rooms were very warm at night time. Easily fixed by opening the balcony door a little. this may not suit all families. The previous week was cold weather so maybe the hotel turned it off as not required. We had really nice weather when we stayed so probably could have done with the air con being on. We like to try new hotels each year but imagine we will return to the Palace next year as it had everything we needed and more for our week long Easter break. PS: It's not imperative but i would recommend paying the extra for the sea view rooms. It makes all the difference looking out to the Med sea. For those of you bothered about the nationalities staying at the hotel, it was mostly German but i believe a lot more Russians arrive in the Summer months. I quite like mixed nationalities in hotels so it wasn't an issue for myself. There was no fighting for sunbeds as there were ample amounts. The hotel seemed very busy so i don't think it would be an issue in the summer months either. The fun park (Luna Park as it's named) consists of dodgems, mini ferris wheel, galleon ship, chair o planes and a train. Apart from the dodgems, i would say that they were getting a bit tame for my 8 yr old. They have the same attractions at the other Delphin hotels only bigger in size so the older kids (say 8 - 13) might prefer the Luna Parks at the Imperial or Diva. Only the Palace an Imperial have heated outdoor pool. Due to the enormity of the Imperial, i would most likely choose the Palace everytime. The Luna Park is only opened 2 hours a day whereas you can swim all day so the Palace would get my vote. It's big enough not to leave the hotel, yet small enough to befriend the waiters etc. They get to know you personally. I'm not sure that would be the case at the imperial, given the size of it. Looking forward to my next visit to Delphin Palace Danny Walsh (Irishman as Kasper called me for the week, rm 7106)More
Just got back from the delphin palace and would just like to congratulate this hotel on the fantastic service that it offered from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. We travelled as a family, 4 kids, 18 month twins plus a 15 an 11 year old, and had two rooms next to each other. Everyone loved it and wished we could have stayed longer, but still felt happy that we stayed at this hotel. Spoke to some people who thought there were even better hotels in Lara, but I'm not sure how you could genuinely beat this hotel. It really does depend how you define luxury, but to me it really is about the way your treated as a guest. The staff in this hotel could not do enough for us and it really is the reason I am now writing this review to thank them. Nothing was to much trouble and the impression I always got was that they were glad to do it. Stayed five star before, but never had five star service until now. The hotel has everything you need plus more, and the a la carte were also first class, especially the Japanese resteraunt. Not sure if they could maintain this level of service in peak season, when the hotel is fully booked, but they have left us with nothing but good memories and a feeling that we have been spoilt.More

we have stayed at this five star hotel seven times in the last four years and it never fails to impress. The staff in the restaurant would bend over backwards for you ensuring you have the best service ever. And that your holiday from start to finish is as memorable as ever. More
This is the 4th time my family has stayed at the Delphin Palace, and it just keeps getting better. For a totally relaxing stay that's perfect for families then you can't go wrong with this hotel. It's all inclusive, and the quality and range of food and drink is astonishing. Truly something for everyone. The rooms and grounds are spotless and the entertainment team do a brilliant job to keep the kids happy in the day time and the adults entertained in the evening (special mention to Caspar of course!). All the staff are super friendly and happy to help in any way. Go, you will not be disappointed.More
