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.

This was our 3rd stay in lara beach - i suppose our expectations of the palace were more than we experienced! The hotel is tired and the service is poor - staff spoke poor english and often got our drinks wrong everyday . This hotel is not 5 star and is over priced - we stayed at royal wings last year and it was a million times better on food and service - the al a cart at the wings is 5 star plus !! Delphin you disappointed us with u premium price and poor service .. We had a good holiday because we made the best of it but we wont be returning .. More

Beautiful resort, but felt like a cruise ship
Each resort in Antalya is trying to outdo the other. They are lined up next to each other on the beach. Delphin Palace is beautiful with large pool and beach pier. You need to get up early to get chairs by the pool. The kids stayed busy swimming, going on the water slides, and going to the beach. The food quality is about a 7 out of 10. The theme restaurants are better than the main restaurant. At dinner we felt we were on a cruise ship, with everyone coming to eat at the same time. There was great variety of food and there was food everywhere at the resort. There are carts that come by the pool that have fruit and veggies for snacks, which was nice. The alcohol is all cheep brands. We got a seaview junior suite which was by the outdoor stage, so we heard the performance at night time. Things finally quieted down by 11pm. The bathrooms need to be updated. Great view. Nice place to just relax. Kids had a great time.More

Lovely hotel though pictures are outdated. Ala carte restaurants were fabulous but brochure states adults only they are not.Food in all restaurants was great and plenty of choice and most staff were friendly. Hotel would be better if there were adults only sections as this is not a couples friendly hotel and there is not enough entertainment for adults unless you were german.More

Definitely in top 100 best hotels in the world
I just can write a book about delphin palace. The hotel is just great from any angle. definitely 9+ worth hotel. This is luxury. some details are very important,such as the quality of food was mindblowing, 10/10 for me, the amount of chicken,beef, etc was high and very tastefull. The pier of the hotel is just a cherry on the cake, you even got served at the pier. Maybe the biggest disadvantage of this hotel is the size of the pier is a bit small, if they would make another pier I would give this hotel definitely 9.7 rating.More

Second stay in Turkey
After a stay at the Golden Dragon in Side 2 years ago, we just returned from a 2 weeks family stay at Delphin Palace in Lara Beach. In side, all the customers were Russian or German, we struggled to find any staff speaking English. In the Delphin, there was a load more British tourists and entertainment was also in English as well as other languages. The location of the hotel is perfect e.g. right on a private beach, 20minutes drive from airport and Antalya centre. The noise of airport is limited so not a problem. The hotel is also on a main promenade with loads of Bazaars on the door step for an evening stroll. There are some newer, bigger hotels in Lara beach but further away from civilisation. The Delphin Imperial in 5min up the road and apparently a new hotel will be built by the same group on the wasteland in between those 2 complexes. One day, we took the courtesy bus to Antalya centre (you need to book 24h ahead). We stayed 4 hours in the old town. It is enough to wander through the old streets and get a feel for the place. We did not have time to go to the Aquarium or to Terra City but both are about 20min from hotel. The grounds of the hotel are great with loads of well cared for greenery, loads of four posted "beds"/"cabanas" in the gardens to rest in the shade. There is an adult only pool and 3 other pools (main pool, slides/ aquapark pool and children's paradise). There are loads of sunbeds, loads of umbrellas.... no issue to find a spot. All really clean and tidy. The shade in the baby area made it a much better choice for toddlers than the Golden Dragon. For older kids however, the Aquapark in Golden Dragon had more to offer. The hotel facilities are nice and the hotel atmosphere is comfortable. It is grand "oldie worldlyÂ», not the ultra-modern minimalist style. Overall the staff is helpful and friendly except for the reception staff 8 we had the same issue in Side). If you have any question, go to the guest relation team and not to the reception desk (there was lady staff there who was most unhelpful and rather aggressive). There is a huge amount of very good food at all times during the day in the restaurants and by the pool areas. We tried 2 a la carte restaurants, we would recommend the Pekin restaurant but less the ottoman as the main restaurant offers so much food that itâs hard to compete in terms of choice and quality. In the main restaurant there is a huge variety of food to choose from including local specialities, loads of fresh grilled meats and fishes..... They even have a pasta bar and jacket potato station (in main restaurant and by the pool) for those who really canât find anything else to suit their taste. The whole inclusive really covers all foods and pretty much all drinks that you want. If i am being picky, the quality of cocktails was poor not by the lack of alcohol but more poor staff training in cocktail making....the beauty of inclusive is that you can sample the whole range of drinks until you find the one you like. The double room was adequate in size for 2 adults and 2 small children. The decor is good, the shower room recently refurbished. We had a sea view room. The room was lovely BUT evening entertainment is really loud in those rooms (it finishes at midnight however). If you would like more peace and quiet, stay away from see view. The kids clubs offers good facilities, air conditioned, in the shade with a decent activity program. The team at the mini club was really good and worked really hard from 10am till 9pm. There is a small Luna park on site with a few rides to enjoy before mini disco. The spa is good and not pushing too hard on the sale. The beach is sandy, clean and the water nice and warm. We never tried the disco or the cinema. The game room is not huge but OK with bowling too. Only weaknesses to report are: evening entertainment, although provided by external groups was poor pretty much every night. The noise in the evening in our see view room. The lack of lifts (there are only 5 lifts and you need to fight to keep your slot at rush hour). A definite issue with drains in the wasteland outside the hotel compound by the slide pool ( e.g. we were so excited to get a cabana at the bottom of the slide pool on the first day...... after a few minutes the smell around the area explained the availability in this area). Overall, a good,safe, child friendly 5 star hotel. I would not necessarily go back to the same one, but would happily recommend it if you have kids and want a lazy break away in the sun.More
