“good reviews confirmed”
I can only confirm the good things already written about this hotel. Before we went I contacted the hotel regarding some concerns, this was dealt with promptly and was passed on to the hotel. All staff were friendly and efficient and bar staff made real efforts to give you what you want in our case Bacardi and different scotch whiskies.Food choices were excellent,enough variety to suit all tastes.A belated thank you to the laundry section who collected and delivered our items in one day along with thirty five euros I left in a trouser pocket.
We have stayed in a few good hotels in Turkey,but plan to return to the cornelia de luxe next year.
“Another great stay”
This is our third stay here. Having been so impressed on previous visits we brought our parents. They thoroughly enjoyed it as much as we did. Great place to relax. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent choice of food throughout the resort. Will definitely return again.
Fantastic & friendly hotel
Stayed for 11 nights. Booked a poolside room. Experience was fantastic. Very friendly, attentive service from all Cornelia De Luxe employees - especially the Spa Team and Guest Relations Team.
Food was of a high quality, each of the A La Carte restaurants were good experiences. Best for us was Sofa (French) and Tai Pen (Asian).
For an all-inclusive resort, drinks were of a high quality. Lots of choice, a full cocktail bar and table service. Resort entertainment was great, some fab shows - Michael Jackson, etc. Many shows feature over 20 dancers! Other entertainment included foam parties, beach parties, pier parties etc.
The whole complex was really clean, tidy and safe. We would definitely recommend and stay again in the future.
“Fantastic 5* Hotel..!!!”
Having stayed in many hotels this is the best yet. From cleanliness, service, food and the standard of accommodation we could not fault it. We stayed in a swim up suite and it felt like a tranquil piece of heaven. I'm sure the success of this hotel is down to the staff they are sooo friendly and could not do enough for us.
Absolutely loved it and would go back without hesitation. Thank you Cornelia Deluxe.

“First Holiday Together”
Lovely resort with excellent all-round service with nice restaurants , highly recommended , you must try the junior swim up suite. Excellent breakfasts in the Hedera Restaurant. Excellent staff throughout the hotel with attention to detail is 2nd to none. Will definitely return....
Beautiful hotel. Very friendly staff. This is an all inclusive hotel and drinks are served till late hours. Food is fantastic, Italian a la carte restaurant was excellent. All Golf courses are within approx 20 minutes and the shuttle runs every 30 minutes door to door.

It was our first time to the hotel and we can understand why people return year after year as we found the staff very polite and courteous, the swim up rooms are amazing which were cleaned every day. The food in the main restaurant was generally very good with plenty of choices.
We were 4 couples where the men played golf every morning and the ladies enjoyed themselves plenty of spa and sun. Tried many of ala carte restaurants - and can recommend everyone. The very best was enough anyway honorable, both with fantastic food but also surroundings.
Incredibly good service everywhere. If you want a max stay, so choose a junior suite.

“A golf holiday to remember”
Our 7 nights here was great. Good food, great staff and clean pools. We loved it !!! The very best place for a couple and golf trip. This was the 4th time that we vent to Belek for golf and sun, and Cornelia De Luxe is by far the best experiens.

What a fantastic holiday The hotel was excellent, with very good attention to detail. The staff were very accommodating. Friendly and attentive. There were more bars and resteraunts than I could imagine, with a good choice of food and drinks.
Which I will add were branded drinks. The pools were always kept clean and well presented, and there wasn't a blade of grass or hedge untrimmed anywhere in the resort. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends, and will be comming back in the future.
