Another amazing holiday *****
Our third say and yet again amazing. We requested connecting rooms we received exactly that on the 4th floor with outstanding views. The staff cannot do enough for you and the food is beautiful. It's a great experience of luxury and such an amazing hotel.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Been several AI hotels but the Cornelia deluxe trumps them all. Absolutely first class from front desk to beach bar, superb staff and tremendous facilities make this hotel and I would highly recommend .

What an amazing hotel this is
Staff are fabulous
Animation team superb (big thanks to Sasha)
Food what can I say unbelievable - plenty of choice, always hot and very tasty
Italian restaurant is a must and so worth the 10 euros each - barbeque was fantastic and part of your all inclusive (We didn't try the othets)
We are not big drinkers but tried the cocktails which were fab too (good strength)
Hotel is spotless always cleaned and the pool cleaners really take pride in their work

Excellent hotel great service, branded drinks, clean pools, toilets and rooms Excellent Al La Carte, choice of different food every night if you do wish. Great location with options of day trips, recommend Site.
All staff work so hard.Extremely friendly. We stayed in a 'swim up' room. A lot quieter in that area. So much choice of food.. Different restaurants to try if not taking advantage of the all inclusive. Too much to praise in one review. Go see for yourself! You won't be disappointed.
