5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

This was our 2nd visit (2 weeks this time) and was just as memorable as the first. Everything is first class, staff, food, room quality is just excellent. I would like to mention Ali (pool bar) who works so hard all the time, and the pool side waitresses would never let you have an empty glass for too long and would always remember what you drank. A couple of the waiters still favour the Germans but was only a minor irritation.

My only issue was the dress code for the evening, it was a case of anything goes, last year everyone made an effort but being the World Cup, football attire seemed acceptable and in a 5 star hotel sometimes felt more like dining in a cafe, that said most people did dress smartly.

And yes we are off to book again for next year.

Me and my friend stayed here 28th June for one week.Everything is absolutely perfect.We just had a normal room, which was very large and very contemporary. Food is very good, in fact it is a nice "chore", but sometimes very difficult to know what to choose because there is so much choice.Everywhere is spotlessly clean.I could go on and on, but most of my thoughts have already been said in previous reviews. I did particularly like the little extra touches, like ice cold flanels being given out at the beach, as well as cold drinks, and fruit. These little extras are what sets this hotel apart from similar ones.

All the staff were friendly and smiley, but I must give a special mention to Fatima who was the waitress outside in the pool bar every evening. We had our glasses filled immediately that they were empty, and she remembered our order.

I was hoping to return to the Commodore in October, with my husband ,but it is already full for the dates we want, so will have to wait untill next year now.

This was our 2nd visit here and it was just as good as the 1st. It is so very laid back and relaxed and you switch off right away. Food, cleanliness, service all excellent. I could go on and on but that says it all. My only tiny negative is pool music was poor until about 3pm when it would get a bit livelier. So really not a valid negative as you can put in headphones and listen to the music of ur choice. If ur thinking about booking this hotel do it. You won't be disappointed. I have already booked again for next year as I can't find anything to match it and the fact that it's over 18's makes it all the better.

we stayed 13th june for 2 weeks when you drive up to the hotel it is a little bit underwhelming as the hotel has very little kerb appeal and it is surrounded by some striking hotels but once inside it is a very different story ,checkin was very simple and quick and the reception staff were very welcoming and offered us any drink of our choice ,we went to our rooms 6506 and 6508 on the top floor facing towards the mountains not the sea which was fine ,the rooms are lovely and the walkin shower is great the cleaners keep rooms and hotel spotless,we stayed in an adult only hotel just along the coast last year and it was very good but this hotel is just a cut above with some special touches the food was outstanding there is a bistro where you can get food and drink 24 hours a day so what ever time you get to the hotel you can get something to eat and drink we tried the italian al la carte and it was very good ,on our first day we went to the beach as there were no sunbeds free they have a very nice beach bar on the beach which serves a good lunch to i am quite an early riser and went for a swim at 7am a couple of times so i did put our towels on sunbeds before we went to breakfast so we could have 4 together but if you just need 2 there are some around most of the time the entertainment is a bit strange the stage shows are mostly very good but the dj performance is awful the only english music he played was about 20 years old which was strange because in the day around the pool they played very good current music also the live bands are quite good ,on the whole the waiters are good a few are better than others but if you are friendly they will be to and some speak ok English our first week it was mostly German guests but in the second week there were a few more English people it was nice to hear English voices lots of places to have a drink piano bar has the best drinks pool bar is very dark for some reason but it gets very busy at night so there is a good atmosphere ,there are lots of shops a long the end of the road with all the usual stuff
the cafe and ice cream parlour in this hotel is amazing also the shopkeepers in the hotel are very friendly ,only used spa on check out day to shower and change so cant comment on this ,the hair and beauty salon is always busy so i think it is good i could go on and on about how good this hotel is but the fact that we can wait to go back says it all see you soon xxxx

Room Tip: Book a sea view room for fantastic views of hotel grounds and beach

For the past 14 years our main holiday has been in Dubai and we have got used to 5* star hotels and unfortunately have judged our second holiday of the year on Dubai standards but the Commodore Elite surprised us as we expected a 3 or 4 star but the Commodore Elite was far more than that and the staff were lovely and helpful although sometimes they struggled with the English language as most of the guests are German but we did not find this a problem. I would say do not get a room on -01 floor as it can be a little down in the pits feeling but in all fairness the staff at reception did offer to change us to a higher floor the following day but we declined as we felt we would not be in the room long enough for it to be a problem. For an all inclusive I was presently surprised the quantity and quality of the food and the waitress service with drinks was superb. All in all a good holiday

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor

We stayed there for the 2nd time between May 11th and 25th 2014 following our initial visit for a week in May 2013. On walking in on arrival, we noticed that everything was still as pristine as it was when we first came, as was the friendly welcome from the reception staff who immediately ordered us a drink whilst we were checked in. It was also impressive to note that they knew we were returning guests. This time we had booked one of the pool rooms and were allocated no.5000. We were shown to our room and again noted that everything was as good as we had remembered it, however an added bonus of this type of room meant we had a large patio area with sun beds, umbrella and furniture and access to our own private pool. For information, room 5000 has probably the biggest patio area and enjoys full sunshine between noon and 16:00.
Over the course of the next two weeks, we experienced fantastic food, drinks, service and cleanliness which cannot be beaten anywhere else in our wide experience of hotels and holiday resorts.
The Dolmus into Manavgat and Side were quick, frequent and very reasonably priced (TL3 per person each way).
The staff in the hotel, be it in the restaurant, piano bar, pool bar, beach bar, ice cream bar or either of the two A la carte restaurants (which were truly superb), were extremely friendly and helpful and they all seemed to enjoy speaking English with us. Special mention must go to the following staff who should all be mentioned in dispatches for outstanding customer care :-

Ahmet Taskaya, Erkan Tas, Nuri Bulbul and Salim Akbash

Ilal, Umit, Tulay and Gulsum, Sakan (and his amazing cocktail stirrer art) and not forgetting Omar the 'luvvly Jubbly' trainee barman.

I even had a chat one evening with the Top manager of the hotel (I assume he is Engin's boss, who was always to be found chatting with guests and checking the standards of the entire hotel) and told him that we would be interested in returning next year, hopeful booking one of the Jacuzzi rooms, and I also promised him a glowing review on Trip Advisor!

Everything we experienced during our two weeks in the hotel was absolutely top class, and we have had no hesitation in booking to return again. See you in May 2015

Room Tip: Room 5000 has a large patio area
