Cornelia De Luxe Resort
Ranked #19 of 93 Hotels in Belek
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We have just returned from Cornelia Deluxe as a party of 6, we stayed in the swim up rooms which were amazing, if I ever returned I would 100% book these rooms again. The swim up rooms had its own bar and restaurant with a lovely shaded area at 5pm to enjoy a drink and swim after basking in 40 degrees heat all day. During the day we laid around the main pool with the water slides but you do need to get your towels down by 8am.

The first week was full of rude Russians but by the second week we felt much more at home as lots more English arrived. The main buffet restaurant is just ok ( the food is amazing ) but we didn't actually like the restaurant which felt very canteen style. The a la carte restaurants are 10 euros per person and worth every single penny and a lot more! The food was second to none, in the Taipen, florian and French restaurant . We ate lunch in the daphne bar by the pool which had something for everyone and jacket potatoes and snacks at 4pm.

Lots of international drinks but terrible wine!

My negatives are the entertainment - the shows each night were very good but didn't start till 9.30, then at 10.30pm a live band which were shocking each night and did not play hardly any English music. I would have preferred music in the bars as they lacked any atmosphere.

The beach was very unappealing and the location meant no shops or anything nearby.

The animation team are the worst I have experienced on a package holiday and there was nothing for my 10year to participate in unless he wanted to run around with 4 year olds.

Lastly some of the staff need to smile and be more friendly.

In a nutshell a great holiday but the swim up room is a must !

The quality of the hotel grounds, the food in the buffets, the a la cartes, the facilities, the options for activities/spas within the hotel were, quite frankly, simply the best I've ever had at this budget range when comparing to other popular all inclusive world areas such as Mexico (some say the home of the best AI - well this hotel easily beats some of the ones I have been to there).

The staff cannot do enough for you and the service is great. The a la cartes come at a slight charge but 100% worth it - we ate at 5 different restaurants over 7 nights. It would have been 7out of 7 but our first night we landed too late and the other we decided to party and skip dinner due to a large lunch.
Which brings us onto the buffet. Nothing to say here other than fresh, hot, great standard, and even the fussiest of eaters would struggle to complain here. Fantastic for lunch and breakfast, and of course dinner should you not go for the a la carte.

If you can book a swim up room DO IT,,,,,,!!!!! It is definitely worth having your room away at a separate part of the hotel with its own little breaky buffet and lagoon style pools outside your room. We actually got upgraded due to my gf birthday. - like I say the service is simply excellent and if they can upgrade or please you in any way they will. The difference in having your room on 3 levels was incredible.
Plenty of sun beds and pools to enjoy. Plenty of bars. Great top name spirits in the package.
If you like particular areas of the pool you will have to get up and put your towels out before 10 but if you aren't fussed then there are always options.
We did the Turkish massage at the hotel and it was superb. Set our skin off perfectly for a weeks tanning action.

Great mix of couples famililies, but not totally family orientated therefore great for couples too.

I could go on and on but I won't. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great all inc resort where the pools are brilliant the food is fantastic (small surcharge for the a la cartes but worth it) the entertainment is decent, great facilities inside the hotel (gym spa etc) good options for trips out the hotel but all you need is there for a relaxing week.

Room Tip: Email before holiday and ask for possible upgrade. If they have one they will give it to you I'm...

I went to the Cornelia De Luxe with my boyfriend this August for my birthday. The hotel upgraded us to a beautiful swim up room, where the pool was 8 steps from the bed ( I counted!). Room service and mini bar were both free so we took full advantage of these! The main pool was a bit livelier so we spent most days there enjoying the all inclusive drinks. The service was absolutely brilliant and all the staff were super friendly. Food in the main restaurant was great but for 10€ each, we ate in the a la cartes most nights. French restaurant even surprised me with a birthday cake and champagne. Florian restaurant was absolutely incredible and so was Tai Pen! Personal favourite was the Hedera restaurant right next to the pool with the best calimari I've ever had!! Would recommend this resort for couples and families alike. Could not fault a single thing for the entire holiday!! Loved it!!

We previously reviewed this Hotel in 2012 when we first stayed. We made some great friends last time around so 9 of us (3 families) decided to hold a reunion and all booked up together. Unbelievably, whilst out there we ran into 3 further couples who were also there in 2012 - This just says its all.

There have been a few subtle improvements to the Hotel since our last stay. The Beach area & bar has been developed and looks great. The evening entertainment has greatly improved and there's a couple of minor touches such as a Kettle & hot drinks now available in your room.

It was good to see a few old faces still at the Cornelia and special mention to Huseyn at the Hedera who worked tirelessly to look after our party (which increased to 15 during our stay) and Hakkan at Daphne bar.
Dervya (Guest Relations) - Who could do enough for us and sorted out any problems we had and co-ordinated table arrangements for 15 at the A la carte restaurants, which was no easy feat.

The entertainments team are fantastic aswell and Sanchez, Bodan & Hakkan kept our party busy over the 2 weeks and deserve a mention. [These guys work hard and whilst some people don't want to partake in activities, its worth noting that by doing so, you meet more people/friends!!!]

Like any of the good hotels in Turkey, there's a lot of Russians but this time around, there was as many English staying, which made Gala night interesting!

I've seen other reviews commenting about sunbeds. Yes during peak times its going to be busy and some of the favoured spots will get snapped up at 7am. We ventured down 8-9am and always managed to get some, don't get me wrong you may struggle between 11-12. Like other Hotels we witnessed sunbeds being reserved and no one showing up, which is frustrating. We tended to stay down by the main pool & get involved with the activities, wander down the beach and then retreat back to the swim up rooms at 4ish.

Only negatives (and I'm scraping the barrel here):-
Showers/Bath in the swim up rooms - They are in need of refurbishment given that this is a 5star hotel and we had drainage issues which took 3 attempts to address. Thankfully had translation apps on phone & ipad which helped!
Sofa Restaurant - Aircon needs to be improved as Centre table is perfect but the outer seating positions closest to the window do not receive cold air, which can affect the enjoyment of your meal. We dined here twice during our stay and on both occasions 2 of our party had to leave early. Food is incredible though !

Would we comeback again, most definitely......see you in 2016 Cornelia !!!!

This was our second trip to the Cornelia De Luxe Resort (my wife and I together with our 8 year old daughter), recently returned from a 2 week trip 2nd -16th Aug 2014.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by the reception staff, who remembered us from our previous visit last year! We had a side-sea view room which was a good size and very clean.

The quality of the food in the main dining room was both varied and of high quality with "theme" nights during the week; this coupled with the range of specialty restaurants meant that we were never without several options for great food.

The pools were large and varied, with ample sunbeds, which led to a feeling of space without overcrowding.

The evening entertainment was of a high professional standard - ranging from the Moscow State Children's Circus, specialty dance troops and variety acts.

The children's animation team were excellent and made our daughter feel both special and comfortable - nothing was too much trouble for them. There was a range of activities through the day and then a mini disco on an evening.

The quality of service was exceptional and the hotel was immaculate - we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and will be returning in the future!

Excellent hotel, well serviced. Swim up room was great with close proximity to pool, and one of the restaurants (Hedera) where you could snack all day. A la carte restaurants were excellent but you pay more for these (10 euros each). Quality drinks supplied all day. Staff generally efficient but could smile a bit more !! Rooms well serviced with good products for you to use which were replaced daily. Well stocked mini-bar. The pattiserie was great - too many slices of cake ! Lots of Russians in the hotel so be prepared to flex your elbows in the food queues.
Only downside lies with tour operator - could not get an extension on room till later in the day. Thomsons fly home earlier in the evening will you please. Arriving in Glasgow at 3 in the morning reduces the benefit of the holiday . Would we return - yes.

Room Tip: Look for swim-up rooms if you want easy access to relaxing at the pool

WOW ! if your looking for a great holiday in turkey this could be it.
Beautiful modern hotel set in lovely well kept grounds.
6 pools some of which are infinity sit along side the more energetic family and slide pools(nice size for all ages and well managed) and there are plenty of sunbeds even after 10am, towels available from 8am and you can have 2 each. Beach is sandy with a huge covered area for the kids and a pier to either sunbath on or sit in the shade.
The staff are not only polite but eager to please and it showed in the service they delivered.
The food in hotels in Turkey is extremely good in general however the Cornelia De luxe raised the bar even higher. Themed nights delivering a fabulous selection of sea food (inc lobster) steaks, roasts of all types and mouth watering deserts.
The a la carte restaurants felt like just an excuse to dress up and we visited several during our wonderful stay, you pay a 10 euro PP charge for these and once again amazing food.
The entertainment was also very good and an enormous amount of time and energies went into the organisation each evening, children's first followed by adults through to 12pm. They have a disco on site in the evening or you can relax in one of the outside bars or the air conditioned indoor areas. We only discovered the "Celestine" bar on the last night which is beautiful in really worth a visit.
Unlike some hotels we have stayed in the Cornelia serves premium branded alcohol! J walker red and black label and Jack Daniels to name just of a few.
OK ! I`ve been through the good stuff now just a couple of "could do better".
We were late flyers on day of departure and required a late check out. We were told on day of arrival that they had no visibility until the day of departure and that we would have to ask at reception then. I arrived at reception at 7.30 to be told that there were no late check outs available and that we couldn't even book a 1 hour slot in a courtesy room to change for our flight as they were already full? Poor communication and not what expected from a 5# hotel. As they know that they have guests leaving they should really have facilities free, we were happy to pay however no joy.
In the end we used the excellent spa facilities however as you can imagine this was not ideal for the lady of the house.
So there you have it, fantastic hotel great facilities and customer service and very relaxing.
I`m looking to book our holiday for next year today! would I go back there? Defiantly, however I`ll be booking a day flight and not relying on a late checkout.
