“Thermal treatment, and special experiences”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

But first of all, the correct name of this resort, denied by Tripadvisor, is:
Korel Thermal Resort Clinic & Spa, as this establishment is per May 2013 the only thermal spa in this region between Afyonkarahisar (or Afyon as everybody still names the town) and Kutahya which offers therapy and physical treatment and training in addition to the famous thermal water.

A huge complex accommodating 1000 persons, - in a nice garden setting inthe middle oof nowhere,- but with frequent dolmuses (minibusses) kind of shuttling to the nearby junctions for shopping, - or further on to the city of Afyonkarahisar (orginally named Afyon, but relatively short time ago renamed Afyonkarahisar as Afyon means opium, directly related to the activities in the area som time agon ,- now under controll and the production only for medical productions.

Back to the resort.
My wife and I were luckely offered a suite on one of the upper floors with wonderful view towards the garden and the charming nearby very native and small village Demircevre where we every day on our walking tours were warmly greated welcome by the villagers.......
The housekeeping turned to be an everyday diaster,- allways something not delivered, like changing of small and big towels, changing of bathrobes, refilling of coffe and tea, or glasses or cups missing/not cleaned,- and again and again experiencing that the room was not made ready untill afteroon.

The resort advertise 5-star. As a proffesional I give the hotel overall 4-star, the housekeeping 1-2 stars, but the restaurant under the successfull managmenet of Mr Hakki: definitely 5 stars or more
The resort offers half board and I travelling that much did not look forward to an everyday buffet dinner,- but my...:: what an experience !!!
WE have never experienced such a rich, tasty and artistic dinner buffet with 20 meters of meeses, equally meters or more of 20-24 different (very) sweet deserts, and 6 - 8 different main courses.
the only pity is that the owners does not allow alcohol and consider it unhealty (while smoking is still healthy ?????)
And buffet breakfast was again as coming to heaven ! Thank you Hakki !!!

Now afer returning back home we are convinced that the theram baths, followed everyday by 3 visits of 20 or more minutes was healthy, exercises,- thoug allways some irritation when jet-streams did not work, was not activated, - and water themperature often too high, - but all-in-all a good experience.

Separate thermal bathe for men and women of coursem and a huge inndoor-outdoor swimming pool.

Well,- more than enough I guess

Room Tip: We felt the lack of a balcony,- more than welcomeed when one should stay for around two weeks. Be...

I stayed there for a 5-days-long business trip. Although there was committed that bed sheet would be changed every other day, it wouldn't. Hand towels weren't supplied until 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Glasses in the open-buffet restaurant seemed to be unwashed. Varieties of meals and desserts were sufficient and usually delicious. The lobby and the rooms are big enough. Other facilities of the hotel met the expectations.

The first year that we were in this hotel was in 2008, it was open for just a few months. It was really fantastic, super clean, super nice personnel and the meals were also fantastic. But in 2011 we went there it was terrible. The pools were dirty and the personnel was changed for inexperienced personnel. Why do hotel loose there stars inside after a few years??

it was better than i expected reading all the reveiws i thought it would be a bit of a dump with rude staff but quite the oppposite we arrived very early in the morning 6.30am to be exact and we were accomadated imediatly no fuss the room was massive clean and fitted out with all the right stuff, the resturant had an unbelivable selction and is big. the spa is wonderful and the thermal water was hot as expected.
although there were a few faults the pool water was cold i have no idea why i was told it was regulated to be just right but i found it a bit nippy for me and the kids.
also the sound insulation is a little poor but i sleep well so it wasnt a problem for me
room service is good but a little on the slow side, but it is a big hotel
and finally the room being cleaned was a bit delayed i had to call them on three separate occations to have it done but it was done imaculatly when she came.
its close to a place called affium only a bus ride away and afyon itself is close its nice to have ladys and gents separate if you want, so its not the best but it wasnt bad either.

I stayed at this hotel 4 times in March and April 2011 for business. each trip was taken 6 days.

Their meeting arrangements, rooms (for 100 people for each) service and staff were really good and helpfull. But unfortunately this is not my point.

Hotel is really big and its spa is quite good. breakfasts, lunches and dinners are serving as an open buffet form and were delicious.
They upgraded my room which is quite big and they changed bathrobes everyday.

Rest of these opinions are really bad. Comfortability, food quality, meeting organization quality is not enough to evaluate a hotel. THE GUESTS! Guests are covered which is not normal because they were wearing black chador. This means these people are coming from special religios orders. Hotel is arranging special pray times at the weekends for them. They have a lot of children and were running in the restaurant. every time I saw them and also this hotel is not serving alcohol and if you ask why they say for healthy reasons:)

It's your choice:)

Room Tip: internet access is very weak for corner suites

It started with the reception staff being rude, arrogant and unfriendly. Then they gave us a wrong room, which we had to change. The next room was horrible. A/c nit working, dirty carpet and a absolutely filthy bathroom. Room service was unacceptable. Plus they don't serve alcohol in this hotel and all their guest were covered, which made me feel out of place.

That is my second visit for business purposes. The Elmas Restaurant in this hotel offers very good and high quality meals every time. However, I was disappointed with the sound insulation of the rooms. You might change a lot of rooms if you are bothered of families with crying babies that are at high levels in this hotel.
