The Commadore is a five star hotel having to operate under circumstances no other 5 star hotel I know has to contend with. They get in water but when it runs out they have to use water the rest of gazans have to drink which is briny and salty. Air con operates when there is power or when there is fuel for the deisel generators (Israelis bombed the power station.) You can watch people swimming in the sea from the window of your room but you know they are swimming in raw sewrage as Israel bombed the sewrage treatment plant and now the sewrage from all of Gaza is pumped raw into the sea. The staff who work there are professional and the service is good. The rooms are large and clean, the bathroom great. I hope one day that the Commadore will be able to be the 5 star operation it is built to be.
