5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Stayed for two weeks, hotell was great ! That buffet we got for breakfast, lunch and dinner was the best ive ever had. Friendly staff. Right on the beach, good location, you got everything you need close by and if you want more the bus station is right around the corner.

Just returned from two weeks at the Commodore Elite Hotel. Great hotel, spotlessly clean, friendly and efficient staff. Fantastic variety of food. Wonderful pools
Unfortunately the hotel next door, the Sea Shell, was having some refurbishment done which caused some noise, but finished by the time we came home today.

Wonderful situation whereby you can take a short walk across the walkway into a beautifully kept bar/restaurant owned by the hotel. Lunch here was good too, so no need to go back to the hotel mid-day. Relaxing music being played and the beach/beds/umbrellas all looked after daily. Waiters walking up and down the beach, so you don't even have to move to get a drink... what more could you ask for? Bedrooms lovely, all with huge walk-in showers, tv with sky, deposit box for valuables in each room. Fridge restocked as used. Fully inclusive and never difficult to get a drink. Waiters around constantly. Very good value for money and no kids.. bliss...............
Didn't see a Thomas Cook rep from the time we arrived until the time we were picked up to go home, although there was a telephone number to ring, which reception was happy to help with, if you wanted to book trips.
On the subject of trips, Thomas Cook recommends the company called Diana Travel and give you a leaflet of a dozen or so excursions. We booked two. They were priced in Pounds. I would recommend you take British Pounds to pay for them, as we didn't and had to pay in Euros, they converted a trip advertised at £74 (for two people) into 98 Euros..... which is thought expensive.... the second trip was priced at £26 (for two people) and we just scraped up British Pounds to pay for it. Hillmi, who was our guide on both trips was really nice.

From the hotel, you can walk down to the main road and for 1.5 Euros each, you can easily get a local bus that will take you to Side (about 3 to 4 miles down the coast) they come along every few minutes, or for the same price you can take a local bus to Mavangat and experience a great local market (Thursday) Happy holiday...

I have had the pleasure of staying in Commodore Elite several times, and have always felt warm welcome here. The service in general is outstanding! I would especially like to mention the reception staff for always being helpful and friendly, and guest relation Ahmet - perfect for his job with his professional attitude and the wellbeing of the guests as a priority in his mind.

I hope to come back to Commodore Elite again :)

Room Tip: I have tried a couple of room categories and been satisfied no matter the location of the rooms.

Cannot believe 3 people have given " terrible" as a review. Stayed for one week between 21st of March and 28th of March this year. It was our first time in Turkey (despite having travelled extensively over the last 20 years or so). We have stayed at very good hotels in the past and done several cruises, including 5*, but this was MORE than equal to any. The hotel is superb. Staff are more than helpful and polite AND always seem happy -good management perhaps! Although predominantly German guests at this time of the year there were some Brits. The Germans are always polite and never disruptive and make excellent "fellow" guests. I am sure some Brits could complain that the menu was tapered towards German taste, but it also had great International dishes and themed nights. My view; if you want a British menu go to Blackpool. Despite that I must say that biscuits for the excellent cheeses would have been nice!!! I cannot praise this hotel enough, it is not only one of the few accommodations I would return to in the world but it also allowed us to find a country we knew nothing about and would also return to without hesitation.

Room Tip: Go for a suite. We paid a reasonable upgrade and it was fantastic value for loads of extra space.

We recently stayed here with Thomas Cook holidays, firstly let me say on arrival at the hotel we firstly encountered the building site that is the entrance to the hotel a bit of a surprise as so few people on here have mentioned it,it will be ok once the large hotel that is being built is finished but I can't see it being finished before late summer, this doesn't impact on the hotel at all but it is very dusty and noisy.
As for the hotel wow! On arrival we were given a champagne welcome by the guest relations representative leading to a very relaxing check in. We were then shown to our Deluxe sea view suite definitely worth the extra supplement. The staff in this hotel are a credit to their employers they were friendly, attentive, without being intrusive, how they remember what the guests like to drink is fantastic. The food in the two dining rooms was exceptional if you leave hungry then you are hard to please, we did book tables in both restaurants we didn't enjoy either of these experiences we didn't think the quality of the food was that exceptional and the ambiance that relaxing.
The hotel cleanliness is a credit to the housekeeping staff. We did try the spa treatments and enjoyed them they were extremely relaxing they weren't cheap but then it is a five star hotel.
The outdoor pool area and pool were really nice although the pool was a little cold for a swim the indoor pool was ideal for an afternoon dip, we were disappointed to find that sun loungers were being reserved with towels and personal items from 6.30am when the hotel directory said this wasn't allowed,the hotel management needs to address this as in the summer you mustn't get a chance,we even got told by a German couple that two loungers next to them were unavailable as they were reserved although there were no towels on them.
The area that the hotel is in appears to be in a development area with a very nice promenade that goes no where Side is approximately 8.5km away and would take 1 1/2 hrs to walk to or a taxi/dolmas. We walked right out of the hotel and walked along the promenade as far as you can go and ended up at an army barracks taking the lane that runs alongside it we came to some very rough shops, then we walked along the dual carriageway which was very rough with rubbish etc the pavement although new and with beautiful Turkish carpet designs had pot holes and was very uneven and not for those with walking difficulties.
I realise that this is a hotel review and the hotel has no responsibility on the outside area but it can influence the tourist authorities to improve it as this gives a bad impression for newly arriving guests.
Overall did we enjoy our stay at this hotel? yes! would we stay here again? yes! would we recommend it? yes!
Thank you to ALL the staff at this hotel for a lovely holiday.
