Great Holiday with group of 21-28 year olds - Cornelia Diamond Resort, Belek, Turkey
We had a great holiday at the Cornelia Diamond Resort! Upon arrival we were upgraded to a Villa, which meant our group could all stay in the Villa together instead of 3 separate rooms. The Villa was outstanding and made our holiday better than we could have ever imagined!
The staff, facilities, food, etc. were all excellent - could not have asked for better!

Fantastic overall break
Checking in at Gatwick for the flight with Pegasus airlines was not a fantastic experience, the check in desk was very late to open which meant you didn't have much time to relax before the flight and the information was not very forthcoming, when I asked what time check in was due to open I was given an abrupt reply of "I will open it when we are ready as we don't get paid to open it yet" this kind of answer is not helpful or professional.( it appeared that Pegasus airlines was not popular amongst the airport staff)
The transfer to the hotel was OK (home bound transfer was a dreadful the bus broke down) and the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful (considering it was 2am)
The room was a standard room and was fantastic, very clean and spacious.The room maids were very friendly,considerate and thorough.
The hotel is a large hotel on the beach and as we had left our children at home we were keen to avoid others people's children and the jetty provided a great place to relax and enjoy the sea breeze.
The main restaurant was a hectic place at meal times, lots of the guests were from Russia and they are not keen on queuing, so you have to adapt very quickly which I found quite amusing although some may find it intimidating.
The al la carte restaurants were very good and worth the token fee charged
The hotel has its own Faldo designed golf course (3 nines) which I played on several occasions and met some very pleasant people from all over Europe, rather than playing on my own. The early bird deal before 7am was €32.50 + buggy or trolley.(you will not be disappointed with these courses)
We didn't actually see a rep from Thomas cook which didn't bother us.
The hotel had something for every type of guest young and old.

Fantastic holiday from start to finish. Hotel, Food, Staff, Accommodation everything first class. A la carte restaurants really good. It also had an adult only area around the pool which was a very good idea. Only negative was we only went for 7 nights. Def longer next time. Golf was really good to.

A vry good hotel with excellent choice of food. Booking the restaurants was not very easy on the telephone system and often had to contact Customer Relations who were not very helpful. Having booked the last two weeks of September your brochure should have stated that the entertainment was scaled down from the last week of September for the winter season. This was not clear when booking. It was a shame as enjoyed the party entertainment and fireworks on the first week but the second week was extremely lame.

True All Inclusive
We were so happy at the Cornelia Diamond, it is so well kept and very comfortable.
The staf were helpful and spoke great english. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped with the exception of a kettle, but a call to service and they will supply one.
The grounds are Huge and perfectly maintained beautifully landscaped.
If your lucky enough to have a swim up suit or diamond you have access to pools almost to your selfs !

Cant wait for our next visit
It was our second holiday at the Cornelia Diamond and we think its spoilt us for all future holidays in Turkey. Its a fantastic hotel and we are already planning a trip next year. The only criticism we would make is that we would prefer to have a bottle of wine served with our dinner rather than wait for a waiter to top up our glasses. The service this year was a little slower in both the Dome Bar and Diamond Restaurant but it didnt mar our enjoyment.
