What makes a hotel room?

Not having stayed in a full blown 5* resort before, we were surprised at the luxuriousness of our hotel room… Its more like a stateroom compared to some of the hotels we have stayed over the years..  First impression, absolutely marvellous, Mrs W was even more excited than I was when she found the number of toiletries provided in the bathroom.

The bathroom alone was a third of the size of the whole room, walk in shower, full size bath, and to top it all, slippers and gowns… to date I have only used my tooth paste, all other toiletries provided by the Cornelia Diamond. 

The bedroom area and balcony are fantastic, the size is enormous with queen sized bed, a couch small table and chairs.  The balcony is big enough to have a party on and the view is fantastic, you are not really over looked, unless you are using binoculars, due to the shape of the hotel, but effectively everyone gets a sea view.  

We can honestly say that the room we have been provided with greatly meets all expectations of a 5* resort, along with everything the resort has provided to date. This will be a holiday to remember… 😄 
Ps. They turn down the bed at night and provide you with chocolate 😃


It’s holiday time – Belek Turkey, Cornelia Diamond Resort – Day 1

As holidays go, today although enjoyable, has been very wet from the time we stepped out of the room after donning our sun cream, sun wear and floppy hats… that was about midday.

So the enjoyable parts have been getting up for breakfast, a good gym session and Mrs W having a Hammam Turkish spa.  In true tradition to our holidays the day after arrival was wet, but we have had a good look around to get out bearings, find the a’la Carte restaurants and multitude of bars. First impressions of the hotel, absolutely fantastic. Friendly atmosphere with a mix of quiet space and people space.  The food choice is really good and plentiful, but beware, green chillies look like green beans, to the surprise of my wife… taking in a full fork full on our first night after a few beers.. if your short sighted even a little bit, take your glasses with you.

So tonight its the bar, dinner and then on to the evenings entertainment.  Below are a few shots of the hotel and views
