Our May vacation in Turkey: Commodore Elite Sites and Spa

Having successfully stayed for the first time in Turkish hotels we’ve decided to continue our holiday there and have planned to visit the next hotel on our trip in May 2012.

I didn’t like the Lara region, so I’ve decided that it’s time to see new places.
So I’ve chosen Side, where I’ve liked the promenade along the sea.

I’ve chosen the hotel for a long time and risked to stay at the Commodore Elite Sites and Spa.
Why it was risky because the hotel was not completed yet when I booked it 🙂

After reading a lot of information that Turkish builders know how to build quickly and efficiently, settled in the German forum, where the opening of the hotel was awaited by its German guests.

When we’ve arrived in May the hotel was fully completed and ready to accomodate the guests.

Strengths of the hotel:

– a pleasant room of 32m2 with good beds, interesting interior and wash basin in the room, behind the wall 🙂

– a comfortable balcony with a net from insects (I love them in hotels, although for some reason I don’t often meet them)

– very good food (especially for dinner), quality cooked and interesting served

– excellent service and cleaning

– there is a pastry shop

– a pleasant main restaurant with outdoor and indoor venues

– not bad SPA with saunas, steam room and hammam

– good location with promenade, convenient to get to Side

adults only concept

Hotel weaknesses:

– a small area of hotel, you can even say that it is not territory at all

– very weak a la-carte restaurants (the dishes were so tasteless unlike the main restaurant)

– tidy small territory of beach, situated between other beaches on the coast

– not good alcoholic choice with locally produced drinks

– noise in the room

Well, about our favorite – about the sea.
Oh, what can I say, but for us it is not a sea at all 🙂

Very shallow, very long, constantly muddy water mixed with sand from the bottom 🙁
It is impossible to dive, and even not necessary at all.
This option is for lovers of shallow and well-warmed sea.

It seemed to me that the hotel is just perfect for a holiday not in the high season, when a large area is not needed, but long walks and a quickly warmed sea are valuable.
