This hotel’s postcode takes in the local beach plus a range of bars, shops and restaurants.
Location-wise, this place is spot on. It’s at the quiet end of Olu Deniz but two minutes out the door and you’re on the short stretch of shops, bars and restaurants that take you down to the sand-and-shingle beach.
There’s a pool each for adults and children, with a bar right next to it, and the restaurant is close by serving up buffet and à la carte meals.
The outdoor pool comes with a spacious sun terrace aligned with sunloungers and parasols for that bit of shade. Views of the mountains edge and the pool bar with its large selection of drinks and light bites all add to the relaxed atmosphere.
These double rooms come with a warm and inviting colour scheme and can sleep up to three. They come with a double bed and a camp bed or sofa-bed that's suitable for a child up to 12 years. There's a balcony or terrace for that bit of outside space.
These twin rooms come with a warm and inviting colour scheme and can sleep up to three. They come with twin beds and a camp bed or sofa-bed that's suitable for a child up to 12 years. There's a balcony or terrace for that bit of outside space.

We knew when booking this was rated as a three star but we were thrilled with what we got for what was in effect a cheapish last minute deal!
The staff are brilliant and the location fantastic! We met couples that go to this hotel every year and it was quick to see why. Very clean comfortable rooms and staff that are very willing to help you. The buffet could do with a little more variety but it's so cheap to dine out at the great restaurants In olu Deniz that this wasn't a problem for us. Would definitely recommend.More
Great Hotel and Holiday
This was my 2nd visit to Karbel Hotel and have just booked a 3rd! I originally stayed at the Karbel in 2013 with a Friend. As this was my first visit to Turkey I didn't know what to expect after reading some reviews about the location and the hotel. I was extremely surprised upon arrival at the hotel. We arrived early hours of the morning and was shown to our room within 5 minutes and received help with our luggage. When we woke up the following morning we went for breakfast and I must admit this is the only thing that lets the hotel down slightly. I enjoyed my stay so much that as soon as I arrived back home I told another friend about it and we booked to return in June 2014. Again we arrived early hours and received the same treatment as my previous visit. The breakfast was still pretty average so we didn't bother eating at the hotel for most of our 10 day stay. The hotel card service (rather than cash or credit card) works well however its very easy to run up a huge bill throughout your stay, so I would recommend settling the bill at the end of each day.
All staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They all work very hard and sometimes have to deal with very difficult people. This is hard to watch at times considering you will see the same staff at 7am that you saw when you went to bed at 3am!
The strip its self is lively at night, quite a few bars and the odd club along the seafront. Most bars have dancing and music as the night goes on. Again all staff work very hard and never seem to have a day off.
I do recommend Shadows bar, although its not everyone's cup of tea the odd night here is a must. I wouldn't recommend the food here but its a great place for a drink or five and some dancing and very silly entertainment.
Day trips are offered at various prices from a number of vendors on the strip, so shop around until you find a good price. I would recommend Dalyan as a good day trip, its very relaxing and food is included.
All in all I think the Karbel and Oludeniz are the perfect location for a holiday. It caters for most people but if you are looking for a clubbing holiday this will not be for you.
I am overly excited about returning in July 2015 :)More

Very good Hotel
Great hotel for a holiday base been to this hotel 3 times now always busy . Rooms a nice and clean and tidy . The hotel is on the main strip and close to lots of things . The pool in this hotel is good but they do have people that like to put towels down early so this issue needs more addressing and it's the English that do it lol . Breakfast is good overall and there food is nice . I would come back and stay at this hotel if I went to oul again More
Stayed in Olu Deniz many times, will never stay at this hotel again though
I haven't really got anything positive to say about this hotel, except the restaurant staff were lovely and friendly. On arrival and after I had booked in, I asked for a safe, the receptionist told me to either wait or come back in the morning as she was very busy. The room was basic, first floor, end of a block, but as I arrived at night I couldn't see out the window and hadn't much idea of the view that was going to greet me. Initially opening the curtains it looked as though I had a wall to look at and I wasn't disappointed the next morning, I had a large concrete wall to look at, I couldn't see above it or around it, couldn't even really see any sky.
My first night I was woken at 3 am and kept awake until 5.30 by a party outside my door, on the balcony area along the block my room was and in the rooms opposite. Despite guests asking the party to be quiet and staff asking the guests to be quiet, the party carried on and the hotel security didn't really do much about it. On seeing the Thomson rep the next morning I was informed there had been lots of complaints about the noise and was told that a group of University students was staying in the block I was staying, about 80 students. I asked to move rooms and was informed that as everyone else in that area had also asked to move rooms, there were no more available. I was told that the hotel had spoken to the teacher and the teacher had told the students to be more considerate. I took the complaint further in Thomsons and eventually was moved to "the only room left in the hotel". I was moved into a dark dungeon room. Having wasted my first day trying to sort out a room, I accepted the room. By now it was evening, I got into the shower, the shower tap came off in my hand mid shower as I was adjusting the heat. This was fixed more or less straight away, so one positive. It is a noisy hotel, I likened it to staying in Colditz because of the blocks and concrete walls for views. I spoke to lots of guests while I was there, none of them were really happy about being there, the Thomson Rep had a queue most day of people complaining from what I observed. One guest informed me he and his wife had moved rooms 3 times and that they took Piritin each night to knock themselves out so they couldn't hear the noise.
Food in the restaurant was basic kept warm food.
I used the hotel to just sleep in and take breakfast in the end and went out each day as soon as I could. I used another hotels facilities and pool area where my friend was staying, a much nicer hotel.
If I was offered a free holiday at this hotel, I wouldn;t go.More
