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.
Hotel Karbel is located in beautiful scenery on the bottom of BabaDag mountain. Hotel is on the top of High Sreet in beautiful holiday destination - Oludeniz. Very easy access to local shops and restaurants makes this place an ideal start point for night life lovers however its not a loud place. The whole complex contains 8-9 blocks with basic but clean rooms across 3 levels. Blocks are surrounded by beautiful and well maintained gardens with exotic plants. We stayed in block 5. Room had a balcony, little TV, aircon (free of charge) and little fridge (very useful in hot summer time). Bed was very comfortable. Our room was cleaned every day. We went half board. Breakfasts were typical Turkish buffets with cheese , olives, ham and local vegetables. Although it was quite basic it was always fresh and tasty. There was always something extra to look forward like omelets, pancakes. Dinners were a real local feast. Food was always fresh and really tasty. It was always really difficult to make decision: fish or kebabs, meatballs or chicken. Barbecue nights were amazing: great party on the terrace with plenty of food to choose. Vegetarians will find Karbel very friendly as well. Lots of starters, salads, deserts are made from fresh local products. We ate outside a few times in first few days but quality of Karbel's dinners pulled us away from local restaurants. Karbel hotel is located only 10 minutes walk from the beach and 5 minutes from Dolmus (bus) station. If you looking for value for money holidays Karbel is a good choice. I hope that they are going meet my expectations this year as well!More
Loved our stay here!
We normally stay at another hotel which was full so was our first time here. We had a fab holiday. Great location close to beach, shops and bars on the doorstep but not too loud to keep us awake but then it was fairly quiet anyway as nearing end of season. Very clean rooms and friendly hotel staff.More

Another fabulous place to stay
Really enjoyed this holiday with our friends. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel, grounds, pool and restaurant where kept extremely clean. The maid was a delightful woman. Breakfast was very good, continental but with pancakes, fried eggs etc. On some days. The shopping was amazing and the shopkeepers very friendly. If you need to get more weight allowance (I bought 4 handbags, purses and t- shirts) buy some foff the Rep as it is a lot cheaper than the airport and be warned they are very strict and will fine you on the spot.
If you give reception 1 lira they will ring for a bus to take you to the beach of your choice which is then free and you can return free also. Sun beds and umbrellas are all payable. Taxis are cheap but you may have a hair raising journey. The best beach is Billy's, but Sugar Beach and Sea Horse are good too.
The food and service in the restaurants is fantastic, loved Mimosa, Billies overlooking the sea, all of them really too numerous to mention.
Loved the idea of a card to pass over the bar to get food and drinks which were put on a tab which we paid off every few days, made it so easy.
The only drawback was the music from the bar which was far too loud especially at night. We had room facing the pool and bar. Entertainment was so so.
The photographer in the hotel took some lovely photographs and was not expensive. Hairdressers by the pool, had my hair cut and was very impressed also had my nails and feet done and felt very pampered. The weather could have been better the first week but was told that it doesn't rain usually, just our luck.
All in all a delightful hotel in a good position and would certainly go back again.More

Good location, great hotel
Our first time to Turkey and pleasantly surprised. Everybody in hotel really friendly and helpful. Thomson rep very good and always in hotel.
Stayed B and B but never bothered with Breakfast as we ate on the way to the beach 5 minutes away. full breakfast Â£2.50 with real tea bags.
Seemed a bit quiet at night, maybe as it was towards the end of season, so always went out to eat and drink.
Room was good with small fridge and plenty of room. Liked the idea of the safe room off reception for extra security.
Hotel was at top end of resort away from the bars but not far from beach.
Would stay again or give the smaller Karbel Beach Hotel a try.More
Good all round Hotel
Stayed 12 - 26 October 2015, Having previously stayed here 6 years ago and enjoyed it, I thought we'd give it another go, The Hotel has divided into 2 since then The White Hotel now has the blocks we last stayed in plus what was the quiet pool.
Upon arrival we were given a room on the top floor of block 8 which was ideal facing toward the sea (no sea view) but getting all day sun on the balcony, great for drying towels etc.
A porter carried our suitcases to our room which was appreciated as most Hotels don't seem to provide this service now a days.
There are steep slopes down from the reception to the Pool and Bedroom blocks, might be hard for people with walking difficulties.
The room was twin bedded of a decent size, yes the shower is small but managable. The bed firm, every where was clean and well cared for.
Booked B&B with 1p a night upgrade to half board.
Breakfast was normal Greek fare and of a good standard and choice compared to some hotels in Turkey I've stayed in.
We decide to look at the evening meal choice and decide each day whether to stay in or eat out.
Lovely home made soup, meat choice, veggie choice, pot rice or pasta, and sweets similar choice each night, had a decent Lasagna ,chicken in sauce. didn't like any of the sweets except the apple pie and fruit flan but that's personnel choice.
Was looking forward to the Turkish night but was greatly disappointed, the 'BBQ' was served in the dining room like a normal dinner soup, salad bar chicken drumsticks, burgers and normal sweets. You then went down to the pool area to watch the entertainment Folk dancers and Belly dancer. unfortunately due to time of year there were more performers than audience, so not much atmosphere, but they gave it their all.
We found it best to eat about 8 ish as the food as the couple of time we ate at 730 the food was cold, especially bbq night.
But when you have only paid 1p there is non way you can complain.
You can get a decent bottle of wine for 40tl which was slightly cheaper than we paid in some of the local restaurants
All the staff were friendly polite and helpful, towels and bedding were changed more frequently than there stated 2 times a week.
It being toward the end of the season the hotel was very quiet, but we met and talked more to a lot of lovely people a lot of whom were repeat visitors.
Well done to Thompsons for providing a lovely friendly, bubbly rep.
I can recommend Seahorses for a day at the beach, Buzz bar for a beer watching the sun go down, Josephs, Tonoz Beach, and Del boys (Hisaranou) for a lovely meal
I will be back.More
