Hotel Karbel  

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.

This hotel is part of our 3T favourites range until April 2017.

Great week

I travelled to the karbel 12 years ago with my family I booked a week to relax with my friends on our annual trip and wasn't disappointed The hotel hasn't changed much over the years a few cosmetic changes but nothing drastic Lots of new staff and a couple of very familiar faces from all those years ago The rooms were very clean and air conditioning free and can be a God send especially when getting ready The cleaners are very friendly and always let onto you each morning and early evening around the grounds There's a bar area but not much going on in it the chairs are pretty uncomfortable when eating lunch as the seat cushions are removed and your legs and back side is covered in patterns for the rest of the day The pool is large and there was lots of space needed to be cleaned more around the pool as drinks stains and people's cig dumps never seemed to get swept or mopped the food was good but lacking in choice boiled eggs ever day for breakfast apart from one day there were omletes scrambled would have made a change or even the odd fried egg Could have done with more fruit and yougart choices especially for those who like to watch what they eat The hotel us in a fantastic position with easy access to the main street beech and transport My friends absolutely loved staying here and would definatley go back again Once again I made a fantastic choice and would recommend this hotel to anyone Until next time 👍More

Basic and a bit tired but we still had a great holiday

We were very impressed with the genuine welcome and friendly staff. The lady who cleaned our room was so lovely. However, there were some issues experienced, starting with our room being dirty on arrival, with stained sheets and dirty fridge containing the previous occupant's apple and half drunk water. We were quickly taken to a new room, which we soon discovered had a broken shower. This was fixed the following day. The food choices for breakfast were quite limited. Every day, an extra choice was offered, eg scrambled eggs, fried eggs, etc. It would be great if these choices could be offered every day. The quality of jam was poor. There are no parasols outside so was not comfortable to eat outside. Tea, although very good, is served with a wooden stick. Milk is not decanted into jugs but left in cartons. The rooms are basic and dated but were comfortable with the air conditioning. The bedding was quite grey and basic, but we got used to it. The television was quite old and did not give a clear picture. Again, as we were not watching TV it was not a problem. The lobby area was not particularly cool and the seating was quite dirty. Perhaps they could choose a more forgiving colour than the pale blue they have opted for. On entering the restaurant there is a rather garish model of a waiter carrying a Christmas hat and a small and ugly chef ornament which has seen better days, with one of its hands missing. Just details, but details which if addressed could really improve the hotel. The hotel pool is large and accommodates many guests but the beds are plastic with plastic covers which are scorching in the sun. There are no towels provided. Loud music is played next to the pool which is fine if you are in party mood, but not the place to be if you want to have some quiet relaxation. It would be lovely if they could perhaps incorporate shaded areas, pagodas covered in plants, around the grounds and near the pool to offer guests areas in which to relax. Maybe some more comfortable seating. The whole area is very exposed to the sun. In the evening we opted to go out for dinner as the ambiance at the hotel was not very cosy with no tea lights on tables. It is a shame as they hotel is in a fantastic location and with a few improvements and tweaks could be lovely. We spent many hours in the lovely surroundings of the Oyster Hotel on the seafront which was so beautiful and which offered ambiance, shade and comfort. We loved the area and the location of the Karbel. Another real plus point was the Karbel cafe which is attached to the hotel. The food here is amazing! Really good, hot, tasty food. Great coffee and cakes too! More


Just right for me

Stayed here for two weeks, with family, rooms were good, really clean, great having aircon included and the fridge was great for storing water and juice. Staff were great, polite but not overbearing or trying to sell all the time which we gave had in the past. Rooms were kept spotlessly clean, maid team were fantastic. Pool area was really chilled, background music on most of day and plenty of beds available. I can't be bothered with daytime entertainment so it's perfect for me. Breakfast was good lots of variety with pancakes, omelettes etc available on certain days. Ate at pool bar and the cafe attached to the hotel which with its aircon was a fave, got some great photos and hired a go pro from photographer and hubby had many shaves at the beauty bit. Omer kept my son amused playing pool and fussball with him. Only minus was 3 to a room and the 3rd bed/sofa wasn't great for 2 weeks. Hotel in good central location, grounds are well kept, would def recommend and would def go back.More

Good location just a bit quiet

We booked this hotel as a last minute deal with Thomson, B&B with a double room for 2 weeks. The hotel is a good size and located at the back of the Main Street, which is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and you get to pass all the restaurant, bars and shops on the way which is great to see variety. The room was average size, clean, with a small balcony, and most importantly AC. Perfect room considering you spend barely any time there. The pool was large with plenty of sun loungers to choose from. The only downside is they play the same few songs on repeat every day, and there is no fun pool games or any kind of entertainment of such during the day which could be great. We were B&B and the breakfasts are more than adequate. They offer a buffet style breakfast which is based on traditional Turkish food. They serve cold meats, fruit, veg, breads, cheeses and an egg chef - pancakes, omelettes, fried eggs, scrambled eggs and boiled eggs. If you want to have a British breakfast in turkey then you can order one but it will cost extra. The hotel in the evening is quiet with not much going on other than their Turkish night which was always busy. They could offer better deals on drinks and provide a better entertainment. Overall a nice hotel, with friendly staff and in a good location for everything you need. PS the Karbel cafe situated on the Main Street is very nice, good prices, tasty food and some really nice homemade cakes, a must! More
