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 2 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.

Very Nice Hotel.

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Karbel and had a great time. We were lower level in Block nine in a double room. Room good Balcony small but how much time do you spend there. The fridge is useful for keeping your water cool. We found the beds really comfortable. Pool great with plenty of sun beds. Breakfast very samey but have always found that in Turkey. We upgraded to HB for 14p each only eat in the hotel twice as we like to eat out but on both occasion's the food was very nice. The card payment system works well and we had no problem with this. Evening entertainment different dance acts not brilliant. Good location just away from the bars and restaurants . Staff all friendly particularly Mustapha and reception staff. Sue the Thomson Rep was brilliant very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for her. Met some great people and there seemed to be a lovely friendly hotel. Had a great time here and would recommend this Hotel.More

3rd visit

This was our third visit and this hotel is really starting to up its game. We were fortunate to be in a refurbished room block 5. It was nice and quiet and we had no problem sleeping, however the beds are quite firm and may not suit everybody. We did hear a whisper that mattresses are to be changed for next season. If you are a great fan of the internet the Wifi was not that great but lets face it. you are on holiday and really should put those phones away! Breakfast was much improved and although we did not eat at the hotel in the evening the menu looked good and was very reasonable. If you want a good clean base to explore the area this is the place to be. .All staff very friendly and Sue the Thomson rep was very helpful. . .The hotel does not provide pool towels but that is reflected in the price ,also towels in room changed every third day along with change of bed linen .Do not expect to be entertained each evening, although there are guest acts that come in .again a reflection on the price. If you want it all pay double and go elsewhere you will not be disappointed with the Karbel it does what it says on the tin. Would recommend anytimeMore

Great Hotel

Great hotel, great staff. Just returned from our 5th stay. Hotel in good position, at top of road so quieter but not far to walk to beach. Not far from Blue Lagoon. Regular dolmus to Hisaronu and Fethiye.More

Good time had by all

Room was nice and a nice lady made our towels into lovely swans a couple of times. Staff where always attentive to my husband and me. my husband especially enjoyed the hairdressers where he had a lovely shave and massage.Food was good and a nice variety was available for the fortnight we were there. Also there where nights of entertainment which were great fun.Wouldn't hesitate in going backMore


Amazing Holiday!!!!

We were a little anxious before we came as to what the hotel was going to be like after reading some of the bad reviews, but we were more than pleasantly surprised by the karbel! First impressions as we walked in were great - nice reception/lobby area and a warm welcome. We had emailed beforehand to request a top floor room with a sea view and that is what we got! Good size room with TV, a fridge and free air con. Pool area was nice and never had any problems securing sunbeds even when we didn't go round the pool until afternoon. Couldnt ask for a better location for us! Right at the top of the strip but not too close so that it becomes noisy from the bars. Takes about 5 minutes to walk to the beach. Also the food at the hotel was lovely, we were half board and found that there was plenty of choice. Would definitely recommend paragliding!!! An experience which me and my partner will never forget - completely amazing! Also some lovely places to eat were cafe bistro and buzz bar - absolutely gorgeous food (especially the marshmallow waffle in buzz bar!!!). We had a walk down to the blue lagoon and although its lovely it has the potential to be so much more! It was kind of like sardines in a tin with all the sunbeds packed onto the beaches there which spoils it. Was also crazy busy so not for us unfortunately! Another thing to recommend is Fethiye market on Tuesdays! Its absolutely huge and boiling hot but can get some great bargains! Clothes, bags, watches etc etc etc. Overall an amazing holiday in Olu Deniz, would 100% recommend this resort and hotel!!!!!!More
