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.

Stayed here 3 times in 2 years. It's a great base and in an ideal location. Remember you get what you pay for so, Karbel is clean and tidy. Staff are good and on the whole polite. Omar, you are the best photographer in Olu Deniz. Room 213 has a four poster bed and is twice the size of other rooms. A big thanks to all the staff at the hotel. The Crowther FamilyMore

Summer in Olu
We arrived late at the hotel, first impressions were good,reception seemed nice. We were taken to our room, myself, my wife and daughter (11), I was a little disappointed with the size of the room, and the third bed was not even made up. However the guys who had accompanied us to the room with our luggage sprang into action and had it sorted in a few minutes. Small room aside it was fine, we were overlooking the pool area. We had read some reviews about the breakfasts not being great, I have to agree, food was OK at best. Plenty of fruit and fresh bread, but variety was lacking, it left us paying for a breakfast on several occasions rather than using the hotel. We were only B&B so I have no idea what the food in the hotel is like in the evening, except we did stay in for the BBQ night, which I have to say was fantastic. The pool is great, really spacious, and this must be the first hotel I have ever stayed in during peak summer where there were the odd free sunbed ! Pool is spacious, plenty of room for everyone, never felt too crowded. The bar staff around the pool were great, especially Mustafa, a great guy. The lunch time menu around the pool bar was pretty good, standard fare, just what you need after a hard mornings sunbathing. Overall I would recommend the hotel, our room was small, but we only slept in there, so it wasn't too much of an issue for us. The location is good, right at the start of the strip, this is where we ate out every night, some really good restaurants and bars, we never had a bad meal. We went to some of the private beaches, they have free pickup/drop off, our favourite was Billy's, though Seahorse was also very good. Overall we had a great time, the people are friendly, the weather was fantastic. August 2014, 3 adults and two children, 6 and 11.More

Bery basic. Does the job, but still somewhat Dissappointed
Stayed beginning of August very hot :), arrived in early hours, no complementary lunch pack, no water ,no local shops open and hotel bar closed. Wake up dry as sand, straight to breakfast , terrible what little choice they had involved processed slices of meat and Cheese . Chopped watermelon bread, 1 bowel of yogurt, every other day had eggs boiled or a man had a fryer and made pancakes but the que outside the door. Full English available at charge! Water was always a charge at the end of your stay aswell as all other drinks brought on premises!Although we paid we had breakfast out everyday. Personal Safe was next to reception only. Pool side fight for beds as towels put on at 0600! However, the hotel surroundings were breathtaking with the mountains and the whether perfection, grounds very pretty and tidy. Rooms very basic in need of modernisation. Lounge slow but usable wifi. Evening entertainment was 3 young english Kids dancing on stage. On day of leaving close the the time. staff loitered outside our door looking in as to hurry us along, When he came in he helped himself to our left overs what we couldn't fit in our cases, infront of us, shook my partners hand and grabbed 1 suitcase and led us out! In all Honesty expected Better but suppose you get what you pay for. More
not really to my taste
We have recently come back from staying at the Karbel Hotel Olu Deniz, we stayed at this hotel thinking that it might be better than the hotels up in Hisaronu and Ovacik but unfortunately not. We arrived at 3am in the morning and were led to a large room with very little furniture in it and a very hard double bed, everything was clean but very sparse. On waking in the morning we quickly realised that we had been put on a ground floor with no view whatsoever, no sun came near our room the whole of the 7 days of our holiday. The location of the hotel was at the top end of the strip with a goodly walk back after a day on the beach. After looking around the grounds of the Hotel we decided it would be a pointless move to try and change rooms because there would have been no benefit. The breakfast was a little repetitive and boring and the wasps ensured that you didn't stay long. Unfortunately the days on the beach were ruined by the distant sounds of the bombing of I.S. strongholds in Syria. We Have been to Olu Deniz a few times now and after this experience, I think we will leave it alone for a few years.More

Not keen on this place
I booked the Karbel as there was very little left in this resort by the time we booked. 3 Times I emailed the hotel and got no answer a few weeks before we departed. 3 times my husband phoned them to ask for rooms in a quiet area and no higher than 1st floor (as I'm asthmatic) and guess what yes they totally ignored our requests, so far so good for the lack of customer services, not impressed at all. Rooms were pretty small but fairly standard for Turkey and pretty clean, the balcony was a waste of time, not room to swing a cat. The beds were some of the worst we have ever had in Turkey, so much so that my mattress had all the springs poking through and I had too ask for it changing as it was hurting my back, so much so that slept on the very hard foam seat in the room until it was changed, however the replacement was just as bad but at least the springs weren't sticking in my lower back. The bedlinen was clean but very old as were tablecloths etc in the dining room, these are in desperate need of replacement. The accommodation blocks are very close together and it was a bit claustrophobic as far as outside space was concerned. On the plus side the breakfast was ok, typically Turkish but you could order a full English if you wanted for an extra payment. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. It was in a reasonable location and near to the 'strip' but far enough to avoid the noise of it. Would we stay there again, well no not with beds like that and the claustrophobic accommodation blocks (a bit prison like), it was also quite a large hotel and we do prefer smaller places normally.More
