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.

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

Perfectly suitable

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

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


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
