We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Karbel Hotel in Olu-Deniz. We had booked a 3-star hotel because we really only want a comfortable, air-conditioned room with use of a nice swimming pool. The first impression of the hotel was good. Very clean, friendly staff with access to a lovely large swimming pool. Sadly the hotel is let down by their bedrooms. The bed was hard, very hard. One pillow, but a second was provided on request. The bed linen was changed regularly but no top sheet was provided! Instead a cotton blanket - decoratively arranged each day - was provided. The shower was functional but tiny. A real challenge if you are anything other than an average, small, woman. The air-conditioning was good and it was nice to have a balcony, albeit small. Breakfast was Turkish, sometimes with pancakes or omlettes freshly cooked. The swimming pool was lovely, very clean, and you could always get a sunbed with brolly. There was often entertainment in the evening, acrobats or dancers etc.

The location of the hotel was good. 10 minutes walk to the beach (pebble) where you could watch the paragliders land. The food down the main street was excellent and very reasonably priced. Our particular favourite was The Seahorse located along the beach front. Lovely seafood casserole.

This was a lovely relaxing holiday. I would go back to Olu-Deniz but the bedrooms at the Karbel would need to be up-graded before I return there.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor seem to be a bit dark. There are no lifts, so be prepared to use the...

We purposely booked a cheaper holiday this June on a B and B basis as we wanted to eat out and about. Knowing that the hotel was 3 stars before we went and having read some reviews on here we went with an open mind. We thought the hotel was excellent. Spotlessly clean and the most obliging staff ever nothing was ever too much trouble. The rooms are quite small but adequate. There is aircon which is must, an excellent hairdrier and a fridge all of which are extremely useful and not always offered. Yes the rooms may be a bit dated but it didnt matter. The location was quiet the gardens and scenery around gorgeous. I always book somewhere with a large pool and plenty of sun beds and this one topped the lot. You could always get a sunbed. Food at the pool bar at lunch time was good and very reasonable. The maid service was excellent. Yes towels only changed once in the week but no big deal. I loved our cleaner she really worked hard, they all do. We ate in the hotel just one evening out of 7. Big mistake. The quality of the food which the hotel produced for the price was as good as anywhere and we wish now we had taken the buy 3 nights and get one free. All in all a great hotel in a beautiful location.

Room Tip: Email the hotel they will do their best to comply with your request ie low floor etc.

We have just had a lovely week at the Karbel Hotel. The location is perfect, literally round the corner to the strip where all the bars and restaurants are, but when you're in the hotel it's quiet and peaceful, so best of both worlds. The staff are great,they work very hard and are very obliging and friendly. The rooms are fine, admittedly they are a bit dated, but clean. The shower was very basic and sometimes there was no hot water, bath towels were only changed once during our week there. Air conditioning was good in our room. Pool bar was great, I recommend the tuna salad. We got a bus to a Fethiye, it took about 30 mins, fish market there is brilliant atmosphere, well worth a visit. Sultan restaurant, Shadows Bar and NJoy, Buzz Bar, just some of the places we went to in Olu deniz, would recommend them all. On beachfront is a restaurant called Help, perfect for lunch or dinner. Nice cocktails in all these places too. Great music and atmosphere everywhere. Can't wait to go back soon.

first impression of hotel and reception was very good, pool and bar area lovely plenty of sunbeds available, bar and reception service very good, card system used to purchase food and drink no problems with bill payment paid up every day without any hassle, now to the part that was disappointing, the rooms themselves' we were given room 969 on the ground floor nice enough plenty of room, however in the corner of the room was a waste pipe for the toilet and showers from upstairs apartments, throughout the night the water being flushed was passing through the pipe making a horrendous noise, we went to reception the next day and they moved us to a second floor apartment another block(block 2) very nice, but once again upstairs toilet system was faulty and once flushed continued all night. Very poor sleep quality, plumbing definitely needs updating, overall hotel acceptable close to amenities right next to the strip and other bars, I would recommend this hotel as long as there are no problems with their plumbing

Room Tip: avoid ground floor rooms

This was our second holiday at this Resort and choose Karbel on recommendation. Very warm welcome at Reception. Our Room was in Block 7 on the second floor. Everything about the Hotel was very clean and tidy. The domestic staff work extremely hard as does every other member of the Karbel Team. Ive no complaints about this Hotel other than perhaps the bathrooms could do with alittle updating although they clean and the plumbing worked.

Room Tip: There are no rooms that over look the pool but all face into garden areas.

We stayed at the Karbel Hotel for 2 weeks, we arrived at the end of May in the early hours of the morning. Check in is quick and efficient. We were shown to our room, which was in a great location. The hotel is bigger than it looks, although being advertised as Small & Friendly, it definitely isn't small.
The rooms are of suffcient size, the shower is a little bit small, but that is not an issue. Cleaned everyday. Pool area is nice and clean, a bonus is you do not have to be up early to reserve sun beds. The pool bar serves nice food and isn't costly. The good thing is that you have your room card as a charge card, so there is no need to have cash on you whilst at the pool. The staff on reception where great, especially Urzlem (sp?) and the bar staff also very friendly.
The hotel is located at the top of the strip and is not noisy, perfectly located to be close to the action, but far enough away for the noise.
Breakfast is typical Turkish (eggs, salami, salad, bread, fruit etc), if that is boring to you, then may I suggest that you stick to English Spain?
Olu Deniz is beautiful. You are so close to the beach and there are so many bars to choose from. Favourite restaurants would be Sultans, Harrys Bar and NJoy. Bars are great, Buzz bar on the beach front is nice and relaxing.
Blue lagoon is nice to walk around, Sea horse and Billys beach are good (located in the Blue Lagoon) - Seahorse run a free bus from the hotel that Thomson will sort for you.

We would go back to Olu Deniz, but probably only this hotel as it was so nice and welcoming.

Room Tip: Email before hand and as for block 6!
