Me and my girlfriend have just come back from a week at the Karbel Hotel half board in July. Below is an honest, British review of this hotel:
Positives: Great location, right next to the top of the strip. Rooms were cleaned daily, and the cleaners were friendly and made the most of the rooms with towel sculptures and other such things. Fantastic pool area, plenty of sun loungers with comfy padding. Good pool snacks and beverages, such as ice cold slushes. Easy to use card payment system. Our room was 610, and the mountain view we had off our balcony was lovely.
Negatives: The room was quite basic, but we knew this beforehand. However, the door was a little ajar in our room, so we could hear everything outside. Everything in the room did work however, and the fridge was good for keeping chilled water and snacks in. Our room was near the bar area, which was very loud until around 12ish, so trying to sleep before then was a struggle at the best of times. Our advice is request a room away from the bar and pool area. However, the areas that really let the hotel down were the half board food and the service.
The breakfast and dinner options included in the half board option were limited to say the least. Basically, the hotel has all the food options available, but anything worth having you would be charged for. So if you're going to the hotel don't bother with the half board. We had it for free, and still I would say it was a waste of money. Finally the service. If you asked staff questions they were not very helpful or interested. They only seemed to be interested in those who spend money with them, not that we didn't, as we did spend plenty at the snack bar. The service really is a mix here, if they like you they treat you as family, if they don't get that vibe they do as little as
possible to help. I should say the rep Sue was lovely and very helpful.
Overall, I would say a great hotel if you're going to spend your time by the pool and eat out at night. If you like to eat meals in the hotel and watch the entertainment then give this a miss.
