We stayed at hotel Karbel for two weeks from the 17.07.2010 and had a brilliant time. Hotel is very clean, rooms are quite small but if you keep them tidy it's ok. The hotel grounds are really nice, pool is good size and clean, if you have kids would recommend to take bottle of water and buy ice lollys because they only cost a 45 cent where a large coke will cost about 5 lira. When you order and food or drinks at the hotel you have to present a card and sign a reciept and then you can pay at the end of your stay. Only ordered pizza at the pool bar, it was really nice and reasonable priced 11 lira for a magarita. We stayed b&b food was nice enough, same buffet choice every day but served its purpose.
The main strip was really good lots of bars with food and entertainment. Recommend Njoy to eat, there food is VERY nice, even lasagne came out in a flamming clay pot!
Beach is lovely, went to lagoon which is nice but impossible to get in the main bit, its packed with locals you just can't get near. Advise to buy your own beach umbrella from one of the shops [ours cost about £8]. If you go to the beach a lot you'll save quite a lot of money, two loungers and a umbrella 18 lira. Pebble beach but I prefer this anyway the sand does my head in. Tip if you go to the beach toilets [advise to use only in an emergency] take a peg for your nose and some wipes or tissue as they don't have any.
Went on boat trip on Volkan 4 was good but would go on a half day trip next time on a smaller boat - just our preference. Went on Jeep safari which was an excellent day out, and cost 16 lira for adults and 8 for kids, out from 8am to 6pm including food. Great way to see Turkey and loads of fun., take a bag of sweets and throw to kids on way.....oh and expect to get drenched!
General costs: two adult meals, a childs meal, 4 beers and two large cokes approx: 80 lira [approx £35] which is very resonable considering the food is such good quality. Large beer average 5 lira and large soft drinks 3.50 lira.
One important note:DO NOT GET A DRINK IN DALAMAN AIRPORT IF YOU DON'T LIKE BEING RIPPED OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two large beers and a large coke 45 LIRA!!!
Its a total disgrace, there are no prices anywhere in the bar and the staff are not very nice. My drink tasted like bleach so I asked them to change it [I don;t normaly complain but you just couldn't drink it], after being passed round 5 waiters noses and one even having a sip they brought it back and said it was ok! I refused to accpet it and they changed it. Total opposite to any bar or waiter in olu denise who can't do enough for you.
Overall had a great time, good food, gorgeous weather, friendly people, everything you need for a good hol......already booked for next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
