We first arrived at 4am in the morning, there were 10 of us ranging from 7 years old to 63 years old. We had been planning this family trip for nearly a year and it was the first time we had all been away together so expectations were high! We were all taken to our rooms by Mustafa how insisted on carrying all of our cases for us, we hit a bit of a snag when my Brothers room was not anywhere near his kids so the parents split between the rooms with them till the morning. We spoke with Mike the rep who got it all sorted in minutes!
The welcome meeting with Mike was very helpful, Mike is very knowledgeable of the hotel, area and full of great advise. My advice to you, listen to Mike! We didn’t on a couple of our activities and although we still had a great time, they would have been a lot better if booked through Thomson, I would recommend that if you want to do scuba diving, quad biking or paragliding that you book with Thomson, the rest of the trips are fine to book on the stripe.
The food for breakfast at the hotel was basic but nice, toast, cereal, cold meat, cheese, olives etc, none of us went hungry. Dinner was lovely! A great selection and as much as you want. Loads of different cold starters to pick from, at least 2 options for a meaty dinner or 1 veggie, fresh vegetables and a massive selection of puddings, you can’t go wrong!
The rooms were cleaned every day, the cleanliness of the hotel was spectacular and at least a couple of times each we came back to our rooms to find beautiful flower displays and towel swans on our beds, serious attention to detail that just makes it so special.
The pool was lovely albeit a tad cold but nice to dip in to to cool off, it was never packed and there were plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas.
The pool bar was also great!!! The staff, Ozzy, Eric and Mustafa became firm friends that welcomed us every day, we drank their most nights as the as the atmosphere was good, there was a couple of pool tables and entertainment every other night. Great for our little one too as the staff loved her, she spent most of her time with them!
And then there is Omer the photographer who is again, so lovely! He takes some great pics and with their being 10 of us we wanted to get some nice group shots, we were not disappointed.
As for the resort, it was perfect for me as I was looking forward to relaxing. Everything was within a 10 minute walk including the pebbly beach, there were plenty of shops, bars, places to eat, salons to get a Turkish shave or a pedicure. Some of our group were disappointed with the bars as they were looking for a bit more night life but you could still have a good night or just hop on the "Dolmus" to Hisaranou.
We did scuba diving a Lykia world, there were 5 of who did it and we were all pretty nervous. They took amazing care of us, made us feel safe 100% of the time and gave us an unforgettable experience, I can not recommend or thank them enough, it was an amazing day!
We did quad biking and paragliding with a company called "Easy Rider", although the guy that came out with us on the bikes was hilarious, the bikes constantly broke down, our helmets we battered and there were no rules at all, a free for all! We had a great time still but would recommend that you go with a better company. Our paragliding experience unfortunately was a disaster with "Easy Rider", we still did the jump but again I would massively recommend that you go with "Sky Sports" for this, they are very professional.
There was something for everyone here, the locals are lovely and we have come back with so many friends, If you go, please make sure that you go and see Omer and Ang (Aynur) at the "Seaside Travel" stand on the main stripe (as you walk down the hill on the right hand side opposite Buffalo’s which is also lovely, Kenny and Charlie are so friendly and they really do do the best steak, try the lady steak, it will melt in your mouth!!!), they arrange a trip to Dalyan (which was amazing), a private bus to the ghost town with a dinner in the most stunning restaurant I have ever been to (Jazibe) and also a private boat for the day with an on board BBQ! They are soooooooo helpful and absolutely lovely people!
I hope that anyone planning to travel to Hotel Karbel or Olu Deniz has as good a time as we did, we can not wait to go back!!!! Thank you Hotel Karbel for the best holiday I have ever had :-)

Once again had a lovely holiday in sept this year (2012). After visiting last year though we would all go back again as there are 6 of us in the party. Weather was beautiful and visiting the market was a first with many bargains to be had. Vsited Billy's Beach for an evening of entertainment and lovely bbq.Went on sail boat for a trip which was just beautiful.The staff at the hotel were very friendly and even though i found the bed is not comfortable enough for me ( as i did last year ),this was not a problem as i just put 3 sun bed mattresses on top of my bed and with the help of some blankets in the wardrobe i was then very comfy. Even the lady who did our room made the bed with all this in place which i thought was great. I think olu deniz is a little gem of a place and we all love it. will be going back again next may 2013 but staying at a different hotel although still very central, cant wait.

had quite a good stay at the Karbel. Was my first time in Turkey so wasnt sure what to expect. Lovely staff especially the men up in the resturant/buffet area. Was not happy with my room at 1st so we upgraded and new room was a million times better. Karbel hotel is in a really good spot, right by the shops and 5 min walk max to the beach. Thought Omar the photographer was ace but pics a bit expensive. Around 7 pound just for one! Ate at buzz bar which was lovely and the buffet at the Karbel was very nice but very turkish. got boring after a while. Breakfast was ok was nice to have a change from our full english but got a bit fed up of it towards the end of the week. Went on a few trips. Boat trip was ace water park was ok but bit small and dalyan trip was not that great. Was bord to be honest but my little boy enjoyed it which was the main thing. Food on this trip was horrible and i normally like any food so it must of been bad. Booked this with holiday mate. Also booked my waterpark trip with these and they picked us up on time and the drivers were very nice.The man in the office is a nice guy too but wouldnt book the dalyan trip again. The beach front is gorgeous but was a bit gutted that it was all pebbles. I found it hard to get in and out of the sea. The blue lagoon was lovely but not as nice as I thought it would be. We hired out a pedalo for like 25 Lira i think and the man said if you went over the hour by a few mins you would have to pay again ;O lol. Theres not much sand there either mostly small stones but it was really nice going in the sea it was lovely and warm and very clean. Olu deniz is gorgeous to surrounded by mountains and you can see the paragliders coming down at all times of the day. Its around 50 pound in our money to do this (150Lira) roughly and drinks in the karbel were 6 Lira for a large effes 18Lira for a cocktail and 9Lira happy hour. Full engish was 10 Lira for a large and shots were 10 Lira each if you have double is 20Lire which i thought was a bit expensive. Maids give you fresh towels every other day but dont think they actually clean your room?? Didnt notice any way!! They are lovely women tho and i did leave a tip at the end of my stay.
Dont think I would stay at the Karbel again or come to Turkey again I prefere the Greek islands but I can see why people like Olu deniz. But i prefered Zante. But i definately had an experience in Turkey. I love the food and the people and it was good to see their way of life :-) Love Zoe, Sye & Reegy xxxx

Room Tip: We had to upgrade to a family room and pay extra for this as the room we were first given was awful. The air con smelt and the room and bathroom were tiny. So the tip id give you is to take more money so you can get a nice room!!

The baby blue foyer set the tone for the rest of this hotel. The single assistant in reception was clearly overwhelmed with the number of guests needing to check in and likewise the porter who was very enthusiastic in helping us get our bags to our room. The hotel is set some way from the beach area but made up with it with a large pool lined several rows deep with deck chairs and sun umbrellas that were crammed together and all occupied when we arrived giving it somewhat the air of a holiday camp. Rooms are arranged in block towers so that there was quite a walk to the lobby area – not a problem but the architect had made very steep slopes for the passageways down to the lower level where we stayed that had mats placed on them to avoid sliding and falling – not a very satisfactory solution to the problem – certainly don’t plan on this hotel if you have any ambulatory problems. The internet was only available in the lobby and even then one had to get a new password every day and it took several attempts for the several of who were sitting there in the morning attempting to log on to the wireless network. The room we had was very spacious but the king-sized bed had just a single thin cover such that meant it was somewhat cold to sleep – I was not about to touch the blanket stuffed in the closet as it looked dirty. Breakfast was very basic. Overall a disappointing stay.

This Hotel i would recommend to anyone. The staff are great ( all of them). location is perfect for the strip and the beach. Rooms are basic but are kept very clean, the maids are very friendly and do lovely things with your towels everyday. we use to have a bet who had the best design on our beds.
The Facilities are good. We only stayed by the pool on one occasion, personally we prefer the beach, so we used the free shuttle bus to the seahorse beach in the lagoon.
We stayed Halfboard. Breakfast Ok theres always something to eat. Evenig meals. very good. Good variety hot and tasty.
Overall a Great Holiday.......
