We stayed at the Karbel Hotel at the end of Sept. We were delayed and didnt get to the hotel untill 5:30am feeling shattered and very concerned after reading the reviews about being given a dungeon room.We requested a high floor room and we were so concerned about the reviews we read i contacted Thompson 3 times and they assured me that we would get what we payed for and that they would email the hotel to make sure we did get a high room with balcony that we paid for. Well youve quessed it we didnt. O.k we didnt get a dungeon room but were given a ground floor room. My husband walked into the room and refused it as it wasnt very nice and smelt really awfull. We went back to reception and told them that we wanted another room as we were very unhappy with the room they gave us.They then gave us a 2nd floor room with balcony which we were pleased with. What i dont understand is if they had that room free why didnt we get it in the first place.It seems to us by reading the reviews that everyone who requests a high room get put into ground floor rooms. I would like to ask the manager why do they do this.We mentioned this to our Thompson rep the next morning and the attitude was they couldnt care less. We have been with Thompson many times and the reps have all been first class but the ones at this hotel were useless and very poor. Saying all this once we had the room we asked for we had a really lovely holiday. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean by the maids and the hotel and everywhere in Olu Deniz were so clean.We stayed B/B as we wanted to eat out. Our daughter who has been here twice recommended some really good places to eat. We tried several places but our fav were Bella Gusto and Captain Hooks. We went to Captain Hooks for my birthday and on the night there were 3 0f us celebrating birthdays and they had put up Happy Birthday balloons across the restaurant and had decorated the tables with flowers and Happy Birthday spelt out in leaves. It was a lovely touch. They made you feel so special. If you have a birthday cake they bring it out with sparklers on and all the staff stand round the table singing Happy Birthday to you. It was a really lovely touch. If you have a special occasion out there we really reccomend Captain Hooks. We loved Olu Deniz and had some fun with the people trying to get you into their Places and cant understand the reviews which said they were a nuisance. Once you said no thankyou to them they left you alone but we found it all very funny and good fun.We found everywhere in Turkey very friendly.The only place we were dissapointed with was the Blue Lagoon.Not as lovely as we expected it to be.Dont miss the tues market at Fethiye it's huge and try the Turkish pancakes there. They are lovely. The Harbour there is lovely too. We didnt do any of the trips on offer but we heard that the boat trips and The Talk of The Town were very good. All in all Turkey is lovely and we cant wait to go back again though i dont know if we would go back to the Karbel again.
