had a great time. staff were very good. hotel was central for everything. beach and shops were 2 minutes away. plenty of bars. the locals are really nice and friendly.the only downfall was the hotel food. we had some really nice meals out and it was so cheap.

the hotel and staff were excelent by turkish standards and it was great value for the money we paid. on the downside they are very strict with the meal times so do not be late going in for your meals. the hotel has lots of other good hotels and bars nearby and they are all very friendy and welcome you with open arms.

Room Tip: 2nd floor(top floor) room. all purchases in the hotel are made with a hotel credit card which they...

After our great holiday at the hotel Karbel Beach i booked again for this year as soon as i got home but im afraid to say it was not as good this year as it was last year. The main problem was they changed the staff only two from last year were at the hotel this year that was the security man and one behind the bar.

The restraunt last year was run by Mehmet and was incredibly well run as son as you sat down someone was waiting to take your drinks order as soon as you finished eating the plates were taken away and every night there were napkins on the tables, this year a couple of times there was no cutlery on the tables and napkins only appeared now and again you had to wait ages for a drinks order and when they came they had to call over the restraunt manger to interpret what you asked for if you were female 18 and had a low cut top you got the managers interest but if not he hardly spoke which was so different from last year when Mehmet run the show.

We did find mehmet at a newly opened cafe under the main karbel hotel which i will say is worth a visit it's fully air conditioned and do great coffee's and snacks and of course mehmet runs it like clock work he should be promoted to manager of both the hotels customer service department and it would be a massive improvement.

Last year in the hotel you could ask Omar on reception to call the sea horse beach bus which picked you up and took you to the lagoon beach bar and then took you back for free but this year when we asked they said that they had new management and they could not phone any more i was gob smacked this was one of the reasons i rated the hotel last year and for the price of a phone call they decided it was not acceptable but we asked the rep and they called them for us now and again otherwise i just used the phone card and called myself, i know its just little things im moaning about but its the little things that make the holiday and last year it was brilliant and the staff were awesome this year not so good but Olu Deniz is a great place and ill be back next year but maybe another hotel.

We have used the Karbel Beach hotel for 3 yrs on a run now, and cannot complain about it. It is well placed for all amenities such as the beach, night life, shopping, bars and restaurants, in fact all you would need. The staff are very polite and helpful in every way and all meals there cover a wide selection of food. The breakfast comes as a self service meal, but you can eat as much or as little as you like of the variation of foods layed out. The evening meal is served by the hotels chefs, and there is a wide selection of foods to choose from. The Karbel Beach has its own bar and swimming pool, and is always kept clean.The showers in the apartments are rather small for large sized people, but other than that I find the apartments quite reasonable.
It is 3 mins walk to the beach from the hotel, and there is a short walk through basically facing the hotel lined on both sides with market stalls that leads to the main street 2mins away where all the night life is.( BEAT THAT)

Room Tip: We had a Room on the ground floor twice and had no view and little privacy, we had ant visitors if d...

Just got back weather was superb. Room was very small for 4 of us staff stated that they were not told that we had 2 children with us at 1 point tried to tell us that we had made it up. Anyway managed to change room. Breakfast was very poor unless you love boiled eggs and cold meats and olives. Dinner was also quite poor most nights was some sort of chicken dish variety was bad. Although were half board decided to eat out on a few occassions very cheap starters main meal and drinks for 3 adults and 2 children came to around £50 very good meals and I recommend them. Couple of the staff at hotel were really friendly and my 2 young girls loved them. Especially the barman named Toucan very very nice and genuine and can direct you into the right places and if you want to know a little about Turkey speak to him he is full of knowledge and very interesting to talk to .Nearby beach which is seahorse beach is highly rated a lagoon which is sandy cheap hire for the kyacks and pedloes and the restaurant there is excellent. Free bus from hotel and back.
Maid service is very good also.
Overall quite a decent holiday but we went to Arenal den castel hotel called Isla parasio in Menorca last year and if you have kids I would def recommend this hotel I could not fault food staff or hotel and we will be booking to go there in 2013 that was half board and the food was un believable and so was the hotel ideal family holiday would not recommend for couples though.
Back to karbel beach hotel wether was sunny everyday and temps in the 40's.
Olen deniz itself is a very beautiful place surrounded by mountains and turquoise seas where the water is very warm and local restaurants and bars are just up from the hotel. Another thing to be careful of is the cosmos rep sold us 3 trips the worse being the Tuesday market he stated that coach would take us to local market then gold factory and leather factory. Coach did not turn up when we called them they eventually sent another coach to pick us up tried to only give us 1/2 hour in market had to tell him that we wanted at least a couple of hours and then after that he took us to a Jewlry shop and then a leather shop where anyone could walk in free of charge. My advice get trips outside of hotel not through the reps you also save a huge fortune.

Not bad little hotel in good location for beach and main strip,Rooms small but clean.Staff all friendly and helpful.Food a bit bland and repetative but plenty of it.No entertainment but very close to main strip with plenty of bars etc.
The resort itself very good with plenty to do.Boat trips from beach very cheap day out.
Would certainly go back very good value for money.
