Stayed at this hotel for a week at the beginning of May 2012. The first time we have ever been to Turkey as it had never really appealed to us. An opportunity came up and we thought we would give it a go. We are so glad we did, it completely changed our opinion of Turkey. The hotel was really fab, our room was ideal with a small balcony and just right for two to sit, spotlessly clean with the most attentive and friendly staff throughout.The food was of good quality with really good variety and choice. There is a photographer on site (Omer) who offers to take photos evenings or daytimes for you. He is really friendly and very good at making you feel relaxed, we were really pleased with our photos and they werent too expensive.

As for the resort it was amazing, the overall cleanliness was second to none and would even say it put our home city to shame. The Turkish people were so friendly and very comical and we did not feel harrassed at all.

There was so much on offer to do for all. We cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: We personally like to be above 1st floor level, views of the mountains are amazing, i would avoid ba...

We stayed 10nights at Karbel and found it fantastic. The only downs were the choice or repetitiveness of the buffet breakfast and some of the entertainment left alot to be desired but all in all a very nice place to stay. I would have no problem recommending to friends as the rooms were thouroughly cleaned and well maintained throughout. The pool area, which there is only one main pool now, is also a great area to chill out on the loungers and dip in when the heat gets too much. I found the location too to be good cos it was right at the top of the strip so no boom boom music all night from the bars further down and the pool area doesnt have that god awful muzak playing all day either thankfully! : )

Room Tip: We were in block 3 no. 312 and found it to be a nice compact and comfortable twin room which we turn...

I have stayed at the Karbel exactly seven times and the reason behind that is because it really is a fantastic hotel. I have never been disappointed with my room, the food or the staff. Every year it just seems to get better and better! The food is always great quality, especially the snacks during the day when you just want to sit by the pool and cool down. The staff are always friendly, every year we get nothing but a warm, welcoming return from everyone and their rooms are always exceptionally clean. The television in the room has a good range of English and Turkish channels -- not that I spend a lot of time watching it being on holiday but it's great to have on when you are getting ready to go out! The drinks list is extensive and I definitely recommend the cocktails at the bar! Great hotel, would advise anyone to stay here!
