Hotel Karbel Sun
Ranked #49 of 102 Hotels in Oludeniz
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Just returned from week in ola deniz staying at karbel sun. What a relaxing hotel! We had a fantastic room with views of the sea. Ola deniz is full of nooks and crannies that invariably lead back to the strip and the karbel sun is perfectly positioned at the top end. It was great to be able to step out of the hotel and within a minute be in the thick of things and yet once back in hotel you would never know the strip was so close. Staff are friendly, especially Nida, the receptionist. Grounds are really well maintained and hotel is always kept clean. Breakfast Is not the greatest but enough to do the job. Food is so cheap when eating out - try Bella & Gusta along the front. Could spend the next half an hour recommending places, but in a nutshell - a safe and friendly resort and a great hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room on higher level but only if you don't mind climbing the steps.

We stayed here for the first time for our honeymoon (second time in Olu Deniz) and for a 3 star, it is a great hotel. Unfortunately, when we arrived at 2am, we were allocated the basement room, two single beds and tiny room, like previous people have mentioned on here. I was slightly disappointed as I had emailed the hotel before arriving to let them know we were on our honeymoon, however The staff were brilliant the next day and provided us with an upgrade at £120 for the next 9 nights with a lovely surprise in our room with a bottle of wine, rose petals and fruit.

The hotel itself is lovely, the room we stayed in was spacious and clean, ok the balcony you couldn't swing a cat, but we hardly were in the room. Tiny niggle of not having tea and coffee in the room, but not a huge thing at all. The bar staff were absolutely brilliant, especially Cenjo. The pool was also lovely, however we did battle with trying to find a sunbed as some people put their towels down in the morning and then seemed to disappear for the day.

The location is brilliant, only a 5 minute walk down to the main bars and restaurants and beach, with the "taxi rank" on the corner.

Our only complaint, which sadly has made us decide not to come back to this hotel, is that on the last day, we were flying home at 7pm. We offered to pay the extra charge to keep the room on but the receptionist (lovely lady) convinced us not to pay extra and they would keep our luggage in reception and provide us with a room to shower at 4.30. We handed the key back in and went down to the bar. I was halfway through ordering a drink when Mehment, took the menus off us and we were refused service. We felt very uneasy and unwelcomed and decided to go to the beach as it was quite clear as we had checked out, we were not a priority. Upon returning to the reception to shower and change, we were bombarded by phone calls telling us to hurry up and accused us of being in the room for too long. we had only been in there for 30 minutes, as allocated to us!!

I know it may sound petty but it was our last day and it ended on such a downfall. Nobody helped us with our bags when we left and we were more than happy to leave the hotel and will not return!

I know a few people have mentioned Mehmet, and the only thing I would suggest is treat him the same way he treats us, rude!

Room Tip: Room 510 - bigger rooms

Just come back from a two week holiday at the karbel sun with my wife. Stayed from the 27 july till
10 aug. The hotel is great, its in a great spof right at the top of the strip but not in all the noise. The room was very clean and the maid cleaned every day, we had a garden veiw room and to wake up and look out with the veiw of the gardens and the surounding mountains is wonderful.
The staff are very freindly and Nardia on reception is so helpful and full of local infomation, she always has time for you.
The prices for food and drink are more or less has what you pay in the bars etc, Ali the hotel manager was a friendly person, always said hello when he seen you. Also the other guest seemed to be has friendly to,everyone would say hello when they had seen you round the hotel.
I would highly recomend this hotel, its a great place to stay, everything is on your doorstep, taxi rank just cross the road,supermarket just cross the road bars and resturants on the strip.
Would like to say a big thankyou to Ali and all his staff for a great holiday, many many thanks

I stayed here for 2 weeks end July beginning August, Its a great hotel kept really clean by the friendly cleaners. The rooms are are quite small but enough room for sleeping and relaxing.Breakfast was ok with bread,jam, cereal, cheese ,meat tomato,cucumber ,olives and hard boiled eggs it would have been nice to have scrambled or poached egg sometimes xx The pool area is nice music not to loud and plenty of sun loungers. The bar area do good cocktails and excellent snacks .The Sunday night barbecue is well worth a visit with great entertainment and lovely food .

My husband and I stayed in the Karbel Sun Hotel in Oludeniz Turkey this August, the room was very clean , the staff couldnt do enough for you and Mehmet the restuarant manager made our holiday with his charm and the making an effort to know all guests by their first names.
I would recommend this hotel to couples and young families not really for club 18-30s (Thank god !!!) The Sunday night hotel barbeque was brilliant with lovely food and great entertainment.
Please avoid Billys Beach by the Blue lagoon unless you want food poisining as I was ill for 3 days after going to their saturday night barbeque. Again Mehmet came to the rescue giving my husband black tea and fresh bread to take to me as couldnt leave the room.

We will definatly be returning next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room not a basement as they look very dark.

My partner and I visited the Karbel Sun for the 4th time this year with family and it most definately won't be the last! The Karbel Sun is perfect for us...clean, friendly and great location. The hotel is situated at the top of the strip which is a short walk down the main strip to the beautiful beach. The hotel setting is beautiful and most rooms have a view of either the sea/gardens/pool. We had a deluxe room this year which includes free air con and fridge, these rooms are slightly bigger than the standard rooms and have a more spacious bathroom, however the standard rooms are are perfectly fine!

I don't have anything negative to say about this hotel, or their staff. Thank you SO MUCH for another amazing holiday!

Anybody going on any trips go to pioneer travel at the bottom of the strip and ask for morris we used pioneer travel 3 times and had fantastic trips everytime dont go anywhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view balconies small but view is stunning
