Karbel Beach - Arrived at approximately 10.30pm as a family group (3 adults, 1 teenage girl). Our suitcases were taken upstairs and we were given the high, adjacent rooms we requested. So far, so good. The security man who carried our suitcases showed us where the bathroom was, the beds and how to switch the air conditioning on, and then stood and waited for his tip. We have never experienced this in Turkey - we always tip staff, but it's at our discretion and should not be on demand! Maybe this got us off on the wrong foot with the staff. The next day we stayed around the pool. One of the members of staff (Onder) asked my daughter if she wanted to play pool - she said 'no, thank you'. He asked the same the next day, and again she said no. He seemed offended at being rejected and refused to speak to any of our group again for the whole two weeks. Amusingly though, we watched him try the same with every girl over 15 and under 30, each time without success!! We were asked by one of the staff (Oner) if we wished to go to their Turkish night. However, as this was our 13th trip to the resort we said no. He asked why, so we told him how many times we had been. He also took offence at our refusing to attend and didn't speak to us again! Ozzy, who worked at reception, was very unfriendly - he could barely raise a smile and as time wore on he would not even look us in the eye or acknowledge our presence. We spent less and less time in the hotel just to get away from the unfriendly and even hostile behaviour towards us. Myself and my daughter have visited Turkey 13 times and we have never, ever experienced staff like this. They were rude, arrogant and their behaviour was bordering on nasty. In our second week, we asked if we could retain one of our rooms as we were not being picked up until 5pm on our final day. Ozzy said he could not tell us until the morning of the day we were due to leave whether we could do so - surely he would have known if one of our rooms would be free at least two or three days prior to our departure - another example of their hostility to our party. We therefore had to make alternative arrangements. When we handed our keys in he did not even look up from his desk or ask if we had enjoyed our stay - he did not even acknowledge our presence. I would never recommend this hotel to anybody - which is a great shame as the hotel itself is lovely - it has a beautiful pool area, the rooms are very nice and clean and it is in a fantastic position in Oludeniz - near the beach front, but with no noise from any bars in the area. Many of the guests staying in the hotel had actually booked to stay at the Karbel or Karbel Sun, but due to overbooking had been sent to Karbel Beach. Thankfully this wasn't our first stay in Turkey, if it was it may have been our last. It was only the friendliness of every other person we met in the resort that ensured our holiday was enjoyable in every other respect.

My wife and I stayed in the Karbel Beach hotel for two weeks and I can honestly say we have never enjoyed a holiday so much. The hotel is very clean and tidy. The staff are really good fun, always on hand. It was our first time in Olu Deniz, infact our first time away, without our daughter in tow, in all our twenty years together. So it was to be quite a special holiday. The staff seemed to recognise this, making our nights very personal and our days relaxed and full of laughter. Oner, manager. Onder, Barman. Oner, waiter. Muaharem, waiter. Sultan, Chef and Murat, who made our stay so special, all deserve a big thankyou. Simply superb !

The Karbel Beach Hotel is small and friendly with a pool. The rooms are basic but clean and have air conditioning, the staff are very friendly, and the hotel manager, Osman, is a good laugh. The beach is only a minute or two walk away. I have been back here over and over and am never disappointed. A great location!
