Karbel Hotel

Karbel Hotel Olu Deniz, Turkey  *  *  *

Delightfully appointed and often quirky complex of charming accommodation buildings in the resort centre. Notably offering an enormous restaurant benefiting from exceptional views of the striking surrounding hillsides. Good selection of facilities available that should appeal to all tastes wanting central and beach convenience. Many bars, shops and restaurants around the corner and a 5-minute walk to the beach and its lively boulevard. Sister property is Karbel Beach with which it shares facilities. No connection to adjacent, similarly named Karbel Sun.

Exterior

Collection of sixteen, pretty villa-style blocks on 3-storeys, connected by stone pathways and heavily decked with flowering greenery. Buildings are colourfully finished in a variety of pastel shades.  All rooms have a metal covered balcony. Small shrubs and plants add further colour to the blocks.

Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Storeys: 3
Built Year: 1995 to 2005

Interior

Unusual central interior with a high-ceiling lobby housing a bar and reception with bamboo seating and featuring coloured and frosted glasswork around large arched doorways. A linked enormous L-shaped buffet restaurant with an exterior terrace overlooking the pool.

Rooms: 235

Grounds

Pool terrace between the main building and a weird wall with window openings and a wave-like design to it’s top. Balustrade bridges cross the pool and there are plenty of sunbeds around all sides of the pool. An open-sided bar and restaurant with more bamboo seating and a snack area with canopy-covered, plastic chairs and tables. Fine views of the rural hillsides.

Location

Area Type: Karbel Hotel Olu Deniz is on a wide block-paved side street, near the edge of the resort development at the base of steep, rocky and wooded hillsides. The central tourist amenities start 50 yards away. With other medium-sized hotel properties. A taxi stop is opposite. The cheap local minibuses to surrounding towns and villages such as Fethiye, with its greater range of shops, can be caught at the centre of the beachfront or flagged down on the main approach road.
Nearest beach: 450 yards (Belcekiz)
