Hotel Karbel Sun
Ranked #49 of 102 Hotels in Oludeniz
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Having a late cancellation of another holiday to Fuerteventura, i shopped around and found a late deal to Olu Deniz, staying at the Hotel Karbel Sun.
On arrival to the hotel, the receptionist was very friendly and explained all the facilities the hotel had, gave us our room key and a card which is used to scan all of your food and drink purchases in the hotel, sort of like a tab. The hotel bag carrier man (i dont know what you call them) then carried our cases to our room and on doing so, looked like he wanted a tip by stalling for a while but then realised i had nothing to give him (sorry).
First impression of the room was that it was a twin room when we booked a double, also very basic (we had the standard room) just had the bare nessecities, one thing i would like to see changed are the bed sheets, they was like towels/bathroom rugs, very rough and wasnt very comfortable especially on a sunburn as i found out a few nights in. It was however clean with working aircon and a decent power shower. On complaining that we had booked a double at an extra cost we were moved to one for the second night onwards. The hotel staff were very apologetic and handled it very well, they did offer us the deluxe room for an extra 70pounds which we viewed, it was bigger with a sofa, flat screen tv, a fridge and better bed sheets, but we opted to stay in the basic double as i couldnt fit the extra cost into my budget. You are also advised to have a safe box located at the reception area, it is occupied 24/7 and you have to open it with a key from reception which you ask for plus your own, this costs £1 a day.
The hotel its-self has an open building top half which has the reception to your right as you first walk in which the restaurant opposite to the left, then leading down a small flight of steps leads you into some very nice gardens and walk ways leading to the different buildings that make up the hotel. Underneath the restaurant is the bar area, with plenty of seating, pool table, table tennis and a library. The pool is a reasonable size, it consists of two diamond shapes with a small bridge across the middle. The sunbeds here get snapped up very early, people start leaving their towels on these from as early as 7am, by 9am they were all gone! And we noticed that some of the people who had left towels were going out for the day and not even using them!
The location of the hotel is fantastic, its located at the top of the main strip which consists of many shops, restaurants and clubs. Here, its not too noisy at night and its not a too long of a walk to the beach, plus you have many things to look at as you're walking down anyway.
I can't really comment on the food as we only had breakfast here twice and nothing else, it was just bread, cheese, ham, fruit, and cornflakes.
I really do recommend not going all inclusive though as there are some really good restaurants with 5 star service and food, some of our favourites were the sultan ahmet (traditional turkish cuisine) buzz beach seafood and grill and belkeciz beach. Costs of eating out in the evening for the two of us with soft drinks mains and deserts cost about 70-90 lira, 25-33 pounds (12.5-16.6 each) which is really good value for what you get. In the day we had a favourite kebab place located on the beach front (ive forgot the name but its the first one as you turn to the right and walk along) they do lamb/chicken on pitta, wraps or bread for 6-8 lira, 2.2-2.9 pounds each.
Theres plenty to do and see in turkey, there are alot of shops selling excursions/paragliding. We went on the Dalyan trip and the Fetiyhe market/Ghost town which were both amazing. Paragliding = £65, most excursions range from £6-50 pounds each most of them including food, some are 2 day overnight trips.
The beach at olu deniz is really nice we spent most our holiday here, it has plenty of sunbeds and more space if you dont want to shell out 18 lira for a 2 sunbed/parasol set-up. The sea was pretty calm, clear turquiose and cool. Theres also the blue lagoon to visit, its a fair walk from the hotel but its worth it. You have to pay a small amount to enter, i cant remember how much but its not more than 5 lira each, aswell as theres sunbeds to rent inside which also costs 18 lira for a double sunbed set-up.
Overall it was a great place to stay and a really nice resort, you will love it!

Room Tip: Recommend having the Deluxe room if its within your budget just for the better bed sheets.

We stayed here on our 2nd trip to Ou Deniz in September 2007. It's in a great location and the staff are very friendly. We stayed Bed and Breakfast and the breakfast eggs, breads, and salad which was lovely. The rooms are small but clean. The pool area got very busy but we spent most of our time on the beach and the Blue Lagoon

Just back from a most lovely holiday in Olu Deniz. The Karbel Sun Hotel is in a great location. The side street that leads down to the beach has many shops, bars and restaurants but yet sat on the balcony after a night out it's so peaceful, you are not disturbed at all by the sounds of the nightlife that continues. The hotel is very clean, has the most amazing staff that are so friendly. Osman is an absolute diamond. He gave us tips and advice and recommended the best beach on the lagoon. The gardens and pool area are excellent. The room and balcony were small but very clean and let's face it you're not spending your holiday in your room, so very acceptable. The only advice I would give is to book bed and breakfast, not half board, as the evening meal if on half board is extremely limited unless you choose from the al a carte menu for an extra charge. There are some excellent restaurants in Olu Deniz, and oh so very cheap! The portion sizes are very large too! Harrys restaurant and roof top cocktail bar has amazing views of the beach and sunset, also Bella Gusto and Sugar n Spice on the front are definitely worth trying, you will definitaley not be disappointed. All in all, I am hooked on the place now! I had never been to Turkey before and I have travelled to many places but have never experienced such a friendly place, and I shall definitely be returning, as have so many other people that stay at the Karbel Sun.

We stumbled across this hotel by chance when we stayed ther for 2 nights when our own hotel was overbooked when we arrived, we were warnly welcomed with a big smile from Nida on reception who couldnt do enough for us !!! we ended up using the Karbel sun facilites for the next 2 weeks and only ever sleeping ot our designated hotel !!!

Mehmet and all the bar staff were great, second to none, we have holidayed all around the med and never experienced such a warm welcome even tho were were not even staying there.

The food was great (you gotta try the awesome sea bream, best ive tasted),

There was no scramble for sunbeds around the pool, the mood was very relaxed a great place to chill and soak up the sun !!

Having spoke to quite a few of the guests, it appears most of them are repeat visitors who come nearly every year,

great value for money, they made the holiday so good and so wecoming, we are going back next year........ to get married,


so to Ali, Nida, Mehmet and the rest of the gang, well done and see you next year !!!
