“What more could you ask for?”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Club Candan (pronounced Jandan) during May half term week with our 2 teenage children. We booked with thomson

On arrival at Dalaman airport we were well looked after by thomson staff. Transfer was fine - a little over 1hr 30 including a stop en route. This stop was actually very welcome and the little cafe area we stopped in was fairly priced, very attractive and had a shop with gifts etc to have a look around. 15 minutes later we were on our way to marmaris which was only 25 mins from here. The thomson rep was really helpful on the coach giving us some information about the area and turkey's history etc. We were the first drop off on our coach.

Arrived at Club Candan; very smooth check in process and shown to out room on the 2nd floor. We didn't have a pool view room and although this was fine for us they really do make a difference if you spend any time in your room. Our view left a lot to be desired! The room itself was clean, large and comfortable. A small cooking area with a full size fridge plus panini toaster and kettle - what more do you need when you can get a full meal for £2.10?!? My only criticism of the whole holiday was the beds. They are very hard and uncomfortable and all of us ended up with back ache by the end of the week.

The pool area is clean, large and lots of fun! The water slide was a huge hit with kids and adults of all ages. There is a strict no towels before 8am policy which is enforced. This meant it was very fair - get up at 7.50 to get your choice of beds or risk a lie in .

The pool bar is one of the best I've seen - quality but reasonably priced food and drinks served by friendly waiters.

The entertainment team, in my opinion, make this hotel outstanding. Cookie, Speedy and Ozzy are hilarious, not very PC, enthusiastic and just genuinely nice people. Can't stop saying "yes baby" in Cookies dulcet tones haha!!

The location of the hotel is good; we found the area with September bar etc the second night and it's a very short walk. Taxi rank just opposite the pool entrance and dolmus regularly available. Villa dream is just around the corner and I will do a separate review of this brilliant restaurant shortly.

To sum up - book it. You will not be disappointed!

We stayed for 1 week 22nd May 14 booked two 1 bed Apartments 6 adults 1 infant,apartments were spacious clean and the beds very comfortable, we were self catering but food was available from the poolside restaurant, staff were friendly and helpful. On site shop hairdresser gift shop and their own Turkish Baths. Safe hire £20 for the week you could also get extra TV channels for £10 a week. Two pools 1 for toddlers and the other for adults with a slide. It's only about 10 minutes walk to the beach. Note Air Con only in the Bedroom No Charge not sure if they charge in main season?

Room Tip: We were lucky got the Pool view when booking i believe they charge extra if you want to upgrade to p...

We stayed here August last year for our first time in marmaris, it was awful! This is NOT a 4 star hotel more like a 2 star. Our room was opposite another hotel overlooking there pool & bar. Not private at all & you would get men staring in your room constantly making you feel very uncomfortable. The room was dirty evwn though we had a cleaner in everyday!

The Shop staff where VERY rude in the hotel. Food there was awful and if you saw the kitchen you wouldn't let your dog eat there! (Which we didn't see until after)

Just to walk down the road you get harassed by men trying to drag you in there restaurants.

Rowdy familys keeping you awake at night and letting there children run wild!



I would not come back to this hotel or turkey even if they paid me!!!

My friend and I have just returned from a weeks holiday staying at Club Candan. The resort is fantastic, spacious, clean and comfortable rooms, entertainment day and night. Suitable for families, couples, friends. Bar staff very friendly and helpful - nothing too much trouble and always happy to help. They make the holiday enjoyable and easy to get on with. 5 minute walk to the nearest restaurants and 10-15 to beach front/marina. Food and drink very reasonably priced. Definitely recommend this resort. Hello to Jan, Friday, Chino, Aihan, Orlando and the rest of the staff. Emma and Gwen.

We stayed here for 1 week May 2014 2 adults 2 children 7 & 2 excellent value for money. My 7 year old used the kids club a few times it was very welcoming safe and staff were fantastic. Hotel staff were lovely the hairdresser curly was great and does an amazing job. We tried the Turkish bath and they even let the kids join in making it fun for them. The beach is 10mins away walking and there are some lovely restaurants on the way must give the Queen Vic a mention food there is lovely. It was costing no more than £20 for the 4 of us to eat out including starters, drinks and icecreams. The taxi boat to icemeler is well worth it but don't be conned into the check out day by the Thomson reps it's no way worth £113 for the family you spend most of the time on the boat only half hour in the mudd bath and an hour on the turtle beach it's probably better paying the £20 to keep your room on till 6pm.
The hotel is near a mosque but to be honest it adds to the culture and it never bothered us or woke us up, the markets are no longer allowed to sell clothing or shoes etc so if you have been to Turkey before the shops have put there prices up a little but still like a barter.
Hope this is helpful happy holiday !!!
