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!
