“Great hotel, fantastic staff and entertainment team!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

As stated in many reviews this hotel is spotless and much nicer than most self catering accommodation. The staff whilst young are friendly and cant do enough. Food is good value and quality with varied special nights like bbq or stuffed chickens etc. The entertainment team made the holiday though easy to understand what they are saying and they are intelligent too so not just party animals. Eager to please and encourage everyone to join in but wont hassle you if you don't feel like it. Cookie, Honey, Coco and Gogo certainly put the hours in to ensure you have a good time all day.
The hotel is in a good location about 10-15 mins walk from the beach or harbour.

Club Candan is a great location being only 10-15mins walk from the Beach, Bars and Harbour that are great for food (and you can get good deals if you are willing to be strong and barter, as everyone wants your custom!). The resort is well equiped with a large pool, big slide for both kids and adults; a separate pool for kids with mini slides (and a kids club); sunbeds all around that get sun all day, but also have umbrellas if you want some shade; good bar with reasonably priced food and drink; the apartments are large with a well enough equiped kitchen, aircon and are very clean; onsite hairdresses including great authentic Turkish shaves, tattoo parlour; small shop; Turkish bath and Fitness room (with a few machines). All the staff are great, but to save the best for last the Entertainment team of Cookie, Honey, Coco and DJ Gogo were outstanding. Everyday they facilitated many pool and bar games thoughout the day and evening entertainment for both kids and adults. They were always energetic, fun and did not go round the pool with a hard sell to get people involve, but rather were just very socialable and friendly and left you lazing in the sunshine if that is what you wanted. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel from couples to families.

Just got back from a 2 week stay at Club Candan (Jandan) with my family,missus and 3 kids. Wow,what a place! Lets start with the accommodation, the rooms are very clean and are well kitted out. The maids do a great job ensuring there is clean towels and bedding. Take your own coffee mug though as the cups are tiny haha. Beds are quite hard,but you don't go on holiday to spend all your time asleep. There are plenty of other services available, such as a gym, vitamin bar, kids club, little shop, doctor, Turkish bath and massage, tattooist, should you want to use them. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. There is a hair salon run by Curly who is a friendly guy, in fact, all his staff were very friendly, always ready with a smile and a chat. I can recommend the Turkish shave (nice job Curly) and the girls and my missus had their hair braided which was also very well done and reasonably priced.
The entertainment staff at Club Candan were FANTASTIC!!! Cookie, Co-Co, Honeyy and DJ Go-Go worked all day and night every day and night and did a great job keeping everybody entertained. All ages from 9 months to 90 years were catered for. Music all day, pool games, bar games, kids disco, bingo, adult games too many to mention. Participation isn't necessary, but is a lot of fun when you do.
The food was good, though not brilliant and the waiters and bar staff were very friendly and helpful. To be honest, the waiters were outstanding.
Take time out to get to know the people who work there and your holiday will be enriched by this, they all work very hard and cant do enough to please.
A truly fantastic holiday was had by us all and we will be going back again. Can highly recommend Club Candan to any family who are looking for the perfect family break. 10/10!!!

Room Tip: Book the full tv package when you arrive £15 for 2 weeks, this will help if the weather is dodgy and...

Staying here for 1 week and very pleased with the accomodation and location. Staff are helpful and polite and food is good. Quiet location but not far from the beach front and marina. Our kids are 9 & 6 and it is excellent for them too. Thomson staff are great from the girls in the kids club to our fab rep- they couldnt do more for you!! Definatly recommend this holiday.

We stayed here at the beginning of May for 7 nights. The hotel is nice fairly modern, our 1 bedroom apartment was a good size. The only issue I had - the floors in the apartment were filthy. The maid came in daily emptied the bins, made up the beds and forgot to run a mop over the floor. The food in the restaurant was ok, the wrap, chips + soft drink 10tl was a good buy (limited special offer). The entertainment team kept everyone amused esp Cookie, my kids loved the 'balloon man' who made animals, swords, flowers etc from balloons.

The swimming pool was fantastic I was never off the gigantic slide, it was awesome!!! We went on a day trip to Rhodes which we booked through Mustapha who is based just down the road from the hotel. It cost £79 for 4 of us Thomson were charging £49 per adult £39 per child what an absolute rip off! Take my advice go to Mustapha you will get a far better deal. We were on a high speed catamaran took around 50 mins to get to Rhodes, Rhodes Town was lovely.

There was a mosque just over the road from the hotel, the call to prayer could be heard several times a day. We didn't mind it at all, very cultural and nice to hear. The hotel shop was pretty poor basic selection and overpriced also it had a bizarre selection of toys inc a doll with a tobacco pipe lol. All in all we had a great holiday and we are seriously thinking of returning to the Club Candan next summer.

Room Tip: Try to get a pool view room
