“ALMOST as good as it can get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We stayed here for 10 days in mid June. Initially we were given a top floor room. Avoid these at all cost; they are claustrophobic and the balcony is a joke. However we were relocated to a lovely room overlooking the pool. The hotel generally is superbly run, wonderfully friendly and the catering is beyond criticism. The downside, apart from the attic rooms, is its location. It is in a very dreary area with the only views worth having being those from the rooms overlooking the pool. To get to the beach the hotel runs a continuous shuttle bus service which is perfectly satisfactory and the hotel's beach restaurant is very good indeed. We couldn't praise the staff enough - as good as any we have ever experienced.

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor attic storey rooms at ALL cost and preferably only have one overlooking the cent...

Very hard to communicate here. Russian Hotel. Very very dirty carpet...but room ok. We and another couple were the only ones in this wing and all the other rooms had old mattresses banked up in them....very smelly room....would not recommend this one...lots more hotels on the beach shore to choose from at this time of year which was in May.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at can garden in June 2011, we did not not what to expect after reading some of the reviews before going but don't pay any attention to negatives, some people quiet obviously can't be pleased!

The hotel staff are amazing and nothing ever to much trouble for them. We were made to feel like royalty and could not of asked for a better first holiday together!
The hotel was spotlessly clean never a finger print in sight, rooms were spacious and cleaned daily, Food was lovely - never had chance to go hungry as there is always something to eat, even a midnight snack!!

Beach was amazing and less than 5 minutes away in the bus provided by the hotel and ran every few minutes so never waited long to get there or back.. Beach restaurant was lovely lots of fresh fruit and salad, and over looked the sea which was stunning!

A la carte Turkish restaurant was gorgeous set in the gardens of the hotel which was very romantic and the food it's self was to die for!

The animation team were fantastic especially azir and leo! They always made an effort to come and sit with us everyday for a chat and a ciggarette, always getting people involved in pool games or darts or table tennis, there was always something to do if you wanted to or just lounge around :)

The shops within the hotel were nice and the owners were very friendly, one even let me have things and pay the following day as I didn't have enough money!

We were always greeted in a friendly mannor and all the staff had smiles on there faces. even when out of the hotel if we saw the staff the would recognise us and stop and speak to us. There are a few shops and bars/restaurants just 5 minutes walk out of the hotel which we walked to most nights :)

The dolmus into side stops right outside the hotel and takes about 10-15 minutes, the ruins are lovely, well worth a visit!
There was also a little resturant near the harbour which was stunning lanterns lit the walk way to be greated by real parrots :) the food was amazing and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

So gutted to find out that Thomson no longer go to this hotel!

All in all this was the most amazing holiday I have ever been on and we can't wait to go back!!! Thank you to all the staff at can garden who made our stay one to remember :)

We had a great one-week holiday at this hotel, the staff is very friendly and we were treated as some kind of VIP, fantastic buffé, no matter what kind of food you like, you could always find something delicious. The animation team worked very hard to give the tourist something to do besides sunbathing at the poolside, every evening there was a show, I think i liked the Grease-show best. If you are planning a vacation here with children or old people; its no probems -the staff will help you, there is a mixture off all ages here. The pool at the poolbar is 1.50 meters, there is also a heated indoor pool with sauna free of charge. The shuttle-bus will take you to Can Gardens beach if you want to swim in the sea, in april theres a little cold at first but not colder than a scandinavian seabath in summer. We had a great holiday here at Can Garden!

This was our first trip to Turkey and I was a little apprehensive. Met on arrival with orange juice and cookies and helpful friendly staff. Room nice and clean with fridge stocked with water, sprite and Pepsi. Hotel is incredibly clean, they seem to clean constantly and all the staff had a smile for you even if they couldn't speak English. Pool area not very big but we spent all our time down at the beach courtesy of the little free mini bus. Restaurant on the beach was fab too, nothing was ever too much trouble. Animation team work very hard and try and include everyone, they would come down to the beach and mingle with the guests. Kids club not the best, have to say but my daughter went a couple of times and enjoyed it. Plenty of choice with the food, desserts amazing. Staff work really really hard. Wish we'd taken euros as everything was priced that way, we'd taken turkish money and am sure we lost out as they changed it back to euros, you could also use english money, anything in fact!! Some bargains to be had in the shops but don't forget to haggle. My daughter keeps asking when we're going back!!

Visited this lovely hotel in June this year with friends. Weather was awesome in late 30's which always contributes to having a great holiday.
We were all inclusive here. The food was out of this world, plenty of choice too. Also for breakfast someone made fresh omlettes outside for us every day. The turkish night was good too because someone made fresh dona kebabs too which were lovely.Also included with our package were two visits to their La Carte Restuarants which were a mediterainian one located at rear of hotel in an area outside with lush surroundings and the one was a fish one which was on top of the ship by the pool. Both were good experiences for us and the food was nice too.
The hotel rooms were nice too. We were on the 3rd floor so not too far away.
I liked the idea of having the all inclusive option at the beach too even though the beach was a 15 minute walk away or 2 mins in the shuttle bus which was free of course.
The animation team worked hard too to entertain everyone day and night. We arrived late at hotel but they took us to a nice bar nearby for some drinks etc.

Staff were very friendly too. Some of them waited on us by the pool and in the restaurant so we made sure we gave them a good tip at the end of our stay as this was appreciated.

We met some lovely people their too and have kept in touch via Facebook which is nice.
I would definatly go back to this Hotel at some stage in the future.
