Personal touch, they can't do enough for you, the cleanliness was perfect, the food - is BEAUTIFUL.. Their chefs are brill- steaks and chicken was beautiful. Service and value was great. I really cannot pick one fault.. And I've already recommended club Evin to others. The Club Evan Team are amazing.. Izzy is just a mother hen- she's an angel.. Mehmet is so kind and thoughtful, there is too many people to go on about.. But I can guarantee personally, if you're thinking of going- don't hesitate.. Book now for a brilliant holiday ❤❤❤❤

If you go to the Club Evin expecting the Ritz you will be disappointed; but in the best possible way! I have been to the Ritz and it is a sterile, unfriendly environment where you are just a room number. The Club Evin will always win for us because of the wonderfully friendly, caring family who own and run the hotel and their well trained staff. At least one member of the Gumuscan family was there 24/7 and often all three were in attendance. They were ably supported by three lovely Scottish ladies, one charming, young Scottish man and several friendly Turkish men and women.
When we booked the Club Evin it had a two star rating. However, we booked because of its high position on Trip Advisor. We were very please, but not altogether surprised, on arrival to find that the hotel had received a third star.
We had declined the Thomson coach and booked a private transfer through Eric Erkan as we were sure he would pass this on to DM Transfers and this proved correct.
We were met at Dalaman by a young driver and shown to a Mercedes MPV. This was immaculately clean and had large, comfortable leather seats. Although the driver was young he was good and we felt very safe with him.
We reached the Club Evin in about 70 minutes. He asked us if we wanted a drink or to stop but as we already had some water we said no! We paid him the £70 on arrival and checked our return pickup time.
Before he had opened the back of the vehicle Dino, one of the Club Evin waiters was there to take our luggage.
In reception we were met by Mehmet Gumuscan, the owner, who sorted everything out in a couple of minutes. This included a safe deposit box key and the air con controller. See prices below. The safe boxes are in reception and are totally “safe”! you have one key, reception has another and both are required for the boxes to be opened.
We had asked for a quiet room on a low level. This we got. It was on the ground floor, directly on the corridor between reception and the bar and overlooked a small garden. It was perfect for us. What made it even more perfect were the four friendly cats who greeted our appearance on the balcony every day. Mind you I think the fact that Jean fed them every morning and evening helped. We are both animal lovers!
The lounge was big enough for the two of us with a sofa bed, a fixed breakfast table and four stools and the small kitchenette adequate for the only meals we prepared; breakfast. There is a two ring electric hob with a pull out light/extraction unit above. The kettle worked well and was put to good use a couple of times a day. The crockery and cutlery was in good condition and there was enough for four place settings. The only thing we bought from a local supermarket was a couple of mugs as the cups were “teacup” sized and we like a decent portion when we make a hot drink. There was also a small side table with a shelf. This was ideal for charging laptops, iPads and phones as it was right by an electric socket.
The bedroom was small but once again adequate. There are two small wardrobes, one in the hallway and one in the bedroom which will easily contain all the clothes you will need for a two week holiday. We had twin beds and there was a small dressing table with a large mirror.
The bathroom has a small bath with shower over. The water is solar heated and I did not expect to have hot water first thing this morning. But when I showered after my walk there was still enough heat to make the shower enjoyable. However beware! When you shower later in the day, after about 15:00, the water is ferociously hot and could easily burn the unwary. Children should be supervised.
Bed linen and towels were always spotless and changed every day or so. The cleaning ladies were charming and seemed to work nonstop. We never had any reason to complain about the cleanliness of our apartment!
The Club Evin is at the moment a two block hotel; however, there are plans to add another block with two bedroom apartments, a hamam and a small fitness centre.
The two blocks are either side of a nicely shaped swimming pool. This pool and the surrounding area are kept spotlessly clean. There is an adequate number of sunbeds and we never had to search for one or a sunshade. If you are hungry or thirsty by the pool you will never have to move to satisfy your needs as TJ or Alistair will be round, every few minutes, to take your drink, food or ice-cream orders. There is also a small, shallow, well shaded children’s pool.
The hotel’s restaurant, which has recently been renamed “Revolution”, is excellent and the food is freshly prepared to order. There is a choice of breakfast options which can be ordered for most of the morning and are at a very reasonable price. Whilst we were there, full English and Turkish breakfasts were just 4.90 TL (£1.75). These dishes could be ordered later in the day but the price went up. The two chefs work tirelessly and all meals are well prepared, nicely presented, hot and tasty.
On different occasions we had various breakfasts, lunches and dinners in the restaurant and I have reviewed it elsewhere under the name Revolution. We never had a single complain about the food and the waiters and chefs bent over backwards to cater to our requirements. For example; the English breakfasts came with toast made from a square, English style loaf. We found this to be tough so the chef toasted the lovely Turkish bread for us and we had that with all future breakfasts.
We also had the Sunday lunch at the hotel and it was lovely. A large bowl of homemade vegetable soup was followed by roast meat (choice of chicken, beef or lamb) and all the trimmings. This was followed by a choice of apple pie or ice-cream. The price for this has slipped my memory but I remember thinking it was very reasonable. There was even mint sauce with the lamb!
I could go on and on singing the praises of this lovely, family run and family friendly hotel but I will finish by saying that the biggest asset that this hotel has is its staff!
No matter how busy they were, they always had the time to stop and greet us, shake our hand or give us a hug and ask about our welfare. This for us is what a holiday hotel is all about. We will be back.

TURKISH NIGHT
At the Club Evin, Wednesday night is Turkish night. We had been given a heads-up about this from a friend on TA and so decided to give it a try.
We spoke to Pam in reception and asked if it was all right to invite our friend Linda and after receiving a positive reply we booked a table for three with Isabel in the restaurant.
Start time was 20:00 and we arrived and ordered our drinks. The tables were set out around the pool with the food at one end next to a small cleared area which was to serve as a stage for the "acts".
The food consisted of Turkish meze dishes and freshly cooked barbecue. The Meze consisted of several dishes including the usual hot chilli dip, yogurt with garlic, potato salad, aubergine salad a mixed potato and vegetable dish and a green salad. There was also a big heated tray of rice and a basket of bread.
The barbecue, which was expertly cooked, consisted of Kofte, chicken kebab and chicken fillets. The meats were tender and totally delicious. The Meze dishes were obviously freshly made and of a very high quality. We all loved it and even though the initial portions were more than generous, we all went back for seconds. There were no shortages!
After everyone had eaten their fill the entertainment started. First up was a troupe of young, very athletic young men dressed as Zombies who did a very good routine of mixed break dancing and acrobatics. This they finished off with a short "fire" handling act. All in all a well thought out piece of entertainment.
There was a short break of 10 - 15 minutes between each act.
Next was a male belly dancer. He was tall and willowy and dressed in an attractive white outfit. He was a very good dancer and I think it took one or two of the other guest a few minutes to realise "he" was not a "she"! It was obvious that he loved to dance and it showed in his "passion".
Next was a female dancer who was ok but seemed more interested in collecting money than dancing and her routine was very basic and a little pedestrian.
This was followed by a troupe of young girls dressed in traditional costumes. Not surprisingly they did some traditional dances which were fun to watch.
Last of all was another female belly dancer who put the other female to shame. She was young and beautiful and knew how to belly dance.
This had turned out to be a very good evening’s entertainment and at 30 lira (£10.50) each, great value for money.
Although we did not go to the Turkish night on our second week, due to a prior commitment, we were told that the second week would be half price!
We would happily recommend this evening and this hotel to anyone.
Peter & Jean. :o)

I stayed at Club Evin in June with a group of friends, my review is a little late, but better late than never! From we arrived we were treated like royalty. We were shown to our rooms while getting our luggage carried for us. Our rooms were spacious and modern and were equipped with kitchen utensils although they were not needed as the food at the Restaurant was delicious. Our room also had a shower and a bath with the maids attending daily changing the sheets and giving us fresh towels and toilet roll. The pool was large enough and not too deep just the way I like it ;) there were also enough sunbeds for everyone. The hotel hosted two events each week, Turkish night which was very entertaining with different acts performing which were interesting to watch and I even got up for a boogie myself with one of the belly dancers. There was a barbeque on this night serving pasta, different types of chicken, chips, rice etc and different Turkish dishes. Turkish night took place every Wednesday night. There was also Saturday night entertainment with a variety of different acts. Although these two were great events, there was also other entertainment all week including karaoke, bingo and quizzes. The location of the hotel was perfect, it was quiet but if you wanted to party Pasha Nightclub was just a five minute walk away. The beachfront was roughly a ten minute walk from the hotel which was perfect for us during the day as we enjoyed shopping and relaxing by the beachfront. The service from the staff was excellent. I'd like to thank a number of people for making my first abroad experience one to remember - Isobel, Dot, Ali, Hasan, Pedro, Ulas, Dino, and lets not forget Alasdair/Alex/Buddy ;)

But the staff are great in general we arrived at like 3am and Pedro was there and carried our luggage and when u was in the bar they was great. we went out to bar street with the chef Tamas and two of the waiters Tj and Dino some of the other guests came aswell and the staff were great they looked after the girls if they was goin to the bar and 1 of the girls got in such a mess she couldnt walk haha and they carried her home. The cleaners are in every day which is always nice to see... We went on a boat trip and we spoke to 1 couple and they said they hadnt seen a cleaner in 6 days... Also the location is great its a 10 min walk from the beach. So if you have booked this place you wount be dissapointed! We will be coming back :D

Stayed here the last two weeks in September.
Great apartments, cleaned everyday. Staff are so friendly and helpful.
If you want to lounge around the pool, there are always beds available, and the pool is a nice size. Or if you like getting out and about, the beach and marina are only ten to fifteen minutes away.
Great place and superb staff. Thanks for everything.
John, Judy and family.
