Club Evin Marmaris
14 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Excellent location and pleasent hotel
"Stayed here with my fiancee in June and having stayed in Marmaris numerous occasions,didnt want anywhere too far away from the town centre and this is a 15 minute stroll from it.There are plenty of restaurants around though if you dont fancy a walk but its ideal after you have just finished a 5 course meal which most restaurants do for anything from 12tl to 16 tl!!
The apartments are nice and quite spacious,the surrounding roads are quiet which was a bonus and the safety deposit box was 40 tl and air con 80 tl.Didnt eat or drink at the hotel,we never do as we rather go to the local bars or cafes.You can pick a full english breakfast up for about 4 tl by the centre.
One tip,try the robin of sherwood or was it sherwood forest?? on the main road in the centre,you cant miss it.My misses said it gave her the best cocktails,some hardly put any spirits in them but these were excellent value at 4.90 tl and the large beers were 3.50 tl.
Finally Marmaris is such a great place,the people are so friendly and as usual book trips on the streets and not with expensive reps and be prepared to haggle,last of all have a turkish bath at the start of your hols as in prelongs your tan"

Lovely Apartments - exception, EBO working in bar/restaurant
"Apartments were lovely...pool was great size. It is quite deep though so possibly not best for young children... though there was a child's pool.
Agree with previous comments by xxGigglesxx... I had unpleasant experience of the pool/bar/restaurant waiter called Ebo not accepting 'No' for an answer to his request for a date... and he seemed to think it was ok to turn up and knock at my apartment door at 2.45am!! They need to put a stop to that... have been to Turkey numerous times and never had any waiter be like that... it itsnot the norm for anyone thinking about going to Turkey. The people are fantastic!!"

Good times at Club Evin
"Pleasant and well run hotel, very good standard of cleanliness and friendly staff. Agree with other reviewers pool is big and apartments well equipped. Nice mix of guests from UK and Nordic countries, kiitos omistajille! Would go back, only minor downside is food is a bit expensive."

very helpful staff
"stayed in club evin in may 2009 .the rooms were cleaned every day also the staff were very helpful and good with the children.They never rip you off and tell you the best place to get your bits and pieces for your appartment like milk and snacks.The meals there are very reasonable and the choice is second to none.This place is a must if you are going to Marmaris as it is home from home atmosphere and kindness.
Thank you CLUB EVIN for having us and we will see you in September.

"Lovely apartment, bit freaked wen i didnt no wer i was wen i arrived, but soon found my way dwn town! Everything was realli nice, maids in everyday, bathroom was best id seen in turkey, rooms wer big, pool was huge, internet access, everything was spot on. Only thing i would say, is for any young girls going to these apartments, be careful as few espec 1 of the staff can get a bit full on!!! asking u back to come back to their apartments!!! just trying their luck i suppose! But that was all, thats the only reason y i wudnt be hurrying back! Other than that these are great apartments!! :D"

Fantastic hotel best holiday ever
"Just returned from a weeks stay in the Club Evin apartments, we had a fantastic time all the staff where really friendly, the rooms where cleaned everyday, the pool was a decent size from the rest i saw in Turkey.
I would defo recommend to anyone this is by the far best holiday I have ever been on. I'm booking again for September and next May and staying in the same apartments.
In Marmaris there is lots of resturants and bars to choose from.
The only thing to be careful of is when exchanging your money out there they are really cheeky and would try and do you out of alot of money. We nearly got done out of 200TL lucky saw what he was doing, so always double check before walking out."

Best Apartment In Marmaris, Clean & Friendly
"Travelled to Marmaris in August 2008 and was an extremely late decision. After seeing other reviews of apartments in Turkey I didn't really want to go to a basic hotel and considered not going until I seen club Evin's website www.clubevin.com as recommended from a travel agent on Teletext Angela Haley T.01977 650391.
Booked the day before travelling to Marmaris and got a bargain at Â£204 each.
Once in Marmaris and at the hotel, the staff were very friendly and attending to our needs at this lovely family run hotel.
The room that was allocated was very clean and well fitted - a little small but in all honesty I only used the room to sleep there. The room was cleaned everyday and new towels were given everyday. There was a small kitchenette and a fridge in the room and you can also have A/C but it is a little expensive.
The hotel bar and restaurant was a very friendly and clean place to eat, relax and drink. There is also a big screen with Sky Sports!
The hotel pool is quite large in comparison to other hotels in Marmaris and I would recommend this hotel to families, couples and groups."

beautiful place to stay
"stayed at club evin for a week this aug, and had a brilliant time!
the hotel itself is lovely, huge pool, you should see some of them! the rooms are very spacious, separate bedroom and living space, only down side to that as the air con is in the bedroom and doesn't cool the whole apartment, air con is expensive (Â£40) for a week. all very clean and new looking, think the maid came every other day to change towels etc, staff very friendly, theres a disco?!? every night until 4am, although the music didnt continue until then while we were there, a la carte restaurant attatched to hotel. hotel is very very child friendly, majority of guests had kids, and the staff were always willing to accomadate them, play, have a laugh, get pushed in the pool! seemed to be part of the job description! hotel is in a quiet part of marmaris, 10 min walk to the beach, plenty of other places to eat nearby too, 25 min walk to the marina/bar street but you can jump on a bus for 70p. seemed like lots of guests from other hotels came to use there pool, as i said huge in comparison to others! overeall would definately go back to this hotel again"

Club Evin - great value
"Booked as a last minute deal looking for cheap and cheerful to escape the english weather.
Marmaris is a huge resort and caters well for the english.
The apartment was described as being off the beaten track but Marmaris is a maze - so wherever you are you are not far from bars and places to eat. I'd say the apartments are about a 7 minute walk to the beach and promenade.
The apartments have a decent sized pool (for Turkey) and a small kiddies pool, even though it was the middle of August never had a problem finding a sunbed. We had a studio for two - bit on the small side, but hey you only sleep here. The fixtures and fittings were clean and modern, the staff were friendly, the food was good and the bar was cheap.
Because there are no other hotels immediately round it - the bar etc tends only to have it's own guests. They advertise a nightclub open till 5pm but in reality don't get enough business to warrant opening it and there was no entertainment as such. During my stay it was family and couples and small groups of friends staying here. People were friendly but you could get a decent nights sleep.
They have their own website www.clubevin.com"

"My family spent 2 weeks at Club Evin in August 2011. It was probably the best holiday we have had. We read the reviews on the hotel so we were aware of what to expect. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful and alot of fun. The rooms are cleaned daily.My daughter loved the pool. The turkish night is excellent and there was also a snake show. We will definitely go back again."
