“Met all expectations and our 11 year old loved it!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We stayed at the holiday village in august 2011 after searching for a holiday where our son would have things to do, we could get out and explore and a high standard of food and accommodation. We stayed in an activity area room and were a little worried that this might be noisy but it was fine, during the day you are close to the pool where the kids hang out, close to the water park (which our son loved) and to the catering areas. The relax side of the hotel is also very nice with it's own large pool and bar. We had friends who stayed shortly afterwards in the deluxe area and they loved this but said that the food was of such a good standard in the main restaurant they ate there most days. The staff here were all very friendly - you can't get into the restaurant without a handshake welcome and a high five for the kids - a bit odd at first but so well meant that it became natural. The room was clean and comfortable and the food in the main restaurant was excellent, no shortage of choice of dishes, both greek style and European, in fact probably the best all inclusive food we have had. There is also a snack lunch restaurant which becomes an italian at night and a Greek restaurant by the side of the pool where the portions were massive - the mezes filled us up! The drinks were good and you can get cocktails and drinkable wine (Greeks don't do that so well) but the beer was a little watery - shame as the is better beer to be had in Greece. There is a water park with slides and a young kids play area and a lazy river, a favourite with our sone. The village is all secure so we felt fine letting our 11 year old wander around with a friend. There is also the high wires which is free and great fun and adventure. We looked around the spa there and this seemed very nice also. What else to do in Rhodes? A visit to lindos is a half day out ( very hot there) to see the acropolis and the old town and in the other direction you can visit Rhodes town - maybe in the evening when it is cooler and the old town was the nicest part. Both places we got to on the local bus - you don't have to buy the expensive tour operators trip - which stop just round the corner from the hotel and took maybe 45 minutes although the bus back from Rhodes was very busy and we stood the whole way. You can also get taxis. The weather was as nice as you would expect from Greece with a nice warm wind. The beach is not so good and the village itself is in a slightly odd location in what I would describe as a half built area but once you are in the hotel this makes no difference. Altogether I would have no hesitation in going back although it is getting expensive because of the quality.

I stayed at Holiday Village Rhodes in September 2011 and i am desperatly trying to get back there this year (although it seems pretty full).

We stayed in the Delux area and it was exactly what it states - pure luxury! Very quite and relaxing (even with your children playing around you) but yoyu then had the option of going across to the Relax or Activity side should you wish to be somewhere more involved.

The room we stayed in was perfect and clean and lots of stoprage space (a fashion concious 27 yar old with a similar 3 year old child and also my mum - who i learnt from!!! and there was still room for my boyfriend to store his things). We hadthe 1st floor room and prior to holiday felt gutted that i didnt book the swim up room but i feel that this proved to be the best option anyway as our 1st floor room held the sun all day and the swim up rooms had very slipping decking! Although i found it very thoughtful that all the swim up rooms had a child gate at the patio door so that you can stop the little ones toddling out un-attened.

The food in the buffet area was lovely - huge selection for a 3 course meal -every meal! anything from healty to pure choco-holic treats (the cakes are to die for!!)

The best part of all was that when the hustle and bustle of the buffett area being too much (breakfast time) we, as delux guests, could use our own returant waitor style resturant and it was amazing.

The staff in the delux area, 2 Georges and Sofia were second to none and could really not be critisied in any way. They were very child orientated and made my daughter feel like a princess whenever they saw her.

Manager George was her little idol and if she spotte dhim would run and throw her arms round him, which he never once seemed put out by.

It was very obvious that everyone who worked here was very happy with their jobs and nothing was ever too much to ask.

We went to the Relax pool area on our last day and was sorry that we hadnt got there sooner.

All in all the best holiday i have ever had and my daughter doesnt stop asking to go back (even asked Santa!!!)

Fingers crossed i can book for Delux Area gain this year!!!! x x

Room Tip: Activity Area takes you away from the hustle and bustle but still lively

Excellent hotel for family holiday.
Visited this hotel with my 7 Year old son in September 2011.
Was really happy with all aspects of this hotel .

Firstly the rooms were spacious and well maintained. We had a double room on 1ST floor within the Activity side of the complex.
There were swim up rooms along the bottom floor of the building however I noticed quite a few of them were relatively shady by midday.. where as our room had the sun in the afternoon and evening which I think is preferable.

Food and drink was also good with a range of good soft drinks and slushy drinks for kids and a wide range of alcoholic drinks.
The staff were very attentive and welcoming especially in the main restaurant and at the bars

My son told me he really enjoyed the entertainment and enjoyed playing football in the evening in the Astro court with all the other kids .

Pool was great and the slides and lazy river just gave a little more variety .

all in all I have no faults with the hotel complex although it is quite quiet in Kolymbia.

There are a few ok beaches round the corner, where you can hire boats and jet ski's and also get boat rides to Lindos and other destinations.

We took the boat to Lindos where we were dropped off on a lovely beach in a small bay. on the return journey we stopped two or three times to give us an opportunity to snorkel or just have a swim.
Really enjoyed this holiday and if you need to spend time with the kids in a hotel with variety of activities and Clean rooms you can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Many of the swim up rooms are in the shade by early afternoon, within the activity side.

As soon as we got they the reception staff were there to greet us and our suitcases were taken to our room while we had the fastest check in I've ever experienced while traveling abroad!

Entertainment brilliant you would cry with laughter and bingo great for all ages as we're a young couple and prize are good! FOOD OMG fantastic so much choice and different everyday! Please to and enjoy this place it's brilliant! Xxx
