3rd holiday here and we still loved it!
My family and I returned to this holiday village for the 3rd time in October 2014. It was the last week before the resort closed, the weather was a bit mixed and yes the pools were cold BUT we all had a FANTASTIC time! The food was amazing, the staff are all lovely and one of the managers and several catering staff recognised us from our previous visits over 12 months ago - which was pretty impressive given the number of tourists they must see each year! The evening entertainment was great, although my youngest sometimes struggled to keep her eyes open as she was so tired from swimming all day. I can honestly say we really needed to de stress as a family, for various reasons and this holiday did just that! We all came home feeling soo much better and we are already looking forward to October 2015 at kolymbia holiday village! When we visited in July 2013 we stayed in the activity area, October 2012 we stayed in the relax area and this year we stayed in the delux area. So we have tried all areas of the village and can recommend it highly.More

DO NOT book end of season
Overall we had a great stay. The First Choice staff were without exception fantastic and the activities and entertainment was all first class. Our 11YO son loved the Football Academy and we would totally recommend it. The negative angle of this review is based on our staying at the hotel in the October half-term which was the last week of operation for the hotel before its closing for the winter. This meant that not all activities were available (high ropes) and in fact staff were dismantling parts of the activities and hotel services around us. Is was like going to the last week of a show and seeing the stage crew taking things apart and being told certain scenes were being cut as they had already been taken apart. A big issue for us was that we were also travelling with our 5.5M daughter and had really looked forward to getting her in the heated pool. The pool is closed each morning for swimming lessons, which wasn't a problem at all except that the hotel kept turning the heating off. For much of the week this pool was around 20C, the same as the other pools. Once guests started complaining it would be switched on but still never got above 24C. For children it is recommended the water temp should be at least 28C. There were children crying and refusing to participate in lessons because of the cold water and those that did were shivering. This really wasn't good enough at all and First Choice informed us they had been battling with the hotel on this issue for the last three weeks. The rooms are lovely. Food and drinks great especially the a la carte restaurants. First Choice and Restaurant staff fantastic. The short service let this holiday down badly though. We paid a five star price and barely got a four star holiday. I am sure non of this would eb an issue at other times of the year but be warned.More

Great family fun
Visited October with family of 6 , totally enjoyed every aspect. The food was a great mixture and always plenty of it. Staff were super friendly and the sports staff were great with the kids. Entertainment was fun, which it should be and the animation team worked so hard during the day to make sure everyone had a great time. I would not hesitate to book again our family totally loved itMore

Fantastic Family Fun With First Choice!!
I travelled with my family to the Holiday Village in Rhodes for the last week in October. It was quieter than I expected considering it was half term, but that was a good thing because there were no issues getting sunbeds and the queues for restaurants and bars were minimal. First impressions were very good, when we arrived it was late in the evening and pouring with rain. The lady on reception was very friendly and we were escorted to our room and our bags were also carried for us, after a quick drinks break!! When we entered our room we were all over the moon with what we had. It was a good light space with plenty of storage for clothing. The sliding doors were also a nice touch as they partitioned off our room from the children's. The washroom contained a luxurious bath and a powerful shower which was ideal for getting a young family ready each day. I also thought that the soap dispensers located in the bathroom were great for ensuring that our young children kept holiday bugs at bay! As we were located in the activity area it was a little noisy at night because of the late running entertainment. This didn't prove to be an issue because by the time we retreated to the room, our two children would fall asleep immediately. We liked the fact that our room was close to all of the facilities and that our balcony provided lovely views overlooking the pool area. A special mention should go to our cleaner who was very friendly and kept everything spotless throughout our stay. Our two girls aged 6 & 2 loved the facilities at the waterpark and also enjoyed the various kids clubs available to them. They also enjoyed the evening entertainment provided by the First Choice reps, which included lots of dancing and fun games to keep them occupied after dinner. There was always something for both of the girls to enjoy, and they both made many friends during their stay here. The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. The food offered something for everyone, and was always fresh and hot. My tip would be to sample the show cooking each day as they were far tastier than some of the other options available. We managed to get booked into the a la carte restaurant which we arranged as soon as we arrived. We chose the Tex Mex restaurant which didn't turn out to be a great experience. The meal we had was literally identical to a meal we had in the buffet restaurant 24 hours previously, just presented nicer and with added table service! Other than this the food was great for me and my family and the girls were particularly keen to show off their independence in the restaurant, by selecting their own meals in the kid friendly buffet area. We really enjoyed our stay here at the Holiday Village despite some wet weather. The facilities were certainly top class and our room the best we have stayed in!! All in all an ideal place for happy family memories, and I would not rule out coming back again sometime in the future!!More
