You can expect non-stop activities, loads of pools and an adventure splash park at this 5-star hotel.
Holiday Village Rhodes gets top marks for its pool scene – you’ve got lively ones, quiet ones, and a massive splash park with slides and a lazy river. As for bedrooms, they’re really smart, with design-mag décor.
The restaurant count includes a trio of à la cartes, and when it comes to activities, stuff like kayaking, football and tennis is on the agenda. The beach is only a 5-minute walk away, too.

Honeymoon/ First family holiday
Ok so this will be a thorough review. We booked last minute week before flight and having previously been to Rhodes on adult only basis to a sister hotel we booked up. Kolymbia itself is not big and not awful lot going on. The hotel is split into parts with a road in between with underpass. We stayed in swim up room on the relax side. The room was very good size, nice bathroom with separate shower as well as bath which is good. Bed was huge and was plenty space despite our 1 year old brig in it most of the time with us. Mini fridge stocked daily with water juice and beer (note it may be worth a wee bottle of wine for those that don't drink beer) we were in a corner room 5801 I think meaning we got the wind when it was windy, blew one of the loungers in the pool one evening. As for swim up well the pool is freezing in May, they have a safety gate so you can have patio door open but wee one can't get out to the pool which is excellent safety feature. Jacuzzi jets on the steps only worked from our penultimate day but were cold anyway. On arrival our aircon was not working, called reception and someone came to fix it within 5 mins ( at midnight). Restaurant is busy buffet style, expect a lot of noise and lots of children about. Food was good, decent selection themed nights etc. There was a play park in site which was good. We decided not to enrol our wee one in kids clubs but they cater all ages of children 0-16. For young children there is a free soft play session 12-1230 each day. Shop on site sells drinks to nappies tablets and souvenirs but is expensive, shop round corner was around half the price. We visited nurse one day after our wee one fell and she didn't even examine him just kept asking if we wanted to see a doctor. Not sure in her use. Rest of staff in restaurant and reps all friendly polite and chatty. There is no nice walk to beach, we cut through a closed hotel grounds. In summary this is s child orientated resort I would avoid if a couple or group of adults as the number of kids would annoy me. Staff are fantastic, room excellent, food good and weather mainly hot. Please note not in relation to the hotel but the airport is very poor and not good if you have a baby for changing nappies etc.More

Not what we expected...
Having visited 2 other holiday villages in the past at a 4* rating and having a fantastic time we thought that Rhodes holiday village at 5* would be out of this world. All the reviews, photos, 5* rating, price etc we really thought we couldn't go wrong. Unfortunately wrong is exactly what we were... A few good points firstly, the hotel looks beautiful, the pools and rooms are kept very clean and of great size. I would have been very disappointed if we'd paid for a swim up though as most were in the shade. Anyway my daughter has a cows milk allergy and the staff were very good at supplying her with soya whenever she needed it. The lady at reception Evi, couldn't have been better so was so attentive and couldn't do more to help us so credit to her is definitely deserved. The pools were lovely, I can see why the facilities are 5* as they are fab for young children! we did love the lazy river. However onto the bad points, the food was not to 5* standard I've had much better at 4* resorts it was very bland and far too greasy. My mum was very poorly when we were there with sickness and diarrhoea and was in bed for a full day we spoke to the first choice reps who weren't particularly helpful they did offer some advice but never followed it up and happily walked past us at a later date without even asking how my mum was. Even though she new I was concerned about my daughter becoming ill, it was almost laughed off and not taken seriously. Really disappointing as we've always had great experiences with first choice in the past, just shows when you really need them... However we couldn't fault the hotel staff, the health and wellbeing manager phoned my mum 3 times to check she was ok and they brought her breakfast and dinner to the room every day after they were very attentive and almost certainly followed it up. We also found the local area very run down and the beach wasn't put much. Unfortunately due to this we wouldn't return, we are off to holiday village turkey in July and hoping it compares to the previous holiday villages we have visited. More
Hi everyone Just like to tell everyone how fanatics this holiday village is.. From begin to end we enjoyed every minute of it.. Hotel beautiful, food great staff are amazing.. Holiday reps to a great job too.. Katie was great!! She helped us book into the vip bit at Rhodes airport and made my little boy Harry feel like he was so special.. Will 100% be booking to go back next year.. :-) More
Amazing holiday and wedding...
Absolutely fantastic holiday start to finish.. My sister got married here in may 2016 and everything went perfectly.. Arrived at the hotel early hours.. quick check in and bags taken to your room immediately... We stayed in the deluxe area but with a party of 30 people our friends and family stayed in activity and relax.. its a bit of a walk from deluxe to activity and unfortunately for the people staying in relax and activity they weren't allowed to eat in all areas.. where i (staying in deluxe) was able to.. Food outstanding.. entertainment was brilliant.. pools were lovely... the staff cant do enough for you.. rooms cleaned every day to a high standard.. my only criticism is there isn't any baby change there.. i had to take my little girl up to the room or sit her on my lap in the ladies loo to change her nappy.. Would defiantly go back and would encourage my friends and family to go here..More
One week at this resort which is good for families, however the food is mediocre and not of a 5 star standard, more like a 4 star. There are lots of pools and it's generally quite a well maintained resort. There is a stony beach which is covered with red ants which isn't great for kids. Unfortunately on the first morning of our stay we found a cockroach in our wardrobe after having unpacked all our clothes, having a 3 year old with us, this was particularly worrying. The staff moved us straight away to a better room. I did end up with a bout of diahorea on the last 2 days of the holiday, we only ate at the resort so assume it was down to the food or drink. The first choice kids club was dissappointing as on the first day my daughter didn't want to go back as she she later told me the teachers were laughing at how they spelt her nAme. The last day I managed to get her back to the kids club whilst unpacking, her and her cousin were told they had to sit at the back of the circle, i could see that they had been segregated and were sitting well away from where the story telling was happening. I'm not sure if this was to do with racism within the first choice staff , but will be sending a complaint letter to request a response to this behaviour. I won't be using first choice again after this experience, however the local hotel staff were very good and accommodating. More
