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.

This is a fab hotel for Families, there are lots of activiies for children of all ages. I don't think it is a couples resort. Positives Food was lovely always lots of choice in the buffet, food was always hot. Tried all 3 al a cartes they were all fab food and service. Bar staff in the Relax pool bar (Billy) and the adults only bar (sorry can't remember his name) are superb really friendly great customer service, credit to the hotel. Also the life guard in the relax area (Petros) was great. Rooms are a nice size, air conditioning the best we have ever had really quiet Things I disliked I would expect at a 5* resort to be servered drinks with my meals, Soft drinks beer and wine are available to help yourself in the restaurant if you wanted anything else you would need to leave the restaurant and go to the Bar. Stayed in room 5105 and the cleaner could of been better. There is a matress protector on the bed which has a plastic back which makes you sweat even with the air con on. We had various issues with the room ants and the door not shutting properly these were reported on numerous occasion but never dealt with sufficiently I don't expect to have to leave a deposit for beach towels I don't expect to have to pay 35 Euros for a safe Overall I enjoyed the holiday it is a break away but it is not somewhere I would return to because there is not enough for just couples and I don't believe it is a 5* hotel. The staff I have mentioned made the holiday enjoyable. If I had children my opinion would be differentMore

Absolutely Amazing!! Will definitly be returning!
We booked this 6 weeks before going, also managed to get a free kids place! Went for a week on 26th September with my partner and our 2 girls ( 6 & 10). Booked a swim up room in the deluxe area. Arrived at 1:00am and we was greeted in reception with a glass of champers, got our keys and someone took our luggage to our room. Was really impressed with the rooms, very clean and spacious. Also had a welcome pack of sandwiches and drinks which I thought was good as my kids were starved by this point! I would recommend booking a taxi transfer from the airport as it will save a bit of time. Got up the next morning and went for breakfast, restaurant was amazing, food was lovely and everyone is so polite and welcoming. we had the sun in our swim up room from 1pm everyday so we made a trip to one of the other pools and then headed back to our room after lunch. Always loungers available! The deluxe area has a bar but the relax area has a swim up bar, they both serve snacks which consists of a selection of rolls, for the actual snacks like nuggets and chips, kebabs, hot dogs etc they are all in the activity area which was slightly annoying as you have to go over there to get snacks, its under a little subway so you do have to get dressed again to go there instead of just walking up to our bar to get it. I do think this is one thing that they should change, other than that it was an amazing holiday, we met some lovely people. even couple's that were there without children, was an all round excellent hotel for anyone. They have fireworks on Tuesdays, and entertainment every evening. The children really enjoyed it. Went to the other restaurants during our stay, you get a visit to the Mexican, Italian and greek grill. Italian and Mexican were amazing, greek & grill was ok but im not really one for grilled food. They have a shop on site but for the lilo's etc they are quite expensive, there is a shop just outside of the hotel that has them for half the price. We will definitely be returning as we all loved it and had amazing weather while we were there.More

Amazing, Fantastic, Faultless!
Amazing Rooms. Water park was fantastic. Staff and Reps was out of this world, they do such amazing job.My 2 year old and 4 year old loved everything about the place especially the reps Kris, Nathan, Polly, Daniel, Leonie, Lewis (The Parrot!), Alex and all the others. My 4 year old Henry loved the kids clubs he has not stopped going on about them since he got back. The entertainment for the kids and adults of the evenings was amazing. Even when I got asked to get up on stage and I acted the fool it was brilliant. The water polo was great and football was great. The Jersey Tones and Kevin Simm (Liberty X) was fantastic entertainment and the fact they stayed around and talked to all the holiday makers was brilliant. All in all it was amazing, I cannot find one fault, we met some amazing people who are now friends who we are keeping in contact with now. We cannot fault one thing about the place and we are looking to book up for next year already. I cannot wait to go back to this amazing place!More

Superb all round stay! Fantastic!
The brief summary: Good-standard accommodation. Excellent water-park and pools (although water can be on the chilly-side!). Great hotel, bar and waiting staff. Exceptional First Choice Kids Club and entertainment staff - what a fantastic job they do! Perfect for families - this place has all the ingredients for a fantastic family holiday. Great value for money when you consider everything you get included. Our second stay at Holiday Village Rhodes - we never normally go back to hotels, this is the exception! Travelling with a three-year-old and six-month-old meant we decided to adopt a 'go with what you know approach'. Glad we did. This September we stayed for 11 nights in the Deluxe side of the hotel. In Deluxe you get a blue wristband rather than green. This gives access to the Deluxe guests only pool, pool-bar, and clubhouse restaurant. The Staff: The First Choice Kids Club and Entertainment staff are incredible. I cannot speak highly enough of them or thank them enough for their hard work. Our son's personal favourites were Day Time Chris, Evie (swim academy), Lauren & Joel (football academy) and Lewis (The Parrot!). He also loved Polly Pocket & Nutty Nathan in 'Live & Loud'. However, the strength of the team really is even greater than the sum of its parts and they all work together, tirelessly and with such enthusiasm to ensure you have the best possible time. How on earth Nathan can still dance the Live & Loud dance like its the first day of the season when in truth its 5 months in and nearly the end of the season is anyone's guess; amazing! Everyone is so kind and polite and do so much to make every kid feel special. They are all professional and treat the parents with respect; you feel really safe and happy that any time your child is in Kids Club they are being looked after and having a good time. As the hotel was relatively quiet when we were there (around 80% occupancy apparently) a lot of the activities weren't swamped with kids which allowed the staff to really show the kids involved real attention - Henry's swimming came on leaps and bounds, and his football skills definitely improved. I enjoyed the daily water polo matches and other challenges which Chris got us doing (60 second tests!); and even played football a couple of times while i was there. The only one very very slight critique of the programmes is that there aren't many sessions for under 3's; last year our eldest was only two and was desperate to be involved in activities but wasn't able to, and i heard the same from some guests with kids aged 2 this year, so do bear this in mind if you have really little ones. There is a crÃ¨che and a 30 mins 'stay and play' but otherwise there isn't much for the under 2's except the small play-park on site and a tiny toddler toys section near the Greek & Grill. The Evening Entertainment was good during our stay, and Polly, Nathan, Daniel, Alex and Leone work super hard and late every night. From Live and Loud to the various productions they put on (Musicality, PopTastic, HV Unplugged, Anthem Festivals etc.), there really is something to keep everyone entertained. We really enjoyed HV's Got Talent - Chris singing Daniel Merriweather's Red and Lewis (The Parrot) Nick and James with their '4 chords' song medley (YouTube 4 chords). Yes, the game-shows are slightly cheesy, and slightly cringe-worthy at times, but you are on holiday so take it for what it is! Additionally there are the 'fly-out' acts - we saw Two Minds Combined, The Jersey Tones, Kevin Simm (Liberty X), African Acrobats and a UK Comic/Singer. There really is a great variety of entertainment, again all included in the cost of the holiday. As for the hotel staff team they really help to make it what it is. Special thanks to Manolis, Thomas and Alex in the management team; to Nikos (The Captain!), Maria and Sofia in the Deluxe restaurant; to Kiki and George (main restaurant); Christopher (Mexican restaurant) and all the restaurant staff in general. In the bars George and Vassilas (entertainment bar), George and Robert (Sports Bar), and Nikos (Deluxe pool-bar). It was reassuring to see consistency across the staff, with almost all of the same staff as last year. This obviously shows it is a well liked place to work, and the managers look after the staff. The Food: In the Deluxe restaurant, for your evening meal you order a-la-carte from a menu and are waited/served unlike in the main buffet restaurant. We ate there once and it was nice to be waited on, however, for the majority of the holiday we chose to eat our evening meal in the main self-service buffet restaurant as our eldest child wanted to watch the excellent entertainment which you can do from the balcony/outside tables. All of the food across the hotel is of a high-standard, and the selection in the main restaurant is quite staggering. It was a real challenge to choose what to eat every day! They also have 'show-cooking', so although many of the items served in the restaurant do not change day-to-day, this meant there was always a different speciality dish being cooked every meal time - a nice touch. We also ate in the Tex-Mex and Italian restaurants during our stay, in both the food was excellent - I had Rib-eye steak in the Mexican and Beef medallions in the Italian. There is also a snack-bar outlet near the main activity reception and sports bar, serving burgers, hot-dogs, pizzas, nuggets, chips, souvlaki, gyros, baguettes, salads etc. Nice if you want something quick or you fancy a light lunch/want to avoid a big meal at lunch. All in all, we couldn't fault the food. It isn't gourmet - so don't expect it - but it is of a high standard considering the quantities they have to prepare, and as said the selection means there really is something for even the fussiest of eaters. The drinks are also fine, the local beer served is decent, and Rose wine was drinkable according to my wife. All of the spirits in the bars are locally produced and not the big brands, but if you want those, they are available to purchase at extra cost if you so wish. Our experience was that the local stuff was ok. Obviously as always in Europe its free-pour and not measured, but you can obviously dictate to the bar staff how much you want! The various bars all serve ice-cream, slushy drinks and juices for the kids so they are also well covered! The Pools: There are no shortage of pools at this hotel - we spent our time divided between the Pirate ship (water park), Small Heated, Deluxe and Activity Pools. The only one we didn't use was the relax pool (same as the Deluxe and Activity pools effectively). The pools can be on the chilly side; they aren't heated (with the exception of the small lessons pool), but be brave and dive straight in and within moments you are fine. Our eldest did complain of coldness occasionally, but most of the time he was having too much fun to notice the temperature! The water park is relatively small, but in essence it has exactly what you need and being on site, you can dip in and out of it as you please. The lazy river and slides were a favourite of mine, and my son loved the pirate ship and its slides. There are lifeguards on the various pools but in all honesty how intensively they are watching guests is questionable. The lifeguard in the Deluxe pool spent most of his time sat at the bar chatting rather than watching the pool, and almost all of the staff in the water park are sat on their phones texting. However, it is reassuring that they are there I guess, but don't bank on them saving your drowning child (but if you are anything like us then you won't be taking your eyes off your little ones these days anyway)! The rooms: Having previously stayed in the Relax section last year, I can say that the actual rooms in the Deluxe section are not substantially different to those in the activity or relax sections - the only additions being 2 TV's (instead of 1), a PlayStation PS3 console, uprated shower with body jets, stocked mini-bar (although this isn't replenished) and bathrobes. Other than that, equivalent rooms are the same throughout the hotel. The rooms are of a high standard, with very large and comfortable beds. We had a family room with a sliding partition. Note - in Deluxe, all non-swim up rooms are on the first floor. This is not the case in the relax or activity (last year we had a ground floor family room in the relax section). A few holiday-makers did not know this and were annoyed at having to lug buggies and belongings up the 20 or so steps to their rooms, so i thought it was worth including here. The websites and travel agents aren't great at clarifying this, so be sure you consider this when booking if stairs don't work for you! Live Sports You aren't on holiday to watch TV, but if you are like me then you want to be able to keep up with the Football from home. The rooms and hotel sports bar are equipped with OTE sport which shows Premier League and Champions League games live, so football coverage is available. Additionally, less than a 5 minute walk away from the hotel is the Star Bar. Here they have 10+ screens and the ability to show 7 games simultaneously from across the world. If there is a game you want to watch, if its on TV they will find it. Their level of coverage is incredible. They also show the Rugby World Cup on ITV if you want to catch that while you are away (hotel doesn't have any rugby coverage). Local beers at â¬3.50, Magners at â¬5, so not too expensive either! Internet The WiFi is a bit hit and miss here in all honesty, but it has improved since last year. Don't expect fibre-optic speeds, but when you have a good connection it is perfectly acceptable. You can connect in your room, but sometimes it isn't always possible to get a great signal and it can be very sensitive - i.e. move 1m and suddenly you will find a sweet spot in your room! That said, I was able to download the newspaper every day but i didn't use it for much else than daily email checking. The internet is better when you are near the reception areas - especially in the activity reception, sports bar and main restaurant - so it makes sense to pop there if you have anything important to do on-line. All in all, the Holiday Village concept is great for families, and at HV Rhodes it really is a polished product in nice surroundings. The overall package and facilities can only be rated at 5 star, the rooms are probably 3+/4* in my opinion, but the overall experience you get here really is 5* all the way! We wouldn't hesitate to come back here again, and would recommend it to families without question. Probably not the place for a romantic couples break but for anyone with kids its a must visit.More

I can not rate this place enough. Everything from start to finish was absolutely fantastic. The staff must literally work 24/7 to keep the hotel to the standard it is. The food is amazing. Without a doubt the best all inclusive we have been. The staff are brilliant with the children, our daughter made a special friend in the restaurant ð Night time entertainment is brilliant for children and adults, they managed to even get my husband involved. We also had Fireworks one night. Pools are great (although cold), never once struggled to get a sunbed. Not much going on around the area itself but you do not need to leave the hotel. Really sorry to leave, will be going back next year. ðððððððððððððð Thanks for an amazing stay xx More
