You can expect non-stop activities, loads of pools and an adventure splash park at this five-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 five-minute walk away, too.

Really lovely family holiday.
This was a fabulous place to go with 2 little ones. Our toddler loved it. The rooms were nice and clean and service friendly. The food was the usual all inclusive fayre, but decent. The restaurants were nice enough, but the booking system was a bit naff. More
Great family location
We visited in September/October and it was still very busy especially with families with young children. Our Son aged 7 years old had the opportunity to do lots of things including archery, pool games, kids club, disco. Entertainment staff were great especially the males. Hotel rooms were lovely we were upgraded from family section to relax section but I would say rooms were nicer in the family section but I would say the pool area and restaurant in the relax area were quieter and more relaxing. Great family holiday wouldn't recommend for couples though too busy and noisy.More
Fantastic.....we are coming back next year
We stayed for 2 weeks and were a bit weary at first as we have never done an all inclusive holiday village before. However.....it was just fantastic !!! and my 3 year old has asked to come back for his birthday next June which we have said yes to. Okay.....so let's get the room for improvements out if the way first. - Pools were FREEZING but once you're in you do get used to it - There was a sickness bug going around at the time but we managed to escape that this time - Food towards the end of our holiday in the main buffer went downhill. I think they were closing down the following week - Getting a booking for the restaurants was difficult -wifi around the activity pool was non existent Now let's get to the good bits -Hotel us immaculate including the grounds. These people work around the clock tidying and cleaning. Our room was spotless everyday and fresh towels whenever you need them -Mini bar and bottles of water stocked up everyday -Buffet was amazing. Something for everone. The kids buffet was fantastic too - Kids entertainment was soooooo good. My son loved watching peppa pig on the big screen every night. The widgets are so cool. The entertainment staff and kids club know the kids by thier names. - Kids club is AMAZING. My son had an awful experience in a previous Thompson kids club and cried his eyes out at the suggestion of kids club. Amanda the manager eased him in....made sure he was well looked after. He loved it and every morning rushed to get in. The parties are great too. I have never seen my boy so happy to go to kids club. Fantastic job !!! Well done and keep up the amazing work ! - Kids activity pools with pirate ship and slides is just brilliant. I had a few goes myself ;-)...i didn't have the guts to go down the adult slides...they were huge ! -Management are great and it was great to see the Ops manager at breakfast greeting everyone in and helping out. He's not one just to sit behind a desk. You don't see that very often All in all it's the best family holiday we have had so we look forward to next year for our repeat visit. Mrs and Mrs BoxMore
Lovely hotel top service ( what you would expect for the money)
We had a lovely time here was also came with our friends and there children , as a whole the hotel is top class including the entertainment so you kind of get what you pay for as it's not a cheap holiday . It's nice to go to a place that lives up to their expectations! The location is not great as you are about 30 mins to Rhodes town and 30 mins Lindos you are best to hire a car from Neil who works in the hotel otherwise taxi will cost a lot More
Spent a week here during half term October 2016 (2 adults + 2 kids). We stayed in a swim up in the deluxe area in block 4600 (room 4603). The deluxe area offers guests a quieter pool and a more upmarket restaurant, and is exclusively for those who have paid the extra to stay there (as depicted by your wristband) We have previously stayed at Holiday Village Majorca and Blue Lagoon Kos and this hotel is definitely up there with them in terms of quality. Good points: Hotel facilities were excellent Food was excellent, although buffets could get samey if you were there for 2 weeks. Weather â even at the end of October it was mid 20âs, warm and blue skies every day â perfect! Evening entertainment was cheesy and great and our kids looked forward to it! We used the kids clubs twice and the kids enjoyed them. Great water park with lazy river, 3 adult water slides (fast, medium & slow), kids water slides. Be aware of height restrictions which are oddly measured to the shoulder and not top of head â it caught some parents out and meant disappointed kids. There were little kiddy slides and a splash pool knee high so something for everyone. Join the Facebook group âRhodes Holiday Village â Kolymbia âOriginal Pageâ. It has a lot of information and people post useful stuff all the time. Although itâs an unofficial page not endorsed by the hotel or First Choice, the Hotel management and First Choice reps do read it too which can be helpful (read on regarding my complaint below). If you can, visit Rhodes Old Town and/or Lindos. Both are around 30 minutes away in opposite directions but itâs nice to get out and see some of the real parts of the island and what they have to offer. We hired a car from reception, very convenient and affordable. Bad points or room for improvement: The evening entertainment area was very cramped. Chairs are literally back to back, not sure why the area was so intensely arranged but I usually ended up stacking a few chairs most evenings immediately around us to create some space. In October, you will need long sleeves when outdoors at night as it can be a bit breezy. Specialty restaurants were fantastic (Italian, Greek, Mexican) but to ensure you get the day/time you want then you need to ensure you book at 8am up to 2 days before. This can be done on a smartphone or at terminals in reception. All of the specialty restaurants were great with the exception of the Mexican. We felt the service at the Mexican was lacking â they werenât attentive enough and our food had already arrived before weâd even been asked what to drink. The way and style of how the food was served was different to how we are accustomed to in the UK. Maybe it was the Greek way of doing Mexican food but it didnât work for us (too much meat and not enough wraps). Incidentally the Mexican restaurant is across the road from the main hotel complex in the âTropicalâ area. Itâs not well signed but to get there, turn right out of the hotel main entrance (not deluxe reception, the main reception), go straight over the crossroads and then the Tropical area will come up on your left (white building). There is a gate to get back into the main complex which you will see when you come out of the Tropical area which is straight ahead of you when exiting the Tropical area and you can use your room key to open the gate. There is a pathway to the beach but the local beach is quite pebbly. Once at that beach, if you continue left along the beach and walk about 10-15 minutes, go up the stairs you come to and bear right once at the top of the stairs, then you will come to a lovely little sandy beach in a harbour area with sunbeds, parasols and a little bar/cafÃ© area. Otherwise, the local beach has a lot of shingle even in the sea so if you plan to use this beach, ensure you take some beach shoes with you. Be aware if you have a swim up with a Jacuzzi. We had room 4302 initially but the Jacuzzi didnât work and was not much warmer than the pools. From what I read on FaceBook there were a few others complaining of the same. We did complain to the First Choice reps and after some deliberation with the reps we were moved to a different room. What was annoying is that this wasnât checked prior to our arrival or communicated to us that it wasnât working so our expectations were somewhat dashed. Had it have been July or August then it wouldnât have been an issue, but because the temps of the pools were somewhat cooler than peak season, a warm hot tub would have been welcoming. Furthermore our room was north facing so we were in the shade all day. Again, in July/Aug probably welcoming to escape the heat of the sun but in October with weaker sun we felt a bit ripped off. Incidentally, upon arrival in our room we had no toilet paper and the shower didnât work properly. These matters were rectified relatively quickly by the hotel but again, disappointing that no one had checked these things ahead of us occupying the room. Itâs only minor but annoying and not what you expect from a top-end holiday resort. Initially it was difficult to get action out of the reps to rectify the hot tub situation but after a few meetings with them, I also called the 24/7 helpline number in the UK and posted my gripes on Facebook to the unofficial page and they did actually visit my room and offer us the chance to move room and compensate us for being without the hot tub. We were moved to a south facing room without a hot tub and we were happy to go without the hot tub in return for the sun â after all this is why we come on holiday to get some sun on our backs! The reps and hotel management (Thomas Moffat) did go out of their way after that to ensure we were satisfied and felt like we had the personal touch. Iâd much rather everything have been right in the first place thoughâ¦ The only other thing is the price. We came in October as we had to rebook from Tunisia in May after the atrocities of what had happened there last year. We had to pay Â£1k extra over Tunisia to come to Rhodes and didnât get our choice of dates either so we had to have what was left but at just over Â£3k it wasnât cheap. If you come during peak season then you are looking at over Â£6k for a week for 2+2, worth it? Iâm not sure but for us, paying Â£3k in October we had great weather, good times and the resort was relatively quiet. No usual battle for sunbeds like you get during peak season. Although from what others have said from previous years the weather at the end of October can be hit and miss â guess we were lucky! Would we return again? If the price was right then yes but I fear it could be the high price that would keep us away. The place is great though so nothing against it - you will have a great time here!More
