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 cab ride away, too.

Does exactly what it says on the tin.......
HV Rhodes is about your expectations. It is a good 3 star standard hotel, that caters for the determined masses very well indeed. It is NOT international 5 star, but it does not pretend to be. When I was a child, I went to Butlins - and loved it. This year, I took my kids to HV Rhodes and my kids loved it. Pool scene is hectic and crowded - great for the kids. Lazy rivers with teenagers "bombing" everywhere - tick. All inclusive seeking holiday makers determined to get their monies worth out of "free" food and drink - tick. Lively and hard working entertainments - tick! Rooms, very clean, on small side but modern. We had deluxe (not swim up) which had a nice dividing screen for the 2 young children and decent balcony. Personally, I would not want a swim up - no privacy and very little actual sun coverage. For what it has to do, this hotel meets the demands that First Choice must place on it. And don't get me wrong, this is not necessarily a negative review, you simply have to go with your eyes open, its a decent family package holiday. This is not a restful luxurious hotel. Tips from me - gym is poor, dirty and most equipment broke or missing (but you will perhaps be the only person it there.....) Food at main restaurant is actually outstanding, if you wait until after the squabbles and queues have died down and eat at the crazily late time of say 7.30pm (yes really people queue from 6pm!!!) then you will be fine. Book the A La carte restaurants the day you arrive or you will not get in - management take note, you should use these options more and we only learnt about the dine around option on the last day! These restaurants should do more than sitting as are really rather good. The pool scene at the Tropical area is very quiet and peaceful, you may even be the only people there. Final piece would be to give â¬10 to your maid on the first day, explain you like a lie in on holiday, otherwise so will ignore the do not disturb and persist on making up your room from 8am (understandable as most Brits have reserved sun-beds and are having breakfast by then) Special mention to Lauren and Mike from the football, excellent with the kids at football, very professional and attentive. Also Nicky, Guy and Rebecca from the swimming - my kids loved their time there and coaching really was of a high standard. Thank you all so much. Eyes open people - it does what it says on the tin...... More

Great stay - Tropical area
I visited here with my family in the beginning of August 2014. The people working here were fantastic and made our holiday to a really nice and relaxing experience. We stayed at Tropical and would go back here any time. The people in the reception were always smiling and helpful, Stavros making pancakes and omelettes for us each morning and the others working in the restaurant/pool bar at Tropical area were always giving us top service. It was also housekeeping twice a day and they did a fantastic job making the room nice and shining. The breakfast atmosphere in Tropical is relaxing and very nice. It is also a more quiet pool area here than in the Activity and also Relax-area. Food in the big buffet-restaurant is varied and good. We tried the Mexican and Greek A la Carte restaurants and loved the food at the Mexican, the Greek was also good, but it was quite noisy because of the nearby evening entertainment.More

Back again...Better than ever !!!
Just got back from two weeks at HV Rhodes, Our second trip here. This is a fantastic 5 star family holiday resort with masses of great facilities for all the family. We stayed in the deluxe side which as usual was awesome. The two Georges (Big and Little) were brilliant and reps Stephanie and Hannah could not do enough. Our room was kept lovely and clean every day. What is great about the deluxe side is because it is small everyone gets to know each other which is great. My daughter did Rookie Lifeguard with Rebecca from swim school and loved it. She also did the High Rope course and spent hours on the slides at the waterpark. We came with friends for the first week and it there was a birthday midway through that week. Rachael the Guest Relations Manager arranged a personalised birthday cake at short notice which not only looked good but tasted fantastic. Thanks Rachael. One thing we did not like last year was the entertainment which we thought had been badly timed and the shows to be brutally honest pretty rubbish. Not so this year. The timings of the kids entertainment was spot on and the variety of shows and slickness of the on-site crew was way way beyond what we expected after last year. Kudos to Rory, Paige, Hannah, Lee and especially Jimmy who the kids loved. The only show that was rubbish was the Robbie Williams tribute act. The kids did not bother with the kids club as they had such a good time with their mates by the pool. The food in the deluxe restaurant was lovely but we went over to the Activity buffet restaurant a few times and that was lovely too, just like being on a cruise ship with the choice, show cooking going on etc. I have read a couple of people criticize the drink on offer. You will not get top shelf spirits or premium lagers but IT does say local drinks in the brochure so you know what you are getting. The local beer, VAP was fine anyway and the cocktails made by the bar guys were awesome. We had a fantastic two weeks and would recommend this hotel to anyone with youngish kids. The only thing I could criticize and it is nit picking was the Wi-Fi was in and out but that is it. There is not much outside the hotel but Rhodes town and Lindoes are each 25km away and worth a visit. Now for a couple of tips; 1) Get a second key from reception and leave it plugged in the room 24-7. The air con takes a while to work but leaving it in all the time gives you a lovely cool room to walk into. 2) For younger kids who cannot swim I would recommend staying in the deluxe side or relax side as both of these have pools that slope into the pool like a beach meaning that it is a lot safer for younger kids. 3) If staying deluxe do NOT buy any inflatables, lie-lows etc as these are handed down as people leave. We had 7 inflatables and did not pay for any of them.More

A kids paradise (great activities for them)very small rooms, but good facilities...and great SPA treatments:-)
We arrived really late due to Thomson flight delays (2 adults and 2 kids aged 7 and 10 y.o), the check in went very smoothly, and the glass of champagne (&orange juice)we were offered went down a treat. The staff is generally lovely and really trying to be helpful:-)We got our wrist bands, before heading to the restaurant, in case we wanted some snacks before bed.There was some nice salads/soups and bread on display ( it was after midnight)... We were just thirsty, and sampled some "fruit juices"-sugary stuff created from powder.Not the best, but more on this later. We found our family room in the activity side easily ( and our Thomson/first choice rep was walking around, in case people got lost in the resort which was very kind:-) Our room was ridiculously small and the main letdown of this holiday.We usually book for "family room" which means usually two rooms separated by a corridor or a door.This does not exist in Holiday Village.The best you get-deluxe family room- is a sliding paper thin ""door"" to separate the area. So we had one queen bed for us, parents.And the kids had to share a double one.I could hold my eldest' hand while in bed...( and more importantly I had to bear the snoring noises from both sides for two weeks, so NO I was not impressed with the room!) The lack of space means that we were surrounded by our mess/suitcases but it was globally a joyous chaos!The other easy improvement for H.V to consider is that there is a kettle in the room, with two sachets of coffee and a bottle of mineral water on display to welcome you.We were also delighted to open the fridge and see a can of beer, two non diet sodas, and a big bottle of fruit juice.This really is a nice touch but NEVER get replenished in the two weeks holiday! So bring your instant coffee/tea bags, guys....... This is a kids paradise: the Aqua park is fab and safe.The pools are clean and no safety hazard apart from the missing tiles in the pool behind the activity one ( on which it is easy to hurt your toes).There are kids clubs for all ages, and you have the option to pay more for your kids to take part in "Football academy", "Razzamataz""( their "perform" school), or Swimming school... Mine two are Footie mad and into stage schools...so they went there the first week and one of them did swimming the second week!These are great.Really nice teachers, very approachable, smily and dedicated people.Very impressed with the swimming (Nicki was My 7 y.o teacher). The regular kids club are good with "repetitive"activities (our two were not convinced, but went for the "high ropes"( kind of Go ape climbing, monkeys activity), and "raft building" proved really fun! The animation team is smashing; Rory, Paige, Hannah Lee, Jimmy and Talkie Techy are just full-of-beans and hilarious.The evening shows are pretty good when it is their work, but pathetic when they force some lousy number on us (various singers/magicians etc.).The tribute to Lady Gaga was good tho!! The day time activities are all right, I did a bit of aqua Fit ( nothing strenuous)and did the quizz most days.They are not the heavy type; if you don't wanna move, they will not drag you over:-) What I really appreciated is NO ONE came to sell us excursions every five minutes like it happens in some hotels. The main restaurant is too small for the amount of guests but the staff is smily and efficient. The drinks are self-service ( unless they really like you:-P).The wines (all colours) are of a very average/mediocre quality but you can have prosecco anytime, so just enjoy, ladies! In the restaurant the kids have their own self service in a corner, and it really is nice for them to just go and pick up what they like ( at a much lower level than the adults one!) Restaurant a la carte:the best is the Italian one ( even tho the menu could be greatly improved with typical Italian dishes). The Mexican restaurant is in the posh side of the hotel, worth a visit. The SPA staff is highly qualified and offer very good quality treatments ( and trust me, I have been to an incredible number of SPA worldwide!!).Zoe is the beauty therapist in charge (she speaks several languages and is very professional) and her sister is a qualified Physio to whom I went for one massage and I ended up buying 3:-).As a health practitioner qualified in massage, I am pretty difficult to impress!The beach is 10 minutes walk from there and not the nicest, still worth a visit.If you like beaches take a taxi and go to a sandy one, 20 minutes away! My kids enjoyed the aqua park and we felt relaxed to let them play around as everybody there-pretty much-are either parents or kids and the atmosphere is friendly, fun and safe.Which is why my children are appalled I do not rate this holiday a 5stars!!!More
Great for kids
We have just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday at Rhodes holiday village. The staff are amazing at this place and do all they can to ensure you have the best time. My daughter is a coeliac and I was initially really concerned about how we were going to manage her diet. I needn't have worried. The executive chef was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and went out of his way to make sure my daughter ate well and stayed well. I am extremely grateful to him and his staff. The food in general is delicious although the dining area can get a bit busy at times. Our room was comfortable and very clean. I am usually very fussy when it comes to cleanliness and I had no worries here. The hotel runs like clockwork and the management team were really great and work so hard. There is so much for kids to do. The kids clubs are great and evening entertainment was great. All the I five live team were brilliant and had so much energy. Lee was our particular favourite. Such a great dancer and loads of fun. All in all a great holiday although this place is really for kids. The local area is a little run down but if you are happy to spend your days hanging out at the pool and enjoying the hotel facilities that's no problem. Thank you holiday village a RhodesMore
