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.

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

ANOTHER GREAT HV
This was my 5th holiday village. Been to Teneriffe,Kos,Turkey and Costa Del Sol before. Everyone says it is the best but I found it to be just as nice as the others. If you like HV 's book and go - you will as always have a great time. Like all the others it does what it says on the tin ! We stayed in the Deluxe area in the 2nd level although we spent all our time across the road at the main pool area mostly because my kids met other kids and wanted to play with them. As we were Deluxe we got to use the a la carte restraunt and my wife and both think it was worth the extra money. We were there 9-16 October 2016(Scottish school holidays for some) so maybe it is not a true reflection on peak season but it was never busy. Very relaxing when you have kids. The staff across the whole complex were the most pleasant I have ever encountered on holiday anywhere I've been. I am not one for mentioning staff members specifically but the chef in the evening in the a la carte was brilliant. Every night he shouted and waved to me , he would ask me what I had picked for a main course and if he thought I had made a bad decision ( I chose chicken ) he would make me what he thought was best ( beef) - this was over and above my original choice ! The only complaint I can think of is that the pools were cold. If we go again I would consider a swim up room. However most of the ones I saw did not get the sun on them. On big pro compared to the Turkey HV is that you get ice cream at meal times. The ice cream during the day was from machines and didn't taste that nice - I think it was just cheap stuff to be fair. Would definetly go back - although it is a bit pricey !!!More
Brilliant family holiday
This hotel is perfect for families and everyone I spoke to said this is the best holiday village they have ever visited. All staff were amazing and made you feel welcome, from arriving at midnight to the time you go home. We booked a swim up room in the relax area, the activities area is a bit noisy and busy so defiantly worth the extra and if your even posher go for the deluxe. (looked lovely) The rooms were very spacious, cleaned daily and the mini bar is stocked daily as well. The only downside to the swim up rooms were the swimming pools were so cold, when asked about this "Its colder in October". The entertainment staff especially however all the reps work extremely hard but my little girl (3 years old) lived the whole 2 weeks for the shows at night. Singing on stage and meeting the widgets were the highlight of her holiday. The food is really good for all inclusive, with so much choice and themed evenings meaning you had something different every night. Getting booked into the restaurants is a bit of a nightmare even though we did eat at the Greek and Mexican restaurant, we couldn't get into the Italian but again the food was excellent. Overall I would highly recommend this place and in the wife's words "we will be coming back" I have no complaints other than the pool water, an excellent family venue that has everything you need.More
