Amazing week at HV Rhodes
Upon arrival (at roughly 2am) we were checked in quickly and efficiently and told we had complimentary sandwiches and snacks waiting in our room, which was a lovely touch. The room was amazing we stayed in the relax area with a swim up room and honestly it was worth every penny. The room was big and spacious with a king size bed, a large bathroom along with a stand alone shower and a decent size flat screen tv on the wall. The food is the best I have ever experienced before at an all inclusive there is nothing to fault here. They cater for absolutely everyone including those with dietary needs. (Signs with glutton free, nut free etc next to all dishes). If people do complain abut the food in this hotel then they should just go for a self catering holiday as I don't think you would ever get better than HV Rhodes. I would definitely recommend the Mexican al a carte it was just fantastic! The location of the hotel was good. A short walk away from kolimbia centre and the bus was reasonably key cheap to get in to Rhodes/ lindos etc 3,50euros. The entertainment team work tirelessly to make sure all us miserable Brits are enjoying ourselves all the time. (Which us a hard job) They sing and dance put on game shows/ bingo every night and they truly are an asset to the hotel. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rhodes! We loved it and one day I hope to return!More

Awesome family holiday
Just back from a fantastic holiday and feeling very sad it's over! This was our second visit to a HV resort having stayed in the one in majorca last year. We had a swim up room 2302 on activity side. All in all we preferred Rhodes despite loving Mallorca too! Really loved everything about the holiday and would highly recommend to all families. I was with my 3 year old and my husband. Resort is lovely and well maintained. Lots of pools and the splash park is great. Nice playground too. We were on the activity side in a swim up room and enjoyed being near the action and music. But if you don't want music then go to the relax side. You can use both anyhow if you want to swap between the two and it's not far to walk. The main thing that stood out for me was the quality of the entertainment. Lee, Paige and Hanna were the main hosts and we all really enjoyed the shows. Didn't get to stay up to see the adult bits but heard them from our room and they sounded fab...really great singing...had a little boogie on the terrace while my son slept! Food was great loads of variety very day and great service, everything very clean and tidy in the restaurant. Only managed one a la carte restaurant the Mexican but enjoyed it (my son refused to visit the others as he wanted to eat dinner quickly and see the widget show!) Pools were fairly quiet in September and always plenty of loungers free. Hired a car for a day..There is a guy in reception who can arrange car hire for you and is very helpful. Will help you plan an itinerary etc. Think it cost around 40 euros to hire a medium sized car like a vauxhall corsa for a day. Only down side is the spa. Compared to the one at HV mallorca it was very small and you could only visit the steam room and sauna once during your stay. So if you like spas mallorca is a better bet! Overall 100% recommend for families. Lots of couples there too but I'd probably want to stay in deluxe area if I was without kids....More

HV Rhodes, beautiful but not a 5*
We recently stopped at HV Rhodes (activity) in September (4 adults and a 3 year old). We booked pretty much last minute so all the swim up rooms had been taken but honestly I can't see the point in spending the extra £500 for one as the don't get much sun, there really open and there's no privacy. The weather was great and I'd advise anyone with young children to go around this time. We arrived at the hotel around 3pm and was kindly greeted and given a glass of bubbly, our suitcases were sent up to our rooms and much it our delight, our rooms were incredible! So modern and so clean! Credit to the cleaners who we left a tip on our departure. However the mini bar is not restocked and I had to ask for them to restock the tea and milk. WARNING to those with young children- there is no lock on the inside of the room, much to my horror, my 3 year old opened the door and ran out, thankfully to next door with our in laws were staying. I spent the rest of the holiday with eyes in the back on my head. The location of the hotel isn't great, there's not a lot to do around this area, just a few all inclusive hotels. Theres a beach around 10-15 minute walk however this Is a pebble beach. There's one bar called the star bar which is great for football fans and karaoke lovers! There's also so much to do for the kids here! Not so great if your looking for culture as you could find this in Blackpool however we ended up there 3 times. The pool's look amazing, especially at night, however theres so much debris, dirt and mould in the pool by us. And it's freezing!!! As adults we adjusted after around 10 minutes, but unfortunately for my 3 year old He couldn't stay in long as he's lips would go blue. As for bagging a sun bed, we never had an issue despite many being reserved for the whole day. The splash park is great for both adults and children! The food is amazing! Every night something different, even for the fussiest of eaters there's so much to pick from! You can literally feel your clothes getting tighter from over indulging! We never ate lunch in main restaurant, we'd just use the snack bar. The food at the snack bar is also mouth watering consisting of your typical lunch, chips, burgers, hot dogs, salads, pizzas. In the evening in the main restaurant, there's a dress code and as a man you can't wear vests or sports ware but you can wear T-shirt and shorts. Your never sat at the back in the room where you can see the entertainment unless your deluxe I noticed.oh and you have to get your own drinks! Good luck pulling a half a pint!! I never tried the wine but I heard it left a lot to be desired. I love my cocktails but i couldn't adjust them so stuck to local beer which was actually okay. (Thank god) Entertainment staff were so full of life and great with the kids!!! My son loved the evening entertainment. However I would suggest that the entertainment team maybe involve the children a little more in the activities as there's a lot of sitting down watching. My son just wanted to get involved so he'd get bored sometimes and we'd go to the park. But the widgets are a massive hit! We only watched the adult entertainment once but unfortunately you couldn't escape it over the activity side it was just so loud! From 10am-11pm just constant loud noise or music! It wasn't exactly the relaxing holiday I was hoping for. But again, maybe I should have looked into stopped over the relax side as it's so peaceful! A little more Greek would have been a massive bonus as the only thing Greek I experienced at this hotel was the food one night. Not any Greek music or culture in site. I'd recommend but I wouldn't return, but thank you HV Rhodes, it's been an experience!More

All about the fun
We chose Holiday Village Rhodes after reading all the reviews and wanted somewhere special for us all to go together (4 adults and a 3 year old). Got to say we weren’t disappointed and had a great time. Very well run considering the size of the resort, spotlessly clean and the staff are amazing, yes the welcome is first class, our grandson was made to feel really special. We stayed in the activity side, our two rooms were fine although our shower floor was really showing signs of age, all stained? So easy to rectify with a bit of bleach, not knocking the cleaners though they were very good and worked very hard – it’s just not what I expected from a five star. Towels also showing signs of age – again expected a bit more luxury. We had 3 different problems with the room, the sink plug was faulty, batteries in the remote were dead and the door handle was so stiff – blimey needed to be as big as the hulk to get in our door. Rang reception and on every single occasion all problems sorted in double quick time – amazing. Excellent. If we went again we would probably book the relax side as the constant music blaring could be a bit grating at times, although as the week went on (and as we chilled out) it became less of a problem and we all found ourselves to be singing to it at times. The activity side pool could get quite a bit of debris in at times. Inflatables are everywhere much to our grandson’s delight he had great fun with those (as we all did). That was a welcome bonus. Visiting in September we didn’t find a problem with sun beds and we visited practically every area, although would imagine different in the school holidays. We gave the slides a good “doing” which were loads of fun – although at 56 I don’t bounce so well now and did bang my bum bone quite hard – so be warned – still great fun though. Lots of smaller ones for the young ones oh and we were massive fans of the lazy river. That was excellent for chilling. We loved the water aerobics too - big thumbs up to Hannah for taking the class in the searing heat. Talking of the entertainers they were excellent, really made us all laugh and our grandson loved it. We found ourselves singing sprouts, sprouts let them all out during the week. We only ever stayed to watch the adult entertainment once however having a little one with us. George Michael tribute which wasn’t bad at all. Just one question why one earth do you have SO many tables and chairs all lumped together - bit of a nightmare for people making their way through those– surely a few could be stacked to the side when quieter. Just a thought? The drinks were ok – my daughter in law really loves cocktails she wasn’t that impressed with them but I had a few Pina Colada’s which were quite sufficient – but yeh not for devotees I would imagine. Food was excellent we were all so spoilt for choice and even my fussy other half found lots to eat (he did give the chocolate cake a good doing over most nights whoops) also our grandson ate well most days which is a result. We booked into the Mexican – on the actual day we found we had been accidently booked into the Italian which we didn’t want as couple of us not fans of which is a shame as the staff there were so attentive. The Manager got us in the very next night at the Mexican. The staff over there were just wonderful. (Food wasn’t quite up to what we expected but we still enjoyed it the visit). As I say the staff there were so lovely, it really does make it special. We went on one trip. It was a “pirate” ship and you sail to a beach – playing games along the way. Again the reps made it, they were brilliant. Giving (well a loan of) the children a sword and a hook each which they loved. It was a bit of a rip off – 35 euros each (roughly can’t quite remember) it was just a normal boat with a pirate flag. We did enjoy it though, the kids get to make a parent walk the plank and you get the choice to swim in the sea which was beautiful. I thought I would struggle as I burn easily but managed as there is plenty of shade on the boat. I did go up on the top deck for a while which resulted in me having a lovely big red mush later. Hopeless being fair sometimes ! All in all a really lovely holiday, we would recommend it yes, (in spite of my few moans although just being totally honest as we had paid enough !) – would recommend this hotel definitely. Great fun. Oh forgot the manager was there to say bye to us all on our departure and gave us all a bottle of water – bit of a nice touch we thought. A big massive thanks to all the very hardworking staff. Keep up the good work.More

Excellent Hotel and Staff
This is the second time I've stayed at a Holiday Village and I was over the moon! The hotel is stunning, beautiful pools that never felt crowded during the day and plenty of sun loungers available. The staff were amazing from Tina on Reception to Evi the restaurant hostess, always smiling, approachable and helpful. The food was great (and I'm a fussy eater). I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough especially for families. Not a lot to do in the evening so wouldn't visit if it was just me and my Partner but perfect for those family / group holidays.More
