Holiday Village Kos piles on a whole host of fun and games, with things like kids’ clubs and an activity pool. On top of that, it’s grabbed a top spot right by the beach.
Holiday Village Kos is a real all-rounder. As well as a hat-trick of pools, it throws up a huge list of sports and activities, and restaurants that tick off Italian, Greek and American food.
This place gets top marks for its location – there’s a sandy beach footsteps away, and a 15-minute walk will put you in the centre of Marmari.

if your expecting last years standards you will be disappointed!!
So after having the best holiday last year here at HV Kos we made the decision to return again May 2016 for 2 weeks. The hotel still is a fantastic place, the rooms still just as good last year lovely and clean, hotel staff lovely and friendly, TIP: if you want the family room this is the same option on first choice website as Double Room with Sliding Doors they charge an extra Â£300 for the family room which is the same room which is a con. The hotel were very accommodating we put in a request for 1 ground floor room and one room Above the ground floor room and when arrived we had the rooms we requested were given to us. (Always best to contact the hotel Directly and not through travel agents) Our room was again in the 600s block which is close to bar and pools great location and small walk to everywhere. The food in the Main Restaurant was good, but not as good as last year, last year there was so much more variety and they always had a special night like Italian night Mexican night Chinese night etc this year they had none of that which I missed definitely need to bring those back. But food was still good, the Pasta was amazing all good was lovely and fresh and plenty of it for everyone. A Big Thanks and shout out to Anastacia in the restaurant she remembered us from last year and she always was and is so good with my girls she would take them for walks around the restaurant and get them food and play and talk with them she was amazing always so happy and kind. We booked in for a meal at the American restaurant after great memories and expectations of last year we had high hopes, we booked on the electrical system the night before and when we got to the restaurant 5 mins ahead of our sitting on the day they had no record of our reservation so they sent us away and told us to return in 6 mins we came back and they gave us a table and was told someone would come with menus we waited 25 mins before we got restless no one came to serve us and no staff seemed to be around whatsoever so my husband made the decision to tell the chef which he sent someone 5 mins later, he gave us the menu and walked off now the menu was only little and you only had 4 mains to pick from everything else was buffet so we didn't need a lot of time... The waiter had been gone a good 15 mins we were at this point considering leaving it had been nearly an hour and still we hadn't even ordered, he finally came after my husband had to go get him. I asked if the steak sauce was spicy to which he replied it's nice it's sauce???! I said can you put it on the side I don't eat spicy food whatsoever, we ordered steak WELL DONE and a chicken burger he came back 5 mins later with our food which made me think this isn't freshly cooked the steak was covered in the sauce even though I asked for it on the side the wedges were over cooked it just wasn't pleasant to look at, he told me if I don't like the steak with sauce he will just give me another one I tasted it and it almost blew my socks off it was way too spicy I turned around to look for him and he was gone I just put my knife and fork down and said to my husband let's go! His meal was terrible too the chicken was tiny and the bun was huge the potato wedges were overdone it wasn't good at all complete disappointment we just got up and left there was no staff around so we couldn't give feedback so we left without eating the meal and went to the main restaurant. There was a wedding on in the American restaurant also which I found a bit unfair why didn't they close the restaurant to the rest of the holidayers and let them enjoy the restaurant to themselves, they apparently didn't like the food also as the whole wedding party were seen in the main restaurant afterwards getting my dinner!! The first choice reps were a lot more unprofessional the two guys at the desk didn't seem like they didn't want to sell any of the excursions whatsoever we came back and forth to the desk wanting to book trips and each time they would say nahh you don't want to do that I would say there's better things you can do with your money? Or Nooo the Greek night is inside it isn't very good or just no I wouldn't recommend you do it! And then I would say what do you recommend as everything I'm asking to do you say no and he says the volcano is pretty cool and that's it nothing to draw me in or tempt me to book they weren't very people persons AT ALL. The shorter guy one morning literally stunk of alcohol probably from the night before not professional in the slightest. The girl (sorry didn't get any names) was sassy and blunt we did a boat trip and it rained all day the sea was rough it should of been cancelled but it wasn't and we didn't get to enjoy the day at all but when she asked how we liked it and we told her we didn't enjoy it cos of the weather she was quick to cover herself and say we can't control the weather rather than speak to us in a nicer tone. If you take a short walk out of the hotel about 10-15 mins walk away there are some restaurants and shops and a place where you can book excursions, TIGAKI EXPRESS it's so much cheaper and it's for the same trips Thomson/first choice offer but for half the price and all children under the age of 6 go free! They even have so many more trips then what the reps have. We booked two trips from them, the coach collect you from hotel nr the bus stop it & they return you back no later then 5pm and the bus was so much nicer. The evening entertainment was OK but the HV Live Team weren't as entertaining as last year, we saw a few families from last year and they agreed. We didn't stay out as long it just wasnt the same. This year they had slush puppies watermelon, lime, strawberry, mango & raspberry TIP bring your own cup the cups they give are small and they are happy to refill your own cup whatever beverage you choose, the rooms all have fridge and a small freezer compartment so u can even chill your cups in room overnight. Please can the hotel provide bigger bowls for breakfast the bowls are far too small, I had to keep a soup bowl from the night before to be able to eat a decent portion. Please use the soup bowls for cereal also the other ones are far too small. All in all it was a great holiday but I think we came with the same expectations as last year and it wasn't quite the same so we came away a little disappointed. But I would still recommend it but for us I think it's time to try somewhere newMore
Wonderful holiday, disappointed by the on site shop
We are half way through our holiday and we have been very happy here in our first week. The hotel itself is great for the family, plenty to do, the kids (4 & 3) absolutely love the kids club which means we get a holiday as well. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the wifi works fine all over which is an improvement on a previous visit. The pools are a little cold but are getting warmer but i guess this is a disdvantage of coming earlier in the season. Now the reason for me writing this review before the end of our holiday is due to an experience in the on site shop by the pool. We purchase a number of things from here including a water shooter for our son. This said shooter broke on the second day of him using it. I went back to the shop to ask for a replacement and was by the shopkeeper in his words "these are plastic, rubbishy they will break all over. I work for this" he refused to exchange or refund. We spent about 80 euros in this shop and would have expected a bit more gratitude. Needless to say we won't spend any more in there. What I will say is that if you take a 10-15 minute walk into marmari itself, there is a large supermarket which sells everything. In comparison, they sell similar water shooters for about 3-4 euros rather than 8 euros and inflatables for half the price as well. So my advice to you is to have a walk down to marmari and visit the supermarket and stop for a drink in one of the small friendly bars on the way back.More
Ideal for families with young children
Would recommend this resort - the hotel standards and facilities 95% of the time were very good - although we did have a few minor problems with our room (which I will describe later) was not the case for others at the resort. The good points are food is excellent the choice was good at all meal times, cleanliness and staff in the restaurants were great and couldnât do enough for you. Pools and pool areas were clean and well maintained (NB - lifeguards are not provided at the pools). Unlike other similar resorts there is no tipping culture or pressure to tip to receive a good service. Wrist band free holiday. The problems we had with our room (which was room 705) were that it was regularly frequented by insects (i.e. ants, spiders, moths and on one night 2 very large cock roaches). Having reported the problem to reception on 3 occasions it was never fully rectified. The problem was that we were the last room of a ground floor block adjacent to the gardens and the room door was a poor fit and had a 1â gap at one side of the door which allowed the insects in at night. We stayed with family who had a 1st floor room and had no problems with insects.More
GREAT PLACE TO STAY
We arrived here on 14th May 2016 for a weeks stay. We had superb weather apart from one day. Hotel Staff, Reps, accommodation, food (everything) was lovely. We had a really good deal too so cant complain about anything. The only thing was it was so near to the beach it would have been lovely to go in the sea - however the sea was far too rough and choppy. Apart from that though great place to stay.More
This hotel was truly fantastic. I travelled with my husband, mum and two sons (1 is 22months). The staff couldn't do enough for us the whole week, the entertainment staff there with First Choice were attentive but not in your face if you didn't want it, caring with my boys and a real laugh. The rooms were so lovely, beautiful fixtures, bright and colourful and so so clean. The food areas are kept spotless and they are always bringing fresh food out, they will prepare anything you ask them to (within reason!) We will definitely go back, if you are looking for a family holiday with something for everyone then this is your place! Obviously it isn't the Ritz with a 5 star chef but its a little bit of paradise perfect for families.More
