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.

Visited August of 2015 Kos in Greece a very popular holiday destination and it was booked just a month before but it felt like the longest month ever! We arrived later as our flight got delayed, we got to the holiday village at 5 oâclock in the morning checked in upon arrival was given a choice of water, juice and sandwiches and got some sleep before everyone else was awake. I eventually woke up at 11 which is later than normal just because I hadnât been able to get much sleep on the plane as there was a toddler crying behind us for majority of the flight. But it was to be expected as the air pressure even hurt my head. After, I got ready in the spacious bathroom and bedroom we went to book excursions with the holiday rep for the week that we are here for I would later learn that we should have booked longer. We booked car rental for a day and went into the town of Zia and to a beach in kefalos. Other excursions included Kos by day and a trip to Bodrum in Turkey. Once we had finished booking the excursions and was told some useful information we headed down to one of the many places to eat. There was plenty of choice even if you was fussy hot or cold food and a selection of ice cold drinks refreshing in the 30 degree and above heat. We spent most of the day laying by the pool and occasionally going in to cool off. By night the entertainment was fantastic, not only did the entertainments team work by the pool by day with activities and fun for the children and giving the parents a well-earned break. They then went on to late at night providing character meet and greets, live singing, dancing, lights all upon their stage, âRussel the Brusselâ, team games, bingo (for the adults) and much more including a charity night for a UK charity called Tommyâs for babies which touched a lot of peopleâs hearts and the resort ended up raising just over Â£1,000! The most they had ever raised at that time. The team gave 110% in their shows and was enjoyed by so many. Did I mention the food was great there was a few different restaurants which included a main buffet restaurant, an American diner, Greek tavern and an Italian restaurant. Which unfortunately was only open on a Sundays which we just missed out as we arrived on a Sunday. The main buffet had regular themed nights and included a great variety of food. Even a kidâs corner with more child friendly dishes such as pizza, chicken nuggets, pasta and sausages. Then after you had finished your main meal if you still had any room left there was a lot a deserts to choose from. Overall, the waiters and staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Grounds were kept clean and tidy. Would I recommend it to others? Yes. Would I come back? Yes. Photos taken with an IPhone 6. More
Perfect for families - 100% honest review
I visited for 2 weeks on the 26th of September with my partner and 3 year old daughter. On arrival we got to the lobby to check in and there was cold pizzas, sandwiches and fruit with orange juice and squash available. This was great after travelling all day. The room was beyond our expectation, spacious and spotless and decorated nicely. There is plenty for everyone to do during the day, my daughter loved the kids club and would sometimes go twice a day for up to 2 hours at a time, on days that she didn't go she enjoyed activities around the pool. There are sports, mini gameshows and the entertainment team went above and beyond to get to know the guests which I found to be different at other hotels. The hotel was pretty empty for the two weeks we were there so had no problems getting sunbeds or a seat of a night time. The nighttime shows are brilliant and the team are very talented. The only reasons I didn't give the holiday a 5/5 was down to two/three things. The food I thought was varied and of a good quality but not as good as other 4* alinclusive hotels. Also, of a night time after the show is finished around 9:30/10pm there is bingo every night followed by a quiz - we were bored after the first 5 days or so but had no other option of what to do. All we wanted was some music played or a bit more variety - if you don't like BINGO then you're in trouble! The alcohol is obviously watered down like all alinclusive but this did not bother us to be honest - what did was the lights in the bar being turned off at the stroke of midnight so we have to sit in the dark to finish our drinks. The entertainment team even moaned about it. I understand noise levels need to be lower after a certain time but it always felt like such a rude and abrupt way to end the night especially as the security guards were so miserable. Turn the music off if you must but leave the lights on! We really enjoyed our stay and dos not want to come home! 2 weeks for the first time ever was not long enough!! More
120 euros to keep our room for 6 hours on our final day.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at this hotel. We went there during the first two weeks of October and the weather was perfect for us, mid 20s. As the season drew to a close we never witnessed any hassles over sunbeds which are a common theme of the midsummer reviews. We chose to sunbathe on the hotels beach as the air was too still around the hotel pools. Sunbeds and parasols are free to guests on the beach and the hotel provides drinks and snacks from a conveniently placed beach bar at the entrance to the hotel a short walk from the beach. The beach and sea is clean and tidy. We walked for miles along the shore, very pleasant. The focus of this hotel is family holidays, so it won't be much fun for those who don't like kids. There's a huge pool for kids, play areas and all sorts of activities for kids. If mine were still little, they would have loved it. When we have grandkids we'll bring them here. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable and the grounds kept tidy and totally free of litter. Only slight demerit is the public toilet areas need better maintenance, i.e. toilet doors that don't close properly. The main restaurant is buffet and totally self service, even the drinks. The staff aren't waiters, but efficiently clean up around you as you eat, which is more reminiscent of a fast food restaurant. It isn't sophisticated fine dining, but if you're happy with that, you'll find the food quite remarkable, always plenty of choice, meats, fish, vegetarian, enough to accommodate most tastes. My only disappointment was that there were no crackers to go with the cheeses on display. Don't Greeks know about cheese and biscuits? Somebody please tell them! Throughout the two weeks stay we weren't tempted to book any of the other restaurants, mostly because we were happy with the variety of the food in the main restaurant, but we were also put off a little by other reviews. These restaurants never looked busy while we were there, but we've no idea what they were like. Beer and wine seemed pleasant enough, but seemed rather low in alcohol content. We tended to round off the evening in the adult bar, where a couple of Ouzos made up for the weak beer. WiFi was free and we had a reasonable signal in our room. Staff - everyone who works here deserve credit for making our stay at this hotel a happy memory. Conclusion - this holiday wasn't sophisticated, we weren't waited on hand and foot, nor fanned over by waiters and waitresses eager to please (for tips), which we also enjoy. This is self service, find a table, get your own type of holiday and they do it very well. They keep everywhere clean, they put out nice food and they leave you to your own devices. They provide entertainment for those that want it. We had a good time and would revisit this hotel.More
Lacking care overall
In brief we went towards the end of the summer season last year (2015). We had a so-so holiday, but there were issues. Accomodation Room (can't remember the number, but a newish block) was mainly clean, but had an issue with ants, which we dealt with by spraying them repeatedly until they stopped appearing. Clean, but no mattress cover (protector) so we were lying in bodily fluids of people who had used the bed before us. Not 4* or 5* standards. Food I like a buffet, but we were bored by the food. The themed nights involved a free drink and that was about it. Very little choices on the buffet to actually match the daily theme. Cats The place was overrun by cats. New kittens from at least two litters around the hotel, begging food, defecating in the restaurant area, staff disinterested in actually doing anything about them. I don't care for cats, and if I wanted to be plagued by them, I'm sure I'd have been happy. But we are not pet people and we do not care to be annoyed by cats when eating, with them even trying to get on your seat. TV We were ill two days (something was going around). So we couldn't believe only two foreign news channels broadcasting in English. Massive choice of channels for Russians and Austrians and Germans, but no choice for English speakers (who made up 90% of the guests). Overall, the place lacked care, lacked sunbeds (so much space to put them in, just a massive shortage) and it is not somewhere we would go again.More
Nice 10 day break
Nice big rooms, good for family's. We traveled as a couple. This hotel would not be everyone's cup of tea. If you want to away from kids. This did not bother us. Staff work tirelessly hard. Food plentiful could be hotter in some cases, we never went hungry. Never tried the pools. Beach was great. Special mention to the smiling beach bar girl. 2 beers every time I passed, delightful. Would we return, with family yes, the two of us no. Thanks for a great 10 daysMore
