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.

Would definitely return but not in October
Booked this holiday as my wedding. If u are thinking of a wedding abroad I would recommend this hotel mainly because the wedding organiser yota is fantastic. I stressed about nothing as everything was under control and my special day went without a hitch. When we arrived we had roses on the bed and a basket of fruit and wine. we then had breakfast in bed the day after our wedding. Enough to feed a small army. The rooms were lovely, and cleaned every day. the pools were freezing. The children were coming out of them with blue lips. (Not that they minded tho) The staff were amazing. Yvonni, ejeuni(captain) ciprioin(waiter) Alexandra bar staff were polite and could not do enough for you. And then there was Maria who worked the main bar she was amazingly helpful, polite and courteous. If I had my own bar back home I would employ Her without a doubt. The only bad thing about this holiday was the time we booked it. I booked this time of year because I have teachers in my family and the wedding took place during school holidays. But what first choice failed to tell us was the hotel would be closing around us. The food choice was very poor and there was hardly no choice of drinks(the kids only had slush puppies for the first 2 days of the 2 week holiday) The kids club was open tho they normally closed early because there were only 3-4 children there (bearing in mind it was half term and we paid half term prices) all the children in our group loved Lloyd. He was great. He was even thrown In the pool but the older boys (men) in our group(I think he had blue lips coming out of there mind Haha. The last day we were there was the last day of the hotel being open. So when I said the hotel closed down around us I wasn't joking literally everything closed. We had to have food(if that's what u could call it) in reception and our bus wasn't picking us up until 1am. (Most of the kids club reps were on our flight home and they tried their best to entertain the children but there is only so many Disney films they can watch, baring in mind most families had been out of there room since 12 noon). We were lucky our wedding planner yota spoke with the manager and he give us a late check out as a wedding present. And we thank him for that as it would have been a long day/night otherwise. To put in it a nut shell first choice should have made a point telling us everthing was closing the last week we were there. There's low season and end of season. The manager of the hotel waved us off when leaving because we were the last people there. But don't leave this put u off. If u book peak time no doubt u will have a fabulous time as all staff/kids club/managers/wedding organisers work there bones off and u will really enjoy xx More
Don't expect to drink lots.Poor availability of all inclusive drinks
After visiting this hotel I am completely disappointed with first choice. We had a full bar service for two days of our stay then we had no diet coke, at times no draught beer, some White wine but not always available and never in the adults only bar . On the night we left we couldn't have white wine at one bar, no diet coke in another and no 7up and what makes it worse as after writing to the "home of all inclusive" , first choice I was told this is common towards the end of season in all hotels as they run their stock down for the winter. We were there in October and paid for the same holiday as the people the weeks prior to us who would have had every drink. So this review is not just about the hotel but first choice policy in general. I have lots of other points that let this hotel down, be aware if you want late checkout it will cost you nearly Â£100 and if you suffer with allergies do not take the advice of the restaurant staff and be confident that they know what they are telling you . My son of just three years old needs gluten free food , they were confident they could accommodate this sadly they were wrong and he suffered for this. Again first choice are not interested in my complaint so I would not be confident it can be improved . Ashame as I love the holiday villages but this one lets the side down . On a positive the hotel is clean, entertainment and kids teams were amazing and bar staff were great but unfortunately they didn't have the drinks to serve to us. I would recommend holiday villages but not this one and worse still if you are ever dissatisfied with first choice don't expect any support on your return . More

We went mid October with our 2 kids aged 5 and 2. The resort has good facilities and the entertainment team were great. Pools were freezing- if a hotel stays open for October half term I think they should hear the pools. Weather wasn't great either so that combined with cold pools would mean I wouldn't come here for half term again. The splash pool was great fun for all kids but just a shame it was so cold. Food was disappointing mainly because it was always lukewarm at best. Quality was ok and edible but can't say we had a great meal. The extra a la carte restaurants didn't seem worth it - same buffet food. We stayed in a family duplex which had plenty of space for the 4 of us. The sporting facilities were good with tennis courts, football pitch, well equipped gym. Will try another holiday village as there is lots to do for kids but no this one again. More

Great green territory
Very nice hotel with big green territory! At the hotel there is a wonderful football field, in the morning, evening snd late evening kids train there with football coaches. Boys are happy! And some girls too))) There are two big pools, in one of them swimming lessons for children are held. One pool for babies with water slides and many other cool water things. Great variety of food. While entering the main restaurant before dinner, you'll be offered a glass of cocktail or champaign (every day different). We stayed at the duplex room, it was big enough, but a bit old, bathroom and toilet on both floors, big balcony. On the territory there are some a-la carte restaurants and they all leave much to be desired! In conclusion, i should say that it is a good family hotel with everything you need for kids of all ages!

Enjoyable First H/V Experience
Stayed here in mid October with our 2 1/2 year old son. Although he didn't get to use some of the facilities due to his age there were more than enough to keep him entertained all week. Pools were cold but this was only to be expected due to the time of the year. The splash pool was great and quite safe due to only being shallow. 2 of the 3 slides were ideally suited to the younger children as they were not too steep. The beach across the road was great for children as it was gently shelving and even at the time of the year waves were fairly small. Fantastic facilities for older kids (football academy and activity pool that always had something some thing going on etc). Food was better than expected and nuggets and chips were limited to the childrens section. Large salad section with an equally impressive section containing various tapenade, pickles, olives and things like that. Great selection of local and Greek dish's and theme nights over the week. Entertainment is where this resort really comes in to its own. The entertainment team were nothing short of outstanding. Aimed at 'Toddlers' The Widgets and slightly older kids i5Live provided themed entertainment along with plenty of interaction and 'disco' music which was loved by all. Can't comment on the adult entertainment as we didn't stay for this. Overall I could highly recommend this resort, its far from the 'Butlins' abroad that some reviews reference, at this time of year, not sure about peak season as reviews seem to indicate it getting very busy.More
