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.

Not for couples
Me and My boyfriend decided to take our first ever holiday together at a holiday village. We decided on this as we new we wouldn't have to worry about much as to not very responsible teenagers and we new we would be safe in a village. The room was outstanding! couldn't fault the room. After we arrived and got into our room we got a phone call from the hotel asking us how the room is and if their is any problems. Which was so nice. The food was okay not much choice in the buffet but when the pasta chef was their we was both very pleased. The American food place was awful. On the small choice what they where offering I decided on the burger. I say burger I mean soggy meat. I couldn't eat it and I felt that bad about leaving it (because the staff where lovely) I was feeding it to the cats. And I must say I wasn't the only one feeding it to the cats. My next point the price to keep the room for a few hours was jaw dropping! But what they don't tell you is that you can book a shower room for half a hour before your transfer picks you up. (we had to find this out through another guest telling us to ask for a room) This was most defiantly needed when getting picked up after 9 at night. As the entertainment goes; all for the children. Not much for a couple of 18 year olds on their first holiday romance. Overall it was a fantastic and memorable holiday but for any young couples I would most defiantly say look around as we wont be returning back here.More

Excellent Wedding and Holiday combined
My husband, children and I all thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our holiday and wedding at this hotel. The staff - were excellent and very well mannered. Befriend a barman and they will look after you :) The waiters and waitresses in the American and Greek restaurants were very attentive, and Nikolas in the main restaurant made us very welcome on our first day and throughout our stay. The Food - The food in the main restaurant was very good, plenty of choice and the themed evenings were fab. The Drink - All good, plenty of non alcoholic cocktails for kids and non drinkers, and the iced slushies were a massive hit with us! The Pools - Sun beds are a bit of a nightmare but they are in every hotel I've been to, you just have to play everyone at they're own game, there is plenty of grass area around the splash pool to park your towels, and we did find a stash of spare sunbeds by the relax pool if you don't manage to get one. The Grounds - All very well kept and so green even in the heat, also very clean, the staff were always around picking up rubbish and emptying the bins. If you are getting married out here then Yota and Maria are excellent, so efficient and can't do enough for you, our day went so smoothly because of these two and we can't praise them enough. We loved the quiet location with the beach over the road and the 2 euro bus trip to town has got to be done, loads of traditional greek tavernas and souvenir shops. Also a trip to Zia to watch the sunset is a must, we ate at Oromedon and the food was amazing and very reasonably priced. All in all we had a fabulous time, at the end of the day your holiday is what you make it, we would definitely recommend it.More

Excellent Holiday. Best Holiday Village we have visited.
The hotel is clean and tidy and the room we had was excellent in the far side of the hotel opposite the beach. On arrival as we had missed dinner they had provided sandwiches, fruit, water etc for the weary traveller, which was an excellent touch. The rooms were cleaned regularly everyday and the air con worked fine ( apart from one day when it struggled but it did hit 42 on the mercury! ). The pools were excellent with 4 to choose from. A splash pool with small slides aimed at smaller children ( 6-12 was the official age range but I would say aimed at the lower of this ), an activity pool which was the main hub of the resort and PA announcements in the day but a little cramped, the quite pool which is the largest of the pools and as the name suggests away from the PA announcements of the activity pool ( this was our pool of choice ) and finally a kids pool which is shallower and more for small children or non swimmers. Sun beds were at a premium if you wanted to locate in a particular place but you could always find a spot if you weren't fussy. If you need WiFi ( and we didn't as we go on holiday to get away from the Internet! ) then it only works reliably in reception. The absolute best thing about this hotel is the food and drink which are second to none. The catering staff were all very friendly and were making jokes etc with everyone. The food choice was amazing! In fact we had too much choice and ended up eating way too much as our plates were piled high with all the dishes we wanted to try. Salads, meats, stews, rice, pasta and of course chips etc. for those with fussy kids like us! Also regular themed nights ( Mexican, Greek, Italian etc. ). We didn't book into any of the a la carte restaurants as the choice in the main restaurant was so good we couldn't see the point. Also a snack bar and pool bar serving excellent local ( Rhodes ) beer. We didn't go to the beach much but this was a 5 minute walk and was very quite. Shallow enough to stay on your feet way out to sea and sandy for the same distance. When it came to leaving the hotel, the manager and staff were there to say goodbye and offer water for the journey which was a lovely touch. One warning though and our only bad experience of the whole holiday. Kos Airport is an absolute hell hole! The Tui staff did a great job of shepherding us before we went airside but we had to queue outside the airport in the heat for an hour and we were at the front of the queue! God knows how long the people at the back had to wait. So make sure you take lots of water and supplies for the wait. Check in seemed to take forever and then you had to queue again to drop your bag. Once through passport control we went into the tiniest departure lounge you have ever seen with 3-4 flights worth of people waiting all crammed in. There were also no displays in the departure lounge so you had no idea which gate your flight would depart from and the Tannoy was rubbish so you couldn't hear the announcements. Even with this minor blip at the end this was still by far one of the best holidays we have been on.More

Fabulous Family Resort
Stayed for 7 nights from 25th July 2015. 2 adults and a 9 year old. Our deluxe family room with sea view was spacious, well equipped and clean. The resort catered for everyone - there are 4 different pools (relax, splash, activity and family), kids clubs for every age group and great entertainment during the day and into the evening. There was a good variety of well, cooked, tasty food from all around the world - we felt we were spoiled for choice. Every taste was catered for at breakfast - regular bacon, crispy bacon, 3 and 5 minute boiled eggs, porridge, fruit, yogurt etc. Some days we enjoyed a fry up, others we simply had porridge, cereal or toast. There was a good variety of hot and cold, alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks available all of the time and free bottles of water available from all of the bars.The resort as a whole is very clean and the staff all seem happy and friendly. We didn't experience a problem with mosquitoes - perhaps it's a seasonal thing. Little extras like free popcorn and ice cream for the kids and a children's step at the pool bar (allowing them to order their own drinks) were great too! The First Choice reps and entertainment staff are amazing - boundless energy, enthusiasm and great with the kids. They all work so hard, as do the locals who carry out the catering and cleaning roles around the resort. Our daughter made several friends and enjoyed a few visits to the kids club. She was very proud of herself for tackling the 'High Ropes' course. The pools were clean and litter, empty plates & cups were constantly collected. People did get up early to 'reserve' sun beds and ensure they were where they wanted to be, but there were enough - I didn't see anyone without one. The beach is just across the road and is very pleasant - no jelly fish - again must be seasonal! Marmari is a short walk along the beach road (15 mins ish) for bars, restaurants and a few shops. The excursions all sounded great, but we were only away for a week and just enjoyed the pools and the weather this time! We have been to several Holiday Villages now, as they suit our family needs and this is by far the best of those we've visited. I heard other guests comparing experiences elsewhere and coming to the same conclusion. We really didn't want to come home and will definitely return for a longer stay! The only negative about the whole trip was the airport - hot, overcrowded and disorganized, but I guess Thomson/First Choice can't do anything about that! I looked at a number of reviews from people who travelled in May & June and a lot of their (understandable) niggles appear to have been addressed/resolved from what we experienced.More
