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.

Great Family Holiday
Only arrived back from our holiday at at HV Kos last night, having had a great 2 weeks with my husband and our almost 4 year old. The complex was clean and well maintained with lawned areas and lots of palm and fruit trees, shrubs and flowers. There were always staff gardening, tidying, cleaning etc. The apartment blocks were 2 or 3 storeys high and spread out across the hotel. We were in the 500 block, which was perhaps the furthest from the pools, restaurants, beach etc, although not terribly far to walk (however with hindsight we might have requested a room closer to the pools for convenience). Rooms were clean and well presented. We had a family room, which worked really well for us as there was a double bedroom at the far end of the room, with a door and viewing window into another room with 2 single beds. There are a number of different pools - the splash pool for the children is good with water slides, water jets etc.; the activity pool is where much of the day time activity programmes and music is centred; there is a large pool near the restaurants and bar that seemed popular; and a 'relax' pool which was quiter being away from the music and centre of activity. All the pools had seperate shallow areas (40 - 60 cm) for kids. The hotel/first choice run various activities and clubs throughout the day and evening, 0-2 yrs; 3-5yrs; 6-8 yrs; 9-12yrs and some activities for teenagers, as well a family programme, adult activities (volleyball, water polo, aqua fit etc.) and evening entertainment for the kids and then the adults. There is plenty to do for everyone if you want it. My daughter loved the 'live and loud' slot (8-9pm which is songs, dancing, and games for kids). The presenters (usually Xander and Rhi Rhi) were great and my daughter couldn't stop going on about them, although all of the entertainment staff and kids club reps worked really hard and were really friendly and managed to maintain smiles and energy even though it was starting to quieten down (beginning to mid September). Hotel staff were really friendly, everyone is really nice and helpful - the managers were there to say goodbye to guests as the coach departed. The hotel is all inclusive which was of a good standard. The food was great - plenty of choice and variety each day, so even after 2 weeks we weren't bored. The quality was good too (although the meat tends to be well cooked - presumably to be cautious). Food and drink is available throughout the day. The Greek was restaurant was nice - the food was good quality and tasty, although there was far too much of it, which made it a bit overwhelming and the service was a little slow, which with a niggly youngster was a bit tricky compared to the convenience of the self-service buffet (so we didn't bother trying the American as the buffet food is so good and easier). The beer was good, spirits were generic/local spirits - so not so great. Slushies and ice-cream were good and plentiful. The resort is about a 15-20 minute walk out of Marmari, which in itself is a quiet little town with a few bars, restaurants and shops (there is a great supermarket called Konstantinos, walking up the main road away from the beach, which sells most stuff that you might need - there is a shop on the hotel complex which is obviously very convenient but you'll pay at least double for most things). The beach is at the rear of the hotel across a small road. There are hotel sunbeds and the hotel provide pool/beach towels. The beach bar is on the hotel site (so back across the road), which serves most drinks, slushies and hot dogs. The beach is a nice sandy beach (a few pebbles as you walk into the sea). The sea is generally warm, although the sea can get a little choppy at times - which is great if you like water sports which are available just up the beach. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which runs through Marmari to Kos at 25 past the hour for 2.10 Euro (kids under 6 are free, I think). Overall, a really good family holiday and i would definitely consider returning and would be happy to recommend it to others - if like us, you want a simple and easy holiday with kids. We were sad to leave and unlike some holidays where you get to the end of the two weeks and it feels like enough, we could have easily stayed longer.More

Kids Kids Kids
Got back 11th September after a 10 day stay. We knew there would be children there but were not prepared for the amount of children (I can honestly say I think there was more children there than I actually went to school with). I would no advise any couple to stay there the relaxation pool was no different to the rest. Upon arrival we were put in a room directly opposite the main activity area we requested a move and they moved us the next day to room 531 near the reception area so much better. The rooms were fine and the air con was excellent. The Staff were all very nice very friendly Domitros was great at the bar near the American Dinner in fact all the staff were great there. We had a meal in the Greek restaurant which was ok however the American Dinner much to my great surprise was excellent the food was great. Food in the main restaurant was nice and very varied however both myself and my husband suffered with upset stomach even after we got back so I don't really know what the issue was?? The saving grace for us was the short walk across the road to the beach which was wonderful free sunbeds the sea was so clear if you dragged the sunbeds far enough away from the main area (with the children) it was beautiful and just a short walk back the to the beach bar as and when. To sum it up the staff were very helpful and friendly food fine just did not agree with me beach to die for Hotel is wasted how it is if it was adults only it would be a great place to go. Definitely not for couplesMore

Hotel is lovely and clean Rooms compact,the most modern I've stayed in Food is great (not always red hot) American restaurant was poor (would rather eat in the buffet) Greek was nice but busy so took quite some time to get served Drinks are great Bars are lovely and never queued Everything is located perfectly right in the centre of the resort Will 100% be returning We went at the end of the summer holidays and I think it was a bit quieter which was great for sunbeds and drinks etc Kids 7 and 10 loved it Beach is lovely (a lot of seaweed and a stones as you walk in but once you pass that it's bliss) Staff are lovely The bus to Kos which stops between hotel and beach which is â¬2.10 each is well worth a trip! We ate out there one night and got the bus back around 10 Cleaners are great Thanks for a great holiday ðMore
