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.

Went here on our honeymoon after visiting holiday village Majorca last year. This place doesn't meet the same standards at all. The first choice reps were rude, turning away kids from kids clubs when in Majorca they would get more staff. We got a apology from a angry rep, he said he was just too stressed. Wow, your in the wrong job then mate. Not someone I wanted my child left with after that. Rooms I thought was small, just a alley way, was a extremely dangerous floor, especially with the two steps. Maybe would have been better if the two beds were a sofa bed so there was a living area. Once you put cot in you can't move. Shower was good. Lady who run the hot dog bar was rude and didn't want to be there. All I heard her say is no not ready not ready. She didn't like to restock. Buffet restaurant is what we expected - awful American diner was ok Didn't go in Greek as all we heard was negatives about it. Pools were freezing in May, there is a sign for a heated pool but that was never heated. People reserving 15 sun beds and then not coming back all day sums up the sun bed situation. Entertainment area is a death trap for toddlers, concrete stairs were a joke and there was broken chairs scattered about. We reported the chairs but they was still left there when we left. The whole entertainment area is one big accident waiting to Happen. There is a sister hotel just 10 minute walk away I suggest going there for a day. The difference in quality is clear for all to see. No drinks or food on arrival either. Rosy taught our daughter to swim while we were there. She was a lovely rep. Outside bar wasn't open at night so meant going to the inside bar past pool to get a drink which meant glasses smashing and pool being shut next day due to sharp objects. Entertainment at other holiday villages have been far better too. This had hardly no entertainment. At Majorca they had adult games after kids entertainment and adult singers coming in etc. Gary Barlow tribute at Majorca last year was amazing. All in all we had a good holiday as we made the most of family time but I really wouldn't pay there to go again. I would give a holiday village another go but certainly not this one, especially with the awful reps there. Seems the management only want to hear positives.More
Absolutely loved this place , Just Me and my 2 children, age 9 and 6 !! Loved it so much I ended up staying a few extra days , obviously cost Me but was worth it.. Can't understand what people have to moan about, Our room (sliding doors) was lovely , spotlessly clean and big enough. The pools were fantastic, found something different to eat every night!! All the staff were very polite and friendly, especially the bar man in the adult bar!!! The first choice team were fantastic and work so hard, there was things for the children to do all day and they managed to get my 9 year old off the football pitch and joining in (so well done to them) .... As for the night time ... That's all my 6 year old wanted to do, I actually found them funny and entertaining.... Xandra was by far my favourite, put him with Rhianna and they just entertained .... But all the team were friendly , helpful, fun, ...kids clubs in the day must of been good as my 6 year old kept wanting to go to at least one everyday.... The shop: Sam was great and my 9 year old was playing football with Billy within 5 minutes of us being there and then did for 10 days after.... Lovely lovely family !! Beach was great, but stayed by the pools most of the time . Will be going back to Kos holiday village, and hopefully soon !!!!!More
Well we loved the weather, room was great, some of the staff were brilliant. Food, well 1st week was ok, 2nd week rubbish, lived on chip buttys. If you smoke, forget finding a ash tray, we were given paper cups with water in to use, all the money we spent on this holiday, & they can not provide ash trays. Entertainment, forget it, absolutely rubbish, ok if you have small children, Adult entertainment started at 10.30pm, A quiz, could not understand Rhiannas sqeeky voice, although she loves to hear her own voice. Bingo was done twice, 3rd night they said machine had broken, this did not get repaired 8 days later. Prince & princesses, is a fix. They get them to dance, then they are judged by a team member, that was not there to see them dance, then they let the same kid win, lots of un crontrolling children running around, while the parents sit & drink. My daughter even saved a child from drowning, although she was supervised by three adults. This complex needs to up its game, provide what the brochure says, get some staff that want to be there.More
