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.

Very nice hotel for families with childrem
Just returned form Holiday Village Kos and must write a review. I read lots of reviews about this hotel and I can certainly say that most of the negative ones are not true. People complaining about food not being hot and repetitive, drinks not being tasteful or wine being horrible. C'mon, if you want your wine or champagne to be nice buy yourself a bottle of Dom PÃ©rignon and keep in the the fridge provided in the hotel room. We stayed in room 171 for a week. Nice family room with a cot bed provided by management. Room serviced daily, clean. I would suggest management to provide every room with DND card as we have not had one so room got serviced every day even if we didnt need it. Facilities on the hotel ground were very good. Plenty entertainment for kids at all ages from age 0 to 18. You can find football pitch, valley ball area, pool table, playground, table tennis and lots more. Ideal hotel for families with children. Main restaurant Ambrosia - food generally ok, lost of different choices for everyone, but if you are not 100% happy then you can have American or Greek restaurant. We have not used a beach a lot but the only thing I have noticed is that the beach bar is on the hotel grounds and not physically present on the beach so if you want some drinks you need to go back to the hotel ground and come back. not very far tho. just across the street, but if would benefit from portable bar on the beach. Cold beverages and beer would do. We had taken 2 trips one around the Kos island and one to the Kos town. Do not use your holiday providers trips as you can find them much cheaper 10 minutes walk away in Marmari in travel agents office such as TIGAKI TOURS or TIGAKI EXPRESS. We have saved 17 euros each. Bus to Kos City leaves every hour and cost you 2.1 euro. If you want to purchase some souvenirs or local drinks and food thats what i recomend: Zia is nice and cheap for souvenirs and olive oil but not alcohol. Kos City is generally expensive for souvenirs and alcohol. Marmari supermarket Connstantinos (you can see it from the reception) is 10 minutes away walking and prices are very good. Much cheaper than airport shops. If you want some souvenirs, tobacco or alcohol go CONSTANTINOS. More about the hotel: good size pools, 1.8m deep tho, 1 pool meant to be heated but it wasn't maybe because it was almost end of the season. Where ever you are located is not very far to the main restaurants or pools. We did not have to fight for the pool space, lost of empty sun beds every where still around 10am. Family entertainment in the amphitheater at 7.00pm with the Widget Workshop for kids till 9.30pm and then Prime time show for adults. If I am ever back to Kos I would return to this hotel.More
This is the second year running we have visited Holiday Village Kos and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic with a wide range on offer each day. The rooms were great with beautiful views across the sea and they were cleaned daily. Most of all the staff were a credit to themselves and really could not do more. A wonderful holiday made possible by the great team at Holiday Village.More

An eye opener!
First impression was good,check in was easy,room was good,near the restaurant and near the beach.The food was generally cold,but on some occasions it was warm,but never piping hot.The food was repetative and boring,the wine was awful,but the gin and whiskey were okay.We were unfortunately surrounded by people from Liverpool,who had terrible manners,were socially challenged,were verbally disgusting,repeatedly using the F word as standard. The theme nights were a joke,American restaurant my bottom,the food was shocking!The food was cold,even when served straight from the kitchen,absolutely appalling!Many of the other guests did the same as ourselves,left the food and left the diner still hungry and went to the main food hall! Following night was the Greek night,just as bad,told them if I was at home I would refuse to pay! just appalling. Sadly the food in general left a lot to be desired,would I recommend this hotel? NO. Due to heavy rain,the pools were out of order for 3 to 4 days,the grounds were under water and the mud etc found its way into the pools,the staff then allowed people to swim whilst it was still filthy! Not a good thing. The only good thing was the ADULT bar! no kids and the only loud noise was the gobby guy from Doncaster who liked the sound of his own voice! Just to say that the quiet pool wasn;t quiet,having noisy kids playing wasn;t good.More
Stayed at the holiday village kos from 22nd - 29th September with partner and 3 year old little boy. The holiday was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We arrived in exceptionally heavy rain, a lot of the grounds were flooded, this did not spoil our first impressions. The room- family room with sliding partition, mini bar, balcony overlooking the kiddies splash pool, lovely big shower, comfy beds, no complaints at all. The food: exceptional. Fantastic quality and good variety for even the most fussy of eaters. The food in the American and Greek restaurants was also brilliant, (you can go to each of these once for free). Free ice cream and popcorn machine which was a nice treat! There were ready made sandwiches available throughout the day which made for a great snack. The drink : my only gripe with this was that the kiddies slush drinks were often not available as they were not frozen or kept frozen for periods of time and my son loved them. Otherwise nice cocktails, nice wine. Facilities : excellent for all the family. There is a programme of entertainment and activities for all ages, adult games of football, volleyball, water polo, quizzes, gameshows and bingo. Kiddies have a playground, splash pool, kiddies games from lilo racing to prince and princess of the pool competitions. Kids clubs are fantastic, can use these from age of three up to teenagers. My son loved the water slides and the park, there were some competitions he got involved in too and won a certificate. There is a shop on site which sells bits you may need, but it seemed to be a running joke between the entertainment team about how expensive it is, winning 24 euros on bingo meant you could probably buy half a lilo from "sams shop" (cree was a really funny guy, suppose you had to be there). There was also a relax pool and adult only bar which was nice and quiet. Location: lovely location where you can see the sunset over the sea. The beach is nice, marmari village isn't very big and there's not much there but it's a nice sort of 15 minute walk out of the hotel. Kos town was well worth a visit, bus comes a bit further down from the hotel at 25 past the hour and is 2 euro 10 cents one way. It takes about 30 mins. Airport transfer was about 25 mins. Left the best till last... The entertainment team. I have never seen such a fab group of people who clearly love their job and work so well together. Absolutely hilarious, Cree, your bingo night was "what dreams are made of". My partner (nicknamed Angry Andy) is not much of a bingo fan, or one to get up doing silly things on stage but this holiday was a total game changer. He loved it! He won himself a "russell the brussell T shirt which i think was one if his highlights of the holiday. The dances and games they did and had the kids doing were fantastic. It was their mission to ensure everyone had fun. Really helpful, all the kids clubs team were great too, my son really took a shine to laura who was lovely, and also the lady who greeted us every morning and evening in the restaurant. There are some bugs and mosquitos, we did get bit, take some mozzy spray. The stray cats, you either love them or hate them. We loved them, fed them ham, they were friendly (except the cute little black and white kitten who we just loved to watch playing). I think that's about everything covered. I'd go back to this hotel 100%. I think the team made this holiday for us though, we love you cree, Carl, Helen, flo, laura and all the others we had the pleasure to meet. Keep up the good work.

Amazing amazing amazing !
We travelled as a family of 4, 2 adults 2 children aged 8 & 3, on the 19th September 2015, and we found it absolutely perfect on every level. Right from the get go leaving Glasgow, bang on time, with everything running completely like clock work. The short resort transfer was made quick, easy and hassle free, thanks to the speedy organisation of the Thomson reps. Upon arrival we were greeted with a friendly welcome along with fresh sandwiches, fruit and cold water. . . As we were a late arrival and the dinning room had already closed. We thought this was a nice touch. The room we were allocated was just amazing, spotless, roomy, stylish, and very comfortable, our daughters were very impressed with their own little space and room, as we had a sliding partition door. Our holiday continued in the same fashion as the outset, with extremely friendly staff, spotless facilities, excellent food, with plenty of choice every evening and always being replenished way before the last was empty, so food was always hot and fresh. Our girls can be fussy but always managed to find something which pleased them. The grounds were also amazingly well kept....... Unfortunately for us we did experience some very unfortunate weather with VERY heavy downpours and some terrible thunder!! ( which is not usual for this time of year, just unfortunate bad luck ) but this is where we saw the ground staff, resort staff and entertainment teams come into their own!! Totally first class throughout, with flooded areas being dealt with immediately & the entertainment teams going above and beyond to make sure everyone remained happy and care free and being very well entertained, even though it wasn't in the usual spot of the amphitheatre ! Which made their efforts even more remarkable. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this place to every family. ( block 600 ) is a must for location and families, as it's directly opposite the splash pool ) We had an amazing 10 days ( even in spite of the weather ) and are every much looking forward to another visit sometime in the very near future.More
