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! Fantastic wedding
We went to the HV Kos from 24th sept to 8th oct and had the BEST time ever!!! There was a large group of us (60) some with children some without and we all had a brilliant time. We got Married on the 2nd oct and it could not have been better, the staff could not do enough for us, anything that we wanted was done with no problem! We had the best day ever! The holiday it's self was great, the place is nice and clean, plenty of variety of food, the kids club and entertainment staff was fab, lots going on a the time for everyone. Anyone that's getting married here, you will be fine everything is just perfect :-)More
Good value for money
I think I should declare that I got a very good deal on a week at this hotel, so my review reflects the value for money that I paid for it. General Positives: Transfer from airport is literally 15 mins, the quickest I have ever had by far. Speedy and friendly check in. (bags were taken to our room) Great crÃ¨che staff who gave myself and my wife two hours a day of "us" time! The buffet food. I cannot understand how people can say that there was no choice or the food was cold, I never suffered this, a good variety of food available on each of the five nights we used the buffet. (wish it had been 7 nights, see below!) I am not sure that I would ever have high expectations of food at places like this, so of course it wasn't Michelin standard but it did the trick for me! Our Duplex room was a good size, as mentioned on previous reviews it could do with a bit of tlc, but I would thoroughly recommend them for the split level rooms rather than just a partition and also they are the furthest that you can be away from any of the loud entertainment that goes on throughout the day and night. (and if people complain that they are a five min walk from the restaurants then that's their choice, for me it was a good chance to burn off some of the calories that I was eating every day. Couple of Negatives On the second night our son was woken by a call from reception at 22.00 asking us if our room was ok? Surely this can be done at a more suitable time or by way of putting a questionnaire through the door? The A la carte restaurants were both a let down, the American diner in particular was really poor. The Greek restaurant was ok and the pork gyros I had for main course was lovely but this was off set by my wife's very dry chicken. No excuse to over cook chicken when it is supposedly made to order? Day time entertainment. I thought the place had a definite "end of season" feel to it, I have been to other similar holidays were there were a lot more quizzes and daily activities to get involved with, but it felt a bit like the entertainment team couldn't be bothered anymore. Overall as I said at the start, I thought this was great value for money for the price I paid. If I had gone in August and paid double or more for the same holiday with three times as many people there my review may have been slightly different!More
Today being the 19th of oct and I've still got 4 days of my holidays left..... It bring me great disappointment to even take the time out of my holiday to be writing this and not spending valuable time with my children. Room- I feel the room is in need of maintence, at least 2 tubes of silicon used to seal shower door, mosquito door net ripped, cob webs around headboard. I booked a superior family room and at the point of booking it advertised that the room contianed a play station ( only was going to used after showers up into going for dinner in the evening) much to my children upset it do's, but not in the room available from reception at a â¬250 deposit and nothing but 18yr games and only 5 of .The room was cleaned daily with a quick brush, mop and bed make traces of sand and dirt up against skirting once dry the positive thing that towels changed daily and sheets changed every 2 days. Resteraunt- I'm a pretty late dinner 8 - 8.30 there was a good selection/variety of food in which 95% of it was cold or Luke warm even the so called hot dishes. I had to ask for a fresh plate of fries for my children and the waiter said that there was lots still out my response yes but stone cold!!!! The bar in the evening was poorly managed by rude/ arrogant staff that only seem polite if you tipped in there tip glass directly in front of them. There was very limited glasses which had all ran out by 9 o'clock and then they served all drinks in children plastic party cups. People we're buying large souvenir glasses from the onsite shop to use, Which is very expensive when it comes to children's items bucket/ spade â¬12, lilo starting â¬18. I wanted a late check out for - 3 hrs it was â¬50 for 6hrs â¬110 I understand that there should be a charge but these prices are just daylight robbery!!! There is plenty more to complain about but I feel I've given this far to much time already.More
Awesome Family Holiday!
Well what can I say.....We've just returned from a weeks holiday at Holiday Village, Kos. This was our first holiday at a HV and was recommended to us by family and they weren't wrong, it was THE BEST HOLIDAY I have had (bar my honeymoon!). Our 4 year old was brilliantly catered for from the room with a sliding partition, to the kids corner in the restaurant to the excellent kids club and entertainment staff. I can't praise the entertainment staff enough, especially, Stuart, Alice, Helen, Cara, Dee and not forgetting Stevie G (and his alter ego Farmer McVitie) they made my little boys holiday, always having time and a high five for him whenever we saw them. The kids club was great, short 1.5 hour sessions were just right to give us a little time off without feeling like we'd 'chucked the kids in day care all holiday'! The pools were great, although cold, they were all spotlessly clean and plenty of sun beds around them. The splash pool was right outside our room and again was excellent not too deep and easy to see the children at all times. The family pool was heated though so much more pleasant. The beach is also great, the sea was fairly calm, even on a windy day, and the shelf was very shallow so was really safe for children and as the beach itself it not very deep I felt very happy for my son to splash around in the surf and play in the sand without feeling I had to be right next to him. The food was good, reading other reviews they seem to be disappointed however I could not complain. Whilst it wasn't 5* dining by any means there was always something I liked, freshly made pasta was available every night and failing that pizza. The kids food was also brilliant, not particularly healthy but if they can't have chips every night on holiday when can they!! :-) The breakfasts were particularly good with a choice from full English, pancakes, pastries, cereal, fruit and yoghurt and dozens of different breads I was in my element! I agree that lunches and evening meals were a bit 'samey' but always tasty and plenty of choice. The snack bar was also good, if you want to, you can eat from 7am till 9pm! AI drinks selection was good, beer, 3 wines, cocktails and the usual shorts. The wine was pretty much like 'rocket fuel' but after a couple of glasses you didn't care anyway! Cocktails were lovely and definitely not weak. There never massive queues and the bar and self service beer and wine is always close by if you didn't want to wait anyway. In short if you're looking for a easy holiday with young children this is the place to go. The kids love it! If however you're looking for a quiet, sophisticated, adult break this is not the place for you. It is a family, i repeat FAMILY, hotel!!!More
If you want a quiet holiday-avoid.
If you've got kids, then this is the place for you. If you don't want obnoxious, screaming, rude little darlings ruining your holiday avoid this place like the plague. Why do parents think it's acceptable to let their kids do whatever they want on holiday? Serve themselves food and drink, with their bare hands. Anyway, the good points. Rooms lovely. Modern. Comfy bed. Very clean. Plenty of sunbeds with no need to reserve. Staff very friendly. The bad points. Wifi hit and miss. Mostly miss. Serious lack of toilets around the pool area. There are only two male and two female toilets. Not signposted. Full of Mosquitos. And no locks on the doors. Adult bar. Four of the seven nights I was in the supposed adult bar there were children in there. Screaming. If you're advertising it as an adult bar then make it so. Food. Luke warm. Not a well laid out restaurant. More traditional Greek food not done to cater for British would be nice. Kids helping themselves unsupervised with their hands. No more than a four star, but you get what you pay for. Would not stay here again.More
