Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from an excellent week at the HV Kos. Everything from start to finish was excellent, the food, the rooms, the entertainment. The place was kept immaculate and the rooms we're spacious and lovely. Every member of our family (aged 31, 37, 3 and 7) had the most amazing time. We would all highly recommend this hotel to any family with children. We loved it so much that we have booked to go back next year. Thanks holiday village you we're great!!

We had a fantastic holiday. First time I have been to a holiday village and would definitely recommend it especially to families with young children. The entertainment team were excellent and kept my son happy with the nightly shows, discos and quizzes.
The staff at the hotel were really helpful and when we complained about our leaking air conditioning they came round to fix it and later brought around a complementary bowl of fruit and bottle of wine to apologise.

We travelled here in July for an 11 night holiday with our two children aged 7 & 4. We arrived in the early hours & there were sandwiches, fruit & drinks in reception waiting for us which I thought was a really lovely touch considering the time of night we had flown in. We had a lovely room, away from all the noise mainly (we were in block 600 opposite the splash pool). Air conditioning was a welcome addition plus a fridge too which helped as we got through so much bottled water.
Mealtimes were, depending on what time you went down a bit manic, best time for breakfast was around 9:30am & dinner about 6:30pm. Food was excellent, both of mine are quite picky eaters but found something at every meal. Don't really rate the children's section of the restaurant to be honest...very boring. My only gripe....loads of lovely salad at lunch time but no cold meat. We ate in the snack bar a couple of times at lunch time which was fine, burgers,hot dogs etc but we preferred the main restaurant.
We spent a few days at each pool starting with the splash pool. Fine for really little ones but please watch their feet on the bottom of the pool, very rough surface & both of mine cut their feet. Also watch the elephant head that fills with water & then tips out...it's quite a force so little ones can easily get knocked flying by it.
My favourite place was by the small family pool, reasonably quiet & with a good children's bit which is shallow enough for them to have fun but not deep enough for you to have to worry too much. Just watch the steps into this pool though, very slippery despite a handrail there. I fell & cracked my back on the steps & spent 4 days in rather a lot of pain, a huge black/purple bruise & popping ibuprofen. I did report it to the reps in case I needed attention at some stage but it was fine. Sadly with all the pools, getting up early to get sunbeds is a must. Either me or my husband was up at 5:30am to get a decent spot, obviously that would also depend on the time of year you went.
The main pool is well spaced out & also has a couple of little sections that are suitable for children still in arm bands etc. Again get up early for sunbeds.
Entertainment was provided nightly by the same team.....they work so hard & really do earn their money. We've been to a few all inclusive in the past & have never seen such good entertainment. There is something for everyone plus they do entertainment during the day too around the activity pool by the main building.; This was, to be honest, a bit loud & in your face so we didn't sit by this pool at all purely because the children wanted to go to the other pools.
We had a walk into Marmari just to be nosey really. Not much there, usual bars & little supermarkets if that's what you want. We took the bus into Kos Town one day, really cheap only 2 euros each way & a very quick half an hour journey from right outside the hotel.
Sam in the mini market is lovely, always very happy to help & excellent with the children.
Overall a really fantastic holiday, no complaints at all about any of it, food excellent, very clean & well maintained, plenty to suit all ages & needs. If we hadn't of already booked next years holiday, we would of been returning.

Room Tip: Away from the pools if you like it quiet, the closer to main reception, the quieter it is.

This is the first time we have ever been to a holiday village. My husband and I travelled with our 9 year old son who had a fantastic time as the hotel is solely geared for kids. I was very impressed with the room which was modern and had a full size bed for our son, not a camp bed as you would expect. The food was excellent and you could not complain as there was such a massive choice, the main buffet restaurant however resembled more of a canteen and there was no tea or coffee served at lunch or dinner only breakfast. The drinks were local and mediocre to say the least, nothing was cold and they were served in plastic cups. We saw families that had taken their own glasses with them as they had read the reviews before travelling which is something we did not do nor would have regardless. There was an adult bar and sports bar which served drinks in proper glasses which was better but the bar areas lacked any sort of ambience at all. Would I go again? no but I know that my son would love to go back.

Room Tip: The rooms nearest reception are quieter and have recently being refurbished

We have just got back from a two week holiday and had a great time.The reps were excellent towards my daughter and made her feel really welcome in the kids clubs Sid,Donna and Zak were reps she really liked.She went to a theatre school called Razzmatazzz 3 times and gained a lot of confidence with the help of Jenna and Daisy who run the group.We have been on numerous holidays abroad but we havnt seen an entertainment team as good as this before.Helen,Dee,Ross and Cara are all really good entertainers but Stevie G is a one off entertainer he could be on Tv he is that funny and good at what he does with the kids and the adults.Hotel food was good but only problem was food didn't have much flavour as advertised,such as spicy chicken wings but they weren't spicy.A few things could be improved at the hotel such as colder bottles of water in extreme heat also slush puppies were available at the pool bar but were never ready.plastic cups for drinking beer was also not good luckily I had read the review and brought a plastic pint glass with me from home.Overall the Hotel is great and all the activities are in view from the middle of the complex an astroturf football pitch is really good and I would advise anyone to get the coaching from Matt and Alex the football coaches who are very good.Hope this review has helped to explain the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel in July for a friends wedding & can honestly say we had a great time. The wedding was just lovely.
Rooms are lovely and perfect for a family of 4, didn't spend that much time in the room anyway as there was so much to do on site for the kids. Great how they were entertained for the week all of which was on our doorstep.
Staff are friendly & we always found something to eat. On occasions, we'd choose what we wanted to eat but then see something else we fancied too!! Mexican night was great!
Staff in the restaurant are very quick to take your plate as soon as you put your knife & fork down but I guess this keeps the restaurant moving for everyone.
Take your own pint cups as drinks are served in small paper cups during the day.
Plenty of activities for kids which were included in the all inclusive. Ours did water walking, climbing wall, aerial adventure & body zorbs. They had a fab time! Take trainers though!
As for the wedding, it was just beautiful. Perfect beach location which was breezy so ladies use extra hairspray!! Least it kept the heat down though. Decorated location was just beautiful & the staff are on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Reception was in the Italian Restaurant & there was loads of food & a large selection. Drinks were constantly refilled by a lovely member of staff. The restaurant was decorated just lovely too & it was nice having a private room. We chose to go into the entertainment where the team made a fuss of the bride getting her up to do some Greek dancing as the wedding was on a Wed (16th July). Helen even dedicated the last song to the bride & groom which was a lovely touch!
Will definitely be returning to this HV. I have serious holiday blues now!

Just returned from a week at holiday village kos!
We had a fantastic time and a great family holiday.
My children loved the splash pool kept them entertained for hours.
the food is what i expected from this hotel its not a la carte dinning so dont expect it. It has a good selection of hot and cold food and always pizza and chips if you dont like the themed food they put on.
Entertainment: the evening entertainment team were brilliant great for all ages, they all put hard work and effot into there preformances.
my daughter has swimming lessons with Jess, this has made her more confident in the water and she has learnt her basic strokes this week. She has only just turned 3!
The airport transfer was quick only stopped at the holiday village.

i dont know how people find faults in this hotel, it is a family hotel and you do get splashed by the pool, it is noisy from children playing in the day, but thats what i expected!

Now the only the only things i can be piccy about is, bottled water at the pool bar wasnt cold ( it was very busy)
and the pillows in the room wernt great but still had a good night sleep!

All in all if you have young children this holiday is brill and loads for them to do. I wouldnt recomend this to a couple going for a relaxing break.

hope this review has helped you to decide weather to book this for your next family holiday
