“Do Not cater for our kind of family..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Booked this as part of a family holiday which included 4 different famlies. When booking we advised that each room would probably need twins and a sofa bed, due to ages of children, we were advised that of course this was possible. When we arrived and reminded the hotel manager of this he advised they do not cater for this kind of family... So my sister had to share a double bed with her 15 year old daughter and i was on a camp bed which sent my back into spasms for 2 weeks - if i wanted to stay on a camp bed i would have gone camping and saved a hell of a lot of money.
Each morning one of us had to get up at 6am to reserve the sun loungers outside of our rooms, as we were on the ground floor if we didnt do this people ended up basically sitting on our terrace.
other then the Management the staff were lovely. This is not value for money and there is no quiet areas for you to actually relax

Dear reviewer,

Thank you for taking time to write a review based on your holiday experience. I am very surprised to read your comments though, as I personally have never and actually could not confirm to you or any other Guest that your room will have twin beds. And this only because all our rooms are equipped only with double and queen size beds.
Concerning your comment that after your arrival you reminded me about your rooms request, I am afraid that you should probably confused me with someone else, as we never have the chance to meet in person. Apart from this I would have never replied 'we do not cater for this kind of family', simply because we do cater for all families that choose to stay in our Hotel, in the best possible way.

Despite this issue that you were unhappy with, I am glad to read that you have enjoyed the Services from our Staff.

Kind regards

Stamoulos Nikos

We stayed at the Holiday Village Rhodes for a week(9th July) and can honestly say the whole experience has been fantastic!We stayed in the Activity Area(we opted for a first floor as I didn't feel a swim up was suitable for my 22 month old daughter)but it faced directly onto the pool and only took 2 seconds to get to.I would suggest setting an alarm for bang on 8am and putting towels down on a lounger though as they seem to get snapped up fairly quickly!
We used the buffet for breakfasts,lunch and evening meals and the food and service was second to none!Nothing is too much trouble and the hotel staff are extremely good with children.We also dined a la carte a few nights of our stay at the Tex Mex,Greek Grill and Italian.All were superb!We couldn't find fault anywhere.
The evening entertainment was great for our two kids.The lover the Widgets and Hi 5 Live crew,especially Scottish Rory(he is a natural with the crowd and had everyone laughing lol)The free bar was ideally situated next to the entertainment seating area where cocktails,drinks,slush puppies,popcorn and ice-cream were available for you at your convenience.
The only thing I would suggest people do before travelling,especially with young kids,is ensure you have travel insurance that covers sickness or injury.My. Daughter ended up with a rash so we had to call the doctor out(110 euros)as it turned out,it was only heat rash and we can claim back the money on our insurance once we are home but def something to keep in mind that these things can happen and they can be costly.
Overall,we have had the best time and would highly recommend HV Rhodes to anybody,you are guaranteed a fantastic holiday! :)

Spent 2 weeks here in May/June.

Had a fab time, hotel staff were excellent, even leaving me a bottle of bubbly in the room on my birthday.

My 2 year old was I'll in the first week and the hotel staff very quickly called the doctor, photocopying our documents for us so the insurance claim could be processed immediately and allowed us to draw cash (no ATM on site) to pay the doctor.

The resort is very family friendly, with numerous play areas and pools to make the most of.

Only downside (no fault of the resort) was our apartment backed onto a neighbouring hotel which played extremely loud music until 11pm on a Friday and Saturday night....we were in the 'Relax' area and we had a 2yr old with us, so not the best.

Overall, great time and place!

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

We had a swim-up room i Tropical Area - and loved it! Our 2 boys (age 7) used the pool all morning and in the afternoon we used the big pools! All very good:)
Entertainment in English (the kids didn't understand a lot - but enjoyd it) was very good. Doobley and Gismo has got their own beds in the bedrooms at home!! Activity for the kids was good, and the 3 activity people was sooo nice and friendly to the children!
Great rooms! Cleaned every day - never a problem!! Minibar could have been refilled once or twies..
The breakfast buffet was never crowded and all time great! The lunch and dinner buffet was allways fresh and very good:) Loved the show-Cooking!!!
The restaurants was excellent - we visited the all once!
Lovely staff and great SPA!
Used the gym and that was the only complaint - could have been better (some needed to be fixed and it could have been more Space) - it was always people there in the morning!

Room Tip: Swim-up rooms are great! Tropical Area is the best - in our opinion!

My Family and I have just returned from a 2 night holiday all inclusive here at Holiday Village Rhodes Activity Area. My Children are 7 and 5 and we had such an amazing time. The Food in all of the restaurants including the main buffet was spectacular the F&B manager John was ever so helpful to accommodate us with bookings and always a warm welcome when being seated at the buffet. Evie was the most pleasant of waitresses always a smile and a hug for the kids. The Entertainment Team were amazing Hannah, Paige, Lee, Jimmy and Ruiri work so hard well done! The entire village is kept immaculate. Even though it was a family holiday both our kids loved the kids club and attended the 9:30pm sessions which allowed us to have a drink at the Adults bar, or a meal alone which we never expected to happen but it was a nice surprise!!!! All in all I rate this resort 10/10 I could not fault it in anyway and we look forward to returning there in the Future. Thank you so much to all the Staff at HVR you do an amazing job! Well Done!!!

Our family have just returned from a week in this wonderful holiday village. We arrived with our daughter, son in law and three year old twin boys.
A 45 minute coach trip from Rhodes airport soon went by and when we pulled up at the village we were met by the management team! They gave us a glass of sparkling wine and quickly put us through the registration process before giving us instructions of where our rooms were located. The rooms were on the upper floors in the Activity area 2111 and 2713. They were perfect for our needs with modern furniture, lots of storage and a lovely bathroom with a separate rain shower. The balconies with table and chairs and clothes dryer overlooked the large swimming pool.
The pools in the complex were just beautiful, very clean and water that felt a bit cool but ok when you got in. Loud music was played around the Activity pools area from mid morning to late afternoon. We felt this music was not required as most families were either playing with their children, reading or listening to their own music through headphones.
The boys just loved the pirate ship area where there are many water slides for different ages. A 'lazy river' ran around this area which was great for just relaxing floating in a rubber ring.
There is a play park with swings and slides, a five aside football pitch, volley ball, and tennis court for the more energetic!
The food quality and variety in the main buffet restaurant is truly amazing. We could not get over the different meals on offer every day. The boys just loved to go to the special area in the buffet where they had their own selection of foods to choose from.
For three nights you could choose to dine a la carte in an Italian, Greek or Mexican restaurant. We chose the Italian and Greek where a great selection of authentic dishes were on offer. The only comment here which detracted from the atmosphere was the beautiful Italian music which was drowned out by music from the main entertainment stage.
The boys went to the 'Widgets' puppet show each evening which was very popular with all the youngsters. The entertainment team were fantastic and all worked very hard.
A word now about ALL the staff from the cleaners to the management team, a fantastic team of people who really go the extra mile to ensure guests enjoy their holiday. A few who really helped us were Rachael and Celina from the guest relations team, the manager of the buffet and his team and George one of his many hard working waiters.
When our week was up we had a send off like no other holiday we had been on. The whole management team were lined up to see us on our coach thanking us for coming and giving us water for the journey back to the airport.
A big thank you to everyone at the village for giving us a memorable week that we will never forget.
ps. Wi fi everywhere is a great FREE extra.

Room Tip: A room in the Activity area on an upper floor. 2111 and 2713 were perfect.

Going to give a review of how I found the hotel during my holiday. I will also leave a couple of tips that might enhance your holiday.
The hotel is in three areas delux,relax and activity. I booked the relax side and have to say this suited me as we were far enough away from the bustle of the activity side although it was just ins away on the same complex. When booking the room I did not pay extra for a swim up pool but in the special request box on the booking I asked for a room on the ground floor. On arrival we were given a swim up room. Keep this in mine when booking. The only difference other than the price for delux is that you get a bath robe and the use of a ps3 plus a restaurant that serves the same food as the main buffet that relax and activity cannot get in. The room we were in was excellent and the cleaner was great. Ladies the hair drier is not powerful so you may wish to take one with you. Kettle, tv and fridge with full air conditioning.
The food was excellent with plenty of choice I honestly cannot pick fault with it at all.
The staff were brilliant and the entertainment team were the best I have come across. The shows at night vary and so does the quality. The host Rory is brilliant and keeps everything flowing.
Pool bar is well staffed with everything you could want and the ice cream is amazing and never runs out. 6 slush machines with different flavours that keeps both adults and kids
happy.
Pool towels have a €10 deposit that is returned when the towels are handed in. You can change them 3 times a week.
There is a safe in the room and they charge €38 for two week hire. This should be free as the holiday is not cheap.
We left the complex a few times and would recommend that you go to the harbour were the kids can play and you can have a nice meal and drink at a reasonable cost. There are 2 harbours and we preferred the 2 nd. This harbour is to the left of the first one you see and you will not be disappointed.
The town is ok and has shops restaurants and bars should you wish to go out. The centre is a 10 min stroll.
I hope this helps. Happy holidays
