What a fantastic week we have just had at the Holiday Village Rhodes - so sad to have to come home.

We hardly saw my 11 year old son the whole week - the kids club, continual activities and water park kept him occupied and happy the whole time. His highlight was definately the Chocolate Party - they really should have one for the adults too!!!!

Rooms were spacious and clean - the beds so comfortable it was hard to get up in the morning.

All the staff made the holiday so special - everyone so friendly, accommodating and happy, nothing was too much trouble.

The hidden gem (which didnt seem to be used to its fullest potential) was the adult only bar on the Relax side. We would drop my son off to the 2100 kids club and chill out there until 2300 when kids club ended, it was a sanctuary.

One suggestion would be to get a another pool table as the only one was constanlty being used and there is certainly plenty of room for 1 or 2 more.

We would definatley go back - infact have already started thinking of booking for next year

Got back this week from H.V.Rhodes,what a fantastic holiday great hotel and staff,rooms were spacious with bath and seperate shower.cleaned every day and new sheets.air con takes a while to cool down so ask for a second key card and leave in slot.Tammy on relax reception is really happy to help so just ask if trouble with anything.swim up bar is great on relax side as is adult only bar if your kids go to club or games room for a while,Alex the barman is good at his job and will bring drinks out to you if you're seated outside.Beach is only about ten minutes walk and there are pedalos,kayaks,jetskis,donuts etc.Beach is sandy but gets stoney as you go into sea.Food here was great for breakfast,lunch and dinner,snacks on relax side were baguettes or salad.Anything else is on activity side over the road for which there is an underpass,there they serve hot dogs,doner kebabs,gyros kebabs,pork on skewers,sandwiches pizza and chips.Between 4 and 5 tea and cakes are in reception.We asked to change our room from upstairs to downstairs so kids could sleep in room in afternoon while we caught some sun right outside,we spoke to Karl Harris, the guest relations guy,he was brilliant,so keen to help and got us moved as soon as poss.All the staff there really made us feel welcome,would recommend this hotel/holiday had wonderful time but had a look for next year and is just too expensive, so if you're going soon,enjoy,it's amazing.

We have just returned from 2 weeks all inclusive at the Holiday Village Rhodes resort, and as a family with a 6 year old who wanted to 'stay forever', have to say it was fabulous value. The hotel is great, the waterfun facilities are unrivalled and we had a great time. we have already decided to return for our main holiday next year. It is built for families - from the water park to the food. The rooms are great and there is so much to do in terms of scheduled activities that you'll be spoiled for choice.

First time we have been to a holiday village type hotel with our two boys aged 8 & 11.
We stopped at the activity side of the hotel which was fantastic the pool is one of the safest i have ever come across a few missing tiles but sure they will be replaced out of season.
Our youngest son had arm bands on during our first week so we enrolled him for swimming lessons and by the end of it he was confident and could swim almost 10 mtres ! ( Thank you ).
Entertainers do a very good job trying to cater for all but must admit this is not for teenagers in my opinion.Staff are one of the best i have come across in many years they are friendly and nothing is to much trouble.
Could do with another self service counter as it only has the one and this then creates a wait at the pool bar. Food was about as good as it gets on these type of holidays no complaints.
Our accomadation was a family type room and was perfect for our needs.
We had the pleasure of meeting some very nice people and i would recommend this for a young family like ours.
The hotel does has a few teething problems but nothing major and i am sure they will be resolved very quickly.

Hello, thanks for all your comments. Our Swim Academy instructors are all ASA qualified but more importantly they love their jobs helping to improve your kid’s confidence in the water - they’ll be really pleased to hear this. We hope you come back sometime in the future or maybe try another of our Holiday Villages next time.

We were quite worried about going after reading trip advisor reviews. However, this is a great place and the staff are all very helpful. A few comments below.

Food
Very nice, good variety and no problems with sickness or diarrhoea.
Entertainment
Very good, mainly for the kids but the I Kandy team, craig, Dave, Gavin, kayleigh, Clare were fantastic and very entertaining. We stayed up for the shows which were great.
Sunbeds
DIfficult to get one but you could always find somewhere to sit
IF I have any criticisms it would be that the clubs don't cater for teenagers. Ours are 12 and 13 but there wasn't much do to for them. Having said that, they both had a good time.
Overall it was a great place and we all enjoyed it.

What an awesome place!!!! Just returned from 2 weeks of fun and hot sun!!!
This place is truely outstanding in every area!
Flight over was a breeze and we were met at relax reception to the smoothest check in ever, (think the champagne helped with this) as well as the cheerful receptionist and the fact that our luggage was just whisked away to our rooms!!!

Room was for 2 adults and one child, this was perfect, very clean all fortnight and the bed is a pleasure to sleep on! never heard a sound from anyone else whilst in our room! Maid was superb and worked above and beyond call of duty! No issues with cleanliness at all around the hotel and i am fussy with this!!

Pools are truly fantastic! Relax pools and swim up bar are great, but we prefered the activity pools for plenty of fun, games, songs and dances all day long!! (Really not in your face either,) Matty and his quiz was great!! But i did love the aqua fit the best...not at all energetic just great fun...Craig is fab and tried to teach us the Salsa once but think I prefered Daves whirl pool bath in the pool and The Little yellow fish!!!). The high ropes, hamster ball and water park are a most as well....all great fun led by dedicated cheerful staff!! My daughter loved playing in the water park with friends she had made and taking part in the fun and games around the hotel all day!!!

My daughter only went to the kids club a few times but always got in the activity she wanted and had great fun! Chocolate party was a real hit, thanks guys!!

First choice should be very proud of all their staff at the holiday village, Carl the guest manager....is fab, and works hard to make everyones holiday special, the high five entertainment team blew us away with their shows and could always been seen working hard entertaining all of us throughtout the day as well!! My 7 year old daughter loved all the entertainment at night, starting at 7.30 for kids disco/games finishing at 11.00 with i mix disco!! We couldnt get her in bed!!! Best entertainment at a First choice hotel we have ever seen....Hats off to you guys!!!

In the buffet restaurant you will find very hard working chefs and assistants constantly suppling guests with piping hot, tasty food that was full of variety! We visited the Italian restaurant twice and had no problems booking a table on the days we wanted! Was nice change to be waited on!

The bar staff make some very nice and strong cocktails.....be warned!!! (Not complaining but they do taste great and are strong!) Betty at outside bar always had big smile for everyone!!

One night my daughter left her bag (Complete with purse and MP3 player) in the main buffet restaurant which was handed into reception and returned to us on same night!

The sunloungers was never a problem on the relax side and several could be found all day long. There is more of an issue on Activity side but i am afraid to say that this is due to guests reserving sunbeds and not using them all or leaving them empty all day!! We did always get a bed and I am not an early riser in a morning!!

We did have a lovely day out to Rhodes Old Town....really worth a visit and hotel staff are very helpful in directing us to bus stops!

Could keep going on with this review forever, was an awesome place, well worth 5 sun stars....if you are thinking of going then please dont hesitate, you will love it!!!

Overall a fantastic, clean freindly place..... Best Holiday Ever!!!
