Arrived on the 8th June 2011. Had booked a swim up room in the relaxed area.
We arrived at the hotel at about 22:45. Myself and my fiancee were greeted with champaign, and a small buffet was laid on for us in the activity side whilst our luggage was taken to our room.
When we arrived at our room it was above expectation! It was very modern, clean and spacious. As it was the swim up room the veranda had two loungers, three small chairs and a table. The pool looked very inviting with all it's flashing multicoloured lights.
The next day we were greeted by the most pleasant and professional staff any 5star hotel has! This was our first time to Greece and both in and out of the hotel the Greek people are very humble and sincere. They always greeted us with big sincere smiles and hand shakes at the hotel buffet hall and restaurants. They could not do enough for us.
The food was the best I've ever tasted in an all inclusive with a huge amount of veriety. Some of the food stayed the same on a day to day basis whilst the rest of it changed with all sorts of continental goodies to choose from.
The Italian restaurant at the hotel provided very fresh produce. And be warned the portions were huge :) although I managed to eat all of mine.
We went to the adult bar on some nights which had some local entertainers/singers and karaoke nights. It was mostly quite mellow there were you could enjoy a cocktail or two, however made from local spirits (but alcohol is alcohol).
The entertainment in the activity area was obviously aimed at the children of the hotel. Did get quite repetitive but it is only there to get the kids involved. One night we seen an African acrobatic display which was very entertaining.
Outside the hotel the town centre is a street made up of lots of little local shops and some tavernas which were just lovely. I would recommend going to Versili's Cafe as he is just lovely, again he can't do enough for you, and he will make you any cocktail that you like even if it isn't on his menu!
The Holiday Village Rhodes in the resort of Kolymbia is the best hotel I have stayed in. It was very clean, very friendly and the waiting staff were the best!
Definitely 5 star and definitely will be going back there! Worth every penny!
