We travelled 15 - 22 May with two adults and two children 6 and 1. We arrived in the morning and got our room straight away. The room was brand new not massive but how long do you really spend in it. The bed was huge and all the beds had matress toppers which were super comfortable. We asked for a ground floor room overlooking the pool and that's what we got. The food was really good loads of nice salad at lunch and plenty of choice in the evening. I do like the breakfast omelette that they cook for you which this hotel didn't have.
I was a bit worried travelling with a one year old as I didn't know how to get milk etc so here are my tips. The room had a kettle and a fridge. I was worried about no bath but the shower was massive and had an overhead shower and one on the side which I used for the baby she didn't mind it which surprised me. There is milk in the restaurant every meal time so you can fill your bottles and keep it in the fridge. The travel cots were huge. Take a wetsuit the pools weren't that warm. The front door was a nightmare as there was no lock and my daughter kept opening it. My other safety concerns were the pools had very slippery slabs especially the splash pool where we spent most of our time. The entertainment area is in a amphitheatre with steep concrete steps which my daughter kept climbing.
We found our room spotless it was cleaned every day and as my daughter slept at 1pm I'd go and find the maid and ask her to clean later which she kindly did every day.
A word of warning this hotel unlike others is not exclusively first choice there were two Russian companies operating out of the hotel.
The drinks were really good I liked the beer and I discovered Amaretto near the end of the holiday. The water is all bottled which was good we kept some in our fridge for the evening.
The beach was nice not massive but my children enjoyed it and you could swim out to a sandbank and stand up. The pool towels are available from the beach bar which is right at the far end of the hotel which is a bit weird ?
My other tip is to take a washing line as there was nowhere to dry your pool stuff and take inflatable boats / lilo's etc as the shop is mega expensive.
All in all we had a lovely holiday I won't go back because I'd like to try another holiday village.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

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. ... more less
