Some negative reviews lately on here for this place.
I've read them and can only assume that, although the people writing them have clearly had a bad experience on their holiday, I feel some of the comments on the type of clientele who generally stay at the Holiday Village greatly differ to the type of customer we shared the hotel with last August.
We're a family of 3 ( our daughter's 9 ) and stayed here for two weeks.
The weather was great, albeit very hot, the room was clean and the food was excellent. The people we met were, in the main, nice families and bore no resemblance to the ' Chavs ' and ' Jeremy Kyle ' types listed in other reviews.
If the hotel is happy to accept large groups for weddings in the quieter season they should maybe review this policy as it is marketed mainly as a family friendly resort. All I can say is that in high season when we were there it was mostly families and decent ones at that.
There are a few negatives though. You may not be in one of the village type rooms, instead being in the main hotel block itself. This might not be made clear enough at the time of booking and can maybe lead to disappointment. The sunbed race starts early. Some peeps are out at 6:30am. I got up for a pee at that time one morning, looked out and there they were! We're quick to slate the Germans but this hotel is almost exclusively Brits and we're just as bad. If you go down after 9 you'll struggle to get a bed in high season.
Plenty positives though.
I found the facilities great. The pools and waterpark were excellent. I read somewhere a complaint regarding the lifeguards? If anything I found them to be a tad over zealous, which I suppose when you see the tragic event in Egypt last week, surely can't be a bad thing.
The food was excellent. Really good and varied, and always fresh.
Our room was kept immaculate and was very modern.
The staff were mostly great. Always smiling and very helpful.
The kids club staff, particularly the theatre school ( which cost extra ) were really good and worked very hard.
We had a great holiday. Sure there were a few niggles but nothing major.
I would say the hotel isn't a five star.
More a quality four star. I'm not arguing with anyone's negative reviews by the way, I'm simply giving a truthful review of our experience at the Holiday Village Rhodes in August last year.
As a footnote, we never go back to the same hotel, and as such are booked into the hotel down the road from this one this July.
