Myself, my husband and our 9 year old son stayed here in June 2014. Our room was in the relax area, and we had upgraded to a swim up room, but unfortunately our room was swim up to a pond sized pool, not the main pool. Although to room itself was great the swim up was unused as my kid wanted to be in the big pool with the other children.
The resort itself is best described as a 5* Butlins in the sun. The food is great for an All Inclusive resort and the entertainments teams (day and evening) are superb. The buffet style restaurant was well run and the food was always well stocked and warm. We never waited more than 1 minute for a table to be given to us. The breakfast was varied but did get a bit tedious after 2 weeks. The drink selection is also limited in this area but you can always bring in a drink from another bar if you want to. Lunch time was just as good as dinner.
We (surprisingly) enjoyed the evening entertainment. It's Saturday night TV entertainment live on stage and the kids absolutely love i5live which is on everynight. During the day we used the aerial adventure, the lazy river and got a lot of time in the archery area hoeing our Katniss Everdeen skills!
Kolymbia itself seem to be suffering under the strain of the All Inclusive resorts but the shop keepers do not hassle you when you do venture out.
We also hired a car from Nigel through Rodos Cars that are on site all day and visited Rhodes Town (old, new and acropolis, all within walking distance), Butterfly Valley, Seven Springs and Lindos. All of which we would recommend, however parking in Rhodes Town is not easy so taking the bus is a better option.
All in all we got what we wanted, a luxurious, fun, relaxing holiday where we could spend as much or as little time together as we wanted.
