“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

We visited the Holiday Village in August 2010, having read several months of quite negative reviews we were understandably concerned about what we would find.
We were pleasantly surprised!
Firstly, please bear in mind if considering booking here that First Choice Holiday Villages are predominantly for families, so if you are looking for a romantic break as a couple, its probably not for you.
Yes, any new build is going to have initial problems, but having been to 3 other Holiday Villages, we really enjoyed ourselves here.
Everyone has different expectations of a holiday, hence the varying reviews I think.
I can only say as we found it and we had a lovely time. The food was better than I had expected. The drinks were good, the facilities were excellent and the First Choice staff amazing.
Special mention must go to Matty( who seems to pop up with his 'quiz' in every village we've been to )and the guys at the football academy( esp Mark) .They are a real credit to First Choice.
Are there things that could improve... of course there are, but we had a great time and think a holiday is really what you make it.

Hello, thanks for your post. Our Holiday Villages are aimed at families as you say and but we do try and cater for both children and adults. We’ll pass on your comments to Matty and Mark, we’re sure they love to hear them.

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.
