Am looking at taking my dd to the First Choice Holiday Village in Rhodes and wondered if anybody had any experiance of these places. They seem to have good reviews, with a couple of dodgy ones thrown in for good measure.

Am thinking ofr going the 1st week in May 2012 - is this a good time to go to Greece, i want to avoid the really hot weather but want it to be warm enough that it feels like we are on holiday.

Any advice would be very welcome

We went to the Holiday Village in Lanzarote in July 2010 and had a great holiday. I guess it depends what you want from your holiday. Dd (nearly 4 at the time) loved it, swimming pool and kids club were particular hits with her. Food wasn't the best but certainly not the worst we've had, kids stuff was very repetitive but they are free to eat adult stuff instead.

Woolleybear I'm going there in two weeks with DS, so it's good to know that it's decent! Can't wait, in fact!

RPM I know someone who took their 1yo to the Cyprus Holiday Village and loved it, think they went in May and weather was lovely, it will probably be similar weather in Rhodes at that time. Why don't you look up some reviews (Trip Advisor etc) and see what the people who went this May and last May said about the weather while they were there?

We did the sharm el sheik one in Egypt two years running, rooms were amazing, food great. We loved it

I was only looking at this brochure last night. The Rhodes one looks fantastic.
The one in the Costa Del Sol looks lovely too. Oh flippin eck, the ones in Tenerife and Lanzarote look good too.
How do I decide?
