This hotel is hard to fault but will get the negatives out the way first:
Out of the hotel is nothing unless you have transport or pay 20 euros to get to Lindos - we had scooters which were fun but not really recommended for insurance purposes.
The transfers apparently take forever from the airport so allow 75 euros each way for a taxi & get there in under an hour fully refreshed.
The evening meal in the buffet is pretty bland & luke warm at best but selection OK.
The restaurant manager is not very friendly & needs somebody to have a word or replace him.
Reception area is a bit 'airport terminal' & needs atmosphere, music, etc.
Now the good points:
Staff very friendly (except the restaurant manager) - Mihela at the pool bar didn't stop smiling even though she was constantly on the go serving cocktails, beers & shorts. If you sit there long enough, you may even find the odd shot sitting in front of you!!
The rooms are superb - clean, massive beds, mini bar restocked every other day but please remember to put the 'clean my room' tag on the door.
The pool is fresh water so a little cold but great to cool off, massive & there are loads of sunbeds so no 6.00 reserving required. Beach towels are free & can be replaced every other day.
The pool restaurant is better than the evening buffet with good kebabs & is open most of the day (& evening)
Although Lindos is the only real accessible town from the hotel, it is great both during the day & evening. Buzzing shops, bars, restaurants & clubs - Georgio's is a great find for Mojitos & the rooftop bars/restaurants all have views over the town.
All-in-all we had a great time at The Princess Andriana but a week was enough as I would have got cabin-fever staying in the hotel any longer due to its location.
Tip: The Princess Andriana cocktail goes down very easy & is pretty potent!!!
