We spent a week at the Lindos Blu in early October and wished we had stayed for a fortnight. We are pretty fussy about hotels we choose, and which room we stay in, but the Blu is one of the few where any room would be at least excellent in terms of facilities and outlook to a fabulous view. The hotel has an adults only policy: very sensible as the stylish architecture has some hazards like unguarded edges and water features that could be a worry for very young children. The result is a primarily couples hotel which is perfectly focused on its core client group and delivers a very refined and restful experience. The hotel is good to look at and is located with a fabulous view from almost everywhere in the hotel. The outdoor areas are largely shaded by the hotel, which is great if like me you need to be careful in strong sun. Sunbathers can find heat if they need to though, and the hotel has a private beach area at sea level which is a traditional sunbathers paradise, with drinks service from the bar too.
Bedrooms are modern as spacious with a great shower and spa bath complete with a window if you want to enjoy the view as you bubble.
Food is of a great standard: we didn't go inclusive as Lindos town has so many fantastic restuarants on offer, but looking at the menus we would consider this in future. We chose to eat in the hotel instead of going to town on two occasions, which says a lot about what's on offer here.
Leaving the staff to last because they are some of the best I've met. The client facing staff are incredibly friendly and attentive, and seem to have the time to engage that little bit more with their patrons. One step back from this is a management team with fearsomely high standards: we got an impression that behind the scenes there is little tolerance for slackness despite the relaxed ambience at the front of house. The staff make every effort to get to know the customers personally, and are genuinely disappointed if there is any part of their stay which is not up to the team standard. Special mentions for our brilliant daytime bar staff, and our personal waiter, who greeted us by name as we arrived for our first breakfast. Notice I say ours. That's just how it felt. Totally personal in a top class setting. Well done Lindos Blu.
