“Lets clear up the confusion in these reviews!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

The vassos apartments are typical 2 star holiday apartments. The are typically Greek and as Greek accommodation goes they are reasonably kitted out. They kitchen had a kettle, good fridge, double drainer, one tap which ran hot or tepid depending on time of day. There were plenty of cups knifes glasses etc for the 4 people the 2 bed apartment ( no.2) was designed for. Being Greek, none of it matched. You wont get washing up liquid supplied and will get one loo roll usually. Absolutely typical in Greece. The bathroom has a rough shower but great water pressure, a shower curtain (unusual in Greece). The whole apartment was cleaned daily ( bar sunday) and beds changed twice a week. The both bedrooms are airconditioned - this is payable locally at 50 euro a week, and 90 for two weeks. We only used one room so had one aircon unit which was very efficient. there is an outside court yard with a line to dry clothes with a hose, usefull for washing your feet etc after the beach and keeping sand out of the apartments. If you generally spend your holidays in self catering in Spain, Portugal or the Canaries you will probably be very disappointed. If however, like us, you love Greece for the little quirks, the laid back atmosphere and the real taste of the country the Vassos apartments and are excellent choice. Bookable through Olympic in the UK i think. hope this helps. I have worked in various tour operators for many years and hope this gives a true insight to you in what to expect.

Room Tip: book a 2 bed room, and buy aircon for one - extra space worth any supplement.

After reading other reviews we knew what we were getting, a basic appartment in a beautiful villiage. Very lucky as upstairs so able to open the windows and view was breath taking. Beds were comfortable and loads of space but cooking equipment all a bit past its best, with only one ring on the cooker working. Would have loved to have the option of both ceiling fans working, the one in the kitchen slow and bedroom one removed. Not everyone likes expensive air-con. Toilet was a bit of a challenge as frequently failed to flush. However it was all cleaned daily, apart from Sunday so that was great.
What was irritating? cat smell and hall lights left on(they shine into room 3)
Otherwise it was definately more than ok.

Room Tip: Room 3 is the best but does have the problem of hall lights

We are regular visitors to Lindos and have been since 1996. We have stayed at various appartments some very good some bad. The Vassos appartments are admittedley a good size with two large wardrobes in each room. We stayed in room three which is on the first floor with splendid views over Lindos bay and the village below the acropolis. However, if on arrival you are allocated this room offer your concerns immediately regarding the shower. The shower valve is often tempremental and at times does not work, thankfully room one downstairs was empty and with full access to the room we used this facility more than once. Waste of time complaining as the shower requires a new valve. The toilet system also leaks and the floor is continually wet. The bedding is not to a standard expected with occassion stains (brown) and torn. The appartment is very tired looking and requires a decent cosmetic uplift. Yes they are in a good location near to the village centre and direct access to the main beach and the price to stay there was reasonable hence the adage you get what you pay for. The kichen facilities are what we expected with only one glass for a drink of beer. The furniture in the courtyard area is minging and to our knowledge no one used the yard during our stay. Oh well you pay your money you takes your chance. Returning next year for four weeks but not at the vassos.

We've been to Lindos several times before blah blah blah.
Apartments are just up from cat corner so are handy for the main beach at the Teo's / Coralli end. The rooms are a good size and were clean. The courtyard such as it is was always wet and thus attracted those big brown and yellow wasps looking for a drink of water. The problem was solved by replacing the outside tap.
We had apartment 1 which had only one working electrical socket which was a bit disappointing. If you need more sockets go to one of the supermarkets which sell extension blocks.

The kettle in our apartment worked but didn't automatically cut out when it boiled. Kettles in other apartments either didn't work or leaked. I don't know if the cooker worked as we didn't use it.
Cats were regular visitors to the courtyard and in fact there was some cat poo at the far end of the courtyard. One cat actually managed to get into our apartment through the window. Another cat got trapped in another apartment and apparently peed on one of the beds. Don't say you weren't warned.
There is no working lock on the outside of the block and the front door can be hard to keep closed (apartment 1 is right next to the front door). The front door also squeeked very loudly whenever it was opened or closed, this can be an issue if you have neighbours coming in after a night at one of the nightclubs but didn't really bother us that much.

In short it was alright but others are better. If it's only a few quid more go elsewhere.

Apartment basic and furniture dated, (but aren't they all in Greece.?) and it is afterall only a two star facility.
But the comfort and room was more than adequate; the view of the bay lovely, (you need one of the apartments on the first floor), and the location in Lindos could not be bettered.

We stayed at the Vassos a few years ago. I have just seen it on Olympic for £1649.41 for 2 weeks in August. This was the worst accomadation we have stayed in when visiting Lindos.
I really hope the plumbing has been sorted out as the tank in our bathroom dripped on the loo roll and made a puddle on the floor. The bathroom floor had a dirty rubber mat on so you didn't slip over. The beds had sheets so old you could see through them. The pillows were about as big as a house brick and as hard as one. The crocks and cutlery were dirty and old. The hot plate smelt when I turned it on. There was a warddrobe in the kitchen and a tatty old garden table with 2 plastic chairs. Old fans on the celing that didn't work and a sink in the bedroom that didn't work. 1 mirror only big enough for a Barbie Doll. We were on the ground floor so it was very dark.
If you are thinking of booking this I would make sure these things have been sorted. I never expect perfection in Greece as I think it's all part of the charm and as I love Lindos I didn't let it ruin my holiday. I would not go to the Vassos again though.

Having returned from Lindos and staying at the Vassos Apartments it is only just to post a review. The apartments are 100% fit for purpose for visiting Lindos, they are ideally located for a day on any of the glorious beaches and ease of access into the wonderful village especially of an evening. The apartments are clean although basic in terms of amenities.
The Olympic rep in our case "Sara" was very helpful and readilly available.
