We stayed in this hotel the last week of august and it completely lived up to our expectations. We booked a suite with our 2 children and we were given an incredible 2 rooms, huge terrace overlooking vlicha bay and a very nice bathroom. Décor is modern chic with lavender, lime and cream colours. The Hotel has a very nice spa with excellent staff and reasonable prices. The swimming pool is very big but the beach is so lovely that we hardly used the main and the other small pool.
The Mare together with Lindos Blu (for couples only-no kids) have a reserved area on vlicha bay which is actually in the nicest part of the bay with rather fine sand, whereas at the opposite end it's just pebbles. There are 3 restaurants: breakfast and dinner are served in the main restaurant which to our disappointment was an indoor restaurant with rather cold air conditioning, and even though food was very good with an amazing choice it was a bit of a shame not being able to sit outside. For lunch the pool restaurant served really good dishes, international and of course impeccably executed greek specialities. We never tried the pool snack bar. If you have kids expect very little entertainment for them in terms of miniclubs, there was only a very young girl who offered to take our children to a dedicated area with drawing and colouring activities. In the evening there were some shows, possibly 3 in a week and they were quite good. Reception and suites are at the right top of the hill while a funicular and various lifts take you down to the restaurants and finally the beach. Do not go for this Hotel if you have very young children or have walking difficulties as there is a lot of walking up and down the stairs to do. Dont miss the nearby Lindos Town with its amazing Acropolis (taxis are very cheap €6 to 8) definitely worth a visit.
Overall it was a beautiful experience and we would no doubt recommend it!
