“A huge anthill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I stayed in the hotel last year . Yes, the accomodation is perfect and it's the only thing it can boast. The stuff is half Russian and is extremely rude. Greek stuff is rude and unfriendly also. The lack of food of a very doubt quality. Noise day and night. Hustle and bustle everywhere. Screams of drunk Russians, cry of children, overcrowded territory. But staying there I've found for this year Sentido Lindos bay and was very happy staying there

Except for the accommodation process, it was good. Accommodation process is the disaster for this hotel! Hunting for Wi-Fi was annoying.
The food was rather good. Exceptional thanks for pasta, pizza, duck meat, mussels and cakes.

We spent two weeks from 25th June, over for my daughter's wedding on Vlycha Beach at the Lindian Jewel....

Firstly the downside and I've got to be honest...there are more positives though....

1. Don't book the Village unless you are superfit...lot's of steps and slopes to conquer, check you have booked the main hotel.
2. Poor bar area's for drinking at night unless you pay and if you don't it's long queue's and paper cups...No go for beer at night ..ok during the day though..
3.Dining room lacked a bit of courtesy from some of our French, Italian and Russian counterparts....my wife was pushed by some geezer waiting for Pizza....thank god she didn't tell me who he was....ignorance is bliss
4.Mosquito's.....Even inside...Repellent is a Must....even then I was still bitten alive lol...must like ma blood...
5. Overcrowded dining area at certain times....not enough plates...only one toaster....you have to be patient !!!

Positive Time...
1. Excellent service from young Raul who worked at the top pool, he was a Star...Very pleasant and polite with great sense of humour...we all loved him....Poured some great drinks..

2. All round the food was very good...yeah it caters for European cultures but the grilled meat and fish were fab...the crepes excellent, best fried egg ever...and the Soup which I had every day were just Fantastic. Great Air Con if u sit in correct area to the left of main inside dining area....

3. Pool areas great, flumes were a bonus for our girl age 7, she spent ages up and down, great exercise too for me and the good lady wife...

4. Kids Cub...Brilliant the girls do really well especially Sara...thanks for all your initial help trying to coax our daughter to join in...she did enjoy the few days she went...but struggled due to no other British kids...our fault we should all learn more languages..

5. Air Con in rooms was Brilliant...A blessing in the heat which was in the mid 40's

6. A special thanks to Mary...she managed to get our room changed into main hotel mainly as my wife struggled with the steps up to the village...and I admit I thought I was reasonably fit...and yeah I struggled too in the heat...

7. Cleaning staff were brilliant they work so hard ....reception staff always very pleasant...well done...

8. The hotel location near the beach was great...lovely wee cove for a dip just nearby...

9. Animation Team...Yeah they are mainly French and Italian .. but they were great..always working hard to keep everyone amused and involved...good to see how our European counterparts like to be entertained..

10. Last of all the hotel is great, try it but be prepared not to be near any towns or nightlife.....

The pictures of Lindos Royal Hotel are amazing, and so is the sight in real life too. There was a large variety of food, which was all very nice.

Although we had some difficulties too. The airconditioning was not working for a while, so it was very (very very) hot in our room. Also there are not many bars in the hotel. Only one bar is opened at a time. For this reason we often had to wait before we've got served.

Furthermore the personnel wasn't always that kind (some of them are, sorry for them). The ladies at the reception desk speak really poor English and French. I suppose Greek was the only language they spoke fluently.

A nice stay, but with this great accomodation it could have been better.

My wife and I were vacationing in this hotel in May 2014, our room was in a bungalow with stunning sea views. Wonderful grounds of the hotel, lovely food and a gorgeous beach made ​​our vacation paradise! From here you can walk to the town of Lindos and inexpensive to get to Rhodes and other lovely places!

Nice place with relaxing view on the sea and hills.
Not so bad. Good food. Formalistic staff on reception. Many mosguitos in the room. If you want to have good spleep at night you need to take fumigant.
Nature around is tremendous. Park and gardern is excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter. Full of mosquitos!

Dear Guests Boris & Family.

We are surprised to see your overall vote is so low even though you write the only problems to be during your stay were too many mosquito's, the Island like many other hot countries does have mosquito's but not so many that they should spoil your holiday so much, we do hope you will visit us again, best wishes from us all at the Lindos Royal Hotel
