“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This hotel is beautiful, peaceful and was the perfect location for our honeymoon.

I would strongly recommend it. From the warm welcome, to the offer of opening the restaurant early just so we could eat on out day of departure we felt thoroughly looked after.

The staff are so helpful, and house keeping adjust your shower when you're out so you don't get soaked from the overhead when you go to wash your sandy feet with the hose attachment after a day on the beach. Nice touch.

The restaurant is easily the best we ate at during a week in Lindos. It may have also been the most expensive, but there are plenty of options in the town, but if you're after a teat you get what you have paid for.

The only downside - which hasn't affected my five star review because it's not the hotels fault - is the endemic donkey issue in the town.

I am by no means an animal rights 'fanatic', but I struggled to understand how anyone in the developed world could contribute to the misfortune of these poor animals in the name of tourism. It's shameful.

Unfortunately Melenos Lindos is right on the donkey trail leading up to the Acropolis. This means the noise, smells and congestion are often unavoidable as soon as you step out of this fantastic hotel.

Hopefully the town will one day face up to the barbarism of this time honoured 'tradition', and stop it. Visitors have the power to make this happen.

Room Tip: We stayed in Suite 1. It was great and at the bottom of the complex so easier to reach the beach fro...

I have stayed at Melenos before but on this trip to Lindos was not able. I did however decide to go there for a Birthday breakfast and as ever Michalis and his team provided a very kind welcome and a fabulous breakfast....it never fails to disappoint!

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at Melenos as a visitor to Lindos every year sometimes twice a year for the last 10 years.
This time being our honeymoon so we wanted to stay in a very special place.
Melenos does not dissapoint.
The thing I love about this hotel is the fact it doesnt feel like a hotel. It almost feels like it is your home for the time of your stay.
The attention to detail both inside the beautiful rooms and the lovely gardens and outside areas is second to none.
We loved our room and it was difficult to leave sometimes to go to the beach and certainly at the end of our stay.
The staff are friendly but not intrusive and you are left to enjoy the beauty of your surroundings in peace.
We enjoyed a celebratory meal on the beautiful restaurant terrace with my Sons. The service was perfect and the food was both lovely and perfectly presented.
We will certainly return to Melenos as a treat in between staying at other less luxurious places in Lindos village.
Definetly our favourite place to stay in Lindos :-))

We selected this hotel because we wanted to be right in the town of Lindos. The room was splendid, and the breakfast setting charming and the food perfectly good. There are many stray cats, which we enjoyed visiting with, at the outdoor seating area during breakfast. There is not a ton of privacy at breakfast as the breakfast area is all rather close together, so you can overhear what the other guests are saying.

We were happy to be up half way to the acropolis of Lindos since there were strikes when we were on the Island and it was closed for a few days; we were able to be among the very first guests to be admitted on the first day it was open, so I can't really say how crowded it is. It can be hot (we were there in September) so starting early is a good idea. We walked as we didn't need to hike the whole way up from our hotel.

Fascinating to see a lone man writing on a manual typewriter just outside a small building out on a little promontory and a school house between the hotel and the top of the acropolis.

We never had a meal other than breakfast at the hotel, though I did get a salad, which was absolutely delicious. There was also a fabulous library where I discovered a new writer whose book caught my eye on a shelf there.

As others have said, the management sends someone to get your luggage in the town square of Lindos once your taxi collects you from airport (how we arrived) because it is a long and windy walk and with luggage, forget it.

Thank you for the comments especially regarding the safe. I feel that we have to explained to you the reason why we provide safes with keys and not codes.This is why we feel that when our guests are on holidays they do not need to memorize codes and unecessary information.As per the size of the safe this is as big as can hold passports and cash although LIndos is a perfectly safe place to be..it is Zero crime in Lindos .We appreciate that you mention that to us and we will take it under consideration.

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful hotel and the experience was both special and without fault from start to finish. Great attention to detail paid in all aspects - flowers, fruit and chocolates in the room. Room was gorgeous, traditionally Greek but also luxurious. Excellent location with ocean views, a short walk to the acropolis and town and easy beach access.

We stayed 4 nights at Melenos hotel in one of the most beautiful rooms we have ever been. The hotel with very few rooms is definitively a very special one. we had a senior suite. It is true that it is not cheap but value for money was really worth it. Hotel staff are very friendly. They took care of our luggage from parking area, which is very important, as you cannot get hotel with your car. They were very flexible and they meet you whenever is more suitable for you. Impressive hotel and building. Breakfast is just delicious in a very nice terrace. The beautiful main Lindos beach is just at 3 minutes walk !. You have also in the room your own terrace with sea views to relax with a nice wine. The hotel is just Impressive. Nothing can be wrong there. No way !. it is just beautiful and relaxing.

Room Tip: Senior suite room number 10
