Lindos White Hotel and Suites
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Vlycha
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Just got back from a two holiday at this hotel, my husband booked it as an anniversary brake for us, what a mistake, we arrived just after 22.00 hrs on a Saturday, we were taken to the hotel by the transfer coach driver, no rep on the coach, we arrived at reception booked in and fitted with the white wrist bands, we rquested some food and refreshments only to be told the resturant was closed, at this point we were directed to our room and left to our own devices to find it and carry our own cases, they put us in the new block oppersite the pool bar, we had requested a high floor in a low noise area and paid extra for a sea view, what a let down, we had to wait until 13.00 hrs the next day to move, the hotel offered no assistance and we had to move our selves from room to room.

After a couple of days we began to notice the room wasn't being cleaned to a satisfactory degree, you could see wear the mop had been pushed round the room and back out the front door, the shower was not cleaned for several days and there were dirty stains on the floor under the sink for a week and still there we we left.

I agree with other people the main dinning room appears to ressemble a canteen and dated rather a 4* resturant, the food adequate mostly served warm and very repedative.

The drinks served at both pool bars are of very low quality, and don't go to the lower pool bar if you expect to be served with smile, the barman there is the original mister grummpy, pool side snacks, are of cheese and ham sandwiches wrapped in klingfilm and kept in an old chiller or an hot dog if available, if you want to be served with a smile go to the top pool bar and see Filip or Oliver, nice guy's working in adverse conditions, but aways happy.

The sun beds on the beach look like they have seen more winters than Father Christmas and are sun bleached and tatty, and for this they want to charge 4 euros a day each, vote on this one with your feet, it's the same price all down the beach.

Also be awear that this hotel is not in Lindos and is well back from the beach and although you can pay extra for a sea view room, the view is partly obscewered by another hotel on the right hand side, Lindos is a descent hike or taxi ride away, confirm the price with the driver before setting off, should be 12 euros to Lindos and 8 euros back fixed price, be prepared to be ripped of if you haven't agreed the price first.

This hotel is not a 4* hotel by any standard, it appears to be the lower end of a 3*, maybe, I think who ever rated this hotel must have been on the international brands the night before, if they could find any !!!

The management at this hotel are cutting costs to the point, that it was not worth the money that Thomsons are charging, and the holiday was overpriced and we felt that we had been fleeced.

I can't beleave the Thomsons representative Becky doe's not know of these problems, after all she as been there all season, we started to pick up bad feed back after only two days from other holiday guests.

Thomsons need to reavaluate there thinking as regards this hotel, or risk damage to their reputation, as for this hotel it is a case of "Buyer Beware" we would not return to this hotel again, it is not value for money.

We would question the use of this operator in future having had this experience.

We usually go to Riu hotels in Cape Verde, so just for a change we tried Lindos .
This hotel has just been refurbished to a high standard we booked a suite & was highly pleased with it , however the site is very isolated but the views are gorgeous . so be prepared to travel 3 miles to Lindos for a day trip.also it is expensive 8 euros if you need a taxi , 12 if hotel orders it ,
But we genuinely enjoyed our break , do try it !!!!

Room Tip: Don't pick the garden view rooms try for the upper blockor the suites

Accomodation was clean and tidy (in the old block). We had a sea view which was nice. Weather was great. Food was repetative and there could have been more Greek food on offer. Most staff were friendly and helpful but the bottom pool bar in the evening had a grumpy doom and gloom serving. Music turned down, no food served and no atmosphere, so upper bar better for evening drinks. Ridiculous that they have a lovely seating reception area yet they do not serve at the bar there and if they do you have to pay even though you are all inclusive. More people would sit and pay after 11pm if they served free drinks there early evening free. Entertainment, no good. Greek night was the best but only watchable once. Beach pebbly but sandy on the south point. Ridiculous having to pay for sun beds down the beach at the hotel when all inclusive. Overall ok but defo not 4*. If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday in the middle of nowhere its great. Defo go back to Lindos but next time nearer to the town or Rhodes Town.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at this hotel. I agree with the previous comments regarding the drinks, lack of snacks, and the evening barman at the lower pool. We had room no 802 and it was beautiful, very spacious and clean. We found the food was good, yes sometimes not as hot as I would like, the salads were lovely, and fresh. Kay and the staff in the dining room were lovely. Oliver and Filip who work in the upper pool bar are lovely, helpful young men. The man who worked the in the evening at the lower pool bar was very unfriendly and the drinks were disgusting, we just did not go to this pool. The new part of the hotel is lovely, I saw one room in the lower part and would have been so disappointed if we had been allocated one of them. I think they are more like a 3 star hotel. The reception bar is a joke, you have to pay for drinks because they are branded ones, I am sorry but if it is an all inclusive hotel you should be able to get a drink anywhere. I cannot say we had any problems with the reception staff, I always found them friendly and helpful. We had a lovely relaxing holiday, I do not think this hotel is a 4 star, I feel it is expensive for what you get, I really think they need to improve the all inclusive side of it. Oh last comment there are red fire boxes outside the rooms on the lower part of the hotel, fine you say, no, one of them contains an axe, crowbar, and other implements that could be used in the event of a fire, but these boxes are NOT LOCKED, sorry but it is an accident waiting to happen, I was shown this by a couple who had one of these boxes right next to there room door, I personally would not have liked this.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new part of the hotel, they are lovely,

Just come back from a lovely warm week in Rhodes. The country is very pretty with lots of flowers and greenery. Lindos is a must see, charming alleyways of shops and tavernas. We also took at trip to the old town of Rhodes and a tour of the scenic south. Word of warning, book your trips with local operators as they are almost half the price of he tour operators.

As for the hotel, it is the first time we went AI and I'm not sure we would do it again, as the drinks were not of a good quality apart from the beer. Also I would expect snacks to be on offer by the pool, but these were not on offer. The food in the restaurant was of good quality and there was quite a good choice for vegetarians, especially the salads.

Most of the staff were friendly ,but as others have noted there was a distinct lack of management.

The room we were allocated was in the older block. Although the room was refurbished to a good standard the bathroom was well below what would be expected of a 4 star. It was tired, worn and mouldy in some places.

Would I recommend Rhodes. YES do go it is a pretty island with lots to see. Would I recommend the hotel. NO. It was overpriced and not up to the 4 star standard it pretends to be.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new block

After spending a week in lindos white my overall review is quite poor :( the selection of food there is terrible. There should be a selection of food but in my opinion there wasnt.
Also the staff at this hotel are quite rude! On the day we arrived there was no welcome drink and was greeted by the receptionist who didnt even look at us when handing over the room key and just told us which room we was in without given directions. There were two guys that worked on the botgutom pool bar, the morning guy was so nice and polite but the afternoon guy was so rude and ignorant (doom and gloom) and as soon as he came on shift he,d stop serving pool snacks when he should of been serving until 11pm. The only thing that made our holiday was the lovely and amazing group of people we met which made us laugh off the downfalls of this hotel. Not a hotel i would reccomend but lindos town is beautiful :)

have just returned, from this hotel, we had a lovely room,we wanted a relaxing break in the sun and thats what we got..The lack of management in this hotel is very evedient,I asked a member of staff who i needed to speak to and he said you will be lucky. I have never visited a hotel where there is no one in charge.There is no customer service at all.The hotel coul be so good with a few tweeks, the standard of the drinks apalling i love a vodka and tonic before dinner the tonic was nasty cheap awful, served in a plastic cup, They have a bar inside and its a lovely area to sit the bar is not in the all inc its not staffed,they should have this available serving quality drinks,with a little dish of peanuts etc few candles what a difference it would make.Not sure what the fuss ia about re cocktails the mojito s were the only drinkable cocktail i asked for a vodka and orange juice and was given vodka with a splash of awful orange squash come on its suppose to be 4 star,W e had to go to the hotel for a drink in the evening across the rd and had to spend 12 euros for the pleasure of 2 lovely vodka and tonics. you may think its alll doom and gloom its not the food makes up for it, We had some smashing meals lovely lamb, tasty chicken with lovely fresh salad feta etc etc.the cleaning staff well not the best it has to be said our shower on arrival was full of hair so i had to clean it myself.the toiletres are not replaced so take your own shampoo etc another let down for this standard, i think they will have to drop a star and prices to reflect this hotels, problems, I have given it 4 stars on the overall review becuse the sun shined, the sea was warm the food brill, the people we met in the hotel great, i hope the management can adress the problems and find some money to take this hotel to the level of 4 star.it feels like they have just run out of money to give the standard needed for the rating. would i go again ,,,,, no i like a glass of wine in a glass drinkable a lovely vodka tonic with slice lemon in a glass....few nibbles not to much to ask i think thomson are asking top money so they have to meet the 4 star price and standard

Room Tip: ask for room at the top htel block room 803 very nice view
