“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stayed here in 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The balcony and view out to sea was unbelievable, this and how close the apartments are to the village make the hotel!! Rooms very basic, but do the job! Great value for money!!

I'm actually staying here as I write this (room 11) and I have to say, that after reading the reviews, I was a bit worried about coming here. Turns out I needn't have been!

The place is a bit tired, small and the outside space a bit scruffy, but the apartment is clean enough. The furniture is basic, but certainly not falling apart as someone said earlier!
The maid arrives about 9:30- 10am, hardly the crack of dawn, she has to do someone first, so maybe those who moaned about her before were just first on her list?
She brushes and mops the floor, cleans the bathroom and kitchen, changes beds and towels but thats about all. Not sure about anyone else, but I was taught to clean up after myself, so I do. I don't leave my mess for some poor old woman, who has god knows how many apartments to do, six days a week! No sign of cockroaches or any other nasty visitors.

My room is right at the end, so I have no balcony or terrace, but there is a shared space a few yards away. The view from my window is stunning though. The music from the restaurant above is not too bad, its only a few yards away from my room, but I like Greek music when I'm in Greece, and it isn't too loud or go on too late.

The location is excellent, a minute to the square, a couple more to the beach and if its too hot to walk, there are two shops and a restaurant at the top of the steps right outside!

Most of the people staying here seem to know each other and come back year after year, which makes for a nice friendly atmosphere about the place.I would probably come back again if I was travelling alone again, but if I came with my partner I would probably stay at my usual haunt at the top of the hill.

Good value for money and an excellent, last minute choice!

Room Tip: Bring something to de-scale the kettle, or do what I did, buy a couple of lemons in the village and...

We travelled to Afroditi Studios with Olympic Holidays, For what we paid was excellent value for money.
I had requested aroom with a balcony and unfortunately were allocated the only one studio without. But managed to change rooms half way through the week.
The fridge broke down during our stay, but was changed the same day.
Fantastic location with amazing views over the bay of the Sunrise. Just a couple of minutes from the town square and a short walk up to the bus station.
On a negative point our outward flight was delayed by 4 hours due to Olympic being an aircraft short for the routes, and then on the return our flight was brought forward by 4hours, thus spoiling our last evening.

Room Tip: Room 10 has no balcony

Room Tip: The rooms for 2 have an excellent outlook over the main beach.

We stayed here between 5th September and 19th. Yes as in previous reviews the cleaning leaves a lot to be desired. Never saw the cleaner doing anything other than emptying the bins and watering the plants, but she was a lovely lady. Don't want to be disrespectful, but think she's maybe too old for the job. (Think she 'cleans' other apartments in Lindos as well). On the second day our shower head came off the pipe. Hubby superglued it and it stayed put for the rest of our stay. Only one toilet roll is supplied. After that, buy your own. There is no shower mat supplied either. When the kettle boiled, plastic bits from the inside were floating in the water. After that we just boiled water in a pan. This was brought to the attention of our rep, Sam on the day we left, so maybe the new occupants have a new kettle. We had clean sheets and towels three times during our stay. The wadrobe was quite large with plenty of coat hangers, although the furniture is ancient. The fridge wasn't very clean, but gave it a wipe out and must say, when turned on full really worked well and the small freezer was ample for our ice cubes and water to freeze. So enough about the cleaning and the antiquated furniture.

We had room 6 which was a two bedroomed apartment. Two beds in each room, so we used the smaller room for our cases and other bits and pieces. The views from our window were absolutely stunning and I couldn't stop looking at them. Overlooking the bay and the main beach. There was a washing line which was right by our apartment and we were the only ones to use it as other people just used the railings. There were lots of goats around eating the foliage and the donkeys in the field below annoyed us the first couple of nights with their braying but then got used to it. Fed them everyday going down to the beach. Just turn left out of Afrodite and the next turning on the left leads down to the beach which takes about seven minutes. Bit of a steep walk back up but you get used to it. The villlage square is on the doorstep, so the studios are in a fantastic location. The Oasis Taverna is above the apartments and Rocco and Yanni are lovely people. There is a night club just below called Paradise but not open anymore by the looks of it.

All in all we had a brilliant holiday and if these studios had a little attention given to them they could be one of the best. Would we stay here again? Yes is the answer if we could have the views.

FIRST THE GOOD STUFF:

I’ve lived, worked and visited in Lindos off and on for the last 12 years and can tell you that these apartments are in a fantastic location, less than 1 minute from the main square which takes you into the village & also has taxis and a bus. 30 seconds away from the pathway to the Main Beach. Great views of the village, acropolis and beaches if you're lucky enough to get a room at the bottom. The size of the rooms are fine for 2 people. There is a 2 ring cooker, a decent enough fridge and enough wardrobe and cupboard space for 2. There seemed to be enough cutlery, plates, cups and glasses for 2 although I wouldn’t touch any of it without disinfecting it (which I’ll go into next.)
Can’t recommend Dionysos restaurant enough, it’s great, and also PALS bar which is owned by the loveliest couple who create a great atmosphere every night. (Both in the middle of the village).

NOW THE BAD STUFF:

Buy your own cleaning fluids, sponges and cloths, and then borrow the cleaners broom and mop as there's absolutely no point letting her do it. I don't mind having to wipe down a few surfaces on my first day of a holiday, but seriously, these apartments need a deep clean, they are suffering from many years of neglect by the incompetent cleaner and whoever takes care of maintenance. I've been to these apartments twice, and to Sun Studios twice (where the same cleaner works), and it's the same there too.

I must REALLY love Lindos, Rhodes to put up with this seriously substandard level of maintenance and cleaning. I keep booking with Olympic twice every year only because they run the majority of the village accommodation within Lindos and I don't want to stay outside of the actual village. The location of Afroditi is one of the best in Lindos. Accommodation in Lindos is always described as 'basic' by Olympic, and I can do basic, I only need a toilet, shower and bed.

BASIC however, doesn't begin to describe the level of cleanliness and maintenance in Afroditi apartments. Mouldy rotten wood on all of the wooden bed legs, bottoms of cupboards and doors. A huge chunk rotted away at the bottom of the dressing table from where the wood has sat in the cleaner's filthy mop water which she leaves swilling around on the floor every day. I actually had to balance the dressing table against the wall as it couldn't stay upright with a chunk of leg missing. The bathroom door was damp, warped and rotting from the bottom upwards and no longer fits the doorframe. As is common with Lindos showers, the drain is not dipped which means the shower water doesn’t drain away and just sits on the floor.

Filth being 'moved around' with a dirty mop every day by the so called cleaner - the same one who 'cleans' many of the different Olympic run apartments in Lindos to the same absolutely filthy standard.

Her version of cleaning the sink and shower is the spray some cleaning fluid on it for 2 minutes and then spray it away with the shower head. That’s it, no sponge, no wiping, no cleaning.

I LOVE Lindos, and have nothing against the cleaning lady personally, we’ve spent several weeks with her as our cleaner but let's get real, she just does not clean. She changes sheets and replaces towels, but she does NOT clean. She really must be replaced and some basic maintenance needs to be done on the Afroditi apartments. I'd love to bring friends along on holiday to show them Lindos, but I CANNOT bring friends into these filth buckets, they'd be disgusted. All it would take is a different cleaner who actually cleans, and a small amount of basic maintenance and then I would be able to say that Olympic have the best apartments in Lindos.

The location of these apartments are perfect, but EVERYONE who I speak to each time I go there complains about the cleaner being useless. Every year I go, and every year she is there, moving the dirt around again in a number of Olympic apartments. Olympic PLEASE replace her.

2 Stars represents the facilities of the accommodation – It should not represent the cleanliness. Everyone should be able to expect cleanliness however basic the apartments are.

Room Tip: Lower floors have fantastic views
