This was our first trip to Rhodes and after we had read many of the reviews on trip advisor we chose our hotel (the Lindos Mare). We had booked a junior suite and on arrival could not have been more pleased, the room was spacious, well decorated, very clean and commanded magnificent views over Vlicha bay.
The staff at the Mare are wonderful, cannot do enough for you and always greet you with a smile. The food quality was very good and always plenty of variety. Lunch at the two pool bars was also very good quality and portions were quite large so be prepared to put on a few extra pounds (I guess most people are prepared for that on holiday anyway).
The pool areas are nice and you can usually get a sunbed. The beach is worth a visit and the sunbeds/parasols here are free, the sea is crystal clear and warm and quite safe for swimming and snorkelling.
Vlicha bay is not a very busy place, just a couple of tavernas/bars and one or two supermarkets. There is a water sports centre on the beach with Jet Ski’s, banana boat, doughnuts etc. but we didn’t see many people taking part.
As has previously been said a trip into Lindos is not really a walk away, mainly because of the lack of a footpath, we did walked it once and it took about 35 minutes but it certainly wouldn’t be safe to do at night because of the traffic. Getting around is easy (even without a car) as public transport runs to all the main places. We went into Rhodes town on the bus and it was very easy.
This hotel is easily a 4 star; we would not hesitate to recommend it to friends or family and would definitely return again.
Hope this short review helps.
