Just back from this hotel and have a mixed opinion of it.It is lovely and clean inside and out however some concerns should be noted namely if booked with Thomas Cook your requested Sea view room will only be available on arrival at checkin paying a 70-150 euro supplement.No point in thinking when handing over your hard earned at your local branch when booking that you have a sea view room ...NO CHANCE. An expensive greeting by the surly and quite frankly ignorant female member of staff who thinks customer service are two swear words and wont use them. My wife is a professional customer service trainer and will be using our checkin experience as an example so possibly some good will come out of it all. The staff otherwise were friendly and very competent especially the dining room and domestic staff. The rooms are very nice and kept to a high standard and the food is excellent. Drink prices are extortionate but luckily the Lemon Tree to the left outside the hotel about 300 yards away helped ease the wallet. Cut your drink prices and maybe you will stop the nightly exodus to Lindos village and other establishments. Spirit and mixer 6 euro, local beer 200 ml 2.90 or 400 ml 3.50.Travel by taxi to lindos 12 euros out and 8 back . Would I return? Probably not but it is a nice hotel and for a quiet time away relaxing and enjoying sunbathing hard to beat.

Room Tip: Pay sea view supplement on arrival

Just returned from a two week break on this lovely island and can highly recommend a visit at this time of year - an abundance of spring flowers, warm sunshine (not too hot) and quiet roads before the summer crowds arrive. Driving is easy and the best way to see the island, stopping off when you want and exploring mountain roads and villages that you would otherwise miss, as well as the main historical sites of which there are many. Many of the small village tavernas serve delicious food made with fresh local ingredients. Throughout the island, people are friendly,unfailingly helpful and generous.

We stayed at the Mareblue and experienced many of the good qualities described by other reviewers. The rooms were fairly spacious and very well tended by the cleaning staff. Robes and slippers came as standard. Bathroom had both bath and shower and adequate space for both of us to set up his and her toiletry corners! Towels were quite new and not at all scratchy! We had a fourth floor seaview room with a pretty view and the balcony caught the sun from the time it rose until around 11.30am, so the afternoons and evenings were shaded and cooler. Air con was effective when it was turned on - unfortunately the hotel took a couple of days to switch it on centrally as they thought the temperature didn't merit cooling. As many of the guests had come from chilly Britain, however, the initial shock of warm nights without air conditioning caused somewhat of a general protest and it was switched on for use in the rooms. By the end of the first week, we had become acclimatised and only used it sparingly!

The staff were helpful and pleasant at all times. The public areas of the hotel were cool, unobtrusive and well designed. The sunbeds round the pools weren't on top of each other - there was room to have a little privacy if you wanted and the mattresses were clean and fresh. Towels were free from the spa area and you returned them for fresh ones when you wished. There are also plenty of beds and umbrellas by the sea, so no rush to get the towels down in the morning!

Now for some of the niggles! Breakfast was good, with plenty of fresh fruit and yoghourts, delicious breads and rolls, croissants and other pastries. Why leave the skin on quartered oranges and grapefruits and sliced kiwis? Try eating them without dropping juice everywhere! The last couple of days we made a point of asking for a made on the spot omelette, as the hot food in the trays tended to be warm at best and at worst cold. Fruit juice was from a machine, when it could have been freshly made. Dinner was very much a hit or miss - started serving at 7, but if you strolled in after 8 you were sometimes lucky to find much food left! Salads were nice, deserts were also good, but the mains left quite a lot to be desired.

We booked with Thomas Cook My Style and one of the promised 'extras' was a basket of fruit and a bottle of water and wine in the room. The wine was disappointingly the size of an airline single glass bottle and the fruit bowl consisted of two apples and an orange - not that inspiring.

There were no toiletries provided in the room, only liquid soap containers above the washhandbasin and shower. Small touches like these make a difference. Quite a few of the guests were 'mature' and the considerable walk up thesteep hill to the bus stop wasn't an option for them. Taxis were fairly expensive if you wanted to get even into Lindos - 12 Euros there and 8 back - bus is 1 euro 60 and takes a few minutes only. I believe that there was a courtesy bus at some point last year and the hotel should seriously consider this as a priority- even if it was only a couple of times a day. We aren't that bothered about organised entertainment but some of the guests were feeling that there wasn't much to do in the evenings. We had a Greek night and someone playing old favouites on a trumpet or trombone and some Dominican dancers. By the way, this may change as the season goes on, but the last bus back from Lindos is at 7.15! So, if you fancy a night out, taxi or own transport required. We hired from Rodos car rental through their office in Lindos and found the car more than adequate and very reasonably priced - much cheaper than the price quoted by the TC rep.

All in all, the hotel was fine and the staff were certainly lovely. We had a great holiday and would certainly return to Rhodes, but we might also consider other hotels.

Me an my boyfriend went in August, the hotel was beautiful, the people were friendly and the view was amazing. The only down side was the location. The hotel is situated in the middle of no where and unfortunately on our stay the Taxi's were on strike. We went to Lindos town only once because it was such an effort to walk the 45 mins up the hill and through other hotels to get to the bus stop, especially in the 40+ degree heat. But Lindos town itself was beautiful, and St Paul's bay is a must. The food was great and the hotel was lovely and modern. The rooms were cleaned daily and cleaned well. We only saw one night of entertainment which included live music and Greek dancing which was lovely. There were water sports available and a boat trip that leaves from the private beach every morning which I highly recommend! The on site restaurants were great value and a must try! Overall the hotel is ideal for those looking for a quiet and relaxing get away, do not come here if you are looking for a bit of night life! We are not the kind of people to return to a holiday destination - the world is too big! But I have a feeling I would like to see these people and places again :)

We read the reviews on tripadvisor before choosing this hotel--and every good thing that has been said here turned out to be true. We stayed a week in the Mareblue Lindos Bay, and it was a fantastic experience. The staff were attentive and friendly; the rooms were spacious, clean and new; food at the buffet tables was good (plenty of variety). There were no problems with getting sunbeds as there were plenty; and if you went down to the beach, you could have food and drinks brought to you at your sunbed. The staff come round now and then and hand out frozen towels for you to cool down. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at Lindos Bay hotel first week in October. Hotel is excellent, location is stunning, and the weather was very hot. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean, the staff work very hard and are friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, we would definitely recommend this hotel. A sea view room is a must, the view over the bay is beautiful. The food was very good, lots of choice and a visit to the A la Carte restaurant is a must, excellent service and excellent food! The location is outside Lindos, but only 5 minutes away by bus or taxi. Cannot think of anything negative to say and we would love to go back sometime. In our opinion this hotel really does not deserve the negative comments written on this site. If I had read these before booking, probably would not have booked this - so glad I didn't read them!

This hotel is excellent,the staff are extremely helpful and friendly.From reception to waiting staff to maid service.
The reception area is very clean and bright.The rooms are all to a very high standard.
The restaurant is also of a very standard.the food is well cooked and well presented.
We found dining was pleasant experience ,no rush and not crowded at all.
The swimming pool had the usual sunbed bookers up at the crack of dawn,but if you go to the beach there are plenty of hotel sunbeds (free) There is a button on the sunshade to call a waiter to bring food or drink to you.We used it,sunbed and cold drink Brilliant,
The Thomas Cook Reps were all exceptional.Many thanks to Emma and Caroline and all the rest we met.
We would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday.

We stayed for two weeks at this very relaxing and friendly hotel in september , the staff in all the restaurants and bars were the tops, very friendly and helpfull, nothing was too much trouble for them to do.The room we had was a lovely sea view room where we could sit on the balcony and have early morning tea and see a beautifull sunrise( tea making facilities were provided in the room) . The room was kept spotlessly clean by a very cheerfull number of ladies during our stay. The restaurant was full of good food for breakfast and diner with a good choice to choose from. The beach in front of the hotel was a lovely one and it was cleaned every morning it had a good number of sun shades and loungers. All in all my wife and i had a really good holiday and hopefully will go back.
