We visited the Lindos Bay Hotel for four nights to attend our daughter's wedding in Saint Paul's Bay which is a short car/taxi ride away. We hired a car for our stay so the hotel's location outside Lindos wasn't a problem. That said, other hotels (like the Lindos Blu) aren't actually in Lindos either and not within walking distance either.
Based on the Trip Advisor rating (15th in Lindos on our departure) and other reviewers' comments we were expecting the worse, but on arrival we found the hotel (eventually, it has to be said, 'cos the signposting is poor) to be clean, bright and airy and the staff to be very welcoming.
Our room (211) was a good size and again, nice and clean and well appointed with a good view of the Bay and beyond - on a clear day you can see Turkey. We should come clean here and say that we were upgraded on arrival without request, but checking on the other rooms suggested they were of a similar size; they were certainly bigger than the rooms of supposedly better hotels where others of our party were staying.
The downside for us was the restaurant which was of the canteen-style, help yourself sort of eatery and so the emphasis was on quantity rather than out and out quality. In our four nights we only ate at the hotel twice so we have no real complaints other than, perhaps, to wish we had eaten at the hotel on our last night instead of going to eat at Agostinos restaurant - near St Paul's Bay - which was a bit of a strange experience altogether; not bad particularly - just odd.
So overall at the Lindos Bay Hotel we were pleasantly surprised; we didn't take time to sunbathe so can't comment on the pebbly beach, although clearly if you feel you need sand underfoot it might be better to try another hotel. There is a traditional restaurant if the canteen doesn't suit but we didn't try it.
If we were to return to Lindos we would definitely make our way back to the Lindos Bay (Sentido) Hotel.
