Just returned from our second visit here.
The first time we stayed in the newer rooms block 700 which were lovely, but this time despite a request made by email we were allocated one of the older studios which were not nearly as good. Still adequate but disappointing when you know the difference. The older rooms are very basic and sparse, not even a picure on the walls and there was a huge dent in the bathroom door. We were a family of 4 but my son had to sleep on a camp bed and my daughter on a made up sofa bed. It is pretty obvious that these rooms are really for 3 people as 3 chairs on balcony, 3 bath towels in bathroom, as stated on Lindos View website which specifically say these types of studio are for 3. We did have a nice view from our room towards the sea and Lindos but some rooms are on ground floor and have no outlook at all.
Also when we stayed in the newer rooms there were nice touches such as flowers scattered on the beds and towels made into shapes by the maid. I noticed her cutting flowers to take back to the rooms this time,
Despite our initial disappoinment we still had a great holiday. This is a well kept property, family owned and you can see everyone works hard, the maids arriving before 7am. It is a tight run ship and everyone knows their part.
Make sure you take plenty of spending money as drinks especially are expensive almost 5 euros for 2 soft drinks and 50 euros a week for air con which is absolutely necessary in peak season.

Room Tip: Ask for block 700 which was built in 2008. Date is imprinted in the pebbles on the ground leading he...

Dear guests,

Thank you for your comments. We are happy to hear that your overall impression about the hotel is good and you were satisfied with your holidays in Lindos View.

Regarding your disappointment about the room, it is a shame that there was no possibility to allocate you to newly renovated room as these rooms have already been allocated by the other guests requesting the new room earlier than you. We hope to proceed with renovation of the rooms and expect to have more of those rooms soon.

However, it is worth mentioning that the rooms that are not newly renovated also have advantages such as nice view, are spacious and have the same facilities as the new rooms.

We highly appreciate sharing your experiences with us and will try to do our best to make the rooms more alive and pleasant to stay regardless of their oldness.

We hope to see you again.

Kind regards,
Yannis Profilienos
Manager

The first thing to say about this Hotel is that is has an amazing location, views and unbeatable price for what you get. From what we saw the entire hotel has been refurbished, The rooms were excellent, very clean with great bathroom facilities. When we arrived at the hotel at 4am the receptionist and staff were all very welcoming, and spoke great English. The pools were kept clean and very nice. The only downside was the expensive restaurant, however there are nearby cheaper alternatives. Overall this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Studios are spacious for around the same price

Yet another memorable stay at Lindos View.
Hotel is placed just in the edge of Lindos Village with spectacular views of the Acropolis perched looking over the Med Sea.
Rooms are spotless and decorated to a high standard. We had a huge shower as well as a jaquzzi bath with uninterrupted views of the Acropolis. There are two good size pools which are well maintained with plenty of sunbeds.
Staff are very professional and caring wiling to assist with each request including expanding my Greek. Food is very very good and reasonably priced, There is a choice of either eating on the terrace or the upper restaraunt with stunning views and superb food. Following our first visit we were given a 10% discount followed by 15% the next 20% the next and so on. There is also the option to pay up front for Breakfast or Breakfast and Dinner.
Lindos View offers everything we want for the perfect holiday we have booked to return already. Lindos View is Simply the Best.

My boyfriend and I (both 22) stayed at Lindos View between June 22nd - July 6th. When we first arrived in the room we were a bit disappointed. We weren't allocated a refurbished room, which was fine because we didn't request one. However, although it was clean, the furnishings were all chipped and stained and the bathroom had seen much better days. It wouldn't have taken a lot to paint over the furniture and re-grout the tiles just to give a better impression. I didn't expect a modern room but I did expect everything to be in a better condition. Once we got past that the location of the room (number 33) was perfect. We were on the ground floor so had a lovely terrace which over looked the acropolis and the sea, as there were no apartment buildings infront of us. The aircon, which was 100€ for 2 weeks, was much needed.

The pool areas were lovely. We always used the more 'adult' pool at the front of the hotel infront of reception and you could barely hear a pin drop it was so relaxing. I particularly enjoyed the little step at one end of the pool where you could sit and read a book in the water. They play music out during the day which gives a bit of atmosphere and you could easily come down at 11am and still locate a sun bed.

The food at the hotel, especially at the pool bar, was really good. It was fair prices and big portions, which equals good value for money!! We found the same to be true of the restaurant upstairs, which has excellent views of the village. I would especially recommend the fried chicken wrap and the burgers!! They also do excellent cocktails, which are a bit pricy at 6€ each, but no more expensive than anywhere else in Lindos - it just meant we didn't buy as many (perhaps they could do some deals on certain nights?!)

The staff at the hotel seemed friendly enough. In particular Susie the evening bar maid was really nice and friendly so I would like to give a special mention to her. There is a lady that serves food during the day that can come across unfriendly (and was really rude to me at breakfast once) but I think that is just her way.

The location of the hotel is great. It has amazing views, 2min walk to the bus stop and super market. Around a tough 15min walk to either beach (there's a lot of hills). Also, if you walk straight over the car park oposite the hotel there are some metal steps to your left-hand-side. This is the quickest and easiest route into the village, a little less hilly and a lot more shaded than the others.

Overall I would recommend this hotel and I would stay here again. Although, it would be nice if they could give the rooms that bit more care and attention for that extra icing on the cake.

We've just returned from our 13th visit to the Lindos View in as many years - going again later this year too - and I'm delighted to say that it is still the best place I've ever visited on holiday.

From the moment we arrived and met Alex, the wonderful receptionist, we were treated like friends. Our room was fabulous, located in one of the blocks at the rear of the site, nice and quiet, spotlessly clean (the maid visited on six of the seven days) and was well maintained. We didn't use the cooking facilities in the room aside from the fridge, but you shouldn't expect a full oven and hob, microwave, an array of saucepans etc. - this is Greece, and Greek accommodation always has somewhat minimal cooking equipment as per the tour operator's requirements. We were on holiday and when we're away from home, we eat out - holidays are for relaxing, not housework!

The rooms at the Lindos View are arranged in eight blocks, and they come in different styles, from very modern with jacuzzis and mood lighting, to older rooms with a more spartan feel, so if you go as part of a large group don't be surprised if your rooms are all different! Our room wasn't one of the newest ones but we loved it - it was extremely comfortable, quiet, had an amazing view across the site towards the pool and the Acropolis, and for the time we were there it felt like home.

The staff at the Lindos View are all fantastic - friendly, polite, professional - and when we left we saw lots of hugs and kisses, handshakes, and promises to return being made. During the day cleaners and maintenance staff are often seen around the place, quietly keeping the Lindos View ticking along, and their efforts all really make a difference; it's a beautiful location, with nice gardens, gorgeous flowers, and they really look after it well.

The Lindos View has two swimming pools and a paddling pool, a games room in the basement (video games, pool tables etc.) and a small play area for kids. There is a restaurant upstairs, plus food is available at the bar and outside during the day. There are regular Greek nights, barbecues, a karaoke evening, and once a week a singer / entertainer appears. Around the pool on several days a masseuse and also a beautician were available.

Lindos village is an easy walk away, but be prepared for a climb! The village is lower than the Lindos View, so whichever way you choose to go you'll be heading downhill to get there, but uphill to come back. You can choose four routes: one of two hills, some steps, or take a taxi (we've never done this but think I heard some people say they were charged 7 Euro). The village itself is a maze of narrow streets, free from motor vehicles, but you soon find your way around. There are countless bars and restaurants to choose from, and everyone finds their favourites.

We had a fantastic time at the Lindos View and can't wait to return. Thankfully we won't have too long to wait this time. I can't praise this place highly enough.

Room Tip: They're all wonderful, but if you have any specific requirements email the Lindos View a few wee...

We went to Lindos for a family wedding, we chose this hotel because of the fantastic reviews on this site, we were definitely not disappointed. The place was spotless, the staff were great, the food was to a very high standard with lots of choice. The rooms were all quite different, but all lovely, with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. We actually went half board and we never had a bad meal. I am vegetarian and had plenty to choose from the menu available. We also spent less in total than our family who were self catering, because the portion sizes we received were enough for the day. There was entertainment on several times during the week which we enjoyed. There are supermarkets very close, and Lindos town is very quaint and quirky and only about 10 mins walk downhill, with a 50 cent bus back up the hill. Had a massage and had my nails done for the wedding both were lovely and the girls were very nice and friendly, and it was good value for money. The pools are both beautiful and exceptionally clean. Also there was no problem getting a Sun bed. I had been to Greece before and was not keen, but I really really did have my mind changed after this trip. I would definitely go to Lindos View again. Thanks to them for a fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: From what I could see from our group, ie 6 rooms, all were lovely, quiet and had good views. The low...
