This hotel recently seems to have been getting criticism for the rooms .The newer rooms are very good but the other rooms are not like some people are making out even the older rooms are better than others in the same price bracket like lindos gardens,lindos athena and and lambis apartments comparing it with lindos blu and lindos mare is stupid as these cost over £1000 over 2 weeks.
We stayed in newer room and it is probaly of a 4 star standard we had a 1 bedroom apartment with a glass partition dividing 1 half with a double bed and bath and balcony from the other half with 2 single beds and kitchenette and bathroom.
The kitchen consisted of a long marble top sink with toaster and kettle and a fridge with a freezer compartment.
There was also a plug in 2 ring hob and a few pans if you needed to cook and 4 mugs 4 glasses corkscrew ect.
Beds were really comfortable and maid service very good coming in every day except sunday leaving loads of towels.
The hotel complex is very with 2 good sized pools only gripe was most were secured by 9.00am with the british habit of reserving them with towels there were some available but most prime spots were secured We only used pool on the first day as we used the beaches for most of the holiday Pool is very clean though and is open from 8.00am to 8.00pm.
There is a games room on the basment with a couple of driving games a pinball game 4 pool tables a table tennis table, air hockey table and 4 computers with internet access and pc games which cost about 1 euro for 20 minutes so plenty to keep kids amused
We used the resteraunt once and was very good with main courses about 10 euros good to have the option if you dont want to stroll into lindos
Bar food was good and drink and beer prices probaly same as in lindos 3.50 for a large beer but a full pint glass when most bars in lindos serve 0.5 litre glasses
I found bar service slow at times especialy when the pool girl finished around 5.00pm but improved after 11 .00pm when resteraunt closed and the waiter from resteraunt who is very good helped in bar.
There is wi fi available in lobby but this is very slow when loads log on okay early and late though.
Location is very good being in krana area but right on top of lindos if you go right towards st pauls bay about 100 yards down there is a gap in the wall and a path takes you down to the top of the village takes about 6 minutes and the first bars Dreams bar and Lindian house bar you can the walk through the village to the square where a taxi back up cost 4 euros.Walk to st pauls bay takes about 15 minutes downhill bur hard work back up .The bus stop is 3 minute walk from hotel there is a free bus service every 5 minutes from the bus stop to the lindos square and Local services every hour to rhodes town .pefkos ,lardos ect
There are 2 super markets about 3 minutes from hotel which stock most things and a nice bar and resteraunt called the ice bar if you fancy a change from hotel
Entertainment is low key with karaoke on 2 nights singer for 1 night which both finish at midnight and there is a greek night and a barbque night which cost 15 euros per person but are all you can eat buffet type.
Hire car is available through reception and we had on for a week and i would advise people to do if even for a 1 day as rhodes is a beautiful island .Our best was a drive to monolithos castle and then a drive down to fourni beach where we were the only people on it .Also some lovely inland villages like lachnia kattavia asklipio and embanos .Prassoni beach at tip of island is very good for watching windsurfers and kite boarding some are really world class.Also a great barbque night on sunday night on beach at skala in lindos our best meal was Roulas in Lardos a lot cheaper than Lindos and massive portions
People need to book this hotel and if they get a refurb room its a bonus but the other rooms are still better than 80 percent of accomodation in lindos
