“VERY NICE !!!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We staied here for 3 nights,in August.
The hotel is well manteined and the pool area is lovely and very clean, really good to relax after walking in Lindos town.
The position is perfect:close to everything you need but far from the crowd of the busy Lindos centre.
The studio we had was cleaned every day and the owners were very helpfull and cats friendly.
We will surely be back !!!

Just got back from staying here for 5 nights. Great location, lovely and peaceful - have no faults at all. The owner Antonio always said hello and was very accommodating. The walk down into LIndos is much better than the walk back up! I would definitely stay here again.

We booked these apartments about 3 weeks before we left and were pleasantly surprised by how good they were for the money we paid! The pool is excellent, everything is clean; the only downside is the aircon......you need air con in the summer but it was so pathetic!! The only downside though! The location is good and having the cats is so cute! Say hello to them and the donkeys!!

Great location, apartment and pool area. Really tranquil and the reason for that is largely the deliberate absence of kids so not the place for you if you have a few in tow, which unfortunately for me means I would go elsewhere. Otherwise though, a great place if you are a couple or on your own - would really highly recommend it. Air con is an essential though - take it from someone who thought they could do without!

Room Tip: I enjoyed the ground floor room which was located at the front and end of the block - it provided a...

Just got back and had a great time. The Rafael Studios are tranquil. No traffic noise, no kids screaming....just the sounds of water trinkling, crickets buzzing and the odd goat in the distance. The pool area is excellent with plenty of space and a good sized pool for swimming. The studios are also a good size with a kitchen area, decent bathroom and large bedroom. Antonio is such a nice guy, not intrusive in anyway. He just lets you get on with things (its your holiday after all) but if you help or just fancy a chat he is a really friendly. If I had a slight critisism it is that the towels were not changed often enough for my liking. But overall for the price we paid the Rafael Studios are certainly excellent value and have a lovely relaxing setting.

The bus stop is about 5 minutes walk away and a super market is even closer. Lindos beach is about 15/20 minutes walk but you can get the shuttle bus back up the hill to make things easier in the heat. Lindos has many good restuarants and bars to choose form.

Fantastic location for Lindos town. Bus stops to Pefkos or Rhodes. Beautiful views. The owner Antonio has worked his socks off for ten years to make this a relaxing, clean and ambivient enviroment to pass on the riegns to his son next year...Rafael.
As ever on this Island, everyone is so attuned to your needs and comfort.
Seriously...Book and enjoy. You wont find better!
Thankyou!

My girlfriend and I have just come back from Lindos where we stayed at this hotel, and I would honestly say that this exceptional hotel was exactly what we were looking for; and any previous negative comments about Antonio (the owner) are pretty pathetic.

The hotel has large rooms with everything we needed. You don't generally spend a lot of time in your bedroom on a sunshine holiday anyway, so the facilities available were more than sufficient. Every room has a view of the pool and a balcony, which we very much enjoyed sitting out on of a warm evening playing cards and drinking a few beers!

It is located in a quiet area surrounded by picturesque mountains, and you are literally a 5 minute walk from the absolutely beautiful town of Lindos, and 2 minutes from 2 supermarkets. The atmosphere around the hotel is very friendly and because this is a small complex, everybody tends to say hello to each other and there is a warm vibe around the hotel. The pool is perfect! Great size, great temperature with plenty of sunbeds surrounding it. Pool bar/snack bar serves good and very reasonably priced food and drink, and the small team of staff are very friendly.

As for comments about Antonio being rude and a "jobs worth"... don't even take notice of them. He is a quiet man but was always happy to help and we had a few nice chats with him... really nice guy and has clearly put a lot of work into the place. As for him sitting by the pool bar all day not doing anything... so what?? When you're on holiday why would you possibly care about how much work Antonio is doing in his spare time? How could that possibly affect your holiday? So ignore those petty and childish comments, as everything at Rafael made for an incredible young couples holiday and I cannot wait to go back there again next year!

P.S Take some mosquito repellent!
