Me and my boyfriend stayed here this month for 7 nights. The rooms as previously mentioned are basic but very clean with cleaners coming almost every day! The rooms had everything you needed! The gardens itself are beautiful! Our terrace was covered in amazing pink flowers. The apartments are very quiet and the pool area was relaxing with minimal children. You can hear a constant sound if grasshoppers and god knows whatever bugs... You have to try your best to block that out! Some cats and hedgehogs hovering around too. The lunch is great, you must have club pita(MUST)! Theo is great. Sunday BBQ has good food and great community feel.

The location was good! Yes there is a hill but the hill itself isn't the problem... It's the speeding cars, bikes and endless amounts of donkey poo ( be careful in the nighttime). Lindos is beautiful! Dionysos is the best resteraunt! Avoid Alex's, bad, unnattentive service.

Overall we had a great holiday and would stay again.

We have just returned from the Lindos Athena, having stayed for 7 nights...We landed late on Wednesday, Instructions were left on the desk to approach the pool bar, which we did to find proprietor Theo behind the bar, we received a friendly welcome and free drinks... after a while we decided to officially check in...
We had booked a two bedroom apartment, these are located on the ground floor of one of the accommodation blocks at the rear of the complex, typical of what you might expect in Greece, we found the accommodation very spacious indeed, Ideal for a family or party of 4.
Each bedroom had Air Con, which was a blessing, basic crockery was provided, along with 2 ring electric hob.

Security Safe and Air Con locally charged at 10 and 50 Euro per week.

The room was clean and well serviced, our room was the last on the block and was quite private.

Although we did not use the on site facilities, the hotel has lovely gardens, nice pool and sun loungers next to the bar which is the central hub for meeting fellow guests and staff.

The hotel is located on Krana Hill which is 350 metres from the 'Bus Station, Main Supermarket for area, the beach is then downhill from here passing through Lindos itself. would suggest getting a simple map to make life easier. LIndos has plenty of restaurants, gift shops and tavernas to choose from.

We ate out on 4 evenings, Namely The Ice Bar (50 metres from Bus Station), Alex's and Dionysos in Lindos itself. The latter two are next door to each other in the heart of the village, most restaurants boast a roof terrace, usually with excellent views of the Acropolis.

We had Starters, Mains and Carafes of wine costing between 60 - 75 euros as a guide (2 pax)

However we do recommend going to Pefkos and eat at the Enigma, which is 50 metres from the Taxi Rank. The ambience was very nice, choice of areas to dine in, well presented tables with white linen, friendly staff, We were impressed by the flavour and presentation of the dishes, actually had dessert too and plenty of wine, there are dishes to suit every budget, we found the food to be the best we had, although price wasn't an issue, the Enigma was best value.
Bread and Dips (2), Starters (2) Mains (Sirloin / Grouper) Desserts (2) and 2 litres of wine cost us 65 euros

General Prices in Rhodes are:-
Wine 12 -13 euro litre, Mythos 3 euro bottle, Cocktails and spirits 5 euro upwards

We hailed a taxi from Lindos Bus Station to Pefkos, costing 8 euros, quick and simple, the bus costs 1 e 60c each. Do the maths yourself ! then a taxi back to the hotel gates, 8 euro.

I do believe Pekkos tends to be cheaper than Lindos generally.

Back to the Athena, On a Sunday there is an Optional BBQ and Karaoke night, 13 euros if you book a place..Tip of the day, get a place near to the BBQ, and beat the initial queuing, we decided to be polite and wait until last, missed out....
The Karaoke was a great way to hear some classics get murdered, which as the night progressed, the slaying increased, but it was fun we laughed amongst ourselves..

Overall we had a good time at the Athena, Theo and his family do a great job in carrying out his late Father's wishes of providing a great Lindos place to holiday

We booked this on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and feedback from Travel agent, The Athena does get a lot of return guests year after year, just by speaking to fellow guests we established this....If I was to come back to the South of Rhodes, I would consider staying again, just for piece of mind. It is what it is, does what it says on the can, If you want bells and whistles book elsewhere.

Room Tip: We had Room 202, furthest away from bar and pool, least likely to get passers by, This is a two bedr...

We arrived at two in the morning 25th June 2014 and was met by Theo the owner at the bar who offered us a drink on the house, the appartment was minimal but more than adequate and clean. The two bed appartments don't have the best view but wonderful banana plants, gardenia's, flora and fauna. Air conditioning was better in our room but the teenagers room was suitable and they didn't often come in at night till early hours! The appartment terraces were fairly large and we had washing lines which were a god send for our constant washing of swim wear which dried quick in the heat 46 degrees apparently one day. TV was not great but we weren't there for that! The bar is the hub and can be open till 5am so bring ear plugs in case near that area or light sleeper. the pool is nice not big but great if not too many people. I would say more of a place for couples or families with older kids and there seemed to be people that had stayed many times before one couple we're going to have there wedding there. Supermarket next door which was very handy. Lindos Athena has other hotels nearby who always welcome others and the nearest bars including the ice bar is a ten minute walk towards the town which is another ten minutes all down hill and It is harder coming back up the hill but a taxi is only 4 euros and far less arduous. Lindos is lovely loads of lanes, shops selling all manner of souvenirs, china, glass, clothing etc ranging from cheap to designer. Lovely restaurants and bars, great desserts. We are at Medeast, Hermes, Maria's, Ice bar, all great and in Lindos all the restaurants have roof top dining with a view of the magnificent Acropolis. We went on two excursions, water park which was clean, plenty of food areas and rides and the time of year we went no queues and we went to Rhodes by boat and returned by coach, lovely just wish we had spent more time there as the boat takes 3 hours and a taxi is 70 euros on way. Check out the taxis as they have price boards and they can be very reasonable as are the buses which are frequent. The only disappointment was Thomas Cook who were brilliant when we booked our trip but not so great with 3.5 hour delayed flight, no rep on the coach that we sat on for an hour before it left for our appartment in the early hours of the morning or the trip home which again was delayed and one of our suitcases which was I thought hard plastic was smashed up on the way there not surprising the way they hurl them into the plane!! Anyway fab trip otherwise, memorable. My daughter and her friend are now linked to the
Lindos Athena on Facebook so that they can check out those they met. So hello to the lovely Izzy and her sister and a lovely couple we met on the boat with the beautiful baby Georgia "Bonkers"!!!!

Room Tip: We had a two bed appartment which was more than suitable, maid service approx twice, clean towels et...

We didnt stay here but used the pool for most of our holiday. It was really handy for us and the staff were very friendly at this hotel. There are plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds (though we did come out of school holidays). Food at the pool bar is lovely- recommend the pita club- but watch out its huge!! Think the pool area could do with some tlc in places and a bit more of a thorough clean each day- this may happen in peak season though. The prices of the pool bar are good value. Would recommend a visit if close by as friendly and good sized pool.

We have just retuned from the best 10 days holiday we have ever had! Lindos Athena is a great place to stay to explore Lindos and it's beautiful sights and smells, or if you prefer to laze around the lovely pool area this place fits any bill!

Theo and all his family and staff can not do enough to make your stay with them fun, relaxing and comfortable, the Sunday evening BBQ and karaoke night is one not to be missed! Rooms are clean and comfortable, ours were cleaned very regularly with bedding changed at least every other day. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept and the views are spectacular!

We arrived as a couple in need of a complete battery recharge and left with a host of great new friends and a very big helping of love for this lovely place. Already booking up for next year!

We travelled out to Rhodes on 28th May 2014 and stayed at the Athena for one week. The accommodation is a good standard of basic and the gardens are lovely. Maid service is daily except for Sunday and the bedding is changed every few days. The cooking facilities are very basic but we didn't intend to do any cooking anyway! Theo is a lovely host, everything centres around the pool bar and prices for drinks are very reasonable. The pool looks good although we didn't use it, with sunbeds and parasols around. Just one thing to remember - DO BRING EARPLUGS. The bar stays open as long as there are people wishing to remain there so we heard voices some nights until around 3.30 to 4 am. We were not too close to the bar but the noise in the background is still a distraction. We were warned by the reviews and once earplugs were in position there was no problem at all. We didn't get the opportunity to use the sunbeds much as the weather was not very good at all.

Room Tip: We were in 217, situated in the middle floor towards the opposite end to the bar so is much quieter
