Travel Blogs from Lindos
Very beautiful old city and ruins. 300 days of sunshine a year. Visited the Knights of St John castle. We have now visited the 7 wonders of the Ancient Greek and Roman world without really trying! Very warm day again but moderately cooler at 31 than they had 3 days ago - 47c. Sailed to Symi this afternoon, a very beautiful town with colourful houses perched on the side of the harbour. Had to have a banana ...
... we could at least park off of the road in a safe place, and thankfully right across the road from a flashy modern hotel, the Lindos View.
Luckily, the desk clerk was able to call Avis for us but was very unclear as to what our fate would be, telling us only that someone would be coming to Lindos to help us. We weren't sure if that meant that they would bring us a new car, send a mechanic to fix the car, or just send someone to pick us up and bring us back ...
I chew the human to bits and then swallow the bits of flesh floating under the water. I swim under the water searching for more stuff to eat. As I swim across the large expanse of water I run into a few submarine mines and they explode the moment I hit them burning my flesh, but the mines don't kill me so I swim to the surface to regain some of my health by eating another unlucky person. Out of nowhere a huge great white shark swims out of the depths of ...
... specific directions to our hotel, we had been promised that we could not miss it and we couldn't. Hotel Thomas is probably the largest building in this small hillside town with commanding views of the South Ionian Sea. We even had plenty of time to enjoy an hour or more in the incredibly clear waters of Fournoi Beach and a delightful stop at the medieval Monolithos Castle, a photographer's delight, especially as the sunset hour approached.
... were very large and elaborate floor mosaics from wealthy Roman homes that were displayed vertically in an outside garden but, of course, there was the obligatory 3,000-year old pottery, deity figures, and the like that are found in few other places.
The long days in Europe this time of year (stays light until 2100 at Rhodes) make it possible to continue doing whatever it is you want to do for hours even if you don't begin exploring at the crack of dawn so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lindos View
We have recently returned from Lindos where we had the holiday of a lifetime. There were 19 of us in total, gathered together for a family wedding. The accomodation at Lindos View appts is well above average, the cleanliness was excellent with daily maid service except sundays. The pools are great with plenty of loungers (free of charge) and there is nightly entertainment in the form of karaoke and quizzes. The food served in the restaurant was delicious and the staff were all very friendly. The bar is open 24 hrs. Lindos itself is beautiful, you will inevitably leave your heart there on departure day! We particularly enjoyed eating out at night time on the roof tops of the many many different reastaurants and bars. It was extremely hot every day and the nights were also warm and sticky, we would strongly recommend paying for air conditioning in the rooms of you accomodation (110 euros for 2 weeks). The scenery is fabulous and the setting at St.Pauls bay chapel (for those getting married) is breathtaking. We have already booked to return to Lindos View appts next year. It was a truly brilliant holiday!
Two years ago my wife and I stopped at the lidos view, as we were getting married at st pauls bay. The studios and appartments were very good and kept to a very high standard, the staff were very friendly and helpfull. This year (Aug 2005) we stayed in Faliraki and we visited linos for the day, popped into the view for a drink ( and a bit of shade) to our amaizement the bar and reception area had been totaly demolished (at the end of the season last year) and rebuilt for the beginning of april this year. We could not believe how much work had been done and how much it had changed in such a small space of time. Im not sure what rating it had two years ago but now i would say its a 4+ maybe 5*. I would highly recomend the lindos view to anyone.
Our party consisted of 8 people ranging in ages from 19 months to 83 years! Everyone agreed that this was the best self-catering accommodation we had every stayed in! Rooms were cleaned every day with the exception of Sunday with sheets and towels being changed every day as well! Two great pools and lots of sun loungers. A free bus runs close to the apartments down to the square in Lindos (between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm) - which was very useful as it was very hot! If you don't want to walk back up to the apartments in the evening taxis are available at 4 Euros. Lots of restaurants to choose from and lots of shops, though we did have several power cuts in the evenings which made it very difficult to see walking through the narrow streets.
I stayed in Lindos View apartments in May 2005 with my wedding party of 17. The hotel was great, very clean, spacious and friendly. There are two pools, both were freezing! There was a childrens play area, just being set up. The food in the hotel was lovely. We married in Rhodes Town Hall which was amazing. The Thomson wedding co-ord Gill, couldnt do enough for you and ensured that our wedding was just how we wanted it and went without a hitch, which was a relief after hearing of some nightmare weddings at St. Pauls Bay nearby. The night life was a little slow, but then it was not in peak season. However there are a number of great restaurants, all with roof top terraces and great views. The weather was Hot ..!!
Just returned from a relaxing holiday at the linods view apartments. The rooms are spacious and light and very clean, they are cleaned on a daily basis.
The gardens and pools are excellent and the staff very friendly. One point about them is the location from lindos village, they are quite a way up the hill so for the less moblile or people with little ones it may not be recmmended if you plan to go to the beach etc, but most of the people staying with children tended to stay by the pool anyhow.
If like my friend and I you want to go on the beach most days you will come back with excellent muscles in your legs!
After seeing many of the other accomodation in the village i would definately recomment Lindos view apartments.
Me and my partner have now been to Lindos on 3 occasions and everytime its been fantastic, the people are so friendly and the weather has always been great. the last 3 times we have stayed at Lindos View Apartments which are clean, well situated and just up the hill from the village and the staff are friendly and would recommend this for people of all ages to stay.
Easily the best apartments in Greece!
My wife and I have been visiting these apartments every year for the last six years, they are comfortable, clean and excellently equipped .
The owners and staff make you feel like one of the family.
With two beautiful pools, and a lush garden, I wish I was there now.
Still not long to wait till this years trip..................
Stayed last October.. It was great! Lovely pools.. friendly staff. Made the mistake of staying somewhere else this year..never again!
Just back from our 2nd time in Lindos, 1st time at the View Appartments. Rooms are exceptionally clean with a bath and shower over (very rare to have a bath in greece) also Hairdryers. Two swimming pools with plenty of comfortable sun-loungers and umbrellas. Pool-side bar/cafe serving breakfast from 8am, and evening meals upto 11pm. Very friendly waiters who will bring your lunch to your sun-bed if you are too relaxed to move! The bar is open 24 hours with sky tv - which the men enjoyed until the sun came up a few times! Would definately go back next year.
3rd time in Lindos.
Apartments excellent, spotlessly clean and excellent facillities.
All bars in Lindos are friendly, especially Jack & Sams the Courtyard Bar, as well as The Museum Bar, Antika's and the Sports bar of Georgio's.
Food great, Kalypso restaurant being out of this world.
Will be back every year.
