... bread in. Tzaziki sauce is THE reason I went to Greece.
The next day on the cruise was a day at sea, (no stops because it takes a while to go all the way from Rhodes to Dubrovnik). I spent the day eating, swimming, laying out, eating, using the gym, and eating. In the evening there was a gala dinner and we had the most amazing salmon of life. Sheryll brought me some fabulous desserts; reaffirming my love for ...
... Rhodes was under control of Italy) the palace was restored for the King and Queen and Mussolini, but didn’t get to move in because of WWII. Apparently the Crusaders built forts along the way to the Holy Land and built forts after they got kicked out of the Holy Lands. They also built hospitals and served the communities they were in. We were told they did not marry and by that did not delute the culture of the places they settled in. Of course we are reminded ...
... looked like when it was first excavated. They also have the table of offerings at the temple. Umm... CJ wanted me to lay on it for a picture...I don't think so!!! Ok, so they actually don't even let you climb on it as its actually roped off. The castle was then built by the Knights of St John and surrounds the acropolis. There are also remains of a Roman temple dedicated to the emperor Diocletian and dating back to 300 AD. Did we ...
Felt a bit sad having breakfast, knowing that this time tomorrow we would be back home in cooler climes.
We had a few hours snorkelling and sunning at Tsampika beach, then on the drive back to the hotel we stopped at a good vista point for some last minute pictures.
Had a brief siesta on returning to the hotel, we have a horrible late night/early morning flight (kinda ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Garden Apartments Lindos
Good in Parts
Went 5/06/2004 to Lindos gardens. Rhodes airport very busy and had to queue long time for scanner on return. Had a studio room which was poor, seemed neglected, bathroom had no ventilation. Air conditioning essential! pool area excellent and we enjoyed this. Bar also very good open till at least 0300! Food served 0900 till 1800 this was also good. Staff very good! and very friendly. Would go again but would want better room even if it cost more. Lindos village good at night plenty of bars and restaurants. Walk down Taxi back (3Euros)
a group of us were staying at lindos gardens for afamily wedding the staff were 1st class! george the bar man and andrew the pool boy!what a star !
Great place, made extra special by the staff especially Andrew he made our week.We had a party of seventeen staying everyone enjoyed it.
Best holiday we've had!!! All the staff are really friendly and helpful, especially George the bar man!!! Placed just far enough from the beautiful village but within walking distance to go for the evening. Basic, as you'd expect from Greece, (but, if your spending a lot of time in your rooms whats the point of going abroad???) Would definately go back - same resort, same apartments. Loved it!!!!
The place is really nice, but the Boss man treats his staff like dirt.
Lindos Gardens apartments
Apartments were excellent, especially the new ones at the back. Not enough sunbeds for amount of people and the air conditioning costs a fortune. Other than that they were lovely.

Nice apartments in quiet location not far from town.
Went to the Lindos Gardens apts September 2003. Very nice apartments-unless you are in the basic ones in the garden area and around the pool, which are still quite nice but very basic and rather sparse with small balconies and no real shower surround so water goes everywhere! We had one of the garden studios on the last day as a day room to keep until the transfer for our late night flight arrived. We had a new apartment for the week though, which was spacious and had excellent views of the acropolis from the balcony plus a bath! The new apartments have their own small pool which is about 2 feet deep and ideal for floating around on your lilo. The main pool was quite crowded and not very big. We had to lay our towels on the sunloungers at about 9am before going for some breakfast. The bar area is ok for a few drinks before you head to the town which is a good ten to fifteen minute walk away. The downside of this is that there is a poorly lit track which you have to walk down towards the road then a steep hill into the town square which is well lit. Lindos is lovely. This was my second visit this year and I'm going to go back again and again. Theres just enough nightlife to keep the young ones like me occupied and just enough for families and couples of any age to do both day and night. Beaches are gorgeous too.
Facilities in need of upgrading.
The number of apartments have doubled in size this year and no increase in the facilities have been made. Very crowded around the pool, pool quite dirty and no chance of getting one of the very limited number of sunbeds after 8.00 am. Beware of many extras, air con for example is €77 per week, and is essential . Pool and bar prices are expensive, rooms basic but clean and well maintained, some of the shower rooms however have no window or ventilation so can be very stuffy. Facilities such as tennis courts and mini golf in poor condition. Location is OK about a 15 minute walk to the square, evidence of building work in the vicinity. Staff friendly and work hard.
Very friendly accommodation
Lindos Gardens is well situated, away from the busy square where all the trip coaches park. It is now lit in the evening with lamps at the side of the road. Maid service is excellent, they came every day to clean and changed the towels every day.
The pool bar was very welcoming. Snacks and light meals available at average prices. The pool was a bit cloudy, couldn't see my feet. Lovely showers around the pool to cool off.
Taxis from Lindos square to Lindos Gardens are cheap 3 euros. There is a free bus from the main square to the town square every 10 mins. would go back there again.
