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 ...
... medieval castle walls atop the site of the original temple and it's surely a worthwhile historic place to visit, despite the crowds. In fact, many of the people that day were actually staying at Lindos as opposed to other wonderful towns on Rhodes. Which we soon learned all about.
After a pleasant stroll back through town that seemed less burdensome since we were now the ones going downhill we visited the historic Orthodox church. Lynn and I both were required ...
... and lands a big mouthful on me, extinguishing my health. I die a painless death. "F**K" I say as I watch my lifeless shark sink down through the water on my tablet. Dad, Mum, Moya and I were on a plane flying across the Aegean Sea “Seamus put the game away we’re landing soon ok” mum said. I nodded a yes back to mum. Plane flights can be a real pain in the rear end sometimes but not when you have a tablet full to the brim with video ...
... here is very impressive and makes the fortress visit a much more enjoyable historical and cultural experience. Departing down the Grand Staircase (a concept common in so many historic residences of great rulers), we departed the palace and had concluded our time in the old town.
Next, we were off to the airport to pick up our Avis rental car. I mention the company name only because it was a lousy experience from the beginning to (nearly) the end. ...
... Lynn loves dance of all types and never misses an opportunity to sample the local offerings (see Ubud, Bali 2013). Winding our way through the labyrinthine maze of alleys was in itself a thrill as we stumbled out of arch-covered narrow lanes into broad squares or suddenly found ourselves in front of a 500-year-old mosque while in search of the dance studio. Using our best interpretation of the map we had we thought we'd closed in but instead found ourselves at the ...

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.

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.
