Lindos Mare Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lindos
We woke up early to walk into town to catch the bus to Lindos. Bus 17 turned out to be a lemon! We got the last 2 seats at the very back but hot air was pouring out from under the seat for the entire hour and a half trip. At Lindos we walked down the hill into the winding streets of the town and then back up to the Acropolis. Unfortunately it was closed due to a general strike ...
In the late 7th century A.D., Rhodes was fortified against attack from Arabs. Over the years it was further fortified and became an impregnable city from attacks from Turks, Franks and Arabs. We explored the wall around the city and the waterfront area. Swim on the beach across from our hotel. Very ...
Leaving the beauty and tranquility of Maheri and the villa was difficult. Mrs. Jenny and Costa gave us a gift of bags of oregano and mountain tea as well as a bottle of olive oil prepared in the traditional way with Costa's olives. The flight on ...
... by hand. This particular place was family owned, the owner took over from his grandfather and his wife's daughter and son's girlfriend were the ones painting the pottery. We climbed up to the top of another Acropolis that overlooked the ocean, again we walked about 300 stairs but it was worth it when we reached the top. We did have the option of taking a donkey half way up, but decided it may not be the best idea. After leaving the Acropolis we went to Dmitry's for some authentic ...
... top of Socrates street, and headed for the Palace of the Grand Masters, built by the Knighs of St John in medieval times, later partially destroyed by Ottoman invaders and rebuilt by the Italians as a summer residence for Victor Emmanuel and later Mussolini. The castle is in great shape, although there wasn't that much inside to see apart from a few impressive mosaics inlaid in the floor. We then walked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lindos Mare Hotel
We booked this hotel via the internet for our marriage at St Paul's Bay. It was the last week of the season but the sun shone throughout, and the sunny disposition of the staff matched.
We planned to get married in Rhodes and chose this hotel from the brochure in a travel agent, with little knowledge of what it would be like. The brochure stated it was one of their better hotels.
We stayed at the Lindos Mare Hotel in September 2003 and we were married in St Paul's Pay. We then returned to celebrate our anniversary in September 2004. Our wedding reception was held at the hotel and it was fantastic, the setting - which is a view of the sunset over Vlicha Bay, the table decorations - candles and fresh roses and rose petals, and the staff - very attentive, professional and friendly.
As a UK travel agent I am always looking for the best in a hotel, that is in service levels, rooms, location, food.... the list goes on & am always quick to judge the faults.
It was our first time to Rhodes and we were not disappointed!! We had booked our holiday fairly last minute and the Lindos Mare Hotel was smashing, particularly the location and the staff, who actually seemed to pleased to us. Special thanks here to Michaelis, Savvas, Giannis and Alexandra for being unfailingly cheerful, which can't be easy with so many people to look after. Apologies to those not specifically mentioned, but they were all terrific. The hotel rooms and public areas were very well maintained and the gardens beautiful. We had booked on a half board basis and whilst the food at the hotel was very good, we do like to eat out for a change. This did not present a problem as we were able to swop our evening meals for lunch on those occasions, which was great and gave us the flexibility we look for when on holiday. The weather was perfect too, which made it even more difficult to come home!!
Have just returned from my fantastic wedding/ Honeymoon, made memorable by our stay at this superb hotel.
Just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks holiday at the Lindos Mare. Rooms were spacious although our air con wasn't as efficient as our daughter's room. Both rooms had fantastic views over the bay (nearly all the rooms do). Food was excellent; breakfast was a wide selection of hot and cold food and the evening meal again had a wide selection of hot and cold food ( it was a buffet followed by a choice of 3 main courses one of which was a vegetarian option). Staff were very friendly and the head waiter Mickaelos was charming. The only down side of this hotel is that it is just over a mile from Lindos and in the dark with no pavement it was too dangereous to walk but the taxi only cost 5 or 6 euros. The hotel is on a bus route so you could catch a bus to Lindos or Rhodes but only during the day. Greek night was very good, but a bit expensive with a supplement of 11euros per person. The other entertainment was OK but nothing special. There was a kids' club for under 12s but she didn't seem to do very much with the 1 or 2 children she had. But overall a brilliant hotel and Lindos itself is beautiful and we would like to return one day. There are some good excursions in Rhodes but don't book through the rep as there are companies in Lindos who do the same trips for about 30% less.
Beautiful views pity about the service
Lovely hotel on the edge of Lindos village. Clean, comfortable with beautiful views over looking the sea. Relaxing and tranquil until meal times when sadly the restaurant resembled feeding time at the zoo. Too many people and not enough space. Every meal time being ordered where to sit by the head waiter who sadly lacked manners or patience.
We went to Lindos to get married in August 03 and stayed at Lindos Mare for the two weeks. The accommodation, food and views from the room were fabulous. The overall holiday here was excellent. The staff were fab.
We had our wedding reception at the pool bar overlooking the sea and our 20 guests were very impressed with the whole evening. We are returning for 2 weeks next August as the holiday was that good. We highly recommend this hotel.
