Historical Traveler Reviews Sentido Lindos Bay Resort & Spa
Worst experience ever
hi i went to visit lindos bay in 2004 i was very excited about visiting the country and beautiful hotel(as it seemed on the website pictures can be deceaving)as i looked up at the hotel it seemed wonderful(but not yet seeing the inside) i soon entered the reception it seemed very nice but looks arent everythink we took our keys and took our lugagge up to our room and as we got upstairs and into the room it was very small and not at all mordern there was no washing facilities and as the second review from last i have visited another all inclucive hotel and they however did not serve the same food every night but diferent foods every day however as we settled into our room we found that our beds were not at all comfortable the pillows were hard the beds were hard however i had to put up with it the maid service was excellent and rooms were cleaned every day and staff were very friendly but however the manager of the hotel was very bias as all the entertainment were for german,itialins and the same entertainment was showed everyday and when all the germans and itilains had left the entertainment stopped i was very dissappionted because there wasnt nothing to do exspacet two shops about a few kilomtrs away,we found dead cockroches and the manger was very very unfriendly anyone looking to go there i ask you please dont its a waste of your time and money and i made a vey BIG mistake going there.
Not the most enjoyable holiday ever
My wife and I along with 10 friends recently stayed at the Lindos Bay Hotel to attend a family wedding. On first impressions the entrance is lovely but soon deceiving. As on other reviews the bedrooms are dated and the bathroom is dingy. Please note that there are no shaving points in the bathroom and only one poorly lit light. We were fortunate to have a sea view which is stunning however as being a group booking one of the group 2 x 19 year old females were put in room not overlooking the sea with a door which did not lock and a balcony door with its lock broken. When we complained to reception we were greeted with a shrug of shoulders and were informed that there were no sea facing room left and they were fully booked. (The hotel was half full being near to the end of season) After complaining for over 30 minutes we finally got are friends moved to another room where the locks worked.
Further to this one of the 2 lifts broke down, with one of the females stuck inside for 20 minutes and when we spoke to the staff about it they informed us that they were aware of the problem.
I cannot fault how clean the rooms are and the cleaners do a marvellous job apart from banging and shouting at 8.30am and if that does not wake you up then YANKEY DOODLE DANDY will when its played every morning.
The food is what I would class as a school canteen and the food is not that great. We only dined in the restaurant once and then eat out every night. LINDIAN INDIAN is a great place to eat if you like Indian along with the Steak House next to it. T-Bone Steak for £10.00 The Courtyard Bar is a great place to drink.
If your brochure states that there is children's club then forget it because there is not. The entertainment in the evening is so poor it's funny. One night the entertainers were making fun of disabled people and when we informed them of the bad taste they just laughed and walked off. I also heard one of the entertainers swear infront of children and then say dont worry he cant understand me he is German.
On a good note the views are amazing if you get a sea view and it's worth taking the boat trip, which leaves, on the far left of the beach at 9.40am. It's 12.5 Euros and it's worth every penny.
We all loved Lindos and its sights and we have said that we will return however I don't think I will be staying at the Lindos Bay Hotel.
Well what can i say.
This was a superb holiday for the money. The hotel was clean. The food was great and the entertainment was wonderful.
We have a 7 yr old and 20 month old and i have to say that just before we went out i looked at the reviews. I was extremely worried about the last couple of reviews that had only just been entered and all i could think of was what had i let myself and family in for. Well all i can say is we got of the bus looking for anything that may be wrong with the hotel. We were expecting the worsed, and i have to say we were very pleasently surprised.
When we walked through to reception we found it to be lovely. We collected our keys and the excitement started to grow. When we got to our room we found it to be very spacious (and it needed to be with 4 of us). We had a lovely view from the balcony which gave a slight sea view as well as a panoramic view of the hillside which surrounded the bay. Now i have to have a little grumble. the floors in the room are carpeted and are not very modern. The bathroom is tiled and there is very little light. My husband found it difficult to have a shave without keeping the bathroom door open for some light from the liitle hallway into the room. But that really is all that was wrong. The maids were in every day and cleaned the room. The sheets were changed every couple of days and the towels were changed every day. Like i said it isn' the most modern room ever but you get what you pay for. I do recommend you take a travel kettle as you don't have one in the room.
The food was great. I'm sure i have come home a stone heavier (freightend to check). There is a slight downside to there not being an awful lot for children. Chips are served every couple of nights or so. But there is pasta dishes and vegetables and i'm lucky my children will eat a variety so it wasn't hard to find them something to eat. My husband kept raving about the food all holiday saying that previous reviewers didn't have a clue. Don't get me wrong it is all inclusive food. It is served in batches and it is in trays where you just take what you want but we found it lovely.
There is a bus that leaves every morning and takes you to lindos or rhodes. The pools are very clean and the beach is lovely although i would recommend swim shoes for everyone as it is pebbles.
All in a wonderful holiday and if you go with the attitude that it didn't actually cost alot compared to other all inclusives you will be very happy with your holiday.
Dodgy Food And Some Really Well Fed Cockroaches!!
Where shall I start...... To be fair the hotel does have some pluses. The hotel bar staff receptionists, and entertainers are extremely courteous and efficient, and as previously mentioned in a previous review work extremely hard. As you look out from the terrace area at the rear of the hotel the view is quite beautiful, and the pool very inviting, however this soon wears thin when you discover the downside. The food is served, not buffet style but more in a style resembling a factory canteen, large metal trays of "slop" kept warm on a hot plate. This may sound a little harsh but is unfortunately true. The choices available also became very repetitive. We even heard on the grapevine from a fairly trusted source that the hotel had recently failed a food hygiene examination. The rooms in the hotel although roomy had an odour in the morning - some sort of blowback from the drainage system. To add to this my husband went down to reception early one morning to find two cleaners chasing a very large cockroach around with brooms. Dead cockroaches could also be seen around outside the hotel. The location of the hotel is pretty remote with the nearest civilisation a five kilometre taxi ride away. The area is very rocky baron and mountainous so may be a little tricky for the less able. All there is within walking distance is a taverna and two small shops, a couple of dodgy looking car rental firms and a very skinny donkey in a field!!
Go to Lindos because some areas are stunning, but if staying at the Lindos Bay Hotel allow for the fact that you will be eating out a lot. Just don't have too high expectations.
arrived at the hotel and was impressed with the lobby and the location. was dissapointed to find that although requesting a sea view and a low floor we were on the top floor at the back. found the room very spacious but dated, with some fairly dodgy looking electrics, including an unsealed switch in the shower. the tiles had peices missing from them and had been filled with concrete! to give them their due though the rooms were kept spotlessly clean and smelt fresh. the food defied belief, you could trace it thru a 3-4 day cycle, with the meat being a main course the first day, with pasta in the second, and in a salad in the third. the resteraunt smelled constantly of mildly rotting food, and every single of the english guests complained to the rep. i am a hygene inspector for the government, and would not allow my pregnant wife to eat in the resteraunt most evenings. for info though their is a nice little resteraunt down the road where the food is fresh. the bar staff worked really hard, remebering my childrens orders all the time, and the animation team, although with limited resources, worked extreamly hard, keeping both adults and children entertained. without them the holiday would not have been as good as it was. so go to lindos bay, but with a caution that you may need lots of extra money for food!
I have to disagree with the bad review given below.
Just got back and found the hotel friendly,clean and modern.
The food is Italian biased ....much pasta and stuff...and very samey but that applies to any all inclusive hotel I have been to-but we didn't find any apathy toward Brits at all.
The staff were efficient and friendly, making much fuss of my daughter (11 months old), the pool area is good and clean with the beach 50 yards away.
The only thing that I found as a down point was the lack of anything to do after midnight but I imagine this may change with more devlopment
this holiday started badly with a days delay.
from then on though it was great .the food was good.the cleanliness was beyond reproach.
the staff without exception,from the lads in the outside bar,to reception and cleaning, restaurant as well.
special mention must be made of kyriacou and mike in the bar for the exceptional service.
i mustnt forget janna who although entertaining the children always had time to speak to any adult in a most helpful way.
id go back again.
The Hotel and it's staff were excellent!! The food was great , I don't eat - fish, poutry or pork because 'I don't like the taste' I was amazed by the choice and quality of food available. I can assure you that I ate well!
Our room overlooked the Med, we heard the gentle lapping of the waves when we settled down to sleep and again when we awoke, magic!!!
We visited this Hotel in early May 2004,and found to be a well run, clean and friendly hotel.
Expect to meet other europeans staying at this hotel, we met German, Dutch, Itlalian and of course, Greek people when we were there. We loved every minute of Rhodos!
Lindos Bay Hotel GREAT...
Great hotel, staff excellent as was the food. The whole place was very welcoming, couldn't find fault with anything. We are going back there next year, kids loved it as well as there was always something to do. The entertainment staff work incredibly hard and do a fantastic job..
Fantastic hotel - been there twice. Staff are lovely, food is good and the cleanliness is out of this world. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday with no hassle hotel.

The water is lovely. Much colder than Crete (which is still my favourite island), but not so cold that you can't get in. There seems to be alot of tourists here from Russia, Czech Republic, Finland and Slovakia. I imagine if you are coming from a very cold climate then the water here must be like bath temperature, so there are lots of sunbaking white people on the beach who intermittently throw themselves in the water, ...
We arrived in Rhodes at around 7am, but disembarked at about 8.30, I wasn't really sure what to expect from Rhodes, but was pleasantly surprised! Its a medieval island and has an awesome beach, with a diving ledge!
We began the morning with a huge swim and some jumping from the pontoon! ...
Woke up feeling quite hungover this morning, but funnily enough everyone was feeling the same. We had to be down at 9am ready for a walking tour of Rhodes (that we had travelled to over night). They had docked in port this time so we didn't have to stress about the tender boats but we did have to be down waiting with tom otherwise we would miss the tour of the island. Tom was even feeling hungover, so the tour was a bit quiet but in ...

They paint the pottery with colors that can be found in nature. We then ended our driving tour just outside the walls of the old town. We did a walking tour through the old town. At the back of town they had three tall walls as well as three mots in between. ...
