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 ...
... relative comfort, at least in late June. Late July and all of August might be a different story. Our schedule, though, required an 1100 arrival so we knew we were going to be fighting through the crowds. Our number one approach to this kind of situation is to climb up as high as possible as quickly as possible in the hopes of leaving any stragglers behind, a sort of thinning of the herd, as it were.
Alas, nobody visiting Lindos on this day was to be deterred ...
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.
Rhodes town sits at the nothernmost tip of the island. The historic old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features some of the best-preserved medieval walls and one of the most famous historic castles in Europe. Situated just off the southern shore of Asia Minor (Turkey), Rhodes understandably has been directly in the path of all of the history of Western Civilization from ancient times until the 20th Century. Thus, its historic center, seemingly surrounded by water, is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atrium Palace Thalasso Spa Resort & Villas Lindos
Just come back from a week there, and it was Heaven. The staff were really friendly, the hotel was spotless and the weather was sunny.
Stayed here in April 2003, but only just found this site to review it! We had booked via Medhotels to stay at another hotel in Lindos, arrived to find it closed (which was a great start...), but tried the Atrium and found we had in fact been transferred (well done Medhotels) - and were delighted! This is a smashing hotel. It is very nicely designed and fitted, and the main features were (i) staff - without exception, friendly, charming, helpful - especially in the restaurant where the waiters were exactly what you hope for on holiday (ii) food - a good/excellent buffet, with some dishes of the day served by the waiters. Good choice and quality, variety each night, lovely breakfast. (iii) clean, very well maintained, lots of nice little touches eg. drink receptions with live music several nights in the atrium itself. It is a bit isolated and a car is very helpful -it is some way out of Lindos. I have no hesitation is recommending this, save that folk with children might want something with a bit more entertainment for them. Incidentally, our second week was at the Grand Hotel in Rhodes - a sad contrast, as the Atrium was everything the Grand was not!
The Atrium is a great place for anybody.
My husband, myself and our 3 year old daughter traveled to the hotel in early June 2004 for 2 weeks, staying half board. The hotel is lovely, with beautiful gardens and discretely positioned terraces surrounding clean and well desined pools. The sunbeds are comfortable. The room wasn't huge and the balcony was small, but it was acceptable. The spa is brand new and offers a good range of treatments. The food is offered in a buffet and there was a very wide range of an acceptable to good standard. Constantly getting up and down for food is a bit tedious but works quite well if the hotel isn't too busy. The staff in the hotel are really welcoming and nice from reception to the restaurant to the cleaners and the entertainment staff. Entertainment was fairly low key although there was something every evening. The hotel run children's club is not suitable for children under school age in my opinion (they say age 4-12). This was disappointing for us as we'd hoped to get an hour or two's peace! There's a small playground for young children. All in all, a really good hotel I would go back to and recommend to others as long as they're not looking for too much entertainment.
Top Place to stay and centrally located
I booked the hotel and then came on this site (doh!). I read a couple of negative reviews which kind of put me off but after arriving and staying their for 2 nights I've gotta say this is a REALLY good hotel and I'm not just referring to the facilities. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The service was superb as we called room service 10 times and each time they arrived with a smile and were always happy to help. Basically this hotel take it from me is worth the cash!
Believe me you won't find a better place for the price. I've gotta mention the spa and gym - loved it!
What a hotel!
Stayed at Atrium Palace for two weeks in September 03. Best hotel ever,paradise!. All of the staff were wonderful,food excellent,rooms kept spotless by the lovely Antonia. Fantastic and clean pools.Got married there and the hotel arrranged my reception far better than I could ever have wished for.Did not want to leave,will definately be returning again.
It is almost certainly the best hotel I have been to. My family and I first stayed in oct 01 and reviseted in oct 02 having enjoyed it so much the first time. It is a really nice and relaxing holiday in a really quiet area and is a perfect holiday if you want a relaxing holiday. The rooms are really nice and spacious with a big bathroom and plenty of wardrobe space. It is good for couples and also small children however if you have a teenager wanting a more lively holiday then they may not enjoy it however i am only 17 and i really enjoyed the rest being on a full time dance coarse. Ilove it so much me and my boyfriend are about to book to back next summer!
Absolutely fantastic hotel. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Plus side:A great place for a nice, relaxing vacation. Great swimming pools, above-average hotel buffet meals. The location has great access for touring the island ( be sure to check out the vast, unspoiled beaches from Lindos down to the southern tip of the island ).Slightly Negative side:Avoid the room service. Although the hotel was rated at 5 stars, I would rate it just a little over 4 - only because they didn't have alot of the little premium extras you would expect from a 5 star ( for example, there was no bathrobes, slippers etc. that you would normally expect in this rating level ). I was a little surprised when I asked for a cappucino with breakfast and was told they didn't have any ( I later noticed that cappucino was available thru room service and I forgot to ask why you could not get this with breakfast??).Conclusion:Well worth the money. You really will not be dissapointed!!
