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.
It is described as a Five Star De Luxe and it certainly deserves that category. Our room was beautiful and the maids left flowers and sweets on our pillows.
The hotel is geared to Germans so the satellite TV was mainly German channels, and while we were there, most of the guests were German.
The food is good with a good choice, although we did find the fish night challenging as neither of us like fish, but there was a BBQ so we didn't starve.
A car is essential, unless you want to spend the whole time lying by the pool. There are a couple of tavernas and restaurants within walking distance, but very little else.
Due to a cancelled flight, we were put into the Rodos Palace (also a five star) but there is absolutely no comparison.
A lovely hotel with nice gardens, spotlessly clean - thoroughly recommended.
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!
Best hotel i have ever been to
The Atrium is a great place for anybody.
Fot teenagers such as myself there is not enough time to fit everything in. All of the animation team are constantly offering activities. Little kids can go off and pla a mini golf tournament whilst older kids and adults can play table-tennis or dart competitions. The winner gets a drink for a prize either at the pool bar or the evening meal.
Every morning i took part in aqua gym which s water aerobics. This is a lot of fun and a good laugh. Dont expect to keep your hair dry!!!
The next thing i did was to play waterpolo which lasted for 40 minutes. If you dont like all of these activities then you can still swim in the pool. After all it could overshadow a small country.
Mt sister's goal for the holiday was to sunbathe till her heart was content and her tan was supreme. The weather did not disappoint. It was brilliant and it stayed out all day. The good thing was that there is no end of shade if you do not want to get burnt to a crisp.
When looking online i heard that the hotel is owned by architects and you can defenitly tell. The hotel and the rooms are perfectly designed and decorated. The atrtium in the middle of the hotel is great for pictures and my mother loved sitting there.
As far as food is concerned my sister shows just how good it was. Before we went on holiday she insisted that we must go out for at least half of the meals but after one nights half board she was hooked and that was it we only went out 3 times in all two weeks. I reccomend that you defenitly try the barbecue night. It is the best meal.
The hotel is in just the right area. Lindos is a 10 min bus ride and Rhodes town is only 45 mins. The donkey ride in Lindos is great. When you first walk out of the hotel you can hardly see any shops or restuarants. At closer look you will find a couple of small food shops which have the best cobs for lunch and also a few very nice tavernas. Defenitly go to the small restuarant just down the road. Go out of the hotel turn right and follow the road. The teverna is next to the hotels tennis courts and they have something for everyone and a lot of traditional greek dishes.
If you are going to book this hotel then definately book the flights and accomodation separately. Last year in July my mum said she would give me total control over where we go as long as i got below a certain price. I found a site called medhotels it is brilliant. Wait for the last couple of weeks before you go and the prices plummet. I got the flights from Britannia.
Me being only 15 my mum and sister were a little worried but i did not disappoint. We all said it was our best ever holiday.
A lovely hotel with great staff
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!
Fantastic place for a holiday
Absolutely fantastic hotel. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Guests can join in with all the animation programs or just sit and watch. Food excellent, service excellent and rooms were very well positioned and cleaned every day. Little extra touches in the rooms - our beds turned down every night and a sweet on the pillow. Our daughter was poorly on our first night and the staff couldn't do enough to help us. Our cleaning lady left us flowers on our departure night!
It is the most relaxing holiday we have had, and we really enjoyed it.
You do need to hire a car there or use local buses to get around the island as Kalathos is quite a way from the sightseeing areas. The hotel organises all that aswell. First class hotel, definately recommend it to anyone who's thinking of going to Rhodes. We're definately going back!
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!!
Atrium Palace, Rhodes, Greece
I was sorry to note that there was no review of this great hotel.
We stumbled on it almost by accident, and have been returning there every year, usually twice per year. The hotel is by far the best hotel I have stayed in in Greece, and is superbly relaxing. It is the most "American" of hotels in standard, and situated far from any other distractions. It is very much on its own, with its own private stretch of pebbled beach.
The staff are exceptionally friendly, even more so than one expects from Greek Islanders, and justifiably proud of their hotel. The hotel is a privately owned hotel, and especially suitable for children. It seems to have lots of space for quiet times, despite the occasional popularity with families.
The food is terrific, and freshly prepared daily.
Although not essential, it is helpful to have a car due to the relative isolation of the hotel. There are superb attractions nearby, including the historic city of Lindos. I can highly recommend travel to the west side of the island especially in the Spring, when long and winding roads through pine forests and wild flowers is intoxicating.
As a recent visitor to Raffles Hotel in Singapore, and Gleneagles in Scotland, I rank the Atrium Palace as being in the class of relaxation of these other two world leaders. I have already recommended a large number of friends to stay there, and they have also become hooked on their love of the Island and the Hotel...

Travel Blogs from Lindos
... let off locals who lived off the beaten track. Hot and tired, we have to walk another 15 mins from the bus station back to the hotel. So it took 4 hours for us to get to and from the beach. All this when there was a beach just across the road from the hotel....not convinced that Lindos Beach was so amazing that it was worth all that effort! But I can now say I have been there, swum in the water, seen the medieval castle, looked at the other side of Rhodes.
... of us decided to go buy floaty beds so we could lay in the ocean all day long! One of the best 5 bucks Ive ever spent! We paddled and layer in the beach for hours! Very enjoyable.
I then ventured into the old town of Rhodes and had a shop and look around the original medieval streets.
... we were off to bed. Emily was hilarious when she was drunk, she had started calling me a sheep shagger & about 4 people actually believed her that that's what New Zealanders do!! It was hilarious though that people actually believed that. Emily is too funny, constantly making sexual jokes & when she's drunk it's even funnier! Eventually Stacey & I went to bed by about just after midnight, knowing we had an early start the next ...
... England for the month of July, working with both students and teachers. I was ecstatic! My dream job!
I interviewed for it, got the job, talked with my professors and arranged to miss classes for four eeks, and flew to England! It was a great experience. I returned in 1998, but in 1999, the travel company associated with the program hired me to be an administrator for ...
... old city. On our way back to the medieval town we stopped at a ceramic store owned by a man and his wife. They showed us how they formed these beautiful pieces of pottery. 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. ...
