... me, sunbathing and lounging as much as I could. I will never forget one day, waking up, and finding a huge third breast on my chest!! Yes, this really happened!
The sun must have been so strong, that it made a huge, horrible blister on my chest- OH THE PAIN.
What made it so much worse was the water pressure in the pool, and we ...

Rhodes is really called "Rodos (pronounced "row dose") by the locals. It is the 4th largest Greek island. Winter population is about 120,000 while in summer it doubles because of its weather and beaches so tourism is an important part of their economy. They ...

At 12:30 we boarded our bus for our tour of the Town of Rhodes. We did a short driving tour through the town and drove by the beach where the Mediterranean meets ...
... This was one of the 65. Oh, my; did it pour. Fortunately, the clouds and thunder and lightning warning caught my attention so I settled under an umbrella table at The Archipeligo Restaurant on one of the main squares of the Old Town. Soon, I was shifting to a table in the back; the rains were too much for the canvas protection near the street.
I enjoyed a local beer and a margharita pizza while I ...
Saiamüüja ringutab hommikul alles rõdul.
Mõjub pisut hirmutavalt, kui hiiglaslik Diagoras manööverdab Symi miniatuurses sadamas. Saar kaob kiirelt aegade hämusse ja maakera kumeruse taha.
Rhodese sadamas pakub rolleril vanamees tuba, aga ma lehvitan vastuseks tiibu ja kulutan aja ära hommikusöögi peale varemete keskel. Orienteerun netist pähe õpitud kaardi järgi uue turuni ja ...

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!!
