I last stayed in Lindos in Villa Patrici which I understand is now private and also Philliposs Apartments, which were although basic - had a great view on the top apartment. This was about 10 years ago.
This time we settled for the 1st floor apartment which was pretty big with a large garden style terrace with a rock facing view but very private - and quite pretty.
I was really looking forward to Lindos as my partner and I struggle to choose every year and our best holidays were always there so we thought..why not! And I'm glad to say it's changed v little (as I'm sure most of you regulars know!)
To me Lindos By Night is trying to be a bit classier with less tacky music and Socrates has lost it's appeal a wee bit since Alex left and Socrates passed. Alex's restaurant was veryyyy slooowwww to the point we were almost leaving if it wasn't so late!
We hired a car from Rhodos Cars, great customer service and had a cabriolet for a few days, which we loved, but my forehead didn't :-/ Some beaches to recommend were glystra beach - small but has free wifi to keep the kiddies quiet if you have one. Palisades beach and Agathi were both lovely too but a lot busier. Lindos and Pallas were v busy (I'm just back btw) and we preferred it a bit quieter.
If I could recommend one bar it's Dreams Cocktails (just past Socrates on the left), very little people go to it but it's got one of the best views and staff are great.
Met some great people and glad it hasn't changed too much apart from a few rude nationalities which I fear I can't mention on here. Am I going back! Definitely!
