“Inspiring place, tranquillity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

It is a nice hotel, where you meet all the staff, owners, you experience a personal touch that I think truly makes a difference, compared to huge, impersonal all-inclusive deals. The balcony view from all rooms is fantastic - just a few steps to the beach, which is nice, pebbly & sandy, clean, not crowded at all ... A perfect place to relax, enjoy the sun and the sea, eat well - restaurant Glyka Nera is great, the lovely lady Lila, who serves there is just as sweet as Lila Pause chocolate ;). Tassos also, the nicest guy there, really friendly, smart and pleasant. You must try mylokopi - white fish from their sea, one of the best I've ever had! ***** to Nikos, the cook, too. The place is never too loud, right in front of the hotel there is a supermarket with everything you need, a bus from the nearby hotel takes you to Lindos and Rodos, Lindos definitely must be seen. I have no complaints. I think it is good to go to a trip around the island while you are there, to have a glimpse of other places and the western coastal line, wild and windy, perfect for surfing. The ceramics is also amazing on Rodos, the Valley of Butterflies as well. I recommend it to everybody who prefers local amiability to impersonal westernized hotels with no character. You'll love it and will probably want to come back to this beautiful spot on the earth. The scent of the sea foam, oleanders, pine trees and the beauty of this place is inspiring, I miss it already.

Room Tip: they are all good with air-con., wi-fi, kettle, beach-view

Tasos, is the owner ofmthis small hotel/studios. It is so peaceful, and relaxing and is run by Tasos who is very helpful. Food is lovely or you can get taxi for few euro into LIndos village, night life is good and restaurants plenty. Back to hotel, it is right on beach. You can go from studio to pool to beach in 3 minutes. We absolutley love it. We have been 3 times in the same studio by request as we wanted a ground floor one. Would i return? YES, BUT ITS ALWAYS BOOKED AND I CANNOT GET A BOOKING.

If you want a holiday with honest Greek style B&B go to Yota Beach. If you want chic artificial environments don't.

Yes the furnishings in the rooms is a bit tired, yes the bathrooms need a bit of a face lift. Yes the breakfast is basic but its fresh and good, could do with changes through the week though. But let me tell you that you will not find a cleaner , friendlier family run 20 room hotel business with all rooms having sea views and a sunrise to remember forever, plus with a team of the friendliest staff I have met worldwide! And a view to be envied by any beachside hotel, it's less than 30 metres from the water, it's gin clear and there is a water rides company about 100 metres away where you can rent a boat by the hour to explore the islands and local inlets even into Lindos bay! Banana rides, parasailing or jet skis. Or you may just want to walk the Yota beach. Don't do beach then go sit beside the sparkling pool and be served by the bar staff all day, lunches are great. Sun is on it most of the day. There are also car rentals from along the road, would recommend getting a car just to get around and explore the island, is is breathtaking in its history and natural beauty, from beaches to mountains to Rhodes town history, various acropolis temples and little roadside tavernas.

The restaurant is separately run, but brings this proposition together with STUNNING authentic Greek foods and hospitality. The recent chef change and the brilliant personalities of the table and bar staff really made our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble, you can do posh or homie food, great selection of local and international beers, lagers and spirits, good local wines. Wonder why most of the guests from other hotels come and use both the restaurant and bar facilities, the answer is in the food and the personalities of really genuine polite and professional team. Loved all of them.

My promise to you as a reader; if you are not looking for flash, but are looking for functional, if you want a "home" base and somewhere to come back to for the evening, you won't go far wrong and you'll have money in the pocket to spend on your holiday not on flash fittings and fixtures.

Loved it, all of it.

We first stayed here back in May 2011 after getting married at the Lindos Mare in September 2010. We would often meet friends and family at the Lemon Tree Bar as it was approx halfway between us at the Mare and them at the MareBlue & Lindos Royal. We instantly fell in love with the staff and Tasos & the family. Before we left we enquired about the apartments opposite the hotel's pool and booked an apartment for May 2011 as soon as we got home. We stayed for 2 weeks in May 2011, 1 week in August 2011, 2 weeks in May 2012 and re-visited the restaurant/pool over a 2 week period in August 2012.

We absolutely love it here. The pool is fantastic right opposite the apartments and next to the hotel. You never ever have to run for a sunbed, there's always plenty of sunbeds. The beach is a 1 minute walk away and the bar is right next to the pool. The supermarket next door is extremely reasonable and again the staff there are super-friendly. Our daughter often plays with their children and they have the best sandwiches!

I have to say though that Tasos, his family, Stavros and the rest of the restaurant/bar staff always make our holidays special and once you get to know them, you'll soon see why we and other British holidaymakers keep returning to stay with them. The apartments are cleaned on a daily basis and the beds are made too. The food is lovely (the lamb kleftiko is out of this world!) and the cocktails are fab. These guys work damn hard, often up before dawn and don't stop until gone midnight. They will cater to your needs, if you want something extra or different with your meal, they will be more than happy to assist.

We've met some wonderful people over the past few years and can't wait to stay at this lovely family run hotel again. Even if you don't stay at Yota Beach and you are staying at the Lindos Mare or Mareblue or Lindos White etc then please pop in for a drink or a meal. It's much cheaper than anywhere else in the area and like I said before, it's really nice food.

The hotel is a 5 minute drive away from Lindos, situated on sandy Vlicha beach. It's away from all the hustle and bustle of Lindos but in perfect location if you fancy popping over there to the shops and tavernas. Parking is available directly outside the hotel and Big Blue Watersports is opposite on the beach in case you fancy a go on the donuts or jet skis.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, if you want authentic greek food and a relaxed atmosphere in a friendly family run hotel then Yota Beach is awesome. Can't think of anything negative to say really. It's a little gem.

We stayed at a local villa for 2 weeks and towards the end of the holiday we checked-out the restaurant at the Yota Beach Hotel. Big mistake! All 4 of us had the beef stifado, the meat was tough and appeared to be straight out of a microwave and covered with a sauce that looked like it had just been made from a packet mixed with onions. In addition we were asked if we wanted bread in a very surly manner, which came without butter, plate and cutlery, so yet another round of engaging with the staff and had to get another knife as the 1st one had food on it. Finally, this meal was more expensive than other taverners previously visited. In summary; we would not recommend this hotel for a meal.

We spent a week in Lindos during August 07 and whilst we were actual residents of Lindos Mare (next door) we spent all our days (and money) at this little gem called Hotel Yota.

It is located right on the beach and has a great pool / bar / restaurant area. The hotel has recently added some new studios and apartments and are well worth considering. The management and staff are very accomodating especially Christos, Panos and his son, and Max.

We stumbled on the Yota after the poor experiences at Lindos Mare, in particular the crazy sunbed situation at the pool, no tea / coffee in the rooms etc etc . . . . see our separate review on the Lindos Mare.

Next time we visit Lindos we will stay here and not even consider the Lindos Mare
