This hotel is everything everyone has written about it and more. The staff are exceptional and genuine; the setting is perfect; the hotel is immaculate. For me the best was breakfast - the buffet was the best I have ever had, and the location quite stunning. There are a couple of things worth pointing out. Our plan was to walk into Lindos each night, sample the many excellent restaurants and taxi back - you can't walk to Lindos, there is no pathway and the road is dangerous and twisty for walking; so ended up taxis both ways, total 16euros (but still worth it, meal incl. wine and taxis around 70euros versus hotel buffet 70euros plus wine). The hotel should consider a shuttle bus into town. Hotel pools have little or no sun (at least when we were there in Sept/Oct) and so we used the beach (which was great). There's not a lot of sitting area in the hotel, which is not a problem unless the weather is bad (which is rare). We were upgraded to a room with a shared pool; the pool though can be awkward if you don't know the neighbours very well. I would give the shared pool rooms a miss - the double rooms are great and need no extras (although many thanks Lindos Blu for the upgrade it was very kind). Don't expect a lot from the spa, it's basic but adequate. The beach is superb, but the restaurant facilities in the bay are very limited and not very good.
This is a fabulous hotel and we will certainly go back. The points above are only to help people plan their holiday - it should be seen as a hotel to relax in and do nothing but enjoy, and the staff and the hotel let you do that to excess. The pace is slow and if that's what you are looking for, there is no better place to go. It's definately a couples hotel for a nice relaxing, romantic holiday.
