Our stay at Lindos Blu was out of this world! We arrived quite late (10.30pm) but were welcomed on arrival at the hotel by a glass of bubbly and a pint of beer! Our room was a double room with balcony over-looking Vlichy Bay and was right at the top of the hotel.( If you are booking i would request a room higher up in thr hotel to get the best views) The room was enormous with the most amazing views of the bay! The bed was extremely comfortable and the Jacuzzi bath was sooo relaxing. When we got to our room we have a large bottle of bubbly and a fruit bowl which was a lovely gesture. Truly first-class luxury.
We were booked as a bed & breakfast stay and the breakfast was a feast fit for a king! From fruit & yoghurt, full cooked, cereals, the continental hams cheeses etc to pancakes and waffles - all washed down with champagne!! We did have room service and lunch by the pool costing around £25 for pizza chips and a toasted sandwich. All the food at the hotel was excellent. Other guests who were half board said the evening meals were lovely but we prefer to try local tavernas!
The hotel is very modern with amazing views from all angles across the bay. The pools are gorgeous. They were a little chilly but as we went at the end of season (October 19th) this is to be expected. The gym overlooks the bay which is a wonderful view to look at while you work out. The sauna, steam room and indoor pool are very relaxing and were a wonderful treat when the sun went in about 4pm.
To get to the beach you use 3 different elevators and the beach itself was like a shingly sand and although small was a pleasant break from the hotel pool area. The hotel provide a beach waiter service for most of the day which means you don’t have to trek up to the pool bar to get refreshments or snacks.
On our first night, we decided to have room service. The waiter came up and set our table on the balcony so we sat eating and looking at the lights across the bay! A memory not soon forgotten. One of the nights we decided to try the local tavern just down the path from the hotel beach. Although the owner was a little grumpy the food was lovely! As it was end of season though some food was off the menu!
Most nights however we went into Lindos. It is a 20minute walk along the road which is ok during the day but dangerous at night. The local bus into Lindos runs fairly regularly but finishes at 8pm. If we went into Lindos during the evening we got the bus in (around £1.50) and a taxi back (around £6). Lindos is a must visit though and using the traditional Lindos taxi (donkey!) up to see the acropolis’s was a brilliant day out. The views of Lindos from the acropolis’s were outstanding. The tavernas in Lindos served traditional home cooked Greek food. Main point of advice is to use the ones that have a roof garden as the views from up on them were lovely. One restaurant to try is Medfest on the hill on the way into Lindos. It is owned by Ian and the waiters there were so polite. The food was the best food we had during out stay in Lindos.
The hotel staff were the most attentive, professional and caring staff I have ever met. The spa is a must to treat yourself. I had the Lindos Luxury Massage – although a little pricey compared to in the UK – the treatment was totally relaxing and I am glad I had it done.
I really could not fault this hotel. It is 5 star for a reason! Defiantly looking to book again for next year!”
