“Fantastic Honeymoon”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this wonderful hotel for 2 weeks in August / September 2012. Without hesitation, this is the best hotel we have ever stayed in and we have travelled to numerous places across the world. On arrival we were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne and our room had been covered in rose petals which was a nice touch. We booked half board and ate in the hotel every night and I can safely say it was fantastic every night, along with the excellent quality of the service.
All of the staff from the cleaners, bar / restaurant staff, reception staff and porters were absolutely brilliant and could not do enough for you, this made our stay even more enjoyable. I have to give a special mention to Savas and Eva in the upstairs bar, they were excellent and my wife kept Savas busy experimenting many of his superb cocktails throughout our stay!!
We normally go to different places every year, but we are planning on going back to this fabulous hotel at some point next year. All in all, we had a fantastic honeymoon, thanks to a wonderful hotel with excellent staff and superb food.
If you are thinking about staying at this hotel, do not hesitate, just get it booked...

We've travelled extensively and this is the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Everything is spot on and we enjoyed a fabulously relaxing week after a stressful summer. The hotel is stunning, very welcoming and with a relaxed atmoshphere created by the wonderful staff - every single staff member was polite, helpful and seemed to smile all the time - nothing beats that! Why can't it be like that everywhere?

The rooms are very well designed - a good size, light and airy, well furnished and with fab sea views - especially liked the large window in the bathroom providing sea views at all times (although you could pull down a blind if you wanted more privacy!).

The food was varied and excellent, with impeccable service.

The pool area was good, but we loved the beach. We never had trouble finding a lounger at any time of day, removing the need for the dreaded early morning scramble to secure your spot! It was sheer bliss to lie reading with the sea lapping round us, with enough space between you and your neighbours to not feel on top of each other. Also enjoyed swimming in the sea, but nothing to see whilst snorkelling!

Loved going into Lindos for meals in the evening. We enjoy walking, but the road is a main road with no footpath and looked very unpleasant to walk, so we relied on taxis - the service is very quick, but watch out for the 'I don't have any change' trick they pull or you'll be paying way over the top. My partner refused to get out of the taxi until the driver found some!

This is a fantastic hotel - we enjoyed the most perfect relaxing week, with the added interest of Lindos nearby. Although we love exploring new places we'll definitely be back at some point.

Just returned last week from our third visit to this amazing retreat. All you need to do is look through the other reviews to see how top notch this exquisite hotel is. We might have gone on holiday with a hint of intrepidation given that it's a return visit......How can an establishment get everything right year after year!!! Well, honestly, there's no need to fear. Everything just so, and this year we were greeted in all parts of the hotel by staff who knew our name. Such attention to detail goes such a long way to making you feel special and pampered. The room was perfect - newly decorated, spotlessly clean....even though we were staying in August nearing the end of the season, no scuffs on white walls like you sometimes see in other so called 5-star places. It's as though you are the first one welcomed into that room and it's been specially prepared for you. Full clean every day, and fresh towels twice a day. (Sorry environmentalists!).
Dining in the hotel is a treat, whichever restaurant you choose at whatever time of day. Breakfast is a slick but relaxed affair, with so much to choose from. Lunch at the pool restaurant is a welcome breather in the shade if you wish, where the service is impeccable and the menu delivers just the right level of choice from healthy fresh salads, through to refined pasta dishes or snackier options. Dinner in the 5 senses fine dining restaurant is a total treat. The new "meze" style plates (think Maize in London), are an explosion of flavour, and the celebrated "Lobster Night" is an opportunity to glam up a bit and enjoy a tasting menu full of delicious surprises. The setting is romantic and stylish, the service is attentive but discreet. Dinner in the a la carte Smeralda restaurant was a first for us this year and was a great option if you fancy an evening away from the hub of Lindos village / town.
Which brings me onto Lindos itself. Still stunning...twinkly candlelit rooftop restaurants serving delicious food. The local specialities are to die for - lamb, slow cooked rabbit, amazingly fresh fish. All superb, all well priced. It's a nice contrast to the elegant service in the hotel (where you never touch a bottle to pour your own water or wine), to be in a taverna style restaurant with a carafe of local wine on the table fending for yourself!!! And then it's back to the supremely stylish cocktail bar, overlooking Vlicha Bay, under the stars. Yet more attentive service and a new cocktail menu encompassing some spicy / herby twists (apparantly the direction cocktails are going in due to China and India's new found fascination with cocktails). Of course all the traditional cocktails available too!!
So all in all...so good we've booked for next year!!! Again!! Already!!! I know to some readers you will think it makes us sound like "stick in the muds", but I would say try it for yourself and then you decide. So many repeat customers in the hotel this year...we can't all be wrong! Thank you to all at Lindos Blu. We will see you next year xxx

This Hotel is wonderful for a relaxing beach vacation.The Hotel cascades down a cliff which, in addition to two pools large infinti pools, has a lovely swiming beach at the bottom on Vlycha Beach.
The Hotel itself is an ultra modern combination of glass, marble and chrome buildings, all conneted by walkways and elevators. It is high tech and funky and very pleasing. The rooms have all of the bells and whistles and then some. Most of the rooms have spectacular sea views and are ample in size, very clean and well appointed with toiletries,and fancy expresso makers.
The Hotel Staff is freindly and helpful. The room serivce is amazingly timely.
Do be aware that the beach is a bit of a hike. You want to be sure that you have everything that you need from your room. You will not want to go back for items left behind. There is a beach menu and food can be delivered to your beach chaise lounge. It is never difficult to get a shaded beach lounge area and, unlike many resorts, there is no need to awaken early to "reserve" a spot.
If you wish to go into town, although it is close, it is not walkable. The road outside the Hotel to town is too dangerous to walk safely, especially in the evening. Plan on taking a taxi which is not terribly expensive and easy to access (the front desk calls for one on the way into town and there is a central square with a taxi park for the trip back).

Room Tip: The best room value is the junior suite with ocean view balcony. The view is spectacular and room se...

Would not normally want to return to the same place with so many places to still visit. I have come away and would return here in a heartbeat. Everything from the friendly staff, fantastic food (again don't normally eat much in the hotels I stay in but ate here every night), chic rooms, beautiful beach. I can understand why people return time after time. They have so many special little touches. It would be prudent for other hotel managers to go and see what customers appreciate.

Just finished visit number 4!!! Yes 4!! Sad,I know. Little unimaginative, I know. Needs a little help from a doctor??! Definitely not.
From the second you arrive at this hotel, you fall in love. It is a serene place of style, but not overpowering minimalist scared to move or put a glass down claptrap!! It is a place where the staff are there for you every second of the day fussing over your every need - and yet, you don't even know they are there, or realise you actually want them until that second when they have satisfied the desire of that moment. The food is excellent, top notch, first class. If you are there for two weeks, the menu is different every single night.
The hotel will give you exact figures, but the repeat custom of the hotel is over 40% of the guests!! The British guests we have spoken to this week have all been before. I don't think my half witted review can say much more than that. Apart from to say, there are too many fabulous staff to mention, all of whom remember your name from previous visits and the new staff have it from day one. Many of the staff are young, multi lingual, and work, hard!! Mud in your eye for youth unemployment in this country. Maybe our European neighbours have youngsters that want to work!! (Sorry, its just a phase I am going through). Anyway, we are already planning our next return trip. It is like being estranged from the family for a year! Enough blowing their trumpet now. Just to say thank you to all the staff from the managers down,
Filakia, filakia, filakia.

Once you've been to Lindos Blu - You will struggle to go anywhere else. This is our second visit and the phrase "Welcome Home" could not of been said enough in the first couple of days. I don't know how they do it but everyone remembers you, not by face, but by name!

When we came here this time last year, we got engaged! This year it was our Wedding and Honeymoon. I know your thinking this is such a key event thats why they knew us, but no its the same for everyone else. This afternoon we met a couple on there 4th trip. They said " When you come here you know exactly how perfect it will be, we for one don't want to risk trying anywhere else" these are the sentiments of many of the people we have met here this year!

Where to start on the details you need to know.

The food service...... Dimitris and his team run the most seemless and efficient service. Even they way they redress a table at peak times....quick, slick, perfectly executed. Its all about the detail. PERFECTION!

and then theres the food...... Breakfast don't leave without trying Dimitris poached eggs in a morning - WOW! If you have lunch - the burger is a must, but word of warning - One between two even with the greatest of appitites is plenty. Evening meal in Smeraldo - 35 Euros each if your B & B - worth every penny. Soup to start, then buffet of some of the most incredible choices, before you are served your main course (Fish, Meat or Veggie) by this point you will be fit to burst but save a little space for dessert - Anthonys record is 5 in one night (he just couldn't decide) if you have a sweet tooth you will think you've died and gone to heaven!

Pool Bar - Bianca and Makis - By the end of your first day you think they are old friends, nothing is too much trouble. By the end of your 1st week Bianca will be your friend on Facebook. Bianca is now one of our very good friends, she even came to our wedding (along with Dimitris and Kasha) Z & A Tip - Beach in the morning, but friends are made by pool.

Luna Bar - Eva & Savvas - Cocktails are Savvas speciality - even if your not drinking them, sitting by bar watching them being created is fascinating. We often end our night there after dinner or a trip into Lindos Town.

Its one thing setting standards extremely high for a first visit, but to exceed these expectations as a repeat visitor is incredible!

Room Tip: Double Deluxe all the way - Incredible views and a hot tub on your balcony!
