We have just returned from Lindos Blu, having had the best time there. The Hotel and staff are excellent as stated in all the other reviews and I will mention a few of the best points later. I thought to add value, I'd address a couple of niggles just to balance a (virtually) 100% positive review.
Not all rooms,balconies,pools get sun all day, the hotel is North facing so that is going to happen. However, the main pool area and the secondary pool both have sun traps if you want them and the hotel beach has all day sun.
For those of us who like a drink with our sun worship, the poolside bar closing at 6PM due to its proximity to the dining area was a bit of a minus, especially as this area gets the last of the sun and it is nice to watch the last rays over the bay with a long drink. There is a cocktail bar but we found the constant Fashion TV and choice of music a little too "clean" for our tastes (or are we getting older....)
The sound of the air-con and fridge in the room could make getting to sleep a little hard, but then sleeping in the heat without air-con and warm drinks would be more unacceptable!
Right, having spent the best part of two weeks prying out the minor issues above let me now take you through just a few of the features of Lindos Blu that you will notice within a day!
The whole Hotel ethos from the building through the staff and their attitudes to customers is probably the best we have ever come across. We visited at the back end of the season but everything was pristine and the staff always had smiles on their faces and made a point of engaging with you, if you wanted too. This was not just the "front of house" staff but everyone, the maids, the pool man, even the maintenance guys always had a smile for you. Everyone seemed to genuinely like their job.
The food in the main buffet restaurant, in fact the whole experience including service is the best we have found. After ten days they had not repeated themselves on the evening meal menu and the selections of hot and cold salads are a meal in themselves. As an example, on the last night their I was able to select a herbed, chicken leg, beef in tomato, Greek salad, lamb with asparagus, all before a main course of duck. Each day there are too many hot and cold dishes to count let alone eat, all excellent, and the same is true of breakfast and luch also. At least we think so, we only saw lunch from afar as, after a late-ish breakfast we didn't eat again until the evening meal at 8PM.
Suffice to say we have always been B&B hotel board people preferring to check local restaurants than be tied to one place. Not at Lindos Blu, when we return it will probably be half-board (and there are plenty of good restaurants in Lindos).
