The success and top rating for the Lindos Blu starts and ends with the exceptional service of ALL the staff. They ensure from the moment you arrive until your departure that everything is done for your convenience, comfort and satisfaction. The hotel is seven years old but looks and feels as if it has just been opened. Luxury furnishings and fittings abound whether in the guest rooms or public areas. The building has a unique architecture based on the geography of the site: a rocky outcrop on a headland. The hotel is upside down with the reception at the top level and all services and rooms stretching down to the beach area. Unfortunately this means negotiating four or five lifts down to the pool bar adjacent to a public beach. Any guest wishing to indulge in a bout of serious sun worship will have to visit the beach as there are not enough sunbeds or loungers around the three small pools. Sun bathing on your balcony is a no go, the balconies are in shade the whole day. The breakfast is of an exceptional quality although buffet style however we did hear a couple of US and German couples issuing breakfast orders to the staff. The evening meals are of a high standard but overpriced. We ate most nights in Lindos and had excellent value meals at the famous Maria's restaurant. Although close to Lindos a walk into the town is only possible during the day along a very busy road with no pavement, definitely a negative for us. The one recommendation we would make would be to open the restaurant earlier than 1900hrs to alleviate some of the early congestion which results just after opening time. My wife also suggests decaffeinated coffee and bathroom scales in each room!
Would we go back yes definitely but we would hire a car for the duration and take George's guidance and recommendations for superb local beaches and the best visitors' attractions. The staff were a delight and we hope they all return in April 2014 when the Lindos Blu reopens because without them the hotel would quickly slip down the ratings..
