“Exceptional service only matched in Dubai”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

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..

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have better uninterrupted views over the bay and involve less lift negotiation.

Dear Guest ,

Thank you for taking the time to share your kind feedback on TripAdvisor following your recent stay here at Lindos Blu.

I am glad to read that you enjoyed many aspects of your stay and my colleagues could enhance your holiday. It is rewarding and motivating to receive such feedback concerning the hotel staff.
Lindos Blu management as part of the improvements for season 2014 will allocate new areas where our guests can sunbath especially for the period end of September and beginning of October when due to the location and the architecture of the hotel there are less sunny areas around the hotel.

Furthermore we would like to note that we accommodate any food and dietary requirements that people may have and I am sure that this must be what you have noted during your breakfast meals as there was no issuing mentioned during the period of your stay
All your points, regarding the restaurant opening hours, room equipment have been taken into serious consideration and corrective action will be taken, where needed.

Thank you so much for all your comments concerning our hotel staff and for taking the time and trouble to share your feedback with us. We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.

Kind regards,
Thanasis Tougounzoglou
General Manager

We have just returned from our first visit to Lindos Blu and loved the place, what a fantastic hotel. In some 35 years of travelling i have never met such friendly and efficient staff, the staff only further compliment the Lindos Blu well deserved 5* status. Our room and hotel were spotless and the whole package great value for money. All the other guests we spoke to during our stay further echoed our opinion of this lovely luxury hotel. We will most certainly revisit the Lindos Blu in the very near future.

Room Tip: Kock yourself out trying to find a room with a bad view!!

We've just returned from our 4th visit to this great hotel. The place itself is looking as good as ever and we never get tired of that amazing view. Fantastic weather, food, drink, relaxation - including free yoga and massage treatment. All this plus an amazing room upgrade in our second week to a double suite with a shared pool - thank you Elena & Katerina. The hotel is ideally placed half an hour walk, from Lindos which we tried for the first time - take care and only advisable during daylight. The local bus service and taxis help get you around the island if you're look to sightsee - Rhodes Town is only an hour away. Nice touch from Thomsons this year with free reserved seats and taxi transfers both part of their A La Carte range. As always we stayed half board and found the food amazing and varied with the only repeat dishes being everyone's favourite desserts. The staff here all gel as a fantastic team 100% focussed on their guests. World class service from Anastasia, Evana, Dan, Valentina, Anna, Erik, Carolina & Thomas. Thank you team Lindos Blu for a fantastic holiday.

My wife and I have just come back from a 10 day stay here. This is what we found. The hotel itself is 6 years old and looks like it was finished yesterday. Yes, it is spotless, because the maids work like slaves and are worth their weight in gold. It's a lovely place with some modern features, but the emphasis here is service. Shift Leader Paganiotis on reception is a master at this. Nothing is too much trouble and all staff are very eager to please. The top bar doesn't open till 5:30pm. You want some lunch there at 1:30? No problem. They will make it for you and then haul it up from 3 floors down with no complaint. It's this and other things like it that sets this place apart. However, as amazing as the staff were, there are some gripes.
Firstly, the top pool area. Some people have complained that there aren't enough sun loungers around the pool. This is because there isn't enough ROOM around the pool for any more. And the fact that the breakfast is served on the same deck till 11am means that you could be eating, while 3 feet away, someone is slathering themselves with factor 20. A bit strange. The bottom pool is no better. It is tiny and only accommodates 9 sun loungers. And the nearest toilet is floors away.
Secondly, and this is my main one, The journey from the top of the hotel to the beach is truly ridiculous. Between the four lifts down is a maze of corridors, stairs and outdoor space to conquer before you touch the sand. Also, no-one has mentioned you need to venture through Lindos Mare (Lindos Blu's sister hotel) to reach the shore. Going to the beach every day was an unfathomable inconvenience. If you do triathalons however, you'll be fit enough.
And thirdly, I didn't get what everyone was raving about regarding the breakfast. There is a decent selection of food there but no more than any other four or five star hotel offers.
Overall we had a lovely time here, largely due to the staff. The food here is extremely good and were told we had been upgraded for the last three days for our anniversary to a room with a shared pool. The staff move all your stuff to the new room for you. Amazing.
Special mentions must be given to Paganiotis on reception, George the porter, the whole room service team, Thanassis in the Five Senses restaurant and a special thanks to Theo at Five Senses for his professionalism and being an all round good guy.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea but don't get any sun.

My wife and I decided to visit Rhodes for the first time in several years. Checking Trip Advisor we decided to visit the two top hotels for a week each. I wrote a glowing report of the other hotel which had the best food I had eaten in a five-star hotel. The second week we visited Lindosblu. It blew us away. The Trip Advisor comments are located the extreme friendliness of the staff. They were right. Far and away the friendliest staff I have seen. And extremely competent. The food was by far the best we had ever eaten. I think I gained 5 kg in chocolate alone. In visiting other resort hotels I am happy if there is one breakfast and dinner sweet that I really like. Here every dessert and sweet is beyond compare. 10 or 15 choices each better than the other. I have it on good authority that the pastry chefs are on loan from Zeus on Mount Olympus where they prepare his winter ration of ambrosia. They merely come to Lindosblu in the summer to sharpen their skills so that the gods will have even tastier fare in the winter months.
It seems that the friendliness of the staff rubs off on the guests because I have seen far more interaction and friendliness among the guests here and anyplace I have been.
This is the best hotel I have experienced--better than the 6 star hotel in Dubai.

Room Tip: Any room has great sea view
