Have just got back from Lindos Gardens after a two week stay with my partner. We arrived last week of June and were given a room in A block without a view. A room with a view is totally amazing so i'd suggest you to request this. Pools are good, in busy months i.e June, July and August its difficult to get sunbeds at the pool area as selfish people tend to put their towels on them at about 6am...
Rooms are o.k, beds are rather good. As usual there are a lot of the holiday moaners on here complaining. They have nice clean sheets and the matresses really aren't that uncomfortable, I had some good nights sleep until the heat of the morning wakes you. Air con is a MUST if you go in June, July, August. We lived without it for a couple of nights to save a bit of money, some of the most uncomfortable nights of your life as rooms are hotter than the outside!! mozzies everywhere and there's pretty much no way of avoiding them so be prepared to itch your way through your holiday.
Staff are lovely. No complaints about them. You get the ones you see all the time who are great to get on with, and the others just keep themselves to themselves but all give you a little smile.
As for the other things people have complained about i.e noise from donkeys, chickens, insects etc, get over it. It's lovely to hear things you don't hear in miserable old Britain. Though if you love animals be prepared to get upset about the skinny cats and kittens and donkeys the people there just treat as vermin. Seeing donkeys tied to trees with little or nothing that resembles food or water in mid 30 degree heat is NOT pleasant. One cat must have thought all her birthdays had come at once when we were there as, despite all her wounds and scars from god knows what we fed her and gave her milk every day and she loved us for it. Some may think we're mad and should leave them well alone because they could have this and that, but I don't care. They deserve just as much attention and care as the tourists do. Certainly far more than the tourists to Faliraki do! Hopefully you'll be lucky enough to have a loving little puss at your balcony door every morning. All she'll want is a bit of cheese and she'll love you forever!
Lindos town is great. Recommend some crepes with nutella for 3 euros, water all the time is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Beach there is great for a swim. It's just as warm as your bath, good for snorkelling too! Pedalloes and kayaks available. 8 euros for beach beds and pedalloes cost 10 euros for an hour. Restaurants are good, lots of the men on the door try to entice you in like creeps, just walk past them and go in if you like the ound and the prices of the menu. One of them who works in one with shoulder length black hair is particularly creepy. Good restaurants I recommend for food and price are Mythos, Stefanys, and the Indian does do some good Bhajees and Kormas if you can stand leering Indian men for an hour or two while you're there.
If you're after a good chicken gyros and tzaziki pita while you're there, a true culinary DELIGHT i discovered when I was there!!!!, there is a nice little place just near the entrance to the town opposite the shop where they (UNFORTUNATELY) keep little chirping birds in tiny cages on the wall. A nice, excitable brunette lady and her husband do some good ones for very good prices.
Lindos Gardens is recommended, Lindos is highly recommended. Sad to be back, roll on next holiday!!
