We have just returned from our week long visit to Lindos Gardens. We stayed in a studio for 2/3 people, which featured 3 single beds (would have preferred a double but understand they get better use with singles), a small kitchenette (not great assortment of pots/pans/utensils if u wanted to do actual cooking) and a large terrace/balcony. Room size was very generous, kept reasonably clean (although one day, randomly, no one came to clean our room) but linen and towels were a bit old. Although they provide toilet roll and towels there is no hand soap, which was a bit strange.
As it was a heat wave and August the air-con in the room was a must, we paid 70euro for a week. We also chose to pay for the safety deposit box (pretty small, so wouldn't fit laptop or ipad in it) for 15euro and 5euro for the wifi (they don't mention there is a charge for this on their website, but it is just a one-off charge).
All the staff were friendly, helpful and pleasingly not very pushy (i.e. not trying to sell you drinks or food constantly). This reflected the attitude of most of the Greek people we encountered; hospitable and proud. We felt very welcome and at home in the hotel and in Lindos generally - it is a beautiful little village and having seen a lot of the rest of Rhodes whilst we were there, I'd say it was the best place to be based for a holiday.
The hotel complex is pretty good, both the main pool and the infinity pool are great. The 'mini market' isn't very well stocked, so we just went to the shop at the bottom of the road (2 mins walk) which has everything you could need at reasonable prices. There is wifi at the hotel which is fine by the pool, but wasn't very good in the room (we stayed in E block). Accessing the hotel from Lindos should not put you off, it is a 15 min walk maximum from the hotel into Lindos main square, although it is uphill on the way back.
Check in/out went smoothly, it is worth noting that you can pay for a late checkout (i.e. later than 12noon) for 4euro per hour. We thought this was reasonable and necessary due to the crazy flight times which operate in/out of Rhodes.
We only booked this holiday a couple of weeks in advance through Olympic holidays and felt we got a great deal. We also went on a few excursions through Olympic (Rhodes Express 21euro pp, Simply Symi 49euro pp, Island Tour 49euro pp) which I would recommend.
Overall, Lindos Gardens exceeded my expectations and ensured we had a fantastic holiday in beautiful Rhodes.
