“Disappointed”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I have read some of the other reviews, as I did before I booked but I cannot relate to the glowing reports about this place.
The apartment was very basic. The beds rock hard and had very sharp corners on the chipboard bases. The pillows were flat and the towels past their best.
We had to dismantle the shower head and clean it because there was so much limescale, it was only spraying out of a fraction of the holes. The shower curtain rail was holding up by luck not expert fitting.
There was no plug or bowl in the sparsely kitted out kitchenette-I always though that preserving water was paramount on the islands. Our room was cleaned the day after we arrived and it absurdly stank of dirty water, after the cleaner had left. The mop was then put on the floor, outside our room and deposited a pile of hair on the tiles, which remained there for the next two days.
On the plus side, the pool area has been well developed, although there is either loud music and/ or three large TV's competing against each other. The Reception staff were very helpful and it was manned all the time.
The Restaurant menu is very limited and the Greek salad that was presented as 'the best I will have ever eaten' was bad enough to send me down to the village each evening( along with the annoying waiter).
Air con is expensive, as is the very small safe in the wardrobe in the rooms.
The complex is built on a very steep incline, ask for one of the lower rooms if you cannot impersonate a mountain goat!!

Room Tip: Low room if you are not a hill climber!

We returned to the UK the day before yesterday after spending a week at Lindos Gardens and can't recommend it highly enough. I took my 16 yr old daughter and her friend - the staff were fantastic, the accommodation and facilities were great and the views are stunning. Lindos Gardens is about a 5/10 minute walk from Lindos Village and the hill isn't too bad a walk. There are a couple of Supermarkets within a 5 minute walk of the complex in either direction. We took a bus to Rhodes town for the day, the bus goes from the square outside the appartments and was only €5 per person each way. We all agree that we loved Lindos and loved our stay at Lindos Gardens and would definitely return to stay again.....efcharisto to all your staff from Zoe, Meg and Daisy (2G)

Just came back after 7 night stay at lindos gardens my first visit here, but my partner has been a few times and recommended it for us to go for a relaxing holiday.
Now I can see why he has come back a few times!!! Great hotel with a good location to the town of lindos. All that you needed for a self catering hotel from the facilities to the room!! Our room was situated at the top of the hotel a bit of a walk but worth the view once you get up there. Mainly off all the staff were amazing a big thank you to Lulia, Cloud and Jack for making us feel welcomed and the laughs we had!!! We will definitely be returning next year!!

The best place I have stayed in Greece. These apartments are set in the cliff so the furthest are reached by many steps/steep slopes - but the views are great and it is really quiet! There are 2 pools - the main being quite shallow but with a swim up bar and lovely sun beds, and the infinity pool higher up in the complex is smaller but deeper - and has great views of Lindos Acropolis! Everywhere was clean and fresh as if it had recently been painted. Our room was fairly modern with plenty of storage and could have slept 3 but the beds were rather hard. The kitchenette was fairly basic, as expected - but we only wanted a fridge and kettle. The bathroom had a constantly dripping tap but otherwise was fine. The staff are really friendly. Most of the guests were British. Air con was expensive (€49pw and €70 if we'd arrived a week later!) but acceptable in my mind as the apartments were so cheap. 2 or 3 supermarkets are nearby. The village is 10-15 minutes walk away and is wonderful - plenty of rooftop dining in the many tavernas! The food was superb - not one bad meal in 2 weeks - the steaks melt in your mouth. You can easily get a cab back (€4) if you don't want to walk up the hill plus there is a restaurant within the complex. These are apartments and a resort that I would certainly recommend!

Room Tip: The rooms near the infinity pool are quieter and have good views - but be prepared for climbing up t...

We had a lovely time. Our first visit to Rhodes and had a marvellous time at Lindos Gardens. Nothing to complain about. Apartment spacious, good view over the acropolis and sea, facilities excellent, and to cap it all the service provided by Cloud at the infinity pool was superb. 8 stars at least! The rep from Olympic Holidays could not have been more helpful. We confess to ignoring the health and safety advice and hiring a scooter which provided us with great experience of those places which may be otherwise inaccessible and improved our prayer skills in the process!

We stayed at the Lindos Gardens the first week in May, this being our second trip to this hotel. We stayed here before 3 years ago in August for our 25th wedding anniversary so we thought we would return as we got a good deal. We have been to Rhodes over a dozen times over the years and this trip was great. We had a good room 3C which had a lovely view of the acropolis and not too far to walk at the end of the night.. The apartment was adequate but would have liked a toaster, it was cleaned most days but the towels could have done with changing more often. The hotel pool area has been done up since our first visit and this is a great improvement and looks really lovely lit up on an evening. The staff at the hotel are all friendly, Jack the bar man and his assistant looks after everyone and makes you feel really welcome.Only one down side was the breakfast which we had a few mornings, this was poor. One of the things we liked was that there was all English people staying and we talked to most of the other guests which made our holiday more enjoyable. We love Lindos and this is a great base to stay, the 10 minute walk on an evening to the square was a nice start to the evening. The restaurants are all really good we ate at quite a few Mythos, Dionysos , Acropolis all very good, we also tried the Melonos but this was very exspensive, would not recommend it you are mainly paying for the the setting and the views..
We will certainly return to the Gardens hopefully in October this year if possible!! :)

Just returned from a week at the Lindos Gardens for our silver wedding. The hotel was spotless and much better that the "basic" we were told to expect. The rooms are large and well fitted out and immaculately clean. The staff were great and so helpful, special mention to Cloud who ran the top pool bar, great fun. The food we had was good as was the service by the ladies. Jack behind the main bar in the evenings was a character. Only drawback was the extras you had to pay for (safe, internet, A.C) but I know the tour companies screw the prices of the rooms right down so they have to make a profit somehow to maintain the excellent standard. I will return to this excellent hotel in this lovely spot of Greece

Room Tip: Go for a room up the top of the complex for the best views
