Well im 2weeks back frm my holidays in Lindos (sept 18th - oct 2nd) staying at the Phillipos studios.....we had the top accommodation with the two rooms and private balcony,
Lindos was stunning as it always is....beautiful...breath taking and i know i will never grow tired of going to this wonderful little village!!
Now to the accommodation Phillipos..... it was a really good size, good size bedrooms and each had its own bathroom room (1with shower and bath - the other with shower only) It had a good size kitchen with the basics for self catering but i have to say we didnt cook in there once - we ate out every night the most we did was make a cheese/tomato cob and that was it. The kitchen had a microwave that we never used and also there was 2fridges - 1 didnt work well at all - only kept things slightly chilled. The other fridge though looked knackered and rusty, it worked perfectly - so this was the fridge we used only.
The rooms were tired looking and now are in need of a paint brush and tidy up (i stayed here once before about 8yrs ago and the place was in spanking condition then) but having said that it didnt really bother any of us at all - after all we just wanted a decent "enough" room to sleep in and thats what we got.
We had clean sheets and towels every 3rd day and the cleaner gave it a flick over - the toilet bin was emptied most days. Was the place clean (as so many people have asked before) well honestly not really but it wasnt that bad it made me go and buy cleaning products (except bleach which we poured down the drains in the bathrooms and the kitchen sink (when we arrived the smell of sewage was rank) but the bleach soon sorted that!! So again not a problem :-)
We didnt use the air con whilst there because we just kept the bedroom windows open at night and luckily enough for us the nights in lindos was now cooler so we got away with out forking out 50e a week for EACH room (so it would of cost us 200e for the fortnight - alot of dosh extra to budget for )
Now to the noise of the traffic and the dog that so many have mentioned....for me and my other half it didnt bother us to much as we had the back bedroom but yes we could hear both but for my father/mother inlaw the dog yapping every night and the traffic more or less on the go all night was another matter - drove them mad for a fw days (back home like most of they have double glazing so you dont hear anything) they got used to it and could more or less ignore it!!
We met the cleaning lady a few times - she was lovely and we do acknowledge the fact that she had alot of rooms to clean elsewhere and im guessing she isnt that well paid.
The thomas cook rep Stacey was very good ....was very helpful when we arrived there one of the rooms didnt have any sheets or pillows - that was sorted the very next day .
We paid 30e to keep both rooms on (we was meant to be out of our rooms by middday but wasnt being picked up till 5.30pm) and paid 2.50e to the luggage man (which we left on the kitchen table for the cleaning lady to collect) for each case to picked up later .
So all in all very happy with our accommodation - for the price we paid £420 each for 2wks in Lindos it was a bargain. Iv added some pics so you can see for yourselves :-)
