“Good enough!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

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 :-)

Philipos studios have very comfy beds if you want extra pillows just ask the cleaner who came 6 days a week. The studios were cleaned every day except Sunday. Fresh bedding and towels changed twice a week. We stayed in room 1, we had a shared courtyard which was fine. If you want a room with a balcony ask for room 3, but it is for 3 people so you may have to pay extra. Well worth it for the views over St Paul's bay. I will agree that the motorbikes passing at all hours did not suit me but by the second week it didn't seem so bad. Great location for bars and restaurants . The cleaner was very friendly you can ask her for key to safety deposit box. 20 euros for 2 weeks. Every time we returned the cleaner had washed the floor, made the beds and emptied the bins. We were satisfied with her cleaning. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 1 & 2 are fine no steps to climb. No. 3 lovely views with balcony, no 4 guests not happy b...

opposite Town hall at St Pauls' bay end of town. In a residential area. Four studios downstairs,a one bed apartment on 1st floor and a two bed apartment on 2nd floor(which we stayed in) Very noisy location, a dog opposite barks all night. Cars and motorbikes drive up and down the road all night-which is supposed to be a no access road-but since my last visit some years ago the barrier to stop traffic has gone although the no entry sign remains. Loads of cats around too.
Beds are firm but ok. Kitchen ok-bare minimum of crocks etc. On arrival only 1 set of towels for 3, had to request more via rep. which arrived 2 days later! The apartment could with a good clean. Air con payable locally and expensive at 50 euros a week.
Remember if you stay here you have paid to stay in a 1 or at best 2 key apartment and should expect it to be basic!

Room Tip: i would go for the 1 or bed apartment-these have a big balcony overlooking St Pauls bay and the Acro...

Stayed here last year and due to the location decided to revisit and rented the top floor, location great for access to St Paul's Bay and village. This is very tired accomodation with aged fixtures and fittings. Although the cleaner visits frequently the standard of the cleaning is awful, it seems no cleaning products are used and the dust is moved not removed. There was blood on the stairs and hair in corners and sinks, light bulbs failed and were not replaced. Booked with Thomas Cook, I hope they drop them for the future as these apartments/studios are a very poor reflection of standards.

Apts filthy,maid never cleaned it in the 2 weeks we were there,just emptied the bins and tidied the bed. She was timed one day by another couple that were staying there, 9 mins it took her to do the whole block.We reported it to the rep three times and nothing was done about it,thick cobwebs everywhere and the smell was that bad we slept on the beach the first night.The only good thing is the location.

We are currently staying at the Phillipos apt in the 2 bedroomed apt. This apt is very spacious and the balcony views stunning. It's location is ideal as only 2 mins from beach but also away from any village noise! The cleanliness in the apt is a bit on the poor side needs a good going over not the spit and lick it's been getting! The only major bug bear is the cost of air con €100 for 2 weeks!!!!!! We went to corner shop and hired a fan for €30 for 2 weeks! Thomas Cook say air con has a small charge! Overall I would recommend these apt just be aware of " charges"
