Just come back from this hotel after 10 nights at the beginning of May. We arrived after midnight and were greeted with bottled water or fresh orange juice at reception which was a nice touch. Speedy check in and then taken to our room by golf buggy even tho it was not very far. We had room 74 which was in wing 1 and less than 10m from main pool. I don't usually like being on the ground floor but it felt fine here. The room was lovely free safe, table and chairs with complimentary water wine and fruit. There were towelling robes and slippers too. Shower had great water pressure and the complimentary toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion) smelt lovely. There was a minibar with prices not too bad €2 euro soft drink €5 euro spirit but we did not need to use this. They don't like you putting any of your own stuff in tho as you have to take their stuff out and the lady comes round every day to check so you are likely to be charged if you have taken anything out. We had enquired about upgrading to a pool room which was €55 Extra per night however these were in the main building on the ground floor north facing so no sun and not heated so would not recommend. The deluxe villas on the other hand we viewed were very nice with great pools and terraces and towards the beach.we would have loved one of these but at €155 extra would have more than doubled our holiday and was outside our budget but if within yours then go for it.
You are greeted by the restaurant manager on your first day and allocated a table for lunch and dinner so you can go at any time which we thought was great, not sure how this works in peak season maybe two sittings but we liked that we liked this idea. Breakfast you can sit anywhere and they bring bucket loads of freshly squeezed orange juice round along with coffee or hot water for tea. The food was great plenty of choice quickly replenished. For the evening meal you were given a menu and could pick one of 4 dishes including a vegetarian to be served at your table but you could still use the buffet. Again we thought this was a nice idea. Special mention to Pari who served on our section always pleasant and very efficient. We were half board however you can change your evening meal to lunch if you are going out if you get a voucher from reception.
There are loads of pools with the main one with swim up bar (bar tenders are v entertaining) and the small pool above which cascades into the main pool always popular with plenty of beds a shallow end for kids but also a separate small kids pool. The only thing is that the parasols are fixed and cannot be out down so you are constantly moving your beds out of the shade and many people block the pathways. There are two pools outside of the spa which are on grass and one also has a bar but this is not swim up. There are three small pools behind wing 2 which were very quiet as I don't think many people realised they were there unless you looked on the map and they got the sun in the afternoon. There is also a heated indoor pool at the front of the hotel and the indoor spa pool. You get a towel card to exchange for a beach towel at the pool bars and can exchange everyday if you want for free, you just need to exchange back to towel card for when you check out. You are on the beach and there are free sunbeds and parasols but it is a pebble beach not sand.
Entertainment every night although the bar was very busy even at this time of year with the all inclusive people so we used to go over the road to Movida where cocktails were €4.20 instead of €7.95 at the hotel. The hotel whilst close to Lindos was a bit remote with only one shop one bar and three tavernas near by. Ostria is about 15 min walk and they have a taverna and beach bar, worth a visit large mythos only €2.50. Only 7 minutes by bus €1.60 to Lindos but 2 an hour between 10 and 12.30 and then a bit sporadic with the last bus back at 8pm. Both times we used them we had to stand as even low season they were packed, taxis are €12 euros from hotel and €9 euros if caught from Lindos so worth it if you want a night out there. You must take flat shoes, cars and buses have to stop at the top of the hill and whilst beautiful we went after a shower in the morning and the streets are cobbled with small pebbles which are lethal when wet and we saw several people slipping even in flat shoes. All restaurants have roof terraces. We had a nice meal out but to be honest we thought the hotel food was nicer.
If you want a great hotel with good food, pool scene and a great base to explore the island I cannot recommend this hotel enough.
