As a young couple looking for a last minute deal for our first holiday together we stumbled across the Lindos Mare Hotel and from the reviews had high expectations. However, we were pleased to find that our expectations were exceeded.
The service was exemplary and friendly without being obtrusive. The hotel itself was beautiful and had excellent facilities. We stayed in a twin room with a balcony and sea view and were pleased to find it equipped with a safe and fridge which we could use free of charge. An interesting feature was an electronic blind in the en-suite to allow you to look out over the bay when using the bath and shower.
As the hotel was relatively quiet, if you were looking for entertainment, the hotel location could be a downside. Although Lindos Mare is a short distance to Lindos, the road to get there is hilly, fairly busy and there is no designated walkway. Therefore, getting the bus or a taxi is preferable. Lindos is definitely worth a visit and is very pretty.
The food was amazing, especially the pudding selection in the evening. The variety of food was great. The hotel was very flexible about meals and allowed you to transfer evening meals to vouchers to be used in the a la carte restaurant for either lunch or dinner. We had a late arrival on our first day and were given a voucher which we used for lunch on our last day. We had an excursion planned with a pick-up time before breakfast was served and the hotel was happy to provide a light breakfast for us without additional charge.
We had a perfect week and our only concern is that in the future, other holidays will not match the quality of the Lindos Mare.
